I would NOT recommend using this vendor for your wedding cake. First of all I will say that the cake did taste good, but that was the only good thing about it. Your wedding day is suppose to be a stress free day and it was ANYTHING but that only due to Annie. She is not good at communication so she will not remember you, what you talked about, and what you paid from one day to the next. That is very unprofessional when paying someone so much money to make your cake. The delivery process was a nightmare. She was yelling at the staff at the venue and my family that the cake was going to melt and she didn't care (I had already discussed with her that the cake would be refrigerated and have plenty of emails to back this discussion). She refused to put my cake together. I am so thankful I had an amazing chef who put my wedding cake together for me as she left it in pieces. The days leading up to the wedding were VERY stressful. I had to make trips to get her supplies she needed to finish the cake...NOT my job. I know she is probably great at making cakes and an awesome person, but I highly recommend going with a bakery. It is not worth the stress of wondering if you will even have a cake. I was very disappointed in the way we were treated and the lack of responsibility for the finished product. I am NEVER one to write bad reviews, but if I can save another bride from this hassle I will.

Annie was super sweet! I love her so much! The cake was amazing. It tasted like heaven, looked like a million dollars, and you could tell she put her heart into making it. I have never been so happy in my life. She is a doll.

Annie was such a wonderful vendor to have for our wedding! She was very professional and willing to provide any flavors and decorations required for our bride and groom cake :) She called regularly to discuss any changes and she was very attentive to phone calls and call backs. She is also the only person I know that can make delicious buttercream look like smooth fondant!!!

After reading her reviews online, without meeting her I chose the Austin Cake Lady. She is an amazingly talented cake maker. We had a little problem with communication just via email, so I would recommend to meet her in person first. Through the months, we were able to work through the two cakes that we ordered. We had the mexican vanilla with bavarian cream and the german chocolate cake and they were AMAZING in taste. I wanted something different than what her normal styles were and with much back and forth, she finally was able to design the cakes that I wanted and they were completely BEAUTIFUL. I would recommend her to anyone. She is a fantastic lady and the BEST Austin Cake Lady!

I picked the Austin Cake Lady because she made strawberry cake, which my fiance and I really wanted and had trouble finding. The cake was delicious; taste-wise, we got a ton of compliments on both the wedding cake (which had tiers of strawberry, Mexican vanilla and French vanilla) and the grooms’ cake (which was chocolate). That being said, this vendor caused the most problems leading up to the wedding. She didn’t have records of deposits that I had mailed, and had a really hard timing keeping track of the remaining balances we owed. Our “contract” was one big scribble, so it wasn’t shocking that she forgot to add a detail to the total cost. When I asked for an updated contract after we made a change, she told me she wouldn't give me one. She then called me the Wednesday evening before our Saturday wedding to ask what flavor the cake was supposed to be… letting me know that if she didn't hear back, she would assume what we wanted! The day of the wedding the best she could do was give the wedding coordinator a 5 hour window for when she was going to drop off the cake.
If you have someone else taking care of the business side as you plan the wedding, check her out because her cakes are delicious and not too pricey. But if you are dealing with all of the vendors and budgeting, I would look somewhere else because the added stress is not worth it.

Joyce was very easy to work with and made my wedding cake exactly as I had described. The cakes were delicious, and our guests raved about how tasty and beautiful they were. I gave her free reign to decorate the grooms cake as she wished, as long as it was chocolate, and she blew us away! She had somehow gotten a picture of my husband and me from when we first started dating, and placed an edible copy of it on the top. It was very thoughtful, and a big hit with our family & friends. She made sure the cakes presentation were flawless, and it was obvious that she paid great attention to detail in decorating both of the cakes she made for us.

I am surprised to see that she has any negative reviews. She was extremely kind and courteous in every one of our interactions... even though I changed my mind several times. Her prices were great, her cakes are beautiful, and they tasted delicious! I recommend her to anyone looking for a high quality, traditional wedding cake at an affordable cost!

You get what you pay for? The cakes were a great price and tasted great, but they where lopsided and she tried to fix it by puting a paper towel under one corner or it, and they continued to sink through out the night. The college emblem was not centered on the grooms cake. She was rude to the bridesmaids when they went out to see them because she was still setting up. There was also a big book keeping problem, she does not keep up with payments very well. Save all your carbon copy checks and bank statements when dealing with her!!!
