My husband and I must've tasted about 9 pieces of cake when trying to decide on a cake vendor for our wedding. The West Side Bakery far exceeded any of the others. I personally am not a fan of cake, but I ate 4 or 5 pieces of our almond cake with strawberry filling at the reception! Not only was it delicious, it was also beautiful!

The West Side Bakery made a beautiful wedding cake for our wedding. The cake tasting was top-notch; they provided four huge, decorated samples to try for free. My groom and I went with a 4-tier cake with 2 tiers of almond cake with raspberry filling and 2 tiers of chocolate with chocolate ganache filling. It was incredibly delicious. There were guests asking my mother where the cake was purchased! The decorators really took my rather loose design idea and made it beautiful. I wasn't at the venue for the delivery, but the cake was sitting, in perfect condition, fully assembled, on the cake table when I arrived. Wonderful wedding cake!

I could not speak higher for the fantastic cake The West Side Bakery provided. The nearly naked chocolate cake with raspberry and hazelnut fillings was absolutely delicious and beautiful. Exactly what we hoped for and we received numerous positive comments from "cake haters." I would not hesitate in ordering anything from The West Side Bakery.

THis bakery was able to customize my cake the way I envisioned it. IT was lovely and the taste was on point. The guests were pleased with the quality of the cake. Lastly, I at the last minute, ordered a grooms cake in the shape of the Millennium Falcon. They did not blink and my groom was bowled over with delight at the sight of one of his favorite images in the form of a cake at his wedding. Kudos all around!

I had The West Side Bakery make a themed cake for my bridal shower that was at the Cleveland Zoo. It was absolutely perfect! I am so happy with how it turned out. I wish I could post a picture of it. Everyone loved the look of it. And it tasted great, too! She made a vegan cake for us (my fiancé and I are vegan) and a gluten free cake, too (lots of my family is gluten-free). I absolutely recommend The West Side Bakery. (They are making our wedding cake too, but I'll wait to post a review of that until after the wedding.)

This cake was the best we've every had!! The design was spot on to the last detail, as discussed in our initial meetings. They were easy to work with and prompt with their responses!

West Side Bakery provided us with the most beautiful cupcakes for my daughter's wedding. We ordered a dozen gluten free, and several dozen lemon cupcakes with flowers on top in the brides choice of colors. Then we placed them on little individual cupcake holders in the shape of a heart on the dessert table, and they were gorgeous. The frosting was so creamy it was like whipped cream.
I cannot attest to the flavor myself but others said they tasted great.
This was the simplest way to have cake at a wedding that I have even known. And cost under $3 per cupcake.

We had chosen The West Side Bakery based on reviews on the wedding websites, as well as "best of" city awards. It is no wonder that this bakery gets such high marks and so many awards. First, during the planning process, Barb and her staff were fantastic to work with, very polite, professional, knowledgeable people who strive to give you what you want, but able to offer up recommendations based on their expertise. We did a dessert table with cupcakes and assorted pastries, and this was a huge hit with everyone at our wedding. When we had gone in to the bakery for our cake tasting, we both said they were the best cupcakes we'd ever had (I'm vegan -- so I got to sample those...wow!). So, it was no surprise that by the end of our reception, there was not a crumb to be had. We ordered extras thinking there would be leftovers for people to take home, but our guests ate EVERYTHING on that table!! My first piece of advice if you're reading this review is to use this bakery for your wedding cake/other baked goods, and my second is to order a whole lot of extra servings because they will go quickly!!
