Michele's work speaks for itself!! Her cakes are DELICIOUS and look amazing! I had a special request for a cake she had never done before that involved placing antique rhinestone brooches and pins cascading down the side of the cake. Not only did she welcome the challenge of something new, she NAILED IT!!! I got so many compliments on how beautiful my cake was and of course this was only made better when my guests tasted it!!! Michele was willing to make each layer of my cake/filling a different flavor at no additional charge, and even though she didn't have the size/shape base that we needed for our cake, she was more than happy to order one for us to complete the look!! Her pricing is EXTREMELY reasonable and when you see/taste your finished product, you'll know she is worth every single cent. I would HIGHLY recommend her to others and will definitely call on her to help with any baking orders I have in the future. THANK YOU, MICHELE!!!! :)

We had an odd request for wedding cake; we wanted A cake with a tattoo design and Michele nailed it! We were so happy with it when we saw it. All our guests loved it and everyone enjoyed it. Our guests raved about the different flavors. Michele was easy to work with and the cake was very affordable. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family!

Michelle made our three-tiered wedding cake, and it was delicious! She has a great selection of flavors; everything we tasted was great. We went with a layer of red velvet, a layer of carrot cake, and a layer of cinnamon chip, all with buttercream icing. I wanted coral ombre for the color, and Michelle did a great job with that. Any time I emailed her with a question, she responded very quickly. She coordinated with the reception venue directly to set up her delivery time, so that was one less thing for us to worry about. We are very much looking forward to our free cake for our one-year anniversary

Along with the excitement and being so in love, being a bride can also be very stressful and nerve racking. My husband and I had a two year engagement and even though that sounds like a lot of time, we actually didn't start planning the details of the wedding until 6 months before the big day (yes I am a last minute
Lucy)! At that point, we had consultations at least once a week with all of the potential vendors and we were also extremely over whelmed. We were finally ready to pick out our cake and made an appointment with Michele swindell ( who came highly recommended by friends and family). We arrived with photos to give Michele an idea of our style and taste. I brought 3 different photos and told her I would love to incorporate all of the styles into one cake. She was very excited and said she knew exactly what she was going to do. After tasting the samples and seeing Michele's previous work, we were so excited to have her do our cake!! Michele was so accommodating, she knew how busy we were so she would send me emails every now and then with updates, asking me my thoughts about different cake details. I never had to lift a finger, most brides I spoke with had to pick up their own decorations and bring them to the baker, but Michele took care of everything! When we saw our ball room for the first time, the wedding cake was breath taking. Not only was it a masterpiece, but all of the guests were raving about how delicious it was! I would reccommend Michele to anyone, not only is she an amazing baker/ artist, but she is all about pleasing the bride and groom at a very affordable price!

Michele made us a 2-tier half moon cake with a cascade of cupcakes underneath. I loved the variety of flavors Michele offered and that we were able to offer our guests. But our favorite flavor was the Cinnamon Chip- it was delicious!!! I can't wait until our 1st anniversary- she also gives you a coupon for it so you can have a fresh cake instead of freezing your wedding cake.

I can't thank Michele enough for how much creativity and love went into our wedding cake. When I saw it for the first time I nearly started crying. It was just so perfect beyond words. Michele is highly professional, her rates are fantastic, she actually cares and is a true artist in the industry. If you have a cake idea that is creative, this chick is going to be able to make your dream cake become reality, and better than you could have dreamed! She did for me, I never could have imagined a more beautiful or more perfect cake. Thank you a million times over Michele, you helped to make my day perfect!

I was so happy with my wedding cake, it literally brought tears to my eyes. I have two dogs that i wanted encorperated into my cake and she hand sculpted them out of fondant for me. The detials were amazing, right down to the markings on each of my dogs. I have also heard from several of my guests that they too loved the cake, not only the taste but the appearance as well. I would highly recommend Cakes by Michele.

Let me start off by saying I'm not the hugest cake fan. It's a take it or leave it for me.

But oh my lord are Michele's cakes good. Good good. Even the frosting and fondant!

