Hanic's Cake Shoppe
Angie at Hanic's Cake Shoppe made designing a cake effortless. My now husband and I had no idea of what we wanted, but we knew we wanted the cake to look classic and elegant. Angie was able to figure out just what we wanted, was flexible in the sizing as our guest's RSVP's came in thus staying within our budget, and was extremely patient with the many flavor changes that I put her through right up until about two weeks before the wedding. The cake tasted delicious and looked incredible. My husband and I are still getting compliments on it!
Hanic's Cake Shoppe made a beautiful and tasty cake.They are a true artist and able to create a masterpiece that is both beautiful and tastes incredible! All of our guests were amazed with the way our cake looked and also said it was the best cake they had ever tasted!They also have other great desserts as well!
We couldn't of been more pleased with our wedding cake or the services we received from Hanic's! Our cake tasted incredible and the design was beautiful, even better than we expected. I would recommend them to anyone!
125 cupcakes. She kept my 100$ cupcake stand deposit after I wrote a 3/5 star review on wedding wire. Working with Angie was a mistake in an otherwise wonderful wedding. The cake stand was not damaged. That is a lie. This is the full story.
Vendor response to review
Hello Lyndsay Germay,
We have already responded fully to this on www.weddingwire.com for any bride who would like the full story.
To the review, you damaged the stand you rented from us and have stated that you would post bad reviews unless we refunded your deposit, there is nothing we can do about you posting bad reviews except explain why you are posting them. Your contract clearly states that your deposit will not be refunded if the stand is damaged.

Angie is difficult to communicate with. She had trouble both understanding my needs and communicating her own. In the end my cake cost double what she had originally agreed to. The cake was excellent but in the end not worth all the trouble. This exchange was by far the worst associated with my wedding. In response to Hanic's comments: I paid nearly 600$ for 125 cupcakes and a 6 inch groom's cake with a $50 decorative dragon. I think that is a sufficient amount of money for some decoration. I didn't have a budget, and I don't see the $100 deposit on this detailing of my expenses. She never paid back the 100$ cupcake stand deposit...and it was not damaged, that is a complete lie (How exactly would one damage a cupcake stand anyway?). I also have correspondance from you asking what address I would like my refund sent to...Don't bother with this business unless you like getting robbed.

Our cake was gorgeous. Angie was very helpful in suggesting cake flavors becasue we only had one flavor we cared about, but we wanted our guests to be happy as well. Angie gave us an alternative idea to our cake for the same price, which ended up being a very nice cake with different flavors for eveyone to enjoy. Our guests enjoyed the cake very much and we couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Angie.
I was so happy with my cakes. I have never been a cake person and decided to do something a little different with fresh strawberries. Angie worked with all my ideas and requests. The cakes turned out more beautiful than I imagined and tasted amazing. All the guests were going up for seconds.
Our cake was beautiful and delicious; our only minor complaint would have been the somewhat limited variety of cake flavors/fillings available. We had hoped for one tier to be Italian Wedding Cake which was not available, and also hoped for one layer to have whole fruit filling which was also not available. We also thought we could sample more than one cake flavor but that wasn't the case, so we were slightly disappointed there. :(
Regardless, Angie did a phenomenal job recreating our cake from just one photo and using buttercream instead of fondant to save us money and making it look exactly like we wanted, for a very reasonable price. Thank you, Angie! The one piece I did get to have was delicious. :) I highly recommend the lemon w/raspberry filling and the dark chocolate w/raspberry filling. Yum!!
Hanic's allowed us to come to their home and showed us various books with many photos of cakes. They also baked us a cake with two different flavors in each half so we could sample "the goods" for free! Best of all, we got to the take the leftover cake home with us! We choose a picture of the cake we liked and made a few small changes to it, along with a different type of icing used than the cake pictured, and Hanic's did a wonderful job interpreting what we wanted. When we arrived at the reception hall, we were amazed at how closely the cake resembled what we were hoping for. They did a wonderful job all around, we were quite happy and would recommend them to any future bride and her husband. Plus, their cakes are the best we've ever tasted! We just celebrated our one year anniversary, and our frozen cake tasted just as good as the day a year ago....
My cake was to die for! Not only was it the most beautiful cake I have ever seen, but it was delicious. My guests ate 3 pieces! My only regret was there were no leftovers. Angie is extremely talented and can design just about anything you through her way. Trust me I was a Chicago bride having a wedding in Michigan and my guests thought I had ordered the cake from the city. Hanic's is by far the best bakery in Michigan and extremely reasonable. Angie, I wish you made birthday cakes because I have cravings for your cake!
