Choosing Erin for the cake was the easiest part of wedding planning. We tasted cakes at several places around town and Erin had the best tasting cake and the best pricing. So it was a no brainer. The cake turned out beautiful and the taste was even better. My photographer, Matt Montalvo, who is also great, even asked who made it, saying it was the some of the best wedding cake he's had. So that sure said a lot. Get the chocolate guiness stout, it was a hit!

Erin was such a pleasure to work with. She created a 4 tier cake for us that was not only beautiful but delicious! We had dulce de leche which was my favorite and we had so many guest rave about the white chocolate and strawberries flavor. I felt her cakes were moist without being overly sweet. I'm a sweet addict myself so I was very picky of what I wanted our wedding cake to taste like. When I met with Erin she gave me so many choices that it was a very hard to narrow it down to 2 because they were all very delicious. My fiancé couldn't make it to our meeting because he had a doctors appointment and wasn't feeling good. Erin was sweet enough to give me a piece of all the flavors so he could taste as well. The cake looked beautiful, Erin is very talented. I know I would recommend her to friends and would definitely use her in future and can't wait to have our anniversary cake she provided us

Erin is SO GREAT! She is so reasonably priced for the absolutely amazing quality of work that she provides. Both of our cakes turned out better than I could have expected and she goes above and beyond. She provided us with little golfer figurines for my husband's cake and all kinds of little accessories that other cake places told us they would charge for. I'm almost positive she made a cake bigger than I requested just to make it 4 tiers, which I wanted. Most other cake places would not do this for me and told me it was impossible - yet somehow Erin made it happen! I highly recommend her!

The cake which Erin baked for our daughter's wedding was not only beautiful but absolutely
delicious. We also ordered baked goods for a dessert bar of lemon tarts, mini cheese cakes, chocolate chip cookies and Mexican wedding cookies, there were very few left at the end of the evening. Everyone commented on how delicious the cake was. We had a little bit left and it is still moist and delicious a week later.

Erin is by far one of the best choices we made for our wedding. She is such a genuine, caring, sweet person. My fiance and I had a pleasant tasting at her home. We had a hard time narrowing down the flavors because they were all so delicious but we finally agreed on the Italian Cream and Guiness Stout. She worked with me and my vision for our love bird themed wedding cake. Even up to the week before, she was so patient and understanding because of all the issues I ran into. She also helped keep my finance's boat cake a surprise. He loved it! We absolutely loved the final product and we received so many compliments at the wedding and even afterward. We were both craving the wedding cake days later! I can't say enough about Erin, her professionalism and just overall character and her cakes are yummy!!

Oh.My.Gosh. From the moment I tasted Erin's cakes, I knew I had found my wedding cake vendor. I already knew that I wanted a carrot cake for the wedding cake and hers was by far the moistest most delicious one I have ever eaten. Full of spice and chunks of nuts, plus the richest cream cheese frosting ever! When we went for the tasting, she apologized and said that some of the slices were previously frozen. When I tasted the carrot cake knowing it wasn't even fresh that day and it still blew all others out of the water, I was sold. My husband wanted a German chocolate cake, but after tasting her Guinness Stout cake, he had to have it. In fact, she was so flexible that we created our own custom creation of Guinness Stout cake with coconut pecan frosting, strawberry preserve filling and covered in chocolate ganache. Plus she threw in 12 tuxedo chocolate covered strawberries free! She also makes a separate anniversary cake top so you don't have to worry about saving yours from the wedding.

Aside from just the incredible quality and cake flavors she provides, Erin is so sweet and really cares about your special day. My cakes were delivered promptly and set up beautifully. I wanted a woodland cake with little mushrooms and moss and ivy and she created it perfectly. Her meringue mushrooms were delicious too! And to top it off, she is so affordable. No joke. I cannot thank her enough and you will not regret choosing Erin's Custom Cakes!

Erin is the BOMB. She was referred to us by our wedding consultant, Rosa of Austin Wedding Planners by Rosa. I must admit that I don't really have a sweet tooth. Of course I do enjoy sweets but I'd say that the wedding cake wasn't something I was (at first) very passionate about. Therefore, I gave Erin a lot of creative freedom. Which she appreciated, and definitely PAID OFF. I can't tell you how many compliments we got on our cake. And cookies.

I live in New York so unfortunately my husband and I were unable to go do the fun cake tasting. My little sister did, though, and had a hard time telling us which flavor to go with because they were all so incredible. In the end we went with 2: Vanilla & White Chocolate Raspberry. The best part is: the vanilla part was RAINBOW colors - our wedding was very colorful and this was amazing! Our guests loved it. The design of the cake looked just like the wedding invitations. It was amazing - she blew us all away.

We also had cookies per the groom's request: Mexican wedding cookies, peanut butter/chocolate, chocolate chip, dulce de leche, and the best: piñata cookies! They looked like little donkeys and when you opened it up, mini M&Ms came out. I asked if she could make them and she didn't hesitate.

Thank you Erin for being amazing!

Erin came recommended from friends of mine. The tasting waa perfect and she executed our vision of the looks of the cakes (grooms cake was decided by talking through it at the tasting and the brides cake design was already predetermined with a photo sent in advance) at the reception flawlessly. And.... The cakes tasted even better at the reception than at the tasting. Dulce de leche with chocolate ganache for the groom's cake and Italian cream for the bride's cake. Erin also provides a takeaway topper for the newlyweds! So wonderful!
