Carla was amazing to work with. From the moment we met her - she was helpful, full of advice, and easygoing. The cake was never a concern while we were planning the wedding, because Carla took such good care of us. We ordered a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting - which for a wedding cake, i know, is not the norm. But we LOVED it. It was moist and the frosting was beautiful and tasty. Thank you Carla!

Our cake was AMAZING! Usually I find wedding cakes to be very dry and boring, but this cake was so delicious. I couldn't get enough of it! Not only did it taste great, but it also looked very beautiful. Modern Pastry did a great job making my vision for the cake a reality.

We didn't deal much with Modern Pastry aside from a cake tasting, as our cake was included with our package at A Villa Louisa. The bakery and our venue coordinator were in touch most of the time. However, our cake was awesome. We had a Halloween-themed reception, and when we told Modern Pastry we wanted a bright orange cake, they did exactly what we wanted. They have several traditional cake books you can look through for examples, but there weren't a lot of orange cakes with black swirls so I was a little nervous they wouldn't get it right. It was better than I expected, and we had several compliments on how great our cake looked. We opted for the carrot cake, which was more like a spice cake. It was perfect for a fall wedding.

I have gotten so many compliments on the cake and that everyone finished it, which people usually don't. It was easy to work with the team in desiging the cake. Even though the cake I thought could of been a little more finished looking, it was modern and all the guest complimented it. Overall we were pleased and would recommend Modern Pastry for any wedding or special occassion.

Modern was the vendor we had to use through the Gershon Fox. At first I was a little leary after reading other brides reviews, saying their pictures had been lost and the cake looked nothing like they had originally discussed. Luckily this was not the case for us! Our cake came out exactly as we had imagined it. I was so happy! Everyone said the cake tasted great also! We also ordered mini cannolis to be served, and when they came out they were not very fresh tasting and kind of soggy, my husband was really bummed about this since we paid extra for this part and he was really looking forward to them. All in all the service was good, We got our cake exactly how we wanted it and it was delicious!

What I really cared about was the taste of the cake and it tasted great. I only had to order the cake the week of and they were able to deliver it. It was a very simple process once I sent my sister to do the tasting because I live too far away. I would definitely recommend Modern for your wedding cake. I kept it simple White with just a bit of Lavender and then we added Flowers for the decoration once it was delivered. (I wanted to buy a cake that was for 75 people but my family pressured me into buying a bigger cake.) As I figured the cake didn't get completely eaten because everyone is so full from the wedding. It's no big deal of course but it just reminds me to go with my gut!

I used Tastebuds as my caterer. Since I only had 50 people at my wedding, we used Modern for the cake. We went for a tasting and the girl there was awesome. We picked the lemon mousse. It was so light and yummy! We also paid extra to add the fondant draping to the cake. It was only two tiers, but still gorgeous! There was plenty of cake leftover and I know people went up for seconds and thirds :) I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great cake!

This cake was THE BEST cake I've ever had. Everyone commented on how great it was. Not only did it taste great, it was absoultely beautiful. We also had them make our daughters birthday cake, absolutely amazing. We brought them a picture and they made the same exact cake, but better. The staff at Modern Pastry are very patient, understanding, and focused on satisfying their patrons. 100% would suggest.

Our wedding cake was included in our package from the Gershon. In our opinion they should re-think their working relationship. While the cake was tasty, it didn’t look at all like the picture we presented. I would also like to note that our cake was super simple and in butter cream not even in fondant. Our colors were suppose to be champagne and ivory. We got a white cake. All white no contrast. Ugh. Plus 3 days prior to the wedding I sent a follow-up email to the bakery and she responded stating she had lost the picture and if I could resend. Hence our surprise when it didn’t look the way that the picture did. The extra staff that works in the shop is not professional at all. They were cursing while we waited to speak to Carla (owner\'s daughter??) She was very nice, but the atmosphere in their was questionable.

