This is THE place to get your wedding cake! I thought I'd check out this place because they have the best cupcakes. Boy, did I make the right decision! Not only did I end up with the most beautiful cake ever (alright, I might be just a *bit* biased), but the owner was able to give me perfect directions how to keep this beautiful cake safe all the way from Denver to Moab. I gave her a a general idea that I wanted a cake that looked like a birch tree, with some ferns at the base. What she came up with was so much better than anything I imagined! And, not only that, but it was SO delicious! I'd recommend Mermaids Bakery to everyone!

Great place to get a wedding cake. We did the cupcakes and a cutting cake, and it was some of the best/ most reasonable price for cakes that we have found. Their Red Velvet is amazing, and I really liked the gluten free and normal option that they gave. They delivered, set up and made the presentation look wonderful, they even have cupcake stands to use.

Mermaids was a wonderful bakery to work with ~ they provided a small cake topper for us, as well as cupcakes for our guests! I took off a little for responsiveness just because I had initially reached out via e-mail and had challenges connecting; however once we met in person and migrated to contacting one another via phone there were no problems what so ever. All of the staff were very friendly and professional. They honored our vision of having a cupcake tier, and gave us lots of flavor options to choose from - each one was DELICIOUS!!! I cannot wait for our 1st anniversary to have more cake too! VERY affordable as well. THANK YOU MERMAIDS!

Mermaids Bakery provided the desserts for our wedding dessert bar. I actually had my tasting with the owner and loved her! She helped me determine the number of desserts I needed and made suggestions based on their best sellers, my preferences, budget, etc. Once I submitted the deposit I really didn't hear from the bakery until I called to confirm the day-of details. With everything else going on for the wedding, it was a bit stressful but worked out fine. I know they limit the number of weddings they do each weekend to make sure nothing gets forgotten.

We used Mermaids for our wedding cake as well as cupcakes for our wedding. The cake and cupcakes were delicious and everyone loved them. They provided us with stands which was super helpful and delivered past their actual closing time on that day so they were super flexible which was great.

My only comment here was that it was difficult at times to get a response from them. I did have to call them back several times when I would call to ask questions. To me it was not a big deal at all, but just a heads up if you are a bride that needs a super responsive vendor. That being said, the day of went off without a hitch and they were on time, the cake was great, and everything looked exactly how I wanted it. So no harm no foul in my opinion. I would definitely recommend them, I would just also recommend to follow up if you have questions. They will definitely be flexible with you and answer them, just have to get the right person on the phone :)

I can only say good things about Mermaids Bakery. My plan for our wedding was to bake all the desserts myself, freeze them, and then bake them the day of the wedding. The WEEK BEFORE our wedding, my fiance saw how much I was stressing about getting it all done, and he decided that we would go to a bakery. He located Mermaids Bakery a few miles from his home, and we went for a tasting. I have to eat gluten-free, and their GF Chocolate Dream IMMEDIATELY won my heart. I couldn't believe how good it tasted!! They agreed to make eight pies and three cakes, and to deliver them all after-hours to our wedding reception the very next week. I can't begin to express my relief!! As to price, I was shocked at how reasonable they were. Thank you, Mermaids Bakery for delicious desserts and stellar service. You took a huge load of stress off of this bride!

I brought in a picture of what I wanted my cake to look like and they did a wonderful job recreating it. I was very pleased with the looks and taste of the cake. The red velvet is to die for! Everyone at the wedding asked where the cake was from because it tasted so good. I would definitely recommend this bakery since the price is a good value for such an amazing cake!

I've used Mermaids for birthday cakes over the years, so we figured we try them for our wedding. They were fabulous! I loved their laid-back vibe and the fact that they don't charge differently for weddings. We did a variety of cupcakes (four flavors, three sizes) and a small cake for us on top, and it was delicious, beautiful and reasonably priced. It was just what we wanted. The only downside (which Mermaids had no control over) was that our venue still charged a cake-cutting fee even though we went with cupcakes. That was a bummer.

