In northern NJ this is such a good deal!!! The cake was delicious!!! It was not exactly what we had discussed but for the price and how good it was I didn't even care. Cake was $700 and $100 for delivery.

I used Palermo Bakery for my wedding cake because they work closely with the wedding venue I used. I was skeptical with the choices we were going to get. But was very surprised with all the choices that we were given. Palermo was very friendly to deal with and worked with us to find the perfect cake! The end result was beautiful and Delicious too!

My venue, the Imperia, uses Palermo's for the included wedding cake. Great money saver!! In the planning stage, my husband & I went for our cake tasting. It was amazing!!! We were given like 24 different slices of cake, each with a different filling. They were all so yummy! They also had us look through photos of cakes that are included with our package with the venue and there was A LOT to choose from! I thought they would have about three designs to choose from, but it was the complete opposite! I got the exact design I was looking for and they were more than happy to customize it just the way I wanted it. When we left, we were happy, high on sugar, and excited to see our wedding cake! When I saw the cake the day of, it was amazing! Just the way I wanted it! And most importantly, it tasted AMAZING!!!!!!! I did the customary freezing of the top tier and cannot wait to eat it a year from now or maybe just go back to Palermo's & order a copy cat cake and enjoy a delicious fresh one! :)

Delicious and dazzling wedding cake!

Palermo Bakery provided such a stunningly beautiful cake for our wedding day at The Olde Mill Inn! It not only looked unique and gorgeous, but it tasted amazing too!! We had a delightful experience meeting with their staff in Ridgefield Park, trying various cakes and flavors, and selecting the design of our cake. I absolutely recommend Palermo Bakery for anyone looking to get the perfect wedding cake!

BEST wedding cake ever!

Palermo's is awesome! When we went for our tasting, there were so many options to choose from (all of which were included in our package from our venue, The Park Savoy). Every single flavor was absolutely delicious...and my husband and I really aren't cake people to begin with. We couldn't stop eating it during the tasting! Palermo's worked with us to explain everything so there would be no questions, and were able to create the exact design we were hoping for. We received many compliments about how delicious and moist the cake was...and I think it's rare to have your guests actually comment on the cake at the end! :) Would definitely return to Palermo's as all their baked goods looked awesome, and the customer service was superb. Very happy with our decision, and absolutely recommend this bakery to others.

Our cake came complimentary with our venue. Sometimes when you hear "free" you hear "cheap". Not in this case! The cake was amazing! Everyone loved it! And it was so pretty! During the tasting they showed us pictures of basics that you can build off of. I had an idea and they ran with it! Amazing!

My wife and her family are patrons of Palermo Bakery for many years. Her father works in the area, and suggested that inquire about having them make our wedding cake. The wedding venue we chose worked with Palermo in the past, but no longer had a contract with them. After comparing Palermo to the cake that our venue offered, we knew that Palermo was the clear cut choice. Fortunately our venue was kind enough to allow the change, and we were able to order our cake from Palermo. The staff at Palermo were thorough and efficient. They explained everything to us in detail, and made sure that the cake came out exactly as we envisioned. When ordering, they provide samples of the many types of cake/filling that they offer. The cake arrived exactly as described on our wedding day, and was delicious. We highly recommend ordering baked goods from Palermo for any occasion!

Beautiful & Delicious!

Wedding cake was included in our package through the Westmount Country Club, and found that it was the case for most venues that we visited. Palermo's did an amazing job with our cake! My husband and I picked a simple cake, with vanilla buttercream & coconut filling. DELICIOUS! We made our appointment online, and went to their location; it is very busy, but we were given the attention and time that I was expecting for the consultation. I am not sure if I will be able to wait to have the cake on our anniversary, we may just order a mini version of our cake for our 6-month lol

My venue gave me a choice of 4 bakeries and I researched and taste tested every one of them. I chose Palermo Bakery because of the choices in cake flavors and design, professional and knowledgeable staff, and previous bride reviews I read online. I knew exactly what I wanted as far as the design and brought a picture with me to each bakery. Palermo was the only bakery that included everything I wanted without up charging. The woman who helped create my dream wedding cake drew a picture of what I was going to get and made suggestions for what I could add to it. My husband and I left feeling so excited and high on sugar! On our wedding day, the cake was absolutely stunning and even better than we imagined. All of our guests asked us who made the cake because it was so delicious! My husband and I are looking forward to our 1 year anniversary to dig in to the top tier ☺

Excellent cake!

