Im not sure what was going on with this person, we signed a contract and paid her in full and we did end up getting our cake, but she was never responsive, her ast. was rude, and they didnt listen to the details we wanted on the cake. I would not recommed her, you spend a lot of money for the best day of your life, you should not get this treatment.
We used Great Cakes for our wedding cake. What a disappointment. The cake topper was wrong (a more expensive cake topper had been purchased), the cake was not put on a cake stand (even though the cake stand had been paid for) and the white cake decorations dripped all down the blue cake. It looked absolutely HORRIBLE!!!!! The wedding reception was at a different venue than the wedding so we did not see the cake until we arrived at the reception. Had we seen it ahead of time, we would have removed the cake from public view. This wedding was not a summer wedding and the reception was inside so there is no reason for the all the icing to drip down the sides of the cake other than poor workmanship. It looked like a zebra cake. I would not recommend Great Cakes to anyone planning an event. There are plenty of quality cake makers on the Outer Banks and I wish I had chosen someone else for our wedding cake.
My husband and I had cupcakes instead of a cake for our wedding. We looked at several options in the OBX area, but Great Cakes seemed to have the best value and their reviews were great. Planning a wedding from afar, it made me nervous to order cupcakes without having tasted them, but we went with Red Velvet and Key Lime Pie flavors anyway. We needn't have worried. The cupcakes were delicious and the guests absolutely raved about the Key Lime, one of their signature flavors. We were lucky enough to have leftover cupcakes and I must admit I was on a steady diet of Key Lime cupcakes for days after the wedding. I would absolutely recommend Great Cakes cupcakes to anyone!
YUM! Everyone loved our Key Lime Bliss cake. We loved the look and the taste!
What an awesome cake for my daughters wedding! Everyone loved it. Such a pleasure to work with!
Great Cakes did an awesome job on my wedding cake and it tasted delicious! We chose the signature Key Lime Bliss cake - our guests are still raving about it!
Marsha was great to work with! She showed up right on time and delivered a flawless cake.
They are the best in the OBX - I will be using them again!
One of my favorite things about my wedding was the dessert. We got a cake and cupcakes. All tasted AMAZING!!! Marsha was also very nice and responsive.
The people at Great Cakes were very professional and helpful. My wedding was in NC and I am from Pittsburgh, so they had to help me out a little bit extra with different quotes and ideas. I didn't even make it down to taste the cake before I ordered it, but I trusted them. I'm so glad I did! My wedding was 3 weeks ago and I'm still hearing about how great it was. I didn't have to stress about it at all. It was delivered, set up and looking beautiful by the start of the reception and it was delicious.
All I can say is the key lime wedding cake is amazing!
Marsha was so great to work with! Loved my wedding cupcakes with small cake on top! The flavors were amazing and her prices were reasonable too! Key Lime Bliss is relish, what a treat! Cant wait to have her make our anniversary cupcakes!!
Cake was amazing!! We loved the Key Lime!
These people made my wedding cake in the shape of a house!!! not only was it beautifully crafted, but it was also delicious! not too sweet, and just wonderful!
Cake was so delicious!!! The presentation was beautiful and everyone loved the cake (vanilla chocolate chip with chocolate gnache and key lime bliss!).
Their Key Lime Bliss is the best cake ever!!!
Our wedding cake from Great Cakes was quite possibly the most delicious cake I have ever had. Marsha helped to arrange the right size, theme, and personal touches to match our beachy theme and our taste buds. The cake was complete with little white chocolate seashells and color coordinated Adirondack chairs! She was a pleasure to work with. I can't wait for our one year anniversary to eat the rest of that cake!
Great Cakes made our wedding cake and it was absolutely delicious!! All the guest were amazed at how good it was and how beautifully it was decorated!!
