Cakes for Occasions has the most delicious wedding cupcakes around. Don't make any commitment to paying for any cupcakes until you at least try them. We looked far and wide for good cupcakes and found that they were either a. delicious but not really pretty and unwilling to deliver (that would be most places in Boston) or b. looked amazing but big disappointment when it came to the cake-to-cupcake translation. We were saved by Cakes for Occasions when we moved to North Shore and happened upon them. Their shop is gorgeous, and the selection will make your head spin. I swear the Lemon cupcake with lemon buttercream and lemon filling is one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten in my life...my husband loved the Opera cupcake, which was espresso-soaked chocolate with chocolate ganache filling and mocha buttercream...my mouth is watering just remembering them!
At the last minute we decided to get a small cake to cut for pictures, and it was a gorgeous, two-tiered red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting (the part we were cutting) with a black ribbon around the bottom with a cake broach, and a top layer of quilted fondant that held our glittery, blingy "B" cake topper. It photographed so elegantly and classic, with the black and white, with small touches of bling, and the red cake inside. Tasted just as beautiful as it looked. Katrina is the best and was so helpful after our multiple changes. Couldn't have asked for a better bakery!

Cakes for Occasions provided cupcakes and a grooms-cake for our wedding. Although we didn't get the chance to try any, we were told that the cupcakes were delicious, and the grooms-cake looked amazing! We got a cake to look like a truck my husband used to own, and it looked awesome. It even had minor details to make it look just like it. Highly recommended.

They took my vague vision of a cake and made it a masterpiece! It was beautiful!
The cake was delicious, too. Chocolate cake with passion fruit filling, it was mouthwatering. Can't wait to have it again on our one year anniversary, when they make us a new top layer!

We worked with Cakes for Occasions for our wedding cake and could not be happier with that choice. We ordered a 6 inch cake with 270 cupcakes of various flavors. We had about 120 guests and by the end of the reception had only 3 dozen cupcakes left. We held an after party at our house, and afterwards our cupcake count went down to 8. Guests are still commenting over a week later on how delicious the cake was and many have asked about the bakery and information regarding our flavor choices.

Working with the bakery was stress-free and wonderful from setting up our very first tasting to going over delivery details. I would very much suggest this bakery to others.

My husband and I are very eager to enjoy our anniversary cake from them next year!

Our experience with Cakes for Occasions was excellent. They worked closely with us to create a fantastic cake while also providing us options to help us stay within our budget. The staff was friendly and knowledgable and Christina even emailed us photos of different gold ribbons so we could pick our favorite! Both the pumpkin and white chocolate mocha were delicious and the cake was beautiful.

Cakes for Occasions created our wedding cake and it was GORGEOUS! Our guests raved about how delicious it was (three tiers, each a different flavor - the chocolate tuxedo was a HUGE hit!). The cake was simple and just the way we wanted it!

We met with the team at the shop for our tasting and were blown away at the first meeting by the professionalism, the quality and, of course, the cake! It is the most delicious cake either of us has ever eaten! We can't wait to have another reason to order through Cakes for Occasions - they truly are that good!

While we didn't have a big cake at our wedding, I did have a small cake brought out as a surprise for my husband. Cakes For Occasions did a great job with the cake! The Opera cake was delicious, and it was decorated just as I had requested. Everyone at Cakes for Occasions was also great to work with, and very helpful!

Cakes for Occasions was so easy to work with and our cake turned out exactly as requested. We had a wonderful tasting where we were able to sample every kind of cake offered. We chose 3 different flavors for our 3 layers and asked for the cake to look like a picture I found on Pinterest. The cake looked exactly like the picture and was delivered to our venue without any issues. Many guests remarked at how good the cake was and that they ate the whole slice which they very rarely do at weddings. I would definitely recommend using this bakery!

Cakes for Occasions not only makes beautiful cakes, but they are absolutely delicious too. We had a hard time narrowing our cake down to three flavors, but we were very happy with what we chose, and so were our guests. Our colors were hot pink and navy, and they even did pink velvet instead of red velvet for us! I sent them a picture of the design we wanted and it came out perfect. I highly recommend using Cakes for Occasions for your wedding cake! Or any cake for that matter...

I can't say enough about all the ladies at Cakes for Occasions....not only did they make a beautiful cake, but it was hands down the best thing I have ever eaten! I was hoping for leftovers of the cake, but it went so fast amongst the guests, there was none left! It was perfectly decorated, just the way I imagined and it tasted AMAZING!! All my guests were raving about the cake! I will certainly use these guys when looking for ANY cake in the future!

My husband and I are both zookeepers, and for our wedding we wanted a fun cake that represented us as a couple. Not only was the cake super delicious (white chocolate mousse is where it's at!), but the fondant cake toppers they made for us were spectacular! I am the primary trainer of snow leopards at our zoo, and my husband trains the arctic foxes, so our toppers were a snow leopard with a veil and an arctic fox with a yarmulke. It was too perfect!

Working with Cakes for Occasions was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! We had a small ceremony in Rockport and wanted to have cupcakes. We were working on a tight time schedule and they were helpful in helping us find the exact design and flavors we wanted. They also took extra care to prepare a gluten free cupcake for one of our guests, labeled it and had the venue put it aside in a special location to ensure the guest received it.

Finally, they made an AWESOME Guinness Groom's Cake for our rehearsal dinner that truly was a work of art!

