Great tasting Cupcakes!!! We really enjoyed the tasting for sure!!! My husband and I were not sure if we wanted a traditional cake or cupcakes, which would allow for a larger variety. After we met with the lady at Icing (sorry, I can't remember her name), we knew cupcakes were the way to go for us. The best part about this particular choice is we still got our traditional cake for the "cutting the cake" part of the reception and Icing provides you a gift certificate for a fresh cake for your 1st anniversary!!! We choose about five different flavors of cupcakes and they all were awesome!!! Certainly would recommend Icing to future Brides and Grooms!!!

I found The Icing on Wedding Wire and I decided to check them out. Thank God I did!! We went to a cake tasting and oh my were we impressed. Let me just add that I'm not a "sweets" or "desserts" kind of person so I just wanted my husband to like it. It was literally the best tasting cakes I've ever had. We were so lucky that we were able to get a couture cake because we honestly didn't know what we wanted...just that we wanted our colors and flower incorporated into the design. We first told Lynn that we were going to have about 125 guests and she told us right off the bat that she likes height and drama and we could count on servings for 175+ guests. She was not kidding! We ended up having about 140 guests and so much cake left over! It was so good! We had three different flavors. Our favorite was Citrus Blossom. The design was absolutely beautiful.

I'm so glad they have a kiosk station in Potomac Mills where I always have to pick up a cupcake or two.

Also they did my husband's birthday cake last year which I believe was a Fall classic flavor with a Redskins theme. Everyone loved it, especially him. So I will be going through them again for another cake of course!

Hands down this was the best DREAM cake for my daughter’s wedding… I would recommend The Icing to everyone! Our cake was a three tier cupcake cake with a three tier wedding cake on top. Everyone at the reception only had great comments on it. We had many flavors and no leftovers, everyone went for seconds Awesome company, I will definitely be using them again… The wedding was fabulous and truly a fairytale event, my daughter and new son were extremely happy.
Thank you,

I can't say enough of how much i loved my cake from the Icing! I have to say its the best wedding cake i've ever had. I got so many good complements about my cake. Everyone keep on talking about how tasty and moist it was. The best part of it all is to know how patient the owner and staff was throughout my planning process. I was very fussy in what i wanted, and kept changing how i wanted it to look, but they were very professional, and very patient with me. Another big plus is they don't believe in freezing your cake, so they bake you a fresh one for your first anniversary. Really looking forward to that.

I came to The Icing based off a recommendation from my caterer (A Taste of Elegance), not only are their cakes beautiful they're also delicious (which is the most important part). Their cake designer is very receptive to ideas and makes every cake unique to the couple ordering it. Their prices were reasonable for cakes of their quality and they'll work with you to stay within your budget.

They give the bride and groom one cupcake of each cake flavor to take on their honeymoon, and a coupon for a free new top tier for their first anniversary so there's no year-old stale cake taking up room in your freezer, which is always appreciated.

I couldn't have been happier with The Icing. We were looking for about 100 servings and the first baker we met with wanted over $1100! So the search continued. The Icing was the third place we sampled and we knew they were the one after the first bite. We got to pick two flavors (that was NOT included with the $1100 baker!) and that was really hard because we liked most of their cakes, frostings, etc.

At the wedding, many of our guests took photos of the cake because it was so beautifully decorated. Also, I don't think any cake was left behind. It was all either eaten at the wedding or taken home by guests for leftovers.

I also love that you get a voucher for a free anniversary cake. We moved cross-country just before our wedding and they said that if we pay for the shipping, they'll ship our anniversary cake to us. Awesome!

I learned about The Icing at a bridal show, when I tried a sample of their Citrus Blossom and Creme Brulee cake. Love at first bite! Not to mention that that they use organic ingredients, a huge plus.

Their service was spectacular. They were incredibly patient and helpful through all stages of the process, from the consultation to the big day!

I cannot overstate how delicious their cake is. My husband and I can't wait for our first anniversary cake!

The Icing Baking company is by far the best bakery around! They have an amazing and friendly staff, everybody was very helpful. The cupcakes and cakes there are amazing, and taste great! The cakes are moist, and never dry...the icing is also thick and creamy. They have a wide variety of flavors so you will have plenty too pick from to make your perfect wedding cake/cupcake trays for your special day. They also schedule a consultation so the bride/groom can meet with the baker and try the cake flavors, cupcakes, and icings, to select the one they want. Our wedding cake turned out beautiful and tasted great :)!

I tried some other vendors before selecting The Icing to provide a topper cake and cupcakes for my wedding. The cake and cupcakes were delicious and reasonably priced for such quality items. My family and guests loved the variety of cupcakes offered at my wedding and were happy to take the leftovers home. I was even told by some that they ate 2 or 3 by themselves because they were so good. I highly recommend them for all your cake and cupcake needs!

Our guests were floored not only at how beautiful our wedding cake was, but also at how great it tasted! We had lots of people going back for seconds, so that they could try both amazing flavors. I also surprised my husband with a groom's cake at our rehearsal dinner, and they surpassed my highest expectations with the intricacy of the cake. The value of their cakes is incredible - I was expecting to pay quite a bit more after having done some research online about prices in the area, especially given the unique design we wanted. I'm so glad we picked the Icing to do our cake!

My first taste of The Icing's cake was at the Bridal Expo in Fredericksburg. It was so outstanding (moist and delicious) even with all the dozens of cake vendors there, that I knew immediately I wanted The Icing to make my wedding cake. Lucky me, I was able to get a Couture cake. The anticipation of what it would look like kept me on pins and needles. It was exceptionally beautiful and exceeded anything I could have imagined. Not only that, but it tasted even better than it looked. The cake was moist, and the fillings flavorful. Even the fondant was delicious. I have since ordered their cupcakes for a party we had. They too were yummy!

