Our guests loved the cake. Linda offers unique variations of cake flavors such as orange champagne and butterscotch. She doesn't normally offer the filling we wanted, but was able to accommodate when we asked. The cake was moist and delicious. The exterior was beautiful. The flowers were gorgeous and detailed and the colors were dead on. We will be going to her for an anniversary cake since we ate the top layer ;)

I met Linda at one of those overwhelming Bridal Expos. I remember loving how her cake tasted and talking to her about fondant. She educated me that not all fondant is the same. He cake was moist and the right amount of sweet. It stuck with me. Deep down I knew that I wanted Linda to make my wedding cake. She works out of her home, but has made it over to accommodate her business. My Husband and I went for a cake tasting which she didn't charge us for. We got to pick the cake, filling, and icing and fondant we wanted to taste. It was all so yummy. We decided that my mom needed to be part of the decision. So I came back with my mom and Linda gave us another free tasting. Not only that, but she was flexible with what she could do to help us stay in our budget. She has fondant and butter-cream designs. She is very talented and her sugar flowers are AMAZING. In the end we chose the white almond flavor with chocolate mouse and butter-cream icing. She did a cascade of sugar flower orchids. She even let my Husband and I do a different flavor for our top tier. We got so many rave reviews on how good it tasted and there was none left over for us to take home. (Which made me sad) I can't wait to defrost our top layer and eat it next year! Thanks Cakes by Linda, you were wonderful!

Linda's cake was amazing! We found Linda at a Bridal Expo at the DC Convention Center. We selected her US Capitol cake as my husband and I got engaged at the Capitol Dome. What could be more appropriate! We selected a three tiered cake with two chocolate tiers, one yellow cake tier and a chocolate mousse filling. The cake was incredibly beautiful and delicious to eat. We received many compliments that the cake was a perfect addition to our wedding! Linda was responsive to my questions throughout the process and delivered the cake on time. I highly recommend her for any cake needs - it was fantastic!!!

A WEDDING CAKE ARTISAN THAT DELIVERS! After meeting Ms. Linda of Cakes by Linda at a Bridal Expo and being given the opportunity to sample her numerous cake flavors and observe her designs, I knew I wanted to consider her for my wedding cake. Our wedding planners presented us to two other cake designers that were either ridiculously priced and/or questionably skilled cake artisan. We were not pleased with their vendor choices and requested they contact Cakes by Linda for a consult. From the first meeting in her living room she was professional, attentive, and courteous. She designed our cake based on our ideas and presented her estimate within a week. Cakes by Linda was paid in full 6 months prior to our wedding without hesitation or concern. Her reputation proceeds her. We didn’t have to worry about her showing up or following up with cake flavors, design changes, etc. She contacted us weeks prior to the wedding to confirm another cake tasting and to confirm design WITHOUT requesting additional money or intent to change (increase) our estimate. She was just as professional and sweet as she was months prior. Ms. Linda was one our few vendors that arrived on time and delivered to perfection. We never saw her creation until it was time to cut the cake, but many of our guests were already talking about “the cake” when we arrived at our reception. When I saw our cake…my jaw dropped….it was truly the highlight of the wedding for me. It was everything I wanted and more. The attention to detail and it was delectable. So many of our guests inquired on the designer and requested to take cake home. I highly recommend Cakes by Linda because she is professional and her designs are impeccable. She works with couples to achieve their dreams and is realistic with budgets. A small home business that delivers! Her contracts are not extensive, but her principles are lasting. She promises to deliver and she does!