Cakes for Occasions was a great find for my wedding cake. As a peanut and nut-free bakery, Cakes for Occasions is a blessing to bride who is allergic and wants to eat her cake on her wedding day!! If you don't have allergies, the bakery is still totally worth it. They worked with me to come up with a flavor I loved and a design to match my wedding. They are responsive, affordable, creative, professional, and most of all - delicious!!

Cakes for Occasions was great to work with when it came to our favors.
We provided them with spoons, jars, string and an idea.
They created a multi layered "jar cake" with fuchsia frosting that matched our wedding colors. Half were chocolate and half were vanilla, and they came out beautifully.
They assembled all of it for us, and we couldn't be more pleased with how they ended up.
They also created a small cake for my uncle. It was his birthday the day after the wedding and we surprised him with a cake. They drew a picture of a skiier on it, and it was perfect.

Cakes for Occasions is one of our definite go-to places when it comes to cakes, even more-so now!

My cake from Cakes for Occasions was including in the price at my venue, so I didn't get to shop around, but I don't think I could have made a better choice! The cake was both beautiful and delicious (different tiers had different cakes/fillings, because everything at the tasting was so good that we couldn't decide on just one combo). I know a lot of brides don't get to eat the cake, but I took a time out from dancing because I wanted a piece and it was well worth it : )

It was also awesome for my nut-allergic husband and bridesmaid that the whole bakery is nut-free!

We chose to do a tasting at Cakes for Occasions for the sole reason that they were a nut free bakery, and my sister, the maid of honor, is allergic to nuts. Since we wanted her to be able to eat the cake, we started our search for a bakery who could make us a nut free wedding cake. Cakes for Occasions was the first and only bakery that we did a cake tasting at. It was love at first taste! It was delicious and they had so many options for us to choose from. Our wedding cake was exactly what I had envisioned and we could not have been happier with how it turned out. Not only was it beautiful, it was also amazingly delicious. Thank you Cakes for Occasions for our gorgeous wedding cake!!!

Words cannot express how much I loved our cake!!! We provided them with a picture of a cake that looks similar to a tree and with some leaves. The replicated it exactly. Not only did it look beautiful, it tasted amazing!! Everyone at the wedding raved about the cake. We have two flavors, double chocolate raspberry and white chocolate raspberry. Amazing!!!

We cannot wait to get our anniversary cake! Instead of saving the top piece to freeze, you get a free cake on your anniversary. Smartest idea I ever heard of!

I loved the cake/cupcakes we got from them. I feel their prices were the best of everyones I was looking at. I recommend highly the red velvet. I felt the regular flavors (chocolate, vanilla etc) were a tad bit dry but with us getting lemon drop and red velvet our guests were very pleased. Will definitely use them again!

Cakes for Occasions did my Wedding Cake for my wedding in May. There cakes are amazing. I went to them about a year and half ago so they can do a friends babyshower cake. All I can say is yummy, the red velvet cake was delicious, and the ability to customize it was incredible. But My wedding cake was 3 tired i did marble for the bottom tears for guest and then a Vanilla Tier for me. Well all I have to say is that, that cake did not last the year its suppose to wait before you eat it. I know i broke "tradition" but I will definitely be calling cakes for occasions to do my one year cake! I choose buttercream because im not a fan of fondant , but looking at the pictures the buttercream is as smooth as the fondant. Not overly sugary and the cake was very moist. Very Happy about my Wedding Cake. If I had to make one suggestion is to maybe they should think about selling cake toppers in there store, monograms are becoming more popular.

thank you cakes for occasions

My new husband and I were married on 5/19/12 and had our reception at Groveland Fairways and we got our cake from Cakes for Occasions. The cake tasting was fun and we got to try the different fillings for the cake layers. We ended up choosing vanilla cake with chocolate mousse fillings – delicious! The design was a simple, round, three tier cake, with white buttercream frosting and purple frosting roses. Simple, elegant, classic. We loved it!

We tried two cake vendors during our wedding planning and Cakes for Occasions won by a mile on the strength of their buttercream alone :) Their cakes are pretty yummy too (they're flat out delicious if we're being honest), they have a gazillion different flavor options, are ridiculously well priced, and they have the nicest coordinators. My favorite part was they offer you a free cake on your 1 year anniversary so you don't have to save your top tier of your cake (and eat freezer burned cake). Our cake design was simple and beautiful (and came out exactly as we pictured it). Use them!

Love love love Cakes for Occasions! The cake tasting was fun and there were so many options! They were able to provide pictures to help us pick our design as well. My bridesmaids got my bridal shower cake from them as well and everyone was talking about how delicious it was for days! The wedding cake was perfect, beautiful, and delicious! Loved everything about it, and love that they are going to send us an anniversary cake (instead of freezing the top layer) so it will be fresh and amazing! Highly recommend Cakes for Occasions to anyone: birthdays, weddings, or just because.. they will surely not disappoint!

Jennifer at Cakes for Occasions was great to work with. It was a difficult decision to make during the cake tasting, because all the cakes were so good. Our cake on our wedding day was everything we wanted and more. It was beautiful and tasted delicious. We picked two flavors for our cake and both were equally delicious. Our guests went back for seconds so they could try both flavors. Can't wait for our one year anniversary cake to relive the moment- YUMMY!

