Occasional Cakes did an outstanding job of giving us a fantastic cake that was as beautiful outside as it was delicious inside. All of our guests talked about how moist and delicious the was and how amazing the cake looked. I had made appointments with three other wedding cake bakers and they all fell through. Not only were they ultra professional, but they were extremely reasonable and gave me options to keep my costs down. I would absolutely recommend them to EVERY bride and groom looking for the very best cake, at the best price!

My daughter (the bride) and I first met Janice from Occasional Cakes at the Washington DC Bridal Show in January 2013. There were several cake vendors but none compared to Occasional Cakes. This was not just our opinion but as we walked around the convention center, we overheard many other guests making the same comments. We asked Janice to make and deliver our cake to our venue at Whitehall Manor in Bluemont, Va. but Janice had to regretfully decline because of the more than 65 miles she would have to drive to deliver the cake. Janice wants to deliver an exceptional product and in the extreme heat of August, this would be difficult. So we went to many cake tasting events at different bakeries in Northern Virginia trying to find a cake that matched Occasional Cakes. We were not successful but decided on a local bakery anyway. Since we did not have to place our order until the middle of July and our wedding was midweek on a Wednesday, I decided to try Janice one more time to see what we could do to fill my daughter's dream to have the "No Pink Strawberry" cake for her wedding cake and I sent her an email. Janice responded immediately. She said she would talk to her driver and get back to me. She got back to me right away with plans that if I could be flexible on the time the cake was delivered and how the cake was stacked, she could provide our cake. The venue agreed the cake could be delivered earlier in the day and we placed our order. The cake was the most delicious, moist beautiful wedding cake, a true masterpiece completing our dream wedding. The price we paid was more than reasonable. Outstanding service, outstanding responsiveness, outstanding value and flexibility. Janice showed her professionalism not wanting to accept business if she could not deliver an outstanding product but was willing to work together with us to provide our wedding cake. I will enjoy using Janice again and I highly recommend Occasional Cakes; best value, best product!

Just absolutely wonderful and friendly service...and we didn't feel like we were talked into spending an arm and a leg. They worked with us to make the cake exactly as we had envisioned at a reasonable cost. In fact, it was even better than expected, in look and taste. The cake was beautiful on the outside and moist and well flavored on the inside. In fact, with such a wide variety of flavors, one of the hardest decisions was actually what flavors to choose. I loved that they included instructions on how to best preserve the anniversary layer, otherwise I would not have had a clue. I was extremely happy with the service we received. We could not have made a better choice than this vendor.

On the day of my wedding, when i saw my cake, I was overwhelmed with excitement because it was the most beautiful cake i have ever seen. People are still telling me how delicious it was....and that's a good thing cause if people don't remember much from weddings they always remember the cake. I am recommending her to everyone i know.

I fell in love with Occasional Cake’s butter rum cake at Newton White Mansion’s winter bridal show. I visited a few bakers for cake tastings but I couldn’t forget Janice’s butter rum cake. The cake is moist with great flavor. Janice was a delight to work with. She is extremely professional and was very accommodative to my ideas and changes. Days before the wedding I was concerned that I would not have enough cake for all of my guests. Janice proactively helped me develop a solution. The end result was a beautifully decorated wedding cake that was absolutely delicious. My guests loved the cake and there were hardly any slices left at the end of the evening. I strongly recommend Occasional Cakes for an upcoming wedding or event!!

Occasional Cakes provided services for both the wedding and groom's cakes. The service was excellent from start to finish!!! Ms. Janice Harrison's design style is modern with a traditional flare. The cakes not only looked beautiful but tasted fantastic!!! If you want a cake that looks straight from the page of a magazine but tastes as if your mom made it then Occasional Cakes is the place for you. We served every guest both the wedding and groom's cakes as each plate was left empty on the table at the end of the night. The groom loved his cake featuring his favorite NFL team (Minnesota Vikings) it was as if he was a child again pointing and smiling directing everyone to "look at my cake". Occasional Cakes service was very professional and Ms. Harrison went the extra mile for our special day by obtaining a gold cake stand to match our wedding decor. Thank You Janice for making our dreams come true!!! We highly recommend Occasional Cakes for your event!!!

If you're looking for a cake that both looks good and tastes good, you will want to choose Occasional Cakes. Like most brides, I barely had a chance to eat at my wedding and that included getting a real slice of my own wedding cake. My husband and I left for our honeymoon the day after our wedding and the desserts we received while on our cruise vacation couldn't even compare. When we returned home, we were delighted to find some leftover wedding cake awaiting us and quickly indulged ourselves. In addition, the cost in comparison was exceptional. I would highly recommend Occasional Cakes!

Occasional Cakes has the best moist cakes. I was able to sample over 10 different cakes during my taste testing. I gave them an idea of what I wanted on my cake and they put it together and it was more than what I was expecting. I just loved my double heart cake and it fit right in with my double heart theme. The cake was delivered on time as well.

The cake was delicious and moist. The decoration was to die for. Everyone thought I paid big money for the cake. Janice was very professional and flexable. I had changed the cake design about 4 different times. She was very understanding and made very helpful suggestion. I would highly recommend to anyone.

