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.

Cakes by Karen - wonderful taste. Decoration could be slightly improved, but for the cost, we were very happy!

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.
