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

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! :)

Our wedding cake was included in our package with the Franklin Country Club so we didn't really know what to expect. But WOW. Not only was our cake gorgeous in everyday but it was also delicious. Dessert works took our ideas and turned them into our dream cake. Thank you so much for making this experience so easy and stress free.

Dessert Works has delicious, beautifully decorated cakes. I did my due diligence and visited several bakeries in the Boston area, and this one had the best designed and best tasting cakes for a great price. When I came in for the cake tasting with my mom and fiancé, Kristen was thorough when we talked through our wedding details and numerous cake options. I worked with Jacqueline to finalize the design. She was very knowledgeable and worked to accommodate me on the weekends since I was an out of town bride. The end result was beautiful and delicious, and some guests even thought the top was fake since it was so perfectly decorated. We had no leftovers since everyone loved it, and the added bonus is the fact that they give you a mini version of your wedding cake in a protective freezer case to eat on your one year anniversary. I'd highly recommend Dessert Works to make your wedding cake!

My husband and I wanted our cake to be simple, elegant, and delicious, with fresh flowers on the top. We met with Kristen, the owner, who was very helpful and informative despite the fact that we didn't know what we wanted when we walked in. After looking at hundreds of options and designs, Kristen helped us narrow down what we wanted and tasted 3 different cakes. All of them were amazingly delicious. We chose casata rum, which was a huge hit at the wedding! Kristen told us to talk to our flower company about having fresh flowers on the top of the cake, which turned out to be beautiful. I highly recommend Dessertworks for any occasion. I will be back for sure!

Dessert Works provided a beautiful 3-tier cake for my local reception that followed our destination wedding, and I couldn't have been happier with the experience of working with them. I had originally planned on having a cake made by a close friend at this event, but found out last minute that the venue would only allow food that was prepared in a licensed bakery. I was referred to Dessert Works by my planner and was able to deal with the owner Kristen directly. Part of our challenge was that I moved 2500 miles away in the midst of planning, so coordinating a cake within only a few weeks could only be done over email and a few quick phone calls. Kristen was very understanding of our situation and made the process very easy...we reviewed a few pictures, discussed the pricing and options, then quickly agreed on a design and flavors. Since I was out of the country for 3 weeks before the event, she was very diligent to make sure all final questions were wrapped up before my trip so there was nothing left to worry about. Though I was a little anxious on the day of the event, since I had never been able to do a tasting or visit the bakery during the planning process, I was absolutely blown away when I first saw the beautiful cake at the reception! For what is probably one of the simplest designs you can choose, this cake was absolutely stunning (and delicious!). You can truly tell just how much time and effort Dessert Works puts into ensuring nothing but the best quality is delivered to their clients, and that is exactly what every bride hopes for. Thank you, Kristen, for making such a perfect cake for our special day!

Dessert Works provided the half-chocolate, half strawberries and cream cake for my wedding. We decided to go with Kristen and Dessert Works based on the delicious cakes we tried at our tasting, Kristen's professionalism and our general sense that they would provide a product we were happy with. The whole process was problem-free. Kristen was courteous, professional and responded in a timely manner to my emails. When we decided that we did not want right away the honeymoon cake that comes with the contract, we worked it out with Kristen that we could get a gift certificate for the value of the honeymoon cake that we can use on our one year anniversary (or whenever) to get a replica of our wedding cake made. I definitely recommend Dessert works.

OH MY GOD, best wedding cake ever! We did several tastings at other stores, but we stopped once we came here. SO GOOD!! We chose the vanilla cake with raspberry mousse and raspberry preserves and it was honestly the most moist, delicious cake! We have been to several wedding with both cake and cupcakes, and ours was hands down 10x better than any others we have had. We knew it was amazing at our tasting but figured it wouldn’t be quite as good on the wedding day… nope, we were wrong, it was just as good if not better. Kristen, the baker, came out to meet us during our tasting and get a sense of what we were looking for, and was very professional and responsive during the wedding planning process. We had a picture of what we wanted our cake to look like and it came out even more beautiful than we imagined! Not only is she an incredible artist and chef, she is the sweetest person and really loves what she does. Plus her ingredients are all REAL, no fake stuff in her cakes! We also got a small mini-version of our cake to save for our one year anniversary… but we will back to her store sooner than that because it is soo good! You have to make a stop here, you won’t be disappointed!

