We ordered cake for 175 people, and had 160 guests at our reception. There was not a single piece of cake left, and all the guests absolutely loved the combination of flavors! Wanda is so responsive and everyone commented on the unique shapes she created for our cake.

Wanda is simply AMAZING! We could not have been happier with our wedding cake and it was so delicious! Wanda is extremely professional and provides you with great value. She is great with helping you stay within your budget too. She is fun to work with and has so many ideas to share with you that we hadn’t even thought of. Wanda takes pride in making each of the cakes herself and it definitely shows. We are so glad there were a few extra pieces for us to take home after the wedding, its so yummy. :)

Wanda was the first and only baker that I went to. I found her on WeddingWire, and due to her glowing reviews & amazing cake pictures, I booked a tasting. I took entirely too many pictures of different cakes, but she somehow managed to know exactly what I wanted even though I didn't. She is warm, inviting, and extremely professional. We had a last minute change to one of the layers and she was more than willing to accomodate it. When I saw our cake the day of I was blown away, and it tasted just as good as it looked! We are looking forward to getting to eat our top tier on our anniversary.

Wanda's cake and cupcakes were fantastic! Several of our guests commented on how delicious they were, and personally I think it's some of the best cake I've ever had!

Wanda was a dream! Two weeks before the wedding I found myself unexpectedly without a cake baker. Wanda happily came to my rescue! She openened her home to us for a lovely cake tasting. She has been baking cakes for quite a while and had all kinds of great suggestions. She took my vague ideas for a cake and turned it into a masterpiece. I could not have been more happier with the way it turned out. The guests raved about how beautiful the cake was and how great it tasted. Her prices were very reasonable. I would highly recommend Wanda to any bride looking for a delicious, beautiful and affordably priced wedding cake!

We had the perfect cake and Wanda was so easy to work with. We didn't want to spend a fortune on how the cake looked but wanted it to look nice and taste great. She has many flavors to choose from but for us we chose the almond cake with almond filling and it turned out great - many guests thought it was very unique and they loved it.

The cake was beautiful and tasted delicious. We had a picture from a magazine that we liked and Wanda copied it with some flare of our own personal style. Her pricing was very straight forward. We had two flavors of cake with a filling, and we still came in under our budget. Our guests really enjoyed the cake, too. We will use Wanda for all our future cake needs.

Wanda made our wedding cake and our groom's cake. The wedding cake was exactly what I asked for and it was DELICIOUS!! We did not stay at the reception long enough to eat the groom's cake but I got a Yankees cake to surprise my baseball fanatic husband--she had not done a Yankees specific cake before--it looked so neat!! And the hubs absolutely loved it. All of the guests said it was amazing. Thoroughly impressed.

The only reason I'm giving 4.5 on quality of service is because we had discussed "pearls" made of icing on top of the ribbon on our wedding cake, but that wasn't done. I didn't mention it the day I picked up the cakes because it was too late and I didn't want to stress. Wanda did a heck of a job making our cake, it was very simple but just absolutely delicious (even the fondant). My grooms cake was exactly what I requested. A doll to work with!

Wanda was amazing and very professional. She definitely understood our needs regarding a military clause. Her prices were reasonable and worth every dime. She accommodated our schedule to make picking up the cake easier then ever (night before the wedding). Our guests raved about the cake- almond cake with raspberry filling. The cake design was also very eye catching and beautiful all the way down to the last detail. You wont be disappointed. I would definitely recommended her to any bride!

Meeting Wanda for the first time was a wonderul experience, I had an unusual idea for my cake and she delivered excatly what I wanted.

Communicating with Wanda is hassle free. She gets back to answer any questions ASAP, I didn't have any time or reason to sweat about my cake.

It was delicious, cake, filing and fondant everything was perfect. Enough for everyone, my guests loved it. Delivered on time with a box for the top tier.

Thank you Wanda and you can bet you'll be baking for us many many more different cakes.

Wanda did a perfect job on my wedding cake last weekend, June 25, 2011. Sometimes when I go to wedding I am disappointed in cakes so when choosing a vendor for my own cake I was rather picky. Wanda did an excellend job and my cake was beautiful. A 3 layer white cake with white icing with columns between the 2nd and top tier. We did the inital consultation/tasting at her home. She had many models to look at and flavors to taste. Highly recommend Wanda!!!

Wanda was very nice and easy to work with. Our cake was beautiful and very delicious. We had chocolate cake with raspberry filling for the first layer and spice cake with a sweet cream filling. The cake was fondant covered and it was delicious. A lot of fondant is thick and chewy but not Wanda's!! Everyone loved the cake and we thank you for working with us!

Wanda is sweet and easy to work with. She really knows what she's doing and her book shows it! After checking out other bakeries her price really couldn't be beat and she's even willing to throw in some extras for free! The day of the wedding she was punctual and set everything up, even taking the intiative to think of a different placement for the cake to make photography easier. We ordered a very specific groom's cake in addition to our wedding cake that we asked her to make into an Xbox 360. It turned out PERFECT and stole a lot of attention at the reception! It was also "the most delicious cake ever" according to my brother.

My cake was beautiful and just what I wanted! Everyone said it was delicious - and many said among the best wedding cake they've ever had. For me the important thing was design, and Wanda helped me talk through and create just what I wanted. She suggested some elements and I suggested some personal elements and it came together wonderfully. Wanda is great to work with and the result shows her dedication to making each bride's cake look flawless and feel special. Thanks Wanda!