While watching our wedding video this weekend, my husband and I laughed out loud at the cake cutting ceremony. Jason took one bite of the cake and said "Wow, that's delicious!" And it was! In addition to being absolutely delicious, the cake was beautiful. We ordered a vanilla sponge cake filled with strawberry-studded white chocolate mousse with vanilla butter cream frosting. I cannot wait until our first anniversary so we can eat this cake again! Thanks Jennifer!

Cakes for Occasions just made the cupcakes for my wedding. Sooo good! They originally agreed to make 350 cupcakes, and two weeks before the wedding, I asked them to add 70 cupcakes to the order, and Jennifer told me it was no problem at all. The day of the wedding, they delivered the cupcakes right on time and they looked georgous! And they tasted even better! I highly recommend Cakes for Occasions.

We actually got a coupon for a free 3 tiered wedding cake from Cakes for Occasions between our venue and caterer so it was great. We made a couple changes that were not included in the free cake, making the total cost of our cake a whopping $70! That cannot be beat! The cake was gorgeous and delicious.

All I have to say is my cake was DELICIOUS. Everyone commented how good it was! Our cake came from Cakes for Occasions through the Danversport Yacht Club (they actually order it for us), so I don't know how much it cost, but it must have been a reasonable price. When ordering it we were able to pick from a few styles and then customize it if we wanted - it was easy and the cake turned out beautifully! We had both white and chocolate cake and they were so good. I can't wait to dig into our cake topper on our 1 year anniversary!

Cakes for Occasions was great for our wedding. We had a small problem with our cake collapsing (didn't witness, but was told about it afterwards) and someone from the bakery came in with a big tub of frosting and fixed it right up. When we cut the cake, you couldn't tell there had been any problems. The cake was delicious! Marble with mocha frosting.
The one complaint I would have was that the tasting was disappointing, but because it was through the reception venue, we didn't have a choice. I went to my sister's wedding cake tasting and was served water along with the cake. Here they serve coffee which made it hard for me to distinguish the taste. Also, the tastings were slightly dry, but I think that was because we scheduled for the end of the night due to our work schedule.
Overall, I'm super happy with them and I'm really looking forward to the 1-yr anniversary cake.

Delicious and beautiful! That's pretty much all you're looking for in a wedding cake, right? Well I found that a lot of places can make a gorgeous cake - like a piece of art, but they didn't always taste that great. Cakes for Occasions gets it exactly right! I used them for my husband's surprise 30th birthday and for our wedding on April 9, 2011. Our cakes were creative and exactly what I wanted. And people couldn't believe how delicious they are. Taste the Opera Cake flavor and you'll be won over! Check out their Facebook page for some great pictures that their fans like me post! They are a great choice for your wedding or any other event!

OHHHH Cake for all Occasions - How do I love thee? Let me count the ways! One million times over for the most fabulous, beautiful, yummy wedding cake ever! And we had to travel a bit to find it - but you were so recommended by all that we could not resist. Wonderful to work with. They did exactly what I wanted and I could not have asked for more. Always open to feedback, ideas and professional. Answered all my questions and really made me comfortable.

According to the site the delivery was seemless, no problems, easy drop off and set up. Everyone at the wedding was raving about this cake...loved it. The taste was right on and exactly what we expected.

We had my cousins baby shower recently and they created the perfect cake for her as well. Cannot seem to go wrong - very unique and very yummy!

Highly recommend. THANKS!

When you go for a cake tasting at Cakes for Occasions you sit in a semi-private room and have time to sit and taste your cake in peace. The only bad thing is that there are too many amzing tasting cakes to choose from!

I interviewed 5 cakes vendors before deciding whom to choose. But, I have to be honest, in Cakes for Occasions had been first, instead of last, I would have had a hard time convincing myself to shop around to compare. I had one person trying to charge me double for a cake that definitely paled in comparison to the work Jennifer and her staff did for us. I got married 4 weeks ago now, and whenever I talked to anyone who attended, the first thing out of their mouth has been..."I loved your cake, wish I got more of that!"

I loved the taste the cake as well, but with all the raves I have gotten about it, I wish that I had more of an appetite that night and that I had taken more than a couple bites! Then the leftovers went home to my parents and brothers when I left for my honeymoon that night! But, all is not lost...Cakes for Occasions not only gives you cake on your one year anniversary, they BAKE YOU A NEW TOP! You don't have to eat stale and freezer-burnt leftovers!!!!

We chose Cakes for Occasions because they are a nut-free facility and we wanted to make sure all of our guests could enjoy the dessert at our wedding. Then we threw them a curveball and asked them to make pies instead of cakes. They happily obliged and made 16 of the most beautiful and delicious pies you've ever seen or tasted! Many of our guests commented on how they were skeptical about pie instead of cake, but were converted to pie lovers after just one bite. Lucky for us we had a few leftovers. I can't vouch for the wedding cake there, but the cupcakes are amazing so I can only imagine that a wedding cake from Cakes for Occasions would be heavenly.

I would recommend Cakes for Occasions to any bride. My sister, best friend, and myself all used them for our weddings and everything was perfect. The cake is absolutely delicious! The butter cream frosting is wonderful; it's not too sweet. The cake is light and delicious, and not heavy likes other cakes tend to be. Everyone I worked with was so wonderful and the cake tasting was great. I recommend that before brides go to the cake tasting, to look at the website and have an idea what type of cake they want. Another thing that I love about Cakes for Occasions is that they are a nut-free bakery. Both my sister and my husband's cousin are highly allergic to nuts. Not having to worry about their allergy on my wedding day was a plus!

