We worked with Ashley and the Luscious Layers team for our wedding. She was responsive, easy to work with and the pricing was competitive. The cake turned out exactly how we wanted it and was delicious - I certainly made sure to have seconds! There were plenty of options and yummy combinations to choose from during the tasting - we ended up going with a strawberry moose and cream cheese frosting that were light and sweet. We had heard nothing but good things about the bakery and have to agree that it's all true. I would highly recommend Luscious Layers to other Chicago area residents!

The cake was perfect! I needed a very small wedding cake because we only had 13 guests, and most bakeries in Chicago wouldn't have anything to do with me because I had such a small order. This bakery was amazing. They were courteous and professional and combined all the pictures of cakes I loved into the perfect cake for me. They drew a picture for me so I knew exactly what I'd be getting. It was perfect.

The folks at Luscious Layers did a wonderful job with our wedding cake. We came in with unique requests for a steampunk cake, and they made it a reality. I was also incredibly impressed with their flexibility in meeting and planning over email, as we were planning from out of state. Thank you Luscious Layers!

Our wedding cake was awesome! We had Luscious Layers create a simple cake with an ombre effect, and they did our cake topper as well. We served the cake at our reception with vanilla gelato, and not a bite was left on the table - which I know because we had a small, 19 person reception. Even the guests that couldn't eat the cake there but took it home made sure to let us know how much they enjoyed it. We had pistachio cake with pistachio cream filling, and butter cream icing. It looked great and tasted even better! My husband and I enjoyed the left overs in the days after the wedding - not a crumb wasted. We will definitely be going back to Luscious Layers for our special occasion cakes.

Luscious Layers Bakery was the best choice for our October 2013 wedding! They made both our wedding cake and our grooms cake. The big difference between this bakery and others, is Ashley doesn't nickel and dime you for different types of cake or frosting, they all COST the same. There's one flat rate, you just choose the one you like best.

I have to rant and rave about our groom's cake as it was the most realistic looking cigar box I've ever seen. No one at our wedding believed it was actually a cake! Even the cigar box labels were exactly as the sample box we provided! Not only did the cake look great, but it tasted great!

I would definitely recommend Luscious Layers to anyone looking for wedding cakes or just a local bakery!

It was a month before my wedding and I realized - I needed dessert! (My original plan was to go pick up a bunch of costco cakes and pies the week of, but I was soon discovering that there was just not enough time). Luscious Layers to the rescue! I called them to inquire about gluten free cupcakes (oh yeah, and I'm gluten intolerant, just to add one more challenge), and they set up a tasting right away. They said they could make the timeline if we didn't need any special stuff (fancy wrappers, fondant etc - which we didn't want in the first place). We met with Ashley, who was just lovely, and devoured some of the most delicious cupcakes we'd ever had - I still dream of the chocolate one filled with marshmallow fluff. They created cupcakes and an adorable cake topper for us to cut. We had guests raving about the dessert - and they were stunned to discover that half of them were gluten free. Oh, and on top of that - the GF options were the same price as the others. It's the first time I wasn't gouged by a company for being a celiac. The hubby and I are planning a return trip to the bakery so we can order a round of our wedding cupcakes again.

If you know me, you know that I have a slight obsession with cupcakes, so I knew from the beginning that I wanted to go that route instead of a traditional cake for my wedding. There are so many wonderful bakeries in the Chicagoland area but we knew we had found a winner with Luscious Layers because it was everything we were looking for - a variety of amazing (and unique) flavors, a fun staff and a tasting that was out of this world. During our tasting, we sat down with Ashley to discuss the flavors and overall look for the cupcakes, plus how we wanted them presented - A few weeks later, Ashley sent me a PDF that had a detailed rendering of what the real presentation would look like so that was a really cool feature. There are so many things that you can customize and they give you full control so you can really get the end result you are looking for.

It's a few weeks after my wedding and people are STILL raving about the cupcakes - everyone thought it was a really different idea and there were so many different ones to try. But let's be honest - is there anything better than banana nutella?

Thank you Luscious Layers for such a wonderful experience!!

