Very pretty wedding cake, I did notice it was slightly different from what I ordered. I ordered a raspberry preserve filling and received raspberry butter cream. I felt like the staff could have been more responsive as it always took a while to flag down the wedding cake specialist.

Dinkel's is on the same street as my wedding venue and I loved the idea of keeping lots of the wedding vendors local. We actually live in the area too.

My fiance and I easily set up a free cake tasting and everything was prompt that day. We were able to pre-select a few flavors of cake and frosting. There was a charge if you wanted more. The price was right and the cake was good so a few weeks later I returned to place an order for a simple two-tiered, buttercream white cake to feed 45 people. I gave the designer a photo to work from but I was pretty low key about the final product. With delivery it was $225, right in my budget.

I was very pleased with the cake when I saw it on my wedding day in May 2012. It looked very close to the photo I had provided and tasted great. I'd recommend Dinkel's for an affordable cake from a bakery that's been around forever.

Our cake was so delicious that people are still talking to me about it even 3 weeks later! Having lived near the bakery for awhile, there was no question we'd do a Dinkle's cake for our wedding. We went with a smaller presentation cake and two sheet cakes to serve (161 guests) and had so much left over!! Our presentation cake was gorgeous - exactly what I had in mind. We're looking forward to enjoying our top level on our anniversary. Thanks, Dinkles!

The best wedding cake EVER! We tried many bakeries and Dinkel's was by far the best tasting and it looked beautiful! We had so many compliments from our guests on the taste and decor. Not only was it the best tasting, it was also the best priced. We could not have been happier with our cake!

Dinkels is the best TASTING cake. But I would not recommened it for a wedding. The tasting was given by a very young and not very bright girl. She showed us plenty of pictures but had a hard time communicating even on the most basic level. She wrote down our info on the cake description of our choices...but when we went to order she never kept it. They made us come in to order and come in to pay instead of just organizing by phone after our initial consult. The cake ribbon was a grey like appearence which we wanted...but the portion that was supposed to be white also looked a dull grey. Not pretty to look at all, but yummy to eat. Very dissapointed in their specail occasion services.

Our family has been going to Dinkles for decades! They know cakes! You are invited for a tasting and that alone is a real treat. They will do anything you want them to do on the cake...pictures of your own are welcome. I was a little dissapointed that the cake design was a little crooked...but the flavor was out of this world! I recommend the yellow pound cake with chocolate mousse filling!

They did our wedding cake and favor cookies. They are expensive, but all their food is amazing. I only gave them a 4 in flexibility, because we had to buy our favors in bulk numbers and ended up with a lot of extras. Go try them, you will not regret it. Friendly and patient staff.

Overall, we were very happy with our wedding cake. We also ordered cupcakes which our guests really enjoyed. The only problem was the I showed them a photos of the type of flowers I wanted only on the top of the cake and put them all over the cake.
