Modern created a wedding cake for our wedding that they had not done before. They were very responsive to us and in a timely manner, as we had called them quite a few times to iron out details. They created a multi-tier wedding cake, took all of the tiers, and seemed knowledgeable on how to put them together. They really set our minds at ease. With all of the chaos of other vendors and nuances of the wedding planning process, Modern made the cake decisions easy and smooth! Highly recommend!

My daughter had her wedding 7/9/16 and our venue paid for the cake and gave us a choice of bakeries. I have to say, we are so happy that we chose Modern Pastry Shop. There were many books to choose from and they offered a tasting for my daughter and her fiance. The cake was delicious and we would highly recommend this shop. We have no complaints and they were a very professional place to work with.

My FH and I went to Modern Pastry this past weekend to design our wedding cake through Maneeley's. Lisa and the staff were so nice!! They instantly greeted us and gave us suggestions that were very helpful. The samples we tried were delicious, it was hard to decide which type to get! (We ended up getting three different flavors for each tier). My FH loves oreos and Lisa was able to give us some oreo filling sampling that wasn't on the menu. This place is great we cannot wait to try our cake!

We went to Modern Pastry to design our wedding cake in conjunction with Maneeleys in South Windsor. We were so happy as we were able to design the cake that we wanted and chose the different flavors. Our wedding had a rustic feel and we wanted out cake to match that. They helped us design a beautiful cake and Modern pasty nailed it. The cake was delivered without issue and looked so beautiful in the facility. It tasted even better. We cant wait to have a little bit more of it on our 1 year anniversary.

Delicious and beautiful!
We did 2 chocolate layers and one white with the raspberry ricotta filling. OMG! It was so delicious, we're working on eating the top layer this week at home as opposed to keeping it in the freezer for a year.

And the cake itself was so beautiful, I didn't even want to cut it. It looked like a piece of art.

Thank you Modern!

When I got engaged I knew that I wanted to get my cake from Modern. My mother in law offered to pay for our cake so we did end up looking at other places but eventually ended up back at Modern to purchase our cake and platters of Italian cookies. The cake tastes as amazing as it looks. My husband was convinced that he wanted fondant. Lisa was great to give me samples of cake, fondant, and frosting to bring home to help us make our decision. While their fondant does taste great I was able to convince my husband to go with buttercream because their designs with buttercream are awesome. We were able to get three layers of each a different flavor. We received so many complements on the cake and people actually ate the cake and cookies. I would definitely recommend Modern because their cakes taste as good as they look.

My father and I went to a cake tasting here and it was delicious. They were very patient with us because I had to go back several times to finally decide on a flavor (several layers with different flavors) and design. It was a little pricey at $3 per serving, but they were very accommodating and suggested I have the wedding cake a smaller size and supplement the extra servings with a sheet cake which looks the same once it is cut up and is only $1 per serving. They folks were very helpful and eager to help me, the bride, get exactly what I wanted.

I picked them through my venue, it was one of three cake places offered through our venue package. My dad said he had food from them before, but never had their cakes. Much, to my surprise even though it's a tiny little bakery located in Hartford, CT they make really awesome cakes. My hubby and I went down for our cake tasting, and knew which flavors in mind we wanted, we tried all the flavors and picked two separate cake choices and filling flavors for our two tier cake. Gladly, the accepted this without any problem, plus I brought a cake design picture which they copied perfectly down to the placement of sugar leaves and chocolate scroll designs on our cake. When I saw my cake being brought into our reception room, I almost screamed and was amazed at how well it turned out. Many of our guests asked where the cake came from, and how did I find them. I was all to happy to answer them. This bakery may be small, and located in busy town, but it is definitely worth checking out.