Wedding cake is usually not that tasty, but ours was not only gorgeous but they tasted so good someone ended up stealing our grooms cake at the end of the night!! LOL we laugh at it now but we were quite sad we didn't get to have more than the one piece we cut because it was so good!! Ashley was so great to work with from the beginning when we went in for the tasting. She helped us come to a decision on the main cake and grooms cake, and worked with us throughout the process to create our vision. They are so talented, what can I say...I can't wait for our next party so we can get the cake from them!! :)

We would recommend their services to anyone looking for delicious baked good, great customer service, and even affordable prices. This is the trifecta of bakeries!

My husband and I had our fun wedding party a year after we eloped. We did a lot of non-traditional things, so we didn't want a formal wedding cake. We worked with Luscious Layers to come up with a fun idea of a variety of mini cupcakes at our wedding. The flavors were so awesome and because they were mini, everyone got to try a few flavors! Everyone loved them, and the payment and delivery was stress-free! I didn't have to worry about a thing on the big day. We shopped around and found the pricing very affordable. When we went in for a tasting, we got the same treatment as someone buying a full wedding cake, which was so nice. I saw the full wedding cakes when I was there and they were beautiful! Some were fancy, some were simple and sleek and some were fun and whimsical. It seems like they can do a lot there.

Our wedding cake was absolutely delicious! We had a beautiful 3-tiered cake from Luscious Layers decorated with silver ribbon and fresh flowers. The layers alternated between red velvet and strawberries & champagne cake. Our guests still talk about how good it was! The bakery was very helpful and accommodating. I couldn't have asked for anything better!

Luscious Layers did an amazing job on my cake! It was 1 simple planning session/tasting, that was $25 but went towards the total of the cake. Then a few quick emails for reviewing designs and that was it. When I saw my cake the say of the wedding, I was thrilled. Every loved how beautiful and simple it was and yet how it went with my theme perfectly. I had the champagne cake with fresh strawberries and then also butter cake with hazelnut and everyone loved it. It was delicious and nothing was too dry and the cream cheese frosting was amazing! It was even outside in 95 degree heat and still stayed as lovely as fondant!

We hired LL for our wedding cupcakes, and boy, were they amazing! We are pretty picky when it comes to icing, so were happy when we found LL who whipped up light, fluffy, mousse-like icings! They were delivered on-time to our reception venue and looked perfect! They even made us a "jumbo" cupcake for the top tier to cut. As for price - best in the city!! What a great deal for absolutely amazing desserts!

Luscious Layers Bakery offered good variety of cupcake selections including their many combinations of cake favor, filling and icing. I chose to go with 3 different cake flavorings and two different sizes of cupakes.

When it came to the design/presentation of my cupcake display for the wedding, the artist's renderings based on my input was wonderful. It was truly a custom design that fit perfectly with the urban contemporary feel of my wedding.

The staff and management was great to work with, timely and always helpful. The guest loved the cupcakes and our ceremonial cake was love!!!

By far one of our favorite vendors for the wedding. Luscious Layers is not only professional and highly responsive, they are also very creative and flexbile. We had 5 different flavors of mini cupcakes, along with a small three tier-ed cake comprised of two additional flavors. They customized the flavors of cupcakes to meet our visual AND taste preferences. Everyone RAVED about how awesome and delicious ALL the flavors were at the wedding. I'm not a huge icing fan. They were even accomodating enough to put amount less icing on the mini cupcakes as well. Another AWESOME note about LL.... About three weeks before the wedding, I emailed them about a Groom's cake for the Rehersal Dinner. Again...super accomadating and creative. Would NOT hesitate to recommend Luscious Layers for ANY cake/cupcake/bakery need!! Truly a wonderful business. :) :)

From the beautiful designs to the multitude of flavors, Luscious Layers cakes are to die for. I went in for my tasting and fell in love with everything they offered. Too bad I didn't have 10 layers in my cake! One feature that really stands out from other bakeries is they provide you with illustrations of what your cake will look like. And I'm glad they did, since it made me realize I wanted my cake to be a shade of lavender instead of white. They really paid attention to what I wanted and I was blown away when I saw my cake. Besides the cake, they made my dessert table and I believe that was the hit of the night. They thoughtfully left me a little box of treats for after the wedding. And good thing they did, because when I finally had time to visit the desserts, everything was gone! They made frosted shape cookies, chocolate covered marshmallows, truffles, macarons, cake pops, popcorn, chocolate drizzled rice krispie square...just to name a few. :) I HIGHLY recommend them!

