Cake design is my passion. I love nothing more than to transform a cake or cheesecake into something remarkable.
My philosphy is that the cake is truly the centerpiece of the reception and I love designing a cake that is perfect for every unique couple.

I have been decorating cakes for over 17 years, I opened Tamara’s in 1997. I love what I do, and am truly blessed to be doing this. I have done literally thousands of wedding cakes, and yet am excited to see each and every one from conception to the moment it is in place at the reception.

I am undeafeted in the Wisconsin Baker’s Association Extreme Wedding cake challenge, and have won many other awards throughout the years. I love competing just in that it challenges me to go above my comfort zone, to try and learn new things, and truly perfect this art form.

My flavor palette includes everything from over 30 traditional cake flavors, fillings, cheesecakes and cheesecake tortes. I have different icings, and something to fit everyone’s palette. Read less

We went with cupcakes for our guests and a small cake to cut. Our color was purple and by the time we arrive the cut our cake, the ribbon looked more black than purple. They also never left us a box for our cake so that presented a challenge at the end of the night. The cupcakes were delicious and we received many compliments on but they need to give a cake box and provide a better way to transport the cupcake stands (i.e. a laundry basket to place a bunch of glass stands with no cushion isn't ideal).

The cake at Tamara's is delicious! It doesn't taste like the fake sugary cupcakes that you buy from the store and get at a lot of bakeries. The prices are so reasonable for what you are getting and the staff also did an amazing job decorating our wedding cake and cupcakes. The provided a wood stand that matched our theme and they did a wonderful job setting up the display after delivering from Oshkosh to Green Bay. We were so happy with how it turned out!

We loved how easy it was to work with Tamara. We came in with a pretty work intensive idea of what we wanted for our wedding cake. She jumped on the opportunity and assured us it would be no problem. She was very flexible when we decided to switch from late night cupcakes to late night dessert bars.

Our cake was gorgeous. My husband and I walked in and my jaw dropped. I couldn't believe how great it looked and even better was how amazing it tasted. We both got many complements throughout the night about the cake, both how it looked and how it tasted. The bars for the late night snack were also amazing.

The only problem was there was a miscommunication between Tamaras and the venue on when the cake was supposed to be delivered. It ended up being delivered after the start of cocktail hour, so many of my guests walked into the venue with an empty cake table.

It has been three months since our wedding and people are still talking about our cupcakes. I think more people posted pictures of our cupcakes than they did of us (okay, slightly dramatic... But I'm sure it was close!) they were absolutely amazing to look at and even more amazing to indulge in. Not only are their cupcakes (and their cakes) very good, but we were highly satisfied with their organization, professionalism, and ease of communication.

Their cakes and cupcakes are delicious, but they are difficult to deal with. I had to continually follow-up to be sure my contract and payments were received, my flavors were correct, my design would be as I wanted it, and the delivery details. In the end the design cake design looked nice but had minor flaws, which is disappointing when you spend the time and money to have it exactly as you want.

The cupcakes we received from the Cake Guru were beautiful and delicious. We received many compliments on both the look as well as the taste, and many people specifically asked where they had come from. We did have some issues in meeting with the representative at the Appleton store, as he was not very detailed, did not give us a copy of our contract, and did not review some of the important components of the contract language with us. He also seemed to act as though he had never met us before when we came back into the store to return the plates, despite the fact that he took our order. However, anytime we emailed Tamara directly, the responses were extremely prompt and thorough. Overall, a good value and an excellent addition to our wedding reception.

I have Celiac Disease so we went with Tamara's so we could have a gluten free wedding cake. Went into the shop and sat down with one of the workers. Discussed that we needed 100 servings, gluten free, handed Tamara our swatches for our floral colors and that our wedding was in Winneconne. By the time we left there we had everything picked out except for flavors and floral design. We had exact serving number (100), frosting type, cake style and it to be Gluten Free. Was told by Tamara herself that the floral design would be free/included in the price of the cake. I paid our $100 deposit and left with our contract in hand and quoted at a price of $275. Emailed to find out when would be a good time to bring in my final payment and to drop off my cake topper. I was told "any time we are open". Went to the shop and informed the lady behind the counter that I was there to make the final payment for our wedding cake. I handed her the $175, cake topper and my copy of the contract, Which she read in front me of. She gave me back my contract and the receipt. In the meantime 2 weeks go by I email to set up a delivery time for our cake to be delivered. I receive and email back saying that there is still a balance on the wedding cake. Tamara then called me herself. She had said that I never gave an exact number of servings, never said it was to be gluten free, due to the frosting we chose the floral decoration was no longer free/included and I wasn't charged for delivery. All of which were discussed at our first initial visit with her specifically. So I was charged another $75. At this point my $275 is not refundable. so here I am stuck paying another $75 dollars. I'm really frustrated at this point because I know 110% that this was all discussed and when I made my final payment this $75 was never mentioned. When cake was delivered there were finger prints deep into the cake and the flowers were wrong and falling off. I will never purchase another cake from there.
