    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!!

    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 :)

    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!
