Jim created the most fabulous cake for our daughter, Morgan's, wedding. He captured the intricate lace of her dress on one of the tiers along with her bouquet flowers. The lemon with lemon curd was a dream, so light and moist. Jim is a true ...

Jim and Alejandro were the first (and only) shop that I met with regarding my 10-10-2020 wedding cake. The cake testing process was so seamless. Alejandro asked questions while Jim sketched the cake. The end result was a sketching of a cake tha...
t fit all of my needs.
All of their cakes are delicious. So, picking a flavor was a bit more difficult. But, we decided to go with the Almond-amaretto butter cake. It was a huge hit with the guests.
Jim and Alejandro are so talented and kind. And, their cakes are not only beautiful with such intricate details, they’re moist and so delicious. I highly recommend them for your wedding cake needs!

Jim absolutely outdid himself with both my groom's cake and wedding cake. The amount of work and detail that went into both of them was unreal. He is a true artist with buttercream, fondant, gum paste, and any other form of sugar you can thin...
Not only are his cakes out of this world beautiful, but the flavors and taste are amazing too. The almond amaretto, vanilla raspberry, and chocolate kahlua were a huge hit at our events, and there were no slices left over!
Jim's work is well worth every penny spent. Amazing!

BY FAR one of the best experiences of my wedding planning. Absolutely loved my cake tasting and meeting with Jim. We drove to his most beautiful location for a tasting and tried everything he made that week - my mom and I were absolutely in H...
EAVEN! Then, we gave Jim and Alejandro a few thoughts on what our wedding theme was like. Jim sketched his idea right then and there, signed it...and now I have a beautiful piece of artwork and an amazing memory. My fabulous florist, Lotus Flower introduced me to Jim...and now I just need another reason to celebrate with a fabulous cake!!! YUM!

There is a reason Jim Smeal is known as being the best. His cakes not only are a work of art, but they taste delicious!! And he made a special, gluten-free cake for me so I could enjoy my wedding day cake. Not only did he make me a separate ...

When my husband and I first met Jim, we were set on not having a wedding cake but my mother and wedding planner insisted that we at least talk to the cake designer. We showed up at his office/house with no expectations. Then my husband and I we...
re left speechless when we tried the cake samples and watched Jim sketch a picture of what was going to be our wedding cake. I left the meeting dreaming of my wedding cake (remember, the one I didn't want)!
Needless to say, my husband and I decided on a 2-tier wedding cake that was absolutely breathetaking in both design and taste. Our guests were speechless when they saw the cake (just as we were at the tasting). My husband and I do not normally enjoy eating cake; but Jim's cakes are unbelieveable and leave you wanted another piece even weeks later.

On top of the amazing taste, the cake was absolutely GORGEOUS. I sent a picture of my dress and they made the design - I couldn't' have thought up a better design myself! It was beautiful! They're the best!

Jim and his partner Alejandro made the cake for mine and my husbands April 2011 wedding in Charleston. Let me say that hands-down, that was the most beautiful and delicious cake that I have ever seen or tasted (not to be biased...).
weeks before our wedding, my planner had called and asked if we still wanted Jim to do our original design for our cake, which included a woodsy, fern design with branches and moss. She then said that he wanted to try to incorporate the whimsical design that was on our invitation into the cake. I said - "Sure, it doesn't matter, I trust him to make it beautiful." And ladies and gentlemen, let me tell you - it was a vision. I couldn't have asked for a more perfectly detailed, beautiful cake. This man can make his buttercream look like fondant and can put every brides vision into reality. He is truly amazing!
We had three different flavors: Almond-Amaretto, Chocolate-Kahlua, and an Orange-Almond. Each flavor was more amazing than the next - many of our guests told me after the wedding that they had tried all three flavors and still had to go back for more! That should tell you something!!
Jim also has great prices on his cakes - while many bakers charge an initial fee per slice, a fee which increases with every little detail you add - Jim charges a basic price for the cake and then if it is to be covered in hand-made sugar flowers will modify that price, but he is very affordable for a baker!!
Just know that if you want him, GET HIM EARLY!! He tends to book out about 9-12 months ahead of time!! And trust me, he is worth it!!

So so so very happy we decided on Wedding Cakes by Jim Smeal for our cake!! The cake was AMAZING!! Not only was it even more beautifull than I could have ever imagined, but even though we had ordered more cake than we needed (enough to feed 125...
for 90 guests), we were only left with our top tier (saving it for our 1st anniversary) because 99% of our guests went back for more!! A month after our wedding day and we're still getting so many compliments on the cake! I wold recommend them to anyone.
