One word: DELICIOUS! Our cake was absolutely fabulous! We wanted simple and elegant, but above all tasty! We had two tiers of spice cake and one of red velvet all with buttercream frosting and it fit our winter wedding perfectly! We're so happy they're close to where we live so we can go back for other cakes (p.s. their Saturday German BBQ cart is also amazing).

Attentive. Courteous. Amazing Cake!
Heidelberg Pastry Shoppe is THE PLACE to get your wedding cake, groom’s cake, and any other treats you may consider having for your wedding! My husband and I went to Heidelberg Pastry Shoppe for a tasting after it had been recommended by several friends and colleagues, and we were treated with such respect and kindness! We called ahead to pick out the flavors that most interested us. They set up our own table (complete with a “wedding tasting” sign), a massive binder of almost all their cake designs they have done in the past, and three huge multi-layer slices of cake of our choices. The woman taking care of us was attentive but allowed us to take our time and discuss our opinions; she answered all our questions and was extremely patient! A few weeks leading up to the wedding, the bakery was flexible in changing the sizes and décor of the cake. The day of, the cake was delivered with no issue and everyone RAVED about it! We decided on almond cake with raspberry jam with spice cake with apricot jam; both of those layers were a hit, and even months after the wedding, people still talk about how great that cake was! My husband and I now get all special event cakes there! An amazing bakery that was highly recommended by several people that makes fantastic cakes with exceptional service and great pricing….this is a must for a great wedding!

My husband and I went to a lot of cake tasting and couldn't really find the best cake for our wedding. Heidelberg Pastry Shoppe was recommended to us by one of our other vendors. The cake was delicious and flavorful. We couldn't ask for more. The cake picture I sent them look exactly what i expected. They communicate well and worked with us.Sent on 06/12/2018