The cake was to DIE for! It was by far the best wedding cake we have ever had and we've been to a lot of weddings recently.
We originally met them at our food tasting in February and the cake was so amazing we decided we had to meet with them one on one for a tasting. We met with Jennifer who was very helpful when discussing the size needed versus the amount of guests we had. She even helped us design the cake we envisioned and it looked beautiful on the day of!!!! During our final meeting she suggested we do a smaller cake based on our final number and we are so glad we did! We had a left overs but would have had so much more had she not said something. We had a three tiered cake with 3 flavors since they were all so delicious and we couldn't decide. We also ordered pastires for our guests who may not like or want cake and those were just as wonderful! The cake and pastries were a huge hit and the best part is that instead of taking home the top tier they will give us a free cake on our one year anniversary...belive me we look forward to that! Hands down our new favorite cake place!

I met with Jen for a tasting and upgraded at a very reasonable cost some of the flavors..I told her I wanted something simple but wanted to incorporate fresh flowers and my peacock themed..she worked with the florist (Audrey's) and produced such a beatiful cake. You can't go wrong with this place.

The whole process is really simple as they have a lot of design choices/ideas for you to pick from and a lot of really tasty cakes to sample.

There is a reason why this bakery is award winning! I received my cake as part of a package with Tavern on the Harbor, my reception venue. I was able to embellish the cake very slightly, but they did do some scrollwork to match my invites, and I paid a tiny bit extra to get little silver bead accents. The cake was so good, people could hardly believe it! Two weeks later, people are still asking me if I have any leftover cake and if they can have it!

On top of that, they offered me free one month anniversary cupcakes, and I will automatically be sent a small cake on your 1 year anniversary! I don't have to freeze anything!

The cake was beautiful and delicious. I am a sweet-freak and very very picky about my cakes and desserts...I LOVED MY CAKE!!!

My wedding was last month, and I keep receiving compliments on how gorgeous and tasty it was. The consultation was very imformative. We were not rushed in any way, and urged to sample several different kinds of cakes to be sure we were satisfied. We ended up adding fresh strawberries to each layer, which was perfect. It was a very hot evening, and the cake was light and satisfying. I can't wait to go back on our one-year anniversary for our complimentary cake!

As a bride with a SEVERE nut allergy, I initially assumed I wouldn't be able to have a wedding cake (so sad, because I LOVE cake!!). Then I found Cakes for Occasions, the most amazing nut free bakery in the world!! We chose the raspberry key lime, and it was the most delicious cake I ever had! My guests were still raving about our delicious cake two weeks after the wedding (seriously, I got emails about it!). I wuld definitely recommend Cakes for Occasions to anyone, they were so nice and easy to work with - if they weren't so expensive I'd probably be 20 lbs heavier from buying a cake there every week!

The cake tasting allows you to meet with someone who you will be working with up until your wedding so you can ask any questions you have at that time, which is nice. They are very good about responding to e-mails and answering any questions very professionally. They also had some delicious upgrade options, such as key lime flavored filling! The only downfall is that the entire store is nut free, so if you like nuts you're out of luck! I would recommend them.

If you could have seen our wedding cake...it was everything I wanted and more. We went to the store because we live in the area, but also because they had previously been on the Today Show on NBC, showcasing a cake I fell in love with. I didn't end up choosing that cake, only because I found one there I loved more. They were so easy to work with and did everything to my specifications, including the artwork on the cake. This may have even been the easiest part of the wedding planning! They are well known in the area, and for good reason. The cake was delicious, and actually remained so! We just celebrated our 3 month anniversary and decided to have some cake with my parents that they had frozen for us. We figured that after a year we might forget, so we thawed it out, and it was actually as delicious 3 months later as it was back in June! I would highly recommend Cakes for Occasions, no question about it.

Cakes for Occassions came to our rescue and exceeded our expectations! A week before our wedding (December 2,2006) our intended bakery sustained heavy damage from an explosion of a factory nearby. So, the day after Thanksgiving I frantically tried to find a bakery that could make us a cake on such short notice. Cakes for Occassions met with us, already knowing of the predicament and happily guided us through our cake options. We got to try all kinds of cakes but we chose chocolate with a butter cream frosting, delicious! We had a square 3-tier wedding cake with each tier decorated like a Christmas present with red ribbon and white chocolate snowflakes. They gave us a discount because of the situation and free delivery. On the day we could not have been happier! The cake was amazing and we got the leftovers. We even get a free cake on our first anniversary! Cakes for Occasions really delivered!

Because our wedding colors were midnight blue and silver with a pop of dark red (July 3rd) - we wanted blue and silver trim on the white cake frosting, but the cake itself to be red velvet cake. Not everyone can make a moist delicious red velvet cake. Cakes for Occasions made an amazingly moist cake and many guests said the frosting was the best they had ever had. The cake itself was lovely and decorated very tastefully. When we first went to the tasting we were quoted an old price, and when the contract was sent it had a higher price on it. When I pointed this out, they immediately gave us the originally quoted price. We have tried a few other items from their shop, and it is all delicious! They are professional, friendly and the best bakery around. Highly recommended.

