Lara made the most incredible cake for us! She provided us with samples of what we wanted to try during the tasting. Our guests raved about how delicious the cake was at wedding. It looked AMAZING. She answered each question I had that came up and helped me understand the process. I can't recommend this bakery enough!Sent on 06/07/2021
My Friend's Bakery's reply:Thank you Jacquelyn for your kind review! I am so glad that you and your guests enjoyed the cake. Best wishes to you and Aron!

Just what we wanted
We knew we were booking Lara for our cake as soon as we met her for our tasting. She is so easy to work with and made our cake exactly the way we wanted it, to go with our white and gold theme. The flavors are incredible, and the cake itself looked stunning. Look no further- highly recommend!Sent on 06/23/2020

My Friend's Bakery made two delicious cakes for our wedding. We wanted a layer of a completely custom coconut cake and a Black Forest groom's cake and this bakery rose to the occasion. Both cakes were absolutely fabulous and some of the best cake I've ever had at a wedding before. The frosting wasn't too sweet and the cake was nice and moist. Not to mention, the cakes were beautiful! Would definitely recommend.Sent on 10/17/2020

LOVED the desserts!!!
Lara is amazing. She was professional, helped guide our choices for our wedding day dessert bar and made each item incredible. We had a small carrot cake for cutting that was beautifully decorated, apple cider donuts as favors, and our dessert bar had carrot cake and chocolate cupcakes, pumpkin whoopie pies with cream cheese filling, mini cheesecakes, pecan tassies, and an oatmeal white chocolate cranberry cookie. Each was SO delicious and she even set aside a box for us to enjoy after the wedding. Couldn’t recommend enough, thanks Lara!Sent on 11/26/2019

Beautiful Wedding Cake
We had a great experience with Lara and she met our needs for what our vision of our cake would be for our wedding! Most importantly it tasted so delicious and our guests commented on loving the raspberry filling.Sent on 01/30/2020

Amazing Bakery for Wedding Cake & Desserts!
Lara was amazing to work with for our wedding cake & dessert! We wanted to do a full dessert bar for our wedding along with a cake. When we went for our consult she had wonderful ideas and suggestions. Not to mention everything she bakes is DELICIOUS. Our guests raved about the desserts - especially the mini pumpkin whoopie pies! She was very responsive, reasonably priced and executed our dessert bar vision perfectly. Cannot recommend her enough!!Sent on 01/13/2020

So beautiful and delicious
Oh my goodness!! Lara at my friends bakery is amazing! She is so friendly, very professional, and clearly talented. From our tasting, to the big day, she was a pleasure to work with. First of all, we received multiple compliments on the design and taste of the cake. People who don’t even like cake were complimenting it. Lara guided our decision marking and allowed us to have 3 different flavors for our 3 tier cake. The cake was delivered on time, and in perfect condition. We cannot wait to break into our cake again on our one year anniversary. I would recommend Lara to anyone and everyone!Sent on 09/27/2019

Best Wedding Desserts Ever
Lara is awesome! We didn't want a traditional wedding cake and were looking for something personal to our and our families' tastes. We decided we wanted a bunch of smaller differing desserts, something that our guests could take home as favors. Lara absolutely knocked this out of the park! She encouraged us to be ourselves and pick the desserts we like best. We went with two different kinds of cookies, brownies, two kinds of mini pies, and cider doughnuts. Everything was delicious and amazingly fresh and flew off the dessert table. We're from RI and would seriously consider paying Lara another visit just to grab more desserts for parties at home. We'd absolutely recommend her to anyone!Sent on 09/04/2019

Delicious and Beautiful
I know many great bakeries around that would be able to do my wedding cake, but I chose My Friend's Bakery. The reason was because she uses Italian meringue buttercream, which is what I prefer. Also, cake tasting was free. I personally am a professional pastry chef, so I was doubting Lara at first. I came in for the tasting with my mother-in-law, who at the time just came from Indonesia, so her palate was still Indonesian palate (most of my guests were Indonesians). We both liked the cake so much. It was very moist and delicious. The buttercream was what I was looking for, so we decided to go with it. On the day of my reception, I could ask for a better cake! All of my guests loved it! The cake was beautiful, better than what I envisioned. I will definitely order another cake from Lara. Highly recommended!Sent on 11/20/2018

Best desserts ever!!
If you are looking for a cake designer who will surpass your every expectation, please look no further! Lara was an absolute pleasure to work with!! I wish I had another event coming up just so I could hire her again!!Sent on 11/18/2018
When we first met with Lara, we had very specific ideas in mind. We went in thinking we only wanted a dessert bar but when we saw and tasted her amazing cakes we instantly changed our minds. Our 3 tier birch cake was literally the best looking and most delicious wedding cake I have ever had. We also had a dessert bar that consisted of 5 different (all equally delicious) mini treats. We had cream puffs, chocolate cream pies, apple cider donuts, blueberry and lemon curd tarts, and cheesecake bites.
Not only is Lara amazing at making desserts but she is also amazing at responding in a very timely manor. I was a very indecisive bride went back and forth on what I wanted and emailed Lara several times. Each time she responded very quickly and told me I had up until 2 weeks before the wedding to make my final decision. That right there was a main reason why she is a brides dream vendor. I have no complaints about My Friends Bakery and I HIGHLY recommend Lara.

