Very pleased!Reviewed on 9/08/2014 Anne D
We got our wedding back from "cake" and it was truly the best wedding cake I've ever had. Many of our guests made a point to tell us this as well. The service we received was very professional and helpful from the scheduling of appointments, to tasting and payment. They delivered exactly what they said they would and were a pleasure with which to work. It was not inexpensive, but you certainly get what you pay for. I would definitely recommend them to other brides.

We went for our tasting on the coldest day of the year in February 2015 and were met by 2 of the friendliest people in Mary and Gretchen. From the minute we walked in we knew we were in good hands. As we sat down and began the tasting both of us knew that this was going to be an awesome cake. On the day of the wedding the cake out did our expectations. The design was exactly as was drawn on the day of the tasting. It was so beautiful and elegant with the modern classic look we both were looking for. We hated to cut in to it but did and it tasted awesome. All our guests commented on how well it tasted. We highly recommend that anyone looking for a cake call them and make an appointment.
YUM!!!Reviewed on 5/18/2014 Kristy W
Our wedding cake from Cake Chicago was beautiful and more importantly, delicious!!! The cake tasting process was very easy and fun. We didn't know what design we wanted first, so Mary talked us through the different design ideas. After we figured out what we wanted, Mary was able provide us with a sketch of the cake and suggested areas to improve the design. We were really happy with our cake and would recommend Cake Chicago to others!
We were married 11/26/2016 and we were so very happy with Cake as our wedding cake provider. From our initial tasting to the delivery and set up at our venue, we were impressed with the service and quality and taste of the cake. We chose 2 flavors and they were huge hits! The design of our cake was perfect as well, exactly as we envisioned. Katy, our contact person, was fabulous and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Cake for weddings and any events. We look forward to using them again.
We are so happy we went with Cake-Chicago for our wedding. From the tasting through the wedding cake delivery, Joanne and her team were fabulous. They truly wanted to make our wedding cake exactly what we envisioned. It not only looked beautiful, but it tasted delicious. We received numerous compliments from our guests on the cake. We will definitely be using Cake-Chicago for our future celebrations.
I didn't know I could get this excited from cake! The cake tasting experience was incredible. Joanne is truly an artist at her craft. We had a blast putting together a unique & gourmet cake option for our guests to enjoy. I didn't think a cake tasting was necessary when we started however I"m so much happier for having done it, and I think our guests are, too! I would absolutely recommend doing the tasting & using cake chicago to anyone getting married in the chicago area!
Besides our cake being delicious, cake-chicago came up with a beautiful original design for it. All throughout the process they were a joy to work with.
Cake-Chicago did an amazing job on our wedding cake. It was so fun to design with the staff and they were so thorough with every detail. My husband and I are not super creative so it was great that Cake-Chicago was able to let us pick and choose different elements from their past cakes to let us design the wedding cake of our dreams. Not only was the cake design beautiful but the taste was incredible! We received so many compliments on the actual taste which was more important to us than the look. We loved our cake so much that we are going to enjoy our cake top for as many days as we can and then order a replica top for our one year anniversary. It is that good! Highly recommend the tiramisu and double fudge filling ;]
The experience was amazing. The work done on my cake was explicit. Loved working with them.
Joanne and team are amazing! I found a picture of a cake I loved and she recreated it even better than the picture! I am beyond impressed with her artistic abilities and am so glad I got to work with her. Thanks Cake team!
This will literally be the best cake that you'll have in your ENTIRE life. Our wedding cake was absolutely amazing and guests from the wedding are still talking about it. We were getting married at The Drake, so wanted to incorporate a gold color to our cake and the selections that Cake had were amazing and allowed us to create a beautiful gold rimmed cake for our guests. The selections for the wedding cake are amazing and creative. We couldn't come to an agreement on which flavors to choose, so ended up with a chocolate fudge & creme brulee cake and then an almond pound cake with raspberry preserve and lemon curd. BOTH tasted amazing. The staff was also incredibly helpful with selecting a topper and stand for our cake. Seriously, I can't wait until next year to try the cake all over again!
Cake was beautiful and delicious!
I had a wonderful experience with cake chicago. After reviewing all of the wedding cakes they have previously created, I wanted to combine certain elements of a few of them. They immediately made me feel comfortable with my decisions and created a sample for me of the frosting design to see what the end result would look like. It was impeccable and beautiful. I am very pleased I went with cake chicago not only for the cake design, but because the cake was delicious. The tasting beforehand was great, and they allowed me to bring along several family members. Our guests at the wedding raved about the cake about how tasteful and elegant it was. I would highly recommend working with cake chicago!
We were so happy with the way our wedding cake turned out! From the tasting to the wedding day, Cake made the process so easy! Our cake was exactly what we wanted, tasted delicious, and looked gorgeous! Highly recommend Cake Chicago!
Our cake was exactly what we envisioned. They did a phenomenal job. Not only did it look great but it was delicious!
