Instead of a traditional wedding cake, my husband & I chose cupcakes so that we could have a variety of flavors. On a visit to Harrisburg, we stopped by the PA Bakery & picked up some cupcakes - delicious!!! We set up a cake tasting to try different flavor combinations. When we arrived, the cupcakes were ready to go & the staff allowed us time to taste them before discussing what we wanted to order. We selected 5 different cupcake flavors & chose an Italian rum cake for our topper to cut. Sarah provided suggestions & guidance but allowed us to be as creative as we wanted with the flavors.
On our wedding day, the cupcakes & cupcake tower were delivered on time & set up at our venue by PA Bakery staff. All of our guests were impressed by the variety of flavors & raved about the flavors & freshness.
When we returned the cupcake tower the next day, the manager was not available to refund our deposit but returned the money to our credit card within a day or two of return.
We can't wait for our next trip out to Harrisburg to pick up some more cupcakes!
Our cake was not only stunning but it was so delicious! I've never tasted a wedding cake this good! fantastic job!! we also ordered sugar cookies as favors that we excellent as well!
We decided to go with Pennsylvania Bakery for our wedding cake because we heard wonderful things about their cakes. The cupcakes and cake we selected were delicious and everything came out perfect just like I had requested! My only negative comment about Pennsylvania Bakery was the lack of the staffs communication. I must have had multiple people dealing with my order and I was consistently having to check to make sure things were being done communicated and they weren't. I had multiple phone calls from different employees all asking me the same questions about my orders.
Our cake was absolutely perfect. It was identical to the picture I provided and the detail was better than I could have imagined. The cake tasted amazing and all of our guests told us afterwards how great the cake was.
PA Bakery did both my wedding cake and a groom's cake for my fiance for our rehearsal dinner. It should be noted that another local bakery backed out of making our groom's cake last minute (The Monday before!) and PA Bakery stepped right up and made it--no problem at all. Not only is PA Bakery delicious, but they worked around my gluten allergy for both our testing and our reception. They are amazing and so helpful at every step of the process. Everyone kept saying how delicious our cake tasted and I LOVED how the final product turned out. I would highly recommend!
Cake and cupcakes were delicious, and they had so many flavors and options!
I absolutely loved my wedding cake. Guests told me it was the best cake they had ever eaten. They have so many different options and styles available and deliver right to the venue.
We ordered a small cake and cupcakes for our wedding and could not have been more happy! Everything was delicious! The cakes were moist and delicious! My guests wanted seconds! Luckily we ordered too many and now have cupcakes for days! Even frozen they still taste amazing!!
Our cake was PERFECT. I wanted a cake that was a little different than your average wedding cake and the made it look EXACTLY how I wanted it! They made the initial tasting super fun and when it was all said and done on my wedding day, it was DELICIOUS. Guests were raving about our cake.
We absolutely LOVED our Cake. It as everything we could have imagined. All our guest loved the Strawberry flavor. Easy to deal with and lots of options to choose from.
The most delicious cake! Compliments from all guests!!! So moist and beautiful!! Thank you - Mr. and Mrs. Hippensteel
The Pennsylvania bakery did a great job with my cake! They were very easy to work with and listened to what I wanted. They gave me a beautiful and delicious cake! Everyone at my wedding wanted more!
Looked great and tasted great!! They were on time delivering to our venue as well. we found a pic online of what we wanted our wedding cake to look like and they did it exactly like it!! Very pleased!!
I grew up going to this bakery, and all of my birthday cakes came from here. I was very excited to wok with them on my wedding cake, but I realized very quickly that this vendor would not work for us. I scheduled our tasting a month in advance and paid the $20 fee over the phone when I booked the tasting. Imagine our surprise when we showed up for the tasting and they had no record of our appointment. However, my credit card was charged the $20 fee weeks earlier. The manager never apologized to us. The staff went around the bakery pulling slices of various flavors we requested, and just plopped them down in front of us. Many were still partially frozen. We were left alone to look at sample books, and when the girl returned after we tasted the flavored that we're available, she immediately said "so what cake do you want to order?" We were shocked to learn about all the extra fees charged for every little thing. By the time she priced out everything we wanted, it ended up being hundreds of dollars over the boutique wedding cake place that we also tried. I think the icing on the cake (pun intended) was that they were changing out their window displays that day. As a result, the tasting area was covered in garbage cans, decorations, and older dusty displays. They pushed everything off of one table so we could sit down, but one of their staff members kept asking my mom to hand him stuff behind her chair. We were surprised by how we were treated as long-time customers, so unfortunately we had to go with another vendor. It's a shame. I think we'll be back for day-to-day bakery needs, but I won't trust them with something as important as a wedding cake.
I had wedding pie, instead of a wedding cake. Guests loved the uniqueness of it, plus I was able to offer a variety of pies instead of just one or two different layers cake, so everyone had something they liked. The pies were delicious and in comparison to a cake quite affordable. PA Bakery made the process so easy. I went in for a tasting, selected different pies, and order them and the delivery of them all on my lunch break. It was probably the easiest element to plan for the whole wedding-- which as a busy bride I really appreciated. I can't say enough good things about PA Bakery-- and neither could my guests!
The Pennsylvania Bakery was great at fulfilling my vision of our wedding cake. Having wanted cheesecake bites, with a smaller cake for us to cut, I wasn’t sure how it would all come together. The Pennsylvania Bakery is affordable, good with communication, and open minded in accommodating their customers. They thought of every detail, down to the trays the bites would be presented on. The end product was GORGEOUS and tasted delicious. Overall, it’s hard to stop in there and not find something delicious, glad to see their wedding cake is no exception! :) Special thanks to Julia and the manager for working with us. Well done, PA Bakery!
