Michael was a pleasure to work with. He will accommodate your requests. He even drove to my house to do the cake tasting. Not to mention that his cakes are so delicious. He did a reese's peanut butter layer and a chocolate ganache layer that were just awesome. We live a little far from westminster, so he setup a video conference call to look at different cake designs and discuss flavors. I also found his cakes to be heavier and have more substance than other places I tried.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Artistic Desserts! Michael was a dream to work with, very easy going and helpful. All I had was a vague idea of what I wanted, and Michael helped turn it into a beautiful and delicious masterpiece! He was fantastic about getting back to us, making sure we remembered things, helping us with ideas, and the cake was the most delicious thing I have ever tasted!

This is absolutely the place you want to order your cake from!

This baker is affiliated with our venue. Since we ordered cake through them, we rolled the cake tasting into the food tasting. Bonus! :) One tasting - one trip - easy! We were offered several different flavors of cake and icing and chose red velvet with cream cheese. The cake was delicious and BEAUTIFUL! I worked with Michael directly to order waterproof ribbon to add to the cake. We could not have been more pleased with the cake! It was exactly what we wanted and really, really looked beautiful! We have our top layer for the anniversary as Michael gave us a small topper in addition to the actual cake (wedding only 70 people). And Michael was so pleasant to work with - congratulated me on our wedding every time we spoke, sent me an email 2 days before reassuring me everything was on track and there would be no hiccups. Highly recommend!!

Michael at Artistic Desserts did an outstanding job creating the perfect rustic wedding cake. I gave him some fairly unconventional requests and the cake came out exactly as I imagined. I'm certain that twigs are not a common cake decor, but they pulled it off beautifully and let's not forget that the two cake flavors we chose were absolutely delicious! Our guests raved!

I currently used Michael from Artistic Desserts for my wedding cake. It was a bit of a drive out for the tasting but he made it very comfortable. He served us tea and coffee as we tried some of his best selling flavors. He showed us some of the cakes that he has designed in the past. He asked us a lot of questions about details making sure we were happy with the design and flavors of the cake. We got a 4 tier cake, the bottom was Reese's peanut butter cup, the next one was chocolate with chocolate, the next was red velvet and the top tier was pumpkin spice. The cake was amazing. We had asked for fall color leaves to climb up the cake with twigs. About a week before the wedding he called me asking what kind of leaves I wanted and how big to make sure he got all the details correctly. He sent me an email of all of his leaf templates and their sizes. I picked the one I thought was most appropriate. Looking at the cake on my wedding day I couldn't have imagined a better looking cake. It was exactly what I wanted it to look like. The cake was a bit expensive but I think it was worth the cost for such good quality and care.

We didn't get to taste much of the cake, as the day went by fast, but it looked AMAZING,,,,, our guests all said the cake was great. We saved the top layer for our anniversary, although I'm sure it'll be gross like everyone else's lol.

We met with Michael at the recommendation of our photographer, and we were not disappointed! Our cake tasting was extremely professional and a lot of fun; Michael had us to his home, set the dining room table for us, had a slideshow of examples of his work, and had a thorough (and delicious) display of cakes and fillings for us to sample. I am gluten sensitive, and he provided me with a gluten-free chocolate cake to try. I've eat a lot of "gluten-free" bakery products, and this cake was so much better than store-bought or boxed versions - it was dense, moist and didn't crumble and fall apart like most of other products do. We had several other people at our wedding who are also gluten sensitive/intolerant, so Michael provided us with a separate gluten-free cake as well as a gluten-free top layer for my husband and I to take home and eat. The fillings and buttercream frosting were all gluten-free, and they tasted incredible!!

In terms of the rest of the layered cake, it was amazing! We heard great feedback from many of our guests on the taste, and it looked exactly how I had imagined it. Michael was open to all of our ideas, and he was very flexible with and accommodating to us when our guest count changed in the months leading up to our wedding. The delivery to the venue was on time, and he worked with our florist on-site to set up the flowers on each of the cake layers. I was 100% confident in him based on our interactions with him and the consistently great reviews here on WeddingWire, and that confidence was absolutely justified. I would highly recommend Michael for any other wedding or event, and I'm certainly keeping his number on hand for our next celebration!

We attended a tasting at our venue, Grey Rock Mansion and Artistic Desserts is the cake baker for this venue. We sampled the cake there and it is hands down the best cake I've ever had in my life. I was so excited for my wedding day to have another piece of cake LOL! We chose the Italian Dream flavor for one tier, and the chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling for the other two and they both are fantastic. You will NOT be disappointed. Michael is a dream to work with and so is the cake!
