The lovely Alex and Bijoux fine cakes made us the most beautiful wedding cake. Working with Alex was a true pleasure and I feel so lucky that such a talented artist and chef made the cake for our big day. Alex sat down with me right when we got started to talk about my vision for the cake, she listened to my ideas, made suggestions and we took it from there. Then, was the tasting which was a fun experience in and of itself. Alex brought tons of samples to the tasting so that we could get a sense of their various flavor combinations, get ideas, etc. After the tasting, Alex worked with me to get exactly what we wanted and was very responsive to all of my emails and indecisiveness about flavors :) I still can't get over how incredible our cake both looked and tasted. It was a 4 tier cake with gold icing and cascading ivory flowers. It was almost too pretty to eat and I'm so glad we have pictures of the cake so we can always remember it. Thank you so, so much, Alex and Bijoux!!

Bijoux is the best choice you could make for your cake and dessert needs for a wedding or any other party! Tiffany and Alex are easy to work with and capable of providing a creative quality product every time. I have a gluten allergy so they were able to make a perfect cake and gluten free desserts for the dessert table at the reception and then came up with a great idea for take-home edible favors for our guests. Everyone at our wedding could not stop talking about the cake and dessert table because it was beautiful and had something for everyone. We have used Bijoux for other special occasions since our wedding and we have been happy every time!

Our wedding cake was breathtaking & incredibly delicious! Tiffany is very friendly & super creative - she really took the time to get to know us and helped us articulate what kind of cake we wanted. She even found a way to do something that she had never done before - a topsy turvy cake. The final product was so much more than we ever envisioned (did i mention how delicious it was?? I ate two pieces!) & we still receive compliments on it - thank you Bijoux!!!

My husband and I wanted a really dense, old fashioned, moist pound cake with cream cheese frosting and a delicious seasonal filling and that is exactly what we got. Our main priority was to serve a wedding cake that was delicious, as many cakes tend to be pretty but don't taste good. Our almond pound cake with peach filing was exactly what we had in mind. All of our guests commented on how delicious the cake was and they still talk about it to this day. We also had Bijoux put together our dessert table. It was so beautiful and each item was perfectly presented and delicious. We would definitely recommend Bijoux to anyone who not only wants a beautiful presentation, but the most delicious and memorable wedding cake and desserts in the Washington, DC area.

I found Bijoux Fine Cakes through my reception venue. They were a great find! I ordered both a groom's cake and wedding cake from Bijoux, both of which were top quality. My favorite part about the cakes are their delicious flavors. Rather than the standard, we were able to get a coconut cake with a lemon and cherry curd filling.. yum! Everyone I spoke with at the reception loved it.

Not only were the cakes delicious, they were also beautiful. I did not really know what I wanted my cake to look like and Alex worked with me to come up with a clean and classic design that fit right into reception.

Great service and great tastes!
