Dessert works has been my go-to bakery for any cakes I need for special occasions. Their staff is always prompt and helpful with any order that you need to make and have always done a top notch job with all the custom orders I have placed. I've ordered from them for my bridal shower, gender reveal party and baby shower.... More

Always get my special occasion and birthday cakes here. It is expensive but if you want a quality custom decorated cake you will not be disappointed.

This the #1 place for cakes. I had my engagement party cake here and then my son's shower cake and his 1 year birthday cake. It is truly the best cake shop in all of Boston.

I love this place, always great service and I can't still pick my favorite dessert! The coconut cake , the red velvet, the chocolate and vanilla cupcakes are fantastic and always fresh. The sugar cookies are always a hit in my house. They make other desserts and tarts but the space is limited here! Great place to try!!

The cakes, pies and pastry are all so good. Everything is as it should be -- pastry is buttery and flaky, cakes are moist and flavorful, and pies have perfect crust and fillings.

This is just a neighborhood gem on Rt 1 in a Westwood strip mall. Easy to overlook, but it is a staple for our book group desserts and our go-to place for birthday cakes. They made my daughter's wedding cake and it was not only spectacular to look at but delicious to taste. The people couldn't be nicer and easier... More

Soooo good. Got many of their smaller desserts for a gathering. Got rave reviews from my guests!!! I had tried a chocolate cake from them previously and had not been as happy. Glad I went a second time. I can't wait to visit again.

We purposely went here to check them out as we were looking for a wedding bakery for our wedding cake. All I can say is WOW. We didn't let them know we were coming and actually our tasting is booked for September but we wanted to do a uncover operation. We arrived at the end of the day and took... More

Yum, yum and yum! I was in the plaza to stop at Lambert's food market and couldn't resist checking out Dessert Works. What an amazing selection! My friend and I honestly stood there staring for at least five minutes. Luckily, they had free samples out which helped us decide on a piece of Tiramisu and a piece of eggnog cheesecake... More
