    Absolutely Delicious

    I highly recommend this bakery for your wedding cake. The whole experience was incredible. We ordered a cake tasting box to-go that had our top choices of cake and different fillings on the side so we could mix and match and decide exactly how we wanted the cake. We chose cherry chipper and almond cake with chocolate and strawberry filling. We also had a barely semi-naked buttercream finish on the outside. The cake was meant for 30 people but I do wish we ordered a bigger cake because it went so fast! Everyone loved the cake! We received many compliments on the cake. We also ordered vanilla cupcakes for whoever didn't want cake and I heard those were terrific too! Gunilla was also a pleasure to work with! She was so kind and helpful. The cake was definitely a highlight at our wedding.

    Couldn't be happier

    I was nervous ordering my wedding cake from 1200 miles away. Never tasted or seen anything in person from this bakery. So I sent a photo of what I was looking for and it was beyond beautiful. It was exactly what I was hoping for and delicious as well. I am so happy I found American Dream cakes. They were a please to work with.

    American Dream Cakes makes a beautiful cake that is as clean as fondant, but with a buttercream frosting that tastes much better than fondant. I was amazed the first time I saw one of their cakes. The artwork is beautiful.
