INFO FOR WEDDING CAKE

Besides cakes, what other types of desserts do you provide?
Dessert Buffet, Groom's Cake
What additional services do you provide?
Consultations, On-site Delivery, On-site Setup, Pickup, Tastings
Do you provide customary cakes, such as Croquembouche?
Yes
Are you licensed by the state health department?
Yes
Do you offer private tastings or open house tastings?
Yes, tastings are done by appointment only. Please call for availability.
What are your tasting hours?
Tasting times are subject to availability.
Describe how you price, such as by slice or by tier, for your cakes?
Wedding cakes are priced per slice. Sugar flowers and other ornate details are typically priced separately and based on complexity of design.
Does the price include the top tier of the cake?
The top tier is included in the price. Because our cakes are best enjoyed when fresh, we offer you the choice of saving the top tier of your cake OR ordering a fresh complimentary "top tier" for you and your new spouse to enjoy on your first anniversary.
Do you offer custom cakes, or do you work with pre-designed styles?
All of our cakes are entirely custom - design, flavors, fillings, etc. I like to work with couples to provide them with a truly unique and special experience.
What (if any) special ingredients, such as fresh fruits or farm-fresh butter, do you use in your cakes?
All cakes are made from scratch using only the freshest, all natural ingredients.
On average, how far in advance of the event do you prepare the cake?
Our cakes are always fresh and NEVER frozen. Your cake is baked as close to your wedding as possible to keep it fresh, moist and delicious for you and your guests.
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
This can vary depending on the time of year. We keep our cake bookings limited in order to provide each couple with the best experience possible.
Will you work with the client's florist to garnish the cake?
I highly recommend using all edible materials on cakes. Flowers are grown with harmful pesticides. Sugar flowers are edible, always in season and never wilt!
Do you offer delivery? If yes, how much is your average delivery fee?
Yes, we deliver.

Erin was simply fantastic to work with. From scheduling our cake tasting, choosing a design and enjoying the cake on our wedding day everything was a very positive experience! Our cake was stunningly beautiful, Erin's sugar flower was truly a work of art (we are keeping it), her fondant actually tastes good. But most importantly of all, our guests went back for 2nd pieces and 3rd pieces of cake! No higher recommendation there!

From the day I first contacted Erin to schedule our cake-tasting, she was sweet and professional. When my fiancee and I had a difficult time narrowing down which flavors of cake and buttercream we wanted to sample (we got to choose six of each,) Erin helped us out by making some suggestions. We ultimately chose tropical carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and almond cake with chocolate hazelnut buttercream, and our wedding guests commented on how delicious it tasted.

As for the design - gorgeous, elegant, exactly what I wanted. At the initial appointment, I showed Erin a few photos of wedding cake designs that I liked, and she used those ideas to create a design that was uniquely ours and within our budget. I cringed when I had to cut it at the reception, but fortunately my photographer got plenty of pictures of it and all of Erin's amazing scrollwork and sugar flowers.

Throughout the planning process, Erin was beyond helpful and quick to respond to all of my emails. I cannot wait for our couple's cake on our first anniversary! Erin is a true artist, and I absolutely recommend her and Wild Orchid Baking Company.

We did not want a traditional wedding cake (even though Erin's are beautiful), we wanted something totally different. When I went to the cake tasting I presented an idea I had to surprise my husband with, and it came out SO perfect. We travel around the world going to soccer games. Our team is Liverpool and we were lucky enough to visit Anfield this past January. I showed Erin our pictures and she built us Anfield out of cake and frosting. My husband was so surprised and taken back, he requested that all 3 of our photographers get every single angle they could. It was the best cake ever! Plus the chocolate cake and maple frosting, mmmm yum!

Wild Orchids made our Wedding Cake, and it was delicious! We couldn't decide which flavors we wanted, and we where able to choose two different cake flavors and two different frostings with out a problem. The cake was beautiful. The only squab I had was, once u got up close and went to cut the cake, there where a few cracks in the fondant that where visible. Definitely a bummer. But everything else was great! Wild orchids has lots of cake flavors and frostings to choose from and they are all very tasty! They did a great job, designing the cake also.

Erin flawlessly replicated the lace from my very elaborate wedding gown into the pattern of the cake for a beautiful elegant wedding cake. She even made little surrounding mini gluten free red velvet cakes, because my Mom and some guests needed to eat gluten free (which I understand were delicious). Our cake was SUPERB! We had the black velvet cake, so rich and moist, with Blackberry cabernet and salted caramel buttercreams. SO DELICIOUS!

