I got married in Kansas City after only living here for about a year, so I relied heavily on website reviews, and in-person meetings to choose my vendors. I happened upon Mary with Cardinal Cake Company and am so lucky that I did! Our initial meeting and cake tasting was... Read More incredible- she brought a variety of samples, and it was definitely my husband's favorite part of the whole wedding planning process! We didn't need to meet with any other cake vendors after Mary, because her prices were so reasonable for the quality of cake she makes. She was very easy to work with, and we chose to do multiple flavors for the cake because we couldn't just choose one. She also designed the cake based off of pictures that I showed her from Pinterest. The portions were also large enough for guests to have seconds, and leftovers for our family. We couldn't have been happier with how it all turned out!

Being the mother of the bride, I worried about whether all the details would come together. But no worries, Mary made the cake the absolute centerpiece of the wedding. She was so easy to work with, took care of all the details, and the cake tasted amazing. We had several... Read More different flavors and we only had about 8 pieces of cake left at the end of the night. I'm pretty sure people tasted every one of them. I will be using her again soon !!!

Mary did an incredible job with our wedding cake! From the very beginning, Mary was incredibly sweet and accommodating. She worked with us so well and was very patient with us as we had a few extenuating circumstances that made booking difficult. The tasking was an absolute...

From the minute we met Mary we knew the Cardinal Cake Company was the perfect match. Of course, after our tasting we were 100% sure. Excellent service from day one. We had both cakes & cupcakes. All different flavors. We had 4 of the smaller round cakes. . .traditional... Read More white, peaches & cream, state fair apple & of course red velvet! All were beautifully decorated and we used my parents cake topper from 1946. We also had cupcakes. . .strawberry cream & lemon-blueberry. Mary setup our table and took extra special care of our precious old cake topper. Mom was thrilled when she saw it. Mary made our day so special. EVERYTHING was incredibly yummy. Our family & guests are still commenting on how delicious it was and how pretty our cake/cupcake table looked. We made sure everyone could try all the flavors!

We got our wedding cake form Cardinal Cake Company. We were very happy with their service and the result! Before the wedding we scheduled an appointment for a cake tasting and all their flavors were delicious. We had a few pictures with us to show her what we wanted and she... Read More understood right away how we want our wedding cake to be. She gave us good advice on the decoration and we loved how it looked at the wedding! The day of the wedding she was there in time to set everything up and everyone loved the cake and how it tasted. We had sugar orchids as decoration and they looked just amazing. We were going to keep them as a keepsake but the venue unfortunately ended up throwing them away. We were so happy when Cardinal Cake Company sent us some sugar orchids they had left for us to keep! We can only recommend them, it was so easy to work with them and we absolutely loved the cake!

Cardinal Cake created a beautiful and delicious cake for my son's wedding. The cake was in the shape of three textbooks. The "covers," "binders," and "pages" of each cake were so amazingly real.

Beautiful Ombre Wedding Cake

Mary at Cardinal Cake Company was a joy to work with from the beginning. Unlike most brides, I had no vision for what I wanted my cake to look like. Mary showed me many options and we browsed through countless examples together until we found an ombre idea that would incorporate... Read More my wedding color! The cake Mary made was even more beautiful than the picture we found! We were able to have each tier be it's own unique flavor and guests loved having options.

I hired Mary to provide a sweets bar for my daughter's bridal shower. We talked many times and exchanged many e-mails finalizing the plans. While I thought everything was under control, I found that not to be the case. She was to deliver everything at noon--she showed up at... Read More 12:50 (10 minutes before the party started) and then asked "am I late?" I ordered two different flavors of cupcakes to be decorated differently to easily tell them apart--that did NOT. She decorated them the same. I ordered two dessert cakes. One lemon/raspberry was good. The other (coconut/key lime) was so crumbly it could not even be cut. I ordered mini wedding cakes to be decorated with pink flowers. She called me the night before to "warn" me about them-told me she wasn't happy with them at all and that she would "make it right" if I wasn't happy. I was shocked when I saw them. They were crooked and leaning, there were no pink flowers AND she decided on her own to change the flavor! Who told her to do that?? I know I didn't. They were supposed to be individually packaged making it easy for guests to take home. That didn't happen either. Based on this performance, I promptly cancelled my order for the groom's cake and wedding party cookie boxes the next day. While she has said she would refund my money for the groom's cake and cookie boxes, she has yet to tell me whether I will get my money back for the mini wedding cakes. I spent over $650 for this dessert bar and was thoroughly disappointed. I would not recommend using this vendor.

I fell in love with pastries and edible pretties when I was 19 and hired as the only cook/baker at a belgium-style tearoom. There I learned many lessons, not the least of which is that beautifully presented yummies can create indelible memories and inspire passion! As I pursued college and a career as a paralegal, my passion took a back seat to priorities. In 2010, after relocating to the Kansas City area, I resumed exploring my passion for confections and pastries. Cardinal Cake Co. opened in 2014. I've been privileged to serve KC families and couples for life's sweetest moments since!
