I personally am not a huge fan of cakes and was really not planning on having one at all for my wedding but it was included in our banquet hall package. I didn't have any at the actual wedding but I did eat the top tier of the cake the day after the wedding with my husband and it was beyond delicious. It was beautifully decorated in a winter theme as well. They do a wonderful job.

The cake was exactly what I wanted! They did a nice job with the cake sampling too. We got to choose either mini cups or small cakes. We did the small cakes and it was a great dessert for later.

LOVEEEEED my cake!!!!

It was gorgeous and looked EXACTLY like the picture i showed them. Not only did the cake look amazing, but it tasted BEYOND amazing as well!! My MOH has been in and attended what seems like a 100 weddings and even she was super impressed with how delicious our cake was.

The cake was so delicious that my family had a replica tier waiting for my husband and I when we returned for our honeymoon (since we only got a bite or so the night of!)

I can't say enough amazing things about my cake-- look no further, Central Continental should be your first and last stop for all your cake/bakery needs.

Our cake was part of our package from Bridges of Poplar Creek Country Club. We heard on the news that a fire had nearly burned down their building so we were really nervous about how they would be able to fill all of the orders coming up for Easter and wedding season. Even though this massive fire required them to move locations, you would never know anything this horrible happened! They had staff contacting us to reschedule our tasting and even got personal calls to our cell phones from their staff's cell phones after they were still organizing all of the chaos that comes with moving locations.

We chose a four-tier cake that included a blue ribbon and two simple broaches. We met with the bakery to go over all of our choices and again to have the tasting and drop off our cake accessories. The day of our cake arrived on time and exactly as requested. We think they may have upgraded our frosting just to make it exactly how we wanted it! The cake tasted great, looked great, and they were extremely accommodating and helpful! Thanks again! We also have a FREE one-year anniversary cake that came with our package so we don't have to let a cake sit in our freezer for a year! A+++++++. Will do business with again.

At the end of the night, everybody was asking where we got the cake from and because we had cake left over, it was all gone by the time we wanted a late night snack! It was that good!!

The bakery is amazing. The staff are amazing. The cake was SO TASTY!! We had a 5 tier cake and they gave us exactly what we asked for. Each tier had a different cake flavor for variety. The buttercream was delightful and they decorated it so perfectly. I mailed ribbon into them and they used it around the bottom of each tier and placed "bling" around the ribbon. Their cooperation with my dream idea for our cake made the cake turn out better than I could have ever imagined!

We loved our wedding cake. The were able to make 3 different flavored tiers and one of them was pumpkin with cream cheese. They also provided our sweet table and all of our guests raved about how good the cake and the desserts were. I want my birthday cake from here! We worked through the Arboretum Club and the bakery was responsive in providing the answers to them.

Central Continental Bakery provided our wedding cake for our fall wedding. My parents have been using this bakery since I was born in '86 and we have loved them and their cakes since then. The wedding cake came out gorgeous, I gave them a photo of an idea that we liked, but I told them to use their creativity a little and make it into their own as long as the cake was ivory and had leaves and branches on it. The cake was better than I expected, and way better than any photo I could find! The cake was also delicious and very rich in flavor. The only downside was that my husband originally wanted fresh banana cream filling for half the cake, but they quoted us $1.50 per person for the banana cream filling, so we went with a more basic filling for the whole cake since we ended up having about 185 people. Other than that, the cake was still awesome and I would definitely recommend this bakery to anyone looking for a great wedding cake.

Central Continental Bakery baked and designed our wedding cake. It already looked so gorgeous on paper, but when we walked into our reception and saw the cake on the cake table, we were floored. It was so beautiful and well made! Not to mention delicious! They added a ribbon and some other touches to make the cake stand out, which I really appreciated! Can't wait to eat our top tier on our 1st wedding anniversary!

Our cake was part of the package deal that we had with our hall and therefore was built into the cost over-all, so while I put 5 as value... I hadn't priced them out. Even if we had, it would have been worth a higher price!

We chose to order extra sample cups prior to the wedding to help narrow down our decision. Ultimately, we went with a white cake with a combination of bavarian custard and buttercream for the filling (YUM) and buttercream frosting over-all. In place of a cake topper, we chose fondant flowers, which we then needed to pay extra for.

