  • 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!!

  • 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 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!

  • 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!

  • Thanks so much to Creative Cakes by Donna, and Donna herself for an amazing wedding cake that not only looked phenomenal but also tasted incredible! When we were looking at cake vendors I was worried because I didn’t know what kind of a timetable was necessary and we were only looking a couple months out from our wedding. Donna is a baking rock star! She assuaged all of my concerns and helped my (now) wife and I to design a cake that really fit our personality. We walked into the tasting thinking we’d be going with something chocolate and after trying all of the different options decided instead to embrace our fall wedding and go with the spice cake! Day of the wedding I was blown away by how beautiful the cake was! It surpassed all my expectations! Truly a work of art! A delicious work of art! We got so many compliments on the flavoring! Everyone loved the spice cake and agreed that it was the perfect wedding cake for the event! Thanks Donna for making a cake that made our speci... Read more

  • My experience Working with Donna to create my wedding cake was wonderful. She had great suggestions. The wedding cake came out even better than the picture I showed her. I choose the lemon cake with vanilla filling and fresh raspberries. Our guests loved the cake and talked about it for days. It was so moist and flavorful. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Donna. She made it such a wonderful experience. Thank you Donna for creating the wedding cake of my dreams.

  • We LOVED our cake from Donna. She was one of the 2 vendors that Pond House gives and an option. We tried her cake during the open house, and was amazing! So flavorful and moist. We called to book our tasting this past spring. I had also requested to try the spice cake, as I was told that was not always on the tasting sample. (They made a whole cupcake in that flavor for us, I was impressed! ) When we arrived, we sat with Donna, looked around the showroom and some photos of past cakes she has made. I definitely suggest doing some research first on her Instagram and website to see a few styles, and get an idea as to what you may want. As we talked through the process, we settled on a very classic 3 tier round cake. Each layer with a different buttercream texture. We had her also add flowers from her garden in out color scheme (small extra charge, as that is not included in the venue package.) Then comes the tasting! My husband and I polished the whole plate! We ended up with t... Read more

  • Having spent 30 years in the food industry, I can say Donna and her cakes are the REAL DEAL. From the first phone call, Donna made sure to get to know us. Throughout the entire process she was very helpful and communicative. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed sitting in her shop and chatting about cake (and food and drink!) and our lives and what brought us together. We chose a lemon cake with lemon filling with alternating layers of strawberries and blueberries. Our loved ones are still raving about the delicious moist cake! There is a reason that she has been at this for such a long time. Her talent, passion and ability to really connect with her clients are all reasons that Donna is such a gem. Thank you for your part in making our day perfect Donna!

    Congratulations Johanna to you both! It was a pleasure talking to you and meeting you. And it was a pleasure to be a part of your special day. Donna