Wanda's cakes are not only delicious and beautiful, but you can't beat her price either!! I gave Wanda a complete sketch of what I wanted for my wedding cake and she nailed it! It was perfect - in look and taste!!

She runs the business out of her home, and really aims to please you. She doesn't like to nickel and dime people, she is honest about your ideas on what can/can't be done, and she is well liked and known throughout the community and with a lot of local wedding vendors. She is friendly, professional, and I really enjoyed working with her.

My family and I would recommend her to ANYONE for any type of cake, as we've used her for many years and every cake has come out top notch!

We went to Wanda's to select the cake and discuss what colours the ribbons should be (and other such details) .. etc. You get to order your own cake topper if you wish (we ordered it from amazon and delivered it to her house)

She had a wide selection of cakes in the photobook and also a lot of flavours to choose from. The layers of the cake can be different, which is nice.

The cake was delivered on time and the ribbons matched the tablecloth colours- the bride was happy. It wasn't too sweet, which is good.

The cake was pretty high quality, we loved it.

Delicious cake! We had fun at the tasting and ultimately chose almond flavor with raspberry filling. Lots of guests commented on how good it tasted. When I told the reception venue that Wanda was doing the cake, I was told I had NOTHING to worry about. They were very familiar with her and her work. We didn't interview any other cake vendors--after we signed the contract, I had an opportunity to taste a Salamander Bakery (Middleburg, VA) cake. It was also delicious, but I have no idea of what the cost might be. Still happy we chose Wanda!

I love Wanda! My family went right to her home for a tasting and loved each cake flavor and really enjoyed looking through pictures of her cakes. Wanda was so easy to talk to and a joy to work with. The cake was GEORGOUS, classy, and delicious!! We ordered a larger cake than needed for the look and ate every bite of the leftovers! Our cake was half yellow, half chocolate, with a fabulous almond filling – I have never had a wedding cake so yummy!

Wanda made the cake for my sister's wedding, so I knew I would go to her for mine. Her cakes are delicious, and they look amazing!! Everyone ate a slice, and people went for seconds - even though there was a candy buffet haha. I gave her blue ribbon to decorate it. My only complaint is that the polka dots were supposed to match the ribbon, and instead they were right. It didn't really matter though, it still looked great!

Wanda of Wanda's Cakes did an absolutely amazing job on our cake! It was superb and definitely a hit at our wedding. I designed it using a combination of what I had seen along with our own twist and she executed it absolutely perfect. Her cake was moist and definitely flavorful. I do think that the majority of the guests including ourselves enjoyed the chocolate cake with raspberry filling over the yellow cake with almond filling though. Wanda was very easy to work with and very competitively priced and at times a steal when compared to places like Amphora's Bakery who's cakes were okay but not spectacular by any means and not worth their price. To be honest we felt that the raspberry filling on Wanda's cakes was better and we didn't have to deal with a nose in the air type of attitude like we experienced at Amphora's. Let me say that if you want a great cake no matter the occasion you should definitely give Wanda a call. You won't be disappointed I know we weren't!

She is totally awesome! Her cake was absolutely delicious! Not to mention how beautiful it was she is truly and artist when it come to wedding cakes. My guest at my wedding said that the cake looked like it belonged in a magazine. She works out of her home, she is professional and extremely friendly, she does cake tasting. She is the first person that I tried and I went with her without a second thought. My cakes was a little pricey but I cannot compain, it was definitely worth every penny I spent. If I had to do it over again she definitely would be my number 1 Pick!

My wedding cake is STILL talked about to this day!
Wanda is not only extremely talented, she was a dream to work with too! She had great ideas and wonderful pictures to look at. I had NO clue what I wanted my cake to look like when I went in for my consultation. I came out with a perfect idea of my cake and much excitment to actually see and eat it!
When I saw my cake at our reception, it was everything I wanted and more. I wanted a Rum cake and it tasted fantastic! Everyone wanted to take a piece home. She is extremely affordable, especially if you want the perfect cake.
I strongly recommend her to any bride looking for the perfect wedding cake.

Wanda Cakes:
This was a referrel from a friend. Wanda bakes the cakes out of her home. They are delicious. They have this nice sugar glaze on the exterior of the cake itself - before the actual buttercream icing is applied. The cake itself was delicious and we could not ask for more, however, our tiered wedding cake (4-tieres) was the leaning tower of pisa. It was not cool. No matter how great the cake taste - if we are going to showcase a 4-tiered cake...it should NOT be leaning. It was obvious in ALL of our wedding photos that our otherwise very simple and beautiful cake....was in fact LEANING!!!! If I had to do it over again, no matter how good the cake tasted, or how nice the person was that made our cake, or how reasonable the pricing was...I would not have gone with any vendor if I knew the cake would be leaning.

However, to be fair, my friend did not have pillars in between her cake made by this vendor and it was NOT leaning. But I was not impressed to receive a call from Wanda the week of my wedding to tell me that she was going to a friend of her's wedding and she wanted to know if she could deliver the cake a little early. I did not think it was a big deal whether she delivers the cake at 1, 2, or 3:00PM as opposed to say 4 or 5:00PM - but my wedding coordinator at the hotel did mention that it was probably not a good idea to have a wedding cake sit out in room temperature for a few hours waiting for the guests/event to begin. So lessons learned....hire a "professional" that's going to make ur event be priority and hire someone that seeks perfection on something that needs perfection...such as a wedding cake. Trust me I didn't think it was that big of a deal prior to the wedding...but EVERYONE looks at the cake - especially if ur going to take pictures with it...and display it.

Conclusion: Leaning Tower of Pisa = Not Cute!
