  • 2020 wedding planning was not the easiest for brides or vendors. Before the world went into turmoil, we met with Alexis from the Novel Baker, to pick out our cake flavors for a wedding that was almost two years away. We learned that with our specific venue choice, vendors treated us like we were royalty. Our initial venue choice for the reception had a very exclusive list of vendors. Once shut downs started to happen, I kept all my vendors in the loop the best I could. Some said I was the most informative bride they’d ever had, but things were changing daily! With that said, I kept Alexis in the loop. Long story short(er), I didn’t feel the same love and joy when I informed her of our final decision was to sadly cancel our initial venue and go with a venue 30 minutes from our originally one, due to the outdoor capacity availability. I felt the frustration on her end and was told that they would “try and make it” for set up a half hour before guests started to arrive. Sh... Read more

    So sorry that you did not enjoy your experience with our bakery. I think there are a few discrepancies in your review though. Just so we are on the same page, I wanted to take a minute to re-explain some items you may have misunderstood. Since you moved your venue 30 minutes further, we knew our delivery staff would not arrive until 30 minutes before your start time and asked if you still wanted us to proceed with the order. We next addressed the flower placement which could not be completed before your reception started because of the extra distance you added to the delivery route. Hence, our frustration of "trying to make something work" that was logistically impossible due to your rescheduling. The total charge for delivery was $75 as indicated on your invoice not an extra additional charge of $75. I was surprised that out of the 4 available options for flower delivery you choose your mother as the courier on the day of your rehearsal dinner instead of (1) using one of our talented local florists (2) having us purchase florals on your behalf (3) selecting a sugar flower presentation or (4) having a family member deliver to us early in the week. Our staff thought she was delightful and that your florals were gorgeous--she was so proud to point out your favorite flower in the bouquet and we assured her it would be the focal point of our design. I contacted the venue about the cake and they stated that there were no issues with it. They also advised us that it is their policy to send the top tier home with the bride to be "frozen" as an anniversary cake. It's unfortunate that they did not discuss this policy with you when you scheduled with them. We still would love to gift you an anniversary cake as promised with your choice of flavor and adorned with fresh flowers. It is a custom of ours to provide all of our couples with a beautiful sweetheart cake as a "thank you" and is our way of celebrating their first anniversary with them because we want their wedding day and first anniversary to be extraordinary celebrations. It breaks my heart that it wasn't this way for you. I loved working with you and wish you all the sweetness that life has to offer.

  • We met with Alexa to taste her cakes for our wedding and absolutely loved every flavor she provided us with. She was incredibly helpful when choosing on a wedding cake flavor and cupcake flavors for our guests. She had many choices to choose from and we were blown away at all the combinations we could do! Our wedding cake was absolutely stunning and the cupcakes were a hit! All the guests enjoyed them and were impressed with her attention to detail on decorating. We cannot thank her enough for her hard work!

  • Alexis did an amazing job on our wedding cake. We even contacted her a month before the wedding and she pulled it together with no problem. We did an apple and a banana cake with the salted caramel icing...absolutely amazing! All of our guests loved the cake, no leftovers 😊 Our cake was gorgeous, put together with elegance and wonderful talent. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. We would definitely recommend Alexis and go to her for our future events.

    Thank you Dieanna! I LOVED creating this cake for you. All of the choices you made for your cake were just stunning. I especially enjoyed our cake tasting and how much the studio design was you! We are kindred spirits in that we adore pink. So honored that you selected me as your wedding cake baker! Wishing you a blissful married life--always surrounded by the prettiest shades of pink!

  • Alexis was a pleasure to work with. She went out of her way to accommodate a special design request and went through several design iterations until she perfected the design. The cake was beautiful on the day of the wedding, and she artistically placed the flowers that the floral designer brought which matched the centerpieces. Alexis's cakes are exceptional in flavor and texture, and we received numerous compliments from our guests about how good the cake tasted. Her cookies are great, too! We would definitely work with her again in a heartbeat.

    Wow! Thank you so much, Caroline! I loved working with you and Steve on your wedding cake design. It was such an amazing experience to create the intricate details of your design with you. I just adore the photo your photographer captured of the cake. It's just so fitting to the venue. Your wedding was absolutely enchanting based on all of your gorgeous selections and the fabulousness of your venue, Vault 634! I'm so thrilled you love the cookies, too!

