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.
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!
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! :)
I have never had so many people tell me they had two slices of wedding cake. People who never have cake were raving about it. Their cannoli filling is unmatched! The cake was stunning and was truly a wow factor at the wedding!
the design of the cake was beautiful. The bakery offered cake tasting which was nice, but the overall experience seemed very commercialized. The taste of the cake was average. I am glad we chose whipped cream filling with strawberries, which made the cake less sweet. Leftovers tasted better the following day. I am wondering if wedding cakes are more about the looks than the taste
So many combinations of cake and fillings available! Tasting was FUN and consultant was friendly and helpful! Our cake looked exactly as we agreed upon from a picture and it was delivered on time.
Our venue works with Palermo's on a regular basis so we decided to check it out. We enjoyed every second of our tasting and decided to upgrade our cake. The bakery took a traditional wedding cake and made it look like pumpkins stacked on top of one another with fondant leaves and vines. It was beautiful and a great detail added to our fall wedding. I can not wait to dig into our top layer on our anniversary.
I had my wedding on September 27th and Palermos did my wedding cake. It was included with my venue but there service was amazing. They have so many flavors to choose from and they were all delicious. They decorated the cake exactly how I envisioned and everyone was complimenting how beautiful the cake looked and tasted. I would definitely recommend Palermos for any special occasion that you have.
My wedding just passed in August of this year and my husband and I ordered from Palermo's. We went and were greeted in a welcoming manner and tended to by our personal consultant. We communicated our vision and she seemed to understand. The cake arrived just as we both had envisioned it and came out looking and tasting fantastic. The only down side was that 2 weeks before the wedding we kept getting calls saying we owed money, when we had already paid in full. They were in the process of moving locations and mixed up our paperwork. I ended having to call my mother-in-law, who paid for the cake and ask her to provide a bank statement, which was a little embarrassing and unprofessional. Otherwise, the cake was delivered on time and was delicious!
Our wedding was at the Park Savoy on 6-27-14. We had a cake testing at Palermo's in March, where we sampled at least 15 different cakes. From the minute we entered Palermo's, we know that we would have them make our wedding cakes. From the beautiful displays in the store, to the taste of the cakes, we knew that they would make the cake that I envisioned for our wedding day. The cake was a hit and I am so glad to have had such beautiful decor for my pictures. The staff at Palermo's did a great job. We loved our cake!

We used Palermo's for our engagement party and our wedding. They did a fantastic job and the cake (vanilla & lemon) was so so delicious. My husband and I are not fans of fondant so we did everything in buttercream. Palermo's was able to build out 7-tier wedding cake in all buttercream and it was absolutely gorgeous and delicious. I highly recommend them.
We visited the Union City location which is much smaller and should most likely have gone to the main location. However, there was no line and the visit was smooth. The cake was included as part of our venue deal but I would recommend this place to anyone, I am just unsure of the cost. I would suggest brides to have an idea of what they like before going to the bakery, as the pictures are somewhat difficult to see. They did provide the cake on time and it came out even better than we expected. It actually tasted amazing, which is not true for all wedding cakes. The nutella and caramel fillings were to die for. Highly recommended!
The bakery has a great reputation and supplies a detailed appointment and creativity. They made our wedding cake exactly how we wanted it!
Palermos bakery is fantastic! My wedding cake not only looked absolutely beautiful, but tasted so amazing! Palermos gives you so many different options for fillings that are ALL so delicious! It was so difficult to choose just one! I received several compliments on how delicious the cake was!
Our wedding cake came with the catering hall. Tehy gave us a choice and we visited both bakeries. Palermo's was professional and helpful. They did a wonderful job on the design of the cake and it was delicious as well! Can't wait to have the top tier in a year!
Great selection, delicious choices, high quality of service. Will go back there to order any future birthday or other specialty cakes for sure!
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.
The perfect wedding cake in terms of taste and style! It was absolutely gorgeous, bling and all! There is a reason Palermos has been around as long as they have, they are truly the best!!!
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.
