Taste. It is often the most overlooked detail when shopping for wedding cakes. Taste is why we eat cake in the first place, and it will be the thing your guests remember most about your wedding cake. At Albemarle Baking Company, taste is what we are most passionate about, and it is why our cakes, while simple and elegant, taste so good. Give us a call, and find out why people in Charlottesville come to us first for flavor.

Absolutely delicious

We worked with Albemarle baking company twice: for our micro-wedding and for the larger celebration event a year later. This bakery provided beautiful and delicious cakes; we have received many compliments on them since the events, some going so far as to say that “it was the best wedding cake we’ve had.” We loved that the bakery provided non-traditional options for the exterior of the cake---we chose marzipan layered over buttercream, a delicious alternative to normal thick buttercream or fondant. The cake arrived on time to our venue, and made its way to the florals / staging area and kitchen without incident or us having to worry about coordination. We highly recommend Albemarle Baking Company for your event, and particularly recommend that you try the chocolate and praline cake.

Thank you, Alb. Baking Co and Gerry!

I have loved Albemarle Baking Company for as long as I can remember. The Rossberg children grew up going there and we're quick to introduce out of town visitors - anyone, really - to ABC. About a week ago, I had Princess Cake at my wedding at Alumni Hall and it was AMAZING (as usual). Gerry was delightful to work with: prompt, professional, kind etc. etc. THANK YOU, Albemarle Baking Company! I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to make my wedding cake!

This was our dream wedding cake! It was not only stunning to look at, but the taste was the best cake we have ever had! We knew right when we tried the princess cake that it had to be our wedding cake. We are still receiving compliments. Gerry was flexible to work with and provided excellent service. We are so thrilled you were apart of our special day!!