I don't even know where to begin with the cake! Can you say AMAZING!!!! Wow from the difficult design I gave them that they had never done before to the taste of the cake all I can say is wow! They did such an amazing job! The quality and detail of the cake was exact to what I requested and I have to say hands down i have never tasted a cake that tasted better than the one they did for us on our wedding day! I highly recommend The Icing cakes for all your events! Love the fact they give you a certificate for your 1 year anniversary and make the top layer of your cake fresh!

Thank you so much for a fantastic job!

I got married last year, and I had my wedding cake done by The Icing. I highly recommend them! We were able to go to an open house and try all of their flavors. Everything was tasty, but we ended up deciding to have butter pecan and strawberry. They were both excellent and our cake was beautiful. The cake had 80 servings and we had 50 guests, but we had almost nothing left after the reception! Definitely a great vendor. We've even gone back a few times just for cupcakes!

My husband and I first discovered The Icing at a wedding open house at Fauquier Springs Country Club. The cake was so delicious that we figured it would be out of our price range! We arranged a cake testing with them and were blown away by the options and the fact that they were willing to incorporate every detail that we wanted into the cake. The price was extremely reasonable and the cake itself was not only gorgeous but it was absolutely delicious! We have been to many other weddings this year and people keep talking about how wonderful our cake was in comparison! Even though we got married on a holiday (New Year's Eve), we never had to worry once about the cake and we were thrilled with the customer service. I would highly recommend The Icing to any bride!

My husband and I first discovered The Icing at a wedding open house at Fauquier Springs Country Club. The cake was so delicious that we figured it would be out of our price range! We arranged a cake testing with them and were blown away by the options and the fact that they were willing to incorporate every detail that we wanted into the cake. The price was extremely reasonable and the cake itself was not only gorgeous but it was absolutely delicious!

I really enjoyed working with the Ladies at "The Icing Cakes" (I know there is a man or two helping them) but The Ladies really rocked it with the grooms surprise cake and the WEDDING Cupcakes!! They did not cancel my one and only in-person appointment, even when they lost power and most of the mid atlantic area was without power! They were creative when I needed help figuring out how to surprise and impress my future husband. They have a great selection of ideas ! We did an assortment of cupcakes that were delicious, and I must give a shout-out to one of the owners SON, he is behind the BIG OINK (bacon cupcake). My husband and I loved it and still love it !! It is a little sweet and savory all in one !! The team worked well with our venue concerning set up and pick-up etc. Cheers to Icing Cake team and any NEW Bride that gets to work with them!! ps- all our guest loved the cupcakes and the flavors !

I had an Icing cake as the result of my contract with Osprey's Landing. Booking the tasting was very easy and fun. We surprisingly picked a strawberry shortcake and I was SO pleased with the results once our wedding rolled around. The cake was three tiered with sugar fall flowers and leaves cascading down the front. Not only was it beautiful, it was delicious! I had people tell me it was the best wedding cake they ever had. The Icing also provided my husband and I with our own personal cupcakes that we enjoyed the next day. And best of all, The Icing provides you with a cake on your one year anniversary so you don't have to save your top tier for a year. We had a wonderful experience with The Icing and will be using them again.

My wedding was on 10-11-12, and I had been told by other friends that this place had really great looking cakes. I was able to sample their cake against other vendors at a bridal show at Potomac point winery. I do not usually like sweet treats, but I loved their cakes. We choose them for our wedding cake and our guests have reached out to me several times and have chosen them for their own parties/events. The process was very easy for the wedding and the person that helped us along the way did a sketch of our cake that I was able to have as a keep sake. Since my wedding, we recently had a gender reveal party and used them for that cake. Once again, such perfect design and fantastic, fluffy cake. Really the best option, and they are only 30 minutes from me.

My husband and I ordered our wedding cake from The Icing, and we would highly recommend them. We thoroughly enjoyed the cake tasting and consultation. Who wouldn't with all the yummy cake, fillings, and icing? They were very helpful in directing us toward the right size cake for the number of guests and in determining the overall design of the cake. They didn't even cringe when I called a month later and wanted to make a few changes.

I also ordered my husband a surprise groom's cake. I sent The Icing an email explaining that I wanted it to have a Las Vegas theme and I told them a few things he enjoyed doing in Vegas. The groom's cake looked fantastic, my husband loved it, and it was one of the most talked about items at the wedding!

Oh yeah....the cakes didn't just look good, they tasted amazing! My guests were literally taking multiple slices of cake home with them as they left for the night.

I was extremely happy with the service provided. I actually thought she was booked up for the weekend of my wedding. I started taking a picture of a cake she had done to other vendors with no luck of anything that even came close. In the end she had an opening if I could come get the cake, and then when I went to order it her other wedding had changed times and it worked out perfectlyfor her to deliever it. I got the exact cake I wanted and it was by far the thing I was most proud of and excited about at the reception. Too bad I didn't get more than one bite. She was awesome about giving us a seperate honeymoon cake as well as an anniversary cake, so I'll get to have some more in a few months... sooo yummy...and sooo pretty!!!

