    The best cake I ever had!

    If you’re in the market for a cake that all your guests will love, give Creative Cakes by Donna a call! She worked with us to create the PERFECT flavor combination that we knew our friends and family couldn’t resist! Our 4-tier cake featured alternating layers of Chocolate Mousse and Cookie and Cream filling between Marble cake. It. Was. DELICIOUS! Not to mention, Donna and her team made the cake look absolutely amazing with perfectly executed scrollwork directly from my Pinterest board! A HUGE thank you to her for helping my cake vision come to life! When your mother-in-law asks for that same flavor cake for her birthday this year, you KNOW it was amazing. Just the perfect finishing touch to an overall incredible day!

    DELICIOUS!!! Everyone at the wedding went crazy for the cake. I chose chocolate with raspberry cream and fresh raspberries for 2 tiers and almond cake with coconut cream for the middle tier. I wish I had 2 tiers of both!!! I will buy for her cake for all special occasions going forward. LOVE!!!

The hardest part was deciding which flavor to go with because they were all amazing!!! Our guests all commented on how great the cake was!

    Donna is not just creative, she's a cake genius. We were so impressed with her, from our first meeting to when we saw the finished piece of art. The cake itself is also delicious. We showed her a photo of a cake and she exceeded our expectations. It was absolutely gorgeous. Tell all your friends who are planning a wedding to call Donna. Thank you Donna!

    Donna was fantastic to work with and our cake came out even better than I was picturing in my mind. I was so happy with how it came out and the flavor was delicious as well. Everyone kept taking pictures of the cake because it was so pretty! Donna was responsive and went above and beyond for us. I cant say enough good things about Donna and the delicious cakes that she creates.

    Donna did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding cake! Our cake was truly beautiful and matched our wedding vision perfectly, and it tasted like heaven. She was also such a pleasure to work with throughout the process, from the first tasting to the last-minute details. We couldn't have been happier.

    Donna was wonderful to work with and our wedding cake came out both beautiful and delicious! The cake tasting was a great opportunity to get to know Donna and try all the delicious flavor combinations. We were having trouble choosing just one so she even made a mini cake for my husband that he could enjoy as a little extra treat! She was kind and easy to work with throughout the whole process- even when I decided to add flowers to my cake at the last minute, she ordered them and made sure they matched the rest of my arrangements. Thank you Donna!

    Donna was wonderful during the planning of our wedding! From our first tasting, we knew that we wanted Donna to make our wedding cupcakes! She offered a choice of amazing flavors, which was so difficult to narrow down to just three! Donna also made my husband and I a small cake to cut on our wedding day and enjoy on our first anniversary...which is especially great, because we had no cupcakes left by the end of the reception! People loved them! Thank you Donna!

    Our wedding cake by Cakes By Donna was absolutely perfect ! She was the only tasting experience we had / needed and booked her the day of our tasting. We were blown away by how delicious multiple cake flavors /fillings of hers were.
    Prior to our tasting I had it in my head that chocolate cake wasn't a "wedding " cake but when we tried her signature chocolate raspberry cake that thought went right out the window. We picked that flavor as well as the strawberry shortcake.
    To top it off it tasted amazing and looked even better then I couldve imagined. It perfectly fit our waterfront venue.
    I froze our topper and am already dreaming of eating it again at our 1 year anniversary!
    Thank you for everything Donna we will definitely be getting cakes from you again in the future ! I can easily see this becoming an anniversary tradition :)

    Donna's cakes are so delicious and she lives up to her name. She is so creative! We had one meeting with her and talked about our personal style and the theme of our wedding. We had some crazy ideas and we weren't sure if our ideas were even possible. Donna assured us that they were and we were amazed with the incredible cake that she made us! She goes above and beyond to create your dream cake, even down to the smallest details. She is also very affordable and has lots of delicious flavors to choose from!

    Donna created a magnificent wedding cake for my daughter’s wedding on 6/30/18. The wedding took place on Folly Farm in Simsbury, and after the bride and groom conferred with Donna, she truly understood their vision. The wedding cake that Donna created blended in seamlessly with all of the other details. The cake was simply and beautifully adorned with fresh flowers, many of which came from Donna’s garden. The buttercream frosting was expertly applied and absolutely delicious, and the Tiramisu flavor of the frosting between the marble cake layers all came together to produce a gorgeous and delicious wedding cake! We highly recommend Creative Cakes by Donna!

    We absolutely loved our wedding cake and the favors were delish. We choose pistachio and coconut fillings as we wanted something different and all our guest couldn’t stop raving how good it was. Donna was great in the process giving us her ideas and taking what we liked. She even gave us a light green frosting instead of the traditional white. I wish I could eat my wedding cake every day! Thank you Donna for a great experience.

    We absolutely loved our cake ! It was beautiful and exactly what we envisioned! We got so many comments throughout the night and the next day about how delicious it was, a lot of guests said it was the best wedding cake they’ve ever had ! The process of cake tasting and designing it with Donna was so fun and easy. We can’t thank Donna enough, we’re so happy with our experience !

    Creative Cakes by Donna was one of the cake vendors included in our wedding reception package with the Pond House Café. We were able to come to the Pond House for a food tasting and sampled some of Donna’s cake flavorings, and decided to go with Creative Cakes by Donna as our cake vendor. I was really impressed that her cakes not only look spectacular, they taste great too! We met with Donna on site at her bakery and were treated to even more cake varieties, which made choosing a flavor difficult as they all taste so good. Cake sampling has never been so much fun with Donna and her assistant! We wanted a cake that was simple, with textured stucco buttercream frosting and a delicious filling, and Donna even threw in a hydrangea flower for me too. I think if you want to go more elaborate than the base package offering there is an additional cost, but for what we wanted the cake was perfect. I was even able to eat a slice on my wedding day, and it was moist and delicious! I can’t wait to cut in to the top tier on our one-year anniversary. Thanks again to Creative Cakes by Donna for providing us with a wonderful cake for our wedding day.

    We had such a great experience with Creative Cakes by Donna! At the tasting, all of the flavored cakes and frostings she had available for us to try were all so delicious. We ate everything! Ultimately we decided on chocolate cake with a chocolate mocha cappuccino mousse filling. I liked that Donna call me ahead of the wedding to make sure we were still happy with our flavor choices and to confirm delivery time to our venue. She was really on top of everything which was great! I had no worries about how the cake would turn out. When we walked into our venue we were blown away with how beautiful our cake was. She used fresh red roses that cascaded down the cake. At the end of our wedding day, our family fought over who would get to bring extra cake home! Donna really helped make our big day special. Thank you!

    Donna was excellent. The cake was something that kind of just fell off the list for us, and the last week as I was still working full time up until the day before was hectic. She was texting me assuring me that it would be great. The cake was beautiful and tasted fantastic
