Amy Beck Cake Design made our wedding cake and it was awesome - well-decorated and delicious. This was impressive for a number of reasons. First, my husband and I have very different cake ideas so we had Devil’s food cake with alternating layers of pecan cream cheese and cream cheese and Almond cake with alternating layers of hazelnut buttercream and chocolate buttercream. The whole thing was awesome. Also, I HATE fondant but Haley advised us to have it for the integrity of the cake design and promised that even my fondant-hating self would like her fondant. And she was right - the fondant was amazing and I became a convert.
Haley was a dream to work with and really "got" who we are and what we wanted our wedding cake to look like. When I saw it for the first time I was speechless. I knew my cake would be gorgeous, but didn't know just how wonderful it would be.
Also, everyone was commenting on it and how it was so DELICIOUS!!! Amy Beck Cake Design provides excellent service. You won't be disappointed!

Amy did a great job designing our cake and incorporating details from my dress into the flowers on our cake. She even helped us find a cake stand to rent when I couldn't find one I was looking for online. The cake tasted fantastic, and we received lots of compliments from guests. Would definitely recommend her cakes.

I had the honor of having Amy Beck Cake make both my bridal shower cake & wedding cake. People could not stop raving about the cake at the bridal shower and were over the moon when they found out they would be having it again at the wedding.
Not only were the cakes delicious they were beautiful and unique. For a one of a kind cake you won't regret going to Amy beck!
p.s. they exactly matched grooms & groomsmen ties to the cake using fabric swatch. AMAZING!
thank you guys!!

We have used Amy Beck for both our daughter's weddings (August 2008 and June 2013)
The staff is wonderful, our tasting was great and we were given a lot of guidance on designing our cakes.
The cake was delivered to the venue without a problem and was displayed beautifully.
Our guests all raved about both the beauty and taste of the cake.
After using Amy Beck in 2008 there was no reason to try anyone else for the 2013 wedding.

Our wedding cake was beautiful and delicious - really moist, light, and flavorful, which we hadn't always found to be the case with tasting cakes (including, to be honest, the tasting cake from Amy - probably because she was nice enough to ship it to us in New York). We ordered German chocolate, and it was a huge hit with us and with our guests. And, of course, no one makes a more gorgeous-looking cake. All-around great experience; thanks, Amy!

Amy Beck provided the grooms cake for our rehearsal dinner and it was absolutely fantastic! She went above and beyond to help me decide on a design (she created it from a photo of him fishing.) The cake was a huge hit and everyone loved it! The bakery was super easy to work with and worked with the restaurant for delivery without having us get involved.

Amy Beck is so good at what she does that you'll hate her for it. I don't say that lightly. We went to a few local wedding cake producers before having our tasting with Amy, but she blew them all out of the water. In fact, after our tasting with Amy Beck we thought it would be smart to further our comparison by still visiting other wedding cake vendors and after every single one we said the only thing that we could, "Darn you Amy Beck, your cake is so good that you ruined any other cakes for us."
USE AMY BECK! She's worth every single penny. She's kind and welcoming and an absolute artist. She'll make your day beautiful and delicious.
Cake wasn't a priority for us when we started our vendor search. Amy made it a highlight of our wedding.

We had Amy Beck make our cake. Amy was very nice to work with. She had so many options for cakes design wise it was hard to choose. She had just as many flavor combinations which were all amazing. Choosing the cake was the toughest decision we had throughout all the planning. We actually got to choose 2 different types of cake which was so great! Amy knew our florist and worked with her on decorating the cake with flowers. The cake was beautiful and delicious!

It was the best cake I have ever had. I've given out her name atleast 10 times since, everyone wants to know who made it!

We used Amy Beck for my sister's wedding and then again for my wedding last week. We had two completely different looking cake designs, and both turned out beautifully! Amy was a pleasure to work with from day 1 and clearly understood and executed both of our visions with 100% accuracy.

