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!

Jan is simply fantastic. In addition to her professionalism, flexibility, and openness, her cakes were quite honestly the best cakes I've tasted in about 20 years. She was the only baker (after visiting several of the typical, popular Twin City bakeries) that didn't tell our daughter and future son-in-law that what they were envisioning couldn't happen. They wanted to have cakes as centerpieces for all the tables at their reception meaning that the cake would not only function as dessert but as the main decor for the table as well. Because they wanted to do this, they wanted the cakes to reflect their unique wedding color and wanted to have several different flavors and designs. Every other bakery wanted to charge a small fortune per cake to match the color or to have more than one flavor. Not Jan. She was open to many designs, colors and even offered wonderful suggestions to make their cakes unique. And her prices were very reasonable. Jan has a renovated, beautiful bakery attached to her home in Lakeville. Upon learning that I don't know what I was expecting but it was a full stainless steel kitchen, immaculately clean with an impressive display of her cakes. And it smelled amazing!!! After tasting her cakes, we will be driving to Lakeville for any future birthday or special occasion cakes we need even though it is quite a drive for us. It is WELL worth it! We are still hearing from our guests how wonderful the cakes were!!! Jan, thank you for being such an integral part of their special day! You were an absolute joy to work with and we can't wait till our next occasion to order one of your incredible cakes!

I would definitely recommend getting your cakes from Cakes by Jan. Jan was extremely easy to work with, had very reasonable prices, and most importantly....great tasting cake! She listened to what we wanted (which was something that would be simple while still looking nice) and didn't try to push more expensive options on us. We were completely satisfied and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a talented, reasonably priced cake vendor.

So delicious!!! The cake comes standard with 4 layers. We chose 2 different flavors and got so many compliments. The cake was beautifully designed, to our exact specifications... which honestly, was my priority. The taste was "icing on the cake" so to speak! As a bonus, Jan came in substantially below every other cake vendor we tasted with, and none could compete with her flavor.

Its the BEST cake you will ever eat. Its made by a little older couple right out of there house. They have a bakery attached and it smells soo good as you enter. They are the kindest people to work with and are extraordinarily talented people. We tasted many cakes and frostings before choosing what was best for us. I highly recommend marble cake with chocolate ganache and butte rcream frosting!

We are so happy that we went with Cakes by Jan for our wedding cake. We just wanted to have a small two tier cake to display and have for a cake cutting. It ended up being one of our favorite desserts on our dessert buffet. My only regret was not having more! It looked amazing and tasted even better (lemon cake with raspberry and white chocolate strawberry fillings). She was very flexible and professional. We ended up having to cancel our first meeting due to weather and she was able to fit us in for a last minute appointment no problem. Her value was spot on. We were originally quoted by a different bakery almost double what she charged us. We highly recommend Cakes by Jan!

Jan herself is so friendly and professional. Her cake is amazingly delicious. It was the best wedding cake I've ever had, and I'm so glad to say it was my own! Jan is fast at responding and open to changes. Jan called me promptly 2 weeks before my wedding to confirm the details. Couldn't have asked for a better cake or a better vendor! Even my venue had incredible things to say about Jan! Thank you so much for a beautiful, delicious cake and a pleasant and easy personal experience!

Jan Stephens is amazing! If you are in the South Metro Twin Cities area you can't find a better cake vendor - and for all those north of the river she is so worth the short drive to Lakeville to see her beautiful cakes and smell the wonderful creations at her shop! Jan is so fun to work with!! She is so creative and can picture exactly what you are looking for! I got both the wedding cake and the grooms cake through Jan and they were both a huge hit! People actually ate their cake - and we all know that doesn't always happen at weddings! I would recommend Jan to everyone planning a wedding!

Cakes by Jan is AMAZING. Jan is SO nice and her cakes are DELICIOUS!

My husband (then fiancee) and I have different opinions on what makes a good cake. I like the whipped cream frosting and he likes the full sugar royal icing. Jan's cakes were perfectly in between. We went for our cake tasting and tasted so many wonderful flavors of cake and icing/filling.

She is so flexible too! We couldn't decide what type of filling we wanted - chocolate ganache or raspberry cream. Instead of making us decide she did both in the same cake layer at no charge! It was awesome tasting!

She is very affordable (as far as wedding cakes go) and she is prompt and professional. She delivered our cake to our wedding site way before it needed to be there and it looked and tasted AMAZING! We got so many compliments on it!

She also made a grooms cake as a surprise for my husband. He LOVES the Duke Basketball team. She made an awesome cake that was a replica of the stadium. It was so cute! We chose chocolate cake with chocolate mint filling (YUM!).

I could not give her enough compliments. Both cakes were wonderful and I will choose her in a heartbeat for any other event we need a cake for.

Our wedding cake was stunning and perfect and also extremely delicious! We told her how we wanted it decorated and she did exactly what we wanted - it was more than I could have ever imagined! I couldn't believe how affordable it was and she didn't even charge for decorating! We received countless compliments on how beautiful the cake was. I only wish we could have enjoyed it longer! I can't wait to have a piece for our one-year anniversary. The raspberry and chocolate ganache filling was to die for! Seriously, if you live in the area, go with Cakes by Jan - you'll get just as good of a cake through Jan, if not better, than you would get from one of the more expensive, upscale bakeries in Minneapolis or St. Paul - at a much more affordable price!

Jan was wonderful to work with. She made it very easy to see what exactly our cake options were in terms of sizes and flavors because it was all right there on display. She runs her business right next door to her home and we had her full attention for our appointment and spent as much time as we needed discussing our options. Jan was flexible with making changes and had no problem creating the designs we wanted. My husband wanted vanilla and I wanted lemon cake, so she gave us different flavors on each layer to satisfy both of us! Finally, and most importantly, the cake was delicious!