Angela, the wedding coordinator, was awesome! She answered Ll my questions and gave me some great ideas. I did a grooms cake as a surprise for my husband and she was great wi coordinating it so he didn't find out. The cake and the cupcakes we had were delicious and looked beautiful! The only thing that made me nervous was that on the morning of the wedding I got a call asking if my cake delivery was going to a venue that wasn't mine! Talk about a scare first thing in the morning on your wedding day! But at least they called to confirm first! Also, I was told the delivery would not be until 3-4 pm (ceremony was at 6p) and when my event coordinator got to the venue at 2p the delivery was already there! But overalls the service and the cakes were fabulous!

We worked with the wedding coordinator Angela who was so sweet, professional and helpful. When you walk in to CFO, the smell of amazingness takes over and the decor is sweet, sassy, pink and sparkly! Love it!!

My now husband and I went with cupcakes that were very affordable compared to other bakeries and in general (compared to cakes) they looked and tasted AMAZING! We got 3 flavors with all coconut butter creme frosting and EVERYONE raved on how GREAT they tasted. We even went back the following Saturday to bring "our" cupcakes to a friends house for dinner.

I maybe bias, but I would say our guests would agree that Cakes For Occasions simply is the best! The pastry chefs make the most yummy and creative cakes/baked goods. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to anyone wanting to feel good and have a smile after one bite! Thanks to CFO for helping make our special day OH, SO SWEET!

I loved our wedding cake from Cakes for Occasions! It was so delicious and came out super cute. Our cake consultant was really helpful and their bakery in downtown Danvers is really inviting. We met with our consultant a few months before the wedding and discussed our ideas and what we were looking for. She was super flexible and had a lot of good ideas of her own on how she could make our vision come to life. We already had a basic cake included in our package from our reception hall, through Cakes for Occasions so we only had to pay for an upgrade fee. It was really affordable that way but I am not sure what the price would be if you were buying independently. For upgrading, we even get an anniversary cake on our first anniversary, which I thought was a really nice touch! I can't wait for our anniversary now to enjoy another cake from this place!

I loved my wedding cake made by Cakes for Occasions. The chocolate with chocolate moose and vanilla with a vanilla filling and a slight rasperry filling was heavenly! The cake was delievered on time and it was beautiful and fresh. Because our wedding day fell on the same day as one of my bridesmaids birthdays, we also had them make a special birthday cake which included an edible photo of our bridesmaid from when she was a baby. That cake was beautiful as well. They seem to be a very busy shop so it's not always easy to get ahold of them but they do call you back within a reasonable time frame. I would highly recommend Cakes for Occasions!

Ten days before our wedding, our cake baker backed out of making our cake. We were less than thrilled, and a little panic stricken - we needed a cake from a no nut bakery, as the groom is allergic to nuts. Finding a no nut bakery was hard enough the first time, but finding one willing to do a cake in 10 days? Cakes for Occasions was amazing. We came in the day after we called, enjoyed a wonderful tasting, and they did everything - without the blink of an eye. Their calm demeanor really helped us and they were reasonably priced. The only problem was all their flavors were delicious. Not only that, they were able to do the entire cake in buttercream frosting rather than fondant, which we don't care for.

Everyone at the wedding loved the cake - it was absolutely beautiful and was delicious! We could cut the cake without worrying that my husband would go into shock. Thank you Cakes for Occasions!

Also - they give you an anniversary cake so you don't have to freeze your top tier! We're looking forward to that as we didn't get to actually taste much of our cake.

The cake was simple yet beautiful on the outside! It was a little more complicated on the inside: We had the Opera cake as the middle tier, which is what we served first and people loved it. Someone even said that is was the best cake they've had at a wedding. The top and bottom layers were the regular vanilla buttercream flavor, which was the basic option. There was nothing wrong with it, but it was not popular at all, so we had to throw it away eventually. If I would do it all over again, I'd order a two tier Opera cake. It really is one of the best cakes ever!
The ladies of C4O are very nice, professional and everything was great in that regard.

Cakes for Occasions provided a beautiful and delicious wedding cake for us. They were very generous during the tasting and encouraged us to choose several flavors to try (I think we had 5). We chose the pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting on the inside and buttercream frosting on the outside, and would absolutely recommend this flavor to anyone who likes pumpkin cake. Unlike stereotypical wedding cake, the cake was really moist, and well complimented by the cream cheese frosting. The buttercream frosting was also impressively silky and fluffy. We are definitely looking forward to eating our (complimentary) anniversary cake! It felt strange to pay so much for a cake, but the prices at Cakes for Occasions were relatively reasonable, especially when compared to other cake places in the area. The only minor complaint would be some confusion in communication in trying to set up a final meeting via the phone.

Cakes for Occasions was the vendor that my venue uses for wedding cakes. We did want to go and try a few other bakeries around the area, but after we had our tasting, we never needed to visit other places. Angela lead our tasting and design meeting and I just wanted a very simple cake design-wise and she knew exactly what I was going for when I showed her a few pictures. We wanted fresh flowers to be the main attraction on the cake and we wanted the flavor of the frosting and the cake/filling to speak for itself. The cake turned out amazing and everyone raved about it! Thanks to Cakes for Occasions for making our wedding cake dreams come true, we'll see you in a year for our anniversary cake!

