  • Caren is incredible! She is fun to work with and very helpful, not to mention the cake she made for our wedding was amazing. She was able to design our cake exactly how we wanted it, whereas other people we tried to work with were difficult. She was easy to reach at all times and she is very professional, yet fun. And, she's very affordable! We looks forward to ordering cakes for other events from her in the future!

  • Caren did a fabulous job with our wedding cake. People are still talking about it. She came early and made sure that it was all set up beautifully. The cake was as delicious as it was gorgeous. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants a quality cake for a special occasion.

  • Caren was so great to work with. She invited us to do a tasting then listened to all my ideas and looked at all my photos. She really brought my ideas to life. She was at the venue when I arrived setting it up in the perfect location (because she had been there before). My husband is a triathlete so she incorporated something for him on the back of the cake, the swim bike run logo, and he loved it. The cupcakes not only looked great but tasted amazing. They were gone so quick! Luckily a few were reserved for us or we wouldn't have had any. We are saving our cake topper for our one year anniversary and look forward to it! I plan on using Caren again!

  • Caren is absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond on my wedding cake, and is the most flexible person I've ever met. Her prices were also very good compared to many bakeries. She does whatever little designs you want on the cake for no extra charge (you may have to pay more for fondant flowers, but I had dots, swirls, ribbon, and my new initial all decorated on the cake for no extra charge). She also has a wide array of flavors and will do multiple ones for no extra charge. You can even have each layer within a tier have different flavors, as we did to make all of our guests happy! For my 5:00 wedding, she arrived around 3:00 with the cake, and all I had to do was leave out my cake topper and any flowers I wanted on it and she set everything up. She also has a beautiful silver cake tray she will rent to you as well. We went with a buttercream icing instead of fondant, and it was incredible smooth looking as well. All of my guests commented on how beautiful the cake was as... Read more

  • Caren was a pleasure to work with. When I went to meet her she had her cakes ready for me to taste. They were great! Her price per slice was the best I could find around. She let me have different flavors for each tier and did not charge extra. The cake design turned out amazing, just what I wanted it to be. Everyone loved the cakes flavors. Caren bakes out of her house which was one reason her prices were more afforable. I would recommed her to any bride.

  • Caren made our wedding cake when my husband and I got married back in June. She did a wonderful job! We loved her immediately upon our first meeting. She is very laid back, honest, and no frills. She makes DELICIOUS cake and is very affordable. We think her services are very high in value for the cost. She was gracious enough to try a new recipe for us because we wanted sweet potato cake - and hers was awesome. Everybody at the reception were talking about how good the cake was and we agreed. She was accommodating, professional, and creative. We discussed a design, but when we saw our cake it was more beautiful than we imagined! Just what we wanted. Caren is an awesome cake designer and we would certainly recommend her to anybody who wants an affordable, delicious wedding cake!

  • Cakes by Caren did a fantastic job with my wedding cake. Everyone at the wedding loved it and it tasted great! I brought her my invitation and she designed the cake around it. It was just what I wanted. Not only did it taste great and look great but it was really reasonably priced. If you're looking for a beautiful, great tasting wedding cake you can afford you should definitely check out Cakes by Caren!

  • The Cake was perfect!! Just want I wanted! The only reason for the lower review for responsiveness is because I overpaid for the cake and she ignored all e-mails where I asked to be refunded for what we overpaid (she somehow got all of my other e-mails, just didn't get the ones where I explained how I overpaid) I had paid more for my 2nd payment because she was still learning how to take Card payments, but still paid the full amount for my 3rd payment completely forgetting that I had overpaid the 2nd time. Not looking like I will ever get that refund, Ha! At least the cake was out of this world cool and beautiful!!

  • Caren made a beautiful and tasty cake for my wedding day! Despite a fender bender when bringing the cake to the reception, she still managed to deliver a beautiful and delicious cake. I didn't even know until later when she called me that anything was up. Guess I was too blissed out by my amazing day to recognize that the cake wasn't 100% perfect. Suffice to say that even when Caren is up against monstrous odds she still produced a wonderful cake. She is professional, prompt, and goes above and beyond for her clients!

  • Caren provide the anniversary cake for our 41th wedding anniversary celebration. The cake was so beautiful it became the focal point of our tables... Caren worked with us in design and flavor and was a complete professional. She made suggestions and gave us ideas we hadn't thought of. She adjusted her schedule to provide the delivery time we needed and even helped us decide how and where the cake should be displayed. We choose moca for our cake flavor. It was awesome. The cake melted in your mouth and many of our friends and family went back for seconds. Our cake was so special and we are so thankful to Caren for helping us make our anniversary a truly memorable event. We will not hesitate to use Cakes by Caren again for all our events. Thanks Caren.
