{The Perfect Combination of Style, Taste and Service} With a pastry chef and artist on staff our cakes designs are endless. From classic elegance to whimsical or nautical I believe that your cake should be designed around your vision and style.

Only the highest quality ingredients and always made to order. Your options range from Wedding Cakes to Cupcaakes or even something fun and fanciful like a Dessert Buffet & Bake Sale Tables with handmade local fruit pies with cider donuts.

We are known for our elegant and custom-made cupcake stands which can provide a gorgeous alternative to cake at your reception. Complimentary consultations include a full sketch session and tasting with a large variety of cake flavors to try.

I look forward to meeting with you to design the most delicious cake of your dreams. Contact us by phone: 508-763-4905 or email artisanbakeshop@gmail.com.

Cheers, Meredith Read less

My husband and I went to a number of bakeries looking for a wedding cake, but we were blown away by the amount of delicious choices Meredith and her team had to offer. She grasped our vision immediately and came up with the perfect sketch for our cake. Everyone we worked with there was pleasant and quick to answer our questions.

The cake itself was stunning. We were both just blown away, it looked great. It tasted fantastic, and everyone came up to us to rave about it. We would highly recommend anyone looking for a cake check out the Artisan Bake Shop!

I can't recommend Artisan Bakery enough. We asked to have wedding pies, rather than a huge cake, as we wanted something with a country feel. Our guests really seemed to love this! Artisan worked with us for how everything would be displayed, even coming up with a new idea in five minutes flat when our original idea wouldn't work. It looked gorgeous and the taste can't be beat!

As a lactose-intolerant bride, who is a picky foodie, I wanted a gourmet cake where my guests could still drool over moist cake goodness. Many bakers try to accomplish this, and fail with dry results. After much research, I found Artisan Bake Shop. Meredith was a delight to meet! My husband and I had the best time at our cake tasting and design session. Not on ly the sample of mix and match cake/filling fun to swap around, but she is an amazing artist. I found a whale cake topper online that I wanted made out of sugar. She sugar sculpted our whales with the colors of our bridal party. I had a white beluga whale with a veil and a bouquet that matched my real one, and the groom whale was a humpback with a top hat and glasses holding fins. My gorgeous vanilla and raspberry cake with the perfect little whale cake toppers were a hit! We loved the design, and taste, of the cake! ....so did our guests, who could not believe it was "dairy free" :) I am most grateful for Meredith and team's hardwork, cake tasting, and unique design. My husband and I chose the free small cake voucher instead of saving our top tier. This means we will be in touch as our first year anniversary approaches to chose and pick up a fresh little cake. It will be great to consume and enjoy more cake than we could at our wedding :)

Artisan Bake Shop did a great job with my wedding cake! We met with Meredith a few months before the wedding and even though we didn't have a lot of specific ideas of what we were looking for in terms of cake design she was able to provide a lot of ideas and guidance which was very helpful. She was so easy to work with and everything went seamlessly on the wedding day. The cake was absolutely gorgeous and was everything I had hoped for. It was also delicious and got rave reviews from my guests. I can't wait to go back for our anniversary cake next year!

Meredith was a total pleasure to work with. She was able to accommodate my request for a vegan cake with ease and created the exact cake I was hoping for. She also pulled out a first class cake tasting for my husband and parents prior to the big day which was fun and super tasty! I couldn't recommend her services enough!

Meredith was a pleasure to work with right from the start. At our consultation she had me bring pictures and she took my ideas and improved them. She sketched them out at the meeting and the tasting was incredible. It was difficult to decide on a cake because everything tasted so good. She uses fresh ingredients made from scratch and delivers the wedding cakes and sets them up herself. Her prices are reasonable and the final product is amazing. People are still asking where I got my wedding cake a month later.

Excellent experience with Artisan Bakery. Delicious cake and wonderful desserts. She was very flexible and offered sound advice about quantity of cake and desserts we should order for our guests, didn't upsell us unnecessarily. Ended up being spot on with her estimate and we were left with a dinner to go container or 2 of desserts at the end of the reception (which were eaten later that night).

Even though we just got married a few days ago, I had to write a review for Artisan Bakery, because their cupcakes were so good that I just ate one for breakfast. When you first pull up to Artisan Bakery, it doesn't look like much- just a small bakery store front on a pretty quiet road in a quiet town. When we met Meredith, she sat us down and gave us a few cupcakes to try. When I watched my now husband, who can be particular about his baked good, go back for a second bite, I knew we had found our bakery! We explained our vision (which was somewhat vague) and Meredith, right in front of us, sketched out a full color design the started with a top cake and continued down through the tiers of cupcakes. It was incredible to watch and when she told us the price per cupcake, we found them to be far less than some of the chain cupcake places that we had been researching. As a bride, it is surreal to see something you planned and envisioned on the actual wedding day. The cake and cupcakes looked exactly as I hoped they would. And, to top it off, they tasted incredible. I had worried that we had over-ordered, but we were only left with 8 at the end of the night (now 7 since I just ate one at 7 AM). They were also kind enough to bake us 12 gluten free cupcakes and our gluten-free guests were thrilled to get to eat baked goods! Finally, the part I appreciated the most afterwards, for a nominal fee, they came and picked up the cupcake tiers, meaning one less thing I had to deal with on Sunday. So we highly recommend Meredith and the folks at Artisan- I have a feeling that we will be getting a few more things from them in the year until we eat the top of our cake!
