I am glad that I can find a customized cake shop. Apart from customized cakes, their blueberry pop tart and almond filled croissants were also great. Especially the blueberry tart, just love it.The only deficit is that it costed 5 days to do a 5-inch classic style cake. The cake shops where I used to visit in China provide same day cake preparation service. Anyway, I cannot expect that kind of service here, but it would be nice if they can short the times. More...

Oakleaf is the greatest coffee shop that exists + they make great cookies and cakes (which I rarely buy due to staying away from sugar) but I still want to support them. I fear for their survival due to competitors continually springing up. Also if you are working in Oakleaf on your laptop and need something to eat you have no food options which propels you to head over to WF or Nero!! Bake me a buttery croissant with ham and fresh cheese please!  Message me if you are looking for food ideas, would love to help. More...

I've hired this place thrice already. One for my gender reveal, then baby shower and now my cake. I just like the fact that it's so easy to design and customize a cake with them and no headaches in terms of pickup and delivery. You can count on them to deliver with high quality and will look like as you pictured your cake. More...

This place is the best!!! I have been coming here for the few years and the quality of ALL their food and drinks are without consistently if the utmost superior quality to any other bakery in the area. The staff are some of the warmest, kindest and most helpful people in the world. I [hand to God] have never had a bad experience while here. I LOVE and highly recommend the chai lattes and confetti sugar cookies. Worth every penny and always my little escape from hectic Boston life. More...

I adore this bakery. I lived above it for three years and loved being able to go downstairs to buy delicious cakes (great for last minute birthday cakes) or grab coffee in the morning. Can’t recommend heavily enough.

Amazing vegan bakery near the Northeastern campus. I love their brownies and chocolate espresso cookies and orange-chocolate muffins the most! The coffee is delicious as well. I am sometimes disappointed when the only vegan offering is a blueberry muffin or almond cookie so would recommend that they keep an eye on the vegan inventory/selection. Cashiers have always been kind and fun! While school's in session, I come here once or twice a week. More...

Oakleaf Cakes is absolutely incredible. I'm in Boston for the summer and wanted to get a cake for my birthday, but I have an allergy to all dairy products, and it's so hard to find a bakery that can accommodate that. Oakleaf has vegan cake options, and I was able to order a 7 inch gourmet cake that would be absolutely beautiful and dairy-free, not to mention soooooo delicious. Hands down the best red velvet I've ever had. More...

Oakleaf provided cupcakes for our Wedding at the NE Aquarium this July. After reviewing so many vendors while planning our event we were so excited to land on Oakleaf! They were incredibly easy to work with and the cupcakes were delicious! Oakleaf accommodated some special requests of ours to keep to our theme colors and we loved the way they turned out. Thank you Oakleaf for a stress-fee wedding cake experience! More...

Amazing taste and excellent quality! My wife and I went to Oakleaf Cakes for our wedding cake and were not disappointed! We sampled their cupcakes to decide on what flavor we wanted. We ended up ordering a red velvet cake with vanilla buttercream frosting.We realized that we needed a slightly bigger cake than we originally ordered. We simply called to request a bigger size and they just charged the difference to our credit card. It was super simple and convenient! I would highly recommend ordering a cake for any occasion and if you happen to be close by they have amazing cupcakes and juices! More...

I had a cake made for my twin girls graduation and we had figurines made of the girls sitting on the cake with their white graduation dresses and flower crowns on. It was amazing to see the detail in this cake. Even down to the embroidery on one of the dresses. Their rings and necklaces and even their nail polish. It was the highlight of the party and a huge talking point. The cookies and cupcakes that we had accompanying the cake were delicious. I was worried that it would be all aesthetics and maybe the cakes and cookies wouldn't be as good as they looked. They were. Fabulous and, although costly, it was really worth it. More...

We ordered a custom cake and it was amazing! I work at a museum and we were having a party for our director who specializes in Peruvian archaeology. So we had the good folks at Oakleaf make an edible replica of a Peruvian pot. It was the center of attention at our party. It was so spot on they even captured the small cracks and paint losses that the original has. Everyone was so impressed--it was definitely a highlight and made it a very memorable event.  See it on our Instagram! instagram.com/p/ByDrQwQA… More...

Oakleaf is definitely one of the best local bakeries in Boston and operated by Boston college alumni. For the most part, they offer a pretty solid product and excellent cakes. I have bought their pastries dozens of times. In my opinion the cheesecakes, pop tarts, and cupcakes tend to shine above the rest of the selection. With that said, some of their stuff can be AMAZING one day and then disappointingly average the next day. I have baked enough in my life to be able to tell, just by looking, what I think it will probably taste like. I just hate needing to analyze everything I get there before I make the purchase.Unfortunately, Oakleaf is very inconsistent. One day the confetti cookies will be chewy, thick, and white; the next day thin, dark, and crispy. There is a lack of calculating that creates these mix results. Every part of the process needs to be calculated: the temperature of the ingredients, the weight of each ingredient, the humidity in the room; the precise bake time—everything. Any good baker worth their salt knows this. I want to be able to say, go to Oakleaf where you can have the best confetti cookie of your life, not, well if you go to Oakleaf enough you might one day get the best confetti cookie of your life. I personally do not care about what direction they go, because I know someone will appreciate it. Some people like chewy cookies; other people like crispy. All I am saying is it would be better if you just stick to one concept so you can guarantee your customer's satisfaction. More...

I ordered a custom graduation cake for my husband from Oakleaf. They accepted a few photos of my ideas and then took the reigns to create the look without much guidance. The end result was amazing and we received compliments from lots of people in the restaurant. They had an easy to use online payment option which was awesome. Although the custom cake was expensive, I'm glad I spent the money for the special occasion. I'd use Oakleaf again for sure! More...

Oakleaf Cakes just made the most beautiful sculpted cake for my company.  We are in the middle of a large construction job and recently had a topping out ceremony.  I sent architect renderings of our new building to Oakleaf and our employees though our delivered cake was a model created by the architects!  The cake looked so good that our architects posed near the cake for a photo op.  Not only was the cake beautiful and perfect to the eye, but it tasted exquisite as well!  Our employees were delighted!  Thank you, Oakleaf!  We will definitely be calling you for our next corporate event.

Thank you for wonderful cake for Beethoven's 248th birthday December 16.  Terrific design and execution of Beethoven and Schroeder in appropriate color and with beautiful musical notation.  The chocolate cake and raspberry buttercream filling were truly worthy of the beautiful design on the fondant.  Our musician guests were much impressed.  We high recommend your wonderful work.

A friend and I needed some coffee before taking a late night drive up to Maine. We just needed coffee, but we ended up getting some nice coffee.I got the Sidama roast and it was really good. I love my coffee sweet so I added some creamer. The coffee had a berry like tinge of taste, which I really enjoyed. It was cold and rainy outside, so the coffee was that much more refreshing.Of course, I noticed all the cakes and cupcakes. Always on the look out for vegan/lactose-free treats, I asked about all their vegan options. At 9pm on a Friday, im happy to report they had at least 4 very appetizing vegan options, including a cupcake and some cookies. The barista let me know that they were always changing it up so expect a diversity of vegan options if you can check them out on multiple occasions. That being said the barista was super enthusiastic about their vegan options, which is always nice. I'll have to try their vegan cupcakes out when I'm not watching my carbs! ;) More...

