Indy Cakes does not stand behind their work. I did not receive the cake that we had agreed upon at our final planning meeting. We had ultimately agreed upon a cake that had black and red accents, to coordinate with our black cake topper. The face of the contract clearly states that the cake would have red and black accents; however, apparently the employee we met with failed to translate this to the sketch provided to the decorator. The cake we received had entirely red decoration on it, making our cake topper look out of place. When I contacted Jill at Indy Cakes regarding this issue, she refused to acknowledge that they made a mistake, and had absolutely no explanation as to why the contract stated red AND black accents, but there was absolutely no black anywhere on the cake. I had no choice but to accept the cake at our reception, but I am very disappointed at their customer service and refusal to recognize or rectify their mistake.

Indy Cakes responded with the following comments:

We always strive to provide our clients with the cake that they want at their wedding. To this end, we sign a contract with the bride and attach a sketch with notes regarding colors and design elements. While this bride's contract indicates that her accent colors were black and red, the sketch we reviewed with her, and she approved, VERY CLEARLY indicted which elements were to be done in red and which were to be done in black. The red elements were the damask pattern, and scrollwork piping, with borders being done in black. She subsequently changed the border to also be red, with no mention of changing any other elements of the cake design. The border changes were clearly marked on both the contract and the sketch. At no point in any of our meetings did she request that the damask or scrollwork pattern be done in black, or these changes would have been made, as were her changes to the border colors. We decorated the cake as was outlined in the contract that was discussed with and approved by her. We never want our brides to be disappointed with their cake, which is why we have a contract for them to sign and review. We are disappointed that this bride would find fault in us decorating the cake as was clearly outlined by her contract.

They were an excellent company to work with. I gave them pictures, color swatches and a pretty complicated design request and they were very accommodating. They delivered the cake to my reception venue in the worst possible weather that day and had it set up perfectly. The cake not only was pretty, it tasted great! The value for the service and flavor of the cake were the best around! I would highly recommend using Indy Cakes versus the higher priced north side vendors if your wedding is in the Indianapolis area. They deliver great tasting cakes, personalized service and a fantastic value!

Indy Cakes makes beautiful wedding cakes. We had a great time tasting cakes and designing our's. The staff is very friendly & helpful. However, I wish our cake would have stayed together longer than a few minutes after bring delivered. Due to the type of icing & fondant we chose the fondant decorations started to fall off when a light breeze blew on the cake. Our cake was absolutely gorgeous upon delivery. It just didn't stay that way for long. We took pictures immediate to preserve our memories of its beauty but was disappointed & embarrassed for ourselves and our guest to see if fall apart so fast. Thanks Indy Cakes for making our wedding cake look beautiful. Next time, let your clients know more about their icing if it won't hold the fondant in place so we can change it. Thanks!

Going into our wedding planning I knew I wanted things to be different and I was worried I wouldn't find a bakery will to do different and not charge us an arm and a leg to do so. Indy Cakes went above and beyond!! Our cake was four tiers; four different flavors and fillings; and absolutely perfect. 1/2 of the cake was hot pink and the other 1/2 was charcoal grey with a cascade of flowers down it at an angle. NOT white and not traditional and it was beautiful!! It was delicious on top of it and we also order cake balls which I caught people fighting over!! I can't wait for our 1 year to get our FREE cake from them!!

Indy Cakes was the second cake place we tried out. Our first visit with another vendor was horrible, and really made me nervous about our appointment with Indy Cakes. Once we got there though, I knew from the start it was going to be completely different than our last appointment. They were very welcoming. We sat down and started going over what we wanted in the cake and how we wanted it to look. Kathy was who helped us. But we delt with Jill down the line, and she was wonderful as well. Kathy pulled out magazines for us to look through to see what kind of styles we liked. I had a picture of what I wanted the cake to resemble and gave that to her. We just worked from there as to what we'd like the flowers on the cake to look like, which were going to be silk, as well as the cake topper. Then we got to the cake tasting, and oh my gosh! That is what non box cake should taste like!! So moist, and just an all around great taste to it! We even decided to do the Groom's cake through Indy Cakes, and I surprised my now husband with an AWESOME flat bed truck cake (he's a truck driver)! Not to mention, again, great taste and flavor to the cake! I highly suggest you check out Indy Cakes before you make your cake decisions! They are truely wonderful and love what they do, and it shows through their cakes!

