The cake was by far the best we've ever tasted, from the cake itself to the frosting--delicious. We had 3 different cake flavors; all were superb. And the cake decoration turned out exactly as we had hoped.

Sandy made my dream cake. It was so perfect in every way that I want to tear up just thinking about it. It was an incredible four tier round cake for 170 with a chocolate base, a chocolate chip tier, a confetti tier for the kids, and another chocolate tier. The icing was off white fondant and there were white fondant and crystalized sugar flowers. It was truly a piece of art. I have been to five weddings in the last year and none of them have been this beautiful or delicious! She was so good at listening to what I really wanted and seriously made my wedding magical. My mouth is literally watering thinking about that cake.

Sandy was SO sweet! I had so much fun at the cake tasting, even though I had to go by myself when my mom got caught in a snow storm that day. She made me feel so good about my ideas for design and combined my ideas PERFECTLY to fit our theme. Several of our guests said it was the best wedding cake they'd ever eaten! I'm not even a cake person, and I had a piece for breakfast the next morning! The icing was delicious! We can't wait to unwrap that lemon tier top on our first anniversary!!!

If you want the most beautiful and delicious wedding cake made by one of the nicest bakers in Cincinnati, you have to go with DessertWorks Cakery! Prior to the wedding, we tasted several cakes and all of them were just so-so. Then we found Sandy and DessertWorks Cakery and I could not have been more thrilled. Sandy was fun and very easy to work with and truly, the cake was AMAZING (I am still getting compliments about how delicious it was!). If you are searching for a great baker... look no further! Ordering your wedding cake from DessertWorks is an absolute MUST!

Dessertworks did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding cake. We came in with a picture we had seen on pinterest and she was more than willing to try it out. They have the largest assortment of flavors I have seen as well. With all the vendors in our wedding, it was nice to have a vendor that we didn't have to worry about. She showed up on time and everything looked just the way we had planned.

This cake was amazing!!! She was very helpful at creating the cake we invisioned. Not to mention it was DELICIOUS!!!!!!! We had chocolate, and vanilla carmel swirl. They were both incredible!! We didn't get a chance to eat much of it at the wedding, but we took some for the next day. We were sad there wasn't more left over to eat. She did a wonderful job!

Sandy was wonderful to work with, giving us ideas and listening to what we wanted. Most importantly, our Wedding Cake was FANTASTIC! It tasted so good, so moist, so beautifully decorated! It was freshly prepared and arrived in perfect time all set up and ready to go! She added the fresh roses to our cake that our florist had left by the cake table. Perfect and Beautiful!

Sandy made us the MOST BEAUTIFUL & UNIQUE cake for our wedding. We brought her a picture of a half traditional white wedding cake fused together with a chocolate cake. Essentially a twist ice cream cone but in the cake form. Sandy was up for the challenge and certainly did not disappoint. Not only was the cake delicious, but it looked 100% better than the picture we brought her for inspiration. All 3 flavors of cake were equally delectable. I think I speak for many when I say that this was the BEST wedding cake ever. Thanks again to Dessertworks Cakery for making our dream cake!!

Jamie, you and Derek were such a delight to work with... and brought me a wonderful concept!!! While we were waiting to place the cake at The Bell Event Center, it started to sprinkle so they let us bring it in before the ceremony was over and wait in the back hallway. When your guests walked by, they were going "OMIGOSH that smells wonderful:" Loved the idea of "peeling back" the white frosting to "reveal" a decadent chocolate underside. I'm so happy you both loved it as it was as special as you two are! Best wishes for many, many happy years of wedding bliss! (oh, and I made your cake my profile picture on Facebook... sweet!)

DessertWorks Cakery I will forever recommend to any bride-to-be or person celebrating a special occasion in need of cake. Sandy's shop was referred to me thru my wedding. Never did I imagine I would develop such a great relationship w/ my cake baker. She is very kind, down-to-earth person, & comes ready to create your vision. Her work is incredible! Visit her website & you will agree. My wedding cake was perfect. I wouldn't change a thing about it. It was the best tasting cake I have ever had. My guests raved about it. For my husband's 30th birthday I most definitely went right back for Sandy's help, & she designed the best Harley Motorcycle cake for a husband's 30th birthday that there could ever be. I've never seen my husband that excited over dessert. One last thing I must mention about DessertWorks Cakery, is that they know what they're doing. Sandy won't let a person get out of hand w/ their cake creation. She will draw you up a sketch to show you & will make sure it stays classy, & not on the verge of tacky. She's outstanding at what she does. She will not disappoint!

