Such a good value posted 6/1/2014

In northern NJ this is such a good deal!!! The cake was delicious!!! It was not exactly what we had discussed but for the price and how good it was I didn't even care. Cake was $700 and $100 for delivery.

Lets Eat Cake! posted 5/17/2014 (modified 5/18/2014)

I used Palermo Bakery for my wedding cake because they work closely with the wedding venue I used. I was skeptical with the choices we were going to get. But was very surprised with all the choices that we were given. Palermo was very friendly to deal with and worked with us to find the perfect cake! The end result was beautiful and Delicious too!

Delicious & Beautiful Wedding Cake posted 5/8/2014 (modified 5/9/2014)

My venue, the Imperia, uses Palermo's for the included wedding cake. Great money saver!!

In the planning stage, my husband & I went for our cake tasting. It was amazing!!! We were given like 24 different slices of cake, each with a different filling. They were all so yummy! They also had us look through photos of cakes that are included with our package with the venue and there was A LOT to choose from! I thought they would have about three designs to choose from, but it was the complete opposite! I got the exact design I was looking for and they were more than happy to customize it just the way I wanted it. When we left, we were happy, high on sugar, and excited to see our wedding cake!

When I saw the cake the day of, it was amazing! Just the way I wanted it! And most importantly, it tasted AMAZING!!!!!!! I did the customary freezing of the top tier and cannot wait to eat it a year from now or maybe just go back to Palermo's & order a copy cat cake and enjoy a delicious fresh one! :)

Fantastic Cake posted 7/29/2014

When we booked our reception at The Graycliff, they said the cake was included in the price of the reception through Palermo's Bakery. We set up our consult appointment, and went to meet with our designer. She gave us tons of different cakes and fillings to taste (we ended up choosing red velvet cake with a chocolate fudge Nutella filling). They also altered the size of the top tier to accommodate our cake topper, as it was three separate pieces that wouldn't fit on the traditional size top tier. Everyone raved about how good the cake was. It was fresh, moist and tasted spectacular. Very pleased with how it came out. We can't wait to have the top tier on our anniversary!

When we went to sample the cakes everything was delicious. Olga was so helpful in helping us design our dream cake. I loved that they paid attention to detail and they printed out the pictures of the patterns and pt a pack together so that they would make sure they had a clear view of what the cake should look like which was comforting knowing that they did that. The day of the wedding the cake was delivered late and had some small flaws in the buttercream such as holes and missing buttercream ( you can see flaws in the photos). The pattern that we chose was not symmetrical and you could clearly see it because the rhinestones were not leveled with one another. It looked like the cake was rushed to be honest. They didn't take there time to design it when they did.

I really thought my cake looked beautiful and the consultation was a breeze. The staff was so lovely even when I called to change my mind on the flavor of the cake. Although, when I ordered vanilla cake with whipped cream and strawberries I was very disappointed when on my wedding day my husband and I were given two pieces of cake with no strawberries. As we were walking around I looked at the table with all of the cut cake. I saw that the absolute vast majority of the pieces also did not have strawberries. That being said, the red velvet (the second flavor) was very good and we will try our best to save it for our one year anniversary.

This vendor was actually included with our reception package; however ironically, it was the same bakery that my husband's brother used for his wedding a couple months before ours. When we went for our tasting they had a plethora of options to choose from and the consultant was helpful in guiding us with her professional opinion. She took into consideration exactly what I wanted and made that happen. We were very pleased and would recommend Palermo's to others.

