Everyone loved the cake and complimented us on both how awesome it looked and how good it tasted! We had a Harry Potter themed cake - it was a bunch of books from the series. We told her what we wanted and gave her a picture that was a general idea, and she did an amazing job bringing that idea to life. Also, the cake tasted fantastic! We had chocolate, lemon raspberry, and red velvet. The lemon raspberry was by far the best. Definitely recommend them!

From the day we started planning our wedding, my husband said that I could make all of the decisions for the wedding, but he wanted a peanut butter and jelly cake. I thought he was crazy. When we went to taste test cake, he told her his dream of a PB&J cake and she said she could make it happen. It was delicious and beautiful. I can't wait for our 1-year anniversary some can take the top out of the freezer and eat it. :)

My wedding cake from Jennuine Cakes and Cafe was truly the most beautiful wedding cake I have ever seen. In addition to being beautiful, it tasted wonderful! We had 2 different flavors, each equally delicious. Our wedding guests were actually asking for a second piece so they could taste each flavor. I would recommend Jennuine Cakes to anyone and am looking forward to using them again in the future.

I used Jennuine Cakes for my wedding in 2008 and my sister just used them for her wedding this pas weekend. The cakes were amazing. They are beautiful and delicious. I will use Jennuine cakes for all of my cake/cupcake needs and I highly recommend them! Even the caterers who have been to a ton of weddings commented that it was the best cake they've had!

I did cake pops for my shower and a sheet cake for my wedding. The are amazingly delicious and fresh and the prices are great. I had so many compliments on both desserts. Will use them for any cake I need!

Jennifer was absolutely wonderful and the treats were delicious! We had a Rice Krispie wedding cake and she put raspberry icing in the middle with white icing on the outside. It was super light and everyone loved it. They also made cookie trays for my shower and for the wedding as well. So yummy!

Jennuine Cakes did an amazing job for my wedding!!! I decided to have 8" cakes as my center pieces so I ended up having 9 different flavors. Several of my guests told me it was the best wedding cake they ever had. When I met with Jennifer we went over what I had in mind and the cakes turned out beautifully. She is very talented. She even made sugar peonies to top each cake. Their prices are incredibly reasonable, especially considering the quality of the product. I looked at 5 bakeries before I picked this one. Hands down, best cake and best prices in Pittsburgh. I did have an issue getting in touch with them a couple of weeks before the wedding but I found out I had been talking to their son who was not relaying the messages. I'm recommending Jennuine Cakes to all of my friends. You won't regret using them for your wedding and you'll probably save a little money too!

We have not only had their catering many times but also made Jennuine cakes a part of numerous occasions--most important though, was our wedding day! Jennifer at the shop is easy to work with and does an excellent job! The details of our three tiered display cake were spot on and the taste was delicious-almond with raspberry and cream filling. We also had a sheet cake to cut so guests could have a choice. The sheet cake was a triple chocolate cake with chocolate icing, chips throughout and a chocolate ganache filling. Surprisingly enough, it was not overly sweet! That's what we love about their icing--it is the perfect amount of flavor and sweetness. Their food and desserts are a must try!

Our wedding cake was perfect! I am not a big cake eater, I usually skip it at birthday parties and weddings but our cake was SO good! I got a taste with the cake cutting and after dinner I actually ate a piece (I may have even eaten my husbands piece too!) She decorated it beautifully, exactly how I envisioned it. After the wedding our refidgerater broke and we lost our cake top so I plan on ordering a new one from Jennuine Cakes for our first anniversary :)

We were so happy with our cake from Jennuine Cakes. Jennifer did an absolutely gorgeous job on the "lace" design on the cake, and the guests raved about how delicious it was. Now, I recently went vegan before my wedding day, and Jennifer was more than accommodating for my request! She happily listened to my desire to have a small vegan cake (separate from the three-tiered cake) that we would use to cut into and that would be my dessert. She was the only vendor that was open to doing this and I really appreciated her effort, and the cake was delicious :-) We also found her pricing to be very reasonable. Highly recommend!

I was very particular about my cake from look to taste to budget. When my husband and I arrived to the reception we were in awe. The cake was beyond what I was hoping in terms of look and it tasted better than I remembered from the intial tasting. So often people dont remember the cake or have a chance to eat it, but I've had so many guests rave about how wonderful it was. I even had someone ask to take an additional piece home. I really enjoyed working with Jennifer

We went to Jennifer with a photo and an idea and she created the most beautiful delicious cake. We received many compliments. The caramel icing is wonderful especially for fall weddings.

We loved our cake. Reasonably priced & delicious. It was beautiful, a three-tier square cake with a small blue dot decorating it.
Our Cake was one of the best things about our wedding, and one of the most reasonably priced! Other bakerys with bigger names, end up sending stale, not so good cakes, but Jennuine is the best in the PGH area! Order with them, you will NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!! Our cake was beautiful and fresh for days after the wedding!!! :)

She was conscious of our wedding budget. She gave us tips on how to save some money without losing any of the elegance. She had several pictures for us to look at, but we were still able to change a couple details to give us the cake we wanted. We were able to use flowers that matched the bouquets and ribbon to match the bridesmaids' dresses. Also, we had a unique cake topper that had to be placed on the side and she was able to make the cake look like it was made for it. And the taste was delicious! We have since gone to her for birthday and shower cakes. If we lived any closer, we'd be +50 lbs.

She made my cake exactly as I wanted, no questions asked. Any ideas I threw at her, it was no problem. This was not my experience with other bakeries I had previously talked to. The cake turned out perfect, as if it had come directly from a picture in my mind! It was a 4-tier stacked square layer cake covered with white fondant and the edges were made to look like bamboo. Everyone at the wedding said it was the best wedding cake they had ever tasted. We had 2 layers of chocolate batter with a ganache filling and 2 layers of white batter, one with strawberry jam filling and one with raspberry jam filling. Delicious! I LOVED my cake.
