We enjoyed working with By the Dozen in creating our wedding cake. They offer a tasting where you can sample different flavored cakes and fillings to help get an idea of what they offer. They also offer a free small cake on your anniversary that we are looking forward to getting to help save room in the freezer so that couples don't have to save the top of their cakes any longer. It's a great alternative, especially for those who live out of town! Martha and her team did a great job giving us exactly what we were picturing for our cake, just from a verbal description of what we were looking for. The only complaint we had was that we felt staff was sometimes judgmental about our choices, which bothered us a bit. Other than that, great cake and everything we asked for!

We got wedding cupcakes for our guests and a small cake for my husband and I to cut. It looked exactly the way the pictures did that I took to her. She even did a groom's cake for the rehearsal dinner and had it delivered. It was great!

Sure they were professional and flexible and had a great value--but only if you want your cake to look nothing like you asked. I had sent a picture of exactly what I wanted, where I wanted the flowers on the cake, but when I walked into my recepetion that is not the cake I saw. The only good thing about that cake was that the colors were the same. The filling was not even what I had wanted. We ordered bavarian cream but my slice only had frosting in the middle, while my husband had bavarian cream. I'm not sure why half of my reception had frosting and the other had bavarian cream. I have not recommended By The Dozen to anyone and have actually steered couples away.

Martha is so good at what she does. Our wedding cake was absolutely beautiful. It was classic, but modern which is exactly the couple that we are. The cake was beautifully decorated and it tasted absolutely amazing. Every time I have a delicious treat from by the dozen I am not disappointed.

By the Dozen provided my wedding cake and I could not have been happier. The cake looked amazing and was delicious. The woman I dealt with, who does all of the wedding orders was professional and straight forward and very easy to work with. I was pleased with the presentation of the cake tasting-which was also delicious and was able to take some home for my family to taste and was pleased with that. For our wedding, not only did the cake look beautiful but the table as a whole which they also decorated-one less thing I had to worry about the day of. I was very pleased and would definitely recommend them to any bride to be! Go taste them for yourself!

We had a wedding planned in Lake Geneva area... my daughter loves this bakery so we went in to see if they could make her a cake and deliver it to the wedding site. The owner was very willing to do this for us and the cake was not only delicious , it was beautiful!! Anyone we has not been to this bakery is missing out on a special treat.

Martha...you are an angel of cake my dear. Our cake was jaw-dropping. A show stopper of a cake! "WOW" is all you heard from our guests, the cater, the staff at the reception venue, and from us. Not only was our cake gorgeous with lights and flowers but it tasted SOOOO good. We loved the fresh strawberry filling with the bavarian cream, just the right amount of sweetness. The cake itself was moist and of course beautiful when cut. Kudos to you and your staff. Thank you, sincerely, you made our wedding cake beautiful, affordable, and easy. :)

By the Dozen was great to work with and was very accodating to what we wanted for our wedding cake. The frosting and style looked exactly like we wanted and it tasted fabulous. Our only problem was that we ordered a cake topper that was our monogram from By the Dozen so that they would just take care of it and it was one less thing for us to worry about. However, when we arrived at our reception, there was no cake topper and it looked bare. We tried calling that night and got no response. We contacted them later and they gave us a refund. If they were not going to be able to provide a cake topper it would have been nice to know ahead of time and it wouldn't have been a problem to get one on our own. This is something I would check on when dealing with them or just get your own because from what I've heard it has happened before.
