    Flawless tasting

    My fiancé and I had an amazing time at our tasting. The staff was so helpful and friendly. I was able to tell Hope what I kind of had in mind and she took my thought and made it happen. This will be my 3rd cake I order from them. I highly recommend J Cakes.

    So delicious!

    J Cakes made me the most delicious cake and cupcakes for my wedding! The selection of flavors is awesome and we got exactly what we wanted! Our guests are still talking about the cupcakes and wishing they could have more! I will definitely choose J Cakes for future events!

    Beautiful and Delicious Cake

    Our wedding cake was so gorgeous and delicious! Everyone raved about it for days after the wedding. The team was easy to work with and very flexible with last minute changes like adding a cake stand. They also provided and placed the hydrangeas on our cake. Can't recommend enough.

    Amazing wedding cake

    JCakes was phenomenal from our tasting to our wedding day (and beyond since we ate some leftover cake after our wedding). The cakes are delicious, they seamlessly re-created a cake based off my picture. They were flexible with dropping off our cake topper and flowers. Overall, super happy with how our wedding cake turned out. Also, they had great suggestions for how to save some money, suggesting we use a sheet cake along with a 3-tier cake.

    Simple and Delightful

    JCakes was wonderful to work with. They were super easy with helping us order a cake that fit our budget, as well as picking flavors that we'd enjoy. It was a beautifully made cake, and it tasted amazing too. I am not a huge sweets person, but this cake was worth a second slice. I would use them again for any of my cake/sweets needs.

    Beautiful, delicious cake

    We were required to use J Cakes because they have a contract with our venue (it's included in the venue package). That being said, if I was doing it again, I would absolutely use J Cakes by choice. Not only was the cake beautiful, but it tasted so good!!! In my experience, wedding cakes usually look beautiful, but taste pretty awful. In contrast, this was actually one of the best tasting cakes I've ever had! We even had guests coming up to us to ask if the baker made smaller cakes for other occasions-- or even just single cupcakes that they could buy for themselves!

    Not your average wedding cake!

    JCakes did an amazing job with our wedding cake and cupcakes! We did strawberry shortcake and chocolate cannoli. Both were delicious and moist! Our wedding guests are still talking about how amazing our cake was!

    The tastiest cake EVER!

    J Cakes makes the most amazing cake and fillings in all of CT! My husband and I chose a three tier vanilla cake with various fillings, all of them so tasty! We chose the strawberry shortcake filling, chocolate truffle filling, and raspberry filling. We cannot choose a favorite, even if forced! Hope of J Cakes worked with us and our budget so well. We also incorporated tennis-themed cupcakes as the groom’s cake and Hope contacted us multiple times with different design options and pricing. They were also extremely tasty!

    Her decorating is flawless and beautiful. We went with a simple cascade of flowers in our other floral colors of the wedding and Hope matched them perfectly. We definitely plan on ordering from J Cakes again, and cannot wait to recreate our cake for our one year anniversary (yes, we are so obsessed we are already talking about that).

    So yummy and beautiful!

    We ordered 3 different flavors for our 3 tier cake and all were sooo delicious! Neither my husband nor I are big cake eaters, but after our tasting at JCakes, we knew we wanted them! We ate all 3 flavors of cake because they were just so good! We actually had a hard time choosing 3 flavors only because everything was incredible! We ended up with Oreo, mixed berry, and white chocoalte mousse! I highly recommend JCakes!

    Delicious!

    Our venue has a partnership with J Cakes so we didn't actually communicate at all with them so we can only comment on the product. We ordered a simple 2-tier chocolate cake with cannoli filling and white frosting with pearl accent on the bottom. The cake was delicious!!! There were also several other flavors to choose from. We are very happy with how our little cake turned out!

    Yummy wedding cake :)

    Our cake was sooo good! We had a yellow cake with oreo cream filling and a semi-naked frosting design. We got a ton of compliments on it! Other weddings we’ve gone to have had cakes that looked really pretty but lacked flavor. Right from our tasting, we knew that wouldn’t be the case with ours. We can’t recommend J Cakes enough!

    Oh my goodness, we are THRILLED with J Cakes! Beyond their excellent communication and flexibility in helping us coordinate details (we live out of state), the cake they created for our wedding was stunning and absolutely delicious!! Honestly the best cake I've ever had, and they truly helped to make our day picture-perfect. Highly recommended!

    Wedding Cake - Wow!

    Our coconut-with-mixed-berry-filling cake was an absolute hit! A huge thank you to Hope for hosting our tasting (watching us eat a TON of cake) and for providing a finished product that was both beautiful and delicious (a rare find as wedding cakes go)! I'd also like to thank the design team at J Cakes for working with me to have a surprise fondant "peeker" made of one of my husband's favorite video game characters -- it helped add a little bit of our geekier side to our wedding and it meant the absolute world to him. You guys are the best!

    J Cakes does a beautiful (and very tasty) job with wedding cakes! My husband and I went in for a tasting, showed a photo of what we wanted in our wedding cake, and picked our flavors! The whole process was very easy, and the cake was delicious! J Cakes delivered our cake to our venue, and worked with our florist to get the flowers for the cake. We were able to drop our cake topper off in advance, and worked with them leading up to our wedding to ensure our cake was what we wanted! Very very easy process, and the team is very knowledgable, and can work with you to turn any wedding cake into a dream!

    Delicious cake

    We absolutely loved our cake from J Cakes and heard from several people it was the best wedding cake they’ve ever had. A few of our guests even confessed that they ate other people’s plates while they were up dancing! They executed our vision perfectly and we would absolutely order a cake from them again in the future.

    Hope was absolutely amazing! I just stalked her instagram for photos of cakes that we liked and went in for a 45 minute consultation. We are both not a huge fan of fondant, but I had selected a cake that was decorated with fondant. Hope was able to make the same cake with buttercream frosting (our favorite)! She has a huge amount of cake flavors and fillings to choose from - it was probably my favorite part of wedding planning. The cake itself was so delicious we had to eat the rest of it the next day! Thank you for the beautiful cake Hope!
