Besides cakes, what other types of desserts do you provide?

What additional services do you provide?
Consultations, On-site Delivery, On-site Setup, Tastings
Do you provide customary cakes, such as Croquembouche?
No
Are you licensed by the state health department?
Yes
Do you offer private tastings or open house tastings?
We offer private tastings by appointment. You are welcome to select four or five flavors from the Menu to taste when we meet, so that you can get as close as possible to your favorites right away.
What are your tasting hours?
By appointment. We can meet during the week, days and evenings as well as many weekends, at your convenience.
Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
Cakes are priced by the slice, based on the number of guests who attend the wedding. The base cost is the price per slice for the flavor you choose times the number of guests who attend the wedding. Many simple and elegant designs are included in the base cost, while other designs are more costly because they require more time.
Does the price include the top tier of the cake?
If you would like to save the top tier, that is free. If you would prefer to have a fresh anniversary cake, that is free. Either choice is a gift.

What (if any) special ingredients, such as fresh fruits or farm-fresh butter, do you use in your cakes?
Our cakes are made with European buttercream which is light, luxurious and definitely worth the calories. We also use Belgian chocolate, fresh fruits, AA Grade butter, Grade A eggs and Nielsen-Massey pure vanilla extract. We make our own fondant, which contains no preservatives and has a delicate taste.
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
There is some variation, depending upon the intricacy of the design, but all cakes are fresh and moist when served.
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
Three or fewer. We believe that everything about your wedding cake is important, so we carefully limit the number of commitments we accept, so each cake receives our full attention.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
Yes, we will help you coordinate fresh flowers for the wedding cake with your florist. Either we or your florist can style fresh flowers on your wedding cake, depending upon your preference.
What (if any) cake accessories, such as a cake stand or cake cutter, do you rent out?
Round and square cake stands are available to rent to display your wedding cake.
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
Yes we do deliver. The cost of delivery and set up of the wedding cake varies with the location and complexity of the set-up.

Gretchen was a wonderful person to work with! She is a fabulous communicator, she truly cares about what your special day is going to look like, and she is incredibly genuine - not that easy to come by these days! Gretchen worked some with my mother-in-law on the cake, and I was so impressed to see how perfectly she brought my vision to life through the cake she made - it was exactly what I wanted.

Gretchen made us a gorgeous cake for our wedding day, and actually artfully and creatively utilized a custom cake topper and a custom base that we had asked she use for our cake, as well as flowers that our florist provided for her. Gretchen truly bakes 'from the heart' in her beautiful, at-home licensed kitchen, and the cake was everything I could have asked for - and it was delicious! When we visited with Gretchen, she was warm, welcoming, and sincere!

About a week ago, Gretchen sent me and my fiancé a gorgeous picture of our cake at the venue, along with a note regarding how much she enjoyed working with us. I would recommend her to anyone, and would certainly contact her again for other events!

Gretchen is an absolute love and everyone at my wedding RAVED about the cake. She is so sweet and kind and so simple to work with. I also love supporting local business and felt so great about working with Gretchen. You can tell she loves her clients and truly listens to what you say to make sure your cake is EXACTLY how you want it. I wanted fresh flowers on my cake and she did a phenomenal job. Everything from the tasting down to the wedding day, it was a pleasure to work with Gretchen every step of the way. We can't wait to get our fresh anniversary cake on our anniversary :) HIGHLY recommend!

We used Enchanted Wedding Cakes for our wedding and guests were raving it about the delicious cake after the wedding. We knew after first tasting it at our venue's tasting event that we wanted cake from here. We made the right choice! Gretchen, the owner, met with us and helped us select flavors and designs for the cake. It turned out beautifully and it tasted amazing. We even received a gorgeous photo of our cake at the venue from Gretchen in the mail. We would recommend this place to anyone!

Our venue included the cake in the wedding package however after going to the tasting we were not impressed with the cake that was included. We met Gretchen at the tasting as well and found out that if we chose to use her services then our venue would credit us the difference of not using their cake vendor. Her cake was DELICIOUS and looked beautiful. We were going for the rustic theme and decided to use the exact cake as her display at the tasting for our wedding. We chose pumpkin spice and red velvet and both were amazing! She was also extremely fast at getting back to us with any questions and very polite. We highly recommend her services.

5 stars!!!

