Southeast Ohio Wedding Cakes by Heavenly Confections, Athens

If you happened upon this page, I just want to say that the emails I receive from clients are more precious than anyone could imagine. With every cake that I make, all of my attention to detail for superior taste and design go into each crumb. However, I am always striving for perfection and always wondering if I will 'hit the nail on the head' and please my client. So when a client takes the time to send me a note, I am ecstatic!

When you order a cake from me, you are basically getting a personal chef/baker that puts all their time and skill into your cake alone. Each cake is practically a "baby" of mine and I am always tickled to hear how happy it makes you too!

I wanted to tell you how wonderful the wedding cake was! So many compliments on it from how gorgeous it was to it is the best cake I have ever eaten! I thought you did an absolutely beautiful job incorporating all the flowers. Justine and Brandon were very pleased with the cake as well. Thank you for helping to make their wedding a perfect occasion!

We used HC for our wedding and couldn't be happier! My husband actually hates cake, but HC's cakes are so good that he loves hers! They're so delicious and moist! Here's what we loved: 1. We ended up doing a 2 tier cake for us to cut into, 4 bakery style cakes, and 6-7 dozen cupcakes to feed around 200 people. Each cake and each dozen of cupcakes had their own unique cake and icing flavor combinations. HC made this tall order for us on the busiest wedding day of the season without any problems!!! 2. They were transported to our venue 2 hours away from her bakery with no problems and for only $50! 3. At the venue, she arranged the cakes and cupcakes on the table we left for them beautifully and flawlessly! 4. There are SO MANY different flavor options, and that made customizing our order and choosing combinations so much fun! 5. Not only did they all taste good, but they looked beautiful as well! You can tell she puts real time and special care into her creations and thats what makes her and her cakes truly special! 6. You CAN'T beat the cost! Thanks to HC, we had insanely delicious, quality cakes for 1/2 the cost it would have cost us to use someone in Columbus. She's worth so much more than she charges! In all, she is truly someone with true skill and talent. You won't be disappointed!

I just want to start out by saying Cheryl is an amazing baker and a wonderful person! I could not have asked for a better experience when I was searching for my wedding cake. Her cakes are hands-down the best in town and maybe even the state. Just amazingly delicious and ABSOLUTELY beautiful! She even made the little bride and groom pugs I wanted to put on top of the cake. Everyone at the wedding loved the cake and cupcakes as well. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
- Kari Knable

She made my wedding cake for me. I feel terrible that it has taken me so long to review! I had no idea what I wanted so i sent some pictures of things I liked and she created the most beautiful and delicious cake I have ever seen in my life. I recommend her to everyone!
- Sena Lott

I was so excited to find a baker in South East Ohio that could deliver a wedding cake to meet my expectations. Our wedding cake was so beautiful and exactly what we wanted. I surprised my husband with a groom's cake made in exact detail of his '72 Chevelle. My husband was so surprised as was I with just how amazing the cake looked. Oh, and both cakes were delicious!! I am looking forward to my next cake order! Heavenly Confections was so easy to work with and can truly deliver quality cakes. Gained a life long customer

She did our wedding cake and we absolutely loved it, flavors were great and the design was exactly what we wanted.
- Kaitlyn Stone

Just a quick note to let you know how absolutely thrilled we were with the wedding cake. Not only was it gorgeous, it may be the most delicious cake I've ever eaten. Everyone was very impressed. My brother said, "I didn't know wedding cake could actually taste GOOD". So glad you were available to make it, and lucky we found such a talented baker! I'll recommend you to everyone. Thanks so much.

I cannot begin to thank you enough for going out of your way to do the Baby Shower cake. The cake was absolutely beautiful and it was the talk of the shower!! Outside of the beauty of the cake the taste was absolutely devine!! It is so obvious that you take much pride in your business and God has truly given you a gift!! Everybody loved it and wanted to know where I got it. I proudly bragged about you and your business and many people walked away with your website information. I made sure that they knew that you do more than just wedding cakes and recommended that they visit your website to check out your information and to view your cake gallery. I hope you receive alot more business from this event.
You definitely chose an appropriate name for your business. I saved my piece of cake for later in the day when I was back at home so that I could enjoy it in peace & quiet. I'm so glad I did. It was truly heavenly!! I savored every bite!!
I'm so glad I found you and I intend to do alot of future business with you.
Once again, thank you so much for taking the time to fit my cake into your schedule. I feel truly grateful for finding you and your business.
Bless you!!

Cinderella Inspired Ivory Wedding Cake with Monogram & Turkey Groom's Cake

It was better than I imagined!! You designed it perfectly - just what I wanted!! - Words can not even describe how happy I was in the service, quality, professionalism and value I found in Heavenly Confections. I met Cheryl at a Bridal Fair and right away I knew her business would be the one I chose. Not only did she surpass my expectations in my wedding cake (an originial design), but she created the most elaborately detailed turkey cake for our groom's cake that is still the talk of our small town. EVERYONE should choose this business for their cake needs. Oh and I haven't even told you about the taste - all I can say is wow. My guests all say it's the best they have ever had. Well worth the value!!

We contacted Heavenly Confections last minute for a character cake when the 3 year old birthday girl asked for an Olivia cake. Graciously Cheryl squeezed us in and made us a BEAUTIFUL two tier confetti/chocolate cake (I've been lucky enough to taste several flavor sand they have all been absolutely delicious). She even accommodated a guest's red dye allergy with dye free vanilla cupcakes. I would highly recommend ordering from Heavenly Confections. Thanks again Cheryl!