If you like desserts that LOOK beautiful and TASTE great, Wild Orchid Baking Company is the place to go!
We were so happy to have Erin and Wild Orchid Baking company create 300 delicious cupcakes and a 8" cake for our July 20, 2013 wedding. Working with Erin was a wonderful experience! In addition to being talented, she also was very kind and easy to work with. Throughout the process of selecting desserts, Erin was a wealth of knowledge. Any questions, comments she was always available. She provided us with a tasting kit of various frosting flavors and cake bases. It can be a little overwhelming since all of them taste so great! We ended up creating 4 different cupcake combinations, and all of our guests seemed to be happy with the choices - as we didn't have many left at the end of the night! We decided to go a more simple route for our small cake, but from the designs I have seen in her shop, her creativity has no end!

Thank you again, Erin and Wild Baking Company for providing us with the best dessert at our wedding!

Wow, do they make delicious cakes! Erin at the Wild Orchid is so talented, she does beatiful cakes and offers so many interesting and unique flavors in both the cakes and butter creams. We didn't know exactly how we wanted our cake to look like but after talking to Erin about our colors, flowers and venue she just sketched a picture in front of us and we loved it right away. Eventhough we didn't have a huge cake she didn't mind at all doing half the cake in one flavor combo and the other half in another. She was very flexible, listned to everything we said and was very responsive to our emails or phone calls. We got so many comments on how unique and flavorful our cake was. We loved it!

Best wedding cake EVER! We had a tasting at WOBC and Jacques and decided immediately on WOBC before even getting to the other tasting. Erin's cakes are moist, flavorful, and provided a lot of different combinations of flavors with all the different butter creams. The fondant is light and marshmallowy and was very tasty. We chose bourbon pecan with Bailey's butter cream and also toffee with caramel butter cream.

While meeting with Erin, she helped me merge several designs of cakes that I liked to come up with our own design. Her work with sugar flowers is amazing and she truly is an artist. It came out beautiful! My wedding cake was my favorite thing at our wedding, and I can't wait for our anniversary cake!

Erin was wonderful to work with and very professional. We did a small couple's cake for cutting and then did cupcakes for the guests. Every single one of our guests who I talked to said, "Those were the best cupcakes I have ever had in my life!!" I completely agree! Our cake was chocolate Guinness cake with peanut butter frosting! And another favorite was the toffee cake with salted caramel frosting. Thanks Erin for making our wedding cake and cupcakes the best ever!! I would highly recommend Erin and Wild Orchid Baking Co.

We ALMOST went with Jacques. SO SO SO GLAD WE DID NOT. We heard that Erin's cakes looked amazing and tasted great from our wedding planner.... well great is an understatement. I always hated going to weddings and watch massive amounts of cake get tossed out at the end of the evening because the cake was dry and way too sugary. Well we went short cake amount, for 125 guests we got enough cake for 90 and it was all gone! People could not stop talking about how amazing it was and we even had fondant. And she even makes you a fresh cake for your 1 year anniversary so you do not have to freeze the top. Yuck. :)

Let's just say that it was so good we have the wedding planner pack up 4 slices just for the groom and I to eat in our hotel the next morning! Yum Yum!

My only things I wish was a little better was the sugar flowers on our cake. From what was drawn out for our cake design and what we actually had looked very different. Maybe it was lack of communication.

Either way thanks Erin, I loved our cake and to me taste is the MOST important. Presentation is important and having a pretty cake is nice but if it taste bad no one will remember it.

Not only do I find it fun that the owner completed (and won!) on a food network show which is my favorite channel to watch on TV but she was great to work with. I did cupcakes and tried a lot of different cupcake places before I found this one. Her "taste testing box" was great and we had a lot of fun that night trying different cupcake flavers and mixing them up with the different frostings till we found the perfect flavor combos for us. Not only that but - and this was what we found difficult to find at most places- the cupcakes themselves were awesome! it seems to be the frosting is what everyone focuses on and the cupcakes themselves are disappointing. Not so with these! I got tons of compliments on how good they were at the wedding and there were none left at the end of the night. I even had a couple of people say they had hoped to go back for seconds but didn't get there in time! On top of all this i wanted each cupcake to have a VW bug on it - no problem! for an affordable price I had 4 different colored 3d "punch buggies" (i had 4 flavors so I matched colors up with flavos so people could chose which one they wanted) and a fantastic "topper" of a white VW with a bride and groom in it and everything was edible.
I've aready recommened her to a few other people looking for a good specialty cake place and can't wait for an excuse to use her again myself!

