The Bake Works bakery happened to already work with my venue (The Smithville Inn) and I could not have been happier with the cake! We didn't want anything too extravagant yet wanted it to be beautiful of course. We worked with Amanda and she was amazing! So friendly and always quick to respond. She did just what we wanted with our cake and even let us be part of it by providing a few extras used to help decorate the cake. And the taste....delicious! We did a traditional black and white cake with the butter cream icing, but when we went for our tasting we didn't dislike anything. I'm so happy our venue was already contracted to work with this bakery!

You can have your cake and eat it too!
The Bake Works was part of our package at The Ashford Estate, but Amanda and the amazing sweets she's able to create ended up being so much more than that. We ended up going with chocolate and vanilla flavors, but that's only because it was the most flavorful vanilla and chocolate we've ever tasted. The buttercream was so delicious, not too sweet, and not too heavy. Our cake and cupcakes were a hit! Thank you for making our vision possible.

Amazing cake and cupcakes!
The Bake Works was included with my catering package so I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. I was quickly assured at our tasting. Their cakes were to die for! We had a small cutting cake and cupcakes for our wedding and there was not a single flavor that didn’t wow the guests. They are still raving over them! The cakes were beautiful, tasty and perfectly completely my vision for my cake table. I highly recommend the Bake Works!

Our cake was amazing! We got many compliments on it from guests. We got married at Smithville so the cake was included in the package. We were looking for something simple yet pretty. I was expecting a very limited selection to choose from however that was not the case. We found the perfect cake for our perfect day!

We had so much fun at our cake tasting here and our wedding cake was pretty and delicious! We went with a white, ruffled, simplistic design and a tier of black and white a tier of mango coconut. Their cake is soft and scrumptious and their mango coconut is to die for. We stayed for the week after our wedding at the beach with family and ate the top tier the last day - everyone again commented how delicious it was. We'll definitely be coming here for our anniversary for a mango coconut cake!

Amanda and her team were phenomenal. The Bake Works has a contract with our venue, The Smithville Inn- and it did not disappoint. Our cake tasting experience was amazing and one of our favorite items to cross off our very long wedding to do list. Every single piece of cake tasted incredible, it was really hard to choose - Amanda is VERY patient during this process! We finally came down to two flavors and then the fun began with designing the cake. I had an idea in mind, but Amanda was able to bring it to life with a small sketch on a piece of paper and then tons of pictures on her iPad to really help us both be on the same page and visualize. Seeing the cake was one of my favorite parts of doing a sneak peak of the wedding reception area before our guests arrived. And the cake was SO FRESH and delicious, everyone was raving about how delicious and fresh the cake was - it was certainly not your typical wedding cake taste! I CANNOT wait to crack that baby open in a short 51 weeks for our one year anniversary and eat some more of the most delicious cake ever!!!

Amanda at The Bake Works is masterful! Ours had to be the best tasting wedding cake we've ever had, and it was SO beautiful! She worked with us to make 2 unique and delicious flavor combinations including FUNFETTI! The cake was delivered on time and totally exceeded all expectations!

Not much of a review to post other than saying everyone at our wedding LOVED our cake!!! Even the vegan cupcakes were a huge hit for our vegan guest too! Well done and delicious!

Bakeworks did an incredible job on our cake for our spring wedding at Smithville. The cake was exactly what we wanted and tasted delicious. It was a very simple process with no problems at all and we couldn’t have been happier!

We recently used The Bake Works for our wedding day, and our cake was absolutely perfect! Not only was it DELICIOUS, it looked beautiful and exactly how we pictured. We had done a tasting about 6-7 months in advance of our big day, and had a great time tasting all the cakes and learning about our options decoration-wise.
The Bake Works was great to work with - probably the easiest vendor in terms of not needing to do too much on our end -- just made sure they knew what we wanted and they delivered an amazing product! Highly recommend. We worked with Amanda, and she was great. Can’t say enough about their great work and delicious cake! Thanks again for everything -- our guests loved it!

The cake at my wedding was breathtaking and absolutely perfect! Waling into the consultation and have a couple of ideas they were able to take all of the ideas and make them into one amazing gingerbread themed cake to match the Christmas decor of the wedding. The cake even included a gingerbread Bride and Groom. I can not wait to work with them in the future!

