Christina was amazing to work with! My wedding cake was beautiful and so good and I am still receiving compliments on it weeks later! She custom designed a beautiful cascading branch of red, orange and yellow flowers on my 4 tier cake and it turned out exactly how I wanted! I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Christina was wonderful! It was a real pleasure working with her and seeing all the delicious (and affordable) options. She was very helpful in guiding us when we weren't sure about something and put everything in order the exact way we wanted it. We had a large assortment of cupcakes, from traditional to vegan. Each style came out perfectly! We recommend her to the fullest!

I knew from the first time I talked to Christina that we would be going with her services. She was easy to get in touch with, was very accommodating for scheduling (and even laughed it off when we showed up 15 minutes late for the tasting), and made delicious and beautiful cakes for a good price… not sure what else we could want.
The display cakes she had out when we first visited and the pictures of her previous work showed us exactly what we needed to see and the tasting was an added bonus because everything was delicious and was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience!
Her contract is very informative and covers just about any question I could come up with which was so nice to have. She was also very easy to work with and made sure she had everything she needed before hand so as to not cause any stress as it got closer to the big day!
She sent an email a couple days in advance stating that she had contacted everyone she needed to at the venue and told us exactly what time everything would be dropped off and set up, we didm't have to do a thing! When arriving at the venue for the first time the cake was set up perfectly with topper and all and looked absolutely perfect!
I will never be able to thank Christina enough for the amount of stress she saved me from! I would recommend her cakes a thousand times over to any one that asked (I still dream about the lemon cake with white chocolate ganache filling!!)

We loved Cakes by Christina and were sold from the moment we went to the tasting. We ended up getting cupcakes for 105 people and a small cutting cake for the top. The flavors were just delicious! Our favorite was a strawberry cake with lemon curd filling and buttercream frosting. Then we also got cinnamon roll with cream cheese frosting and a peanut butter chocolate chip with chocolate ganache and buttercream frosting. ALL of our guests raved about how good out cake was! Christina is also a very wonderful person to work with! She for all cost included, she even came and delivered the cake/cupcakes and set everything up! HIGHLY recommend her!

From the very beginning, I knew that Cakes by Christina was who I wanted to use for our wedding cake. Christina was more than happy to welcome my husband and I into her home to do our cake testing; she was patient with us and answered all our questions promptly. I brought two different pictures of cakes that we wanted to take ideas from, and Christina had no issues creating our perfect cake. Our cake was delivered to our venue on time and in perfect condition; I couldn’t be any happier. Our guests were very pleased with our cake, and even our vendors were complimenting on how beautiful and gorgeous our cake was. And of course, on top of that, it was delicious! I would recommend Cakes by Christina to anyone who wants a fabulous cake with a personal touch!

Christina was lovely to work with, and produces extremely tasty and beautiful cakes.

We worked with her for our wedding in April 2015. Initially my mother-in-law contacted her, and informed Christina that I have an allergy to dairy, and would be interested in having the cake baker use their regular recipe but with goat's milk instead of cow's milk (as opposed to using a vegan recipe). Christina indicated she'd be willing to try that.

When she followed up with me later, I asked her the same question - again, she indicated she would be willing to try that and would serve us that at our tasting.

However, at our tasting, Christina served us her vegan recipe; that, and her extremely long contract made it clear that she was, in fact, NOT willing to try anything but her established recipes.

While at this point I made the decision to continue with Christina due to time constraints and other factors, I was extremely disappointed in this bait-and-switch behavior.

In all other aspects, working with Christina went very well! Her cakes tasted fabulous, and the decorations were beautiful. She had provided idea sketches that allowed us to make sure the design would be what we wanted.

Christina was also patient with the delay on our cake topper, and provided the cake on time and beautifully set up.

In all, a great experience once we chose her, but her self-advertising and promises left much to be desired.

Cakes By Christina responded with the following comments:

As the owner of Cakes by Christina I was glad to read you thought the cake tasted fabulous and was decorated beautifully. It is true that the contract does specify that a vegan diet is the only dietary restriction that I cater to. I have this clause in the contract because there are numerous dietary restrictions someone could have, and depending on what cannot be in the cake, the texture and stability of the cake could be compromised. I have several cake flavor vegan recipes that I know will make great wedding cakes.

In the case of this bride, she asked if I could make a cake cow dairy free. I agreed to as I could replace the cow dairy with another ingredient and still maintain the stability required to stack a cake. The cake at the bride's wedding was a cow dairy free cake but not a vegan cake.

There was no bait and switch. The bride received exactly what she ordered.

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 made a beautiful cake for our wedding. Our guest kept asking who we got our cake from. She is very professional and offers just about every cake flavor you want. 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.
