We have always enjoyed cakes from Amphora, so it was a no-brainer that we book them for our wedding cake. They were great with accomodating us with the tastings and we booked that day before we even met with any other vendor.

Very pretty looking cake, exactly the way i wanted it, Tasted great! I had three flavors on my cake Chocolate, Grand Marnier and Amaretto. The whole tasting, ordering, contract signing process went smooth, the only thing that got me upset was when the delivery person left the cake out on a table at 5:00pm, although they were aware that the event time was 7:00pm. So, besides a tiny panic attack, I likes the place!

BRIDES STAY AWAY! I ordered my cake from here and had nothing but problems since the 1st meeting. You name it and it happened. After all the problems got solved I figured I would be able to enjoy my wedding and my cake would show up and be perfect... yeah right. They brought me the wrong wedding cake! They brought 3 wrong round cakes and my tiered cake was the correct flavors but the wrong color and wrong design. The small cakes were supposed to be tres leche instead they brought me apple spice cake. I ordered the brightest white possible. Instead I got an ugly off white/orange color cake. After all the problems when I went in before my wedding to give them accessories for my cake I asked to speak to the woman I had been emailing with for months so we'd all be on the same page. It wasn't even a difficult cake, all I wanted was heart scrolls on it, no complicated flowers or anything! The woman showed me the contract and everything looked fine so silly me for assuming they'd get it correct on my wedding day! Also it turns out that the woman that I talked to that day was pretending to be the woman I had been emailing with. I didn't find out until later that it was a different person! They should have been honest instead of lying to me about it. My mom emailed them and they said since the small cakes were wrong she could have $200 back. We tried explaining that more than just the 3 small cakes were wrong that the color and design were too and they didn't care. We paid over $1600 for my cake, half of it was wrong and all your going to give us back is $200 just to make us go away? When I got back from my honeymoon I went to amphoras to speak to the manager Brandon. I hate writing bad reviews so I wanted to talk to him and settle everything quickly . He apologized and claimed he wasn't told the whole story. I thought he was sincere, he promised me he would call or email me back within a week. It's been a month, I've called multiple times and heard nothing back.

You really can't go wrong with Amphora. My daughters wedding cake was beautiful and delicious. The staff at Amphora was very accommodating in setting up a tasting for us during the Christmas season (a very busy time of year for them) as it was the only time both the bride and groom would be in the area until a month before the wedding. They even suggested a way to personalize the cake for the bride and groom. They delivered the cake and set it up on time and the delivery charge of less the $30 was quite reasonable compared to others. I'd definitely recommend Amphora for any of your bakery needs.

For our wedding we wanted something simple, meaningful, tasty, and affordable. Amphora bakery hit all those points! We knew we wanted a German Chocolate cake (a family favorite) and a plain vanilla (to accommodate non chocolate lovers). Amphora's website was easy to navigate which showed prices and sizes. I was able to order both cakes via email and there were no hiccups or miscommunication. The cakes were delivered and delicious, just as we expected. Since we just did 1/2 sheet for each cake it was also very affordable for the 92 guests we had. We got a lot of compliments on the cake!

I found Amphora Bakery at a bridal expo. I was walking around tasting all of the bakeries' cake samples, and I wasn't entirely impressed with any of them. I passed Amphora as one of the last booths of the day, and my friend said, "oh look, let's try a piece of that cake, too." I was so tired of cake at that moment that I almost didn't have a sample, but BOY AM I GLAD THAT I DID! Even the sample was the most delicious cake I've ever eaten in my life. I immediately went home and emailed for an official tasting with my fiance. Maria was so professional throughout our tasting, which only further solidified that the cakes from Amphora are THE BEST! After we tasted and decided on a flavor, she took plenty of time to review my vision for the wedding and helped us customize one of their former designs into a cake that was perfect for our theme, size of our guest list, and budget. She was a pleasure to work worth during all of the planning, and the cake on our wedding day was just as delicious as the both tastings! I must have sampled cake from 15 bakeries at that expo, and I knew that Amphora had to be our baker the second I tasted their cake. I highly recommend their services!