Not only did the cakes look great, but they tasted by far better than any wedding cake I have had and also on par with cakes you would buy fresh that day from any good bakery. In fact, I would say it's better than any bakery because her flavor choices in cake and frosting were so different and each so good, it was very hard to choose what we wanted! We ended up doing alternating layers of a chocolate bourbon cake with peanut butter frosting and carrot cake with cinnamon ginger cream cheese frosting, both were amazing! We also had to use fondant on our cake, at first we tried to avoid using fondant as we have tasted fondant at other weddings and hated it, but Amy's fondant was definitely a pleasant surprise and we had no problem using it to get the look we envisioned. We received more compliments than we could count about the look and taste of our cake, and we couldn't be happier.

Amy's quick communication, honesty, and ability to grasp what we wanted was absolutely flawless. I would highly recommend using Amy Beck.

Amy Beck Cake Design provided us with a delicious and beautiful wedding cake, plus a smaller version of the wedding cake (1 tier, decorated like the cake) in a gluten free version. I, the bride, and some of my wedding guests unfortunately have to eat gluten free, but we weren't missing out on anything by eating Amy's delicious cake!!! The groom gives major thumbs up for the regular cake, and I can vouch for the amazing work she does for gluten free cakes!! Thanks to Amy Beck and associates!

Cake is great, she is very helpful with tastings, and the price is fair. She was even able to add more cupcakes to our order a week before the wedding, although we ended up not needing to, she said it wouldn't be a problem if we did.

All in all Amy was great to work with, the cake set up was beautiful, and the cupcakes were delish!

I went to the cake tasting with my daughters -- and we choose the Chocolate Bourbon with raspberry, the middle was lemon with raspberry and the top was carrot cake with cream cheese -- WONDERFUL. We had a Chicago themed wedding - and of course, wanted a Chicago themed cake. Then to complicate matters, I choose not to have a groom's cake but an unusual cake topper - a truck! I took photos of my fiancé’s truck (his pride & joy that he built). Amy replicated the truck & logos to the tee! She even asked for a photo of us both and she did our heads popping out the truck windows -- it was better than I imagined and OMG -- did Amy deliver. I would love to post a photo of this cake that Amy did -- unbelievable. I was hoping Jim would love it -- and he did. We had the ceremony on the Kanan and before the ceremony he went to take a look at the cake -- he was totally blown away. He was calling everyone over to look at it -- and then when he was called to go upstairs for the ceremony -- he kept saying "come here you have to see this cake -- it's unbelievable!" Not only was the cake fabulous -- it tasted great as well. I've had wedding cakes before that were not meant for human consumption -- and this was delicious!! Received so many compliments not only on the design but the cake itself! Thank you Amy!! You definitely out did yourself on our cake. I cannot even thank you enough -- and if I could rate you higher than 5 stars -- I would. (P.S. My daughters were blown away as well). THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

Being that I am a cake connoisseur, well, at least I think of myself as one, I was very involved in picking out my cake for my wedding day. I went to 6 different bakeries to taste cake! (The best part about planning a wedding!)

Amy Beck Cake Design was our last tasting, and we were floored with the deliciousness of the cake. We tried all sorts of cake flavors and frostings; Amy Beck was there with us along the way informing us of various flavor combination's. She was very helpful, nice and down to earth and super easy to work with.

We decided on the Devil's Food Cake with Creme Cheese Filling and Chocolate Ganache frosting...decadent! It turned out absolutely beautiful and tasted amazing. Guests couldn't stop talking about the cake and even months after the wedding I still hear how wonderful the cake was!

She also did a fabulous cake for one of my friend's son's 1st birthday party.

I can't wait to use her again.

I highly recommend Amy Beck Cake Design! The tasting was so yummy, there were so many flavors to choose from but with out a doubt when she presented her passion fruit sample, hands down, EVERYONE was hooked!

