  • In short, I give Custom Cake Design (CCD) a 1-star review based on poor customer service. My fiancee and I were in the hunt for a cake for our upcoming wedding. We decided to give CCD a chance after seeing positive reviews. As a result, CCD scheduled an appointment for when my fiancee traveled to town - we are a long-distance couple and she only comes in so often to the WMA. All scheduling occurred via email exchanges in which CCD told us to come by between 1100-1500 on a Sunday - this was odd given their normal business hours were not open on Sundays. That said, CCD scheduled us for a one-hour tasting on a Sunday. The fiancee and I drove from north western VA to CCD's Gainesville, MD facility. Upon arriving, we found CCD's doors locked and unresponsive to our knocks. We attempted multiple phone calls and drove around the industrial park area just in case we had an address mix-up. We also checked our email exchange with CCD to ensure we did not mis-interpret the appointment. ... Read more

  • We found custom cake designs through our venue Milton Ridge. We chose them because of their previous collaborations and the waiver of the delivery fee, which was nice. When we went for our cake tasting it was nice to see that they understood what we were looking for. Though the cake was delicious I do think that they could have done a better job matching the height of the cake from the example I gave them. I mentioned this specifically the day of and was told it will look exactly like it. And though they did a great job at mastering the same look the height wasn’t fully matched. All in all they have several choices for cake flavors.

  • We were planning the retirement party for the CEO of our company and Raquel helped us right from the inception of the cake design to setting up the cake and cupcakes for the event. She was patient and listened to our ideas, she provided her recommendations and worked with us at every step of the way during the planning process and captured perfectly all the elements of the design that we wanted to incorporate in the cake and cake topper. The cake and cupcakes were DELICIOUS!!! They were an instant hit with the employees. We highly recommend Raquel and the Custom Cake Design to anyone planning an event- big or small.

  • What a wonderful experience! I worked with Custom Cakes to make my mom's 60th birthday cake. The cake came out perfect and beyond anything we expected. My mom was so excited! The entire process was made so easy for me by the staff. They did exactly what they said they would from beginning to delivery. Highly recommend!!!

  • The cake was amazing! We did a tasting to pick the right flavor and it arrived on time, looked beautiful, and tasted delicious! They delivered from Maryland to Virgina with a very reasonable fee. They even included the box for the top tier with instructions on how to save it!

  • Our wedding cake looked amazing and tasted delicious! They have so many flavors we had a hard time deciding and ended up getting a couple different cupcake flavors with our cake. Everyone said how good they were. They contacted me ahead of time to make sure everything was how I wanted and delivered the cake to our venue. Would definitely recommend!

    Thanks so much for the feedback Jessica. Our goal is to provide our customers the best products ever. Please kip us in mind for further orders, and we are happy to hear that everybody enjoyed the cake. Thanks you, Custom cake design

  • Having been raised outside the US, my husband really hoped to have merengue frosting rather than buttercream for our wedding. Other vendors told us this was not possible, but Raquel went out of her way to make it happen. Don't let the AOL email address fool you. CCD was pleasant to work with, and the cake was delicious!

  • This is a tough one. I'll start by saying that the flavors were quite yummy! And the design was perfect. However, they didn't use my cake topper... there was a mix up and someone else's was grabbed instead of mine. The one that was on my cake was a blonde bride (I'm brunette) and a very boring couple (they were just standing there), ours was an adorable dip which I was so excited for. They've made it up to us on the tail end of things and were quite apologetic. But I can never look at cake photos and be happy with them which stinks. We'll just keep those out of the photo book I suppose.

  • Our wedding cupcakes were nearly the star of the show!! From the free tasting to seeing the final cupcake tower, the entire process with Custom Cake Design was easy and super tasty. This was the second bakery we tasted (the first being a dry and too sweet disappointment) and we knew immediately this was the right place. The cake itself was incredibly moist and the frosting flavorful but not cloyingly sweet. We were able to do 100 cupcakes in five different flavors (peanut butter cup, salted caramel, mint chocolate chip, wild strawberry, and red velvet) as well as a small cutting cake, and they were super flexible with us changing up small details and flavor combinations. The final product was even more beautiful and yummy than we could have imagined and delivery and setup was seamless. Our guests raved about all the flavors and we were lucky to have a couple extra to enjoy post wedding. The cutting cake was divine and we look forward to having more in a year!! Thank you Raquel and the... Read more
