Posted by Ross11 on 04/30/2009 My husband and I used Victoria Moore for our wedding cake and wedding favors on 4/11/09! Our wedding cake was everything we hoped it would be and more! Victoria and her staff went above and beyond to make everything perfect from the tasting to the actual wedding day. We got so many compliments on how beautiful our wedding cake was! We also had her make cookies for our favors and they were such a big hit, people were stealing them and putting them in their pockets and purses by the end of the night. We also had a birthday brunch the following day and had Victoria make a birthday cake which was just as fabulous as everything else! From here on out, when in need of a cake, I would never go to any other company then Cakes By Victoria! Try it....you won't ever go anywhere else for a cake! :)
The 2 most important things were correct - ready for pick up and perfectly baked (slightly gooey) cookie cake. Happy for the most part... but.... I double checked my order online, which said "Happy Birthday". "Light on icing and mostly white". The cookie said "BIRTHDAY BOY, YOU ROCK". Cake is for a female, and no where did we request that text or the giant guitar (light on the icing). They swore this was the correct cake. It is kind of funny, but usually, you want your message to be correct. We called 6 times with no answer over 2 days to order the cookie, and settled with online ordering. I suggest going in to order.
This is probably more of a 3 star place, but I'll give them a 4th star for consistency, which is so rare at bakeries usually. We've been here at least 10 times and afterwards I always have the same takeaway: it's good enough that I'll go back when convenient, but it's not the best ever. We are usually very happy with the plain flavors like chocolate with vanilla frosting. Those tend to be an excellent execution of a basic item. Some of the more adventurous flavors aren't that successful. And the fruit flavors, like the raspberry, taste too strongly of fake flavoring. I'd definitely recommend skipping that one!
Wow. We bought a dozen assorted cupcakes. There were no bad choices! We bought the box as we were having out of town family staying with us over the weekend. They were all delicious and everyone got a favorite flavor. We were told that since they were fresh we didn't need to refrigerate the cupcakes since we would be eating them within a couple of days & we were keeping them indoors in a cool environment (NC Mountains). The cupcakes stayed moist and delicious. We did keep them in the box they came in, so they were protected - we don't have any cats or large dogs to mess with it :-)
Posted by Helen51 on 08/25/2008 I asked Victoria to make a pansy cake for a friend's 60th birthday. After telling her what I had in mind, she made some suggestions for some finishing touches to add to the cake. It turned out beautiful! It was totally unique and definitely one of a kind. She has a lot of artisitc ability and like any artist, is not satisfied with anything less than her best. The cake was delicous and very moist and people were coming back for a second slice. I am already planning the next cake I want her to make. Try her out. You will not be disappointed!
Posted by territed on 09/13/2008 Victoria's cakes are fantastic! They are gorgeous, decorated with such creativity and attention to detail. But they are not just beautiful to look at. They are fresh and moist and delicious, with a wide variety of fillings and flavors to choose from. Even those at the party who normally don't care for cake went back for seconds! Victoria is a joy to work with, she offers suggestions and comes up with ideas for every occasion. You and your guests will not be disappointed with anything that comes from Cakes by Victoria.
Great bakery. Loved the cake! We got "The Gift" cake and it was gorgeous, but it was also delicious and everyone thought it was the best. We were so happy with it. We got chocolate with chocolate mousse filing and then the icing like in the picture and couldn't have been happier. They are awesome and make awesome cakes. We will definitely use them again for any event when we need baked goods. And they were so easy to work with and helped us through the process so much.
Unbelievably Good! Cakes for my children were custom designed, the one for my son had monster trucks and a princess cake for my daughter. I couldn't have found a cake as perfect looking and delicious as these in the grocery store. The prices were very affordable. The gourmet desserts are awesome, love the pretzels dipped in chocolate, and the cupcakes for our halloween party. The owner is a perfectionist and easy to work with.
We got married on the beach and Katie came up with the design herself, the details were awesome, the cake was delicious and it just brought everything together, and it travelled well from Charlotte to Surfside Beach, SC in pieces and she assembled it once there. I would highly recommend her for any occasion, I've seen other cakes she's done and she knows what she's doing and takes care and pride in her work:) Teresia Blackwell
