Our cake was beautiful. We also had some sheet cakes made, which gave us the opportunity to have three different flavors and OMG! They were amazing. I still dream of the carrot cake, the vanilla with raspberry and cream cheese filling and wish I had some now. Everything came out as promised and the cake looked so much like the sketches only better. Lonielle is wonderful to work with. We had a small wedding and it was a two tier cake with two sheet cakes. Lonielle worked within our budget and did a beautiful job. Definitely will work with her again if I can.

For the tasting she created great parings of cake and fillings to choose from, and while we decided on a simple design with fresh flowers for our wedding cake Lonielle created a beautiful piece of art from it that tasted awesome!

Our wedding was planned in about 6 weeks time! Met with Loinelle at the Cakery and immediately felt at ease and comfortable with sharing my ideas of what I wanted our cake to look like. BTW ... This was a same sex wedding so no bride and groom topper! She showed excitement with our idea and began to draw a picture of what the cake would look like. Then she presented several samples of cake flavors for us to taste ...OMG ... so hard to choose as everything was amazing. All fresh ingredients, the cake, the fillings, the icings all fresh made. We selected both a carrot cake and chocolate with raspberry filling. All the flowers were hand made and platinum colored. The day of the wedding the cake was delivered on time and was stunning! We rented from The Cakery a silver base for the cake to sit on which only added to it's beauty. The design of the cake was everything we discussed and more. It was fresh and moist and our chosen flavors were amazing. So many compliments from our guests, some even had both flavors. I loved the carrot cake but the chocolate raspberry was by far my favorite! And Loinelle, she was delightful to work with, listened to my ideas and followed through to make it happen.

Not only was our cake beautiful (and EXACTLY like the picture I showed Lonielle) but it was DELICIOUS!! We cleaned the sample plate at the cake tasting and were so excited to eat the left over cake packed away for breakfast the morning after our wedding. We tasted with another popular cake vendor after we tasted with The Cakery and there was no competition in terms of artistry and taste. If Lonielle is available to make your cake you should absolutely snatch her up!

She was a pleasure to work with and I recommend the Cakery highly enough!!! If you need a cake in the SLO area look no farther!!!

Delicious cake! So happy with the outcome! Made it just like I wanted (I brought a photo). Plus, they grow their own carrots that go into the carrot cake! They also use top name brand ingredients and it does make all the difference. Everything was delivered without a hitch! Highly recommended.

I still cant get over how perfect my cake was. The entire night i kept telling people "Have you seen my cake???!!!" It was absolutely stunning and the vendor was flawless. They called me the week of just to sort out any last minute details and the whole transaction went flawlessly!!! The cake was delicious, looked beautiful, and absolutely no worries or snags in the whole process. I had my coordinators leave my topper on the cake stand and The Cakery set it all up when they dropped the cake off. I can't speak any more highly about The Cakery. It's really too bad my caters dropped the ball and didn't serve it because i had most of the cake leftover.(People ate it at the Sunday brunch luckily) Shame on Trumpet Vine because it was a gorgeous and delicious cake. Thank you The Cakery for making my wedding cake perfect!

The Cakery is, hands-down, the best wedding cake vendor in Central California. We did a lot of tastings before we met with Linda and Yarrow, and nobody came even close to being as perfect as them. First of all, their tasting room is in the gorgeous, oak-draped hills of Templeton. You sit in a dainty room with views of rolling farmlands with some tea and beautiful books of stunning cakes. And then you taste. Let me just say that you will not feel rushed, you will not feel upsold, you will not feel hurried or pressured in any way. You know why? Because they know that they have a stellar product and it's up to you to make your own decision. We loved working with the Cakery SO MUCH. Our cake was beyond beautiful, more than we ever could have imagined, and it remains the best-tasting, most rich and moist desert my husband and I have ever had. We cannot recommend them enough. They are artists. Professional, calming, talented artists. Plus, their prices are absolutely in line with other, much lower-rated bakeries in the area. Book them early, you will NOT regret it.