This place is amazing, I had a vegan muffin for the first time and oh my so good. I ordered at the last minute a VEGAN birthday cake and they were happy to help me . The Cafe is located near Symphony Hall in Boston and I highly recommend dropping in to see all that they have to offer. Can't wait to try the RED VELVET CAKE TONIGHT. I must say I'm so happy to have found this place as the cake was beautifully decorated and moist inside and not really sugary frosting you might find on some cakes . More...

We did not have traditional dessert at our wedding (ice cream sandwiches from a food truck) but we knew we wanted a small personal cake for my husband and I to cut. Sarah at Oakleaf was quick to respond, easy to work with and the cake artists there delivered exactly what we wanted. The design was absolutely beautiful but the cake and frosting were even better! We would highly recommend Oakleaf for any of your future cake design needs. More...

My husband and I hired Oakleaf after a year search for the perfect bakery to make our wedding cake. We fell in love with Oakleaf for many reasons, their cakes/frostings are delicious, they were able to accommodate for dietary and allergy restrictions, and they were very easy to work with. They made a beautiful two tier wedding cake and 150 cupcakes for our big day and worked with me to create a surprise pokemon grooms cake for my husband. They were helpful and patient when I contacted them for the 3rd time to change cupcake flavors and put together a beautiful display table for the wedding day featuring the cupcakes and cake. Everyone at the wedding loved the cupcakes and asked who our baker was! Cannot recommend Oakleaf highly enough! More...

We used Oakleaf Cakes for our wedding and were incredibly impressed! The team was very responsive and professional, and the cake and cupcakes were DELICIOUS and absolutely beautiful. The initial "cake tasting" experience was a bit underwhelming, but overall I would highly recommend anyone in the Boston area to work with them. The price was extremely reasonable, and we had so much flexibility with our cake/cupcake flavor combinations, designs, etc. Our guests loved the variety and my husband and I sneak back to Oakleaf's brick & mortar location once in awhile to try new flavors that we didn't have at our wedding. Thank you, Oakleaf! More...

This tucked-away little bake shop is a delight. I came here on a Monday afternoon and ordered the strawberry champagne cupcake, for ~$3.50. The girl behind the counter was very friendly and they had a good selection of flavors; although they don't sell slices of cake, they have cupcakes, cookies, scones, and poptarts, among other pastries (both vegan and non-vegan). The cupcake I ordered was delicious -- light and fluffy cake (just a smidge dry) with creamy and airy buttercream frosting. The cake was well suspended with tiny chunks of strawberry that added a nice tangy taste. 5/5, and will consider them for future custom cake events as well, since their designs are beautiful!

I LOVE this place and come here whenever possible for cakes, treats, and mostly the coffee! Generally staff is amazing, but there is one staff member I generally have problems with. I've been in food service for a long time, so I try to be forgiving but every time I walk in and it is him at the counter I get disappointed. This morning he ignored me for several minutes, he was working on another customer's order so I get it, but he didn't even acknowledge me when I walked in. I was short on time, and the next customer kept ordering more so I went to walk out so I could get to work. The worker tried to stop me, but I said "you didn't even acknowledge me, and I have to go." He started to argue with me before I walked out.I love this place, I really do, and I would give it five stars if I didn't have a poor experience with this barista every single time he was working. Outside of today's experience he also just doesn't have a great attitude and I end up leaving feeling down. More...

I absolutely love Oakleaf. Their coffee (especially the cold brew) is delicious and their baked goods cannot be beat.

We had the cake delivered to our house, and they were here well ahead of time. Overall, we had a fantastic experience with Oakleaf Cakes, and will definitely reorder! More...

They have one of the best red velvet cupcakes I've ever had!!! Given the prices, I would not recommend the birthday cake vanilla cupcake (I didn't like the icing, and it's just much more worthwhile to get the red velvet) or the confetti sugar cookie. But I've literally come back twice in 3 days just for that red velvet!!! Also the atmosphere of this bakery is peaceful and cute. More...

I had such an amazing experience with Oakleaf Cakes. I wanted a custom decorated cake for my graduation party and they made it so easy. I reached out to them through their website to see if they could make the design that I had in mind and within 24hrs I had a quote for the cake with additional options to personalize the cake. The hardest part about the process was choosing the flavors which Sarah happily helped me with. She arranged for me to do a mini cake tasting, provided me with the most popular flavors and some seasonal options. Any cake/frosting combo was possible. Oakleaf Cakes also took care of the delivery so it arrived at the venue and was set up on display by the time I arrived. I can not recommend Oakleaf Cakes enough for making a delicious and beautiful cake. More...

This place is amazing because they always have vegan options and they taste amazing for a great price. I believe most treats cost $2.75 except cupcakes which cost $3.50. My favorite is the vegan pear muffin. I didn't expect it to be anything great since I'm not the biggest pear fan, but it is absolutely delicious! Also, their cookies are HUGE! More...

This visit was just a quick run in to make sure that the right inspiration pieces were there for our decorator. Sarah, was absolutely a delight as always. I tried a Cheddar Chive Scone and a Caramel Latte this time and wasn't disappointed. The young man who made my latte did an amazing job! As for that scone? Yeah, just get it. It's light, fluffy, but just filling enough to get a boost to your morning.  The flavor is well balanced and delicate and this might have been better if I'd asked to warm it up. Maybe next time!

Sarah and her team designed a custom cake for my wife's 50th birthday party. Oakleaf created a lifelike Maine Loon cake. It was so lifelike that most of the attendees didn't even realize that it was cake. Coloring was beautiful, and the details incredible, from the glowing red eyes to the tail feathers. Tasted delicious too, vanilla cream cake with Maine wild blueberries. They've now become my favorite bakery and for future events, I will know exactly where to go! Thank you so much, your team is fantastic!Tom More...

Yummmm. I had a mini-vanilla bean cheesecake to go and it was an excellent decision. Looks small, but it's packed with flavor and I was full after I finished that little guy. Highly recommend. Of course, everything looks delicious in there, so it's probably to pick something you wouldn't like. I even grabbed a vegan brownie for hubs and he loved it. Ok ok, I ate a piece too. Two thumbs up, and I can be persnickety when dairy is absent. More...

Gorgeous cake, helpful staff, wonderful flavor. Decoration was detailed and beautiful. Check out Oakleaf's moisture / sweetness chart on their website to pick the right balance. They offered great guidance on cake / icing combinations and overall were super helpful. Guests at the event -- including some extremely skilled bakers -- kept talking about how unusually good the cake was. Someone is putting their heart and soul into making these cakes. Would definitely order again. More...

