Classic Bakery created an amazing three tiered cake for our wedding at Ceresville Mansion. We ordered the yellow cake/chocolate mousse, chocolate cake/chocolate mousse, and the banana cake/banana filling tiers with butter cream icing, and the taste was superb. It was beautifully decorated with our Lladro Love Nest cake topper and placed at the center of the room with pin spot lights. The brilliant bright butter cream combined with the bright pin lighting literally made the cake glow. It was gorgeous!

This was the most delicious cake my husband and I have ever eaten. The staff was very helpful and informative. Our cake looked exactly how I had described the design to the baker. They were accommodating to the changes we made in short notice and our order included a free anniversary cake. All of our guests agreed that this was the best wedding cake.

I want to give Classic a 5 but I can't because my cupcakes - while delicious - did not look the way I expected them to. I picked up a sample before the wedding and then called them to say I'd like more frosting on them. The baker agreed to do that (said he knew just what I was asking for) and then on the big day they showed up with just a dollop of frosting on the top. I wanted it end-to-end, but it was just a splash in the middle. I thought they looked bad, but I think this could've been corrected if I'd re-confirmed by asking for an additional sample. Honestly, I think they forgot to write it down on my order or just missed it when they made the cupcakes - their order-taking system is antiquated, a bunch of scribble on paper receipts. When you make a change, they sribble more notes, it's no wonder they missed the "more frosting" note (if they even wrote it down, I don't know since I made the request by phone). Now, the 6" CAKE we got along with the cupcakes (for cake-cutting) was amazing. It was tiffany blue-to-whte- ombre rosebuds top to bottom and it was beautiful and delicious. My takeaway: I'd recommend this bakery for sure (and have already used them again since), but just be sure to over-communicate because they are very, very busy.

Classic Bakery did our wedding cake/cupcakes. They were amazing from what I heard. All the cupcakes were gone! Everything was made how we wanted it. Just a few issues with the tastings before the wedding but other than that, great experience.

Classic Bakery makes nice cake but nothing extraordinary to offset the amount they charge. The taste of the cake is ok. The design of the cake was nothing extravagant either. It is nice that they offer different flavors however it didn't taste that much different. We ordered Jamaican rum and tiramisu but couldn't really taste any difference from yellow cake and the tiramisu was too strong that it overpowered a tiramisu taste.

Aside from the technicals, delivery was also a nightmare. On the day of the wedding they were an hour late. The deliverer was also rude.

Areen was a pleasure to work with and he was very responsive to the feedback we gave. However, based on taste, design and price it's not worth us going back. Sorry to say this was the first and last time we do business with them.

Our wedding cake came out perfect. Very moist, full of flavor and designed beautifully. We tried many cakes, and most were dry and not as tasteful. The cake from Classic was so fresh and tasteful, designed and created just the way we wanted.

We had a endless selection of ingredients for the cake. We went with a fruit cream and mocha split cake. All our guests raved about our cake. Beautiful and elegantly designed and a very reasonable price.

Highly recommend Classic Bakery for all bakery needs.

Classic Bakery made our wedding cake in August 2014. The cake was delicious and was delivered to our venue with no problem. There were a couple of small issues: our cake started to melt on the top throughout the reception. This could have been a venue issue, however our cake was kept indoors and in an air conditioned hallway so I don't think this should have happened. The monogram on our cake wasn't exactly what we wanted and looked a little messy but that didn't bother us too much. We got compliments on how delicious the cake was and we enjoyed working with the owners, who worked with us to create a beautiful cake within our budget. I do think it was a bit more expensive than comparable bakeries in the area, but not enough of a difference to make us look elsewhere. I would definitely recommend Classic Bakery and we'll be returning for future special occasion cakes/treats!
