  • Donna did such a great job with our cake, we loved it and so did our guests. When picking our wedding cake, we didn’t just want something that tastes like a sheet pan cake from a grocery store, we wanted an actually good tasting cake that’s more than an afterthought. Donna really delivered. The sponge was moist and flavorful, the filling was delicious, and the buttercream frosting was the perfect level of sweetness, and it wasn’t slathered on. It was a legitimately good cake! Her tasting process was also really easy, especially given COVID protocols, and she was very amenable to any kind of design we wanted. The cost of the cake was included in the package for our venue, so I can’t speak to the cost or value, but I can attest that everything else was great.

  • Donna and her team make the most beautiful cakes, and really offer the most creative and delicious variety of flavors, fillings, and frostings. Our wedding cake was gorgeous and our guests commented on how delicious it tasted. Donna is easy to work with, very responsive to communication, and makes the whole process easy and stress-free. We are so grateful for such a special cake that also tasted amazing!

  • With 2020 being a crazy year I needed a wedding cake kind of last minute! Donna was great to work with and I'm so happy with how everything turned out! We were able to have a cake tasting at home, and picked cake designs over the phone/ email with pictures. The final product was more beautiful than I could have imagined! Thank you so much for having great communication and flexibility! I would really recommend Creative Cakes by Donna for other brides!!

  • Best. Cake. Ever! The cake exceeded our expectations and Donna was great to work with. She was available by email, phone and in person and was very helpful given the challenges of covid restrictions earlier this year. Our guests loved the cake so much we hardly had any leftovers!! It was perfect--thank you Donna!!

  • As part of our wedding catering package, we had the pleasure of working with Donna to create our wedding cake. Setting up the appointment was very easy, and Donna was incredibly accommodating when my now-husband and I got stuck in literally *hours* of traffic and were very late to our tasting appointment. She stayed open late for us and didn't make us feel rushed at all (in fact, we were there for nearly 2 hours). It was so fun to taste all the combinations, and everything was delicious. We settled on an almond cake, with a layer of pistachio and coconut in between. Neither of us were really fussed about what the buttercream frosting looked like - we pointed to a picture she showed us and said that looks good! Donna said she would provide some fall florals to accent the cake. We left our cake topper with her and went on our merry way! Donna called a few days before the wedding to confirm guest count, flavors, and delivery.  Arriving at the wedding venue, the cake is the first thing... Read more

  • Donna did a fantastic job with my wedding cake! Right from when I first called her she was friendly and accommodating and took the time to go through different options with me. She gave us lots of samples to take home when we went in for a tasting and was up for any design and decoration we wanted. She followed up with us as the wedding date got closer and was also really flexible when we changed our minds about the design 10 days out. Donna worked with our venue and florist to pull of the logistics of the cake delivery without a hitch, which also made our lives easier on the day of. Our cake was gorgeous and so delicious! We did chocolate with chocolate mousse with light raspberry filling. Many guests remarked that it was the best wedding cake they had ever had. We intended to freeze the top for our anniversary but the cake was so good we had it the next day with family!! Would highly recommend Donna to bake your wedding cake!

  • We found Donna after a horrible experience with another cake vendor we had been looking at. Feeling discouraged, we took a recommendation from a friend and I am so glad we did. Donna has been such a pleasure and it feels like you're chatting with a friend when you speak with her. She made us up a take home cake testing kit due to COVID restrictions and it ended up being such a fun little date night My fiancé wanted me to try and call to get a second round because the sample cakes were THAT GOOD. When we found out Donna actually made my fiancé's mother's wedding cake, we were sold! What a fun history to share. I am so excited to see our cake from Donna, I know she will not disappoint. She really has been a ray of sunshine in what has been a dreary COVID wedding planning experience! 10/10

  • Donna made the cake for my wedding and it was absolutely gorgeous! She was fantastic to work with. Due to Covid, my fiance and I were unable to meet with her in person and yet she was able to capture exactly what we wanted and then some. She was super pleasant and helpful in the phone conversations we had with her to plan the cake, and it tasted delicious! Would definitely use her again and I will happily recommend her cakes to anyone looking for a wedding cake!

  • Donna was an absolute pleasure to work with. When we arrived for our consultation, we were able to see models of many of the beautiful cakes she's created, then take home a bunch of samples to taste at our leisure (because of COVID). She immediately understood exactly what we wanted, and executed our vision perfectly. This is not to mention that the cake was DELICIOUS! You're in EXTREMELY capable hands with Creative Cakes by Donna--highly recommend!

  • We had the pleasure of having Donna create our wedding cake and she was excellent! Our original venue had a selection of her flavors at their open house and we were hooked. With the craziness of COVID we ended up changing almost everything about our day, but not our cake! The flavor (strawberry shortcake) did not disappoint and Donna was so flexible with our changed date and navigating a pickup the day before our event to accommodate our needs!

    Congratulations to you both Nicole. And thank you for the wonderful review. We were happy to be chosen as part of your special day. Donna

  • We were able to get a cake from Creative Cakes by Donna for our wedding at the Pond House Café and are so glad we did! We really enjoyed the tasting where we got to try a variety of cake and fillings. We ultimately decided on a chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling. We also got to talk through some design ideas with Donna while she sketched out our vision of a winter cake inspired by a cable knit sweater. She was so friendly and easy to work with! When we saw our cake at the wedding, it was so beautiful and exactly what we had envisioned. The only thing better than how it looked was how it tasted – it was hands down the best wedding cake I’ve ever had! We had so many of our guests tell us how good it was. We got to take some home after the wedding as well, which was awesome. Highly recommend Creative Cakes by Donna because you’ll get artistry AND a delicious dessert for your special day!

  • Donna is fantastic. When we met her she had such a great personality. So many cakes and flavors but never made you feel overwhelmed. My wife and I knew what we wanted and she executed. Cake was so tasty that when I dropped the topper off she even let me has another sampler of our flavor. The only issue you will have is that it is so beautiful you don’t want to cut it. Moist and delicious to the last bite!

  • Donna was great with our experience. We didn't quite have a design idea down when we met but didn't pressure us and gave a time to figure it out. Plus the almond cake tasted amazing! Our guests loved it!
