We used Cakes by Darcy for our wedding reception, and received so many complements. We looked at bakeries all over Atlanta, and even though our event was not close to Roswell, we felt Darcy's was the best choice. Instead of a traditional wedding cake we did cupcakes of multiple flavors. Darcy's offered us a free tasting, they listened to our ideas and incorporated them into our cupcakes and made the ideas even better. People were so thrilled and I'm still getting emails from folks asking me who did the cupcakes on our special day. I highly recommend Cakes by Darcy, and am so grateful a friend recommended them to me.

You can't go wrong with this bakery. We ordered our wedding cake here and it was incredible- absolute perfection- and it was a great price. If you're looking for a special event cake, the owner, Darcy, offers something really unique in her cake designs: she can make a cake look perfectly smooth like fondant, but with tasty buttercream frosting instead of nasty fondant. For my wedding cake, I found several designs in magazines that I liked, including a Martha Stewart design that looked like Wedgewood china. All of them were done in fondant, to give a perfect, smooth appearance. When I asked Darcy about them, she explained that no one eats the fondant, and everyone just removes it (so true), so it's better to just do a really good job with regular frosting. And boy oh boy, did she ever. My cake was gorgeous and delicious. I never found another bakery that could offer this specific design feature, and in general, none of the other bakeries I tried could match her quality and price. I especially appreciated the fact that when I proposed a very complicated design, Darcy made a sample cake for free for me so that I could see in advance how it would turn out. She very willingly spent a lot of time with me on the planning and ordering so we could get it just right. Excellent service here. Also, the everyday items like cupcakes and other small treats are fabulous too.

I have always used Cakes by Darcy for birthday cakes and have paid a pretty penny for them too. I called them to inquire about a cupcake order on a Wed and needed them for Sat. They were going to charge me over $100 for 3 dz cupcakes. They told me that they needed my credit card info to secure the date and that I had to pay a non-refundable deposit. I was not sure if I wanted to pay that much money so I gave her my cc# and told her "if I want to secure this order I will call you back." I did not make an "official order" and only talked vaguely about a design. In the end I did not want to pay that much money and did not call back to place my order. Today, 2 days later, they called me wondering what my deal was. I told her that I chose not to go with them and the girl on the phone was furious! She was so rude and told me that they were already made. What?! How could you fulfill a cupcake order without an actual order or design details/colors? She said they just were not decorated yet. Well, that's a dumb way to run a business if you ask me. That's their fault for ASSUMING that I wanted those cupcakes. Remember, I never actually placed an order. I was only inquiring and out of convenience gave her my cc# in case I did choose to go with them. They charged me for those cupcakes and I am having to dispute this with American Express. They charged me for product that I did not receive or want. If you are reading this please think twice before using them. You will be disappointed.

We asked Cakes by Darcy to make us a tropical-themed bridal shower cake for our niece's bridal shower. We could not have been more pleased -- the staff was wonderful to work with, the cake was decorated adorably, and the cake was absolutely the most delicious (moist) cake we've ever had. All thumbs up for Cakes by Darcy for our family.

As a first time mom, I am looking to throw a "fancy" little party for my daughter's first birthday. I have been searching for weeks for a bakery that could pull off what I had in mind, but the mere rudeness, abruptness, haughtiness of the staff, and snobish attitude I received over the phone,(while I was driving there)was enough for me to turn my car around. And I took my business elsewhere. It's just a disappointment because, I was not only looking for a baker for this one event, I was also looking for "my" baker. The one I trusted would provide me with all of my bakery needs. And would get it right the first time. Unfortunately for Cakes by Darcy, they lost a customer. But if you're looking for a wedding cake, this could be for you.

My family and I have patronized Cakes by Darcy from almost the day the doors opened. We have tried just about everything the bakery has to offer with very few disappointments. The cakes & cupcakes are second to none. Decorating skills are beyond expectations EVERY time. Darcy's has done all my kids' graduations cakes as well as most birthday cakes - sometimes on less than 24 hours notice (thank-you, thank-you!)! The things I really do not like at all are the sugar cookies offered. They are glazed with a very, very sugary coating and then often times decorated with more frosting. Far too sugary for my family and me. Otherwise this bakery is the one you want to visit for special occasions and everyday nights you want to make special. Yummy!

If you are looking for a delicious, elegant and beautiful work of art, call Cakes by Darcy. I have used Cakes by Darcy for my latest parties, (Cinco de Mayo and my daughter's Sweet Fifteen) and her cakes are always the biggest hit at the party. She made a beautiful creation, in black and hot pink for my daughter's Paris themed Sweet Fifteen party and I was surprised at all the calls I got from my guests inquiring about the bakery I used. I will never use anyone but Cakes by Darcy, I highly recommend them for their friendly and courteous staff to their mouthwatering and painfully delicious creations. I love Cakes by Darcy and you will too!!:) Stop searching and call them today!
