Norma was our wedding consultant for our May 2014 wedding and was absolutely amazing!! My husband couldn't decide on a cake filling so Norma asked him the simple question of "What do you like in terms of sweets?!" his response was "Oreos" and with a smile she said "well there you go, Oreos it is!!" Him and I looked at each other then back at her and she just said "Trust Me". We trusted her and are SO GLAD we did!! The cake was a hit!! Everyone absolutely LOVED the Oreo filling! Highly Recommend Bing's for your wedding cake needs and Norma for your consultant needs!

When I sat down to discuss my cake with Norma, it was so much fun. I looked through their extensive books for ideas to pull from. Bings was able to work with my budget, which is always important. She helped me find ways to make it work in an amazing way. She drew a picture while I talked and she was able to create what I thought was only in my mind. We did a cake tasting to create the perfect mix of flavors. (Of which there was no shortage of at Bings!!) I thought I was talking to The Cake Boss. On our wedding day, the cake looked stunning, and tasted absolutely fabulous. I was even able to work with Norma to create a fun surprise groomsmen cake for my husband, which he also loved. So we had elegance & fun all from the same spot. OH, and we loved their selection of other desserts at the bakery so much, we bought trays of the treats we loved the most for our rehearsal dinner. DELICIOUS! I highly, highly recommend brides use Bings for their wedding day. Everyone commented on how great the cake tasted. And yes, they have gluten free options also.

Norma was so helpful to my husband and I in making the right decision on our cake/cupcakes. We did an 8" round top with cupcakes for guests. They turned out great and the designed worked so well with our cake topper. They were very flexible in changing the cupcake counts a month before the wedding and changed the top cake design the week of the wedding to make sure the cake topper looked perfect!!! I am so thankful I went with Bing's!

While the bakery was not able to do the original design that I wanted, they did work with me to create a beautiful cake. Norma was very healpful and great to work with. The cake turned out gorgeous and everyone commented on how great the cake looked. I didn't get a chance to eat any of the cake, but I know the guest really enjoyed it.

My cake looked amazing and was completly unique. I had three tiers and the top one was lifted off with the "cake topper" in between the middle and top tier to make it look like we were standing in a gazebo (which is where we got married). Each tier was a different flavor so everyone got what they wanted and guest had options. Bings even threw in two pounds of cookies for free beause we paid for our cake in full.

Our reception location provided a wedding package which included a cake from Bings. We were surprised by the number of options that were included at no additional cost to us! We worked with Norma to create the perfect cake for us. We made three layers, all of which were different flavors (note: make sure to ask about the different flavors not included in the tasting (cookies n cream, choc. chips with cake icing!). Bings created a beautiful cake for us (absolutely beautifully decorated) and kept everything straight even through our numerous changes (mainly switching the ordering of the layers). We would definitely recommend them to everyone!

A blessing in disquise. Our original plans were to go with Liz Marden for our wedding cake. However, when her buisness abruptly closed we contacted Bings. Norma made arrangements to meet with me the same day to ensure I was stress free with the abrupt change in plans. We went to the bakery were we were given a tray of cake and filling samples. Norma gave us some time to try them and then we sat down to chat. We decided on our 3 tiers for our guests then allowed my husband to create the top tier however he wants (tons of chocolate and reese cups!!!) We left the appt so happy and excited about our cake! Norma was very responsive and easy to contact. I changed my design a few times in the short time we had. When I arrived at the reception, the planner took me right over to the cake b/c it was so beautiful. The cake was not only beautiful and a perfect depiction of what we discussed but it was DELICIOUS!

We used Bing's for our wedding cake (actually a small cake with a tower of cupcakes) and couldn't be happier. The cake was delicious (and the best icing out of all 4 bakeries we tried) and it was absolutely beautiful. The contact there, Norma, was very kind and professional, and I can't believe what a great value it was.

Cake looked beautiful, just as we wanted it! Was able to work with our florist (Carrie and Gamble's) to get our cake flowers easily since they are right next door! The tasting was accurate and representative of what was delivered, great job. Hubby loved the cannoli filling! Can't wait to unfreeze it and eat it on our anniversary ;). Thank you!

Our cake was great! Bing's was probably the easiest vendor we dealt with in all of the wedding planning. I made an appointment to do the cake tasting, we went in, made our selections, and that was that. The produced exactly what we asked them to. The cake was delicious, and it looked beautiful. I wish that every vendor we dealt with could have gone as smoothly as our dealings with Bing's.

They were absolutely fantastic. The cake was delicious and from what I heard one of the best cakes some of the guests had at a wedding. The cake looked just like my Martha Stewart picture and I have already had my top layer for my one month, and it's still delicious. They were the most reasonable for cake vendors and I'm glad I didn't spend a lot and got exactly what I wanted.

Bing's was one of the only bakeries that still does cake tastings . They were very cost affective for the amount of people we were serving and the cake was not only beautiful it was scrumptious. We have already decided to order a cake from them every year on our anniversary.

loved our wedding cake .
norma consultated with us for our midsummer night dream theme.

it was good , pretty and depicted our theme. Norma created a sketch of my cake from my description and I was in awe .

the cake was so yummy guest asked for seconds and thirds .

small communication glitch freaked me out one week prior to my wedding is the reason bing didn't earn all 5s. and even with that issue the staff was apologetic . ill be back next year for our anniversary cake

We wanted to use all local vendors for our Newark, Delaware wedding. Bing's seemed like the logical choice and it turned out to be the right one. My husband and I had envisioned a cake unlike any other - topped with pewter Dungeons and Dragons miniatures as the bride and groom and surrounded by pewter miniature zombies. The woman who helped us with our tasting at Bing's took it a step farther and suggested doing a design of dots around the cake that would subtly look like the dots of a six sided die. We ordered a cake to feed 80 people but it probably could have fed 90. Looked great and tasted great too!

I brought in a picture to our tasting and Norma assured me that she could re-create it. She did not disappoint, it was beautiful! We were very happy with the top layer which was carrot cake, it was extremely moist and delicious! The bottom layer was pound cake with butter cream icing in alternating vanilla and chocolate...it was a little dry compared to our tasting. Overall, we were happy with how it turned out.

I wanted to use Bing's from the very beginning, because I love local bakeries, and found their exterior charming, their hours quaint, and their reviews promising. I went for a tasting with my mom, and found the taste and presentation to be a little ordinary/down-to-earth, but then again, so were the prices! A few choices were actually quite good (chocolate cake + raspberry filling; the cherry pie, the lemon meringue pie!). I was on a strict budget for my wedding, and wanted a fairly large spread (pies + two-layer cake) with an aesthetic appeal. When it came to the big day, the cake/pies were beautiful, and the guests were very complimentary about the yum factor.
