Sonja is incredible! She makes the most awesome cakes! Not only do they love fantastic, but they are the best you have ever ate! She made our wedding cake and continues to make cakes for our events. We love what she does. Select her for all your needs!

~Sandy Midyett

Professional company and the best cake in town hands down!

~Kelli Rudert

Sonja is absolutely wonderful! Her cakes are beyond delicious and she pays so much attention to detail. She made our wedding cake, which was such a big hit, and most people went back for seconds until there was nothing left! She also made our anniversary cake to resemble our cake topper from our wedding, and she nailedthat too! Another thing I love about her is: when I called her 5 years after our wedding, I only talked to her for a moment and she not only remembered me…she remembered details from my husband and I’s special day. That is very important and amazing – considering she is ALWAYS busy with multiple customers throughout the year. Her prices are extremely reasonable for the quality of her cakes, and I HIGHLY recommend her.

~Jeff Allen

The cake just made the whole party we luved it so much we didn’t wanna eat it… But we gave in and it was moist and the piña colada filling was yummy thanx!!!


We loved our wedding cake, grooms cake, and now almost three and a half years later our baby shower cake! You are the best!

~Lesley R

Sonja made the most beautiful wedding cake i have ever seen for our wedding. We had so many compliments on it. Not only is she a talented person, she is a wonderful person who came through when our venue decided to take the remaining,including topper, of our cake. Thank you so much!

~Ellyn 2013

My daughters cake was so beautiful and is the best cake I ever had thanks Sonja..

~Tina G

I ordered a cake for my sister’s birthday and was extremely happy with the way it turned out. Not only did it look fantastic, but it was one of the best tasting cakes I’ve ever had. Everyone at the party loved it, even people who don’t normally eat cake. I will definitely be ordering from here again.

~Sara Smith

Sonja made our wedding cake and it was fantastic! I can’t tell you how many people came up to us to compliment the cake that night. Most wedding cakes I’ve tried have been bland and focused more on form than function. Sonja hit both nails on the head: it looked perfect and tasted better. She was great to work with and the cake arrived on time. No problems at all, we highly recommend her.

~Brad P

Sonja did a fabulous job with our cake! We had a four-tier white wedding cake with a square base and round tiers. She decorated it with sunflowers and even matched the “curly-ques” on the cake with a paint color sample we mailed to her! We had a TON of compliments on the cake and every layer tasted delicious! It was fresh, moist and the icing was to die for! Our layers included: white with triple berry filling chocolate with cookies n cream filling marble with coconut filling chocolate Perfection!

~Cassidy C

I have always loved Sonja’s cakes. They taste amazing and are always pretty. But when I walked in to my daughter’s wedding reception and saw her cake I was blown away. It was beautiful, and the detail was incredible. It look exactly the way we had pictured. Sonja, thank you for helping to make my daughter’s wedding day one she will never forget.


AMAZING Vendor!! posted 10/7/2013 Sonja is by far the best in the Springfield area! She created the most beautiful cake I have ever seen for our wedding. She listened to my vision and recreated it in our budget. She really goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. It tasted delicious and people raved about it! She’s the best!

~joverend Wedding

Fantastic Vendor posted 9/11/2013 Celebrations by Sonya is fantastic!!! I had one of the fondant cakes which was delicious. I have never seen a cake so beautiful! The work was out of a fairy tale. If you get a chance to go see them they are definitely worth it!

~Wedding Channel

DELICIOUS! posted 6/20/2013 I had already picked out a cake lady when I met Sonja. One bite of her cake and I quickly changed my mind. Her cake literally melts in your mouth! She has so many flavor options with the most delicious filling. ALL of her filligs are made with 100% fresh fruit! The price for what she did was outstanding. When I went in for an appointment with her I was quickly impressed with the fact that as I was describing what I wanted she begin making a sketch! Before I left I knew the prices, and paid a deposit. She also has great referral kick backs which make it that much better! She delivers but does not cut the cake, however, that was fine as she is more than happy to provide a sheet and diagram of how to cut.


Celebrations by Sonja posted 10/30/2012 Wonderful vendor. Her cakes are to die for and she nailed my design I gave her to the T. Will defiantly use her again!!


Sonja’s was great to work with. The cake was gorgeous and looked exactly like the picture that we showed her as an example. We needed to change the size after we ordered and she made the needed adjustment for us. The cake was delicious as well. All the guests commented on the wonderful fruit filling in each of the layers. Thank you Sonja.

