Alessi Bakery was spot on with our wedding cake. It was EXACTLY what we wanted and so beautiful. We were unsure what type of glitter icing we wanted to go with and Melissa was nice enough to make us a sample cake with the three we were interested in at no charge.

Everyone was easy to deal with and they delivered as promised. Not only was the cake beautiful but it was delicious too. We received so many compliments. The only thing was that we rented a cake stand that didn't get delivered but I have absolute confidence that once I contact them in regards to this they will gladly refund the money. It was only $20.00 for the stand rental too which was a much better price than most companies offered.

Chef Melissa did a wonderful job on our wedding cake. We tossed out some ideas and she ran with them. In a matter of minutes, she drafted our wedding cake and we absolutely loved it! The wedding cake was unique and it turned out absolutely amazing. We are so happy we went with this company.

Our wedding cake was stunning! It turned out exactly like the picture that I showed Melissa! She obtained the exact look (typically achieved with fondant), with buttercream. It was absolutely delicious. After trying many flavors (Melissa was so patient with us, she's lovely to work with), my husband and I picked two flavors: pineapple coconut and guava cheese. Everyone commented on how good the cake was. I definitely recommend working with Melissa.

We chose to get both our wedding cake and groom's cake from Alessi because of a prior experience with them and we knew their cakes were absolutely delicious, unlike many wedding cakes. The groom's cake (a football helmet) came out perfectly. I was a little bit disappointed with how the wedding cake looked, however. I had shown the cake designer a picture of exactly how I wanted our cake to look, and although it was still beautiful, it did not have nearly the detail or colors I wanted. I specifically asked for a lace pattern all over the cake and a giant fondant bow, and instead there were simply icing squiggles (instead of lace) and the fondant bow looked a little sad. Further, I requested a cake stand and the cake stand was not delivered, so my wedding cake was displayed on a piece of round cardboard instead. Even so, the prices were great and the cake was just SO delicious, and the tasting session went well.

The cake was gorgeous. It was exactly what we had designed at the consultation. All of our guest are still talking about the cake.. and our wedding was 3 weeks ago. I was completely HAPPY with Alessi’s Bakery because they personalized our cake and made a very special cake for me! It’s called a Smith Island cake, which is from my home state of Maryland. If we were going to have the cake baked and shipped to Florida it would of cost us over a thousand dollars to ship it to Florida. BTW I'm not a cake persona and I ate the entire piece of cake! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing cake for their wedding.

Alessi Bakery was the included wedding cake vendor through our venue, Cross Creek Ranch. Melissa did a fabulous job on our wedding cake, a surprise groom's cake for my husband and a dessert table including assorted cookies, cupcakes, cannolis, and Boston cream pies!!! Everything was so delicious and looked just as amazing!!!! Since the groom's cake was a surprise, we completed the planning via email and it was more perfect than I could have imagined! It was a Red Sox / Patriots cake and since the Sox had just won the Series, she even made a special plaque topper reading "2013 World Champions"!!! Definitely five star service, exceeding even my highest expectations!!!!

Alessi's did a wonderful job on my buttercream 3-tiered wedding cake and tarpon grooms cake! Melissa (cake designer) really does have an eye for detail and created a fantastic cake that was perfect and reflected my vision. I highly recommend the old fashion yellow cake (lots of extra butter and eggs-very rich) with chocolate mouse filling and raspberry filling. The buttercream frosting was so delicious unlike fondant and she used creams, gold, ivorys and peaches. It was very glamorous and elegant. Ladies- if you want beauty and flavor-go see Melissa. You don't have to have the hard fondant if you want gold/colors or ruffles and lace pattern. She can do anything!

We used Alessi Bakery for our wedding cake. I was very disappointed with the overall design. After all the beautiful cakes we saw we decided to customize one, which may have been my fault because I guess I was envisioning something different than what the final product was!
We had picked a design and altered it to have orchids on it, as that was our flower of choice. Well the orchids came back as cutouts affixed to the cake, rather than done in frosting... it just looked weird. But the taste of the cake was amazing!