Sandy is friendly, professional and definitely knows how to make a good cake! My wedding was December of 2011 and we decided on a spread of cupcakes and one small cake. We were able to offer our guests about 5 different flavors and every one of them was good (she has a ton of flavors to choose from and they're all delicious, she will let you try everything she has already baked that day.)
Everyone LOVED how tasty and beautiful our cake was!! She'll work with you to make sure it's perfect. I wanted something very specific so I brought the cake decorations to her and she was able to make it look exactly how I wanted.
My husband and I just celebrated our 1st anniversary so we got the cake top out of the freezer to try. We weren't sure how it would be after being in the freezer for so long but when we tried it we were blown away! It is JUST as good as it was on our wedding day! Moist and full of flavor!!! We couldn't be more pleased. And even though we live in KY and it's a bit of a drive to Dessertworks, the quality of Sandy's work makes it worthwhile to go to her for any future cake needs. (A gender reveal cake for our future baby, for example.) She's wonderful and we highly recommend Dessertworks!

Our cake was amazing, delicious and beautiful:) I love that she doesn't charge for a different flavor on each layer, she was by far the most reasonably priced (and delicious!) baker we saw. Everyone loved the cake, and the design went perfect with our wedding theme. She has so many options for cake and filling flavors, it was almost too hard to choose:)

The cake tasted great! Everything was ready on time and the cake looked exactly as we had discussed. Although, a little pricey. I would still go with Dessert Works again!

This place was great. Our best man was allergic to peanuts and they did everything possible to make sure no peanuts came in contact with our cake!

WOW - the cake was sooooo good! Sandy did a great job of meeting our needs and serving a large wedding (400!) - the first piece tasted just as good as the last! The prices were extremly reasonable and she took care of everything! It was such a weight lifted that I did not have to give a second thought about the cake - I knew she would get it set up and looking great on the day of the wedding without any problems!

Dessert Works was wonderful. They took all the time we needed to help us decide on the flavor and style of the cake. I had a idea in my head of the perfect wedding cake and dessert works made my dream come true. They set up the cake at the reception hall exactly as I wanted it and it looked great. I will remember my cake forever because of them.

I had a totally bad experience. My cake arrived 2 hrs late without calling.. my MOH and husband was blowing her phone up,her excuse because she had a last minute birthday cake (That was more important than my $1000 wedding cake) When we said our vows they had no idea if it was here or not, She was actually finishing setting it up as my guest was walking in.. I ordered 3 cake flavors and only got two one of which was super dry. AND finally I was told and in my contract I would receive a FREE anniversary cake well i didnt! We just celebrated it. Cakeless! Sandy said not to worry about saving the cake she gives a free one. Well 2 weeks before the anniv. i called and left a message...no response.. one week i called again, and again had to leave a message and you guessed it once again no response. I live over an hr away so i wasn't about to go there with gas prices what they are just to drive back to pick it up. I called a total of 11 times over the 2 weeks and left 5 messages ( my husband left one) and she never called me back. I called all different times of the day and business days and weekends. So as far as im concerned dont waste your money here its a joke.. Oh i called as a "bride" planning a wedding, and she called me the following day, to schedule an appt. :(

As a professional of high standards,I am shocked by this undeserving review!! It is beyond me why, it was necessary to write, in such a vicious & untruthful manner, when in fact, we provided exactly what we were contracted to provide on her wedding day and more! The exaggerations: The cake was $591 not $1,000;No “last minute” BDcakes were taken, I checked the tickets! That NEVER happens in our bakery; Wedding cakes take precedence over any other cake. Period. Both Bride& Diane Hood @Oscar Event Center said wedding was 4:45pm & separate from the reception room which was at 6PM. Diane dictated I was not permitted to bring the cake until AFTER 4pm. I confirmed cake arrival tobe 4:15-4:45: Arrived at 4:25, set up cake, took extra time to secure unstable glass topper & gone at 5pm. I have a time stamp of the final cake picture on my husband’s phone, of 4:59pm. An entire HOUR before the reception started. I was not two hours late. We were there within the time frame dictated by the venue. There WERE 3 cake flavors;25 lemon svgs out of 150 goes quick. Cake was dark purple, w/ teal fondant swag & 4 rows of bling ribbon. Top layer is free; Box provided. No provision in contract for ANOTHER free cake at 1 yr; Policy for past 9 yrs, (on website), new top for $10 w/ pic of cake cutting. I keep spiral notebooks & record all phone msgs & reflect Mrs. Jones left ONE message, the wk of Sept2. A return msg left w regrets too late to order for 8th, but could 10th. We DIDN’T receive 5 voice mgs! Regardless, if dial us 2 or 100 times; if you don’t leave msg, we can’t help you! Open hours clearly stated on website; closed am’s & Sun/ Mon. Could’ve email us: she has our email addy!! I apologize this couple did not enjoy our cake for their anniv. b/c I LOVE hearing from our couples If they still wishes an anniv cake, they’re welcome. I pray God will bless her, her family & bring her peace. This cake was beautiful and I am proud of it and will stand by our work on that day
