The wedding cake was beautiful! Cost was very good as well.
I grew up in this area and knew that I always wanted Zoe's to do my wedding cake because they are the best. I am so glad that I did, the cake was delicious, fresh, and well designed. They have a talent and I would recommend them to everyone. They do travel to New Orleans, which is where I got married.
Shane, at Zoe's Bakery did a fantastic job with our wedding cake! I loved the scroll/fleur de lis design on our wedding invitation. I took him an invitation, and he designed the piped icing after the invitation. It was a beautiful, elegant 5-tier cake, and was delicious! We alternated tiers of chocolate/raspberry with white chocolate/strawberry. The cake and fruit were so fresh, and many guests commented on how much they enjoyed the cake.
I was excited to see if Zoe's could do my wedding cake because I have heard good things about them and have bought their pastries before. Well a good friend of mine had bought a few cakes from them in the past and the taste was inconsistent, but set up an appointment for a cake tasting anyway.
I showed the chef my design and he was able to do it. I told him that I did not want fondant and wanted a half wedding and half chocolate wedding cake. Well, he said he couldn't do it on buttercream frosting. He said that my design would have to be put on fondant, and then it would be peeled off before they handed it to the guests. My design was pretty simple and I didn't not want my guests being handed a cake slice that looked messy since the design would be peeled off.
Then he said that in order to taste a chocolate cake slice, I had to PAY the deposit. I wasn't going to pay a deposit for a flavor that I wanted to try and wouldn't know if it was good.
Needles to say, I picked a vendor in Hammond that not only did my design on buttercream frosting (he made it smooth like fondant) which came out great and tasted fantastic, but he gave me all of the cake flavors and fillings he had. He also gave some to my fiance to try, all free of charge.
Shane at Zoe's bakery was so easy to work with and helpful. We had a fairly simple wedding cake that was beautiful and delicious. Our Groom's Cake was my husband's golf bag, with some of his other favorite things combined in there - it was AWESOME! Everyone loved it, especially my husband! Will definitely use Zoe's Bakery in the future!
Shane is an absolute genius! He made the perfect wedding cake for my wedding based on my personality and little wedding details. While the cake was beautiful, it tasted even better! We had a different flavor for each tier because Shane has amazing flavors and a lot to choose from. All of the layers of our cake were moist and the fruit in the layers were so fresh and delicious. I absolutely hate fondant but Shane's fondant is so yummy. He makes it fresh and it tastes like marshmallows.
Zoe's Bakery charges an all inclusive price for wedding cakes including decoration and a cake stand rental. That was so nice and it was one less thing to worry about. The cake of my caliber would have cost me 3x the amount as other New Orleans bakeries and it would not have been delicious.
Zoe's Bakery also made gorgeous gluten-free chocolate cupcakes for my guests with Celiac disease and I heard those were so good too!
My husband and I will start using Zoe's Bakery for every event in our lives because the cakes are that amazing and Shane and his staff are so sweet and easy to work with.
Zoe's bakery is the BEST!!! I am VERY picky about cake and flavors and Zoe's helped me pick the exact cake I was looking for. Couldn't have asked for better service or experience. They did an amazing job on the wedding cake and groom's cake. The cakes looked amazing in pictures!!
I got both my groom's cake, and my bridal shower cake from here. My mom was actually the one to work with Zoe, but she said the service was amazing and he really listened to everything that she wanted. End result -- 2 great tasting and amazing looking cakes!
The cake was delicious as Zoe's cakes always are!
However, they showed up 15 minutes before my ceremony started with the cake... I guess at least they made it before the reception but I expected them to deliver the cake earlier.
Also, I had given them a picture of EXACTLY what I wanted the cake to look like and they added flowers on the cake in places that I did not like. I wanted a clean cut, modern style cake but instead got a traditional/tacky (to me) looking cake. Other people told me they thought it was beautiful but it was not my style & not what I told them I wanted. When using this vendor beware that the baker is going to ultimately make your cake like what they want to make it look like.
Zoe's did our groom's cake and wedding cake and they were both amazing! They were a pleasure to work with and did a fabulous job. And, their price was very reasonable. They did forget to include my cake pulls in the wedding cake, but they were all dealing with a family death that day. And, they sent me a king cake in apology.
They matched my wedding cake to have the same look as my wedding dress. It was a success....everyone said "the cake looks just like your dress" However, I then heard that the cake was dry!! My worst fear. We order cakes from here all the time and they are anything but dry. Not sure what happend.
Family favorite. The wedding cake and grooms cake was so great. We use them for birthday celebrations so it was a no brainer when it came to my cake. Not to mention my sister used them for here wedding cake 3 years ago.
My cake was perfect and so delicious! Shane met with me and designed the most amazing wedding and groom's cake. The flavors were perfect and the cakes were beautiful! My husband loved his grooms cake so much that it has been his facebook profile pic since the wedding. My only regret is that I didn't have more of it for myself. I want to go back to Zoe's in order to get some cakes just for us to eat on our own! :)
Zoe's was fantastic! First they were so welcoming. They catered to us and went above and beyond what we asked. I showed them a picture of the exact cake I wanted. Chef Gorringe did a beautiful job and made sure we had more than enough cake! The flavors were wonderful and I couldn't have asked for anything more and made sure we weren't paying more than we needed to.
Zoe's did an amazing job on both our wedding cake and the grooms cake. We brought in a picture of our wedding cake and asked if they could get anywhere close to it? I was amazed to see it was exactly like the picture when it was completed! And it was super tasty! Chocolate with Chocolate ganche! (the groom's cake was wedding cake flavored)
My cake from Zoe’s was soooo delicious and absolutely stunning to look at. I have gotten a lot of complements from my wedding cake!
The cakes tasted AMAZING! The grooms cake was one that we have never seen before and they were able to make it to our expectations. We ordered a english soccer jersey and it was great. The white wedding cake tasted great and everyone raved about it. We ordered choclate for the grooms cake and white with fresh strawberries and carrot cake as two layers of the brides cake. The only thing was there were a few things wrong with the cake such as i called and asked that there be nothing on top of the cake and when it showed up there were huge blue icing flowers on top. We originally were going to have the florist put fresh flowers on top but I changed my plan. Also one of the layers did not have the design that all the other 3 layers had and I am not sure why they did that differently. We paid nearly 1 thousand (maybe more) and at that price I have high expectations and expected it to be perfect. I did not let it ruin my day though.
I was so pleased with the way both my wedding cake and the groom's cake turned out. They were both beautiful and delicious and exactly what I ordered.
LOVE this place!! THE best tasting wedding cake/groom's cake....and, I tried many!
