Our wedding cake was absolutely delicious. I love Prantl's baked goods usually, and their wedding cake was no exception. They did a good job working with us to determine the size and style of cake we needed, and were prompt and flexible when it came to meetings and delivery. They're a bit pricier than some of the other options, but we realized you pay for the "brand", and we wanted a bakery close to the venue. All of our guests loved the cake and it looked exactly like we had planned. Even though you might be able to find a more affordable wedding cake elsewhere, I would still recommend Prantl's.

Prantl's bakery created a wonderful cake and desserts for our wedding. They created a wedding variation of their burnt almond torte for our wedding cake and then a variety of assorted junior pastries. 2 months later, our guests are still raving about how delicious the desserts were. We couldn't have been happier with the way everything turned out. Thank you for adding to the happiness of our wedding Prantl's!

We got the burnt almond torte as our wedding cake and it was absolutely delicious! Our first priority was that our cake taste amazing, and Prantl's was by far our favorite. It was really something special, and all of our guests were raving about it. The cake was also very affordable compared to competitors.

Prant's was so unbelievably unprofessional. I have heard such great things, but when my fiance and I went for a cake tasting a few weeks ago, they were not prepared. They didn't have anything prepared for us, didn't have any of the paperwork I had filled out previously, and just seemed to bank on their reputation. Needless to say, we went elsewhere!

I used Prantl's Bakery for my wedding cake and groom cake this summer on my July 19th wedding at the Mansion at Maple Heights in Pittsburgh. We used Prantl's Burnt Almond Torte as our wedding cake, and had a groom's cake made with their cookies n cream filling. From beginning to end, I corresponded with Annette, and she was a dream to work with. She always got back to me within a day and had some fabulous ideas! She made extra efforts to understand all that I envisioned and make my ideas come to fruition. On the day of the wedding, they delivered the cakes on time and did a great job displaying them. Finally, the cakes were just delicious (as we knew they would be). People from out of town raved about it, and some even went to Prantl's on their way out of town to pick up things to take home. I would recommend Prantl's to any couple getting married that needs a fabulous cake!!! :)

I am so glad I got my cake from Prantl's. It was absolutely delicious and looked gorgeous. The burnt almond torte is my favorite cake in the world and was the only kind of cake that I wanted at my wedding. It fit in perfectly with our farm wedding. Because it was the burnt almond torte I think it was more expensive than other cakes, but it was worth it.

We got a classic burnt almond torte cake for our wedding. Prantl's truly are professionals and it is clear as to why they are one of the leading bakers in Pittsburgh. Diane was so friendly to work with and I appreciated using their online system. It made things a lot easier to order and communicate. Our guests (even the Cleveland ones) raved about this special Pittsburgh treat. Kudos to Prantl's for always providing a top notch product!

Overall I had a good experience. I felt like the bakery was always so busy that we never received the professional attention that most vendors give to wedding clients. Consultations are chaotic and not all of our details got written down. I was a little nervous but everything worked out great. I wanted icing piped to look like lace and had a lot of trouble finding a bakery that would do such an intricate design. A few bakeries had similar patterns but charged a decent fee to do it. Prantl's had a beautiful scroll pattern that looked like lace and didn't charge any extra for it. This made our cake a great value compared to several other bakeries I considered. Everyone raves about Prantl's burnt almond cake, but their red velvet is awesome too, which is what we went with. We received quite a few compliments from our guests. Our cake looked perfect, no bumps or lines in the frosting, and the lace pattern was beautiful. I would recommend Prantl's.

We went to Prantl's in Shady Side for an initial tasting. All the samples were individual common samples set out for us and our 2 guests. The cakes were great and highly recommended. The ordering process was a bit confusing as all referenced pictures and styles are done through their facebook page, though it is nice because it is accessible from anywhere. The cake was designed with 3 individual layers, 3 types of filling, with a scroll work, and colored frosted roses with toasted almonds. We had 120 servings for our 3 tier cake, and ALL 120 servings were picked up and eaten! The cake was professional made, delivered, and very tasty. The value per slice beat out Lincoln and Bethel. Very highly recommended!

I also used them to create the groom's cake and we got so many compliments on our cake with a Jameson bottle on it. The cake was delicious and I was sad that there was none left to take home!

Burnt almond torte made an outstanding wedding cake!!! I would recommend ordering the original cake with real custard -- you have to order in sheet cake version and store in the refrigerator prior to serving. The cake on display can have a non-refrigerated form of custard which is good, but just not as delicious as the traditional cake. Prantl's was very easy to work and very reliable!!

We did not get the Burnt Almond Torte. We may be the only couple ever to not get that cake from Prantl's. What we did get was the best cake ever. We received a lot of comments about how great the cake was. For an october wedding we did a pumpkin spice cake. It was so good and everyone loved it. They delivered in the morning when they said they would and everything was great.

