    Guests Raved About the Dessert!

    For our wedding, we decided to do a dessert table rather than just the traditional wedding cake. Magpies was so great to work with! They were very responsive and eager to help us achieve the vision of what we were wanting. After a delicious cake tasting (seriously the cake was so good, we had the hardest time deciding which flavors we wanted), we decided to do 3 different flavors for our cake. We also had mini pies which they were sweet enough to make little heart decorations on. Every detail was so well thought out, and the guests raved about how good the dessert was!

    Magpies was great! Elizabeth was easy to work with even though I didn't live in the area. The cake tasted amazing and looked even better than I was hoping. I would definitely recommend!

    Delicious and beautiful are an understatement when it comes to Magpie's creations. From our cake-tasting and consultation to our cake-cutting, they were a delight to work with. The final product surpassed our wildest expectations. Highly recommend!

    LOOOVEEEE Magpies! They've done 3 cakes for us now including a wedding cake (lemon) and a grooms cake (carrot cake)! Both were delicious and we got tons of compliments on the cakes about how pretty and delicious they were. We also got variety pack cupcakes from them for the wedding reception and they were very popular and delicious! Love to stop into their cool store in Downtown Knoxville on Central Ave. and get cookies, cupcakes, and samples!

    Magpies made us a dessert bar for our wedding that included a large wedding cake, pies, cheesecakes, cupcakes and cookies. They were beautiful and I got so many compliments on all of the desserts.

    We loved working with Peggy at Magpies! She gave us a taste test to help us choose the flavors. The cake was designed by Sarah who is magpies artist and was super delicious and customized to fit our theme.

    Don't get your cake anywhere else. They worked with us to have multiple flavors and icing colors. We went with lemon raspberry and Italian cream cake on alternating gold and white layers, and it was the most delicious cake we've ever had. When we changed our minds multiple times on how many servings we would need, they were totally easy going and got us exactly what we wanted.

    Magpies Bakery did a fantastic job with our wedding cake. We planned our wedding from out of town and found Magpies Bakery easy to work with. I provided them with some pictures and a vision for the cake over a consultation over the phone and it came out perfectly. The cake was absolutely delicious. They also worked with my florist to execute it beautifully. We were so pleased and could not recommend them enough.

    If you are planning your wedding and want the absolutely most delicious and beautiful wedding cake in town, look not further than Magpie's Bakery!! Magpies came highly recommended to me and I could not be happier with our wedding cake!! First of all, Peggy and her staff provided over-the-top customer service!! Everyone at Magpie's was absolutely delightful to work with from start to finish. They helped me design my wedding cake by providing samples and showing me photos of Magpie's wedding cakes. Peggy met with me and my Mom and designed my dream wedding cake on the spot. Every detail was customized to my liking. Peggy baked a three tiered lemon cake with delicate pink buttercream and fondant lace design (to match my wedding gown!!). Our wedding cake was stunning and was literally the icing on the cake for our beautiful wedding and reception!! I cannot recommend Magpie's Bakery highly enough!! They are above and beyond the best bakery in town!!

    We used magpies for our cake table. We ordered 5 round cakes instead of a tiered wedding cake and it worked out perfectly. They were easy to contact and made sure to confirm our order. Most importantly: the cakes were delicious!

    we had a large wedding with about 200 people. i had a 4 tier cake and a grooms cake. they were delicious and beautiful and unique. the thing i want people to know is how amazing their team is. i designed my cake and then had second thoughts. i contacted them and told them my worries. they let me redesign the cake, they never made me feel bad or gave me and drama. i cant say how much i appreciate that. a wedding cake is a big deal, especially in my family. people still talk about how cute and clever the grooms cake was, a 3d crown. just amazing and DELICIOUS!

    We can’t even begin to express our appreciation for the hard work, talent, and time Magpies Bakery spent creating such a beautiful wedding cake. It was everything we imagined and more; a perfect balance of simple elegance with a little farm flair! We received so many compliments from guests— the Italian Cream and Blackberry combination was delicious!!! The whole process was enjoyable (especially the cake tasting), stress free, fun, and your staff is incredibly responsive. You can expect a call from us on our one-year anniversary☺

    Magpies has always been a favorite of mine so when it came to finding a bakery to make our wedding cake I knew I wanted to use them and I am so glad we did! We had a Great Gatsby themed wedding at the Capitol Theatre and I had shown Peggy a picture of a cake I liked on pinterest to use for inspiration. They were able to use that idea and surpass our expectations with how beautiful this cake turned out. I requested they use as little fondant as possible and they hardly used any and the cake looked and tasted incredible. We went with a classic chocolate grooms cake and every bite of it was gone by the end of the night. So I would say both were a huge hit at the wedding!

    The wedding cake was decorated just as we requested and was delicious. It was delivered on time. When I had to add a large number of servings because we had more guests reply that they were coming than we anticipated, they had no trouble making a larger cake with the same design with just a week or two notice.

    Magpies provides so many tasty options - and very classy designs we had a hard time choosing one. Many of our guests commented on how delicious the cakes were, both the wedding cake and the custom groom's cake. Mapgies staff is very responsive, easy to work with, and realiable - they do a great job!
