We hired them for our upcoming May wedding and just had our tasting/consultation last weekend. OMG were the cakes delicious. We were so impressed with the fact they took a picture of the design I wanted and were confident they could replicate it and still add the personal details I wanted, like matching the colors of the flowers exactly to the dresses we chose just by using swatches! We are very excited to see what they come up with and we are confident it will be nothing less than perfect!Sent on 10/03/2019

Our experience at Dessert Works was flawless! The tasting was beyond incredible, it was so hard to choose our favorite flavors! She was kind enough to even give us a second tasting when we came in and completely changed our cake design - which looked stunning as better than we even envisioned! Can’t recommend Dessert Works enough! Will definitely be back for future cakes.Sent on 11/25/2019

Beautiful and delicious!
Our cake from Dessert Works was incredible! Not only was our four layer cake absolutely delicious, Dessert Works offered us the most reasonable price of the five vendors we considered. The process was so streamlined from start to finish and the finished product was absolutely gorgeous. We highly recommend Dessert Works to anyone getting married in or around Boston!Sent on 10/08/2019
