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.

I cannot say enough about cake-chicago! My husband and I got married at The Drake and they use cake-chicago so we didn't have much of a choice. I was not disappointed and am glad I didn't have to shop around because I would not have found a better place for our wedding cake if I tried. First, communication was super-easy; I always received responses to my emails within a couple hours and they were super-accomodating when I decided to make a design change two weeks prior to our wedding. Furthermore, the cake tasting was an absolute blast- perhaps one of my favorite parts of the planning process! We sampled several options and they were all delicious- if we could have had three different cakes with different flavors, we would have! Finally, and most importantly, our cake was amazing! Not only was it beautiful on the outside, and exactly as I envisioned it, it was beautiful on the inside! The colors of the layers looked amazing and several of our guests commented that they'd never seen such a beautiful cake inside and out. As for the taste, it was absolutely delicious and very moist! We've all had dry wedding cake before, but that cake was not from cake-chicago. One of my girlfriends is a beachbody coach and she doesn't eat sweets- ever. One of our friends who was at her table came up to me later in the evening and commented on how delicious our cake was and that the beachbody coach completely devoured her cake as everyone watched in awe! I also love that we were given the option of doing a top tier and freezing it until our one year anniversary or getting a new, fresh top tier in a year. We opted for the fresh cake and I can't wait for our one year anniversary so we can enjoy cake-chicago's masterpiece again!

We worked with Cake Sweet Food Chicago for our wedding in June, as they were one of the vendor choices for cake when working with our venue, Sofitel. After looking up their reviews, it was a no brainer to go with them. When we went in for our tasting and brought along 4 guests. Cake Sweet Food Chicago was so accommodating. They gave us multiple fillings and multiple cakes to try, each one as delicious as the last. It was a bit overwhelming having to choose between so many great choices but, with the help of our family and Mary, we were able to pick a great combination. While we were trying all the flavors, Mary also took us through some pictures on an iPad to get an idea of what we wanted our cake to look like. We left the appointment very excited to share our cake with our guests.

On the day of the wedding, the cake was exactly what we had described to Mary. It was absolutely gorgeous and although we had to eat it on the run during the reception, it was the best wedding cake we’ve ever had. Our venue didn’t end up keeping our cake top, which works out perfectly fine since Cake Sweet Food is going to make us a fresh cake top for our one year anniversary. We are very much looking forward to having our cake again and would highly recommend Cake Sweet Food to anyone looking for cake vendor.

We absolutely loved our wedding cake from Cake Chicago! The cake came with a package from Trump Hotel, our wedding venue.

The flavors I selected were: 1) chocolate with salted caramel; and 2) almond with bittersweet chocolate. Design was purple flowers on white background, with a white satin ribbon.

The taste was amazing! So moist and delicious... One thing, for some reason the slices guests received were small (but I think this is just how they were cut by the hotel's careting staff).

We will order a smaller version of this cake for our 1-year anniversary!

Email I sent after our wedding:

Hi Mary,

Thank you very much for all your hard work! Our cake was phenomenal. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful cake -- and it tasted as good as it looked! You really took our vision and brought it to life with so much artistry and skill. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how wonderful it was -- and we couldn't agree more. Absolute perfection.

Thank you so much for everything. It was a joy working with you!

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.

The team at Cake Chicago was absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend them to someone who wants an elegant, unique cake. From start to finish, the process of working with Gretchen & Mary was seamless. Mary was so creative with the types of flavors used and the design, etc that it quickly became one of our favorite vendor meetings. We got rave reviews of the cake from our attendees, and can't wait to relive the experience on our one year anniversary when we get to taste it all again!

Mary, your cake is the bomb! Three layers of sheer amazement...carrot with cream cheese, chocolate with salted caramel and red velvet. You really topped off a great dinner for my daughter's wedding, and lucky for me (not my thighs), we had some leftover to enjoy. Not only delicious, lovely to look at...thanks, Mary!

I'm a huge cake person and this was the best! The tasting was intimate and friendly. We had lots of options to chose from and it made the decision very difficult :) In the end the chocolate cake with salted caramel filling and the coconut cake with raspberry filling were AMAZING!

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! :-)
