Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!

Honored to have won many awards, and proud to have worked with some of the best in the business (was chosen by the David Tutera team to do a wedding cake for a client!), and some of the best hotels in Pittsburgh, I pride myself in creating every couple's dream wedding cake. From start to finish, I work with you- one on one.

Known for having a "smaller" bakery, I like to invest more time into creating each cake I design.

Prices start at $3 per serving, which includes the cake and filling of your choice. Deluxe flavors are also offered, pricing can be found on my website (www.cakesbytammy.com). Couples are welcome to choose up to 4 different flavors of cake/filling, at no extra cost. Very reasonable delivery fee's!

Please contact me today to set up a tasting/meeting! I look forward to hearing from you! Read less

Cake by Tammy provided my cake at the Sheraton Pittsburgh Airport on 4/9/2016 for my wedding. It was great. It was exactly what I wanted. She had so many choices of cake. Sad to say there was none left to take home. Everyone ate it. I would have Tammy do my wedding cake again.

A few days before the wedding she emailed me that the sugar flowers we had requested hadn't come in time and wanted to know if I wanted to pick a different sugar flower or if I wanted her to try to find artificial flowers that would more closely match. I asked her to send me some pictures of my options so I could choose and she never got back to me, so I really wasn't sure what to expect the day of. Tammy told me she would be dropping off our cake between 8:30-9 at our venue. We were getting ready at the venue, so when she wasn't there by around 11, I tried calling her but the number I had was her shop number, not her cell phone. She finally showed up around 11:30-12 and told me not to come look at the cake until she had a chance to put all the finishing touches on. She never came to tell me she was done, she just left. My bridesmaids went to check to see if she was done yet after about 45 minutes, only to find that she had put the wrong letter on our cake! We had asked her to put an H on our cake, and she had sent us a sketch with an H on it. However, the day of the wedding she left us a cake with an M on it, which she sat on top of a cake stand that said Mr. and Mrs. Huff! One of my bridesmaids took the M off and did her best to turn it into an H because we weren't able to get through to Tammy since we only had a shop number. My sister emailed her, and she got that and came back. She fixed it up by making it look like there was lace around the H to cover up the imprint of the M. She makes a "replica" of your top layer for you to keep for your one year anniversary. We asked for our top layer to be marble with peanut butter filling because this is what we wanted for our anniversary. However, our box for our replica top says it's red velvet and has my maiden name listed as Patterson instead of Peterson. It's a shame she was so careless because the cake was really pretty and delicious!

Cakes By Tammy responded with the following comments:

Oh, Ashley.
I wish I could dispute everything you posted, but alas, it's all true.
My day, as most delivery days are planned, was suppose to be a good one! Delivery with another venue was messed up due to lateness with linens, which in turn put me behind.
I have zero excuse about the mess up with the "H/M". As I told you when I came back to correct it, I believe I did it because the original picture had an "M" on it, and I was looking at that. It was a stupid mistake, I totally admit it. And yes, it's even worse that your last name was right on the box that I put the cake on! My husband is still making fun of me for this, after showing him the pictures.

In the end, I'm happy you loved the final look and taste. I screwed up. I own it, and I absolutely apologize for it.
I am human and I do make mistakes. But I also try to fix them when I do, so I was glad you did, in the end, love your cake.

I would be happy to provide you with a marble/peanut butter filling cake! Please contact me and I will make this up to you.

Tammy was my favorite vendor of my entire wedding and I cannot sing her praises enough!! As an out of town bride, Tammy worked with me to allow me to taste some of her cakes, even meeting me at night at a random hotel in Robinson to drop them off to me. We had a separate wedding cake from Prantl's for a morning brunch on the wedding day (Tammy's was for our evening reception) that I expected to be my favorite. However, at the evening reception, I was blown away!! We had the marble cake with oreo buttercream, which I expected to be good but it was by far my favorite cake I've ever had. I was also incredibly indecisive about how I wanted it decorated and what color I wanted it. She really helped me come up with a design and color scheme and I can't thank her enough. Her cake was gorgeous. I give her my highest recommendation - Tammy is AMAZING!!!

Tammy was great throughout the entire process! She works out of her house, so she met us at a local hotel to discuss the cake. From the beginning, she made the entire process convenient for us! Prior to meeting, she had us pick two cake/frosting flavor combinations, and she made us two complimentary 6-inch mini cakes to try the two flavors. It was great to have these samples, because we were able to take them home and share them with our families and include them in the process! We knew we loved Tammy but still weren't positive which flavor we wanted, so I contacted Tammy to ask if we could try a couple more flavors, and I was able to purchase two more small cakes to try! She met me again at a location close to our home to give them to me, too. Once we chose our flavors (marble with buttercream and raspberry swirl with buttercream), I had a lot of ideas for designs saved on Pinterest and Tammy was so receptive to all of my ideas. She ended up making me a 3-tier ombre style cake in my wedding colors, going from teal at the top down to a rich purple at the bottom. The cake topper that I purchased on Etsy went perfectly with the cake, and I loved how great she was with taking my ideas and making them a reality! The cake was delicious at the wedding, of course, and everyone loved it. Her prices were much more reasonable than some of the large bakeries in the area that we visited, and her personal, attentive service was worth every penny. She works out of northeastern Ohio but was very happy to meet us outside of Pittsburgh! I definitely recommend Tammy to everyone in the eastern Ohio/western Pennsylvania areas looking for quick, personalized service and delicious cakes for their big day!

LOVE LOVE LOVED Tammy! She did a fantastic job. We met with her once before the wedding and she listened to all of our ideas and gave some of her own. She was super friendly and very easy to work with. She was willing to customize the icing, cake and filling to be exactly what we wanted. A couple of months before the wedding she sent me some drawings she had come up with and I gave her a few ideas and everything was executed perfectly. The cake was gorgeous and tasted fantastic. We got a ton of compliments on how it looked and tasted! Would absolutely recommend her to anyone. She is friendly, attentive and does a great job.

Working with Tammy was an absolute pleasure! She is passionate about her work and genuinely excited to be doing your wedding cake. Starting with the flavor, Tammy's cakes are delicious! You have your choose of many flavors, as well as three levels of buttercream depending on how sweet you want it. (We couldn't be more thrilled with our choice of chocolate cake & amaretto filling!) The quality of cake and design really make Tammy stand out from other bakeries. Unlike most bakeries that ask you to bring a photo in and then nickel and dime you for each element, Tammy works with you to create a one-of-a kind design. After meeting with you, she goes back to the drawing board to come up with various sketches of your potential cake. She doesn't try to nickel and dime you for silly things like the shape of your cake, and the finished product is absolutely perfect!
