There is a reason Roeser's has been in business for over 100 years! We used Roeser's for our four tier wedding cake (multi flavors) and for our "make your own" cookie bar (with over 400 cookies.) Their pricing and level of customer service is unparalleled. First of all, they don't make you schedule an "appointment" to taste cake or pay for it- you just go in and tell them you need to sample cakes. You pick the ones you like and then you order it- very simple, very old school. Our guests told us that the cake was the best wedding cake they have ever had! We also ordered almost 400 different types of cookies for our guests to take as favors- let's put it this way- they were gone with in a few minutes!

My family has been buying from Roeser's for over 20 years. Great service, fantastic cakes, and those donuts?!?!? Delicious. I bought a cake for my daughter's bday that turned out fabulous. I'm strongly considering them for my wedding cake. I love Roeser's!!

My dad and John Roeser, III go way back and I was so excited to have my wedding cake made by an old family friend! My husband and I received so many compliments on the cake and not a single piece was left over at the end of the night! I loved how John made our tasting so enjoyable and he even helped us pick the flavors of our cake tiers with experienced advice and suggestions. The cake was delivered in plenty of time for the florist to decorate it with flowers. It looked beautiful and tasted even better!!! I highly recommend Roeser's Bakery!

Roeser's Bakery provided us with the cake of our dreams and delicious sweets to make our dessert table complete! They were very easy to work with and replicated the photo of the design I brought in perfectly. The cake we cut and had on display for our guests was yellow cake with fudge filling and fondant covering. We then served to our guests a cake that was 2 layers yellow cake, 1 layer chocolate cake with fresh strawberries and custard filling. You can always have different options/multiple options of cake types to serve separate than the cake you cut. We had several cake bite options on our dessert table; orange crunch cake, turtle, red velvet, lemon, carrot and flourless chocolate, also chocolate dipped strawberries in our wedding colors. They were always professional, flexible and kind to work with, not to mention---delicious and beautiful products!

I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Roeser's Bakery. Their service to quality of cakes is fantastic. Every step of the way they were helpful, offering advice based on their experience! I received several compliments from our guests about the cake including both the way it looked and the way it tasted. We could not have been more pleased with our cake!

We looked through a big book of all kinds of cake designs and picked out elements that we liked. The decorators are willing to do whatever you can think of, and they provide helpful suggestions as well! Our wedding cake was just as I pictured it, I would definitely recommend them!

My husband and I choose to not have a traditional wedding cake made, but instead sheet cakes delivered for the reception. Our wedding coordinator runs her own cake business and in order to save money she created a fake cake with one slice inserted at the bottom for us to cut. It was the perfect idea and I recommend it to anyone. You save TONS!

Anyway, to comment on Roeser's bakery, they did a fabulous job. The cake was moist and delicious. My husband and I ordered the cake months in advance before we knew our final count. As a result we had estimated 220 slice of cake when we only had 175 guests. Roesers was nice enough to cut each slice.

Our reception venue gave each person a slice of cake. Left over cake was put out in the hallway for anyone who wanted to take some to go. Before the end of the night was done - it was all gone!!!!!!!

Days later we were still receiving calls from people asking where did we get the cake. I'm really a fan of Roeser's Bakery and now my family is addicted. We even order a birthday cake for this Saturday.

I recommend them highly.

Okay. Maybe Roeser's Bakery is not for brides that are particularly or easily stressed out. When we went to pay the balance a couple days before the wedding, it took them about 10 minutes (and several, "What name is the order under?"s) to find the order sheet. However, they did eventually find the order sheet (and it hadn't been completely forgotten about, as the decorator had called the previous day with some questions about changes we wanted from the base design in their book).

The cake arrived at the venue on time and it was beautiful. It also tasted delicious; even better than when we did the tasting. We opted for marble poundcake, raspberry filling, and buttercream frosting and we got TONS of compliments from our guests (both on look and taste).

If we had to do the whole day again, we wouldn't change anything about the cake!
