Although the cake Cynthia designed was for my mother's 90th birthday celebration. It was synonomous with a wedding cake. It consisted of 3 tiers accentuated with a cupcakes & cake pops display and a separate 2 dimensional "90" sheetcake on view in front of the head table. It served 200+ people. The cakes was so tastey & moist that they could melt in mouth. Each tier was a different cake batter as well as the cupcakes & "90" cake (vanilla, red velvet, chocolate).The top tier is in the freezer to celebrate a later time. Just a little bit about my interaction with Cynthia. She responded in a timely manner via telephone, text or e-mail. She was prompt with the delivery of the cakes and setup them at The Colonnade Inn. Most of all, my mother was very pleased and my mom can bake from scratch. In addition, I traveled to her home to do the cake tasting. I was late and she waited patiently for me to arrive.The samples were just as delicious as the actual birthday cakes. I would highly recommend her services. My Associate Pastor, who used Cynthia's services to celebrate her 50th Birthday, referred her to me. She was well pleased with her birthday cake& services. It was a colorful, 4 tier cake and it tasted good, too. Hats off to Cynthia!!!

In the interest of full disclosure this vendor never actually provided any services for me because she refused to return my phone calls and e-mail. That being said...

I would not use this baker, at all. I bought a groupon as a test for presentation, taste and professionalism for my upcoming wedding. After the groupon was bought I attempted several times through e-mail and phone calls to contact the "business" all with no return response. I even contacted Groupon in an attempt to have them mediate. I was told that I would receive a call back from Cynthia within 3 business days. After waiting a full week I decided that it was no longer worth my time and had them refund my money. If you want someone that is responsive I would not use this baker.

I would not recommend this baker to my worst enemy; I reached out to Cynthia 2 months prior to my event. In my intital communication I sent specific details pertaining to the cake and had several follow up conversations as well. Cynthia received my deposit immediately after our intial communication and the final payment a month ahead of the due date. On the day of event she delivered the cake 2 hours late (I had to reach out to her for the status of the deliver b/c she did not contact me regarding tardiness) and upon her arrival the cake was unfinished and damaged. I informed Cynthnia of my disaapoinment, however my event had to go on. A day after the event I reached out to Cynthia expressing my concerns once again, she informed me that she would refund me a portion of the cost due to inconvenience; the was July 29th and as of today (September 25th) I have not received my refund nor will she answer any calls or respond to my emails.

My experience with Cakes By Cynthia in Baltimore MD was really disappointing. I was a groupon customer who placed an order a month and a half before the event for which I needed the cupcakes for. When I placed my order I spoke with a woman- she told me not to freeze the cupcakes, where to pick them up and was very specific that pickup orders are done between 12-5 on Fridays ( the day I was scheduled to pick up my order). When I went to pick them up not only did no one answer the phone but there was a very unsettling voice mail stating that groupon orders are no longer being filled because they were too booked for wedding season. When someone finally answered the door the woman was surprised, tried to argue with me that I didn't place an order and they had no cupcakes to give me- she offered no solution, she did apologize however she made sure to repeat many times how they are too busy... As a consumer I understand getting in over ones head and that's not the customers problem- not only did no one contact me regarding my order not being able to be filled but the business offered a half ass apologie with no restitution. I do not recommend using this bakery.
