Lauren made a beautiful wedding cake. Our biggest issue, we were planning a wedding from a different city/state and we had one weekend to meet up and taste samples to choose the flavors for our 3 tier cake. She offered to drop them at our hotel but, she called last minute to say she wouldn't be able to make it. On the day of the wedding, the cake was delivered on time and very pretty, but, it was dry.

The cake stand responded with the following comments:

We work with a lot of out of town brides and we don't get bad reviews so, I feel that I should respond to this.
We normally don't offer tasting box deliveries to brides. I had only offered to drop off the tasting box to the hotel because the bride's schedule didn't allow for her to come pick up from our shop at her scheduled time. We had a very busy delivery schedule that day and it didn't work out with this additional delivery...I was very prompt in calling and apologetic and the apology was accepted.
We believe the cake wasn't served at the correct "room temp." and that it was probably still cold so, it probably seemed dry. We had a lot of cakes go out this weekend with other cakes made from this same "batch" that this wedding cake was from. This was the only complaint from that weekend and everyone else that we heard from (which was all the other weddings) said their cakes were awesome and delicious.
We will do a follow up with the venue to find out if they did refrigerate the cake after we told them not to.
We never want a bad review and we are sorry that these clients were not happy with their wedding cake. We will try getting in contact again with the clients to rectify the situation (we received one call with a message after their wedding and we did return their phone call that same day, but had to leave a message).

This was my favorite vendor I worked with during the wedding process. Our tasting with Lauren was very pleasant and filled with tons of samples. The cake the day of tasted amazing. Our guests raved about the coconut cake and the carrot cake. On top of that, the price for the cake was great. Thank you!

Lauren with The Cake Stand was fantastic! We were planning a Charleston wedding from out of town. During one of our "planning visits" to SC, we called and requested a tasting. Some bakeries require several forms be filled out and much advance notice. Lauren was able to work with our tight schedule and provided a free tasting with very little notice; the process was painless (which says a lot considering how difficult and stressful long distance wedding planning can be).

We are quite particular when we have a certain vision in mind. During the planning stages, my husband and I put together a powerpoint presentation of our dream wedding cake. The powerpoint wasn't pretty and wasn't perfect; but our wedding cake certainly was!!! From chunky, pieced together photos of different cakes, floral additions and icing designs, Lauren brought our vision to life and did so better than we could have imaged! It photographed lovely and tasted as good as it looked!

Great value, simple process, professional & friendly service and a lovely end product....couldn't ask for more than that!! We'd use and recommend The Cake Stand again for any event!!

Lauren and her husband were wonderful to work with! Not only do they have the best tasting cakes in Charleston, they also give you some things that most cake vendors won't. We had 2 separate cake tasting boxes made for us at no charge, and they give you a separate cake for your 1 year anniversary rather than using one of the layers from your wedding cake. I could not have been happier with how our cake turned out, and all our guests enjoyed it! Highly recommend!

The Cake Stand provided us with cupcakes and a top tier mini cake for our wedding. From the start Lauren was very responsive and helpful with all of our questions. I must admit I was not wowed when we picked up the sample box to taste at home since we were not able to make it in for a tasting. I think we probably should have let the samples come to room temperature more. The mini cake at our wedding tasted great though. I didn't get to try a cupcake the day of but the next day, I indulged on plenty. Even a day old, the cupcakes tasted fantastic. We had a few leftovers that we froze and those still taste great too.

This bakery was the third one I contacted to make a 'Madhatter' cake for my son's wedding. They were what I would expect of a quality business. The cake was beautiful, and most importantly, delicious. I definitely recommend them!

The Cake Stand made the most wonderful cake and cupcakes for our wedding!! We had a 6 inch cake for cutting that was so beautiful that I felt bad cutting into it! The wedding planners even took a picture. The cupcakes we served to our guests were so delicious and they told us all night long! They made it easy for serving since we were outside for dancing. Lauren was great through the whole process and was wonderful to work with!
