Please check out our new website www.tiotc.com

We have been in business for 25 years!!! We are the original Boston "Ace of Cakes" and "Cake Boss" When we started, there were no bakeries specializing in just cake. The Icing on the Cake was way ahead of it's time!!! Look at all the cake shows on T.V now.

We make amazing cakes that look great and taste even better.
We offer the personalized service you deserve.
We make wonderful buttercream and avoid using rolled fondant.....it's hard to cut and does not taste that great.

Come see what has made us best in Boston!!!! Read less

We loved Paula and Icing on the Cake! We had an option of 3 cake vendors for our wedding and after meeting Paula at our tasting, we knew we wanted her to make our cake. Paula was very interactive at our tasting, actually using our forks to mix different flavors of filling and cake to find us exactly what we wanted. Paula took the time to design our cake on paper while talking to us and when our wedding day finally came, the cake was absolutely beautiful. Icing on the Cake did an amazing job on the floral designs we had put on our cake and we got so many compliments on both the taste and look of it at our wedding. We plan to use Icing on the Cake for all of our future cake needs.

We cannot say enough great things about Icing on the Cake! Paula was very friendly right from the get-go of our tasting. She listened to what we wanted for a design, and it was more than we could have imagined! Her cakes were delicious as well; we had three different flavors, one for each tier. She had great advice on what size cake would work with our number of guests, and suggested ways to decrease our costs a bit, such as having a side cake (that no one saw) of another flavor or cake. We loved being able to offer our guests a choice of flavors! We felt like we were in great hands with Paula; she checked in with us leading up to the wedding to work our final details and even made a super cute frosting version of our dog to sit on one tier. She was incredibly professional throughout the process and we are SO glad we found her and her shop. As soon as we get our pictures, we will post a photo of our spectacular cake! We just don't want to have to wait a year to eat the rest on our first anniversary :-) Thank you so, so much!!!!!

So glad we went with Icing on the Cake. We did tastings at a few bakeries and we thought their cakes were by far the best tasting, and also most reasonably priced. Coincidentally my aunt used them for my shower so luckily I got to have extra of their cake! So easy and professional to work with, after booking didn't have to think of anything, they covered all of the details!

We only looked at two cake vendors that both came with high recommendations. The first place we looked at left me feeling "eih" about the thought of having a wedding cake. But when we went to Icing on the Cake for a tasting with Paula, I was so excited about the idea of having a cake - the range of cake flavors were delicious and the cake itself was moist, the buttercream frosting was awesome - much better than the too-sugary frosting at the other vendor. We decided to go with the three layers of filling, which was absolutely worth the modest upgrade. The design we chose was simple and we added fresh flowers to decorate the cake, though her more elaborate samples were beautiful as well. For our guests with gluten sensitivities, we had gluten-free cupcakes which I hear were also quite tasty and had beautiful flower icing designs on top. As a final note, we found out about TIOTC from my maid of honor, who got married two years ago and to this day still talks about how yummy her cake was, so that was an endorsement in itself!

Paula and her team created a cake for us that was as delicious as it was beautiful. We met with Paula for a consultation/tasting which was very easy to schedule and a lot of fun. Paula was so helpful throughout the meeting in giving us options that were included in the package that our hotel provided and was very clear with anything that was an additional charge. Paula also helped give us ideas to help design our cake based on different photos that we liked. Ultimately, we ended up finding a cake design online that we loved after our meeting with Paula, but we sent her the picture and she was able to replicate it perfectly! We got a number of compliments from our guests about how much they enjoyed the cake!

Look no further. The cakes are amazing. The frosting is amazing. I had so many people tell me how good the cake was at the wedding and that they don't usually eat the cake at weddings, but couldn't help themselves when it came to ours! Thank you TIOTC

I highly recommend Icing on the Cake for your upcoming wedding! When we worked with Paula she was very receptive to our ideas. When she sketched our wedding cake for us we were very impressed with how much she understood our vision. When we saw our wedding cake on our wedding day we were very happy with how it turned out, and everyone loved how it tasted!

When you’re planning a wedding, it is such a pleasure to work with someone, who is talented, professional and responsive!

We went on 3 tastings at different bakeries and chose The Icing on the Cake to use for our special day. This was the smallest and most personal of the tastings that we had. The cake itself was delicious and Paula was great to work with in helping to design our cake. We had our cake included at our package at the Hyatt, but we did a couple of upgrades (extra layers of cake and frosting - $30, and custom made topper of fondant 2 cute owls for $50). The cake looked at tasted great and they worked well with the hotel. We got a call to check on a decision related to the topper, which I appreciated. We ordered 3 different types of cake for our 3 tiers and they were all a hit! I would highly recommend using and supporting this small local business!
