Good value for a nice cake without an $800 price tag. We paid for three tiers at $1.75 per slice, and Stephanie added a fourth tier for us to take home. She provides toppers and stands at no additional fee. We requested pink fountain water, but it turned out orange, which clashed with our decor. The cake wasn't quite as nice as the picture we gave her, but we were still pretty happy with it.

What we weren't happy with was Stephanie's "bedside manner." She was nice to us, but very brash. At first it was little things like insisting that the dendrobium orchids I wanted on the cake were called "endomiriams." (Just google that. It's not a word.) But I don't know what inspired her to start complaining about "black people" stealing her cake toppers. We had a lot of discussions about whether we wanted to give her our business after that, and we did a lot of searching, but she was the only vendor we could afford. I feel it's important to warn people that she feels compelled to share racist comments with her clients.

I made a "groom's cake" that was gluten free and dairy free to accommodate 15 guests with special dietary needs. I dropped it off the morning of my wedding. When my mom showed up to the reception, my cake was nowhere to be found. Apparently Stephanie told the kitchen staff to take it away. This was extremely rude and a huge overstep. It is not her job to decide how OUR hall is set up. It was our decision to bring in another cake so that our guests with severe food allergies could have dessert too. I don't care if Stephanie didn't want her cake to share the spotlight--she had no right to remove mine.

Overall, we don't regret choosing Stephanie, since we did have a beautiful cake at a price we were willing to pay. You don't have to interact with your baker a lot compared to other vendors, and that makes it tolerable to work with her. But we weren't totally happy and wouldn't recommend her if you can afford someone else.

She had one of the best prices that I have ever seen. She made a beautiful cake for us. Everyone said it was delicious. She was very flexible on the details that we wanted for our cake. The only two negative things is that she delivered the cake on the day later than was expected. She can be hard to get a hold of at times too.

Stephanie provided great examples and was easy to work with. There were no hidden costs with her and she provided a lot of the details for the cake that would be extra at other places. The cake tasted amazing and my aunt who doesn't eat cake loved it. I would go back to her to have her make another cake for me if I could find a reason! We are talking about having her make a sample cake again for our 1 year anniversary since we choose not to save our top layer.

Cakes are outrageous, but I found Stephanie to be EXTREMELY reasonable. We went to her house, she showed us pictures of cakes she had made, she gave us samples to try, and went over all the details. She was very nice. I would recommend her. She will also drop off the cake at the venue for you.

Cakes by Stephanie offered a delicious cake with a very affordable price. We did a small cake with cupcakes to avoid a cutting charge...Stephanie offered several suggestions to make our vision come true. The cake table was decorated beautifully and the cake and cupcakes were delectable. The only thing I wish was that I actually got a whole slice of.cake not just one bite at the reception and the hall served the.entire.two-tier cake--guess it gives me an excuse to have.Stephanie make us a fresh anniversary cake!!!

I hired Stephanie to make my wedding cake and groom's cake. She was initially hard to get a hold of, but once we had a tasting, the cakes were delicious so we decided to go with her. We picked out a lovely upside down c scroll design and for the groom's cake I showed her a picture of a cake shaped like a Nintendo NES (consol with 2 controllers on top). She requested I email the picture to her which I did. Months go by and about 1 week before the wedding, she contacted me about the final payment and when I asked about the groom's cake and a special gluten free cake I requested for a guest, she had no idea what I was talking about. We put her final payment in the mail and I emailed her the same Nintendo cake picture I had emailed her the first time and had shown her at the initial consultation.

On the wedding day, my husband and I saw the cakes after she had left. The groom's cake I was very specific about was only a pair of poorly done controllers and no consol and our cake looked quite sloppy. The upside down c scrolls I was looking forward to were sloppy arches. And before we cut the cake, a crack formed in the bottom tier and the cake started to lean forward. I couldn't believe what a horrible job she had done. The cakes tasted delicious, but it looked like something I could've just done myself and saved the money.

Yesterday, I emailed Stephanie only mentioning my disappointment in the groom's cake hoping she'd offer a refund seeing as I made my wishes well known. She responded today only saying that she didn't know I wanted the consol (which I specified several times) and pretty much blew me off without even offering a refund. Overall, I very much regret hiring her and I wouldn't refer my worst enemy to her.

If you are looking for reasonably priced cakes that taste delicious, Cakes by Stephanie is best choice. Stephanie bakes out of her home enabling her to provide very competitive prices for her cakes (about 1.60 per slice). Not only is the price unbeatable but the cake tasted delicious. On out wedding day the cake was delivered just as we ordered it. It was a three tier cake with hearts and dots on alternating layers with purple ribbon at the base of each tier and patch of fall colored leaves on the side. It looked well done and tasted delicious! When Stephanie sent our contract there were several mistakes regarding name, address, and number of guests, but she corrected them immediately. She was also difficult to get a hold of via phone and email, but eventually she would return calls. She was much more readily available as the wedding date got closer. I would describe myself as a pretty laid back bride so the slight difficulties in communication and lack of attention to detail on the contract did not ruin my experience with Cakes by Stephanie because in the end she created a beautiful cake just as we wanted it that tasted fantastic.

Stephanie was difficult to get in touch with, because I preferred email. I never received my contract, but also moved in the middle of wedding planning (but did not receive it with forwarded mail either). We were worried up until the last few weeks when we got in touch and met with her to finalize every thing. She is very nice and makes a delicious cake. We asked for a grooms cake to look like a tux, which really didn't turn out well decoration wise but still tasted delicious. If you use her- just be sure to call her and make sure you have your contract to avoid unnecessary worry.
