    Katie was recommended to me from a friend who is also a wedding planner. I went and had my tasting and it was some of the best cake I had ever tasted... my sister had a massive wedding and a very expensive cake and it was nowhere as good as the one Katie made for my wedding. She was able to create exactly what I was envisioning, and what I found on Pinterest haha... The cake was moist, the filling was delicious and she is just the sweetest thing! I loved it sooooo much that I reordered the top tier of the cake for our 1 year anniversary!

    White Chocolate Cake with Raspberry filling is awesome

    A themed wedding can be hard to execute and pinterest can make you feel inadequate when you can't have what you're looking for (that isn't over budget). Katie was able to provide exactly what my daughter in law asked for, delivered within our budget AND WAS FABULOUS!! The cake was delicious, moist and beautifully decorated. Every guest commented on the taste and texture, and really enjoyed it. I highly recommend Katie. She'll even make you sample cupcakes so you can taste test!!

    Katie provided a beautiful and delicious cake for my daughters wedding. All the way from the cake tasting appointment through the wedding, Katie provided great customer service and an amazingly delicious cake!! I called Katie about a week before the wedding because I was nervous about the size of the cake. She was so accommodating and agreed to add another layer to the cake to ease this nervous Mother's mind! (And I have to say, there was not any cake left!!) I highly recommend Kakes by Katie for any special occasion cake you may need.

    We met Katie at our venue's catering/tasting event, where we sampled some delicious mini white chocolate cupcakes. We planned on ordering our wedding cake through Publix, but when we tasted those little cupcakes, we decided to do a little research and schedule a tasting with for the following month. The tasting was so fun and laid back, and the tasting portions were absolutely huge! We got to try nine different flavor combos, all of which were delicious, to the point that we had a hard time settling on just two combinations for our small cake. In the end we went with one tier of almond cake with amaretto cream filling, and a second tier of lemon cake with blackberry mousse. Both were delicious, and the cake itself was beautiful, a perfect reflection of our original cake inspo picture. We ordered the minimum required fifty servings of cake, though our guest count wound up being lower, and were glad to have so much extra cake on hand when everyone started requesting second helpings! By the end of the night, it was all gone, and my husband and I were happy to have some generous pieces packed away to eat on our honeymoon the following day! Thanks Katie for a gorgeous and delicious wedding cake!

    Our wedding cake looked and tasted amazing. We received so much feedback from guests about how wonderful the cake was and nothing went to waste . It was a beautiful triple level cake with three different flavor and filling combinations. Katie was also very receptive to all our requests .

    After the wedding, we called Katie "an angel in the night" because she literally swooped in, made the cake with perfection, and left without a sound. She was great, communication was great, and execution was great! She made the before process easy and all her cake flavors were delicious it made it hard to choose. We asked for a plain white cake with rainbow inside and that's exactly what we got. Loved it!!

    Kakes by Katie made our wedding cake for our “Notebook Themed” wedding at the Winterbourne Inn. Our cake was so perfect and absolutely delicious. It was a huge hit! Katie was so professional and easy to work with. We met with her for a tasting which was fantastic. Funny story, neither my husband nor I are big cake eaters so we weren’t really excited about this part of our wedding, but we went to the tasting, trying to keep a positive attitude. When Katie brought out many different samples, we took the first bite, we looked at each other and were blow away. This was cake? It was absolutely delicious. Better than any cake we had ever had. We tried to contain ourselves during the tasting but I know we looked like vultures going through all the samples. We booked her immediately. We did a three tier cake with Traditional Vanilla, Champagne Strawberry filling, and Key Lime. She also provide incredible cupcakes as part of our desserts. Everyone loved all she made. She was prompt to respond during the process and delivered on time. We would HIGHLY recommend Kakes by Katie for your wedding or any event.

    Katie is very accommodating and a very busy Baker! I was going to use Publix for my Wedding Cake but they wouldn't do anything but Chocolate or Vanilla on the cake itself and I wanted Champagne for my cake. I called Kakes by Katie and told her I wanted a Champagne cake with Strawberry Glaze filling and Vanilla Buttercream icing and that I had my own "Topper" and that I also wanted fresh strawberries cut like Roses and placed around the cake as garnishment and she said "No Problem"!

    Katie's cakes are delicious! Lemon with blackberry filling was to die for, as was the strawberry cream cheese and chocolate. The cake was beautiful, delicious and Katie was very accommodating and easy to work with!

    Katie is amazing and I am so pleased we decided on her cake services for our wedding. Our guests are still talking about great our wedding cake was. She offered so many options during our tasting and it was so hard to narrow the flavors down! She's very professional and her pricing is unbeatable! Thank you again Katie!

    The cake was gorgeous and tasted amazing! Most cakes dry out after a couple of days, but a week later and it was still very moist. Her flavors are also different than basic cake shops so you can personalize it!

    My daughter's cake for her wedding was so beautiful and delicious! We had tons of compliments, especially the quality of the icing! My only thing was, and not sure why, because I never actually saw her, but she didn't use our cake stand or her wedding topper! But we didn't realize it until it was all over, and it looked and tasted delicious regardless!

    Katie is an amazing baker. I booked her for the grooms cake and I can't wait to see the look on my Fiancé's face. Her flavors are so delicious, I couldn't stop eating the samples she gave me. I'm super picky about icings, but hers was spot on. Her prices are really great too!

    Our cake was gorgeous AND delicious!! We scheduled a tasting a few months before our wedding, and Katie brought out a plate full of cupcakes, all different flavors!! They were all delicious, but we ended up choosing the first one!! Our cake was coconut with coconut cream filling. YUM!!! Katie also drove our cake from her location in Jacksonville all the way to our destination at Fort Clinch State Park on Amelia Island!!

    By far the best cake I have ever tried. You definitely want be disappointed choosing Kakes by Katie. She was hands down by far the best she is so flexible with the flavors does not have to be 1 flavor. Very professional, you can truly tell she loves her job.

    Katie's cakes are SO GOOD! She was our first cake tasting - and our last. Her icing is incredible and the flavors were out of this world. We were able to have a four tiered cake with four different flavors. Our favorite was the white chocolate cake. Our quests were amazed by how wonderful the cake was (a few of the guests were looking her up while they were eating their slices). The cake itself was very moist and matched the icing perfectly. We decided to have a cake made for the rehearsal dinner and it was a chocolate cake with chocolate covered strawberries. The strawberries themselves were tremendous and the cake was out of this world! We decided to take the top layer with us on our honeymoon and it was VERY good. Thank you Katie for an amazing cake! We will see each other again for birthday cakes!

    I had my mind set on who was going to do our wedding cake from day one of meeting Katie. I changed my mind several times regarding the design throughout the process and she was always happy to accommodate me and give great suggestions. She responded quickly to any questions I had and was always so professional. Our cake turned out absolutely beautiful and we received so many compliments on how good the cake was! She is absolutely amazing at what she does!

    For my wedding reception, my Fiance and I wanted a baker that would provide delicious cakes for our wedding. There were only few wedding items that my fiance wanted to have a decision in and the cakes was one of them. When we had our consultation with Katie, my fiance loved her numerous cake flavor and had a hard, but fun time choosing the flavors for our wedding cupcakes. I also loved the various cake designs she also had for our two-tier cake. As an out-of-State bride, Katie was prompt to in responding to my emails and the cake and cupcakes were amazing for our wedding day. Our guest loved the cupcakes and we would recommend Kakes by Katies for any wedding.
