Yes, they have beautiful cakes. But we always pay them a visit when we're in town for the Man Cookies!!! It sounds so simple, most people can make yummy chocolate chip cookies. But these are almost beyond yummy - I'm serious. I'm not getting paid or getting free cookies (I wish!) I wouldn't sing its praises if it weren't true.... More

I never expected the wedding cake to taste like at this bakery. It was a waste of money, a cake for the picture only. I could not stop apologizing in front of my guests. It was too dry, too sweet, too boring and too expensive. I don't even have a comparison to make. It was my mistake too, I didn't... More

Placed an order as out of state. Not friendly and did not follow through on an order and requirements. For their prices they should be professional and be on top of their of work; which they are not by any means.

While not a restaurant, there are many small things that you can take away to munch from this bakery. The true stars are the cakes and you should go in just to see them. We ordered one for my wife's birthday and it was simply spectacular - beautiful, creative and tasty. She and most of our guests are still talking... 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

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 treat.

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
