When meeting with the bakery we had some problems as they did not have a time available to meet with us since we were going to be in from out of town (we don't live in Illinois, but that's where the wedding was located). They made me call 3 or 4 of their bakeries and I didn't have a choice of bakery since they have a contract with Mirage Banquets at Four Points Sheraton-O'Hare.

When they finally met with us, they were still not very nice, but we were able to work everything out. Our cake was delicious and beautiful -- exactly what we asked for. I was SO happy with it.

We brought a photo to our meeting, they had no problem matching the specific scroll design we wanted. The cake at the wedding was perfect, and tasted AMAZING. I had several people tell me it was the best wedding cake they have ever had and I agree! It was so good we didn't even save the top layer, we ate if ourselves the week after our wedding and plan to order a fresh cake from them on our anniversary. We did our deposit and final payment over the phone and had no problems. Great value, hundreds of dollars less than another extremely popular bakery in another town. Great value on delivery too considering our venue was almost an hour from the bakery. Their tasting cake and prices were way better and it was a no brainer. Highly recommend!

I ordered my wedding cake and sweets table through Sugar Hills Bakery a month ago, I heard so many great things from locals so I was very excited to say the least. They are professional, clean and organized. For my wedding I ordered a 4 tier beautiful cake I absolutely loved the design stunning, I just didn't care for the actual cake itself, I feel like for the amount of money I dropped (almost two-thousand) on everything it did not live up to its standard. I will always remember how beautiful it was though. & for the sweets table, that was great deserts were so delicious it went so fast at the wedding, only downfall was I was expecting a little more of a WOW factor, the plates were just laying out, nothing over the top like i was expecting. Great sweets, but a extremely expensive

The bakery has a few different selection of cakes and frostings and can do almost any design. We had an issue where we paid extra for a design on the cake and never got the design on the cake. But it tasted amazing!

After a very bad experience with The Baking Institute, our caterer, Biagio, told us that we could use Sugar Hills as part of our included wedding cake, and I'm SO SO SO glad that we did. It is a far drive from the city (although a location on Addison will be opening soon), but very much worth it. The tasting was in their bakery, and they immediately explained what our contract included. She had several books of pictures of base-level contract cakes, and then explained they could do more, and the different up charges. After looking through all of the pictures, I decided I still wanted a cake with alternating blue and white tiers and a top layer covered in fondant dots (under $40 upcharge).

For the tasting, we didn't have to pick any flavors in advance. They brought us four pieces of cake, and then as many different types of filling as we wanted. We ended up doing a four tiered cake, two chocolate tiers and two vanilla tiers, both with chocolate and strawberry filling.

The cake was gorgeous at our wedding, and DELICIOUS! We had no issues with the delivery, and they will give us a new top layer on our one year anniversary for free. I'm so happy we went with Sugar Hills, and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

My reception venue used Sugar Hills Bakery for its cake package. While it's a little bit further out, it was definitely worth the drive. We went in for the tasting and was given a little bit of everything to try in little plastic cups. After tasting everything, we chose alternating layers of white and chocolate cake plus mango and chocolate buttercream. Their buttercream is fantastic - light and rich at the same time! The secret is that they use REAL butter, and not shortening or some other artificial binder. We also got to chose our cake design from a huge binder of different styles they were able to offer at no additional charge. You can also bring in a photo and they can replicate. So all those things make Sugar Hills Bakery wonderful, but the icing on the cake (pardon my pun) is that they made the top layer of the cake, per our request, gluten free. Very few bakeries are able to do this, but Sugar Hills Bakery executed this flawlessly. Also luckily for us, they have a non-wedding bakery in the northwest burbs which is much closer to us. We will be using them for our specialty baked goods from now on!
