I recently got married and we had The Flour Child make our wedding cake as well as cupcakes. They were beyond good! Everything went so well from the tasting to the actual cake at the reception. Alixe is very nice and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend them!
The Flour Child is an amazing business! Alixe is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and is an absolute joy to work with! She responds to emails quickly and is super professional. The tasting was the best one that my husband and I went to. She was punctual, nice, answered all of our questions, drew a beautiful sketch of the cake I wanted and most importantly had a variety of delicious cakes and icing to try. We knew by the first bite that we wanted Alixe to make our wedding cake and we couldn't be happier with our decision! Our cake was absolutely gorgeous and so delicious! Guests raved about it all night! I would highly recommend The Flour Child to make your wedding cake or any cake for that matter! You will not be disappointed!
To the future brides who are absorbing every review:
I would recommend The Flour Child to anyone for their wedding cake (or any occasion for that matter). Sugar, spice, professionalism, and perfection! Working with the owner, Alixe was extremely easy and fun from the beginning. My wife and I started on the user friendly website to schedule our consultation/tasting. I couldn’t help but smile the day I walked in to the bakery because the atmosphere inspires warmth and cheer. With no vision of design or flavor I quickly apologized for my lack of bridal skills. Alixe laughed unfazed, assured me that I was in great hands, and jumped right in prepared with photos and sketches of cake options. In 10 quick minutes she has walked us through designing the perfect cake for our special day. The hardest part was choosing flavors because everything that we tried was incredible! She said that she would create an invoice and it was emailed quickly. Closer to the wedding I called the shop to let her know that I had found a cake topper. She greeted me with genuine elation about our wedding plans and again put a smile on my face with her warm demeanor. She coordinated with our reception hall to place the cake and everything looked lovely on my wedding day. Often something is lost with vendors and they seem to forget that you’re celebrating something special. The Flour Child made my wife and I feel like our day mattered and they would make sure that everything went smoothly. I hope this helps when you are choosing your bakery! Happy planning and congratulations!
I wholeheartedly recommend Alixe and the Flour Child for anyone in search of a wedding cake. Her flavors are AMAZING - I used to work in a bakery and her cakes and icings are probably the best I've ever tasted! My parents took the extra cake home and we all had some with brunch the next day because it was that good :) She did a beautiful job on our vintage/wildflower tiered cake and got our vision right away. She was welcoming and down to earth and professional all at once, from day one all the way to our wedding day. Highly, highly recommended!
Alixe is the absolute best! When my fiance and I first met with her we just loved her enthusiasm and passion for what she does. We told her what we had in mind for our cake and she created a beautiful masterpiece. The cake was not only beautiful, it tasted delicious! It was so moist and flavorful. Alixe even made us cookies as well and they were delicious! We had some leftover cake after the wedding and I could not be happier...now we get to indulge for a few more days! I would highly recommend Alixe to anyone! :)
Alixe fit great with our personality and she got exactly how to create our cake for our theme. The best part was it TASTED GREAT TOO! So many times you find a nice looking cake that tastes okay, but her work is beautiful and tastes wonderful.
Alixe and the flour child was great for our wedding. The cake was absolutely delicious and beautiful as well. Alixe worked with me to make sure the cake was exactly how I wanted it and was very thorough throughout the entire planning process.
I would highly recommend the flour child to anyone!
Alixe at The Flour Child is AMAZING!! She is so pleasant to work with and is incredibly creative. Our guests are still talking about the delicious cake and favors. We are so pleased!! We look forward to visiting her bakery every chance we get.
We were having our wedding in Lancaster but we live in New Jersey. So we asked our caterer to recommend someone they trusted for our wedding cake. We were very particular about our cake. We wanted all butter cream, no fondant but we wanted the beauty that you sometimes get more easily with fondant. Well Flour Child delivered a beautiful cake. Lace and swiss dot cake that was delicious. You can't go wrong with Flour Child!
This is the yummiest wedding cake you will ever eat! My guests loved the flavors too. Upon meeting Alixe at the Flour Child, I knew our cake was going to be in amazing baker hands. My best friends used, The Flour Child, for their wedding cake a few years ago, so I knew from the beginning I wanted their wedding cake! Alixe gets it, she is talented, and knows her stuff. She is also, in my opinion, the buttercream queen! And makes fantastic butter cream icings like maple walnut and irish cream! Alixe delivered her cake in person and also put the flowers on herself at the venue on the day of our wedding. I highly recommend, The Flour Child, to anyone who wants their friends and family to remember how fantastic the cake was at their wedding!
I had a very specific vision for my cake table. A giant cake with lots of smaller family cakes to accompany it. When I walked in, and got a chance to see my cake table, I was completely blown away. It was like Alixe pulled the vision right out of my head! During our tasting Alixe even helped me win over my mother to have a fake large cake witih 10 (thats right 10!) smaller cakes of different flavors. The largest cake looked so real my brother thought we were throwing cake away at the end of the night during the clean up process. Alixe even put different decorations on the cakes, including the enlisted USMC emblem to make all my cakes look spectacular! She even was okay with having 3 cakes my family baked intermixed in the setup to go along with my vision. Not only did they look good, they tasted even better. Out of 10 8-10in round cakes we had 1.5 cakes leftover the next day, and none by that Monday! My mother also had her make a cake for my bridal shower which was gorgeously decorated as well. Over all If I lived closer I would have all my cakes made by Alixe and the Flour Child!
If you are having a wedding in Lancaster and want an affordable, delicious, beautiful cake-the call Flour Child today. Alixe was super helpful and flexible - we had so many ideas and she was able to make our vision a reality. The cupcakes and cake were delicious. I even called last minute and had her make a grooms cake and she didn't even stress. Just said yes and it was a beautiful surprise. I would use her again for upcoming showers, baby events, and birthday parties. Out of my vendors we used on our wedding day - she was one that I met with, ordered, and didn't have to worry about the job getting done. She took care of everything. Thank you again!!!!!!!!
Extremely professional and easy to work with! After our initial tasting there was no doubt who our wedding cake vendor would be. If it is any indication of our delicious our cake was, I went up for a piece at the end of the night and there was not a piece a left! Alixe you did an incredible job.
Alixe is AMAZING! I can not stress that enough. She was so easy to work with and flexible with everything. Our tasting was very laid back and comfortable. She had a lot of awesome ideas for our wedding cake and when I saw it in person, it was even more beautiful than I thought it would be. We got so many compliments on the cake and people asking who made it. I've worked with Alixe on cakes before and she never disappoints. I will be continuing to get my cakes from her!
Alixe was great. She gave us so many options and had us laughing during the sampling appt. The cake was beautiful and delicious and the price was so reasonable. Highly recommend!
I used Alixe for my Nov. 2 wedding and was thrilled with the conversation prior to booking, the actual tasting was not just tasty, but elegant. Alixe was a pleasure to work with! The carrot cake is absolutely amazing...and I really am not a cake person!! :)