We really wanted a birch tree look wedding cake and reviewed quite a few baker's online portfolios looking for someone who might be able to capture what we were hoping for at a reasonable price (which can prove hard in the Boston area). Oakleaf Cakes was one of the places to get our attention, and they were so quick to respond to our inquiry that we wound up booking our first (and it turns out, only) tasting with them. The flavors were wonderful, the texture rich, and all the staff members we interacted with were very pleasant and professional. I was nervous about having a baker an hour away from our venue delivering the cake, in the winter, but the weather thankfully cooperated and Oakleaf had everything set up and ready to go with time to spare for our florist to add natural flowers to the cake, as planned. My husband and I didn't actually get to see the cake until the reception, and we were definitely in love. After tasting it, the feeling was only strengthened. We're so pleased we chose Oakleaf Cakes for our big day and would gladly recommend them. More...

This place is a great bakery right off of Whole Foods, I got the mocha chip chocolate cupcake and it was the best cupcake I have ever had, the buttercream is rich and smooth and the cake is perfectly cooked, my boyfriend got the chocolate chip cookie and it was ok nothing too special about it, I'd recommend going there and checking out the place atleast for the cupcakes if nothing else

This cute little bakery is staffed by some of the kindest people in Boston. They helped me pick out the perfect birthday cake for my boyfriend. When a death in the family changed our celebration plans, Oakleaf Cakes was so understanding and helpful with rescheduling the order.

Oakleaf went above and beyond on our wedding cake! Sarah and Liz were both so responsive to all my emails, and the tasting was amazing! The flavors of the cakes are all great, and they had no problems handling my odd spice allergies. Our cake ended up being exactly what we wanted. They managed to en incorporate lace, burlap, blue ribbon, and the birch design while still making the cake look neat and absolutely magical! Plus, they delivered it almost an hour away, and were so professional through the whole process! More...

Love this little cafe. I like to study here sometimes because it's quiet. They only really offer sweet treats, so if you're looking for a sandwich, you won't have any luck here. But, the goodies I've had were excellent. I've tried a variety of their cupcakes and muffins. Also, they have great options for vegans too! The vegan options are just as flavorful and satisfying. The prices are pretty on par with other similar places like Pavement or even Starbucks. The muffin I had recently was $2.75. One might think it's pricey, but it is comparable with other places. But I enjoy their baked goods more than other nearby places. Lastly, I have had pleasant experiences with the staff. They've always been very welcoming and kind. More...

I've been to this spot pretty often because it's my local bakery spot. They have a lot of vegan dessert options that they switch out everyday.To be honest the Aztec hot chocolate was a bit strong, and so was the spiced muffin. So I personally would avoid those flavors but still go for a classic coffee and desserts. More...

Oakleaf made the most beautiful cake for my son's 3rd birthday! They were super easy to communicate with and had great customer service. I gave them a few quick instructions on what I wanted the cake to look like, and they whipped up exactly the right thing. Every parent and kid at the party thought the cake looked and tasted amazing!

I recently ordered a wedding cake cake from the Oakleaf Bakery and they did a splendid job. The detailing was impeccable and the cake looked stunning. It was exactly what I had in mind and more importantly they were able to translate my vision despite communicating only through phone and emails. The workmanship was so great that for the longest time everybody thought the roses on the cake were real (they were sugar roses actually)! To top it all, it was delicious! Especially one of the flavors was coconut, and it was highly appreciated as it was something unique.The cake made the day extra special. I would highly highly recommend the bakery for anyone looking for an artistic and delicious cake! :) More...

I stop by here for a coffee (they have punch cards!) and a quick cupcake pretty regularly. The staff is always really friendly, and the cupcakes are decent - on the dryer side typically but the cake to frosting proportion is great here. They have really cute seasonal treats as well, and their grab and go cakes always look amazing (again, typically on the dryer side so keep that in mind). More...

Our cake ended up being one of my favorite parts of our wedding! When we walked into the venue and I saw it for the first time, I think I squealed with delight.

We did a tasting/consultation in advance (and we actually had two separate appointments because we wanted to try the funfetti cake and trust me – it was worth it!) and ended up going with a four layer cake for our wedding of about 120 guests (we had estimated high at 150 before we got our RSVPs back).

Our flavors were funfetti (SO GOOD) and vanilla and we chose a mix of lemon, raspberry and blueberry icing and vanilla fondant. Thankfully, our wedding coordinator sent us back to the hotel with a sampling so we could try each and every flavor combo (since it’s really true that you barely eat at your own wedding!). It was EXACTLY what we wanted!

We saved and froze the whole top layer and I’m already looking forward to eating it on our anniversary.
Worth noting, we also got an assortment of vegan cupcakes for a couple of our dairy free guests and they were also a huge hit! The bakery itself is so cute and they have a delicious variety of pastries, cupcakes and coffees.

Great cafe - made me an avid cupcake eater & iced tea drinker. Overall the ambience of the place is always great and cute, though they run out a lot of their top hits by late afternoon (still plenty of things to eat by closing however). Service is a mix bag: once given a free scone and once they forgot and mixed up the whole order. But it's really the food that stands out here. My personal fav: any type of Nutella frosted cupcake!!

Oakleaf Cakes made a wedding cake for a very special friend this past weekend.  The bride and groom asked for a "Nightmare Before Christmas" theme.  From the initial contact, through the tasting, design and delivery, the staff was professional, prompt, responsive and creative.  The cake was three layers, and we we able to have three flavors,carrot and red velvet with vanilla buttercream, and vanilla with Nutella buttercream.  the cake was lovely, exactly what the bride and groom wanted, and delicious.  Amanda opened her original location across the street from my home and business in Winthrop, MA, and I was always impressed with her work, I am so happy to see her business thriving and was excited to use her shop for my assistant and friend's wedding.  I cannot recommend them more highly.

I was so shocked when I saw it because it was better than I dreamed! I'm so happy that we choose Oakleaf. More...

Oakleaf made a gorgeous and totally delicious cake for our wedding. We showed the team a photo of a unicorn cake we had admired online, and the end result was perfect. The cake was vanilla on vanilla, and was so tasty. The outside was covered in ornate detail and the inside was a beautiful pink ombre - totally fun, and totally a work of art. We will definitely order from Oakleaf again. View it here: twitter.com/hodges/statu… More...

We hired the talented people at Oakleaf to design our daughter's first birthday cake. They did an awesome job. To be honest, we didn't give them much to work with. We came in during their office hours (which includes weekends!) and spoke to a cake consultant who was very helpful with helping us chose the right cake. She is a Spring baby so we wanted flowers on the cake and soft pastel colors (we should have chosen brighter colors but that's our fault not theirs). We are very minimalist so didn't want typical kid themes and colors, I personally hate all the Disney themes and obnoxious kid color combinations that are typical for children's birthdays. We wanted it simple and classy and that's exactly what they gave us. The cake not only looked amazing, it also tasted great. We got tons of compliments on the quality and flavor of the cake. Many of our guests wanted to know where we got it! We would definitely buy a cake from Oakleaf in the future. Highly recommend. More...

Adorable. I love this cake shop. I want to win the lottery so I can get a new cake designed for every holiday for the rest of my life. The cakes are beautiful and the artistry is incredible. There are two large photo books that you can look through of wedding cakes and birthday cakes- each is more beautiful than the next! Also seem to be pretty reasonable as far as custom cakes though (but too be honest I don't know much about this). Came in here to escape the cold one evening after dinner and ordered a hot chocolate with almond milk with one of their homemade marshmallows. The marshmallow melted in my mouth and the cocoa was rich and sweet and perfection. I tried my friends salted caramel hot cocoa which was also to die for. I was too full for a real dessert but can't wait to come back and try everything. More...