I'm so glad we went with Mermaid's bakery for our wedding cake! Diane was so excited when I told her I wanted a mad hatter style cake. The look was fantastic and to this day, whenever anyone sees a picture of the cake, they always want to know who made it! Diane also help us with cost as she made our cake large enough to feed half the guests and a sheet cake for the other half. The chocolate, fresh strawberry, and vanilla filling sheet cake, I was told, was delicious and moist. The keylime with fresh raspberries was amazing and my husband and I both went back for a second piece! The only issue I had was with Turtle cake, which was the top tier. We had to dig around to find the nuts and you could hardly taste the caramel. I wish there had been bigger hunts of nuts and caramel in the cake. I also had a german chocolate birthday cake made for my husband 6 months before the wedding and that was FANTASTIC! The only real downside was that Diane sent us a blank contract, rather then filling everything. Fortunately my wedding planner took care of that. I would definitely recommend Mermaids Bakery for any future bride!

Taste--We chose this bakery due to their ability to make gluten-free cupcakes taste, well, not gluten-free. I will give them 5 stars for that. Their cupcakes are delicious, and generally speaking, quite cost effective. They are absolutely amazing and everyone ate more than one. Red Velvet was a must.

Now on to the less than 5-star ratings...

Service-- The bakery is busy, and I found myself having to double and triple check my order with them. They are a bit scatterbrained, and I wasn't confident that we were speaking the same language when it came to decorations, flavors, etc. I even emailed pictures of what I wanted, called to confirm, but didn't get exactly what I had hoped for upon delivery.

Professionalism-- All of my other vendors were organized and left me to be a worry-free bride, however, not knowing the outcome of the cupcakes left me a little unsettled, not to mention never receiving an invoice, being over-charged, and little add-ons that kept upping the overall cost.

Flexibility-- They are fairly flexible as long as you can pick up your own cake/cupcakes. That's right. The morning of your wedding, you can come and get 'em. They do offer a delivery service, but I was told that my venue was out of scope ( a 25-30 min drive for them). So, after a plea and an additional $60, they were able to make it happen. Funny thing, upon arriving at 2pm on our wedding day, my cupcakes hadn't even been decorated yet, so I wonder what would have happened if I had picked them up at 9am as planned? The extra time seemed to be needed.

I WOULD NEVER RECCOMMEND this bakery for a wedding!! I went with Mermaids Bakery because it was on of the few bakeries that did tres leche flavor. The first tasting was good. I didn't have the flavors I picked for the wedding which with our e-mails I thought she would prep tres leche cupcake. Diana was very nice and seemed excited for my wedding theme being about movies. Well on top of HAIR being found on one of the cupcakes, my cupcakes were not how they were told they were going to look, she was frazzled and using excuse after excuse. To top it all off my top cake was the wrong cake flavor. SO after my wedding to get a meeting with her to talk about my wedding cake was impossible even when I told her my cake was the wrong flavor she had the nerve to ask me if I was sure, very unprofessional.

I am so happy to leave a great review for Mermaids Bakery...the cake that they made for our wedding day was AMAZING! Not only did it taste wonderful (we did part vanilla with lemon cream and chocolate with chocolate cream/chocolate chips) but it looked funky, fun and dramatic! Diana put together great decorations to top it all off (feathers, roses, beads, etc.). It is hard to describe how cool the cake looked...definitely unique! Thank you so much and we will always recommend you!=)

I wasn't sure what to expect from Mermaids, as I relied pretty heavily on reviews to choose vendors and hadn't seen any regarding Mermaids' wedding cakes. I was also nervous because I had called several times to confirm the details of what I had ordered and to confirm delivery timings, and frequently I felt like the person on the phone had no idea what they were doing. The cake and cupcakes showed up on time though, and were tasty. Cake could have been a little fresher, but was overall good. The price cannot be beat.
