Lina Hunter, the owner, was great to work with. We had a photo we wanted her to recreate, and it turned out BEAUTIFULLY. The cake was, unfortunately, a bit smaller than I had hoped, but that is just because we had a limited budget - I am sure they can create a larger, even more beautiful cake if you are willing to spend more. However, they were able to work with our small budget and the cake looks beautiful in photos (and tasted great too!) She also gave us red velvet cupcakes during our initial tasting, and they literally were the best I have ever had in my life. Thanks Lina!
Cake was gorgeous!! Lina (the owner) is a pleasure to work with and makes it known that she cares about your wedding. Lina made us a four tier round cake and it exceeded my expectations. Everyone commented about how beautiful it was. It not only looked beautiful but it tasted so good!! Its so nice when guests at your wedding come up to you and tell you that you picked amazing people to help you with your big day.
This was the best tasting wedding cake I have ever had! It was moist and pure deliciousness. The service was fantastic. She had several check-ins with me to make sure that the cake was exactly what we wanted....and it was! It was better and more beautiful that I could have even imagined!
WE LOVE THIS WOMAN!
Lina has provided 4 wedding cakes for my family in the past 6 months. Each one has been more delicious than the last. I am still getting phone calls from friends telling us how great our cake was. In November she provided us a very whimsical cake for a small intimate wedding. It was pristine and very yummy dark chocolate with vanilla buttercream.
In December she wow'd us again with a three tiered white cake beauty. Her sugar roses were absolutely stunning. Not only were they beautiful but everything was 100% edible.
In May she provided us with a three tiered white cake with raspberry filling and sugar star gazer lillies. She worked closely with us on the colors of the lillies to match the groom's cake. The groom's cake was a fabulous soccer jersey and the draping of the fondant looked just like real fabric. The groom was pleasantly surprised!
Her prices are incredibly reasonable. She worked with us in our budget to make sure that we had plenty of cake to go around(and left overs!) and still give us a masterpiece. Her work was consistent and breathtaking. We were very pleased that she managed to give us such consistent results because our guest lists overlapped at all three occassions.
Several of my girlfriends are recently engaged and clamoring to get Lina's number for cakes of their own. She was even sweet enough to get me a last minute engagement party cake for this weekend!
I will be contacting Lina for any and all special occassions in the future. Her friendly demeanor, professionalism, prompt responses and incredible product have put her at the top of my list! I'm looking forward to our cake this weekend already!
Thank you so much for the beautiful wedding cake. It was stunning and unforgettable. You were a joy to work with and the end result was just as delicious as it was beautiful.

Dear Vaishali Singh,
The cake material is called fondant. I am sorry if you misunderstood. We tried to accomodate as much as we could for all your demands. We treated you respectfully and kindly, we delivered what you asked for on time all this added to a discount you demanded, and you still where not happy.

A beautiful cupcake tree topped by a white fondant covered cake. They were all decorated with beautiful gum paste posies. The frosting was so good - and everyone told us so. The cake was French vanilla. The cupcakes were huge hit. I ordered a grooms cake as a surprise -- it was a 3-D version of a Red Sox hat...chocolate ganache. Unbelievable and tasty. Lina Hunter, owner & baker, does extraordinary work, with great prices and the best taste. She did my shower cake too-- a three tiered whimsical pink and green dream! My MOH ordered it without me knowing. What a great surprise! Lina is starting to be really recognized so I think we caught her on the upswing of her success hence her prices were great. Check out her website for a glimpse but when you meet her, you'll be sold.

Thank You!!! It was a pleasure for me to make your cake!! I hope to see you again soon for all your future celebrations!!
Lina Hunter said she could create a cake for me from the multiple pictures I sent to her. The cake looked nothing like what we had planned and discussed. It was the only thing that went wrong on my wedding day. When expressing my dissatisfaction to her, she told me that I had to return the cake to her by 9am following my wedding day and she would refund 1/2 my money...give me a break??? I got the cake back to her and she told me I had trashed the cake and she would not refund me. We did not even eat the cake and it was not trashed...I have pictures. She is a rude, inconsiderate lady with no regard for customer satisfaction. Terrible business.

This person is crazy and harmfull and has threatened in all ways. Beware all vendors (She only wants to get her money back) and is writing everywhere... I refused to give her her money back, because we delivered what she asked for... I made her a purple 1969 plymouth car, (is which herself mentioned to de very ugly) refused to come in for an appointment... I am in shock. And in Gods hands, and hope there is a cure for crazy harmful people.
Lina Hunter delivered an exceptional cake that was exactly what we wanted. She was easy to work with in developing a concept and provided a product and service of the highest value. We would definitely recommend.
They did our Groom's Cake. The design was exactly what I wanted but came out even better than expected. The actual flavor of the cake was average.
Lina Hunter created the most extraordinary fabulous cake for my daughter Rachel's Bat Mitzvah. Rachel's theme was a "Designer Extrordinaire", it was a tiered train suitcase style layer cake with mini designer style gift boxes for her 13 candles.............Everyone is still talking about how stunning and delicious the cake was.................I would reccommend Cakes by Design, Edible Art to all - showcasing your special occasion.