We got our wedding cake through Cakes For Occasions and they did a beautiful job!! The cake surpassed my expecations. We wanted a textured ombre cake and i showed Angela (the manager for the wedding cakes) pictures of what we wanted and they executed the cake beautifully, better than I imagined.
The cake not only looked beautiful but tasted amazing.
I also surprised my husband with a miniature Stay Puffed Marshmallow man peaking out from under the cake, I live in san diego so emailing back and forth with Angela trying to explain my vision, showed her a few pictures, they were able to make a sugar figure of the Stay Puffed peaking out from our wedding cake and my husband was surprised and LOVED IT! It came out awesome!!
In the beginning it took a little bit with phone calls and email to get in touch with Angela, but once I did speak with her explaining we lived in San Diego, she was super accommodating, we even had our cake tasting much earlier than normal brides do because of our situation (of distance). Even with our final meeting we were able to take care of that through e-mail because of the distance and it went beautifully. I'm super happy with Cakes for Occasions and with Angela's help in the wedding process. Not only a beautiful cake but tasted delicious!!

We got our wedding cake through Cakes for Occasions and we know 100% that we made the right decision. We got the spice cake with orange butter cream frosting. OMG it was heavenly! Moist and the frosting was just right!
When we went to our tasting we couldn't decide what flavor we wanted. They didn't have one of the flavors we wanted to try because it was a seasonal flavor. Our consultant offered to make us a couple cupcakes and to bring them to our venue food tasting (because she said that she would be there as a featured vendor). That service alone told us that she cared about us as customers. Even if we didn't like the flavor we knew that we would pick her for our cake designer. Just be aware that their cakes are priced per person so if you have a large number of people the price will be higher. And the cost goes up depending on the flavors of the cake and any design work.
Look at the menu ahead of time online. Don't be afraid to call ahead and ask about prices. Or if there is a seasonal cake you want to try, let then know and they will try to accommodate what you are looking for.
Thank you Cakes for Occasions and Jen and Angela for making our cake! It was delicious and I can't wait to get our top tier cake next year!

I am so glad we chose Cakes for Occasions! A fellow bride used them so we went for 2 tastings. Another plus is they are a nut-free bakery and I am very allergic to nuts so this was very important.

Our first tasting was really early in the process (over 6 mos before the wedding) but Jennifer was really helpful and we tasted lots of yummy flavors. We came back much closer to our wedding (like 2 mos!) and tried their new red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting. So delicious! Jennifer was really flexible on letting us choose whatever we wanted and made sure to understand why we chose to change items from our 1st meeting.

We ended up getting cupcakes for our wedding in 4 flavors - chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, and carrot cake - plus a cake for cutting (something like a strawberry shortcake flavor). They were all topped with white chocolate shells and starfish. We brought in cupcake wrappers and they placed the cupcakes in them for us. The cupcakes were delicious and everyone loved them.

The only reason for taking off some points was because
(1) we had agreed for white chocolate shells/starfish on the cake but they were not there. This may have had to do with confusion on the cake topper which we had discussed and agreed would be placed behind the white chocolate. Even though I brought in the toppers for them to see I guess they thought it would be in the way. Or they forgot.
(2) between our 1st mtg and 2nd mtg, they instituted a seperate delivery and set up fee (used to be 1 fee). The set up fee was something like $80 and while I willingly left the set up to them (less stres for me!), it turns out my venue could have easily placed the cupcakes on the platters. Also, either the venue or the bakery did not spread the cupcakes that were not plated on the cake table due to "lack of space" which is not true since my mom had to try and spread things out to fill the table!

All in all, just minor details - the cupcakes were delicious! I can't wait for our anniversary cake next year!

I was so excited to try wedding cake flavors and pick out a design that I got a bit carried away. I left with a receipt for a cake that I really couldn't afford. Jennifer talk me through option of creating a cake to remember without breaking the bank. She assured me that spending lots of money wasn't what was important, rather that we were satisfied with the product. As it turns out I was happier with the final outcome. Luckily Cakes for Occasions is incapable of baking a cake that isn't delicious. You can always count on a tasty dessert that the guest will be talking about. "Wow, it tastes as good as it looks!" I will return to Cakes for Occasions the next time a large event is taking place. They are true professionals.

Cakes for Occasions was a dream to do business with! I was recommended to them by my Venue (which was included) in the Venue contract, BUT to me- that didnt matter- even though the cake was included in my Venue- If I didnt like it, I would go with someone else.
Well, I didnt have to worry about that- the flavors at this Cake company was so amazingly good- I picked 3! ha Couldnt make up my mind! Initially, I went to my Venue's Food Tasting Appt (which was an important factor because Im from Mass,I live in Texas & was traveling for this Food Tasting in this small window of travel time) I say this to say that this was very important because where Cakes for Occasions were supposed to be at this Food Tasting,they were NOT... (due to a personal issue) they were absent from the Food Tasting,which left us very disappointed because I needed to taste it before ordering & going back to Tx.The Venue suggested that we stop by the Bakery & get to taste their samples before flying back & although this left us making another hour trip out to Danvers from Worcester the next day, we went-& Angela, who was in charge of ordering the Wedding Cakes was not there, BUT the owner Kelly came out, apologized for not being at the Venue the day before & sat me down with 6 pieces of cake & OMG I couldnt decide on a flavor, they were THAT GOOD! so good that although my free cake left me having to pay extra, I picked 3 layers of 3 diff kinds! Call me greedy but I wanted my guests to have options- I picked Red Velvet,Dulche De Leche (which were 2 big hits) & the Opera Cake with Choc Ganache in it as the top (which was my favorite)! Mmmm! just thinking about it! As far as how it looked? They did the exact style I wanted from a photo I sent them & it looked amazing! Angela was so great to work with & Kelly (the owner) was awesome!! She called me & addressed any concerns whenever Angela was not avail! My Guests are still raving about the Flavors!Another Plus? They give you a FREE anniversary cake!

