Thank you so much for the absolutely beautiful shower cake. It was so perfect!!! Everyone raved about how precious it was and asked where we'd gotten it from. And even more importantly than it being the most adorable thing I've ever seen with a remarkable level of artistic detail and design, the cake was delicious. It was extremely light and fluffy with a perfect amount of sweetness - loved it! Will definitely be ordering future cakes from your bakery :) Thank you so much for everything! Bethany

Just a quick note to say that the chocolate ganache "drummer" cake you made for Alex and Hayley's rehearsal dinner was a HUGE success!  It looked fabulous and tasted even better---we had people coming up all weekend raving about how good it was!  (And my Gluten-free/vegan friends really liked their cake too !). Thanks SO much for making the event extra special and sweet! -Pat F.

"I just wanted to send you a heartfelt thank you! The Bridal Shower was a beautiful event, and the desserts were not only beautiful but amazingly delicious! Everyone was raving about them (I made sure to plug your business at every opportunity I had)! You were a pleasure to meet with when designing the dessert spread, and your staff is truly wonderful. I had the opportunity to interact on several occasions with the staff, and each time was quite positive. Thank you for everything!" ~Melissa I.

"Just wanted to say thank you to you and the crew at the Bean Counter Bakery.  You all did a wonderful job with the Jager Bottle Cake!  Everyone at the party enjoyed all the artistic details, the bacon banner, and how delicious it was!  It was the talk of the kitchen when they were serving it, many didn't want to see it cut up! lol.  Also, Doug doesn't want to throw the leftovers away." ~Melissa (Doug's 40th Birthday Cake)


"I knew how amazing The Bean Counter's cakes are, my husband I come in all the time for your cakes.. and that's why I had you make my daughter-in-law's baby shower cake. The shower was yesterday and the cake was beyond AMAZING. You should have heard the praise, the comments and I think I told about 70 women where they can get cakes that great! The Bean Counter! You are amazing. No one beats you. The cake was not only gorgeous, precious and beautiful, but tasty .. ohmygosh, the taste.. especially the Chantilly cream. THANK YOU, THANK YOU! THANK YOU!" ~Denise B.

"Must tell you that the Elephant theme baby shower cake that you did was GORGEOUS!  And it tasted sooooo good!  Questions were coming at me from all the 20 and 30-something ladies at the shower - where did you get that cake?!?  And I told them with pride:  Bean Counter Bakery in Shrewsbury.  So, hopefully, some business will come your way in the future.  
Truly it was beautiful - it was PERFECTLY decorated!!!!!!  Everyone was congratulating me on having such a beautiful, delicious cake arranged for the shower but I told them it was all thanks to Amanda at Bean Counter Bakery! 
Thank you so much for your patience - working with me long distance to get this cake exactly what was hoped for.  You exceeded my expectations by far!
Your efforts are appreciated and if Bean Counter Bakery ever needs a recommendation, let me know!   Thank you again." ~Nancy M. from Ohio 

"I had to write you to tell you how extremely, over the top - happy we all were with the cake!! Never, ever had any of us had such a delicious gluten-free cake. You would never have known that it wasn't made with white flour! It was so moist and so flavorful!!  The design of the cake was spectacular!! So gorgeous! You took my vision and brought it to life in such a beautiful way. Our party was at Bocado and even other patrons who walked by commented on our gorgeous cake!!  I have some good photos of it that I can send you.  Thank you again for all of your help!  We will certainly recommend you to friends and family." ~Heather (Gluten-Free cake)

"We've made it a tradition with my daughters to get their birthday cakes every year only from The Bean Counter. When I placed the order I was pretty vague about how I wanted Ariel on the cake. All I said was as long as Ariel is on the cake do whatever! My daughter actually screamed when she saw this cake! As always, I'm amazed at what a great job you've done! Everyone at the party and on Facebook wanted to know where we got the cake! Thank you so much! My only complaint...I had to unbutton my pants. Delicious!!!!  ~Dineira W.  

"Thank you for all your help with my daughters cake.  When we brought it out her mouth dropped open and all she could say was "It's sooo beautiful"  she didn't want to cut into it.  Not only was the cake beautiful it tasted out of this world.  We were eating at a restaurant and several people came up to us asking where did we get such a beautiful cake and some wrote down your web site.  Thanks again and I'll be back!
"  ~Carroll

And of course, now that everyone has gotten a taste of your cakes, they are all excited to enjoy our wedding cake on June 1st - as are we!  Thanks again!" ~Lauren & Brendan

"The "CARS" themed cake was great this past weekend.  My son could not keep his hands off of it and loves the sugary momento!  Interestingly, there were 4 other birthdays there and all shared the same theme - so we got to see a lot of CARS cake and loved ours the best ... not to mention it was delicious.  Gave our friends your reference when they asked and attaching a picture for your reference.  Thanks again." ~Monika
