How long has your business been in Charlotte? Dilworth?
We”ve been in Charlotte for 6.5 years, but at this specific location for the past 4 years.

Why did you choose Dilworth over other areas in Charlotte?

Toast is so close,so we love stopping over there for lunch. Nan & Byron”s is a new dinner favorite!

What sets you apart from other wedding cake designers in Charlotte?
Our one-of-a-kind designs, attention to detail, sculpted cakes, hand made flowers (amongst other hand made designs), and our customer service!

What else would you like the community to know about Wow Factor Cakes?
We don”t just provide custom couture wedding cakes, but also special occassion cakes (birthday parties, graduations) and a full range of daily desserts.
