The Best Cake

One of the best cakes we have ever eaten. (Strawberry layers and vanilla almond layers) So moist and flavorful! Enjoyed our cake tasting day, but it was even better for the actual wedding! Everyone loved it!

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

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!
