To us, cake isn't just a dessert. It's a symbol of celebration, happiness, friends and family. That's why we take so much care in creating the most splendid and delectable cakes and cupcakes....because we know what it means to you.

We're a small team, but we kind of like it that way. It allows us to make sure that each cake is handmade, hand decorated andbeautifully packaged. In fact, Oprah loved our key Lime Bundt Cake so much that she named it one of Oprah's favorite things! Soon after We Take The Cake appeared on three different Food Network shows (Challenge, Road Tasted and Unwrapped) and has since been featured in Entrepreneur Magazine, CNNmoney.com, The washington Post, Miami Herald and other magazines, newspapers and local television shows and radio.

We're quite proud of our achievements and strive to make sure we keep up the good work year after year as we continue to craft each cake by hand using only the finest, all-natural ingredients.

We ship anywhere in the continental United States. Our charming bakery is located in South Florida, and if you're in the area we would love to have you stop by and enjoy our creations fresh from the oven. Read less

I worked with Jean mainly via email and phone because I don't live in Florida. She was extremely professional and easy to work with. My parents met with her for tasting, and they chose the chocolate and vanilla cake. I did not try other flavors, but the chocolate and vanilla cake of my wedding was delicious. By far, the best cake I've ever had. Moreover, the design was beautiful and chic. I highly recommend them.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVED MY WEDDING CAKE!!! Okay, so right out the gate I would like to make it clear that I am not a cake fan and was indifferent about even having one. However, we went along with the idea since We Take the Cake (WTTC) was one out of three cake vendors pre-selected by my venue- the Weston Hills Country Club. After our first meeting with WTTC, my husband and I immediately knew they were the winner. The flavors were 'to die for' and the moist texture was spot on. In addition to the flavors, the aesthetics of my cake could not have been any more beautiful. Jean with WTTC took my sketch and transformed it into a masterpiece. She even included edible dragees and crystal ribbons. Jean also ensured efficient communication with quick responses to both emails and phone calls. My wedding cake left my guests craving more. In fact, the day after my wedding I got several calls from my guests asking if I had any leftovers (true story). The cake was so ridiculously good that my husband and I ended up devouring it the next week. To wait one full year to eat that cake would've been pure torture. I highly recommend this vendor!!!

This was hands down the best cake I've ever eaten in my 38 years of life. They fulfilled our request to have no fondant as we both think it tastes less than optimal. The cake was decorated simply and elegantly, despite the lack of fondant. Did I mention it was the best cake I've ever eaten? I literally called them the next day to thank them among all the other mayhem going on after the wedding just to say thanks. I will go there again when I'm back in Florida to eat some of their yummy goodness. I ordered the cake site "taste" unseen as I planned the whole wedding 1000 miles away. Don't hesitate to follow suit, whether you're in town or out of town!!!

Our cake was included in our venue package so I was nervous. After the cake tasting I realized that our cake was in great hands! I didn't want anything fancy on the outside but it was important for both of us to have a cake that we actually wanted to eat. Too many times wedding cakes look beautiful but are less than appetizing. Our wedding cake was exactly what I had envisioned on the outside AND delicious on the inside! In fact we couldn't decide on just one flavor so we ended up doing alternating tiers in two different flavors. We got so many compliments! We are even considering defrosting our top tier at 6 months because we just don't want to wait a whole year!

So Delicious We Finished Our Top Tier Already

Because our cake was included in our package through our reception venue, the most interaction we had with We Take the Cake was during our tasting. Jean was fantastic. She gave us several samples to go so that my husband could try them when he flew in that evening. She also gave us options on how to get a fondant look we wanted in a buttercream cake without additional charges, since our cake was already included. On our wedding day, we spoke with guests who were eating 2-3 slices of the cake because the red velvet flavour we chose was so delicious. The design was beautiful and exactly how we pictured. And although it's customary to save the top tier and enjoy it on your first year anniversary, we knew it was too good to wait that long and we finished it (save for a piece) that weekend with our family. It was that good!

