We worked with Kelly from Scafuri Bakery for our wedding cake. Everything went great right from the beginning. We had a wonderful tasting where we tried out the different cake flavors and filling options. Kelly listened to our feedback and we developed a cake that had different combinations of flavors in the several layers of the cake. She also came up with a beautiful design for the cake that fit right in with the theme of our wedding. The gum paste flowers on the cake were a great touch! In addition to appearance the cake was delicious as well and we received tons of complements on it. Kelly was also very responsive throughout the process and was open to changes when we wanted to make them. We would definitely recommend working with Scafuri Bakery!

The cake and cookies that we ordered for our wedding from Scafuri Bakery were beautiful and absolutely delicious. We were able to use some very unique flavor pairings in our cake tiers, including balsamic caramel and salted caramel with fresh fruits. We also had bags filled with lemon knot, pignoli, and butter cookies sandwiched with chocolate. Yum, yum, yum. The Italian buttercream frosting is delicious as it is not sickeningly sweet. I usually hate buttercream frostings but was so happy when we fell in love with the work of this bakery. Long live Scafuri, a wonderful part of our neighborhood.

Kelly and staff at Scafuri Bakery really came through in making the wedding cake for our wedding. Not only were the flavors phenomenal - top layer of lemon cake with raspberry filling and bottom layer of lemon ricotta pound cake with cannoli filling - but the design was exactly what we had envisioned. The two squares offset with smooth frosting and a cascade of multi-sized silver, white and navy blue beads looked amazing. We should have ordered another bottom layer because all our guests wanted to take more than one piece home with them. I would recommend Scafuri Bakery for all your baked goods needs - cakes, cookies and donuts are all delicious! - CW and PMSG
