"I wanted to thank you for the awesome cake you designed and made for Janan's shower. Everyone wanted to know who made that beautiful cake and the exquisitely crafted and decorated cookies. None of the women seemed worried about gaining weight because they devoured the cake AND the cookies. Again, thanks for everything."

I can't even tell you the number of compliments we received (and happy green faces running around). Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! We were thrilled with everything, from the taste to your amazing artistry to your impeccable service. I have already passed out your info to a number of our guests.

"The cake was amazing and very well received. The face of the cake looked great and the crowd loved it. You really did a terrific job. And, quite frankly, it was the best birthday cake I think I have ever tasted. The inside was good and light, so I was able to devour about 4 pieces. You received a lot compliments and marketing at the party."
— Jonathan Lenzner, Washington Post, Washington, DC
— Marie Stewart, Fairfax, VA
"I wanted to make sure you knew that the cake was a big hit! Both flavors were delicious and moist! Many asked who made the cake and I let them know. Also the Amtrak blue was a big hit. My fingers were blue after cutting the cake for everyone! The cake was a big contribution to our event and contributed significantly!"
— Wendy Seraphin, Amtrak, Washington, DC
— Karla Guzman, Alexandria, VA
"I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the cake! It turned out amazing and I was so happy you were able to deliver it despite the snow (I hope it wasn't too terrible of a day for deliveries). Brian and everyone at the party was absolutely obsessed with it and couldn't believe how moist it was, delicious!"
— Sarah Allen, Washington, DC

It looked great. Everyone just thought it was the cutest! And most importantly, it was delicious! The cake was super moist and tasty. The frosting was light and not too sweet. Just the perfect cake!

"I ordered a cake for my daughter's 2nd Birthday based on Bubble Guppies (children's show) which she is obsessed with :) I picked Chris based on reviews on Yelp and I am so glad that I found him because he will be the only baker I ever use from now on for all special occasions. The cake was amazing! It was so beautiful down to the smallest detail and the cake was delicious. I called Chris about a month before and he had never heard of Bubble Guppies, but he went through the trouble of researching it and got every single detail right, from the colors to the characters on the show. He worked within my budget and the cake was delivered directly to my home. All of my guests were raving about it and asking who made it. Chris - I think you will have some more clients because of it and I will always recommend you :) Thank you so much!"
— Giselle Colavita, Derwood, MD
— Sandra Lara, Adelphi, MD
"Chris is absolutely fabulous! His cakes are so tasty! And his customer service is top notch!
He created two cakes for my sons 5th birthday. One Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cake (special just for my son to cut) and the second a strawberry shortcake sheet cake. The cakes were awesome! I wasn't sure about finding a baker on YELP, but Chris had no problem bringing samples to my office which really stood out to me. I was in contact with a few other bakers who were highly recommended none of which were willing to provide samples and wanted me to trust that their cakes were delicious.
Chris was in constant communication with me and helped to narrow down a concept for the cake. On the day of the party he arrived early to deliver the cakes and was very pleasant. All of the guests at the party loved the cake and commented on how moist and delicious it was! I would use him again and would recommend his services!"
— Elissa Selmore, Kensington, MD
— Lindsey Seelhorst, Arlington, VA
"I just wanted to let you know that I thought the cake was everything I had hoped for and more!! It was the centerpiece of the "gender reveal" baby shower and it came out exactly like I wanted! I will definitely use you again!"
— Erika Matthews, Gaithersburg, MD
— Marcia Hoffman, Olney, MD
"It's been non-stop around here since graduation so I'm finally pinned down long enough to say how O.M.G. AMAZING the cake was!! I swear it was the best tasting cake I've ever had and everyone else said the same! It was just wonderful! I shared your website and contact info with several guests. We will definitely be in touch for our next occasion. Thank you so much for helping to make Bridgett's day a success and just that much more special!!"

"I don't know where to begin to thank you for the fabulous cake for Lane's Super Lawyer celebration. It looked great! It was absolutely delicious! It was the hit of the party! We put it on a high table in the reception area so everyone could see it as they arrived and every single person commented on how great it looked. The super hero image with Lane's face was perfect. We hated cutting into it, but I'm glad we did because it tasted so amazing.
Most importantly, Lane loved it! Everyone asked where I got it, so you may be getting some new customers out of this. Thank you for doing such a great job and for being so generous. I just tweeted about it and will put something on Yelp later today. If there's anything else I can do to help promote your business and spread the word, please let me know."

"Chris, the surprise party was truly amazing and Breona had the time of her life. Myself, Breona and all guests really were impressed with the cake. It was so pretty that we didn't want to cut it, but then again, everyone was dying to taste the strawberry shortcake, and...it was SCRUMPLICIOUS, which is my word for scrumptious and delicious all in one.
I truly thank you for helping to make my daughter's 16th birthday a day that she will never forget. From our first email exchange to the day you delivered the cake, I couldn't be more pleased with your customer service and great ability to design such a beautiful cake that not only looks good on the outside but also taste good...fluffy and moist and not too sweet...just right. Thanks again and you will certainly be hearing from me again."

"Thank you with all my heart for the beautiful cupcakes that you made for my birthday. I was totally surprised, and I think I almost fainted. Not only did the surprise melt my heart (the thought behind it) but you did an amazing job, and they tasted as good as they looked, which is sooo unusual.
I cannot say enough good words about how much a part of my birthday this was. Everyone who tasted them loved them. Everyone who saw the picture loved them. Then I posted it on Facebook and they received more love there as well. I am sure that you get letters like this all the time, and you deserve every one of them. I am honored to be amongst your fans.
The other reason I wanted to write to you, and also why this was so extra special, is because I was told that you had to put your dog down that very morning. :( I cannot believe you still delivered my cupcakes that morning. I just couldn't believe it when Kevin told me, and I still can't believe it now. We had a couple of times that day when we just sat in silence, thinking of your loss, and sending love your way, from our hearts to yours. We were both beside ourselves.
Your hard work, your love of what you do, and your devotion were a huge part of what made this birthday the best one I have had. I will never forget it, and I thank you and honor you for going out of your way and being a part of it, even though you didn't realize you would be. Often times we do not know the impact we have on others. Although I did not meet you, I will never forget you, and I will never forget the kindness and love you put out into the world that day."

