Rum runners bakery was the most unique and creative bakery out there. Our grooms cake as well as wedding cakes ranged from traditional red velvet and strawberry flavors to salted carmel whiskey and irish car bomb. The one downside is it took a lot of work on our end to receive any kind of invoice or pricing however with that as the only hassel....the cake was amazing, the staff was friendly and accommodation during our tasting and everything went off without a hitch in the end.

We almost didn't visit Rum Runners based on one other not-so-great review of this bakery, and boy wouldn't that have been a mistake!?!

We had absolutely the best experience with Meggan at Rum Runners. She is such an amazing person and talented at what she does. The first time we visited my grandma and I were on a girls planning trip to Savannah, we came in for a tasting and were blown away with the options and combinations that Meggan presented us. I was also thrilled to hear that she was willing to try new funky flavor combos, and would basically do anything that we wanted to try. Since my fiance was particularly interested in the cake and wasn't able to make the first tasting Meggan set up a second tasting for us where he could be present. What a treat!

Also, she was very upfront and the cost of materials and her time when it came to some more labor intensive requests. When we asked for Pralines she was certainly willing to do them but advised that the cost of nuts was up and that she would have to pass that onto us, and it might not fit in the budget that we talked about. I really appreciated her honesty and candor about those things. Also, she has a great selection of servers and stands, but was totally willing to use the pieces that we had as well.

We ended up doing three cakes, a couple dozen mini pies (the cutest things on the planet by-the-way), and french style macaroons, and everything was absolutely amazing.

Word of advice, take Meggan's recommendation on the amount of desserts that you need, at the last minute I upped the size of one of the cakes (mostly for aesthetic reasons), and we have more than 3/4 of that cake in our freezer. I'm not upset about it because its DELICIOUS, but it was unnecessary, so if you don't want left-overs (and I'm not sure why you wouldn't), then her gauge of the amount you need is spot-on.

I highly recommend!

Meggan and the Rum Runners team are awesome! The cake was delicious and beautiful. We've been back for mini rum cakes in the bakery often.. and got the big version for Christmas presents. They are a great local bakery - the type that remembers your name and truly cares that you're happy!

I loved my wedding cake! Meggan is great. We had fun meeting with her for a tasting, and she delivered exactly what I was looking for. The cake was fresh and tasted delicious; we had a small wedding so had just a two-tiered cake. The top was almond flavored, and the bottom was butter. I had provided her with a picture of what I was looking for and she delivered exactly what I had hoped, including the placement of the fresh flowers we ordered for the cake. Meggan, thank you! I highly recommend Rum Runners!

Cake was delicious. We had a large sheet cake (not a super formal wedding) with writing on the cake to match the invitation. Cake looked great, and tasted better.

Rum Runners certainly knows their cakes! of all kinds. From planning to our wedding night, everything was flawless.

And our cake was vegan/gluten free. Because I am Celiac, this was important. I did not get sick--so they did a great job!!

And beautiful and affordable too. Thank you Rum Runners!

We loved our wedding cake! We had a three layer cake and each layer was a different flavor. Chocolate, coconut and hummingbird - all delicious.We kept the flavors a secret from our guests until the big day and they loved all their yummy options.

The cake was a bit more expensive than some other vendors we looked at, but we went with them because they had more options for flavors, which was important to us. We communicated via phone and email and at times there were lags of a week or more before I'd get a question answered.

All in all, though, we were very pleased with our cake and the service, and the bakery itself is absolutely charming.

Overall the quality of their cheesecake is great! Meghan was able to get me to try (and like) things I would normally not eat! While working with Meghan ran smoothly and was a great experience, some of her team members were not so great. In the weeks before our wedding Meghan was unavailable and instead of telling me this and answering questions I had, her team would “take messages” and my calls were never returned.

After finally getting a hold of Meghan everything was worked out and the day of our event we had wonderful cheesecake shooters!
