My cake was BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!! The tasting went very well and I was very pleased with the taste of the diff. types of cakes. The final cake at my wedding reception was AMAZING!!!! It was so delicious and so perfect. They followed through on the look that I requested down to every last detail! The chef for this company really puts a lot into making this a very yummy cake unlike a lot of other wedding cakes that end up dry and bland. I recommend the Baking Institute if you want compliments on how good your cake was as well as a very clean, classy look!!!
I did not get to eat much because of how great of a time I was having but WOW I can not wait for our 1 year anniversary to eat the top layer and be reminded amazing the flavor of my wedding cake was, mmmmmmm!

Thank you very much for a wonderful cake for our 40th wedding anniversary. You did a great job and replicating a copy of our first cake. The cake tasted great everyone loved it. You also did a great job on my daughter's wedding cake 10 years ago.

Shout out to The Baking Institute for making our amazing wedding cake! It was beautifully done with gorgeous piping and decorating! To our designer Elizabeth who did an fantastic job! Took the time, went over options, suggested alternatives and help us pick the cake of our dreams. The flavor, holy hell, was it delicious. Ever since we had the tasting I literally dreamt and could not wait to eat that praline Bavarian cream again. I’m not a sweets person and literally craved this cake. We can not thank you and your staff enough for our perfect cake!
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
