Gorgeous AND delicious cake! posted 10/9/2014 (modified 10/9/2014)

Alessi Bakery was spot on with our wedding cake. It was EXACTLY what we wanted and so beautiful. We were unsure what type of glitter icing we wanted to go with and Melissa was nice enough to make us a sample cake with the three we were interested in at no charge.

Everyone was easy to deal with and they delivered as promised. Not only was the cake beautiful but it was delicious too. We received so many compliments. The only thing was that we rented a cake stand that didn't get delivered but I have absolute confidence that once I contact them in regards to this they will gladly refund the money. It was only $20.00 for the stand rental too which was a much better price than most companies offered.

Delicious cake and great service posted 5/13/2014 (modified 5/14/2014)

We chose to get both our wedding cake and groom's cake from Alessi because of a prior experience with them and we knew their cakes were absolutely delicious, unlike many wedding cakes. The groom's cake (a football helmet) came out perfectly. I was a little bit disappointed with how the wedding cake looked, however. I had shown the cake designer a picture of exactly how I wanted our cake to look, and although it was still beautiful, it did not have nearly the detail or colors I wanted. I specifically asked for a lace pattern all over the cake and a giant fondant bow, and instead there were simply icing squiggles (instead of lace) and the fondant bow looked a little sad. Further, I requested a cake stand and the cake stand was not delivered, so my wedding cake was displayed on a piece of round cardboard instead. Even so, the prices were great and the cake was just SO delicious, and the tasting session went well

Melissa makes one heck of a cake. We did a vanilla cream with fudge filling for the bottom. A strawberry swirl and lemon filling for the middle. A cappuccino and fudge filling for the top. We couldn't have been happier. The cake was moist and where the filling met the cake never got soggy.

Best wedding cake ever! posted 3/6/2014 (modified 3/7/2014)

This was literally the best cake I have had at a wedding. My consultation with them went great and they gave us some really awesome choices for flavors and fillings. They did an amazing job and I couldn't have asked for more.

Tasty! posted 2/6/2014 (modified 2/7/2014)

Our wedding cake was absolutely delicious! Our guests continue to tell us that it was the best wedding cake they had ever had! The tasting was a lot of fun, too, and they bring out every option and every combination of fillings you could ever want! They can also make any design that you request. My cake was flawless and beautiful. I loved it!! We did have one major hiccup the day of the wedding, though, and this is why I gave Alessi 4 stars. Just as I was about to walk down the isle, the coordinator told me that the cake topper never arrived with the cake. We were told to bring the cake topper to the bakery 1 week before the wedding; and we did. But they forgot it. Fortunately, my wedding coordinator took care of it. She called the bakery, and they rushed it over. The topper was on the cake before the reception even started! I was disappointed that they forgot it, but impressed with their sense of urgency.

Alessi Bakery posted 11/13/2013 (modified 11/14/2013)

Melissa, the wedding cake designer, is extremely creative and talented. We had a unique concept for our wedding (steampunk) and she was able to grasp what we wanted immediately, and sketch the cake of our dreams. She also accommodated my requests for our dessert bar with a smile, along with my special requests to soak our wedding cake in various liquors. People are still talking about the amaretto white cake, jack daniels chocolate cake, salted caramel cupcakes, chocolate peanut butter cupcakes, pumpkin cupcakes, candy apples, and chocolate covered bacon. I will definitely be going back to Alessi through the years to order these again and relive our wedding day!

MMMMMMMM!!!! posted 10/30/2013

The wedding cake was amazing!!!!!! We kind of had a strawberry shortcake as our wedding cake, NBD! We also had several different pies (Apple, cherry, pecan, and peach cobbler). Everything was amazing and I cannot wait till our one year anniversary so I can try the cake again---hopefully it holds up, but if not I know where I can get more! I highly recommend Alessi Bakery. The deserts were to die for and we still are getting compliments today about how different we went with the desert approach and how much everyone enjoyed it. Communication was very good. All through email because they do have a business to run, and I just think email is so much easier. When we came in for the tasting there were just so many good options that we just started fooling around and came up with our final decision. Go with Alessi. They are very reasonable and VERY GOOD!!!!

This is a top notch bakery. I shopped around for a while and could not find the combination of taste any style until I got to Alessi. They are not the cheapest but their quality compensates for the additional price. I should have started with them and save all the trips for cake tasting.

Cake Bliss posted 6/20/2013

This was the only bakery we were able to use with Cross Creek Ranch but it was so amazing I'm glad we didn't have any other choice! The cake was so moist and the icing was perfectly sweet! We had marble cake with buttercream icing on top and chocolate buttercream and bavarian cream fillers on two tiers and on one tier we had chocolate cake with bavarian cream filler. The cake was beautiful and exactly how I had pictured it to look! Everyone really enjoyed the cake!

Delish! posted 4/28/2013

Melissa was so easy to work with! The cake was delish, my only concern was that the color of the cake was a bit off, but still gorgeous! Alessi's also did our favors (black and white cookies) which they packaged for us with tags and twine I has purchased. They also did our grooms cake which was awesome!!!

Phenomenal! posted 1/27/2013

We ordered our wedding cake from Alessi Bakery in Oldsmar. Their staff was great, exceeded the expectations of us and our families and the food was delicious. Best tiramisu I've ever had! We ordered the wedding cake, decadent dessert platter, fruit tray, and flan, mini cheesecakes, and cookie tier. Highly recommend!

Yummy! posted 12/26/2012

My wedding cake looked exactly like I dreamed! And it was so YUMMY!!!!

Not only did I trust my wedding cake to be made by them, but I also had them make my grooms cake. It was the dumb and dumber dog van with my husband driving. It came out PERFECT!!!!! It looked exactly like the dog van down to the hair and the tonge sticking out! Everyone was dying laughing when they saw it. I cant say enough about how amazing they were.

And they were so easy to work with! I called and got every question answered and were so friendly and easy going... LOVED LOVED LOVED them!
