AMAZING and DELICIOUS cake! My husband and I are not big cake people, in fact, he never eats cake. However, the cakes at Militelo's would make anyone a cake lover! The cake was so moist and delicious!
Our cake was BEAUTIFUL I will never forget it!! Delicious too.
The cake was delicious, but having a wedding cake is way more than that. The cake didn't look like anything we discussed with Jasper. I wanted silver snowflakes all over the cake and there was none to be found. It was very plain with no snowflakes. Also, the top of the cake was supposed to be raised and flowers in between. It was not raised and there were no flowers. I was very disappointed and I will never recommend this baker to anyone.
We had a very simple cake (white cake with white frosting), but don't let that fool you - the taste was out of this world. Gasper even added a small amount of "cafe" coloring so our icing wasn't stark white. The result was simple, elegant, and classy. We took some left over cake home with us and ate every last bit. Our guests have gone on and on about how good the cake was. Only drawback is they don't offer a complimentary anniversary cake one-year later.
Thanks for a great experience - my husband and I will be back!
They specialize in European Torte cakes. Not your typical bland wedding cake. Wonderful flavors, light and rich at the same time. We had them tint the base of the cake, and it turned out brown not campaign. Be careful of that.
Everyone loved the cake! We went with their pineapple mandarin orange torte and it was AMAZING! Well worth your time to go in and taste their products. We are already looking forward to our free one year anniversary cake. :)
Beautiful wedding cake made for us! Absolutely delicious! We had the chocolate raspberry mousse filling!! Wonderful!
Gasper made such a beautiful cake for me. Absolutely breath taking. Still getting comments on how beautiful the cake was. They are extremely friendly inside of the bakery and Gasper is so welcoming. He will do whatever you want. We chose to do the European Tort- raspberry. Unbelievable taste, so light and flavorfull. Could not have been more perfect! Go get a sample...you will know what I am talking about! A MUST HAVE!!!
When my husband and I went in to get an idea of what we wanted for our wedding cake, we hit a bit of a snag. We planned our wedding from out of state, so when we came in to town for our appointment with Gasper we were unaware that a tornado had come through the area the night before. Even though Militelo's didn't have any power in their shop, they didn't cancel our appointment. Gasper had to go to a friend's bakery to get some cakes underway for his other weekend weddings, and left us to browse catalogs while he ran to the other bakery to get things started over there. When we finally sat down, we were able to taste some samples and make a decision on what flavor and style cake we wanted. We were able to get just what we envisioned for a fraction of the cost of other bakeries.
Our wedding cake was from Militelos and it was delicious!! We really liked working with Gasper. You can tell he is passionate about cake!! He does try to push the European torte cake, which is delicious. However, we decided that our families would like a regular cake with buttercream frosting better and he had no problem making this for us. When we got to the hall, we were blown away with how beautiful the cake was displayed! I had provided some fabric, votives and fall leaves and Gasper made them look beautiful around the cake. We are very satisfied with the cake and the customer service we received from this bakery.
The main issue, which seems to be the main issue for most people, was that he wasn't really willing to do what I wanted to do. I gave him 2 or 3 ideas for what I wanted the cake to look like, all pretty simple (no crazy intricate details) and he came up with different reasons for why he couldn't do them. Then he called me a week before & tried to tell me that what I wanted him to do with the cake wasn't going to look good (even though it looked great in all the pictures i've seen of it done that way) I ended up with a very basic looking cake. It tasted excellent and looked nice, but it just wasn't what I wanted.
Militello's did a wonderful job with the wedding cake. They are a little inflexible but the cake was awesome! Very moist and not heavy!
I enjoyed working with Gasper, and our cake looked fantastic. We tasted tons of cakes, and Militello's was the first that really tasted like dessert-- it is delicious. I think that they have their system down to a T, so they're pretty reliable.
I was discouraged from using more than 1 cake flavor and felt I had to push to get what I wanted. The employees in the bakery didn't seem to get along particularly well with the boss. The place looks a little dated, but ultimately the cakes they put out are excellent.
There is no doubt our cake was delicious - we had a pineapple orange mandarin torte cake that was soooo delicious and moist! As soon as we tasted it we had to have it. It looked great, too. The great thing about this baker is that he uses whip cream for frosting, which he can make look like fondant, but it tastes much better than fondant.
I wasn't quite as thrilled about their customer service, though. They are very, very particular about a lot of things and a lot of things they require of you. I also heard some of my other vendors had a hard time dealing with him, and he also left business cards on the cake table. I think that's completely unprofessional and totally tacky, but my venue took them off before guests arrived.
