    I am a baker so very picky with my cake. I loved Decadent Designs. They are so easy to work with and their cakes are moist and delicious. The tasting fee was low and they allow you to do it at the privacy of your own home. We got lemon with butter cream and carrot with cream cheese. Absolutely delicious and reasonably priced!

    I cannot recommend Decadent Designs Bakery enough to anyone looking for a delicious yet affordable wedding cake. My groom and I considered several bakeries but none compared to the quality, creativity and professionalism that Decadent Designs offered. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Jan and she knocked our socks off with the cake tasting provided. We visited the bakery and Jan provided us with a box that included labeled samples of each cake, filling and icing that they offer. In the comfort of home, we included two family members and enjoyed sampling and "voting" on our favorites. Everyone loved the almond pound with vanilla filling so that's what we went with! Jan made the process a breeze and the cake was amazing. My groom and I loved our cake so much that we broke tradition and ate the top tier the week after our honeymoon! Thanks to Decadent Designs and Jan, our wedding cake was not only beautiful but delicious, too!

    Decadent Designs made a custom groomsman cake for my rehearsal dinner in October and it was absolutely perfect! A groomsman cake is mostly a southern tradition where the bride orders a cake that somehow represents the groom to bring to the rehearsal dinner. My fiancé had never heard of this tradition so he was totally surprised when he saw his cake! Decadent designs created a one of a kind "Spartan Race" (mud run) themed cake. My husband runs these races regularly and I thought he would get a kick out of seeing all of the edible obstacles on top of his favorite kind of sheet cake! The design was so creative and the added plus was that the cake was delicious! I got more comments on how good this rehearsal dinner cake tasted than I did on my wedding cake (which I had already ordered elsewhere before learning of Decadent Designs). I would recommend their services to anyone!!

    I picked up a cake box from the bakery which had a multitude of icings, fillings, and cake to choose from. My fiance and I were initially overwhelmed with the sheer number of options we had to choose from. We were able to narrow our choices down to a select few, and have a design appointment scheduled for early January 2015. Jan was very sweet, polite, and professional during the times we spoke on the phone. She was flexible about penciling us in her diary (very cute!). We will be making our decision fairly soon regarding choosing our baker, and she is a top contender!

    Decadent Designs was absolutely awesome to work with! From the initial meeting to the wedding day, they make you feel important and like a valued customer. After meeting with other cake designers, it was so refreshing to find a place that seemed to really care about what my vision for the cake was and listen to what I wanted…all for a reasonable price! I love the way they do their cake tasting. You pay for a take home box of all the cake, filling, and icing flavors. You can then take your time tasting the different combinations and allow your friends and family to try them too, if you have a hard time choosing between all the delicious options! And if you choose to go with them, they give you credit for the price of the box to put towards the cake. When we met to go over what we wanted for the cake, they were super friendly and thanked us for choosing them. They looked at the pictures of the cakes we brought in and showed us the book of wedding cake they had done preciously to help with the designing of our cake. The cake turned out perfect and just as I had envisioned it. They worked with the florist to decorate it perfectly too. They delivered the cake and set it up too. They were a joy to work with and I would highly recommend them!

    The cake for my daughter's wedding was exquisite!!! Not only was it beautiful to look at, but it was delicious and FRESH! The flavor combinations were wonderful. Our favorite part of choosing the cake was the cake tasting process. Bringing home the box with all of the flavors, fillings, and frostings was fun for everyone and made this a super easy experience! I would highly recommend this bakery to any bride.

    I cannot say enough good things about Jan and Decadent Designs! Our cake was not only delicious, but it was absolutely beautiful and the price was lower and the cake yummier than other area bakers we tried!

    Decadent Designs also has the most fun tasting process! You get to take home a box with ALL the cake flavors, fillings and icings to taste in the comfort of your own home! No picking ahead of time!

    This bakery will be our go-to for cakes for as long as we live in Charlotte, and I would hire them again for a wedding in a heartbeat.

    The owner is the cutest woman ever! She helped us from cake testing to wedding day. Our wedding cake was everything that I had imagine and tasted like heaven!

    They have many options for cake flavors and ALL of their cakes are amazing.

    One thing that stood out for me was the cake testing process. I did not feel hassled or pressured or afraid to say I didn't like a cake. The reason for this feeling was the fact that they offer a box testing. They make a bunch of samples of cakes and let you take them home to try them. That way people who cannot come cake test with you can enjoy it at home. It was PERFECT! You could enjoy and take as much time as you wanted.

    I would recommend this venue to ANYONE who needs a wedding cake!

