Our cake/cupcake combination was delicious and exactly as promised. Our guests loved the different cupcake flavors. By the day after the wedding there was not a crumb left. The cake design was done simply and to our specifications. It was perfect for our beach themed wedding.

Everything started out great with my wedding cake with Debra. I signed a contract to have her make a small tier cake and 60 cupcakes for my wedding and a contract for her to make a grooms cake for my rehearsal dinner. I found a picture of a very nice Boston RedSox cake that I wanted to recreate for my fiance. My bridesmaids went to pick up the grooms cake on Friday and it was the worst cake I've ever seen come out of a bakery. First, it was wrapped in saran wrap. I've never gotten a cake from a bakery wrapped in saran wrap instead of being stored in a box. Secondly, the cake was not what I had asked for. It was a hideous recreation of the cake I showed Debra. She even left the sides of the cake blank and the manager told us Debra couldn't tell from the picture what was on the sides of the cake. She should have contacted me if she had questions while making the cake. After the grooms cake debacle, my mother and sister drove to the bakery to look at my wedding cake. Debra refused to talk to my mother or sister at the bakery and to this day (12 days later) she has yet to return my phone calls. My mother and sister were able to see my wedding cake/cupcakes on Friday (the day before my wedding) and there was a ribbon around the bottom of the cake which I specifically said I did not want, not to mention it was Navy blue, not Royal blue which was my color. The wedding cake was better than the grooms cake but still sloppily done. Finally, not only did the Groom's cake look like a 5 year old did it, it was the worst tasting cake I've ever had. I ordered vanilla cake with buttercream frosting. The cake had no taste whatsoever and the frosting was NOT buttercream. It was whip cream that the manager insisted was buttercream. Needless to say, once we tasted the groom's cake and found out my wedding cake/cupcakes were made out of the same stuff we did not pick up the cake on my wedding day. Luckily the girls at Fresh Market were able to make me cake/cupcakes that were delicious.

We absolutely loved our cupcakes for our May 17th wedding. The flavors were great (key lime cake, chocolate grand mariner cake, and pina colada cake) and were a huge hit with everyone. We will definitely keep coming back for more!

Icing on the Cakes provided our 3-tier wedding cake and our dessert table. The cake is truly amazing as were the desserts. Here are my reasons for giving a less than perfect score:

1) I paid with both check and credit card, Icing on the Cakes ended up losing my information and the fact that we had paid in full...we had several weeks of panic that our money was lost and we would still need to pay for the cake (even though we had already paid in full)

2) We ordered different flavors for each cake layer. The bottom layer was correct, but the middle layer was supposed to be the top tier. We won't find out the top flavor until our 1st anniversary...

Overall, I would recommend Icing on the Cakes, but I would forewarn to keep close records on your tab!

Our wedding cake was awesome! We got lots of compliments on it, and it looked great! We had also ordered a groom's cake, which was really neat, but it ended up being the wrong flavor....I emailed Debra about this and she never responded to the mistake. It was still delicious, just disappointing I did not get the flavor that was in the contract. I do however like that this business is not run out of a home--as most cake bakers in this area are.

We met Debra at the OBX Wedding Expo in January and she was so sweet and made us feel comfortable. She was offering a deal where you get a free groom's cake if you book with her at the Expo which we took advantage of.

Our wedding was 5/20/13 and both cakes (groom's cake and wedding cake) were AMAZING. Both were so moist and delicious. The wedding cake was key lime on the top and bottom layers with a marble cake in the middle. I believe the groom's cake was german chocolate which was also delicious. All of our guests were raving about the cakes and I personally can't wait to eat our top layer of our cake for our 1-year anniversary!

The wedding cake design was BEAUTIFUL. And although it wasn't EXACTLY what I asked for, it was still beautiful!

Overall, highly recommend Debra from Icing on the Cakes!!

We used Argyle's (Icing on the Cake) for our wedding cake. Things began ok, we had contact with Debra for about 9 months regarding our wedding. She was really good about pricing and email correspondence. We got married in Kinnakeet but the day of the wedding, we drove to the other end of the island to pick up my flowers, cake and get my hair styled. The 2 tired cake for my husband and I looked great, it was exactly as we talked about. The cupcakes were less than desired. Several of the were turned over on their side in the box and some cupcakes had lots of glitter and some had almost none. My mom was with me and inquired about the overturned cupcakes and the botched icing. Debra was quite rude to my mom and offered no solution to the poor work. I probably would have gotten over the cupcakes but it was her poor customer no- service and the way that she spoke to my mom and I that was unacceptable. When I later sent her an email to tell her my disappointment, she said that the cupcakes looked bad because I picked them up myself instead of having them delivered. She actually suggested that I tipped the cupcakes over when I put them in the back of our SUV ! The cupcakes were turned over when I arrived to the restaurant that morning. My family owns a home at the Outer banks and we used to eat at Argyle's when we visit. We haven't been back since and won't patronize their business due to the poor service.

Icing on the Cakes, a subsidiary of Argyles, provided us with some fantastic cupcakes for our Halloween-themed wedding. Debra was awesome to work with and did a fantastic job creating delicious cupcakes in many flavors and fillings. She went the extra mile to add little Halloween-esque notions on top of them...bats, black cats, witch hats and spiders. There wasn't a single cupcake left by the end of the event!! As cupcakes are becoming more popular for weddings, and it was hard to find an OBX vendor that would do cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding cake, your best bet is Icing on the Cakes!!

Debra made a white chocolate cake with italian meringue buttercreme frosting for my wedding in Duck, NC. She was patient as I decided on a flavor and design. It was so easy working with her and the finished product was amazing. I provided a picture of the design I wanted via email and provided ribbon and fresh flowers for the design. Debra did the rest! The cake looked exactly like the design I sent her and tasted fantastic. Guests at my wedding were eating multiple slices of cake because it was so wonderful. Thank you to Debra for this fabulous cake and wonderful experience!
