Ashely is wonderful! I love her new cake cottage that she has her consults. She provided wonderful options for tasting and offered to make some others if needed. While we were tasting samples she also drew a sketch of the most beautiful cake! I cannot wait to have her provide the cake for my wedding in April 2016!!!!!
Ashley is someone who really enjoys what she does. You know it from the moment you meet her. Not only does she enjoy making your wedding cake, but she enjoys designing it as well. I had met Ashley at the Carolina Inn Bridal Show and was hooked at first taste of her cakes. I was still in the very beginning stages of my wedding planning so it was over 6 months before I contacted her. Ashley was expanding and was building her new super adorable cake cottage, she was not meeting with anyone during that time. I was really bummed out as I knew she is who I wanted to make my cake. As a backup, I met with 3 other cake vendors and none of them tasted as great, but most importantly they did not provide the customer service that Ashley did. She is extremely warm and takes time to really understand what you want in your wedding cake. She was also very excited to design it. My wedding cake came out beautifully and it tasted AMAZING! Ashley Cakes is hands down the best - you have to meet her at her cake cottage and you'll see what I am talking about!
Ashley and her husband were a pleasure to work with. We loved meeting with them, watching them quickly draw up a sketch of our cake, and then quickly (while we didn't even notice) scanning it into their computer to add color and make it come to life. Not only was their design exactly what we wanted, their cakes are ACTUALLY delicious!! AND, you can choose 2 cake/icing combos PER layer. We ended up with 6 flavors total, a little for everyone. It was incredible. And we didn't even have to freezer burn our cake since they include a 1 year anniversary mini cake in their contract. They were such a pleasure to work with.
Simply the best!! Ashley and her husband were a pleasure to work with. Though we met with and tried many cakes from different cake vendors/bakeries, all we kept hearing about was how good Ashley Cakes was, and it was all for good reason. At the taste testing, the couple listened to what we were looking for, showed us lots of different designs, and then sketched out one just for us. The design was exactly what we were looking for (they were able to find a compromise for my husband and I, not easy to do), and on the wedding day, the cake looked exactly like the sketch; absolutely no surprises on what you were going to get! Not only was the cake beautiful, but the cake itself was delicious. Our guests raved about the sweet potato cake, in particular, and the ability to pick more than one flavor was a nice added touch. Although responsiveness can be a little on the slower end (they are an extremely busy couple), everything else makes up for that! We are very much looking forward to our anniversary cake in just under a year:)
I loved my cake from Ashley Cakes and Ashley was great to work with!
Our cake was delicious (moist, light, flavorful) and looked amazing! Ashley was super sweet and very helpful, and flexible with our delivery time when our day-of plans shifted due to bad weather.
Our wedding cake was absolutely beautiful and delicious! Ashley's ideas and drawing (based on our invitation) came out beautifully and I am glad that I trusted her. I only heard rave reviews from the guests in regards to the look and taste of the cake. Can't wait until our one year anniversary to receive our anniversary cake!
My daughter's wedding cake was fabulous and delicious! Ashley was great through the whole process!
Delicious cake! In fact, some of my guests raved that it was the best wedding cake they ever had. It was so moist and remained that way days after the wedding. We're already looking forward to our first anniversary cake, a special treat Ashley provides to her couples. The cake was also beautiful and it was an awesome experience to sit and talk with her about what we wanted, then watch her sketch out what we desired. So wonderful to walk in the day of the wedding and see the cake we designed together! We contacted Ashley Cakes in the midst of their construction on the new cake cottage, and I think this impacted the level of responsiveness a touch. However, their professionalism never wavered and I never doubted that they would deliver as promised. In fact, my new husband has already asked if we could get her to bake his birthday cake! LOL. I wholeheartedly recommend Ashley Cakes - you will not be disappointed!
Ashley Cakes created my dream cake! My husband and I went to meet with Ashley and her husband, Josh for a consultation/tasting and we were so impressed. We sat in their office and chatted a little about our vision for the wedding and ideas I had about the cake, and while we were talking she was drawing up a sketch of the final product. The one she came up with was so great and exactly what I was hoping for. When we left my husband and I were chowing down on the cakes while we were on our way home - each flavor was so delicious! The cake on the day was perfect, and exactly what we had envisioned. People were also telling me how delicious it was, which was also a plus! Looking forward to our Anniversary cake already!!
I LOVED OUR CAKE!!!!! Ashley and her hubby made the most beautiful wedding cake I've ever seen, on our wedding day. It was a dream and it was delicious too!! Great couple to work with, reasonably priced and professional. I would use them again any day and recommend them to anyone! I think I walked around to every table at our wedding saying "look at the cake! isn' t it gorgeous!" like an idiot because I was so happy with it. haha.
Great vendor, Raleigh area weddings - Ashley's Cakes - these two go together like peanut butter and jelly!
We are the father and mother of the bride. During our selection process for a cake vendor, we met with Ashley and Josh to review our options. Ashley and Josh were excellent to work with and it did not take long to know Ashley Cakes was our final stop! They helped us make the best decisions and the final product was outstanding! I would recommend Ashley Cakes to everyone!
Ashley cakes was the best decision we made for our wedding. We live in another state and they were going out of their way to give us the best possible experience. My parents who live in Raleigh were able to meet with them and taste cakes to decide if they were the vendors we wanted. We thought that was all we would get. But no they booked a time to meet with me (the bride) when I was in NC for my bridal shower. I was able to taste all the cakes. Not only were they delicious but also Ashley and josh were warm and so kind to me. I felt like their only customer and a VIP. wait there is more!! My husband flew in for his bachelor party and they made time for him to try the cakes as well ( the only part he really wanted to do in the wedding and thought he wouldn't be able to due to distance). They went above and WAY BEYOND our expectations and we recommend Ashley cakes to everyone. The Devon was breathtaking and the taste was exquisite!! 10 stars for Ashley Cakes!!
Our wedding cake was phenomenal! It was a work of art and very tasty! Thanks again Ashley
Ashley provided my wife and I with the cake of our dreams for our wedding! When we were looking for wedding cake vendors, all the recommendations from both websites and other vendors pointed to Ashley Cakes, and with good reason. From our very first meeting with Ashley, she made us feel comfortable and welcome, and she was able to perfectly incorporate my wife's vision for our wedding cake. She brought every detail to life, and gave it a personal touch that made it feel unique and incredibly special. Elegant, but not too overstated, the cake was a beautiful centerpiece to our wedding. When we first tasted the sample cakes she gave us, my wife and I ate an entire box of samples in one night, but it was okay as we were months away from the wedding! She had diverse and original flavors, and none of the cakes, sample or the actual wedding cake, tasted dry or too bland or sweet. The taste, look, and presentation of the cake were simply perfect. We would recommend Ashley Cakes in a heartbeat for anyone looking for the perfect wedding cake!
Absolutely loved our cake! Both gorgeous and delicious. Could not have been happier.
