Chef Michael was so much fun! He made the cake tasting the best experience of planning my wedding. With non stop traffic - you know it's the place to go for your specialty cakes. And he offers you a fresh new cake on your 1 year anniversary. Service with a smile :o)
5 Stars!!
Get ready to wait - they're super busy (which is good!)

Chef Michael is fun and the atmosphere at Let Them Eat Cake is too! A south Tampa staple for any bride. His flavors are delicious and when let him be creative his work really shines. He made the cake for my bridal shower and my wedding, and honestly a month later people are STILL talking to me about how delicious it is! Our cake(s) were beautiful to look at and to eat, and that's tough to say about a LOT of wedding cakes.
Can't wait to use them again! Thank you!

The experience at Let Them Eat Cake is not to be missed for brides in Tampa. From the cake tasting to finalizing details Chef Michael was funny, creative, he listened, and delivered our perfect wedding cake. We had two different flavors, Boston cream and jour de nuit (choco and vanilla) and our guests raved about our cake. At our first meeting we had a wonderful tasting. We felt Chef was a little distracted but the bakery is always busy (with repeat customers!) which was a great sign. When we discussed the design I presented ideas we had agreed upon prior and Chef was happy to accommodate and made suggestions as well! Our cake came out PERFECT, thank you Let Them Eat Cake!!

Chef Michael was unbelievable to work with. He wanted to make sure we got exactly what we wanted and that our experience was one if a kind. He was exactly what we wanted in a cake vendor. The cake was absolutely delicious and it looked beautiful. It was personalized to our style, color, and theme. It was absolutely gorgeous.

Our wedding cake from Let them eat cake was so gorgeous! It looked just like I specified, with wonderful attention to detail. I loved how when you come in for the tasting chef Michael makes little bites of each flavor for each taste and helps you narrow down your selection. Choosing the flavor was the hardest part since all of his creations are delicious! Chef Michael even said he would make us a new top tier for our anniversary so we didn’t have to keep it in the freezer for a year. For inspiration we showed them our save the dates, which had scrabble letters on the beach. Chef Michael used natural sugar to make a sandy beach under our cake with little chocolate scrabble letters spelling our names and white chocolate shells. It was amazing, I have already recommended “Let them eat cake” to any bride I meet.

Our cake turned out beautifully and was delicious at the same time. My only complaint is that it could have been larger. Chef Michael was so nice to work with. We did a 3 layer cake, each layer a different flavor - red velvet, carrot cake and guava. Great cake and great prices!

I have had the pleasure of working with Chef Michael for several corporate events. His cakes always win awards for our industry and his professional staff and whimsical approach is a delight.

Of course selecting him for our wedding cake was a no brainer.

The cake was beautiful - naturally! Chef Michael only lets the very best walk out of his bakery and our cake was no exception. From the three different flavors (one for each tier) to the handmade cake topper that matched our theme - everything was exquisite. There are a lot of things you worry about while planning a wedding - a cake shouldn't be one of them. Do yourself a favor, go have a tasting with Chef Michael, fall in love with his charm and his wonderful spirit, and know - your cake is gonna be beautiful and delicious. Easy! One less thing to worry about!

Very pleased! Our son accompanied us to the cake tasting. Chef Michael came up with the idea to put his name in small letters on the back of the cake to include him. Our son was very excited about that! We thought that was such a fun and thoughtful gesture (and a good photo op!). The cake was BEAUTIFUL and delicious. He took a photo I gave him as a guideline and created an even more beautiful cake.

The entire staff treated us like a member of their family, they even gave us lunch!

The cake was an element that I really wanted to stand out at the wedding. I was very particular about the design of this cake and even paid an extra fee to get the design I chose. In the end the cake dissapointed me. It was not the design I specifically showed pictures of but rather a copy of one he did before. It really let me down

The cake was absolutely delicious and Chef Michael was flexible in that he allowed for a different flavor in each layer for variety. The cake was decorated more like a party cake than what I anticipated. The color was wrong as it was supposed to be gold colored accents, but when my cake came it was chocolate. Lastly, it was proabably the best tasting fondant I've had.

