West Side Bakery is a phenomenal bakery and I would highly recommend using them to make your wedding cake! They were so easy to work with, very professional, flexible with my busy schedule and took such good care of my husband and I from start to finish. Their cake is amazing and it tasted so, so, so good the day of our wedding. I LOVED the way our cake looked as well. We got so many compliments on how beautiful it was and how delicious it tasted. I can promise you will be just as happy and satisfied if you choose them too!

We had ordered our cake after taking a few tastings.. my favorite was the Pink Lemonade Cake which was filled with Lemon Curd and topped with an American Butter-cream.. we also had a few layers of Spice Cake, which was delicious. It was a lovely cake, a bit on the pricey side, but was worth it.

My birthday is in December and I got married in January. My husband was so impressed after the cake tasting for our wedding that he got my birthday cake there too. Our cake was beautiful, but most importantly it was delicious! Westside was very accommodating in arranging the cake pick up - the retail store is closed in January when we got married, but pick up was a easy and the communication was great.

The wedding cake from West Side Bakery was the best. We received so many compliments. They are a little pricey, but well worth it. If you love great icing...you need to have West Side Bakery do you cake.

I found the west side bakery to be delightful! I found a picture online if the cake I wanted (small, 3 tier white cake with bunting and pinwheels) for my carnival themed wedding and they duplicated it TO A TEE. The price was very reasonable and the cake tasted SO GOOD. I had so many components on it!

West Side Bakery made our wedding cake, and I chose it because of it's good reputation. I was sorely disappointed and frustrated. My fiance and I initially went in and met with the owner to discuss options and pricing. We were very clear on wanting to stay within a reasonable (low) budget, and she gave us an estimated price and said it was doable. Months went by, and they never contacted us. We finally contacted them and set up an appointment to finalize the cake. I went in with my mom and she kept us waiting and then reprimanded us for waiting, telling me "most brides have their cake finalized by this point" and she "thought of calling me" but didn't, obviously. We explained to her what we were thinking and the price had jumped WAY higher without any explanation on her part. At this point we were desperate and had kitchen cakes made to help with the cost. If we had time we would have gone elsewhere. My mom kept trying to call in and the owner was always busy and could not be disturbed--as my mom put it, "quite the queen there." I tried so hard to keep to budget while wedding planning, and the unexpected cake total totally blew it. The owner was very hard to work with and belittling. In the end, the cake did NOT fit what I had described to her--and after paying so much! I was so mad I tried to put it from my mind during the wedding and not fixate on it. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. Go elsewhere if you don't want to be taken advantage of. I know they have good reviews, but trust me. I've been there. The WORST wedding vendor by FAR.

We highly recommend West Side Bakery for any wedding, shower, or other function! Not only is the quality of their work amazing, but the cake itself is delicious as well! They offered a tasting that helped in our selection of flavors for the cake. I simply showed them a picture of what I wanted it to look like and they replicated it perfectly. We heard from multiple guests that they thoroughly enjoyed the wedding cake. We order a three tiered cake and 3 pies for our wedding. Delivery was on time and we have 0 complainants.