Gretchen baked our cake for our wedding July 6, 2013. It was such a pleasure working with Gretchen. She is so detail oriented and didn't miss a beat. She listened to all our requests and gave us very useful feedback. We also rented a beautiful cake stand from her. Our cake came out FANTASTIC. Our guests (all 150) actually finished off the cake at breakfast the next morning because people loved it so much. Many people said it was the best wedding cake they ever had. We had four tiers all with vanilla butter cream frosting (from bottom to top):
1. Chocolate cake with dark chocolate truffle filling
2. White cake with strawberries and Grand Marnier filling
3. Yellow cake with lime-tequila filling (margarita cake)
4. Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting

I can't recommend Enchanted Wedding Cakes enough! We tried several different big name company bakers before we met Gretchen and it was an obvious choice. The cake was perfectly moist and fresh.

Our wedding cake was hands down the most delicious cake I have EVER had, and guests felt the same way! It was so gorgeous, too, that guests were asking if it was real! At our first meeting, Gretchen spent lots of time with us going over different cake options and decorations, and she had lots of samples for us to try. She was very upfront about costs and offered suggestions on ways to stay in budget. I would gladly recommend her to anyone.

Gretchen was wonderful to deal with and made herself available to answer any questions for my husband and I while we were planning our wedding. My two children came to the cake tasting and had a lot of fun being able to put their 2 sense into the decision. Her hand made sugar flowers made a such a perfect splash of our wedding color on our cake. People don't generally comment on how a cake tastes at a wedding they more often comment on how it looks; well at our wedding they raved about how great both flavors of cake were and loved the way it was decorated. I have already recommended her to several people and hope that they take my advice! Thank you again Gretchen!

Plus it tasted fantastic! It was beautiful, and I would recommend Enchanted Wedding Cakes to everyone. It was definately worth the price which I found reasonable.

Simply put, Enchanted Wedding Cakes produced the best cake that my wife or I have ever tasted--a sentiment shared by many of our guests. Gretchen, the owner and pastry chef for Enchanted Wedding Cakes, produced a beautiful cake that was delicate and flavorful, and she accomplished this remarkable feat while being extremely responsive to and considerate of our wishes. Her sugar flowers (and autumn colored leaves) were the artistic highlight of the cake and, to our great surprise and relief, survived some accidental rough handling on our part. We anticipate keeping these flowers as keepsakes for many, many years.

Enchanted Wedding Cakes may be slightly more expensive than some of the other larger bakeries in the greater Boston area, but the additional quality--in appearance and taste--is well worth it.

In addition, Gretchen was extremely professional when we would go for the cake tastings. She is one of the nicest people I have met and was very easy to work with. Anything I wanted she tried to accomodate me as best as she could. I would highly recommend using her.

What better review can there be for a wedding cake, than not a single slice being left behind? We had three different flavors of cake: one for each tier of our cake. As far as I could tell, guests were going back for seconds and thirds in order to taste all three. Our cake was elegant and beautiful, but the exquisite flavor, velvety texture, delicate crumb, and insane moistness of Gretchen's are undeniably the reason to go to Enchanted Wedding Cakes!

Gretchen was absolutely professional: every phone call and email were returned in an efficient manner. We purchased and designed our cake at our tasting: her samples were THAT good. I can't wait for our first anniversary when she makes us our free cake. And my husband is already thinking of parties to throw, just so he can have another "Enchanted" cake!

We were a little confusing to Gretchen, I tihnk, because we did not know what we wanted other than super incredibly delicious cake.

We got that.

And then some. She worked with buttercream for us instead of fondant, and gave us very simple elegant cakes. Her flavors are truly amazing. Our decorations were minimal, but she had to learn a new technique to manage them. She communicated well with us and negotiated a fair price for that technique. It came off wonderfully! She worked hard to make our cake topper fit, as well, since it wasn't designed for such a thing.

She works with our site often, so I had no worries about the setup or cutting or anything like that. All I had to do was eat!

Her style is elegant, while our style is geeky, but the result was fantastic. If you're going for elegant, definitely look into her gum flowers; I was amazed at the detail.

Flavor was my number one priority, and I got a truly excellent cake.

From the initial consultation to the final delivery of the cake working with Gretchen was a true pleasure and very easy. Gretchen is warm and welcoming, she makes a lot of creative suggestions while still allowing the bride and groom to make each cake their own. The cake itself was perfect from a visual standpoint and it was equally delicious.

