Chris Janicek is a racist misogynist who has admitted to reprehensible actions without any real apology. There are plenty of other awesome bakeries in Omaha to make your day special!

The titular owner, Chris Janicek, is a sexual predator and racist. He joked about paying to have a staffer of his gang-raped in a group text, called someone the n-word at a party, inappropriately touched a student, and has a history of lewd, ab...
usive, and demeaning behavior.
So, sure, he is a good baker. If you can get past all the awful stuff I just mentioned, all of which is public record.

I am not a big fan of cake but this is the exception to the rule! After we met with Chris, he made us our own sample cake which was enough to feed 6 people!! It was amazing! There were so many options to choose from and he was so easy to work w...
ith. We went with a plan white cake with vanilla in the middle and I am still thinking about how good it was.
The cake was beautiful and pretty close to the picture that I gave him. He is probably the best in town and his cupcakes are to die for as well!!

Chris can make great cakes, but is unreliable and unprofessional. He delivered a sloppy cake that wasn't what we ordered hours late as guests arrived. I'd hate to see how he treats customers that aren't family friends.

Since we were in AZ, my parents met with Chris Janicek to discuss our cake. We went with a very basic idea for our cake! He was able to create exactly what we wanted.
We had no worries that they would have it made exactly as we asked, and t...

The cake was absolutely beautiful and tasted amazing! But Chris is the hardest person to get ahold of. After several weeks of calling, we finally were able to meet with him. A month before the wedding I wanted to confirm my final balance and he...
never called me back so I showed up at his house (where he works) and paid the balance. According to my mother, the cake barely arrived before cocktail hour. So if you are bride that doesn't stress on time management, he is your guy. The cake is worth it!

Chris was truly a gift for us with creating the special "Beachy" themed wedding cake and the most perfect "Sea Turtle" grooms cake... Exactly what the bride ordered! Along with tasting wonderfully, the vision was completed by these cakes!

This is who you call when you want a beautiful cake that will leave your guests raving. We got a lovely three tier art deco inspired lemon/ raspberry cake. The cake was just as lovely as it was delicious and the servings were incredibly generou...
s. We loved having the leftovers after the wedding and can't wait to break out the top tier on our anniversary. We tried the almond/ apricot and lemon/ raspberry and while both were great the lemon raspberry really stood out to us as something different and more memorable. This is a home based business so things aren't run like a typical 9-5 storefront business. If you don't hear from them 5 seconds after you call don't get your panties in a bunch. Chris WILL call you back and everything will come together and it will be beautiful. As a baker myself these are the only cakes in town I'm willing to pay for. Great job!!

Chris worked with me to create a deco inspired cake with herbs, our theme. It was beautiful and most importantly tasted delicious! The samples he gives out are amazing so be sure to get one. It is a little odd that you don't speak with him init...

Wonderful service, great price and best cake ever! Leaving phone messages sometimes feels awkward, but Chris (the baker) comes through in the end. Note: it's best to mail all your details up front so he has them and you can skip phone tag.

ughout the business for his lateness. But I can promise you, he is worth having a little stress about if you're cake is gonna get there on time.
I got to see my cake arrive on my walk up to the isle and it smelled soooo good and looked great.
He does not do typical tastings, but makes small cakes that you take home and there's enough to share with your wedding party and family. I highly suggest the banana cream cake.
I'm glad to share the best kept secret in Omaha.
