Let Dessert Works create a masterpiece for your special day. From individual cakes for everyone on your guest list, to a grand centerpiece, a Dessert Works wedding cake will make your event one to remember.

We are sure you will "fall in love" with our cakes and will walk away knowing that your Dessert Works wedding cake will be a beautiful symbol of your day.

Each tier of our wedding cakes is European "torte" style with 3 layers of cake and 2 layers of mousse. To offer your guests more variety, or if you can’t decide which flavor you like best, each tier may be a different flavor. Weddings of 20 to 69 guests are generally 2-tiered cakes and parties of 70 or more start with 3-tiers.

Prices start at $4.00 per person (select flavors start at $4.50-5 per person) and include round cakes with vanilla meringue buttercream frosting, buttercream flowers and design work. Additional shapes, frostings and designs such as rolled chocolate, fresh flowers, or our signature handmade chocolate butterflies are available at an additional charge. Read less

I was specifically looking for a vegan wedding cake as the groom is egg sensitive. Dessert Works made us the most delicious chocolate vegan cake with butter cream icing! It looked beautiful and our guests raved about it. What made the process even easier was I could taste the cake at home: they make vegan cupcakes with the icing (just like the wedding cake) and sell them in their store. I brought home two cupcakes and that was it. Sold! From the very beginning, they were so professional and made me feel relaxed about the process. They make wonderful non-vegan cakes, no wonder they received the award "Best of Boston 2014"!

I love cake, and come from a family that loves cake and is very particular about cake and frosting. So when I had to find a bakery for my wedding cake, the stakes were pretty high. My family adores Party Favors in Brookline, and I love them as well, but I wanted something a little higher end. Dessert Works was on the list of recommended vendors for our venue, so we checked them out and loved them.

Jacqueline made us a custom-made spice cake with American buttercream frosting (which isn't the fancy, "good" buttercream, but my family really loves sugary frosting, so it was amazing). It was absolutely phenomenal; easily one of the best cakes I've ever had. My family members kept coming up to the sweetheart table during dessert to gush about how awesome the cake was.

We ended up having an entire tier to take home with us, which we ate over the course of a week. It was delicious.

Dessert Works was definitely on the pricier end of the bakeries we looked at, but the delicious cake was worth every penny.

We worked with Jacqueline at Dessertworks and it was awesome! She was very receptive to our ideas and very helpful with everything that we needed. Our initial meeting we had decided on one type of cake and then a few months later I completely changed my mind about what I wanted the cake to look like and she was able to help us with that. She was also able to help me with a grooms cake that I wanted to surprise my husband with. Both cakes came out amazing. The wedding cake was exactly what I had dreamed about and wanted, it exceeded my expectations completely! I was also extremely happy with how the grooms cake came out as well. All of the cakes TASTED AMAZING to top everything off. I would definitely recommend Dessertworks and would definitely make the 40 minute trip for any other occasion cake as well. They are so worth it.

Easy choice. BEST. CAKE. EVER. A self-professed wedding cake snob at our wedding declared it the best he's ever had. The groom and I don't even like cake and LOVED it! Jacqueline was easy to work with- she made the process so simple! The value was amazing- we fed everyone and had TONS leftover and didn't even order enough to feed all our guests. You know what that means? More cake for us! :P

These guys did an outstanding job!! Kristen helped me revamp an already place order when I realized that we would be having close an additional 20 guests. She brilliantly executed the new plan which I loved better than the original. We have over the past year ordered a few cakes from these folks..birthdays, showers etc.. They do not disappoint. They have some of the best cake I have ever tasted and my now husband who does not care overly much for cake raves about theirs. They created a special flavor for us, crème brulee, that was exceptional. Their attention to detail throughout the process was also truly impressive. They were a joy to work with and everything went as was planned and turned out better than expected. They made for us a trio of cakes for 4 dining rooms and a vendor cake as well as a huge cake to cut. All of them were rustic vintage looking with single elegant sugar flower on each. Our larger cake was beautiful ruffles kissed with scattered ladybugs and lotus blossoms. I loved my cakes.Hire them QUICK!

Best cake ever!!!!!!! Dessert Works was incredible. We worked specifically with Jacqueline, and she was wonderful. Our wedding cake was soooooooo delicious and the design was gorgeous. I ordered a grooms cake for the hubby and they nailed it. It was a Ferrari logo cake with his initials on it - amazing. If I could attach pictures, I would in a heartbeat. He absolutely LOVED it, actually, everyone did. My guests raved about how delicious the cakes were, and how they wished they could've had more. Can't wait to order my next cakes!!!!!!!!!

Dessert Works was part of the vendors that my venue works with. I got married at the Four Points Sheraton in Norwood.

Dessert Works in my opinion stands up to any professional bakery. Very knowledgable staff and very professional as well. I got my cupcakes, small wedding cake to cut and wedding favors through them (short bread cookies with frosting). AMAZING!

I love this bakery so much that now I go just to stop in and buy something for myself or for any family event. You will not be disappointed! My favorite thing about this bakery is that everything is sweet but not too sweet... it's just right! :)