I used Cakes for Occasions as my wedding cake baker because I have a nut allergy and knew that I would be safe if I went with them. We had our tasting and it went well - we picked Strawberry Vanilla Buttercream and Red Velvet - delish! Jennifer was our original sales person, who was awesome, but then towards the end, our go-to was someone named Angela - a new person that took on Jennifer's role. She was nice but not very responsive and actually changed one of our cake flavors by mistake. If I had not seen it in the contract before delivery, we woul have been very unhappy people! Anyway, the finished product came out exactly as envisioned and everyone loved it! Thanks Cakes for Occasions! :)

The cakes from Cakes for Occasions are delicious. Our cake was part of our wedding package at our reception site therefore we were limited in what we were able to choosefor the design of our cake as we were not willing to incur extra cost. Jennifer was fantastic to work with and provided us with a beautiful cake for our budget.

These guys were great! The cake is absolutely delicious -- it puts all those myths about all wedding cakes being dry and gross to shame. Our one complaint was that the design wasn't quite how we had described it -- we were pretty specific about which sides of the cake would have some design on it and what it would generally look like, and they made some modifications. It was still very pretty, but different than what we made clear we wanted. I would still highly recommend them!

Our wedding cake was amazing. The great thing about here also is you don't have to save the top of your wedding cake in a freezer to eat the following year. You get a new cake for your one year anniversary! (a much smaller version...lol). Grand Marnier cake with fresh strawberries and buttercream frosting....highly recommended. In fact my husband joked about not marrying me but marrying the lady who made our cake instead!

Our wedding cake was provided by our venue, but we still chose to purchase our cake from Cakes 4 Occasions. We did not need to spend the money, but we knew (from friends' weddings) how good their cake was! We were extremely pleased with our cake and there was not a single piece left! We were told to order for 2/3 of our wedding, but decided to order for the full number of guests, since we had seen the cake disappear in the past. Sure enough, every piece was eaten. My husband would not have even had a piece if it hadn't been for his groom's cake. Thankfully, our venue kept that aside for us, so we were able to enjoy it after the reception ended.

We did cookies shaped as bridal gowns and tuxedos as a favor. They were adorable, despite the fact that the black frosting turned some of the guests mouth black. Still a great favor, everyone loved them.

Included with our catering package was a choice of two bakeries. We had our appointment with Cakes for Occasions first and afterward cancelled the second appointment. That's how good their cake was!! We had to pay a little extra for our dark chocolate ganache frosting, but it was SO worth it! The cake was beautiful and so yummie!

And the best part - they send you a free cake top (in your flavors) on your one year anniversary. No freezer-burned cake for us!

The cakes are so very yummy!! A little on the expensive side but will work with you and your budget. The best part, that really sold me, was that they don't believe in freezing a cake to eat on your 1st wedding anniversary...better yet, they send you a brand new small cake of your choice!! Looking forward to eating this sweet treat with my honey in a few months...especially the Opera cake!!!!!!

We did a cupcake tower for our wedding and the cupcakes looked and tasted beautiful. When we arrived at the reception hall they had been delivered and set up perfectly. The strawberry shortcake cupcake is the best cupcake my husband and I have ever had. I recommend that to everyone! My only complaint is they said we would get about 2 per person because of the deal they had with our reception hall but it wasn't nearly that. Other than that we had the right flavors, they were on time, they looked great, and they tasted great! I loved them. If you do cupcakes, have to-go containers so people can bring them home after the reception

Cake was great, exactly as I wanted, but this vendor gave out my cell phone number to a reporter from the Boston Herald because we got married in the hurricane, and "we were one of the only couples not cancelling". This was not a phonecall I wanted to get when I was already freaking out about the hurricane and all my plans going down the tubes. Very unprofessional.

We were somewhat satisfied with the services provided by Cakes for Occasions. The custom wedding cake we ordered was gorgeous and made to our satisfaction, but the logistics involved with ordering it made me reconsider using this vendor again. They quoted us a price, we paid for the cake, and the price changed twice. Apparently the girl who took our order charged us for a different type of cake and it ended up costing an extra seventy dollars. We wouldn't have even known it was more money unless we had happened to stop by to order another cake for another event. They wouldn't deliver our wedding cake to our site since it was about 40 minutes away. It would be nice if they could at least offer that option and we were willing to pay. It made everything a lot more stressful. The cake was delicious and it was presented well, but the ordering process was confusing and time consuming.