Melissa was extremely flexible as far as meeting with me, she even meet me one day before work to accommodate my schedule!

I don't have words with which to express how unbelievably and AMAZINGLY beautiful our cake was. Our cake table was the center of attention. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect our cake to look THAT Perfect! Also, the price for the cake, delivery, flowers on the cake, ribbon, etc. was incredible!! .. It was less expensive than a cake from Publix! Alessi also did our edible wedding favors - Yum!!

Melissa, you made our day unforgettable with that masterpiece of a cake.
THANK YOU SO MUCH ALESSI BAKERY! Grateful & in Awe!

Our cakes were beautiful and tasted wonderful. The only negative critique I would make is that they forgot our wedding topper and did not even contact us about it. We noticed its absence and when we got back from our honeymoon had our wedding coordinator find out what happened. They did not offer to send us the cake topper in the mail to be more convenient for us. We had to go to them to get it and when we got there it was not marked with our names. After about a 30 minute search by the employee at the bakery and a call to the baker (who did not answer the call) we finally found the topper marked with the location of where our wedding had been not with our names.

We ordered a standard 3-tier cake and it cost approximately $330, which I found about average for custom cakes. Melissa (I think that was her name) was easy to talk to and seemed to understand what we wanted. The tasting went well and we left happy. We called to make one change to the shape of the base and they were perfectly fine with it. Delivery was on time and they left some take-home boxes, which were very helpful at the end of the night. The only reason I gave them 4/5 is because I believed my vision for the cake was well understood, she was given several examples of what we wanted and the invitations for the correct color scheme, but the flowers seemed too big for the cake, the sugar balls too few, and the color scheme was definitely off. There was also a bit too much icing on the cake, but beyond that it tasted very good. The biggest disappointment was the color scheme being too purple rather than a pink-purple because no one else noticed the scale of the decoration, but they did notice dark purple decorations when there was no dark purple anywhere else.

Despite the fact that the delivery person left my cake topper behind at the bakery (luckily I had a back-up), and we had a few complaints that one layer of the cake was a bit dry, the cake itself was beautiful, delivered on time, and tasted great. The bakery was also very quick to make up for the dryness and forgetting my topper; we had a resolution the very next day.
I've always been a big fan of this bakery, and they are a favorite in the Tampa Bay area, so I would highly recommend them for any baking needs.

My wedding cake was absolutely beautiful. They are so flexible as to what kind of cake you want, filings, decor. Whatever you want, you get! The cake tasted amazing! Alessi has earned my business far before my wedding! I've went there for everything from cupcakes for the office, to my groom's cake, bridal shower cake, etc! I will not go anywhere else! Service was fantastic!

We had our wedding at Cross Creek Ranch in January of this year. We met with Melissa at Alessi's Bakery in Tampa a few months ago to discuss our wedding cake options. We had already decided that we wanted a wedding cake where the bottom layers consisted of cupcakes. Melissa brought us delicious samples of the different types of cake they offered and made some very good suggestions. We decided that the cupcakes would be chocolate with chocolate frosting, vanilla with vanilla frosting, and carrot with cream cheese frosting. In order to stay consistent with our theme of nature, trees, and browns and greens, the vanilla frosting was dyed green. For the top two (non-cupcake) layers, we chose chocolate cheesecake and hummingbird cake. At our initial meeting, we mentioned that we wanted a tree as the decoration on the cake (brown branches and green leaves). When we saw the cake at the reception for the very first time, it far exceeded our expectations! There was one large tree on each side of the cake, partially wrapping around and across the top two layers of cake. The wedding cake fit perfectly with our theme, and both cakes and the cupcakes were delicious.

We thank Melissa and Alessi's Bakery for making a wedding cake that far exceeded our expectations!