My husband and I could not have asked for a more perfect, tasty wedding cake. It was such a pleasure working with Gretchen Ellison. Her professionalism, dedication, and attentiveness to detail are just a few of the many positive qualities she possesses.

Gretchen took her customizations of our wedding cake a step further by taking up the challenge of decorating the cake to mimic the origami folds of my wedding dress. She constructed intricate folded pieces of sugar that simply captured the essence of my dress. Everyone at the reception was in awe.

I would highly recommend Enchanted Wedding Cakes to anyone looking for an above average wedding cake.

Look no further for your wedding cake vendor. Gretchen Elllison/Enchanted Wedding Cakess is the consummate professional - perfectionist, supremely organized, highly responsive, with the highest degree of reliability. The cake was absolutely gorgeous (her own award-winning design). The beauty of the cake was exceeded only by the amazing taste of the cake. Guests were gushng over the design and asking for second helpings! An Enchanted Wedding Cake will become the focal point of your wedding. Our wedding cake was that exquisite.

Gretchen with Enchanted Wedding Cakes created an absolute dream of a cake for our wedding. When we met with Gretchen for our first consultation, we had some visions of what we wanted our cake to look and taste like. Gretchen immediately adapted to our desires. We were hoping to use a different kind of topping on our cake, and even though she hadn't worked with that specific topping before, she did extensive research and went to many great lengths to see that the cake would be executed perfectly. And it was! It was beautiful, elegant, and was in total sync with the feel of our wedding.
And most importantly - the cake was DELICIOUS! Addicting, to be exact. We chose two different cake-filling flavor combinations, and both were out of the this world.
I could not imagine having any one else bake our wedding cake!
Thank you Gretchen,
Rosey and Tony, Boston MA

It has taken us a few months to write a review because of our busy work schedules, but we felt that this was the least we could do to show her our appreciation. We got married on March 26, 2011 and had the pleasure of working with Gretchen to create our wedding cake. She always responded very quickly and she was very sweet to work with. Her cakes are so light and moist--exactly what a cake should be. We chose the mango and orange blossom cake and everyone raved about it. She is such a perfectionist and it showed in the quality of her work. Her sugar flower work is just beautiful. We still have our peony flowers displayed and it still looks just as good as on our wedding day. Thank you, Gretchen.

Gretchen is a delight to work with. She is highly organized, thorough, a complete artist and her kitchen is SPOTLESS. She has a number of cakes on display so you can understand height, design, color, and composition. In my case I had a very specific idea of what I was looking for and I can honestly say that when I walked into the reception and saw the cake it took my breath away!

I also greatly appreciate the fact that the cake tasted absolutely delicious. My husband loves cake and he is still talking about it as are my guests. How many weddings do you go to where the cake is beautiful but not very tasty? It won't happen with Gretchen.

I highly recommend her and cannot wait to attend another wedding where she is the cake artist.

Gretchen Ellison, from Enchanted Wedding Cakes, is wonderful and her cakes are gorgeous AND delicious!! Gretchen welcomed us into her home, where she bakes and designs all her cakes. She was unbelievably welcoming and incredibly kind. She worked with us to understand exactly what we wanted our cake to look like, she showed us many sample designs (photographs and models). She baked, specifically for us, a few of her flavors to allow us to decide what flavors to include in our cake.
The cake came out beautifully! Her hard work and attention to detail really showed in the sugar flowers, which she perfectly matched to the flowers present at the wedding reception. Each flavor we included was delicious!
Gretchen added a very special touch by sending us a congratulations letter with a photograph of our cake. Very nice! She also sends the bride and groom a top layer of a cake as a 1 year anniversary gift!

Gretchen's baking and decorating ability is exquisite and we were grateful that there was some cake left over so that we could enjoy it for 2 days following our reception. She created lilly of the valley sugar paste flowers that looked truly lifelike and was able to incorporate the cake topper used in my parent's wedding cake from 1944, even though a custom sugar base had to be created. We can't wait for our 1st anniversary cake from Gretchen!

Gretchen is the most amazing person you will ever work with! She had a big task ahead of her with a bride and a groom who hate sweets in general and a guest list with never-ending allergies. She took obsessive amounts of notes in order to make sure everything was 100% perfect and was the queen of calling and emailing whenever she had an idea to make the cake even more gorgeous and delicious. Also, she gives a discount if your cake is over $800 and you received a referral card from your vendor. You will not be disappointed if you choose Enchanted Wedding Cakes!

