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.

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!
