Traditionally, people can’t stop talking about the bride and her beautiful wedding gown on that special day. But if you have Cake Studio create the wedding cake, the bride runs the risk of being upstaged. These wedding cake designs are elegant and stunning, almost a shame to cut into if they weren’t also incredibly delicious. Cake Studio holds cake consultations (not just for wedding events) to determine your needs, desires and budget. It limits how many events it does in a day so every cake is made with care. The more advanced notice, the better.

For those of you brides-to-be who want to stray slightly off the beaten wedding cake path, Surprise Surprise Bake Shop might be the way to go. It takes the traditional wedding cake and transforms it into cake balls. Each cake ball is perfectly and individually crafted and designed for what is called the ‘Wedding Pop Tower.’ And unlike traditional wedding cakes where it’s usually one flavor, you can mix and match your pops with flavors like toasted coconut, rocky road, chocolate peanut butter, red velvet, snickerdoodle, lemon and quite a few more including cheesecake.