I was getting ready in the reception space during the day of the wedding and was thrilled when she delivered the cake! It was everything we wanted it to be! Beyond the design, it tasted delicious too! Several of my guests have asked where we got it so they can order one for their next big party or event!

Erin was an absolute pleasure to work with during the whole wedding planning process. We loved the at home cupcake tasting kit (my fiance could not sit still in his seat he was so excited about the cupcakes)! The meeting to discuss cake design and cupcake set up was great, Erin has such a great vision for her creations! The end product was perfection! Everyone was (and still is) raving about how delicious the cupcakes were. We will definitely be using Wild Orchid Baking Company for future events!

All I can say is WOW. The wedding cake was rediculously amazing. I mean seriously GOOD. We chose the pumpkin cake with a cinnamon frosting to make it a pumpkin spice. (fall wedding) Erin had us over her shop for a cake tasting and made us tea and all sorts of goodies. Erin is a fantastic person and did a wonderful job with decorating the cake and like I said - IT WAS AWESOME!
Thanks SOOOOO much Erin!

The cupcake tower and cake at our wedding were very yummy and guests enjoyed them. We had a lot of fun at our tasting with Erin and loved her ideas and the flavors. The color of the cake details wasn't exactly what we imagined but it's frosting and probably wouldn't ever be exactly what we imagined :) The only other change I would make if I could do it again, would be to get our own cupcake stand--we opted to rent the basic white stand from Wild Orchid to save time, but I wish we could have found something with more personality.

Wild Orchid Baking Co. did an awesome job creating our wedding cake. We actually planned everything out of state so it was hard to arrange a time to meet and discuss the plans. However, the staff at Wild Orchid allowed and created a sample box for my mother-in-law to try since she lives up north. I thought that was very kind of them to do that and so we got feedback from her on which was the best selection. They were very nice to work with and did a great job creating what I was looking for in a wedding cake. I thought the cake was very well decorated and tasted excellent. I would definitely recommend them to anyone for an event. Audrey Needham

I take cake very, very seriously. The tier of white cake and tower of cupcakes that Erin made for our wedding has completely blown the curve on deliciousness. At least once a month, I find myself craving cupcakes, and I remember that her bakery is open by appointment only, and then I experience actual, profound sorrow. Because no other cupcake I've had anywhere else, in my entire life, is as good as hers. Our sample tasting was a religious experience for me. CONGRATULATIONS, ERIN. YOU HAVE RUINED ME FOR ALL OTHER CAKES, FOREVER. Also, we're sorry it took so long to get the cupcake tree back to you. MIL was supposed to bring it back the next day, so if you made a voodoo doll or something, that's who to aim it at.

Erin makes absolutely beautiful and delicious cakes. She is creative and offers a great service. I had interviewed and tasted quite a few cakes from different bakeries and instantly knew she was the one to make our cake. We had 3 different flavors for our cake and each one tasted amazing. We did have one communication issue with our cake but Erin quickly resolved the problem and offered us a credit. Even with this issue I would highly highly recommend Wild Orchid Baking to anyone looking for a cake vendor.

Erin and her staff at Wild Orchid Baking Company are great. Not only was the cake beautiful, but it also tasted fantastic! Another plus is that the cake was very reasonably priced compared to other area bakeries...trust me, I did my research! I am not a big fan of dessert, and our cake was fresh, moist and not too sweet...absolutely perfect! I was one of the brides that kept changing my mind about the cake design...and Erin was fabulous! She always responded thoroughly to my e-mails and not only handled my changes but also offered fabulous suggestions. On the wedding day, the cake was on time, in perfect shape and even better than we ever could have imagined. My only complaint is that there weren't any leftovers because our guests asked for seconds! They offer a free 6 inch cake on your anniversary which is great...we can't wait to enjoy that! We highly recommend Wild Orchid Baking Company to any brides and grooms out there...they were absolutely perfect!

We chose wild orchid for Erin's ability and willingness to make vegan cake. As an added bonus, her vegan cake is also gluten-free. I was also impressed with her cake design, so my fiance (now husband!) and I went for a tasting.

Erin has a great shop/bakery in North Hampton, NH. It was cute, clean and smelled delicious (we had done another tasting for a popular vegan cake baker in her partially finished basement, and the upstairs of the house was SO DIRTY). Erin herself was very accommodating, friendly and easy to work with. We got to try five different cake flavors with five different frostings (you could mix and match the cakes and frostings to see which ones tasted best together).

