    Wonderful Cake!

    My wife and I had our wedding at the end of May 2021 with McLain’s Bakery providing cupcakes and cake at the reception. We had a tall 6” passionfruit cake with buttercream frosting to cut and share with family while also providing three different mini-cupcake options for guests. We already loved McLain’s other bakery products, so it was no surprise that their cupcakes and cake were beautiful and delicious. We initially became intrerested during the early days of COVID, so we ended up doing a take-home tasting, but it was super fun. We went back for our in-person consultation later and felt so at-ease to have such a beloved local establishment handle one of the most iconic pieces of the wedding. The cakes were delivered in a timely manner and the quality was beyond reproach. Another perk is that you get a free anniversary cake after your first year; no more eating freezer-burned cake! I would highly recommend McLain’s for any occasion.

    Amazing baker to go with

    Their prices are stunningly low... which made me nervous about the quality. At the free tasting I tried the vanilla, almond, pumpkin, and red velvet. I loved them ALL. I ended up choosing the red velvet which I personally prefer with a cream cheese frosting (which I let the lady know) and they immediately offered me a sample of the cream cheese frosting (also delicious). They were extremely patient with me tasting and choosing and were flexible to ensure I got the exact cake I wanted. Couldn't be more pleased with this baker.
