Absolutely beautiful wedding cake! Gorgeous design at a great price! Wanda was willing to make changes a week before the wedding and was very accommodating. The cake was delicious and everyone was talking about the beauty and taste.

Wanda was such a pleasure to work with. She is a sweet, genuine woman (no pun intended).
We wanted a bit of a unique wedding cake that involved our dogs. She nailed the theme. We changed ideas several times and she rolled with our design chan...

LOVED the cake. The florist was supposed to attach the fresh flowers to the cake but that task fell to Wanda. It was exquisite. It tasted fabulous as well. I would highly recommend her

Wanda is amazing. She knew exactly what we wanted and did not disappoint. All of our guests said that the cake was beautiful and really good. Wanda will listen to you and she will make sure the cake is everything you want for your special day. ...
It's no surprise she has award winning cakes.

Wanda is a gem in this industry. She was recommended by our venue (Heritage Hunt Golf Club) and was exactly what we were looking for! The cake was absolutely delicious and everyone at the wedding was praising it. All the options we tried at ...
our tasting were great. We had even tasted a slice she had frozen prior to our appointment and we couldn't tell... and all her example cakes were beautiful, with lots of options. Considering this, she's one of the best values you will find in northern Virginia. The price was very reasonable, and she was able to work with us to get us the cake we want in our budget. Not to mention she's such a fun and welcoming person! We absolutely would choose her again if we were able to do it all over.

Holy moly, Wanda is just THE BEST!!! From the very first steps of contracting and the tasting, Wanda was so patient with all of our questions and kind! Everything is operated out of her home, and it feels like a very personal experience! The ca...

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Wanda. Besides just being a genuinely nice person, Wanda is very easy to work with and knows how to make cakes that are both tasty and works of art. She responds to emails promptly and is not afraid ...
to give her opinion when her client is equivocating on decisions. Wanda was also flexible in customizing a cake flavor for us--spiced rum. I was not disappointed that some guests left before the cake cutting because the leftovers were delicious! Even a week after the wedding, the leftover Kahlua/chocolate chip cake w/raspberry filling was still moist and flavorful! I typically think that fruit fillings are disgusting, but her pineapple and raspberry fillings completely won me over.
I got so many compliments about our cake, which was executed exactly as I envisioned. Several people commented that Wanda's was the only fondant they've ever liked. A relative that is also a professional cake decorator praised both the taste and the decorating. Last but not least, Wanda's pricing is an incredible value in such an expensive area. It was nice that she didn't charge extra for fondant (as most local bakers do) and her delivery fee was also reasonable. We look forward to going back to Wanda for an anniversary cake!

I found Wanda's Cakes through my reception venue. I got the chance to taste her cakes at an open house at my venue, and then when I had my tasting as well. Wanda offers a great variety of cake and filling flavors, and you can do any combination...
you want which is great. I had a 3 tier cake, each tier with different cake and flavor fillings. All were delicious! My favorite was the chocolate and yellow cake with the fudge center. In addition to the taste, the design was also beautiful! Wanda worked with me to figure out exactly what I wanted, and she even ordered extra sugar flowers for me in a specific color to put on my cake. She also provided the lovely silver base so the cake was sitting on something nice. We met 2 times: first for the tasting and design talk, 2nd to finish up the design talk. The only thing was that she put our meeting time on her calendar wrong so was surprised I was there, but she was very accommodating and saw me anyway. Overall great service and delicious, stunning cake!

Wanda made our wedding cake and it was ok. The best part was the decorating, which was exactly what we asked for and turned out very nice. The cake itself was a little dry. She's a little unprofessional, but not rude. We never received an invoi...
ce, e-mail, or phone call to notify us when our payment was due. No communication whatsoever. Then she sends an e-mail the week before our wedding stating that it was PAST due. Not nice to do to a bride so close to her wedding date! Plus she works out of her house so you have to be comfortable with that. The cake wasn't that important to us, so in the end it was no big deal. If the cake is very important to you, then I would recommend spending a little more money for someone better.

And of course the cake was delicious, and we can't wait to dig in to the cake again next year!
