    Excellent experience start to finish!

    Can I give EK Cakery more stars than 5? From the very beginning with our initial meeting and tasting with Erica - we knew she was the person we wanted to work with! Our cake decoration needs weren't extreme - our wedding theme was simple and elegant - but the flavors! OMG! It was so hard to choose so we chose four! Top knotch in everything! So easy to work with and definitely the best cake I've ever had. Everyone at the wedding (including the woman who crashed the wedding) raved about it. Thank you for making our day just "that much better!"

    EK Cakery's reply:

    Thank you for the review and for sending me these pictures!
    I am so happy that we were able to make all of your sheet cakes and cake and that you were happy with everything.
    Thank you SO much!

    Highly recommend!

    Honest to goodness, cannot recommend EK Cakery enough. We booked our wedding with Erica in early 2020. She was incredibly understanding when we had to move our wedding date due to COVID.

    This worked out great because it allowed us two additional years to try a wide variety of the cakerie's offerings, as we would stop by on their Saturday hours to try purchase some treats. Our favorites are by far the macaroons and cupcakes.

    The day of the wedding Erica and her team were fantastic! They were super timely, rocked out set-up, and the decor options selected were perfect. We also ended up ordering a tres leche for a non-wedding event which also tasted AMAZING!!!

    Also, their s'mores-flavored marshmallows? I could go on and on.

    Wonderful Small Town Business

    After completing the contract everything was so easy. They literally take care of everything. I was still in the bridal suite when they set up and they just jumped right in and took care of it. Super refreshing to have people come in and do their best work! BROWNIES WERE AMAAAAZING

    EK Cakery's reply:

    Thank you SO much Alexa for your review! It was such a pleasure to work with you and I am thrilled that you enjoyed our brownies! Thank you so much for the opportunity to be a part of your wedding day! Congrats!!!
