Our cake was beautiful and delicious. Carolyn was great at figuring out a beautiful cake that would feed all our guests and be within our budget. I am now trying to figure out an event that I could use as an excuse to get another delicious cake from Carolyn.

We discovered Carolyn at a friends wedding when we had 3 slices of her wedding cake! She makes by far the best tasting cakes around. She is so sweet to work with and everyone at our wedding raved about how delicious beautiful and the cake was! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding cake or a cake for any occasion!

Carolyn baked a lovely 3-tiered cake for my SF wedding in August. While the design I asked for was relatively simple compared to what her talent can come up with (see her impressive photo gallery on her website), the cake turned out visually just as I had asked and tasted just as delicious as I remembered at the tasting. She delivered a beautiful buttercream frosting that had just the softness and slight "rustic" look I asked for. The passion fruit cake layers were a huge hit with the guests, and the chocolate raspberry layer was perfection.

I really appreciated that Carolyn was quick to respond to several emails where I was toying with changing ideas for the look of the frosting. I also had a very specific idea in mind for cake pedestals that I had seen in a Martha Stewart magazine, and she helped me find someone who rented me the exact, very hard-to-find pedestals I was looking for. Carolyn is reliable, talented, and pleasant to work with. I'm very happy that I chose her to create our wedding cake.

My husband and I got married earlier this month and got our wedding cake from Carolyn Wong. Since we live in Atlanta and weren't able to make an extra trip out for taste testing, I had to rely on yelp reviews to help pick out a baker. Carolyn was one of our venue's (Swedenborgian Church) recommended bakers and I'm so happy I decided to get our cake from her. She was quick to communicate through email and the cake was exactly what I wanted. We got the lemon mousse and lemon curd with chiffon cake which was light and tangy and the chocolate cake with salted caramel mousse which was moist and decadent. Both were delicious. The cake was beautiful and decorated with fresh, seasonal flowers with a few extras for the table. I could not be happier with my experience with Carolyn Wong. She is very warm and professional and her cakes are both beautiful and tasty. I got so many complements. I thought the price was reasonable for the area. My only complaint is that she is on the other side of the country from where I live! Fortunately, she included a cake box for the top tier and I can look forward to that. I highly recommend Carolyn Wong Cakes for your wedding or any other special occasion.

Carolyn has an uncanny pleasant demeanor and attitude about her life and her work. You can tell that she truly loves what she does. That being said, she made one of the best cakes I have ever had in my life and I was fortunate to have it at my wedding. We had a great time creating the cake with her and her expertiese really shined through the entire time we worked with her. Her cake garnered rave reviews at the wedding with people begging to have a second or even third piece. I cannot reiterate enough how wonderful this woman is to work with and I would never recommend anyone else.

Carolyn's cakes are as delicious as they are beautiful. After sampling the many options she presented at our first meeting, we opted for the Blackberry Lime (fruity blackberry mousse studded with fresh organic blackberries, zesty lime mousse, and moist vanilla chiffon cake) and the Salted Caramel (rich devil's food cake filled with chocolate truffle cream, caramel mousse, and a hint of sea salt). She design a three-tiered cake that worked beautifully with our wedding colors, and she decorated the buttercream frosting with delicate green floral designs and a cascade of fresh, organic garden roses. We were absolutely delighted with the cake, and our guests were, too. Thank you, Carolyn!

Carolyn is one of the most talented bakers out there and anyone who has a Carolyn Wong cake LUCKY! First of all, taste was really important to me and of course I wanted my cake to look nice as well and sometimes you don't get that with wedding cake. Carolyn is a master of taste and presentation. She has lost of amazing flavors and we couldn't decide on one so we got the burnt caramel as one layer and the passion fruit as the smaller layers - amazing choices! They taste so incredible! Carolyn took the time to make our cake look special as well. She designed an appliqué that matched the lace on the bottom of my wedding dress. The cake was one of the most beautiful parts of our wedding. Carolyn is one of the sweetest people, so kind, patient and has lots of great ideas. I would give her 10 stars if I could!

For our wedding, we had a comfort food theme, so we decided to serve pie rather than cake for dessert. A friend of ours told us about Carolyn's delicious pies and so we ordered a few to try. One taste and we were sold! We had her bake several pies for our wedding and our guests absolutely loved them! The mouthwatering buttery crusts and fresh organic ingredients that she uses really make these pies special. You can tell a lot of love goes into them! We also found Carolyn to be just as sweet as the desserts she creates. She was very easy to work with and super responsive whenever we had questions or concerns.

We selected two cakes: cheesecake with chocolate ganache and carrot cake. Both were so delicious and moist. Many guests told us it was the best cake they'd ever eaten and unlike most weddings, there were only empty, licked clean plates on the tables afterwards.

Carolyn was great to work with. She is creative in her designs and we'll definitely go to her with future cake needs. She was willing to modify her recipes as needed to accommodate a picky groom as well.

We were very lucky to have found Carolyn Wong on Yelp. Our first impression of Carolyn was nothing but positive connection. Her bubbly personality, and delicious cake made it super easy for us to hire her as our baker. We were so happy that we chose her, because not only did we have good rapport, but she delivered our vision into a reality. During and after the wedding, our guests could not stop talking about our wedding cupcakes. Her cupcakes were a huge hit at the wedding.
