I was so please with my experience at specialty cakes. Although our wedding is still a few months away and we haven't actually seen the cake in person yet, the process of deciding what we wanted was flawless! They were able to come up with a design that was exactly what I had imagined and the price was extremely reasonable! Cannot wait to see our cake and cupcakes in person! I know they will look great and taste amazing!!!!

Tammy and her team did an amazing job! They did a four-tiered wedding cake for us and an Atlanta Braves grooms cake. Both turned out exactly as I envisioned - maybe even better! Her cakes are so good, I still pop into the shop for a cupcake now and then :)

I HIGHLY recommend Specialty Cakes by Tammy!

We requested a 3 tier gluten free wedding cake, regular sheet cakes, and 2 groom's cakes. I picked up the groom's cake on Friday afternoon. Specialty Cakes was on vacation, so I had to pick up at the back door. I am SO lucky this happened.. and that I glanced at the cooler. I saw a cake that looked somewhat like what I wanted. I asked if it were ours and she said yes. However, it was missing an entire tier, there were icing balls instead of pearl, and the lace work was super floral ugly and not intricate lace. When I described how I had wanted the cake, the girl said, "Oh, so like the picture?" Um, yes, please and thank you. I was very calm and happy with the fact that they would fix it for the next day. And they did add the 3rd tier and changed the icing balls to pearls. However, the ugly lace was still very floral and not intricate whatsoever. It was pretty, but not what I had wanted. The company is aware of my feelings, as I made a phone call post wedding. I also let them know that their gluten free cake is not good at all. I would have much rather used Betty Crocker's gluten free cake mix... That stuff is yummy! So, keep a tab on what your cake looks like and don't order gluten free until they fix their recipe. On a more positive note, everyone said the regular cake was delicious.

Specialty Cakes responded with the following comments:

Dear Connie, I'm so sorry that you didn't have a perfect experience with your cake since that is obviously what we always strive for. Since your wedding we have made a few changes that will hopefully make sure this never happens again. For one, when changes are made to a wedding cake a second appointment must be made so new paperwork is made out to avoid any error. Since your cake started out as a 2 tier the extra servings were added to the price but not changed in the wording on the order form to make sure no error. Once again I'm so glad you caught the error and it was fixed before delivery. Also, we have changed our gluton free recipe with new gluton free flours and the market I believe that to be better as well. So thank you for your input I'm sure it has helped us to be a better bakery! Happy married life!

Tammy was so easy to work with. It took me several stops in to decide what I really wanted and she was very helpful and understanding each time. The cake turned out exactly as I had imagined and the taste was amazing, as her cakes are always delicious!

What can I say about this place??!! From the cookies for the Shower, to the Groom's Cake (that looked like weights on a barbell) for the rehearsal to the cupcakes at the reception, everything was perfect and everyone was raving!!! They all turned out better than I had imagined/expected and were ALL gone by the end of the night :) I highly recommend this business and will definitely be using them in the future!

We had our wedding cake done by Specialty Cakes for our 12/29/12 wedding. It turned out exactly as we had discussed & it was BEAUTIFUL! Tammy & her staff are very knowledgable, friendly & easy to work with. We changed our design multiple times and Tammy was very understanding and looked forward to making the changes. We had multiple compliments on how delicious and moist the cake was. We would highly recommend Specialty Cakes to anyone - they did a fabulous job.
