This is just about as good as a bakery gets. Our family gets the fresh strawberry whip cream layer cake every year and it an event. Its all good thought. Michigan CIty may be a small town, but this bakery would be tops anywhere.

I walked in needing a cheese cake for Birthday. 30 minutes before they closed. She searched the back of the store and found the last one. They are awesome, I was happy with just the cake. They personalized it for me too. P.s. Everything is great in this place. I love how helpful they are.

For years our family tradition was celebrating birthdays and gradutions with their deliouse cakes. They use to make excellent cakes and there was excitment walking into this cake shop back in the day. However, Since 2011, I stopped going there because, the employees are not interested in their walk-in customers. There is nothing professional about how they run this bakery.... More

Just to go in and look at everything they have is a treat but wow, the food is the best. They can pretty much make anything you want and free hand designs.

The desserts are fantastic but the prices are high. Definitely worth the money for a special occasion. I have never had a bad dessert from there, cakes are awesome!!!

I recently suggested a family member contact Truffles for a special occasion cake. My husband and I had purchased pastries and small sweets from Truffles in the past and found them acceptable. After several attempts to gain notice and consideration; via 1 physical visit; 2 phone calls; and 3 email attempts; my family member was seemingly denied access and unable... More

I love Trufflles Birthday cakes with Bavarian Cream filling and fruit! They are pricey but special. They have delicious scones, chocolate dipped chocolate chip cookies, tarts and various other goodies. My favorite item was our Wedding Cake! They did an excellent job. There was no cake left! I highly recommend this bakery!

Our experience with Truffles was by far the worst customer service experience I have ever had at a place of business. To top it off, the owner tried to start an argument with me in front of my children in her own place of business. They are extremely unprofessional and downright nasty. I work with bakeries on a regular basis... More

Hands down the best cream puffs in 100 miles. Cookies are beautiful and scrumptious. Mini pastries, pies, tortes, cakes ... you can just taste the BUTTER and fresh ingredients. I keep extra boxes of marzipan petits fours in my freezer. Our adult children cannot get enough.