Three days in Boston and been here every morning. Coffee was great every time. Had the earl grey fudge and triple berry pop tarts this morning and they were spectacular.

Walked in to grab a birthday cake, then had to get three cupcakes because they looked so good. 1) ginger cheesecake: no it's not weird, yes it's pretty damn good. Cheesecake is dense and flavorful yet light enough that it delivers the ginger. The birthday boy, who likes ginger and cheesecake, was thoroughly delighted. 2) chocolate cupcake: I believe the cream was Nutella. Pretty decent. 3) honey almond cupcake: oh my! When they say honey, honey it is. That icing on top is heavenly. It's soaked with honey, just about the right amount of sweetness, and I don't know what else they put in that icing but it just melts in your mouth. Never had a cupcake like this before.4) tiramisu cupcake: the cupcake itself tastes like ladyfinger. And the icing on top is denser than usual, adding a thick creamy texture that makes you lick your fingers in public. In case you haven't noticed, I fell in love with this place. More...

We are so happy we had Oakleaf make our wedding cake! As with every part of our wedding, we were initially worried about the cost, but after doing some research they turned out to be priced similarly to other bakeries and more than happy to work within our budget on the design. We went in for a consultation and tasting several months before our wedding and were so impressed that we put a deposit down on the spot! We showed them some pictures of what we wanted and they came up with a gorgeous design for an optical-illusion-inspired cake.

Our cake turned out to be the single most-photographed thing at our reception (aside from maybe the bride and groom!). Not only was it beautiful, it was also delicious, and we got many compliments on how good everything tasted! I think many people assume that wedding cakes are usually pretty flavorless, but we knew we made the right choice when we heard our guests say "wow, this tastes like something!” The bakery gives you lots of different options for cake and buttercream flavors (which you get to try beforehand), and they make their own fondant! I am only sad that I got just a few mouthfuls in while people kept coming to talk to me at the end of our reception. I’ll definitely be coming back to the bakery to enjoy some more in cupcake form!

Another plus is that they were very organized, professional, and responsive. Once we had our contract and payment sorted out, it was all in their hands, and they dealt with everything. It makes a huge difference in wedding planning when you have one less thing to worry about!

I haven't tried their cake, but I stopped by for some coffee and a treat. The bakery is pretty easy to find, and has cute and cozy decor. There are a variety of brews to choose from, as well as vegan and non-vegan cakes, cupcakes, muffins, and cookies. There is free wifi and tables to sit at. I stayed and did some homework. I was very pleased with my experience (with the exception of them being sold out of vegan muffins and not having vegan cupcakes ready). I got French roast coffee and a vegan oatmeal raisin cookie. I'll definitely be back! More...

It takes a lot to get me to write a yelp review, so the fact that I'm doing this says how incredible a delight this bakery is. The chocolate cardamom vegan muffin is absolutely to die for! It's a culinary orgasm! Finding vegan treats can sometimes be precarious and very hit or miss. I love that this bakery has such a wide variety, vegan and non, plus lots of tasty beverages to go with their sweets. Hot spiced cider on a rainy, cold fall day is a perfect way to go, yet the selection of coffee and tea drinks does not disappoint either. More...

This is such a cute little bakery, and it's open until 11pm too!I came here after a BSO concert, and it proved to be the perfect place for a late night treat. I came just in time for their adorable Halloween-themed offerings and chose a zombie brains cupcake (vanilla bean cake with strawberry buttercream and cherry pie filling), but I was definitely debating the lemon meringue ghost as well! The one cupcake I've had here was delish! The cake is more fluffy than moist and is the perfect sweetness. The buttercream was also very smooth and not cloyingly sweet. There was also a gummy cherry ribbon that bisected the "brain" hemispheres that added a bit of textural realism - slimy, like I would imagine real brains to be. Their prices are standard - $3.50 for a cupcake, and the girl and the counter was super nice. I will definitely be back! Oakleaf has me won over. More...

Oakleaf made an incredible vegan cake and cupcakes for our wedding for ~65 guests. We had their red velvet cake with coconut frosting and an assortment of their three vegan flavors (chocolate, vanilla, red velvet) for the cupcakes. Everyone really enjoyed them, and many were in disbelief about how good vegan cupcakes could be! Oakleaf delivered and very nicely set up the cake and cupcakes on our cupcake stand and even set up our (homemade) cake toppers for us. We opted for a fairly simple but elegant frosting design for the cupcakes, which worked quite well, especially when set up on the 3-dimensional stand. We also really appreciated their patience answering many questions related to food allergies! More...

I've been visiting Oakleaf for a couple of years now for a coffee or tea and a pastry or two. Everything I've had there has been phenomenal - each coffee and tea is made to order with high quality ingredients and they have soy and almond milk as alternatives! I just bought one of their cake for the first time and it was so good I had to leave a review. Unlike some other made-to-order bakeries that use cake mix for their cakes, you can tell that Oakleaf cakes are made from scratch. The Italian merengue frosting was perfect: light and not too sugary. Usually I don't eat all of the frosting on cakes but this time I was scraping my plate clean. This cake was as delicious as it was attractively decorated! More...

While planning a company event, a co-worker mentioned Oakleaf to me in passing. After checking out their website, I was convinced that we needed a custom cake in our lives. From the get go the staff was super professional, very friendly and just plain great to work with. They had really good suggestions, worked within my budget and best of all, our end product was flipping incredible. I asked them to make our custom cake in the shape of the product my company makes and offered to send over a prototype to ensure accuracy. I was told they didn't need that - they had a very good idea based off of our website. That scared me but they insisted and sure enough, the end product was perfection. Our exec team was floored to see how great of a job they did (the cake was a complete surprise which helped). I had such a good experience with Oakleaf and enjoyed telling all of our employees where the cake came from and how great they were to work with. Bravo team! More...

Oakleaf bakery did a fantastic job with the cake for my wedding. All of their staff were kind and easy to work with. Every flavor they provided during the tasting was so good we couldn't pick just one for our special day, so we ended up getting each layer a different flavor. The cake was delivered on time and transported to its location professionally, so when the time came to go to reception tent I myself saw the final product for the first time and was blown away. Beautiful work done by their crew. Would recommend them to anyone. � More...

in my opinion, they do the very best job to decorate the cake and to meet customer's needs.
on the other hand, they are too busy to make a cake with notification less then a week - that what i did not like last time we interacted, so I had to find a different place that was less busy and much more understanding about timelines. They were able to make exactly the same looking cake but MUCH cheaper.
After all, I love mind-blowing, fancy and stylish designs from Amanda Oakleaf. Art is not supposed to be cheap!

I usually think fondant tastes like cardboard, but Oakleaf's fondant was delicious.They also made the favors for the party, which were sugar cookies that looked like fox faces.