Incredible cake & cupcakes! We had so much fun doing cupcake tasting, and ended up picking 4 different varieties, all of which were amazing. Our guests could not stop raving about them. The Cakery is well known in the area as one of the better places for wedding cakes/cupcakes, and after hiring them, we cannot disagree with that at all, it certainly lived up to its reputation!

I did a lot of research online for bakeries in the Central Coast area and The Cakery was the one I kept coming back to. My groom called to make an appointment for a tasting for him, myself and my mother. Though not hard to find, The Cakery is a little off the beaten path in Templeton in a little house on Dancing Deer Farm. When we first met with them, we didn't know exactly what we wanted, so we were able to flip through several photo books of cakes they had made in order to get a better idea of what we liked and what we didn't like. We decided on a three-tiered square cake, with a simple buttercream frosting. The hard part was picking the type of cake and fillings; they were all so delicious! In our complimentary tasting, Linda brought out all of their flavors and fillings. We selected the white cake with cream cheese and raspberry filling for one layer, devil's food with ganache and raspberry for another, and our top layer (yet to be eaten) is devil's food with Kahlua and Baileys buttercream. We wanted to do something custom on the top of the cake to reflect our personalities, so we talked to Linda about creating the squirrels from Ice Age out of fondant. She readily admitted it would be costly, and since we wouldn't get to keep them, it might be better if we could find someone to make them out of clay. We thought this was a great idea, so my husband's aunt created an amazing cake topper for us with the two squirrels sharing an acorn. However, they ended up being too large for the cake, so at the last minute, we talked to The Cakery about a groom's cake. They made a carrot cake (so yummy!) with cream cheese filling and wrapped it in fondant to look like an oak tree stump so the squirrels could sit on it. Both cakes had gorgeous fondant acorns and oak leaves cascading down. And the buttercream on our main cake was so smooth it looked like fondant. Cake is usually hit or miss at weddings...ours was a huge hit. Both cakes were so moist and the flavors were unbelievable. I have never had cake look and taste this good. And the price was great, too! Now I just need an excuse to order another one! If you want the best cake ever, go see Yarrow and Linda at The Cakery. ~Meredith & Jesse

Linda was great to work with. She was extremely professional and it was obvious that she could do just about anything that we threw at her. After pouring over photos, designs and ideas, she did a great job creating our vision. The cake was very very good too. We came back from the honeymoon and ate it with every meal for a week. So good! Flawless experience. Thanks!

Then Yarrow did an amazing job of putting it all together. The taste was so incredible that not a single slice was left over!! If I ever am in need of a custom cake in the SLO County area again, they will be my first call.

The Cakery did the most beautiful, perfect job on my parents' anniversary cake! It was exactly as we had discussed when we ordered it and it tasted wonderful! The cake had all the elements we asked for; everyone was just blown away! I was so pleased with how they incorporated our theme of "the beach at sunset" using blue tones of water and pinks & oranges of the sky. They used some of our fresh flowers and made sea shells; everything tied together so well!

We interviewed 5 local cake vendors for our cakes and The Cakery was head and shoulders the most professional and impressive from the start. Not only were the cakes delicious, but the designs were GORGEOUS!! I found a lot of vendors who had one, but not the other. They had both! They executed my vision perfectly and created the most gorgeous wedding cake I have EVER seen. My venue changed to Santa Barbara and they even accomodated the extra delivery after the deposit was down. I can't wait for out one year anniversary to cut in to our Carrot Cake topper......the chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and hazelnut buttercream was also a BIG hit!! Thank You! Thank You!

The Cakery made the most delicious wedding cake we could have wished for. They provided a high level of professionalism from beginning to end and we always felt that we were in good hands. The greatest challenge we encountered was deciding on flavors...we ended up going with three different combinations on each tier: carrot/cream cheese, chocolate/hazelnut, and vanilla/raspberry, and were most pleased with our decision to do so. I would recommend going for a tasting at the bakery as this should assist anyone with making this very easy decision. And definitely go with the buttercream frosting as it is wonderfully tasty (fondant may look elegant, but there is truly no way for the most talented of pastry chefs to make it taste very nice). We found that The Cakery delivered on great taste, artistry, and assistance!