We used The Icing as part of our package with Osprey's Landing. The tasting was a nice experience. I described my ideal cake design and the cake decorators nailed it. It was nice that they delivered the cake and set it up on the cake table on the day of the wedding so that I didn't have to worry about doing that. We were surprised that there were bride & groom cupcakes at our sweetheart table - we didn't know they were going to do that. It was so hectic at the wedding that we actually didn't get a piece of cake but the good thing about that is that we have a coupon for a free anniversary cake to eat one year from our wedding date...and it'll be made fresh rather than frozen for a whole year. I would definitely recommend The Icing for any future brides!

I could not believe the detail and quality of the cake decorations for our wedding cake. The Icing went beyond both my wife's and my expectations and our cake was just ourstanding. We had a medieval/enchanted theme and the cake was designed like a castle with a dragon crawling up the side and a fairy on the top of the castle. When I first saw the cake I was stunned by how well it was put together and the detail that The Icing used. Both the fairy and dragon popped out from the cake and the detail on each was amazing. They did such a great job that they receive top marks from me. Oh I alomst forgot to mention the the cake was so delicious also and everyone enjoyed it.

The wedding cake was amazing! Numerous people were talking about it the next day as they munched away on the leftovers! The vendor was great to meet and sit down to discuss the cake ideas and flavors as she sketched out the ideas for the cake. The taste testing made me want to have every flavor as an option! If fact after the tasting we went back and bought a variety of cupcakes to simply enjoy! The cake was very creative as the top of the cake had two people made of icing. Of course it was us, the bride and groom, in our common style of athletic clothes. We loved it! Such great detail! Also, even though the vendor was located in Stafford, VA they were able to deliver the cake to the National Harbor! I definitely would recommend this vendor to every bride and groom.

My husband and I recently used The Icing for our wedding reception which included a decorated cake as well as cupcakes for the guests. Not only was everything delicious but as a Bride that put the entire wedding together herself, I never had to worry about anything. They set everything up for the reception and were extremely cooperative. We thoroughly enjoyed the taste testing sampling that they provided. Not only did they have several cake and icing flavors but also various fillings that they can incorporate into the cakes. My only regret or wish was that I could have more flavors as everything I have tried there has been delicious. They also allowed us to come up with flavors that they would do for us for our special day that they normally don't do on a day to day basis as their cupcake flavors are seasonal. We recommend them for everything from weddings, to baby showers, or even just cupcakes for a work function. Lynn and her staff were accommodating and easy to work with. I cannot thank them enough for their courtesy and professionalism.

The Icing came into my life when things were turned upside down, AND I'm so glad they did!
I was blown away when I went in for the tasting, especially after some other tastings I had experienced.
They took the picture I gave them and did an amazing job replicating it. They took time to sit down and sketch out and design our cake. My cake was pretty “simple”, but I know that no matter what I had asked for they could have made it exactly how I had dreamed.
Although the design and look of the cake is important it’s not the most important thing though...the most important thing is that their cakes are the BEST cake I've ever had. I had many wedding cakes covered in fondant and every time I’ve ended up peeling it off and throwing it away…but not my wedding cake! They use very high quality fondant and it was delicious!!
I didn’t know about them before the wedding planning process, but now that I know where the bakery is, I'm in there for every special occasion cake I need.

The Icing came into my life when things were turned upside down, AND I'm so glad they did!
I was blown away when I went in for the tasting, especially after some other tastings I had experienced.
They took the picture I gave them and did an amazing job replicating it. They took time to sit down and sketch out and design our cake. My cake was pretty “simple”, but I know that no matter what I had asked for they could have made it exactly how I had dreamed.
Although the design and look of the cake is important it’s not the most important thing though...the most important thing is that their cakes are the BEST cake I've ever had. I had many wedding cakes covered in fondant and every time I’ve ended up peeling it off and throwing it away…but not my wedding cake! They use very high quality fondant and it was delicious!!
I didn’t know about them before the wedding planning process, but now that I know where the bakery is, I'm in there for every special occasion cake I need. Read less

We used them for our wedding on May 1st at the Rock Hill Plantation and they were amazing! So easy to work with and they make the best cakes! We had a cupcake cake and it was great because we were able to use different flavors! (try the bacon cupcake). Not only was the set up beautiful but all the flavors were great. Our top cake for us to cut was a chocolate mint and let me tell you it was amazing! If you walk into their store you will be forced to try something because everything looks so great!

Lynnette Drake, owner of The Icing simply makes the best cakes, cupcakes I have ever tasted !!! She not only made my daughter's wedding cake, but made cupcakes for her shower as well. At both events our guests raved about her cakes, many requests for seconds !!! She uses all organic ingredients, only the very finest chocolate etc.; she creates her own unique flavors, and her Red Velvet and Pink Champagne wedding cake {ours} is to die for. Guests asked for her address and phone number !! You owe it to yourself to make a quick trip to Stafford, Va. to experience Lynnette's creations !! Thanks ! Chris {mom of the bride}

The Icing is wonderful. The whole staff is friendly and very good at what they do. We decided to go with a square cake and we didn't do a wedding topper. Instead we had them put sugar flowers going around the cake. It turned out perfectly. And the pearls matched my dress :) The flavors were amazing and everyone loved them. We went with mint chocolate chip and pink champagne. We definitely liked the fact that they allow you 2 flavors of your choice, one for the bride and one for the groom. They are well worth the money. Thank you guys so much for making our day special.

My wedding cake could not have been more perfect! Lynnette & her design team helped us design a cake that was for our wedding- not cookie cutter from a book. It was everything we hoped for and more. The flavor selections were amazing- we had such a hard time choosing 2! Our guests were amazed at how moist and delicious the cake was- the best wedding cake anyone had ever had. I can’t imagine why anyone would be unhappy- Lynnette always got back in touch with us within a day & made suggestions when we needed it.
Her staff even bright along cupcakes for the kids at our wedding with only one day notice!
Thanks for making our wonderful day even better!

