I recently ordered a cupcake tower for my wedding. The design, cost and taste all exceeded my expectations. The design was exactly what I imagined when the baker and I sketched it and the taste was definitely velvet and delicious. I will definitely continue to do business with this gourmet bakery. Thanks for making my special day truly beautiful.Sent on 10/16/2018

DELICIOUS, beautiful cupcakes for our wedding!
First things first, our experience with Velvet Sky was a highlight of our wedding - the cupcakes were gorgeously arranged, absolutely delicious, and all our guests loved them! Our assumption was 'wedding cake is never that great', but I knew I could count on wedding cakes the guests would truly love.Sent on 05/28/2019
I knew as soon as I started planning my wedding that I wanted to get a cake or cupcakes from Velvet Sky - I used to work near the bakery when it was a storefront, and Jordan's cupcakes have been the gold standard of cupcakes for me ever since! Her icing flavors are so delicious - the peanut butter is a personal favorite! - and are the perfect not-too-sweet, silky smooth buttercream. The cakes are so flavorful and moist.
We did an assortment of mini-cupcakes of 6 different flavors for our wedding (including a dozen gluten-free, which are also delicious!), plus a few small cakes with fruit filling. Jordan was very easy to work with, very professional and did a BEAUTIFUL job setting the cupcakes up, including little illustrated signs to explain the flavors. The small cakes were really tasty - I only tried the lemon filling, but it was very nice and lemony!
Our only complaint, if I could call it that, is that the assumption of 2 mini cupcakes per person proved to be a little low, as people were so eager to try them all that they took more than 2 and we ran out very quickly. I think if we'd had only 2 flavors this wouldn't have occurred, but if you go for multiple flavors, I'd count on more like 3 minis per person!
Thanks again Jordan!

Amazing wedding cake!
This cake was one of the more expensive cakes we tasted in the planning process but was 100% worth the extra money! Jordan was great and she created a beautiful design for us. When the cake showed up it looked exactly like her design. As for the taste, I don’t normally like wedding cake but I loved this one. We ordered 3 different flavors and our guests raved about all 3 of them!Sent on 02/15/2019

Velvet Sky made a cupcake tower with a suitcase & globe cake topper for me for a travel themed bridal shower this past weekend. It was a huge hit! Everyone, including the restaurant staff, was asking where I got it. They had never seen anything like it before. And in addition to being beautiful, the cupcakes were delicious too! Jordan could not have been more helpful designing exactly what I was looking for, and with more than a dozen cupcake flavors to pick from, it was hard to just pick a few. This bakery is a winner!Sent on 09/13/2017

Our venue partners with Velvet Sky and so we were happy not to have to shop around much (although we did taste/consult with a couple others to be sure). Aside from our initial consultation, the bakery and venue coordinated flawlessly without our involvement.Sent on 12/06/2016
While I know most guests don't eat or pay much attention to wedding cake, we were happy to verify that the cake was moist and the frosting well-balanced (not icky sweet!). Based on one or two example photos and our own description, the baker sketched exactly what we had in mind...and then executed it beautifully! Our cake was really beautiful and delicious. My husband was joking that we should eat the top layer immediately (but we'll see if we can wait until our first anniversary to devour it!).

Jordan and her team are absolutely amazing! We met them at an open house for our venue and my husband and I knew right away that we wanted to use them for our wedding. They made a small top layer for us to cut and then we did a cupcake tower. The cake was absolutely incredible and the cupcakes were devoured. Additionally we had velvet sky make cookies as our thank you gifts and they were just as delicious as everything else! Jordan was so easy to work with as well. We had a great experience and would highly recommend them!Sent on 01/18/2016

We worked with Velvet Sky as part of our Hotel package. The hotel hosted a tasting for the cake flavors, which was lovely and super fun. As we were from out of town, all communication with the Bakery was by phone and email, however, Jordan captured exactly what we wanted - design, colors etc. and we could not have been happier with the cake. Jordan was easy and responsive to work with. She suggested ideas which we went with and on the day the cake was splendid.Sent on 01/13/2016

Really responsive and flexible, and her cakes are beautiful.
Having a cupcake tower for the wedding. Can't wait to see how it turns out and will post a follow-up review then.

We got a ceremonial cake from Velvet Sky and mmm mmmm mmmm it was good!!!! I sent them 2 pictures of what I we wanted for inspiration, had a quick phone call, didn't even do a tasting (we kind ran out of time - our fault), and they made our pokemon inspired cake dreams come true! I was worried because we needed to use a decent amount of fondant and I was warned by many that it isn't so tasty, but this one was delish! Our cake was a mix of white cake and red velvet, with an icing in between. So good!Sent on 11/20/2015
We decided to chow down on our topper over the next week and love every minute. I was a struggle even to put a single piece away for out 1-yr.
Oh and the guests loved the look and taste too!

