    Highly recommend!

    I had a great experience with Pennington! My guests raved about how tasty it was, and we overheard lots of Mmmms!

    We ordered chocolate with raspberry filling. Sometimes there’s not enough filling, but this was the Perfect filling to cake ratio! So moist - and the presentation was exactly what I’d asked for! So happy with it

    Pennington's Cakes's reply:

    Thank you, Rachel and congrats again! We are thrilled to hear your cake was a hit! Many blessings to you!

    Highly recommend Pennington's Cakes

    Pennington's Cakes baked two fabulous cakes for our daughter's wedding. Pennington's made the cakes perfectly to our specifications and both cakes were beautiful, moist, and delicious! The cakes were delivered and set up just like we wanted! We highly recommend using them for your wedding!
