Really cute cake and cupcakes. I was so happy to find a bakery in Chicago that provided dairy-free options. We ordered a round cutting cake and mini cupcakes for our guests. My only complaint is that the cupcakes were dropped off at the venue and not assembled on the display tray, we ended up having to do it ourselves.

Imagine my surprise to find out the maker of wonderful gluten and dairy free cupcakes also makes cakes! I used Swirlz for both my shower and a complement for my wedding cake. The red velvet was a huge hit at the wedding shower. For the wedding, we had a main cake, and this was great to have next to it for my husband and I to cut, and me to enjoy. The tasting was a disappointment as the flavors I wanted to taste weren't in the store, and two of the three tasting flavors were cupcakes I'd previously bought at Whole Foods. The cake itself is very expensive for a cake. It's something that was great for special occasions but not something I'd splurge on for a birthday party. For the wedding day, it was great to have the delivery option.

Using Swirlz Cupcakes as an alternative to a traditional wedding cake was the best decision I ever made!! Swirlz was very accommodating and patient during the entire process, making all my visions come true! The gluten free cupcakes were delicious, and everyone raved about them during and after the wedding. We also got a 6 inch cutting cake for the standard pictures and cake cutting tradition, so that was a nice touch as well. LOVE LOVE LOVE SWIRLZ!

Perfect choice for our wedding where important members of the family needed Gluten Free cake. Everything looked wonderful and tasted great. Wonderfully identified in the boxes so we could keep the vegan and gluten free cakes separate and identified for the guests. Thanks Swirlz.

Instead of a cake, we decided to go with mini cupcakes from Swirlz. I'm so happy with this decision!! They were so fun to work with and so many people commented on how awesome the cupcakes were.

We did a couple of tastings to make sure that we got the exact flavors we wanted, and they even allowed us to design the exact cupcakes that my husband and I wanted to make for ourselves. Jamie and the rest of the Swirlz staff were truly a joy to work with - I would 100% make this same decision if we did it again.

We did all mini's for the guests and chose to go with 600 because there's a price break there. We ended up having just over 150 guests, and this was clearly too many. Although, my colleagues were happy to eat the leftovers, we could have definitely cut it back to 450ish.

Great flavor selection! They even helped us make our own custom flavors and catered nicely to those with allerigies/vegans. Had to return the rented cupcake stand within 24 hours which was a bit of a pain, but other than that, smooth sailing!

Swirlz worked closely with us on quantity and flavors. They delivered on time and were delicious. They were not able to make sugar flowers for a topper, so the work of making the display look wedding-like fell to us. Big portion sizes. Everyone was full from one.

Swirlz catered cupcakes at our wedding reception. We did three hundred mini cupcakes and found them to be the best value. Swirlz large cupcakes are relatively expensive. The taste of the cupcakes was at the top of the other bakeries we visited.

We had no problems with delivery, ordering, or payment. They worked very well with our caterer to deliver and display the cupcakes. We were very happy Swirlz and highly recommend them.
