Rachael is one of the nicest vendors we worked with (she left a wedding card in our card basket - how sweet!), and she is a really talented baker. She offers unique flavors (we picked red velvet with mini chocolate chips and brown sugar cream cheese - YUM!). She was easy to work with and the cake she delivered was EXACTLY what I wanted. And the cake was delicious - people actually came up to me to tell me how great the cake was. If you book with Rachael, you are in good hands!

Rachel was a pleasure to work with for my wedding cake. She was responsive, enthusiastic, accommodating, and delightful. The cake was exactly what we wanted and she did a fantastic job helping make our vision for the cake come to life. And, even better, the cake was delicious. All of our guests commented on how tasty it was. I would absolutely recommend Cakes by Rachel to anyone. She did an amazing job.

Cakes by Rachael did an amazing job on our wedding cake! My fiancé and I loved the opportunity to taste some of Rachael's cake combinations during a meeting, and picked one that fit our wedding. From that point moving forward, Rachael was prompt in her responses, detail-oriented, and on top of it, all making sure that our cake arrived perfectly, looked exactly as we'd imagined, and tasted wonderful. Our guests are still giving us rave reviews on our Key Lime Cake and the beautiful design. Thanks Rachael!

Rachael was nice, professional and very talented when it came to making the cake for my wedding. The cake tasting was fun and the actual cake at the wedding was even better than I remembered it! I am not a cake person. I don't really like sweets and Rachael gave me options that were accommodating to that. The cake was beautiful too. It looked almost exactly like the picture we were shooting for. I was VERY pleased with everything.

Cakes by Rachael did both our wedding cake and our grooms cake. They were absolutely FANTASTIC! All of the flavors we chose (Lemon, Vanilla Bean, Cookies & Cream, and Red Velvet) were delicious! Everyone raved about how great the cake was. It has been almost two months since our wedding and our friends are still talking about the cake! Rachael was great to work with! She is so friendly and was very responsive to my emails. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a delicious cake that will leave you wanting more!

For my wedding, I had Rachael make 200 cupcakes and a groom's cake. She was so sweet at the tasting and more than willing to make anything I wanted work. She suggested I not put the cupcakes outside, as it was a warm day in May, but even accommodated this request by putting ice underneath. They looked and tasted amazing, and only 2 were left at that end of the night!! I would highly recommend Rachael...especially as she is very reasonably priced.

I hired Rachael to provide mini desserts to be displayed at my wedding during the coffee/cake hour. From the moment I contacted Rachael she was quick to respond and very professional! I wasn't quite sure what I wanted, but she helped us choose delicious desserts and provided us with samples of everything. The desserts turned out perfectly and were delicious! I was very happy :)

My husband and I agree that Cakes by Rachael was our favorite wedding vendor to work with. At our initial consult, Rachael listened to our ideas then offered suggestions based on what we wanted. We came up with a design and chose flavors with her help, but never felt pressured in our selection. The week of our wedding Rachael called to confirm everything (she is the only vendor that did that!). The day of our wedding was hot but everything help up beautifully. Rachael nicely arranged our cutting cake and cupcakes on her beautiful cake stands. We also got chocolate covered strawberries, cookies, and mini cannoli. Everything tasted great!

We absolutely loved Cakes by Rachael. Rachael was very sweet and professional. We had a cake tasting a few months before the wedding and everything was so good it was hard to decide. Rachael did exactly what we wanted and was even able to make a groom's cake for us. Everything was beautiful and delicious. I highly recommend her for wedding cake or cakes for all occasions. We had a combo of a small wedding cake and different flavors of cupcakes and it was perfect. Everything was beutifully decorated and displayed. Very happy- thank you!

Cakes by Rachel made my bridal shower cake (red velvet), rehearsal dinner cake (chocolate), and wedding cake (red velvet and vanilla). Each one was a huge hit, our guests were blown away by how beautiful they were...then they tasted them and were even more blown away by how delicious each was. My husband and I chose to work with Rachel not only because of her cakes, but we appreciated how positive, upbeat, and friendly she was when we met with her for a tasting. These are not the only cakes I have ordered from her, and everything has always been ready on time and just as lovely and delicious as the cakes for my wedding events. I strongly recommend Cakes by Rachel!