I ordered a cake and bride's dress shaped cookies from Alessi Bakery for my daughter's Bridal Shower. They were both gorgeous and they tasted delicious. I received many compliments on them and my daughter absolutely loved how they tied in with the decorative theme of the shower.

I had emailed, Melissa, the cake designer, a copy of the invitation to the shower and she was able to make the cake look exactly like the bridal dress on the invitation. She decorated the cookies with the same colors and flowers on the invitation, as well. I would highly recommend Alessi Bakery to anyone as it is a step above any other local bakeries.

We went to a lot of cake tastings and Alessi had the best tasting cake around!!!! The guests raved about it. Melissa, the cake designer, did a really great job. She was very flexible...we probably made changes to our original contract four different times. At times it took her a little longer to respond to emails and such, but she responded quickly after follow up emails. My only complaint was that the cake was delivered without a cake stand that we had originally paid for. However, when we informed Melissa, she was very apologetic and refunded our rental in a timely manner.

Alessi Bakery created an amazing dessert table for our wedding, instead of doing the traditional wedding cake. My husband and I don't really love cake, so we wanted to do an assortment of pies, desserts and a smaller cake for cutting. The desserts were such a hit at the wedding! Everyone loved everything that they tried, especially the Ohio buckeye candy :) The staff at Alessi was very helpful and flexible, and I don't have one complaint!

Alessi's Bakery was great. The cake that they made for us was not only beautiful but also was great. We sat down with the baker and had a cake tasting. My husband and I both LOVE chocolate but we were unsure about having a chocolate cake for the wedding. We didn't think that it would be traditional to not have a white cake. The baker told us, 'It's your wedding. You should have the cake that you want." So we did, we got a chocolate cake, but the outside was white with the same design as my wedding dress. We were so pleased with the cake.

Best wedding cake I've ever tasted!!! The cake was absolutely beautiful, and exactly what I wanted. During the complimentary tasting, I brought in a picture of the look I wanted, and the end result was even better than the photo! People raved about the flavors and the moistness of the cake. Each of the four tiers were a different flavor and filling combo, and we loved everyone of them! The ribbon I requested was a spot on color match, and the brooch they used was perfect. Highly recommend!

Melissa was really great when we met with her, and helped us pick out all of the desserts. Everything was delicious on the wedding day, the cupcake stand they built was great, and I didn't worry about a thing.

Alessi's was freaking amazing! First off, the cake was out of this world! We ended up with a crazy concoction for our top layer... raspberry swirl cake, peanut butter mouse, chocolate cake, peanut butter mouse, and raspberry swirl cake on the bottom!

First, yes, the cake was delicious- it would be 5 stars if that was a rating option. Second, yes, the cake was pretty, but it was not the design we specified.
The initial consultation went well and we were offered multiple flavors, sizes, designs, and fillings. We were impressed, but never spoke with Melissa in person. We specified that the scroll design only be on the sides, with a crisp edge (the corner joining sides and top) with no design on the top of each tier. We requested that our monogram be in ivory, the same as the rest of the cake. We were told that Melissa "will know what to do".
As other reviewers reported, the customer service was poor at Alessi. It took multiple phone calls to reach Melissa (after we had put down the deposit), and when I left messages (with other staff members) she never returned them. A few weeks before the wedding, we called Melissa and requested flowers between each tier of the cake- an extra $80+, which we paid.
When the cake arrived at the reception venue, there were no flowers, except those on top, which were included in the base price. There was scrolling on all tiers- sides and tops- with rounded edges. The monogram was purple.
When we called about getting a refund for the flowers, Melissa said there were flowers on top. Again, those were INCLUDED. She then tried to say that the lady we spoke with about the flowers no longer worked there and she didn't know about them. (Untrue since we spoke with Melissa and were charged for the flowers.) When we explained that the design was also wrong, she finally said she would refund our money for the flowers and give us a free birthday cake or 1-year anniversary cake. In the end, we were satisfied with her offer, but why the hassle?

