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!!

We loved working with The West Side Bakery for our wedding! Our cake was beautiful and DELICIOUS! We were excited that they were so willing to give us our "vision" of a wine themed cake! We were able to take ideas from a couple different cake examples and create something unique!

West Side Bakery also has so many different flavor choices, which is awesome! My husband and I had a great time mixing and matching different cake and filling flavors!

Thanks West Side Bakery!

Delicious cakes! We ordered a variety of flavors and they were very accommodating of our requests. Lisa was very nice to work with, very professional and helped us choose a design that was perfect for our cakes. Samples were plentiful and many albums with designs were readily available. The frosting, in particular, was perfect.

We ordered a small cutting cake from West Side Bakery to cut during the reception (as we had alternate desserts to serve everyone). The cake was beautifully decorated in our colors, and absolutely delicious. It did not taste at all like a generic "wedding cake" but was moist and flavorful. We got marble cake with vanilla buttercream.

I was so impressed with West Side Bakery. Their service was incredible, and their cake was even better. I have been to soooo many weddings where the cake just sits there, no one eats it, and it's a big waste. At our wedding, everyone ate it, and people were even asking for seconds! Not to mention, it was absolutely beautiful too! I will continue to go to them for other smaller occasions in the future, but would absolutely recommend them to any bride.

The Lena with white cake & raspberry filling was AMAZING!! Not only did this cake look stunning but it also tasted great! I highly recommend this vendor! I had two appointments with them and they used my concerns by talking me through the process. They had the cake at the venue on time. They displayed the cake exactly as we asked. They were professional, friendly, & attentive! We will certainly be using them again in the future for other celebrations!!