We order a “couture” cake from The Icing-so we gave them guidelines and let them have creative freedom. It was the only surprise at my wedding and I was so excited. They not only met, but exceeded my expectations!
The entire art staff at The Icing is amazing. They hand painted the entire cake and It was superb!
I was really surprised at the pricing. The Icing initially seemed more expensive, but when I visited with other bakers and they added on for every detail, filling and change The Icing was actually completely reasonable. They were up front about everything- there were no hidden charges no matter what flavor we chose- and they were all delicious!

Our wedding cake was absolutely beautiful, but most importantly, it tasted wonderful. I have been to a couple of weddings where the cake looked great, but it tasted horribly. Not Ours!!! The icing did a fabulous job at creating a red black and white cake for our special day. Everyone raved over this cake because it wasnt the traditional, boring, wedding cake that you normally would see. We chose the flavors, strawberry cream/pink champagne and we couldnt have been more excited about our choices. The icing will be my one stop shop for cakes and "sweets" from here on out!

I went to The Icing with a picture of what I wanted for my wedding cake and they were able to turn that picture in to a reality for me. The cake was beautiful and more so it tasted absolutely delicious! I received a lot of compliments from my guest about the moistness and flavor of the cake as well as the fondant. The Icing also included a small honeymoon and anniversary cake so we didn't have to remember to get the reception staff to save the top portion of the cake for us. They also provided us with a taste testing before hand so we had a good idea of what the final product would taste like. They had more than enough flavors to choose from which made our decision very difficult. We also provided The Icing with a cookie cutter that they used to make our cookie favors. This was one of my favorite details of the wedding because it was so personal and they did such a wonderful job making the cookies for us. Oh, and they tasted wonderful! We HIGHLY recommend The Icing and hope that some day we will be able to use them again for one of our events!

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!!!!! My wedding cake was beautiful, elegant and tasted so good we couldn't stop eating it.

Lynette was the best vendor I worked with during my wedding plaining. She was easy going, professional and by far the nicest person I had to deal with. Our wedding tood place in October so we went with a Fall Leaf theme and Lynette took the colors of my bridesmaids dresses so the leaves on the cake would match thier dresses perfectly.

I would recomend Lynette to everyone that wants a cake in this area. I will use her again for special birthdays, anniversarys and baby showers or bridal showers that are in the future. I can't thank her enough for what she did to my cake!!!!

It was on time, Lynette stayed in close contact regarding details and was very professional. All the guests raved about the cake and my daughter and son-in-law LOVED it. It was pink champagne flavor - delicious! The entire experience with The Icing was perfect!

The Icing did an amazing job on our wedding cake! A cake is a wonderful way to tie in you color theme so I was very particular about what I wanted my cake to look like. My colors were black, red, with pops of white. All the pictures I saw of cakes were either white and red or black and white. During our appointment they came up with the idea to do a black cake with red and white roses and I loved it! The cake came out beautiful and our guests thought the cake was so unique!

The cake tasted just as good as it looked! We went to an event before our wedding day where we were able to taste all the flavors, we picked the two we loved and they did not disappoint!

My husband and I just celebrated our one year anniversary and tasted a small piece of cake we froze and it was still delicious!

I would recommend The Icing to anyone getting married!

The Icing was professional and courteous, plus their cakes were beautiful AND delicious. What more could you ask for from a company. I will be recomending them for everything from a dozen cupcakes to another wedding cake. The only thing they don't offer are gluten free options but that's not too big of a deal. Plus for wedding cakes they give you a certificate for a new cake top on your first anniversary, so you don't have to eat year old frozen cake.

Our wedding was Oct. 16, 2011. We met for our consultation and were given design books to look at . We were also presented with delicious samples of cakes and fillings to choose from. They were so good we couldn't decide then, but were assured we could decide later. I showed them the design I had come up with and was assured it wouldn't be a problem to create. The price of our cake was reasonable and we also purchased our topper. The Icing also delivered our cake on a Sunday, which most places would not do! On our wedding day, I was estatic when I saw our cake- it was exactly what I imagined and had pictured! The colors matched our wedding colors perfectly!! When we cut into our cake, it was fresh, moist and sooo delicious! I can assure you I had plenty of each flavor. We also received many compliments from our guests- on both the taste and appearance! My husband and I have and would recommend The Icing to anyone!

If you're looking for an affordable, pretty wedding cake, this is the place to go. We got a grape-covered economical cake that served 70 people. (Grapes made sense because our reception was at a winery, Potomac Point Winery, right up the road from The Icing.) It was a delicious white cake with raspberry filling. Their prices are really reasonable and it's a good cake. It was very beautiful.

For flexibility, two things: they don't deliver, so someone has to pick up the cake and deliver it to the venue. My dad did this. Second, they have limited hours on Saturdays. Still, an amazing value for a cake and worth the extra trouble.

Wedding cakes are just cakes; they don't need to be expensive! They have five "templates" for cakes and they all are pretty - I highly recommend them if you're looking to save money!

The Icing Baking Company responded with the following comments:

Thank you for the wonderful compliment Aileen! We are always so excited to be a part of a bride’s special day!
We actually do offer delivery on our custom cakes, but the Simple Elegance cakes you are referring to are not available for delivery- that is one of the ways we can offer these cakes at such a discount.
Congratulations on your new life- we look forward to seeing you here at the bakery!