Alessi's Bakery is probably the best bakery in town in terms of taste and quality. When I'm in the Tampa area I usually make a special trip for lunch and treat. So I knew I wanted to have them do our wedding cake. The planning session and everything else leading up to our wedding seemed good, but to be honest I was a little disappointed on the quality of the cake and cupcakes I ordered when I saw them delivered the day of our wedding. It seemed like a rush job. Granted I did get married on 10/10/10 and I'm sure they had other orders to fill so respectively I can understand some flaws. Our chocolate ganache cake was lumpy around the sides with a very plain quickly drawn on pattern. Our cupcakes were the wrong color green frosting and some missed out on the sprinkle fairy. Thinking now i should have gone with publix, I would have gotten better quality for about the same price. I will still go to Alessi's in the future, I just wont have them cater any more of my events in the future.

I was very disappointed with my wedding cake. The cake not only arrived late but also was not what I had ordered. The week before the wedding I was unable to reach the baker to confirm my order and was dismissed promptly by a sales associate. The cake tasted good but the stress of almost not having a cake and the different coloring made this experience my last with Alessi's bakery!

Alessi bakery was fantastic from start to finish when it came to our wedding cake! Melissa sat us down and had us go through their albums of wedding cake pictures. Once we found the one we wanted she very patiently made the changes we requested and was great with explaining the cake flavors that would be best for us. Taste testing was fun and the options really are endless. On the day of the wedding I can't tell you how beautiful the cake was, all my guests commented not only on the design but on the flavors as well. My husband is as finicky as they come when it comes to taste and he adored the cake! We had three layers and went with different flavors on each. Alessi's level of service is outstanding and I highly recommend them!

I bought my cake from Alessi Bakery. It was a toss up between Alessi Bakery and Publix. I am so glad that I went with Alessi Bakery. My cake was so beautiful. This was the least stressful thing I think I dealt with. I set a FREE cake tasting, looked through their books, told the designer what I would like, she sketched out a design and it was perfect. It was 3 tiers. We were able to pick out a different type of cake for each tier. The cake was so moist and everyone loved it. And for the price, I couldn't pass it up.

Alessi was a pleasure to work with during the design phase and provided lots of choices - which was a huge benefit since I didn't know where I wanted to begin with the cake. On the big day, they were professional in their delivery, the cake looked beautiful and all went well. My only constructive feedback is that there was way too much icing on the cake. Guests complained that while the cake tasted good, again, they had to get through 2+ inches of icing to get to it.

Alessi was the third place we went and honestly my parents and I were arguing whether to do fondant or buttercream. Well my dad had gotten to the appointment first and explained the whole thing to Melissa. When I got there she had already had a plan mapped out to see fondant pieces on the buttercream cake. Not to mention their portions were two times the size of publix and the princess cake was the best!!!

Our wedding cake was soooo good! I cannot wait for our 1 year anniversary so I can order a replica mini-cake. They also did our grooms cake that tasted wonderful and was way larger than I ever expected. My only complaint was when I stopped by about 2 months before the wedding to make a change on the flavor for the grooms cake they said it would be no problem but then two days later they called me to say it was a $20 increase so I had to go back down there to pay it.

Cake tasted FANTASTIC!!!! Not too happy with the customer service. The one time I called to confirm the week of my wedding it was like pulling teeth to get anyone to tell me everything was ok and when they did I didn't exactly believe them. Because I wasn't spending a butt load, I don't think they cared too much about my cake. The decoration on the cake was not too great. There was a circle that was not so much a perfect circle. Again though - it tasted GREAT!!!!!

