    Great quality and selection!

    We loved our cake and dessert table from Freedom Bakery. They worked with us to customize the look of our cake and select the right assortment for our dessert table. The cake was gorgeous and delicious, and I think it was a great value too. We were thrilled!

    Best Cakes!

    First off, my family has been using Freedom Bakery for over 30 years. This is our go to place for any special occasion, thus of course they had to be a part of our wedding.

    We did a take home cake tasking plate and all the flavors were delicious. My husband had his favorites (raspberry) and I can mine (caramel), but we both decided on the oreo filling which surprised both of us.

    Once we found a photo of a cake design that we wanted, it was very easy to send them that photo and change the colors of it to out wedding colors. We got a discount on the cake for having a family member pick it up ourselves. The process was really easy and as far as wedding planning goes, it may have been the easiest part of the entire wedding planning process.

    We also were able to order the same cake for our 2 month anniversary (as there were no left overs) and it was just as special and delicious. Planning to order again for our 1 year anniversary.

    Wonderful Wedding Cake!

    We purchased an all-inclusive wedding package through our venue, and Freedom Bakery was our wedding cake vendor that was included! We were blown away by the number of flavor options, and how excellent they tasted! We went with half lemon raspberry and half boston cream pie. Both flavors were a huge hit and the cake looked and tasted just as great as it did during our tasting. We would not recommend anyone else for a wedding cake!