Luscious Layers was very friendly and made it easy to communicate our wedding cake needs. My groom and I were seeking to do a small "bride and groom" cake on top of three tiers of various cupcakes. Ashley was quick to respond to all my inquiries, and she was helpful in providing a simple yet elegant style cake. She was very enthusiastic about helping with the big task of our wedding favors [we chose to do cupcakes as opposed to "just married" magnets, sorry but too cliche), and even included in the contract that she would tie a nice ribbon on each box to match our wedding colors, corresponding to the flavor of the cupcake inside (we had 3 different flavors). We provided the boxes and she and her team would do the assembling (including a menu of the flavors and their corresponding ribbon colors). I was disappointed when on the day of the wedding, there was no menu to be found, and the cupcakes were not as moist and tasty as we had remembered from the cake tasting a couple months before the wedding (and our guests also mentioned it could have been better). Although the display looked nice and our top tier turned out [and tasted great] as expected, I just wish they would have provided the menu, and my guests could have enjoyed their cake as much as the groom and I enjoyed ours.

I was disappointed when on the day of the wedding, there was no menu to be found, and the cupcakes were not as moist and tasty as we had remembered from the cake tasting a couple months before the wedding (and our guests also mentioned it could have been better). Although the display looked nice and our top tier turned out [and tasted great] as expected, I just wish they would have provided the menu, and my guests could have enjoyed their cake as much as the groom and I enjoyed ours.

Before the new husband and I realized how trendy wedding cupcakes were, we settled on the idea of having them simply because we couldn't agree on a cake flavor. Alas, we also didn't realize how pricey the cupcake scene could be... enter Luscious Layers to the rescue! Super-creative flavors, adorable designs, and all for the best price you can find in Chicago! Guests raved about the different flavors (the french toast was a huge hit) and Ashley made the planning process fun and easy. Although our top tier cake was a little dry, the leftover cupcakes we took home stayed moist for the next few days, so it seems like that issue was just with our cake. Many thanks to Luscious Layers for helping us have yummy cupcakes that didn't break the bank!

Everything was amazing!!!! Not only did it taste out of this world it looked amazing too! Not only did luscious layers do our wedding cake, they did a dessert table and cupcakes for the rehearsal dinner. They even delivered them to the suburbs. They have the most unique flavor cakes that taste so amazing! We had so many compliments on how good the cake was. I would defiantly recommend luscious layers to any bride!

Practically perfect in every way! This husband and wife team provided us with an affordable and creative solution to getting cupcakes to our 150 guests. Ashley could not have made the process any easier for us, providing suggestions, mock-ups, and adjustments all along the way. Her feedback and ideas made this a painless (and delicious) process. They set up their own displays and make sure your cake is exactly how YOU want it to be. They worked directly with our reception venue so I didn't have to worry about making sure things "got done". I just walked into our reception and was presented with a gorgeous display of cake and cupcakes! I can't wait to use them again - I just need an excuse for a big, beautiful cake!

Cupcakes were fabulous. They were very creative in helping us design our cupcakes and small upper tier cake. Other places laughed at our ideas- they helped make our vision a reality! Even better than expected. They had lots of different flavors and made this process fun.

Ashley at Luscious Layers was probably one of our favorite vendors we worked with. Not only was she fun and creative, her cakes (and pricing!) were amazing. We found out about Luscious Layers from a friend who used them to make their super cool Mario Brothers themed wedding cake. We were looking for a more original cake, not just a classic flowery design. We met with several bakeries and while many were wonderful, they either didn't get our vision for the cake or there was a huge extra cost for doing a more creative cake. (Note: Our cake design wasn't all that creative, we just wanted it Chicago themed with the skyline and stuff on it.)

Not only did Ashley think our idea for the cake was great, she came up with even better ideas for it than we could of even imagined including LED lights on the top layer that were like stars! The cake looked drop dead and the process of working with them to create it was collaborative and a lot of fun. They even did a whole design of the cake on the computer for us to approve before we moved forward with everything, so we really knew what we would be getting. In addition, each layer could be different flavors, and wow were they delicious. We received so many compliments on the cake not to mention all the people that wanted to take pictures next to the cake. I can't imagine anyone else that could have made a cake like they did, and it couldn't have been more perfect.