My husband and I just got married in May 2014 and Cakes By Rachael's made our wedding cake and 6 different mini deserts for our sweet table at our reception. Everything was amazing and just looked stunning. All of our guest raved about the desserts and cake for weeks after. It was everything we have ever dreamed of and we can not thank her and the staff enough. Not only did everything look and taste amazing-Rachael was extremely helpful through out the entire planning process and made it all stress-free. We Highly recommend her for any event!

Not only did everything look and taste amazing-Rachael was extremely helpful through out the entire planning process and made it all stress-free. We Highly recommend her for any event! Read less

Rachel is fantastic!! Our cake was DELICIOUS! A bunch of our guests have commented to us how good the cake was. And it was so pretty-it was exactly what we asked for. She is so sweet and was a real joy to work with. We decided the day before our rehearsal that we wanted cupcakes from her for the rehearsal dinner. It was no problem for her to whip them up on such short notice and she delivered them for us! I am trying to plan another party just to get another cake from her! You will not regret calling on cakes by Rachel for your wedding or any other special occasion.

Rachael's cakes are amazing! My guests wouldn't stop talking about how yummy the wedding cake was. One guest even said, I have never been to a wedding where the cake is so delicious! She was so easy to work with and made my husband and I incredibly comfortable during our cake tasting. I loved how she explained everything and then left us alone to really be able to talk about the cakes. She listened to what I wanted to cake to look like and then she sketch a drawing of it right there. I would recommend her to any bride!

So when choosing a cake to purchase, my spouse and I were very particular about texture, flavor, moist level, design, and everything under the sun.  So needless to say we were quite nervous when choosing a cake vendor for our wedding.  I have to say that we were floored at the quality of work that Rachael does.  We had a 4 tier cake with white fondant.  It was flavored with a mixture of strawberry layers and lemon layers.  Both of them were fascinating.  The strawberry had actually strawberries in the cake mix which added a pleasant taste and texture.  She was very flexible with us.  about 2 weeks before the wedding we changed our entire design and it wasn't a problem at all.  She even delivered and set up the cake herself which was a great testimonial to her personal character.  We could not have asked for a better cake and for better service.  Thank you Rachael for making our day special.  We will write another review when we eat the top tier on our 1 year anniversary which im sure will be just as delicious!  :-)

Rachael made not just one, but two cakes for our wedding. The brown sugar spice and chocolate ganache cakes were DELICIOUS! Not to mention the actual design of the cake, with ruffled tiers, beautiful sugar roses and an antique ivory/gold color was so stunning and was better than we could have imagined. Everyone complemented how it looked, but even more so how it tasted. People said they were going in for 2nds and 3rds of the cake and couldn't get enough. Thank you Rachael for being so sweet, professional and making the cake better than we could have imagined!

Rachael provided a free tasting and we selected three flavors for our wedding cake...lemon, carrot and chocolate each with different fillings. She worked from a picture and recreated it beautifully. The cake tasted SO delicious! I was able to try two flavors at the wedding and wish I had some leftover! She also did a specialty groom's cake for our rehearsal dinner which I was able to surprise my groom with. Everyone commented on how good it was. She was very affordable and the quality was great!

Cannot say enough good things about Rachel. Our wedding cake and groom's cake were delicious, beautiful, and an incredible deal! We went into the planning process thinking "cake is cake" so the choice was at the bottom of our priority list. After our tasting with Rachel, we completely changed our minds. Wow! Every kind (and there were many) was sooooo good. And we were able to pick several different combos for different layers, without the extra charges many bakers seemed to add to the price. Second, the cakes were stunning. We requested something a little different (gold edible beads brushed up the sides of the cake). Even though Rachel had never done one of these before, she said she was excited to try. Her enthusiasm gave us confidence so we went with it and it turned out perfectly! In addition, I ordered a surprise groom's cake--a basketball court to pay homage to my husband's favorite sport. Rachel not only made an identical replica of a court but she also put his team's emblem on it and fashioned handmade basketball hoops to stand on the cake (which was a unique s'more cake with graham cracker flavored cake and chocolate and marshmallow filling, yum!). We received a TON of compliments on both cakes. What was at the bottom of our priority list ended up being one of our favorite things of the whole day! Finally, I must mention that Rachel's prices can't be beat (seriously a fraction of what some of the other places quoted us). I would recommend her to any of my friends and family and would use Cakes by Rachel again in a heartbeat for any occasion...she's that good!!!!

