Tiffany Santiago customer review

"I just wanted to take the time to send you an email thanking you for the time and effort you put into making my husband and my party spectacular. The cupcakes were a hit with the guests. They were absolutely delicious and everyone could not get over the presentation. You guys are absolutely wonderful and I will continue to frequent your bakery. You went above and beyond what was expect and for that I am truly grateful!"

Wanda Emery customer review

"Just a note to let you know we all loved the beach theme cake we picked up Monday morning. It was the freshest and best cake we ever tasted! The chocolate starfish were delicious. Please let the designer know it was also the most beautiful cake we've ever seen ... we all took pictures. Many thanks for making Jeanie's birthday very special. It must be great to have a job that makes people happy."  

Jennifer Schwartz (Zepp) customer review

"I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful wedding cake you provided for our wedding day on Saturday. Not only was it beautiful, it was absolutely delicious. Thank you again for all your help and patience."

Nancy Melasecca customer review

"Just a little note to say thank you for all the delicious desserts for our son's rehearsal dinner. We had a great time and we really appreciate the delivery to the restaurant on time. We also had the cupcakes for the engagement party and they were a great hit! The adults loved them more than the kids. Thanks for all your time with me. I hope to use you again real soon!"  

Stephanie & Sean Wright customer review

"Sean and I wanted to thank you for the beautiful cake. We've gotten so many compliments, from its appearance to the taste. Thanks again."

Amy & Dave Kohl customer review

"Thank you very much for the beautiful wedding cake. It looked exactly like the photo we provided! The snowflakes were perfect for our February wedding, and every guest raved about how delicious it was. Unfortunately, we never had time to enjoy a piece, but we can't wait to open the top next year. We'll definitely recommend you to future brides!"

Carrie Bluestein customer review

"I just wanted you to know that the birthday cake I picked up on Saturday was to die for, and will now be the signature birthday cake for my family. My niece has already requested one for hers in August. I used to get my cakes from another vendor, but their quality is definitely not the same as it used to be. Thanks!"  

Nancy Meany customer review

"I had to let you know that the cakes were not only beautiful, but delicious ... best cake ever, according to my son. Never had cake that tasted so fresh! I'm so glad I read the article in the News Journal that brought me to your bakery. Thanks for making my son's 21st birthday so special."

Cindy Starr customer review

"I wanted to thank you for the cake you made for my son's graduation. It was outstanding, and everyone just loved it. It was the hit of the party! Thank you so much, I couldn't have asked for a nicer cake. It was absolutely beautiful. We'll definitely call you again the next time we need a cake."

Chris Polizzi customer review

"I wanted to let you know how much everyone loved the two sheet cakes you made for our birthday celebrations here at work last week. We have cake at work fairly often, usually the same old lame and tasteless grocery store cake. For this celebration, we bought cakes that people would remember. You would have thought we gave out winning Power Ball tickets in each slice. Everyone raved! You did a fantastic job, as usual."

Peg & Bob Miller customer review

"I wanted to write you a special note to let you know how much we all enjoyed the delicious cake you made for our wedding reception. It was the best cake we have ever eaten. It helped make our day perfect. Thanks again!"  

Tina Nguyen customer review

"You baked a small 6-inch cake for me on Saturday (‘Happy Birthday Ryan’). I just wanted to let you know that it was one of the most delicious cake I have ever tasted -- and it's hard to please me! Everyone loved it, from the not-too-sweet icing to the chocolate mousse filling. You did an excellent job, and of course I went into work bragging about you. You will definitely hear from me in the future with more cake orders."

Laurie Jones customer review

"I just wanted to let you know that the cake for the baby shower was a huge success. It was beautifully decorated and tasted wonderful. I am not usually a fan of whipped cream frosting, but this was very good. My husband, who does not like sweets, ate the remaining two pieces and was looking for more. You will definitely be the first person I call the next time I need a cake."

David & Belinda Jackson customer review

"We want to thank you for the fabulous cake you made for our wedding. It was truly heavenly. As a matter of fact, you will have to bake us another top layer because the guest did not leave us a single crumb!"

The Capozzoli Family customer review

"Just a little note with a great big thank you for our wedding cake. It was not only beautiful, but it was also delicious. Everyone loved it and wanted to know who made the cake. Of course we said 'Kim'. The groom's cake was perfect. The whole day was perfect and we just wanted to send you a special thank you since you were part of the reason the day was so beautiful."

Allison & Anthony customer review

"Anthony and I just wanted to say thank you so much for making our wedding cake. It was absolutely beautiful, and looked better than I even imagined! And more importantly, it was delicious!! It was so good that our guests took home or ate most of it, leaving only a few pieces left by the end of the night! We're looking forward to being able to have more cake from you on our 1-year anniversary. It was so nice to work with you. We will absolutely be recommending you to any of our friends getting married!"

Tracey Stone customer review

"I want to thank you for the FABULOUS cake you did for my moms 75th surprise birthday party on 5/9. Everyone raved about how delicious it was!! It was beautifully decorated … it was nothing less than perfect!!"

Divya Balasubramanian customer review

"I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart for delivering a fresh and a delicious photo cake. I loved the way the cake looked, and I heard awesome reviews about how fresh and tasty it was! How I wished I could fly down to Delaware from India just to taste the mouth-watering cake! You helped me give my friend a beautiful surprise, which my friend obviously loved. I wish I could come down to the store to personally to thank you, but India is too far!"

Ellen Potter customer review

"Thank you so much for making Emily’s birthday cake. It was not only beautiful, but very tasty. As it turns out, Emily’s 2007 wedding was catered by Appleton, and the wedding cake was also made by you. Thank you again!"

