"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!"

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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!"

“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.”

“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!”

“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.”