We tasted some of the best bakeries in Pittsburgh for our wedding and hands down Prantl's had the most to offer. They did beautiful customized decorating of our wedding cake. It was delicious - one of the only things I made sure to eat at the wedding. They were also the best price. I highly recommend giving them a try. We had the burnt almond torte (in disguish - the almonds were served on the side so that the cake could be decorated as a traditional wedding cake). We received so many compliments on it.

Prantl's wedding cakes are delicious... but their customer service needs a lot of improvement! I live in Georgia and visited with them 2 times in person before my wedding day, along with phone calls, e-mails back and forth, and my own mother dropping by the shop to wrap up any last minute details and bring in decoration materials. Yet, the week of the wedding, the bakery still didn’t know the flavor of my wedding cake or what it was even supposed to look like! Complete incompetence! The staff tried to glaze over the issue by assuring me it was a minor glitch and that everything would be perfect for the big day... but truthfully, I wasn’t sure when I sliced open the cake on my wedding day if it was going to be what I had ordered. I actually had my florist place the feather decorations on the cake because I didn’t trust Prantl’s to do the job correctly. The only reason I went with them is because they can do a decent red velvet cake, being a bakery located in the North. Thankfully, everything turned out just fine on the wedding day and the cake tasted great, but it’s honestly not worth the stress and agony they put me through. Their incompetence was the last thing I needed to deal with the week of the wedding. My suggestion: avoid this bakery at all costs!

She emailed several pictures and I was able to go to the bakery to see the test molds. The final result was absolutely beautiful and we received many compliments on the cake.

My husband and I visited a number of bakeries before we found Prantl’s. They were the first ones who were willing to do the design that I wanted at no extra charge, and they were very friendly and nice from the start. Also they had the most unique cakes compared to the other bakeries that we had visited.

They were hard to get a hold of by phone, so I would recommend just dropping by if you are in the neighborhood and have some time or email them. I am from out of town and so I went to do a tasting on a Saturday afternoon…it took a little while for someone to be able to free themselves from behind the counter to talk with us, but I took that as a GREAT sign since they were that busy it must mean a delicious quality product…and I was right!

We went with the hidden burnt almond torte and our guest raved about it. A guest (who's family owns a bakery in NJ) even told us that they loved our cake so much that they went back to the bakery the day after the wedding to pick up another cake to take back home with them.

Prantl's was also able to accommodate us with a smaller gluten-free cake for my father-in-law and he said it was fabulous as well.

They really know what they are doing at Prantl’s and I am so happy we went with them!

My husband and I chose to work with Prantl's, in part because their services were included in our catering contract (we had 3 different bakeries from which to choose) but mostly because we LOVE Prantl's baked goods! Our exchanges with Prantl's were both pleasant and efficient; we took in pictures to our initial meeting of what we wanted our cake to look like, ate some delicious cake, and talked about the details we wanted. Additionally, we wanted a red velvet wedding cake, but they weren't sure if cream cheese frosting would work on the outside of the cake, so they tested it for us and let us know how it looked/held up before we had to make any final decisions. Prantl's coordinated with our venue, Phipps, to arrange all of the details, so we hardly even had to think about the cake! Our guests also raved about how delicious our red velvet cake was! Overall, Prantl's was very pleasant and easy to work with, and I would definitely recommend them!

I ordered two cakes from Prantl's--a wedding cake and a surprise groom's cake. Both turned out fabulous. I wanted a very specific design on my wedding cake, and Prantl's was the first bakery that didn't tell me they would charge me an arm and a leg to do it. They were happy to do it, and it came out beautiful. As for the groom's cake, the owner of the bakery spent time on the phone with me going over ideas for the perfect cake. It was sweet of her to help me brainstorm. In the end, they made an awesome cake (it had the Pittsburgh skyline around the side and the Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates logos on top with the words "Pittsburgh Pride"). But top marks aren't awarded simply for decoration. They tasted amazing, too.

It was a bit hectic getting in to talk to someone- they don't really make appointments, so we tried to find a time when they wouldn't be too busy, but it's Prantl's, so they're pretty much always busy from what I can tell. But they hooked us up with some cakes to try- we went with the Burnt Almond Torte, which was by far our favorite. They're open to do just about anything- my husband wanted scroll on the sides to match the leaves on our invitations, so he gave them a sample and they made it happen. There was really no hassle involved; we got married at Phipps and they knew just where to go and what to do, so we just said "Hey, we want this cake" and didn't have to think about it after that.

I was so excited to introduce my out of town guest to the Pittsburgh tradition of burnt almond torte and Prantl's has the best! It was difficult to get ahold of the associate responsible for wedding cakes at times and I had to plead a little to have them add strawberries but my guests raved about it. I suggest getting a small cake of another options for those with nut allergies.