The first time I went to Oakleaf, I walked out without buying anything.Why? Because none of the employees acknowledged me, not even to say, "be right with you."Usually that sort of treatment is a deal breaker for me, but I gave them another chance a few months later. I'm glad I did. Oakleaf makes my favorite espresso drink, ever. I'm obsessed with the Charles River. I've tried to order similar drinks from other cafes, but they didn't get close to Oakleafs. When I indulge and buy a baked good, I'm equally as pleased! The only think holding Oakleaf back from 5 stars is their lack of consistency with customer service. A greeting and a smile every time is all it takes! More...

I ordered a custom birthday cake for my husband's birthday from here and they did a marvelous job of the cake. They combined 2 photographs I gave them of the design I wanted and made a final product that was exactly what I was looking for!Just a note about their great service: The receipt was sent to me online after I ordered the cake and all the details were in this email. I made 1 modification and set up for someone else to pick up the cake, all via email and they were very prompt and friendly with their responses. More...

I live down the street in one of the dorms. I moved to Boston this fall for college, and this week had been feeling a bit homesick. I thought a cupcake might cheer me up, so I walked down to Oakleaf. I decided to try both vanilla cupcakes: the vegan vanilla with raspberry icing and the vanilla birthday cupcake. BOTH WERE PHENOMENAL. I'm someone who usually wipes all of the icing off of a cupcake (I prefer whipped cream), but the raspberry vegan icing was so flavorful that I ended up devouring the whole thing. I went right on to the bday cupcake which had what tasted like a whipped cream/icing hybrid on top. Both were very moist and not overly sweet. And... I feel a little less homesick. Great place for treats! More...

There are few places I bother with rating on yelp, but this is one of favorite places in Boston and I'm so upset that it took me this long to try it. Their coffee is freshly ground and brewed in front of you to order, and it's delicious, every one I've tried! Their homemade marshmallows are amazing. Their baked goods are pretty good; the only reason I gave them four stars instead of five is because I wish they had more vegan options since I'm allergic to egg. But the great service makes up for it. More...

We had Oakleaf Cakes make a wedding cake for us. we did Coconut cake with almond buttercream frosting between the layers. It was amazingly delicious! The only reason I did not give 5 full stars was because the color of the flowers that covered the bottom layer was more peach colored and we had wanted pink, but overall the cake looked amazing, they brought it to the venue with no problems, and it tasted so good!

This bakery sells awesome cakes, cupcakes, cookies, scones, and homemade poptarts! The ambience is very cute and feminine. I do not recommend their vegan sweets(which is the only reason I knocked a star off). But definitely try everything non-vegan in this bakery, you will NOT be sorry! For a city-dweller who doesn't drive, this is the best T-accessible bakery in Boston! You can just tell every treat is made with attention to detail and love. :) More...

They have a great selection of desserts, from vegan cupcakes to Bananas Foster homemade pop tarts to chocolate mousse trifles. The regular cupcakes are okay, but not great. The chocolate is not as flavorful and the frostings are very satiny and buttery, which isn't everyone's cup of tea. The vegan cupcakes are delicious! Much better than the regular kind and awesome flavors like Oreo. The trifles are also exceptional,with layers of chocolate cake, chocolate mouse and homemade whipped cream.The bakery has little tables and is pink and gold-guilded for a feminine vibe. There's often space to find a table to chat with friends or work. The baristas are friendly and helpful. Their greatest talent though is definitely decorating. Their cupcakes and cakes are really beautiful and creative. If you want a show stopping cake or to learn how to make one yourself by taking a decorating class, this is definitely the place to do it!

SALTED CARAMEL HOMEMADE POPTARTS. Need I say more? This little coffee shop/bakery is worth a stop just to see the amazing cakes they create - but their coffee and pastries don't disappoint! Iced coffee was delicious and after we spent quite a while looking at all the delicious baked goods in the display case, we chose the chocolate chip banana bread and salted caramel popover. Both disappeared very quickly and left us pondering returning for more. The banana bread was sweet but not overpowering and not dry at all. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Boston - this cute little shop was a perfect place to start my weekend! More...

Instead of a wedding cake we had cupcakes from Oakleaf Cakes. Oakleaf Cakes did an amazing job! Guests couldn't stop raving about the cupcakes at the reception and days after. The flavors available allow you to create some great flavor combinations that are exciting, not just your typical vanilla cake and vanilla frosting. We had three different flavors. Guests kept coming back for more, I'm glad we followed their recommendation and ordered about 20% more cupcakes than guests. It was the perfect amount. More...

We first came across Oakleaf Cakes when we were living in the area and strolled by one day on our way over to Fenway. We stopped in for some lemonade and a treat, and both were delicious! So, when we started wedding planning, I thought this may be a good place to consider for our cake.One of my husband's favorite parts of wedding planning was the tastings, and Oakleaf did not disappoint. They prepared 6 cupcakes for us with different cake and frosting flavors. And we got to try the fondant as well, which was a yummy marshmallow flavor. All of the flavors were delicious, but we settled on a lemon cake with raspberry buttercream frosting. Since we wanted a yellow cake, we also had a layer of lemon buttercream frosting as the outer layer. I had found a picture of a beautiful tiered buttercream ruffle cake online that I presented for inspiration. We were quoted a reasonable price that was within budget. Also, Oakleaf had vegan options, so we ordered 6 cupcakes as well for our vegetarian guests.We weren't looking to spend a lot on the cake but we wanted something tasty, and Oakleaf did not disappoint. The cake was beautiful and so yummy. We got so many compliments from our guests. We even enjoyed our top tier on our one month anniversary! Thank you Oakleaf! More...

LOVE that they carry vegan options as most higher-end bakeries would scoff at the idea. Wish I could give it five stars, but the cake part of the cupcake just tasted just okay. You could tell it would have been amazing if it had just come out. I'm dying to try the home-made pop tarts. Will be back! More...

I have been to many bakeries and Oakleaf was mediocre. There are not many options available, it's always scones, cookies, and cupcakes. I urge Oakleaf to branch out and to bring originality to make more appealing pastries. However, it is a very cozy environment, the employees are kind and you are always greeted with smiling workers. They also have a nice selection of beverages however I do wish they had bigger sizes of coffee. Their large is like a medium in starbucks. You can also pick and choose what you want in a drink. For example although they didn't have caramel hot chocolate in their menu, they still provide it if you ask. All you have to do is mention it. If you go you must try their delicious homemade marshmallows. From their grand display of cakes, I will definitely want to but one the next time I'm there. Also I hear their baking classes are great. Good work Oakleaf, if you expand a little more, I can definitely see you at the top in contrast to other bakeries. More...

The aeropress machines brew a very good cup, and reasonably quickly.The pastries are great and varied, something to please every sweet tooth. The cakes are also excellent, with frosting that isn't overly sugary. My only wish on the food tip is that they'd offer some savory stuff (I dream of cheddar-jalapeño biscuits).The service is always great. There's a nice, tidy place to sit and eat. More...

