Delicious & beautiful!
Alissa is an OUTSTANDING baker! I and my whole family are self-professed "foodies," so finding a cake that actually tasted good for our wedding day was going to be - I thought - quite a task. I spoke to some very well-known places in the area known for wedding cakes, and they either were inconsistent with their communication or their prices were INSANE. We were looking for some kind of gluten free option, and after speaking with Alissa on the phone, and navigating her website, we found we had so many options it was unbelievable. We met her at a local coffee shop to do our cake-tasting (with cupcakes!), and couldn't believe what we were eating... I'm one to do lots of research, and I don't like to "pull the trigger" so to speak on something before I've done adequate "vetting" LOL, but after that taste, there was no way we could go with anyone else. We had 30 people, three layers: bottom chocolate, middle yellow, top GF chocolate, with two layers of filling: cannoli and mocha, with buttercream frosting. I'm salivating just remembering how delicious, how moist and chocolatey it was... And she gave us a completely separate layer to freeze for our one-year anniversary. $200. Can't beat it. I'll say it again - OUTSTANDING! Highly recommended!!Sent on 07/22/2020

Such a good pick!
Due to COVID we had to down size the original cake. This was not an issue at all. They made it so easy to substitute other dessert options in addition to my cake! Cake truffles and chocolate covered strawberries were a great addition!Sent on 09/21/2020

Support Local / Support Cake by Alissa
It was important to us to have a sustainable wedding that supported small and local businesses. If you are having a wedding at or around the Lake George / Saratoga area - we highly recommend Cake by Alissa. She gave us an amazing cake tasting experience - willing to give us every combination of cake to filling we desired. Don't waste this opportunity on traditional cakes to please your guests. Go big or go home - go for taste over design. Ours was a 3 tier cake - chocolate cake / raspberry cream / chocolate mousse (bottom cake); white cake / pastry cream / strawberry mousse (middle cake); chocolate cake / chocolate almond butter cream / cannoli cream (top cake) - all covered in a simple vanilla butter cream frosting. A month after our wedding, people were still raving about how delectable the cake was.
Alissa is thoughtful and considerate - will create a separate top cake to freeze for your one year anniversary. She was friendly and fun to work with.
Support local. Support Cake by Alissa. She has a forever customer in us for birthdays and holidays and just because we want some cake. Thank you, Alissa for participating in our special day.Sent on 10/09/2020
