  • I can't say enough wonderful things about Erica's work. Not only is her work flawless, but it tastes great too! We met with 3 cake decorators before her and she was on completely different level. Her designs are contemporary and fresh. We were completely stunned when we saw the final cake, it was more than we could imagine. I would recommend her a hundred times over.

  • Our wedding cake not only tasted amazing, but it was also gorgeous. Erica sat with us in her shop the month before our wedding for over an hour as we decided which flavors we liked best (they were all fresh and delicious - you cannot go wrong!) and what our cake should look like. She talked us through numerous options and came up with a sketch that was unlike anything we had considered before. It was creative and fun and fit the style of our wedding just perfectly. Erica's execution the day of the wedding was flawless as the cake looked and tasted wonderful!

  • Erica did a phenomenal job on our wedding cake! I cannot recommend her enough. Erica is extremely talented, which resulted in a cake that not only looked incredible, but tasted as amazing as it looked. We received so many compliments on our cake the day of our wedding and when we saw the cake for ourselves, we were blown away. I am so happy that we chose her to make our cake for our special day and I cannot wait to have some of the top layer on our one year anniversary!

  • Erica O'Brien cake Design made the cake for our September 6th wedding at the Hopkins Vineyard in Warren, Connecticut. After scouring the internet for ideas and vendors, I found Erica. What immediately attracted me to this company was their awesome design skills, and also that they make their cakes with high quality ingredients - real butter and sugar, nothing artificial. What's the point of a cake if it doesn't taste delicious?! We met with Erica's assistant, Callan, for our tasting and to hash out our design. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted, and Callan totally got it. As expected, the cake was fantastically yummy, and we ended up choosing almond cake with chocolate cream cheese butter-cream. The design was a three tier cake, white and soft gold, with natural looking sugar flowers in white, fuschia and pink. Throughout the whole process, Erica was quick to respond to emails , and on the day, the cake was delivered on time and in perfect condition. And I can't even begin to ... Read more

  • Erica is wonderful and our cake was perfect. Her cake not only looked stunning (and exactly what we had talked about) but it tasted amazing. She uses the most fresh and delicious ingredients and everyone said it was actually YUMMY wedding cake, and not just for show. We had chocolate cake with salted caramel buttercream which was a big hit, and also banana cake with cinnamon buttercream which people said was unusually delicious! We had a wonderful experience tasting with Erica, who was super flexible and creative and responsive. We couldn't be happier choosing Erica for our special day and would recommend her to other couples looking for something both elegant and delicious! A great value, and a perfect cake.

  • Erica is wonderful and a true artist. Not only are her cakes beautiful, but they taste delicious! The cake she made for our wedding was exactly what I was envisioning. It was simple and feminine and couldn't have been more perfect. She got the colors just right and the sugar flowers were sweet and beautiful looking. I look forward to ordering from her in the future!! Lucky for me her shop isn't too far away!!!

  • Erica was absolutely wonderful, and I can't recommend her work enough! Her cakes are both beautiful to look at and delicious! She did both our wedding cake and a surprise groom's cake for my husband, and they came out better than we could have hoped. She was very flexible with our flavor combinations, took care to match the colors we were hoping to have for our flowers and succulents, and was great at communicating through the entire process. She did an amazing Mets-themed groom's cake for my husband, which was the talk of the rehearsal dinner, and she even made a custom buttercream flavor for us when I mentioned that it was his favorite flavor. Everyone kept complimenting us both on the look of the cakes and how delicious they tasted. She prides herself on using real ingredients, and it really shows. She's an artist and a talented baker, and I can't think of anyone else I would have wanted to do the cakes for us!

  • Erica's execution of my wedding cake was flawless. My guests walked into the reception's dim room lit by lantern light and their eyes still flew to the cake. I heard 'oohs' and 'ahhs' for the next 20 minutes as they filed in. The quality of the cake and icing was even better than the taste test. And I loved the fondant! Equally important, she listened to my ideas of having a subtle victorian-industrial design and embraced the challenge. The result was an elegant production of my husband and my personalities, and I couldn't have been more proud of it. Thank you Erica!!

  • Erica was a pleasure to work with. She was the first and only cake vendor we met with. Her cakes are amazing and she is beyond talented. Our wedding cake and the groom's cake she made for us were more than what we excpted. We went with layers of chocolate chip and chocolate cake both with vanilla bean fillings. My husband's cake was an exact replica of his FDNY fire helemt and it looked exactly like the picture I had shown her. All our guests raved about how delicous and fresh the cake was. I would highly suggest doing a tasting with Erica if you are in the process of looking for a wedding cake. I am so happy that we used her!

  • Erica truly blew us away with her cake. My fiance and I had a vision of what we wanted the cake to look like. We showed her samples and colors and she ran with it. The cake was better than we had imagined, and all our guests were amazed by the detail. People told us it was the most beautiful and most original cake they had ever seen, and it tasted wonderful! I would love to use Erica's services again. Maybe in the future for our baby shower!
