Kara created an exquisite 3-tiered floral cake for our wedding. Our first meeting was at the tasting -- what a fun and delicious experience! Kara was very helpful choosing our design (we chose one she had done in the past) and flavors (we had a different one for each layer). She was very accommodating with changes and communicated effectively via email. Our guests were very complimentary of both the cake's design and taste. If anything, the cake tasted too good; many of our guests had to try every layer! I would unreservedly recommend Kara and A Cake to Remember.

We loved working with Kara. She is absolutely no-nonsense and very serious about her work. When I had a vision of a simple white cake with gumpaste magnolias, I knew that she would be the perfect woman for the job. She is a true artist - her photos will knock your socks off!

Also - Our wedding was on the more intimate side with twenty guests and Kara was beyond accommodating of our budget and bringing our vision to life. Besides the appearance of our cake - it was absolutely delicious. Our guests raved about how the flavors (almond cake with amaretto filling) were a match made in heaven and the perfect complement to our wedding meal.

Thank you, Kara!

We had our groom's cake and wedding cake done by Kara (she was recommended to us by our venue). We were excited after our first meeting with her because we thought she really knew our vision. Kara was quick to respond to my emails (I had a lot of questions about the groom's cake!) and I was very appreciative about that. I think Kara did a great job with the cakes, but it wasn't exactly what we had envisioned. My expectation for the groom's cake was a round cake, but it turned out square. The details on the cake were great but it just wasn't what I had expected (all the pictures I had sent to her as inspiration were round). Our wedding cake was beautiful (especially the gold flower), but the coloring for the ombre was a little off and the fondant on the top tier started to bubble and you could really see it in our pictures which was disappointing.

Kara Bunting, owner of A Cake to Remember, has to be the wedding cake maker to the stars, truly!!! Her cakes are not only exquisite, they are delicious!!! Her cakes are as beautiful as any of the cakes you see on the TV food shows, really! She made the most gorgeous cake for our daughter's wedding this past weekend. It far exceeded our expectations in the design and in the taste.

When my daughter and I went to her shop earlier this year for a tasting and to pick out the design, we looked through pictures of some of the cakes she had made. They were all so incredibly beautiful, it was so hard to pick out a design. After discussion with Kara and after she saw a picture of my daughter's wedding dress, Kara was inspired to create a cake based on the design of the dress. We had complete faith that she would be able to carry out this vision as we saw how talented and creative she was. Also, in sampling each of the cake flavors, they were all so delicious, we had such a hard time making a decision on the flavor. Kara even offered to bake each layer in a different flavor. I am not a fan of wedding cakes, but her cake is moist and delicious. On Saturday, when I saw the cake, it was really the likeness and elegance of our daughter's wedding dress and it took our breaths away.

It was also a great pleasure working with Kara. She was helpful, professional, and very creative. Her cake arrived in plenty of time too. I would highly recommend using A Cake to Remember for any occasion. I also thought the pricing was very reasonable, especially given the quality and work that goes into her cakes. Kara's cakes are truly a Cake to Remember!

A Cake to Remember was professional and responsive. Our cake was beautifully decorated the way we requested, and we received a lot of compliments on how delicious it was. The problem? The largest tier was not the flavor we asked for, signed the contract for and confirmed for. We had put the flavors of the cake on our menu so imagine our surprise when our guests said they never got to try the bride's favorite flavor - because it was not that flavor!

Since this is the first I've heard of this, I can't really respond until I get more information! Please email me and let me know who you are, since I can go back and verify the contract flavors and the checklist of what I baked that weekend. Without hearing directly from the customer I have no way of checking to see if I made a mistake, and since this review was posted anonymously I can't check until I hear directly from you, so please do email me!

From the start, Kara was a bit frazzled as far as I could tell. Our initial meeting wasn't on her calendar, and there were no samples for us. We had to return several weeks later, because apparently she only makes samples for one or two particular days at a time. The quality of taste of her cake is fabulous, but as for the outside, make 150% sure that she knows what you want. I had asked for a blown glass type outside of her cake, as seen on her website, and apparently in her rush to get through an appointment she had not recorded, she wrote down the incorrect thing. From then on, I did not have another meeting with her, only email communication. When it came to sign the contract, I assumed that the information she had written down during our 10-15 minute meeting was accurate and used that on our contract. Turns out she had written down the incorrect information, and on our wedding day I could not have been more disappointed, to the point I had my mom and sister come up and tell me the wrong cake had been delivered which nearly sent me to tears. The cake she delivered was fine in its own respect, but when I was expecting a completely different and more gorgeous cake, it was heart breaking.

When I called her on my return from our honeymoon, I was told that she was confused and that I had made the mistake. She did not take ownership of the error or offer any sort of partial refund for the fact that the incorrect type of cake had been delivered. I didn't expect to receive any money back, but I had hoped for her to take ownership of the problem rather than attempt to blame me.

I don't advise against using this vendor, only that you make sure that SHE knows what YOU want, and make sure of this before you sign the contract and pay the deposit, after that it is limited almost entirely to email communication.

A Cake To Remember LLC responded with the following comments:

I'm sorry that Rebecca didn't get the design that she was anticipating, and I definitely was confused when she called me today. When I delivered the cake she was there and saw it, talked to me for a few minutes and didn't say anything other than it looked really good, and I had no idea that there was anything wrong. Based on that interaction I had no idea that there was a problem of any kind. The contract that I'd written at our meeting said that there needed to be a flower cascade with specific flowers and colors, and that's what was delivered. There was no mention on it of a pulled sugar design, which is what Rebecca was expecting. I base all of the cakes on what's written in the contract, so I had no reason to do a pulled sugar design. When I sent an email confirming the wedding details I included the description on the contract and it was confirmed again, so I had no reason to think of pulled sugar. I'm NOT blaming Rebecca for any of this, and I didn't say that it was her fault during our conversation, so I'm sorry if that was misunderstood, but I think this was an instance of each of us thinking that we were on the same page when we weren't. She didn't mention a refund and said that the cake that I brought was beautiful and delicious, but it just wasn't what she thought that it would be and wanted to let me know.

As far as the appointment went, Rebecca thought that she was on my schedule that day but I had never heard back from her to confirm, so I didn't have her on the schedule. It's correct that I don't bake samples more than a couple of times a month for appointments, since I don't freeze cake at all. I fit her in between two other clients who were scheduled, so that's why the time was so short. I'm sorry this happened but as far as I knew I delivered what was ordered, and since I got no negative feedback at the time of delivery I had no reason to think there was a problem.

Kara is wonderful! She's very professional and takes pride in her cakes. It tastes real and not commercialized at all. She's affordable and willing to work with your budget to make what you want possible within reason. She responds to email/phone calls in a timely manner. I love that she offers PayPal as an option to pay--very convenient compared to paying with a check (which is an option she offers too...) My husband and I both recommend her for anyone's wedding!

Kara is AMAZING!!! If I could give the value of her cakes a 10 out of 5 I would! She could be charging WAY more given the quality she brings to the table, pun intended. The cakes that she makes are incredibly delicious and her artistic abilities are even more impressive. She made the most beautiful flowers, that matched the centerpieces, for our cake, my guests could not believe they were not live. We had 110 guests at the wedding and the cake was made for 130, there were crumbs at the end of the night! It was very sad not to have leftovers, guess I will have to wait a year for the anniversary topper *sigh*
FYI: If you are not a fan of fondant Kara's is very thin and not at all gummy or chewy. She was absolutely correct when she said we wouldn't notice it. The cake was delicious even with the fondant!
