Christina made a grooms cake for my wedding. My husband is a big scuba diver and she made the coolest scuba diving cake ever! I gave her some ideas of what I wanted and the final product was awesome! Everyone raved about how cool the design was. The cake was also very delicious! Christina has a strong attention to detail. All the details from the scuba diver to the fish on the cake were done incredibly. I would recommend Cakes by Christina to anyone! She did awesome!

She can mix and match and cater to exactly what you want. The pricing is upfront and a tremendous value for what you get. I would highly recommend Christina for any event you have.

Christina made my cake for the wedding. It was not only beautiful but it was delicious as well. We tried several samples at our cake testing but we ultimately decided on the champagne cake, but they were all delicious! I had a specific style I wanted her to replicate. The design was very intricate but Christina did an awesome job and the final product turned out exactly how I wanted. I heard so many positive comments about how beautiful and tasty our cake was. I would definitely use Christina again and recommend her to others!

We loved the cake Christina made for us! We told her what we wanted and she designed it perfectly. Not only was it beautiful, but it was delicious! We had chose 2 layers and each was a different flavor... Lemon with raspberry filling, and caramel with apple filling. They were both so good. I will definitely order from Cakes by Christina again!

I found Christina through my sisters who were charged with finding a bakery for my wedding cupcakes. They went to a cake tasting at Cakes by Christina and loved it! They told me she had the largest cupcakes of all the places they had tried! Based on their recommendation, I went with Cakes by Christina for my wedding cupcakes. I could not be more pleased with how everything turned out! Christina created a beautiful world map cutting cake which was exactly what I had dreamed of. She offered a variety of cupcake flavors and fillings! She was even willing to go above and beyond to create cupcakes without eggs or gelatin as many of my guests were vegan. All of my wedding guests raved about how delicious and beautiful her cupcakes turned out! Thank you Christina for making our wedding day so special!

Christina was wonderful to work with. We didn't know what we really wanted in our cupcakes but she had tons and tons of options. She was very flexible to work with as she met with us after work in the evening which helped us out a lot.

I was not happy with how the cake tasted. the cake was dry unlike the cake presented at the cake tasting . also the topper fell off of the top tier of the cake and slid down causing the cake to look a mess . We had told her that the topper was heavy and she didn't prepare the cake for it . I was highly unsatisfied .

As the owner of Cakes by Christina I want all of my clients to be satisfied with the product they receive.

I am so sorry to read that you were not satisfied with your cake. As discussed in our consultation, and as written in the contract, I do not advise cakes to be moved once set up at the venue. The reason is because it compromises the stability of the cake. When the dance floor in which the cake was displayed on was moved by the venue, it unfortunately, compromised the stability of the cake topper, causing it to fall. I hate to read that happened, but that is why I strongly encourage cakes not to be moved.

During the decorating process the cake was torted for quality assurance and everything was as it should be. Since the venue cut and served the cake I have no way of knowing how long that process took or how early the cake was cut before served. It is unfortunate that the wedding cake was not the same quality as the cake you enjoyed during your consultation.
