Ordered the cake about 3 months before October 2013 wedding. Cake was delivered to a downtown St Louis venue same day by bakery staff. Exactly as we ordered it. Very happy with sales rep knowledge, suggestions and was prompt for our appt. Very pleasant to deal with. Family and friends at reception were very happy with design and quality of taste and many asked to take some home. We were very happy with bakery overall and would recommend them for any event. We have purchased many quality bakery products over the years and always happy with what we purchased. We were not disappointed in the cake. Great job McArthurs staff and thank you.

We LOVED our cake. If you like carrot cake, make sure you ask to taste it. We're big carrot cake fans and loved it. We did one tier carrot and two tiers amaretto and we were very pleased!

I thought it would come out to be more expensive than some of the others we tasted, but it was actually one of the more affordable, even with our special cake flavors.

My husband and I were pleased with our wedding cake from McArther's Bakery. The cake tasted wonderful and we received many compliments on it. They did take the time to match certain colors of our cake to my wedding colors. The price of the cake was fair in comparison to other vendors. However, their representative that met with us was less than professional and not very helpful.

Yummy. We decided to order a wedding cake about a month before the wedding and McArther's was extremely accommodating on such short notice. They had photos, cake flavors, fillings, frostings & prices listed on their webpage so planning & ordering from a distance was easy and we knew exactly what we were getting. The cake #212 was a beautiful design and the chocolate cake with raspberry filling and white frosting tasted great.

Everything was perfect. Our cake was wonderful and tasted absolutely delicious. Wedding day details, as far as delivery and setup were taken care of between McArthur's and the banquet hall. This was a huge help, taking one less thing off my long list of things to do. Everything about the cake was exactly what I wanted!!

We had used McArthurs Bakery for other events so this was the first place my daughter did a tasting for her wedding. It was also the last! She loved the Amaretto cake with white buttercream icing. The cake was a simple tiers cake with a flower topper. We received raves on the cake. We also had McArthurs make the same flavor for her baby shower the next year!

First let it be known I, the groom, ordered the cake and messed it up...oops.
The short of the experience is that McArthers made ordering easy and the pricing was very reasonable. Most importantly, as far as I'm concerned, our guests said the cake tasted fantastic.
Me not ordering the design on the cake left us with a plain white round 5 tier cake with fondent ribbon. Unfortunately it looked like it made a Trans-Atlantic journey to get to us. The icing was gloppy and uneven, the ribbon was not lined up and one of the layers was bulging.
Perhaps this all happened after they dropped it off at the reception venue, hard to say, but still a bummer.
McArther's was very responsive to our concerns and seemed truly sorry that the cake was in that sort of condition.

McAuthur's provided me with exactly what I wanted. My cake was perfect, delicious, and delivered on time. I even rented a cake stand and it was perfect. The one thing that disappointing me was the the owner of this Bakery in St. Louis uses his business as a way to promote his conservative right-wing politics. It's because of this that my sister in law will not be using their services for her wedding in May. He blasted a local member of Congress on his electronic sign outside of his bakery for supporting a particular piece of legislation. If he would have kept his politics to himself, I'd still be a customer.

I have to say that the cake itself was delicious and I recomend their regular services to anyone that just wants a good cake! My job uses them and their sheet cakes are just as good! The design we eventually came up with was very well done! There are three locations and only one that cators for weddings. The person over weddings has no clue of cakes except what is in their books. We have never ordered a cake before and were feeling rushed into making a decision of what we wanted on our first visit. We felt that there should have been more sessions set up in order to think about a design for the wedding cake and given a pricing guide to understand more of what it was we could afford to work with in our budget. We would have gone with another vendor had it not been for the fact that our cake was being covered by our reception hall.

I loved the cake that they provided. Looking back at the photos one tier looked crooked, but that may have been the wallpaper.

The only complaint I would have is the first time I went, the coordinator would not allow me to order the cake that I wanted. He said I needed to come up with my own idea. I was a little aggrivated at that.

Overall, the cake was great - it was gone in about 30 minutes at the wedding. Everyone had seconds!

Although the cake turned out gorgeous and tasted great, we had trouble getting a straight answer to our questions. I actually had to go back a second time after finalizing my order and reorder because the employee did not know that they could not do what they told us they could. In the end it turned out perfect!

The wedding cake was beautiful.

The groom's cake had the wrong number on it, but that was the only problem.

The cake for rehearsal wasn't ready in time, but they did a great job at fixing the problem.

Everything tasted great!!! It was commented on a lot about the flavor and fillings!

The cake was beautiful and delicious. Visiting the bakery and having a "cake tasting" was fun, and it didn't even take very long. They have done tons of cakes over the years so they are very experienced. It was $500 for a four-tier cake with a gum-paste bow on top. Worth every penny! Everyone loved the cake!

McArthur's has a great selection, and they made us a gorgeous cake. We looked through the book and saw a cake with fruit on it, asked if we could have it be all strawberries on top, they did it without a problem and without charging us extra. The cake was delicious and gorgeous, everyone who has seen the pictures has said it was one of the most beautiful cakes they have ever seen. They were amazing!

We like the selection that McArthur's Bakery had. The tasting appointment was a pleasant one. We decided on different flavors for different layers of the cake. All were very good. We just provided a swatch of fabric for the colors and the cake was wonderfully matched. The price was a bit high but we still purchased our cake from them. The staff was very nice. We had no complaints.

Our cake was deeeeeeeeelicious! I love McArthur's. The key to saving on cakes is getting sheet cakes to supplement your real cake, and those are cut up in the back and served. McArthur's did a great job... the only bad thing was that they charge a lot of little extras, like putting ribbon on the tiers. I ended up just bringing my own ribbon and doing it myself.

Ok this is going to be a tough review. My final product was absolutely freaking amazing, if a little dry (they prebake and freeze their cakes..and you can tell).

BUT everything leading up to that was just a fiasco. They treated us like dirt at our meeting, after making us wait over an hour past our appointment time. If I was not contractually obligated to use them, I would NEVER had used them.

One piece of advice:
Instead of freezing our cake for our anniversary, we ordered new. We learned that we had to give them 4-5 months notice to do so. Which we hadnt done so we had to find another baker to remake.

I think that's insane for 1 8" layer cake.

I got a 3 tier cake from this place and it was absolutely delicious. Everyone loved the cake and I didn't really have any pieces left because it was so good. The cake was gorgeous and they were very helpful with choosing flavors. They were also the cheapest I have seen for the cake. Definitely get it from here because it's worth it.

McArthur's did an amazing job on our cake. We went with a basic three-tiered buttercream -- two levels of chocolate and one level of amaretto, and everyone LOVED it. The design color came out perfectly, the cake tray was much less foil-y than expected (a very good thing), and the frosting was smooth enough to accommodate our topper. All in all, I would go with McArthur's again in a heartbeat!