The cake was delicious! My only complaint was that the box that they gave us to take home the top tier wasn't tall enough at all, and came no where near to closing. If that is the worse you have to deal with... who cares!?

I highly recommend this bakery.

I have great things to say about CCB.
First of all, my cake was absolutely beautiful. I had a rustic theme and I wanted a textured cake, so I gathered some inspiration and CCB recreated exactly what I wanted. It also tasted delicious! (combination cake flavors with buttercream filling).
The staff was also very helpful. I ordered the cake through my venue that is partnered with the bakery, but I had to get in touch with the bakery personally so I could talk about details.
Candice was the one who worked with me, and I was extremely impressed with her speedy responses. We chatted throughout the day, and I got emails back within minutes from her. It was so nice to get everything settled in just one day, and relieved a lot of stress.
She was also super flexible, and shared in my excitement to have the cake I wanted.

When I saw it on my wedding day as I entered the reception, I couldn't have been happier. My guests loved it as well. Thank you CCB!

This was the bakery that was included in my wedding reception site's package. I cannot tell you how many little cake testers we tried to FINALLY get our cake ordered! They give you a LOT of testers for FREE and even when you exhaust those....there testers are CHEAP. I was very worried about the cake being dry and the piece Bob and I fed to one another (the only cake we got all night....) was VERY moist! We went with the WHITE cake. We did different fillings in each layer. It was YUMMY!

We originally were getting my cake elsewhere, but that baker backed out just over 2 weeks before my wedding. Central Continental is the Bakery that my reception hall works with so we decided to go with them. So, props to them for making our cake on such short notice! I had a lot of specifications that were not included in the package that we paid for extra, but we were not disappointed. The cake was delicious! We got so many great reviews from everyone. The buttercream frosting was to die for! Definitely recommend!

I had a lot of specifications that were not included in the package that we paid for extra, but we were not disappointed. The cake was delicious! We got so many great reviews from everyone. The buttercream frosting was to die for! Definitely recommend! Read less

Central Continental Bakery is the bakery that my vendor went through. I was a little thrown because when we did our tasting we ordered to-go cups for $2.50 of 6 different flavors of cakes / fillings, so it wasnt exactly the experience i was expecting - but every single type of cake / filling was out of this world!!! Everything at that bakery is just amazing. Everyone there is really nice too! The design on my cake was intricate, and didnt turn out like the picture, but it was very pretty and tasted AWESOME! I did 2 tiers of vanilla cream and 1 tier of raspberry cream - just delicious!!

We used Central Continental Bakery for our wedding cake. It was sooooooo good! Our cake originally came with a fondant "frosting". We are not big fans of fondant and preferred that it be frosted with buttercream. They were very accomodating. The cake came out exactly as it looked in the picture with fondant and tasted amazing. They have a beautiful selection and delectable flavors. No Value rating or Cost listed because we're not sure how much it costed; we ordered the cake through our venue (our venue ordered on our behalf).

What can we say expect "you're the best". Our cake was absolutely delicious and everything we expected and probably more. Their buttercream is the best. We ordered the "Danielle" in a white cake with buttercream icing and chocolate buttercream filling. We enjoyed our cake so much that we took half of it with us on our honeymoon - why wait for our 1st Anniversary. Continental is the best and always has been.

One of the reasons that I chose my banquet hall was that they contracted thru Central Continental for the cake. We had a square, three tier cake of the "Champagne" design. I liked the uniqueness of the cake. We did chocolate cake with raspberry filling. It was excellent. We have frozen the top, but intent to go back and get a fresh cake if it's not good in a year. (Note that I have them 5 stars in all categories as to not bias the rating, but I did not deal with the bakery directly, so i am only really rating the taste, appearance, and design of the cake.

This bakery was included with our reception venue (Makray Memorial Golf Club) & we ordered several sample cakes & were disappointed with how quickly they dried out. Skeptical, we upgraded the cake in hopes of having a more moist result (strawberry filling instead of bavarian cream). The actual wedding cake was STUNNING to look at & absolutely DELICIOUS to eat. Not dry at all, very light & wonderful to eat. We chose white & chocolate with strawberry filling & everyone really enjoyed it. I can't compliment them enough on the beauty of the cake - it was breathtaking.

