    Beautiful Cake!!

    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!

    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.

  • Klein Creek Golf Club Country Club Weddings

    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!