I had a snafu with my original baker and literally a week before the wedding had to find another chef! When I called Chef Michael I was nervous it would be to late. From the moment I spoke to him he was friendly, and helpful and encouraging. He assured me it would all be fine and fit me in the next day for a tasting. In the end the cake turned out better than the original and I even purchased a grooms cake as well! It really was a great experience when it could have been very stressful!

My mother in law and I spent a good portion of time visiting Chef Micheal and going over the cakes and flavors with him. He seemed to be a prfessional and talented chef with all the creative works in the doing. We liked a pillow cake that was out in display and ordered the same cake with very little modifications.
The theme of our wedding was pink, gold and purple. Hence I asked chef Michael to make the top and the bottom layer to be HOt pink with silver and white designs (lacy design on the edges), and the center layer to be white with gold, purple and pink color designs. To make it 100% certain i showed him the picture of a similar cake with the eaxt colors, and chef michael reassured that it wouldnt be an issue. How difficult is it for a chef to execute. The flavor we selected were blackforest for the bottom layer and raspberry cheesecake for other two layers.
I arrived at the banquet hall friday night, right before the reception were to start, and found an organge and white cake (bottom layer was orange and top two layers of white), with random blue and gold design on them. I was startled and didnt know how to present it to my fiance. It looked totally out of place. Ofcourse, i did not want this to mess up our Big Day, but it was just not acceptable, and my wife wasnt happy about it either. As far as the taste went, the black forest was good but the other two layers were not even close to the raspberry cheesecake that the chef had us try.

This business needs to understand the seriousness and the importance of the orders they recieve from couple who spend a fortune and time to plan their big day, and such mistakes are just not acceptable. Chef Michael apparently left for out of state, right after our wedding and no one from their business has returned my calls as of yet.

We have 5 more weddings coming up in the next two years and would not recommend this place to anyone.

I am a HUGE cake eater and baker, so when my husband and I were choosing our wedding cake it was an important decision for both of us. We had our wedding at the Safety Harbor Spa and within the package you receive from the spa is a cake from Chef Michael from Let Them Eat Cake. I was so excited to work with Chef Michael and even more excited as we left our cake tasting. As soon as we entered Chef Michael’s bakery I saw the cake that I wanted, and I made it VERY clear to him that it was the exact cake from colors to the style. So he asked me to take a picture on my phone (which we did). Chief Michael took the time with us to at the cake tasting and he drew out the cake shape and the flavors and gave us a draft of our cake. I had made it very clear that I wanted the bottom layer to be my total favorite which was to be all chocolate, the middle layer to be red velvet and the top layer to be white cake with raspberry filling. Two weeks before the wedding Chef Michael called and we reviewed the cake. A week before the wedding I texted him the EXACT picture of the cake I wanted. And oh boy how we were surprised on our wedding day to see that the cake was NOT by no means what we wanted or ordered. And the surprises kept coming because as we cut into the cake I realized that the bottom layer was not completely chocolate, it was marble, the middle layer was what we asked, but the top layer was white cake and strawberries… Humm… what more can I say then that I was very disappointed that the one thing I was so into during my wedding turned out nothing like I wanted. My advice to future brides who deal with the Safety Harbor Spa is to bring in your own cake, so you aren’t disappointed. I didn’t let this ruin my day but it was a disappointment.

Chef Michael Baugh has the uncanny ability of making the task of deciding on a wedding cake effortless and fun, not to mention divinely delicious! As he inquires about your event in a 'chit-chat' friendly fashion, his hands are masterfully creating a picturesque view of what will become your beautiful 'edible piece of art'. His creative combinations of mouthwatering cake flavors and fillings leave you anticipating that special moment when you take your first bite. When I walked into the ballroom and saw my magnificent 5 tier 'edible piece of art' with all it's elaborate details, I immediately realized that Chef Michael's design had surpassed all my expectations, to the point that there was NO CAKE left after the reception!! Chef Michael - 5 star in my smartphone!

