“Emergency Birthday Cake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

In Key West with friends from Ireland whose daughter turned 4 today. We needed a birthday cake that had to be chocolate with pink frosting in two hours. The team at Key West Cakes managed to produce one the best cakes we ever had to the exact specification on time. All the more remarkable because Key West is not known for on time performance. The people were great and the 4 year old was all smiles.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Don't know why you would review this place badly as the cupcakes are out of this world!!! First off they are colossal!! The cake is super fluffy and moist! The icing is creamy and decadent! Last but not least the taste is amazing!! If you like cake go you won't regret it!!

“Too sweet for me”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I got four cupcakes from Key West Cakes. One, the Key Lime, was out of this world. The cake was moist and the key lime filling was light, airy and oh so tasty. I also got a chocolate coconut, red velvet and the Dreamsicle. With all three of these I found the cake to be a little dry and the frosting and filling to be not creamy and lush but rather heavy and way too sweet. I love cupcakes and just one of these gave me a major sugar rush. Maybe it was just a bad day.

We are sorry our cupcakes were too sweet for you, That is something we don't really ever hear. American cakes and icing as a rule are sweet, that is to be expected when you eat a cupcake. Our key lime cupcake didn't have any icing on it, just powdered sugar and a key lime filling. Maybe you should stay away from American buttercream.

“So hard to choose...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Stopped in and was faced with an array of cupcakes loaded with mile-high frosting. Everything looked so delicious. Staff was friendly and provided a plate, napkin, and fork to eat there. The place has cute bistro tables and chairs with pink and crystal chandeliers over each table. Very cute place, reasonably priced and baked goods are perfect for that sugar fix! Yum!

“Great Birthday Carrot Cake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Coming from Utah, I needed to arrange to have a birthday cake ready for a Sunday. Even though Key West Cakes was not open on Sunday, they did deliver! Everything was exactly as ordered - a great tropical designed carrot cake. Asked to serve 40 and it was large enough for 60. It was the best I have had! Trust Key West Cakes with any occasion, they will provide everything you agree too.
