Our cake came out even better than we imagined. The layers were level, the ruffles were adorable, and the "ombre" design was perfect. Classic City Confections has a ton of talent and I would recommend to anyone. I loved the reliability of staying in contact. Updating us at a time when there was a million other things for us to plan and worry about; I never had to worry about the cake. The cake was also super moist and flavorful. Probably the best spice cake I've ever had. I know all the guests enjoyed this cake. My sister LOVED the fondant! Thank you for contributing to making our big day even more wonderful and sweet.

Ashley is absolutely amazing!! The cake is seriously the best cake I have ever eaten and both the bride's and groom's cakes were incredibly beautiful. She is so talented and insanely well priced. She was so easy to work with, she even contacted me a day after the wedding to get my deposit back for the cake stand.

Classic City Confections created the most amazing cakes for our wedding. The first was a three tiered cake with a cascade of sugar flowers. The flowers were the most beautiful I had ever seen and the tiers were constructed with grace and precision. Guests could not stop talking about the flowers!

The second cake was a portrait of the groom. A perfect shade of pink, little silver glasses made of fondant and bushy eyebrows. I had commissioned it as a surprise for my groom and it was a HUGE hit. Guests kept visiting the cake table to take pictures. It was a wonderful portrait: beautifully executed, comically capturing the groom's sweet features and very tasty. The cakes were, hands down, our favorite part of the wedding celebration. Thank you Classic City Confections!

I cannot say enough positive things about Ashley at Classic City Confections! She worked with me (the bride) every step of the way to ensure I had the exact cake I wanted for my wedding! She sent me at least 4 detailed sketches of 4 different ideas and spent a great deal of time making sure she understood exactly what I wanted! Not only was my cake gorgeous it tasted even better! One of the most common comment I heard at my wedding was "Wow, what a gorgeous cake!" Thank you, Ashley!

OH. MY. GOODNESS! What an AWESOME cake!! I can honestly say I've never had a better cake at a wedding. Ashley did BEAUTIFUL job decorating it - it was perfect! My daughter got married on literally the hottest day in 80 some odd years - and at night before Ashley had to make some changes so the cake would survive the heat. The cake was still beautiful - exactly what my daughter envisioned. It was the finishing touch on a beautiful dream wedding!

The cake turned out more beautiful that I ever could have imagined. Ashley gave me great ideas that I never thought of, and her creativity is equaled by her talent. When we forgot to get a cake topper, she was prepared and armed with flowers. My cake had three flavors, and each was delicious. I highly recommend Classic City Confections.

The cakes (bride's and groom's) were GORGEOUS and DELICIOUS. The price was extremely reasonable. Ashley arrived for set-up in ample time and decorated the bride's cake with fresh flowers somewhat on the spur-of-the-moment -- it looked beautiful. I recommend her without reservation!

Ashley at Classic City Confections was a dream to work with! I had some different ideas on what I wanted for my wedding cake and Ashley was extremely creative in helping come up with unique flavors and design. She was extremely hands-on and was in constant contact with me throughout the entire process. She even texted me a photo of the cake display while I was having my hair done on the wedding day -- what a nice added touch! She kept everything easy and stress-free.

The cakes were OUT OF THIS WORLD delicious. I had one guest tell me they had four slices! Prices are also extremely reasonable. In fact, I feel like the value of the goods received far exceeded what I paid for them.

Overall, I can't recommend Classic City Confections enough and will definitely be calling Ashley for upcoming events. I just can't get enough of that red velvet cake :)

Ashley did a fantastic job, creating a delicious and beautiful cake. I was even more impressed with her professionalism. A cake was the only detail I needed to be perfect during my wedding and I had searched for months. I was hoping to have a vegan cake, which made it even more difficult. All of the other vendors I tried had pretty but terrible tasting cakes, or could do vegan just as a sheet cake, or were extremely difficult to deal with. I was about to give up and just put out a few sheet cakes when I stumbled over Ashley's information online. When asked if she had experience with vegan baking, she replied, "Not much, but I'd like to learn more." She came to my home to discuss my ideas and returned with fabulous sample cupcakes, including homemade fruit fillings. On the actual wedding day, I had no worries about delivery or set-up, the cake looked great, and tasted amazing. Many people came up to me for months afterwards to say it was the best wedding cake they had ever had. The cake was also very reasonably priced and generously portioned.

Ashley made a wedding cake and a groom's cake for our wedding, and they were absolutely incredible! She was great to work with; responsive by email and really helpful in making sure the cakes came out like we wanted. They tasted amazing; many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding cake they'd ever had. Both cakes looked great too. Ashley delivered them to our venue and set them up for us. Her prices are reasonable, better than some others in the same area, and the service and product you get is great!

Ashley was such a talented lady! She made my cake not only look amazing, but it tasted so good also! I had a white cake with strawberry filling and the outside had the coolest design! She was always available when I had questions or concerns. She took care of everything on the wedding day, and her prices were very reasonable. Hire this woman or your wedding won't be the best it can be! She's amazing!

Ashley was by far the best and easiest vendor I worked with while planning my wedding! She listened closely to my ideas on what I wanted our wedding cake to look like, and created a perfect wedding cake that was exactly what I wanted. In addition to being beautiful, the cake was absolutely delicious, and our guests kept complimenting us on the cake long after the wedding! I highly recommend Ashley to anyone considering hiring her for your wedding day or any other event!

Ashley King was fantastic to work with: our cake turned out just like the picture we provided, if not better! Our guests are still raving about its quality and taste --- chocolate with white chocolate/ strawberry with white chocolate layers. Perfect for Sunday afternoon tea in May! She was accomodating and professional, always responding in a short time frame with answers to questions that I had! I will use her again for any parties or other special occasions we may need cakes for!

I absolutely loved working with Ashley. She created the most beautiful cake for our wedding, and it turned out to be even lovelier and better tasting than I'd hoped for. Several of the other vendors at our wedding commented that they'd never seen so much cake eaten at any wedding they'd ever worked! Ashley is incredibly professional and personable. I definitely recommend her!
