Cakes by Carolynn did such an amazing job on our cake, we had a three tiered cake with strawberry filing and it was to die for. Bonnie was so wonderful to work with, all we did was give her a picture and she created a more beautiful version of what we expected. We would absolutely recommend their services and can't wait to order our Anniversary cake!

Cakes by Carolynn did an amazing job. I had a 3 tiered naked cake with fresh berries. The cake was rasberry amaretto and butternutt. Every guest said it was the best cake they had ever had. It tasted delicious and was moist even without the outside frosting. I can't wait to order more cakes from here.

From the first day I drove past this shop on my way to a Rays baseball game, I KNEW they were going to do my wedding cake (and this was before I'd even met my husband). I just had a remarkable feeling when I drove by that the place would be amazing, and years later when I went in for a tasting I got confirmation. The cakes are sinfully delicious from cake to frosting to filling, AND they are elegantly designed to the bride's choice. It is difficult to find a place where the cake actually tastes as good as it looks, and I am really picky about my desserts being a self-taught baker. There is nothing I appreciate more than a homemade cake from scratch that tastes as amazing as it looks. My husband and I were so happy with our choice that we ate the top layer instead of freezing it, just so that we would have an excuse to buy a fresh one on our anniversary! Please do not be fooled by the outside (or even inside) look of the shop. Just go in for a tasting and I promise you will not be disappointed :)

Cakes by Carolynn is an amazing place to get your wedding cake. I purchased a white cake with icing filling and it was to die for. When I first called they were so helpful and informational. They gave me plenty of options and made sure I knew they could pretty much do anything I wanted with my wedding cake. They truly cared about the finish product. The wedding cake was truly beautiful and delicious!!

Cakes by Carolynn was so accommodating and easy to use! I sent them a picture of the cake I wanted and chose the flavors I wanted from their long list. I told them when and where I wanted it delivered and I sent them a check in the mail. After our ceremony we arrived at the restaurant and the cake was already there all set up. It was exactly how I wanted it to be and it tasted great!! I would recommend them to anyone!! :)

We ordered a cake originally entirely b the web as we were doing a semi- destination wedding. We went with their top awarded cake ( amaretto with raspberry filling) and were equally pleased when we did our cake tasting. That cake was excellent and we had no left- over from the reception. Additionally, we received such positive feedback from our guests who begged for seconds! This cake was also worth every penny and I found it even more competitive than Publix. We are comingg back to order another small cake eith the same flavor for the first year anniversary celebration. Totally recommend this awesome bakery. Cake was beautiful!

We purchased a wedding cake from them via site or taste initially unseen. However, we had the opportunity not only to visit the bakery but tried their award winning amaretto and raspberry filling cake. It was amazing and our guests agreed as well! The cake was a hit and we had NONE left. The price was well under the the estimate we received from Publix and we were so happy we went to this vendor. I recommend this bakery as the bakery of choice for your wedding cake. We will be back year 1 to get the same cake to commemorate the anniversary of the wedding.

They made my wedding cake as part of our package with Grand Plaza Hotel (venue). We went with a yellow cake with buttercream frosting, it was absolutely delicious!! We supplied them with a few different pictures for ideas as to what we wanted for our wedding cake and they created exactly what we wanted! Most weddings I've been to I have not been a big fan of the cake---and this was fresh, light and tasty! I would use them again in the future!

Cakes by Carolynn was so great to work with! We planned our wedding from Maryland so we did everything through email and over the phone. They completely understood our vision for the wedding and grooms cake! Both cakes were delicious and the staff was so nice! I would definitely recommend Cakes by Carolynn to anyone looking for a beautiful and yummy wedding/special occasion cake!
