CAKES BY CAROLYNN is family owned and operated. The bakery opened in 1989 to serve our community with our talents and to let couples know that with God's love, a marriage can endure even the toughest times.

We offer award winning cakes. CAKES BY CAROLYNN was voted Best of Weddngs for several years from the brides at the Knot and Bride's Choice-Wedding Wire, as well as taking the first place award in the St. Pete Times Cake Tasting Competition. The newspaper touted "elegant, perfect and then some; this is what cake should taste like". We use only the finest ingredients to ensure your cake is as exceptionally delicious as it is exceptionally beautiful.

We invite you to the bakery for a complimentary consultation and cake tasting. Just give us a call during business hours, Tuesday thru Saturday 9-5 to set up an appointment. Let us know what flavors of cake and filling you would like to sample. We will be sure to have the cake ready for you. Looking forward to seeing you SOON! Read less

I do not live in the area, so I was extremely nervous ordering my wedding cake without tasting, seeing, meeting, etc. The service was beyond wonderful. All of my questions were answered without hesitation. I simply sent a couple of pictures I found online of the cake I wanted and it turned out better than I could have imagined. Not to mention, we were married on the beach and weather was Not on our side that day. A storm hit and Dee stayed until after the storm passed (probably about 20-30 minutes) to ensure the cake could be set up properly.

You are right, I have some awesome pictures of the storm approaching; I hope your photographer secured some great pictures too. It was important to me that the cake stay in an air conditioned vehicle until the storm passed. (Actually, I was there for 1-1/2 hours.) We always want you to be satisfied with your experience and your cake. It was our pleasure to make sure this happened. FYI: you were a beautiful bride! Thank you for posting your kind words. Blessings, Bonnie

We used Cakes by Carolynn for our wedding cake. They were 1 of 4 vendors that were included as part of our venue's package. We did a tasting with each vendor, and the cake here was by far the best. They were so nice during our tasting and worked with us to choose which cake and filling combinations we liked the best, even bringing out options we hadn't thought of. The cake that was delivered was exactly what we asked for, and tasted amazing. The cake was moist and fresh, and the fillings were so good. We picked the raspberry amaretto swirl with bavarian cream and raspberry fillings for our biggest layer and our guests raved over it. We'll definitely be ordering more cakes from this bakery in the future, for every special occasion we can think of!!

Our cake was probably my favorite part of our wedding. We showed them our inspirational picture, and they made it happen. Our guests were talking about how good the red velvet was! I changed a few things after our consultation and they were very accommodating with me.

I had an amazing experience with Cakes By Carolynn! Bonnie is a absolute pleasure to work with. We emailed for a few weeks discussing the style of cake I was looking for and ways to cut costs since I had a strict budget. I sent various pictures and styles and she completely understood my vision. I had a consultation with Bonnie and she made us feel right at home. She was professional, gave us her expert opinion, and I could tell she truly cared. I did a great deal of research on Tampa Bay Area Bakeries and spoke to A LOT of bakers. I decided to reach out to a St Pete baker because her work really stood out to me. I was not interested in inedible fondant that I kept seeing at other bakeries and her buttercream work was absolutely gorgeous. She was hands down the most genuine and responsive baker out of a dozen I spoke with! As much as we loved all of the fun flavors she had to offer, we chose a classic white cake with fudge filling with buttercream icing. The cakes at this bakery are moist, the fillings are decadent, and the buttercream icing is clean and smooth! The delicate dots on the buttercream iced cakes are the perfect mix of feminine and classic! I cannot wait for my wedding and to see my vision come to life! Cakes by Carolynn, Thank you for an amazing wedding experience!

Perfect! No other word for these cakes. the tasting went amazing and we had top tier of red velvet, middle was raspberry amaretto with bavarian white chocolate filling, bottom was pina colada with pineapple filling and wow, it was seriously gorgeous. I'm so disappointed it's all gone already lol. Bonnie is fantastic to deal with and we got exactly what we wanted and the flavors were fabulous.

First off, words will not do these cakes justice. Cakes By Carolynn, bar none, the best cake, we have ever had at any wedding. Guests of the wedding are still raving about the cake. Not a slice was left in the building. Raspberry amaretto swirl cake, will drop you to your knees.
Just as important, the customer service was top notch. Bonnie, made things so easy- the professionalism and the confidence they displayed made all the difference in the world. Our wedding cake looked exactly the way we envisioned and asked for!
They will not disappoint you!!!
