We cannot thank Tamera and Johanna enough for all that they did for us. Tamera's ideas and guidance helped us make a truly unforgettable day with memories that will last a lifetime. We had the most amazing lemon cake with a passion fruit filling. A simple black and white cake on the exterior, but when we cut into it, there were 7 brightly colored layers of the rainbow. We paired that with matching flavor cupcakes for the guest. We also had amazing chocolate cupcake filled with dark chocolate ganache and topped with salted caramel buttercream. We highly recommend this amazing team!
Our wedding cake was beautiful and delicious. We had a smaller cake and a variety of dessert options. Pies, mini cupcakes, macaroons, tarts. Everything went.
Our cake turned out beautiful, just the way we wanted! They have have the ability to make more detailed cakes, or keep them simple! It tastes absolutely amazing too!! Highly recommend!
Tamara was able to organize a late evening tasting for us since we were out of town bride and groom. Everything tasted good and she gave us suggestion what when together. I had a couple changes after our initial meeting on the decoration, but Tamera and Johanna knew what I wanted. On the day of the wedding, the cake was delivered and it was exactly what we wanted. It tasted delicious as well! I would recommend them!
Provided a complimentary cake tasting in their quaint shop. After we decided to book with the cakewalk shop we mailed our signed contract and deposit, several months later as the wedding was approaching I received an email stating that there was no records of my signed contract or payment. After proving that the check had been cashed and sending a new contract we had no further issues. I had many compliments from my guests about how beautiful my cake was and many guests didn't think it was real because the frosting looked flawless. We had a four tier cake with two flavors, two tiers were a white cake with raspberry buttercream and white chocolate ganache and the other two tiers were white cake with orange buttercream and dark chocolate ganache. The flavor and texture of the cake was very good. The only issue we had was the minor miscommunication about the deposit and contract which was quickly taken care of.
People are still talking about our cake! Gorgeous and absolutely delicious. The absolute perfect cake for our wedding.
My husband and I LOVED our experience with The Cakewalk Shop. The mother-daughter team did an amazing job with our cupcakes, beautiful wedding cake, and helping to set up the cake table. Everyone loved the cake flavors (browned butter is amazing!) and the cake table looked dreamy. We would absolutely recommend them!
The desserts were delicious and the dessert table looked beautiful! We loved visiting the shop and having our tasting, and they were great at providing accommodations for vegan and gluten free guests. They even picked up the platters at the end of the evening (which is typically an extra fee). The only thing they need to work on is their response time with emails. Other than that they were great and we would absolutely work with them again!
I can't thank Johanna and Tamara enough for crafting up the perfect wedding cake for our wedding day. Not only do I think that their cake is the best around, but I was looking for some specific flavors and they ended up creating a new cake recipe for us. I was looking for a cake that wasn't too sweet, so they created a sour cream pound cake with white chocolate filling and summer berries inside. I can't even tell you how delicious it was. For our second flavor, we chose from their menu and ended up with chocolate with salted caramel frosting and brittle inside. We did a fresh berry sauce for guests to pour over the cake. Guests are still raving about how delicious our cake was.
As for our design, by the time we went in for our cake tasting I was "decisioned-out." I had some photos of things that i liked, but couldn't choose just one to save my life and honestly didn't care. I just wanted it to look pretty. In the end, I told them to just have fun and create something they thought was beautiful. I walked into our reception and was BLOWN AWAY by our cake. It was so perfect and gorgeous. There are so many pretty cakes, but it was fun to see what they envisioned along with the rest of the design for the wedding I had shown them.
Finally, I had secretly planned a groom's cake with Johanna. My husband was so surprised and it was really fun to see how they crafted the arena floor for his favorite basketball team.
We were pretty easy customers for wedding cake. I really wanted my parents who live out of town to come tasting with us so I needed a place that would let us taste on a weekend. The tasting set up was so adorable and I loved that we got to mix and match our own tasting!
We never heard back about paying the bill off before the due date but after I sent an email we got the invoice and it was taken care of pretty quickly.
The cake tasted great on the day of and looked BEAUTIFUL! It was simple and perfect the way I wanted it and they coordinated with my florist to arrange flowers on it on the day of. They also made me a custom topper and I am saving it in my wedding keepsake box!
The Cakewalk Shop provided our cutting cake, cupcakes for guests and french macarons as our wedding favors and they were fantastic. They were flexible in scheduling a tasting outside their typical hours and responsive to our questions. In addition, they generously offered help to box our macarons. We received many compliments from our guests on how delicious everything was. I would definitely recommend them!
Turned out better then I even could imagine. They were on time and very helpful when I needed it. The cake and cupcakes were so good and guest wanted to take some home :)
They prepared cake for us, it was looking pretty cool and delicious thanks for everything !!
Yummmy cake here !! I definitely recommend them !!!
