Granny Schmidt’s bakery opened in September 2006 to bring best-in-class bakery products to customers who enjoy the marriage of high style and century-old goodness.

We don’t produce cakes by adding flavorings to factory supplied base mixes. We make every cake from scratch, often one at a time, using nothing you wouldn’t have found at the corner grocery a hundred years ago.

We bake our wedding cakes using the exact same recipes we use for our specialty and custom cakes. Read less

My husband and I went to several bakeries in the area trying to find a bakery that baked a wedding cake that actually tasted good, like a homemade cake and not something bland or gross. Most bakeries had mediocre cakes with cheap frosting. Granny Schmidt's by far had the best cake around, it actually tasted good unlike most wedding cakes I've had at other weddings. I kid you not, on our honeymoon my husband actually said at one point "I wish I still had our wedding cake to eat", it was that good.

I took a lot of time to think about how/if I was even going to write this Then I visited Granny Schmidt's Facebook page...To start, the cake was delicious. If this review was based on taste alone, it would be 5 stars. However, the cake looked nothing like we expected. My husband and I chose a three tier cake that looked like a birch tree. When I arrived at the venue the day of the wedding, our birch tree was yellow. It looked like a tree carved out of butter. Not at all like the picture sent over with our contract, or the birch tree I saw at Granny Schmidt's table at a bridal show (which was made out of fondant, while ours was buttercream) or the birch tree in their show room, and certainly not at all like an actual birch tree. I was pretty disappointed. Who has ever seen a yellow tree? Our wedding was September 17th. A picture of our cake is on Granny Schmidt's Facebook page (cake with K & J). Another birch tree cake (initials M & C) was posted to their Facebook page on September 11. These two cakes look NOTHING alike. The M & C cake is distinctly brown, while our cake is yellow. Again, disappointing to see the two cakes in comparison. When we called, Michelle asked "Well did people eat it"? Of course they ate it. It’s still cake. The point was, it looked nothing like the picture attached to the contract I signed. And the only response was "did they eat it"? Really? Michelle did give us a partial refund, but now seeing this other cake that was made just a week prior, I feel her response was a little indignant. Clearly, our cake was not what it was supposed to be. Yet, it was still sent out to our wedding looking as it did. Again, yes our guests ate the cake and it tasted VERY good. But it just was not what I signed a contract for. Wedding cakes are not cheap and to have the cake not turn out looking like what I signed off on does not sit well. And though Michelle did attempt to make things right, her verbal response just adds insult to "injury" at this point.

Hello Kathleen,
I am sorry your cake was not what you expected. Sadly, I did not speak to you. I spoke to your mother. Your mom explained about the color difference. I did try to tell her the cake in the photo was on a Gold Board with Brown and Fall colored leaves, etc.. you requested a white board with all Green leaves. Sometimes lighting from photographers etc.. can play a role in color change. I did ask your mom if the guests ate the cake because I wanted to make sure you were happy with the taste. It was difficult at times to speak with her because I assume it was your dad in the back round talking over her. So I was quiet until I could ask what they were looking for to make it right. I did refund them the portion of the cake they had requested.
The cake photo I had in your folder was one we previously did with the color variations I explained above. When you change a design in anyway sometimes it can vary in the look.
Again, I am sorry for the confusion. I appreciate you taking the time to write your thoughts.
I wish you and your new husband a wonderful life together!
Sincerely
Michelle

Michelle and her team are amazing. I must have had some of the craziest concepts when explaining what I wanted for my wedding cupcakes and cupcake "Topper" and there was no hesitation or confusion, just questions, notes and lots of excitement.
Their flavors are spot on, technique is amazing, and service is top notch. I will work again with Granny's any opportunity that I can

Our wedding cake was absolutely amazing! Not only was it beautiful, but it was delicious as well! Granny Schmidt's did such a great job with our request to have a cheesecake wedding cake and did exactly what we wanted for the design of it. We could not be more pleased with it! We also ordered cheesecakes for our guests and they were just as delicious and amazing! They put a lot of great work into our cakes and it was all done from scratch! They tasted fresh and they just went over the top for our wedding to make it so special for us! Thank you so much!

We ordered our wedding cake from Michelle and her team and we could not be happier! Michelle created a simple and elegant ivory cake for us. Our guests raved about the chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. Granny Schmidt's was accommodating, creative and listened to what we were looking for. We highly recommend this vendor for anyone getting married in the area!

Michelle was super fast to respond to all my questions and concerns. The ribbon I wanted on my cake was not what I expected, however the cake turned out beautiful and tasted amazing. She did not charge extra to add my own brooches to the design. The price was reasonable and she makes sure there is enough cake for everyone to have a good size serving and still have the top layer to save.

Our wedding cake was (and still is one week later) DELICIOUS!

Michelle, the owner at Granny Schmidt's takes so much pride in her creations which made me feel so great after our first meeting. She was honest and candid when we asked her opinion about things, which I really appreciated.

We had 100 guests and ordered a three tier cake along with a kitchen cake. To be honest, we probably didn't need the second cake but I can't complain about the leftovers!

We ordered chocolate and vanilla cake with a buttercream filling as well as a chocolate and vanilla cake with raspberry mousse filling. Michelle recommended that we go with a buttercream frosting instead of fondant... I was hesitant at first but she was able to execute the design that I wanted with the tasty buttercream instead of using the not so tasty fondant. The icing was delicious, it almost reminded me a little bit of eating a marshmallow... soo good! The raspberry mousse was also out of this world!

The cakes both exceeded our expectations and we would definitely recommend Granny Schmidt's to anyone who wants a top quality cake with all of the best ingredients, no preservatives and absolutely awesome texture and taste. Michelle is a pro and makes the selection process a breeze from start to finish.
