I’ve known Anabel for over 10 years. At times she has supplied her outstanding desserts to our restaurants and she has always been consistent in the quality and service she provides. Although we now make our own desserts in house, Take the Cake is always the bakery I call when I need Special Occasion cakes, not only for my friends and family, but when we really want a beautiful, delicious cake for our best customers!

Take the Cake has been supplying The Empire Cafe beautiful and delicious three layer cakes for 15 years.Many of our customers have been buying the same cake for years and when we are out of their favorite cake we can always keep them happy with another cake. Their cakes and service could not be more consistent. We love “Take the Cake”!

As Jonathan’s is to fine food, Anabel and Take the Cake are to great cakes and pies.I cook, Anabel bakes, and wow does she bake. Last week we had a party of 16 call ahead to make sure we had the Coconut Cream Pie in stock before they would book their reservation. Another party came in and ordered their desserts before ordering their entrees to make sure they had the dessert they wanted when they finished dinner.They reserved their dessert!!! Enough said, one cake is better then the next, we love Anabel and Take the Cake and we tell everyone where we get our desserts.

We have used Take the Cake for our restaurant(s) since 2008! Since then we have opened a new concept and continue to use Take the Cake! Take the Cake always delivers on time, quality product and 100% satisfaction which results in satisfied customers for us! Our customers have developed somewhat of a cult following of their favorite desserts from there. I will admit, we experimented and tried other products just to test the market and not only did the customers complain…they ROARED! I personally have not found another product available for restaurants that is even comparable! LOVE YOU GUYS!

Anabel, The cakes were a HUGE hit and success at our meeting last week. Not only did our team of managers go crazy and enjoy, but it seemed when the word got out what Godiva was doing, all the other management teams came by to see if there were any leftovers. Fortunately, there was plenty of cake for many others to enjoy! Your cards and brochures were on the table!

Awesome!!I was looking online for a bakery nearby to make an Italian creme cake for my mother’s birthday and found Take the Cake. Since all the reviews were positive. I did not hesitate to order. The staff were very nice and accommodating. All I can say is the cake was to die for. Everyone at the party loved the cake and kept asking where I ordered it from. I also purchased one of their chocolate cakes they keep available for walk in purchases. It was so rich and tasty. Thank you so much for the awesome job you did on the cake. I will definitely order more cakes from this bakery.

Part of our history. We tried Take The Cake on the recommendation of a good friend. Since the very first time we went there, Anabel and her staff have exceeded our expectations. Over the last 10 years or so, Take the Cake has played a prominent part in every major milestone or celebration or family has had. I look forward to the day that Anabel makes the wedding cake for the same sweet girl she made pink and purple sparkly cupcakes for on her third birthday.

TAKE THE CAKE TOOK MY BREATH AWAY!!We were in the middle of planning my sons 4th birthday party when the plans were put on hold due to a family emergency. After all got settled it was Wednesday and I needed a cake for the following Saturday. I called around and no one could help me. One of the bakeries I called suggested I call Take The Cake to see if they could help me. I AM SO GLAD I DID!!! They were able to help me with a themed cake on such short notice. My sons birthday theme was the Avatar Movie. I figured I’d just tell them my theme and get what I get, after all I only gave them 3 days. When I went to pick up the cake and they opened the box I was at a loss for words, It was BEAUTIFUL!! They did such a great job, for a great price!! It also tasted wonderful!! The amount of frosting was perfect, and was the best butter cream I’ve ever had. By far the BEST cake I’ve ever ordered! Take The Cake has my business from now on! I’ve told all my friends about them! Thank you sooo much for such wonderful service and such a wonderful cake!!

THE BEST CAKE ANYWHERE.This is the best bakery! I’m a huge Moeller’s fan…they made my wedding cake and their petit fours are TDF. But I hate to drive from the suburbs for every cake occasion. I saw a review of this bakery and thought I would give them a try. OMG, I’m so glad I did. I get more compliments on parties because of the ladies at Take the Cake! Not only are they beautiful, but they are DELISH! You can taste the quality ingredients. Of course, it’s not the cheapest place in town, but they are very competitive and worth every penny. I get them for every party we have…our guests now ask. :)

My husband bought my first cake from Take The Cake almost 5 years ago.It was the Chocolate Truffle. It is amazingly rich and moist. (Try it with a cup of coffee–yum, yum!) The quality is always consistent. I now get one for my birthday every year! I’ve brought several cakes to the office and all have been hits. I count myself lucky, if there are any leftovers. Left unguarded and it will be gone! I’ve tried the Carrot, Hummingbird, Italian Cream, German Chocolate, and Lemon Cream. All were moist and flavorful. Everyone at the bakery has always been polite and friendly. They will try their best to accommodate your order on short notice. You will find it very hard to be disappointed.
Got the Chocolate Truffle cake for my recent birthday celebration and YUM YUM YUMMMY.I only needed the six inch one so good. I also really like the fact that you pay them in CASH, transaction smooth and quick. YUP, next event or holiday they will have my $$$ and business.

I needed a birthday cake for my husband at the last minute. I didn’t have time to pre-order anything and I really wanted a delicious original cake. I was lucky enough to find Take the Cake with ready to take cakes that are absolutely delicious! I had the vanilla cake with raspberry preserves and butter cream icing TDF! I am not a cake person but this cake was the perfect balance of light, fluffy and sweet and I haven’t even gotten to the icing which is rich and creamy. I will definitely make Take the Cake the place to go for all of my future bakery needs. I also need to mention how friendly the staff is and very informative.
