We were SO SO happy with Carriage Trade Pastries. They were by far the best cake we tried while cake tasting, and it tasted just as amazing on our wedding. The chocolate ganache they make is out of this world. And the frosting they used, a blend of buttercream frosting and icing (they call it snow cream) is the perfect blend of sweet and creamy. Everybody was raving about it. My husband's family is full of huge cake lovers and not only did they love it for the wedding, but his sister has requested the same type of cake for her birthday this month :) As far as the design goes, I can't imagine there being a bakery more skilled. The texture of the frosting was perfect. What we were most impressed with were the sugar flowers. I originally wanted real flowers but decided to save some money and go with sugar, but we still showed her the picture of inspiration that had real flowers on it and asked her to do what she thought would look best in comparison to that. No joke, the sugar flowers looked REAL! They were absolutely gorgeous. My husband and I have them in our fridge still for no other reason than to be able to keep looking at them. The most detailed and beautiful sugar flowers I have ever seen, hands down. We can't say enough good things about this place. Oh, and to top it all off, they were considerably less expensive than almost all the other bakeries in the area that we looked at. I would have paid a lot more for that cake if I had to though! :)

Carriage Trade provided an excellent cake for my wedding! I had a white cake with raspberry mousse filling and snow something frosting. My guests LOVED it! Many people said it was the best wedding cake they've ever had.
It was also a great value and decorated perfectly. I couldn't have even envisioned it better!
The thing that I think is different about Carriage Trade compared to other bakeries is cake quality. I'm a frosting girl all the way, I could eat frosting plain, but even though I love frosting the cake needs to be good too. Every other bakery I tried the cake was dried out. When I went to Carriage Trade to cake test, I was immediately impressed at how moist and delicious the cake was.
Definitely use this bakery!!!

I needed a gluten-free cake due to having Celiac's disease, and Carriage Trade was the only vendor at a bridal show to have gluten-free samples, so right away they had me sold! My husband and I went there for a tasting, and she had prepared gluten-free samples of what we wanted and they were delicious. We did not want a large cake since we were also doing an icecream truck for our guests, so she accommodated us by having the bottom layer as a faux layer. She worked with our florist (Flowers by Nature) to have them put the sunflowers on our cake when it got to the reception place. The cake was delicious; my husband could not even tell it was a "gluten-free" cake, so we were very pleased. The detail that went into the design of the cake (painted edible seashells, gluten-free graham crackers as "sand", etc.) was amazing; it was so beautiful. I highly recommend this personable, thoughtful bakery and staff!

Carriage Trade pastries was fantastic to work with! We had such a great looking cake with all different flavors and every single one was delicious! I also had a vegan groom's cake made for some people with allergies to dairy products including eggs, and that cake was such a hit, not just with the vegans, but also with the regular crowd! Everything was perfect with the cake and working with Shandra to set this up. Thank you so much, Shandra and crew! Highly recommend and we'll be back for our other cake needs!

Our cake was delicious. We had two flavor - and both received rave reviews from our guests. We thought it tasted much better than the tasting, as well!! The owners are patient and friendly. Prices are less than area competitors without sacrificing great quality. My cake was decorated with ribbon, sugar flowers and buttercream frosting. I swear it looked like fondant but tasted much better!! The owner was prompt on my wedding day and brought the cake petastal which I brought to bakery and she offered to store in her shop and bring to reception. She built the cake at reception site and there it stood beautifully for hours until ready to be served.

I contacted Carriage Trade Pastries in less than 30 days of my wedding over the phone. As I reside in Atlanta, GA and was having a wedding in Orchard Park, NY and was not happy with the service I had received from my original baker. I was so impressed with the service from my initial phone call I was sure I had made the right decision. Shanda spent a great deal of time with me over the phone, to set up my cake order, I was not required to do anything else!! The price was great considering I got a beautifully designed 4 tier fondant cake with ribbon and fruit filling. When I arrived at my reception my cake was stunning, It was PERFECT!! Exactly, what I had wanted and it tasted superb, we got so many complements on how yummy and beautiful it was!!! I highly recommend!!

We decided to change our wedding cake vendor about two weeks before the wedding, and I'm so glad that Carriage Trade Pastries were so quick and helpful with our order! I have to say, their price is very fair and their quality is extremely impressive. Our wedding cupcake tower was so elegant and beautiful and our top cake was designed just the way we wanted. Not to mention, the cake tasted DELICIOUS. Entire transaction was very smooth and I highly recommend Carriage Trade Pastries to anyone!

The best tasting wedding cake! I was more concerned about how my cake tasted then how big it was and if you are like that this is the place to go. Carriage Trade will create exactly what you want and have it taste wonderful as well as look beautiful. I was even able to add sugar roses at minimal cost at the last minute when my florist came back with a really high estimate for real flowers for the cake. Great to work with and has become our go to bakery for special occasions!

Shandra came recommended to us from a friend and overall we were very happy with her services. At the cake tasting she was very professional, friendly, and accommodating. The cake was delicious and so much better than others we tried. We did a mix of the white cake with fresh fruit and white cake with a raspberry filling. People raved about the taste. My only complaint would be that the fondant ribbon appeared quite messy, and not up to par with the pictures we had seen at the tasting. I'm not overly picky, but it definitely stood out. Overall though the prices were extremely fair, she was great to work with, and it's the taste that counts in our book.

The cake tasted amazing, truly!! Unfortunately our cake fell on the floor, I'm not sure who was at fault but I'm not sure if she put any reinforcements in the cake, I can't say for sure. However, she did tell me (as well as many guests told us) the table they gave her to set it up on was quite wobbly & it was in a pretty high traffic area. Thank goodness we ordered a smaller "display" cake as well a sheet cake so there was still cake to serve. Also, the colors used were not what I had hoped for.
