This is one of the rudest businesses I've ever dealt with! I am a business owner myself and would fire my employee on the spot if they ever treated one of our customers the way my mother and I were treated! I could never fathom being the owner and having such little tact. My mother spoke so highly of their cakes and after being put off and my appointment being rescheduled due to the customer before me canceling and them not wanting to stay open to deal with me, I wasn't so sure anymore but was willing to give them a shot. They told me to bring a picture of what I want and they could match it. I did just that. Had a picture, my colors, knew what flavor and so on, but still she was so rude! Could not give me what design I wanted, did not have the color ribbon I needed and couldn't even let me taste the flavor I asked for. I would rather give Wal-Mart or SAMS by business before ever giving this place a penny!!! So disappointed!!!

I'm a business owner myself and I really do not understand how these people can still be in business.

Their cakes are very good, but I have never been treated so poorly anywhere.

The girl at the counter treated us so badly. Even after she screamed at us for her mistake. She stood there and bad mouthed us to other customers that walked in the door. I was in tears by the time we left. The owner came out and cleared up the confusion but did NOTHING about the super rude employee.(they must be related) If I had an employee that did that I would have fired them right on the spot. NO ONE will ever treat my customers that way.... EVER!

Rude! Our cake wasn't ready for pickup at the scheduled time and the woman at the counter acted as if it was our fault. She never even said sorry or that they would deliver it since it was their fault. This woman was rude when we ordered the cake but we overlooked that because everybody has a bad day.
We've never been treated so badly and will never order from here again!

I was really disappointed when I went to pick up my husbands birthday cake. The cake looked like a wedding cake with poker chips thrown on there. I gave pictures and pictures of how I wanted the cake to look. She kept saying well I will have to charge u for this ... ok I'm not looking for a hand out. this was the worse service ever and on top of that, look how I was treated. If you customer is requesting something and you should do it if you can, if not than say so. The cakes I showed her all had Fonded with a variety of colors. My cake was white no fonded or detail. I should have known when she told me what sizes I could get. She said no I only do this ... size for wedding cakes, excuse me do I look like I'm pressed for $, How do u tell a customer what size cake to get if their paying for it. (That was a clue there to leave) I was so embarrsed because we are very known for having out of sight cakes. to top it off I had to pay for it in full. When they were in Fenton with different bakers they were awesome. This new management team needs to go out of business. Well back to Sweet dreams or Fox & Hound. I try to help local business but in this case it worth the drive to get what I want/how I want it. they do awesome work all the time with no stipulation. The cake is cheaper and the work is Great! I will never go back to French Confection

Their cakes are SO over priced and not any better than any other bakery. Our wedding cake was frozen solid at 7pm. The owner takes a $100 deposit for the cake plate to be returned within 2 days. I returned the cake board and its been 2 1/2 months and she hasn't returned my deposit yet! She won't call us back and when we go in she's " not in." I'd say go somewhere else and save yourself the hassel. The time spent dealing with this bakery on top of the high prices makes me sick.

Cake was tasty. Has some difficulty in tasting all the flavors. Some that were requested did not come in sample box. Be aware of the delivery charge....$100 it what we had to pay, and the church was .3 miles away. We had to have it delivered because they do not allow you to pick up the cake if its 3 tiers. Again, cake was tasty but disappointed with the way the overall experience.

The French Confection is the place my ENTIRE family goes for special occasion cakes. Everything from my cousin's (6)graduation parties to family weddings. They always taste delicious, the presentation is elegant, and our family's guests are always so impressed. They have always been so attentive to our every need and request, the customer service is great. When I get married in the fall, I know where I'll be getting my wedding cakes from.

I really liked The French Confection. We had them for our wedding in 2004. The cake was really good and the decorating was awesome. We had 3 layers of cake in shape of boxes and everyone couldn't believe it was real.

Their cakes are so good. You have to try them. They have a bunch of different fillings. I had the one with fruit all through it last week at a shower. Their prices are high, but well worth it for a special event. I never tried one I did not like.

The French Confection has not only beautiful wedding cakes, but cakes that taste great as well. My sister ordered her wedding cake from the French Confection and I was surprised with not only how elegant the cake looked, but with the flavor. Many times such large cakes are not as moist or tasty but this cake was amazing. The filling was great, and the cake was nice and moist...even the next day. The cake was beautiful and looked simple but classic and elegant, as if it was from a magazine. I was surprised by the result as normally you have to travel to Troy, Rochester, or Bloomfield Hills to find such results, but this was quite convenient and closer to home.
