    Professional and knowledgeable

    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.

    Delicious !

    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!

    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!