Lara did an awesome job setting up our dessert table for our wedding on 09/01. Everything looked amazing, and even more importantly, was mouthwatering. I wish I could have eaten more on the day of the wedding, but I tried most of each dessert, and my husband and I mowed on the cake and cupcakes the day after. We had a small wedding cake, and a bunch of cute little mini desserts. The best in thing in the world was the mini carrot cake cupcakes. We also had chocolate chip cookies, blondies, mini pies, cider doughnuts, mini cheesecakes. Lara was extremely responsive, and setting up a tasting was easy. The service was very affordable, and she was very up front about the cost, your budget, and the look you're going for. At the tasting, she provided a portfolio of dessert tables, or cakes she has done in the past, which was great to see as well. Highly recommend. Thanks Lara!Sent on 09/13/2018

I used Lara for my 8/4/18 at Hamilton House Gardens in South Berwick, ME and she was fantastic! She provided five different baked goods for our wedding dessert buffet table, and each one was delicious! Guests raved about all of them! Her prices are very reasonable, and she is extremely easy to work with. She let us borrow the platters for the wedding as well that she arranged all the desserts on. I highly recommend her!Sent on 08/21/2018

Dessert Bar was a HIT!
Lara was fantastic from start to finish. She was super easy to work with! We did a dessert bar with a small cake for cutting. All our guests raved about our dessert selection. We also did mini cider doughnuts for our favors and the price was right. She also provided us with various decor to display the desserts. I would highly recommend My Friend's Bakery.Sent on 11/19/2018

Lara was a pleasure to work with! Very quick to respond to all of my inquiries and made the whole dessert bar process seamless. Our guests raved about our desserts! We ended up going with mini red velvet cupcakes, mini whoopie pies (original + peanut butter), cider donuts, and a simple single layer cake for my husband and I to cut into. Planning a wedding from 3,000 miles away isn't easy but Lara was a dream to work with! We also rented cake stands from her- she had plenty to choose from and they went along great with our wedding decor.Sent on 11/19/2018

A fantastic wedding dessert venue! A very professional interaction from the start. We gave a very rough "idea" of what we wanted and they simply made it happen. We decided on a sampler table with a Maine theme... the desserts were fantastic. They were super easy to work with, accomodating, and reasonably priced. Everything was perfect, a great wedding dessert venue.Sent on 08/13/2018

Wedding Mini Cupcakes and Cutting Cake
We decided to go with My Friend's Bakery for our Wedding at Steele Hill Resort on June 2, 2018 and it was the best decision!! Lara was amazing and her cupcakes and cake were SO DELICIOUS! Our friends and family continue to rave about how amazing all the flavors of cupcakes and frosting combinations were. We even had a gluten free/vegan chocolate cupcake with vegan vanilla frosting and it was one of our favorite combinations and allowed our friends and family with dietary restrictions to get in on the cake. Lara even delivered and set up the cupcakes in a display that was so beautiful using some wood crates that we provided. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to her homestead bakery where she let us try multiple types of cake flavors and both Italian meringue buttercream and traditional buttercream flavors. Do yourself a favor, go for a tasting, meet Lara, and definitely try the peanut butter buttercream, it is AMAZING! We did our best to make our cutting cake last until our 1 year anniversary and it held up well. We can't wait to go back and get another cake or cupcakes from Lara for a future event! She is responsive, professional, the price is affordable, the cakes are moist, frostings are divine, and you really can't go wrong choosing her for your wedding or important event.
***The cupcakes were so good that our photographer didn't get a chance to get a picture of the full display before guests started eating them, so don't mind the partially full crates! They were too good to wait for dessert!Sent on 07/25/2019

We are so thrilled we used My Friends Bakery for our October wedding! :) Lara was very friendly and easy to work with from day one. We were able to come up with a design we loved after the first meeting. All the flavors we tried were so delicious we ended up getting 5 different flavors!! Lara delivered my cake and cupcakes and even set our dessert table up for us. We had 160 people at the wedding and the prices she gave were UNBEATABLE for that number of guests.
I would highly recommend her to everyone I know and anyone I don't.Sent on 01/02/2018

We had such a great experience with My Friend's Bakery. We had a September wedding at Steele Hill Resort and decided to do a dessert table. We had small cake, apple crisp bites (to die for), different kinds of whoopee pies (amazing), and apple cider donuts. Everything was delicious! It was nice for our guests to grab a bite and keep on dancing! :) They staged everything on crates and the table looked awesome! The desserts were delicious and very reasonably priced! I would definitely recommend My Friends Bakery to everyone! :)Sent on 12/28/2017

I was so impressed from the tasting to the wedding leftovers! My sister said it was the best cake she ever ate. Our cake buffet was absolutely beautiful, I was blown away when I saw it set up at our wedding. It was so simple, yet elegant. All of our guests commented on how delicious the cake and cupcakes were, and the loved the variety the cake buffet offered. A few people told me they had five slices just to try it all! I am already looking forward to our anniversary cake that is in the freezer, and I will find another reason in the near future to order more cakes from My Friends Bakery.Sent on 08/15/2017