Hands down the best cake ever! We had white cake with fresh strawberries, chocolate with hazelnut cream filling, and cheesecake! Everyone loved it!! We got a cake for 150 people (since our wedding was 152) and we only took home six pieces of leftover cake... everyone had at least one piece! We went into the Cakery about 6 months before the wedding and did a cake tasting... then ordered the cake. It was the easiest part of the whole wedding planning!

We've had our fair share of wedding cakes in our lives and our cake from The Cakery was hands down THE BEST wedding cake every. All of our guests agreed with us that it was phenomenal. Our design was not conventional, we went with a mad hatter themed cake and it was executed perfectly. It had the class we wanted but the spunk that described us, it was gorgeous!

We saved the top tier and every month anniversary we will be cutting a sliver to celebrate. I can not wait for our 1 month anniversary to have a piece!

My wedding cake was BEAUTIFUL! I decided to go with the Cakery after my chef recommended them.  Out of all my wedding vendor appointments, this was by far my favorite.
They had a great variety to choose from.  Definitely not your average choices.  After tasting the many different selections, we decided to go with 2 different flavors:  white cake with a raspberry marmalade and salted caramel buttercream, as well as devil's food cake with 
the white cake with raspberry marmalade and salted caramel cream filling was a play on peanut butter and jelly.  Since it was so different and tasted exactly like it, we thought it would be perfect for us and our guests.  The devil's food cake was the other choice for obvious reasons: we wanted to cater to chocolate lovers!
As far as the artistry on the cake, we chose one of their designs that was classic. We chose the Dogwoods cake.   It is featured in their cake gallery online.  It is simply beautiful! 3 layers of off-white buttercream frosting, with cascading peach-colored handcrafted flowers and blue berries.  It was so pretty!  When I walked into my venue, they showcased the wedding cake in the center of the dance floor for all to admire as they walked to their seats.  I also paid for lighting, with a pinspot on the cake which added a dramatic spotlight.  It was so worth it.
I had a gelato bar so everyone was able to enjoy their cake with "ice cream"! It was perfect and everything I had hoped for.  Thank you, The Cakery, for a deliciously beautiful work of art!

Little did we know we were about to get married on the hottest day Pismo Beach has seen in years. The Cakery kindly called me a couple of days prior and asked if I wanted to change from butter cream to fondant. They were concerned that the butter cream wasn't going to hold up if set outside at our reception, for a long period of time. I truly appreciated that phone call because that would have been the last thing I would have thought about! Our cake was absolutely beautiful and very scrumptious! They use real butter and the freshest ingredients...GREAT QUALITY CAKE!

Well for starters I Love them, that is why I went there for my cake. They were very accomidating to all my requests. And brides here is what they did for me that is very smart, I asked for a faux layer. I only had enough guests to mandate a 2 layer cake but I wanted a 3 layer, so they were kind to decorate a thrid faux layer (styrofoam) for me to get the height and look I wanted. For any of you wanting more height but dont really need it this is smart. My cake was very yummy and very very pretty. Exactly what I ordered.

Lonielle is a true culinary artist... she's also responsive and intuitive and an absolute pleasure to work with. Our wedding cake was absolutely delicious (we would HIGHLY recommend her devils food/raspberry/cream cheese combo) and stunning to look at as well. She went out of her way to match our wedding colors perfectly and gave us a gorgeous, delicious cake that served as a perfect end to a perfect evening.
Lonielle - thanks for helping make our special day so amazing!!

We had a really great experience here at The Cakery. The owner is amazing, artistically and as a chef. She had the perfect amount of flavors to taste. She is also available via email with any concerns or questions, but at one point too longer to respond, but had followed up with a phone call. She also had options to lower our total cost. They delivered on time as well. I definitely recommend this vendor for a wedding in the Central Coast, Ca.

Our cake was SO FREAKING DELICIOUS. Other people talk about how wedding cakes aren't even that good, they're too dry, blah blah blah. Ours was SO GOOD. Not at all dry or bland. Just delicious and delicious through and through. Yeah, it also turned out REALLY pretty and just what we wanted but that matters less than how much of it I wanted to eat all at once. I wanted to eat ALL OF IT.

