Cakes by Carolynn was great to work with for our destination wedding. We had cupcakes instead of a cake and they turned out great!

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 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!

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!

My husband and I planned our wedding out of state from Ohio and did not taste our wedding cake prior to ordering. Cakes by Carolynn made us not regret our decision. Their cake tasted so delicious and our guests were very pleased! Planning on the phone was smooth and stress free and they really worked with me and my ideas. I also ordered a groom's cake that ended up better than I envisioned! They delivered our cake to our small reception at an outdoor restaurant and set up our cake topper and everything. Their raspberry amaretto swirl cake with Bavarian cream filling was melt in your mouth delightful! Our groom's cake was simple chocolate and just as good! You can't go wrong with Cakes by Carolynn.

Exactly what we wanted - excellent value - can't wait until our first anniversary to enjoy the top layer of our wedding cake (again)! Our cake was beautiful, and communication was great to get the shop our colors and also to incorporate our cake topper (we hand delivered).

We went with cakes by carolynn because it was recommended to us by our florist. It was the best decision. We went with an amaretto raspberry that was out of this world. Our cake topper is coconut which we couldn't wait for our anniversary. Very delicious. I will be back to get a cake for our anniversary. They worked great with our florist who delivered our cake decor. Just stop in and try a cupcake you will be hooked.

Thanks Debbie! We look forward to "hooking" many more cupcake lovers after your kind words. Not only are they moist and yummy, they are inexpensive. Congratulations, we wish you love!

We got married at the Grand Plaza on May 1st and Cakes by Carolynn was highly recommended. Since we are from NY and had a destination wedding...we couldn't come by for a tasting and went by reviews and recommendations. Well we were so happy we chose Cakes by Carolynn because the cake was delicious and so beautiful!! Our guests couldn't believe how good the cake was and talked about it all night...even the next day! If you are getting married in St. Pete...you must get the cake from Cakes by Carolynn!! Highly recommended!!!

We contacted Carolynn's because it is well known in our area. We found that other companies charge for a tasting, they did not. The deposit was low and payment terms flexible. I created my own design for the cake and had my florist collaborrate with flowers. I emailed photos of a design and they did a great job recreating it! It was delivered on time, the cake was gorgeous and some of my guests said it was the best wedding cake they've ever had. Strongly recommend!
