    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.

    J Cakes did our cake for our wedding on 7/6/18 and it was delicious! We got a golden cake with fresh strawberries and cream with buttercream frosting and I am still dreaming about it today! They were incredibly kind and professional as well. Everyone loved our cake and I would highly recommend them!

    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!

    J Cakes has been nothing short of perfect the entire time. They communicated clearly what, when, and where I needed to be. I loved the cake tasting and being able to mix and match their wide variety of cakes and frostings. They delivered the cake on time, it was absolutely stunning. I would definitely recommend J Cakes for any occasion!

    My husband and I got married at Bill Miller's Castle in Branford, and when we had first gone to see the venue, there was a book that we looked at from JCakes. It was filled with some of the most beautiful cakes I had ever seen! We had also gone to a bridal expo at the venue, and had tasted the cake shooters from the JCakes booth, and they were absolutely amazing. I knew then that I wanted to go with JCakes! When meeting with Hope for the first time, it was a little awkward because she had to keep stepping away from us to help customers walking into the shop to buy cupcakes. But once we got down to discussing our design and cake flavors, I could tell she became inspired with our ideas, which made us super excited! The day of the wedding when I finally saw my husband, one of the first things he said to me was, "Oh my god, did you see the cake?!" I was absolutely blown away when I finally saw it!! Hope and her team created the most beautiful birdcage themed cake for us that was straight out of my Pinterest dreams! We also got so many compliments from our guests about how moist and delicious the cake tasted. One of my pet peeves as a guest at a wedding, is dry and tasteless boring weddings cakes. My wedding cake was both beautiful and delicious! I could not thank Hope and JCakes enough for all the time and work they put into creating the wedding cake of my dreams! They absolutely outdid themselves!

    JCakes was amazing to work with! We were blown away by the taste and aesthetics of their cakes at the tasting. Everyone we worked with was incredibly professional. JCakes was able to take my Pinterest ideas and bring them to life with textured buttercream. Their prices are reasonable, delivery and set up was flawless, the design was everything we wanted, and the cake tasted amazing! If we need a cake in the future, we will be sure to return to JCakes!

    I think the simplest thing to say is that people ACTUALLY ATE our wedding cake. The cake was delicious, it wasn't dry or overly heavy, the frosting was amazing and it was exactly how we ordered it. At the tasting they had a ton of choices, lots of great pictures for us to choose designs from and were able to help us pick out a cake that fit our needs. I highly recommend them not just because it was easy to do business with them, but because the quality of their cake and the presentation were delicious and beautiful!!

    My husband and I had a wonderful experience with JCakes! We met with them to discuss our wedding vision, which included cupcakes, a small cake to cut, and small sunflowers on the cupcakes. They didn't bat an eye at any of our requests, and made us feel so confident that everything would go perfectly. Their prices are incredibly fair, their products are delicious, and their service is utterly professional. I knew that I would not see the cake until the big day, but I wasn't worried at all! JCakes handled the delivery and setup of everything, and it was absolutely beautiful! Our guests loved the cupcakes, and Joe and I can't wait to eat our frozen piece a year from now. Thank you for everything--we hope to visit the shop again soon for a cupcake fix!!

    Jcakes is out of this world. The taste test was fun and quick. We were doing cupcakes so we chose the cannoli and chocolate mousse. We did a small cake to cut for ourselves and it was white chocolate mousse. It was delicious! Hope was so sweet and great to work with, they delivered the cupcakes to the venue which was great. I can't wait to go back for cupcakes just to have some!

    We were referred to J Cakes through the preferred vendor list from our venue. We researched the bakeries and decided to try our tasting with J Cakes based on their website and other reviews. Boy, we were not disappointed! The tasting was delicious and the staff was lovely to work with! Katie was fantastic and decorated our cake exactly to specification - and she was willing to work with our florist to add live flowers that coordinated with the bouquets! Everything was so easy with them and our guests raved about the quality of the cake! So delicious!

    JCakes provided a two-tier cake for our wedding at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake (we did an assortment of desserts). Our chocolate cake with mocha filling and buttercream frosting was phenomenal! I can't wait to eat it again for our first anniversary (if we can wait that long!)
