Great value- reasonably priced for really great cake. Design was beautiful and just what we had asked for. And really, really tasty- great flavor to the cake, and the fillings were wonderful. They were easy to work with, and helped us figure out exactly what flavors, shapes, designs, etc we would be most happy with. Highly recommend.

John and Judy have been in the wedding cake business a long time and it certainly shows. Our cake was beautiful and classic, just the way I wanted it. John was so easy to work with and understood all of my ideas and what I wanted. They truly are talented and you will not be let down with your cake designs. The flavors they have to choose from are absolutely delicious as well! Our favorite was the champagne wedding cake with strawberry filling... we also had a chocolate cake with vanilla cream filling that was very tasty too! I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing and delicious wedding cake.

I wasn't able to make it to the cake tasting as there were some weather issues, but Shelton sent my parents home with the mini cakes for us to try at a later date. We also sent pictures of ideas for the design of the cake with my parents. The cakes were still moist a week later after being in the freezer and the design on the cake was amazing!!! They also let us borrow a cake stand for a small fee. I would definitely suggest this bakery for a cake for your next function!

John came to the rescue! I had one week to find a baker. Within 1week we had a tasting, meeting, final decision and my cake was delivered more beautiful than I imagined. Working with John made wedding cake browsing very easy. Which was nice to have one less thing to stress about. After telling him how many guests, the colors and our cake top. Coming up with a simple design to fit with my taste was a breeze!

Our wedding cake was not only beautiful, it was absolutely delicious! We decided to book Shelton's Wedding Cake Designs for our wedding after tasting their cake at a bridal reception at our venue. The cake tasted amazing. I had tasted some other cakes at other bridal fairs and some were very dry and the flavor was lacking. But Shelton's cake was so moist and delicious. My husband and I really liked working with John. He was very professional and gave us custom made mini cakes to try at home before deciding on our wedding cake flavors. We selected a few different flavors and icing. They were all so good...they literally melted in our mouths. And the cake design is absolutely beautiful! Everyone talked about how beautiful our cake was. I wish they made birthday cakes so I could order one for my birthday!

The cake tasted amazing!! The only taste I had at the wedding was the one my husband shoved in my face, but it tasted great! My venue saved some of the leftover cake (in addition to the top layer), so we had some leftover cake for the next few days, and it was wonderful. Butter cream frosting and wonderful cake and filling. Vanilla rum cream cake with chocolate mousse frosting, and champagne cake with lemon cream frosting, wonderful!!

My husband and I booked Sheltons Wedding Cakes after our venue recommended them. We loved how they gave you mini cakes to take home and taste in the comfort of your own home. Our cake turned out perfect! It was lovely and we were told by many guests that the cake was delicious. We picked the white cake with chocolate chips and mousse and also the champagne cake with strawberry filling. That was my favorite. So yummy!! I also hired them to make a small football theme grooms cake and it was better than I expected. Just showed John a few pictures and he created a very cute cake that looked like a football field with my husband's teams colors and logo. My husband loved it! Definitely would recommend Sheltons! Save yourself the time and just go with them. You won't be disappointed.

For as long as I can remember I have always LOVED wedding cake! So it was only natural that when it came time to plan my own wedding I tried every wedding cake place I could before deciding which one to use. Sheltons wedding cakes hands down is the most delicious wedding cakes I have tasted! I loved that they allowed me to choose as many flavors as I wanted for the different tiers of our cake. We received numerous compliments from our guests about how delicious the cake was and many people went back for seconds. The only thing that I was a little disappointed by was that they were unable to do the design for the outside of the cake that I originally wanted as it wasn't straight lines around the tiers. It wasn't a deal breaker for me as I was more concerned with the taste than the exact style of my wedding cake. And no other bakery even came close to Sheltons! Go in and meet with them if you are looking for a delicious wedding cake and you will not be disappointed! PS I recommend the butter pecan with cream cheese frosting!

Our wedding cake from Shelton's was so beautiful, and delicious. We loved getting sample cakes to take home to share with our family! John was so helpful and sweet. I had a specific design in mind, and they created just what I wanted! Many of our guests, and the catering staff commented on how good the cake was, it really tasted delicious. It was a gorgeous, perfect cake!