Another thing is that by some minor confusion, when we planned our tasting they forgot to write it down or something. So we got there and they were totally unprepared. Rather than having to reschedule they apologized for the mix up, whipped up some fresh cake samples, and helped us. It was a very professional response to a small mistake, which I think is a great thing. The sampling was one of my favorite parts of wedding planning! Each sample was so delicious that we could barely decide on which flavors and combinations we wanted. My husband and I left with a total sugar high!! (And the tasting was free!)

Their website and some of their cake pictures look really traditional or... not my style. But it turned out that they had so many options and were such great cake makers that they made a beautiful cake that I loved that wasn't too traditional or too old looking. It was modern, fresh, and pretty. Just what I wanted.

And did I mention delicious? (Stay tuned for whether it not it still tastes good after being in the freezer for a year.)

We had a cupcake tower of three flavors with a small cut cake on top. Fabulous cake! We had the most compliments ever! Carrot cake, white with raspberry, and chocolate. They make their cupcakes from a sheet cake and have a biscuit cutter so the whole thing is moist. I don't know their secret ingredients but it is hands down the best most moist cake I have ever had.

They are kind of hard to get ahold of due to hours. But they do call you back in a timely manner.

Our wedding cake turned out really nice. I was concerned that it may be too plain looking since we didn't request anything too fancy, but somehow just with the ribbon, and flowers Linda was able to create a really beautifual cake. I was so excited when I first saw it walking into the reception. It looked so perfect that some of the guests asked if it was fake! Linda was great to work with, very patient at our consultation (all the cake choices were so tasty it was hard to pick!), and responsive with all of my questions leading up to the wedding.

I worked with Yarrow, the owner, in designing my wedding cake. I had made an appointment in advance which had somehow slipped through the cracks. Despite that minor slip up, Yarrow was a true pleasure to work with. Both I and my fiancée tried all of the different flavors of cake and had trouble deciding between two. Yarrow suggested we get them both since we were getting a three tier cake -- problem solved! I also showed Yarrow a photo of my dress and described that I wanted it to have a sort of vintage yet classic fell. Yarrow quickly sketched out a beautiful cake that combined my desire for a classic yet vintage looking cake but also fit our beach location. We were thrilled with how the cake looked but it also tasted INCREDIBLE! Out guests couldn't stop raving how much they loved the cake. Be warned pricing for wedding cakes is much more than you'd expect but The Cakery's pricing is inline with what other bakeries in the area are charging. I honestly couldn't recommend them more enthusiastically.

The tasting process was wonderful. These cakes all made from scratch do taste wonderful. I was most excited for my wedding cake on our big day and I was a little disappointed. The design that was drawn and what I had created in my head was not exactly how it came out. It was a white fondant cake and was to be dusted with shimmer. I thought the fondant would show the shimmer more and it did not. I would have loved a colored fondant so the shimmer showed up better (since no one eats this part). I also had florist leave fresh flowers to accent cake and topper, I felt these could have been placed more uniformally, it looked a bit rushed. My fault for not asking more questions, it's hard to go off a drawing and then not seeing your cake until you walk in the reception.

They made me a beautiful three tiered, white fondant cake. It was decorated with strawberries and 3D white fondant butterflies. I loved it and it tasted wonderful! Two layers were chocolate (top and bottom) and one was raspberry. They helped me sketch out what I wanted for my cake and they truly brought that sketch to life. They were wonderful and I highly recommend them!

**Update (07/21/08)** For our first year anniversary, we had The Cakery recreate the top layer of our wedding cake. It was marvelous! It brought back so many fond and happy memories. The Cakery did a fabulous job both times. :)

My husband and I wanted a more "fun" cake for our wedding and the gallery on The Cakery's website lead us to scheduling a tasting appointment with them. At the tasting we sampled the different flavors and they were all incredible. We also got to sit down and design the cake- something no other wedding cake maker had us do. Based on the taste and the design ability, we chose The Cakery and we didn't regret it! The guests loved the cake!

