Valerie, the owner was so accommodating. She helped us get the right cake and the right price for our budget! And her cake truffles are the BEST! =) Also, her husband is a minister, and if you book both of them, you get 20% off of the cake! Great deal, and helped us save a little money! Very nice people... check out the website! Our wedding isn't until Dec. 31, this year, so I don't have any pictures to show you.

We had a good experience with Party Cakes. Our cake was beautiful and tasted great. I'm very picky - and they exceeded our expectations. I do wish they offered more flavors, but in all honesty - at the end of the day they were good to work with and our cake was perfect.

This place also lost a payment of ours, when we insisted that we had paid in full they acted like it was impossible because if we had then they would have it recorded in 6 different places... so I had to go through months of online transactions to find where we paid them, when I did find it I gave them the date and they went through their receipts and sure enough, we had paid in full. No apologies from them. I asked the cake designer to do a "random" dot pattern on the frosting, she insisted that she was too "OCD" to do that and they wouldn't have to be set in a perfect pattern... And, although confirmed at least 3 times, they still delivered the cake late on the day of the wedding. -Mrs. Setty

I found Party Cakes when looking for my wedding cake and stopped by and pick up my "drive by" wedding cake samples they provide. Even though I didn't go with them for my wedding cake they had some delicious cake truffles in my samples box. They were wonderful and almost melted in your mouth!!!! I simply had to have them for my reception favor to take home. I had already bought what I thought would be my reception favor but felt one more little "goody" would be the icing on the cake as they say and my experience with this little bakery was great! They were very friendly and professional and everything was ready when my husband went to pick up the favors. They were the hit of the reception and everyone asked where I got the cake truffles from and of course I recommended "Party Cakes" in Berkley. You should try them out.
