Very good brownies

Enjoyed the delicious brownie I picked up during lunchtime. So delicious that I had to stop myself from eating the entire thing. It was moist, chocolately, and large. While the desserts are delicious, they are a bit pricey, especially the cakes. It is definitely worth a trip inside for a special... read more

In the beginning, I made a reservation to taste cake at another but accidentally went to Fancy Cakes thinking that was my appointment. I am so glad I made that mistake. They were willing to give me free cake tasting and to go over designs even though they were busy helping other customers. I hate how I forgot the woman's... More

There was only one Man Cookie left, but they were kind enough to make two more while we waited! They are a MUST for any one who loves really decadent chocolate chip cookies. Well worth it, trust me! YUM........

We live overseas. After reading lots of reviews, last year I ordered a cake for our son's birthday from Fancy Cakes, for our US summer holiday. The process was fairly straightforward and I paid for a delivery service to bring the cake from MD to VA. The cake was lovely and delicious. I like to give business to vendors who... More

Without question, the baking is really first rate. The problem is with the poor attitude of the people working there,and especially Leslie, the owner. We live in the neighborhood, and have started going there to try them out to prepare for a wedding cake, which we were ordering on short notice (not for them, for us). Every time, there has... More

I had two cupcakes here, the cookies and cream and chocolate with ganache. The icings were sweet without being overpowering and the cakes were moist and delicate. The cakes had a little more almond extract than I prefer but I still enjoyed them.

This place offer a fantastic deserts decoration! I couldn't resist to take a look inside just because of the decoration they have. I tried the cup cakes and I liked them. If you think you can't stand waiting in line for the "other" cupcake store try this one instead.

Return visit to Fancy Cakes By Leslie. They are more than just a bakery for fancy custom cakes (which I still haven't tried). To me, this is a first class bakery that is home to the most OUTRAGEOUS chocolate chip cookie you will ever have - the "man cookie" are two soft and heavenly chocolate chip cookies FIVE INCHES IN...

Went in here at close on Sunday to order a custom birthday cake for Wednesday pick up and they came through. We did the 10-12" round and it could have served 25, it was so dense and heavy. It felt like it weighed 25 lbs. Their red velvet is to DIE for and so moist it tasted just as wonderful... More