AMAZING!!! I have always thought people were crazy for saving the top of their cake for the first anniversary, but we are almost to ours, and my husband and I BOTH can't wait to have some more. We ordered a lemon cake even though we thought for sure we would stay with traditional chocolate and/or vanilla. When we went to try we had already almost set out minds after trying the "regular" flavors *(even though there is nothing regular about their chocolate or vanilla- both out of this world!) but they said to just go ahead and try the others since they were free samples... SO glad we did! Everyone loved our cake, I would recommend them to anyone!

We Take the Cake is the best choice for wedding cakes for brides in South Florida. My wedding venue in Ft. Lauderdale Beach gave me the option of using them or Edda's Cake Design. When I visited We Take the Cake, Jean and her staff were very attentive and professional. Even though the hotel selections were slim, they took the time to customize my cake to my theme with no trouble and at little cost to me. They also helped to customize my husband's groom's cake. Both cakes looked and tasted phenomenal!! Our guests were in awe and very pleased with the taste! Their cake flavors, icings, and fillings are top-notch and very appealing to any palate (unless you don't like cake!). The other place's cake fell apart in my mouth and they wanted to charge upwards of $600 just to add an adornment around the base tier and a buttercream filling...and my mother and I waited 30 minutes before they could tell us that!

Point is, if you want a great cake(s) and professional, stellar service, go to We Take the Cake!! If there was anything that went right on my wedding day, it was having my cakes there on time, beautiful and tasty! I am very keen on good customer service, and I wouldn't write this review if it wasn't true. No matter what, go with We Take the Cake...they will not let you down!!

I ordered a cake for my daughters wedding. It was a very simple cake for 40 people. When the cake arrived it was lopsided/leaning and did not look finished. When the bakery was contacted they offered to come pick it up but it was an hour before the wedding so that was not an option. The cake itself was very heavy & lacked flavor. Definitely very unhappy and the owner was not willing to do much about the situation. Would not recommend them at all.

We tried every cake place in town and were so disappointed in cakes. My mom happened to have a frozen We Take the Cake from her birthday (a month prior) that we tasted, which was still delicious! So we tried out We Take the Cake and it was amazing! I even ordered myself a birthday cake from them before the wedding! The wedding day cake was delicious and communication with them was easy, even when we made a couple of changes about a month prior to the wedding!

I worked with Leah on our wedding cake. Our first appointment was a bust on her end as she allowed a late appointment to share ours, so I was pissed. She made up for it and invited us back for a private tasting. All the questions I asked her in our first appointment, were either not the right answer (because she was busy juggling both brides) or she brushed me off. In the end they upgraded us to fondant so I can have my crystal banding. The presentation was amazing and our guests LOVED how we offered 4 different flavors of cake. Very big of her to call herself out on her mistake and I respect that.

I recently had my wedding cake done by We take Cake. The cake was included in my wedding packages, however my husband and I opted to pay additional to rent a cake stand and have strawberries put in between the bottom layer of the cake. Our cake stand was beautiful. However, there were literally 3 sliced up strawberries for the whole bottom layer. On top of that, we had to be called to cut the cake halfway through our ceremony because it was about to fall over!!! Talk about an embarassement on what is supposed to be the best day of your life. When my husband returned the cake stand and asked them about the strawberries, they gave excuses. We were charged an extra $1 per slice for no strawberries (and they are in season!!!) No apologies were given for our leaning cake, or the lack of strawberries. No refund was given, not an apology- nothing. The lady didn't even care. Let me say I will never use this place or recommend this place to anyone. A great disappointment!!!!

After posting many reviews online, I finally got a call from a representative from the company... I was able to tell them how upset I was, give them a piece of mind and finally got the apology that I wanted. They also gave me a gift certificate for the amount spent for the strawberries which was nice, but unecessary because I got an apology.

We really didnt care so much about the cake, so went with a basic 3 tier soft frosted with red velvet, lemon, and vanilla/chocholate, and cream chesse frosting. It was unreal, my friends were trying to steal the cake from the guests that were dancing because it was so good. It was fun and easy to do the tasting and work with them, and they will even give you a cake to celebrate your 1 yr anniversary, so you can have the top all for yourself after the wedding! The ivory soft frosted looks a little yellow on the pictures with flash, but in real life looked perfect, off course my florist did an amazing job decorating it with flowers too, so the yellow didn't really matter much.