I did not work personally with Central Continental because our venue contract provided the cake from this vendor. I must say it was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!
I picked out the "FOUNTAIN BLUE SPECIAL" and I just loved the simplicity of it with a few petals around it.
Thank you for being so great.

The preparation of my wedding day went smooth sailing until I had to deal with my Wedding Cake. Of all the headaches that I prepared myself for this one threw me. I was forced to get my cake at Central Continental as it was part of the venue and I had to go thru MaryAnne. If you are looking for a basic wedding cake off their menu, you should have no problem. However, anything out of the ordinary they really are not flexible. I had to turn them over to my husband. It was a sour cream cake with raspberry and cream cheese filling with non dairy topping. Sound complicating????
The end result, I did get what I wanted at double the price. My guests said it was delicious and the best wedding cake they ever tasted. I let my florist do the decorating and it was gorgeous. For the best day of your life if you want smooth sailing......go elsewhere for your wedding cake.....

We used this vendor for our wedding cake because it was part of our reception package. Even though we could not pick who made our cake, I would highly recommend them now to any bride. The cake was beautiful. We picked one in their catalogue and made some changes to the design to make it our own. They made the changes no problem and it was perfect. The cake itself was delicious! We got yellow cake with a raspberry cream filling, we loved it and so did our guests.

However, in the taste department, our cake was awesome. We had white cake with mocha filling and chocolate cake with raspberry bavarian cream filling...got lots of compliments on the cake. If you pick a simple design, then the cake should turn out great.

We got our cake complimentary through our vendor, however it was very important to us so we decided if they weren't able to do the flavors we liked (we were willing to pay extra) and have it look the way we wanted, we would get a groom's cake somewhere else. We asked for 6 different types of cakes to try and we enjoyed 4 of the 6. The one we chose (almond cake with mocha filling), was amazing! We were so excited, we bragged about how good our cake was going to be. Then when the wedding came and our cake was brought out, it tasted like white cake with plain buttercream filling. My sister said a few of her bites she could taste the mocha...and several people came up to our head table asking where the great cake we had talked about was. We argued with the banquet servers to make sure they didn't serve us one of the cakes from the other weddings going on in our venue, but it was the right cake. Very disappointing. Also we tried to contact the bakery ourselves 4 times (two calls and two emails) before ordering the cake, but they were very rude and unprofessional telling us to call back and they couldn't help us. We eventually had to have our venue manager call for us.

Our cake was beautiful and delicious. The price was very reasonable compared to many of the city vendors we looked at, and we were so happy with the results. We also ordered cookies (it's an Italian tradition) and they were also great. They were on time with the delivery, even on a Sunday over a holiday weekend and downtown. Finally, they added extra flowers to the cake than what we ordered. The only slight downside was that during the actual meetings with the cake bakers, it was tough and took a long time to get them to understand exactly what we wanted. However, we provided some pictures, and they produced an amazing result. I was floored when I saw our cake for the first time, and I would highly recommend the bakery.

There are no words to describe how absolutely perfect my cake was! We went to Central Continental Bakery and had samples of different combinations of cake and filling and went with a white cake with chocolate buttercream filling.

I found a picture online of a cake I really liked and they literallu copied it to the absolute last detail. It was far BEYOND what I ever expected they could do! With all those fancy cake shows on TV now you can easily have one of those cakes for a fraction of the cost! My cake was by far one of the best things about my wedding. It was so unique and different, no one expected a black and white cake! It was INCREDIBLE!!!! Thank you CCB!!!

My ceremony and reception site had an arrangement with Central Continental Bakery. The cake is included in all of the banquet fees, and all they (White Pines) ask is that you bring any pictures or ribbon for your design. I submitted probably the most confusing wedding cake sketch and set of directions ever, and they recreated my vision perfectly. The cake was stunning, and delicious (chocolate cake w/ raspberry bavarian cream filling), too!

My now-husband has several food allergies; chocolate and strawberries are only two of them. We wanted a lemon cake with a blackberry filling, which seemed great (light and refreshing)--they said they could only do raspberry filling. I asked (having worked in the restaurant business for 20 years) since they could do raspberry, couldn't they do blackberry just as easily? They said, "no". Wow--VERY inflexible!!! Just buy the other berry--they're bigger and juicier than raspberries, too!!!! Whatever--LAME!!! The cake was added in with the reception venue planning which saved us money (still very important) but the cake was so-so at best.

