I went through Baking Institute for my wedding because of the package I was given at my venue. However, Baking Institute was amazing! We had a tasting and everything we had was delicious. We ended up with the Red Velvet cake with cream cheese and it was AMAZINGGGGGG!!!! Our guests loved the flavor AND how it looked!! They did an amazing job on decorating my wedding and delivered it on time! Highly highly recommend them!Sent on 10/14/2019

Beautiful, tasteful, creative
Scheduling an appointment for tasting was easy! Things came up and we had to reschedule, doing so was smoother than buttercream. We liked the option of choosing our flavors ahead of time, it let us do it together in the comfort of our own home after a long day. The tasting was delicious 🤤 but we were still undecided on flavors so the bakery offered us samples in the other flavors we were considering, to be dropped off at our banquet hall within the coming week, considering the bakery is so far from us in comparison to the venue. Looking forward to tasting the cake in 10 months on our anniversary! This was an incredible, fun, and easy going experience!! I definitely recommend them!!Sent on 11/12/2019

Gorgeous and Tasty!
We were able to work with the Baking Institute through our venue. I was very pleased with the entire process. I was uncertain the about of decorating that we could do for the cake, however I thought we had a lot more options then I was expecting to make a beautiful centerpiece to the venue. Plus it was a delicious cake! I can’t wait for our 1st anniversary to get to eat it again :)Sent on 11/24/2019
These wedding cakes are true show stoppers! Each cake uniquely crafted to bring out the theme and personal elements of each wedding. During each consultation they walk you through your expectations, and you work together to make the design fit your needs. Not to mention you of course get to sample their amazing different cake options. What I love most is seeing the exact design and cake flavors all come together to form one show stopping piece for my clients big day!
We use the Baking Institute here at Klein Creek for all of our wedding cakes as well as our sweets tables. They always deliver the cakes on time and in beautiful shape! They are so easy to work with, I just send them over the final count a few days before the wedding and I know it will show up that morning without me having to call and make sure. Thanks Baking Institute!
I used Baking Institute for one of my budget conscious brides and they met us, driving farther, and the cake was absolutely beautiful! We look forward to working with this vendor more in the future! Prfect Day Wedding Panners http://www.perfectdayweddingplanners.com
