My cake from Jarosch was absolutely the best.

The first thing is, I came in one afternoon and said "hey I want a wedding cake, I know what I want, I want to pre-order it now, etc." - I had no appointment - therefore, the professionalism aspect was a 4.5 just because a high school girl took my order and she seemed to not be used to it - this was likely my fault for being too enthusiastic to call.

Well she took my order perfectly. I had a very small two tier cake, enough to feed 30 people, I believe. Round tiers. The fillings were butter cream, red velvet, and raspberry! The outside was a smooth buttercream with a "lacy design," some beading along the bottom of each tier.

I can tell you right now just in general, I hate cake. Take me to a birthday party, I will likely pick at the piece I'm handed and toss it. I LOVED my cake. I could eat this cake weekly and not get sick of it... and I'm supposed to hate cake!!

The best part is, I only had to put a portion down. The rest was due two weeks before my wedding. It was very reasonable in price. I also did not have to pay a delivery charge (or cutting charge, at that) because they were automatically affiliated with my choice of venue.

So overall, I love Jarosch, and I'm counting down the days until I can have my top tier for my anniversary!!

I liked this bakery the second I had my cake tasting. At first I was a bit uncertain of the professionalism of the establishment because I had sent them an email tasting inquiry from their site and they had never gotten back to me. But when I called them up a few days later, they were friendly and quick to accommodate me at schedule an appointment.

Once I walked it, I realized that it was a family run, small bakery and so they probably didn't have someone consistently manning the site and email responses. I had put down a $25 tasting fee before I walked into the bakery, which at first I was irked about, but not only did they tell me it would be deducted from my cake cost, should I get one from them, but I realized why they needed it; they had baked an entire cake with my requested cake flavors and frostings on each layer. Looking back on it, it seems that that would be the best way to give someone an idea of how a fresh cake would taste, but it was wonderful because I could take home the rest of the cake and have my husband, friends and family give me their input on the cake as well.

I only wanted a 14" round cake, no tiers, and they were very accommodating and willing to work with me. I got a red velvet cake and I provided them with some cake toppers and lots of decor toppers (Fake leaves, fake acorns, and paper flowers) for them to arrange as they saw fit. I told them they didn't need to use all of it my any means, but make it pretty, as I trusted their eye. While the cake I received was wonderful and beautiful, I was a bit surprised that they did in fact use all of the decor I gave them. It seemed a bit busy and crowded to me; but that was a very small concern of mine.

The cake itself was wonderful. I'm always a huge fan of red velvet, and this bakery knows how to do it right. I highly recommend their wares, they do beautiful work!

We loved our wedding cake. There is a $25 fee for the cake tasting, which includes a small 3-layer cake custom-baked for you with three flavors of cake and 2 frostings. This cost is deducted from your wedding cake if you book with them. The tasting cake was 6-7" diameter and at least 4 inches tall. Amazingly good. We decided on red velvet and graham cracker, with raspberry jam and buttercream filling and chocolate marshmallow filling. They were able to stack the graham cracker and red velvet together so each slice had some of each. There was no extra charge for multiple flavors. We decided on a very simple three-tier square cake with ivory frosting, with silk flowers. I provided the flowers and they arranged them beautifully. It turned out exactly as we hoped it would, and was so delicious. Very happy!

When I started working in Elk Grove Village, I heard whispers about how amazing Jarosch Bakery was.. and that is an understatement! Jarosch is full of amazing employees and even better bakers! We got a sample cake, and they were so accommodating about helping us find flavors that were good - especially since I'm allergic to chocolate. Their banana cake is so good! Also try the Irish Cream filling; it tastes like Baileys. Our cake turned out beautiful.. better than I ever expected. Everyone was raving about the four flavors we chose to have in it. We liked it so much that two weeks later we ordered another small cake just so we can sit back and enjoy it some more =) Highly recommend going here for any cake, bread, cupcakes, cookies or desserts you might need! Jarosch also supplied the cookies for our dessert bar.

We originally found Jarosch based on WeddingWire reviews- neither of us had ever been there before. We made an appointment beforehand and gave them our request for flavors we wanted to try. I’d read so much ahead of time about their graham cracker cake, that I knew we had to try it. Jarosch was our second stop for cake-tasting, and we were blown away. They had made a small cake with all the different layers we’d requested, and everything was absolutely delicious! We ended up going with the graham cracker cake with chocolate buttercream frosting. It was such a unique cake flavor; I’d never had anything like it before, and definitely not at a wedding!

We worked with Tammy, and she was great! She is incredibly nice. We didn’t know much about cake designs or sizes before we went, so she was very patient and explained everything. She also worked with our venue in advance to coordinate the delivery, so we didn’t have to worry about any of the logistics the day of!

We chose a pretty simple design for the cake itself (white with a blue dot design on each tier), but we had an odd special request. We brought them small lego figures (a baker, a painter, etc), and asked them to put the legos on our cake. Our wedding definitely wasn’t “themed,” but we wanted to inject some personality wherever we could. They decorated the cake in a way that was classy and sophisticated, but so fun, and so unique to us! We got so many compliments on the design, and more importantly, the taste! All our guests came up to us asking what flavor it was. So delicious!

Our only regret was that we each only had one piece of it. We live out of state and couldn’t bring any of the cake home with us. Can’t wait for our next trip to Chicago so we can order a small cake and keep it all to ourselves!

We had a great experience with Jarosch, and would highly recommend them for any occasion!

Jarosch was the only bakery available through our wedding venue (the Onion Pub & Brewery), so we didn't have to shop around. We didn't think we'd care that much about the cake (who ever even remembers the cake?), but our.cake.was.amazing. We found 3-4 pictures online that we really liked, and they were able to combine the parts that we wanted from each into our fabulous one-of-a-kind cake. One tier was graham cracker cake with chocolate cream, one layer was marble cake with mocha cream, and our top layer that we took home was graham cracker with mocha. Everyone said we had the best wedding cake they'd ever had.

Jarosch Bakery definitely defies the old adage that wedding cake it dry and tasteless. This bakery has been around for 40 years and does amazing wedding cakes. Not only was my cake stunning in appearance, but it tasted absolutely incredible.

We had alternating tiers of red velvet and graham cracker, both of which guests raved about. Since the wedding, I've had many people ask where I got my wedding cake, both because they were impressed by it's breathtaking appearance and it's delectable goodness.

We ordered our wedding cake from Jarosch - so tasty! We got many compliments from our guests about the unique flavor. We decided on the graham cracker cake with chocolate marshmallow filling - like a s'more cake! It was moist and delicious! My mother has been going to this bakery since she was small, and now I know why. It was a GREAT value (we expected to pay way more than what we did). They have started doing wedding cake tasting days, which I highly recommend. You can taste any of their cakes/fillings. Our appointment to order went smoothly, and they made an entire cake round for us to taste and take home. Delish!