My husband and I live in Dallas but got married in Chicago Oct 24th. It was hard to plan a wedding out of state. We chose to get our cake here and it was absolutely awesome. It tasted great and looked beautiful. I also had them do a surprise grooms cake. I wanted my husbands race car. I sent them pictures with every detail I wanted on it. I didnt get to see any of their samples but couldnt have been happier with the outcome. My husband loved it and it looked just like his car!! I would highly recommend Central Continental for your wedding or any occasion.

They were wonderful!! We picked a style out of the book and then brought in some pictures from magazines to sort of personalize our cake to us. She was extremely helpful and for a small charge was able to incorporate my ideas. The cake samples were also easy to get. A little far from where we live but if we were in the area we'd definitely go back!

What an wonderful job Connie!!! I brought in pictures of a design we wanted and she took it and made it come to life. Our cake was the most amazing part of the decor. I still have people tellling me five months later how decadent and sinful our wedding cake was. HIGHLY recommend them for your wedding cake...it will not only look great, but it will taste AMAZING.

My cake was absolutely gorgeous. I found a small picture in a bridal magazine of what I wanted my cake to look like and Central mimicked it 100%. Not to mention it was delicious. For our 1 year anniversary my brother had a mini cake make for us that was exactly the same as our wedding cake. Absolutely wonderful!!

Our cake was perfect. The only thing that didn't happen is that we had requested a green pattern on the cake and they left it all as white, but it ended up looking better and more elegant! I also had wanted to surprise my husband by incorporating something to commemorate the New York Giants winning the Super Bowl. The bakery was incredibly accommodating and made the perfect tribute on the side of the top tier so that our head table could see it but the majority of the pictures would not have it. Our reception site works directly with the bakery which made everything incredibly easy.

We used Central Continental Bakery for one of our cakes for our wedding reception. Our caterer includes them in our package for a sheet cake. Central continental lets you pick flavors in cups and you choose the tastes that you like best. We picked out yellow cake with custard and chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and strawberries. The cakes were yummy! We picked the tastes, gave them to our caterer, and they did the rest.

I don't know the cost really bc it was included in our cost with the caterer.

Central Continental Bakery made the cake exactly the way we wanted it. We had to go to the bakery to pick up our own samples and bring them home to sample, which was inconvenient, and the samples were a little dry. But, we changed all of the frosting colors and supplied our own ribbon and silk flowers to put on the cake and it was perfect!

We happened to get our wedding cake here because our reception hall had a contract with them. They wouldn't have been our first choice, but truly, the best wedding cake I have ever eaten! Not too sweet. We had a 5-tiered layer cake that we chose from a photo, and it looked perfect. They even got our wedding colors just perfect. Every time I see a box from them, I think, "ooh, is it cake?" I can't wait to eat our top layer at our 1 year anniversary. Oh, and the great thing is that because they have a log of our wedding cake, they said they can make a fresh one for following years! Delicious!

I really liked my cake -- the way it looked, the way it tasted, but I had something very specific in mind that they wouldn't cater to because we were working through the reception hall as part of a package. I guess it is something that no one will notice when they attend the wedding, but I found it disappointing.

They were pretty helpful. I didn't like the fact that I had to have butter cream and not whipped cream. The filling was fruit mixed with butter cream frosting. I didn't like it. I thought that it was too sugary. I would recomend them I just wish that I had Whipped cream. I didn't pay anything for the cake it was included in my reception site

They're very flexible in making changes in the cake to make your "dream wedding cake" happened. The cake itself is unbelievably tasty. Best wedding cake I've eaten!

Used this bakery for my wedding at White Pines. Very nice looking cake. When you go for a tasting, you may find yourself limited by the flavors and designs (several elements come at an extra cost). For a classic, relatively simple cake (marble/chocolate and raspberry filling) they did just fine.

For our wedding we opted to have cupcakes opposed to a cake. Not only were the cupcakes delicious, but they were beautiful as well. After doing our cupcake tasting we now take random rides out to this bakery just to try all of their other delicious treats!! This place is delicious, and everyone is so friendly.