This was the best cake I ever had! We went around and tried a few places but their cake blew me away! There was so many cake flavors and all of them were so good! we had the spring cake and strawberry champagne and they were sooo good! I am so excited for our anniversary cake that they make fresh for us on our 1 year! The only thing was that the price was higher than I thought it should be. Since my family was helping out I could afford it! Everything looked exactly how I wanted it to look though! I would not have had a different baker!

The Icing did a fabulous job on our wedding cake. We had a four tier round fondant. They are extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. My only complaint is that they are a bit expensive but in the end the cake was delicious and absolutely beautiful so it was well worth the money.

I loved the Icing! Their work is just wonderful. My fiance and I wanted a sculpture cake and I was a little nervous. Sure, they look great on Cake Boss or Ace of Cakes, but at a local bakery? Yes! Our sculpture was of a mountain with a waterfall, campsite, figures of us and various animals and it turned out great. And from looking at their books I could see that the more traditional cakes look great too, they are especially good with their fondant work. And if my fiance wasn't set on red velvet I would have had a hard time picking the flavor. The flavors I tried were amazing and they have quite a selection.

One other thing I have to mention that really set this vendor apart from a lot of others. While I was planning my wedding my fiance was deployed and due to the nature of his deployment, we didn't have a solid homecoming day/week. So we had to ask every vendor what would happen if we had to change the wedding date. The Icing was the most flexible with us by far. A lot of vendors will tell you they want to "help make your day special" but I felt like they really meant it. I would highly recommend this bakery to anyone!

Lynn and her team provided a completely unforgettable wedding cake. First, I was floored by the option of having two different kinds of cakes, but they were unbelievably moist and tasty. There has been an on-going debate with our guests as to which cake was their favorite! I'm anxious to taste my one year anniversary cake!

Since our wedding was not in the delivery area, they packed the cake so well that it survived a several hour drive by a friend, without a blemish on it. It was beautiful.

I will gladly visit again for other kinds of cakes.

The Icing was the best choice I could have made for a cake! I met Lynnette/The Icing at a bridal show and was blown away by the taste of the cakes! I scheduled a consultation/tasting even though I knew I was hiring her even before I went, I had to let my fiancé taste for himself! We decided on two flavors for the cake - Black and White (chocolate and white chocolate cake with milk & white chocolate mousses) and the Spring Classic (White cake with raspberry coulis & lemon cheesecake). As a surprise for my fiancé, Lynnette also created a Boston Red Sox cake for his groom's cake complete with Boston Creme Pie flavor (white cake with chocolate ganache and vanilla crème). The Black/White and Spring Classic cakes were wonderful but the Boston Creme Pie cake was without a doubt, THE BEST cake I have ever eaten. Trust me, I have a sweet tooth and have tasted lots of cakes in my day!

And, the greatness doesn't end with the taste! The cakes are as beautiful as they taste! I wanted a somewhat contemporary cake and Lynnette captured my vision completely and delivered a gorgeous wedding cake! People are still telling me (a month later) how beautiful the cake was and how good it tasted. As previously mentioned, Lynnette also created a Red Sox themed cake for my fiancé. It was a baseball diamond with a true-to-size Red Sox hat sitting on the top. Everyone thought the hat was real and kept touching it because they couldn't get over the fact that the hat was actually cake! It was a hit and the talk of the rehearsal dinner!

I am beyond pleased and would highly recommend The Icing! I can't wait to order another cake! : )

The Icing staff were wonderful. We used live flowers for the topper and the artist bride designed the shape and decorations. The Icing staff were open working with the bride and family members coordinating everything over a long distance from tasting and design to delivery and set up. The end result was stunning and the champagne cake was to die for. Others loved the alternating layers of chocolate raspberry truffle (especially the groom). The Icing was definitely the best choice.

THE CAKE WAS DELICIOUS. Everyone said so - not just us (who picked our favourite flavours). It was SOOOOOO good!!!

We chose a ganache covering instead of fondant (1st bride in 5 years apparently), and it's the most delicious thing ever. Because they use all natural products (no wax or crisco added), they were very concerned that the ganache might look lumpy or fall if it was too humid. We didn't care though - it was so good that if you covered a shoe with it, you'd probably still want to eat the shoe. (At least, we would consider it... ;-)) We had a spoon-textured cake with sugar flowers instead of a painted design, and it was gorgeous - no troubles at all!

And just in case you're wondering - the inside of the cake was as delicious as the outside!

The only issue we had was that they are sometimes slow to respond to emails (once or twice they didn't respond), but when we called they had all the necessary info, so if that was the only problem... not too bad, eh?

We also like that instead of having you freeze the top of the cake, they give you a coupon for a free (fresh) anniversary cake to be used in the first year of your marriage.

(Did I mention how phenomenonally delicious the cake was?!?)

I was not expecting to see my cake the day of the wedding look even better than the picture I had shown. Not only was it beautiful, the flavor so chose were unique (pink champagne and citrus blossom.) amazing! I am still getting compliments from the guests!!

