My family used to LOVE the cakes made by Carolyn (owner) and would use her business for every birthday and special occasion. When we found out she had a separate cake business solely for weddings and other occasions, we reached out to her immediately for our wedding. Carolyn is amazing! She came to our house for our cake tasting and gave us a variety of flavors to choose from and taste. All was delicious, but we narrowed it down to our favorites (per tier) and gave her an idea of what we wanted our cake to look like. She executed everything beautifully! The cake was absolutely delicious (our guests are still talking about it!) and she made the cake just look exquisite. Thank you so much, Carolyn, for the perfect wedding cake!

We did two cakes, one traditional wedding layered cake made of all cheesecake and a grooms cake which she made a replica of a pool table. They were both incredible and we had tons of compliments on how good they tasted. She did one in purple with zebra and detailed it with bling which was beautiful. The pool table was so detailed down to the pool balls and cues. I could not have pictured it better. She helped pull our ideas together at the first meeting and brought so many samples. We highly recommend her for any event!

I won't eat store bought cake. I simply won't. I prefer homemade cake and I was ready to have my mom make my wedding cake. Then I tried Cakes by Pink at a friends wedding. Oh my goodness! These are the best cakes you will have! I immediately met with Carolyn and she was extremely professional and accommodating. We custom designed my cake- made it of all different flavors and fillings and we even had enough in the budget to include a grooms cake once all was said and done! People loved the cake and it looked amazing. I couldn't believe it was MY wedding cake. I was overwhelmed by how it exceeded my expectations! The grooms cake was cheesecake, and I haven't had a better cheesecake in my life (and that includes all the New York cheescakes I've had). The cake and fillings she offers are outstanding. I can't recommend Carolyn and her business enough!!!

Can I just say, HOLY COW BATMAN THAT CHEESECAKE. Our cheesecake wedding cake is something we'll never forget. The only complaint I can make is that we didn't get to eat more of it at the actual reception!! =P That was not Carolyn's fault though, ha, we were just too damn busy. She makes DELICIOUS creamy cheesecake and our wedding cake was truly stunning. Looking at it, you wouldn't know it wasn't traditional cake. She gave us a top tier to keep for ourselves which is in our freezer and it's only been a month but we want it now! She came TO OUR HOME for the tasting. I will say, a few days prior to the wedding she was the only vendor that didn't "touch base" with us, but she reported she did send us an email (we didn't get it), but it might have been an honest mistake. It was slightly unnerving, but we touched base and everything was cool. And one bite of my heavenly white chocolate raspberry cheesecake made me forgot my tiny woes. I do highly recommend her if you want a cheesecake wedding cake. It was outstanding and nothing like anything else I've seen or had at a wedding.

Carolyn did an amazing job on our cake! It was exactly what I pictured! We had chocolate with ganache and white chocolate mousse on the bottom tier, Yellow cake with Strawberry mousse in the middle and key lime and raspberry cheesecake for the top tier and every bite was scrumptious! People are still talking about it! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Thank you Carolyn and Cakes by Pink for designing the perfect wedding cake! From our first tasting, our cake decision process and working with Carolyn was beyond enjoyable! Unable to decide on one flavor, Carolyn helped us design a perfect wedding cake with two of our favorites.... we even loved to have a key lime cheesecake flavor that our guests raved about for days! Also, Carolyn was very accommodating and helped design a cake based on my over decor vision and pictures I found. The cake was not only delicious, but it also looked stunning in our reception venue. I would recommend Carolyn and Cakes By Pink to any bride looking for a delicious and exquisitely designed wedding cake.

Carolyn made the most beautiful and delicious cake for my daughter's wedding day. She was extremely professional, coming to our house for the cake tasting and working with us to change the cake design a couple of times. The cake turned out just like our inspiration picture and was simply stunning. We received so many wonderful comments on how elegant it was and how good the different flavors tasted. She does an outstanding job and gives you the confidence that you will have everything turn out just how you want it.
Carolyn was a true pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this vendor.

BEST CAKE EVER! I had my heart set on cheesecake from the very beginning and everyone I went to told me that it was not possible. I did cake tastings at several different bakeries and everything was good but nothing was great. I still have dreams about Carolyn's cheesecake. Oh, and I must mention, cheesecake is the perfect cake for smashing in your new husband/wife's face. It doesn't crumble and go everywhere. My husband gave me a little cake smash on the nose (I had threatened him before hand) and the cheesecake just stuck right to me. No worries of crumbs or stains on the white dress! Carolyn made everything so easy. She brought samples to our home (during rush hour traffic, no less!) and created a cake that looked exactly like the picture I had shown her. She even delivered the cake to the venue so we didn't have to worry about a thing. I saved the top tier for our one year anniversary but I'm not sure it will last that long. I guess we'll just have to order a new one next year! Carolyn- you are wonderful and I am so thankful for all that you did.

Carolyn with Cakes by Pink was FANTASTIC!! For the sampling, she came to our house and brought to small cakes so that we could sample the different flavors. It was so hard to choose from all the different yummy ones!! We did a four tier cake, each with a different flavor. Unfortunately for me, the caterers at our venue did not slice the cake as I asked, and they just handed the cake slices out without asking which flavor the guest wanted, so we were left with a whole bunch of one flavor only left over and it was only flavor I got to try, but everyone really liked the flavors they had. We had a marble cake with chocolate mousse, a chocolate cake with raspberry mousse, a white cake with canoli filling, and then our top tier was a red velvet. I would definitely recommend!!
