Fleckenstein's Bakery is well known in the south Chicagoland Area for creating the finest wedding cakes available thanks to the hard work of our devoted team of Bob, Joan, Ray, and Ross Fleckenstein. They insist that a wedding cake is not created more than 24 hours in advance of the reception. They work long hours on the weekend to ensure the freshest cake for your wedding. Typically, while you are at your dress rehearsal, they haven't even started your cake yet. This isn't reason to fret, but to relax, knowing that we will take care of everything and have perfect timing with our delivery. The family team pays every attention to detail, which starts with the baking of the delicious cake layers. Fleckenstein's Bakery engineers and assembles those layers from the bottom up to create a cake that is structurally sound and stands the test of time (unless a tipsy guest falls into the table!). They will beautifully ice your cake to a smooth as glass finish. Finally, your cake is decorated with the utmost precision and patience. After the cake is completed at the bakery, your cake is carefully driven to the hall and set up by Ray or Ross. Bob, Joan, Ray, and Ross feel that creating your wedding cake is the most important job they do. It is because they feel this way that they leave nothing to chance and personally do all the work on your cake. After all, their reputation is at stake. Read less

Fleckenstein's has the best cakes I have ever tasted. We went with them for our bridal shower cake and the wedding cake and are always pleased with their products. Our wedding cake was beautifully decorated and tasted delicious! We will definitely be getting all of our cakes for every occasion from them!

After a bit of a rocky start, we managed to have a better experience second time around. Originally, my fiance and I made an appointment for a consultation and when we arrived, we were greeted warmly by all the employees there. Unfortunately, we waited about 45 minutes to have our consultation, but never had it and decided to leave. A few days later, Mr. Fleckenstein called to reschedule and explain why we were not met with that day. The second consultation proved to be very helpful and he took his time to go over all the pricing options as well as listen to what we were hoping to do.

I ordered 60 cupcakes and a small 8 inch cutting cake for my wedding. I love cupcakes and this fit my personality perfectly. When I went in to meet with the man who does the wedding cakes, I told him what I had in mind. The response I got to my cupcake request was appalling. He rolled his eyes and looked annoyed. He even said "You're REALLY going to give your guests cupcakes?". I said yes I want cupcakes and then a small cutting cake...once he realized that I was serious he quickly scribbled down a bunch of stuff without even asking me what kind of wedding cake I wanted! I finally had to ask if I could get fudge filling in my cake and then he looked aggravated once again because he had to write out a new ticket for it. My cake was very good, but only go here if you want a big fancy wedding cake. They like to make money more than they like to treat their customers with respect.

Fleckenstein's Bakery responded with the following comments:

Hello "Private User". We are sorry that you had an unpleasant experience ordering your wedding cupcakes. The man who took your order is Mr. Fleckenstein and he is 80 years-young. Although I believe that is how you felt while ordering, I don't think I ever saw Mr. Fleckenstein roll his eyes. He is usually very reserved, calm, and accommodating. I hope you continue to rely on FLECKENSTEIN'S BAKERY for your baking needs.

A friend of mine recommended Fleckenstein's. Our meetings with Mr. Fleckenstein were always a little awkward -- they were never really to the point, and he even tried to argue with us at first when I said I wanted sheet cakes and a smaller tiered cake. We were glad to know that he was so knowledgeable and passionate about making cakes. We were really impressed though when he gave us a whole cake with different flavors for us to try in our first meeting -- they tasted SO good -- and then at another meeting when he was able to mix colors together to create the exact color we were wanting. But that's where the trouble began. We had specifically asked for a white cake with two different shades of purple and mint as the accent colors -- we even brought in paint swatches that he put with our file. But every time we called, he had down that we wanted a white and red cake, and we had to correct him every time -- even the week before. I was really looking forward to seeing the cake that we had specially designed -- I had spent a lot of time looking at different designs, and I was especially excited about our colors. But when I got to the reception after our ceremony, I was horrified to see that our cake was white and RED. I think Mr. Fleckenstein was genuinely horrified that they had made a mistake as well and refunded our money for the cake, but unfortunately you can't go back and change time. He'd even made a fairly big deal that the cake is the thing that "everyone looks at before the bride gets there," and ours ended up not even being what I had been dreaming of. It was SO disappointing, and even months later it still frustrates me thinking about it.

My husband and I ordered our wedding cake from Fleckenstein's and we absolutely love the cake-they did such a wonderful job decorating it the way we wanted it and it tasted absolutely wonderful-we are usually not cake eaters! Their baked goods are great as well, we would get a donut or a chocolate pecan every time we would come in there.

Our wedding cake was absolutely beautiful, and it tasted just as great! Not a single slice of cake went un-eaten, which is saying something since we had ~100 guests and the cake was supposed to feed 125! We had one tier lemon cake/lemon filling, and the other tier was white cake/raspberry. Great people to work with. Highly recommend!!

To say that my cake was amazing would be an understatement. Not only was my cake beautiful, but it tasted great also! I received so many compliments on my cake. Mr. Fleckenstein took the exact picture I had in my head and brought it to life. I would definitely choose Fleckenstein's for any other events I have in the future.

The owner asked me how many people I am having at my wedding, I told him 158. So he said that I need a cake for 165. I said not everyone eats cake and I don't want to waste any. He would NOT allow me to get a cake any smaller then 165. He told me that I need to save the top layer to eat on my 1st anniversary. I told him I rather just have the top layer be apart of the cake I am serving on my wedding day. He would NOT allow me to include the top layer for my head cake. My cake was all white with Roses coming down the front. The Flowers SHOULD HAVE BEEN a deep fall colors, the roses came out NEON!!!!! He had my wedding color samples. I was mortified when I saw my cake!....... The end of the night HALF of my wedding cake was thrown away and so was the top layer!!!!!!! I was pissed to waste that much cake!!!!!!

This bakery by far had some of the best cake I have ever tasted. In addition to the taste they did a beautiful job creating what we wanted. We also weren't sure what to get in the beginning and the staff was very helpful with suggesting and letting us take our time to decide.
