  • I wish I could give them a glowing review but I just can't. First and foremost, the cake and cupcakes were delicious and all of our guests loved them. The main problem that I have is with the service that we received. We ordered 110 cupcakes in four different flavors and a square top tier that would fit on a 10" cake stand that my husband I could cut into. We showed Amanda a picture of a cake that had a fondant design that looked like lace and was elevated on the cake stand because it had fondant points on the bottom that hung down (the best way I can describe it is that it looked like a bunting pulled straight). When we showed Amanda the photo she pointed at it and said "Is this the part that you really like?" and we told her yes. In all honesty it was the ONLY design option that we asked for with the cake and the cupcakes. The Sunday before the wedding I got a phone call at 5:55pm from someone named Tim calling to go over some things in the contract. In the message he says "We close ... Read more

  • The cake you created for our daughter's wedding surpassed our expectactions. Not only was it a work of art, it was absolutely delicious as well. It looked just like the photo on your website. Many pictures were taken before the cake quickly disappeared. Everyone oohed and aahed over the elegance and wonderful flavor. You delivered it to the restaurant well in advance of the arrival of the guests and it was displayed beautifully. We had to make wedding plans on very short notice and your staff was so helpful. This was no small feat, as you had to work with us long-distance. Thank you for adding so much to such a joyous occasion. Your creativity and attention to detail are unparalleled in our opinion. You are quite simply the best in Boston. Steve and Susie Tunning Middletown, OH

  • Amanda makes truly delicious cake. Our consultation with her was professional and pleasant, and she understood our needs and ideas perfectly. If you want a cake that looks good AND tastes good, I highly recommend her. Our cake was a three tiered apple and pumpkin cake. It was so moist and yummy that my husband got me a small apple cake from Amanda three months later for my birthday.

  • Amanda and her team created a stunning, creative and tasty wedding cake for our wedding at the artists for humanity epicenter. She created a visually arresting design based off our invitations that was just out of this world. Some of our guests initially thought it was not a real cake- it looked that unbelievable! It was a very collaborative design process and I appreciated that Amanda had a background in art- it definitely showed when it came to the cake. I also am continuing to get compliments on both the look and taste of the cake. I never thought I'd hear someone say "that fondant was so tasty!" but her homemade marshmallow fondant is pretty awesome and the cake and fillings were delicious. Payment and delivery was seamless- there was a whole team there making sure everything was just right and it was. I am not sure I can wait until our 1 year anniversary to eat the cake we froze....

  • It's the day after my wedding and before I even finish opening my gifts or start writing the thank you cards, I want to post this review -- I am that impressed! I chose Amanda Oakleaf Cakes on a complete whim. My husband Ryan is really into cake shows, so I thought it might be kind of cool to leave my comfort zone of the vanilla cake + white icing three-tiered deal and get something a bit different. Ryan and I were getting married at a friend's beach house in Nahant, so we wanted something beach-themed. Amanda had some great ideas. What we ended up with was a massive cake (at least by regular standards) that matched the scenery, our invitations and captured our style. In fact, the sugar replica of Graves Light was completely on point and the figurines of the two grooms (these folks are very same-sex marriage friendly, we were well-treated) were really cute. Everyone at the wedding raved at how the cake looked and then raved again when they tasted it. The buttercream frosting was... Read more

  • Amanda and her staff made an amazing daisy cake for out wedding. People kept asking me if the cake was real, as it looked just that perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend Amanda as she and her staff are friendly, outgoing and do beautiful work.

  • We had Amanda Oakleaf create a cupcake wedding tower for us with a square topper and caricatures of my husband and I on top. They were the most delicious cupcakes/cake I've ever had at any event--and I'm proud to say it was my own. The adorable caricatures were so spot on and so fabulous. The cupcakes were absolutely scrumptious and the entire thing a huge hit. The topper, decorations, and entire cupcake tower were so perfect and so us! They did an amazing job of capturing us and the sentiment we were going for. I should add that all the cupcakes were consumed! Yum!

  • To anyone looking for the most spectacular wedding cake of their lives, Amanda Oakleaf Cakes delivers. We had two cakes made for our wedding event. One more traditional three-tiered cake and one specialty cake consisting of a scene set in the Grand Tetons National Park with figurines of ourselves, and our two dogs, hiking. Not only was the professionalism beyond appreciated the cakes were better than we could ever have imagined and tasty too! We got so many positive comments on our cakes of guests wanting to know who did them for us and how we found them that we just started handing out Amanda Oakleaf's notecards with the information on them during our reception! I would truely recommend using this vendor to ensure that your wedding cake dreams come true.

  • The cake Amanda created for us is not your typical wedding cake but rather a piece of art. Besides looking stunning it was extremely delicious. (And fondant is not easy to pull off) We highly recommend her.

  • My husband and I had some specific ideas in mind for our Red Sox/Yankees themed wedding cake and had struggled to find a baker that could turn our ideas into cake. We met with Amanda and were delighted not only by the taste and quality of her cakes and frostings, but also by her enthusiasm to work with us. The cake turned out amazing and was the talk of the wedding. We wholeheartedly recommend Amanda and her team and will look to her for future cakes as well.

  • I had Amanda design a custom wedding cake in the shape of an airplane as that's where my husband and I met. You cannot believe this cake, it was amazing! This was a surprise for my husband and he was absolutely blown away as were all of our guests. It was much more life-like than I ever imagined and it tasted yummy...lemon cake with raspberry merengue. The staff was professional and easy to work with and I would use her again in a heartbeat for any specialty cake needs...birthday, anniversary, etc. It was hard for me to schedule a tasting as I'm not local and there aren't weekend tastings but Amanda was kind enough to make up a batch of cupcakes in different flavor combinations so we could choose. People are still sending notes about this cake!

  • Amanda did not make a wedding cake for me, but did design a custom cake for my husband's 40th birthday. He liked it so much he made everyone wait an entire day before cutting in to the cake. The cake design was based on album cover art work for Iron Maiden's Benjamin Breeg Album. I sent her pictures and my ideas for the cake and she made my vision come to life! Our guests were in awe. What an artist! Not only did the cake look amazing, but it tasted wonderful as well! Her cake helped make my husband's birthday party an unforgettable event! I want to get married again just so I can have her design my wedding cake!

  • Cake was DELICIOUS, moist, very fresh tasting, and everyone raved about it. They make there own marshmallow fondant, which was superb, not overly sweet like most. And the icing was so smooth and blended so wonderfully with the cake itself. Our cake tasting was a lot of fun, and Ms. Oakleaf was entirely pleasant, insightful, and communicative about what she could do and what would work and wouldn't physically. As far as the design goes...it was not exactly what I thought it was going to look like, however I did say to them when they were very patiently explaining the design that anything was fine, and from the portfolio we trusted them completely. I did connect the design with the rough sketch, and it was very nice, however I feel it was a little pricey for the design we got. But for the record, it was probably the best tasting cake we have ever had, and we eat a lot of cake. A lot.

  • Amanda was fabulous. I tried to describe what I was looking for on my cake and she sent over two sketches that same evening. We changed the number of servings later, but she was completely flexible. And the cake was absolutely beautiful. i had so many compliments and the cake was absolutely delcious. She used this marshmallow fondant which was actually tasty. We had a mixture of red velvet and carrot cake. The red velvet cake was a hit.
