Amanda Keeney has been making my families cakes and goodies for over 3 years now and I have not once ever had the very slightest disappointment with her products! Three years ago a ex-coworker of mine referred me to this young aspiring local high school student who had a passion of making cakes right in her own parents kitchen. I was on the hunt for my son’s very first birthday cake and I had a specific vision in mind (Mickey Mouse was the real deal then with my son) so I wanted a cake that showed that! I reached out to Amanda via email and within the hour had not only a response of her availability but choices to chose from, different flavors and filings she offered and additional ideas she had come up with for my theme as well as pricing all in her first email to me (my first thought “well that just saved me a lot of back and forth email writing and questions”). Being a young mother I always live with a budget in mind and the price of an item is always the determining factor for me, however that was never a factor when it came time for me to reach out to Amanda, her prices for the quality work she delivers is out of this universe affordable! Not only has Amanda done my son’s birthday cakes for the last 3 years now (different and amazing theme each year) but we love her work so much that we asked her to create the cookie favors for the guests at our wedding this past August 2013, every guest not only raved about the cookies appearance (detailed with handmade edible flowers and vines and our monograms were the design) but the taste of the cookies were delicious! Amanda has created about 5 birthday cakes for us now (including my husbands birthday cakes) as well as the cookie favors for our wedding and she created a cake for our nephew getting his first job (Buffalo Wild Wings Cake). I have recommended Amanda’s services to dozens of friends and co workers and each one of them have placed one or more orders with Amanda already and all of them call themselves returning customers of hers.
Not only is Amanda’s work absolutely exceptional and delicious but her personality and strive to reach her dreams just beams out of her when you meet her. She is one of the most darling and sweetest young women I have ever done business with and I am so glad I can call her more than our magical baker but also a very close friend now. If you’re reading this testimony and by now you’ve probably sat here for about 5 minutes hearing me rave about this outstanding woman, please take my advice and contact Amanda, I am 100% certain you will be so glad you read this testimony!

Upon my mother-in-laws 80th birthday in March, there was no question as to who we wanted to make her cake -Amanda. My mother-in-law loves chocolate so we requested a two-layer sheet cake with her buttercream icing. It was delicious! All of our guests at the party raved about it with many taking “just a small piece” home. They were all surprised that an entrepreneur so young had made it. I will recommend her services to anyone in need of a cake for my occasion.

I have ordered numerous cakes from Amanda, I always look for an excuse to have one and can’t wait to order another! Mmmmmmm, They are so beautiful too, you don’t want to cut them, but you have to because the taste is irresistible. I highly recommend her to everyone I talk to.

“Cakes by Amanda are the absolute best. I had asked Amanda to make three cakes for me. The first for my daughter’s 19th birthday, I simply told Amanda what I was looking for and she provided the most perfect cake ever. She not only designed a cake but she also invented a new flavor. The second cake I needed was for my husband’s birthday, I told Amanda I wanted a leg lamp cake (from the Christmas Story Movie) and she more than out did her self, the cake once again turned out perfect, it was a big hit and my husband adored it. The last cake I ordered from Amanda was a retirement cake for my boss. He is a Vegas lover and Amanda created the most perfect cake for his retirement party. He took so many pictures of it so not to forget it. I told my family the only thing I wanted for my birthday this year, was … yep you guessed it, a cake made by Amanda. I more than recommend any cake by Amanda, her creations are wonderful, tasteful, stylish and fitting for any occasion.”
