Her cakes are INSANELY delicious and I can't recommend them enough! Her shop is a Westside GEM and her prices are very reasonable.

We chose Maribelle Cakery to do our wedding cake and grooms cake for our wedding reception! We worked with Angela and she was awesome! From our first meeting where we met her and did our cake tasting we knew we didn't have to look any further.

She was very helpful and helped us come up with ideas and ways to make our cake more budget friendly. It was so hard to select 3-4 flavors because all the cake was so good and was very moist. We chose Diva, Orange with Strawberry filling, Chocolate, and Lemon as our flavors.

When we saw our cake at our reception we were so pleased with how it turned out. We also received so many compliments on how good the cake tasted! We had a lot of left overs and I was still eating it a week and half later and it was still so moist!

We can't wait to take advantage of their anniversary cake they offer on your one year anniversary! Would highly recommend Maribelle Cakery! You will not be disappointed and you will be talking about how good their cake years after your married! Seriously the best cake we have ever had!

Thanks,
Anthony & Emily

The cakes are delicious, beautiful, and they are very flexible are what flavors you want and how you want it decorated. Angela was so great to work with. We couldn't make a final decision on our last layer flavor so she let us come in again for a second tasting. Sooo worth the price.

The entire staff were a pleasure to work with from our first taste testing (allowing us to reschedule at the last minute due to a family emergency), right up to our wedding day and delivering the cake. Our cake was amazing and everyone enjoyed the variety of flavors. We received our anniversary cake this past weekend and it was superb as well! Thank you everyone!

Top notch! This was the BEST cake we had in the entire city. We loved that we were not limited with only having one flavor and one filling. We were able to have each cake layer something different so our guests could have a variety of choices! They drew a design to match our invitation designs for our cake and it was simply beautiful! We also loved the idea of eating the ENTIRE cake at the wedding and ordering a small topper at our one year anniversary to ensure that we had another great piece of cake instead of what we might pull out of the freezer! Fantastic service all around - she was answering my e-mails at 10 or 11 in the evening from her i-phone! I was also impressed with the quality of the cake and the price of the cake. I was expecting it to be a lot more and it was actually right in budget! Try them out!

I am definitely a cake person and knew going in that our cake had to taste and look fabulous. I was thrilled that we were able to have four different flavors and truly loved every one that we picked. I came in with the color palette of my wedding and ideas of how I wanted my cake to look. Larry was more than eager to work with me on a design, and the results were beautiful. Highly recommended!

OUTSTANDING. Not only was our wedding cake the most delicious, moist, decadent, freshest piece of cake I have ever tasted (even 3 days later when we were still eating leftovers) but it was literally a work of art. I gave Seth a photograph of hand-painted flowers and he was able to replicate it to a T. I was floored by how beautiful it was.

They may be pricer than some of the other bakeries, but I still have guest telling me that it was the best piece of cake they have ever had. In my book-it was worth every penny!

My sister used Maribelle's for her cake and because of that, I knew we wanted them for ours! The cake tastes amazing compared to any other place you will go. It is always moist and their cakes look beautiful! They have tons of examples and ideas and they will go out of their way to make the cake represent you. They also did our cake for our rehearsal dinner which was on our college colors. You can order a cake on your anniversary as well so you don't have to freeze your cake topper! They are really the best place to go because they ONLY do weddings. It's not just a bakery it's a wedding cake specialty shop!

This is the best wedding cake I've ever had! We had 5 layers with 4 different flavors and they were all equally good! The cake was also designed to perfection, as I provided the bakery with a copy of my invitation design and they were able to replicate it perfectly. Kevin Ford from Ford-Ellington also added gorgeous black magic roses to the design. It was stunning and it tasted delicious!

Maribelle Cakery created the perfect cake for our wedding reception. They listened to our vision and made it come to life. We had four layers that incorporated their delicious flavors and some of our own ideas to suite our personal taste. The design was beautiful and very professional looking. All the staff members we encountered were easy to work with and flexible to suite our needs.

We loved our wedding cake and the desserts that were made by Maribelle's for our wedding. It took some time to set up a meeting and get on the same page with our ideas, but the overall result was great. Very good treats for any event or time of year.

They were absolutely wonderful. When we first met wtih them to pick out the cake, they made the decision making easy. We went slowly- step-by-step- as to not be overwhelmed. We decided to place live fllowers on the cake and they generously added those in on the day of the wedding. The cake looked fabulous- and tasted better than any of the cakes that i've had at other friends weddings. We were truly happy with their service.

