Hippie Chick Bakery is a private cake studio, using the finest quality ingredients, organic and locally grown whenever possible. We make everything by hand from scratch and bake it fresh, that is why we truly are “quality with a conscience.”

While our regular cakes are made with fresh eggs, creamery butter, and other fine ingredients, we are also known far and wide for our Dairy-free, Egg-free, Vegan, Wheat-free and Gluten free cakes. Our facility is peanut and tree nut free. We can also accommodate other diet requirements by special order, such as soy and corn free, so please let us know what your needs are to see if we can help you too. We have been making these kinds of cakes for years, giving us the experience and the expertise to make a cake that looks as wonderful as it tastes. You may find other bakeries making these cakes, but only here will you find the high level of decorating skills to create the perfect cake that your special event deserves.

Weddings cakes are our passion, and we treat our wedding couples the way that we would want to be treated – we meet with you in a private consultation where you can taste our cakes and together we will design a wedding cake just for you. We limit our wedding cake bookings, so that we can take the time to give the personal service that you and your wedding deserve.

We have been a enviromentally conscious business from day one - for us it is not a trend to jump on, it is our mission. If the enviroment is a concern of yours as well, please know that at Hippie Chick Bakery, it is not just given lip service- it is a concern and factor in every decision we make. From using green energy when possible and using carbon offsets when we can't, composting waste, sourcing local ingredients, to recycling, and much more!

We love our customers, and we look forward to you becoming one of them! Please let us know how we can help you! Read less

Hippie Chick Bakery was part of our package through Clay Hill Farm, and we are so happy it was recommended (which made the decision easy and convenient). We met with Amy several months before our Oct 2nd wedding, and did a cake testing. She had several varieties of cake and frostings of our choosing from their large selection. We went with several different varieties (I think 4 different combinations of frosting and cakes for the cupcakes, and a different one for the two tiered cake), and she was open to a last minute change we had as well. She did beautiful artwork on our the cake (which was also very reasonably priced), and our guests LOVED the cupcakes. I cannot wait to eat more of the cake on our first year anniversary!
Side Note: One of our guests has a tree nut allergy and never gets to eat cake at weddings....Hippie Chicks is a tree nut free facility so he was able to enjoy the delicious dessert !

Amy was a pleasure to work with. We loved that she offers vegan flavors, which were delicious. The cake tasting was a highlight of our wedding planning, in part due to her friendly chickens in the backyard :) She thoughtfully designed the cake to be a perfect compliment to our wedding theme, and the final product was beautiful.

I am vegan and my nephew has a nut allergy. I initially chose to meet with Amy at Hippie Chick Bakery because her facility is dedicated nut free. When I went to her shop I was very impressed with her whole operation. I told her what I wanted and I tasted many cake and frosting flavors. I was happy. I think I had pretty high expectations because I absolutely love cake and was really looking forward to my wedding cake. Amy exceeded my expectations when I saw the cake for the first time. It was absolutely beautiful. I could not have asked for anything better. And for the size (five tiers) and the quality, I think the price was more than reasonable. My guests (most of whom were not vegan) loved the cake and my nephew could eat it without fear of an allergy attack. It was perfect. I highly recommend Hippie Chick Bakery.

Amy did an amazing job on our Vegan Mountain wedding cake. I can't even count how many guests said it was the coolest cake they have ever seen. We also appreciated that she was able to deliver over 2 hours away. We highly recommend Amy!

I was very excited to have Hippie Chick make a vegan gluten free wedding cake after I tasted several flavors and chose marble with mocha filling. Because of all the glowing reviews, I felt confident that we would have a beautiful cake that I could eat and that our guests would also enjoy. Unfortunately that is not what happened. The cake was delivered over an hour later than promised, but the design was lovely with our cake topper and it was set up just prior to our guests entering the reception room. However it was not the cake I'd ordered and I now suspect that it was delivered so late because Amy screwed it up. Instead of a light chocolate/vanilla swirl marble cake like what I'd sampled a year before, it was very dense and appeared to be a layer of dark chocolate and another beige colored layer with something crunchy in it. One guest said to me (before I'd tasted it), "you're brave to have a cake with nuts in it." I wondered what she was talking about! My Mother took one bite, thought it was a fruit cake (that's how heavy it was) and put it down. My new husband also had only one bite, then went to the caterer's dessert table. I didn't realize till the next day when I opened the box with the top layer that the caterer had given us as we left the reception that this was not a marble cake. I was so disappointed. I left Amy a message and sent an email. She sent a very curt reply to my email that it was a marble cake and that she would not discuss it with me. As I got more negative feedback from my family & friends about the cake over the next couple of days, I sent Amy 2 follow-up emails which she ignored. I don't write negative reviews unless I'm extremely upset or disappointed, and this experience with Hippie Chick certainly qualifies.

hippie chick bakery responded with the following comments:

I debated on responding to this review, but as my reputation is being maligned, I feel I must.
Various people have suggested to me that the real issue here must be that the wedding went over budget and Teresa is trying to recoup costs. I only know what I will state here.

The day after her wedding, Teresa left a phone message detailing all the things she felt were wrong with her wedding cake. She outright stated that we "owed her some money". She also threatened that if I did not give her money, she would write negative reviews on the internet. The result of my refusal to be blackmailed is what you see here.

All of her initial complaints were proven false. She claimed the design was wrong, I provided a picture of the cake and the design sketch which were identical. She claimed her day was ruined because the cake delivery was late, but later admitted that it was in place before her guests arrived, that we had been in contact with her wedding coordinator to advise of a traffic delay, and that she was not even aware until the following day that delivery was delayed.
In an new attempt to find fault, she changed all of her complaints to new ones that she had no evidence of and I could not as easily disprove - the cake was the wrong flavor (it wasn't), that it wasn't the same as what she had sampled (it was) and that it had nuts in it which she didn't like (I am completely a nut free facility, there were no nuts)

I responded to her via email, and due to her threat said that I would only respond to her in writing. Her allegation of me being curt and saying I would not discuss it are completely false, I still have the email in my files.

I appreciate my customers and want them to be satisfied. If there was any validity to her complaints, I would have strived to make things better in any way I could. That is not what happened here. I hope the anomaly of this review in view of all the others shows this clearly

We had Hippie Chick make our gluten free wedding cake for us and cupcakes for our guests. We discussed what we wanted and they made it come alive. When we saw the presentation, it was exactly what we pictured. Our guests LOVED it and we couldn't have been more please.

Hippie Chicks bakery came with the all-inclusice wedding package through Clay Hill Farms. I am glad that they did. Hippie Chicks bakery worked within our buget for the all inclusive, however was flexible to give use a smaller cake and a grooms cake. We even got to pick two different flavors of cake and icing for the two cakes. They were very professional and the cakes tasted amazing.