Hands down the best wedding cake EVER! It was one of the best cakes ever! Cake Chicago was super easy to work with, so accomodating and responsive. The cake tho - wow! Guest after guest came up to us telling us that this was the best wedding cake/best cake they had ever had. We had guests hunting down waiters trying to get a second or third slice! Cannot wait to continue enjoying the leftovers and we will definitely look forward to our first anniversary, knowing that we have a spectacular cake to eat!!
Katy, Joanne and the rest of the Cake team were AMAZING to work with! We had so much fun at our tasting, and our cake turned out beautifully. We could not have been happier with our experience.
Thank you to the Cake-Chicago Team! Our cake was not only delicious but beautiful which our guests raved about. The delicate coconut and vanilla cake with the chocolate filling was a great choice. The design was simple, but the inspiring words were truly personal, making it more than just another beautiful wedding cake. It was a pleasure to meet you all. From the moment we walked into Cake we felt we were in the right place. You made it easy and definitely fun. . We look forward to an occasion to order from Cake in the near future...or do we really need an excuse!
AMAZING. They took our vision and made it even more incredible than we could have imagined. Such an amazing company to work with. We felt very valued there and every suggestion we made was accommodated. The flavors were amazing and the service was incredible.
My mouth is watering just thinking about our wedding cake! From the beginning, the ladies of Cake were incredibly professional and helpful. They were extremely responsive to emails and happy to answer any and all questions this busy bride had! Although the availability of “taste test” hours were fairly limited in regards to a working couple’s schedule, they were incredibly accommodating and were able to send the entire taste test kit to our home to do on our own time. All of the choices and combinations of cake and frosting were so incredible, it was hard to make a choice! Once we decided on the perfect combo, we also sent them a picture of a cake that we’d like ours to look like. When I walked into the venue the day of the wedding, I could not believe how perfect it looked! I nearly cried at its beauty in the middle of our decorated wedding hall. Not only did it look incredible, but the number of compliments we received were tremendous. Thank you, Cake, for the wonderful addition to our wedding day! We cannot wait to eat another piece on our anniversary ☺
We worked with Cake-Chicago as part of our wedding at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel, but like so many other reviewers have said, I wouldn't have gone with anyone else after my amazing experience with them! Joanne and Katy at Cake-Chicago made our tasting a breeze and they were incredibly helpful in designing our cake and making our dream cake become a reality! They also helped me to pull off a surprise groom's cake for my husband with a New York Giants and Rangers theme! Cake-Chicago emailed me constantly to make sure I knew exactly where they were at in the progress, and all of my guests raved about the cake the next day! I will be a loyal customer of Cake-Chicago for years to come!
A wedding cake from cake-chicago was included with our package at the Renaissance Blackstone, but after my experience with them, I'd recommend them for any cake (wedding or not). During our planning and tasting session, we looked through some inspiration photos of other wedding cakes to hone in on the designs we liked. We then tried different flavor combinations and ended up having two different combos in our wedding cake. cake-chicago took care of coordinating directly with the Blackstone for delivery, set-up, etc., so it was nice to have one less thing to think about during a busy weekend. Our guests raved about how great the design was and how delicious both cake options were. I absolutely plan to use cake-chicago again for any other cake needs in the future.
Joanne was absolutely lovely and she made choosing our cake flavors super easy. Katy was also helpful when it came to figuring out our cake design and was easy to communicate via email. The cake turned out beautiful and our guests all had stellar things to say about it.
The consultation to design my cake was so quick and easy! Not only did my cake look BEAUTIFUL but it was DELICIOUS. In fact, my dad loved it so much he stole my moms making her ask for another piece!
I cannot say enough about cake-chicago! My husband and I got married at The Drake and they use cake-chicago so we didn't have much of a choice. I was not disappointed and am glad I didn't have to shop around because I would not have found a better place for our wedding cake if I tried. First, communication was super-easy; I always received responses to my emails within a couple hours and they were super-accomodating when I decided to make a design change two weeks prior to our wedding. Furthermore, the cake tasting was an absolute blast- perhaps one of my favorite parts of the planning process! We sampled several options and they were all delicious- if we could have had three different cakes with different flavors, we would have! Finally, and most importantly, our cake was amazing! Not only was it beautiful on the outside, and exactly as I envisioned it, it was beautiful on the inside! The colors of the layers looked amazing and several of our guests commented that they'd never seen such a beautiful cake inside and out. As for the taste, it was absolutely delicious and very moist! We've all had dry wedding cake before, but that cake was not from cake-chicago. One of my girlfriends is a beachbody coach and she doesn't eat sweets- ever. One of our friends who was at her table came up to me later in the evening and commented on how delicious our cake was and that the beachbody coach completely devoured her cake as everyone watched in awe! I also love that we were given the option of doing a top tier and freezing it until our one year anniversary or getting a new, fresh top tier in a year. We opted for the fresh cake and I can't wait for our one year anniversary so we can enjoy cake-chicago's masterpiece again!