  • I contacted Alexis to create a dessert table for a bridal shower I was hosting. She was quick to respond to all of my questions, and she made the ordering process way easier than I would have ever anticipated. The dessert table setup was provided by Alexis, and it was beautiful! The desserts I ordered included a focal cake, mini macarons, salted caramel chocolate chip cookies, mini chocolate pretzels, and mini chocolate dipped Oreos. Everything was so delicious! Alexis was so easy to work with and I look forward to working with her again!

  • Alexis is the best! We contacted her for a cake for our son’s Baptism and she invited us to her beautiful work space in Dublin for a tasting. There were so many options that were absolutely delicious! It was tough to choose and Alexis was so helpful in the decision process. She provided great ideas regarding style, colors, and complimentary flavors. She is very flexible with options and is willing to try anything. We were able to choose multiple flavors in our cake and cupcakes to satisfy all of our guests. She delivered the cake and cupcakes the day of and decorated a beautiful dessert table that was the focal point of the party. I highly recommend The Novel Baker for all your baking needs! We will use her again and again in the future! Thanks again Alexis!

  • We had a FANTASTIC experience with Alexis from The Novel Baker! I found her through some googling and I loved the aesthetic of her cakes and her website. Everything looked gorgeous. The most important thing to me, of course, was that our cake also tasted delicious, and when we went to taste Alexis' cakes at her (adorable) studio, it was no question that we would hire her. The cake, both at the tasting and at our wedding, was moist and rich with really tasty icing. It was also very flavorful, which our guests commented was not always the case with wedding cakes (we chose almond cake). In terms of design, I had tons of photos from Pinterest and I felt like Alexis really paid attention to what I wanted, helping me hone in on which details I liked best. She executed the cake decoration flawlessly on the day of. I was really bowled over when I saw it! I spent a lot of time looking at sites like Style Me Pretty and I can honestly say that my wedding cake turned out to be my favorite of all... Read more

Her passion for baking and creating art through her cakes shined through. She helped us create the most beautiful cake that tastes like heaven on a fork, while also helping us to keep within our budget.

    Christina, I just loved working with you! What a joy it was to taste cakes with you and design your wedding cake. I loved your venue and had so much fun styling your cake with flowers on-site, making sure that it was exactly what you were dreaming of. Your venue with all of its chic and country charm took my breath away, especially the flowers you selected. I adored working with your mom and hope that we get to work on another cake adventure soon!

  • This company is amazing, Alexis has a lot of talents in her cake decorating ,i was probably the only bride who got to see the bakery vendor set up the cake, she was in and out but simply took her time with the placement of each flower and the layout was phenomenal everyone could smell the fresh flowers and greens so fresh !! as for taste the cake was so good we had an almond cake with almond merengue buttercream, tasted just as good as it sounds tbh, my husbdand and i ate a piece of the anniversary cake before we froze it because it was too good to freeze the whole tier right away lol thank you so much Alexis we appreciate your work and your time ❤️

    Jill--It was such a treat to see my bride and groom in person and set-up the cake with you right there! It is an experience I will cherish always! Your room style was so incredible and I was just so thrilled to let your styling flow from the cake, onto the table and around the room. The almond flavor profile was such a great selection so hats-off to you on that amazing choice. You were a delight to work with and I am so honored and thrilled that you selected The Novel Baker to create your confectionary display and make your wedding cake dream come true!

  • We ended up having to make several changes to our order due to Covid-19 and Alexis was incredibly accommodating and created a beautiful cake to help make our small ceremony feel extra special. She was a little bit slow to respond at times, but always got back to us and everything worked out great. She also provided us with a great tasting selection and allowed us to make each tier a different combination of flavors and icing. It was a truly delicious cake.

    Thank you, Sarah! Loved working with you and so glad that you enjoyed the design and taste of the cake. You were so patient with the delays due to the letting go of my staff to keep them safe during the mitigation. I appreciate how kind you were through this entire process and am so thrilled that together we were able to make everything work out. Wishing you a fairytale happily-ever-after!

  • I attended a Baby Shower that had a Sweet Table done by "The Novelty Baker." It was so pretty and the confections were so delicious that I contacted Alexis and requested that she do something similar for my daughter's Bridal Shower. Alexis was so professional and accommodating and created the most beautiful Sweet Table that everyone loved. The price was more than reasonable and Alexis arrived promptly and set it up and returned to pick up the decorations that she used for the table. I would definitely recommend to anyone having a special event. You will be happy with the results. Thank you to Alexis and your team!!!

    Thank you for your kind words! I do love bridal showers and love creating sweet tables because they just add so much drama to the display. I'm so pleased that you and your guests enjoyed it so! And, I hope that we can work together soon!
