Donna was one of the cake vendors included with our Pond House wedding package. Once we tried the cakes at the open house we knew that’s who we wanted to go with. Donna made our cake perfectly and it was delicious! We got so many compliments and we accidentally ate the cake topper within a week after the honeymoon because it was sooo good. Would 100% reccomend Creative Cakes by Donna.
Our wedding cake was beautiful and tasted delicious! We received many compliments about the taste of the cake. I had a specific color in mind and Donna initially didn't have it but made sure to find it for us to make our cake perfect! Thank you Donna!
Thank you for the compliments Natalie. I'm so glad you loved it. Congratulations to you both!
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.
Congratulations Elizabeth and thank you for the kind words. Best of luck to you both!
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
We absolutely loved our wedding cake. It was beautiful (exactly what we wanted!) as well as delicious. Donna was a pleasure to work with and made the process quite easy (and delicious!). I would definitely recommend her!
Thank you for the review Katie. Congratulations to you both and much happiness in your life.
Our cake was delicious. We got so many compliments on it! Everyone loved it. And she made gluten free cupcakes for my in laws that have a gluten free allergy
Donna was so sweet and so very helpful creating our perfect wedding cake that truly reflected both our tastes. Our cake was beautiful and so delicious! I will be dreaming of anniversary tier for the whole year!
Thank you Lauren. And congratulations to you both.
Cake was delicious- best wedding cake I have ever had. Also, it was absolutely beautiful! So many compliments on it.
Congratulations to you both! Thank you for the praises. We enjoyed being a part of your wedding.
My wedding was 07/29/2016. Donna was extemly professional paying close attention to my ideas and decor for my event. Her decadent cake and stunning presentation left my guest in aww. Creative cakes comes highly recommend in my opinion as her cakes have no preservatives just be sure to have enough space to refrigerate left overs immediately. Her cakes are the best around. Also she arrived and set up the cake on time with no issues. Very professional as she has many years of experience and even has heads of state as part of her clientele.
I had a wonderful experience working with Creative Cakes by Donna. She spent the time to go over every detail that I wished to include for my wedding cake. Donna helped to specifically design my cake to fit what I wanted. I was truly amazed when I saw my wedding cake for the first time; it was more beautiful than I imagined it would be! The flowers and rhinestones were a perfect touch. I highly recommend this wedding venue! Meghan and Cody Gill
Thank you for the kind words Meghan. Congratulations to you both!
We recently worked with Donna at Creative Cakes for our wedding. I called Donna a few months before our wedding to schedule a tasting and she scheduled us to come in that week. The tasting was so much fun! Donna is so easy to talk to and she let us try a variety of her (delicious) cakes! They were so good, it was hard to choose which one we wanted. We ended up going with strawberry shortcake and it was truly delicious. When visiting Donna's bakery during our tasting, it was evident that she is a true professional and has many years of experience and expertise, not to mention that her designs are amazing. Our wedding cake came out absolutely beautiful and our guests were raving about how it tasted. Thank you Donna for creating our perfect wedding cake!
Donna's chocolate raspberry cake with buttercream frosting for our wedding was so, so good. The cake itself was also beautiful before we bit into it, but if you love cake - the best part is obviously eating it. Donna was super easy to work with. Whether it was scheduling our tasting (I wish I could do cake tastings all the time), providing advice during the tasting or even figuring out what flowers to put on the cake, the whole cake designing process was a breeze. I got my perfect cake and ate it too :-)
We came across Cakes by Donna because it was one of the options for cake provided in our wedding package from our venue. After reading some reviews, we just had to find out for ourselves what made these cakes so special. When we met with Donna, we got to try a wide variety of different cakes and flavors. There were so many great options it was a bit difficult to finalize our choice (ultimately we chose the strawberry shortcake..highly recommend it!). During the appointment, we got to know Donna better and felt like she really took an interest in getting to know us. It was definitely a very personalized experience, one that you won't get everywhere you go. After tasting the cakes, there was no question in our minds that we had to have Donna make our wedding cake. I loved the sample so much I couldn't wait for the real cake! When I saw the cake on our wedding day, I was absolutely blown away. It was BEAUTIFUL!!! It looked even better than I could have ever imagined and hoped for. Not only was it the best looking cake I had ever seen, but the taste was just perfect! Our only regret was that we were so consumed with everything going on throughout the night that we barely had an opportunity to eat more than a couple bites of the cake. There is no doubt in my mind that we will be contacting Donna for all future cake orders and will recommend her to all of our friends when they are planning their weddings!
