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 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).

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!

I still crave my cake at least once a week. We ordered a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream filling and red velvet cake with cream cheese filling. It was seriously the best cake that I have EVER tasted, and my guests went on and on about how it was the best wedding cake they had as well. The cake also looked exactly like I requested...it was beautiful. A Cake Stand was very responsive. They got back to me quickly with their recommendations and called the day before to confirm my pick-up time. The company was professional and the results were delicious. They exceeded my high expectations. I'd recommend them for any occasion!

Lauren was a great person to work with, she was very patient with our choice. The cake turned out to be even better than we tasted it, and was decorated perfectly. It matched 100% what we had ordered. Great job guys, we can highly recommend them to anyone, who likes delicious cake and great service. Great price for the value.
