Mary was very flexible and willing to work within our budget and restrictions (I am allergic to eggs, so we had our cake as vegan). Her cakes were all very moist and delicious, even the vegan cake!

She also has no cake tasting fee (and gave us 6 slices of cake to take home), even if you don't book her for the wedding itself.

We also love that she will provide us with our 1-year anniversary cake free of charge! We were very happy with this vendor and would recommend her to others as well.

JMC is 110% perfect. They baked our groom's and wedding cake visions to life (and they delivered our cakes to our venue) 1. They are sweet, accommodating and super budget friendly. 2. Their cake is DELICIOUS!!! We got a ton of compliments about how yummy it was, and many people wanted a second helping. We went with the snow white cake and strawberry reduction filling (real strawberries) and our groom's cake was chocolate with Balieys filling (most people preferred the white) 3. our cakes were seriously perfect. More than what I imagined them to be. They made a boombox groom's cake for us - and the detail was just stunning. My hubby was blown away (it was a surprise for him). Our wedding cake was ruffled umbre with beautiful loose sugar flowers. Such a happy little bride. Thank you JMC!

I got my wedding cake here. During my consultation I showed Mary a picture of a cake and told her what I wanted adjusted, and when I walked into my reception hall I saw a cake that was exactly what I had in my head. It was perfect.

We got chocolate with raspberry buttercream and pink champagne with a strawberry reduction. The chocolate cake was amazing and disappeared from the cake table, but there were a few of the pink champagne left, for some reason it taste quite as delicious as I remembered it tasting during the consultation. However, it was still very good and I was very pleased with the results.

I couldn't have for more and the cake was very reasonably priced.

We searched high and low for a place that would make a tasty, nice looking sugar free cake, and Mary at Jefferson Market exceeded our expectations! It was lovely and reasonably priced. We had non-sugar-free sheet cakes served to our guests as well. Everyone said our cake was tasty.

This was the best cake I ever had at a wedding! We received so many compliments. They use all natural local products. Who wouldn't love chocolate cake with salted caramel filling! Just a great little neighborhood bakery!

We weren't that excited about having a traditional tiered cake and my husband had the idea to make a cake inspired by a video game he enjoyed, so we ordered an untraditional cake from Jefferson Market for our wedding inspired by the video game Portal. Our cake consisted of two round "portal" cakes, one outlined in orange and the other in blue. Bride and groom figures were formed from fondant, with the legs going into one portal, and the heads and torsos coming out of the other. (This was the only fondant on the cake.)

Mary was awesome and they seemed excited to do this nontraditional cake for us. I was slightly worried the fondant figures might not look great, but they came out very cute and we received many compliments. My niece was excited to "eat a piece with the lady". More importantly, it tasted great! We chose a lemon cake with berry filling and it was delicious. I can't wait to order another slice! Also, they offer complimentary tasting when you order cakes with them, which helped us decide on the flavor.

Jefferson Market & Cakery was great! Loved the team! I really just wanted a good looking cake that tasted great - no fancy filling, etc. I found a cake design on Pinterest that I loved and the Cakery replicated it without a problem! Also, most importantly, the cake tasted great.

Ali made our wedding cake. I do not have adjectives enough to do justice to her baking! We wanted a beautiful wedding cake that tasted AMAZING. Our cake was gorgeous and absolutely scrumptuous! I recommend her for weddings or any other occasion. If you can, go to her shop and eat some pastries.

I want to start by saying she did the cake for my moms wedding in July of 2007 and it was perfect. This is part of the reason I went with her. For my wedding in May of 2008, the cake still tasted great, however the attention to detail wasnt there, and customer service went down hill as well. I believe the difference is in March she bought the Jefferson Market, and her attention to her brides and cakes diminished. After March I had a hard time getting a hold of her, and for my wedding cake, she forgot the simplest, yet most discussed and to me most important detail, which I had stressed to her in every single conversation. And when I addressed the issue after the wedding, I was told that she spent hours on the cake, it was an honest mistake and everything else was right, so too bad. I wasnt expecting a full refund or anything crazy. A sincere apology, and a refund of any amount to show that she did stand behind her cakes would have satisfied me. From the moment I walked in for my tasting I said that the most important thing to me was to not have the cakes sitting on top of each other. I know a lot of people like it, but it is not my thing, and I was not going to have it. I wanted pillars, and my second choice was on cascading stands. When looking at the books I decided I also wanted a petal shaped cake. Mary did not have any pillars for that cake shape. So we said wed figure it out, and still booked that day. My mom thought she knew someone who had them, we talked to them, looked for them, couldnt find them. I spent hours searching the web and E-bay to no avail. In February, we e-mailed with Mary five times trying to figure out what to do so that I could have my petal shaped cake, and pillars. We eventually decided on pillars made for a round cake, knowing that it wouldnt fit perfect, but planning on hiding it somewhat with sugar flowers. The price for the sugar flowers and the pillars were added to our order. We paid in full in April, but when I was trying to contact her to arrange that (could I use credit card, where to mail the check, simple questions like that) it took a while to get a hold of her because she no longer had her home office, and calling Jefferson Market to contact her generally led to a run around. Id be told shes not here, call her at home. Call home, get a voicemail saying to call the store. Leave a message anyway, call the store back, have them take a message. Have them tell me shell call me back tomorrow. Wait two days, repeat. This lasted about a week before I got a hold of her. This on its own is not bad, I just think its a bit indicative of the attention the new store is taking away from her brides and cakes, given that it was never like this before. Cut to the day of the wedding. Cake is there. But with no pillars. Stacked directly on top of each other. The one thing I didnt want, and was very vocal about not wanting. She refunded the price of the pillars (since I purchased them from her and they were never used!) but I was given no compensation for the fact that she messed up my #1 priority.

Their cake is so moist and delicious. Better than all the bakeries we tried in town. Not as expensive as Zingerman's but it is SO much better in our opinion. The pastry chef was very friendly and accommodating.