As the wedding approached, Erin actually contacted me to finalize details rather than the other way around. She was happy to use real ribbon that I picked out and provided around the base of each layer (I thought it looked nicer than fondant ribbon), and she coordinated with the florist to make sure she'd have the flowers she needed to decorate with. I was so happy to see the final result at the wedding, and it tasted amazing, too!

I can't wait to get our anniversary cake next summer!

I ordered my husband's grooms cake from Wild Orchid, which I gave him at the rehearsal dinner. I asked for a Husky dog (the mascot of his college) and was SO impressed with what I got. The dog was huge, looked perfect, and was the star of our rehearsal dinner. The cake tasted great and was such a hit. The price was very reasonable and I enjoyed speaking with the woman I worked with there. I highly recommend Wild Orchid for any type of fun, inventive cake! I ahve seen thier wedding cakes as well, which also look beautiful!

Erin did an amazing job on our cake. It was absolutely gorgeous and she gave us exactly the design we asked for and worked really well with what the florist gave her for a perfect natural flowers design! That is just half of it- the cake was delicious. Thinking about it is making my mouth water. I had at least 4 peices. I also love that we have a whole new fresh cake (smaller of course) to look forward to on our anniversary!

Our cake was great.
We ended up getting two flavors for the two tiers.
I ended up liking the blueberry cake and lemon frosting better...so if that's where your tastes lean, I highly recommend that combo.
The cake was moist and delicious.
Our little sugar flowers were beautiful.
She also gave us the good advice to go with fondant - we got married in late August so I was hoping we would have a mild night - well it was hot, and thank goodness we got the fondant otherwise we would have not had any frosting on the cake when we cut it! And the fondant was not bad (it's like concentrated frosting, but not hard or chewy or anything like the bad fondant I have had in the past).
Free delivery for us (we were in her delivery area).
I am hoping to go to her new bakery in Portsmouth.
We did get a small cake (to feed 20, we had individual home made cakes on all the other tables) so I can't speak to the quality of a huge cake, but ours was great!

Erin designed a cake for us that was better than what I had been hoping for during our phone conversation about our wedding theme, budget and colors. I fell in love with the design when she described it, loved the sketch she sent to make it feel real, and it brought tears to both my husband and I's eyes when we finally saw it for the first time after we walked into our receptionn. Besides how it looked, it was delicious. Our guests commented all weekend about how good it was, and some even said that it was great and they don't normally like wedding cake! Erin is extremely talented. I would highly recommend her to any bride and groom looking for a great cake that will reflect their style, personality and wedding. I planned from many states away and that was never a problem for Erin.

You must consider working with Erin. My wedding was one week ago, on August 16, 2008 and I wanted to recommend her as soon as I could.

I learned about Wild Orchid through one of my coworkers- her wedding cake was beautiful and delicious and I thought an excellent value for the service, size and decoration. When I contacted Erin, I really didn't have one set idea for what I wanted our cake to look like. She came up with several ideas and we ended up going with a navy blue cake with silver accents. She provided us with a sketch of her vision for the cake, which was great. Although the design changed a couple times as the date got closer, Erin was exceptionally open to new ideas and very easy to get a hold of. She provided us with a sample cake top which was very helpful and completely delicious. We could have chosen nearly any flavor and ended up going with a chocolate chip cake with almond icing after talking through the possibilities with Erin. On our wedding day, the cake was even more beautiful than I thought it would be and we received many compliments, even coming from some of my more conservative "white cake favoring" family members. The flower details and silver accents were exceptional. (I will try to attach a photo.) We received the best compliments after the fact, however, with my mother-in-law (among others) telling me it was the best wedding cake she had ever had, and with my mother asking for a second slice. I truly enjoyed it as well.

I recommend Wild Orchid with enthusiasm and without reservation. Hire Erin if you can! If you have questions about my experience, please feel free to contact me at KaitF@aol.com.

Best Wishes,
Kait

Erin was fantastic to work with! I have recommended her to everyone I come across that is getting hitched. She has an amazing artistic talent, and a real focus on quality ingredients. The end result is a beautiful cake that tastes delicious! She was very accommodating with us - we requested that she mirror the flavors of a blueberry-peach struesel bar that I grew up on, and she did a fantastic job. Two months later, we are still getting compliments on the cake. If you are looking for a beautiful, great tasting cake, and a reliable, organized vendor, I highly recommend Wild Orchid Baking Company!