Wonderful! The tasting was YUMM! And we got to see the team in action! Though it was a little difficult to get the Chef's attention for more than 2 minutes (they are a very busy place) everything turned out AWESOME. For them, my cake was nothing...it was very basic. Which was all the better for me because by looking at some of their awesome creations, I knew mine would be a walk in the park. It looked and tasted FANTASTIC!! I got so many compliments on how great it looked/tasted. They can do it all there!!! Thank you Chef!

I got so many compliments on how great it looked/tasted. They can do it all there!!! Thank you Chef! Read less

Gayle from Let Them Eat Cake is a very talented artist and baker, she will create a custom cake for your special day that will knock your socks off....and is totally delicious.
Our cake was whimsical with a lobster bride and groom as the cake topper and she even made replicas of our two Bullmastiffs to sit at the bottom of the cake as a personal touch.
My husband and I are from Chicago but were married in Portland, ME. Let them Eat Cake is perfect for planning from afar. The cake samples were mailed to my house; we tasted, decided and then had a conference call with Gayle in front of the computer where she was able to show us different elements of the cake design, it was a fun process and the results were incredible!
I highly recommend Let Them Eat Cake.

They were very nice and funny, especially Chef Michael at our cake tasting. The cake we got was exactly what we had ordered and it tasted very good. We also like the fact that they will give us a one year anniversary cake so we don't have to freeze the top layer, we get a new, fresh cake instead. Overall, we were satisfied with everything we got from our cake vendor.

Chef Mike was amazing to work with. I was having a difficult time finding a baker that not only got my vision but was able to make it happen within my budget. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted but I wanted some artistic contribution from the baker too. Chef Mike listened to me and what I wanted but also took my idea to another level and made it so much better. The staff is amazing and it is such a fun environment!! The cake was delicious and beautiful too! We also used them for my bridal shower cake which came out amazing as well...we will definitely be using them for future cakes :)

Our cake was not the correct color. I brought in a ripped out magazine page of a cake that I liked and asked Michael to design the cake to replicate the sample I brought in but to change the colors. I provided them with my colors and didn't think to double check with Michael on the design or the colors, I just trusted it would turn out as we had discussed. Well, I received the cake on time and at the correct venue but the cake looked exactly like the magazine sample, colors and all. My colors were pale tones such as peaches, pale yellow, pale oranges. The cake was bright blue. I was extremely disappointed. It made me feel like Michael didnt take special note to my instructions and didn't listen to me at all.

Chef Micheal is an artist...and makes the most beautiful cakes...not only to look a but to eat also!
The experince begins with the cake testing. I didn't think we needed to do this because I knew what cake I liked...how wrong was I!!!!!
Chef Michael makes the most amazing flavors you can possibly imagine. We had a three tier cake, with three different flavors; Banana Fosters, Raspberry Cheesecake and Day and Night.
I couldn't pick a favorite...they were all simply amazing! Our guests were in love with the cake and so were we!

I was told about Tanis by a friend who said her cakes/cupcakes were DELICIOUS. She was right!!! My wedding cake was very simple, yet rustic and Tanis nailed it! I showed her a picture of what I wanted and got an exact replica. I met with her at her lovely home and felt super comfortable during our consultation. I was able to pick the flavors I wanted and even take home a few samples of cake! YUM! The day of the wedding she delivered the cake right on time and it was STUNNING! The price she gave us was great, I did not feel ripped off at all, on the contrary, I shopped around town and found her prices to be less than the bakery prices. I would recommend this company to anyone, including close friends and family. You can see pictures of my WEDDING CAKE HERE http://www.nbphotographix.com/2012/05/16/juliejon-married/

I would not recommend Let Them Eat Cake for your wedding cake. They delivered the cake with the WRONG CAKE TOPPER. The venue notified them about it and they did nothing to correct it that evening, nor did they ever even call me afterward to apologize. In addition the cake was not of the quality that we experienced during the tasting. We picked our layers/fillings and they barely used any of the flavored filling and used a bunch of buttercream in the layers. The Red Velvet layer did not have cream cheese frosting ..they used buttercream instead.