My husband and I decided to have an nontraditional cake presentation for our wedding. Instead of one large cake to be cut and serve all of our guests, we decided to have a small cake on each guest table. We always noticed at other weddings that when the cake is finally cut and served, everyone is dancing and I never wanted to leave the dance floor to enjoy the dessert. We figured this way, our guests could enjoy the dessert when they pleased.
That being said, we needed to order 16 cakes! During the tasting process, Oakleaf was far and beyond our favorite. They offered the most unique and delicious flavors and we were immediately impressed (and we tasted a lot of cake!). We placed the order and discussed the design and cost. Their bakery manager (if you can even call him that) was incredibly difficult to communicate with and our desires did not seem to be received clearly. I ended up going back into the store a few times to talk face to face which helped but I was so busy planning the whole wedding that it really was a burden to me. My suggestion: hire a designated manager to handle large orders for weddings or other events.
Even after all the issues we had, Oakleaf did an amazing job on the day of our wedding. Everything was delivered on time, looked amazing and everyone said it was some of the best cake they have ever had at a wedding.

I had an excellent experience with Oakleaf Bakery – the entire staff was very responsive and creative and I can say hands down that if you want a custom cake you need look no further. I requested a cake that featured an 18th century Scottish philosopher and all I sent them was a jpeg of a bust image of the man. The artist who took on the project did her own research and detailed the figure with period clothing and had him seated atop the two-tiered cake with his legs dangling over the side accompanied by books with appropriate titles on the binders(!) strewn on either side of him. It was amazing! And the people at the banquet were blown away. Everyone jumped up to take pictures with their smart phones and their I-Pads and exclaimed that they had never seen such a fabulous cake. It was awesome. And the cake itself was not only beautiful it was also delicious. I had chosen the Aztec chocolate and they matched the spices inside with a pumpkin flavored icing that blended well, and the pale orange finish looked great with the red coat of the seated figure. I read that the idea for this bakery came from one woman’s desire to combine her passion for art with her love for sugar and that is exactly what this was. And apparently she has found a whole team who share this vision. If you want your cake to be a work of art as well as a sumptuous dessert, this is the place. More...

This place might be a little more expensive, but it is so worth it. I purchased a red velvet cake from them, and it was phenomenal!! That icing is amazing. We've also had their cupcakes. I can't wait to try their fresh squeezed orange juice. Also, I would like to get here some time in the morning, because I think they have a much larger selection.Also, the custom cakes they make are awesome. They have a crazy talented artist working there. Wow. They also make fun drawings for a chalkboard that they put outside the store during the day. They had The Joker from Batman, and it was an awesome work of art!note: I've gotten cupcakes from here late in the day as well that tasted very dry, but that's probably just because they were out all day. i got them one other time and they were a lot less dry -- still not quite moist though. i haven't collected enough data to know if this is a common theme, so i'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt.

I took a cake decorating class at Amanda Oakleaf and if this review was based solely on that experience, it would be five stars for sure. The class was super fun, helpful, and I feel like I learned a lot about basic cake decorating with buttercream frosting. We also got plenty of samples AND a whole cake to take home so I was a happy camper. I tried both the chocolate and yellow cakes and they were both delicious. I also like that they use italian buttercream frosting because it's less sweet than regular frosting and has a beautiful shimmery effect.On a separate occasion, I went to the shop in search of some cupcakes and while I thought the cake tasted sublime during my class, I was less impressed with the cupcake versions. I tried both red velvet and tiramisu. The frostings on both were good (cream cheese and coffee buttercream), but I just thought the cake lacked flavor. This may just be a cupcake translation issue since the whole cakes were so good at the class. Either way I will try it here again, but maybe not for cupcakes. More...

This review is for their custom cakes only, as i am not a big fan of cup cakes overall and i have not tried any drinks from this bakery. I have ordered two cakes so far and was 100% satisfied with results on both. Although, i have hard time each time ordering (as well as i most likely being annoying to Oakleaf's personal) since cakes are expensive and i am not sure how this whole labor is being calculated. BUT, the results never disappoint me which is the bottom line. Both design and taste are excellent. Cakes aren't too sweet which all of my guests loved the most, and design just see their gallery. So far chocolate with raspberry butter cream and red velvet were big hits. We have also ordered yellow with mango cream and marble with strawberry champagne cream. Would i recommend this place - already did to 50 guests from my party as everyone was asking where i got the cake from. Thank you. More...

It is a dangerous thing that they opened shop right down the street from my office.  I have developed a habit of swinging by for a coffee and pastry for breakfast in the morning.  Being a dairy fan, I was hesitant to try their vegan blueberry muffin, but it's one of the better blueberry muffins I've ever had.  Their coffees are also great, when ordering your java you also get to pick from 5-6 different unique blends that is custom ground when you order it.  While your coffee is being brewed, peruse the incredible display of custom cakes.  It will blow you away.  Definitely consider them when you need a unique and special cake for an event.  Sorry Starbucks, I've found a new local friend!

The cherries inside the pop tart were tart and countered by the sweet chocolate on the outside.  The pastry itself was flaky and buttery, but not greasy.  I can't wait to try other desserts from this bakery! I also noticed the cake decorating class going on in the back of the bakery and hope that I'll get a chance to try that too. More...

This is my new favorite place for coffee: the cafe offers six different roasts and every cup is fresh-ground - and it's still cheaper than my other go-to cafe, which offers one roast which is not fresh-ground. The homemade "pop tarts" are wonderful whenever I've got a sweet-tooth. I kinda wish they offered something more savory - I'm pretty sure whole wheat is entirely banned from their premises - but all of the sweet stuff I've tried is really darn tasty. Their homemade hot chocolate is great for those who prefer theirs not-too-sweet, but if you're of another persuasion you can gnaw on the homemade marshmallow they offer you while you drink it.

Oooh Oakleaf Cakes.  You are my now (since you moved!) favorite bakery in Boston.  I've yet to try your delicious pastries or the hot chocolate that calls my name from miles away, but I can't wait until I allow myself an indulgent moment as I'm sure everything you make is incredible.I've taken two fondant classes here - one in the previous space in Winthrop, and one about a week after they opened their new location here in Boston.  I'll say that their class space is now significantly smaller which makes things kind of cramped and awkward, and the two young women who taught my fondant 2 class seemed a little greener and disorganized than my fondant 1 teachers (Tim + Julie!  Super awesome!), but I loved it nonetheless.Their classes are great - tons of fun, great skills learned, and you go home with a beaaautiful cake.  (If you're lucky, you might also get sent home with any leftover cupcakes from the day - they're really really good!!).  Their fondant is super tasty - not like the traditional chemical-laden stuff, so if you love the aesthetic but never loved the taste you MUST try an Oakleaf cake - your mind will be blown!

The worst part about this place is that it's 3 blocks from my apartment. The second worst is that they make cupcakes that haunt my dreams. Perfect cake, perfect frosting, perfect flavors. If I lived in Winthrop, I would be in serious mourning that Oakleaf decided to move their shop but hey, Winthrop's loss is my gain and all's fair in love and cupcakes. More...

My mom and I took the gift-box, sculpted-cake class together and it was super fun and actually made two awesome cakes.  Unlike with a lot of classes for cake decorating, they actually really teach you so that you could go and make the cake again.  I haven't cut into mine yet, but I tried their chocolate and yellow cakes, as well as their buttercream while I was decorating and they are fabulous!I highly recommend their classes and super pretty fondant cakes.

