My mother-in-law always goes to the Cake Ladies when there is a special event. She had previously order a wedding cake through them for her nieces' wedding in 2007. It was a much smaller cake than mine but it was beautiful and tasty according to everyone that attended the wedding. I presented a picture of what I would like the cake to look like and we did a tasting while there. It is very informal. On the day of my wedding my mom was loosing it because it was 3:15pm and the cake was supposed to have been there before 2:00pm. Unfortunately there was a ton of traffic that day and it made the driver late. So during the ceremony they were putting the finishing touches on the cake and I was breathless when I saw it. It was better than I ever imagined it to be! Everyone kept commenting on how delicious it was!

I used the cake ladies for my wedding in Hampton, VA. I was planning from a distance so I was unable to meet with the ladies and had to go by reccomendations. I wanted a fondant cake because I wanted the smooth look of the sugar paste. I was charged double the price of using butter cream.($1000) Because they do not have e-mail or a website, I had to mail a photo of what I wanted. On the night of my wedding, I showed up to my reception and the cake not only looked nothing like the picture but it was a MESS!!! I was soooo dissapointed. It was the lowlight of my night. I couldn't believe they would even allow that disaster to leave their shop. Do not hire them!

My cake was delicious and beautiful and they were very helpful when we set everything up. The cake varied some from the picture that I picked, which was a little disappointing but not terrible. I also know of other people who have worked with them and had good experiences. Overall, it was a good experience and I would absolutely recommend them

The Cake Ladies did an absolutley wonderful job on my wedding cake. I had a design already in mind, and they were able to bring it to life to give me a one of a kind cake for my special day. They have so many flavor and filling combinations, and their cake tasting allows you to sample all of the variety. Even in the week or so before my event, I had some slight changes I wanted to make with the cake's decor and they were able to accomodate me, and willing to do so. They deliver the cake to your site and bring a repair kit just in case any touch ups are needed. They were so professional and friendly and I would definitely use them again for events in the future. My cake was not only beautiful, but was reasonably priced, and yummy!!

Saved the day for me! I had originally booked my cake from another bakery which closed a month before my wedding! I went to the Cake Ladies and was completely impressed with their professionalism and practicality. Their suggestions were unerring and much appreciated. They did a almond/red velvet marble cake with strawberry filling for me and the guests at my wedding were absolutely floored.

I got so many compliments on the cake, many people had a second piece and there was still plenty to go around. They also duplicated the design of my invitations on the top and sides of my cake and did a fantastic job.

The appointment area for brides at their office is the best of any I saw around the area and I went to quite a few tastings. It had a comfortable couch and was clean and neat. They also offer pictures of the actual cakes they've made instead of just magazine clippings, but were completely happy to do a custom design for me.

One thing to keep in mind is that they only offer tastings on the last Tuesday of every month!

Also, I've heard that they get booked up very quickly. I was lucky in that I was a last-minute addition but they still fit me in. Bless these ladies.