Simply fantastic. My husband and I sampled a ton of wedding cake in Cincinnati, and found ourselves sick to our stomachs after every tasting due to all the sickly-sweet sugar! Maribelle was the last place we sampled, and they were perfect. They use French techniques, which focus more on butter and sweet cream, with almost no sugar. The cake was three tiers of alternating English chocolate truffle torte and tiramisu topped with chocolate ganache and white chocolate Gran Marnier mousse. The scrollwork on the cake was especially designed by Maribelle to match the traditional Versailles Palace-styled decor of the Hilton Continental Ballroom, and they matched the lilac-colored grosgrain ribbon to the ribbons on my wedding dress. They also went through several albums of their cakes, and other people's cakes, and pointed out basic mistakes people make with wedding cakes. Seth, who did our cake himself, is young, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and incredibly talented. We couldn't have been more pleased. The cake arrived exactly on time, and they set everything up beautifully. Seth was even incredibly flexible when I was 3 days late bringing the cake-stand back!

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous cake. We weren’t thrilled with the chocolate cake (more on that below), but our other guests liked it, and everyone loved the white chocolate with mocha raspberry filling and the orange butter with strawberry cream cheese filling. Maribelle cake = Yum!

Responsiveness: 9/10
Generally heard back right away.

Professionalism: 8/10
Had a couple of problems with mix-ups in payment, and a BIG problem in terms of cake flavors. At our first meeting, we had discussed having three cake flavors (chocolate, white chocolate, and orange butter). At the end of the meeting, we decided to nix the chocolate in favor of more orange butter and we discussed this change during several phone calls with them. However, when our DoC Kristen spoke with them closer to the date, they told her that they had no record of the change and would not make it. Grrrrr….

Value for Cost: 10/10
Yes, I know. Maribelle is the most expensive bakery in town. But once you try their cake, you’ll understand why. And, unlike a certain other large, well-known bakery in town, they don’t freeze their cakes at all (and YES, this other bakery DOES freeze their cakes no matter what else you’ve heard).

Flexibility: 7/10
See the professional bit above. I KNOW that we discussed the change (I have notes of all of it), and even though Kristen contacted them before they’d even started making the cake, they were unwilling to budge.

Quality of Service-During the tastings, they offered a great selection and really spent time with you. As I brought my own design to them, they were wonderful in offering their own ideas on how to apply it & improve it. The only issue I had was their interaction w/the florist which I will detail later

Responsiveness- I really liked how excited they were for our wedding day & the cake that we had designed. I was also really impressed that they remembered our name, cake design, & wedding date when my in laws met them at a Bakery Tasting Event.

Professionalism-Overall everyone that I interacted w/was very professional. They asked the right questions, were courteous, & took notes. The single issue I had with them was their interaction, or lack thereof, with the florist in how the flowers were getting added to our cake. As I had gone over all of my very specific design specifications with Maribelle, I expected them to be in charge of the outcomes of the cake, both artistically & in taste. Upon getting to my reception & seeing the cake, the flowers were not as I had directed covering up much of the design (and cost) of the cake. Come to find out the florist arrived after the cake was dropped off so Maribelle leave's the flower placement to the florist. Apparently this is something that procedurally happens that I was not made aware of. If I was, I would’ve gone over the cake specification w/the florist. Unfortunately I did not, as I left the artistic outcome as Maribelle's responsibility so there was a gap in communication. After the wedding, I approached Maribelle w/my concern & disappointment & they were very defensive & unassuming of any responsibility. All in all the cake was still beautiful, just not what I had contracted out.

Value-A higher priced cake vendor. With this cost you get high quality ingredients, more creative flavors to choose from, a fresh and moist cake, & the best attention to detail in design in Cinci.

Flexibility-Very flexible with design

We searched for and tasted many, many vendors wedding cake samples prior to making our decision to chose Maribelle Cakery. Everyone we spoke with about this vendor raved about the job they would do for us making it an easy decision to check them out further. After our initial meeting, we were sold as well! Through the entire process and during our tasting and design meetings, we had every confidence that our cake would arrive as perfect in taste and appearance as we had imagined and participated in designing, especially since we upgraded to their "Couture" price point. (the most expensive cake design on their menu). When we arrived at our reception venue and had the opportunity to see it upon entering the facility we looked at each other and said "oh no"! Then when we had a chance to look at it closely, we almost cried. The cake was incomplete. The "Couture" decoration we agreed to, helped design and paid for, obviously had not been finished, rather just halfway decorated with portions of borders and sugar flowers. Weeks after the wedding we began to hear from our "closest" friends and family, (you know, those people who tell you the way it really is), that the cake was "nice", but dry, not that memorable and that the cake tasted like it HAD been frozen. Stunning, since they stress that they DO NOT freeze their cakes. We were and still are crushed and even more embarrassed that it came across the way it did to our guests since in our mind, the cake is as important as the wedding gown! When we called to discuss our disappointment and left a message, we NEVER, ever received a call back. Each time when calling the bakery we got the answering machine each time. Also, we found that their door is always locked at the store, unless your have an appointment). To add further insult to injury, we never received our anniversary cake, which we also paid for! We are very disappointed to have celebrated our one year anniversary with out having that as part of our celebration :(
