    Their website is so easy to navigate and it was so convenient to set up a tasting. The only thing that was difficult was choosing which cake to go with because they were all delicious! I gave them a picture of what I wanted the design to be and they by far exceeded my expectations. It was beautiful and tasted so good, it completed my wedding! Thank you so much!

    All I have to say is that they did a very amazing job on my wedding cake. I loved everything about it. It was colorful and it was way more than what I expected it to look at. It was worth every penny! Everyone that talked with at the wedding just loved it and just giving me compliments. I will definitely be going back to get cakes from them. Especially since everyone that the cake was so delicious that they accidentally cut into our top tier and I was hoping to save that for our first year anniversary. I'm going to have to go back and re-order my top tier!

    Oh, no! They cut your top tier! No problem, we can make a replica for your first anniversary. Thanks so much for your review. We are so thrilled you loved your cake, because we loved making it for you. Many blessings in your new life together!!

    They were very sweet and professional from the beginning. I went to one other bakery and although it was delicious the prices ranged so much. Penningtons had incredibly reasonable prices and superior service. The cakes were a big hit and we were very happy we went with them.

    My husband and I were very satisfied with our cakes. Even now people say they have never tasted cakes as good as ours. We have given the contact information to several people who have asked for it so they can order from penningtons.

    Absolutely LOVED Pennington's Cakes! My husband and I recently just got married in March and couldn't have been more happier with Pennington's! The cake was so delicious, my cake was strawberry swirl and my husbands was chocolate. We also had a desert table with mini cheese cakes, cake pops and cookies, and everything was delicious! Not only was it delicious but also very affordable! I highly recommend them

    My wedding is in Austin and the prices there were ridiculous. Thankfully Pennington's cakes exists. They delivered to Austin with no problem, and my cake was beautiful! Exactly what I wanted. Thank you.

    Also, just FYI, my wedding was a lady to a lady and I felt very comfortable there and they didn't bat an eye. Very professional and accepting.

    30 years ago when my parents got married, they had Pennington's do their cake. They also did our cake for our wedding a few months ago and the cake was amazing. It was sooooo good that there wasn't any left except for the top of the cake which we kept. I'm not really a cake person, but their cakes were absolutely fantastic and I have recommended them to friends who are getting married.

    All I can say is "WOW"!!! My daughter had not one, but a dozen different cakes for her wedding. She wanted to have an old fashioned church social cake bar, and Pennington's made it happen. She asked for cakes that were not part of their normal inventory -- no problem. And each and every one of them was delicious!! Our guests were sampling two, three, four and more.....and gushing about how moist and tasty all of the cakes were. We had ordered enough cake to serve about 240, about 75 more than we expected and by the end of the evening, nearly all of the cake was gone! We adjusted the quantity, size and flavors of the cakes right up until the wedding and Pennington's was great to work with. They put the finishing touches on the cakes on site and everything looked wonderful. Best cakes ever, you can be sure we'll be using them for future events.

    The wedding cake was beautiful and delicious!!! Our groom's cake was a Bulldog and it is the best groom's cake I've ever seen, and not just because it was ours!!! It looked so real and precious!!! The staff was friendly and the cakes were well priced. We went to several other bakeries to try them out as well, but Pennington's was the best bang for the buck!

    Pennington's Cakes was incredible to work with. We dealt with Stephen for the entire process and could not have been happier. He was extremely easy to work with and upfront about everything.

    I absolutely LOVED my cakes! I was extremely pleased with my cake vendor and have gotten SO many compliments about the cake tasting FABULOUS. I even had a friend at the wedding choose to have her cakes for her wedding done at the same place. I changed my order SO many times and the owner was extremely helpful in helping me decide what I needed while also making the cake gorgeous. I didn't really like the figures on my grooms cake, but they did a great job for making them themselves! The cake arrived at the perfect time and everything about it was wonderful! Thank you!

    Pennington's was amazing! Dealing with them was always pleasant and the prices were very reasonable.