I worked with Dessert Works to make my wedding cupcakes and it was a wonderful experience. We started out the process by meeting with Kristen over at the bakery. They have a great room with wedding cake displays set up so you can get ideas. We got to try out a bunch of different flavors and they were all amazing. We settled on a mix of chocolate, vanilla, and red velvet cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting. Kristen was meticulous about every detail and we worked out the design that each flavor of cupcake would have. She sketched out several designs for us and showed them to us on the cupcakes. I was incredibly impressed by the time and effort she put into helping us design our dream cake. When the big day finally came around, the finished product was amazing. Everyone was raving over how delicious the cupcakes were and how lovely they all looked on display. Kristen is an artist and a wonderful baker. I'm so thankful that I had the chance to work with her. I highly recommend Dessert Works to anyone looking for a great baker for their wedding or event.

Our wedding cake was more beautiful than we had imagined. The staff was always in contact via email with any questions we had. The flowers they created were more than we pictured for the cake. The scroll work done on the cake was made to match the pattern of my dress. They also made a sweet little "honeymoon cake" that is safe to freeze for our anniversary. We actually looked at our pictures again today and remarked at our beautiful cake, wishing we had more of it.

When my husband (then fiance) and I found Dessert Works, we were immediately drawn to them. We went in for a taste testing and the lady who helped us was very nice and willing to work with us to customize for our wedding. The cakes we tried were all so yummy, it was hard picking out just one. We wanted a small cake for us and a cupcake for each guest. We put our cake on the top of the cake tier and the cupcakes on the bottom levels. We heard endless compliments about how the cupcakes were such a great idea and how they looked so good. Each cupcake is made individually with your choice of the flower and color(s). It seems like it would be more expensive than just one cake for all your guests, but it was actually cheaper! Dessert Works delivered on time and set everything up.
We also liked Dessert Works because we got a little Anniversary Cake (that was made at the exact same time as our wedding cake, but secured in a clear box) for $15. I like how this one is new, it hasn’t already been cut, and it looks beautiful! We can’t wait to eat it…
Afterwards, when looking at our photo booth pictures, I saw some of our guests with their cupcakes in the photo booth… weird? Maybe. But delicious? Yes.

Dessert Works is absolutely amazing!!! I knew about them since I was a kid because my mom would get cakes and desserts for birthdays and holidays. When we went for a wedding cake tasting, I knew that Dessert Works would be the bakery I chose after trying the options I had picked. We went with a lemon cake with lemon curd and mousse filling and butter-cream frosting. It was absolutely delicious. One of the worst things that can happen to wedding cakes is that they can be dry, but not our cake; it was absolute delicious and moist. The ingredients are top notch and you can tell when eating the cake. They will also work with you to customize the perfect flavor for your cake which is a great bonus (we didn't just pick lemon cake, we got to chose how "lemony" we wanted it). The cake was so beautiful, I almost want another wedding just so I can have that cake again. Also, even though Dessert Works is in Westwood, MA they delivered my cake to Newport, RI. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a beautiful wedding cake, cake for a celebration or just for delicious desserts.

My parents and I went to 4 wedding cake vendors in 1 day (I was traveling from out of town and had limited time) so we really directly were able to compare cakes and vendors. Our choice was easy -- Dessert Works had the most delicious cake, as well as the most nice and professional staff.

Not too heavy or too light, and the flavors are amazing. Dessert Works was great about working with our budget -- we went with a 3-tier cake with lemon cream on the botton and marble with buttercream frosting on the top 2, and had a sheet carrot cake sent to the kitchen for cutting, which saved some money compared to having all the cake as a tiered cake. Sadly, I didn't get to try cake on my wedding day (was too busy dancing and talking with guests) but the bit of lemon cream I tried during the cake cutting was just as delicious as at the tasting. We got lots of compliments from our guests on the cake, so I'm sure the other flavors turned out great too!