She was friendly, accommodating, creative and has a wonderful staff! I live in Hawaii so we corresponded mostly through e-mails and she was always there to answer questions or any concerns I had. I Loved her!

Amy Beck Cake Design was so fun and easy to work with. Amy was really flexible when scheduling our tasting and initial consultation and really worked with us to clearly understand what we wanted. The top tier of the cake was Gluten Free, half chocolate, half vanilla with a mint chocolate chip filling, this tier was so good, you would never know it was Gluten Free. The other tiers where chocolate with a chocolate filling, almond with a raspberry filling and pumpkin with a cream cheese filling, perfect for an October wedding. I was disappointed at the end of the night when there was no cake left only to discover it was because our guests were asking for seconds and thirds of the cake, unheard of for wedding cakes! We hope to be able to order a cake similar to our wedding cake for our one year anniversary!

All said no except Amy Beck! Amy Beck told us they had never tried a vegan cake before, but you could not tell. It was some of the best cake I ever tasted!!!!!!!! It was the one thinkg I made sure I ate at our wedding. And the design was amazing!!! Amy and her crew are so talented not to mention just delightful to work with!!!!!

Amy Beck did an absolutely amazing job on our wedding cake and I would recommend her to anyone! We went to three different bakeries for tastings and by far, her cake was the best tasting. She looked at the pictures we brought in, the invitations and the color swatch for the bridesmaid dresses and immediately started sketching out an idea. I loved this, it wasn't like the other places we went where we could only choose a pre-set design out of a book.

The day of the wedding, I had so many people come up to us and rave about the cake. Most of them saying they went back for more so they could try all the different flavors (we had three different kinds).

My expectations were completely blown away and we really could not have asked for anything more. Amy was incredibily nice to work with, the cake looked fantastic and tasted even better.

Our wedding photographer took about as many pictures of our amazing Amy Beck cake as she did of us! And they're some of our favorite photos from the wedding. We had heard great things (many good reviews on Yelp!), and were not at all dissapointed. When we met Amy, we had some very vague ideas about what we wanted: square; three layers; blue flowers; not over-the-top. Amy listened intently and then started sketching right away in front of us. She's a pro. She's inspired. It was for us. She didn't even need an eraser - we loved it (and my wife and I are extremely picky people). Then we got to taste some VERY delicious cake and fillings, which was a much more difficult process, because we loved a lot of them. We settled on a different flavor for each layer: pistachio with raspberry, red velvet with cream cheese, and chocolate with chocolate butter cream. Yum!

After hearing Amy Beck's name several times throughout the wedding planning process, my fiance and I decided to arrange a consultation with her for our wedding cupcakes. Not only were we blown away by all the delicious cake flavors we tasted, but we were also blown away by Amy's incredible creativity! Inspired by our invitations, she created the most beautiful replica for our top tier, along with a tower of equally beautiful cupcakes, which our guests RAVED about all night (and even after the wedding!). We absolutely could not be happier with the end result, and we would recommend Amy Beck to any bride in a heartbeat!

She was extremely flexible and accomodating with tasting appointments, which was very important to me as my work schedule can stay pretty crazy and unpredictable. Her cakes actually tasted amazing...not just good for a wedding cake, but Amazing for cakes in general. And, they were beautiful, creative, and perfectly executed! I had guests all night tell me not only that the cakes were lovely, but that they were the absolute best wedding cake they have ever had. The only negative thing I can say is that there was not much left over for me to enjoy!!

We made an appointment for taste testing--everything was wonderful! We tweaked the cake we saw a bit and we added a groom's cake that looked like a mummy (we had a Halloween wedding). Everything was so tasty and beautiful and we had so many wonderful compliments from our guests! I am very happy that we chose Amy to help make our day so special!

