  • Wanda's Cakes: Artfully Crafted for 40 Years
    Friday, November 18th 2016 - Posted by Karole Risker

    There are many aspects of a wedding that reflect a couple on their wedding day, but one of the most memorable is the cake. A favorite element for the guests, the cake needs to be done well inside and out. From the color to the theme to its tiniest details—the piping on the second tier, or the flowers artfully arranged—the cake needs to stand on its own, fitting in to the theme and matching the mood of the happy day.

    Wanda of Wanda’s Cakes can easily produce a cake that you will be proud of, making it as unique and personalized as it can be. She artistically creates each one using award-winning designs, offering a variety of cake flavors and fillings.

    Some of her past cakes are breathtaking. She created a lavender cake with a dark lavender base, the colors having an ombre effect with the top layer being white. The tiny flowers on top wind their way up the cake with the reverse effect, with the flowers being white on the bottom and becoming a darker lavender the higher they go on the cake. Another cake looks like a castle, complete with a carriage in the middle and towers at the top. Another looks as though it has seashells cascading it. Some are more traditional in nature, with the bride’s flowers artfully and beautifully arranged. Other are not as traditional: one has tiers that look like dice and a slot machine with the words “Married in Las Vegas” at the bottom. Another is comprised of an orange palette and looks lopsided with the happy couple sitting on top feeding each other.

    The only thing Wanda’s cakes have in common is how well done they are and how unique. We think Wanda enjoys these creations as much as her clients:

    “I just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic wedding cake. You totally made my design come alive. Your excitement and enthusiasm for my day was most appreciated. I loved how you were so excited to do my cake. I really appreciated it. Everyone complimented the cake, not only on its outward appearance, but for its taste. The buttercream and the red velvet were just so yummy, moist and delicious!” —Rachel C

    Though Wanda specializes is weddings (don’t forget the grooms cake!) she is able to create something special, too, for corporate functions, birthdays, anniversaries, team parties, holidays, pets, graduations, or any other event that you would like to be memorable. She can put a photograph, corporate logo or drawing on your cake. Wanda has also added offering fruitcakes at Christmas. All of the work she does is custom.

    Wanda has found success in Northern Virginia where she is self-employed. She began decorating about four decades ago when she was actually an elementary teacher and a fellow teacher brought in a cake that she had made. She took the class because she wanted to know how to decorate cakes for her son’s birthday, whom she was pregnant with at the time. Taking one of her classes propelled Wanda and she went from simply learning the craft from a friend, to sending cakes to her husband’s office where they started to place orders. Mostly by word of mouth, she had established a small business, one that worked well for her when she quit teaching to be with her children. She believes her good products and reasonable prices have kept her in business all these years, and she loves the success she finds in thrilling her clients.

    Wanda is simply AMAZING! We could not have been happier with our wedding cake and it was so delicious! Wanda is extremely professional and provides you with great value. She is great with helping you stay within your budget too. She is fun to work with and has so many ideas to share with you that we hadn’t even thought of. Wanda takes pride in making each of the cakes herself and it definitely shows. We are so glad there were a few extra pieces for us to take home after the wedding, its so yummy. :)
    One of the Best Vendors of Our Wedding!

    Wanda was recommended by our venue and was exactly what we were looking for! The cake was absolutely delicious and everyone at the wedding was praising it. All the options we tried at our tasting were great, and all her example cakes were beautiful, with lots of options. Considering this, she's one of the best values you will find in northern Virginia. The price was very reasonable, and she was able to work with us to get us the cake we want in our budget. We absolutely would choose her again if we were able to do it all over.