Modern Pastry is one of the two vendors that works closely with my wedding venue (La Renaissance). After meeting with Lisa, I knew that they were the shop that I was going to choose for my wedding. They were flexible and helped me choose just the right cake for my reception (size, flavor, decoration, style, etc.). They incorporated all of my ideas in just the right cake. Although they didn't match the roses and ribbon colors like I had hoped, everything else was perfect. I can't wait to have another bite on my one year anniversary.

We loved our cake from Modern Pastry - they did an excellent job! We selected the raspberry and ricotta filling with a buttercream (I'm against fondant) and it tasted great - moist and flavorful, all the guests seemed to love it too. The price was extremely reasonable - well worth the money compared to other wedding cake vendors we looked at which were twice as much. One note - we worked with one employee at the beginning who wasn't very helpful in terms of how much cake we needed, what kind of decorations worked, etc. The couple next to us was working with Lisa and getting a much better walk through of the cake options, but we felt terrible asking to switch associates. We eventually left and then came back at a time when Lisa was available to speak to us - it put me much more at ease. In the future, I would request to speak to Lisa directly as she seems to be much more knowledgeable.

I used Modern through my wedding venue and was so thrilled with the quality of the cake -- both in taste and appearance. People still talk about it! Truth me told, I was a bit nervous about using them as they were much more of a bakery / mom and pop shop. I was really into using someone who had be published or could come up with some crazy style cake. I'm SO glad that I resisted the urge and stuck with Modern. They did an incredible job. The cake was my favorite detail of the day! Everyone remarked on how delicious it was (chocolate cake / raspberry whipped filling / chocolate ganache buttercream).

The bakery was included with my reception package at the Marriott Hartford Downtown. They was absolutely wonderful to work with and the cake was delicious. I was surprised to hear from guests that they was impressed with how the good it tasted. There was a lot of cake leftover, so when family members came over to my parents house after people were able to eat more. The two sisters had a lot of ideas and suggestions on how to decorate the cake based on the information that I provided to them.

The bakery was included with my reception package at the Marriott Hartford Downtown. They was absolutely wonderful to work with and the cake was delicious. I was surprised to hear from guests that they was impressed with how the good it tasted. There was a lot of cake leftover, so when family members came over to my parents house after people were able to eat more. The two sisters had a lot of ideas and suggestions on how to decorate the cake based on the information that I provided to them. I would definitely go back and get other cakes from them in the future. Read less

Modern Pastry provided a great tasting and allowed 4 of us (future husband and his parents) to try as many different combinations of cake as we could possibly dream up.

I gave them a few photos from magazines of cakes I liked and they came up with an amazing creation. It tasted great and I was pleased with their service. I didn't have to worry about delivery or confirmation, they handled everything directly with the reception venue.

Delicious! We had our cake included with our venue, so our choices were limited to white, chocolate or marble. We wanted a strawberry cake! So, the owner worked with us to incorporate the fruit flavor - she gave us several options of jellies, fresh fruit, mousse and even made some samples of each. We looked at pictures that she had (bring your own pics if you have them!) and told her our likes and dislikes and she designed a beautiful cake - gave us a copy of her "drawing" and the details... how many layers, diameters, frosting, filling, etc.

Modern Pastry provided our cake for our wedding at Maneeley's. It was very convenient to work with them because the cake was included with our wedding package. All we had to do was go to the bakery to pick out what we wanted and they took care of the rest. When we went for our tasting, they offered to prepare us as many samples and flavors as we wanted. We ended up going with chocolate cake/raspberry mousse and vanilla cake/strawberry mousse. It was phenomenal. So many people commented on how good it was. We had some leftovers to take home, and we gobbled it up the next day. We can't wait for our one year anniversary so we can eat the top layer! The decorations came out beautiful too. They got the colors of the sugar flowers just right. Lisa and Carla were great and really fun to work with. Whenever I mention this place, people have already heard of them, so you know its good!