WOW!!! Our wedding cake was probably the best thing I have eaten in my life, no kidding. After paying a visit to taste the different varieties and work out the design, we settled on an amazing combination of several different kinds of chocolate that just added up to heaven. We wanted a simple, tiered design with some seashell accents, and what Alessi Bakery delivered was beyond our wildest expectations... it was GORGEOUS! And tasted even better. Months later, we are still talking about it and still getting compliments from our guests. We definitely recommend Alessi Bakery, especially if you are a chocolate lover like my husband and I. (Although I don't think you can go wrong with anything they make!)

Melissa was wonderful to work with. I came in (literally) with a bar of soap with a pretty design on its package and she designed a gorgeous cake based on that. My cake came out so beautiful that people are still talking about it and the wedding was two months ago. Alessi's also did the pastries (cream puffs and cannolis) and they were delicious and fresh. I would absolutely work with Alessi's again and plan on going back on our 1 year anniversary to have them recreate a small version of our wedding cake (we ate our top the week after the wedding it was THAT good!) Alessi's was the only vendor my planner recommended when it came to cakes, that has to say something!

Melissa and Alessi were a last-minute change in cake decorators for us as we had previous arrangements fall through. Boy am I glad that we made the switch!! We had 10 unique cakes, one for each table at the reception. My request to Melissa was fairly vague as I just specified colors and a fall theme and asked her to let her creative juices flow for the rest. She did a phenomenal job! Every cake was different in decor and flavor, and each more amazing than the last! Obviously there was a ton of leftover cake, but we were prepared for that with to-go boxes for our guests to enjoy more cake at home later. I was thrilled with our whole experience!

Cake & Pastries: Alessi Bakery, Tampa, Florida

A+: Melissa from Alessi handled was our baker & decorator. She is PHENOMENAL! I highly recommend that any Tampa Bay bride go through her for your cake! I had a vision for our cake and wanted something different. I emailed several pictures I liked and Melissa came up with a combination of several of my favorites and incorporated them into one stunning cake! I always assumed that cake bakers/decorators had seen everything, so I was tickled when Melissa was excited to make our cake! She thought the design was so unique and pretty and couldn’t wait to make it! It’s really a great feeling when your baker is as excited as you. We also chose red velvet cheesecake as our flavor – we’ve been married for a month and I’ve been craving it ever since! Each tier was 3 layers: red velvet, cheesecake & red velvet. The flavor was amazing & the guests couldn’t get over the taste. It was so unique and like nothing they’d ever had at a wedding. We also did pastries from Alessi. We didn’t need them, but we wanted to have a lot of dessert so we ordered mini pumpkin & key lime pies, and a variety of italian pastries. Everything was so fresh and delicious! I also had Melissa make a groom’s cake for the rehearsal dinner which I surprised my husband with. He is a big NY Giants fan and his favorite player growing up was Mark Bavaro – he has a jersey he wears to every home game. I took a picture and asked Melissa to make a cake out of it, something all chocolate. Well, when they brought it out for dessert at the restaurant, David went nuts! So did everyone else! The cake was everything I had hoped for and not to mention tasted delicious. It was an all chocolate cake with butter cream frosting and just cemented for me that Alessi is the best bakery by far in the Tampa Bay Area.

I took a picture and asked Melissa to make a cake out of it, something all chocolate. Well, when they brought it out for dessert at the restaurant, David went nuts! So did everyone else! The cake was everything I had hoped for and not to mention tasted delicious. It was an all chocolate cake with butter cream frosting and just cemented for me that Alessi is the best bakery by far in the Tampa Bay Area. Read less

Melissa at Alessi was just incredible to work with! She did the surprise groom's cake for my husband and the design turned out exactly as I envisioned and just as promised, but better yet it tasted amazing...people are still talking about his cake. I highly recommend working with her and the carrot torte cake (cheesecake and carrot cake combo...it was to die for!). Also, Melissa was just so amazing because she did more than our groom's cake, she also made these adorable custom cookies to match the theme and colors of our candy buffet (we received SO many compliments) and in addition she helped to make and put together our escort favors. We had a beach wedding and had a new and novel idea for our escort cards which were attached to mini pails, and Melissa and her staff filled them with edible coarse sugar colored to look like sand and custom mini chocolates in the shape of shells...and what's more, they completely assembeled all of them and delivered them on the wedding day. 5 star service all the way, we highly recommend. Thanks for everything!

