  • We had our reception at Smithville Inn and Bakeworks is the bakery they make you use. Neither of us really like wedding cake so we decided we wanted to have brownies. At first, Amanda was a little hesitant about a brownie cake, thinking it wouldn't come out very well or would be very heavy etc. When we met up with her though, she thought of using brownie bombs! It was a perfect solution. They did individual brownie bombs, iced in either dark chocolate or white chocolate (creating a black and white effect) tiered in the shape of a wedding cake. They were delicious!! They pulled it off really well, considering it was something they had never done before. They decorated it with fresh flowers from our florist and it looked so pretty. It was exactly the look I was going for. The only bad part about doing something unique like this was that there was a $2 per person upgrade charge : ( Amanda was very nice but not always the best about retuning emails.

  • Our wedding cake was absolutely beautiful. It was vanilla, with butter cream icing and chocolate/raspberry ganache in the center. It was definitely one of the best cakes I have ever tasted.

  • Bakeworks was amazing!!!! After tasting the cake that our wedding venue served, we decided last minute that we need to hire someelse to do our wedding cake! Amanda at Bakeworks was AMAZING! We set up an appointment to meet with her where we got to taste all of the fabulous cakes that they make (this was by far my favorite part of the entire wedding)! She listened patiently to myself and my fiance describe what we wanted, and made us the yummiest most beautiful cake! It was exactly what we had imagined and tasted even better! I highly recommend Bakeworks and Amanda for any cake you may need! They were spectacular!!!

  • The ladies at Bakeworks were so helpful and listened to what I wanted and managed to create a gorgeous and delicious wedding cake with beautiful cascading flowers. They were so easy to work with and I didnt have to worry at all that the cake would be there. Their pricing is very reasonable!

  • They were very professional and we were very pleased with the beauty and taste of the cake. They even called a few days before to touch base with me and give me the peace of mind that they were on target.

  • Where do I begin. My cake was one of my favorite parts of my wedding. I walked into Bake WOrks with a million ideas and pictures and the staff helped me narrow my search for the perfect cake to one that I will never forget. We had canoli cake with cream cheese icing and it was to die for. We still go back and get a cake for our anniversary to this day!

  • Our cake was included with our catering. We showed up ready to discuss design and flavor options but soon discovered everything had an extreme up-charge that was not at all worth the price. Some of the flavors were good but none were excellent. They were kind enough to provide me with a gluten free small cake for me since I am gluten free but they admitted it was from a box mix and was not very good at all. None of our guest felt the cake was very good. But it was included so what can you really expect.

  • Seriously, the best cake I've ever had. All of my guests said the same thing. We chose a 3 tier cake for 100 people. layers of vanilla and chocolate cake with chocolate patry filling. We chose a buttercream icing instead of fondant. The cake was AMAZING. Their buttercream is the smoothest and creamiest I have ever had and that chocolate pastry filling is to die for. We actually wanted chocolate ganash originally, until we tried this! The buttercream was iced completely smooth, not one mistake. We had a black ribbon around each tier that was flawlessly placed on and my flowers and cake topper looked awesome. The price is high, which almost chased me away. However, after MANY tastings at other shops with lower prices, the quality WAS NOT THE SAME. It's your wedding, go with the best in the area, and that's The Bake Works! P.S. I think we are going to eat our top tier now instead of waiting, it was so delicious!!! LOL

  • The Bake Works is amazing!!! Our wedding cake was gorgeous AND delicious!!! We were so happy with it and we also used them for the Groom's cake-WOW!!! is all I have to say. The request was for the cake to be a cannoli cake in the shape of my husband's 1975 classic mini cooper. They did not disappoint, it was amazing, looked perfect and wow'ed all of our guests! We will definitely use them again, and highly recommend their services.

  • We chose two flavors for our cake. The display cake was almond cake with strawberry buttercream, and we had sheet cakes in the back that were chocolate chip cake with chocolate ganache. Both were delicious, and they made enough to serve huge portions to all our guests. So big win on flavor and portion size. The only thing that tainted my experience was the fact that they couldn't (or wouldn't?) find a way to put the cake on a cake pedestal that I had bought, even though I expressed multiple times that I hated the look of the foil-wrapped cake board. So if aesthetics aren't too important to you, I'd say The Bake Works is awesome. But if they are, consider going to a bakery that is more flexible in how the cake is constructed.
