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

Jean Wilco and We Take the Cake were recommended by our venue, The Ritz-Carlton. Not only did we get a spectacular wedding cake from Jean, with ombre colouring, but -- at our request -- they also made a spectacular birthday cake for my mom to be presented during our wedding reception, since her birthday was only two days after our wedding. The cakes were amazing to look at and tasted even better than they looked. If you are looking for a baker that can create an absolutely stunning wedding cake, look no further.

Our cake was beautiful and extremely delicious. It was a little more pink then we wanted it to be, but still great.

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.

My cake was beautiful! We looked at some pictures I had saved in my phone and when we discussed the purple ombre cake, that was it. I tasted the wonderful flavors and knew the moment I tasted the lemon it was the one!!!!! The wedding cake was a huge success. Beautiful and I love looking at the pictures!

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!!!
