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!

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.

They were very professional and fun to work with. They took our ideas and ran with it. They can do whatever you like and listen to what you want. The cake was every thing we could of hoped for and more. Best thing about the cake is that it not only looked amazing but it tasted amazing as well.

We planned our wedding in Springfield, IL from Phoenix, AZ. We made several trips in town to choose vendors and finalize selections. Our cake was the easiest choice. The wedding reception was at the Crowne Plaza and Karleen Langhein was the Catering Director there. She recommended Tammy at Specialty Cakes and they offered a preferred vendor credit if we chose them. We tasted cake at several places and Specialty Cakes was the best, the sales credit made them the least expensive, and they setup the cake at the hotel for us. I would definitely recommend Tammy and Specialty Cakes and I would use them myself in the future.

We picked Specialty Cakes based on word of mouth from a friend who had a friend that chose their wedding cupcakes from them!

Tammy was super helpful when it came to really helping me figure out what kind of cake I wanted as far as decorations went. I had always imagined having this big, huge, grandiose cake like you see on tv shows, but once I started looking at actual designs, I kept choosing simple and really elegant. Once I told her what our colors were and she had a basic idea of the kind of cake I wanted, she was really able to run with it and give us ideas for it that I never would have thought of!

The cake itself was white, chocolate, and then marble/marble for the last two tiers. People loved it so much that my husband and I didn't even get to eat any, except for what little we fed to each other!! (No worries, we have the top tier!). The decoration on it was really well done and exactly what I had pictured once she drew up the sketch during our meeting.

General info: We had a four tier wedding cake that served about 125 people. I know that the charge is based on how elaborate the cake is, but we were really happy with the $300 we paid for it, and people were shocked that a cake that good and that well decorated wasn't more! I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a really good, moist, well decorated cake for any occasion. They also do cupcakes and things for other occasions, so it's really a good cover all!

Specialty Cakes helped me find the perfect cake for my wedding. I wasn't quite sure what I was looking for when I walked in the door but I walked out with a smile on my face and the ideal cake planned.

The cake was beautiful. The flavors were wonderful. I couldn't have asked for anything better!

Our cake was even more beautiful than what I described to them and tasted like a dream!! They have a wide variety of flavor options to suit even the pickiest of brides. I supplied my cake topper to them so I knew I had what I wanted, but they also had a variety on display in their showroom that I could have picked from. I didn't need to even confirm with them, they were on top of the job, the only time I needed to speak to them in the two weeks prior to the wedding was to pay them and let them know when they could deliver my beautiful cake!!

We were two weeks away from our wedding day and our "cake lady" backed out!!! We called Specialty Cakes and they were able to meet with us immediately. We were able to design the cake we wanted and with only two weeks notice! It was beautiful and we now use them for all our cake needs. They made a great graduation cake two years ago!