I was so excited because so many bakeries said they could not design my cake or the cost was extremely high. Rachael's professionalism and bubbly personality is wonderful. She made me feel very special and I will definitely use her services again.

She does a wonderful job not only artistically but it tastes awesome too!! My favorite part of planning our wedding was definitely with Rachael (the tasting of course). Our one year anniversary is coming up soon and I cannot wait to eat our cake topper! (yes it will be gone in one day) Highly recommend any bride, or anyone who has a special occasion, to go with Rachael.

If you are having a wedding anywhere near Annapolis you need to book this bakery. You will get recommendations/vendor lists from your venue/USNA Chapel/hotel etc, but listen to a bride who went outside of the monopoly happening in Annapolis. (Everyone scratches eachothers back and prices are ridiculous everywhere but NOT here!) This is THE best quality/service/product you will get.
If you want to WOW anyone involved with your wedding planning process bring them to her version of a cake tasting! It was so amazing. After a weekend dragging my husband around, tasting cakes, food, seeing flowers etc my husband thought this was the most professional/efficient and certainly welcoming of our business.
If you want to WOW your wedding guests with moist perfect bakery items, book Rachel to do your cakes/cupcakes. She also makes the freezing/saving process for the top tier tradition very easy by giving you step by step instructions for saving your top layer for your 1 year anniversary. She included a personal note I received on my wedding day that was so thoughtful and made me realize she really values all of her clients/customers. We selected 4 cupcakes (because we couldn't pick our favorite flavor) for our wedding guests along with a two tier cutting cake. The cake was absolutely gorgeous and the cupcakes were so perfect- we knew we would have extra and they were still perfect the next day for our Wedding Brunch. I will be sure to recomend her to all of the USNA brides I know and also be sure to visit/book every time we are back in Annapolis again.

If you are having a wedding anywhere near Annapolis you need to book this bakery. You will get recommendations/vendor lists from your venue/USNA Chapel/hotel etc, but listen to a bride who went outside of the monopoly happening in Annapolis. (Everyone scratches eachothers back and prices are ridiculous everywhere but NOT here!) This is THE best quality/service/product you will get.
If you want to WOW anyone involved with your wedding planning process bring them to her version of a cake tasting! It was so amazing.

The cake and cupcakes that Rachael made for our wedding were SO good that my husband and I recently asked each other if we should get her to make us another wedding cake just so we can eat it again. And we only got married a month ago. I don't know how I'm going to wait another 11 months until our first anniversary to eat the cake that's in our freezer!! What's amazing about this is that my husband and I don't even really like sweets or cake - we thought about not even having a wedding cake for this reason! But when we first tasted Rachael's cupcakes we were immediately convinced otherwise.

Rachael also made and packed chocolate truffles for our guests - amazing.

The presentation/ set-up of our cake and cupcakes was perfect. She picked out a great cake topper for us and made cute signs to tell guests the different flavors of the cupcakes.

Rachael was also very enthusiastic and easy to work with. We changed our order multiple times and she was very flexible.

We absolutely recommend Cakes by Rachael for any occassion... I know just where to go if I ever need cupcakes or sweets for another occassion!!

Rachael did our wedding cake, we did cupcakes and a topper. She was wonderful to work with, easy and passionate about her cakes.
My guests raved about the cupcakes for weeks afterwards saying "That was the best icing I've ever had! It tastes like a cloud!" (not too sweet, not too dense)
She will do exactly what you want, and is super creative.
I can't recommend her enough! :)

All I can say is that I don't know if I've had one conversation with a guest at our wedding who did not tell me how delicious the cupcakes, tarts, and cake were from Cakes by Rachael. We literally did not have one item left at the end of the night. Based on the feedback, I don't know that any amount of her treats would have lasted....they were that good.

