  • As dessert lovers, having a wedding cake that was delicious was really important to us. We drove over an hour to try Bean Counter Bakery after receiving multiple recommendations. We had high expectations and were definitely not disappointed. Alice is wonderful; she has so many amazing flavors and worked with us to come up with a cake that looked classy but also reflected our style/preferences. We ended up going with a pretty untraditional wedding cake (chocolate with mocha filling and ganache frosting) and it was a huge hit. Given that she had worked with our venue before, she was actually able to offer us a topping that typically we wouldn’t be able to get in summer. I think the best way to evaluate their quality is the fact that due to covid, our numbers for our wedding were down from 120 to 70 guests. We still ordered enough cake for all 120 thinking we could enjoy our leftovers for weeks after the wedding. The cake was so popular that we had ended up with just a few slices left o... Read more

  • Our wedding cake from the bean counter was fantastic.  We went with an understated, simple cake design for our micro wedding, yet it was truly very elegant and exactly what we wanted.  We didn't really expect guests to comment on the cake, but MANY guests told us how truly beautiful and delicious the cake was.  We loved it and our guests could not get enough either!  We also had to change our wedding plans on short notice due to COVID.  We contacted Alice a month before our micro wedding and she took care of us right away.  We did a tasting, placed the order and on the day of the wedding the bean counter delivered everything seamlessly.  It was easy, perfect and truly the best wedding cake I've ever had.  We will use the bean counter again for any future events and occasions!  Highly recommend that you book with them!

  • The most wonderful wedding cake we could have imagined. Alice worked with us to get just the right combination of flavors and options to make the bride and groom happy! We did our tasting during COVID and felt safe the whole time. Alice was always willing to go with the changes due to COVID, particularly after our venue had changed from the Worcester area and to Cape Cod. They delivered the perfect cake all the way to us there! The cake was unbelievable, and I look forward to using them for all of my future events! No need to keep looking, BOOK THEM NOW!

  • Our experience with the Bean Counter was excellent. Originally they were included in our venue package but when COVID changed out plans and we relocated our venue we knew we wanted to keep Bean Counter as our bakery! Alice and team were so flexible when we changed things just a few weeks before the wedding. Everything came out perfect! We can't recommend them enough!

  • Alice and her team are amazing at what they do. She's been doing this for decades, and has made cakes of all different types and sizes. We ended up having a two layer cake for about 80 people that was light on the frosting and emphasized some natural flowers. Bean Counter Bakery delivered from Worcester to our venue at The Oceanview of Nahant in their special cake-mobile, and they beautifully decorated the cake with flowers left form our florist. There are so many details about the wedding cake that Bean Counter Bakery has mastered. For example, our pinterest cake pins were a lot of four layer cakes, so there were some artistic subtleties that needed to be addressed translating designs to a two layer cake. Alice automatically saw that and was really patient explaining and drawing pictures to us. Our families were also blown away by how the cake tasted; they were expecting a cake that was too sweet or too dense, whereas the cake ended up just being delicious.

  • Our guests are still raving about our wedding cake (and we got married 8 months ago)! I've been planning weddings in the Boston market for 10+ years and every time one of my clients shares just how much they love dessert and how important the taste / flavor of their wedding cake will be... I ALWAYS bring them to Alice. The cakes that come out of this bake shop are absolutely delicious and the flavor options are endless! My husband and I ended up choosing three flavors for our cake (Vanilla Buttercream with Rainbow Chips and Funfetti Cake (just like my mother-in-law use to make when my husband was a kid), White Chocolate Peppermint Buttercream and Chocolate Cake (think Peppermint Pattie!), and White Chocolate Amaretto Buttercream with Fresh Strawberries and Vanilla Cake (one of my mom's specialties)! All three were DELICIOUS!!!! In addition to being super tasty, Alice and her team did an incredible job with the design. I am pretty particular about wedding design / décor and wan... Read more

  • When my husband and I were looking for the perfect dessert vendor, we knew right away that nothing compared to Bean Counter. The quality of the desserts, wide variety, and working with Alice were unmatched! My jaw dropped when I finally saw our cake at the reception. It was unlike anything I'd ever seen. Alice had made hydrangea sugar flowers with a blue shade that matched my bridesmaids' dresses. The flowers covered the top tier of the cake. I was blown away! Guests couldn't stop raving about how delicious the wedding cake was and our small desserts all selected from the Bean Counter. If you are looking in the Worcester area, I just want to say that I have reached out to every dessert vendor in the area. When I told them that I wanted a traditional wedding cake, some of them even recommended Bean Counter to me. I felt like this was the easiest decision we made. Work with Alice, pick Bean Counter, have a great experience!!

  • We got married on 10/26/19 in Princeton, MA. We got our cake made by Alice and they delivered it to our venue! The cake is so amazing! I ate all the leftovers within a week. She uses the best ingredients and the cake was beautiful! She gives you many options on how you want the wedding cake to look. She is so nice and a pleasure to work with during the wedding planning process.

  • My husband and I aren't even cake people but our cake was absolutely beautiful and delicious! Alice was great to work with - it is hard as the wedding approaches finalizing details and Alice took it upon herself to email our venue for a final guest count which we appreciated so much! We bought our own cake topper and had our florist provide cake flowers and our coordinator left all that on the cake table and Alice handled it all. We saved the top tier but on our first anniversary Alice will bake a fresh top tier for our anniversary! Alice and staff really know what they are doing and the cake was SO good!

  • Alice at Bean Counter was an absolute angel! Not only did she help us design the wedding cake and cupcake spread of our dreams, she was incredibly helpful and professional with accommodating for allergies in the guest list and wedding party. One of our guests had severe allergies to several extremely common ingredients, to the point that she had not been able to safely have cake for almost a decade. Alice was able to accommodate every single allergy, and the guest was so happy she cried at the reception, saying it was one of the best cupcakes she had ever had. She wasn't the only one: our guests DEVOURED the cupcakes, and everyone raved about them all night! Delivery was prompt, everything was perfect, and Alice was an absolute joy to work with.

  • Absolutely perfect in everyway! Like many in 2020, we had to change our wedding plans completely. We moved our wedding (ceremony) up 2 months. We decided to give our guests a cupcake favor and have a small cake for just us (no ceremony). The Bean counter could not have been a better. They exceeded my expectations. We chose the death by chocolate cupcakes and everyone was raving about them!! One of my friends didn't eat hers till a few days later, and she said you couldn't even tell!! We had vanilla cake with buttercream for us and it tasted like it was just baked out of the oven! It is THE BEST cake I have ever had. We didn't have a formal tasting because of time, so we drove all around MA trying cupcakes and nothing even compared!!! Seriously the best cake ever!!!!

  • We selected this bakery for our wedding cake based on reviews and we were definitely pleased with the outcome. We incorporated our sons 3rd birthday into our wedding and our wedding cake. The Bean Counter provided a beautiful wedding cake with an peekaboo lego wall in one corner. It was an amazing collaboration of elegance and childs play. The cake was delicious, my guests still rave about it. I would definitely recommend this bakery for your special day.
