We used this baking company for our wedding cake and it was amazing!! We did part vanilla with butter cream and part chocolate with a ganache-praline between the layers, and oh my goodness. Everyone gobbled up the cake all night! We asked for a textured pattern on the cake and added some cake flowers and it was beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful cake. Working with them was really easy and trying the taster cake to pick out our flavors was really fun and a great value! The $25 you spend on the cake (large round) is put towards the final cost. Free cake for days and great service, highly recommended!

Albermarle Baking Company provided our wedding cake. We got married on May 1st 2015 at Pippin Hill Winery. The initially tasting was delish, they offer a Princess cake that we didn't change a thing about. It is a traditional Swedish dessert features vanilla sponge cake layered with bavarian cream and covered with a thin sheet of marzipan. They even offer to give you a top tier every anniversary, and we were planning on flying back to Charlottesville, VA anyway next year but definitely stopping by the bakery. I sampled a few other cakes while I was there and they were all good. The Princess cake was just perfect for a wedding cake. Definitely would recommend this bakery.

I highly recommend Albemarle Baking Co! Riki created a gorgeous, elegant cake for us. He is a great listener and was able to give us the cake of our dreams on our budget. It was also delicious. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding cake they had ever tasted!

We had a great experience with Albemarle Baking Company, who made our wedding cake! Riki made our cake and had a meeting with us in person, where we tasted all the different flavors and designed our cake. We did a very chocolatey wedding cake so ABC also made a more vanilla-flavored sheet cake for those guests who don't like chocolate. Both cakes were absolutely delicious, very moist, and both were gone in a flash! Their pricing is very reasonable and they are extremely professional. But the best part about a cake from ABC is the praline crunch - it is to die for! We definitely recommend Albemarle Baking Company for your event!

Riki at Albermarle Baking Company was such a pleasure to work with! He met with us at the bakery in Charlottesville, went over all the options and pricing, allowed us to taste some of the most popular cake/frosting combinations, and even sent us home with a small tiered cake, with the most popular flavors of cake, filling, and frosting all included. He also made sure he understood our vision for the final product and it was absolutely gorgeous on our wedding day! We had a minor setback with the wrong cake being delivered to our wedding venue. However, with the help of our coordinator and Albermarle's prompt return, we had the correct cake in no time! We can't wait to enjoy our top tier on our first anniversary.

We got Albemarle Baking Company cakes for our wedding, but we have long been fans of this company! Simply the most delicious cakes around and such fabulous people to work with! We got a variety of cakes including The Albemarle (my absolute favorite), Chocolate Praline Crunch, Chocolate Torte, Princess Cake, and Carrot Cake. The entire process was very easy and seamless. Just beware though, they are not open on Sundays, so we had to get the cakes a day beforehand, which did not end up being a very big deal at all.

This bakery is by far the best bakery! We ordered a tiered wedding cake, and a sheet cake for extra. This bakery offers a Tasting cake (for a small fee) that includes layers of all of the available kinds of cakes and fillings. The cake was delicious. I definitely recommend this bakery, I like this better than any other bakeries in the area, and it's not as expensive as the others.

Albemarle Baking Company responded with the following comments:

We make every effort to allow for changes to the cake size because we understand that your guest count can change. The deadline for the final guest count is 10 (ten) days before the wedding, which none of our clients have found unreasonable in the past 14 years. Without knowing the wedding date, or who posted this review, it would be difficult to address this person's concerns.

Riki was always so responsive to my questions and ideas. We ordered a wedding cake, groom's cake, bridal luncheon cake, and birthday cake for my wedding weekend and they were all gorgeous cakes that tasted even better than the looked.

What can I say but melt in your mouth deliciousness !! We had a three tier cake for our wedding. We met with Ricki from Albemarle Baking Company, told him what style we liked. Prior to meeting with him I was asked what type of cake I wanted when we went to meet him he had made us our own cake to try. WOW!! Yum!!
The day of I didn't see Ricki but our cake made it and he used some flowers that our florist had left and decorated the cake . Not only was it amazing in taste but looked it as well!