In addition to the mega-hit desserts, Rachael is extremely creative and talented when it comes to the assortment of options and ideas. The presentation at the dessert table was so impressive, that we'd be writing this review even if the food wasn't so amazing.

Without question, we recommend Cakes by Rachael.

Working with Rachael for our wedding cake was such a pleasure! My fiance worked with Rachael initially to get cost estimates and information about her services. She was always quick with responses and to answer his questions. She set up a tasting for us that was absolutely wonderful. We were both impressed with the variety of options and manner that she presented the tasting. We did not have an exact idea of what we wanted for our cake but did provide her pictures of our inspiration. She said that she had never done the style of icing that was shown in the pictures, but that she felt confident she could do it. When I finally saw the cake, moments before the ceremony, I was blown away by how amazing she had done. She somehow took those inspiration pictures and made exactly the cake we were envisioning...we got comments all night on how beautiful the cake was. She arrived at the wedding venue on time, placed the cake topper our wedding coordinator handed to her when she arrived, and also delivered a delicious cake. Not only is Rachael a cake artist and a true professional, she is also a joy to work with. It is obvious that she loves her job. She even sent us a note a few days before the wedding telling us how excited she was to make the cake for our special day, and left a note the day of the wedding thanking us for letting her be a part of our wedding. Her rates are very reasonable, her cakes are delicious, and she works well with other wedding vendors. I highly recommend her!!

I found Cakes by Rachael through Wedding Wire. We actually had a dessert buffet for the wedding, and all of the desserts were completely gone by the end of the night! It was nice because we got to do a tasting of all the items she offered for a dessert buffet as well. She also came up with a way to set up the dessert buffet which turned out beautiful! Like I said, everything was gone by the end of the night-- her desserts were a huge hit!

She made us extra flavors to come back and test after our initial tasting with no problem. The day of the wedding, set up was flawless and the cake was beautiful! It exceeded our expectations. Most importantly - her cake is DELICIOUS!! We received many compliments on the cake.

We were having different types of desserts at our daughters wedding and wanted a wedding cake for just 50. After contacting a number of other local bakers who either would'nt do a cake for 50, or wanted to add a sur charge due to the size, we found Rachael. She was wonderful from day 1, delivery & set up perfect, the cake stand beautiful and the cake was scrumptious. I have and will continue to recommend her and am using her again for our son's wedding rehearsal cake.

Her prices are so reasonable compared to most bakers in the Annapolis area and I was more than happy with the product. My cake was not just beautiful, but tasty. I enjoyed eating the leftovers! We got lots of compliments on our cake. Feel confident that Rachael will give you a fabulous cake, for a great price, exactly how you want it.

Rachel was the first baker I met with and the perfect choice for our wedding. I scheduled a tasting with my bridesmaids. When we arrived she had all of our tasting selections ready and laid out under little domes. The glass of water was a treat as well. Rachel was so flexible and offered multiple options for our layers. We also ordered the cutest bride and groom cakes pops (amazing). The entire process was effortless and a joy. Rachel is as sweet as she is talented. I made the perfect choice and would recommend her services to anyone looking to enjoy the wedding cake experience and have no worries about your requests. Thank you Rachel.

She checked in two or three times over the course of the four months and the cake looked fabulous on my wedding day. She had a lower cost than Sugar Bakers and was much more personable and REAL than my experience with them, too. I would absolutely recommend Rachael; a smart, young and impressive entrepreneur .

Rachael was absolutely amazing! She is the sweetest person to work with and she is extremely flexible and creative with ideas to make your wedding day feel special. I remember when I was first looking for a pastry chef. My family kept raving about how nice and friendly Rachael was. She actually listens to your ideas and does her best to recreate your vision. I don't really like cake, so the cupcakes and cake pop ideas were spectacular solutions. I got to choose three-four different flavors: red velvet, strawberry and lemon. I had sooo many compliments at the wedding. A lot of my guests went back for seconds...lol. They couldn't stop talking about how delicious the cupcakes were and how light they felt. I would definitely work w/ Rachael again.