We had our rehersal luncheon, ceremony, and reception at the Safety Harbor Resort & Spa. When you book your reception with them and choose to have a wedding cake, you have no choice but to work with Let Them Eat Cake, as they have a contract between the two vendors.
Soooo, we booked our tasting, and that went very well. The staff including Chef Michael were amazing and even accomodated my husband, matron of honor, grooms man, and mom to taste the cake, fillings, and icing options.
After that experience my mother wanted to suprise my husband with a groom's cake for our rehersal luncheon. He is a huge car fan so she asked Chef Michael if he would be able to replicate my husbands show car in cake form. He said yes if we provided him with photos and a matchbox car for him to use as a model. We actually found a model car that we provided him as well as the photos. Needless to say....while the cake was pretty cool...it definately was NOT at $250 cake...we even had to go piclk it up.
So then the wedding reception came...as we thought our cake would be a great statement added to our reception decor, it left much to be desired. It was plain out ugly... :o( the cake topper was placed on the cake in a tacky fashion, we had a uique topper that had numerous components to it, it looked as it no care was put into the placement.
We then went to cut the cake at our reception and actually cut into a 4" by 3" piece of what tasted like sweetened lard...our photographer actually stopped us and asked if we even cut into any actual cake...it was horrible and sad...ruined that once in a lifetime moment for us.
The cake tasted completely different than at the cake tasting...
It almost seems as though Let Them Eat Cake takes advantage of Safety Harbor Resort clients because of the contract held and just do not go all out for them as they do other clients.
:o( Be careful with this one...

Chef Michael and his staff were always so nice when we went into the store. They made our cake beautiful! We had our heart set on "quilting" but didnt want fondant and they made the quilt pattern look great out of buttercream. The bottom tier tasted great, as did the top. The middle layer left a little to be desired, but the cake overall was gorgeous. The color was spot on and the sugar cake topper, and everything was exactly what we wanted. Thank you Chef Michael!

Chef Michael was great! Every time I called him he would answer and made me feel like I was the only one on his priority list. The food tasting was great, and the design meeting went smoothly.

I gave Chef Michael elements of our wedding and informed him I didn't really have a vision of our cake. He told me not to worry, and so I didn't. He said he could create me what I was looking for and that matched our wedding.

We should up to the reception and LOVED the cake. Elegant and flowed with the theme very nicely. He made the experience very stress free!

Working with Chef Mike was absolutely Great! He was very professional, friendly, and always had a smile on his face when going to visit in person. Every time I went to the bakery he knew me by name which was very personable for me and customer service like that is hard to find. All the different flavors we used were good along with the frosting - so good there was no cake left to take home. The great thing about it all is the cake turned out exactly how I visioned it would. Delivery was on time. We called a year after the wedding for our free Anniversary cake and it was just as good as our Wedding Cake. I highly recommend Chef Mike for any event you have that needs a cake!

It was the boston cream cake which was one of my favorite tastings. Our wedding cake was awesome. It was a 2 tier cake with sea coral and intricate designs. The bottom tier was the Key Lime and the top tier was Black Forrest. They did an excellent job and we can't wait until our anniversary cake next year.

Love, love, love Chef Michael and his crew. They made a groom's cake (at the rehearsal dinner by my choice) and our wedding cake. The groom's cake was originally a mustang car because the hubby was there with me picking out the flavors. About two weeks prior, I changed it to an English Bulldog, which is what Mike REALLY wanted. It could not have turned out more perfect. Our wedding cake was a non-traditional blue color with a modern and elegant design. Chef Michael really is a visionary, and his personality is so adorable. And our wedding party couldn't comment enough on how great the cakes were. We'll be going back for years to come.