Indy Cakes was recommended to me by my wedding planner. I have a total sweet tooth but my husband does not. It says a lot that he was impressed with their cakes and fillings! We tried myriad combinations of cakes and fillings at our tastings. We settled on 3 different combinations, for each tier. While we didn't get to eat much, we heard nothing but compliments from our guests and I personally noticed certain guests going back for more than one serving of cake! They do provide a first anniversary cake, which is great. No one wants freezer-burnt cake anyway.

Our cake was very pretty but did not match the picture we gave them. On the picture was silver, white and black swirls coming from corners and when we got the cake it only had black swirls. We blindly asked for handmade stargazer lillies that were royal blue and they were perfect handmade but not even the slightest royal blue, more of a bright sky blue. However, the cake tasted amazing even though the tiers were mixed up, we asked for the top tier to be red velvet and the middle tier was. However, they cake came in one piece and we enjoyed it and cannot wait for our one year free anniversary top tier.

Jill and Kathy at Indy Cakes were helpful in the beginning, and they were quick to answer any questions I had. Their prices were cheaper than most other bakeries as you get as many flavors and fillings as you want for free. However about a week before my wedding Jill called me and told me they ordered the wrong number of stands, 2 less than I needed, and that they only had a 116 person cake instead of the 154 serving we had talked about at the consultation. Jill called me and kept asking me what I wanted to do about the stands, and even made me send her a picture that SHE drew at the consultation to confirm the number of stands and servings. Obviously they did not take good enough notes. I later get a call from Kathy saying that they knew my cake was 154 servings, and there must have been a miscommunication. That was confusing and frustrating. I also had to call and resay everything I had put down on the contract, things like the total number of cakes and that I was saving the top layer. I will say they worked to fix the problem, I had the correct number of stands and flavors for my wedding, however that was after many calls and headaches that I did not need so close to my wedding. To top it off, after the wedding I received a snippy call from Kathy wondering when I was going to return the cake stands; not very professional. Overall, they got the job done, but if you care about costumer service and don't want to clean up after them, I wouldn't recommend them.

We\'ve seen many pictures of this vendor\'s other wedding cakes, so we were excited that they\'d be making our wedding cake. Their other cakes are very pretty, so maybe we just had expectations too high. But...what we ended up with wasn\'t what we had visualized. The colors were much brighter than we had anticipated or asked for (the pale yellow we requested ended up being quite bold, and the two tones of blue that ended up being used seemed to clash), and it was otherwise very plain, with no decorations around the top edges of any layer. It felt like they got to our cake that day...and just DIDN\'T CARE...maybe because we were a couple from out of state, or maybe it was just too much cake to decorate. The bride and groom were put on the cake backwards (the bride is wearing rain boots visible only from one side, and the point of using that particular couple was the umbrella and the cute boots that ended up not being visible...the side with the boots is always what is displayed in pictures online and on the box). There was supposed to be a light-up castle on top of the cake...and they didn\'t put the light in it. If there was a problem with the castle, we wish we\'d have been notified the day before or morning of the reception, because we went out of our way just to order that particular castle due to the light! It also appeared to be haphazardly plopped up on top of the cake with no decorations around it...it just looked awkward, and not like the photo we\'d used for inspiration. My husband wanted a fountain (and even though I am not a fan of fountains anymore, it was important to him so we did it). I felt like they were making fun of the fountain idea and thus didn\'t give a care about the whole cake. Yes...it did taste good, but it didn\'t seem like it was up to par with the other cakes we\'d seen in their pictures.

Indy Cakes responded with the following comments:

We were very disappointed to see this review as the comments we heard while setting up and upon return of the stand were how beautiful the cake was. We care about all of our couples, regardless of whether or not they are local and we put a lot of time and effort into decorating this very large cake. We would never make light of a couple's chosen design and have done many fountain designs in the past and since this wedding.
The colors that were used were matched to the colors that was provided by the bride. The design was also provided by the bride and matched the photo given. Please note that we have added a photo of the cake in our photos. The bride was to provide fresh flowers to go under the two side cakes as well as around the fountain.
As far as the castle not being lit, there were no batteries or light provided for the topper, so it would not have been able to be lit. Had batteries or a light been provided, we would have turned on the topper. Also, the bride and groom were not facing backwards, as you can see in the photo. If they had been facing the other direction, her arm would have covered his face.
Again, we always want to provide the best for our clients, and we believe that we provided a beautiful cake that matched the colors and design specifications that we were given.