Our experience with The Icing was a positive one. The cake was as good as it looked! We were not surprised as we often purchase their cupcakes, however it was nice to receive many compliments from guests regarding how beautiful the cake looked and how delicious it tasted. We are already looking forward to our anniversary cake! There are a few minor things that can be improved that we would like to comment on. First, we understand that The Icing is very popular in the area and so they are very busy. However, during a few of the times I tried communicating with them via email or phone, I felt as though they were rushing. For instance, on one occasion I was asked for information I had already emailed them and on another they didn't answer all of my questions so I had to email them again. Secondly, the cake design we decided to go with included embossing. The staff was helpful and made suggestions based on this new design. I provided a picture of the cake requested and a pattern was ordered. During a visit to the store I asked to see the pattern and was told that it usually is not shown to the customer. The resulting cake was beautiful however the embossing was very subtle. From a short distance the cake looked like it had plain fondant on it and most guests did not notice the embossing until it was pointed out (and they came in extremely close distance to the cake). Also during my visit, the designer had mentioned applying a shimmery mist to the embossed fondant to make it stand out however this was not done. Despite the few things that could be improved, the cake looked beautiful and was delicious!

I cannot say enough about this little hidden gem! While planning my wedding I happened to get an advertisement via email and was impressed with the flavor choices and designs of the cake. Having a couple of disastorous tastings at our local bakeries and not being overly impressed with the bakery website photos of wedding cakes I decided to just pop by the bakery and pick up some cupcakes to try on my own. I have tried several of the popular "fad" style cupcake bakeries and always disappointed...definitely not the case with The Icing! I was unbelievably impressed with their cupcakes. Simply amazing! I set-up a tasting and the owner met with us herself. The tasting was amazing and not only professional but delicious! After discussing what our design ideas were we left ecstatic with choosing The Icing to do our wedding cake. We ordered a two tier wedding cake along with several dozen cupcakes. We cannot express how pleased we were with the end result. They matched our colors perfectly and the design of the cake was EXACTLY what we asked for. If you are looking for DELICIOUS and reasonably priced than this is definitely the bakery for you. I would highly recommend them to any bride and definitely think if you go for a tasting you will definitely walk away with the same opinion that I have!

The cake was the best wedding cake I have ever tasted in my life! We got two flavors: Pink Champagne (amazing!) and a chocolate gnache with vanilla cream. Both were out of this world! The cake was beautiful with real looking sugar flowers. My only grip is that she, Lynnette, was a little hard to get ahold of and the cake was a little on the expensive side... but it was all completely worth it. I am so excited to eat my anniversary cake.. which she gives as a gift for you to wrap & freeze! I highly recommend her!!

Mrs. Drake has a wonderful cake business! First, of all the wedding cakes we tried, Mrs Drake has the most flavorful and moist cakes we found! She never freezes the cakes so they're always fresh (which we really appreciated). She also only does one wedding a week so there are no other customers competing for her attention when it comes down to crunch time. She was also very flexible with her designs allowing me to come up with a completely original design and not stick to only designs in a book. The day of the wedding the cake arrived right on time! We only had one issue which was the bottom layer of cake was very soft and the cater wasn't able to serve it. Otherwise, I would recommend The Icings to any wedding party!

I absolutely loved my cake. It tasted so wonderful, and was very moist. The colors matched just right to the colors I asked for. They provide you with an anniversary cake, so you dont have to save the top teir of the actual wedding cake, which is just great! They have very original flavors that will please everyone!
I got a cake topper made of icing. This was the only part that I was disappointed in. The grooms arm looked like it had fallen off and cracked and was just stuck back on, the brides gown was cracked. And the football jersey that the groom was not the color that I had specifed it was supposed to be.

The Icing made us a fantastic cake for a good price. Even more impressive: we had no idea what it would look like. At a discounted rate, they made us a cake if we gave them artistic freedom (with some guidance from us, of course). The cake turned out beautiful! We were a little wary, since the cakes at the tasting were dry and they were slow to respond, but the actual cake was super moist and delicious.

I'm sure the cake wasn't perfect, but it was a hit, and unlike some of these other fruitcakes posting reviews, we were out to enjoy our wedding.. not stress out and hunt for flaws!

I chose to celebrate my wedding with a small 6" cake and 18 dozen cupcakes. After visiting four cupcake bakeries in the vicinity, none could hold a candle to the quality at The Icing. We selected six different flavors, each was decorated simply but beautifully. None of my guests could stop at eating just two, and everyone took a few home with them! That said, I was a little put off by an unexpected delivery fee (which the owner was kind enough to reduce by half due to my misunderstanding) and their adamant refusal to provide signage for the different types of cupcakes. I also had a scare a couple days before the wedding. The check my parents mailed to them had not arrived and they wanted payment by end of business day, THAT DAY, and it couldn't be over the phone. Blessedly, my father was already in town and ran over with a credit card. Turns out the suite number for The Icing was not the on invoice and the post would not deliver without it. All said, I would not chose another baker. No one makes a better tasting cake in Virginia. And I'll be sneaking back into the store for more for the rest of my life!

The Icing provided delicious cake and pies for our wedding!! We recommend the coconut, pecan and apple pies!! They went faster than the cake! Were not big cake eaters, but we were impressed with how moist and flavorful the cake was. We chose chocolate and raspberry and pink champagne with white chocolate and raspberry. The cake was delivered on time and looked beautiful on the table. The best part was taste testing. The staff was very courteous our wants and needs and gave us time to decided on our designs and flavor selections. We even changed our cake design the month before and there were no issues. We had enough food for everyone with little leftover, so nothing went to waste!

The cake was great, everybody at the wedding loved it. The Icing has a lot of unique flavor combinations and everything tasted so good. The final cake wasn't exactly what I had pictured, but it was still pretty. I did have a little bit of a wait when I was trying to get the final invoice, but everything was worked out and it went well. We also got a cake for the rehearsal dinner which was also not as I had pictured it, but it was good as well. We were also given a "honeymoon tier" and "anniversary tier" as well as the display cake, so we are looking forward to that.

