I have mixed feelings about Viking. Let me start by saying my wedding cake turned out way better than i expected. Many guests told me it was very tasty and it ended up beautiful. But I was very nervous leading up to the wedding day. I made my appt for a tasting, and it took forever to get there. Wish it was closer because the only reason I chose this bakery was that my venue (in northeast Philly) used Viking as their baker and the cake was included in the venue price. The samples didn't taste very fresh & were a bit boring -Vanilla, chocolate, choc chip (which didn't have real chips) & red velvet. The red velvet tasted so stale. I asked them if we could do a filling. The woman there didn't seem like she knew answers to any of my questions. Every answer was "you'll have to ask the baker" or "ask the designer" neither of whom were there at the bakery, apparently the bakers come in very early in the morning and are gone by 12. I asked which options we had for fillings. She basically said "well what do you want?" Umm tell me what I can choose from. I asked for vanilla cake with raspberry filling and chocolate cake with peanut butter filling. She let us try mini cake things with raspberry inside and the raspberry was pretty yummy. She took a photo I had brought with me to give to the designer & told me it would be all buttercream. After meeting with the caterer, they said "they offered you chocolate? Chocolate is extra" they never mentioned that at the bakery. They also said the design would have to be fondant and it would be $200. Getting the deisgner to call me back took a few tries but when I finally spoke to her she was actually very sweet and assured me she could do the design in buttercream. Had to argue with them abt the peanut butter bc they claimed they do not do it for weddings bc of food allergies. I finally won by insisting I would post a sign with allergy warnings. In the End I was a happy bride! And the cake wasn't stale this time.

We loved Viking! I used them years and years ago for my bat-mitzvah cake and they did a great job. Their trademark is the chocolate pieces they add to their cakes. We got back in touch with them and had them do the cake for my shower and my groomscake. They did a great job on both! I sent them pictures of what we wanted, and they copied it perfectly. As far as the wedding cake, don't go by what is posted on their website. All of them look so old fashioned. We went with a 4 tier cake.. Every other layer, starting with circle, then square, circle and then square. On the circle layers, we had them add the chocolate pieces (Dark and white chocolate mixed) and on the square pieces they did really pretty designs. The cake itself tasted SOOO GOOD!!! It looked great and was definitely original.

Viking was great to work with as well. They are a little mom and pop shop right in Ardmore, PA. Family owned and operated. They were helpful and accommodating to our needs. I definitely recommend!!

The chocolate shavings both white and dark are exceptional. Viking made my daughter's wedding cake so unique. Alternating round and square layers. Alternating shavings and decoration. Their cake is very light. If you are looking for a more dense pound cake then they are not for you. If you prefer elegance . . . then Viking is it.

The cake was included in our price for the Hilton so they gave us 2 to choose from and we went with viking.
Their cake was amazing!!! Everyone is still talking about how good it was. The only complaint I have is that my husband and I didn't get any except the bite at the cake cutting!! We plan to get another one for our birthday though!

Viking has amazing cakes! We ordered the chocolate chip cake and everyone at the reception was raving about it. They provided us with different options to help save us money. We got a full sheet cake, which was served to our guests, and a small "show cake" which we ate along with our close family memebers.

Viking Pasteries was our preferred vendor for the place where we were having our wedding. The cake was including in the price so I didn't expect too much from it, but I was pleasantly surprised when we got the cake. It was decorated exactly how I wanted and tasted way better than I remembered it tasting at the cake tasting. I only met with the bakery once and emailed them my preferred design via email and the cake was beautiful and yummy! The cake was made fresh even though our wedding was on a holiday (July 4) when the bakery is closed.

I would highly recommend Viking Pasteries.

Our cake was beautifully decorated and so tasty. We went with chocolate and vanilla layers with buttercream icing. We gave Viking a picture of a cake we liked and they did a great job recreating it. It was exactly what we wanted. We got sooo many comments on how lovely our cake was and how great it tasted. It wasn't like your typical dry wedding cake. It was nice and moist! I would recommend Viking Pasteries to anyone for any event.

They make the most wonderful chocolate shavings cake that works on a single level and also looks grand stacked for the wedding.
