First of all let me begin by mentioning that I am NOT a cake person. I don't get cakes for any occasion, but it was the easiest choice for our wedding so I gave in. We ordered our wedding cake from here. It was stress free and they delivered. I brought in a photo of a cake I liked and explained my design to them. They were very helpful and gave me no argument at all. When I saw the cake at my reception, it was perfect. Then I tasted it and actually liked it! Yes, that is a big deal to an anti-cake person. They use real ingredients and it doesn't just taste like a sponge soaked in chemicals. They gave us a free cake on our anniversary too!

It was about a week notice and trying to get a simple cake for a graduation. One of us went into the bakery and got no help after 30 minutes if waiting. I called multiple times during business hours with no answer or voice mail or recording. I went online to email hoping for a response and now days later no response.

Because this is the only true, old school bakery left in Albuquerque I have continued to shop there throughout the year for assorted holidays. My order is often large and specific, the cookies and/or cupcakes need to be boxed in groups and delivered to different locations. Every time I place a large order I'm met with an attitude and indifference. Many times the person on the other end of the phone has been rude. I'm chosing a local chocolate shop, Theobroma for all my sweet needs from now on. The baked goods are average so there is really no need to put up with the poor service. It is really too bad. We need another bakery.

I called the day before I needed a cake for a special event and the incredibly kind and helpful woman I spoke to on the phone talked me through what I needed and the price was incredibly reasonable. I live in Los Lunas so I didn't even have to leave the house to get this done. I'm lazy and I loved this. Not only did they do exactly what I needed but they exceeded my expectations by a mile and everyone loved it. It tasted great and looked wonderful. I'm grumpy and picky and they really came through. I have zero complaints about this place and will definitely use again.
