When we went in, they were awesome. Sue helped us look through a BUNCH of different cakes, and she fed us free coffee and cake samples. De-lish! We ended up with peach schnapps and almond poppy seed as our layered flavors. Wow, so good. And folks at our wedding gushed over it. One thing mention is it got a little unclear as to when the cake would be getting dropped off at the venue--the window they gave was really large, maybe 4 hours--so that made the day-of a tad stressful. Nothing much, really, and it all worked out wonderfully!

The cake was absolutely beautiful. HOWEVER we ordered a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing and got what appeared to be an attempt at a red velvet cake. The cake was even brown, tasted more like chocolate cake. Even the guests were asking me if it was chocolate cake. Very disappointing because we were looking so forward to it. For the price we were very disappointed. The only piece I eat was the bite we took together. :( I highly recommend doing a taste test before ordering from this vendor..

The cake was delicious, and beautiful.
We loved the owner, she was funny and friendly. She did a great job helping us design the cake. She does great work without even having to use fondant, her icing tastes so good. She is very talented and did I mention that the cake tasted amazing? If you can go to Sequim for a cake tasting, I guarantee you will choose this business to do your wedding cake.

We truly loved our cake! That takes the cake was able to really capture what we were looking for. However, we ordered a sheet cake along with our 4 tier cake because we had many guests. We never received the sheet cake! Good thing we had enough to go around but it was still disappointing. I would recomend That takes the cake but make sure you have someone get in touch with them to make sure that they have all they need before they make it to your venue.

That Takes the Cake out of Sequim, WA was amazing! Sue was an absolute dream to work with and had vast amount of cake examples for me to look at. I found my dream cake and she made any changes necessary that I wanted. Not only did the cake look amazing at the wedding but it tasted so delicious. I was able to have 2 flavors and the guests were so happy with the choices and enjoyed the cake just as much as we did. I highly recommend for a dream looking cake and taste!

Sue did everything I wanted on my cake. It looked amazing and she did exactly what i envisioned. They only thing is i wish i would have tired exactly what i signed up to serve because i think that i had to many flavors going on and made it to rich. I should have had it a little simplier.

Sue operates this business out of her home, but is very experienced and does a beautiful job. She has many example cakes decorated when you go for a consultation, and does a good tasting with a wide variety of flavors. Her cakes taste good and she is great to work with. Her prices are unbeatable too. I would definitely recommend her.
