  • First, I cannot write this review without saying what an absolute pleasure Mary Ann is; she is such a nice person and really listens to everything you ask for when it comes to the look and taste of your cake. She was always accessible via email or telephone, and constantly kept us updated with the timeline to get information back to her and also sketches of what our cake would look like. Our wedding cake adventure with The Fancy Cake Box began with our cake tasting in Mary Ann's home. We had looked at some other cake vendors in the Lake Placid area where we got married, but their decorative skills paled in comparison AND they were very costly for what you got. We had what I liked to call a "woodland fairy tale" sort of wedding, with Adirondack-woodland charm. Naturally we wanted a birch cake. Now, I'm sure you've seen some "birch" cakes out there that are just white frosting with black lines...that is what other bakers do. Mary Ann is the real deal! Mary Anne crafts her cakes i...

Knowing the look you wanted, made my part easy...we created a cake dream come true for us both! Thank you for allowing me to play a role in your wedding celebration. May you and John be blessed with a life time of happiness, good health and prosperity. xoxo

  • Mary Ann created the perfect wedding cake for us, it was everything that we had asked for. It was five tier with a beautiful cascade of flowers running down it. Everyone raved about the taste and were astonished by how beautiful it was. I can honestly say that she is the best wedding cake baker in the area and that if you want a cake that will blow everyone away, you should go with her. She is very professional and will not disappoint you.

Creating with you and Jessie was wonderful as you described exactly how you wanted your wedding cake to look, and we did it; we made your cake dream come true! Thank you again for saying #yestothecake from the Fancy Cake Box. May you have a lifetime filled with many blessingsđź’–

  • Mary Ann created the most spectacular cake for my wedding. She was so easy to work with and she listened to my vision and brought it to life. Not only was the cake GORGEOUS, it was the most delicious cake I've ever tasted. It brought back flavors from my childhood and made the night even more special. My husband and I cannot wait for our one year anniversary so we can dig into that top tier that we froze! Mary Ann and her cakes are simply THE BEST.

    Katherine, thank you so much! Planning with you and your parents this past year, has been just pure joy. Having my cake bring back a childhood "flavor" memory, is a cake dream come true for us both! If I could give you a client rating, it would be 5 stars! May you and Roy be blessed with a life time filled with happiness, love and good health! xo

  • Mary Ann was wonderful to work with! Her cupcakes and cake were not only beautiful but most important, delicious! She has so many flavors to choose from. we loved them all; although we must say peanut butter was our favorite. She was attentive and was able to answer all our questions throughout the planning process. I would highly recommend the fancy cake box to future couples!

    Thank you so much Savannah; it was a pleasure to create with you and Tom! I must admit, you are the first couple to request so many different flavors; so glad the cupcakes were enjoyed by all. Wishing you a life time of happiness and good healthđź’–

  • Mary Ann is an artist! The cupcakes and cake she created for us were stunning and delicious! We had many guests tell us it was the BEST cake and cupcakes they have EVER HAD (and that was our feeling too)! Working will Mary Ann was stress free! She is professional, friendly and warm! If you want to defy your guests expectations, this is the baker to go with.

    Thank you so much Kristin! You were a joy to work with and I loved that you knew exactly what you wanted in design. I was so happy to create gum paste Lisianthis flowers for you; a flower I had never created before...so much fun to do! You and Nick are adorable together and I wish you a life time of happiness, good health and prosperity! XOXO

  • My family and I had the great privilege of having a unique cake designed by Mary Ann Whisher. The occasion was a Celebration of Life for family and friends to honor our beloved husband/father. She executed a most incredible design depicting various stages of his life.....an amazing artistic display. The cake was the highlight of the day and guests raved about the taste as well as the creativity. I give her my highest recommendation.

    Thank you so much Audrey! It was an honor and a privilage to create Steve's Celebration of Life cake. Many tears of joy and sorrow went into Steve's cake. We all are truly blessed to have had Steve in our lives and he is deeply missed! xoxo, Mary Ann

  • AMAZING! Mary Ann is the sweetest and you can tell she really loves what she does! Our wedding cake was exactly what I hoped for and MORE! It was delicious! We live in Colorado and I was so nervous finding someone to make us our cake without being able to do any cake tasting but Mary was generous enough to ship us cake samples so that we could still get the full effect of our wedding planning experience! I highly recommend The Fancy Cake Box!

    Allie thank you so much! I'm so glad you and Derek loved your wedding cake; as I thoroughly enjoyed creating it for you. You were such a pleasure to work with too! I hope we will be able to create together again. May you be blessed with a life time of good health, happiness and prosperity! xoxo

  • The Grooms cake Maryann made for my nephew was perfect in every detail. It was a big hit at the wedding as the guests could not believe the workmanship on the jet ski, Ryon and Bella. It was the most fantastic cake I had ever seen.

    responded with the following comments.

    Donna I really enjoyed the experience of creating Ryon's cake. Your imaginative mind made me think outside the box, and learn many lessons along the way. I can't tell you how much I love that! Challenge is always good for the body, mind and spirit! Please let me know when you'd like to create together again.

  • I can't say enough great things about The Fancy Cake Box and owner Mary Ann. Every cake she makes is a work of art and truly delicious. With her amazing buttercream and rich, moist cake, Mary Ann is hands down a Cake Boss. She invests hours of her time into dreaming up a cake, planning it out, and making sure every detail is perfect. Unfortunately for me (and perhaps fortunately for her), after eating The Fancy Cake Box's cakes/cupcakes, no other bakery can compare! If you want a beautiful, mouth-watering cake, The Fancy Cake Box is the place to call.

  • Maryann was excellent to work with! She was very professional and accommodating. You can tell how much time and energy she puts into each one of her cakes. Most of all you can see how much she enjoys making these masterpieces. She is truly very talented. We could not have asked for a more beautiful cake. We basically didn't have to worry about anything once it was in her hands. We cannot wait to dig into the top layer on our 1 year anniversary. Thanks so much Maryann!

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you Yee and Mike for asking me to create your beautiful wedding cake. Yee, your hand made red Origami flowers placed in between wonky birch bark cake tiers, proved to be quite striking! The cake just wouldn't have had the same effect without your craftsmanship. What a beautiful, symbolic way to bring two cultures together. Blessings to you both!

  • Mary Ann is an exceptional artist that also happens to create amazing cakes. Her mastery of cake art is only second to her baking skills which happen to be the most delightfully rich tasting cakes I have ever tasted. She’s amazing. I don’t know much about cakes, but I do know working with Mary Ann is something special. Thank you so much for the cake experience!
