    Wedding cake and dessert shooters

    The cake was amazing and presentation was beautiful. The shooters were a hit and the life of the party. They were cookies and cream and everyone loved them!

    Kim Is An Artist!

    Cakes by Kim creates the most beautiful cakes I’ve ever seen and they taste amazing too!! Working with Kim was a delight! She is extremely responsive and very easy to work with. She’s talented and her goal is to provide a cake you will instantly fall in love with. When I saw my cake for the first time, I was in awe! She went over and beyond mine and my husband’s expectations! She didn’t just create a cake, she created a beautiful scene with the cake as the center piece! My husband and I don’t really eat cake, but we’ll eat ALL the cake we can get from Cakes by Kim! My cake was perched atop a large ring of flowers surrounded by an array of candles. Kim designed this display to make it look as if my cake was floating! The colors, texture, and the intricate details were perfect for my modern Gatsby theme. I couldn’t have dreamed of a better cake or display if I tried! It’s clear that creating cakes is a labor of love for Kim. If you’re looking for a caker who will make a masterpiece of a cake that tastes just as wonderful as it looks, then Cakes by Kim is the one for you!

    Best cake ever!

    Cakes by Kim is absolutely amazing! The cake is delicious and she has the personality to match. She took our vision and brought it to life. She was professional and timely in all our dealings. I didn't know that the wedding cake process could be so intricate, but Kim made it a breeze. The hardest part is choosing what flavor(s) because everything is sooo good.

    We went with a three layer cake, mini cupcakes and apple pie shooters. We had so many compliments on the desert table!

    Cakes by Kim is the best choice hands down! You won't be disappointed!!

    You were fabulous to work with, Kim. Thank you for your flexibility with our unexpected time change and thank you for your patience and understanding with my post-wedding disorganization!

    Kim was one of my favorite vendors to work with! She is easy to work with, exceptionally talented and her cakes taste absolutely amazing! I still have guests asking for her information because they were blown away. Can’t wait for another excuse to work with Kim in the future! Such a pleasure. Book Kim and don’t hesitate. She is the best in Birmingham!

    Kim was one of the nicest vendors we hired for our wedding. The cake she made us was beautiful and it tasted so fresh and moist which is rare with most wedding cakes! She also made us banana pudding shooters which were a big hit! Thank you so much for everything!

    Kimberly Wiggins of Cakes by Kim provided a "tasteful" experience from the initial planning until the day of the wedding! The cake tasting appointment was very intimate and Kim exercised her patience as we made the best decision. Most of all, she provided her expertise when questioned about what would work best! On the day wedding, Kim was very punctual and utilized her talents to place our cake on display in such a way that has left an ever lasting impression upon US and our GUESTS! I highly recommend Cakes by Kim for one of the most important yet memorable days of your life!

    Kim did a phenomenal job with our cakes. They came out beautifully and tasted delicious! Throughout the process, Kim was professional and personable. I never had any questions because Kim's booking process was detailed and clear. When I needed to add a tablecloth rental, we were able to do so with no problem. I would definitely recommend Cakes by Kim.

    Kim makes AMAZING cakes! I'm not a fan of heavy icing so her white chocolate mousse icing was perfect! She was very helpful in deciding the size of the cakes and flexible about allowing me to add to the number of slices. She was also much better priced than any other place. Delivery was on time, it looked beautiful, and it tasted great. I plan on ordering a small one for my anniversary, because it was so popular that it was all gone by the time I could actually have a piece.

    My wedding cake from Cakes by Kim was absolutely gorgeous and SO delicious!!! Kim is so fun and easy to work with and she is awesome at what she does. I showed her a picture of the cake I wanted and she somehow made it was more gorgeous than the initial picture! Also, my husband isn't a huge fan of fondant and Kim worked with us and figured out a way to do the same detailing and designs without it. She is so awesome! Our wedding cake was so freaking good that I can't wait to eat the to tier on our first anniversary. Kim was so great to work with and I will definitely be ordering lots of cakes from her in the future.

    Kim's cakes are amazing. I order a four tier bridal cake and groom cupcakes from her. She was very attentive on what I wanted my cake to look like. She nailed my vision perfectly. We didn't have as many guests as originally planned for so we did have cake leftover which was a great midnight snack. My husband and I did take some by his work as we were leaving town for our honeymoon 2 days after the wedding and his co-workers raved about how yummy it still was. I may have to order another small cake just to eat for no specific occasion. Too yummy for words!!

    Kim was a pleasure to work with! The cake tasting was so much fun with her and she is very knowledgeable about the different types you can have. She was very helpful when we were trying to decide the size of mine and the grooms cake! She was so sweet and was always able to call her or email!

    "Best wedding cake ever!!" - quote from my wedding guests.

    First of all - Kim is amazing!! I feel very fortunate that she was part of my wedding. Kim was so pleasant to work with, she is beyond kind and thoughtful. Secondly, the cake she created for my wedding was phenomenal, culinary perfection! I wanted to do a naked cake for the reception and was a little worried that it might come out dry, rest assured, Kim did not let that happen! The cake was both beautifully made, but also DELICIOUS!! I wish I could have eaten more slices :)