So, if you want a fantastic cake, this is a great place to get it from. My concerns were certainly not enough to ruin the experience, and I would still recommend them to others.

Sorry for the business card . BUT as far as being very particular i must admit i'm guilty only because we want to showcase your wedding cake in the best possible way, when your guest arrive we want everything to look just perfect ,that is what we strive for, at the risk of being particular. For other vendors I always cooperate with them if one of your other vendors had a problem with us please have them contact me so we can discuss the matter and have better cooperation in the future.Finally thanks for you kind words about our cakes that is what we here at Militello's always strive for.Wishing you both a happy and blessed life together
Cake was delicious and looked beautiful. Seemed there was only one cake style you could really do there, so if you wanted to have your own say in how it looked, that was not the place. Regardless, I was thrilled with how beautiful it turned out.
The quality was absolutely fabulous! The only thing was that my cake was not an outdoor summer time kind of cake... it sweltered, but the conditions were a bit abnormal. The level of service was topped by none, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Not to mention it was absolutely delicious!!!
Militello’s Bakery provided me with the perfect wedding cake and also other desserts for our wedding. The cake tasted like it was just baked and the wonderful frosting and flavors of the cake made it just the right highlight of our wedding. We heard people talk about the cakes for weeks upon weeks after our wedding on how good the cake was. The service was excellent and also all of the fine detail’s that were put into the wedding cake was totally amazing I couldn’t believe how much work was put into the cake. We compared prices before we purchased the cake so the prices were very competitive and also worth the extra cost as the cake was above expectation.
We opted for the Mandarin Pineapple Orange torte type cake and it was phenomenal. The cake decorations (scrolling etc) were beautiful and Gasper is the nicest man to work with. We could not have dreamed of a more tasty and beautiful cake.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE VERY KIND WORDS
The cake was beautiful and tasted fabulous. I remember being pleasantly surprised how great it tasted when I had my first bite!
They spent quite a bit of time with me helping me decide what I wanted and did not get offended when I wanted something simple and not to fancy. They did take their work very seriously and wanted to make sure everything looked beautiful for me. (I thought they were a little overly concerned about the display when I was not.)

THANK YOU FOR YOUR WONDERFUL REVIEW
I do not blog, or write reviews often, perhaps three in the last 10 years. However, I am compelled to write this review.
I have known Gasper and Nancy Militello for over 16 years now and in that time I have never met another baker who has the love, passion and desire for perfection that Gasper possess. He is truly the Michelangelo of wedding cakes.
I recall when he first wanted to become the paramount wedding cake baker in Michigan, and the endless hours he spent to perfect the finest possible wedding cakes. His Old World work ethic has made him the best in Michigan, if not the U.S.
There are few people who in life you will meet that take their skill to an art, and Gasper in one of those people. Some say Gasper is inflexible. Yes he is inflexible, when it comes to making sure your have the greatest possible wedding cake experience that you and your guests will speak of for years to come, but would you want anything less?
Not to use Militello's Bakery for your wedding or anniversary cake is just simply the greatest single mistake one could make for such an important life event.
I hope you will at least stop by Militello's Bakery and taste the pride he puts into every cake he makes, you will not be disappointed and thankful you did.
I wish you all a wonderful wedding or anniversary.
THE SERVICE AT MILITELLO'S WAS SPECIAL
THE CAKE WAS AWESOME
BEATIFUL AND SCRUMPTIOUS
GORGEOUS CAKE BUT EVEN BETTER TASTING
THE PINEAPPLE MANDERIN ORANGE TORTE WAS TO DIE FOR
THE RASPBERRY MOUSSE TORTE MELTED IN YOUR MOUTH
Militello Bakery is a landmark bakery in the Detroit Metro Area, specializing in wedding cakes that are not only delicious, but also
spectacular to look at. Any Saturday, you will see Gasper, the owner, personally sitting down with brides throughout the day, finalizing cake plans for their big day. I personally ask each of the brides that come into our salon, "where are you getting your cake?" and a huge majority are planning on or have already booked their cake order with Militello Bakery.
Gasper, the owner of Militello's Bakery, has the most beautiful, delicious wedding cakes and desserts in the metro Detroit area. If you want authentic, artfully decorated cakes, I highly recommend Gasper and his staff to exceed your expectations on your special day.
As a wedding vendor, I've tasted literally hundreds of cakes over the years. However, I can honestly say that Militelo's Bakery makes the BEST cakes I have ever eaten! They are unlike any cake you have ever tasted and you will undoubtedly agree once you sample what they have to offer! But beware, eating one piece of their cake is simply not enough!