The groom's cake was originally a mustang car because the hubby was there with me picking out the flavors. About two weeks prior, I changed it to an English Bulldog, which is what Mike REALLY wanted. It could not have turned out more perfect. Our wedding cake was a non-traditional blue color with a modern and elegant design. Chef Michael really is a visionary, and his personality is so adorable. And our wedding party couldn't comment enough on how great the cakes were. We'll be going back for years to come. Read less

I wish I could give a better review. Everyone at Let Them Eat Cake was very friendly and the tasting we had absolutely made our decision. My husband and I had a fantastic tasting that blew us away. The taste of the cake was oustanding and after getting several recommendations and seeing Chef Michael's work we were very excited to work with Let the Eat Cake.

I had 2 meetings with Chef Michael to create a sketch and provide pictures of the cake that I wanted. I felt very confident after our meetings but unfortunately the cake we had on our wedding day fell well below our expectations. Our wedding cake was supposed to have a very intricate desgin, but the one we received was very basic and minimal. The cake tasted great, but the design was missing several elements from the sketch and failed to include the details we discussed and that were included on the pictures I provided.

I brought all of this to Chef Michael's attention and he was incredibly apologetic for missing the mark on my cake and has offered to make it up to us in product. While I appreciated the apologies and hate giving a negative review, the only disappointing part of our wedding was the cake. The only reason I was given for the mistake was that they take on so many cakes and it is rare that they miss the mark. My advice to brides is to ask how many cakes a bakery takes on for their day.

Chef Michael & his team are amazing! They helped to design an truly unique cake that looked gorgeous and tasted spectacular! We even had to change the design about 2 months out from the wedding since we went to a wedding that had our same exact cake, and the couple who got married, would be at our wedding. So, we rushed in to LTEC and Chef Michael designed an even better cake and made it into a masterpiece. I would recommend LTEC and Chef Michael to anyone who wants an amazing cake that you just can't eat enough of! :)

Our cake was exactly what we imagined. A cake that was big and beautiful. The only thing is when we went in and sat with our second and final appointment, Chef Michael wasn't there :(.. which we knew because he kindly let us know weeks in advance. But the part that upset us was my fiancee was set on the airbrush antique textered frosting, and chef said it could be done. But when the final appointment came the designer said our choice of frosting wouldn't mix with the airbrush. They cake still turned out more then amazing but we just feel she wans't as flexible as chef michael. But all in all this bakery is an A.. we are still going to go there for every occasion. thanks great job!

We went to a tasting at Let Them Eat Cake and fell in love, we decided from now on, if we ever need a cake, we are going to Chef Michael. Walking into his shop is like watching Ace of Cake, but better! He has many unique flavors and we chose to have three different flavors in our cake. His prices are incredibly reasonable for what he gives you. He even made me a last-minute surprise groom's cake for our rehearsal dinner. I love Chef Michael and would definitely recommend him to other brides.

For my wedding day, Let Them Eat Cake provided exceptional service from initial consultation to my wedding day. I heard of Let Them Eat Cake through my friends, and they all told me it was an amazing place. When I finally went to Let Them Eat Cake it was a delight. The cake was simply stunning. May was so enthusiastic and made me feel very special. Let Them Eat Cake worked on an excellent design in the end it had loads of creative ideas which ensured that I got the cake of my dreams. It was a real head-turner upper for my wedding.
Delivery and set-up was another problem solved. Attention to detail was impeccable "Thank you for the fresh flowers, they were beautiful". The cake tasted delicious (This was commented on by guests many times) "what is your secret"?
I couldn't recommend Let Them Eat Cake more!

During my planning, the one detail I wasn't too concerned about was the cake. I told my mom that she could pick out the cake; I didn't care. We went to the tasting with Chef Michael and the cake immediately became much more important. Chef Michael and his team made the most beautiful cake that matched my theme perfectly. I went from not caring about my cake to being head over heels about my cake. Chef Michael was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to anyone.