The decorations were beautiful and the cake arrived right on time. I called a few times to adjust the cake size as we had a more accurate head count closer to our event, and about a few other nuts and bolts -- the staff was always able to take my call or return it the same day to answer my questions. Really super nice people.

And the anniversary cake is adorable. Instead of freezing the top tier of the cake, Dessert Works gives you a tiny little tiered cake version of your wedding cake. I loved how it looks and can't wait to eat it in a year!

Thanks so much to Dessert Works -- would definitely recommend.

I will preface this review by saying that I have a major sweet tooth and the cake taste was very important to me. We selected Dessert Works as our cake vendor for our wedding mainly due to customer service, artistry and taste. We loved that our cakes for the tasting were custom made and that the experience was so personalized. We had also tried several other vendors but no other vendors could hold a candle to the artistry we saw in the design and execution of their cakes. The price was a little higher than some other vendors we visited but the quality of the cake taste was much higher than other vendors and the artistry was above and beyond what we saw at other vendors. They have a very good artistic eye and all prices were explained carefully and understandable. All interactions leading up to the day were pleasant and accurate. Because of their artistry, I saved up to upgrade to the rolled chocolate flowers and I was not disappointed. They look better than real flowers, they were absolutely amazing. They also do a separate anniversary cake in a cute box that makes it that much easier as you don't have to have staff save the top tier. Delivery was great and we received many compliments on the cake, we did the marble with chocolate mousse frosting. The chocolate mousse frosting is to die for and I didn't taste anything comparable at the other vendors. Kristen and her staff (we worked with Anne as well) were amazing and Leonardo, Kristen's husband and co-owner was awesome as well. Wonderful people, great staff and out of this world ridiculously beautiful and delicious cakes. One of the highlights of my night, and I was still shoveling some leftover cake last night, 3 days later and it still tastes amazing! Go with this vendor, you will not be disappointed!

Our cake was included in our package at the Tiffany Ballroom and was just beautiful!! Everything we asked for was delivered. There are many designs to choose from and many flavors of cake and filling as well. DessertWorks invites you for a tasting of three choices of cake flavors and we had a hard time deciding. Our cake was three tiers so we chose two flavors one for the top tier and one for the bottom two tiers. On the day of our wedding we couldn"t believe how beautiful and unique our cake looked. Our guests agreed. And it was incredibly delicious. At the end of the night we were presented with a miniature of our cake in a sealed acrylic box to protect it while in the freezer awaiting our first anniversary. They call it a honeymoon cake. It brought tears to our eyes it was so adorable. I HIGHLY recommend this bakery for any occasion.

We had three flavors...Red Velvet, Carrot, and Chocolate Raspberry. My husband usually does not like chocolate cake, and isn't a huge fan of carrot cake either, but he LOVED both flavors at Dessert Works. In fact, he enjoyed those two more than the Red Velvet, which is one of his favorites.

We spent more than I had ever planned on spending for a wedding cake, but our cake was beautiful and worth every cent. Completely delicious.

I almost forgot to mention three funny stories: 1) My husband walked into the consultation room and the first thing he said was "this is what a cake tasting is supposed to LOOK like." 2) They were incredibly patient with me and my notorious indecisiveness and crazy OCD planning tendencies. I even brought sketches to our first meeting!! (post wedding, I am laughing at myself) 3) We went back after our initial consultation (because we're greedy, lol) and bought a pumpkin cheesecake pastry for a friend...it was so good, she hid the rest from her husband! lol

The design and colors were just as we had requested. I would highly recommend them.

They have a wide variety of flavors not typically offered as standard, we had cappuccino torte and boston cream pie, and instead of fondant they used rolled chocolate. They made the most perfect cake for me and three after the wedding the boston cream pie was still as moist as the day we got married.

