To begin the cake was beautiful and tasty. They did exactly what we wanted and we were happy with the product. The tasting experience on the other hand left a lot to be desired. The desk that we sat at for our tasting was in the middle of a very disorganized room. The cake was left out on a side table..uncovered...and pieces were cut an placed on a foam plate for us to try. I only mention this because I seriously thought about finding another place (our venue sent us here) because of the appearance of this office. We stuck with them and were happy with the product. I do hope they change the way the do tasting though it was pretty concerning as a bride.

"That was the best cake I've ever had in my life, and I don't even like cake" - seemed to be the theme of my wedding....I have never in my life tasted a cake like this, and to think I almost nixed the idea of having a cake!! It was chocolate cake layered with chocolate mousse and cheesecake topped with vanilla cake and whipped cream frosting...
And it LOOKED spectacular too!

Don't get me wrong - Homestyle Bakery makes the best tasting cakes and desserts. Literally - so yummy. However, we had difficulty getting a hold of them to set up a tasting. When I finally did get someone on the phone, the snotty girl I spoke to hung up on me when I asked for a cake tasting more than 3 months in advance. As a bride who was planning a destination wedding (we got married at Bear Mountain - I was planning from Cleveland) it was difficult for me to come into town to do this - why could we not arranging a tasting sooner? It made no sense to me. While we tried a few different bakeries in the area - we ultimately came back to them only beacsue they have an account with our venue and we wouldn't get enough $ back from them to purchase the type of cake we wanted.
Luckily, I came into town a month before the wedding and they made an appointment with us. We went in a bit hesitant, but ended up having a seamless experience. The tasting was great, and to top it off, I had this picture of a cake I had ripped out of a magazine when I was a child and showed it to the baker hoping she could give me something like it. She said "No problem" and ended up making the exact replica - it was perfect.
The desserts were so good we ended up ordering a smaller cake and cookies for the rehearsal dinner we had across the street from the bakery at the Peekskill Brewery. So while I am checking that I would "recommend this vendor to a friend" I would do so only if you are in the area and can deal with a little drama.

Can I give a "5-star" rating on taste too? Because our wedding cake was D E L I C I O U S!!! Not to mention beautiful! Our guests all asked for 2nd pieces!! Working with you was easy, your cakes are beautiful and taste… amazing. What more could I ask for? We had the chocolate cake with cheesecake and strawberry filling… highly recommended! I will never get a cake or pastry from anywhere else. You've converted me and my family to lifelong customers. You do amazing work, thank you so very much! I'd recommend you to anyone.

We found homestyle through our caterer Jean-Jacques. They were easy to work with and the cake not only looked beautiful, but tasted delicious. Our guests are still talking about how good the wedding cake was.

Our meeting with them was easy, which was appreciated during such a stressful time. They kept everything very simple. I showed them a few photos on pinterest of ideas I wanted and they did the rest.

Our cake was a beautiful fall themed 4 tier cake with leaves (fake) on it. It was stunning and delicious!

We got the carrot cake (yum...), with the magnolia design. Which was all white with the white flowers running along the cake, so no topper was needed. Simple and elegant.

The cake was nice and moist, of course with the real cream cheese icing. Unfortunately, was not able to take the top home for our 1st year anniversary. Live in California and it wouldn't have made the trip :(

Our cake from the Homestyle Desserts Bakery was included with our wedding package at the Bear Mountain Inn. We met with Rose, the owner, and she certainly knew how to sell us on the amazing cannoli-flavored cake. We had so many guests come up to us and say that they usually found wedding cakes bland and unmemorable, but just loved ours--and a number of people asking us to break out the leftovers at the brunch my in-laws threw the next day! The lavender and green edible flowers were just gorgeous!

Homestyle Bakery provided our wedding cake and also a specialized cake for our rehearsal dinner. In addition to that, I have had their cake on several different occasions (birthdays, graduations etc) over the last 4 years.

Homestyle cakes are simply the very best. Our wedding cake was really moist and delicious. It looked exactly like the photo from their book of cake options - gorgeous. They added our ribbon and jewelry accents in the perfect way.

