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!

Cakes By Carolynn did an amazing job with our cake! The majority of it had to be done over the phone and email because I'm not local and they did it exactly the way I wanted. It also tasted great, which was really important to us as well. We got their signature flavor, which I hadn't expected to do until the tasting and it was delicious. I had several pictures that I sent to them that I wanted to combine with different bells and whistles and they did it perfectly! I would definitely recommend them!

Cakes by Carolynn made our wedding and grooms cake last weekend. I provided them a picture of a mint green wedding cake I found online with gold details and pink roses on top, along with a baseball grooms cake. They absolutely nailed it! Both cakes were perfect! Taste was amazing very moist and we couldn't have been happier! They delivered directly to the venue. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Thank you for such a wonderful job!

Jessica,
You are so very welcome! I also loved the design you chose and the Baseball Groom's cake with the top hat was so cool. Great ideas! We appreciate you and your recommendation to other brides and grooms about Cakes by Carolynn. Thank you and we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

We were married at the Grand Plaza Resort Friday Aug 22nd 2014. Cakes by Carolyn was highly recommend by the Grand Plaza Resort. I took a picture of the cake I found on the internet that I absolutely loved. Cakes by Carolynn had no problem making the cake for us. Cakes by Carolynn recommended we spray the cake with a sugar coating. So glad I took their recommendation. The cake was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and tasted amazing. All the guest loved the cake especially my grandson who ate 4 pieces. I highly recommend Cakes by Carolynn.

I got married August 7th and the cake was one of the highlights from our reception. In addition to the cakes being fabulous. Ours was Raspberry Amaretto. The staff was so helpful. I live in Texas and had original contracted to have my cake down by someone else that was recommend by our wedding coordinator. However, the baker backed out a week before my wedding. I read some reviews for Cakes by Carolynn and they were all fantastic. I called and explained the situation. They told me to come in when I got in town and they would help me out. I showed up on Tuesday and they were able to have the cake done for my wedding on Thursday evening. I will definitely be here again the next time I am in Florida.

A Special Touch was more than willing to accommodate me for my wedding cake just one day before they closed up shop for vacation. Bonnie made my process completely painless, even with the added anxiety of being from NY and never being able to do a tasting. The cake looked identical to what I asked for and we could have been happier!

Thank you for your kind words. It is our goal to make the wedding preparation "painless" and fun! Thankful for you!
