  • Pros: taste of the cake (SO good!), responsiveness of the owner (by phone - not by email), overall cake tasting & ordering experience / scheduling flexibility Cons: not big deals for me but responsiveness by email, small detail of cake appearance Overall, we really enjoyed our experience in working with Chez Alice. Cake tasting was one of our favorite parts of the wedding planning process. Logistically, it was also easy to work with the bakery since it was part of the package that we had through our venue, Nassau Inn. Matt, the owner, was very accommodating in working around our schedules to make time for our cake tasting. He was also very personable and open to our ideas for the cake design and gave his input to help us come up with a design that we were all on board with. The hardest part about working with Chez Alice was choosing which flavor(s) to go with! We had the option of choosing up to 2 and ended up going with 1, the Framboisier. We got tons of compliments on how g... Read more

  • We had our wedding at the nearby Nassau Inn, and Chez Alice was one of the cake vendors you could choose for the reception. Our meeting and tasting was fun and convenient! It wasn't clear to me how many flavors we could select for our cake, though, so we ended up just going with one flavor. In the chaos of it all, I didn't even think to ask about it! So it might be helpful to ask when you go how many flavors you can choose. We selected a cake from the album that the manager provided during our meeting, which made things easy for everyone because we knew exactly what to expect and they knew exactly what to make! However, they were very flexible and willing to customize the cake for us if needed.

  • First off, Chez Alice makes absolutely delicious cakes! We had the red velvet cake at our wedding and all of our guests raved. Our cake was a very simple buttercream design, but it looked really nice. All in all, I think Chez Alice can be a good wedding bakery option. But if you go with them, it will be incumbent on you to take the initiative to make sure that everything goes smoothly. Their customer service is inconsistent and they aren't always helpful in ironing out logistical details. I had a 4 pm wedding (ceremony and reception at the same venue) and my florist needed time to decorate the cake with live flowers. Chez Alice knew all of this, but when I called to confirm details, they told me that they would be delivering the cake at 3 pm. I'm not sure how they thought that would be a good idea. I asked if they could deliver it earlier and they VERY reluctantly agreed to deliver it 1 pm. They actually showed up around 11:30, before my DOC had arrived. This created some problems. ...

  • My family has been buying cakes from Chez Alice for a decade, so when it was time to buy a wedding cake I knew exactly who I wanted to do it. Chez Alice has so many different interesting cakes available, and they can do decorations as complex or as simple as you'd like. Matt is absolutely great to work with, and we got many compliments on how good the cake tasted!

  • The cake was delicious. Ordering it was the easiest thing we've done during wedding planning. The delivery was free to our venue. We ordered plain white sponge cake to allow our florist to decorate it. The filling had two types of mousse; chocolate and berries. It was the most delicious cake I have ever tried! It was much tastier than the samples in the cafe. It was not too sweet or too fatty. Just perfect balance of texture and flavor! We saved the top, but we ate it right after we came back from the honeymoon. We were dreaming about that cake! We will be ordering the same one for all our future anniversaries:)

  • I don't know where to begin...the cake was the best cake I have ever eaten! We ordered the black and white cake and ordered with ribbon on each tier and a floral cake topper. It was beautiful and delicious! Although we brought the top tier of the cake home "to freeze", we have already eaten it. It was that good!

  • The cake was delicious, and looked amazing. I gave them a photo from a magazine, and it looked exactly like the photo. Plus, they don't charge for delivery to select venues that they work with often, such as my venue, the Cranbury Inn. We had a great experience - I felt that I didn't have to worry about anything, and that was the case.

  • Our cake needed to be small, only feeding about 10 people. I wanted a 2 tier cake so we could save the top half for our 1 year anniversary. They listened to what I needed and made me a beautiful cake, but the best part is the incredible freshness and taste. The triple chocolate mousse is to die for. I highly recommend Chez Alice for all your cake needs.

  • Our wedding cake was fantastic. It looked great and it was delicious! Chez Alice was part of our package at the Nassau Inn. Because we are major Food Network junkies we thought we wanted the fancy fondant cake. Note to all of you: Fondant is gross. It doesn't actually taste good. We got a smooth buttercream cake (which was awesome) and it looked like fondant without the weird texture and questionably taste! We picked a picture from one of their multiple books. It was like nothing we had every seen, and we just loved it! In the end our cake wasn't an exact replica of the picture. It was even better! Also, they were so accommodating about doing our tasting. Our car broke down on the way to the tasting and they let us come in early the next morning before the bakery was even open so we could do it then. We were so surprised at how GOOD the cake was. I would definitely recommend them whether or not you a having your wedding at the Nassau Inn.

  • The cake from Chez Alice was by far the best wedding cake I have ever had. I had many guests come up to me and tell me how great the cake was. There was also so much left over that we provided cake to everyone at the bar at the after party. We chose the carrot cake, a chocolate cake, and a vanilla cake with strawberries. Each layer was a different flavor, and they tasted way better than I could ever describe them. The cake was also included with the Nassau Inn package, which made it very easy, and one less thing that we needed to worry about. We showed up for the tasting, ate them all, then had a beautiful cake on our wedding day.

  • I was very unhappy with the wedding cake I received from Chez Alice. When I arrived at our reception, i was horrified to see that the top of the cake was white, but the bottom was tan. Add to that, the tan frosting was applied very sloppily. I could not understand why they would put tan frosting on an all white wedding cake? It was so ugly that I couldn't stand to look at it. I don't know anyone who would think that a half white, half tan wedding is attractive. I cannot recommend this bakery because they ruined our wedding cake.

  • My cake was delicious and so noy like any other wedding cake I had ever tasted. I actual detest cake and ate this one. My cake was four layers, two of them were carrot and two were hazelnut pave. They also decorated my cake to match my color scheme, which added that personal touch not often seen in most wedding cakes. Our only concern was that one guest said there cake was frozen. Wedding cakes are generally made days in advance and then frozen until the day of. Not really sure if this was just a disgruntled guest or factual. My piece was perfect.

  • The cake was DELICIOUS! Each tier was a different flavor, and everyone enjoyed it very much. However, communication was not always prompt with the company, and the cake that we ordered had a different appearance when it came. It was a simple mistake, and it still looked beautiful, but if you use this vendor, just be sure to be VERY clear as to what you want, and make sure to receive everything in writing!
