When we ended up searching for a cake vendor it was practically last minute because of other plans that had fallen through. So when we found Indy Cakes and learned that they were available and so reasonably priced we were so happy and relieved. The cake and cupcakes we received were very delicious, but not what we ordered. We had ordered pineapple filling in all of our cupcakes but not a single cupcake had the filling, which completely threw off the taste we wanted. After the wedding when I asked about it they kind of talked around a few things that made it seem like they weren't going to mention anything unless we noticed it and said something ourselves, then told myself and my husband different stories and lied. When I spoke with them they said that they didn't realize the filling was missing until they were in the car on the way to delivering everything to our venue, and never mentioned why they didn't say anything about it. Then, later when they talked to my husband had said that they didn't say anything because we were in the middle of our ceremony when they delivered and didn't want to bother us, however that is untrue because they delivered our cake/cupcakes at like 9:30/10am before I had even gotten to the venue to start getting ready. Makes me wonder if they messed up someone else's order that day too. I just don't understand how you can have an order, and not triple check it to make sure the customer is getting what they wanted. I will say though that when the mistake was brought to light they were willing to give a partial refund to make us feel better, but I still wish I got what I ordered.

Cannot say enough great things about Indy Cakes. I would absolutely recommend them to any person/party that needed any type of cake. Absolute best customer service, so friendly, flexible, and actually cared about the best way to design, decorate and deliver your wedding cake. The actual cake was wonderful. They allowed me to have each layer a different type of cake and mousse and the flavor was completely over the top. As for price, could not have asked for a more fair price in comparison with other local suppliers. You cannot go wrong with Indy Cakes. Cannot wait until my first anniversary where they deliver a single layer cake for your celebration.....at no charge! YAY!!!

Our cake was wonderful! We loved having our tasting with Kathy to discuss options, services, and timing. We both agreed on a beautiful photo and Indy Cakes delivered an exact replica. It was so delicious, as the bride I was sure to take some time to have some cake! Everyone was very complimentary of the cake.

This was for my daughter'd wedding, the flavor of the cake was great. They did well with the design of the cake. The color was completely wrong even though they had the exact fabric swatches. We were very dissapointed.

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!

Cake was ok but not as awesome as the cake was at the tasting. Colors were off a bit especially the purple! Looked black! Definitely not worth the cost
