cake sweet food chicago, formerly take the cake, is a small Chicago bakeshop owned by Mary Winslow specializing in wedding cakes and favors. We believe that each and every wedding cake should be a reflection of the unique qualities of the couple. We enjoy creating cakes that are personalized and stand the test of time, whether they are inspired by a song, architectural features of a favorite place, or the thoughts and dreams of couple themselves.

Our cake was included as part of our package through the Intercontinental Mag Mile. We chose a fudge cake with layers of strawberry cream and milk chocolate cream. The design was lovely and it was the best wedding cake I've ever tasted. Super moist and perfect sweetness. We had numerous guests rave about how delicious it was.

Our wedding cake was beautiful and delicious. A family friend commented it was one of the best cakes she has ever had. They made a smaller, gluten-free cake for us and even that was delicious. One could not tell that it was gluten-free. They make the planning and tasting very easy. They are very personable and accommodating. The cakes tasted exactly as they did on the day of our tasting.

By far, the best wedding cake I have ever tasted! I might even go so far as to say the best cake period I have ever tasted. The chocolate cake with peanut butter filling is to die for. If you don't like those flavors, the salted caramel or even basic buttercream are all exceptional. Our guests RAVED about the wedding cake. Beautiful to look at and working with Mary was such a pleasure.

We used Cake for our wedding cake through the Hilton Orrington. Highly recommended. The tasting was one of the best parts of all the planning, the cake looked exactly as we had specified, and it was delicious. I generally expect wedding cake to be dry and boring. This was one of the best cakes, wedding or otherwise, I have ever had.

Cake Bakery was great to work with! I was planning my Chicago wedding long distance so emailing ideas and pictures was the best way to describe my vision. They were quick with responding, and open to my feedback on ideas. During planning, I was only able to spend a couple days every couple of months in Chicago. Since their hours are limited on the weekends, Cake set up a tasting "to go" where we got to choose our flavors and fillings and frostings, they pack it up, and we taste at home. We loved two combos of flavors, and with those, they were able to bake two flavors of cupcakes along with a top tier. I received numerous compliments on the cupcakes (about taste and appearance) before the reception even ended! My husband and I are looking forward to eating our anniversary cake, it'll be hard to not thaw it before then!

I have always said that a wedding cake should to look as good as it tastes. As a girl with a major sweet tooth, my wedding cake needed to be delicious and still look gorgeous. CAKE offered so many amazing options and combinations that it was not difficult for me to find one I loved, although hard to narrow it down. :)
Mary Winslow helped me create the most delicious Hazelnut cake with Nutella Buttercream and Raspberry conserve. She then helped me pick out a beautiful design that was classic and elegant even using my accent color of gray. The cake was truly breathtaking at the reception.
I followed the instructions for saving the top tier, but knowing that cake is in the freezer might be difficult to wait a year...it's that good.

Our cake was beautiful, and so very delicious - it was by far the best cake I've ever tasted, and lots of our guests raved about it, too. Mary was great to work with - even though we didn't really know what we wanted before the tasting, she walked us through all our options and made it easy to craft our perfect cake (half chocolate cake with salted caramel frosting, half orange almond cake with nutella buttercream frosting - so good!). We're so enamored with them that we just ordered their cookies and truffles for holiday gifts - and those are all wonderfully delicious, too!

Mary was easy to work with, and the cake was AWESOME! Her icing is smooth as silk and so decadent! The cake was moist and the fillings, oh the fillings, it was so hard to choose our favorites. She was very willing to work within what we wanted. For instance, I do not like fondant but the cake style we liked needed to be made that way to look nice. What did Mary do? She made us a fake cake with a small section to cut and the eating cake was separate. Not a sheet cake separate but a beautiful slice of layered cake and delicious icing separate cake. You will not be disappointed with a cake from cake :)