A lot of people either don't eat the cake at a wedding or assume the worst. My mom and I went to Dessert Works and met with Claire who helped us through our first tasting. We were immediately blown away by the flavors and variety. I think we ate too much at our tasting, but it was too good not to finish. We ended up with a red velvet cake with a cream cheese frosting. Everyone licked it clean off their plates and complimented us on how delicious the cake was. I think by far this is the best cake I have ever consumed - even better than a local Brookline/Beacon Street favorite.

Not to mention, they gave us a the small top piece to freeze for our 1 year anniversary in a glass box that makes you smile each and every time you open up the freezer.

They are amazing to work with and fairly priced. We also used them for my Bridal Shower before my wedding as they created a variety of flavored cupcakes. Also a huge success!

OMG!!!! DOn't bother with the "bug guys" You know who they are - all fluff and no stuff. They may look pretty and put on a good show, but taste - they get a 2.5 at best. Not Kristen - if i could give her more than a 5, i would. She was so sweet and great to work with. My daughter (the bride) and I did our first tasting with her the day after she opened in her new (adorable) location in Westwood. We went back a 2nd time with the groom and grandma and she was just as attentive the 2nd time. One mouthful and the groom agreed - this was the place. Kristen and her crew designed exactly what they wanted - custom done from a picture they had seen, but totally different. And the taste - wow! Our guests are still talking about the cake more than a month later - and we keep going back for more. And we have a perffect miniature, packed in a plastic case, to have on the first anniversary. You must check out Dessert Works - you'll be converted in a taste!

During our consultation, their wedding coordinator explained our package and allowed us to sample their cakes. They were amazing! It made our decision hard because they were all so good.

I went in privately to have a surprise groom's cake made for the wedding day for my husband - the cake was designed to look like his soccer jersey. They did an AWESOME job. He was so impressed and surprised. :)

Dessert Works was the first, and only, cake shop we visited! After our initial tasting, it was clear that we didn't have to search any further for a wedding cake! Not only was every single slice of cake we tried DELICIOUS, but the staff was incredibly kind and helpful. Dessert Works shared multiple dessert options with us until we found a cake combination that we were excited about. After our wedding we received multiple compliments about how wonderful the cake was :) I would certainly recommend Dessert Works to anyone!

We had the best cake. Kristen worked with us to get exactly the cake we wanted. She even made butter cream lilies for us since our flowers were lilies and roses! The cake was gorgeous, and the mini-cake in the clear freezer box is just such a great addition to a wonderful package. Everyone was raving about how good the cake was. I can't recommend this bakery enough!

Hi,
From the second I walked through the door of the bakery I knew this was the place that I would get my cake. I sat down for the tasting and it was so good I was sold. They give you so much to taste not a sliver but a slice. I went with a four layer strawberry cream filled, I think it was called that, but see for yourself and try them. They even gave me cake samples to go because my husband to be could not make it. The girl doing the order called back when I asked and the whole process was very smooth. They delivered the cake on time and it was beautiful.

They give you so much to taste not a sliver but a slice. I went with a four layer strawberry cream filled, I think it was called that, but see for yourself and try them. They even gave me cake samples to go because my husband to be could not make it. The girl doing the order called back when I asked and the whole process was very smooth. They delivered the cake on time and it was beautiful. Read less

My husband and I considered Dessert Works and one other well-known Boston area bakery for our wedding cake. We ended up going with Dessert Works because of their professionalism, quality, and price. We met with Sara, the wedding cake coordinator, for our tasting. She was very organized and had helped us figure out what type of design would be best for our style and budget. The taste and quality of the cake was incredible! We ended up choosing the dulce de leche flavor for our entire wedding cake. It was sweet, creamy and different than your standard wedding cake.

On the big day, we were pleased to see how beautiful our cake turned out! We received lots of compliments from our guests on both the appearance and taste of the cake (one guest admitted to having 3 slices!). One of the other things that I personally liked about Dessert Works is that instead of saving the top tier of cake, they give you a mini-replica of your cake (they call it a honeymoon cake, I think). It comes in a clear box, ready to freeze – so cute!