~ Cheryl Wedding

Wonderful!! That is the best word to describe our wedding cake!! This is by far the best cake I have ever had! I love that you get a beautiful cake with a fantastic taste!! Sonja has gained a life long customer!
~ Samantha Wedding

We wanted to make sure we had the best tasting cake at our wedding. We have been to several weddings where the cake was amazing and some where it wasn’t so great. So when we starting looking for our cake, we asked our married friends who they had, and several of them used Sonja! I made an appointment, already knowing we wanted to go with her because we had been in The Wedding Collection. Which is where she is located, and tasted her cake. But after meeting with her to make the plans for the cake, we were sold on her cake. She was flexible and took her time to help us with finding the perfect cake. Book her early, she books up fast!!!

~ Client Wedding

I ordered a birthday cake from Charity for my daughters 9th birthday and let me tell you I am a cake decorator and I was blown away. The attention to detail was mind blowing and the cake tasted amazing! Charity is by fast the fondant queen she is the only person who I would order a cake from if I’m not doing it myself! It was my daughters favorite part of her party thanks!

~Linda Wedding

Sonja Ellis is EXCELLENT! She creates the beautiful, yummy cakes for Springfield Little Theatre’s education events. Everyone is always super impressed with the quality of each cake and the perfect décor! We LOVE working with her and she has been 100% consistent with each delivery or scheduled pickup. I refer her to everyone I know!

~Lorianne Wedding

Choosing a wedding cake provider from another state is difficult but Sonja made it as easy as it could be. We were not able to have the traditional cake tasting, as our schedule of being in town did not match. But my wife was able to stop by her shop and taste the cake of the day, which she enjoyed.

We picked out our flavors and sent Sonja pictures of how we wanted the cake to look. We went a little fancy and had he create sugar gum flowers, as we did not want fake or real flowers on our cake. The flowers were hydrangeas which are very intricate but she did an amazing job creating them. On the day of our wedding she arrived in plenty of time to setup and was in and out before we knew it. It looked and more importantly tasted amazing. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

~Client Wedding

Sonja did a fabulous job on our wedding cake! We just got married at Integrity Hills last week and the cake was the centerpiece display. Absolutely gorgeous!!

We had four tiers– a square base and 3 round tiers. All layers were different flavors. The first tier was white cake with triple berry filling, second tier was chocolate with cookies n cream filling, the third was marble with coconut filling and the top was plain chocolate cake!

We had a ton of compliments on the cake. It was fresh, moist and the icing was to die for!
Sonja was very professional and super easy to work with. I highly recommend her.

~Cassidy Wedding

Sonja makes the best wedding cakes! Ours turned out even better than I expected and it was delicious! My sister used Celebrations by Sonja for her wedding too. My brother-in-law didn’t end up getting a piece at their wedding for some reason so he made up for it by eating 3 pieces at ours. Haha.

~Client Wedding

I wanted a simple cake with lots of silk flowers. Sonja placed all the flowers on the cake at the venue and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the end result. She even took some of the leftover flowers and made a couple other decorations for the gift table. Sonja was very pleasant and professional. The cake looked and tasted great. I’m so blessed to have found her to create this cake! Thank you!

~Brie Wedding

Celebrations by Sonja did an incredible job on my wedding cake! It was so breathtaking and everything I had dreamed of. She created a cake that was exactly what I had envisioned! Not to mention she has the best tasting cakes in the world!! I highly recommend Celebrations by Sonja!

~Julia Wedding

Sonja has the best cakes! They were moist and delicious! She was very easy to work with, too! My fiancé was unable to make the cake test appointment so she sent me home cake for him to try. I changed my design twice and she had no problem changing it! She also came out and set up the fresh flowers on my cake the day of my wedding! I loved working with her and she was very flexible. I came into the shop to pay my remaining balance and found out she doesn’t take credit cards. She had no problem extending the due date and letting me send in a check! I would recommend Sonja and her cakes!

~Katie Wedding

Sonja was great to work with. We didn’t know what we wanted when we first signed our contract. We were able to meet with her again closer to the wedding and we worked out the details. She is not good with email so it was a bit of an adjustment for me (I prefer to have things in writing) but it was not a problem at all. She got our cake and cupcakes exactly right.

She even made suggestions on how to store our cake to eat on our 1 year anniversary. She was patient with us and gave us the time we needed to get our final head count. Her prices are great but the cake is even better!