I did not get a cake tasting with this vendor and this disappointed me greatly. We walked into our appointment excited because everyone knows how exciting cake tastings are! Turns out, there was no tasting, only sitting there talking about what kind of design we wanted and what flavors we liked. We ended up going with a Simple Elegance (meaning simply decorated)cake because it was much less expensive than an elaborately decorated cake. It was 3 white tiers with a colored ribbon around the bottom of each layer. The cake ended up looking VERY plain and my florist fixed it up. I never saw it look plain because my florist took it upon himself to fix it up so in the end it just looked amazing. The cake was DELICIOUS though. It was so moist and flavorful that it makes me want to get our anniversary cake out of the freezer right now and eat it. With the Simple Elegance cake, delivery was not included, but when my caterer (Caroline Street Catering) found out, she called in a favor and they agreed to deliver my cake for me. My vendors rocked :)

Lynette Drake at the Icing does a fantastic job. No matter what you want your wedding cake to look like, she can do it! She is extremely talented. The cakes are a bit pricey, but definitely worth it. Every last piece was absolutely deliscious! I was a little leary at first in using Lynette, only due to the price (I was on a very tight budget), but I would definitely recommend using her! My cake was more beautiful than I had ever imagined and turned out to be one of my favorite things about my wedding day. I will never forget how beautiful my cake looked.

We decided to have our cake made by "The Icing" because of the amazing flavors that Lynnette makes. None of the other cake companies we looked into had anything like what she makes. We met with her for a tasting which was wonderful. We got to try pretty much every flavor combination and Lynnette drew out what we wanted our cake to look like. The day of the cake arrived on time.
On our contract we had determined that we would send Lynnette a paint swatch so that she could match the "ribbon" on the cake to our wedding colors (hot pink). The day of Lynnetter arrived with the cake and ribbon on the cake was "baby pink" and looked horrible with our wedding colors. She claimed that she did not receive our paint swatch in the mail. If that was the case, I would have expected Lynnette to call me before she started to make the cake to inquire about the actual color that we wanted. Instead she just decided to just make the cake with a random color. We were obviously upset about the situation because when you spend $700 on a cake you expect it to be what you ordered. Lynnette did leave the club immediately and went to a craft store and bought hot pink ribbon and came back and "fixed" the cake. I was happy with the final result but I could have done without the added stress on my wedding day.

There are really only 2 good things I can say about The Icing. The cakes are beautiful and delicious and you have a few options for a reasonable prices (if you dare ask about them).

Their customer service; however, leaves a lot to be desired. They offer very reasonably priced "Simple Elegance" Cakes that are not custom and offer limited choices on colors, fillings, flavors etc.... my husband and I were fine with their choices but when we expressed interest in these more affordable cakes (a custom on by them would have cost more than double), we immediately recieved attitudes and were informed in a round about way that these cakes are designed for military couples who are on a budget and have to plan their weddings quickly. We were not military couple- just a young couple looking for a way to have an attractive, tasty cake without breaking our budget. We were rudely informed of the limited options offered for these cakes and left alone to chose which design we liked based off of a print off with 2 inch images. No one checked on us, offered to answer any questions, or anything. We chose the cake, signed the contract, paid the invoice and were told when and where to pick it up.

If it weren't for the price of the cake I would have walked right out of the shop.

I used the Icing for my wedding cake and wedding favors (cookies). I was very disappointed with my wedding cake. I paid a little over $800 dollars for one of their couture cakes. I gave the baker lots of ideas for our general theme of the wedding (vintage, books, etc.). I knew going into it that a couture cake gives the baker creative liberty; however, I do not think this cake was anything like what I described I wanted. It was a plain white cake with four tiers and no vintage or book theme to it at all. Based on what they had described to me, I was expecting to be blown away. The cake itself was delicious though. I just wish they had been more in contact with me to make sure that it was what I wanted. My favors were Air Force themed cookies that they personalized for my husband and I. They looked great, although I was not impressed by the taste.

Although the cake tasted great , it was a little tilted and it was not completely evenly layered. It was pretty but noticeably tilted and uneven. Also we had asked her to mix the two flavors that we had picked into each layer so that everyone could taste both flavors. She did not do that. The grooms cake was supposed to have bacon cream chesse filling but there was no/ very little bacon to be found. I was a little disappointed with the final outcome.

My husband and i choose The Icing for our wedding cake because during our consultation we thought Lynette was very professional and the cake flavors were wonderful! But then as time passed she was not very responsive as it was getting up to the couple weeks before the wedding...she is hard to get in touch with and not good at returning phone calls. Also we had requested a brown ribbon band on our cake to match our wedding colors which was not there the day of the wedding...but even without it the cake still looked beautiful...but we paid alot for our cake and when we showed up to the reception were surprised it was not exactly the way we had asked for it. But besides that it did taste great and was still beautiful.

I was really looking forward to that cake looking top notch and her adding it to her portfolio. I was really disappointed. Also we asked for certain colors in the cake and they did completely different colors than from what we asked for. Sorry Lynette, I really enjoyed meeting you but you really let me down when it came to my wedding day.

Lynette was not easy to work with. I will say her cakes are very good but as for her she is very rude and not easy to work with. I do not think the cake was worth what we paid for it. We dropped off a $100 cake topper that I purchased for her to put on our wedding cake and when I got to the reception somone elses cake topper was on our cake and looked nothing like ours. When I confronted her by email she was extreamly rude! If I called the store they would say she was there and she would call me back and I called 4 times and never got a call back. She did not seem to even care about the mistake she had made one bit. I would never recommend this place to anyone getting married. Your wedding cake should be exactly what you want and she does not seem to understand that. Customer Service should be important to her and clearly is not. She sent me the most rude emails I have ever seen! We now have pictures in our professional album of a cake that we hated and a cake topper that is not what we wanted at all. Very ugly!