Amy did a grooms cake for me - my husband loves Mark Knopfler so I gave her a picture of a signature guitar. Everyone thought it was so cool! Not only did she replicate the guitar, but she replicated his signature on there! VERY NEAT! My tasting was a lot of fun - I was keeping it a secret from my husband so I went there alone and had a great time tasting and a hard time choosing! Amy helped me pick out some great combos of cake/frosting - Yum! I loved the laid back atmosphere of the tasting and knew that I was in good hands - Amy obviously knew what she was doing and all around me were these beautiful cakes they were making for other events. I was overwhelmed with how stunning these designs were. My cake was beautifully presented at the reception and I couldn't have been more pleased. I got a lot of compliments on it!

We wanted it all for our wedding cake – it needed to look amazing but taste fantastic too. Amy Beck completely delivered! We were blown away when we tasted her cake and fillings and butter cream. AMAZING!

We had 3 different flavors each one was wonderful –
Top and second tier: vanilla buttercake with raspberry
buttercream
Third tier: Coconut cake with key lime pie buttercream
Bottom tier: Chocolate bourbon cake with hazelnut
Buttercream

We discussed designs with her and she was very helpful with what would look good. She took some of the designs that were a part of our day and incorporated into the cake.
I LOVED that it was square, but also the layers were varying heights! BEAUTIFUL AND YUMMY!
I have posted photos in my profile here as well.

We wanted it all for our wedding cake – it needed to look amazing but taste fantastic too. Amy Beck completely delivered! We were blown away when we tasted her cake and fillings and butter cream. AMAZING!

We had 3 different flavors each one was wonderful –
Top and second tier: vanilla buttercake with raspberry
buttercream
Third tier: Coconut cake with key lime pie buttercream
Bottom tier: Chocolate bourbon cake with hazelnut
Buttercream

We discussed designs with her and she was very helpful with what would look good. She took some of the designs that were a part of our day and incorporated into the cake.
I LOVED that it was square, but also the layers were varying heights! BEAUTIFUL AND YUMMY!
I have posted photos in my profile here as well.

There is no way to even come close to describing how absolutely wonderful Amy Beck of Amy Beck Cake Design is. The first time we met with Amy we absolutely loved her. We had our parents with us in addition to our wedding planner and Amy took the time to address each individual person's concerns and ideas. She was so patient with us and had such wonderful ideas. We felt so comfortable with her. Our cake was absolutely breathtaking. We asked Amy to incorporate design from my wedding dress as well as our own personal motif that we had designed into the cake, and she could not have done this better. We had a 5 tier cake, with each tier a different flavor combination, and Amy incorporated cascadng stephanotis flowers in different shades of teal blue (our color). She also made an AMAZING groom's cake in the shape of Southpaw (the Chicago White Sox mascot) for my husband and he could not have been more thrilled. In addition to the breathtaking design of our cake, the cake was absolutely delicious. No one stopped talking about it for weeks after the wedding. We love Amy Beck Cake Design and plan on coming to her for all of our future events. We strongly recommend her.

Oh my lord is this woman talented!!! She took my vision and executed it PERFECTLY. I should also point out that she was so pregnant she was ready to burst, but she still managed to take care of my cake (and do an AMAZING job with it) and get it delivered with plenty of time to spare. And the cake was delicious. Seriously. We had three tiers, and the chocolate bourbon/peanut butter tier was devoured entirely. I'm bummed that there were not leftovers of the chocolate, but at least we get the other two flavors. Yum! And again, it just looked wonderful. People were talking about it all night.

Amy designed our wedding cake. We went through photos together, showed her what we liked, then she made sketches incorporating details and our own requests for design. It was the most gorgeous cake, and it turned out so much better than I even hoped it would. The guests made so many positive comments about how creative, beautiful and delicious this cake was, and even the photographer must have taken 20 photos of it. Amy was easy to work with, friendly, creative, and excellent at her job! The cake was delivered on time and she took care of the details. The cake was one of my favorite parts of the wedding - would recommend her to anyone!

