Linda's cakes are amazing. Get the orange champagne cake. It's light, fluffy and completely unique and delicious. Linda was easy to work with and you will be supporting a small business owner. Buttercream!!

Linda made a great cake! Everyone was so happy with the taste of it and the design. She also delivered the cake, which really helped make the day less stressful. I would recommend her for anyone looking for a high quality cake.

My cake was FANTASTIC for my wedding! Everyone commented on how pretty is was AND how delicious it tasted! I had 2 cake flavors, chocolate and lemon, with a strawberry filling and it was just incredible! I fell in love with those flavor combinations at the tasting and Linda was just great to work with! We didn't really have an idea for what we wanted our wedding cake to look like and Linda was very helpful! She had us flip through her huge binders of cakes and then we selected a bunch that we liked, then slowly narrowed it down! I would definitely recommend her if you want a delicious and beautiful wedding cake!

We initially had a different cake vendor in mind for our reception. However, my husband and I were starting to feel a little uncomfortable how the vendor came off and our gut told us to look elsewhere. We’ve started our search for a cake vendor by going to different wedding expo/showcases. My husband and I stumbled upon Linda’s table at this first expo we went to and sampled many of the flavor cakes she had. My husband could not stop talking about the Mango Passion Fruit flavor. I didn't want to admit it but I secretly liked it too. I kept telling myself we should keep on looking for more vendors. On our last wedding expo/showcase, it was at Dream Shaadi. I think that's when I realized I wanted to book Linda to do our wedding cake. We made our first appointment with Linda and talked over the simple design that incorporated our culture on the cake. She made sugar flower (plumeria) and we chose one of the cakes she made in past because we didn’t want anything too extravagant. When it came down to the flavors, we ended up getting two layers of Mango Passion Fruit and Orange Champagne. Our guests LOVED our cake. We recently just finished the last remaining slice from our reception and we were so satisfied with our choice of vendor.

CakesbyLinda has high local reputation and when we visited her for a cake for our son's wedding reception, we were struck by her graciousness, creativity and openness. She carries an album full of fine examples of cakes she has made. Since our daughter-in-law had adorned a custom-designed, unique Indian wedding dress -- worthy of special mention by the New York Times -- for their destination wedding, we asked Linda to make a cake representing the dress from the picture we shared with her. She did a superb job of reproducing some fine details of the wedding dress. The cake became a special attraction during the reception. To top off, the cake was delicious with two different flavors. The cake was delivered to the site in a timely way. We were impressed with ease of doing the business with them.
