Bait & Switch is what I would call it! The tasting was delicious but the actual Wedding cake was awful. My family preferred my Mother's Publix birthday cake over Let them eat cake!! It tasted like it was baked and icing a week before the wedding. And to top it off, it started to fall apart 1/3 of the way thru the wedding reception. If we had been doing the traditional "cut the cake" we would have had to stand in front of the falling cake! When I called Michael to express my dissatisfaction, all he did was argue with me and expect photos as proof of the falling cake. I guess witnesses are not enough and more or less called me a liar. I do not lie! I expect a place of business to deliver the promised product and stand behind it if things go wrong. Take my advice and steer clear of this vendor, I wish I had.

Love, love Chef Michael and staff. Our Wedding was made even more memorable with Chef Michael's beautiful artistry in cake building. From beginning to the end it was an overall fun and personable experience. When we walked into the event room we were so amazed how beautiful the cake had turned out. Thank-you for delivering all that we had hoped and expected for our special New Year's Eve wedding. The best of the best to you Chef Michael and wonderful staff.
Thank-You

Let me start off my wedding was dec 21 2014. I went to let them eat cake with a specific purpose request an I was told of course.he did the drawing was beautiful.so of course we called him the week before he said everything was a go.I trusted this man the cake was the most important to me.an came my wedding day right before I walked down the aisle.I had to go see my cake I was do excited for. An to my shock it was horrible I cried mins before I had to walk down it was nothing we had discussed.it looked like Wal-Mart could have done it. It didn't even have things we asked for. And there was nothing I could do it was going to be apart of my wedding forever. So when it came time to at least eat it I hoped it would be great at least.I was wrong again it was freezer burned. A good portion of my guest took one bite an refused to eat anymore.I could not do anything but apologize for putting my trust in someone. So that Monday came an my husband called an complained to him.and he said send me a pic of the cake like he couldn't remember the cake he just did.so we did now its 2 weeks later an heard nothing we tryed calling again an we were told he would calls us back.I would never recommended them to anyone.

Chef Michael did the cake for my wedding and from the moment I called his bakery until a few hours before the cake was delivered, he was awesome! The only reason I gave 4/5 on professionalism is because he is not "professional" in the traditional sense of the term, rather, made me feel like a friend from day one! personally, i prefer this, but I don't want to confuse ppl who prefer to work with someone professional in the traditional sense of the word! A lot of bakeries we tried were really busy and they made sure you knew it/you could tell, and a lot of times, with wedding cake, what you taste at the tasting is far better than what the cake actually tastes like on the day of your wedding. THAT WAS NOT AT ALL THE CASE WITH Let Them Eat Cake. Michael treats you like you are his favorite customer and you can tell that he really enjoys what he does and that he and his staff have a good time (always up beat, positive and friendly, not just Michael, but the whole staff!) AND they do good work and deliver on their promises. Michael made the exact cake from my drawing and it was just as good at my wedding as it was at the tasting. If I had it to do over again, i would have ordered more cake, it was that good! (as it was, my guests asked for more, even after some had as many as 3 slices!) Thank you again Chef Michael and your wonderful staff!

Our tasting with Chef Michael was so fun and all of the cakes were delicious! He was so accomodating to me, my fiance, and my family. We had 3 bakeries to choose from for our wedding at the Sandpearl Resort. We had one cake design in mind that we absolutely loved, and he was able to make this cake for us. The cake was absolutely beautiful and tasted so good. We received so many compliments on our cake. It was stunning...thank you Chef Michael!

Chef Michael is a true artist. My wedding cake was more than I expected it to be. I choose four different favors and every single one was moist and delicious. My guests were all impressed by how beautiful and delicious it was. Most of them requested second and third servings. We didn't have any cake left. We also had him make an assortment of miniature desserts for our Viennese table. Our guests love every single one and that was consumed completely too. Now I don't want you to think that they were hungry. We served lots of food before we cut the cake. It is that indeed, his cakes are DELICIOUS!!

Thank you Chef Michael!

Let Them Eat Cake surpassed our expectations for our grooms cake and wedding day cake. They took into consideration our wishes and included our wedding theme, colors, and details for our wedding cake. People are still complimenting us on how beautiful the wedding cake was. It was exactly what we wanted. Michael and his entire staff was a pleasure to work with. Our tasting was fun and it was difficult to choose from all the delicious flavors. We can't wait to cut the top of the cake for our one year anniversary! I highly recommend them for your cake and dessert needs, for weddings and otherwise.

Chef Michael Baugh and the staff at Let Them Eat Cake were the perfect people for the unique wedding cake we wanted made. We showed up with a drawing and a concept and his response was "I want to make this cake really bad, I mean I will make it really good!" He delivered on that promise and made us the "iCake" of our dreams complete with a white chocolate iPhone on the top with edible cables that went up from ports on the backside of the cake up into it. He is 100% passionate about what he does and who better to make your wedding cake dreams come true than someone like that? In addition to his creativity and willingness to take on all projects, his cakes taste amazing! Do a tasting with him, it will be a moment you will never forget. I am so grateful that we found him and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding cake baker or any kind of cake for that matter. (We also had him make a birthday cake for my Father In Law for the day after our wedding and it was equally fun and absolutely delicious!) Thank you Chef Michael, you are fabulous!

I don't usually give bad reviews and this place isn't awful but I am so glad we chose not to go with them. I am sure they produce beautiful and delicious cakes and more than likely we just had a bad experience but I still wanted to share a few things that I think are important.

After speaking with the owner who has a fantastic personality by the way...we scheduled an appointment for a tasting. When we spoke on the phone he asked me to bring him pictures of my wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, colors etc. Unfortunately he didn't look at any of it and stated at the end of the tasting that next time we meet I want to see pictures of your dress, and your bridesmaid dresses, etc. "I wanna see it all honey, you show me yours I'll show you mine". Again, he had a very fun personality but I was so disappointed that he never even looked at my photos that I took the time to present.

As for the tasting...Yikes! Since they have such a high rating I'm sure we just had a bad experience but all of the cake was so dry. I mean REALLY dry! I was so shocked. I just feel like if you're going to put a quality price on your products then you should bring out your best samples. I don't know if they were left uncovered in the refrigeration unit or it they weren't baked fresh but the samples were hard to choke down. The icing flavors were good and there was a variety but the cake was just nasty.

Chef Michael is super sweet and easy to work with. His design is EXACTLY what I wanted. His taste testing was amazing but was not as pleased with the taste of my actual wedding cake. A friend of mine used him as well and his design was spot on but her cake tasted a day or two old.

My fiance and I went to Let them Eat Cake for a cake tasting with Chef Michael. Michael made it a very fun experience for us and we loved the different filling options that were available. The cake was a bit dry at the tasting but I assumed that was because it had been out. We were interested in his Lemon Citron Vodka cake for one of the tiers on our wedding cake. He didn't have the vodka soaked cake available at tastings. He suggested we order the cake for Thanksgiving to try it out. We picked it up and were so disappointed. The cake was incredibly dry and we didn't see how it had been soaked in vodka. It was truly awful. We had one piece and through it out.

We thought this might have just been a one-off bad cake because the store was so busy. We were still interested in getting our wedding cake from him. My fiance called him and told him about our experience with the cake. His response was he didn't feel like dealing with us and he tore up our order. I would not use this bakery again. He is not a professional!
