  • My husband and I considered Dessert Works and one other well-known Boston area bakery for our wedding cake. We ended up going with Dessert Works because of their professionalism, quality, and price. We met with Sara, the wedding cake coordinator, for our tasting. She was very organized and had helped us figure out what type of design would be best for our style and budget. The taste and quality of the cake was incredible! We ended up choosing the dulce de leche flavor for our entire wedding cake. It was sweet, creamy and different than your standard wedding cake. On the big day, we were pleased to see how beautiful our cake turned out! We received lots of compliments from our guests on both the appearance and taste of the cake (one guest admitted to having 3 slices!). One of the other things that I personally liked about Dessert Works is that instead of saving the top tier of cake, they give you a mini-replica of your cake (they call it a honeymoon cake, I think). It comes in a clea... Read more

  • Dessert Works was the first cake place that we looked at for our wedding and we immediately knew that we had to get our cake from them! They provided us with multiple samples of cake and although it was a hard choice, we settled on the red velvet. On the day of the wedding, I was so nervous, I barely ate, but I made sure to eat all of my piece of cake. It was scrumptious! All of my guests commented on how they have never tasted a wedding cake that moist and delicious before. I would highly recommend Dessert Works!

  • This was the second wedding cake place we "interviewed," and the difference was incredible. Dessert Works is THE BEST: beautiful cakes that are really delicious, and it's extremely easy to work with them. Here's the difference: Cake place #1 (high end place in Brookline) we were seated in a dirty little area with a million different old albums of cakes. The head baker came over and took notes after asking me questions like "give me three adjectives to describe your wedding." And then she send us home with 4 tiny slivers of very mediocre cake. It was all kind of talk, talk, talk and no specifics--very weird and baffling. Dessert Works: Immaculate space with a wedding specialist to help you. First you taste four large and delicious pieces of cake, and then you talk about cakes. Everything about the cakes and their pricing is quickly and efficiently broken down for you, and the end result is just wonderful. You have to drive a little to get to the bakery (about 30 min from Cam... Read more

  • Sara at Dessert Works is amazing! She helped us through the whole process of choosing our flavors, our design, and working out all the final details. She is SUPER quick to respond to emails and was great about making sure we stuck to our budget. My husband and I were unsure if we were even going to have a wedding cake because of the cost, but after tasting their cake and working with Sara, we were convinced. The best part is that the cake not only looked wonderful, it TASTED fantastic!

    Thank you so much for your kind review, Julia! It was my pleasure to help you create a wedding cake you loved and could afford, and I am so happy you were pleased with the final product. Wishing you and Devin all the best things that married life brings! ~Sara

  • Sara and the Dessert Works team were a pleasure to work with. Not only was our cake tasting delicious, but stress free and made very easy with all of the options that were given to us. Our wedding cake was original, delicious and creatively decorated. Dessert Works listened to what we wanted and made our vision come true. Our day was that much more speicial knowing that we had a fantastic wedding cake made with love. I look forward to hosting parties JUST so I can serve Dessert Works pastries:-)

  • Amazing! Our wedding cake was unbelievable...They were very afordable, professional, creative, and the cake was delicious! They don't use fondant which is great because that makes cakes taste disgusting...They use buttercream frosting, which is to die for. We chose the chocolate raspberry four tier cake ~ My family is still commenting on how amazing the cake was, both inside and out :)

  • Yum yum yum is all I have to say. We choose the chocolate cake and lemon summer berry. Both were amazing. The cake was identical to the picture that I provided them, color and everything.

  • Dessert Works worked with me and my husband with our small bugdet for a wedding cake. We even were able to order a custom cake of my dreams. The quality of the cake and service is wonderful. They are very good at what they do. And if i lived in the area i would use them again and again.

  • Yum is all I can say. It was the best cake ever. The cake was part of our wedding package, so we had to choose among their standard designs, but there were enough interesting ones to choose from, and the cake was beautiful and delicious. We continue to visit their bakery when we need a cake for a special occasion, even though it's a bit of a drive for us.

    Thank you for your review, Pauline, and for your continued business! It is greatly appreciated! We hope you and Scott are enjoying married life! Sara

  • Dessert Works made 9 cakes for our October wedding, each cake was the centerpiece of all of the dining tables and one classic wedding cake. They were a little higher priced then the other bakeries we looked at although it was well worth it because you could tell the quality of the product and really what difference does $50 or $100 dollars make in the scheme of things. They were great to work with and I could not have asked for more overall. Great customer service. If you are looking to find them in the future I was told that they are relocating to Westwood.

    Thank you for your review, Saudi! We are glad that you were so happy with your cake centerpieces! We are relocating just down the road to Lambert's Plaza in Westwood in January of 2011. You will still find us in our current location in Norwood until December 31st however. Please visit our website www.dessertworks.net for more details on our move.

  • We visited Dessert Works for our wedding cake based solely on the fact that the Phantom Gourmet approves of them. And with good reason! We taste-tested three flavors of cake and chose two: Boston cream pie and dolce de leche. They were AMAZING. We described what we wanted it to look like, and they went above and beyond. Cascading fall leaves, beautiful ivy scrollwork and chocolate ribbons. It was GORGEOUS. Plus, it tasted like heaven. We're still getting comments from people that it was the best wedding cake they've ever tasted. We found the cost reasonable as well, around $400 for 70 people.

    Thanks for your review, Jessica! We're glad you were pleased with the cake, even if you didn't get to eat much of it! You'll just have to order a cake in the Day & Night flavor for your next special occasion so that you can enjoy it! Wishing you and Mike all the best! Sara

  • Dessert Works was very easy to work with, and very accommodating. I had a specific design that I had created that I gave to them and the execution and the final product came out absolutely amazing. It was exactly what I asked for. The two different flavors of the cake were amazing. Everyone at our wedding asked where we got our cake from. We ended up spending more than we wanted to spend on the cake, and looking back on it now, we don't regret spending the extra money on the amazing cake we received.

    Thank you for your review, Mary! We are so happy that you enjoyed the flavors and finished design of your cake! Wishing you and Josh nothing but the best! ~Sara
