Aloria Cakes: (646) 396-9837

Aloria Cakes thinks that choosing your cake should be the most fun and least stressful part of your journey. It is, after all, dessert, and dessert should always make people happy! They guide all clients through the cake process, from helping you choose a style (fondant or buttercream? What’s a naked cake? Should we use fresh flowers or sugar? How many people actually eat the cake? Can I serve cupcakes instead? What’s hot and trendy?), to providing tastings and answering any questions you have about all things cake.

Tastings are 45 minutes by appointment only and cost $50. Should you choose to book with them, that fee will be deducted from the final price of your cake.

Pip n Bits specializes in unique, custom cakes. They recommend beginning the process three to eight months before your wedding, but to still inquire even if you are not within this time frame. They offer a personal consultation and tasting of 4-5 samples for a fee of $45. Every sample is baked especially for you. They will send you a flavor list before your tasting, but if you don’t see a particular flavor, just ask, they can most likely make it for you!

Cakes by Nerwan’s process is fairly simple, saying they like to understand exactly what the couples are looking for and bring that vision to life! They also recommend reaching out at least three months in advance to make sure the date has not been booked, the earlier the better. Regarding flavors, they love to cater to any flavor request. They’ve done crazy flavors like a gummy bear-stuffed wedding cake to a giant handmade Peep (see above!) to Sour Patch Kids & Flaming Hot Cheetos. Whatever you’re thinking, if feasible, they will make it happen! If you want to go more traditional, the most commonly ordered flavor is lemon cake with vanilla buttercream & raspberry compote.

Comfortland

If giant, fluffy doughnuts and rainbow cookie crumb cake are more up your alley, Comfortland caters desserts for weddings and events! They have packages available for large parties, and even their Comfortland Donut Wall is now available to rent. Just send them: # of guests, date, and what kind of desserts you are looking to offer, and they’ll get back to you with their options. Inquire here.

Caterers

Though of course many venues offer catering and there are specific catering companies, your favorite local eatery might just cook for you on your special day! These are ones that advertise wedding catering or that we know people have used, but if you’re having a small wedding try reaching out to your go-to spots to see if they will cook for a crowd.