We had the Cakery make our Wedding cake for our special day. We planned a destination wedding, so never got to meet any of the staff but we did communicate on the phone and thru emails. They were very professional and compliant when I changed the style of the cake. We had no problems at all with the planning and on our day the cake seemed to magically appeared. It was so beautiful! Although, they don't have many flavor choices, what they do have was divine. We got so many compliments on how beautiful the cake looked and taste!

We used the cakery to make our two tiered wedding cake, plus our mini cupcakes. We showed up to the Cakery without a confirmed appointment, and we realized we actually caught them in the middle of trying to make some wedding cakes, but they took at the time for us to a tasting and talk with us. Their designs looked amazing in their books, and once we tasted the cake we knew we wanted to use them. Their frosting wasn't oversweet, and we were able to add Amarettto (one of our favorites) to one of the cakes, and the sea salt caramel on devils food chocolate was AMAZING! People raved at our wedding about the cupcakes. We were very happy.

I am overall, very happy with how our wedding cake turned out. I have 2 complaints, though. One is that I felt like every single time I called The Cakery, they were either closed or not in. I understand that there are days that they were delivering cakes or what not, but I wish that they had given me at least one more way to get in touch with someone working there, even if it was just an email address. The other thing that really frustrated me is that when I first saw my cake on the wedding day, I noticed that they didn't bring the fondant out the the very edge of the foil lined platter that it came on. I think I specified at LEAST three times, how much I DIDNT want the foil to show and how I wanted them to bring the fondant out the edge. It really brought the whole look of the cake down for me and I was so bummed because the rest of it looked GORGEOUS. Such a small detail that really made such a big difference for the overall look. I am an artist, a visual person and it really bothered me. The cake tasted great though. I just wish that they would have paid more attention to such an easy request. Overall though, the cake tasted great, it was gorgeous in every other way, and it was delivered on time.

The cakery makes all sorts of specialty cakes, but for some reason I couldn't use some of the specialty cake flavors on my wedding cake - I understood that some didn't stand up as multilayer cakes, but I had plenty of sheet cakes with all my guests. The flavor of the cake I did get - chocolate, ganache, hazelnut something or another) got rave reviews! They were very easy to work with and had my cake deliverd in plenty of time.

Our wedding cake was an absolutely vision in simplistic purple ombré. It definitely met our needs visually wise but was a bit lack-luster on taste compared to what we tried during our cake tasting. Our buttercream frosting tasted more like butter and less like frosting and our salt caramel filling lacked any flavor however the cake was wonderfully moist and decorated beautifully.

Additionally we ordered carrot cake bites which were fabulous and brought me back to the dessert table for repeat visits. We also ordered three different types of cookie, snicker doodles, chocolate chip and peanut butter all of which were a bit firm but wonderfully flavored.

Overall I was impressed with the design and small touches but just wish the frosting and filling had the beautiful butter, salt and sugar balance we tried during our tasting.

The Cakery had a very nice tasting demonstration and they suggested which fillings would go best with which cake flavors (that was more than some other vendors). They were extremely nice and flexible with design options. They stayed in touch and returned phone calls. The day of, people commented on how beautiful and perfect our cake looked. We chose a 3 tier smooth white fondant with sugar Cherry blossom accents. We originally didn't want fondant, only butter cream but they said that the fondant would preserve the cake better, especially if it was a hot day.
We were very pleased with their service overall. The only tiny hassle was having to return the cake stand we rented the next day.

Cakery was amazing. Our cake and cake bites were absolutely delicious and we didn't have any leftover after the wedding. The unique filings and moist cake - there's nothing better. We knew upon the first bite of the cake testing, that this was the place! They use quality ingredients and you can tell my the taste and texture of the cakes. Do not hesitate to order from them. The cake is great!