I loved my wedding cake, it was simple (which was personal preference) and tasted sooooo good!!

John was so nice and professional. He even didn't mind when my wild three year old wouldn't sit still during our meeting.

We changed our minds at the last minute, and our change resulted in them having to refund some of our money back. John had no problem with it and didn't make me feel bad at all!!

Again...the cake was so good! All of our guests lovvved it. I seriously can't WAIT to eat our anniversary cake LOL.

John was such a pleasure to work with! Together we designed a fantastic cake. We received so many compliments on the design. His wife really takes the time to make sure that the details are perfect. Not only was the design great, but the actual cake was delicious! So many compliments were also received on the flavor. We can't wait to eat our top layer on our one year anniversary!!

Sheltons was amazing!! I went in to see John with a pretty small budget, and not very much time. He was able to fit me into his schedule and deliver the cake of my dreams that fit exactly within my budget! He was on time for delivery- and my cake was the talk of the night. By far the best cake I've ever eaten!!! Even my ceremony/reception venue was excited when I told him I was getting my cake from Sheltons- he said he loved their cake and would have to sneak a piece for himself! haha I would recommend sheltons to anyone and everyone!!

John did an amazing job!! He was sooo easy to work with! I gave him a black and white picture and he made it just how I wanted it! I got nothing but compliments on my cake! He had the exact stand I wanted so I did not have to go elsewhere! He was on time and the cake was sooo moist and I loved that each layer could be a different flavor and filling without costing more! It was amazing!!!!!!!!!! I can�t wait to get birthday cakes and anniversary cakes from him each year� amazing!!!!

OMG!!! Our wedding cake was so awsome!! John did a fantastic job on our cake. It was delicious and everyone was talking about how good our cake was!!! My best friend used Shelton's for her wedding and she told us about his shop. He's friendly and takes the time to explain the options and above all provides you with small 4' cakes to take home and make a decision with out any kind of pressure!! He shows that he truly cares about the quality of his product. I highly recommend Shelton's bakery to everyone and anyone!!!

I had a fantastic experience with Sheltons and the cake was beautiful and absolutely delicious. My only issue which is pretty minor is that our best man forgot to return the cake stand timely so I got charged $50. The best man did return it and I tried to follow up to get a refund but Sheltons did not return my call and ultimately I did not get my money back.

The wedding cake...is something everyone will remember on this very special day. My wife and I shopped around for a long time to find that "perfect" cake. And we found just that place. The staff was so friendly and and the wedding cake was awesome! They had so many varities and choices to chose from on the wedding cake. From simple designs, to artistic and beautiful cakes. We ended up going all out on the cake since we wanted everyone to remember it. The staff was so friendly and kind, catering to our every needs and details. They really bent over backwards for us and did everything in their power to make this our special day. We knocked a home run out of the park on this cake and the place is awesome. Highly recommend!

Shelton's made my wedding cake and i will tell you it was the best wedding cake ever. I have been to many weddings and nothing compares to the cake that i was provided for my wedding for money that i paid. My cake was absolutely beautiful. They brought the cake to my place of reception i didnt have to worry about anything. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to buy a cake for a wedding or any special occasion!

I was referred to Shelton's by a friend.

A brief description of my experience:

You must set up an appointment to view their cake designs. Not only are they extremely flexible, but they also have the best looking designs in town.. especially for the price!

They let you choose everything but will also give you their professional opinion on whether or not something will clash. Example: Initially, I thought the dots on my cake should match the edible flowers, they told me the flowers would not "pop" as well. I took their advice and was blown away!

While picking your design, they offer you a list of flavors to choose from. Within a day or two, they bake the most adorable little cakes for you to taste!

They deliver to the agreed location on time and do all of the set up for you. As the bride, you never even know they've been there! Not until it's cake cutting time! And then you are amazed at the sheer beauty and you are PROUD to serve your guests such a lovely wedding cake. I'm not sure what was best: the taste or the look!

I would do business with them again in a heartbeat! I also intend on referring my engaged friends to their establishment!

Our cake was delicious and exactly what we selected. They worked with us to select the flavors and fillings that worked well together and really went above and beyond in working with our florist to make sure it all came together. We saved our top tier and it was still delcious a year later when we pulled it from the freezer. They are a bit pricey, but I would definitely recommend using them!
