    Cakes By Penny was fabulous. She was recommended by our friends who were married in July and we loved their cake and ours was absolutely wonderful. The cake itself was delicious we had lemon raspberry and pumpkin spice for our top and the decoration was perfect. She was very professional and we loved that we were able to try samples not just see the pictures. Would recommend her to anyone!

I loved the light up cake top you chose, it really went well with the flowers too. Thank you (and Red + Penny for passing my name on!) Happy New Year to you all! Best, Penny

    Penny does such amazing work! Everything we asked for and then some. The flavor of the cake is some of the best we've ever had, the presentation was on point, and the cake was at the venue and set up not just on time, but a touch early. We will definitely use her again for other cake needs!

    Penny was a joy to work with! We wanted a simple, elegant cake and it turned out beautifully. We had several guests who told us they wished they could have more and that it was so delicious. Penny was flexible throughout the whole process. Highly recommended!

    Penny is absolutely wonderful and her cakes are delicious! She is easy to work with. My cake is one thing I did not have to stress out about from the moment we met with her til the day she delivered it. Not only did we have her do our wedding cake but it was so good a month later we had her make my father in-laws birthday cake!! I highly recommend Penny!!!

    Penny made my daughter's quincenera cake. We gave her a picture of what we wanted. It came out beautiful, and it looked exactly the same as the photo. We were pleased to discover that it was also delicious. In all honesty, it was so beautiful, I figured we could take a hit on the flavor. I was surprised that it could be both beautiful and tasty. I also had some gluten free cupcakes made for my gluten-free guests, and those were awesome too. They were very moist and had great flavor.
    I have 2 other daughters, and will be using Penny again.

    I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Penny. When I met with her I had copies of designs I knew I wanted and when she showed me the many books of all the creations Penny has done over the years I was in awe. I ended up picking a custom design that was just beyond what I could dream up of on my own and if that wasn't enough to make me smile she asked what my wedding colors were to incorporate that into my cake, I didn't even know that was an option! After we decided on design we went to the best part, cake testing! I will just leave it as words cannot describe the amazing tastes and flavors that were offered, I was just so thrilled with everything from top to bottom. I spent so much time choosing the perfect dress and the perfect location and now months after when people talk about my wedding the only thing they mention is how great that cake was. Wedding planning is stressful enough and I can guarantee this is one vendor that will get the job done and leave you completely satisfied.

    Penny is the sweetest woman and makes THE MOST DELICIOUS CAKES! She was kind, personal and totally reasonable. She really seems to love her work. We got a BEAUTIFUL cake and she (unlike other vendors) doesn't charge for a beautiful cake stand! We met with another vendor whose cake was dry and personality didn't come close to Penny's- and yet, that vendor wanted to charge use nearly $100 more!

    Go with Penny- you won't regret it! With so many choices to make and vendors to juggle- this one is an easy YES!

    The cake was so good that we didn't even bother freezing the top- we ate it the night before we left for the honeymoon! Also, I saw a good friend after the wedding and she told me that when someone at her table had to leave suddenly- she and her guest grabbed the rest of their cake and ate it...it was that good...

    I first had one of Penny's cakes 25 years ago. Penny has built her reputation on the most amazing tasting cakes, now she has exquisite designs to go along with flavors. I could swear that her pricing has not changed either! I don't know how she does it, except that Penny has a passion for what she does. I was beyond thrilled that she wanted to do my small cake request with a rather short notice.
    I selected a flavor without tasting, because with Penny you know you are going to get AWESOME!
    Penny went above and beyond and gave me 2 samples of the Kaluha Cookie, making sure I had one to bring back to Mike. She also surprised me with making some extra accents to put on the cake!
    I am so thankful and appreciative of her artistry.

    Penny was wonderful! We have attended weddings that Penny provided the cake for in the past, so we knew of her work. She was very accomodating and prompt, and was flexible enough to work around our busy schedules to find a time to meet.
    When we met with Penny, we had an idea of what we wanted our cake to look like, but we weren't certain about all of the details. Penny was extremely helpful in taking our ideas and also providing us with the right advice to make our cake work.
    We were able to taste several cake flavors, and all of them were delicious! We decided on Penny's Kahlua cookie cake, which was amazing -- we highly recommend it if you are chocolate or coffee lovers!
    We cannot thank Penny enough for providing our beautiful wedding cake!

    My husband and I were so pleased with having Penny make our wedding cake. We ended up picking a pumpkin cake that had a butter cream frosting on the outside and then a cream cheese frosting inside. It was the perfect cake for our fall wedding. The wedding was a wonderful event and the delicious cake just helped to top off the evening. We actually had so many of our guests come up to us and say that the cake was the best wedding cake that they had ever tasted! I totally recommend Custom Wedding Cakes by Penny. She makes beautiful delicious cakes and her prices are also very good.

    A couple weeks prior to our wedding, our original baker had a family emergency and told us he could not make our wedding cake. He referred us to Penny. I called her and we discussed the cake over the phone and the urgency of our need to have a cake made for our wedding. Penny said she would make it for us on such a short notice. We provided her with a picture of the cake and she made it exactly as we asked. The cake was delicious and everyone enjoyed it. Thank you Penny for making us such a wonderful cake.

    She went above and beyond for my wedding cake. She is a true artist. I gave her a non traditional request on how we wanted our cake and she made it happen. She takes pride in her work and you can see that in the final product. My cake was the talk of my wedding. On top of the design being beautiful, it tasted great too. I could not be happier!

    Very attentive to detail, professional, and the wedding cake tasted as beautiful as it looked. I've been to many weddings where the cake only look pretty but was too dry or tasted awful. Penny has a wonderful gift of being able to create the perfect cake that tastes perfect too! I can't wait to eat me cake for our 1 year anniversary!

    Penny is the best!! She is so wonderful to work with. I was a very indecisive bride and she was so helpful with putting my ideas together to create the most beautiful wedding cake we could have asked for. It was absolutely perfect for the feel and style of our wedding and, of course, delicious! She is very professional and has a portfolio of beautiful cake designs to look at for inspiration. I highly recommend choosing Custom Cakes by Penny for your wedding cake. Her work is amazing and you will love what she creates for you!

    Penny Eagleton was extremely pleasant and easy to work with every at step of the process. She helped my husband and I come up with a design that really suited us by combining several ideas that we had. Beyond just looking at inspiration pictures, she really listened to us and took the time to understand the vibe of our wedding and matched it perfectly. And her cakes are delicious! There isn't a single flavor we tested that we did not like. You should definitely pick Custom Wedding Cakes if you are looking for a beautiful cake and a stress-free and fun experience.

    Penny was absolutely amazing. We strived to use only gay friendly vendors for our wedding, and she didn't hesitate at all when we said we were a same sex couple. She treated us with respect and sincere friendliness.

    She took our ideas - and they were different than most traditional/modern wedding cakes, and made them into a reality. We wanted a hexagon shaped cake and other bakers gave us grief over wanting such an unpopular shape, and Penny didn't even bat an eye and just said, "oh yes I can do that". She matched our wedding colors fabulously, put elements that we both really wanted with tiny hand-design work over the frosting, and it looked absolutely beautiful. Not only did it look pretty, but oh did it taste DIVINE! The cake layers were so moist and so fresh, and the frosting had just the right amount of sweetness, each bite left you wanting more!

    Couples would be lucky to have Penny make their wedding cake!