All our guests raved about the cake and we saw lots of people taking photos of it because it was so pretty.

While we didn't specifically seek out Homestyle Bakery as the venue we had booked used them for all their cake needs we couldn't have been happier!

Homestyle was super easy to work with in terms of what kind of cake we wanted and how we wanted it decorated. The cake was also DELICIOUS and everyone raved about it!

We now live near the bakery and I can say, their pastries and other cakes are just as good as their wedding cakes. If you can, definitely use Homestyle for all your Wedding Cake needs.

We used Homestyle Bakery primarily because they worked with our vendor, and included the cost of the cake in the overall costs. So, I understand that we got a good deal because of this.

First of all, I do want to say that the cake itself was very good and the decorations (colorful fall leaves) fit into our theme very well. Everyone seemed to enjoy the cake as well, so I have few complaints about any of that.

The one thing I'd have to say that threw me off was the quality of customer service the day we went to discuss the cake. We weren't shown a large variety of cake flavors (possibly because it was included in our cost, rather than off the street customers) and we ended up with chocolate and vanilla, I feel like because not many other options were available. (Though it was good chocolate and vanilla). I also felt like the cake turned out the way I wanted because I had a vision of what I wanted going in, rather than due to guidance from the woman helping us.

All in all, the cake did turn out well and just enhanced what was already a lovely day. Honestly, had we paid for the cake separate from our other expenses, I may have been a bit less thrilled with them, but because it was part of the cost, I feel like we definitely got a very good deal.

Quality & Apperance of Wedding Cake: 5 Stars
Quality of service: 1.5 Stars

There is a part of me that wants to give these guys 5 stars, since my wedding cake came out more beautiful and more delish than I ever could have dreamed. On the other hand, the disorganization of HS was so frustrating--and the last thing I needed right before my wedding.

The cake tasting was very disappointing. We were told to call 1 week before, and also the night before to confirm that the flavors we wanted to try would be available. We were told that red velvet would be available, but double choc would not. Reg choc would be, however.

When we got there, there were only 2 cakes to taste--white and lemon. No chocolate at all. We got to try a partially frozen red velvet cupcake. The overall "experience" was unpleasant, with Rose eating her very oniony subway sandwich at our table while we tried to sample cakes. Anyway, our venue was contracted with HS, so we went with them anyway.

On the Sunday 1 week before my wedding, while on my bachelorette in AC, I got a call from a very annoyed woman at HS telling me to pick up my cake. Naturally I freaked. I told the woman that my wedding was the following Sunday, and that the cake was to be delivered. I also told her that I "hoped" the cake wasnt done already and they were going to put it into the fridge for a week. She passed me to 4 different people--most of whom were rude--before I got to one woman (might have been Rose) who told me everything was fine and rushed me off the phone.

The Wed before the wedding, I got a call that they couldnt find my Photoshop rendering of the cake!! Again, they were rude, and kind of implied that it was my fault for giving it to them too far in advance. I agreed to email them a new one. But at this point, my (now) husband contacted our venue and told them they needed to take charge with what was going on with our cake.

After Bear Mountain contacted HS, we got an appologetic phone call, and confirmation that everything would go ahead as scheudualed and as per my design (for which we were paying a nominal additional fee).

In the end, I cannot emphasize how absolutely beautfiull my cake turned out--or how insanely delicious it was. Everyone said it was the best wedding cake they ever had--and I agree!

It was fresh and moist, the buttercream was creamy and not cloyingly sweet, the cream cheese filling was to die for, and the chocolate covered strawberries were scrumptious!

Hands-down, the best wedding cake I have ever eaten--I just wish the process had been smoother.

My family has been getting cakes from Homestyle Bakery since before I was born. A family owned business with a lot of experience. When I found out that my venue was going to use Homestyle for the cake I got excited because I was planning on using them anyways. I only had one visit for deciding the cake because I moved away and was doing all the planning from home. But it only took that one visit for them to connect with what I wanted and the cake came out perfect. I received so many compliements from our guest about how wonderful our cake was.

