Absolutely HORRIBLE service. My wife and I paid $546 for our wedding cake. We should have paid $50 - that's how awful it was. On our wedding day we told them to be there at 2pm because that is when our florist would be there and she was bringing the fresh flowers for the cake people to put on the cake. Our ceremony was at 4pm and Cakes by Karen got there at 3:55pm! Un freaking believable. To top it all off they literally dropped the cake and left. They didn't even put any of the flowers or our topper on. It's a good thing I didn't see them because I would have said something. Thank God we were at the venue we were. The gentleman wr were dealing with immediately got a couple of employees to decorate the cake in time (thanks, Rick) Also the cake was a little dry for my taste. Now I'm not one to complain but this was just completly unacceptable and I will NEVER use their services again. I know if plenty other places for 1/2 the price and 4 times better service.

Our wedding cake looked amazing... Exactly what I asked for and more. It was spectacular looking and tasting as well. They were so accommodating when we had our tasting and wow do they make delicious cakes.

Karen took care of the cakes for my Cousin Val's wedding. My cousin went with several small cakes on separate tiers. The cakes were delicious and looked awesome. I especially loved that there were so many different flavors of cake and found the Lemon/Lime one especially delicious. I would say book Karen early because we tried to have her for my best friends wedding and he was unable to have her because she was too busy with several other weddings at that time to be able to add his wedding as well, which was a bit of a disappointment.

Cakes by Karen, Made the most amazing wedding cake I could have asked for I sent them a picture on what I wanted it to look like and it was exactly what I wanted. The cake tasted just like when we tested it and the filling and frosting was also amazing. Another point that everyone comes to us for a recommendation.

Great tasting cake but that's about all I can say that's positive for this vendor...I was quoted a price of $400 for a four tiered cake and when I came to pay for it, it came to $575!!! This was a cake I could have gotten from king soopers for half the price and the same quality!

The cake itself was exactly like the picture we took in so I was very pleased with that. It was also very delicious and we had a lot of compliments; we did a different flavor on every tier which I thought was a great idea. They let us come back twice to try different flavors and we didn't feel rushed into making any decisions. The only issues I had were that they were a little late in delivering the cake (thank god no one told me that at the time) and when my future MIL tried to order a grooms cake, they didn't even seem like they wanted to take the time to do something a little more creative so she went elsewhere. Other than that, great cake and delicious if you want something simple.

The cake was OK. It felt like we were just another cake to them. Nothing special. 450 for 100 guests... felt it was a little high, we didn't even do anything extraordinary with it such as fondant or different colors, flowers, ribbon etc... simple scroll work with royal and butter-cream icing...

Choosing a cake is something that my husband and I waited until the last minute to do. With Cakes by Karen though, it didn't really matter. We had a great tasting with them, where we got to sample an impressive variety of cakes. They were quick to get going on our order and helped make the decisions easy. We wound up with not one, but two delicious cakes for our big day. They worked beautifully with our caterers and had the cakes in place on time and beautiful for our wedding. We never felt pressured to do anything other than exactly what we wanted, even though it was far from traditional. Ore experience was great, the service was beyond friendly and our cakes were delicious!

Our cake was beautful and it tasted pretty good too! We had three different flavors, carrot cake, almond poppy seed and chocolate fudge. The almond poppy seed was pretty dry, but the other two were great! The carrot cake may have been some of the best carrot cake I have ever had. The fondant flowers on the cake were very pretty and it was exactly what we were looking for as far as looks! They are also very reasonable. I was happy with our wedding cake overall!

I just had my wedding cake made by Cakes by Karen and the overall cake was Delicious and was designed correctly to my specification But they have ABSOLUTELY no communication skills between the different bakeries and their customers. When it came time to cut the cake, my husband and I noticed that our cake topper that I had provided the bakery with was missing? I called Cakes by Karen the next day and Karen told myself and my father in law (who called a separate time) two different stories. One was they thought I wanted flowers on the top tier instead of my topper. the other was that the cake topper was to big for the top tier???? I was never contacted before, the day of, or during delivery questioning me what I wanted to be done. When I called about it, There was absolutely no compassion about THEIR lack of communication or follow up. AND THEY JUST LEFT WITHOUT PLACING ANYTHING ON THE TOP TIER!! Again, Great cake!!!! but just make sure they know exactly what you want because they have absolutely positively no communication skills what so ever!!!!!!!!

Our cake was exactly what we had hoped for. The flavors were so good, we cannot wait to go back and get an anniversary cake. And, they used our provided floral decorations and butterflies on the wedding cake beautifully. They also made the Groom's cake-and created a memorable display. Our only complaint is that we spent over $400 for our wedding cake, a 3 layer cake for 125 people, and to us that seemed very expensive for a buttercream only cake. For the cost, we should have had fondant provided with no extra charge. In any case, the cake was very smooth and flawless, and was delivered on time--with all the right flavors and fillings.

My cake was delicious and simple but beautiful. I was very happy with the final product. My only concerns were with the very limited delivery window they offered and the fact that they failed to meet this delivery window. I was only 15 minutes from walking down the aisle and the cake had still not arrived! Everything worked out in the end, but their lack of communication and promptness most certainly added stress to my wedding day.

I had a very specific plan for my wedding cakes and I wasn't sure I'd find a bakery that would willingly comply with my wishes. Karen was extremely accommodating and encouraging. She did exactly what I wanted and the cakes were there when I wanted them to be. And, we all enjoyed them.

I was introduced to Cakes by Karen by my mom. We went to a tasting and happen to work with a wonderful woman that was very enthusiastic and excited to help us in finding a good cake selection.
We ended up falling in love with the champagne flavored cake with strawberry filling. Something that we had never heard of prior.
The cake was beautiful and decorated with bright colorful flowers. The guests loved the unique flavor and the quality of cake! It was better than any wedding cake I had ever tried before. Actually fresh and moist, not dry and typical!
I would always recommend Cakes by Karen. They even make you a fresh anniversary cake! Which we enjoyed a year later!

We used the Cakes by Karen in Boulder (part of the same chain as the Northglenn store). We didn't want an actual wedding cake--but instead wanted to have several different cakes (so we could have lots of flavors!). Everyone at the store was just great, and the cakes were delivered on time. Oh...and the price was right too!

I had a crazy cake idea and they took the pictures and did a pretty good job of replicating a difficult cake to build. The best part to me was the taste though. I taste tested other vendors that were way more pricey and they just didn't taste as good.
