Jan was easy to work with and our cake was amazing- just what we wanted! Everyone commented how good the cake tasted! We did chocolate chocolate chip with peanut butter filling, marble cake with chocolate ganache filling and white almond cake with raspberry filling. VERY tasty!

There aren't enough words to described how pleased we were working with Jan!! We were referred to her by a family friend and we are SO glad that we chose her to create our cake for our wedding. We visited a few other vendors and were blown away when we visited with her! She spent SO much time with us during our initial meeting...she answered all of our questions, gave us detailed information about her process, showed us many photos of her work, and even sketched out options for our cake! In my opinion this was above and beyond for our first meeting. It was so nice to leave her knowing that we already had a fairly good idea of what our cake would look like. This was especially important for us as we were planning our MN wedding from our home in TX. Anytime we had a question we knew she was just an email away which was wonderful. She was so easy-going and patient and did a wonderful job of including all that we wanted. Compared to other vendors we visited many things stood out about Jan...her friendly and relaxed nature and her obvious passion for her craft! BUT..one thing I was so impressed with was that her cake was beautiful on the outside AND the inside! When we had our tasting I couldn't help but smile at how pretty the cake looked cut. We fell in love with all of the flavors she presented. We had trouble choosing so we combined many! Our bottom layer was white chocolate cake with raspberry filling and lemon cake with apricot filling. (AN amazing combination in one slice of cake!!!) Our second layer was pink champagne...which was made with real champagne of course and was a gorgeous pink color! Lastly our top tier was marble, white and chocolate,with a milk chocolate ganache! Yum! She even included a gorgeous silver cake stand for free! Jan went above and beyond for us when we asked her about a week before our wedding to make us a small birthday cake for my mom and cousin for the day after our wedding! Jan is fantastic and we highly recommend her!!

Oh my goodness, I can't believe Cakes by Jan is still a secret to so many soon-to-be-brides to be honest. Hands down, the best value and best-tasting cake than any of the larger competitors where you are simply another booking to them. She was so easy to work, she took my vision and perfected it, delivered our cake to our venue (about an hour's drive for her) and truth be told, charged me an end amount I'm a little sheepish to admit we paid for such high-quality cake for 100 guests (in a good way!!). We had vintage inspired wedding with a champagne tower and being intrigued by an earlier review of hers stating she made a champagne cake for them - we followed suit and boy, were we glad we did! It was DELICIOUS. However, so were many of her other cakes we sampled so we ended up choosing two other flavors as well - chocolate cake with amaretto liquor & white chocolate mousse and marble cake with cream de menthe and white chocolate mousse. Our guests loved every one! We will definitely be going back to Jan to make our anniversary cakes!

Cakes by Jan is the best! Tasted at 3 separate places, Jan was by far the best. Very professional, tastiest cake, and most affordable. Many guests complimented the cake, and she made my life easy (as a busy bride you will be thankful!)

Jan did a fabulous job with the cakes for our October 10 wedding. She was easy to work with, took great notes, and most importantly of all, makes delicious cakes. Several guests commented that it was the best cake they've had at a wedding and a few even thought it was from a more expensive bakery. Thanks Jan for making such a beautiful cake!

Jan was so great to work with. We were invited to her bakery to test a number of different cakes/frosting/fillings. She provided her expertise on the design as I came in with probably 20 different ideas. She was so easy to work with and provided us with a tray to use at the reception site. She was super affordable, and we received so many compliments on the cake!

It was a pleasant experience working with Jan. We had customized our cake with patterns that had to match the color theme and I was specific about the pattern and swirls. She was easy to work with and very patient as well. Very accommodating and flexible. I would surely recommend Cakes by Jan. Affordable for a gorgeous looking cake that tastes delicious :)

Jan is fantastic! We were so happy with her professionalism and her creativity. We did not know what we wanted for our cake, but we did know we wanted a small tier cake and sheet cakes for guests. We had originally thought purchasing sheet cakes from a Costco would be so much cheaper Once we tasted Jan's cake and the prices she offered we chose to have her do everything for us. She came up with a fantastic design for our cake based on the pictures we showed her of what we liked. The options of cake, filling and frosting was fantastic! She had great pairing options and had a great set up when we met with her for a tasting. Jan is also extremely flexible, which was really helpful for us during the planning stage when my husband's schedule was very challenging. Jan delivered the cake and a cake topper, and had everything set up very quickly. I would highly recommend Jan for an event and I would definitely go back to her in the future.

We tasted multiple cakes from MANY different vendors before deciding to go with Jan and it was such a great decision we made! Not only was her cake the best we tasted (her buttercream frosting is seriously to die for), but she also helped us decide how to decorate it so it would go with our wedding colors and theme. We did a three tiered cake and a sheet and a 1/4 of two different flavors, a white almond cake with raspberry and raspberry white chocolate filling and a marble cake with chocolate ganache and white chocolate filling. Both flavors tasted amazing and every guest I talked to at the wedding said they loved the cake and asked where it was from. On top of all that, the cake was also just a PORTION of the cost of other bakeries we got quotes from (even the delivery was included). Seriously, go meet with Jan and try her cake and you will fall in love with it too!

Cake looked great and was delivered and set up by Jan herself, no worrying on my part. We also got tons of compliments from guests about how good it was.