Donna did such a wonderful job with our wedding cake! It looked beautiful and was delicious. Even my super picky in-laws loved it! Donna was helpful in answering all my questions along the way and always got back to me very quickly. She is definitely the best!
Thank you for the review and photos! The photographers get ,of course, nicer ones than mine! Congratulations to you both and hope to hear from you in the future.
Donna was extremely accommodating, and the cake turned out AMAZING! The cake was delicious, and it was decorated exactly to my liking. There was a huge snowstorm the day of our cake tasting, and Donna let us come anyways and she squeezed us in (even though we were an hour late). All the guests loved the cake, it was beautiful and delicious! I'm not sure what her pricing was, as it was included in the cost of our venue, but I'm sure she's worth whatever she charges!
We booked Creative Cakes by Donna through the Society Room. Donna did a great job with our cake, it was beautiful and we received so many compliments on how delicious it was.
Amazing! Our wedding cake was delicious! We went with an orange creamsicle cake with fresh strawberries on the inside. It was out of this world. Donna is so amazing to work with too! Our cake looked so beautiful and there were so many wonderful details on the cake that I didn't want to cut into it! Definitely go with her if you are thinking about a cake! Thank you so much!
Donna is AMAZING!!!! I am still dreaming of our cake and how beautiful it came out. And our guests are still talking about how amazing the cake was. I couldn't have asked for anything more stunning and breathtaking... it was truly a piece of art.
Donna and her staff did an amazing job! We met her to discuss our vision and taste many yummy cakes. We were so very pleased with the seasonal option she presented us with (pumpkin spice cake!). The cake looked great the day of, but it tasted even better! Couldn't have asked for more!
Donna is amazing. We had our tasting with her and it was like hanging with family. I can not say enough about this place. From the taste of everything too the design. You show and tell her your vision and she just takes it to another level. I can not wait to see it finalized and eat it on friday. I dont think I will go anywhere else. Its a ride but so worth it her attention to details ect
She calls with questions and concerns. If your design isnt what she thought she lets you know in my case it was a little redundent. She told me and fixed it. Just amazing
My wedding cake was everything I had hoped for and more. She took everything I said I wanted and brought it into reality. Not only was the cake beautiful, but it was delicious. I had at least 5 pieces on my wedding day, and all the guests raved about how delicious it was. Donna is the best!
Our cake was absolutely beautiful! It was as delicious as was breathtaking! I couldn't have asked for anything more!! Donna was a doll and made everything so easy! Because we lived quite a distance from her she dropped off samples to our venue (time conflicts we couldn't make it to her) and we did all the planning over the phone. I explained exactly what I was looking for and she nailed it!! You will not find anyone better!!
Donna was AMAZING. When we came in to meet with her, not only was the cake tasting the most fun, but she was completely flexible through everything we asked for. She also turned our dream into reality. I brought in pictures and mood boards for the cake, and she helped to create exactly what we were looking for (a naked cake with buttercream frosting, but with added fruit and powdered sugar to give it a more natural french feel). She went above and beyond, even adding a 4th tier to the cake to give it exactly the aesthetic we wanted. And to top it all off, the cake was DELICIOUS. She uses the best raw ingredients, and her presentation is artful and not overdone. We wanted the cake to be a main focal point of the wedding, not just hide in the corner. We put the cake under our ceremony arch after the ceremony itself so everyone could see it before being cut. People are still raving about how delightful the cake tasted and looked.
Thank you Donna for giving us the cake of our dreams!

Wow Emily! Thank you for the compliment! It was a nice message to wake up to on a Sunday morning after working all week. Congratulations to you both and thank you for choosing us
Donna is a wonder. I used her on compliment with the vendor we had for our wedding- The Society Room of Hartford. The Society Room gives you two options for cake vendors with whom they work, and at some point, you will taste cake from both before you select one. I chose Donna immediately- her cake was damn good! From there, you get a basic cake with soft frosting and two flavors of your choice. You can also choose a decoration like ribbon, included in the price you pay the venue. I didn't add any upgrades to my cake, but get this: DONNA OUTDID HERSELF AND ADDED FONDANT FLOWERS!!! I have to tell you that with all the money we spent on the wedding, we didn't care to upgrade the cake. We got some simple ribbon from Joans and sent that and the cake topper to Donna before hand. When I saw the cake the day of our wedding, I was blown away. I am still blown by the detail and the fact that she added so much to it. She is a true sweetheart and I hope she sees this review to know how grateful I am. We had the lemon cake with raspberry filling and plain frosting, and everyone raved about how delicate, moist, and light the cake was! Yum! Donna, you rock!
