    Incredible cake!!

    We were married on 12/11/2021 and decided to go with Bean Counter as they are the preferred vendor for our venue, and we are so glad we did!! The cake was absolutely exquisite and we got lots of compliments on how unique and beautiful the design was. The cake itself was delicious and our guests couldn’t get enough! Working with Alice was a breeze and she is very thorough and responsive. Don’t miss out on the tasting so you can sample a few flavors - you’ll have a hard time picking between all the amazing flavors she’s put together! Highly recommend!

    Still dreaming about this cake…

    One of the highlights of wedding planning is the cake tasting, and if you choose Bean Counter Bakery, you’re really in for a treat! We chose Bean Counter Bakery because not only did their flavors blow us away, but we were also excited to support a local, woman-owned business. We chose a spice cake with an apple caramel filling and buttercream frosting and, oh man, just remembering it is making me hungry! The cake was beautiful and absolutely divine. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how delicious the cake was: delicately moist, not overwhelmingly sweet, and perfectly fitting for a New England fall wedding. The Bean Counter team was a joy to work with and our wedding day delivery was seamless. I’m still thinking about the cake 🤤. I highly recommend trying this bakery for your dessert needs.

I first met Alice of The Bean Counter a few years ago at a bridal fair. Not only were her cakes delicious, creative, and beautiful, but she and her staff couldn't have been more friendly. I have referred more than a few clients and friends to them, and everyone has been delighted. One client ordered a carrot cake and raved about it so much that the next Fathers' Day, I ordered one for my father-in-law, who is a carrot-cake connoisseur always on the lookout for the best one. He can stop looking. :) I know that when I recommend Bean Counter to someone, I have nothing to worry about. My friends and clients are in the best of hands.