I did a 3-layer cake with a trail of fondant leaves down the side, which was gorgeous. We got cinnamon chip, red velvet, and spice as our layers, with an apple cobbler filling. Incredible!

Michele was also professional and on-time. I can't wait to eat our anniversary cake next year!

Michele was great to work with! She was able to take the pictures I sent her and create exactly what I wanted for a wedding cake. I couldn't have asked for anything better and her prices were very reasonable. Michele always got back to me very quickly and worked directly with my florist to create a cake topper made from flowers like I wanted. I would definitely recommend Cakes by Michele to other brides!

Michele was incredible. My husband and I were apprehensive about several different areas in planning our wedding, but the second we met Michele we felt very confident that she would make our cake beautiful and delicious! She met with us at the shop she uses in Camillus when we were in town one night (we live in Virginia), and had prepared free cake samples of several different flavors for us to try. We had an idea of what styles of cake we like but weren't completely sure what we wanted, so she had a book of a variety of cake designs ready to help us decide. We ended up going with a 3 tier cake with a different flavor on each tier. It was enough to serve around 130 and it was an amazing price (especially compared to others in the Syracuse area.) When we saw the cake on our wedding day, it was even more beautiful than we had hoped. We received so many nice comments about it all night. We 100% recommend her!

Michele was incredible. My husband and I were apprehensive about several different areas in planning our wedding, but the second we met Michele we felt very confident that she would make our cake beautiful and delicious! She met with us at the shop she uses in Camillus when we were in town one night (we live in Virginia), and had prepared free cake samples of several different flavors for us to try.

My husband and I went to Michele with a photo of a celebrity wedding cake we wanted our own version of. When we pulled up the picture on his phone Michele instantly put a picture of that exact same cake in front of us and we knew she was the baker for us. She assured us she loved our cake design and could make it for us so we began trying her samples. Her cake tastes amazing, originally my husband and I both thought we would only have one flavor of cake, but we went with three! Her vanilla, strawberry and red velvet were our favorites. The day of our wedding the cake looked exactly how we had envisioned it would look and it tasted amazing. Our guests were able to pick what flavor they wanted and I heard nothing but positive feedback for each flavor. Michele responded to me very quickly each time I contacted her and was professional and extremely kind. I would recommend her to other brides and grooms! Thank you Michele for making us the perfect wedding cake.

Michele did an amazing job and our cake looked exactly like the picture we showed her! We chose a fondant cake and it was absolutely delicious. I heard from my caterer that Michele took a lot of time setting up the cake and cake flowers to make sure it looked perfect (and it did!) She is wonderful to work with and I highly recommend her. -Kati & Grant

Cakes by Michele are amazing....absolutely amazing. I had her Cinnamonn Chip cake with buttercream frosting. It was incredibly moist, full of flavor, absolutely delicious...almost sinful and it wasn't even chocolate! Her design fit our wedding perfectly: simple, elegant, beautiful.

Communication was great...she asked questions about what we were planning with regard to the wedding (colors, theme, size, etc) so she could design and make a cake that made sense and matched the ambiance of the entire day. She also sent pictures with different ideas so I could give her a better idea of what I/we would like. She was professional, affordable, reliable and easy to work with. She even provides for no charge a "couples cake" version of the original cake for the one year anniversay :) I highly recommend!

Cakes by Michele was extremely kind and accommodating with every small change for my wedding. She was able to duplicate the artwork found in a photo with ease and change the colors to match our wedding. She provided a variety of cake flavors at the tasting to help you find your favorite. She also provided a coupon for a duplicate wedding cake at your one year anniversary. It's a great idea to have a cake that is actually fresh rather than freezer burnt. I'd highly recommend her services for your upcoming event.

We got many complements on all flavors and Michele far exceeded our expectations! Even when we forgot our cake topper, she was able to step in with sugar flowers and save the day. Thank you, Michele!

