I want to start by saying the cake we had tasted amazing! We had also ordered mini king cakes for each of our guest which also tasted great! The problem I had was communication. I’m not sure if it was at fault of the bakery or The Knot. Something I’m sure could have taken one or... Read More two emails or phone calls took MULTIPLE. I got a simple two tiered cylinder style cake that was gold spackle royal icing, sitting on top of a gold king cake. No decorations, simple elegant that’s all I wanted. Some how in all the emails and 3 to 5 phone calls they missed the mark. When I arrived at the venue they had done the two top tiers like I had asked, the king cake it sat on was a traditional king cake with purple and green, mask and beads. Not what I had ever once asked for. So when I went to look at it closer I also noticed the cake was off center and leaning. I did contact them after the wedding and they did make up for their mistake with compensation. This bakery has amazing tasting cakes just be very clear and specific with the instructions you give them on the design of your cake, especially if your having a destination wedding and cant go to the bakery like me.

Very solid option for your wedding cakes! We got our groom's cake from Gambino's & asked to make it look like a huge fish! It looked great!
