I can't say enough wonderful things about Dianne and her beautiful cakes (that are works of art!)
Dianne made our wedding cake, and other than marrying each other, I think her cakes were the part of the wedding we were most excited about. I can't recommend Dianne's cakes enough.
1) There are so many delicious flavors to choose from. We choose lemon cake with raspberry filling, white cake with strawberry filling, and mint chocolate chip (yum!) The is not any additional cost for the flavors, and people are still coming us to up to ask us how they can get more cake.
2) When you go to sample the cake, you get to bring home small cakes for your family etc. to taste the cake as well. This was really appreciated.
3) Dianne is a cake magician. Other bakers that we spoke to said that the intricate designs (such as you would see on tv shows) are made through using fondant (not frosting.) My fiance does not like the taste of fondant, and most bakers said that if we wanted to use buttercream frosting, we could not have a complicated design. Dianne did not have such limits. Using only buttercream frosting, she made a three tier cake including frosting with scroll work design, sugar flowers, a lace design and pearl quilting.
4) Dianne's pricing is very fair and transparent. We also were able to take advantage of having a sheet cake in the kitchen (that was less per slice than the tiered cake) but no one could tell the difference.
5) Dianne herself is a true delight. I am so happy I got to work with her, and have her delicious cake. I can't wait for my next party so I can order one of her cakes again!
6) Dianne delivered the cake to the venue safely in the cake-safe, and I never worried about anything.

We whole heartedly recommend Dianne's cakes for your wedding. They are delicious and beautiful, and she is wonderful to work with.

Diane's cakes are beautiful and they are just as delicious! I loved the decorating she did, but the cake was even better! So moist and flavorful. Everyone enjoyed it! It is going to be hard to save that top layer for a year later ;)

Dianne the Cake Lady was amazing! After reflecting on the wedding, she was one of the best and easiest vendors that we worked with and the cake was an absolute hit both visually and tastefully. Dianne was great with working with us on an unusual cake design and flavor. She ended up making a cardamom cake with mango filling and butter cream icing as well as lemon cake with blueberry filling and butter cream icing. Both were the first desserts gone at the dessert table.

I had an unusual design request with a henna design up the side and an intricate piping design for the top. Dianne executed both absolutely perfectly! I left her to be creative with the henna design and she did even better than what I could have imagined. For the design on top, she copied it to a T. For anybody who is looking for a skilled creative or great transfer artist, Dianne is your gal!

Dianne was also extremely professional and wonderful to work with. Starting with the estimate to sending me the final receipt, Dianne was on top of her work and great at keeping me informed and providing all the information needed. If you want a headache free cake experience, definitely go with The Cake Lady.

Dianne was absolutely incredible from start to finish!!! From the moment we were welcomed into her home for a cake tasting she greeted us with a wonderful smile and it was clear she had a passion for making our "cake dreams" come true. We had pre-selected two flavors via email and were able to bring the two 10" cakes home for our parent's to try (they were thrilled). I had cut out a few pictures of invitations and styles I liked and Dianne was more than happy to walk us through all of the options - cake size, color, design, stand etc.
My husband and I had reserved Dianne very early in our wedding planning process as I had previously worked in the wedding industry and knew our wedding weekend would fill up fast. I found her prices to be about average to a little high - but the CAKE WAS ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT!!! She is a perfectionist and the cake arrived better than I could have ever imagined it -my guests were very impressed - the best part there were NO leftovers!!! We ordered a cake for 125 people it was four layers and there wasn't an extra slice in the place it was to die for !

Not only was my wedding cake a extreme success but Dianne and I also worked in secret on a groom's cake to suprise my husband- she took my zany story and a few images from the internet and created an Italian masterpiece- I great big bowl of spaghetti and meatballs CAKE. The entire cake was edible as she does't belive in filler- and my husband raved about the cream cheese frosting and the moistness of the red velvet cake for months afterwards- he was so surprised.

We are fast approaching our one year anniversary in Ocotber and are very excited to enjoy our wedding cake once again. In the meantime, becasue of her incredible talent, dedication to detail and professionalism we have decided to hire Dianne once again for our baby shower in August !! I imagine as long as she is in in business we will be ordering our daugther's birthday cakes for many years to come from her too.

It was an absolute peasure working with Diane. She took quality time with me and helped me to design the cake for my Son and his wife's wedding to a perfection. When I wasn't exactly sure about something she was able to guide me to making the right choice and the end result was just beautiful! Not only was the cake made to perfection it was absolutely delicious!
I also selected three different flavors (mint chocolate chip, almond with raspberry filling, and lemon with raspberry filling and everyone who had the cake all loved the flavors.
I would highly recommend Diane to all my family and friends for future events. I am so blessed to have met her and would love to work with her in the future.

Please allow me and my new bride, Ruby Zoe, to share our wedding cake experience with you. Let's just start by saying Ruby is very particular about what she wants, which in our case was a four/five tier cake with buttercream icing and sugared flowers. Just 90 miles north of NYC and within shouting distance of Culinary Institute of America, how difficult can that request be one might ask? Shop around, it ain't easy to find. We called and met with several bakeries only to be informed that the weight of the sugared flowers is just too much to be supported by the buttercream, and that the only option was fondant icing. (or so we were told)

The only catch was Ruby had already found the EXACTLY the cake she wanted, which was buttercream with sugared flowers. The dilemma is that the baker was not in New York, but actually a little closer to the Boston area. I was initially rather incredulous that podunk as New York City may be, one would think it had the talent and resources to produce the cake that Ruby wanted. At Bottom, we could not find a single baker up to the task.

Finally, I got fed up with all the alternatives we were being offered, like fondant icing, or using styrofoam on a few of the layers to give more support for the flowers. Ruby was not at all happy with these alternatives, and all I wanted to do was get her the cake she wanted for our special day. We decided to take a car trip from the Hudson Valley to Worchester area of Massachusets to meet with The Cake Lady, Mrs. Dianne Rockwell. We left our meeting with Dianne confidant and elated that we were going to get the cake that we wanted aesthetically, and that our guests would be impressed with not only the design of the beautiful flowers, but the tiered flavors of the cake. (pistachio with Cocoa icing, Lemon with Raspberry, and Coconut with pineapple) They loved it!!! We even ordered a large enough cake that everyone was able to take a small box home with samplings of the cake.
