Autumn at its best

We had our fall wedding at the Essex Steam Train and our cake was from Creative Cakes by Donna. We had the apple spice cake with buttercream frosting and fall colored flowers. The cake was absolutely beautiful and tasted like heaven. All our guests loved the cake and we highly recommend Donna and especially the apple spice flavor if your having a fall wedding.

Funfetti wedding cake, what could be better!?

Creative Cakes by Donna was a hit at our wedding!! We loved the buttercream frosting, it was light and fluffy and not gritty like some can be! Lots of flavors / options to play around with but we ultimately went with funfetti with a French vanilla Bavarian cream filling and it was delicious!! Donna was super easy to work with and explained the process seamlessly. We couldn鈥檛 recommend her and her team enough!

Fabulous, beautiful and delicious cake!

We hired Donna for our wedding in July of 2023. She was one of the cake venders included with The Society Room wedding package. Donna was friendly to work with and quick to respond to all of our questions. She gave us a delicious sampling of cakes to take home. We decided on the strawberry shortcake with buttercream frosting. I had emailed her a picture of my vison for the cake and she nailed it! It was a tall beautiful and tasty work of art. My gests were very impressed by the display and flavor of the cake! I would recommend Donna for all of your wedding cake needs!