This darling shop is mostly a sweetshop bakery, but they also serve coffee and hot chocolate.  The coffee is from Barrington roasters, they have three or four kinds and they make your cup to order.  The pastry, at least the day I was there, is all sweet, they don't have croissants or quiche, just muffins along with the cookies and cakes.  For some reason there is also a rack of greeting cards for sale. The shop is really small and charming. I hope they can make a go of it, maybe if they had a few more seats they could bring in an after-symphony crowd or something. I've tried the muffins and they are excellent, though maybe overly sweet. The blueberry is my favorite, it is absolutely full of blueberries and they are full of flavor. Same with the pop tarts, the blueberry is packed with delicious berries.  The pumpkin vegan muffin is good too, you would not know it is vegan, it tastes quite rich. I've tried the giant lemon cookie, flat and as big as a dessert plate, lightly frosted and just the right chewiness.  There are cupcakes, the ones I've tried are with an italian meringue frosting. I really like that, because it tastes lighter than buttercream, which can sometimes overwhelm a cupcake's flavor.  I loved the apple cupcake, it had bits of apple in it and some cinnamon in the frosting, a nice touch was the little fondant leaf on top.If the cupcakes are anything to go on I'm sure the cakes are delicious, and based on the samples in the window they are breathtaking.  Standard cakes start at $100, custom designs start at $150.  It's quite expensive but it seems like a real labor of love and I think for a special occasion it would be worth it.

Drove by this place and thought it looked interesting.They do regular and vegan items. The cake isn't as fluffy as I would thought they would be but they weren't bad.Also tried the vegan cupcake but beware those are extremely sweet.Had some other interesting things like pumpkin turnover and pumpkin bread. Not bad but also on the sweeter side. More...

I stopped by to pick up some breakfast. The place is pretty, the staff are friendly, the stuff that I got (Aztec hot chocolate and a pop tart) was not expensive so yeah I will probably go back. I got an Aztec hot chocolate and it was good, could have been a little hotter but whatever. Now if they would start selling some kind of sandwich with bacon I would probably add Oakleaf Cakes to my breakfast rotation. More...

I went to the bake shop a while back and asked for a plain cheesecake, but the girl accidentally gave me the one with baked apple (which I'm not a huge fan of). I went back that week to get more goodies and told them I didn't like it very much. The gentleman working the counter was super nice and gave me a cheesecake on the house. It's a blessing yet a curse that you are down the street from my apartment! I loved it and will be back most likely every week haha. More...

I went to Oakleaf Cakes on opening day in their new location. I had been waiting for months for them to open (last week, I literally had my nose pressed against the glass trying to read the menu board) and was not disappointed.Inside, the space is open and bright, with mock-up cakes beautifully decorated in fondant on shelves around the bakery. There are a couple of cafe tables to accommodate those grabbing a latte and a muffin with a friend in the shop, and an open space in the back of the room which serves as a classroom for decorating classes. As you stand in line, a small display on the left offers customers the option to purchase cards, candles and tubs of fondant. But my trip was purely selfish, so I didn't waste my time with the celebratory purchases!I ended up going back twice that day. The first time I went alone and bought a "pumpkin pie pop tart." It was really tasty, with pumpkin pie filling inside a flaky pocket, and was gone before I knew it! On my second trip, this time with co-workers, I ordered a coffee and a homemade vanilla marshmallow. The coffee was okay (nothing really to write about here), but the marshmallow was almost too big for its own good.  Even though I split half with mine with a co-worker, I still felt as though I ate an entire box of Peeps! I think these would be better in their hot chocolate instead of alone, but that's just me!I'm really excited to see how Oakleaf will grow over the next few months. The owners seem very hands-on and eager to try new products and recipes to see what works...and I am more than happy to be a taste-tester!!! More...

I didn't even hear the full story until the cake was delivered, cut, and devoured...a friend was planning my party. I told her that I didn't care about anything except that I would be surrounded by my friends and that the cake was something that tasted amazing and would be remembered by EVERYONE. As a child, I always had huge original sculpted cakes and I wanted something that rivaled those cakes for my 40th birthday. She met with Oakleaf Cakes one week before my party to order and design my cake. I now know that bakery was in the middle of a move, changing their location and was not taking new orders. They really went above and beyond to take my order anyway and gave honest advice about their best flavors. My lemon cake had the most delicate raspberry buttercream filling that you can imagine! I was nervous about having fondant on my cake since I usually do not like it. But I was not disappointed by Oakleaf's own marshmallow fondant - beautiful AND delicious!! My cake was delivered perfectly on time (by Amanda herself, as I later found out!). When I saw it, I started tearing up and asked to hug the woman who delivered it. I had never seen a more beautiful birthday cake. AND it was all for me!!! Even the guests without a sweet tooth thought it was a delicious cake and ate every crumb. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Oakleaf Cakes!!! I know that I will rave about you to anyone in need of a cake for any reason. More...

I have taken four of their professional cake decorating classes and after each one I felt like I was inching my way towards being a real cake decorator.  I have taken baking classes at Le Cordon Bleu (rather stuffy) and The Cambridge School of Culinary Arts (loved it) so I feel like I have a little perspective.  The cake artists who teach are relaxed, talented and offer a no pressure environment.  Lots of hands-on time to master the project in your class.  A very welcoming environment!

For our October Wedding we wanted a simple, delicious cake and that's exactly what Oakleaf Cakes delivered! Their buttercream frosting is so light and delicious and the cake is very moist. The cake is so good my husband drove 2 hours out of his way the year after our wedding to get me a small birthday cake of the same flavor as our wedding cake! It was awesome! We had their Apple Spice Cake and their Pumpkin Cake with Cinnamon buttercream. It's a shame we live so far away now. As far as delivery for our wedding everything went smoothly. They were willing to drive quite far to get us our cake. Overall - great customer service and delicious cake! More...

They did a showstopper for my daughter's 1st birthday. It was a 7-layer rainbow cake - each layer was a different color, with white frosting & rainbow sprinkles on the outside. A real work of art. Not only did it look absolutely amazing, but it was so tasty too! So glad we got such great photos of it, because there wasn't much leftover. More...

We were introduced to Amanda Oakleaf when given a sample cupcake to taste at a wedding vendor showroom in Boston. After looking at her designs online, I contacted the shop to schedule a tasting. The staff was friendly and professional from the moment of contact, all the way through the day of our wedding. Our tasting was DELICIOUS, truly that sealed the deal, cake should taste amazing and hers DOES! But we also really enjoyed the collaboration with Amanda to create the design of the cake, which was really important to me. We both felt that she listened to what we wanted and offered a lot of suggestions to make us feel that our cake would be one of a kind. The finished product was beautiful and as delicious as we knew it would be! More...

Amanda Oakleaf made a completely custom surprise groom's cake for our rehearsal dinner- it was absolutely spectacular! I brought them a pile of pictures, images, and ideas that represented 28 years of my fiance's life. They were able to create the most amazing and delicious 4 tiered representation- it was beyond anything I could have imagined. Our guests were so impressed and my fiance was blown away. They have such a creative and fun team, they were a pleasure to work with, and they did an incredible job! More...