We were really impressed by the service and quality that Ms. Janice provided. She did a extrodinary job at understanding out needs and creating a cake that we really wanted. When we came into her office we were blown away buy the vast varity of taste she had to offer and the promptness of service she provided. She did a amazing job and it turn out exactly the way we described it. I love this cake lady and I recommend her to pieces. Everyone could not stop talking about how good the cake was. In fact it was so good someone walked off with our anniversary layer. So that is the down side to a great cake. You may not get to taste any. But from the piece we did have it was we great! I am telling you to go here for all your cake needs. Thanks Ms. Janice.

P.s Did I mention that she is really affordable too. Great for all budgets and she works with you......WOW!

Janice did a wonderful job on the wedding cake. I couldn't not make up my mind how I wanted the cake to look and I interviewed a few different vendors, but came back to Occasional Cakes because they could give me everything I wanted with no compromise. The cake was a huge hit, people didn't want me to cut it. I saw a photo in a magazine and they basically made it come to life. Then the taste, how about it was fabulous. I wish I had ordered the extra sheet cake. I couldn't believe how fast the cake went. We were lucky to have the top layer to take with us. Most of the time, folks usually have plenty of cake leftover, but not us, folks were almost eating up crumps off the silver cake stand. I met with Janice twice and she was wonderful to work with and assured me that the cake would be as I pictured in my head and it was and the absolutely best part was that it taste as good as it looked.

The cake was both beautiful and delicious! Ms. Harrison was able to add a few special touches to the design we chose to make it unique to our wedding. We had a three tier cake with 4 different flavors and everyone loved it - I got tons of compliments on the cake after the reception ended. Since we didn't want it ruined by freezer burn by waiting a full year, my husband and I ate it for our 1 month anniversary - now we're looking forward to ordering our 1 year anniversary cake :)

OMG!

I learned of Occasional Cakes and Janice Harrison from my wedding coordinator and had an introduction conversation at a bridal show. We were able to taste some sample cakes and were really intrigued to learn more. Two weeks later my husband and I booked our private tasting and just had a delightful time. Each flavor was delicious and Ms. Harrison was able to compliment each of our preferences. Our guests particularly enjoyed the no pink strawberry flavor.

I was also VERY appreciative that Ms. Harrison worked within our budget and made us feel comfortable through out the entire selection process. Ms. Harrison works with many clients and gives each person personal attention. If you have questions during your order process, I found it easier to get in touch via email. Ms. Harrison responded promptly and all my questions were answered. For a delicious cake from a local baker, I would definitely recommend Occasional Cakes.

We used Occasional Cakes for our wedding cake, and it was delicious! We chose a very simple design and decorated with orchids from our florist. The cake was very moist, full of flavor and tasted like a homemade lemon pound cake. I can't wait to taste our anniversary layer - because at the end of the night, the rest of the cake was gone!

I would recommend Occasional Cakes for your wedding cake because Ms. Janice is very professional and her cakes are awesome! What I really liked is that she allowed me to taste several freshly-baked cake flavors during my tasting session. This really helped to sway my decision because I took some home to my then fiance and he fell in love with her cakes on the spot.

Great customer service on each encounter with her. Very responsive and professional. Very flexible with me when I changed the design of my cake a few weeks before my wedding and executed what I wanted perfectly.

Her cake tasted THE BEST out of every wedding showcase that I visited and every individual bakery that I visited; and I visited over 10 bakeries and went to all of the largest bridal showcases in the region. It was moist, flavorful, and just plain delicious, which is what everyone wants for their wedding cake right? When I met Janice at the bridal showcase, I kept going back for more cake because it was so good.

She offers a variety of flavors and people are STILL talking about how great my cake was. She also offered several visual examples of work she had done in the past in the form of actual cakes and has several photos of her work online. I'm planning to use her for all of my cake needs from now on. Definitely would reccomend her!

Janice was a pleasure to work with. She was very professional, available, and always there to help. The wedding cake was beautiful and tasted great! My only complaint was that the sheet cakes we bought were very dense, which made it difficult to eat an entire piece. Overall, Occasional Cakes is a great business to work with. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a bakery for their wedding.

We were very pleased with Occassional Cakes. Our cake was absolutely beautiful!

We were supposed to have filling in our cake and a monogram done in our wedding colors. We were not informed that the monogram could not be done in our color prior to the wedding, therefore, I was surprised to not see it on the cake when we went to cut the cake at the reception. At that time we also discovered that the filling was not done.

However, Occassional Cakes provided us with a complimentary anniversary cake to compensate for the error. I appreciated their responsiveness.

I would definitely recommend this vendor.

Thank you for the beautifully decorated wedding cake and grooms cake you provided for our wedding. The flavors (red velvet, lemon, butter rum, vanilla, and spice) were wonderful. Everyone raved about the flavor and moistness of the cake. You delivered in making a homemade southern quality cake in a professionally decorated package. Thanks for everything!

I used Occasional Cakes for a retirement reception. I gave very little instruction about what the cake should look like - just basic guidance that I needed a cake that reflected the love we had for an employee that completed over 34 years of service. On the day of the event, I was blown away when I saw the cake. It was prefect and the center piece of the event. I couldn't have asked for more. Everyone who saw the cake wanted to know what bakery we used.
