I got both a wedding cake and a groom's cake from The Cake Studio of Ocean City and they were both amazing! At the tasting, my finace, my father and I all agreed that Darren's cakes were some of the best we've ever tasted. We ended up getting a simple buttercream cake with sugar flowers, with 3 flavors, the chocolate guiness cake, chocolate almond cake with espresso buttercream, and the Elvis cake with banana slices and peanut butter. For the groom's cake, we got an apple spice cake in the shape of a kettle grill. Both of the cakes were beautiful and incredible delicious

Darren is an amazing artist and baker!!! His cake studio was recommended to us by our venue and within the first few minutes sitting down with him at our initial meeting, we knew that he would be baking our dream wedding cake! He is so creative and drew a sketch of our cake while we were sitting there. His flavors are also AMAZING! Forget the plain jane flavors - his flavors are so unique and delicious! We loved the variety of choices that he offered and the personalized service. Darren designed our wedding cake to look like my wedding dress, and it was gorgeous! I was so surprised too that my family reached out to him to make my bridal shower cake, and that was a perfectly themed creation for my shower! He made hibiscus sugar flowers that are so lifelike it is unreal. I still have the flowers from my bridal shower cake because they are just too pretty to throw away!

Darren is an amazingly creative, talented baker! He made our wedding cake and it was absolutely perfect, his sugar flowers are SO gorgeous, and the cake is delicious. He is also extremely nice and accommodating, very open to changes in the designs as well. His talent also reaches into unusual cakes, as he made a Pittsburgh Penguin (Petey) cake for my husband as his grooms cake, and it was the most adorable thing ever!

Additionally, he doesn't believe in freezing the top layer of cake for the 1 year anniversary, and will make you a FRESH cake for it one year after your wedding!

My fiancé and I had the pleasure of working with Darren from the cake studio when planning our wedding cake. Darren is a true artist and one amazing baker! Matt and I loved the unique flavors that Darren had available ( I think there were over 20 to choose from). We decided on a key lime cake and it was amazing! Darren was able to listen to what I wanted for a design and sketch it right on the spot. Each cake that he makes has a one of a kind design! We loved working with Darren and would recommend him to any couple planning their wedding!

Darren was such a pleasure to work with, every step of the way! There was such a great selection of flavors to choose from and we were able to sample four delicious flavors during our tasting. Our cake came out beautifully and the details were stunning. It was clear that a great deal of thought and effort went into making the cake perfect!

Darren is by far THE BEST baker and decorator in South Jersey. My father, brother and I went in for a tasting with Darren and were absolutely blown away by the flavor and quality of his cakes compared to other bakeries we tried in the area. The minute we walked out, I knew Darren's skills would give me a wedding cake that far exceeded the blandness I was used to as a wedding guest.

Darren was easy to communicate with via email or phone through the entire process, although sometimes a little delayed, which I did not mind. I gave Darren inspiration photos and he drew up something unique, yet definitely within the theme I provided. The result on my wedding day was exactly as he had sketched and using all the details and colors we had discussed. Most impressive were his very detailed, realistic sugar flowers - they were stunning! And of course, the cake tasted exactly like it did during the tasting; we chose the Summer and Key Lime Pie flavors - both are amazing!

I highly recommend Darren for both his artistry and culinary expertise. I would not even consider another baker in the area, no matter how much cheaper they are. Darren is truly a master of his craft and as they say, you get what you pay for, but he is completely affordable and I love that he includes an anniversary cake - I'm already looking forward to it!!!