"Cakes by Chris Furin supersedes the theory of customer service being the number one priority. I communicated with Chris via email over the course of three months for a cake that I was interested in for my milestone birthday. I received numerous compliments from my guests in regards to not solely the look of the cake, but the quality and taste. Chris Furin personally delivered the cake himself! His cakes are utterly amazing, and I look forward to purchasing cakes for special events soon!"
— Lindsey Batts, Dale City, VA
— Michelle LeBlanc, Gaithersburg, MD
"I just wanted to say thank you once again for the absolutely incredible cake today. I'm just in awe of the unbelievable detail you put into it, and have taken about 4 dozen pictures from every possible angle so far. :) Thank you for going the extra mile to make Alex's birthday so special. You have an amazing talent, and I'm so appreciative to have had the opportunity to work with you on this."
— Casey Fimian, Fairfax, VA
— Brenda Coleman, Derwood, MD
"I attended a child's 2nd birthday party today. The cake was a farm and barnyard with animals around it. Everyone was raving over this cake and it hadn't been cut yet. Once the cake was cut you could taste the greatness of it. I'll need to have a gathering at my home just to order a cake. AMAZING!"
— Mia, Washington, DC
— Christy Chason, Arlington, VA
"Chris, you made my birthday celebration a certified "hit" with my DIVA cake! It captured my personality and was absolutely delicious! Thanks so much for the time and attention you put into my sweet surprise!"

"I just wanted to say THANK YOU for making the best birthday cake ever! We received so many compliments on how nice the cake looked and even more compliments on how wonderful it tasted. The icing was perfect and the cake was so moist and flavorful. It was just the BEST! Thank you a million times over. It was even better than what I envisioned. Great customer service, great product, and wonderfully pleasant to work with. I will be recommending you to any and everyone who needs a cake. You will definitely be hearing from me again."

"My mother's 85th birthday party was a wonderful evening, made even more so by your wonderful devil's food and mocha buttercream birthday cake. It looked elegant and tasted even better. Everyone of our 25+ guests enjoyed it -- especially the birthday girl. (She's still jealously guarding and enjoying the leftovers). One of our guests, the very French sister of an importer / distributor of gourmet baking supplies from Europe, said it was the best cake she has tasted from any baker in America in many, many years. She begged for your name, which I gladly supplied. Chris, many, many thanks for making an important evening for my mother and our family so enjoyable."
— Peter Crawford, Washington, DC
— Mandy Doerr, Arlington, VA
"The Louis Vuitton purse you made for my daughter's 20th birthday was truly a work of art. The red velvet cake on the inside was sinfully delicious. You're a consummate professional and the cakes you create make events more special."
— Susan Carlin, Alexandria, VA
— Meda Moore, Washington, DC
"You did such an incredible job on the DC BRAU - The Public Ale can!! It was more than we could have imagined and it made the launch party so much more special!! It looked spectacular and tasted even better!! Thank you for all your hard work. I can't wait for another one!"
— Rebekah, Washington, DC

“I highly recommend Chris if you are in the market for a custom cake for any occasion. I had a custom birthday cake done by Chris (an Absolut Vodka bottle cake) and it by far exceeded my expectations, as well as served as the conversation piece at my party. Chris Furin is DC’s answer to Cake Boss and DC’s best kept secret.”
— Daryl S., Washington, DC
— Wanda M., Washington, DC
“Chris created a wonderful birthday cake for my husband’s surprise party, and were the most responsive of the four DC/Silver Spring bakeries. Because I was in ‘the other Washington’ during party prep time, I faxed a sketch with details of the artwork I wanted about two weeks before the party. The price was excellent for the high quality and detail of the icing artwork.”
— LJ C., Olympia, WA
— Colin S., Washington, DC
“I ordered a cake for a birthday party - the theme was “My Super Sweet 25.” I wanted that written on the cake in graffiti letters. No one at Safeway or Giant understood my bizarre request, so I had to bring in the big guns for some “Ace of Cakes”-style baking. This is the conversation I had with the person on the phone:
Me: And I would like this all to be graffiti letters and colorful.
Chris: OK, one of our bakers is in a gang, I’ll have him work on it.
Pretty sure he was joking, but the cake turned out beautifully, and it was so tasty! Chocolate fudge, yum. A big hit at the party!”
— Adele C., Washington, DC
— Molly L., Bethesda, MD
“My favorites are the coconut cupcake (yellow cake with whipped vanilla frosting topped with toasted coconut) and the newly introduced red velvet cupcake (red velvet cake with creamy, tart cream cheese frosting). Their strawberry shortcake and chocolate cupcakes are great, too! I come here so often that I will surely have diabetes by month’s end. The prices are the same as Georgetown Cupcake, but the cakes themselves much, much bigger.”
— Caitlyn S., Washington, DC
— Megan H., Washington, DC
“I've been at events that had custom-ordered cakes from Chris and they were amazing! Both were so yummy that I had to try their cupcakes — so far I've only tried their red velvet and it was fantastic. Also, their cupcakes cost around the same as all these designer cupcakes, but are twice the size.”
— Elizabeth C., Washington, DC
