A group of friends got together at a different restaurant to celebrate a birthday and a Helfer's decorated birthday cake was brought in for dessert. It was the most delicious cake ever--light, moist, with frosting that was not too sweet. Everything I've ever purchased there...More

OMG! These are the bomb! So delicious, it's like eating a cloud with a yummy filling. These should come with a warning. They are hard to stop eating at one. Fantastic bakery. I will come back to try the food.

We always use Helfer's for special occasion cakes but have lately enjoyed their pre-made cakes, too. They even have pre-made pizzas and quiches in their freezer so that will be our next endeavor.

This is my mom's favorite place to buy Red Velvet Cake...We bought it on her 40th bday and then again for her 60th this month. It was just as good this time as the first time we had it! We received nothing but RAVE reviews...More
