We ordered a beautiful three tier cake from Appletree, and it was fantastic. It was beautifully designed, and we were told by several people at the wedding it was the best wedding cake they'd ever tasted.Sent on 08/02/2017
Jan was easy to work with, and the cake tasting was very fun! An overall great experience!

We tried many cakes and Jan's was by far the BEST wedding cake we tried! She had so many interesting flavors, it made it hard to choose. So we chose three, one for each tier of our wedding cake! We really wish we had more leftover cake.Sent on 06/27/2017
Appletree Cake Co. LLC's reply:Hi Lauren & Oscar. Thanks for your great review. It was especially fun surprising Oscar with the fun groom's cake! Best wishes to you both for a long and happy marriage.

I came across AppleTree Cake Co on weddingwire.com 2 weeks before my wedding when my previous baker informed me that she would no longer be able to provide our wedding cake. While I was reluctant to consider another baker who works from home, I could not have made a better selection than Jan of AppleTree Cake Co! Jan exuded professionalism She responded to my email inquiry immediately and scheduled a time to chat about my cake design and event details the next day. During our phone consultation she gave me a quote and explained her pricing to help clarify where I could cut costs if need be. Despite my shortened timeframe Jan did not pressure me to make a decision right away; I considered her proposal over the weekend checked out other bakers over the weekend. When I reached out to her on Monday morning to set up a tasting Jan was able to meet me that same evening with a sample cake for my fiancé and I to taste at home. Talk about promt and professional! Needless to say the sample cake was delicious and we decided to hire Jan. Her online contract and electronic payment system was easy to use and hassle free. Jan was already familiar with our venue and coordinated a timely and smooth cake delivery. Our wedding cake was beautiful and delicious and I couldn't have made a better choice. If you want a professional, talented, fairly-priced baker look no further! Save yourself any additional trouble and book AppleTree, you will not regret it!Sent on 06/07/2017

Lauren · Married on 10/31/2016
Jan was incredibly accommodating, helpful, and the overall product was delicious and looked beautiful. From the start Jan was flexible in scheduling a tasting, and provided far more tasting options than other vendors in the Richmond area. Also, Jan went above and beyond to contact our venue and florist concerning cake stands, type of table the cake would be on, and how the flowers would be placed. Additionally, when I asked Jan her opinion on options, she was very honest in her response, and twice her honesty meant less money for her. So without a doubt...she is truly there to accommodate the couple not her pocket. Finally, and most importantly, Appletree is the BEST price in the Richmond area and by far the BEST tasting. Some of the other places we tried were pricier but the taste / quality did not match the price. Wedding planning can be so stressful, but Jan was one vendor that we truly enjoyed working with and would recommend her every time! Thanks so much AppleTree Cake Co!!Sent on 11/06/2016
Appletree Cake Co. LLC's reply:Hi Lauren. That feeling is mutual - you were so kind and easy to work with. It was my pleasure working to make your wedding a beautiful day!

I could not be happier with Appletree, who provided cupcakes and a small wedding cake for our big day. We knew after the initial tasting that we scored a superb vendor. The cake and frosting options are plentiful, though not overwhelming, and it was great that we could mix-and-match options. Think pumpkin spice cupcakes with cinnamon frosting for a late October wedding. Our guests were also blown away by the chai tea cupcakes, among the four or five other options we had. Also, the prices are not over-the-top. We seriously have zero regrets choosing Appletree, and anyone getting married in the Richmond/Powhatan area should seriously consider this vendor!Sent on 10/26/2016
Appletree Cake Co. LLC's reply:Thank you, Victoria. Your kind words mean a lot. It was fun working with you and Joey. Loved the fall tree cake with the "twisty" branches. You two are very creative and I'm glad I was able to bring your vision to the cake!

Jan was fantastic to work with. Me had a simple wedding cake design with three tiers in different flavors. She knocked it out of the park and many guests wanted cake to bring home from the reception. Thank you, Jan! We loved supporting your local business and the cake was delicious!Sent on 11/02/2016
Appletree Cake Co. LLC's reply:Hi Caitlin! Thanks for this fantastic review. I loved working with you as well, and I'm so happy your guests enjoyed the cake!

My husband and I were lucky enough to win a vow renewal at Fairview Farm in Powhatan, VA. Part of the winning package was a cake by Appletree Cake Co. When we went to our tasting, it was so hard to narrow down our selection. Everything was delicious!! We ended up choosing a pumpkin flavored cake with buttercream frosting, which we felt was perfect for our Oct. ceremony. I wanted the look of a "naked" cake and boy did Jan deliver! We got so many compliments on not just the taste but also the look. My vision was fully met and we couldn't be happier with how the cake turned out! Jan was extremely professional and nice and never once treated us any different than she would a paying customer. The fact that she donated her services for our vow renewal ceremony says a lot about her and her company. We highly recommend her and we for sure will be returning customers!Sent on 10/28/2016

Jan was amazing and my wedding cake was delicious and beautiful. Since the beginning she was professional, warm, inviting and funny! I enjoyed every part of the experience she made the process painless. She was clear, her contracts are fair and clear and her presentations lefts me smiling from the cake tasting to when I first walked in with my husband and saw it sparkling with my "M" cake topper. Thank you Jan for being one of the best choices of my wedding day. I shall return! For another occasion of course. lolSent on 03/08/2017

I could not be happier with the beautiful and delicious cake the Appletree Cake Co LLC made for my daughter's wedding last weekend! Jan Butterfield was wonderful to work with. She was so kind and accommodating while working with me through the entire selection process. Because my daughter was attending college out of state, I had the deliciously daunting task of selecting the cake without her assistance. I knew her vision was for a semi-naked cake with lots of flavor, but I was nervous about making a choice she and her groom would both like. Jan provided a wide variety of flavors and fillings to mix and match during the initial tasting. (She was also kind enough to provide me with a second box of samples, when I started to doubt my choice just weeks before the wedding!) Another area she proved knowledgeable in, was helping me select the correct number of tiers to give the cake the proper height to make sure it was aesthetically pleasing to the eye. My daughter and I both couldn't have been more pleased the end results! Jan delivered a beautiful semi-naked cake with salted caramel cream cheese filling! It was the perfect color, and looked beautiful in the rustic venue setting with fresh flowers on all the tiers. I had so many guests comment on how moist and delicious it was! Appletree Cake Co really "takes the cake" in delivering excellent customer service, along with a beautiful and delicious quality product! I highly recommend their services!Sent on 06/05/2016

My wedding cake was beautiful and DELICIOUS!!!! I approached Jan with a photo of a cake that I liked and she worked with me to tweak it and figure out a design that would work including adding fresh flowers and accommodating my cake topper. She worked with my budget and truly created the cake of my dreams! The cake tasting was yummy of course and Jan was a dream to work with - so nice and reassuring. No complaints whatsoever!! I already can't wait to order my anniversary cake because I have to admit I didn't get my share on my wedding night!!! Thanks again Jan!!!!!!Sent on 05/30/2016

Apple tree was very professional. We enjoyed the cake, very tasty and delicious. Loved all three layers being different flavored. Bottom was vanilla, middle strawberry and our favorite was the top which was a spiced cake with cinnamon cream cheese filling. Absolutely satisfied with everything and will definitely recommend her to friends!Sent on 05/17/2016
