Ohhh so good and wonderful service too!

The first time I had a bite, I wanted more! The best cakes on the island for sure. I'm so happy we are getting our wedding cake from here. Thank you!

Our first and only cake tasting took place on 12/1/15 at Key West Cakes during our trip to Key West to meet with our vendors. It was great to try many of the more popular cake flavored with the different fillings and frosting. We were very impressed with the moistness of the cake samples and we are looking forward to...

We spent $450 on a small cake (photo attached). Half of our decorations were missing and the cake crumbled when it was cut. The caterer also couldn't believe it. The owner wouldn't accept any responsibility and wouldn't follow-up with us. Watching a bride cry from disappointment is a horrible experience. Unfortunately that will be a big part of my memory....

We bought our wedding cake from these guys. We pre-paid and arranged delivery to our ceremony on Smather's beach on Sunday 10/25. They never showed up. The delivery guy, Paul, called my wife at 610pm (during our ceremony) and left a voice mail saying he couldn't figure out how to get to the beach. We waited around for an hour... More

In response to your review please read the attached reply to Ginger on the morning of the 27th : “Situations like this are the opposite of what we strive for, and are truly a nightmare for me to hear about. In fact, I believe this is the first time a wedding cake just hasn't made it to the destination, and... More

Most amazing cupcakes. Lots of favors and their cakes are just as incredible. Not to mention their pot pies and other goodies.

Take a deep breath as you walk in the front door and you will think you're in heaven! The aroma of fresh cakes and cookies baking is to die for.