I went cake tasting with a local friend, 6 months before my destination wedding in Pismo beach, CA. Tasting the cake at The Cakery was an experience in itself, and I knew right away that I had found the most delicious cake. My next hope was to determine if this venue was up to the task of re-creating the cake of my dreams from a photograph (A cake with bright Fuschia Fondant!). Additionally, I had an out-of-the-ordinary request to include script in Malayalam in icing, on my cake (the native language of my India-born husband). I was reassured that this was well within the talents of the staff at the Cakery.
On my wedding day, the cake was as moist and delicious as I had remembered it to be from the tasting- my guests are still talking about it! My in-laws were surprised and delighted with the Malayalam words in icing, and enjoyed "interpreting" the cake for our guests (the words, "forever", "love", and "destiny" were written). My only disappointment was the fondant: The Bright fuchsia color was paramount to the look of our reception/colors, and the Cakery really missed on this one, covering the cake instead with a muted, frosty, mauve fondant reminiscent of an elderly lady's lipstick. So "off" was this color from the photograph I provided (and re-emailed) that I half expected a note of apology with an offer for a partial refund. Even the coordinator at SeaVenture knew I'd be disappointed, and insisted I have a look before walking into the reception, so I'd be "prepared".
Bottom line: as long as you don't desire a Bright Fuchsia cake, The Cakery can create a cake that is both beautiful and delicious!

The Cakery makes cake that is beyond delicious. I could have eaten just this instead of the meal and been a very happy lady.

We ordered a 3-tier devils food cake with chocolate ganache filling and fondant topping/design, yellow cake cupcakes with lemon curd topping and cream cheese frosting, and devils food cake cupcakes with ganache topping and cream cheese frosting. The cakes were so moist, flavorful, and tender. We had a little difficulty cutting through the fondant during the cake cutting ceremony but still tasted fab! My friends are still talking about how good the cake was.

We had a little difficulty coordinating the design remotely (we live ~150 miles from where we got married). After our initial visit and quote, we decided to change our plan. Initially, it was hard to time when I was available to call with when the appropriate staff were working (not all staff were qualified to take the order). Later, I discovered that the quote I was given was based on the original design rather than the new design (I had suspected this, though). It all worked out in the end, though, and definitely no reason to miss out on this amazing cake. I wish I could go back for more tasting sessions :)

The Cakery was very professional in their willingness to spend a lot of time going back and forth with us to plan our cake, which was a somewhat tedious. Although The Cakery was unable to work with us on the size of our dream wedding cake that we wished for (an oversized 5 tier round layer cake with fondant on a much larger scale than a typical 5 tier cake), they were up front with us about the product that would be produced in the end, so we really appreciated their honesty and respected their expertise on the product. In the end, the cake at our wedding was nice looking and our guests were pleased.

The guests had mixed reviews about my cake. Though some loved the whole cake, others were grossed out by the non-sweet buttercream that can be compared to a similar texture of hard Crisco (Can Crisco become this hard?). The same buttercream that was inside the layers tasted great-appealed to be like a frosting, with the accent of raspberry. The sponge like cake was just okay, not moist, not dry-comparable to those little spongecake rounds found by the strawberries in the produce section-they taste good but need a lot of doctoring of strawberries, glaze, and whip cream.

I did have some issues regarding the communication as well. I was speaking to a women for most of the duration in planning my cake and at the last week she seemed to vanish? Maybe she was fired? Or maybe she quit? Who knows but the owner e-mailed me back and asked all the detailed questions about the delivery again and nothing seemed to flow through right, which made me worry about the on-time delivery.

I believe for the little amount of detail of pipping on the cake and the simplicity of the ribbon on the bottom of 2 tiers (6" top and 9" bottom) the price was greatly higher than the quality.

The Cakery responded with the following comments:

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Our number one priority is for our couples to have the cake they dreamed about.
* It sounds like you are referring to fondant which was used on the outside of your cake. We only do this with the couple's prior agreement and understanding that if the cake is outside during the hotter summer months, a true Italian buttercream will begin to melt. Fondant protects the cake and allows the cake to be displayed in most outside situations. We ice the cake with buttercream first and place the fondant over that. We always expect the caterer to remove the fondant before serving and recommend this to the couple during consultations. It can be too sweet for most people's taste.
* We did have an employee who had to leave suddenly because of a family crisis. She had been with us for many years and it was a sad time for all of us.
* We know that choosing a design for your wedding cake can be a daunting task. For this reason we always schedule a full 90 minutes for every consultation and make every effort to understand what our couples want and provide hundreds of pictures to inspire them. At the end of the consultation, every couple leaves with a personalized drawing of their cake. As with most bakeries, our prices are based on servings and not design.
Thank you again for taking the time to submit a review and I hope this helps.