We used the Bake Works for our wedding cake, and we've heard nothing but amazing compliments from all of our guests! The cake was fantastic (we attended several weddings throughout the last year, and compared to our wedding cake, everyone else's was just OK), and the girls at The Bake Works were so wonderful to work with.

The Bake Works made our cake and favors for our November 25th wedding at The Smithville Inn. We met with Amanda who understood our vision and allowed us to taste many cake combinations. While they all were delicious, we ultimately decided on a pumpkin/vanilla cake. It was perfect for our fall wedding and super tasty! We also asked Amanda if they would be willing to make cookie wedding favors for us. We provided them with favor bags and custom stickers to package the favors. Amanda even did a test to make sure grease didn’t leak through our bags! The Bake Works team went above and beyond and we couldn’t be happier with our wedding cake and favors! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We used The Bake Works for our wedding cake and they did a great job. Not only was everyone was excellent to work with but our cake was beautiful and delicious! We would highly recommend using them!
Valerie · Married on 10/07/2017
Such a beautiful and DELICIOUS wedding cake for our reception. Also, the donuts, and cupcakes I wanted to add to the dessert display were gobbled up so fast! Amanda was a pleasure to work with and helped us narrow down exactly what we needed for our guests to enjoy during dessert. I would recommend over and over again. Thank you Bake Works!

Our wedding cake was so elegant, beautiful and DELICIOUS. I had a picture of a cake that I wanted and Amanda was able to make it our own by suggesting a few details and adding flowers that coordinated with the rest of the wedding. I live abroad and Amanda was so accommodating with arranging appointments for when I was in the States. She quickly responded to any questions asked via email. We also ordered chocolate covered strawberries for the wedding from Bake Works. Amanda was very honest and told us she would only do them if she could find a decent quality of strawberries (our wedding was Sept. 30th). Luckily, we were able to have the strawberries and our guests loved them! We cannot wait to eat the top layer of our cake for our first anniversary!!! Thank you, Bake Works!!!

The Bake Works was partnered with our venue (Icona) so the cake was included in our package. Shortly after booking our wedding I found out that I have Celiac's Disease and we weren't sure what was going to happen now with our cake. Amanda contacted me the day after we did our tasting to follow up and see what we were thinking. I explained my situation to her and she told me how the bakery does offer a GF option (which was cupcakes) and told us how we could incorporate them with the cake. There was an upcharge, but it was very affordable and manageable. Amanda was so responsive seeing as she kept in contact with us while she was on vacation just to make sure our order got in, and she was so professional. I freaked out when I saw our cake the day of the wedding because it was prettier than we could have ever imagined. Everyone loved the cake and told us how good it was. The GF cupcakes were a hit! They were hands down the best ones I ever had, and there were no leftovers since a lot of our non-GF guests started eating them as well!

Our cake (prior to smashing it in each other's faces) was so beautiful!! Exactly what we wanted to compliment our whole wedding theme. Not only was the cake itself gorgeous but it was delicious, too! We went with red velvet and almond. Yum! Thank you!!
Meredith · Married on 07/29/2017
Yes, we may be a little biased, but this was literally the BEST wedding cake we have ever had! From the variety of flavors offered, to the aesthetic of the cake to the actual taste of the cake....there are not enough words! Weeks later and our guests are still commenting on the freshness and flavor of the cake, even going so far as to say that our cannoli filled cake was the BEST cake THEY have ever had! Can you ask for anything more?! My husband and I are doing whatever we can NOT to dive into the top layer of our wedding cake which we're saving for our first anniversary because the cake was THAT GOOD! Already trying to figure out when I can order another cake from them! So worth it!
Ashley · Married on 07/22/2017
Loved our experience with The Bake Works. They helped us pick the perfect design for our four tier cake. After tasting different samples of cake, we chose the coconut mango for our summer wedding. It was to die for! Everyone could not stop talking about how delicious it was . I highly recommend them.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience with The Bake Works! They made and delivered our stunningly gorgeous wedding cake to the Southern Mansion in Cape May. The cake exceed our expectations and received so many compliments from our wedding guests! Amanda was so professional, easy to work with, and very responsive to our requests. We highly recommend using the Bake Works for your wedding cake.
