What a beautiful cake!

I live in Atlanta and hired Carolyn based on her reviews and pictures of her cakes. I wasn't able to do a tasting. I sent her a picture of a cake I found online and she nailed it! The cake tasted amazing as well. If you are on the fence as to who you want to hire definitely choose Carolyn.

Beautiful and tasted wonderful

We were very happy with our wedding cake from Cakes by Carolyn. The colors were perfect to the wedding and placement of the flowers we provided done beautifully. They were easy to work with from the cake tasting to my final trip to review the placement. Thank you!

Tasty cakes

Our wedding cake was the talk of the reception we did blueberry cake with chocolate Bavarian cream. So mouth watering. The ladies in the store are so nice to talk to and LGBTQ+ friendly. Could not ask for a better experience.
