Most beautiful cake I’ve ever seen!!!

Guys, when I tell you that this cake blew us away.... it’s an under statement! This cake exceeded every expectation we had! Not only was it everything we asked for - but it was even BETTER! It tasted incredible, perfect in every way - inside and out! We couldn’t be happier! It was an absolute show stopper!
Also, I want to add how incredible they were to work with! We changed our venue 3 times AND our date AND even our color scheme 30 days before they wedding and needed to change the cake from silver to gold and they rolled with every change professionally, gracefully, and happily! They never seemed frustrated or anything but happy to help! Please do yourself a favor & Hire them!!! You won’t be disappointed!

Delicious Cakes!

This was probably our favorite appointment we had while preparing for our wedding! The cake tasting was so much fun and we really enjoyed putting together some different flavor combinations while designing our cake. We came in with a few inspiration pictures and walked out with a drawing of our perfect cake—complete with a space for a tiny figurine of our dog. All flavors that we chose for our cake were a hit and we are beyond excited to open our anniversary layer to dig in to that lemon and raspberry! We look forward to eating many more cakes from WOW Factor in the future.

Best Bakery in Charlotte

Do not look any further if you are in need for a wedding cake in the Charlotte area. We feel so privileged to have gotten to use Wow Factor Cakes at our December wedding. The cake tasted amazing, was set-up on time, and was absolutely stunning. We love the time that we got to spend planning the flavor and design ahead of contract and have not looked back since. The cake was the center piece to our wedding and it could not have turned out better. 10/10.
