Superb - Can't Go Wrong with Zingerman'sReviewed on 6/23/2015 Marissa A
There are not enough adjectives to describe Zingerman's quality. I thought I was set on a local bakery for my wedding cake until a tasting event at our wedding venue. I immediately fell in love with the Hummingbird cake and cream cheese frosting - it was a game changer! We set up an appointment with a wedding cake coordinator. The meeting went very well and we thought we were set on flavors, but another game changer - they sent us home with a box of samples! We opted for a hummingbird layer, an almond pound cake layer with cherry filling and allover buttercream frosting. It was the most delicious cake I've had and a beautiful accompaniment to our wedding. The cake was beautiful, delivery prompt and staff knowledgeable. They even left a present for us (2 mugs) at our gift table during their delivery! I would highly recommend Zingerman's.
Beautiful and DELICIOUS wedding cakes!Reviewed on 7/14/2014 Andrea L
This was the best vendor I had on my wedding day. The cake was better than I had imagined both in design and in flavor. SO MOIST and delicious. The staff was also very helpful and punctual on checking up with me to make sure I was still happy with my order. Also loved the surprise gift they left at our wedding! Really made me feel appreciated as a customer. :)
Zingerman's Wedding CakeReviewed on 1/15/2014 Valerie I
Even though Zingerman's is a large and thriving company in Ann Arbor, they provided individualized and attentive services. They have delicious and unique cake flavors and welcomed me back on 3 different occasions to pick up samples of various buttercream/cake flavor combinations. The cake was as visually stunning as it was delicious and will certainly be memorable to our guests! We're still enjoying the cake leftovers 2 weeks later!
Amazing cake and favors for our guests! The team at Zingerman's was great with designing what we had pictured and working within our budget! Obviously, an easy decision to choose Zingerman's!
This was the easiest decision that we made when it came to planning. My husband attended Michigan and Zingerman's was a place that he frequented, so it had to be on our list. In the beginning we were worried about price point but they turned out to be such a solid financial decision. It was affordable and we got so much for our money. Alyce was friendly and drew out a beautiful cake during our consultation. I later reached out about adding on a surprise grooms cake and they made a piece of art. We had three flavors of cake and everyone loved it. We also had two GF folks and Zingerman's accommodated them with no issues and made sure they were not left out of the fun. The cakes were truly a staple of our event and I would recommend this baker to everyone. I cannot wait to indulge in more cake on our first anniversary. Thank you, Zingerman's for making our day so special and amazing.
The pastry chef from our venue quit at the last minute, and so we decided to go with Zingerman's Bakehouse for our groom's cake, wedding cake, cupcakes, and pies. It ended up being the best decision we made! The staff were very friendly at all of our consultation appointments. They listened to our ideas and offered their expertise as well. They gave us lots of free samples, and even special ordered flavors that we wanted to try. Everything was delivered and presented beautifully and the desserts were completely gone by the end of the night! Overall, we were delighted with Zingerman's Bakehouse and can't wait to use them again in the future!
This was one of the easy decisions while planning our wedding. It goes without saying that the cake/cupcakes were incredible, but what really made the experience exceptional was the staff. They were so kind and attentive. They answered all of my questions with ease, and they were able to give me exactly what I wanted. Sami and Aly were the ones that I worked with the most, and they were both amazing. I highly recommend!
My husband and I are frequent Zingerman's customers- both at the deli and bakehouse. We love that they are a local business, excel in customer service, and use the highest quality ingredients. We did some other cake tastings in the Ann Arbor area, thinking that a Zingerman's wedding cake would not fit in our budget. Needless to say after cake tasting at other bakeries, we couldn't find the right fit for us and ended up at Zingerman's Bakehouse. We never looked back! Their cakes are seriously THE BEST, and we were amazed by the value. Their pricing is very competitive, and we felt the design, quality, and taste of their wedding cakes far exceeded any of the other places we tried. We felt at ease throughout the process, and they make multiple last minute adjustments for us. We received so many compliments from our guests saying it was the best wedding cake they had ever had! We also added a small gluten free cake at the last minute for some of our guests and appreciated the flexibility of Zingerman's Bakehouse to make that happen. We can't say enough good things about our experience with the Bakehouse and would highly recommend them! We are looking forward to our one year anniversary because we saved the top tier of our wedding cake and can't wait to enjoy it!
I am someone who hates wedding cake -- I actually didn't even want to order one until we tried Zingerman's. Their cakes were so different and so delicious that I instantly fell in love. Everyone we worked with at the bake shop was so easy to work with and let us order as many flavors and fillings as we wanted. The cake was amazing! We ordered more than enough and every single piece was gone by the end of the night! You cannot go wrong with a cake from Zingerman's!
Very professional. Super helpful even when we had some last minute changes needed. Highly recommend
Zingerman's Bakehouse made 3 table cakes for our wedding, and they were delicious and gorgeous!! We had 2 different flavors- cocoa velvet with ginger and chocolate buttercream frostings, and almond pound cake with raspberry buttercream and preserves and vanilla buttercream. Cake is my absolute favorite food, so I was thrilled to have 2 amazing options on our wedding day :).
The smile on my face when I first saw the cake in our venue was one of my most fondest memories on my wedding day. The cake was even more gorgeous then I had imagined. In fact, I barely noticed any of the other decor as the cake stole the show. They created a wonderful purple ombre cake for my wedding at the Henry Ford Museum. Wonderful vendor to work with, amazing cake flavors to select from, and they sum up the slogan of Pure Michigan perfectly. Zingerman's Bakehouse will not disappoint!!
