Personal Reviews

Emily's cupcakes are absolutely delicious and I have served them at many birthday parties! She is a pro for sure and the only baker I call! Frisky Whisk cupcakes are always a crowd pleaser!! Mmmmm!


The Frisky Whisk did an excellent job catering the dessert at my wedding. I knew I wanted to have cupcakes for my guests and this was the perfect choice. I was able to order a variety of flavors, which was key because I couldn't decide what I wanted after seeing all of the tasty options online. I just told them the where and the when and what types of cupcakes I wanted and they worked with my caterer to figure out the rest. I didn't have to bother with the details, they took care of everything and it was perfect. The guests loved the beautiful display the the flavor options. Did I mention that they taste great?! I still crave the desserts we had at our wedding, so I seek out a Frisky Whisk cupcake whenever I'm in Portland. Awesome!!!


“We here at Angela Adams consider ourselves pretty well versed in cupcake reviews–and if you haven’t tried The Frisky Whisk, it’s imperative you do.”


“The cupcakes are delicious! They’re large, beautiful, perfectly made, and they really are edible works of art, just like the website says. Emily was very accommodating about filling my order on short notice–I’ll definitely patronize her business in the future!”


“Dear Emily, I just wanted to tell you how much the cupcakes were loved at my daughters baby shower. They were gorgeous and delectable!” Thanks, Mary Miller


“Outstanding presentation and simply delicious!”


“Yummmmmmmmy! I can’t wait to try the other flavors!!! These are like mini cakes — moist and delicious.”


"I ordered a dozen blackberry chocolate cupcakes for New Years Eve and they were nothing short of fabulous. Emily was very accommodating and has my cupcake business for life. I've tried other flavors and each one has gone above-and-beyond my expectations. I always recommend The Frisky Whisk to everyone I know who needs dessert ideas for an event!"


“They were soooooooooo gooooooooooooood! Perfect for our office throwing a small baby shower for a coworker. And Emily was a delight to exchange emails with. Thank you so much!”


“The Frisky Whisk has become the front runner for the Portland cupcake scene”

“Awesome cupcakes! If my waistline could afford it I would eat one every day.”


“They were TREMENDOUS! I left the brochure on the table for folks at the gathering to look at, as they were impressed as well. Delicious and elegant!”


“Totally fabulous! Amazingly delicious to eat and beautiful to behold…all that a cupcake should be.”


"I am crazy about the cupcakes Emily makes. I placed my first order using a Groupon back in 2012 or 2013 and was completely blown away. The size & quality were a real surprise and the flavors were incredible. I have ordered at least ten times since then. They have been the dessert for two bridal showers, a baby shower, a wedding, 2 college graduations, birthdays, hostess gifts & Christmas Eve (She even came up with some great holiday themed flavors). A real joy is that she makes them in minis too. These are high end cupcake for sure. I've never had any quite this delicious. The Frisky Whisk offers gift certificates also, which have come in handy for Valentine's Day & stocking stuffers. " -Anita Sherman  


“Great service and wonderful cupcakes. Will be back for more….”


“The Frisky Whisk… is the best!! Beside being delicious, they make a wonderful presentation and if you have an idea for one..Emily can create it! Recently, the Key Lime Pie cupcake was a real hit at a dinner party!! All of the cupcakes are a great way to end a dinner…Also, the minis are a super way to taste the variety that The Frisky Whisk offers.” -Dick and Adele Aronson


“It took one look at the S’mores Cupcakes at the Picnic Festival for us to develop a deep and lasting adoration for The Frisky Whisk!”


“Fabulous cupcakes! Soooo good!”


"I ordered a variety of flavors of some of the best cupcakes I have ever had. Ever. They were a major hit at my wedding! Emily is a rock star and the next time that I am craving some delicious cupcakes you can bet your bottom dollar that I'll be getting in touch with The Frisky Whisk! Thank you so very much for helping to make my wedding so sweet!"


"The Frisky Whisk is amazing! Emily made amazing cupcakes for my husband’s 30th birthday using his favorite Porter. Everyone at his birthday raved about how great the cupcakes were. They were a huge hit! We brought the leftovers to work and received rave reviews from all of our coworkers. I’ve never had so many compliments over cake! Thanks Emily for the delicious memories, I’ll never buy a cake from anywhere else."


Emily - Thank you so much for the Key Lime cupcakes! The lime curd was delicious and they were gobbled up very quickly by the staff. Your baking skills, coupled with your customer service, is exemplary and I am so glad to know you as a phenomenal cupcake resource! Thanks for putting big smiles on everyone's face! What a treat! 


I'm planning a wedding in Maine from across the country in California. Having zero knowledge of the area or where to begin, a quick google search led me to the Frisky Whisk and I'm so glad it did. Emily was easy to communicate with and best of all super accommodating. She agreed to do a tasting on short notice since we'd planned to be in the Portland area that same weekend. My fiancé and I spent the entire weekend in Portland trying every single bakery and shop around, and while I found some decent options, I wasn't really blown away by any of the cupcakes or desserts I'd tried. I'd just about lost hope when I met up with Emily, and everything changed. Every single cupcake was phenomenal. My fiancé who is extremely picky even liked the flavors he normally doesn't (carrot cake, vanilla chai). The cupcakes were BEAUTIFULLY presented, on the larger side, and seriously delicious. We will without a doubt be working with Emily for our wedding, and I can't urge you enough if you've got an event, wedding, or even just want to make someone's entire week -- check out the Frisky Whisk!