Dessert Works was the first cake place that we looked at for our wedding and we immediately knew that we had to get our cake from them! They provided us with multiple samples of cake and although it was a hard choice, we settled on the red velvet. On the day of the wedding, I was so nervous, I barely ate, but I made sure to eat all of my piece of cake. It was scrumptious! All of my guests commented on how they have never tasted a wedding cake that moist and delicious before. I would highly recommend Dessert Works!

This was the second wedding cake place we "interviewed," and the difference was incredible. Dessert Works is THE BEST: beautiful cakes that are really delicious, and it's extremely easy to work with them. Here's the difference: Cake place #1 (high end place in Brookline) we were seated in a dirty little area with a million different old albums of cakes. The head baker came over and took notes after asking me questions like "give me three adjectives to describe your wedding." And then she send us home with 4 tiny slivers of very mediocre cake. It was all kind of talk, talk, talk and no specifics--very weird and baffling.
Dessert Works: Immaculate space with a wedding specialist to help you. First you taste four large and delicious pieces of cake, and then you talk about cakes. Everything about the cakes and their pricing is quickly and efficiently broken down for you, and the end result is just wonderful. You have to drive a little to get to the bakery (about 30 min from Cambridge/Boston), but it's well worth it. Highest recommendation!

She is SUPER quick to respond to emails and was great about making sure we stuck to our budget. My husband and I were unsure if we were even going to have a wedding cake because of the cost, but after tasting their cake and working with Sara, we were convinced. The best part is that the cake not only looked wonderful, it TASTED fantastic!

Amazing! Our wedding cake was unbelievable...They were very afordable, professional, creative, and the cake was delicious! They don't use fondant which is great because that makes cakes taste disgusting...They use buttercream frosting, which is to die for. We chose the chocolate raspberry four tier cake ~ My family is still commenting on how amazing the cake was, both inside and out :)

I was looking for a traditional Italian ricotta cheesecake/cheese pie for my wedding cake as it's my favorite cake. I had them displayed on antique china cake plates at different heights to make it look more formal :-) I went all over New England tasting cakes (even all through the North End in Boston!) and Dessert Works in Norwood had the best cake hands-down. They were very flexible about the flavoring and crust of the cake, and delivered the cakes the day of to the wedding venue, which was about an hour away from them. The cakes got big raves from my Italian family at the wedding! While at the bakery, we also picked up a couple of cakes to bring home for a party and the other cakes were DELICIOUS and gorgeously decorated too.

First I called to make arrangements to meet for a cake tasting for my wedding. The tasting went smooth, I loved the 3 cake flavors (you are able to choose 3 I believe) The woman doing the cake tasting with my mother and I allowed us to take a piece of the cake we liked the best home with us, after I asked because I knew my grandmother who was in the hospital at the time and most likely would not make it to my wedding would love it.
They were always prompt with emailed questions. The cake was absolutely stunning on display at the reception hall. All 3 flavors of cake were moist, and well flavored. The frosting was amazing as well. The mini replica of the cake they give you in a hard plastic box for your one year anniversary is such a great idea. It is not as bulky as the traditional top of the cake and it is in a somewhat protective box. Everytime I go in my freezer the little cake catches my eye :)
I have worked at 2 function facilities and tried many other companies cakes most of the other companies I tried I either just liked the frosting, or just the cake, or just the filling NEVER all 3. The Dessertworks cake I LOVED ALL 3 aspects of the cake.
I would reccommend this bakery to any one and everyone I could. On top of beinga spectacular bakery their prices are very reasonable compared to other bakeries.
My reccomendation definately try the lemon summer berry it is absolutely out of this world.

We served red velvet cupcakes from Dessert Works during our reception. All that dancing can work up an appetite, you know.

I already knew that Dessert Works was professional, affordable and delicious because my friends and family were raving about them when I served them at my birthday party earlier in the year.

We had a destination wedding so they made sure the boxes could withstand the long car ride and being refrigerated at the inn for 2 days before being served.

Terrific service. Very friendly staff.

It was amazing to me how willing they were to provide us with exactly what we wanted. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a beautiful and delicious wedding cake.