~Client Wedding

Okay, first thing first, her cake literally melts in your mouth! Not to mention her filling is made from 100% fruit. No gross filler or gel. We had 130 guests show up and the cake served 146. Had less than half the bottom tier left. I was so impressed when I had my appointment with her. I sat down and the minute I started describing what I wanted she began making a sketch. She labeled each layer according to size, flavor and price. It was as if she knew what I was wanting before I had a chance to tell her. The price was fantastic and her delivery fee was so cheap! I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about her and her services!

~Client Wedding

The cake was beautiful and tasted great. Sonja has lots of fillings to choose from. But, the most fun part is that she provides a small anniversary cake!

~Pam Wedding

Sonja was amazing. Our cake was beautiful and everything we wanted! It was absolutely delicious as well! I would recommend her for any special occasion! Sooo impressed!!!!!!

~Anonymous Client Wedding

I ordered a wedding cake and a grooms cake for my daughters wedding. The cake was the best tasting cake I have ever eaten. It was moist and the filling was exceptional. It is 100% fruit not gelatin and melts in your mouth. Sonja was easy to work with and sat down and drew exactly what my daughter wanted. My daughter found a picture of what she was looking for on pinterest and emailed it to Sonja and she designed it perfectly along with my son-in-laws Vikings groom cake. I would highly recommend her to make cakes for any and all occasions.

~Kristi Wedding

Absolutely amazing!! I am in love with my wedding cake! It came out exactly as I was hoping to!!!

~Anonymous Client Wedding

I have been using Sonja for cakes for at least 7 years. She has the most incredible berry fillings! She’s very creative and can come up with just about anything you’d like. She doesn’t use fondant, but it’s much better that way. Her cakes are so yummy!

~Layton Wedding

Best Wedding cake ever! Very beautiful just what we wanted. 6 months after wedding fire destroyed our entire home and our anniversary cake, Sonja, being the amazing person she is recreated the cake from a picture off my cell phone for our 1 year anniversary it was matched exact to our original!! Sonja did not charge us a thing. You will not be disappointed there is not a cake around that can beat Sonja’s.

~Amanda Wedding

Sonja is the best wedding cake decorator in Springfield. I am a cake decorator as well and Sonja is the only person i would let do my wedding cake. It was Beautiful! Thank you Celebrations by Sonja.

~Private Client Wedding

My husband and I were fortunate enough to win an essay contes through the Metropolitan Bride Magazine. Celebrations by Sonja was kind enough to provid us our wedding cake. She is so awsome! She made us a beautiful 3 tier cake with ribbon to match wedding colors at the bases and great detail in the piping. Not only was it beautiful on the outside, but delicious. It was a marble cake with a strawberry cream filling with a yummy buttercream icing. The cake was delivered safely to our venue and we couldn’t have been happier with it. I highly reccomend Sonja for anyone looking for a great cake for any occasion.

~Ashley Wielichowski Wedding

Sonja did an absolutely fabulous job on our wedding cake. I took in a picture of what I wanted and told her what modifications I wanted to make. She drew a picture on the invoice, which made me feel very secure that she knew what we wanted. The meeting took probably a total of 30 minutes, and included a sampling of her amazing cake. I checked in with her a week before the wedding and everything was a go. The time I spent talking to her and dealing with the cake was very minimal and she took care of paperwork, payment and most importantly cake delivery on time. The cake was delivered exactly as described and it was perfect. Even better, its probably the best tasting wedding cake I’ve ever had. I can’t think of a single negative thing to say about my experience, everything was great.

~Mojo Smiles Wedding

I did a lot of taste testing/looking at different vendors for my wedding cake… and I loved Celebrations by Sonja by far the most!! Her cakes are VERY good, moist/not too dry, filling was amazing, beautiful designs, etc!! Only disappointment… I made a small change to the design and e-mailed it to her, but on the wedding day it was the original design. Honestly, I didn’t even complain about it, because I still liked the other design and it still turned out great… and I’m sure if I had, she would have done something to make it right. She was good to work with, and also honored a military discount for us as my husband is a veteran!

~Sara Wedding

Our cake was just beautiful and delicious!! She makes the best cakes in the area!!

~Heather Wedding

Sonja herself was very proffesional and knew exactly what we wanted in our cake. The cake was very moist, and the raspberry filling was handmade and DELICIOUS! I have no complaints about Sonja or our cake. It was perfect.

~Markee Wedding

Best cake we have EVER had! Period. All our guests asked for seconds and I had a second piece myself. I love butter cream though!

Sonja is a great baker. Her store is really fun to look around too.

