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!

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.

I had the most delicious, beautiful cake for my wedding...thanks to Merry! She pays so much attention to detail! I had no idea how to order a cake for a wedding...I hadn\'t even ordered a birthday cake before, but at Merry\'s...in 1 shot I ended up ordering for both my wedding and my maid of honors birthday...which was the day before my wedding! She helped me to pick the perfect shape, color, size, and then I got to pick my favorite flavors and fillings! There are so many options to choose from...its insane! But totally delicious! And what I loved the most...I love the look of fondant, but the taste is horrible....Merry was able to make me a cake that looked like fondant out of Buttercream! It was beautiful and totally delicious! And the price was awesome! I\'m going there for every cake from now on! :D 5 Stars!

Merry's Custom Cakes is a wonderful place to work with. Our wedding cake was 5 layers tall and each layer was a different flavor. They were all amazing. They also made a grooms cake for me and were even able to make my husbands 2 trucks on top of the the cake. I also had a small birthday cake made for my Dad, his birthday was the day after our wedding, so we surprised him. The cakes were delicious, moist and freshly made!!! If you want an amazing cake go to Merry's!!!

Bravo!! We didn't have a wedding cake, but we did do a tiered cup cake stand that was amazing. Everyone just loved the cupcakes! I will have to say that they are one of the best cup cakes I've had, even better than Crumbs!! We also used Merry's Custom cakes for a Bar-B-Que we had a few days before the wedding. It was my mother-in-laws birthday and we were able to get a cake with a picture of the entire family on the cake. It turned out beautiful and as always, tasted out of this world. Anytime you need a cake or cupcakes, this is the place you must go to!!

We had cupcakes and pastries instead of a wedding cake. It was wonderful to see the cupcake tree decorated with sunflowers on each cupcake. 5 different flavors of cakes were incredible...people raved about everyone of them. And it let our guests have cake whenever they wanted...plus it was great fun for the kids! Highly highly highly recommend.

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.

Our wedding cake was the most amazing tasting cake I have ever had. It was soooooooooo good.. However, it didn't really look like the picture we gave them, it was beautiful, just not really what I would have picked. But the taste was incredible - and we were able to sample a few different cakes (mini cakes!!) 1 complimentary, and 6$ each after - they were all excellent.

It pretty much melted in your mouth!! I highly recommend!! The best way to get in contact with them is by phone or visiting the bakery!!

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 made a beautiful custom wedding cake. We brought pictures of what we wanted--a birch tree cake with a bride and groom bird in a nest on top. The cake looked amazing, tasted great, and was a GREAT price. We did two sampling dates before choosing our flavors--so many options to choose from. We decided on chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting for the top two layers and red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting for the bottom layer. I would definitely order another cake from Merry's Custom Cakes--she does incredible work!

Cake had good flavor but that was about it. Order was no where near correct and it was near impossible to get ahold of her. Finally called the week before the wedding to discuss details, and the details discussed were not what was given on the day of. We did cupcakes with a small cake. The cake was supposed to be two sections for cutting and one for saving and it was only one. Cupcakes were not labeled with flavors (really bad since many had peanut butter) and their decorations were not the ones we talked about. Guests were happy with the flavor of the cupcakes which is a good thing, but details were very upsetting

Our cake was by Merry's as part of the package at Shawnee and this may have been why we ended up feeling like a bit of an afterthought. After meeting with Merry initially, she said eveything else could be done through email because we live a distance away but when I contacted her via email later on, she insisted we return for another consultation. This was somewhat frustrating but it was more the final product that made us feel like it was thrown together.

Everyone said the taste of the cake was very good but the appearance did not at all live up to expectations. It vaguely looked like the picture we had discussed but the colors were off even though I had provided color swatches. The quality of workmanship was more like someone just felt like they needed to get it done rather than having any pride in artistry. We liked the pictures on Merry's website because while they didn't quite match up to the top cake designers in New York, they seemed very well done particularly for the price and were quite artistic in their own right. Our wedding cake was not of the same quality as the pictures on the website and looked rather amateur. I did pay extra for specially made butterflies and dragonflies and they did exactly match the picture sent which again, makes me think if the cake hadn't been part of the "package" at Shawnee and had been paid for separately, we may have gotten more consideration.

We are very disapointed that this bride did not give us a good review! She was very particular with her wishes and we went the extra mile to make her happy! We got wonderful comments from her guests about her cake. Cakes included in a package are given as much attention as any other cake. Alot of what she wanted was not covered by her venue but we tried. We wish a great life for her and the groom. Blessings

To be honest this was the only disaster at our wedding. Unfortunately we had to use Merry's Custom Cakes as our vendor because of our venue. Only meeting with them once gave me a bad feeling. Our cake looked horrible and tasted even worse. To top it off it was covered in glitter, so tacky! The craftsmanship and attention to detail were so overlooked. My design/vision wasn't followed at all and I was very disappointed. I don't recommend for anyone to use this vendor.

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 will never be returning to Merry's Custom Cakes. Read less

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.

My experience with Mary is not based on her ability to bake or decorate cakes; it is based on her professionalism. I signed up for cake classes the beginning of 2012. She had to cancel and stated she’d issue me a refund. After about 3 months of calling, emailing, etc. she finally sent me a check. She never called me back or replied to one of my emails explaining why it was taking so long. The check ended up bouncing. Again, I emailed, called with no response. Not once did she contact me with an explanation. I went to the local magistrate’s office to file a claim and won since she did not show up to the hearing. She was ordered to refund me and pay costs incurred for the bounced check and the filing of the complaint but never paid. I’m in the process of having the Monroe County Sheriff issue an order of execution to put a levy on her property. All she had to do was call with some sort of explanation but I never got a response from her. I would never recommend her to anyone based on my experience. A true professional would never behave this way.