Rachael was the most enthusiastic vendor we worked with! Not only was she extremely responsive in a timely manner, but she was always positive and excited to speak with us. Her energy was contagious and she always made me feel like a truly valued bride. She was up for anything-including 250 mini cupcakes AND an ice cream bar with toppings! Unfortunately, I did not get to have any contact with her the day of our wedding because I was so busy so I can't speak to how her set up or serving abilities were, but we had nothing but compliments on our cupcakes! I would highly recommend working with someone so sweet, positive, and excited for you on your most special day :)

If I ever have a special occasion and need I cake I will definantly will be going back to her. She responded quickly to all my questions and her cake tasting made it easy to decide.

Rachael did a wonderful job on our wedding cake. We knew that we didn't want fondant icing, which some of the other cake bakers we had considered were hesitant to do since the icing can be tricky to get just right, but Rachael was totally supportive and excited with the concepts that we talked about and made our cake perfectly to order. During our initinal tasting, we were going with a bit of an odd cake choice that most places don't offer (lavendar cake). She offered suggestions and samples of how it might be done and she even baked us a second sample cupcake after we had our initial tasting in order to get it just right since we wanted to add some lemon and add some earl grey flavor. It worked wonderfully. She had great suggestions on cheap vendors that she'd worked with in the past. She was punctual with the cake (even though we weren't quite ready for her!) and just fantastic overall. We do recommend!

I would highly recommend Cakes by Rachael. We met with Rachael to design our cutting cake. We were serving another cake to our guests, but wanted a gorgeous display cake. I brought Rachael a photo I had seen online of a cake with a beautiful sugar flower detail that cascaded down the cake. I was so excited to see our cake looked even better than the photo I provided her. Rachael was one of the sweetest and easiest people we met with during the entire wedding planning process. In addition, her cake was much more affordable and delicious than most other bakers we had spoken to. Use Rachael for your wedding! Great value, delicious cake, beautiful display and professionalism!

Rachael is amazing!! She is the most laid back baker I've ever met. When I called around every one was snippy with me and didn't want to give me what I was looking for. Rachael was so eager to do everything I asked without any questions. Everything was perfect. She met with us whenever we wanted. She's always got such a great attitude and is always happy. I couldn't have asked for someone easier to work with, with such a good price, and cake that was well worth what we paid. Everyone loved how it tasted! I also asked for a weird design and she was up for the challenge right away. I could go on and on, great woman! Id hire her over anyone else just because she was so nice.

Ordered a single round top tier cake and 3 different kinds of cupcakes for the wedding. The cupcakes looked and tastes amazing! Everyone loved the cupcakes. We asked for half the sugar of a traditional cake and it was just right for us. It was surprising how moist the cupcakes were the day after the wedding! They were extremely easy to work with and really took care of all the details. I would highly recommend this place for weddings or any kind of event!

Rachael was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end.

Rachael was able to provide us with a wedding cake and rehearsal dinner cake. The rehearsal dinner cake (as I was actually able to have more than a few bites!) was FANTASTIC! The cake was moist and tasted delicious, and the Battle of Hoth scene that she created using my husband's childhood toys was incredible. The photographer and family friend took tons of pictures just to capture the art of the scene, including using the raspberry filling as blood for the fallen. My husband is still over the moon over that rehearsal cake.

The wedding cake was very good as well. I was a little distracted, but the design was flawless. Many compliments were given to us and back to Rachael through this review by our family, friends and even the staff. You can't go wrong with Rachael's delightful delicacies, and she made a point of letting us know we were appreciated.

I used Rachael for my wedding on July 6th and the cake was so delicious. She was very knowledgeable and worked with me on different options due to the fact the my wedding was in the summer and it would be hot. She had lots of cake flavors to choose from and I got several compliments from the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake; that was absolutely amazing. I would definitely recommend her. She made it feel a lot more personal then other wedding cake companies I reached out to.

They forgot the strawberries on one layer which made us feel like we weren't her first priority but none of the guests noticed obviously. we received many complements and will definetley come back to her for other occasions!