The best wedding cake I have ever tasted! The tasting was perfect and they accomodated both sets of parents and my wife and me as well. Every cake we tried was delicious, so it was hard to choose, but you can't go wrong with chocolate! The decoration was amazing, and it looked more beautiful than I could have imagined.

The best part was an exact replica of the cake as a miniature that my wife and I were able to save for our one month anniversary! Great people, great cake, and great experience!

I worked with Emily a long time ago she does the tastings for Dessertworks and was the person I was in contact with about my cake I could not get over how gorgeous my cake was and how many sugar flowers there were. The flowers looked so good half our guests thought they were fresh flowers I wish I knew how to add a picture because the cake was so beautiful and the taste was amazing. We chose the raspberry, carrot cake and cappuchino which everyone loved. I cannot wait to send Emily a picture of us cutting the cake because me and my husband were so pleased with the quality and workmanship that went into making it. I would highly recommend this vendor to anyone price was reasonable.

We spent many long hours trying to duplicate a picture of a cake in a wedding book, my daughter insisited on having for her own, to no avail. Either they couldnt manage to do the shape, (square boxes on layers) or the decorations, (leaves and berries) or the cakes didnt taste very good.
And at the last moment, a month before the wedding, we found Dessertworks. After my first meeting with them, I wanted to know why we hadnt heard of them before. Truly exceptional service, willingness to do whatever we required, and work with us. Always available in timely manner to answer questions. Their cakes are extraordinary, to look at and taste. So many flavors to chose from, each one the best of the best in its category. Very hard to make a decision.
And just as we were finalizing our custom cake, my daughter's eyes are glued on one of their own designs in the show room and that was it. She changed her mind and order their design!
Just about everyone at the wedding, including the caterer, wanted to know where we got it. "the most beautiful cake they had ever seen. And so very delicious. Our guests were looking to take some home.
They also give you a minature anniversary cake, just enough for two, just like the original..what a wonderful touch, we displayed that as well
The cost was so very reasonable, I would have paid much more
Honestly, do yourself a favor, go to dessertworks first, you will be very glad you did!

DessertsWorks made a beautiful cake for may wedding on 7-07-2007. We had a picnic theme with two bears in a rowboat for the cake topper.

We went to several bakeries before this one, and we know after the first test bite that this was the place! The people were very friendly and had everything ready when we arrived at our scheduled appointment. A little on the expensive side compared to other local places, but completely worth it because of the quality.

DessertWorks did a wonderful job on our wedding cake. The whole process was wonderful... from the first meeting to the tasting to the groom's cake I ended up ordering for the rehearsal dinner, to the actual wedding cake. More specifically, Claire from DessertWorks was phenomenal. She was so nice and happy and helpful whenever we met or spoke on the phone. It's hard for me to make decisions on just about anything, but Claire made it easy. We ended up designing the perfect wedding cake, which was also delicious! I tasted 4 wedding cake bakeries in total, and DessertWorks was BY FAR the best one, and having the wedding cake not only look good but TASTE good was crucial.

Plus, they give you a teeny tiny baby replica of your wedding cake, complete with the decoration and flowers, to have as your "honeymoon cake" after the wedding. They give it to you in a small clear acrylic cake box, and it was the cutest thing I have ever seen. Our wedding was on Saturday, and it traveled with us all the way from our home in Newton to the Boston airport, to the plane, to the hotel in London where we had an overnight layover. We got to eat our baby cake as dessert after our first dinner as husband and wife on our honeymoon :)

I couldn't recommend DessertWorks more!

Dessert Works made 9 cakes for our October wedding, each cake was the centerpiece of all of the dining tables and one classic wedding cake. They were a little higher priced then the other bakeries we looked at although it was well worth it because you could tell the quality of the product and really what difference does $50 or $100 dollars make in the scheme of things. They were great to work with and I could not have asked for more overall. Great customer service. If you are looking to find them in the future I was told that they are relocating to Westwood.

