I purchased 10-12 expensive cakes for wedding and baby showers, birthdays, dozens of cookies, cupcakes, and when they were available, donuts from this bakery over the past two years. With the exception of one screw-up on filling for a shower cake two years ago that I was compensated for, had been very happy with the quality of products. Based on my experience with an extremely expensive ($95 for a very small cake that was supposed to serve 20) birthday cake for my granddaughter's 2nd birthday, all that has changed.

I had been dealing with a very helpful employee in the past but when I called a few weeks ago to order the special Sesame Street themed cake (which I supplied a picture of), was told that person was not a regular employee any longer. I should have been skeptical then, but trusted the person I dealt with. I gave both written (via email) and spoken (phone conversation) instructions as to what I wanted. I was charged $20 each for 2" edible pictures of Elmo and Abby which looked looked like something cut out of a newspaper and stuck on the cake. In addition to being washed out, the images were larger than the layer of the cake they were placed on so the paper stuck out above the edge of the cake. The colors used for decoration were garish, and what should have been alternating chevron strips and balls of bright colors on the sides and base of the two very thin layers, were nothing more than blobs of hideous colors.

In addition to absolutely hating the cake, the owner was rude when I asked for a punch card. Despite all the products I have purchased from this bakery in the past, I was never offered a punch card and when I brought this to the attention of the person I spoke to when ordering the birthday cake, was told I would get 2 punches since the cake was expensive. Not only did I only get 1 punch on the card, but was told it was my fault for not asking for a punch card. Definitely not the best way to treat a loyal customer who will not set foot in this place again!

Originally, for our wedding, we didn't really care what the cake tasted like as neither my husband nor myself really like cake. We went into Cakes A Bloomin just to see what they offered. Their cake tastes so incredible that we not only ordered our wedding cake from them but we also ordered an anniversary cake a year later. Also, my family was so impressed that they order birthday cakes from them as well. We have never been disappointed! They were very professional yet welcoming, they had awesome tasting cake, and the design was really nice. I will never go anywhere else!

I live in the Detroit area and I travel to Grand Ledge to purchase my cakes from Jody, the owner, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Twenty years ago and counting, they did the wedding cakes for all four of my children. I lived in the Lansing area until moving to the Detroit area 15 years go. When I read some of the reviews that indicated the products were "pricey" I can only comment that you get what you pay for. These cakes will never disappoint you or your guests.

I have gotten quite a few cakes from here. They have done everything for me from a soccer field to a calculator and a mountain side. I cannot believe how wonderful the cakes looked and how great they taste.They are a bit pricey..I had them duplicate the cake I had for my actual wedding in Las Vegas for my reception here and it cost more here then there.However the cake is the best in the world and since I host the B-day parties for all of my friends they cannot wait to see what they come up with next!!!!

The wedding cake was the ugliest cake I've seen. The colors were wrong, the Topper was put on upside down, It looked like a hat from a cartoon. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. I called to complain,all I got was "I'm sorry". Well I was embarrassed that my guests thought I ordered that cake. Beware if you pay in advance this is what you get!!!

The butter cream icing is out of this world. The cake was very moist and delicious. I would recommend this bakery for all your special occasion cakes, especially weddings.

Cakes A Bloomin has some of the best cakes for every occasion. My favorite is their personal heart shape cakes. They are the perfect size for someone who wants s more than a cupcake but not to have the temptation of having a full sized cake in the area. I highly recommend this place.

I was so sad when this place moved from their former location. Besides being an excellent bakery with practically sinful baked goods, they have the best pasties I've ever had. You can get them fresh or frozen, and they even send the gravy home with ya.

Now, unfortunately, they are located quite a distance from me, so I have to make a special trip to the other side of town to go there. I really think they should open up a second location on the east side...yeah, that's the ticket!

A wonderful store that created beautiful and magnificent sweet treats. Special orders are accepted and done very well. A bit on the pricey side, but for a special occasion -- this is the place if you want to be sure it will be done right.
