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.

Great service, delicious & beautiful cakes, amazing bakers!
A little hard to schedule tasting as they are busy and I do wish they had more than one frosting (Italian meringue butter cream) choice.

We live in Atlanta and had our wedding at the Drake Hotel in Chicago, which uses Cake Chicago as their wedding cake provider for weddings. We had to combine our food tasting for the wedding with our cake tasting since we were only in town a limited amount of time, so we were so full by the time we got to the cake tasting that we weren't really able to enjoy it (which sucked because we had been so looking forward to it!). We toyed with the idea of using a different bakery than the one the Drake goes with (we thought it might be cool to use the one my parents got their wedding cake from and have always had good experiences with), but after reading reviews about Cake Chicago, we decided to just stick with them, and are so glad we did! I had found a photo of a cake that I was in love with, and they were able to bring it to life beautifully! Actually, I like the one they did better than the original photo I sent them (although I might be biased!). Mary worked with me via email to figure out which cake flavor/fillings would work out best for us and our guests and was super helpful letting me know what flavor combinations worked well together and what was popular - we ended up going with white cake with strawberry cream and cream cheese fillings and it was amazingly delicious! All in all, we are very happy with our decision to use Cake Chicago to help make our wedding cake dreams come true! :-)

Working with Cake Chicago was literally a dream come true. I was the bride that walked in with well over 50 pictures of different kinds of cake designs I liked. Instead of panicking, telling me to choose, or asking me to compromise, Mary calmly asked a few questions to start helping me pick my 10-15 favorite cakes so that she could come up with a sketch. When this seemed impossible, she asked, “Okay, this one or this one?” and deleted the one I did not choose to help me realize which aspects I valued most. At our tasting, Mary patiently tasted several different options with us to help us come up with the most seemingly outrageous combination (yet incredible) cake flavors. At our wedding, a table of our guests (who claimed they typically do not care for wedding cake) could not get enough of ours and wanted to know what kind it was because they were all debating! I’ll agree with them too, I have never tasted a better wedding cake & I literally cannot wait to eat our top layer on our 1st anniversary!

Throughout the entire process, Mary dealt with my consistently indecisiveness with grace and charm. When I wasn’t sure about something, I always knew I could trust Mary with whatever she thought was best. She made sure it was the perfect cake down to the very last detail. When I saw our cake for the first time, I was blown away with how beautiful it was. She had provided a sketch, but it’s true beauty just had me awestruck. She did such an incredible job. Mary is a saint and only makes the most beautiful cakes. You can trust her with your cake whether you know EXACTLY what you want or you have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA – she will make it perfect.

We went for our tasting on the coldest day of the year in February 2015 and were met by 2 of the friendliest people in Mary and Gretchen. From the minute we walked in we knew we were in good hands. As we sat down and began the tasting both of us knew that this was going to be an awesome cake. On the day of the wedding the cake out did our expectations. The design was exactly as was drawn on the day of the tasting. It was so beautiful and elegant with the modern classic look we both were looking for. We hated to cut in to it but did and it tasted awesome. All our guests commented on how well it tasted. We highly recommend that anyone looking for a cake call them and make an appointment.

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.