These wedding cakes are to die for. Most wedding cakes are dry and are really only at the wedding for looks or tradition, but not this cake. You will be extremely satisfied with this. My wedding cake was not only the most beautiful cake that I have ever seen, it was the best tasting cake I have ever tasted. To this day, 3 years after our wedding, my husband and I drool over the thought of it. Also, in the price of the cake, you receive a free anniversary cake. No need to worry about freezing the top of your cake, which freezes beautifully by the way, you will get a brand new fresh one a year later. My only wish is I could get one every year for the rest of my life (If not more)! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! And, Gretchen is the nicest woman you will ever meet. Extremely willing to work with you! Go for a cake testing today! You won't regret it! My husband and I may get remarried just for the cake! Ha Ha Ha!

Gretchen made our wedding cake and it was beautiful! We told her what we wanted, and the cake came out better than we had imagined. We had bought a fairly large and heavy cake topper that we were worried would be too big for the cake. But Gretchen told us not to worry about it and that she would find a way to make it work. It looked awesome. Gretchen is the epitome of professionalism. She is very organized, detailed and prompt. The cake was the one aspect of the wedding I knew I would not have to worry about since it was in good hands.

Gretchen was a pleasure to work with! She made our wedding cake for our wedding on September 23, 2012 at The Harrington Farm. We went to the tasting with a picture os a design we had seen online and even though she hadn't done a cake like it came out great!!! The flavors of our cake were lemon and chocolate layers with raspberry preserves and the cake was excellent! All of our guests commenented on how great it tasted. We look forward to eating our first anniversary cake from Gretchen next year!
Thank you!

I loved everything about our experience with Gretchen at Enchanted Wedding Cakes. From the tasting (it was SO hard to choose--every single flavor was delicious!) to picking out the style (she gave expert guidance and really listened) to the rave reviews from our guests, it was fabulous! The cake looked and tasted better than I could have dreamed...definitely recommend them to any bride and groom!

Gretchen is a true professional - she was extremely organized and well-prepared for our cake tasting at her house. We went in knowing what we wanted our cake to look like and she executed it perfectly and it tasted great (I'd definitely recommend the Strawberry Grand Marnier). Also, although we chose a simpler cake, we had the pleasure of seeing her more elaborate cakes - again, they looked perfect. She also has so many other wonderful flavors to choose from. I would definitely recommend her!

Gretchen was a delight to work with and created a beautiful cake for us. Our vision of what we wanted evolved through our discussions with her and in the end, she created exactly what we asked for. Plus, it was DELICIOUS! Thanks so much, Gretchen.

Gretchen is great! Communication was very clear, and I did not have to double check anything with her because I feel completely confident with her delivery. I completely recommend her to anyone who's looking for a great tasting cake, and a peace of mind during the planning process! She will listen, she will deliver what you ask for, and she will compromise to make you happy. I typically do not give a 5/5 stars, and the reason I give 5/5 stars in the "Quality of Service" and Responsiveness" areas in this feedback was because I felt like Gretchen exceeded my expectations in those areas. My wedding cake was classy and beautiful, and had guests wowed and talked about in the days after my wedding. Thank you Gretchen!

Gretchen was extremely professional, and was very accommodating to our thoughts on the cake. She made choosing a style and design very easy, with many piping samples, cake samples, and tasting samples. I appreciated her different fondant and butter-cream choices. The cake was not only beautiful, but delicious! We had many good comments from our wedding guests!

Gretchen was extremely easy to get in touch with. The quality of her cake was amazing and everyone at the wedding commented on how good the cake was. Also, one of the special things is that they give you the option of keeping the top of your cake or getting a new top on your one year anniversary. . how great is that! She answered all my questions and was very helpful and realistic in her options. She made you feel special and a top priority!

Just thinking about how yummy Gretchen's cakes are makes my mouth water all over again. We had her chocolate cake with cappuccino chocolate truffle filling and got TONS of compliments on it. The cake turned out absolutely gorgeous and we were so pleased with the result of her efforts.

I only had one complaint in the entire process. When I provided her with a photo of my inspiration for our wedding cake, she spent several emails telling me why the design I wanted wouldn't work because I didn't want fondant. It would have been helpful if she had immediately started suggesting solutions that would work, rather than focusing so much on the problem. As I said, the end result was absolutely fantastic and completely worth the small headache. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gretchen to another bride.