Tina & Justin Coyle customer review

"Thank you so much for making my beautiful wedding cake! Everyone loved it. I know people will be talking about my wedding cake for years to come. Thanks again."

Christine Hansen customer review

"We had a fabulous cake delivered for my daughters 2nd birthday party. The top looked just like a scene out of Winnie-The-Pooh! My daughters and the other children loved the cake topper too. As I have come to expect from you, the taste of the cake was exceptional, particularly the vanilla side. I will order from you at the next opportunity!"

Anna Krawczyk customer review

"Just a brief note to let you know that the wedding cake went over fabulously! It was beautiful and the groom loved Marvin the Martin and you are all so talented. We are all so grateful. We would definitely recommend you and visit you again. Thank you!"

Susan Grossman customer review

"What can I possible say ... the Sinatra Rat Pack cake was a smashing hit! Not only was the decorating absolutely superb, but the delectable taste was 'sinfully' marvelous. We are still enjoying it, as are others, and I truly cannot begin to express enough appreciation to you for the fabulous contribution you made in making the party such a success. Thank you for being so wonderful in every respect and I shall look forward to another opportunity to enjoy your extraordinary talents."

Mike & Kim Morehart customer review

"We got married on 4-13-13 and you made us a lovely and delicious cake and we wanted to thank you for everything you did. I've had the pleasure of enjoying your cakes for years and wouldn't have gone to anyone else for a cake on my big day. You met all of my expectations and the feedback from our guests was all positive. Thanks again for a great job."

Marisa Livaditis customer review

"Just wanted to tell you how awesome the cakes were. My son and my father share the same birthday, so we got them each a cake this year. The cakes were both phenomenal! It was our first time getting a fruit filling, and I have to tell you, wow!! So yummy! Thank so much! See you in July for my other son's birthday!"

Chris Gingrich customer review

"Thanks so much for helping to make our rehearsal very special. The cookies and cake were off the charts great. Thank you so much and thanks for accommodating us."

Kariann & Joe Orlowsky customer review

"Thank you so much for our beautiful wedding cupcakes! You were an absolute pleasure to work with and the cupcake tower turned out perfect! Our guests RAVED about the cupcakes! Unfortunately, there weren’t any cupcakes left over to freeze, so we will need to contact you for our one year anniversary order so we can enjoy the delicious cupcakes again! Thank you again for everything you did to make our wedding such a dream come true!"

Robin Nauman customer review

"Thank you so much for the beautiful and delicious cake! It was exactly what we wanted. I cannot tell you how many guests at today's party asked me where I got the cake. They had not had birthday cake so delicious in a long time! Of course I told them all about you. There's no doubt we'll be getting all our future cakes from you!"

Eileen Willis customer review

"The 'Despicable Me' cake is PERFECT! Faith absolutely loves it! Thanks for doing such a tremendous job and your driver was so great! We will be back in June for my 9 year old's 50s sock hop cake! You made my day!"

Paul Skibo customer review

"I just wanted to let you know how much we love your cakes. We are from NJ and had a beloved bakery we used for everything. When we moved to Delaware a couple years ago we were searching for a good cake place for our son’s 1st birthday party and someone recommended you to us. I’m so glad we gave you a try. You now have become our beloved DE bakery! Keep up the good work! PS – Really love the website. Makes it so easy to order online and pickup in store."

Jennifer & Giariet Walker customer review

"I can't believe how amazing our wedding cake looked and tasted! We are so thankful for the time and detail your crew took to make our cake beautiful! We loved our experience at Cakes by Kim. We recommend you to Deerfield and EVERYONE we know. Thanks a million!"  

Steve & Alisa Pierce customer review

"My husband and I can't begin to thank you enough for the wonderful baby gender cake you made for us! Your staff members are all so thoughtful and friendly, which is one of the main reasons we chose you to make our special cake. Having the cake filling colored blue to tell our family we are having a baby boy was such a hit! The cake was so moist and flavorful we only had a few pieces left, and the buttercream icing was to die for! Thank you again for such a wonderful experience and tastefully delicious cake."

Lisa & Kale English customer review

"Thank you so much for the beautiful wedding cake. It was absolutely gorgeous, and tasted even better! It was more than we could have imagined. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, and our cake was just perfect. Thank you for all your caring and hard work that you did to make everything so great."  

Eschalla Clarke customer review

"Thank you for working with me and making a spectacular set of cakes for us on June 12th. They looked beautiful against our decor, and best of all they tasted GREAT! We received compliments from people who weren't even cake lovers. Thank you for a job well done."

Dawn Titter customer review

"I wanted to thank you so much for everything you did for the baby shower cake I ordered. From the first email I sent, you went above and beyond to see that what I wanted was taken care of. I had so many compliments on the cake and the cookie pops that I had to express my gratitude. Everyone was great, and I look forward to doing business with you again!"

Mary & Jason Czech customer review

Kera Wooten customer review

"Thanks so much for the fantastic individual cakes. Our guests raved about the taste and presentation. Many people thought they were fake -- that's how flawless they were! Curt and I are thankful that every encounter we had with you and your staff was warm, professional, and service oriented. You made this part of the planning stress free."  

Wanda Angotti customer review

"Thank you so much for the beautiful cake you prepared for us. Everyone has raved about how delicious it was. I wish I had business cards to pass out for you. Thanks again for helping make our party a success!"

"After our amazing experience we had to write a review. You did incredible work on our son’s first birthday cake. The train theme cake you created was spectacular and fun! Our guests were so impressed with the design and the taste. We especially appreciate how easy you were to work with and the accommodations you made for us. We will definitely recommend your business in the future."