I was a little disappointed with the final cake because the color was not correct. Also - the cake was kind of dry. When I pay $750 for a cake - I kind of expect it to be perfect. I honestly wish I would have went with Simply Desserts in Fremont - even though they don't actually do wedding cakes. At least I know the cake would have been delicious. : (
SOOOO Yummy! Cakewalk Shop was so easy & fun to work with. The cake tastes as good as it looks, too!
My husband & I actually booked them before doing a tasting because the reviews were so high and we were not disappointed.
Upon finally testing out the flavors, we tried 4 different kinds of cake and numerous toppings to the point where it became difficult to choose. We settled on alternating tiers of red velvet & spice cake. The day of the wedding the cake arrived early and it was stunning! Would recommend Cakewalk to all future couples as the price point and quality are top notch.

When we first visited our venue, Swans Trail Farms, we heard there was a bakery onsite and were thrilled to learn that they made not only cakes, but pies too! After tasting the pie holes (single serving pies), we were completely sold and decided to get a small two tier cake from them too. They waived the minimum cake cost for us and allowed us to use a cake stand of our choice at no additional cost since we got married onsite. They even baked the pie holes that evening and brought them out to our reception still warm from the oven! They were a huge hit and the cake was absolutely delicious too! We couldn't be happier with our experience with The Cakewalk Shop!
We ordered wedding Pie for our 3.14.15 wedding and they were delicious and affordable. We ordered apple and mixed berry and people couldn't stop raving about the berry! We found Cakewalk Shop through our venue and they worked with our coordinator to deliver everything- it was seamless. I would definitely order pies from them again!
I was in a crunch as my prior baker disappeared so going off of online reviews only, I bought a cake from The Cakewalk Shop.....and I was NOT disappointed! We chose two flavor combinations for our cake: the salted caramel filling was TO DIE FOR and the champagne cake was so delicate it melted in your mouth. The customer service was very helpful and her kind words calmed my stress. I have referred several friends and family to her and will continue to do so.
Can we just say AMAZING and DELICIOUS!! You have to give The Cakewalk Shop a try!!
I am not a sweets person; I am not even a big fan of cake. I usually pass when cake is offered because it always just seems so plain and not exciting. All of that changed when we met with the ladies of The Cakewalk Shop!
We had the brown butter cake with coconut and salted caramel filling and it was divine! ME…The person who didn’t like cake was in heaven and I couldn’t wait until our wedding to share the amazingness The Cakewalk Shop is with everyone.
We definitely had to share a whole lot sooner so we ordered our wedding cake flavors for two birthdays in our family before the big day. EVERYONE couldn’t stop talking about how delicious the cake was! We had family as excited as we were to eat cake at our reception.
The cake was beautiful and exactly what we wanted. It was simple yet elegant and matched our wedding perfectly!
We tried a lot of cake that just didn’t really do it for us before going to The Cakewalk Shop. We were glad we found them! We had a beautiful and delicious cake that was right within our budget yet looked like we could have spent a pretty penny!
First off Yum! There cake is delicious! The cake tasting was fun, they let us try several cake flavors and different types of frostings and we could even mix and match! They let my fiancé and I alone for a little bit so we could discuss which was our favorites and which combinations we liked. We thought this was so nice!
They were so flexible with the amount of cake I ordered...Originally I had anticipated 160 guests but ended up with 130. About 2 weeks before I called and asked if I could change the size of the sheet cake and they worked with me so I didn't pay for extra cake!
The caterer I used said my cake was the prettiest cake she has seen! The Cakewalk Shop did an amazing job. I had showed them a few pictures of ideas and they did a drawing of their ideas and I told them to go with it. It was so beautiful!
Tamara and Johanna are so wonderful! They made an absolutely beautiful and delicious cake (or two..)! So many different flavors to choose from, and all so wonderful! We had a 3-tier cake as well as a groom's cake. Top and bottom tiers were lemon cake with one layer of lemon curd, 2 layers of raspberry buttercream, middle tier was browned butter cake with milk chocolate ganache, and groom's cake was carrot cake with spiced cream cheese and ginger. All flavors were a hit!
We had a very simple cake in mind, though of course we knew that a simple result often takes more work to pull off than the extravagant look. The tasting was fun, and we felt we had good guidance on what would and wouldn't work, which really helped. The end result was perfect and not only looked good, but matched the day perfectly and tasted amazing.
This place was amazing! I was planning my seattle wedding from CO and were able to fit me in last minute for a tasting when I was only in town one weekend in June. The tasting was great with a wide selection of cakes and frostings and worked very well with the venue, they were just down the street. On the day of they delivered everything and the catering staff set up (so things wouldn't melt in sunlight). Everybody LOVED the cupcakes! We loved our adorable cutting cake! We had 3 cupcake flavors for our guests and our cake for us. They were beautifully decorated and tasted great!
The cake here is SO delicious! Everyone asked for more! We had the browned butter cake with raspberry mousse and lemon cream cheese filling for one of the cakes and a browned butter cake with chocolate ganache and caramel for another cake. They were winners!
