We opted for a cupcake tower for our wedding in lieu of a cake. It was absolutely stunning and elegant. My husband and I went for a tasting on a Saturday morning and roughly 20 flavors of cake were presented to us. The hardest part about working with Custom Cake Design is that, all of the flavors were so delicious, it made it difficult to decide on just three. All of my guests raved about the cupcakes. We ordered 120 for 88 guests and there were only a few left over at the end of the wedding. Overall, they were delicious, beautiful, and reasonably priced. I highly recommend Custom Cake Design for any special event.

This place is great. Although my cake was worked into my event package at the hotel, I had a great time going to a tasting at their location. I went to one of their monthly cake tastings, and it was great. They were so nice and accommodating. When I got to a week before the wedding, they were in constant communication with me when I had questions about a cake stand. I am extremely pleased with how the cake turned out and they also handled my delicate cake topper and stand with care.

We knew how good our cake was, but I wanted to make sure our guests really had the chance to enjoy it too. We had "cake to go" boxes available and our guests STILL talked about eating the cake slices days after our wedding :)

Chocolate cake with raspberry filling is where it's at! We so highly recommend going with CCD!

They really are custom cakes in every sense.

Our first vendor backed out, feeling our design was too elaborate. We were lucky enough to get a recommendation for Custom Cake Design from a family friend who had used them several times for events and weddings.

Custom Cake Design was able to create the exact design / presentation we'd hoped for and they were incredibly responsive, we had only 2.5 weeks before our wedding. We had so many accolades about how adorable and fantastic the cake was.

OMG, I shopped for the best cake ever and found it here! We knew we wanted something chocolate and raspberry, and ended up with a combination of the white raspberry cake with raspberry filling and chocolate raspberry cake with raspberry filling. We ordered a bigger cake than we needed on purpose and had some of the white raspberry cake left over. Don't you know we had several people calling us up and even stopping by a few days later..."hey do you have any of that cake left over, I was hoping.." My 80+ year old Dad, an ice cream lover, said I loved, it, I had both types. For our first anniversary we opted to not freeze the top cake, but are planning to go back and get a whole new cake! It was that DELICIOUS. The monthly cake tasting that they offer is definitely worth it.

Custom Cake design located in Gaithersburg, MD did a great job with our wedding cake. They have open houses at their bakery every month and my fiance and I went one time to check them out. We were able to sample many different flavors and see examples of the cake designs. They break their prices down by 3 tiers with the first tier being the most and the 3 tier being the most intricate design. Our wedding had a rustic elegance theme so we went with a simple tier one design. We ordered flowers from our florist for them to arrange on the cake the day of the wedding. You are able to have each tier of your cake be a different flavor and we chose to go with tried and true vanilla, chocolate and red velvet. Their cake is super moist and delicious and tasted the same on the wedding day as it did at the tasting. All of our guests raved about how good the cake was. We were very pleased with how it turned out. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a cake for their wedding.
