Our wedding cake was simply beautiful! She worked with us on the size of the cake base because we were having trouble finding a cake stand. She is very responsive and wise. She was able to take my design ideas and bring them to life! The cake was delicious! I usually do not enjoy fondant on cakes but I did not mind it because it was soft and not overly chewy. If you have an idea that is outside of her comfort zone, she will certainly let you know it. That being said, there's not much that she can't do! I was VERY impressed when we arrived for the tasting. She had cupcakes of the different cake flavors individually wrapped along with samples of icing and filling on the plate. If we wanted to try something that was not on the plate, she simply went and got it for us. She has several books with pictures of the cakes that she has created in the past. She let us look at them at the initial tasting and at the second appointment when we finalized the cake design. She was very accommodating and patient with us. She showed us the size of the cake pans to give us an idea of how big the cake would be and told us how wide to buy the ribbon that we wanted to use. And the price for the value cannot be beaten! Ms. Wanda is amazing!!!
Wanda was wonderful to work with! The cake was beautiful and elegant. It not only looked amazing, it tasted amazingly delicious!! Overall we were thrilled with the experience!
Wanda is a gem in this industry. She was recommended by our venue (Heritage Hunt Golf Club) and was exactly what we were looking for! The cake was absolutely delicious and everyone at the wedding was praising it. All the options we tried at our tasting were great. We had even tasted a slice she had frozen prior to our appointment and we couldn't tell... and all her example cakes were beautiful, with lots of options. Considering this, she's one of the best values you will find in northern Virginia. The price was very reasonable, and she was able to work with us to get us the cake we want in our budget. Not to mention she's such a fun and welcoming person! We absolutely would choose her again if we were able to do it all over.
This cake was delicious! I’m so glad I went with Wanda!!
Our wedding cake was perfect, and delicious! Highly recommended by my whole family.
Holy moly, Wanda is just THE BEST!!! From the very first steps of contracting and the tasting, Wanda was so patient with all of our questions and kind! Everything is operated out of her home, and it feels like a very personal experience! The cake was out of this world, and more beautiful than we ever could have imagined!!! Wanda, we cannot thank you enough for everything you did for our big day! If you're looking for a cake for any occasion, this is your gal!!
We were so impressed with Wanda's cakes. She was very flexible, meeting with us when we were in town from Ohio and trying to plan our wedding. She worked with us to get the look we were going for. The cake was beautiful and even more delicious. We were eating cake for almost 2 weeks after the wedding and it still tasted great! We cannot wait to pull out the topper in a year and have more! :) Thank you again Wanda!
It couldn't have been easier to order the cake for our daughter's wedding. We met Wanda, chose the cake, had a tasting and enjoyed a beautiful, delicious cake last weekend for the wedding!!
Wanda is amazing! Her cakes are delicious and beautiful. She was such a pleasure to work with!
I found Wanda through the preferred vendors at my venue. She was responsive and great to work with. She cares about her customers and really works to fit your budget and schedule. The cake turned out perfect and tasted so good. Thank you Wanda for helping make my day so special.
My husband and I really enjoyed working with Wanda. Besides just being a genuinely nice person, Wanda is very easy to work with and knows how to make cakes that are both tasty and works of art. She responds to emails promptly and is not afraid to give her opinion when her client is equivocating on decisions. Wanda was also flexible in customizing a cake flavor for us--spiced rum. I was not disappointed that some guests left before the cake cutting because the leftovers were delicious! Even a week after the wedding, the leftover Kahlua/chocolate chip cake w/raspberry filling was still moist and flavorful! I typically think that fruit fillings are disgusting, but her pineapple and raspberry fillings completely won me over.
I got so many compliments about our cake, which was executed exactly as I envisioned. Several people commented that Wanda's was the only fondant they've ever liked. A relative that is also a professional cake decorator praised both the taste and the decorating. Last but not least, Wanda's pricing is an incredible value in such an expensive area. It was nice that she didn't charge extra for fondant (as most local bakers do) and her delivery fee was also reasonable. We look forward to going back to Wanda for an anniversary cake!
Wanda made our wedding cake for September 2,2017 and it came out gorgeous! We received so many compliments on our cake. She made the cake exactly like we wanted. She delivered the cake, and ordered a cake stand for us that she did not have. She is amazing and highly recommend her for cake services!
