Our wedding cake was stunning. It was the perfect addition to our big day. We had a great experience from the tasting onward and this was my husband's favorite part of wedding planning. At our tasting, everything was amazing but we ended up going with a four tiered cake with half vanilla buttenrcake with passion fruit curd filling (SO DELICIOUS!) and the other half Chocolate devil's food cake with raspberry buttercream filling. This was a hard choice out of all the different cakes and fillings. We also did not like the fondant at other places we tried but we were able to taste a piece of their fondant at the tasting and it was delicious. Our cake had encrusted flowers that fell over the top of the cake and the bottom layer was a tight ruffled design with edible pearls and non-edible rhinestones. It turned out wonderful.
A few months before the wedding I contacted them about making a black labrador (our dog) grooms cake as I saw such amazing work in their 3D cakes. They sent me a quote but it was a little out of my price range. I had to make the hard decision of not ordering it. Vanessa tried to work with my budget and find other options for me which was amazing. I ultimately didn't want to purchase one if it wasn't one of the 3D cakes I saw because these were so remarkable. I think due to the hard work that would go into the 3D cake the price was appropriate but I just couldn't justify spending much more on just our cake. I was very impressed with their customer service and helping us to stay within our price range. When we visited their cake shop for the tasting we saw that they put a small figurine of someone's dog on a cake and we had asked them to do this for us then anyway. Even though I didn't want to spring for the groom's cake, we already had our beloved black lab with us on the actual wedding cake! It was adorable. The figurine had a glittery shoe in his mouth.
Amy Beck cake design was wonderful to work with and the cake was absolutely delicious. It was also beautiful in all our pictures. We had our florist add a few pink peonies for the topper which gave it a pop of color. We almost had Amy Beck make sugar flowers for the top and these also would have been amazing as their sugar flowers in the cake shop looked like wonderful works of art.
Our venue saved the top of our cake and we have it in the freezer. We are considering eating it now (a little short of two months later) instead of in a year because we just want to taste our delicious cake again!
Working with Amy was one of my favorite parts of my wedding. She completely custom designed our cake by combining ideas from a million different inspiration photos and we could not be happier. Amy gets to know you as a couple so that she really knows your vibe/style before suggesting design ideas. She is available every step of the way to tweak her ideas, work on options to keep cost down, and sends you detailed plans with hand sketched mock-ups. During our tasting she whipped up a completely new type of cake filling on the spot at our request. We cant thank her enough!
Amy designed me the PERFECT cake for my wedding!!!!! And, it tasted as good as it looked!!!! Thanks again Amy for making me the perfect cake!!!!
Not only the best looking cake you'll ever see, also the best tasting! I used Amy Beck for my wedding. She made a custom wedding cake that was identical to my wedding dress, the detail was flawless!! Her and her staff also made a French bulldog cake for my husbands grooms cake, it was unbelievable how much the cake looked like our dog!! Our guests are still talking about how awesome the cakes were and how good they tasted. I can't say enough good things about Amy Beck and her staff!!
There are so many words to describe the amazing experience I had working with Amy—she is kind, thoughtful, relatable, and on top of everything else A COMPLETE MASTER OF HER CRAFT. During the planning process, Amy was easy to communicate with and completely understood my vision. Our tasting experience was intimate and exciting. It took place in her cake studio which is more like a showroom, with beautiful cakes adorning the windows.
When I walked into the reception and first saw our cake , I was floored—it was a true work of art with countless, beautiful sugar flowers. Our cake was absolutely STUNNING to look at and it was DELICIOUS. We received SO many compliments the entire evening, and for weeks beyond, about both the design and taste of our cake. Thank you so much for being part of our team and sharing in our special day with us, Amy!
