  • Chris at A Gift Of Taste is AMAZING!!! She was extremely helpful in the process of choosing the type of cake we wanted for our wedding. She gave us excellent recommendations in regard to the decorations we chose for our cake. We got exactly what we wanted and got lots of compliments on both the appearance and the taste of our cake.

  • We decided to have cupcakes which was great because it allowed us to select three delicious flavors. The design was beautiful and the cake was incredible.

  • Chris at "A Gift of Taste" was extremely accommodating. My husband (now) and I had no idea what kind of wedding cake we wanted, we just knew what we didn't want. We tried 3 different types of cake & filling and were amazed at them all. The same day we had taste tests with 3 other Bakery's in the area but none came close. We were adamant on having butter cream frosting which is harder to work with with and doesn't last as long as fondant, but Chris worked miracles with the frosting and I can truly say our wedding cake was The most BEAUTIFUL & DELICIOUS ever made! We had 4 round layers 2 were white cake with lemon zest and lemon chiffon with fresh strawberries & 2 were chocolate cake (with chocolate chips) and chocolate mousse with raspberries!! Most of the guests, we heard later, all went back for at least 1 more piece of cake, if not more! I just want to add that our caterer had outstanding food at the meal & many appetizers so no one was starving, the cake was just that GREAT! T... Read more

  • We got our wedding cake as part of a package through Wedgewood Event Services, and so expected a mediocre cake. A Gift of Taste surprised us with a delicious cake that was customized exactly how we wanted it, all without charging extra.

  • My cake was just like I imagined it! Everything was exactly the way we designed it when we first met with this bakery and tasted even better. All of our guests told us how good our cake was. We would definitely use them again.

  • I am a Wedgewood Sterling Hills bride. A few months before our wedding I met with Cris at A Gift of Taste. We picked out our flavors and designed one tier(out of 3). I was supposed to contact her when I decided what I wanted on the remaining tiers. I completely forgot in the craziness of DIY wedding planning. A week before the wedding, she contacted me and I completely handed over the reins. My cake was a surprise and I couldn't have been any more pleased with what was presented. A beautiful cake with my tattoo on one tier, and the WuTang logo tastefully hidden on another. All things that were discussed but I had no idea how she would pull it off. INCREDIBLE JOB CRIS!! Thank you:)

  • Our cake was amazing, every detail we asked for was spot on and was exactly what we asked for. They were very helpful in helping us make decisions regarding the design of our cake and made many helpful suggestions to help design the cake we wanted. Very nice, very helpful and the cake was amazing!

  • This place was amazing. The cakes we tried were so delicious my husband and I couldn't decide what flavor to get, do we ended up getting both. The staff was so patient when we were deciding what we wanted our cake design to be. Have been recconmending this bakery to all my friends because they are so talented.

  • A Gift of Taste is a wonderful bakery. Everyone is very helpful and creative. When meeting with Chris she was very informative and recommended their popular flavors as well as what fillings would match the cake best. The cake came exactly how we had discussed and was WONDERFUL in flavor. All my guests were commenting how moist and flavorful it was.

  • My husband and I aren't big cake eaters so we had no clue what we were doing when I had to pick cakes for our tasting. Once I called the shop and set up a tasting and my cake selections didn't sound like the best options, they helped me put the best cakes with the best toppings. I had fun at the tasting with my family and it turned out really good. It was a bit tense at first because I was running late and I understand that was my bad, but I felt that they weren't happy with me being 25 minutes late. Once the tenseness was gone we had so much fun! 30 minutes later I had my wedding cake and she even drew a picture of exactly how it would look. I dropped off my bobble head cake toppers two days before the wedding and they did just as they promised . My cake was delivered on time and it was perfect! Got rave reviews from all our guest. I would totally recommend A gift of taste, you won't be disappointed.

  • I went with A Gift Of Taste because they were provided by my venue with Wedgewood. The shop was filthy. We came in for our cake tasting and she gave me a lot of attitude because I scheduled our tasting 6 months before the wedding. She gave us the opportunity to try 3 different cakes. She had an employee bring us the small cakes, we made our decision quickly, then you're instructed to ring this doorbell that rings in the back to call someone to the front. We rang it upon being done and waited 20 min for anyone to come from the back. She seemed irritated that we were there. I gave her a picture of how we'd like the cake and then we promptly left the dusty store. My fiance mentioned how there was dirt and grime everywhere and the shop front was not well-kept. I don't know how I feel about food coming out of a place so dirty! The cake ended up beautiful and exactly how we asked - however I wouldn't have chosen this place had my venue not provided their services.

  • I found this vendor through wedgewood. I am soo happy that they were a part of our wedding package because our cake came out EXACTLY the way we wanted it and it tasted amazing!! We received sooo many compliments on it the day of and to this day we will still get some of our family and friends saying " remember your wedding cake, that was soo good.." Understandably so, Cris is a little leary of setting up tastings more than 4 months in advance. We were so anxious to finalize our cake and get it checked off our list that we had our tasting a bit early. And although I second guessed some details along the way, I didn't have anything changed and I'm so glad we went with our first instinct. Cris was so patient and her and her team have amazing talent. Even though they are about 1 1/2 hrs away from where we live, we will be ordering our anniversary cake from here :)