Tasty, tasty, tasty!! posted 6/17/2014

My now husband and I were to choose between Palmero and The Cake Boss as our venue worked with those 2 bakeries. After visiting Palmero and grabbing some coffee and pastries, we knew they were better than the Cake Boss's product, and didn't want to not have a wedding cake from them. When we went for our consult, we worked with Jerry. Jerry was able to sketch a design on our cake from our invitation, and it looked great on paper...and it looked even better in person. Jerry also worked with us to get a good variety of desserts from their bakery for a venetian table. We had a great vartiety of pastries and cookies, and Jerry didn't steer us wrong with the amounts we should order. I would say the only bad thing about Palmero is how busy they are! :-) I worked with Leighann for payments and confirmations, and her and I played phone tag a few times because they were so busy. It's not necessarily a bad thing, because you know you're going with a reputable, and delicious place. :-)

If my husband and I lived closer to Palmero Bakery, they would be the "go to" bakery for us all the time. Palmero, you guys planning on bringing a location to Somerville? :-)

Our wedding cake was not only gorgeous but delicious also! I had many compliments on how great our wedding cake tasted. Most people expect the cake not to be good - but we had great feedback that it was good! I would definitely recommend them to other Brides and also consider getting other cakes from them as well!

Beautiful and delicious! posted 6/8/2014

Our wedding cake was amazingly beautiful and exactly what we were looking for! Olga at Palermo's was beyond helpful in choosing the type of cake we were looking for by listening to all of the things that we mentioned that we liked in other cakes and putting it together into the perfect cake for us. The cake was beyond delicious, too!

Yummy!! posted 4/25/2014 (modified 4/26/2014)

Palermo's Bakey is the best. When my husband and I went for our cake tasting it was very difficult to make a choice!! Everything was sooo good!! We had such a hard time choosing that we actually chose two different flavors, vanilla cake with tres leches moose and chocolate cake with raspberry moose. My guests would not stop talking about the cake! Their work was neat and very beautiful. Thank you Palermo's for the fantastic wedding cake.

This bakery is very well known. That have numerous wedding cake options and styles. My favorite part was the various filling options, which included a Nutella filling! Very different yet classic.

Wedding Cake Magic posted 4/15/2014 (modified 4/16/2014)

My husband and I used Palermo's for our wedding cake and were incredibly impressed. We showed up for the tasting and they offered more cake options than we could have possibly eaten. Each flavor was delicious and we had a hard time deciding! When it came time for designs, they were great about showing us all of our options and even make some mock-ups of flowers for the cake to ensure that we liked them. The whole experience was fantastic and the cake not only looked beautiful on the day but it tasted amazing as well!

Beautiful and delicious posted 4/9/2014 (modified 4/10/2014)

I wish I could upload a photo of our cake - it was so beautiful and EXACTLY what we'd discussed with Palermos. We met the baker at the Union City location and she was marvelous at walking us through the selection process and clearly recorded the correct info for Ridgefield Park because the cake was seriously perfect.

However, on top of beautiful, it was delicious. We had two layers of vanilla with dulce de leche and one of red velvet. We selected real butter cream icing and the top was all silver butter cream flowers. Everyone loved the cake.

We came back after our honeymoon and the cake top had been in the fridge for the 8 days. We finished it with our family over the week -- it was still moist and delicious. Fantastic!

I have not inputted a cost because the cake from Palermo was included in our contract with the Olde Mill in Basking Ridge.

Amazing and gluten free! posted 4/8/2014 (modified 4/9/2014)

When we told Palermo's that I was gluten free they made sure they had plenty gluten free options for me to try. Not only were they amazing but they offered to do two cakes for our wedding. One gluten free and one regular. Both were phenomenal. Great taste and the cake looked exactly like their design drawing.

AMAZING posted 3/8/2014 (modified 3/9/2014)

Without a doubt, the best place to go to for wedding cakes. To start off, the tasting was fabulous. You get to try everything and anything you can imagine. The person that we worked with was so incredibly accommodating and helpful. Their staff helped us create a vision and executed on it to absolute perfection. Our cake was the most gorgeous cake in the world. Not only that but it tasted delicious. I also used them to create a groom's cake for our rehearsal. I gave them a picture of what I wanted and got more than I expected. The cake was incredible. They are incredible.
