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.

Cakes By Carolynn did an amazing job with our cake! The majority of it had to be done over the phone and email because I'm not local and they did it exactly the way I wanted. It also tasted great, which was really important to us as well. We got their signature flavor, which I hadn't expected to do until the tasting and it was delicious. I had several pictures that I sent to them that I wanted to combine with different bells and whistles and they did it perfectly! I would definitely recommend them!

Cakes by Carolynn made our wedding and grooms cake last weekend. I provided them a picture of a mint green wedding cake I found online with gold details and pink roses on top, along with a baseball grooms cake. They absolutely nailed it! Both cakes were perfect! Taste was amazing very moist and we couldn't have been happier! They delivered directly to the venue. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Thank you for such a wonderful job!

We were married at the Grand Plaza Resort Friday Aug 22nd 2014. Cakes by Carolyn was highly recommend by the Grand Plaza Resort. I took a picture of the cake I found on the internet that I absolutely loved. Cakes by Carolynn had no problem making the cake for us. Cakes by Carolynn recommended we spray the cake with a sugar coating. So glad I took their recommendation. The cake was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and tasted amazing. All the guest loved the cake especially my grandson who ate 4 pieces. I highly recommend Cakes by Carolynn.

I got married August 7th and the cake was one of the highlights from our reception. In addition to the cakes being fabulous. Ours was Raspberry Amaretto. The staff was so helpful. I live in Texas and had original contracted to have my cake down by someone else that was recommend by our wedding coordinator. However, the baker backed out a week before my wedding. I read some reviews for Cakes by Carolynn and they were all fantastic. I called and explained the situation. They told me to come in when I got in town and they would help me out. I showed up on Tuesday and they were able to have the cake done for my wedding on Thursday evening. I will definitely be here again the next time I am in Florida.