The day of my wedding, my dad went to pickup the cupcakes we had paid for two weeks in advanced and they lost our order. I ordered four flavors and 13 dozen cupcakes. My dad went early enough in the morning and they were able to complete the order, but if he had not shown up we may have not had cupcakes. My advice is to always verify the vendor knows you placed an order maybe the day before to avoid unnecessary stress. The cupcakes did taste good but they also messed up on one of the flavors we ordered (we paid for snowcap and got chocolate).

I hired Lynn Drake of The Icing to do our wedding cake. We placed our security deposit last fall for a 3 tiered white fondant cake with alternating layers of quilted fondant with a navy blue ribbon and rows of pearls at the bottom of the tiers, and a silver oval monogram like the ones displayed beautifully on their website's gallery.

In January, we called Lynn and discussed changing our reception time due to a conflict with the ceremony venue. She stated moving it to 3 PM meant she would drop off our cake at 1 PM and it was no problem. So far, so good.

We called her in March after getting our final head count and changed our order to a 4 tiered cake. She said she would send me an updated invoice and it never came. There were apparently problems with her power being out during the winter storms that prevented us from getting a cake sketch via email, so I figured she'd send me the updated invoice when the balance was due. The day before the balance was due, she emailed me the old invoice and inquired about when I would pay. It took my husband and I at least 6 phone calls within 24 hours to reach her (as she never returned our messages), and finally we caught her on the phone and she agreed to send the updated invoice that we should have had back in March.

The day before the wedding, I called her to confirm that we were good to go for delivery at 1 PM. She had no idea what I was talking about. First she thought ours was a wedding on Sunday (4/18), and when I told her ours was Saturday (4/17), she then exclaimed, "Oh, the reception at 5 PM, right?" and I had to remind her that ours started at 3 PM and she agreed to deliver the cake at 1 PM. The overall impression was that she had forgotten about our cake. She hurried to get off the phone because she was running errands.

The day of the wedding, my mom had been advised by a staff member at our reception venue that Lynn arrived, set up the cake in a matter of minutes, and then rushed out in a hurry. Once we got to the reception we knew why. Our wedding cake that we paid over $700 for was completely unprofessionally done with cracked and dented fondant that she didn't even bother to fix, a crumbled corner that she very conveniently angled out of our view in the back (but a diligent bridesmaid caught it on camera for me), uneven rows of pearls, broken rows of the navy blue fondant ribbon, and a sloppy monogram that was also made out of broken pieces and was crooked and not even centered on the tier.

I emailed Lynn Drake on Monday, 4/19, to see if she would provide me with an explanation as to what happened. I also enclosed pictures of the cake so that she could see all of the problems with the cake that she delivered. Our wedding cake was, I'm sure, a last minute "creation" that she threw together (or let someone without any experience) make because she was unprofessional and could not keep up with her orders, clients, and moving her business to a new location - which was a constant excuse for her not returning calls or sending emails as promised. So far, she has not bothered to respond and I'm sure she is busy "running errands" and handling the relocation of her business, so I have linked to the pictures so that other brides can review exactly what The Icing delivered for our wedding cake.

I hired Lynn Drake of The Icing to do our wedding cake. We placed our security deposit last fall for a 3 tiered white fondant cake with alternating layers of quilted fondant with a navy blue ribbon and rows of pearls at the bottom of the tiers, and a silver oval monogram like the ones displayed beautifully on their website's gallery.

In January, we called Lynn and discussed changing our reception time due to a conflict with the ceremony venue. She stated moving it to 3 PM meant she would drop off our cake at 1 PM and it was no problem. So far, so good.

We called her in March after getting our final head count and changed our order to a 4 tiered cake. She said she would send me an updated invoice and it never came. There were apparently problems with her power being out during the winter storms that prevented us from getting a cake sketch via email, so I figured she'd send me the updated invoice when the balance was due. The day before the balance was due, she emailed me the old invoice and inquired about when I would pay. It took my husband and I at least 6 phone calls within 24 hours to reach her (as she never returned our messages), and finally we caught her on the phone and she agreed to send the updated invoice that we should have had back in March.

The day before the wedding, I called her to confirm that we were good to go for delivery at 1 PM. She had no idea what I was talking about. First she thought ours was a wedding on Sunday (4/18), and when I told her ours was Saturday (4/17), she then exclaimed, "Oh, the reception at 5 PM, right?" and I had to remind her that ours started at 3 PM and she agreed to deliver the cake at 1 PM. The overall impression was that she had forgotten about our cake. She hurried to get off the phone because she was running errands.

The day of the wedding, my mom had been advised by a staff member at our reception venue that Lynn arrived, set up the cake in a matter of minutes, and then rushed out in a hurry. Once we got to the reception we knew why. Our wedding cake that we paid over $700 for was completely unprofessionally done with cracked and dented fondant that she didn't even bother to fix, a crumbled corner that she very conveniently angled out of our view in the back (but a diligent bridesmaid caught it on camera for me), uneven rows of pearls, broken rows of the navy blue fondant ribbon, and a sloppy monogram that was also made out of broken pieces and was crooked and not even centered on the tier.

Delicious cakes and cupcakes...no doubt about that. But the customer service is deplorable. These people won't return calls or emails. They're easy enough to find when they're collecting your money, but good luck after that!
