Let me start at the beginning. I got engaged in December 2016 and decided to have our wedding in July 2017. With all of the planning I completely forgot to find a cake vendor and was starting to panic. Quotes were coming in way over what we could spend for our small 50 person... Read More cocktail reception that I actually thought about making my own wedding cake. (yeah I know right..?) I was invited to the 'Wedding Show' at the InterContinental Hotel on Michigan Ave by a friend that said there might be cake vendors there and that I should go with her. That's when I met Joanne, the owner of CAKE. She had some tasty samples, an amazing cake display and talked passionately about her cakes that I knew I had to have a consultation with her. CAKE was so convenient to get to. My fiance and I hopped on the Green line and she was right around the corner from the Ashland stop. I don't want to say that we are food snobs but we were looking for something more special than a yellow or chocolate cake. This was the first tasting I had ever been to and the flavors were nothing that I had ever tasted. They were rich and flavorful and tasted how I imagined my wedding cake to taste like. She described how everything is made with 100% real European butter for the best taste and how all of her compotes were made from scratch, which you can clearly taste. There was no pressure as to what kind of cake we should get. She let our palettes figure out the best pairings and we ended up going with a hazelnut cake with coconut cream and strawberry compote with an Italian meringue buttercream coating. It was to die for. By the end of our tasting I wanted to invite Joanne to our wedding. SERIOUSLY. She is so passionate about what she does that I felt 100% confident that she could deliver us a beautiful delicious cake. Not only is Joanne a fantastic baker but she LITERALLY has a PhD in Food Science. (cherry on top) Which took so much stress off of my shoulders. After the tasting I was a bit worried that we would end up with a thousand dollar cake but she kept us within budget and stayed in constant communication with us up until the cake was delivered.. Needless to say we will be buying all of our cakes from her from now on. Thank you Joanne and your team for all your hard work! Michelle T.