I met Wanda at an Open House at Chantilly National Golf Course and after that I knew I had to get a cake from her. She is such a doll and great to work with. I gave her a picture and vision as to what I wanted and she deliverers exactly the cake I wanted. Not only are her cakes beautiful but reasonably priced and delicious. Many people at our wedding complimented how delicious and beautiful the cake was. Highly recommend her for your event, especially wedding. Thanks for making our day special and beautiful!
Wanda is such a wonderful woman and made our beautiful wedding cake. She was very open to hearing what ideas we had for doing a naked cake and was very helpful with ideas on how to decorate. Our cake was beautiful and was delicious. I hope we have an opportunity to have Wanda make us another cake in the future!
Best cake I have ever had! I met Wanda at the wedding expo back in September and I fell in love! Such a sweet lady! Went in for cake tasting and she was able to do gluten free for my Mother and Mother in law! Sugar free for my Dad! 150 cupcakes for our guests and not to mention the amazing cake we had for us and our wedding party! We wanted Oreo cake but it wasn't listed so without hesitation she said she can do it!
I brought in a picture of what I wanted for my wedding cake and Wanda absolutely nailed it! Wanda was a pleasure to work with. The cake not only looked beautiful, but tasted so good. Wanda was reasonably priced and a joy to work with and talk with. I will definitely use Wanda again in the future!
What a spitfire; this woman knows cakes. We made a last minute decision to get a formal wedding cake, and we were recommended to Wanda. We tasted her cakes, and didn’t go anywhere else after that. She had a pile of photo albums from her decades in the business to help give you ideas of what you might want, but was flexible on design. Good prices, great cake (the carrot cake was out of this world!!!). We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a baker!
Wanda is great! She is so fun, and man does she have some cakes under her belt. I never looked at more than one of her books before I figured out exactly what I wanted, and sure enough it showed up exactly the way I wanted as well. Also, the cake was delicious, and while I did not get to eat more than one bite at the wedding, I am definitely looking forward to the anniversary cake.
Wanda not only listens and does a beautiful job decorating the cake, the cakes are very delicious. We were able to have multiple types of cakes and fillings. We ordered more than we needed and there was not any left as everyone took more than one piece. She is also very reasonably priced.
We loved our cake from Wanda! She did a fantastic job! We got the exact cake that we pictured and couldn't be happier. The cake was delicious! Wanda was professional and very easy to talk to. The cake was delivered on time and in perfect condition. Highly recommended!
We cannot say enough amazing things about Wanda! She was extremely professional and very easy to work with. During the consultation, she was friendly and had so many delicious cakes to try! She was able to personalize our wedding cake with subtle details that fit our style. Not only was our cake beautiful but it was delicious! We still get compliments. She was also extremely reasonably priced compared to other bakeries in the area. She delivered our cake without charging a fee and was all about customer service! We highly recommend her!
We instantly liked Wanda when we met her at a wedding show at our venue. She was extremely personable and her cake was delicious! When we found out she was a Maryland grad, like my husband, we knew we wanted her to make our cake! She has several cake examples at her home and many photos of her work. We enjoyed getting to know her as we tasted several flavors of cake, filling, and frosting. We chose a yellow cake with buttercream frosting, with one layer having chocolate filling. It was a very traditional design which we had requested, and she made it exactly as I had in mind. She delivered the cake early, and our floral designer decorated it with fresh flowers. Since Wanda is a Maryland Terp, I was excited to ask her to make a surprise groom's cake of Testudo, the U. of MD mascot! "He" was perfect and a big hit with everyone, including many Terp fans! Wanda's prices are very reasonable, and she is very easy to work with. I was able to get the wedding cake and the groom's cake for less than what some bakeries would have charged just for the wedding cake. I highly recommend Wanda's Cakes because of her delicious cake, reasonable prices, beautiful and creative designs, and the pleasant and stress-free experience!
Wanda was so easy to work with. We tried delicious cake combinations at our first appointment, chose from there and showed her the design we wanted. Our cake was a showcase at the wedding. SO GORGEOUS! Wanda made it look exactly like what we wanted. It was also incredibly delicious. We can't wait to have to top layer on our one year anniversary! Wanda, you're the best!!!! Lianne and John
Wanda was a lovely experienced baker and the cake was delicious! She also accepted our special request for funfetti cake, which the guests loved! Wanda took extra time the day of to deliver it right to the table and decorate with our fresh-cut flowers, the cake was exceptional! Thank you Wanda!