Amazing Wedding CheesecakeReviewed on 11/18/2015 Rebecca G
We aren't huge cake fans so we didn't want to buy a cake. The Bakehouse worked with us to create a double stacked cheesecake that they frosted and we decorated with flowers. The pictures are gorgeous. They also provided our wedding pies (chocolate chess was hands down the favorite).
Yum!!Reviewed on 6/28/2015 Brianna K
Best cake we've ever had - Our guests absolutely loved it too! The cake turned out beautiful and exactly what we wanted!!! The whole experience, from cake testing to delivery, was amazing!!
Perfect across the boardReviewed on 8/05/2014 Marissa F
As an Ann Arbor native, Zingerman’s is both one my standards for food excellence and one of my favorite places to eat. I’d had Bakehouse treats many times before, but never tried their wedding cake, so I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect when I went in for our consultation. That said, the entire staff went above and beyond my expectations in every way, from our first consultation to designing our cake to the product they delivered to our wedding. My now-husband and I went in for our first consultation with a couple of ideas of what we wanted on our cake, including what we thought was a somewhat complicated symbol for the middle tier. They immediately took our ideas and drafted a perfect design on the first try, complete with a perfect rendering (and eventual execution) of the symbol. In addition to the design being perfect, the taste of all the samples, and our cake on the day itself, was absolutely delicious. I can’t say enough good things about the Zingerman’s Bakehouse wedding cake team and their confections.
Delicious and Beautiful!Reviewed on 7/01/2014 Lauren A
The Bakehouse did an amazing job turning my idea into the cutest cake and cupcakes that tasted like heaven!
Wedding CakeReviewed on 6/25/2014 Jocelyn P
Our wedding cake was amazing. We had Raspberry and white chocolate filling with buttercream cake and it was a huge hit, everyone loved it.
Delicious but a bit priceyReviewed on 10/15/2013 Julia W
For our wedding, we opted for a small two-tier cake from Zingerman's to cut and serve to the bridal party and immediate family (~35 people). We got the hummingbird cake with buttercream frosting and it was insanely delicious. The decoration was exactly what we wanted - rustic white frosting decorated with a few fresh flowers. We had a monogram incorporated into a lot of our stationary for the wedding that I gave Zingerman's a picture of and they made a gumpaste version for our cake topper! Zingerman's has a lot of great touches that make their customer service awesome. You get a ton of cake samples at your tasting and the staff is always super friendly. When they delivered the cake they also left us a wedding gift - two cute branded mugs and a card! My only dissatisfaction was that the cake seemed a bit pricey to me - $200 for hardly any decoration and to serve 35 people. That's why we ended up going with Costco sheetcake for the rest of our guests and that went over surprisingly well with them!
Amazingly Good Cakes!Reviewed on 9/16/2013 Andrea J
I chose Zingerman's Bakehouse for our wedding cake and it was amazing! It is the best wedding cake I have ever tasted. The design of the cake was very intricate and required a lot of hand piping, but it turned out beautiful. I could not have been more pleased!
LOVE!Reviewed on 9/02/2013 Danielle P
We loved our cake! It was absolutely delicious, absolutely gorgeous, and absolutely what we were looking for! The staff at Zingerman's can't be beat. They were unexceptionally friendly and professional even when we needed extra samples because we couldn't settle on a flavor and even when we completely redesigned the look during our final consultation. Just the best! Admittedly, you pay a bit more, but it's worth the splurge.
WOWReviewed on 6/27/2013 Vila K
There is nothing I can say but WOW! My cakes where amazing!!! They tasted great too! I honestly couldn't have picked a better vendor to have done our wedding cake. In all honesty I didn't even research wedding cake vendors I knew I wanted Zimmerman's to do it! They did an amazing job on the star wars themed grooms cake! You guys have to give them serious consideration! Idk how to upload photos to this thing so I added a link where you can see our cakes in a blog they did! It's so cool http://www.zingermansbakehouse.com/wedding-cakes/cake-blog/
Beautiful CakeReviewed on 11/20/2012 Judy G
I gave the cake designer a picture of the cake I wanted...she created it to the exact specifications. It was beautiful. I chose an almond pound cake that was a bit too thick, but other than that...it was marvelous and great customer service. happy bride!!
Unique FlavorsReviewed on 11/13/2012 Laura F
My husband & I don’t necessarily agree on cake flavors, so I love all the options that Zingerman’s was able to provide. When we couldn’t quite pick out our final flavor choices after our initial taste testing, they provide us some cupcakes with additional flavor combinations for us to try at a later date. The decoration/design of the cake was transferred flawlessly from paper to real life and our cake turned out absolutely gorgeous. In all my interactions with Zingerman’s everyone acted very professional. They also sent along a card & a small gift to the reception site which I thought was a thoughtful touch! I really appreciate all the extra effort Zingerman’s went to in order to make my experience great!
Best cake everReviewed on 7/24/2012 Kelli S
We were not planning on having a wedding cake, until we tasted Zingerman's cake. Both my husband and I didn't really like cake, often finding it dry. However, we tasted the cake from Zingerman's and changed our minds. It was so tasty! The service was extremely friendly and they designed my cake perfectly! I highly recommend Zingerman's Bakehouse for your cake needs. (I would also check out some of their other departments!)
Best brownie bite favors!Reviewed on 6/12/2012 Jenny K
I would give Zingerman's 6 stars if I could! Not only were their brownie bites a big hit, but the coordinators I worked with were extremely friendly, responsive and went the extra mile to make things easier on us - we sent them the packaging for the favors and printed stickers and they packaged everything up for us, tied the ribbons and had them sent directly to our reception venue 2 days prior to the wedding!
