The best things about Schenk's Bakery are the price & the taste of the cakes & baked goodies. We went to other vendors who were charging almost $7/slice for a cake with just butter creme icing that didn't taste nearly as good!

Unfortunately, a few things happened when working with Schenk's that I was displeased with. We went for our initial tasting in January & were told we could come back at any time to order our cake. When we tried to go to order our cake in February, we were told we could not order our cake that day & we had to book an appointment. Obviously, there is not a set procedure for this. We did schedule an appointment and when we showed up, we were pushed off to a new guy who not experienced in taking cake orders. The BIGGEST NEGATIVE was on the wedding day. I was told the week prior the cake wold arrive between 1-3 for our 5:30 wedding. On the day of the wedding, the bakery called our venue saying our cake would not be delivered until 4 P.M., and my florist still had stuff the cake with flowers between layers. The wedding coordinator at the venue had to call the bakery & reason with them as to why the cake had to be delivered by 3, NOT 4PM. Finally, MY CAKE WAS LOPSIDED! I had a cake with four layers with pillars between each layer to be stuffed with flowers so the pillars would be hidden. My florist was afraid to put too many flowers on the cake because the cake was not even. The cake ended up not looking like what I wanted because it was not assembled properly by the bakey.

Good for taste, price, and simple cakes. Go somewhere else if you want something a little different.