We Take The Cake was one of our venue package options, and I originally decided to go for a tasting because I remembered Oprah's past rave reviews. This cake was seriously the BEST cake I've ever had (and I try a lot of baked goods). We ultimately went with red velvet, and the accompanying cream cheese frosting was delicious.

A big thank you especially to Leah who dligently worked with us to make our cake design inspiration a reality!

Unfortunately we live too far away (in Boston) to visit regularly, but are already dreaming of our 1st anniversary cake. Thank you, We Take the Cake!

This cake was seriously the BEST cake I've ever had (and I try a lot of baked goods). We ultimately went with red velvet, and the accompanying cream cheese frosting was delicious.

A big thank you especially to Leah who dligently worked with us to make our cake design inspiration a reality!

Unfortunately we live too far away (in Boston) to visit regularly, but are already dreaming of our 1st anniversary cake. Thank you, We Take the Cake! Read less

One of the most delicious cakes I've ever tasted (not being partial I swear!). We Take The Cake made the most outrageous 3 tiered cake for our wedding. We got to have a tasting of all available cakes and even made each tier different flavors. Our guests went wild for the strawberry cake. Utterly amazing! They decorated it beautifully. We are so happy we went with them and will use them in the future for sure!

We just loved our cake from We take the cake. We got red velvet with cream cheese icing and it was so delicious and beautiful. It is rare that a cake is both beautiful and delicious! We received many compliments from our guests on our cake.

My cake from WTTC was beautiful AND delicious. The cake was moist and flavorful and their cream cheese frosting is to die for. I will be getting all of my special occasion cakes from them now. My younger brother took a slice back to school with him in Gainesville and his friends RAVED about it-so much so that when they came to South Florida to visit, I had to get them some. They are the only baker I would ever consider using.

Aside from being gorgeous, it was soooo delicious. Guests kept telling me it was the best cake they had ever had at a wedding. It was moist, flavorful and perfect! We had about 30 out of town guests over the day after the wedding and everyone kept talking about the cake and they ended up pulling out my cake topper and eating it!

They take pride in their work, produce a high quality product and they even give you a fresh cake top for your 1 year anniversary!

Delicious. If you love lemon flavor and cheesecake frosting you won't find a better wedding cake then "We Take the Cake". They have other great flavors but the lemon flavor is the one that my family fell in love with. Also everyone seemed to really enjoy it at the wedding, people were taking seconds!

We Take The Cake had some really amazing cakes to choose from. When were looking through the different designs and pictures, my husband and I were both in awe and were convinced that we were going to get our cake from them. Our guests must have had the same reaction when they saw the cake, because we got tons of compliments. It tasted awesome too!

We went to a few cake tastings and by far We Take the Cake was the most delicious! They were very professional and easy to work with. They had many options to choose from and we were able to find the cake that was perfect for us. We received so many compliments from our wedding guests that they loved the cake too!

DELICIOUS! The cake looked and tasted phenomenal. There was never a rush to design the cake and we were never forced to stick with one concept. They welcomed all our ideas and tested some of our designs right there and then to help us better evaluate it. In the end, we came up with our perfect cake!

We picked We Take the Cake because it was "included" in with our reception contract. When I called the first time, I didn't get a call back for over a week, I called again - the times were very limited and I had to leave work early to make the appointment that was available since they do not have any evening appointments. During our tasting, we felt like we were being pushed into a flavor that we didn't really want and I almost started to second guess my decision. When we decided on the cake design, I was a little unsure whether or not it would be exactly what we wanted, and the next appointment was also sitting about 2 feet away from me and I felt like our time to pick our wedding cake now included this stranger and I felt uncomfortable asking more questions. The cake design looked pretty at the wedding, it wasn't exactly what we wanted as far as the design was concerned and from what I remember it tasted good - so in the end all turned out well. We just would of liked a better experience picking it out.
