We purchased a three tier cake: 6" vanilla wheat free with lemon, 8" fresh banana with cream cheese, and a 10" vanilla with raspberry with cream cheese frosting (not as pretty as butter cream, but totally worth the looks taste trade off). The cake was beautiful and tasted fantastic a bit pricey, but so worth it! I am wheat-free and so are several of my guests so they very much appreciated being able to have some cake.

Great cakes! We choose the banana and it was amazing! We are not cake people normally but fell in love with their cakes. They are a little expensive but I would say worth the price. They also don't do fondant decoration so if you’re looking for that it may not be for you. But, believe me you wouldn't want to mess up their cakes with fondant, their icing is amazing too!! The only down fall we found was that they don't deliver for smaller cakes or orders under a certain amount. However, most places had that policy.

We got our wedding cupcakes from Icing on the Cake and they were fantastic. We opted to just order straight off their specialty cupcakes, and not get anything special frostings or designs done, because the specialty cupcakes were so delicious and looked incredible on their own!

The flavors were all so delicious that it was hard to agree on which ones we wanted to have. The only bummer was their carmel frosting isn't a "summer" frosting - I guess it doesn't stand up to the heat - so they wouldn't let us order those, even though we were getting married indoors. They do have a standard to uphold, so I understand!

We received numerous compliments on the cupcakes and were very pleased that they were all so moist and delicious. They were delivered on time and in perfect condition.

The only downside is, you pay per cupcake for tastings. There is no private tastings or anything of the sort. It didn't bother us a whole lot because the bakery was adorable and everything was good that we just would little by little purchase different flavors and keep a list. But I could see if you didn't have that luxury, it might be hard to do. You can call ahead and place an order to make certain your flavors will be there - which we often did - but there really isn't a place inside to taste them (it is a very small, but VERY cute bakery). I would recommend them!!!!

I've been going to Icing on the Cake for birthdays or cookies since I was a little kid, and have always loved them. They have the BEST sweets, just delicious. When I got engaged I immediately knew that I wanted them to do the cake -- BUT, I didn't want a typical stacked, dramatic wedding cake -- I wanted three single tier smaller cakes that I would display on three separate cake stands of varying heights. At first they tried to sell me on the monster tower cakes, but I stayed firm and they agreed to do the simple little cakes instead. This was a MUCH better deal price wise (I'm sorry, but the real "wedding cakes" are out of control expensive and just not worth it to me). We picked up the cakes on the day of the wedding and they looked cute and tested delicious, exactly what I wanted. I'm very glad I went with Icing on the Cake and highly recommend them!

Having been an Icing on the Cake loyal for years I could not imagine another cake at our wedding. The carrot cake was lovely and all it should be. The chocolate cake, however, did not live up to its previous standards. A different filling was used in the sheet cakes than in the round which was a disappointment. I am not sorry we had our IOTC carrot cake but I do think we should have been informed that the sheet cakes would not resemble what we had tasted in the round.

Icing on the Cake has the BEST cake I have ever tasted. I am so glad we found this place in time for our wedding. We ended up going with cupcakes which made it way more affordable than getting a regular wedding cake. Everyone had so much fun tasting the different flavors. Way more fun than getting a slice of whatever is placed in front of you. We had 6 different flavors and they were all amazing. Even the tasting was fantastic. We tasted so many different kinds and even got to take home what we didn't eat. I would higly recommend Icing on the Cake for any event, and cupcakes are a great way to go for a fun twist or if you'd like to save a little bit. I cant wait to go back and get cupcakes with my husband, every year on our anniversary.

Our wedding cake was delicious! We had Chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and white cake with raspberry cream cheese filling, and buttercream frosting. They were easy to work with, but called us two weeks before the wedding to tell us they forgot to charge us extra for the chocolate mousse which was a little annoying. They were also late delivering the cake and the colors of the decorative icing were not right. Overall a good experience.

The cake was delicious! We got two flavors: vanilla with lemon filling, and chocolate with rasperry filling. Both were moist and tasty. We also got buttercream icing with a delicate scroll pattern. The cake looked simple and elegant. They also worked with us to use a smaller tiered cake for the cutting, but have extra sheet cake for serving to keep costs down. The one qualm I have is that we had tons of cake left over, so I don't know if our guests just didn't eat it or if they estimate their slice size super big or what. In any event, we enjoyed eating it over the next few days and gave leftovers to friends and family, so I don't think I would change anything. We now stop in for cupcakes whenever we are in the neighborhood.

Note: If you want fondant, don't go here. They don't do it.
