We work with each bride and groom individually to make their wedding cake personalized and special. It is recommended that you reserve your date as soon as possible since we do limit the number of events for each weekend.

Taste and design are the two most important elements in your wedding cake. Keystone Confections will create a cake for your special day that tastes as good as it looks. Designs are to the couple's taste. Consultations to design your cake are by appointment. Please plan to spend an hour in this consultation so that we can design the perfect cake for you. Bring any ideas you have for your unique design. For more ideas, please see our wedding cake gallery. If you have a favorite flavor, please tell us when scheduling - we will bake a small complimentary sample cake for you. Read less

Linda is just amazing. My fiancé (now husband) and I didn't think we could find a cake that both looked good and tasted good...until we found Keystone! What a gem. Linda's cakes are both beautiful and delicious. And her creativity is just spectacular. She crafted our wedding cake to look like the lace on my dress, and the groom's cake for our rehearsal dinner was just astounding--long story short, it was a dome shape made to look like (half) a globe, and documented the timeline/travels of our relationship. Wow!

Linda Thompson, the owner of Keystone Confections, made a Groom's Cake for our Rehearsal Dinner that was very challenging -- an "Around the World Cake." Not only was it absolutely delicious (chocolate cake with a peanut butter center), the cake itself was extraordinary. The planning and the detail that she put into creating this cake for my son was amazing. She really captured exactly what we were looking for. Linda also baked beautiful sugar cookies for our guests, as well as gluten-free cake balls that were delicious. All of our guests were delighted and very impressed. Linda was wonderful to work with. She is not only extremely professional, but was very open to our ideas and put an enormous amount of effort into making our "Around the World" cake very, very special. I would absolutely work with Linda again! Susan M, Danbury, CT

Our cake was beyond beautiful and even better than expected. Everyone commented on how wonderful the cake tasted and looked along with everyone asking for more. Our cake was larger than our event needed but thank goodness it was because we had cake pulled to the side for the bride and groom or we would not have gotten any. I was able to meet with Linda last year (a year before) and then not worry about the cake again. Great pricing, timing and just all around made my wedding planning so much easier with Keystone Confections’ service.

The wedding cake that Linda made was identical to the picture we showed her that my daughter wanted. Linda had to try several recipes to find the correct color of cake because it was a "naked" cake with icing only in between layers, so that took time and effort. We didn't give her very much time (less than a month) to do all of this so we were very pleased with the results. She delivered the cake in perfect time, and it was not only beautiful, but was deliciious.

Linda also made cakeballs and cupcakes for the wedding and grooms cake. Both were fantastic. I have used Linda previously for events, and she has always come through perfectly.

I went to two different cake tastings, one winter and one spring, before I chose two flavors, chocolate and almond vanilla, for my 150 cupcake wedding cake with one tier on top for cutting and one tier to take home. She is absolutely amazing to work with and made my vision come to life even prettier than I had imagined it.

I've worked with Linda several times over the past year and also been to events; ranging from my daughter's first birthday, to baby showers, other bday parties and most recently one of my best friend's weddings. We sat down and she made sure she understood our vision and worked with us to make sure we had enough and that everything was fitting for our liking! She's wonderful in her creativity and passion, and I would most definitely recommend her to anyone!