We used Cakes for Occasions for our wedding cake at our reception in Salem, MA. Overall I give them a great review because our cake tasted AMAZING. We had the fresh strawberry vanilla buttercream but we tasted other flavors at our tasting and they were all great. We probably would have gone with the chocolate Opera cake because it was sooo good but I didn't want to risk getting chocolate on my dress. The only issues we had with them were when we called to pay off the final balance, it took several days to track down the event coordinator. Apparently she was the only person there authorized to talk to wedding clients, and it seemed like she was never there. I imagine weddings are a big part of their business so it just seems strange that no one else there could help us. The wedding cake was more expensive than other bakeries in the area but it tasted so good I think it was worth the extra investment :)

Cakes for Occasions was a wonderful bakery to work with. Our meeting with them made our decision easy. They sat down and talked over our options, worked with our budget, and most importantly made us a beautiful (and yummy) wedding cake. They don't give you the top of the cake to freeze and eat on your 1 year anniversary...so if you're the sentimental type, this may be bad news. But, the great news is that on your 1 year anniversary, they make you a fresh small cake just like your wedding cake!

the cake was amazing. We did have a huge quanity left over which was annoying because I paid for an extra sheet cake and did not use it, but it could have been the way it was cut. The company was very professional but for wedding cakes you only talk to one person and it is hard to get her to the phone. The cake was delivered on time to the reception with no issues.

We received a coupon for up to $550 for our cake from our caterer, Vinwood. We called Cakes 4 Occassions to set up an appointment and we told them about the coupon. We go to the appointment, and they are talking and talking about options and prices and tell us our cake will cost $750, we were stunned! We had to remind them about the coupon, and it seemed their attitude changed. All the artwork was more negotiable, price wise, and we felt slightly less important to them. We ended up paying about $200 extra for our cake, which was beautifully done and delicious. It was one layer lemon coconut and 2 layers chocolate with mocha buttercream. They did a fabulous job with it, but that initial meeting left us with a slightly bitter taste in our mouths.

The cake was through the Sheraton and we choose Cakes 4 Occasions. They let us design our own cake and stayed with the buttercream frosting and just choose chocolate and vanilla (we also had the choice of lemon and marble with the package). We did upgrade to the Strawberry Mousse filling that was so good. The decorated the cake perfectly and it was very tasty! They give a new cake on your first anniversary.

They did a great job making my cake, however they spelled my husbands name wrong which was a bit upsetting to me. Nothing I could do by the time i noticed it. I think they should pay more attention when putting someone's name on a cake, this was a piece of white chocolate on the front of our wedding cake. It's in pictures with his name spelled wrong. The cake did not taste as good as I thought It would, i heard great things about this place but I did not find it tasting any different than a stop and shop cake.

Delicious cake, very pretty. However, I had picked a simple design because I was told they could put my cake topper on top and I wanted that to be the focus. I showed up, and it was just sitting on the table next to the cake. Thank goodness my coordinator saved the day and used our flowers as decoration. Our anniversary cake was fantastic, I'll definitely go back to them for desserts... just a little disappointed in the appearance on the day of.

It was disappointing, for sure. The cake was burnt, which you could see once it was cut into slices. It was therefore dry. The icing was nothing special. Also, the 'superman' symbol was just eh. It didn't look very professional. I have actually made a cake with the same symbol that looked just as good. And considering the price, which was pretty high, I was definitely displeased. Had the wedding not taken my mind off of it, I would have called and It was disappointing, for sure. The cake was burnt, which you could see once it was cut into slices. It was therefore dry.

I went to a wedding shower that had used Cakes for Occasions for the cake. I loved it. I was going to go with my neighborhood bakery which was a proven hit, but went here and got a much better deal and the tasting was incredible. Over time, I found a design of a cake that I wanted, emailed it and had a conversation with one of the designers about it. Well, I am not sure how it ever looked because I was informed an hour and a half before my wedding that the cake showed up GREEN. Was it supposed to be green? No. I called, they came and fixed it. But the design was supposed to look like flower pots stacked on top of each other and it looked like a cake with message up frosting. I was never offered and kind of compensation about this. Would never recommend to anyone!

I came to Cakes of occasions for my wedding cake based on their wonderful reviews and recommendations. The cake tasting were delicious but the women in charge were short and not welcoming. We decided to go with them for our wedding because the cake was so good.

Three months after booking our cake order we were informed that the prices unexpectedly went up by a lot! and we were told that there was nothing we could do about it.

Upon receiving the cake at our wedding the decorations were extremely amateur, messy and dissatisfying. We paid so much for our cake and we ended up having to cover up their awful decorations with flowers in order to make the cake more pleasing to the eye. The cake was delicious but did not look very appetizing.

I would recommend going somewhere else.

The only good thing I can say is that the cup cakes and cake top tasted good. They are very hard to work with always playing phone tag. They showed up very late to set up cup cakes and couldn't set up the wrappers that I bought because they didn't have enough time. The tops of the cup cakes were not decorated the way I asked them to be. Overall very disappointing and I'm still playing phone tag to find out why and how to get back my cup cake wrappers. Not reliable!

I used Cakes 4 Occasions for my August wedding and they were awful!!! I had them make cupcakes and they used so much food coloring in the frosting that the frosting on the cupcakes was inedible! The wedding guests that did dare to eat them where walking around with pink and green stains on their faces. I contacted the store several times after my wedding to express my disappointment and even brought in some leftover cupcakes so that they could taste how Disgusting they were. But Kelly Delaney, the owner, could have cared less about my negative experience. She also has terrible customer service skills and thinks that if you are not a celebrity that you are not worth her time but she has no problem charging you like she would a celebrity. I have a couple of friends getting married next year who where at my wedding and they have already decided against using Cakes 4 Occasions due to my experience (and what they witnessed at my wedding) I wouldn't recommend Cakes 4 Occasions to anyone. There are plenty of other bakeries on the North Shore that not only have excellent tasting bakery items, but amazing customer service skills as well.
