My (now) husband and I booked Yvette, from Amazing Kakes of Austin back in 2011 (when it was Amazing Kakes) but for reasons out of our control, the wedding had to be cancelled.

When we reinstated the wedding for November 2013, Yvette was top of mind due to her professionalism and tasty cakes. Fortunately she was available, so we re-booked without hesitation! Without asking, she offered to give us credit for the previously paid deposit which we had forfeited at the time that our initial wedding date was dissolved. How thoughtful!

The day of the wedding, the cake was delivered on time, and aptly named, looked "amazing"! But even more wonderful than its appearance, was the taste. All 4 layers were different flavors, and each was deliciously moist! Not what you would expect in a wedding cake at all! Typically their appeal is purely visual and lack hugely in taste. Not so with Amazing Cakes of Austin. I highly recommend her services! We could not have been happier.

The cake was fabulous! Beautiful, delicious, we just can't rave enough about it! The service was exceptional. We had to add more servings at the last minute. It was not a problem. Also, we had cheesecake shots for the grooms table, Yvette's idea since the groom wanted cheesecake. It was very popular among the guests. Thanks for your part in making our event awesome, Amazing Cakes Of Austin!

Yvette and her team did an absolutely fantastic job on mine & my husband's wedding cakes! As a planner in the wedding industry, I have worked with many cake vendors and when I saw Amazing Cakes of Austin's work, I knew that I had to have them create my cake when I got married. My husband and I wanted "show stopping" cakes and boy did we get just that & more! I had a 6 tier chandelier cake over 5ft tall & my husband had fish chasing smaller fish for his cake... They looked SO real!! They looked like actual fish coming out of the water.. It was incredible (and edible!)! We had so many compliments on our cakes. Yvette listened to exactly what we wanted & exceeded our expectations on all levels! Amazing Cakes of Austin is truly AMAZING!! Thank you for helping make our wedding day perfect with the most perfect cakes :)

Everyone at Amazing Kakes was fantastic to work with! The shop was a bit tricky to find but other than that, they were perfect! They were great at coming up with ideas for our cakes and both turned out amazing. Even the other wedding vendors were asking us where the cakes were from because they were so delicious. I would definitely get any cakes I need in the future from Amazing Kakes!

Kim did an amazing job with our groom's cake!

My husband was so sad that our dog, Maggie, couldn't be at our wedding, since we live in NY but were married in Austin...so I tried the next best thing and asked Kim to create a molded cake of Maggie for our rehearsal dinner.

The cake looked amazing - it was at least two feet tall, complete with her heart-shaped Maggie collar and all. Even more, it tasted amazing!! At least a dozen guests asked for doggy bags (no pun intended) of leftover cake because it tasted so good. Kim also delivered the cake to Uncle Billy's on Lake Travis, so I didn't have to worry about a thing.

For great-tasting, amazing-looking cakes, hire Kim!!

Thank you Marissa. I have enjoyed sculpting Maggie. I am so pleased your husband liked the cake. I do all of the sculpted cakes, have been doing it for years, but Maggie was my first dog. Thank you for giving me this opportunity.
