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... Read More blast and some of the best cake I have ever had. Mary absolutely delivered on the day of the wedding and gave us the most beautiful cake I could have imagined. We are so happy with the results. I would highly recommend Mary and Cardinal Cakes for any wedding or special event. You won't be disappointed!

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...

Cardinal Cake Co. was my first cake tasting. After trying all of the unique flavors, fillings, and icings, I knew this was the cake I wanted.

Mary made our wedding cake and our grooms cake last week. Not only were they both absolutely gorgeous cakes, they were DELICIOUS! We got rave reviews from our guests.

Overall, the cake was amazing!! It tasted amazing and looked just how we had imagined. Mary is extremely nice and was able to answer my questions when I was able to get in touch with her. One downfall is that we had not been able to get in touch with Mary until less than a month... Read More before our wedding, which was a little unnerving. All in all, I highly recommend her if you are wanting a top quality cake that is beautifully made.

Mar y Connolly, the owner of Cardinal Cake Company, is very difficult to work with. We had put down a $550 deposit, which was half of the cost of the wedding cake. The wedding was unfortunately cancelled. Mary would not refund the deposit, but said she would issue a "cake... Read More credit". This was absolutely a lie! When trying to use this credit, she wouldn't call me back, after repeatedly trying to contact her. I had even called the Better Business Bureau to report her unethical business practices. The BBB had no luck with a response from her.. She did make me a $60 cake that was so dry we threw most of it away. She is the only employee at her business, and she books too many weddings on any given weekend. She obviously must freeze the cakes, rather than make them fresh. She has zero customer service skills. She is nice during the sales pitch, then turns into, the Cake Bitch!

Our cake was absolutely perfect. And y'all won't even believe how many guests commented on how good it was! We had lemon raspberry, chocolate and plain wedding cake.

So excited that we have our top tier to eat this week :) She is so kind and gracious to work with- you won't be disappointed!

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!
