I was going for a Flamenco theme for my wedding and I really wanted my cake to look an exact way. I gave them a picture of what I assumed was a complicated design. I was so happy when I saw my wedding cake and it looked exactly the way I wanted it. It really added to my theme. I was so concerned about them getting the design right I wasn't to concerned about what it would taste like. When I tasted the cake I couldn't believe how right they got that part too. I really believe that is the best cake I've ever tasted. Italian cream cake with Bavarian cream filling. I had so many people come up to tell me how delicious the cake was and ask where I got it. I couldn't have been more happy with A Cake Odyssey.

OUTSTANDING!!! The cake was EXACTLY how I imagined it. We cake tested throughout the city and, hands down, no one else's cake compared. The cake tasted absolutely heavenly and it was dense - a sign of a professional cake decorator for sure. We were able to taste a multitude of flavors and spend as much time as needed to discuss flavors and decorations.
When the wedding came near, the decorator herself was willing to meet with me personally to make sure she had the details correct.
When we got to the reception, there it was. Absolutely perfect!!! And our take-home anniversary cake is just as gorgeous ;)

I planned my wedding out of state so I was unable to do taste testing or anything like that which was a bummer. I felt very confident buying my cake here since there were so many great reviews so I went ahead and called! The gentlemen I worked with was very professional and made some great recommendations as far as what type of cake to use, as well as flavors of frosting. My cake turned out beautiful and tasted delicious! I highly recommend this place :)

As a fellow member of the wedding industry, I've known Jim and Karyn of A Cake Odyssey for many years. I knew their cake would taste amazing and it did. What I didn't know was how great their customer service would be. We never had a worry. And, of course, the cake came out perfectly designed -- just like the picture we gave them. We took our topper with us on the honeymoon and even enjoyed some for breakfast the next day!

Our cake from A Cake Odyssey was wonderful!
Since we had never done this before, we weren't sure about a design we wanted, how to do colors, what type of cake to use or any of the basics! But, A Cake Odyssey stepped in to help. They had pictures of almost every cake they had ever done so we got to pick and choose elements of cakes we liked and they showed us how they would incorporate everything we were asking for.
Even better, the cake was delicious! We went really simple because we don't like fruit filling or anything like that and we had heard some bad reviews about fondant. I was dead set on using fondant because it makes the cake look better, so we asked to try some at the shop and it was great!
Everything about our cake came out the way we were hoping and they estimated the number of people it would feed pretty well!

Cake Odyssey provided the cake for my son's wedding a few weeks ago and it was not what we ordered. When we called to complain they told us that we were being "Petty" and the cake was beautiful and that we should not be complaining. The cake was not what we ordered and not what we paid for does not matter what it looks like it was not what we wanted. They do not make good on what they sell you, they lie to the customers.
i used them for my daughters wedding 8 years ago, then they went under the name Unique Cakes by Karyn. Karyn was wonderful to work with. The older gentlemen was not and to tell the Bride that she is "petty" is unacceptable. This is her day and to discount it by tell her she is "Petty" is unprofessional. They should have refunded some money but instead we were lied to and we did not get what we ordered. They are very expensive and not easy to work with. Would not recommend them to anyone. Sorry i suggested them for my sons wedding.

In response to Cake Odyssey response to my review. i have attached the order form. Yes we requested the rolled Fondant and it is on the order form. we paid in full at the time of the tasting, so therefore we expected to have the fondant. Apparently the sales person realized that he made a mistake in the addition on the order form. This was not our problem, he called two days prior to the wedding and said he made a mistake and wanted to charge an additional $200.00 but the order form clearly says what we ordered. Their mistake not ours. We did not request a refund, let them know that they do not do what they sell or order just do what they want. we asked for them to make it right. Bottom line they messed up and will not take ownership to their mistakes.

I went in with a picture of what I wanted and while my cake did not turn out like my original intention, it was still beautiful - and so tasty! My family and I went in for the tasting and had a blast. The cake tasted great and Jim was very helpful. I wanted a sparkly cake (yes I know I'm like a 12-year-old) so I had to look for the ribbon on my own. When I was unable to find what I needed, their team helped me come up with something that was still beautiful (and sparkly)! On the day of, the cake was even better than I remembered!

We were really happy about working with Cake Odyssey. They've been in business for years and it shows. They were professional and accommodating. We changed our cake plan twice (with plenty of time to spare) and they were happy to make the changes. The cake was delicious, well decorated, and moist. Also, we did price shop and they were cheaper than the local competitor.

It is awful to plan a beautiful wedding and have a cake that was not decorated according to the order. My niece ordered a beautiful cake with fresh flowers and scroll designs around the tiers plus ribbon for each tier. She got a cake with only the ribbon on it. So a 500.00 cake was nothing but like a store bought one from walmart.

We never received the flowers to even know were and how many scrolls to put on. I do feel that they should have stated that we refunded 200.00.
And also they should have stated that the taste was excellent as they told me.

I wasn't terribly excited after my husband held out during our wedding planning negotiations for a cake instead of cupcakes, mini-pies, or any other alternative desserts out there. I had been to multiple weddings, and always found the cake to be dry and not all that interesting. Boy am I glad that my husband won this one!

The deliciousness that Jim and his team from A Cake Odyssey served up at my wedding is enough to make anybody want to crash weddings, birthday parties, and other celebrations where their baked goods are featured! The cake was so moist, and the filling so creamy! Even the velvety frosting was smooth and melted in your mouth. The presentation was just as we had described to Jim during our tasting.

My only complaint - however small - is that we felt more like a number than a customer whose business Jim cared about snagging. He was always professional, but we didn't get the sense that he was interested in spending much time with us to win our business. I suppose that with a product as good as his, there really isn't a need to woo their customers as we found other vendors did in this process. That being said, I would absolutely use this bakery's services again. I am already looking forward to eating that slice of cake that we froze for our 1st wedding anniversary!