I was a bit taken back after contacting the Cakery with my order request. I had already confirmed a full dessert bar men with our caterer, and then my Mom requested we have a cake for photo and symbolic purposes. Although it was a smaller order than norm (still $240), it seemed like it was a burden for them. I was immediately told they couldn't deliver it to the vineyard the day of (no flexibility) and it had to be picked up by 2pm. This was a challenge for us since all guests were out of town and pictures were during that time. Luckily, our day of planner picked the cake up. It ended up being very pretty, excellent tasting, but I didn't feel we got the same level of professionalism/service as others may have with a larger order.

The Cakery responded with the following comments:

Erica, I sincerely wish we could have delivered your cake. I understand that the last thing a bride would want to do on her wedding day is to pick up her cake. We specialize in one of a kind cakes and deliver and set up each one. Whether they are large or small they are each an important part of a couple's special day and deserve the same amount of attention to detail. Unfortunately by the time you contacted us to do your cake we were completely booked for the day of your wedding and simply didn't have the staff to deliver another one. When this occurs we will often give the bride the option of having someone pick up the cake. Of course, it is completely your choice.

The Cakery has delicious cake, and a large portfolio of cakes to choose from. We selected a cake similar to something in their portfolio, and the cake designer we worked with did a great job of sketching out the cake and giving us various pricing options (if you don't already know, a great way to save money on you cake is to get a smaller wedding cake with a sheet cake on the side). The designer wasn't very personable, but the cake was great, and the designs were impressive.

On the day of our wedding the cake didn't arrive on schedule. Luckily for us, our wedding coordinator hid this fact from us most of the afternoon. Our coordinator called the phone contacts we had, but didn't hear anything for several hours. Finally, just before the ceremony was to start, The Cakery called to say that their car had broken down and that their cell phone battery died at the same time (sorry, but that sounds suspicious to me). Luckily, they did get another car, and delivered the cake just before the reception started.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I remember this day very well! In our business our delivery vehicles are so important and for this reason we have always insisted that they are newer and well maintained. Even with the most thorough precautions, however, belts can break or tires can pick up a nail. We did everything within our power to get your cake to your site before the reception began so your guests would never suspect a thing. Our policy has always been to deliver a cake 70 - 90 minutes before your guests arrive to allow for these kind of unexpected events and in this case, we are extremely happy we had this extra time.

They did a good job for us. Cake was delicious from what I hear, we were way to busy to eat any. In a few more days I get to eat the cake thats been in my freezer for a year. We went back to them after signing the contract and asked them to make the cake bigger. They added a fake layer that looked just as good as the real layers. I wanted a grander looking cake without having to spend anymore money or have tons of wasted cake. The cake did start to sink before we had planned to cut it, so we had the expedite the cake cutting. Im not sure if this is a common problem on a 3 tier cake, or why it happened.

I was fairly disappointed with our cake and the services provided.

It was a beautiful cake, however, there were some mistakes made. My cake arrived a half an hour later than we were told it would. Also, I had sent custom ribbons worth about $60 to be used in the bow on our cake, when the cake arrived it had the WRONG RIBBON on it... My mother was smart enough not to let me see it or interact with the cake lady. I was told that when the error was pointed out she got "snippy". My mother sent her to the store I had gotten my original ribbon from and she got new ribbon and replaced the blue and orange ribbon with black ribbon... I had sent a red ribbon to be paired with a stiff, lace black ribbon.

In the end the cake looked good, it just was not what THE BRIDE had envisioned, been promised, or payed for. She did what she could to fix the error, however I feel as though it was a large error considering I payed $600 for her services.
