  • Our wedding cake was perfect. We had a design already when we walked into the bakery and the Sheila was more than willing and able to create it. The cake ended up being a little bit expensive but we just couldn't pass it up. We could not be happier that we didn't pass it up though. The cake looked awesome and tasted amazing. Everyone at the wedding commented on how good the cake tasted. we can not wait until our 1 year anniversary so we can eat the rest! If you get a Black Forest Cake, make sure your venue saves you some for later because you will want it!

  • My cake was delicious! We started out with a cake tasting and we ate the whole plate of cake and frosting and went away wanting more. I was curious to know if my wedding cake would taste that great, sometimes things can taste different in larger amounts or such. I wished I had left overs from my wedding though. It was yummy! I had the most compliments on how delicious my cake was and heard people went back for seconds. Most wedding cakes people take a bite out of and push it aside, not mine. I cannot wait for my year anniversary to eat the complimentary cake. Taste was the biggest point for me. The baker was just as good. I had wanted a different from the norm cake and she worked with me to make that happen. Later I had called to change the design of the cake and all went well. She had worked with me on trying to keep within my budget which was really helpful. I didn't feel like it was a bother to her at all. I highly recommend Black Forest Bakery to everyone.

  • Loved our wedding cake vendor, too! Black Forest Bakery was extremely delicious, allowed us to use a different flavor for each layer, and decorated it exactly how we wanted. Our taste test was the most fun. Upon our arrival there was a HUGE plate of all different types of cake and fillings for us to arrange and taste. Then the owner of the bakery sat with us personally to review what the cake would look like, style, and design. We were very pleased and they were extremely affordable!

  • Darlene and her husband are fabulous. They had a delicious assortment of cakes, creams and fruit fillings at the tasting. We wanted a wedding cake that would coordinate with our wine tasting venue so I wanted the grape theme but suttle. They created a cake that was so delicious people were asking for a 2nd slice! We selected a marble cake with bavarian cream and raspberry filling, moist and delicious! One guest liked it so much they went to the their bakery on Monday to order a cake for them with the same fillings. Can't ask for a better compliment than that. The delivery was right on schedule and they are the nicest people to work with. Pam & Scott

  • My mom and I cake-tasted at 3 places before finally going to Black Forest Bakery. When tasting their samples, only one word popped in my head...WOW!!! The cake's smooth texture and heavenly taste is just beautiful by itself! Then, we continued to taste the bavarian fillings and buttercream frosting....just as delicious! After my taste buds were transported to a dream state, I finally came back to reality and realized that my search was complete: I would definitely be ordering my cake from Black Forest. The entire experience was perfect. Darlene is a joy to work with and created the cake just how I envisioned. The cake arrived on time, delicious and gorgeous. And, they gave us a free 1 year anniversary cake which brought back all the wonderful memories of our wedding day. If you go with Black Forest, you will be happy you did.

  • We were thrilled with our Black Forest Bakery experience. We found their tasting set up very helpful and creative, allowing us to mix and match different cakes with different fillings and frostings. Darlene was not only professional, she was also so sweet and excited for us. They did a great job keeping the surprise grooms cake a surprise. The cakes were incredible, not just beautiful but so tasty! Their fondant is awesome. We were blown away by how amazing the topsy turvey wedding cake turned out and how the US Soccer grooms cake looked just like the picture I had given them. We received so many compliments on the delicious cake from our guests. Many people said they had seconds! Black Forest Bakery was a pleasure to work with and made our cakes truly special. We're looking forward to using them again for future events.

  • In all of our tastings, Black Forest was the best! The cake was light, fluffy, and moist. All of the filling and frosting choices were not too sweet. We selected a cake that was not part of thier wedding cake portfolio. The bakery worked with us on making the cake into a three tier cake. It was amazing. Every one of our guests raved at how beautiful and unique the cake was and how delicious it was. We had just enought left over to save for the first anniversary. Our plan is to order the smaller version for our anniversary to share with our family.

  • The cake at Black Forest Bakery is truly delicious and I was really happy with the look of our wedding cake. I didn't research a lot of other bakeries before booking them, and found out later that the price was a bit high. A friend of mine got her wedding cake for about half what I paid and the quality was comparable... Otherwise I was really happy with the outcome though.

  • The people at Black Forest were very nice and great to work with. The cake tasted fantastic! It was really expensive though for what we got. We had a 3 tier chocolate fondandt cake with a light pink trim....that was it....NO flowers, NO decoration of any kind....very, very plain and it was $500 to feed 72 people. If it were up to me, I would have gone else where as there are a lot of other places w/better pricing who would have done the shape I wanted with lots of sugar flowers and cystal decorations...BUT my husband HAD TO HAVE a chocolate cake and this one by far tasted the best.
