Catherine baked my mother's 90th birthday cake & she was prompt & professional. Words cannot relate the great taste of the cake and it was designed superbly! Mother loves to crochet & knit - I left the design of the cake up to Catherine who put two different colors of icing, made like balls of yarn and golden needles. The cake was so eloquent - made like a weaved knitting basket.Simply delicious and extraordinary. I highly recommend Cakes by C to anyone planning a special occasion. Our guests were very impressed & many asked her for business cards. Her prices r very reasonable. I felt like I was hosting an Oprah held event and the cake was the biggest hit! Never tasted a cake as good as the one she made for my mother. I believe Catherine puts her heart & soul into making sure her cakes are heavenly. As a former Asst. Dir. of alumni affairs for a major univ. I have high standards of entertainment and food preparation. Cakes by C are the best in Georgia and I will use her services for all my future events. - Happy in Fairburn, GA

I went to Mrs.C for a cake tasting for my upcoming wedding. My husband and I fell in love with the cake and her spirit! I got pregnant not 2 weeks after the tasting so instead of making my wedding cake she made my baby shower cake. I only had an idea and she was able to pull it out of my head and turn it into a beautiful, delicious, cake. Everyone loved it, I even have some friends who posted the pic on they're Facebook page. I love the service, the cake was awesome, and I plan to have Mrs. C do all my cakes from now own!

I have used this pastry chef for venues to numerious to mention. Mrs.C has been consistent in her product and service. Upon seeing a negative review concerning a wedding cake issue, I have a pretty good idea that this person had nothing to do with the true client that was serviced by Cakes By C. Catherine has personally delivered her wedding cakes across to Alabama, up to Detroit over to Washington D.C. and back down to North and South Carolina. All venues occuring in a timely manner and consistent with her profession.It is sometimes said that you can please some of the people some of the time but not all the people all the time. Catherine gives 110% all the time. I guess some people desire 111%

She totally forgot about the order and stated she could not work miracles! She finally showed up with a down right aweful cake. She was suppose to have made the Bride and Grooms cake, But as is goes she had to have the money up front. How do you run a business (bakery) and forgot to make your cakes?? Lame and dumb. Now we will see how she willingly she refunds the money. NEVER WILL RECOMMEND HER.

I discovered cakes by C while surfing the net while looking for a bakery to design and make a cake for my Grandmother's 85th birthday. I was captivated by the mouth watering pictures that I saw on the Cakes by C website. I called and spoke to Mrs. Catherine regarding the cake I had in mind for my grandmother. I was pleasantly pleased with the design and outcome of the cake. My family and especially my grandmother were blown away by the beautiful cake that Mrs. Catherine's, of Cakes by C designed. My grandmother was reluctant to cut it because of how beautiful it was. Not only was the cake beautiful that Cakes by C created it was very moist and pleasing to the taste buds. I will recommend Cakes by C to all my family and friends. I have already discussed the next cake that I want Cakes by C to design for my Dad for Father's Day. If you are looking for someone to create and bake your next cake look no further than Cakes by C Janice Mitchell of Conyers Ga

The cake that I ordered was to live for, and I have been referring my friends and family to Cakes By C for any occasion possible. My friends and I enjoyed the "melt in your mouth" Red Velvet cake. I am not even exaggerating when I say that the cake and icing became missing in my mouth after each bite. I tried to savor it, but my taste buds wouldn't allow it. I'm calling my peeps, checking the calendar, and waiting for the next opportunity to enjoy a cake by Ms. C.!!!!! Do yourself and your guests a favor and order one. You'll be a customer for LIFE and your event will be a success because of the sweet treats that are prepared with fresh ingredients and lots of love!

Two days before giving a bridal shower for my niece, I asked Catherine if she could make a Armadillo Cake in time for the event. The movie "Steel Magnolia's" is my niece's favorite movie and we always laugh at the Armadillo Cake at the wedding reception in the movie. Catherine said no problem so I emailed her a photo of the cake and picked it up the next evening. It was WONDERFUL!! It looked better than the picture and was the hit of the bridal shower. The cake layers were red so it "bled" just like in the movie -- and it tasted great as well! Catherine really worked hard and it showed in all the detail. Thank you Catherine. It truly was the hit of the shower!!

My sister and I worked with Cakes by C for my parents 40th Anniversary Surprise Party. They incorporated a photo of my parents and captured the elegance of the event in the cake decoration. Not only did it look great, but it tasted wonderful as many of the guests inquired "who made this cake?" They also were thoughtful enough to inquire how to keep the event a secret. My parents' reaction? "It was excellent. What is there to say? Beautifully done, moist and tasty!"

Cakes by C, is by far the best bakery in the Metro Atlanta area, I have been a customer of the owner of Cakes by C, Catherine for the past 20 years, and always get excellent product and service. When I opened my restuarant in downtown Atlanta, I knew the only person to bake cakes and other desserts would be Cakes by C, because of their excellent PRODUCT AND SERVICE. The owner, Catherine is conscientious and always puts the customer first. As a matter of fact I would recommend her cakes to anyone who wants to serve their families and friends with a quality product. I also recommend her to any restuarant who may be looking for a custon baker.

Cakes by C made us feel that nothing was more important than to ensure that they demonstrated patience and provided professional, ethical, supportive services to make the vision for our wedding a reality. C was caring, insightful and made some fantastic suggestions that were incorporated into the wedding. She made several visits to the reception hotel where she met with the hotel coordinator. At the reception, the hotel staff and guests were in sheer awe at the unique design, decoration and taste of our 9ft, five flavor, 8 layer masterpiece, equisitely garnished with crystal, silver and sparkling rhinestones. One guest commented, "When I came into the room, I thought it was a scrupture-I didn't know it was a cake". Months prior to the wedding, we searched from one end of the state to other in search of the perfect baker until we found Cakes by C. We soon discovered that she was consistent in that her cakes are always, unique, TASTE SO GOOD EVERYTIME, moist, beautifully decorated-and that she makes the BEST SUGAR FREE CAKES EVER! Same hold true for our bridal shower cake, the wedding cake, birthday cakes, and other special occaion cakes we have had her to bake. She now my family's all occasion official baker. Once you've tried Cakes by C. you will look no more. She is a baker with character, works to perfection, honest, is knowledge and loves her work.

I found Catherine through Kudzu and asked her to create an unusual cake for a combined baby shower/going away party. Not only did she create a beautiful and unique cake, but she did it on very short notice. Even better, because I lived nowhere near her, she met me at a point between our locations and delivered it personally, even though she had never met me! What a terrific result accompanied by delightful, personal service!
