We only had to meet once with Merry's Custom Cakes and she envisioned our dream wedding cake exactly how we wanted it. The cake was brought to the venue and assembled on location to make sure everything was perfect. Each layer on the cake

Thank you so much for your generosity and our beautiful special cake. It was perfect, and brought back special memories of our original wedding cake 24 years ago. The frosted grapes were beautiful and it tasted amazing. Thank you again.

Merry made a beautiful custom wedding cake. We brought pictures of what we wanted--a birch tree cake with a bride and groom bird in a nest on top. The cake looked amazing, tasted great, and was a GREAT price. We did two sampling dates

I recently purchase a cake from Merry's Custom Cakes. When i call to place the order I had no idea what i wanted. The woman who answered the phone was very patient and helped me pick the perfect design for my mothers 70th birthday. I was very impressed with the selection of flavors to choose from. there were so many flavors I had a hard time picking just one. When i picked up the cake the employees made sure i knew how to get it home safely and how to disassemble it for serving. The cake was absolutely amazing and it literally sparkled. My guests were truly impressed also. The cake tasted great too!! i cannot wait for the next family party so i can try some other flavors. 2 thumbs up for Merry's Custom Cakes

Me and my daughter went to Merry's to order her shower,groom and wedding cake. We gave them a picture of the red & black mad hatter cake we wanted and they said no problem they could replicate it. When we picked up the shower cake is was a worker and not Mary. The cake had so many differences and was so ugly. We were horrified. We had no choice but to continue on to the shower. It should have had roses & bows but instead it had black round balls scattered around and odd leaves and flat daisy like flowers. We ordered pound cake with cannoli filling but got chocolate and the filling was to thin to tell what it was. It also was covered in spotty glitter which looked horrible. The cake was unusable for the shower but we tasted it before we threw it away and it tasted like a dry box cake with a sour flavor. When we called and spoke with Mary on the way to the shower to voice our concerns she just laughed and hung up on us.I emailed once we were home to cancel the other cakes and received a nasty response. It took 60 days to receive a refund for the other 2 cakes we ordered. This was difficult for us because we paid her in full for the cakes and it was only one month before the wedding. So we not only had to find a new baker on such short notice but the money bugeted she held on to until one month after the wedding. Even then I had to email her to say the 60 days are up before she mailed a check out. When I did receive a check it was minus a 100.00 deposit fee. Which was really unfair since she refused to make the other cakes anyway. her words were "I wouldn't make you another cake for a million dollars" It would take much more space then allowed to tell all the details of how nasty and unprofessional Mary the owner treated us. I uploaded 2 photos of a black and red mad hatter cake to the photo gallery. One is the picture we gave them and the other is the cake we received. I'm sure it will be no problem to see which one was from Merry's. I am thankful that I had the experience with the shower cake before I had a disaster on my daughter's wedding day. PLEASE LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR YOUR SPECIAL OCCASION CAKE. SAVE YOURSELF THE AGGRAVATION!!!

I have been using Merry's cakes for 6 years now and i have to say that i was never disappointed. She has made all of my childrens birthday cakes and Communion cakes too. i never had a problem with her cakes. SHe has a great sense of humor and listens very well to what you want on and in your cakeThe only thing i would change is for her to make the fillings more thicker.She does not put enough filling in the cake.But that is really the only problem i have had.. .I am going on my 7th year and probably will be going on many more years to come for her to make my cakes..Great talent!

I had found Merry's custom cakes online and on the front page of her website I found MY PERFECT WEDDING CAKE--I went to the bakery and met with Merry...knowing what I wanted made it sooo much easier. Within 15 minutes I was in and out...on Sept 30 2006 arrived and set up perfectly...everyone LOVED the cake...Just wish I would have ordered a bigger cake
And for those that dont like the company...just remember its a cake....not an heirloom that passes down through the family

I was in a bind for my mother's 25th anniversary cake and found Merry's online. She promised everything would be as I asked for. My parents were renewing their vows, so I called to confirm everything a few days prior to the celebration and one of her associates did so for me.
The 3 stacked cake arrived unassembled and the flowers they told us to leave out so they could decorate were never touched. We had to try and put the cake together ourselves and decorate it 15 minutes before the ceremony! The icing on the cake is that the filling was wrong too!
I left 2 frantic messages and heard nothing back. I then called two days later and Merry herself said she got my message but never called me back. I do not normally fly off the handle, but I was appauled when she said "many people assemble their own cakes...it's easy". I said this was not our agreement over the phone and she told me I have nothing in writing and basically had no leg to stand on. This is where I lost it. I advised her I would be calling my CC company and would be reporting her poor business practices and hung up. She called back 2x harrassing me...apparently doesn't mind calling back now, and also left a voicemail saying she is telling every vendor she knows not to use me for anything...pretty stupid since I am the customer, not a vendor. She also said I didn't return the cake so I will not receive any money back. This was so upsetting and I never thought a sweet little baker could be such a manipulative liar. I will NEVER use her again and will be fighting for my money back.

If I could give this place 0 stars I would! I ordered what I thought was going to be a very special cake for my little girls 3 year birthday. When we arrived it was not ready, we had to wait 10 min. and when we got it we couldn't believe how horrible it was! It was an awful pixelated printout they plopped on the cake, which I thought would be hand drawn from the "master confectioner" herself. It was so pixelated your eyes got funny when you read it. As if that isn't bad enough, there was a huge bubble in the middle from them plunking this hideous picture on there. They said it would get sucked down after a while from the moisture of the cake which never happened. We had a horrible cake with a big bubble in it that became the joke of the party. If we hadn't been in a rush to make the party time they could have kept that awful thing. For someone to make claims that they have made cakes for such prestigous people I can't believe they left this out of their shop. It became a big joke to everyone at our party and when we cut into it we found out it wasn't even the cake we wanted. It was supposed to be rainbow swirl with strawberry mousse. It was a plain yellow cake with a super thin layer of some kind of strawberry jam or preserves. Disgusting! I have pictures for anyone who wants to see this thing. The sad thing is if they had sincerely apologized for it when my husband called to say it was horrible I would have accepted it as maybe one slipping through the cracks and too many cakes too little time but the simple fact is they just didn't care. Not even a sorry was given, just an "okay thanks" and she hung up and that was Merry herself! If your going to take a short cut and plop a printed edible picture on a cake at least do it right Merry!

Pros: They're quick with dismissing complaints and rushing orders.

Cons: Pay a lot for a rushed cake that becomes a joke when you wanted something special.
