About this pro

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love the creativity that making cakes allows me. One week to the next I'm never decorating with the exact same design all the time. Nor am I baking the same flavor every week.

    I could not be happier with the cupcake dress Megan made for my sister's bridal shower. So impressed by her design, professionalism, budget friendliness and of course the cupcakes, which were delicious. Every guest complimented her work. She made this so easy as I was planning remotely since I don't live in VA. Thank you!

    Megan was so awesome to work with from the very beginning. She was so sweet and quick to respond to all of my emails and even helped me pick a cake stand to go with our crepe cake. We wanted something different than the average cake or cupcakes and Megan definitely helped us pull that off. We set up a tasting and she made three small crepe cakes with three different awesome flavors for us to choose. We went with Nutella and Grand Mariner. I dropped off the cake topper and the stand to Megan the week of the wedding which was a big help to have two less things to drag to the reception site. She delivered the cake directly to the reception site and even perfectly placed the roses we cut and left for her on the table. Our guests loved the look of the cake. It came out exactly as we had envisioned for our wedding.

    Megan designed our cake with perfection, for the day of our wedding! If I could post a picture, I would, but words just cannot describe how pleased EVERYONE was with our selection and with the appearance of the cake. :) Vincent and I want to thank you Megan! :) We will be doing more business with you in the future!

    Megan was amazing. We received so many compliments on both the cake design and (most importantly) flavor. She had some awesome selections (try the pumpkin spice)! She was also highly professional and a great joy to work with on the business side as well. We cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Megan!

    Megan did an amazing job!!! I had a 5 tier customized wedding cake. The cake was exactly like I described and each tier flavor was delicious! My personal favorite was the coconut pineapple. She was easy to work with and flexible to my last min changes. The cake was delivered to my venue and set up perfectly. Thank you Megan!!

    Megan rocks! She did the wedding cake for my recent wedding (just this past weekend). Megan was great to work with from start to finish. We went in to meet her with a very vague idea of what we wanted and she turned those vague ideas into a stunning cake with personal touches. Not only was it beautiful but all our guests raved about the flavors (cookies & cream and strawberry shortcake) too. Thank you for the beautiful work Megan!

    I would give Megan 10 stars if I could! Everything from email communication to cake tasting to the final delivery and product was EXCELLENT. Megan did a great job of helping us find an affordable cake for our wedding that was delicious and beautiful as well. We and all of our guests loved the cake- I kept hearing how perfect it was, very light and airy cake, not too sweet (we chose the coconut pineapple flavor). Megan was on time and was able to set up the cake on site. I can't say enough about how wonderful Cakes by Megan is! I'm very happy we found Megan to make our wedding cake, it was perfect! We'll definitely be ordering another cake from her in the future.

    We've received countless compliments on both the quality and style of our cake. Megan's price was reasonable, even with a delivery fee from Virginia to Baltimore during rush hour, and we are thrilled with the outcome. She was very professional, made great effort to meet our schedule for a tasting, and truly everything was perfect. Hire her to do your cake.

    Megan made a beautiful and delicious, three-tiered wedding cake for me. Even before we met, Megan helped us decide how much cake we needed to serve our guests. We tried out several flavor combinations at the tasting, and picked our favorites for the different tiers. We didn't have a particular cake design in mind, and Megan showed us several different photos and helped us design our cake. The cake was delivered to Alexandria, VA and set up while my fiance and I were getting ready, the only surprise was how smoothly everything went. I'm definitely going back to Megan for my anniversary cake!

    Megan made us a beautiful cake for our son's first birthday! It was delicious, perfectly packaged (very stable!!) and SO cute. We did a blue velvet cake with blue ombre icing, and it looked amazing. Megan was easy to work with, super friendly, and everything was ready on time. I'd absolutely order from her again! Thanks, Megan!!!!

    Megan made a beautiful one tier cake for my wedding. I ordered it one week in advance. She made the cake exactly how I had described it. It was delicious and fresh! The cake was a highlight at the wedding and we received many compliments about it from our guests. She exceeded expectations and her work is very much appreciated.

    Megan was wonderful to work with! She is so nice and made the process of tasting to the final product so seamless. Her cupcake/cake for my wedding was amazing and she put great detail into the work! Everyone enjoyed every bit of the cupcakes! Thanks Megan for your wonderful cake for my wedding!

    I sent Megan a photo of a cake that I liked and she was able to replicate exactly! I received the cake on Saturday afternoon, 24 hours prior to the event, and was concerned about the freshness and if it would dry out. When we went to eat it Sunday afternoon, it was perfectly moist and delicious! Highly recommend the strawberry shortcake :)

    Great speciality cakes by Megan. We have had Megan created birthday cakes of many layers and prints of cards and dragons and the cake choices and moisture has been superb. I would highly recommend.