Amy was great to work with- once we got in the door. When we arrived for our appointment, which had been confirmed twice, she had just sat down with another couple who claimed to have our appointment time. She wouldn't see us then, since she had already started with them, so we grabbed a drink and came back- she apologized and recognized the error, so no harm done. Her cakes are lovely, but we wanted a simple chocolate buttercream cake. She was unobtrusive and let us taste and talk in private. We found a design she had already done but that we loved- a combed buttercream cake topped with fresh flowers, and we decided that it was the one for us. We used butter cake with pistachio filling or hazelnut filling for the top tiers, and chocolate with strawberry for the bottom, all robed in a delish chocolate buttercream. Everyone loved it- tehre was barely any left at the end of the night. Beautiful, too. Thanks Amy!

Outstanding work! Amy is a pleasure to work with. Her cakes taste wonderful (we did a vanilla cake with raspberry buttercream, then a layer of almond with almond buttercream), and they are truly breathtaking. She designed our cake from scratch based on various pictures that I showed her...it was perfect. The colors were spot on, and the artwork was flawless. And, as already said, the cake was delicious, too. In fact, it was so good we weren't able to save our top tier for our first anniversary...we ate it the night after our Sunday morning wedding! I'm already planning on having Amy make a scaled-down version for our 1st anniversary.
You can't go wrong with this vendor - highly recommended!

Six weeks before the wedding, we had our terrible tasting at Rolf's. My husband and I decided to suck it up and pay for a cake even though a cake was complimentary with Rolf's.

We tasted at Alliance Bakery, Cake Girls, and Amy Beck. Amy blew us away. Cake Girls was just as tasty as Amy's, but Amy was willing to really work with us on a totally unique design. She took our two ideas and ran with them. Even my husband was super impressed when we received back the drawings.

She came in at the last moment and saved the day. The only minor item is that she was going to thrown in a cake stand for us but forgot it. However, I didn't even notice until the following week when I got the pictures back and realized that there wasn't a cake stand. I would highly recommend.

She's definitely worth every penny!!

My husband and I had such an amazing experience with Amy Beck from the beginning. She was great and responsive from the first time we spoke via email. She was by far the easiest vendor I had to work with.

We met with her to discuss wedding cakes, cupcakes and to have a tasting. Everything at the tasting was so delicious, it was hard to choose. Amy even made up a couple more samples of frosting for us to taste, when we asked for a couple different flavors. She was so helpful when we were choosing pairings of flavors for the cupcakes. We ended up with Red Velvet, Passion Fruit and Chocolate Bourbon. Amy was able to make all the different flavored frostings look the same, so the cupcakes would all match. And created different shades of pink candy flowers to go with my wedding colors.

The day of our wedding, the cake and cupcakes were beautiful! The cake was amazing! And all the cupcakes were so delicious! We received so many compliments on both the designs, they were gorgeous with little pink candy flowers on them and the flavors!

We were so pleased with everything from Amy and so happy that we chose her for our wedding cake and cupcakes! I'd recommend her to anyone I know for cakes and cupcakes!

Amy and her team are great! Amy really listened to what we wanted and was flexible and accommodating to our needs. You can tell that she is very seasoned in her field. She knows weddings cakes! She gives great recommendations and advice on some things we would have not thought about. Once we tasted her cakes, we were sold. We LOVE Amy's cakes! Amy's cakes certainly command the price that she asks for as they are so delicious!! Once you hire her, she takes care of everything. You do not have to worry about her delivering on her commitment. It went flawlessly for us!

We used Amy Beck for my sister's wedding in 2008 and I recently used her for my wedding in June. She is extremely talented and does a fantastic job!
My sister had done a cupcake tower in 2008 and they were delicious! My wedding cake was three tiered with cascading orange petals on the side. It looked beautiful! She was able to recommend the color scheme and it turned out great.
I would definitely recommend Amy Beck for not only your wedding but all other events too!
