Working with The French Confection in Sandy Spring, MD was like working with a family friend. The cakes were very excellent and the variety of filling flavors was extreme. We had a hard time at the tasting trying to limit our choices since there were so many different combinations and tastes! The buttercream was light, creamy, and not too sweet - poerfect! Paring anywhere from one to three different fillings in a cake was a challenge for us. We ended up with four different cake flavors/fillings for the tiers. We even got the icing (buttercream) flavored on the outside as one of the inside fillings in the tier but still white so all four looked the same. One tier was their carrot cake and disapeared so fast, neither one of us got a bite! The carrot cake also had the traditional cream cheese icing. Our top may not make it until the anniversary since there was very little cake left over after the reception. We actually picked up our cake the day before since we were doing the individual tiers (non-stacked) on separate cake stands at different heights on the cake table with flowers and candles. The idea of separate stands was suggested and worked perfectly - cheaper too! Highly recommend this excellent bakery.

Karen and Xavier did a fantastic job with our wedding cake. I gave them a basic idea of the design I liked and let them be creative. I was thrilled with the result! Our cake was beautiful. All of the guests raved about how delicious the cake was and it disappeared quickly.

Our wedding cake tasted great and looked amazing. Simple, classic, elegant -- exactly what I was going for. They even matched the color I wanted perfectly. Karen is a pleasure to work with. And what other bakery offers you a free 10-serving tier of your wedding cake BEFORE you put down a deposit, to make sure you like their work and the flavors you chose? That is a bakery justifiably confident in their product! They also have a delicious gluten-free opera cake, so I was able to provide a cake for my gluten-allergic relatives. I plan to go back for more of that opera cake for birthdays and holidays. And the prices for wedding cakes at this bakery are a steal compared to DC/Bethesda/Silver Spring prices. Definitely worth the trip out to Sandy Spring!

Xavier and Karen Mauprivez are a dream to work with. We had a great "tasting session" where we got to try all the different types of cakes, fillings and frostings, and choose our favorite combinations. Karen was expert at making suggestions and ensuring that we got what we needed and wanted. The cake that Xavier created was both beautiful and delicious, just what we wanted. We get all of our special occasion cakes at the French Confection. They also made the cake for our "Meet the Family" dinner the day before the wedding.

Karen and Xavier created a fabulous cake for us, exactly the way we wanted it. We had three different flavor combinations in our 3 different tiers, and they all tasted amazing. We never had time to get the sample cake, so they gave it to us the day of our wedding. Tasted great, looked great. Perfect cake.
