The Icing on the Cake, 230 Adams Street, Newton, MA 617-969-1830

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

Icing on the cake was recommended to us by my mother who had gotten her wedding cake form them years ago . I was apprehensive at first because we have very different tastes. Upon going in to the shop for a cake tasting my husband and i fell in love with lemon velvet with strawberry mousse cake. afetr trying that cake we had made up our minds that this would be our cake . Every part of the process was very easy from payment to delivery were great . after the wedding we got our cake top ( to freeze) and it was crushed the catering company ( Boston events and catering ) who told us that icing on the cake had given them a box too small to put the top of the cake in and they tried to put it in and that is why it was crushed. Yet we could not have been happier with the icing on the cake.

The Icing on the Cake cake itself was what won us over the other vendors. Moist yet not too sweet and oh so good. We had a good amount of guests that were not from the city and everyone wanted to know where to get the cake. The design was exactly as discussed with Paula during consultations. We even went back to retry the flavors to make sure everything would be exactly what we wanted and Paula was more than willing to help us again even though we ended up back at our original choices... classic bridezilla moment! I also liked that they offer late night tasting consultations since I don't work or live near Newton. Thank you Icing on the Cake for an amazing cake for my amazing wedding!

The Icing on the Cake was fantastic to work with! We had the choice of 3 bakeries with our package, and came here last. Clearly, we saved the best for last. Paula and I had a blast chatting about what my vision was, and even sent me home with samples for my then-fiance to taste since he was unable to attend the tasting due to work. She very clearly laid out the vision, and worked with my florist to get live flowers on top of the cake. The flavors were phenomenal, and so many people raved about the cake to us. I would highly recommend them for any bride looking for an easy, stress-free cake experience!

The cake came with the venue we booked. We had a tasting and it was great to be able to choose different flavors for the different layers of the cake. We really liked everything about the cake, except the only thing was that they didn't really get one of the colors right for the cake. It was minor and the cake still looked beautiful and tasted great.

I had a cupcake tower vs cake and it was nice. I wasn't happy with the custom writing on the cupcakes. I wish I was able to see a preview so I can put more input.

If you want wedding cake that is so delicious that pieces fly off the tray and completely disappear, this place has it. My husband and I got married on 10/24 at the beautiful Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge. We met with Paula to have a cake tasting about a month before. We both had had long days and were kind of cranky going in. The moment we met Paula we were both instantly cured of the bad mood. She is so good at her job and loves what she does so much that you can feel that energy instantly. We tried several types of cake and had a hard time deciding which flavor to pick. So we picked five of our favorites and served our guests beautiful fall cupcakes! Paula and her team did an amazing job of giving each flavor of cupcake its own decorated theme, like acorns and leaves for chocolate hazelnut. The presentation alone was stunning. But these cupcakes not only looked gorgeous, they tasted amazing!!! So flavorful and delicious. I thought we might have a couple of leftovers at the end of the night but NOPE! Paula explained that they don't use food coloring but instead use natural methods to give color to the cakes. You can taste the high quality and people were raving about them. I highly recommend The Icing on the Cake because every wedding couple deserves to have a beautiful cake that tastes great too!

Paula was so sweet and her cake was amazing! Icing on the cake was included in our venue package as our wedding cake baker and after tasting her cakes we didn't even bother looking elsewhere. Cake was moist, tons of flavors to choose from, and we even get a free anniversary cake next year!

We got a barely naked cake and our florist created a beautiful design to compliment it. Everything was awesome!

Our only comment is sometimes she was a little hard to get a hold of. But she's the owner of the bakery and it was prime wedding season so we weren't too surprised that she was busy! Overall, highly recommend.

My family has gotten cakes from TIOTC before, so I knew that's where I would go for my wedding cake, and they exceeded my expectations. My husband's and my tasting and initial meeting with Paula was great and she completely understood our vision and offered suggestions to make the cake even more beautiful while keeping the cost down. The cake also tasted amazing and we got many compliments from guests about how beautiful and delicious the cake was. We also got a birthday cake from TIOTC for my husband's father to have at our rehearsal dinner, and the cake was equally as delicious and beautiful!

Paula and Icing on the Cake are truly amazing. I am always appreciative of detailed work, attentive staff, and accurately represented products -- all of which Icing on the Cake delivers on. Of all the wedding cakes we tried, IOTC was truly most delicious! We were able to choose two different flavors for our cake, which our guests loved. Everyone was a huge fan. The cake looked gorgeous. Everything was perfect! Highly recommend this small business that values customer service and satisfaction. We cannot wait to have our anniversary cake!