Absolutely perfect! We went with the famous burnt almond torte. It was 3 tiers with the top and bottom covered in almonds and the middle tier smooth white. It looked gorgeous with just a few flowers as accents and it tasted amazing!
We worked with Annette Mich - she was great. Very professional and very easy to work with. We coordinated via email and phone for the most part and she was extremely prompt in her response. She gave a few suggestions such as a shimmery finish for the middle tier but she didn't push anything else which was really nice. I knew exactly what I wanted and I was very happy with the results!

We ordered the "torte in disguise" for our wedding cake. I brought in a picture of what I would like the cake to look like and they did it to a "T!" They had even asked me to come in prior to the wedding to OK some of the icing decorations. I really appreciated the care and effort they put into making such a beautiful and delicious cake.

We got the burnt almond torte for our wedding (small two-tiered round cake to cut and larger sheet cake) and it was delicious! Our wedding was on a Sunday and Prantl's was able to deliver it to our venue that morning. Our guests loved the cake and we even have a little left over that we can eat on our first anniversary! I'd recommend Prantl's to anyone. Great service, great cake.

We had a great experience with Prantl's making our wedding cake and would recommend them without hesitation. We had a simple 2 - tiered burnt almont torte and a small torte for each table in lieu of a large sheet cake. Great, laid-back customer service with no problems.

My husband and I have always loved Prantl's burnt almond torte cake! We were very excited to have it as our wedding cake. It was perfect, of course, and our guests ate it all (and we expected to have left-overs based upon how much we ordered)! Our guests raved about how much they liked it. It was wonderful to work with Prantl's and have such a great cake!

We got a burnt almond torte sheet cake for our wedding cake. It was beautiful and most importantly delicious! My brother told me it was the best cake he had ever eaten! The one downside was that we had to pick it up ourselves but it didn't end up being a problem.

Everyone from Pittsburgh knows Prantl's Bakery in Shadyside and their famous burnt almont torte. My husband and I have been buying bakery there for years and they were the obvious choice for our wedding cake. I took them a picture of a cake from a magazine and they were not only able to create it but make it even more beautiful than the photo. We had the burnt almond torte with buttercream frosting (no almonds on the outside). It was delicious and all of our guests raved that it was the best wedding cake they have ever had. I would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to impress their guests!

My husband and I had a history with Prantl's famous Burnt Almond Torte. Having gone to grad school in the Shadyside area of Pittsburgh, we had had the Burnt Almond Torte many times and it quickly became our favorite dessert. When I found out that I could have the more traditional wedding cake design that I wanted but still have the Burnt Almond Torte cake, I was soooooo happy. Rather than having a wedding cake that only looked good, ours looked good and tasted fabulous. Several of our guests commented that it was the best wedding cake that they had ever had, and wanted to know who had made it. We happily responded Prantl's Bakery in Shadyside and their famous Burnt Almond Torte.

Everyone at the wedding agreed that our cake and cookies were amazing thanks to Prantl's. The cake from here was our favorite by far and the delivery process was very easy even though our venue was over 60 miles away from the bakery. The level of service and professionalism from the staff could have been much better in making the ordering and decision making processes stress-free. It was difficult to visualize what our cake would look like without pictures or help from staff. Also, upon stopping in a few weeks before the wedding to finalize everything, I was told that I would need more cake than what I had originally ordered after telling the first person how many guests I was going to have - I was glad I stopped in that day, or we wouldn't have had cake for everyone!

I ordered their famous Burnt Almond Torte Cake as my wedding cake (3 round tiers, then a sheet cake in the back to feed the rest, much cheaper) and ALL of my guests RAVED about it! Everyone just loved it. I am not a regular cake kind of girl so this was the best. I even gave them gluten-free cake mix and they baked the top tier gluten-free for my husband and his family. We also ordered the 12 dozen cookie platter and guests seemed to really enjoy that as well.

The cake tasted amazing, but it wasn't exactly what I wanted it to look like. I gave them a picture of what I wanted but it still didn't turn out how I wanted it. I wanted a more "bling" look to it but I didn't care for what they considered "edible bling" it just looked like grey dots.

Burnt Almond Torte Wedding Cake....need I say more? Ok, i will!! I first learned about Prantl's Bakery when I went to a Wedding show to meet vendors. I can't believe I lived in Pittsburgh all this time and never heard of Prantl's. When I tried their white, chocolate, raspberry wedding cake sample I thought I might have winner. It was delicious, creamy, and perfect. Then I tried their sample of burnt almond torte cake, and immediately fell in love. I met with Diane at Prantl's and she helped me plan the perfect wedding cake. Diane was professional, friendly, and had great ideas. The cake turned out perfect and was so delicious. I have friends who are getting married now and already know they want the same cake! I had a great experience with Prantl's and continue to visit the bakery. Happy Cake Tasting : )