We can't say enough good things about the whole experience, and give the highest possible recommendation for anyone who is looking for something memorable, both creative and delicious, NOT the typical tower of bland white fluff. Amanda understood what we were hoping for, and her team created an amazing cake that got a lot of "wows", comments like "best ever", and was even featured in the NY Times' Wedding section on 3/31/13.

Amanda Oakleaf was a breeze to work with. The entire staff was incredibly accommodating, helpful and responsive. The cake was absolutely gorgeous - better than we imagined. Everything from the tasting to the day off was hassle free and so simple. We went with 3 flavors. 2 out of the 3 did not get very good reviews with our guests. The guests said that the red velvet and mexican chocolate were very dry. We have a full tier of the lemon raspberry at home and thought that was delicious. Ultimately, we would use them again as we were most concerned with the design - which was perfect. More...

The cake itself was lovely and very cool looking, though not exactly the right colors. I did receive many compliments on the look of the cake. The cake did not taste as fresh as it had in the tasting, though it was still good, not great. The cake was delivered much earlier than I had told it would be, which would have been okay, except no one was prepared for it to arrive that early and it was placed in the wrong spot and needed to be moved causing problems.

The cake you created for our daughter's wedding surpassed our expectactions. Not only was it a work of art, it was absolutely delicious as well. It looked just like the photo on your website. Many pictures were taken before the cake quickly disappeared. Everyone oohed and aahed over the elegance and wonderful flavor. You delivered it to the restaurant well in advance of the arrival of the guests and it was displayed beautifully. We had to make wedding plans on very short notice and your staff was so helpful. This was no small feat, as you had to work with us long-distance. Thank you for adding so much to such a joyous occasion. Your creativity and attention to detail are unparalleled in our opinion. You are quite simply the best in Boston.

Amanda makes truly delicious cake. Our consultation with her was professional and pleasant, and she understood our needs and ideas perfectly. If you want a cake that looks good AND tastes good, I highly recommend her. Our cake was a three tiered apple and pumpkin cake. It was so moist and yummy that my husband got me a small apple cake from Amanda three months later for my birthday. More...

Amanda and her team created a stunning, creative and tasty wedding cake for our wedding at the artists for humanity epicenter. She created a visually arresting design based off our invitations that was just out of this world. Some of our guests initially thought it was not a real cake- it looked that unbelievable! It was a very collaborative design process and I appreciated that Amanda had a background in art- it definitely showed when it came to the cake. I also am continuing to get compliments on both the look and taste of the cake. I never thought I'd hear someone say "that fondant was so tasty!" but her homemade marshmallow fondant is pretty awesome and the cake and fillings were delicious. Payment and delivery was seamless- there was a whole team there making sure everything was just right and it was. I am not sure I can wait until our 1 year anniversary to eat the cake we froze....

It's the day after my wedding and before I even finish opening my gifts or start writing the thank you cards, I want to post this review -- I am that impressed!

I chose Amanda Oakleaf Cakes on a complete whim. My husband Ryan is really into cake shows, so I thought it might be kind of cool to leave my comfort zone of the vanilla cake + white icing three-tiered deal and get something a bit different. Ryan and I were getting married at a friend's beach house in Nahant, so we wanted something beach-themed. Amanda had some great ideas. What we ended up with was a massive cake (at least by regular standards) that matched the scenery, our invitations and captured our style. In fact, the sugar replica of Graves Light was completely on point and the figurines of the two grooms (these folks are very same-sex marriage friendly, we were well-treated) were really cute.

Everyone at the wedding raved at how the cake looked and then raved again when they tasted it. The buttercream frosting was so creamy and even better with our graham cracker crumb "beach sand." Both the red velvet cake and the lemon cake (yes, I had two pieces) layers tasted wonderful.

Amanda Oakleaf and team are a very talented bunch. If you want something special to make your occasion even more memorable, I think you should give them a call.

We had Amanda Oakleaf create a cupcake wedding tower for us with a square topper and caricatures of my husband and I on top. They were the most delicious cupcakes/cake I've ever had at any event--and I'm proud to say it was my own. The adorable caricatures were so spot on and so fabulous. The cupcakes were absolutely scrumptious and the entire thing a huge hit. The topper, decorations, and entire cupcake tower were so perfect and so us! They did an amazing job of capturing us and the sentiment we were going for. I should add that all the cupcakes were consumed! Yum! More...

Cake was DELICIOUS, moist, very fresh tasting, and everyone raved about it.
They make there own marshmallow fondant, which was superb, not overly sweet like most. And the icing was so smooth and blended so wonderfully with the cake itself.
Our cake tasting was a lot of fun, and Ms. Oakleaf was entirely pleasant, insightful, and communicative about what she could do and what would work and wouldn't physically.
As far as the design goes...it was not exactly what I thought it was going to look like, however I did say to them when they were very patiently explaining the design that anything was fine, and from the portfolio we trusted them completely. I did connect the design with the rough sketch, and it was very nice, however I feel it was a little pricey for the design we got.
But for the record, it was probably the best tasting cake we have ever had, and we eat a lot of cake. A lot.

To anyone looking for the most spectacular wedding cake of their lives, Amanda Oakleaf Cakes delivers. We had two cakes made for our wedding event. One more traditional three-tiered cake and one specialty cake consisting of a scene set in the Grand Tetons National Park with figurines of ourselves, and our two dogs, hiking. Not only was the professionalism beyond appreciated the cakes were better than we could ever have imagined and tasty too! We got so many positive comments on our cakes of guests wanting to know who did them for us and how we found them that we just started handing out Amanda Oakleaf's notecards with the information on them during our reception! I would truely recommend using this vendor to ensure that your wedding cake dreams come true. More...

My husband and I had some specific ideas in mind for our Red Sox/Yankees themed wedding cake and had struggled to find a baker that could turn our ideas into cake. We met with Amanda and were delighted not only by the taste and quality of her cakes and frostings, but also by her enthusiasm to work with us. The cake turned out amazing and was the talk of the wedding. We wholeheartedly recommend Amanda and her team and will look to her for future cakes as well. More...

I had Amanda design a custom wedding cake in the shape of an airplane as that's where my husband and I met. You cannot believe this cake, it was amazing! This was a surprise for my husband and he was absolutely blown away as were all of our guests.

It was much more life-like than I ever imagined and it tasted yummy...lemon cake with raspberry merengue. The staff was professional and easy to work with and I would use her again in a heartbeat for any specialty cake needs...birthday, anniversary, etc.

It was hard for me to schedule a tasting as I'm not local and there aren't weekend tastings but Amanda was kind enough to make up a batch of cupcakes in different flavor combinations so we could choose. People are still sending notes about this cake!

Amanda did not make a wedding cake for me, but did design a custom cake for my husband's 40th birthday. He liked it so much he made everyone wait an entire day before cutting in to the cake. The cake design was based on album cover art work for Iron Maiden's Benjamin Breeg Album. I sent her pictures and my ideas for the cake and she made my vision come to life! Our guests were in awe. What an artist! Not only did the cake look amazing, but it tasted wonderful as well! Her cake helped make my husband's birthday party an unforgettable event! I want to get married again
