The best cake we have literally ever eaten

I cannot possibly express how much we were OBSESSED with our wedding cake from Bean Counter!!!!! Alice was not only an expert in delicious cake and design, but friendly, helpful, and communicative. We have many allergies in our family to gluten and tree nuts including myself and most of our wedding party. Alice made us feel so safe in having our completely gluten and tree nut free cake for our wedding, along with our incredible cannolis and eclairs. My old school Italian family was RAVING about how delicious it all was! I barely wanted a wedding cake before going to our original cake tasting because I was convinced that there was no way that a gluten free wedding cake would be good. I was SO wrong! After eating the first bite, I was literally more excited about our cake than I have ever been about any dessert in my entire life (which, believe me, says a lot). We fell in love with not only our cake flavors (one layer lemon/raspberry, one layer apple pie filling, and one layer chocolate chip cannoli), but Alice worked with us to get the perfect design that we wanted. Our cake was GORGEOUS and we can't wait to get photos back from our photographer so we can keep reminiscing about our beautiful AND delicious cake! We cannot say enough good things about Alice and her unbelievable talent. Hire this bakery!!!!!

One Taste and You'll be Hooked

We used The Bean Counter for our wedding cake and were so happy with how it turned out. There are beautiful wedding cakes, and there are delicious wedding cakes - and you don’t often get both … but you will with Alice. Her cakes taste incredible and our biggest problem was picking which flavor we wanted - try them all! They have many flavors, and they were all delicious and rich. They have many designs to choose from, and they made us a beautiful cake that included figurines of our three dogs. We had The Bean Counter on our radar based on an earlier tasting event we had attended, and then we found out they had made the cake for one of our friends years earlier which we specifically remembered loving, so it was a no-brainer that we'd use them for our wedding, and we were not disappointed. Great cake design, incredible flavor, and on-time delivery; we'd highly recommend them!

Best Wedding Cake I've Ever Had

Bean Counter Bakery gets a 5/5 rating for MANY reasons:
1 - the business owner, Alice, is very responsive and always returned my phone calls and emails right away. Many wedding vendors were hard to get ahold of, but that was not the case with Alice. I truly enjoyed working with her.
2 - I had numerous guests say our wedding cake was the best cake they'd ever had. We ended up having a chocolate cake inside (with chocolate frosting in the middle) and vanilla buttercream on the outside so it looked like a white cake. It was PHENOMENAL! The cake is so moist and truly will leave guests wanting an extra slice.

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.
