  • My husband and I had tried 3 different bakeries for our wedding cake and Heidelberg by far was the best! Wedding cake can sometimes be dry but it was delicious on the day of our wedding. All of our guests loved the cake and wanted seconds!

  • I'm not sure what more I can say that the other reviewers hadn't already said. But the cake, presentation and everything was absolutely awesome. One thing I loved was that they were super flexible and we were supremely late in choosing our cake (3 weeks before the wedding!) and you would have thought we chose this a year ahead of time given the intricacies! The owner and the folks who work there were super nice and very amazing. This is, without a doubt, a "hidden" gem of this area. It was delicious that many people asked for seconds for the cake at the wedding!!!!!!! And they were the proper type! That says a lot! Highly recommend!

  • First of all this is the "ma and pa" bakery that every great town/city needs. They are well-known and it's always a busy location. Our tasting was delicious. Everything we could have asked for. Our cake was part of our hotel venue's package, but we couldn't have found a better place! When giving them a picture they did exactly what we asked. Our end wedding cake was to die for and everyone commented on how great it was. This company just got a customer for life!! :)

  • Our cake was part of our venue package and their suggested pastry shop was Heidelberg. We scheduled our tasting and encounter a very busy, but friend shop. We absolutely enjoyed the tasting and the friendly staff. They have a very wide variety of cakes, but are also open to suggestions. The one thing I do have to say is that their cake portfolio is very outdated. We printed styles of cakes that we like and brought them in for them to see and tell us if they could do the design. At the end the flavor our cake (marble poundcake drizzle with Amaretto filled with a hazelnut mouse and cover with marzipan) was phenomenal and lets not forget the beautiful design of our cake which excited our expectations. If you do use this shop do not hesitate to bring your own cake design photos. We did exactly that and they met our expectations by designing the cake the exact way as the picture.

  • We loved working with Heidelberg! The cake tasting experience was really lovely! Not only did the accommodate four of us for a tasting but the presentation was beautiful! They were extremely accommodating and provided us with many flavors to try. The cake turned out BEAUTIFUL and was delicious (even after having been frozen). I can't speak towards the value because it was part of our caterer package but overall it was a great experience.

  • The Heidelberg Bakery has been the only bakery my family has used for birthdays and special events for years!! When my daughter announced her engagement, there was no question who would make the wedding cake -- the Heidelberg!!! Their cakes are delicious and always look spectacular!! The wedding cake was beautiful and exactly what my daughter wanted. They also baked and brought the challah for the event and it was terrific, too!! I would recommend them to anyone!

  • We loved our cake from the Heidelberg Pastry Shoppe. Our tasting was very laid back and they offered us tea and coffee as we sat in their lounge area. The tastings were also very generous and we were able to take some home. We went with the Almond Pound Cake with Raspberry filling. Our guests raved about how good the cake was. We live in the Arlington area so it was nice to support a local business and we look forward to visiting the Heidelberg for years to come.

  • Delicious cake, reasonably prices (especially compared to other bakeries in the DC area), and it was a beautiful cake in person and in my photos! The cake tasting was great as well, and they were very flexible in meeting our requests.

  • My family has been going to Heidelberg Pastry Shoppe ever since I was born. This place is amazing and my wife and I knew we had to get our wedding cakes from here. They did a wonderful job. We ordered Mocha and Kase Sahne cakes for our wedding. Both were perfect! Couldn't ask for more delicious cakes for our wedding. Thank you, Heidelberg!

  • Our wedding cake was delicious!!! Multiple guests commented on it. It was a simple cake (2 tier) almond flavored cake and lemon flavored cake with raspberry and strawberry filling (this is their base level). I also love the traditional bakery setting- very much like a NY bakery.

  • Heidelberg was awesome!!! We really wanted cupcakes for our wedding instead of a traditional wedding cake and we looked all around for delicious but affordable cupcakes. They brought us in for a tasting and their cupcakes were delicious! It was not even a question when we compared the other places we went to. They were great to work with also. They were VERY responsive to our many emails and questions which as comforting since we were planning this wedding from Philadelphia! We, unfortunately, had to postpone our wedding due to a family emergency and Heidelberg let us move our deposit to our new date even through it took us 8 months to come up with a new date. What a great company to do business with. Everyone at the wedding told us how delicious the cupcakes were! Thanks Heidelberg!!

  • This was one of the cake vendors that was preferred by our venue (Fort Myer) and we loved everything about our cake! We went for a tasting and loved all the combinations, but chose the vanilla cake, raspberry filling and buttercream frosting. They made the cake a square shape for us, which we loved, and it was 4 tiers. They even matched the icing piping to my bridesmaids' dresses (emerald green) and let me bring a matching ribbon to place on the bottom. They arrived early for the wedding, provided a box to bring home the top layer, and everyone at the wedding said it was a 10!

  • The cake was beautiful; however, too much icing. It made the cake larger, but when we cut the cake we discovered 2 inches of icing before we got to the cake. The cake itself was good. I've done business with Heidelberg for years and love their items. Would use them again noting that icing needs to be less with more cake. :-)

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you for your comments. We try hard to keep the icing to cake ratio in proportion. Certain cake designs that are currently popular, such as the ruffled edge cakes, do require much more icing than we normally apply on cakes. We look forward to serving you again!

  • I can't say enough about Heidelberg Pastry Shoppe's wedding cakes! I have been a big fan of Heidelberg long before planning my wedding - I'd go there for their great apple struedel and other tasty baked goods. When it came to our wedding cake, I first went to a specialty wedding cake baker who made visually beautiful creations - for a big price - but we didn't like the taste of their cakes (so expensive, and yet not so tasty). So we checked out Heidelberg's wedding cakes, and we are so happy we did! Their cake designs, which you can peruse online or in the store, tend toward the traditional. But if you have a simple cake design alternative, they are open to that also. I went with one of their very simple designs, and added some greenery and was thrilled with the results. As for taste, they can't be beat. I had 3 tiers, each with different flavoring, some with liquor also. All 3 were winners! And the price was excellent too.
