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! :)

So delicious and pretty, too posted 12/4/2014

Our venue recommended Palermo's Bakery in Ridgefield Park. We went to the consultation, which conveniently, you can schedule through their website, and were overwhelmed by the styles and flavors they offer couples. We loved the final design and the red velvet cake with cream cheese icing was a HUGE hit and made for awesome cake cutting pictures, too!

Cake tasted great! posted 11/23/2014

Our cake was thru Palermo’s Bakery and it was included in our venue. We got to choose between what options were included and they even let us mix and match pieces of options we liked to make our cake a little unique. I will admit the woman we had for our tasting, while nice seemed to rush us thru the tasting, even though there was no one else there with us tasting or picking out cakes as we were only ones there. And I was worried about what we picked out because we felt rushed we had forgotten that we wanted to add a monogram to the one tier. I emailed her later to add the monogram to our cake and she made the changes for us. I kind of wished we hadn’t been rushed at the tasting so I could have remembered that we actually wanted to add that while we were there so I could see her notes. On our day our cake tasted and looked great. It was almost exactly what we wanted! Thankfully I didn’t notice it until a few days later when someone sent me a picture but our monogram were the wrong initials. Thankfully it didn’t matter to us as our cake still looked and tasted great! And so far no one else has noticed or said anything! In the end the real beauty of our cake was that it was ours and the overall look we wanted. Plus it tasted great!!

Wedding Cake posted 11/23/2014

Our appointment at Palermo's was last week. We met with our consultant Olga who was simply amazing. She was sweet, polite and made the whole experience wonderful. She helped us pick out and design the perfect cake to fit our theme and ideas. I wish all our vendor experiences are as awesome as this. I highly recommend Palermo's to any bride who wants a beautiful and delicious cake! I would also highly recommend Olga who was a total sweetheart and made the whole experience great. =D

Palermo's provided the wedding cake and other items for our Viennese hour. When we met with the staff at our catering hall (Bridgewater Manor), we mentioned that my husband-to-be had a dietary restriction that involved dairy and would need a dairy-free cake. Since they weren't providing the cake themselves they told us to talk to Palermo's. Setting up the appointment was easy and the bakery itself is very nice. The person we met with was a little bit less than personable but she tried to help us out with the dairy issue. Unfortunately they were not able to accommodate our request, which made us have to purchase a separate cake for my husband. I understand that this doesn't necessarily make them a bad place to go to (everything was good by the way) but I think for a bakery that supplies so many catering halls with cakes they should be able to accommodate common dietary restrictions.

Palermo's Bakery took great care of us while we were planning our wedding. Our wedding package included the cake, which was going to be created by Palermo's. We arrived there for the tasting appointment and enjoyed ourselves from the first moment. We laughed, we joked, we ate some delicious cake, and left with a design that we knew we would love. We had come in with an image that we liked and were told 'oh sure, we can do that!' It came out perfect, looked fantastic and tasted delicious.

What an Experience! posted 11/6/2014

We went to Palermos for a cake tasting. This was sooo much fun. They treat you as if you are the only bride (and family) around. You have their undivided attention as they go through each part of the order. We looked at a huge selection of cakes and then got to design our own. How many layers, what shape for each layer, type of cake, type of filling (mix and match!)roses, designs, whatever you want. They brought us about 20 slices of cake and we had to taste them all because each had a different filling. The cake was delicious and looked amazing when it was complete.

Good cake! posted 11/5/2014

We used Palermo's for our wedding cake. The cake was delicious, very moist and not sickly sweet. The design we got needed to be decorated (our florist took care of that) so my only note would be that if you don't want to have the cake decorated yourself, you will only have a small number of cakes that can stand on their own aesthetically.

Great Cake! posted 11/2/2014

We had our wedding reception at Seasons Catering Hall in Washington Township, NJ. Included in the package, you received two options for a bakery. My wife and I went to both bakeries for a tasting and based on taste alone Palermo was the best option. Additionally, Palermo offered a wide variety of cake flavors and
cake designs.

While the staff at Palermo may make you feel rushed on the phone and in person, the cake speaks for itself. Also, remember if the cake is included in the reception package there is no interaction after picking the cake.

The cake arrived on time and our guest loved the cannoli filled vanilla cake.

The cake is delicious there is nothing more I can really say.

We recommend

If you get married in NJ you need to get your cake from Palermos. The outside was just as delicious as the inside. There just isn't a better place to go!

Dream Wedding Cake posted 10/26/2014

Palermo Bakery was included with our catering contract at Waters Edge, and they were better than any bakery we would have picked on our own. At our tasting they gave us two huge plates of cakes, and a plate for us to take home to make sure we were happy with our decisions.

Since our cake was included, we weren't sure that we would be able to get the unique design we had in mind, but they were able to accommodate our ideas for a minimal additional cost. We are beyond happy with our cake and the friendly staff at Palermo Bakery.

do not disappoint! posted 10/23/2014

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!
Thank you!

couple who married posted 10/21/2014

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