Jill with Indy Cakes is great. She was so flexible, even after we changed our minds completely on the cake we wanted. The cake we chose was so delicious, our guests all commented on how it was one of the best tasting wedding cakes they had.

Indy Cakes did an amazing job on our wedding cake! I gave them a picture from a magazine and they replicated it to a tee! They gave us lots of choices for flavors and all of them were delicious. I am very happy with Indy Cakes!

I couldn't have asked for a better cake. The cake tasting was actually one of my favorite parts of planning--they have tons of flavors and combinations with the fillings and we got lots and lots of compliments on it. They were very easy to work with and did not have lots of little fees after quoting you a price. They were very straight and upfront. I even had a grooms cake for my husband---he's a VTech grad and they created a hookie bird to go on top of the cake! A+++++ experience

OMG! Do not use Indy Cakes!!

Our cake tasting went amazing...it was a huge bait and switch deal the cake does not taste the same, they barely put any filling if you chose a filling....The icing was NOT BUTTERCREAM!!! I bake I know these things.....It was that powdered sugar fluff recipe that's as easy as 1 2 3 and taste exactly like powdered sugar...GROSS!!

The middle tier was horrible and 100% the opposite of what I asked for.....The color's were supposed to be hotpink and kelly green even wal-mart prepackaged would have been better than what Indy cakes gave us......Jill during my final "meeting" which wasn't a meeting because after your cake tasting and you pay deposit you have to come back 2 weeks before wedding to tell them what you want and they refuse to make an apt for that....you have to just show up.....I didn't like that but did it any ways and it was during that final apt I noticed my happiness fading as Jill said she's got to rush us out because some lady in Carmel wants cupcakes delivered....sooooo some lady in Carmel's $20 cupcakes are more important that my $400+ WEDDING CAKE!!!

I really did not deserve this....I chose local business because I'm all about supporting Indy and I really wanted this place to work out.....I was going to order my sister in laws baby shower cake from here as I was thinking In the next couple years I'll order mine from there as well....which would be thousands of dollars within a couple years......I was just really excited to help Indy Cakes not fail.....but they did in my eyes.....My heart is broke because this cake.
More so my disappointment continues as Jill told me it was 100% accurate colors as I stood in front of her with pics of the cake and my color swatch and she's like yeah it's right on and I'm thinking girl quit lieing.......she said that she doesn't know what happened from the time they delivered it to the time I saw it.........like what? really? huh?

Indy Cakes responded with the following comments:

Unfortunately, there are several items in this review that are simply false, so I feel I must respond.

First, the client did not order buttercream icing, they ordered marshmallow fondant icing as their cake would be placed outside during their reception. They were given samples of both our buttercream and our fondant at the tasting appointment, which is the exact same recipes used during decorating. It would simply be too much work to have a different recipe for tastings vs decorating.

The design on the middle tier was decorated exactly as requested. Only upon returning the stand did the client indicate that there was a special method she wished we had used during decorating. Had this been requested during the discussion regarding her design, I would have been able to inform her that we would not be able to complete the design in that manner as we do not have the specialty equipment necessary to do so. (The middle tier has stripes, which were laid over her layer of fondant. She, apparently, wanted them rolled into the fondant, which would have required a sheeter, as used in Cake Boss.)

While we do not require an appointment for finalizing designs, at no point was she told she could NOT make one. Most of our clients finalize their designs during their tasting appointment, or well ahead of the two week deadline for all details/payments. While I did have to leave for a delivery, this was after spending 45 minutes with the clients finalizing their design. This was less than 2 weeks before their wedding, and after having already completed an hour long tasting appointment for them several months earlier.

As far as the colors go, I have placed a photo of the colors used in our profile, as well as a photo of the completed cake. Please feel free to make your own judgements.

We do our best to satisfy all of our clients wishes and are saddened that this client was so disappointed, but we also recognize that even when all requests/demands are met, some people are simply never going to be satisfied.

IndyCakes made my November 2012 wedding cake. They were easy and pleasant to work with, prompt and professional, and willing and able to take a fairly abstract vision for cake design and make it exactly what we'd imagined. They and my reception venue handled the transporting and setting up of the cake so I had absolutely nothing to worry about, it was just there and perfect! The cake was beautiful and delicious, and IndyCakes makes a small anniversary cake on your one year anniversary so that you don't have to keep the top tier in your freezer, which I think is a very sweet touch. I would recommend IndyCakes to anyone, for any cakes, not just weddings!