I was planning a destination wedding in Ithaca, New York while living in Texas. I found Cakes by Michele and decided to work with her over the phone to design and build my wedding cake. I was so glad I did! She was very helpful and professional in her consultations and made my cake look and taste exactly like I wanted. I had three tiers, each a different flavor. It was such a big hit with my guests, that every last piece of cake was eaten that night, even though I had ordered twice as much cake as I had guests!!

She also worked with my florist to obtain wedding flowers to affix to my cake and drove it all the way to Ithaca. A destination wedding is stressful enough without having to worry about the taste, design, placement, and timeliness of the cake. I'm glad I had Cakes by Michele.

Michele was a great person to deal with for such an important occasion! She listened to my ideas and put them to life! I was a little indecisive at first and she worked with me and took the time to understand what I wanted for my wedding. I am also a bit of a perfectionist and very visual person so I tend to notice the littlest details good and bad. I have heard horror stories about people who have had beautiful cakes from other vendors, but that they tasted awful. I was very pleased when we met and taste tested some cake flavors, they all tasted great! It was very hard to choose...The cake was perfect! In the end we were completley satisfied!!

Michele was professional and easy to work with and made sure that we got exactly what we wanted. Thank you Michele for helping to make the day so special for us. Sincerely, Patty Domres

People remembered the cake from our daughter's wedding two years ago and asked if we were going to order from the same place.

Michele is very professional and easy to work with. My daughter was quite specific on what she wanted and Michele was able to create it without a flaw.

I didn't have to a thing the day of wedding either. She went to the hall and set it up for me. My husband even said it was the best cake he had ever tasted. We had very little to bring home that night and that was gone in a couple days!!!!! If I could rate Michele higher than a 5, I would. Thank you for everything Michele!!!!!

She always responded quickly, it seemed she responded as soon as she received, it was great. We changed our cake flavors a couple of time and she was always understanding and accommodated our needs. Our cake was beautifully done just like we imagined. We also had many guest comment on how great the cake was and how moist it was.

Michele was absolutely wonderful to work with. My husband and I had a cake ordered through another company, and then the whole thing fell through, so we ended up needing a new cake vendor 5 days before our wedding. A friend recommended Michele and she came to meet me. She was not phased or flustered at all by the short notice and was able to produce exactly what we wanted. She made us three 3-d cakes that looked exactly like pumpkins, so much so that people didn't know what we were doing cutting into real pumpkins during our cake cutting! Michele was constantly in contact, professional, and so nice!

My husband and I got married in August of 2010 (a lot has happened since, including moving out-of-state--my apologies for getting this review out so late!). We had a hard time finding cakes that were more our style--unique. I came across Michele's website and was blown away by all of her past creations. We couldn't pick just one--so we ordered two! Instead of one cake in one design, we ordered two cakes in two different designs. They were both even more amazing in person than in the photos.

Besides how wonderful they were, Michele herself was wonderful and very helpful. She was very open to what we wanted and envisioned. At the time, we were in California and were planning our wedding long-distance, so we didn't taste the cakes until our wedding day. It was definitely worth the wait; they were delicious! Our guests couldn't get enough of them. We can't thank Michele enough for all her help and for her creative cakes; it meant a lot to us.

I would HIGHLY recommend Cakes by Michele as a vendor. She was professional, dependable, and created nothing short of a masterpiece of a cake for our wedding day. We had a beach-themed reception and she made our cake look like a sand castle. It was beautiful and all of our guests were impressed. We received so many compliments! Not only was the cake unique but it was the most delicious cake my husband and I had ever tasted! Additionally, I must mention that Michele also made 3 different cheesecakes for our rehearsal dinner and they were just as amazing. Needless to say, my husband and I know where we will be ordering all of our cakes from in the future. If you want to have one LESS thing to stress about for your wedding then I suggest that you give Michele a call. You can be confident that you will receive an exceptional product for a very reasonable price. Happy wedding planning! :)

I was very impressed with Michele. She is a great person to work with. We have a lot of fun picking out cakes with her. We have also ordered a baby shower and a baptizm cake from Michele.