~Clarise Wedding

Our cake was so beautiful I almost didn’t want to eat it. But then when I tasted it it was so good. Sonja was easy to work with. We took her a picture of a cake we liked. She drew a picture and delivered the cake on the wedding day. Very tasty and reasonably priced. We received lots of compliments on the cake.

~Elizabeth Wedding

“What a wonderful cake artist! Sonja is so good with butter cream that it looks like fondant! We looked at TONS of cake designs before choosing one of her display ones. It was hands down the prettiest design we saw, and she does amazing custom work too. She was also incredibly easy to work with. We just told her the design and colors, our wedding date, and how many we wanted to serve, and she made it happen. We did design our groom’s cake and it came out better than I imagined it would!

She also gives you the top layer of the cake for free so you can have it on your first anniversary. I have read other reviewers say that Sonja could so easily charge more than she does for her cakes, and it is so true. Great value, especially since it is so good. A lot of wedding cakes can be dry, but not this one! It’s such good cake, we will probably have to order birthday ones from her too! Without a doubt, we wouldn’t go anywhere else.”

~Julia Burks Wedding

Sonja makes the best wedding cakes I have ever had! I compare every cake now to her’s and nothing ever comes close! She made me an Eiffel Tower cake (that is where my husband proposed) and it was stunning! I didn’t want to eat it because it was so beautiful…of course we did because it’s too good not to eat! My husband went to many bridal fairs with me over the year leading up to our wedding and it wasn’t because he wanted to spend time with me, it was because he KNEW he would get to sample Sonja’s cake. The top part of our cake was put in our freezer and it’s still good three weeks later! If you want an amazing cake…you have to have Sonja’s!

~Tasha Wedding

Everyone loved our cake! It was a simple design but looked and tasted amazing. Her ability to work with butter cream is out of this world. You didn’t know it was butter cream until you ate a piece because of how smooth the cake was. Sonja was willing to make a groom’s cake for us at the last minute (about two weeks before the wedding date).
~Client Wedding

I generally try to avoid eating most wedding cakes. They are dry and too sweet, but Sonja’s cakes are SO moist and delicious. They are expertly decorated, and Sonja is a joy to work with. The homemade strawberry filling (optional) is fabulous!

~Heath618 Wedding

absolutely amazing wedding cake.. unfortunately everyone else as my wedding ate a lot of it except me and my husband :)!! haha. oh my goodness it is great cake though . and it was the most beautiful unique cake i loved it 🙂 she did a great job.. i am going to get a cake from here from now on.. birthdays etc. :)! so excited.

~Sarah Wedding

I first had Sonja’s cake at a friend’s wedding and I decided then that she would do my cake! She has the best-tasting cake I have ever had. She has many ideas and is very friendly. All you have to do is set up an appointment and come with a style for your cake in mind. If you don’t know for sure what you want to do, she has samples of her work in her store, along with lots of photos of her cakes to give you ideas. She is very flexible and willing to work with your budget and your ideas. LOVE HER CAKES! She also does christmas cakes for me as well! You have to get the layered cake with the strawberry filling…to die for!

~Casey Wedding

I received so many compliments about the flavor and look of my cake.

~Natalie Wedding

Sonja is great to work with! We wanted our cake to be unique, so we cut out pictures of other unusual wedding cakes and showed them to Sonja as examples. She worked with us to create a one-of-a-kind wedding cake that fit our style and budget. And it tasted great, too!

~Janae Wedding

She makes the best cake I have ever had. She made the exact cake I wanted and it was so affordable!

~Aglide86 Wedding

Sonja makes the absolute best cake I have ever had. You know how some wedding cakes are a little dry? NOT Sonja’s! Her cakes are amazingly moist and have this great hint of almond flavor. Her prices are extremely reasonable and she could easily charge way more than she does. She’s the best.

~Elizabeth Wedding

2 years later and I am still getting complements on my wedding cake!!

The best cake I’ve ever had!
~Seorr11 Wedding

Sonja is by far the nicest, most professional person that I dealt with when planning my wedding. She was so helpful in so many ways, even outside of deciding on a cake. She helped make my wedding experience easy and fun. Thanks again so much!!!

~Robin Wedding

Sonja is such a decorator and her cakes are delicious. Ours turned out perfectly and she was very flexible with our design (we had a very original cake). As if that wasn’t enough, she was also the most cost effective of all the baker in our area, by about a dollar a slice! Filling was amazing, she was on time, and so very friendly. We get an anniversary cake from her every year and it is always just as nice and tasty as our wedding cake. We love Sonja!