We had a cupcake tower with a small tiered cake on top. The cupcakes (and cake) were absolutely delicious and beautiful. The groom and his mother have celiac and so half of the cupcakes were gluten-free and they were just as delicious as the regular cupcakes. The combination of the cupcakes and an ice cream bar was a huge hit.Sent on 10/18/2015

Jordan and the Velvet Sky team were absolutely amazing to work with! Our cake turned out just as we imagined it and the process was effortless. We didn't even have to touch base with Jordan leading up to the days before our wedding since she had worked with our venue in the past, they were so renowned and trustworthy we knew everything would go as planned on our big day! The best part of our entire experience, the look on everyone's faces after their first bite of our delicious chocolate and cream cheese cake!Sent on 10/20/2015
Thank you Velvet sky bakery for making our wedding so tasty!

I found this bakery online and am very thankful that I did. I ordered a cupcake wedding dress for my Sister's Bridal Shower and it look beautiful and taste delicious!! The staff were EXTREMELY helpful and always have a such a pleasant attitude whenever I came in. Go here for if you plan on ordering for an event. You'll be very glad that you did!Sent on 08/04/2015

The owner/designer was very professional and friendly. Most of all, she was patient in helping us design the perfect cake for our wedding...which wasn't easy considering our tastes were so varied. There is a good array of design, flavor and cake choices and this bakery seemed more willing to accommodate our needs more than others.Sent on 07/30/2015

I used Velvet Sky for my wedding cake and cake pops. Jordan created a cake pop holder that was exactly the look I wanted! She was so easy to work with and the look turned out beautiful. She coordinated the colors to my wedding colors and helped us pick out the perfect flavors. The cake/cake pops were delicious and beautiful! She also made separate cupcakes for my dad, who is gluten free, with no problem! I definitely will be using this bakery for any future cakes or desserts!Sent on 06/29/2015

I used Velvet Sky Bakery about 10 times before my wedding and when it came time for picking a wedding cake bakery, there was no one I would even consider but Velvet Sky Bakery. Thank you for our amazing, delicious and fun nesting doll bride and groom cake. Jordan, working with you is always a pleasure, so much so that I opted out of the cake that was included in my wedding venue package just to use your business! Your attention to detail and creativity cannot be duplicated! Jordan is extremely patient and professional and never criticizes anyone's (sometimes crazy) ideas (like mine). Even though I live in DC now, I will continue to use Velvet Sky Bakery every chance I get for future special occasions. My cake was even more perfect than I imagined!Sent on 10/23/2015

The staff are amazingly professional and always in great moods. They are incredibly simple to contact and communicate with and have done a phenomenal job on our wedding cake. We can't wait to buy more! If we were closer to them, I'm sure we'd be at their store on a daily basis!Sent on 06/09/2015

WOW!! I had my grooms cake made through Velvey Sky and all I can say is that they did a phenomenal job on it! It was 3 tier cake decorated as a tuxedo with the batman logo in the front. It was very tasteful and elegant but still captured the fun theme for my fiance. The craftsmanship of the cake was very well done to say the least. The level of fine detail is worthy to be on tv! There are many different options for flavors for the cake and icing! And because some of my family members are allergic to gluten, there are dairy-free and gluten free cupcakes that I got from them as well! Great bakery!Sent on 02/01/2015

From the tasting to the cake cutting, we were more than happy with the fine workmanship of Jordan at Velvet Sky Bakery. After showing her a few photos at the tasting, she sketched up a custom designed cake that was more than we imagined. The tasting allowed us to mix and match different frostings and cakes for each layer! While wedding cakes are often gorgeous, Jordan's cake was gorgeous and delicious. Many of our guests continue to ask us where the cake was from and what the flavors were that they had. Velvet Sky offers a great customer experience and delivers a phenomenal product!Sent on 08/31/2014

Jordan did out cupcake tower/wedding cake for our small wedding. It turned out wonderful and it's safe to say our guests are officially hooked on Velvet Sky's cupcakes. It was definitely the focal point of out reception. I'm really happy with how everything turned out.Sent on 03/03/2014

Velvet Sky Bakery was amazing. They designed a Philly cake for our wedding in 2013. The best part is, the added Rocky on the back! Not only was the cake unique, it was also delicious. Not to mention the price was extremely reasonable! Would recommend them to anyone who wants a cake that is yummy and a little extra special!Sent on 05/24/2018
