My husband and I were so pleased with our wedding cake that Merry created for our July 2014 wedding in Stroudsburg. What stands out the most with Merry’s cakes is the GIGANTIC flavor selection and customization options…and of course, the TASTE! Our wedding venue offered a cake with our package, but we opted instead for Merry’s services because we really wanted some more options, someone who specializes in this sort of thing, and her prices are unbelievably reasonable…especially since we wanted a fondant covered cake. And then once we tasted her cakes at a sampling, we were sold. They are DELICIOUS and we wish we could eat them every day! When we went for our consultation, we gave her photos from Pinterest and elsewhere on the internet which included fondant, sugar flowers, and metallic foil detail. I’ll admit that the final product didn’t look ‘precisely’ like the photos, so if you are looking to have an exact replica of something, keep that in mind. But the cake still looked VERY beautiful and Merry created something that was clean, colorful, pretty, and unique and our guests all loved the look and…THE TASTE!! We were very happy with it and we CAN’T WAIT to eat the top tier on our first anniversary!!!! I would definitely recommend Merry’s Custom Cakes – great value for the money and super yummy.

Merry was extremely nonresponsive to questions and concerns, both through email and phone calls, even up through the week before the wedding. We met with her for a solid 30 minutes and explained, in detail, with pictures, what we wanted. We asked for a simple buttercream cake with rustic frosting, with columns in between each layer so that roses could be placed by the florist. Instead, we received a cake with frosting opposite of the picture we provided her, with columns only between one, not two, of the layers. To top it off, it was COVERED in glitter; the word "glitter" was never once spoken between us and it was absolutely not something we wanted. In addition, we ordered 3 dozen cupcakes in 3 different flavors that arrived unmarked (and also covered in glitter) The cake was important to us and it was absolutely the opposite of what we requested and provided pictures of. We will never be returning to Merry's Custom Cakes.

We are sorry that you were not happy. We did the cake according to you specifications. You never requested the cupcakes be labeled. The glitter you are talking about is and edible "dust" that we use on all our cakes. Brides love it. All the cakes you saw in the bakery had a sparkle to them. We take great pride in our work. Apparently we were not on the same page. Our apolagy.

Words can not describe how happy we were with your cake. We lived out of state and were able to get the best cake in the world. It look so beautiful. We could not have pictured a better cake. The cake also tasted amazing, I could not have asked for a better cake.

Merry's cake was great! She can do just about anything so I showed her a photo of what we wanted and she did a great job of making it perfect. TONs of icing and cake flavors to choose from.

The whole process was super easy. I wanted a cake that was light and beautiful, and I got just that! The cake tasted delicious and looked exactly the way I wanted it to! I was a Shawnee Wedding Bride, so the cake was included in the package, but that did not make the quality any less than delicious. I will definitively be back for another cake in the future!

My wedding cake was included with my package at Shawnee Inn, and I am glad it was. Merry is such a friendly woman whom you can tell has a passion in baking. The wedding cake was beautiful and tasted great. Want an off the wall flavor? Merry has it! Merry also made the cake pops and macaroons for my reception and even though I didnt have a chance to try one, I heard they were all delicious.

We only had to meet once with Merry's Custom Cakes and she envisioned our dream wedding cake exactly how we wanted it. The cake was brought to the venue and assembled on location to make sure everything was perfect. Each layer on the cake was a specific flavor and filling - and each was exactly what we had asked for. I'm so glad our venue was tied to Merry's Cakes!

Our planned wedding cake fell through, so we came to Merrys custom cakes a week before our wedding. Everywhere else laughed us out the door, but Merrys welcomed us in and was very understanding. She worked with us to design a topsy turvy cake with three different flavors for no added charge, and a delivered it to an hour away and set it up for only $20! The cake was excellent.