I spoke with the Chef and he told me that although his staff made the mistake, he did not care about repeat customers. Great business strategy.

Top Notch! Highly recommended! My mother is a cake decorator and was going to make the cake. Less than a month before the wedding she ended up needing surgery and was not sure what her recovery time was going to be. Freaking out my husband and I set up several appointments with cake decorators. We went to all of them and were not really satisfied. Driving home we decided we would just stop in to Let Them Eat Cake and set up an appointment. Right away going in there Chef Michael started giving us wonderful, creative ideas for a cake. He truly is an artist. We knew immediately this was who we wanted to do the cake. The cake was amazing! I also had a friend that had her cake made by Chef Michael and was very happy!

The cake was gorgeous and delicious but there were issues. First, I wanted fresh flowers in between the tiers so I ordered 100 roses from my florist. I also wanted a chocolate cake topper with our initial. Well the cake guy just delivered the cake. He didn't wait for the florist and there was no cake topper. So luckily my florist stepped up and added the flowers to the cake and made an awesome topper with the roses.

After the wedding, I spoke with Chef Michael and another associate and they gave me a check for $30 which is what they charge for toppers and gave me some cake samples to take home. They were very apologetic, but I was still irritated. Luckily this was the only issue on the wedding day.

What can I say besides yum? How about Amazing! I am not a fan of "wedding cake". I usually pass when attending other people’s weddings so I was not that excited about getting one. However, when I went to the tasting at Let Them Eat Cake on Westshore, I was blown away by what they had to offer. Anything you can think of was on the plate for us to taste. Their key lime cheesecake was to die for and I don't even like cheese cake!

After sampling everything twice, my fiancé and I agreed on the almond flavored cake with butter cream icing and a raspberry ribbon filling. It was three layers, round with a pink fondant ribbon around each layer and sporadic filigree around the entire cake. It was beautiful and better than I could have imagined.

I also got a grooms cake from them. My fiancé is a huge NASCAR fan and his driver is # 29 Kevin Harvick. They were able to make an exact replica of his favorite car out of carrot cake and icing. It was amazing and my fiancé LOVED it.

I have worked with Chef Michael on two occasions now: my engagement party and my sister's wedding. His cakes are exceptional! He is very inventive with both the flavors (white chocolate mouse, almond cakes, cheese cakes, yellow cakes, stawberries, and more) and the look of the cake. The cakes you will purchase from him will look like they are out of a page in a magazine. I am not going to pretend that he is the cheapest cake in town, but when you go to him that is not what you are looking for. You are looking for something that will wow your guests on the visual and taste levels! He will not let you down on this!

When we went to the tasting at Let Them Eat cake we knew right away they would be the ones to make our cake. We had a Boston cream cake and it was delicious. Our wedding was at an aquarium and Michael and his staff made a unique cake covered with sugary fish and seahorses. Though it was difficult to make, I had a vision of our cake topper walking (or dancing) across a bridge and the bottom layers featuring the water with the fish. Michael did an excellent job. Because I am a teacher, we received and educators discount and then Michael's policy is for a free cake on your first anniversary. My husband and I now live in New jersey and Michael was able to package our anniversary cake for travel and my mom was able to bring the cake with her when she visited for Thanksgiving.

Chef Michael was absolutely amazing. From our first tasting to the actual wedding cake was a brides dream. I couldn't have asked for a better vendor. We were able to come into his kitchen and watch him make cakes, he even offered to let me help him make my wedding cake. He was personable and made me feel very comfortable and special every time I went into his store. He did both my wedding cake and the grooms cake and everyone RAVED about the cakes! We even had leftovers and enjoyed those while on our way to the honeymoon!

My cake was delicious and Chef Michael did an excellent job on the cake part. However, I work in the wedding industry and I cannot in my heart ever recommend their services to anybody getting married. My cake arrived two hours into my reception. It was so late that my florist had left and when the guy brought the cake he just left it with three gaping holes on the top where the dowels were kept to transport the cake. I had to ask a bridesmaid to get flowers off of the bar so I could decorate my own cake. And to top it off, they never even APOLOGIZED to me for this.

