I have very mixed feelings about my experience with Athan's, which I think are best summarized by what become a catch phrase of sorts regarding my experience: "He's hell to work with -- why does he have to make such an amazing cake??"

Quality-wise, Athan's is top-notch. My engaged guests were asking me for the bakery for their own weddings. I couldn't have chosen any other cake for my wedding.

That said, Aris is not easy to get in touch with. He doesn't respond well by email, and he rushes you off the phone. He also never ended up sending me a receipt for my cash payment for the cake, but accidentally sent it to my venue instead. Everything worked out fine, but he was hands down the most difficult of my vendors to work with.

If you can be patient and active about getting information from Aris, his cakes are totally worth it. Despite my difficulty with his responsiveness, I would still recommend him, and I would never change the bakery that I used.

Athan's Bakery makes the tastiest cakes all around Boston. This is the bakery we always go back to, so for our wedding, this was the easiest decision to be made. We were offered multiple flavor choices (from mango, to fig mousse, to traditional chocolate ganache), all delicious! We worked directly with the owner to decide on the best option, delivery service was offered, as well as a cake stand so we didn't have to buy one. The cake was a success and everyone asks me for the address!

Exquisite European-style cakes. Wonderful Mediterranean flavors and gorgeous decoration. Everything is fresh, no additives. They'll do whatever flavor combinations you want, and are lovely to work with. Nice smaller business. They'll also do individual cakes and desserts if you like. Their cake was the highlight of our reception catering.
