    Kim was very professional throughout the whole process! The cake tasting appointment was the best I've been to, and I went to about 5-6 prior to coming to this fabulous bakery! Kim was very friendly and walked us through the tasting, sketched our cake for us and delivered the most gorgeous cake to us as well on time and with no hesitation or problems! We're going to be coming back for sure!!

    Amazing Cake!

    Kim and Simply Desserts was actually the third cake tasting we had and after the first two being similarly disappointing we were worried that we weren't going to be able to find something we liked. Kim wiped away any concern that we had, the tasting was phenomenal and she encouraged us to make a fun choice for one of our flavors of green tea cake and matcha cream cheese filling. She made my vision come to life and understood everything I was trying to put into words.

    Best cake ever

    When we first met Kim, we knew we found our wedding cake provider. She was patient and listened to all our needs. She was so accommodating to the point that she even made us Ube cupcakes (yes, we're Asians) as a special request AND they were amazingly delicious!!! We ended up with her earl grey/lavender cake as our main tier and the almond for the rest. We barely had any cake left over and the Ube cupcakes were gone even before we cut our cake. Not too boast, but that's the best wedding cake ever and I've attended several weddings myself. I can't wait to celebrate my 1st year anniversary so I can taste that lavender cake again!!!

    Beautiful and Delicious Cakes!

    The wedding cake was perfect! Exactly what we asked for - both beautiful and delicious! So good - everyone wanted seconds! The groom's cake was so much fun! Custom created from photos of my son-in-law's car. It was a huge hit at the rehearsal dinner!

    Delicious and Beautiful!

    Simply Desserts made the best wedding cake ever! Our wedding cake was a two-tiered almond cake with cinnamon filling and sheets cakes of green tea cake with matcha filling, and they were the best cake I have ever had! During the tasting my now husband and I were a little hesitant to try the green tea cake because we are not huge fans of green tea flavors normally, but it was subtle and perfectly complimented by the matcha filling! Since we had a fall wedding the almond and cinnamon seemed like an easy choice. When we ordered our cake, they also said they would make us a fresh cake on our one-year anniversary, which I am so excited about.
    I also ordered a surprise groom’s cake for the rehearsal dinner and they did a stunning job, I couldn’t believe it was made of cake! They made a car to look like my husband’s 2018 Mustang that his is in love with and the cake looked exactly like his car!!! I couldn’t believe how well they did on that cake and it tasted amazing! The car was their cookies and cream cake and again it was delicious! I don’t think you could go wrong with any of their flavors. Everything about Simply Desserts is amazing.

    October 2018 Wedding

    We loved working with Simply Desserts to make our cake for our wedding in October 2018! The staff was always friendly and responsive to our requests and any changes we had. The cake flavors they offered were delicious and huge crowd pleasers. They made the design of the cake we envisioned come to life with elegant detailing and tiering. The staff delivered the cake on our wedding day to our venue on time and with no hiccups what-so-ever which was very important to us! We would highly recommend Simply Desserts to anyone looking for desserts, cakes, and more!

    Absolutely amazing!!!!

    My husband and I wanted a cake that was Gothic and elegant at the same time for our Halloween wedding. We got the perfect cake! It was three tiers, all different cake shapes. There were black and maroon flowers to match our colors and skulls around the cake to get the Gothic feel. The lace added the perfect tough of elegance to the cake! The cake came out more perfect than we thought it could be because not many people want skulls, flowers and lace. Also, the cake was beyond delicious! We went with a red velvet cake and chocolate filing which turned out to be the ultimate combination. Thank you so much for the perfect cake!!! We were so impressed and so were all of our guests!!!

    Amazing job!!!

    Simply Desserts made our wedding cake, and we couldn't be happier with the end product. The cake looked amazing, and tasted even better!! We wanted a specific flavor of cake (dulce de leche) which wasn't a normal flavor that they made, but Simply Desserts was totally able to make the cake in that flavor and it was a hit at our wedding! They did an amazing job and we look forward to our anniversary cake from them :)

    Delicious and beautiful!

    We loved our delicious and beautiful wedding cake from Simply Desserts. It turned out so gorgeous and I couldn’t wait for the point of the reception when we finally got to dig in… it was amazing! Our guests raved about the cake, and a lot of people went back for seconds. There were zero leftovers, so I’m glad we have the option of a one-year anniversary cake!

    Kimberly was really easy to work with and very responsive via email. Based on the tasting, we had high confidence in her abilities and we gambled on a unique-flavored cream cheese filling we hadn’t actually tasted. It turned out perfectly and was one of the most delicious cakes I've ever tasted. The pricing was transparent and was comparable to other wedding cake options in the DC area – I would say even a bit more reasonable. Thank you, Simply Desserts!

    Simply Desserts did a fantastic job!! Everyone at our wedding loved the pies and shooters! From the cake testing, to discussing which pies we wanted and then adding in last minute shooter desserts- they were completely on top of everything. The wedding cake was absolutely beautiful!! Molly and staff went above and beyond to help our day be as perfect as ever!! I highly recommend Simply Desserts for your next wedding, birthday party and family gathering. I know I sure will be using them again! Thanks so much!!

    Simply the best!

    Kimberly and her team were amazing from beginning to end. During the tasting, she provided different cuts of cakes and dollops of icing that we could mix and match. She let us take our sweet time and gave advice according to how I wanted our colors and flavors. She was very patient when we switched guest numbers around and allowed us basically to do everything we were comfortable with. She offered rentals for the cake and cupcake stands in one flat price. When it came to the day of the wedding, the cake was more beautiful than I could imagine. She got my exact vision and it was DELICIOUS. I'm very picky when it comes to my cakes let me tell you. I chose a lavender earl gray with honey swiss buttercream - simply the best. I went to two other cake tastings that quoted a bit more and they were not even half as good. They put magic in these cakes because they were super moist and with the right amount of icing. Drooling writing this review - wishing I had some right now!

    Kim and Simply Desserts were an absolute pleasure to work with. We told Kim that we wanted our cake to be one of the highlights of the reception, both in presentation and taste, and she exceeded our expectations. It was absolutely beautiful and so many of our guests commented on how delicious it was!

    Simply Desserts? More like simply delicious!!! Once I started planning my wedding, Simply Desserts was the only place that popped in my mind to get a cake. From the moment I reached out for information, to the cake tasting, down to taking that first bite of cake on our wedding, I was not disappointed. The level of professionalism from this team was matched with the taste of the cake....amazing! I got so many compliments on the look and taste of this delicious cake. Hands down I will recommend everyone I know to this place!

    ((We went with a vanilla cake with a honey lavender frosting))

    Simply Desserts was awesome to work with! They listened to everything I wanted and did everything I asked for. I did a Groom’s cake as well as a cake and cake pops for the wedding and received a ton of compliments not just on the presentation and look, but the taste as well. Everything was delicious! We will be going to Simply Desserts for all our dessert needs now.

    Simply Desserts owner Kimberly was a pleasure to work with and the only one around who could make our 3-tiered cheesecake wedding cake come to life. Not only was it beautiful and exactly what we imagined, it was absolutely delicious too! She also includes a fresh one-year anniversary cake, which we can’t wait to celebrate with :) Thank you, Kimberly!

    I would highly recommend Kimberly and Sinply Desserts! She was easy to work with and listened and recreated my dream wedding cake. The cake tasting was easy to set up and wonderful to try so many different flavor combinations. I chose the lavender cake with honey buttercream frosting along with the red velvet cake. Not were excellent and the cake was beautiful!