    Decadent Designs made the cake for our wedding and let me tell you, it was AMAZING! The quality of work, the taste, everything was perfect!

    Jan is one of the sweetest person I have ever met. She truly cares about what you are looking for and she doesn't push for the 'more expensive' stuff like some other vendors do.
    We didn't even tell her our budget and she was already giving us different options to see what would fit the look we were going for and budget both.

    We booked her almost a year in advance but she kept in touch with us through out the year and it was so sweet. She called us about 5 months before our wedding just to ask " if she can help with anything".

    We are so happy we went with Jan and decadent designs. Our wedding cake was everything we were looking for and Jan was a true pleasure to work with!

    Our wedding cake was not only beautiful but it was delicious. It was just what we wanted and tasted great. Everyone commented on how good it was and several went back for more than one piece. They were a pleasure to work with and everything was perfect. Thank you for making our special day so great.

    "AMAZING cake!!" That is all I heard from my guests about our Decadent Designs Bakery Cake.

    We had a four tier cake with red velvet, carrot and almond cake. Unfortunately I wasn't able to taste the carrot cake (my favorite) because it was all gone. I did taste the red velvet and it was AMAZING!

    Our tasting appointment was fun, informative and we were able to design our cake completely to our liking. It was perfect!

    I LOVED the cake. This place has most moist cake and some amazing flavor fillings. They were so professional and met with me several times to make sure they got the style of the cake correct. I still drop by this place for their amazing bakery stuff. Try it out!

    The most important aspect of a cake is its look and taste. Our cake from Decadent Designs had both. We had so many compliments on the taste and moistness of our cake. We were more than pleased!

    Very professional & competitive pricing. Came in for the tasting allowing me to bring my Mom, the brides sister and her two children since the bride lived out of town. Very thorough tasting and even provided me with a take home tasting for my bride to be when she arrived that weekend. The cake was beautiful and designed to match the bridal dress. Great tasting cake and great looking. Lots of comliments from the guests. Thank you very much.

    Delicious and beautiful! The cake turned out even better than I had imagined. It was so moist and tasty, I'm glad we have the top layer to eat next year. We brought them a picture of what we wanted and they pulled it off, and it even looked better than the one in the picture. We highly recommend this bakery!!

    Decadent Designs did an outstanding job with our cake! The cake tasted amazing- we went with almond pound cake, and decided on chocolate ganache with vanilla mousse in between one layer, and chocolate mousse in between the other layer. I think I ate two pieces at the reception. My fiance lived out of town, so my mom and I went to decide on the cake and the design. Diane was so great to work with- she listened to my ideas, and then drew the most amazing sketch ever- it was perfect! She was especially helpful in making our design the perfect size and number of tiers for our guests. The cake was beautifully displayed at the reception- the silver cake stand is a must. I wanted blue hydrangeas instead of a cake topper, but I was worried about the flowers wilting by the time we cut the cake that night. Diane assured me that she could make this work, and it was absolutely beautiful!! Many guests commented on how great the cake looked and tasted. I have continued to recommend this bakery to many of my friends!

    Fabulous cake! Fabulous service. These folks were great to work with and gave us a beautiful cake. The cake was made to look like stacked presents, and it was so realistic we actually had a guest think it was the gift table! We got so many compliments on our cake and it was delicious. Would recommend to any bride.

    Diane at Decadent Designs was extremely accommodating and gave us a second sampling when my fiancee was able to come with me. We worked on the cake design together and it turned out more beautiful than we pictured!

    We are not big fans of cake so we opted to go for a dessert display. We had cake balls, brownies and pecan diamonds. Our guests still tell us how much they loved the desserts! Decadent Designs and Jan especially, were a great team to work with. They do not pressure you into anything and have great ideas for ways to personalize cakes or desserts. I did use them for the grooms cake and it was phenomenal!! It looked EXACTLY as the design did. The only thing that was a bit of a hassle for us was I felt the delivery fee was a bit much and they were not flexible with decreasing/changing it. We ended up having someone pick them up and bring them to the venue to avoid the added cost.

    Decadent Designs is a fantastic bakery! They have an ecceptional selection of cake flavors, filling flavors and icing flavors. During the cake tasting session we were given ample opportunity to taste all the flavor combinations and to browse several photo albums of past cakes. We also were permitted to design our own cake, we did not have to use a template. They also work well with the florist of your choice and will deliver to your site.

    They did a great job, but forgot the box thing to put the top of the cake in. They were nice enough to bake us a brand new cake on our 1 yr anniversary for free!