Alessi's Melissa did a beautiful job of the design I sketched to match the red embroidery of my dress. The cake was an identical match to my dress and Melissa added to what I requested and blew us away. The cake was a pudding cake (vanilla and raspberry marble- extremely moist and pretty too. Light buttercream to hold the white fondant...absolutely delicious. So the colors were white with, red embroidery with white/silver beads underneath dangling. The bottom edges were white balls with silver balls in each one...so white, red, silver. We originally requested that the cake be died red and Melissa was nice enough to run a "Test cake" to see how much food coloring to get it red. She phoned us 2 days before to let us know it tasted horrible....so we are so glad she went the extra mile for us...

My only complaint is that we had too much cake for our 50 people so we felt we paid too much for a cake that wasn't eaten. Our cake would have easily fed over 100 people. We had to leave the entire bottom layer behind for the staff at our venue because there was no way we (my husband and I) would to be able eat it. A lot of our guests weren't interested in taking it. We had a lot of trouble getting a hold of Melissa (leaving messages and such, returning calls), but once we got a hold of her she was great.

Overall we were extremely happy.

I worked with Melissa at Alessi, and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome of my gorgeous wedding cake. It was delicious and absolutely beautiful. I had priced three other vendors and could not be more pleased with the decision I made. I am constantly getting compliments on my cake, and I would highly recommend them on every level.

Melissa at Alessis is a total pro. We gave her a photo and she replicated it exactly. I sent her paint color samples and the frosting matched our wedding colors perfectly.

The cake tasted great, but was absolutely huge. We could have gone with a cake half the size.

The groom's cake - a German chocolate which we served at the rehersal party - was also fabulous.

DELICIOUS wedding cake, and absolutely stunning. They work with you individually to create a masterpiece that exceeds expectations. Every single one of our guests loved the cake and actually ate it! Go to enough weddings and you'll find that's not normally the case. Tons of flavors for both cake and fillings, and very talented decorators. Reasonably priced, too!

My cake decorator was a really nice person.
She was helpful.
However, when I saw my cake, I was kind of disappinted.
It was not the exact cake I had in mind.
I can't say there is anything wrong with it.
I just don't love my cake.
I think maybe I should have showed her the exact picture I want to avoid this kind of thing.
But overall they make good cake.

My wedding cake turned out just as I had envisioned. I couldn't have been more thrilled! In addition, I have never heard so many compliments on how great the actual cake tasted. Just a few weeks before the wedding I decided to add on a grooms cake for my husband who loves ships. Not only did Alessi accomodate my late request, but the cake was a remarkable replica of one of the ships on which my husband used to work.

All we did was go to the initial consultation, show Melissa a photo of what I liked, discussed the colors, tasted the different options and chose what we liked, and just like that...the day of the wedding we had the cake of our dreams. The cake was ridiculously good and gorgeous. I couldn’t believe she made it happened from our 30 minute meeting months before. They have been doing this for many years, this lady knows and is super talented. Our guests loved the cake, we received so many compliments. We chose fresh flowers as decorations on the cake and it was absolutely beautiful.

Thank you Melissa for all the help, it was a pleasure working with such a great professional and talented baker. You took all the worries from us, one less thing we had to worry about, and you delivered exactly what we wanted.

We LOVED our cake. Although we had a pretty simple cake it was exactly as we asked. It was one of the easiest tasks to cross of our list. They have wedding cakes and tastings down to a science and we couldnt have been happier. The only reason I did not give them 5/5 stars for quality of service is because our topper on our cake never made it on the cake. I'm not really sure why - of even where it is now... but it was never there. Luckily no one noticed besides me.
