We sought out Ithaca Bakery primarily for our wedding cake, but also ended up using them to cater our wedding related wine tour-- and both choices were well made! We started with a very positive experience with cake tasting. While We knew what kind of 'look' we were going for, we were fairly deeply divided on taste preferences. Though it may seem obvious to some, given that we had selected a two-level cake, it was a revelation to have our coordinator Heather suggest NOT compromising-- and making one level 'his' and one level 'hers'. To me, this was genius and something I had not considered as a viable option. With this idea, we efficiently concluded our plans and waited on our cake.

In the mean time, plans were evolving that required some sort of snack/lunch catering service. We went to Ithaca Bakery in hopes that they could simplify our lives once again and we received variety platters ( one cheese board, one hoagie platter) that delighted our guests (and our wallets). We were impressed with the quality of the items we received!

Ithaca Bakery provided all of the catering, bar, rentals, and wedding cake and desserts for our wedding. We had a great experience working with Niki and Ithaca Bakery and would definitely recommend them. Everything was just what we wanted, and they remembered all of the details we had discussed. Everything arrived on time and was set up beautifully. The staff were very professional, friendly, and unobtrusive. The food was great! We had several passed hors-d'oeuvres, and Cornell BBQ chicken, salmon, and pesto ravioli for dinner. The chicken and fish were grilled on site so they were very fresh, and we got lots of compliments on the food. They also made a nice vegan polenta for our one vegan guest. For dessert, they provided a small wedding cake and an assortment of mini-pies and cupcakes that were absolutely delicious. My only complaint would be that I often waited a number of days to hear back from them during the planning process. However, on the day of our wedding everything was perfect and we were very happy.

We used Ithaca Bakery for our wedding cake and are really happy we did; the cake was gorgeous, delicious and very affordable. We knew that we wanted a 'naked' carrot cake and Heather and her staff were able to execute exactly what we were looking for. We provided a few pictures and were very impressed with the outcome. We dropped off our cake topper and flowers which they beautifully incorporated.

To keep costs down we went with a two layer cake and then ordered a sheet cake for service; there was no difference in the quality and actually made service quicker than breaking down the layer cake.

We had a few guests with nut allergies; IB was not able to accommodate making a smaller cake without nuts for these guests. This lack of flexibility is the only negative from the experience. Overall, very happy we went with Ithaca Bakery for our cake.

We wanted a simple wedding cake for our restaurant reception because dessert was already being served. The crew at Ithaca bakery was a huge help! We got a 10 in. buttercream cake with raspberry ganache and it was so delicious! We did not want any crazy decorations, just simple whipped icing and they nailed it. The best part was the price- $30 for a four layer, 1 tier, 30 in cake!

We used Ithaca Bakery for my wedding cake and cupcakes for my wedding. Simply put - they were delectable and unforgettable. We chose a two-tier cake that was lemon cake, lemon buttercream frosting, and raspberry preserves as the filling between the cake layers, and supplemented with chocolate, vanilla, and carrot cake cupcakes. The cake was absolutely delicious - we had countless guests remarking on how tasty the cake was, and how the unique combination worked perfectly for a summer wedding. The cake and cupcakes were delivered promptly and without any issues - the overall look of the cake and cupcakes were EXACTLY what I had requested.

I highly recommend the Ithaca Bakery for your wedding cake and/or desserts - they are well-established, and did not disappoint at all with the end results for the wedding.

We were so incredibly happy with the Ithaca Bakery. Evita was incredible, always accommodating our every need. She was simply delightful to work with. She did an incredible job setting up the venue with her team, perfecting all the details just as we requested. She even went out of her way to find bright pink ribbon to tie on all the napkins for us. She was available at our every request and met with us multiple times before the wedding at the IB and the Farmers Market. We love Evita and recommend her and the Ithaca Bakery without any hesitation at all!

Perfect wedding cake! My husband and I had special requests for our cake, and Ithaca Bakery captured exactly what we were looking for. The cake was delicious, and well loved by our guests.

I was also planning this remotely and found them to be very easy to work and incredibly responsive!

The process of tasting the wedding cake, picking out the cupcake flavors, etc. was great. The main baker was wonderful and the taste test tipped the scales over others we were trying! However, the day of our wedding, when I arrived at the venue at 3:00 p.m., I was mortified to look over at our table and see that our cake and cupcakes were missing. They were supposed to have been delivered at noon. Our caterer had to call them to see what was going on. By the time we came back from the photos, at 5:00 p.m., the cake and cupcakes had been delivered. A few hours later when it came to our cake cutting and actually eating the cake, I was not happy when we tasted them. It seemed like the cupcakes had been frozen and then hadn't been thawed (not that I would have wanted pre-frozen cupcakes but I failed to ask if this is what they did for big events so that may be the norm). When we took a bite, the entire piece of frosting clumped off, each and every one we tried. A few friends commented that the cupcakes seemed off. I was so disappointed and embarrassed. I had loved the flavors and creaminess during the tasting, but these were such a big letdown. I love Ithaca Bakery for their food and continue to visit the business quite frequently. But I would not use them again for a big event.