My family has been getting cakes from Homestyle Bakery since before I was born. A family owned business with a lot of experience. When I found out that my venue was going to use Homestyle for the cake I got excited because I was planning on using them anyways. I only had one visit for deciding the cake because I moved away and was doing all the planning from home. But it only took that one visit for them to connect with what I wanted and the cake came out perfect. I received so many compliements from our guest about how wonderful our cake was. I wouldn't change it for anything. I plan on doing more business with Homestlye in the future as it seems only right because it has been in a way a family tradition. Read less

Cake was delicious, however it was difficult to get a hold of someone to make an appointment

Falkirk Estate and Country Club uses Homestyle Bakery for all of their wedding cakes so I do not know the cost (which is why I gave a 5.0 rating for value for cost). We chose a modified version of one of their cake designs, which suited our tastes. The design choices were enough for us, but they might not be for a person who would like something new or unique. I gave a 5.0 for responsiveness because a woman at the bakery stayed late at the store for me to drop off the ribbon I wanted to use on the cake and because the store was prompt in scheduling my appointment and answering calls with any questions that I had. I gave a low rating for professionalism because the woman we met with for our tasting was texting throughout the appointment and did not provide any information unless we directly asked a question. The cake tasting was good, but I did not like that we couldn't choose the flavors to taste. My finance and I liked different types of cake and filling, and the best part is that we were able to include everything. I got my chocolate mouse with chocolate cake and he got his vanilla custard and yellow cake, and we added a layer of raspberry jam between the layers. The combo was amazingly delicious, and the finished product in design was very pretty and exactly what we had envisioned. (I also highly recommend a stop in the bakery just to get some of their pastries, cookies, and bread, though maybe not while you're trimming down for the wedding :)

I was really happy with how my wedding cake came out. I had a difficult time verbalizing what I wanted for the cake, but Julie was able to understand my vision and made a really unique cake that matched the rustic theme I was going for. Best of all, it was a cannoli cake; big hit at my mostly Italian wedding! I also recommend the cannoli dippers that the bakery offers; they are a fun little extra that my guests really enjoyed.

The wedding cake had a butterfly effect and it was gorgeous, and very tasty.
I also bought the Almond Delights which are mid size cupcakes, and Rose the owner put a butterfly on the top of each cupcake.
Wonderful service!

Literally the best cake I have ever had!! We even bought cookies there when we had our cake tasting and they were the best I have ever had in my life and outweighed Rockland Bakery's pastries as well as B&W bakery in Hackensack. Make the trip to Homestyle Bakery. You will not be disappointed.

Tasting was great and employees were very easy to work with. We had cupcakes as our wedding cake and they decorated them very nice! The only thing was the cupcake tower was not that sturdy so we couldn't get a cake topper on top at all.

Although they provided the wrong cake for our wedding, they were quick to fix the situation. We did not end up with the right design for our cake, but it wasn't the end of the world for us. We ended up cutting the wrong cake, but they sent sheet cakes to be cut behind the scenes and served to our guests. So everyone ate the cake we selected and it tasted terrific, but the actual 4 tier cake wasn't what we had chosen. It all worked out in the end. The 4 tier cake was still gorgeous, just not exactly what we had in mind.

I used homestyle bakery since they were the vendor that Patriot Hills uses as park of the package. I did have the option to go else where. The tasting was delish, I went with 4 of my friends. We all tastes a single bite of 4 different cakes and fillings. Cake tasting are nothing like you see in the movies or on TV. I always wanted mini cakes for my guests and Homestyle was able to provide them and they coordinated with my flowers.

Homestyle made us the cake of our dreams! When we went into the tasting we had a preconceived notion of what we wanted, we made a complete 180! They had flavor combinations that we were not expecting and we walked away so much happier than we ever thought. They delivered to Manhattan for us day of without an issue. We still have people raving about what an amazing cake we had! We still make a trek to them every year for anniversary pasteries. It's a couple of hours for us to get there, but they are JUST THAT GOOD!!!
