  • My husband and I tasted so many cakes and visited several bakeries. Alexandria Pastry Shop stood out because it tasted the best. Period. We opted for three flavors: carrot cake, Red Velvet, and Bavarian cream. All were amazing, especially the carrot cake, probably because the carrot is sautéed in butter before it's put into the batter! Tom and his team were amazing, and the end product was a delicious, three-level winter wedding cake that looked like it was dusted in snow. It also got rave reviews from our guests!

  • We absolutely loved our wedding cake from Alexandria Pastry Shop! We chose the raspberry buttercream and it was absolutely delicious, We received so many compliments on our wedding cake after our reception, and we are so glad we booked this business!

  • I've been going to Alexandria Pastry Shop since I was a kid, and they have the most delicious pastries and cakes. I knew they had to do my wedding cake. When we tasted cakes we tried the standard cakes with buttercream frosting, which were good, but the owner, Tom Lally, insisted we try the mousse cakes, and he brought us a few pieces to try. Wow, they were amazing! We had a hard time picking a flavor, but eventually went with the "black and white," which had layers of chocolate and white chocolate mousse and sponge. I was worried the mousse wouldn't hold up for a summer wedding, but Tom assured me it would, and he was right. They also worked with me to create a custom design that mimicked the lace pattern on my dress. The cake came out beautiful and everyone thought it was delicious. I can't wait to eat the top layer on our anniversary next year!

  • Tom and the team at Alexandria Pastry were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were super friendly when we first met them for our cake tasting, and made it clear that they were willing to do whatever we needed to make our day special. Not only did they make one of the most delicious wedding cakes I've ever tasted, they also helped us with mini desserts for the dessert buffet we wanted at our wedding. Both the pastries they made and the cake were huge hits, and we would highly recommend them for all your baking needs!

  • I went to Alexandria Pastry shop for my wedding cake. I had to go in for several appointments to make sure my cakes would be perfect and there was someone there always ready to help me. My wedding cake was perfect. The sugar flowers were arranged beautifully on the cake and though I did not get to taste my wedding cake, due to too much dancing, I was told by guests that it was delicious. I highly recommend Alexandria Pastry Shop. They are a pleasure to work with.

  • We used Alexandria Pastry Shop for our wedding cake, which took place on 7/14/18 in Arlington, VA. Our consultant Jessica was great to work with and worked with us to achieve our vision for the cake. We submitted a custom picture to APS and they were able to replicate the cake exactly how we envisioned! The cake was delivered on time the day of the wedding and the cake topper was placed on top without issue. Above all, the cake was extremely delicious and you could tell it was freshly baked! I would not hesitate to recommend their wedding cake services!

  • We had a wonderful experience with Alexandria Pastry Shop. It's a small, family-owned business and they really pay attention to detail. We worked with Jessica, and she could not have been more responsive and helpful. She helped us achieve the effect we wanted while still staying within our budget. At many weddings I've attended in the past, the cake is pretty but not all that flavorful. Our cake was both gorgeous AND delicious!

  • Our wedding cake was absolutely perfect! We requested a mixture of two different styles and they pulled it off without a problem!! We also had a small sugar free cake for some family members made and they worked with us on everything. Our wedding cake was red velvet and it was absolutely delicious!! All of their pastries are to die for!

  • Their customer service was excellent from the day we did cake tasting until the delivery of our wedding cake. We had 3 different of their specialty flavors (passion fruit, mango guava) for each tier of our cake. It was delicious. I would recommend them, as their cakes are amazing.

  • Got a cake through Alexandria pastry as they partner with our reception venue (Pinstripes North Bethesda) and it was the easiest thing we had to plan! Tasting was great... They even whipped up a few options on the fly for us to taste. Guests loved the flavors saying the fondant was so light and marshmallow like... And I usually don't like fondant but it was delicious. The triple chocolate bavarian and the golden vanilla with vanilla buttercream were outstanding

  • The cakes were light and delicious. For a couple that doesn't enjoy very sweet buttercream frosting, this place was the best. The prices weren't bad at all either!