I should have known better. I had for years heard that Let Them Eat Cake takes on several events a day and has screwed this up for several people. I was just so wowed at the quality of the cake. It was delish.

Such a shame that this is how I now view this business and whenever brides ask me for recommendations I have to say stay away or else :(

My cake was delicious and Chef Michael did an excellent job on the cake part. However, I work in the wedding industry and I cannot in my heart ever recommend their services to anybody getting married. My cake arrived two hours into my reception.

Two years after my wedding, I still think back and absolutely smile at how beautiful my wedding cake was. From the first time we met Michael, working with him was nothing but fun. We sat in his bakery and tested samples and showed me how he would construct the white chocolate roses and then accent them with edible gold paint. To this day, our cake is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen anywhere. Let Them Eat Cake was referred to me by a friend who used them for her wedding and now I am passing this referral along.

**See update at bottom of review**

I hired Chef Michael and his staff at Let Them Eat Cake to create a cake for my 50-person reception (March 2011). Upon initially meeting the friendly staff, seeing the cute location, tasting the yummy cakes, I was very impressed by this vendor—so I chose to disregard the mixed reviews pointing out design issues and give them the benefit of doubt. The cake showed up on time and was truly delicious. Unfortunately though, when it came to the design, I was disappointed.

I had provided photos of my dress lace as well as a detailed illustration of the design, color, etc. I was requesting. Due to the apparent complexity of my design, I was charged an additional $100 art fee. When I went to the store a few weeks before the wedding to pay my balance, I confirmed they had all my reference images.

The change in design was obvious when I saw the cake after delivery. I immediately called the bakery to make sure they hadn’t accidentally delivered the wrong cake. When I asked why the discrepancy, Chef Michael stated that he did not have—nor have knowledge of—the illustration I provided. Not having time to discuss the issue moments before the ceremony, we ended our conversation with him saying he would "make it up to me."

Three weeks after the wedding, I contacted the bakery via email to follow-up on the issue. Since the design I requested and paid an additional fee for was not performed, I requested the $100 art fee be refunded. I thought this was more than fair, given that—though we were provided a delicious and pretty cake for our wedding—we were not provided the design we ordered. Nor was the design delivered complex enough to merit an extra $100 art fee.

Chef Michael agreed to give me the refund I requested (April 2011). However, it has been over a month since that email conversation and I have not heard from them, nor gotten my refund.
---------
Update: It has been over two months since they agreed to give me the refund and I have not heard from them (mid June). I called last week to inquire about this. Chef Michael said he has to look up my information and would call me right back but never did. Obviously once they have your money they don't care any more... I am VERY disappointed with this vendor now. You can be sure I will never use them again, nor will I recommend them to anyone else. Rather the opposite.

From the first meeting with Chef Michael to the end result, all was wonderful. We had our 2 "dates" to discuss design, flavor and overall look of the cake. It was exactly what we expected and was SOOOO good.

Lets get the bad out of the way... I overpaid for my cake- they charged me an $70.00 for frosting flowers that were not on my cake, I was told by the owner that I would receive a refund and never did but... On the flip side of this, the cake looked amazing other than the flower on the top didn't look like it was done very tight. The great part of it was that it was delivered on time, the cake tasted amazing and it was nearly all gone by the end of the night. I just wish that the owner would display a little bit more professionalism when speaking with clients, he will call you from his cell phone and have 5 different conversations with other people while he's talking to you... Other than that, I did like their work, the cake was fabulous...

Chef Michael and his team are very talented bakers. Every since I met chef Michael at a cooking class I knew that when I got married I wanted him to bake my wedding cake. I had a beautifully detailed cake that was delicious and inexpensive! I have recommended him to 3 of my friends and all of them have had him make their wedding cakes.