Our venue recommended Palermo's Bakery in Ridgefield Park. We went to the consultation, which conveniently, you can schedule through their website, and were overwhelmed by the styles and flavors they offer couples. We loved the final design and the red velvet cake with cream cheese icing was a HUGE hit and made for awesome cake cutting pictures, too!

Cake tasted great!

Our cake was thru Palermo’s Bakery and it was included in our venue. We got to choose between what options were included and they even let us mix and match pieces of options we liked to make our cake a little unique. I will admit the woman we had for our tasting, while nice seemed to rush us thru the tasting, even though there was no one else there with us tasting or picking out cakes as we were only ones there. And I was worried about what we picked out because we felt rushed we had forgotten that we wanted to add a monogram to the one tier. I emailed her later to add the monogram to our cake and she made the changes for us. I kind of wished we hadn’t been rushed at the tasting so I could have remembered that we actually wanted to add that while we were there so I could see her notes. On our day our cake tasted and looked great. It was almost exactly what we wanted! Thankfully I didn’t notice it until a few days later when someone sent me a picture but our monogram were the wrong initials. Thankfully it didn’t matter to us as our cake still looked and tasted great! And so far no one else has noticed or said anything! In the end the real beauty of our cake was that it was ours and the overall look we wanted. Plus it tasted great!!

Our appointment at Palermo's was last week. We met with our consultant Olga who was simply amazing. She was sweet, polite and made the whole experience wonderful. She helped us pick out and design the perfect cake to fit our theme and ideas. I wish all our vendor experiences are as awesome as this. I highly recommend Palermo's to any bride who wants a beautiful and delicious cake! I would also highly recommend Olga who was a total sweetheart and made the whole experience great. =D

Good product, but limited service...

Palermo's provided the wedding cake and other items for our Viennese hour. When we met with the staff at our catering hall (Bridgewater Manor), we mentioned that my husband-to-be had a dietary restriction that involved dairy and would need a dairy-free cake. Since they weren't providing the cake themselves they told us to talk to Palermo's. Setting up the appointment was easy and the bakery itself is very nice. The person we met with was a little bit less than personable but she tried to help us out with the dairy issue. Unfortunately they were not able to accommodate our request, which made us have to purchase a separate cake for my husband. I understand that this doesn't necessarily make them a bad place to go to (everything was good by the way) but I think for a bakery that supplies so many catering halls with cakes they should be able to accommodate common dietary restrictions.

Palermo's Bakery took great care of us while we were planning our wedding. Our wedding package included the cake, which was going to be created by Palermo's. We arrived there for the tasting appointment and enjoyed ourselves from the first moment. We laughed, we joked, we ate some delicious cake, and left with a design that we knew we would love. We had come in with an image that we liked and were told 'oh sure, we can do that!' It came out perfect, looked fantastic and tasted delicious.

What an Experience!

We went to Palermos for a cake tasting. This was sooo much fun. They treat you as if you are the only bride (and family) around. You have their undivided attention as they go through each part of the order. We looked at a huge selection of cakes and then got to design our own. How many layers, what shape for each layer, type of cake, type of filling (mix and match!)roses, designs, whatever you want. They brought us about 20 slices of cake and we had to taste them all because each had a different filling. The cake was delicious and looked amazing when it was complete.

Good cake!

We used Palermo's for our wedding cake. The cake was delicious, very moist and not sickly sweet. The design we got needed to be decorated (our florist took care of that) so my only note would be that if you don't want to have the cake decorated yourself, you will only have a small number of cakes that can stand on their own aesthetically.

Great Cake!

We had our wedding reception at Seasons Catering Hall in Washington Township, NJ. Included in the package, you received two options for a bakery. My wife and I went to both bakeries for a tasting and based on taste alone Palermo was the best option. Additionally, Palermo offered a wide variety of cake flavors and cake designs. While the staff at Palermo may make you feel rushed on the phone and in person, the cake speaks for itself. Also, remember if the cake is included in the reception package there is no interaction after picking the cake. The cake arrived on time and our guest loved the cannoli filled vanilla cake. The cake is delicious there is nothing more I can really say. We recommend

Highly recommended!!

Palermo Bakery was included with our catering contract at Waters Edge, and they were better than any bakery we would have picked on our own. At our tasting they gave us two huge plates of cakes, and a plate for us to take home to make sure we were happy with our decisions. Since our cake was included, we weren't sure that we would be able to get the unique design we had in mind, but they were able to accommodate our ideas for a minimal additional cost. We are beyond happy with our cake and the friendly staff at Palermo Bakery.
