We were thrilled with our cake from Heidelberg. We wanted a three tier to display/cut, and then sheet cakes in the back to cut/serve for us to serve 150 guests. We were able to do the whole thing under our budget (under $500) and received so many compliments. My brother-in-law, a dessert connoisseur, wants to make a special trip to Heidelberg next time he is in the DC area!We wanted a simple buttercream cake and our florist (Greenworks) added fresh flowers to it that day. I sent photos and talked with the team about the design, and they executed it perfectly. We did pound cake for the tiered cake and then used their more birthday-like cake consistency for the sheet cakes that were not displayed but just served. We were able to do a variety of flavors because of the different layers and the different sheet cakes. It was delicious, beautiful, and under budget. Save yourself time and book with Heidelberg! They were so wonderful and not pushy to deal with!Photos courtesy of Sandi Foraci Photography.

Let Heidelberg Pastry Shoppe be part of your special day.

We have wedding cakes and groom cakes in assorted flavors. Traditionally a grooms cake is a chocolate cake with chocolate icing and decorated with chocolate shavings. We offer this and more! Please check out our various groom cake designs.

We also offer the truly unique portrait cake! Just bring us your favorite photograph-color or black & white, and wallet size to 8" x 10"- and we will put the image on top of the cake. It is completely edible, and you will get the picture back unharmed. There's no better way to surprise the groom and guests than by putting his baby picture-or a picture of the prospective bride and groom-on the cake. Portrait cakes are also perfect for the rehearsal dinner. We can make portrait cookies as wedding favors, and even portrait cupcakes. Please ask us for details and suggestions. Please browse through our wedding cake directory to see what we can offer you on your special day!

If I could give Heidelberg 15 out of 5, I would! The cake tasted so, so fresh and the frosting was soft and not excessively sweet.

I have literally NEVER had wedding cake as excellent as the cake at my wedding. Usually it tastes dry and overly sugary. Furthermore, it tasted fresh days after, as we decided not to freeze the top layer, but to enjoy the rest for breakfast etc.

On top of that, the design was perfect, exactly what I requested. Multiple wedding guests told me my cake was the best wedding cake they'd ever had. One friend when back for seconds (twice!), totaling 3 slices. haha.

Thank you, Heidelberg Pastry Shoppe! I cannot recommend you enough.

I chose this bakery because out of all the cake tastings we went they provided us with big slices to try and one of the slices was Bavarian cream. All the other bakeries didn't have Bavarian as a flavor to try. lol We went with a Bavarian strawberry filling for our wedding cake. The cake was tasty but the design didn't look like the pic I provided. It was similar to the pic I provided. All and all I was happy with the cake.
