  • Now I know where they get their unique name. The cake was not only clever and creative, but it tasted terrific! They make one delicious German Chocolate cake - Crab Basket Cake! I must say the cake inside was such a pleasant surprise with the blue crabs, news print, spices and mallets. So cute. A big HIT! I will definitely be using the Yum Yum Shop again. Top notch!

  • I usually don't take the time to fill out feedback forms, but the Yum Yum Shop did such an outstanding job on my wedding cake that I felt the need to do so. My cake was breathtaking and the Mint Chocolate flavoring was out of this world! At the tasting, I mentioned that my grandmother could not have cake due to the eggs. Kathy SURPRISED me with a small eggless cake for my grandmother to have at the wedding. I was so touched. Her shop definitely exceeded my expectations!

  • Kathy -- I know I sent you a thank you card - but I want everyone to know how AWESOME you are. THANKS so much for creating the wedding cake of our dreams! It was so delicious and all of our guest loved it and are still talking about it months later! I don't think we will be able to wait an entire year to eat the top layer -- it was that good. We will most likely take you up on your offer to get an additional anniversary cake : ) The submarine cookies were a huge hit as well! Everything was wonderful Thank you again for helping our day that much more special. You were an absolute doll to work with!

  • Ordered a groom's cake from this vendor. The theme was a dual-sided football helmet with a Ravens logo on one side and my college logo on the other. The college logo was on backwards, and the cake wasn't big enough to serve 20 people, despite the $400 price tag. The "face mask" was wire that looked like it was hap-hazardly thrown together at the last minute. Not impressed.

  • I really enjoyed working with Kathy. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable at our tasting. We had a lot of fun trying her cakes and chatting about ideas. She was very patient with us as we decided between square and round and the different flavors. The first time I saw the cake at the reception I squeeled and yelled at my husband to look at it. It was perfect! I had made last minute decorating decisions and Kathy took care of everything. Everyone raved about it at the reception and we are still enjoying whats in the fridge. The cake was so moist and the icing is the best I've ever had. What some people have said about them being hard to get in touch with is only partially true. There were a few times that I didn't hear back right away, but never for more than a few days. Yum Yum is the best value you'll find, and they are always running specials, so be sure to ask or check the website.

  • I loved the cake, and Mary was really nice. It tasted great, looked great, and was a good value. I had one minor problem- the week before the wedding, we were trying to confirm everything, and I could never get ahold of anyone in the shop. When we did- they couldn't find our order right away, and there were a few tense hours. Finally, they found the order, and while they were very apologetic, I didn't really need to be terrified I wouldn't have cake for my wedding.

  • It was improtant to use to have different flavored cake. We wanted a chocolate groom's cake, and they were able to make it. We showed up at our receptions with no worries becuase our cakes looked amazing!

  • Even though I got more compliments on our delicious cake than anything else about the wedding, I cannot give the Yum Yum Shop an excellent review. There was absolutely NO communication with this vendor. I was worried two weeks before my wedding that I'd have to get a new cake since I hadn't heard from her. The cake was absolutely delicious (we just ate some after coming back from the honeymoon) and the flavors were unbelievable. The cake looked and tasted stunning but I am still unhappy with the lack of communication and the excuse I got from Kathy when she finally called us back. Her prices are fair for the area.

  • We had to attend 3 tastings to finally sample the particular cake we were interested in and specifically communicated well in advance. Communication is a major downfall with this vendor, imagine my nightmare on my wedding day when I still had no confirmation of the arrival time of my cake! My wedding was on a Saturday and I had been calling (several times per day) since the Wednesday before the big day and had sent an email as well. It was literally so bad that my family went out an hour before the reception and bought a fake wedding cake and a bunch of sheet cakes. At 5:10 (20 mins before ceremony) we finally heard that they were running late due to van problems - surely they could have returned a call sooner! Additionally, I was told that the extra sheet cake that I ordered due to an increased headcount at my reception was "inedible because it was so dry". I chose this vendor based on their offering of cheesecake - which was fabulous; not worth the added stress on our wedding d... Read more

  • We went to several different cake shops and were disheartened with the cake quality, design, and service for the price. Then we found the Yum Yum Shop! It is owned and run by an older (not THAT old) lady and her daughter who basically built herself a full-out bakery in her back yard, it may seem odd at first, but once you step inside you won't even think about it. She has been able to pull off that rare and wonderful ability to be both professionable and personable. She had a wide variety of flavors and designs that we were very impressed with. Even at the tasting, we were more than impressed with the quality of her cakes - way better than any of the others we tried! On the day of, I have to say it was by far the best wedding cake I ever had! We are still digging in to the leftovers almost a week later and it remains moist and fluffy and generally delicious! We could not have been happier!

  • My cake was goreous. I explain what I wanted and picked two flavors then left it up to her and the look was amazing. she even did the grooms cake which was fabulous redskins cake which my husband loved. She was easy to work with and it was one of the best tasting and beautiful cakes I had seen in a long time.

  • The Yum Yum Shop was exactly as their name descibes. Delicious. The guests (mostly the women, guys don't notice this stuff) raved about the wedding cake. It was soft, moist, and not too sweet. It was pricey ... but for what they delivered quality wise, the price and quality were both deserved. Their staff was pleasant, although it did seem that they were very busy, very popular, and we felt our calls and appointment, while timely, were not their highest priority at tiimes ... I concluded this was due to their popularity and success. Would use them again. Just order a bigger cake! It, along with the dj we hired (see separate review) were the talk of the party!

  • My experience with the Yum Yum Shop was very pleasant. My cake was exactly what I wanted. My guests were all commenting on the moistness and creativity of the design. Several of my girlfriends plan to use Kathy now. I did some shopping around and found the Yum Yum Shop to be the most cost effective, but also the most flexible and personable.

  • I was so excited about the original idea Kathy had for our waterfall cake. The execution however was really bad. It looked really tacky, which she said she wouldn't do it if it started looking tacky.It wasn't sitting on the water the way we discussed either. The cake was my biggest disappointment at the wedding because all of kathy's sample cakes looked so good and I really expected it to look better. It tasted really good though so I guess that was good?:( If you use them just make sure she draws a picture because I think the vendors forget the discussions you have and just go from their notes at the time of service!