We visited Dessert Works for our wedding cake based solely on the fact that the Phantom Gourmet approves of them. And with good reason! We taste-tested three flavors of cake and chose two: Boston cream pie and dolce de leche. They were AMAZING. We described what we wanted it to look like, and they went above and beyond. Cascading fall leaves, beautiful ivy scrollwork and chocolate ribbons. It was GORGEOUS. Plus, it tasted like heaven. We're still getting comments from people that it was the best wedding cake they've ever tasted. We found the cost reasonable as well, around $400 for 70 people.

Dessert Works was very easy to work with, and very accommodating. I had a specific design that I had created that I gave to them and the execution and the final product came out absolutely amazing. It was exactly what I asked for. The two different flavors of the cake were amazing. Everyone at our wedding asked where we got our cake from. We ended up spending more than we wanted to spend on the cake, and looking back on it now, we don't regret spending the extra money on the amazing cake we received.

We used Dessert works for our wedding at Spring Valley on 8/27/11. We wanted something a little different for our wedding. I worked with Claire and decided on a small two tiered red velvet cake with buttercream frosting and we offered our guests assorted desserts including cheesecake, fruit tart, chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate cake. The ordering process was very easy. The staff is organized, flexible and friendly. The desserts were fantastic. I have already referred family and friends to dessert works and would highly recommend this vendor :)

SO DELICIOUS! Our wedding cake was absolutely beautiful and amazingly delicious. Dessert Works does not use fondant (yuck), but you would never guess it from how flawless the cakes look. We had a tasting at one of the very big popular wedding cake bakery (you can probably guess), but just weren't that excited about how their cakes tasted. Dessert Works blew them out of the water on taste and design. We used the Summer Lemon Berry and Chocolate Chocolate (my favorite) flavors. They are a good bit more expensive than most bakeries (even the huge popular bakery), but we thought it was worth it for their product. Claire was very great to work with and was great on communication and getting me on task with things. Highly recommended!

Dessert Works was part of our wedding package with Four Points, Norwood. Picking our wedding cake was easy, it was beautiful, on time, and tasted amazing (we got the Strawberries and Cream). My only complaint is the 'extra cost.' I went in wanting a simple, square cake. The cost was an extra $2 per person for a square as opposed to a round. Then, an additional $50 for a Fondant ribbon. The cake had to feed 200 people, so adding on the extras was not an option. I ended up with a simple round 4-tier cake, and it was beautiful, but not exactly what I wanted.

We tried several cakes, and these were hands-down the absolute best. I really wanted a lemon cake, and Dessert Works was the only one we tasted that tasted like real lemon, not lemon flavoring. We also were able to have the bottom tier chocolate (a request of my husband) which was also fantastic.

We can't wait to eat the tier we saved!

I am so glad we went with Dessert Works in Westwood for our wedding cake. They worked closely with us every step of the way to custom design an amazing cake. More importantly, it was incredibly delicious! Our guests raved about the rich but light flavors of the cake (vanilla cake with chocolate mousse and Boston cream). A special touch added by Dessert Works was the inclusion of a miniature version of our wedding cake in a sealed container, to be frozen and eaten on our first anniversary.

Dessert Works cakes are awesome - all of our guests loved the flavor. We went with vanilla - raspberry filling and vanilla - chocolate mouse filing. We also had them do some mini pastries because we didn't want to end up going home with any extra cake. The honeymoon cake was an awesome added touch - can't wait to eat it next year! I also ordered a custom groom's cake for the rehearsal dinner - Dessert Works definitely nailed this one, it was perfect!

My only complaint was the turnover in the wedding planning office was a bit much and clearly caused for unorganization. We paid in full for the cake 6 weeks out, finalized the design and only needed to provide the number of minis we wanted and payment. I received a phone call from the 3rd wedding coordinator (in 7 months) 2 weeks before asking if we'd like to come in to pay for the cake and finalize the design. I was floored. I explained everything and she had to call me back after she did some research. HR and personnel relations is clearly not a strong suit - but thank goodness baking is :o) We will definitely be using Dessert Works for our future cake needs.
