We were glad to hear that Baked to Perfection provided the cake for our wedding at The Crescent Beach Club. My mom had used this bakery for many years and thought that their baked goods and cakes were delicious. My husband, mother and I went to meet with Chef Robert Ellinger at the Ellinger Baking Institute to discuss our wedding cake. We decided that we wanted to upgrade the cake from what the Crescent was providing us. I showed Robert a picture of the cake I had wanted. I spoke with his wife several times between then and our wedding (as I was nervous that our cake filling was too plain) and she was extremely attentive and very pleasant to work with.

Come the day of the wedding, my fiance and I as well as all of our guests were extremely impressed. The cake was the most beautiful cake I have ever seen. It also tasted just as good as it looked and was absolutely perfect for the occasion. Chef Robert over exceeded my expectations and created an even more magnificent and beautiful cake then the picture I had shown him. He is extremely talented and we highly recommend Baked to Perfection. Their cakes really are Baked to Perfection!!

One word: AMAZING.

We were going for something unusual, fun, and creative. Chef Slinger completely understood that and ran with it and we absolutely loved the result! It didn't hurt that it was incredibly delicious as well!!

Like many other brides, my cake came with our (amazing Crescent Beach Club!) venue. I was worried that when we arrived for the tasting here that someone would attempt to "up-sell" us. I was also worried that the included cakes would not be large enough to feed our (over 200) guests and that an additional fee would be assessed. By this time, my fiancé and I were totally TAPPED OUT!! However, after five minutes after walking in and meeting the creative genius, Robert, all of my worries disappeared. Robert, the owner and head baker, was kind, understanding, funny, and professional. He even gave my (adorable and ALWAYS hungry!) fiancé delicious cookies and other treats because he was still hungry after the awesome cake samples!! We went with the red velvet cake with white on white icing. No fondant!!! I loved that about him! The cake was exactly what we ordered and we were 100% happy. We will DEFINITELY be using them in the future! And no up charges!!! Whoo hooo!! THANK YOU ROBERT!

This cake was a work of art. We saw it at a wedding expo and it was great. Made an appointment to do a tasting, and the options were delicious. We picked the chocolate cake. It was perfect. Not too sweet, not too dry or moist. We decided to have the cake altered for more of a beach theme. This cake looked so good we felt bad cutting it up!

My cake was awesome. It looked beautiful and tasted great. We had this huge cake topper we ordered from another vendor and Rhonda made special arrangements so that it would fit and it wouldn't crush the cake. It was perfect! I highly recommend baked to perfection.

When we were told the cake from our venue was included in pricing we were excited and couldn't wait to pick it out. The owner and head baker, Robert, set up a tasting. We had a hard time choosing just one flavor, because they were all amazing. As most brides do now, they plan their weddin from Pinterest, I was no different. I wanted a cake pop cake, and Robert was excited to make it. We also had a cake to cut, just for photos. Robert wa also willing to make a birthday cake for my husband's Grandma, as we shared the special day.
The experience and cakes were immaculate; out of this world!!! If you haven't been there yet, what are you waiting for?!?!

We are so happy with the way our wedding cake turned out. The design was exactly what we wanted, and it tasted absolutely amazing! We received so many compliments on how good the cake was. We were comparing this bakery to another bakery in town and the second I met Robert I knew this was the one. He was very personable and funny (not that that should be a reason why you pick a baker), but it made the experience that much more enjoyable. I absolutely HATE fondant and much to my surprise (unlike the other baker we went to first), he replied with "If I ran for governor, I would outlaw fondant"! From that point forward I was sold.
The tasting was a great experience. Instead of overwhelming us with 15 different cakes and 15 different fillings, he gave us three small mini cakes to choose from. I could tell immediately based on the presentation and style of these cakes that he was a good baker. The taste and texture of the cake was amazing, and you could tell that he only uses quality ingredients.
Robert also has two locations--the bakery store front and a cooking school, both in Port Washington. We went to the baking school location (haven't seen the bakery yet). It was very clean and well organized, which I liked.

I am so happy I chose Robert at Baked to Perfection, my cake was incredible. Robert was a doll, offered his suggestions and created something that was so much more beautiful than I could have thought possible. We had the Red Velvet cake and it was fantastic. Robert was even kind enough to make a small tasting cake in Chocolate for my niece since she does not like red velvet. They did an outstanding job!

excellent bakery. baker/owner is very passionate about what he does and he is very talented. great tasting and looking! loved the design of the cake. slightly different detail on the cake the day-of than discussed ahead of time, but didn't affect how beautiful it turned out. we went to this bakery very last minute in a pickle, and he was able to make our cake with no problem.

No matter how much you plan for your wedding day, something always goes wrong. The wedding cake was the disaster at my wedding. First off the owner was incredibly rude throughout the whole process. I knew I should have ran to the hills after our first encounter. The cake was nothing like what I ordered. You would think we paid so much money for a cake it should be at least something that I wanted. When I tried explaining this to the bakery they were very stand offish. They just did not care. It was a horrible experience and my biggest regret. The worst part was that I had been through this whole ordeal and the cake was nothing special! It tasted like any cake bought at the grocery store. Don't make the same mistake I did! Please save yourself the drama on your big day and get a reliable baker.

Our wedding cake was beautiful and delicious. I have to admit I was a tad nervous about the cake since we only met with the baker once to discuss detail (and once for the cake tasting). Baked To Perfection was a vendor that was included in our contract at Harbor Links so I assume they were dealing directly with our coordinater. However, once I saw the cake the day of the wedding, I was so pleased!! The color matched the sample swatch I provided perfectly and it was exactly what I had described. Perfect cake to top off our perfect day.

Initially, we were very excited about our cake. We had picked out 2 top contenders for the baker, Robert, to make. We met with him and he talked us out of one of them, saying it was way too complicated, even though the price to make the cake was outside our package from our venue and more expensive than we wanted to spend.
We chose a nice delicate cake style with off white butter cream icing and red velvet cake. There were two flower colors to add to the cake and we would have like to use real flowers, but they insisted they didn't like to use anything fake on the cake and it would look real.
In the end, the cake did not match our photo at all, the colors looked like some kid's cartoon and were the complete opposite of what we wanted. Our bridal party even came up to us during the reception and asked if that was really our cake because it didn't seem like our style.
The other thing that really bothered us, was that we gave specific instructions to Robert and he would not reply from his email, and rather an assistant would return the emails, we assume this is the same person making the cake who did not understand the instructions on color. We would not use them again and are trying to figure out a way for our photographer to change the coloring on our photos for the cake cutting... not cool.

People are still raving about my wedding cake! This bakery is AMAZING. The chef, Robert, is a little quirky, but very likable, and the man knows what he's doing! He was most accommodating but also quick to let us know why he thought some of our ideas may not be the way to go (e.g., he was pretty adamant that the wedding cake be just one flavor, for a variety of reasons--he made it make total sense, and nobody seemed upset by it!). We went with red velvet, which was never my favorite until I tasted his--it was so light, and SO good. Everybody loved it--a friend of mine admitted he inhaled EIGHT pieces at the reception! It was so fresh and moist. We were thrilled to have some to take home, and the leftovers didn't last long! In terms of what the cake looked like, we gave Robert a photo of a cake we loved, and he replicated it perfectly--white four-tier cake with fondant grapes cascading it. It was a little warm on our wedding day, so the grapes didn't hold up perfectly, but it still looked fabulous. I recommend Baked to Perfection most highly! We also got to sample some of their regular bakery products--I don't think the man makes a bad baked good. Everything was fantastic!
