So after the new owners took over and after being treated rudely on several occasions and stopped trying. Last night someone gave me a groupon certificate that was going to expire that day so I decided it was worth a free try. I was really hoping they had improved since I am a baked goods nut. Since it was 3... More

They are the amazingly delicious and beautiful. Worth going just for that. The Cakery is a little hard to find on the backside of a shopping center, but it's worth looking for. Friendly staff.

Everything I have ever had from the Cakery has been delicious. Their decorated cakes are beautiful. Fresh baked goods are pricey but worth it!

Buyer beware! While I had hoped to resolve this once the owner saw the quotes I received, he unfortunately opted not to respond. I ordered a two tier cake for my daughter's baby shower for her first born-to-be. Just two hours before the event, I went to pick up the cake and was told that the baker was home with... More

Chocolate cake itself was too dry. Butter cream was excellent and not too sweet. Been buying cakes here for many a year and will continue since this is the best place I know in the area. Individual selections have always been excellent but I have not tried them made by the new baker.

I planned a visit to this bakery after someone introduced me to one of the items and told me about it. I traveled a good distance to try this bakery. After using the navigation to locate the place, I became very discouraged after riding around the mall multiple times and I couldn't find the bakery. I finally decided to ask... More

Seven years ago I ordered a gorgeous but tasteless birthday cake here. Upon word of new management I had high hopes to support local business. Unfortunately, even after I expressed my concerns from my previous experience, I was still underwhelmed with the EXACT same flavorless tasting buttercream frosting recipe and overcooked cake. I will NEVER return to this bakery. Just... More

We got our son's wedding cake here, and also pastries for the engagement party, and all of it was just wonderful. They were great to deal with for tastings, and delivered food that was beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. Go here soon!

Got 2 cakes for a special party and they were a big hit especially the key lime. The Tres leche cake made the Cinco de Maya party!
