Lori was the best person to work with for cake! She is also the most reasonably priced "cake lady" around! She was so flexible with me and even met with me outside of her normal hours because I was planning from out of state. After we had made the cake plans, I realized there would be far less people at the wedding than I had originally planned and was able to change our cake order/design a week before the wedding. It was absolutely great working with her!

Lori made our wedding cake, and it was the best wedding cake I've ever tasted. I had lots of compliments from guests about it! Lori is very responsive to emails (the main way I contacted her) and truly cares about fulfilling your vision for your cake. We went in not really knowing what we wanted, and she showed us pictures of her cakes and asked us what we liked or didn't like about them. Her prices are very reasonable and the quality is excellent!

We were BEYOND satisfied working with Lori for our wedding. She was easily one of our favorite vendors! She was soooo friendly and very patient answering any of our questions. We told her that we wanted something simple and she drew us out a sketch to let us know what the final product would look like. The cake itself was AMAZING! We ended up getting the pumpkin, apple spice, and carrot cake flavors and they were absolutely delicious. I was very surprised by this because it seems like 99% of the time, wedding cakes just look pretty but end up tasting pretty bland but this was definitely not the case. She even said that she would send us a replica of our top layer for our 1 year anniversary for free. Talk about amazing customer service! Lori was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her for your wedding cake.

Lori was an incredible help to me during my wedding. She was so gracious during the tasting/planning part of the cake process and she checked in with me several times over the months before my wedding. She totally took care of cake delivery without causing me any additional worry at all and when I walked into my reception after the ceremony I was just amazed to see my beautiful cake. It surpassed my expectations!! It was gorgeous and absolutely delicious. I would recommend Lori and her cakes to anyone.

Lori was great to work with. Meeting with her for the tasting was great as she's such a sweet person. Not to mention all of her cakes tasted fantastic and at a reasonable price! She was always very responsive via email which we really appreciated. On the day of our wedding, the cake looked exactly as we had envisioned and we got several compliments from people saying how good our cake tasted. I would recommend her to anyone!

Lori did a great job making our cake and cupcakes for the wedding! She was recommended by our venue, the Hawthorne Suites (where her office is located), and we were not disappointed. Lori was occasionally a little slow to respond to emails, but her cakes were fantastic. Everyone was quite impressed with the beautiful and tasty work.

Lori prepared a delicious, beautiful cake for our big day!

She was very professional and provided us good advice while meeting with us to plan our cake. The cake was very true to what we had planned with her, it looked wonderful and was exactly what we wanted. Guests had nothing but good things to say about how delicious it was.

Our Cake was delicious! We were able to create a simple cake custom to our wants and needs and Lori worked with us. Each tier was a different cake flavor and filling, while the icing on the cake was simply delicious! She also bakes a fresh top tier of the wedding cake at your 1 year anniversary so you don't have to keep a cake in the freezer for a year and eat a cake with touches of freezer burn! I find that fantastic! I also asked her, last minute, if she could make a personal sized cake for a guest who's birthday was on our wedding day, she was able to decorate the birthday cake beautifully and our guest was so suprised it made such a wonderful memory!

Wonderful lady to work with! Were able to taste all of the Cake flavors and frosting flavors before deciding, does a different flavor for each tier if you want.

Lori Martin baked our cake for our wedding when she was still with IGA (which is no more). The cake was not only gorgeous and precisely what I asked for, but it was delicious too. The price range was perfect and we were so pleased with the outcome. My younger niece was staying at the hotel where our reception was held and her 13th birthday was the day after the wedding. Lori had a special cake made for her and delivered to her room and it was beautiful as well!
