Matty Cakes pulled out all the stops for my wedding cake. It looked like the cover of a magazine! It was unique and elegant and tasted amazing. The guests at my wedding all wanted to know where it came from. I couldn't be more pleased with the results AND great customer service! Also, Matty Cakes made an adorable and very creative groom's cake. I was so in love with it, I was disappointed to see the guests devour it. It was sensational!! I would reccommend Matty Cakes to any bride.

My sister ordered my 30th birthday cake in fondant from Matty. The completely messed up the design and colors she had asked for, were rude to her when she picked it up and when placing the cake into her car- dug their thumb into the side (not just a thumb print, but an actual hole). To make matters worse the cake was completely dried out and tasted terrible. I would never recommend their cakes to anyone.

We recently ordered a fire truck birthday cake for our youngest son and were delighted with the result! Rather than simply drawing on the cake, Matt and his fellow talented bakers constructed an actual 3-dimensional extra-long ladder truck. It was perfect in every detail from the gumdrop lights to the ladder itself. What truly made this cake special, however, is that our son was actually able to eat it. Allergies to, among other things, eggs, soy and dairy, usually mean that cakes are off limits to him. Matty Cakes had a solution for that too - it seems that their chocolate cupcake batter is free of those ingredients. It was, without exception, the most delicious birthday cake we have ordered in Atlanta! Thank you Matty Cakes for making this birthday a real treat for all of us!

I needed a custom birthday cake, nothing that difficult. I read the reviews on Kudzu, looked at their website and thought I'd get a great cake. To be honest I probably could have done a better job myself. Maybe they make cute cakes as pictured on their website for other people, but they just didn't for me. I'm not sure what happened. Needless to say I was highly disappointed and embarrassed to have to present this cake, but I had no option as I had no time to get another one. I'll won't be doing business there again.

I know this is a bakery, but I haven't had an occasion to order a cake yet from Matty Cakes. What I can tell you is that they have amazing sandwiches. Yummay! They are very creative, flavorful sandwiches that you don't find easily around town. Also, the place itself is super cute. You can watch them bake while you wait on your sandwich. The bakers are alternative looking, yet friendly. The cakes they have on display (LCD screen at checkout) look amazing and very unique. The owner is very friendly even when he is busy...which is a rarity these days. It can take some time to get your sandwich if it's busy, but again you can watch the bakers. Oh yeah, yummay cookies too!

I needed a very specific type of cake for a birthday, and of course with short notice. Several other bakeries in town either shot down my design or told me they needed more time. Not matty cakes, though. Matt gave me the utmost in customer service and was actually excited about the project. The cake turned out even better than I ever could have imagined, and it tasted like heaven. As a bonus, they have yummy sandwiches. I will be using matty cakes for all my special events needs!!!

Rather than a traditional wedding cake we decided to go with cupcakes. After sampling some from several local bakeries I tried a Carrot Cake Cupcake from Matty Cakes. HEAVEN!!! After the first bite I knew they were it. I ordered several of each of their four flavors and put them at each place setting. Guests shared and sampled all of the flavors and raved about how good they were. Carrot was a favorite but the Chocolate wasn't far behind. Yum-O!

Matt's cakes are as delicious as they look. It is so rare to find a wedding cake/specialty cake with fondant that is more than just a pretty centerpiece and for show. I was blown away by his expertise, his professional way of being and his kindness. For all of our events, we will be using Matty Cakes - no doubt about it!!! OH, and did I mention affordable?? He is very competitive with other cake decorators in town. Don't waste your time with anyone else - Matt is the one!!!
