In two weeks they doubled the price of the exact same cake from $80 to $160!! This is the second time they've increased the price on me from what I was quoted. Can't be trusted. It doesn't matter how good of a product they had a year and a half ago for my wedding, the new management is unprofessional and even hung up on me!! Not worth ging back to.

It is so sad what has happened to this once great shop. Their cakes are now overpriced, often stale, and it is hit and miss on decorations.

I ordered a cake from this company to surprise my partner for his b-day biggest mistake i've made! Just picked up a cake that is suppose to feed 30 people yeah right! I will be lucky to feed 10. I payed $86.00 for a tiny cake that looks like crap. I am very dissapointed! When I spoke to the manager Ericka there was nothing she could do. Absolutely ridiculous!This place is a rip off! DO NOT TRUST THIS PLACE FOR ANY SPECIAL OCCASIONS THEY WILL RUIN IT!

We recently returned to Albuquerque after a 13-year absence, and apparently this place has changed ownership or management.
They were always good quality and dependable, almost always exceeding requests, in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
We wanted an angel-food cake with fresh strawberries in the middle, but the dumb clerk on the phone didn't know what that was. So, we ordered the small ""festive"" sheet cake for about $30.
When we picked it up, we were so disappointed that we asked for a refund or adjustment, and the very rude clerk refused. The cake looked like it had been decorated by our 10-yr-old, with almost no decorations. Our family and friends ate only a few bites of their pieces, and even the kids left most of their slices on their plates.
The cake was heavy and the icing was greasy, not at all the ""butter-cream"" frosting we paid for. It was supposed to be a ""strawberry"" cake, but it tasted like the indeterminate fruity flavoring common to dollar-store, made-in-China snacks -- definitely not fresh, and it left an awful after-taste.
We asked to speak to the owner, but she hid out in her office.
From other reviews that recounted encounters with her, we're probably lucky we didn't see her face to face.

I am new to Albuquerque and LOVE cupcakes and have been making it a point to visit the top cupcakes locations in the area. This seems to be a great cake place but I wasn't impressed with their cupcakes. They didnt taste fresh and were not moist at all!!!

I've used this bakery since the 80's. They changed owners and now the cupcakes are microscopic at twice the price. It's not the same bakery, and does not have the same old fashioned customer service like they used to have. Every order has an up-charge attached to it. Believe me, there are other bakeries in town that have the same flavor and are less expensive. There are better bakeries in town. Be wise and buy elsewhere. This long time customer has walked away for good.

I've used this bakery since the mid 80's and never thought of going anywhere else. They've changed owners and now the cupcakes are microscopic at the same price. Anything you order has an extra price attached to it. Seriously, it's not the same bakery, not the same old fashioned customer service like it used to have. I will not shop here any more. Too bad. Don't waste your time or your money. There are better bakeries in town.

Sure their cakes taste good but after they lost the ticket for two separate cakes we ordered on two different occasions I will never order a cake from ABC again!

First they lost the ticket for a baby shower cake I ordered the day of the shower and had to put together a version of the cake I did not pay for. Then 3 months later I ordered a graduation cake and called a few weeks before the event to make sure they had the ticket (I was not taking any chances this time) and they lost the ticket AGAIN! Unbelievable! After they took the reorder I called a few days later and they lost the ticket A SECOND TIME! They claimed they had no record of the cake (even though the money was taken out of my account already and I had a receipt). Everyone I talked to was incompetent and did not care at all about this. Even the manager was not taking the situation seriously. The graduation is tomorrow and I am hoping my cake will be there but I am NEVER GOING THROUGH THIS AGAIN!!

The Cake Tasted WONDERFUL!!! My husband and I went and picked out what we wanted with out any pressure - We drew up what we wanted and gave them all the accessories - the Cake was on time - and BEAUTIFUL! I was very happy...

Don't let anyone throw your cake - a drunk groomsman threw the cake at our best man after everyone got a slice - we didn't get to keep any of it - and had a cleaning charge - it does happen - lol - good thing we had already left the party!!!

The cake you made for our 50th wedding anniversary celebration dinner was perfect. Our guests enjoyed it very much (our 5 year old grandson ate 2 pieces), the decorations just right, very simple.

Folks, I thought I would drop you a line to thank you for your wonderful service last August 25th. I had tried to call you from atop Carlsbad Caverns the day before, but that had resulted in 6 to 8 dropped call. Through it all you were courteous and patient and when I was finally able to call you that evening, at the last minute, you took my order as a matter of course and delivered the birthday cake at 2 oclock Saturday afternoon, exactly when you said you would.

With your kind help I was able to give my grandson a 12th birthday he will never forget.

The cake itself was stunningly beautiful. It was huge: much larger than I ever could have anticipated; but most importantly, it was the best tasting birthday cake I have ever had. In that had 60 myself, I can speak as an expert.

I chose the ABQ Marriott because it happened to be the closest hotel to your cake shop. I was right in that decision. Thank you again

ABC proudly calls itself a ""cake shop"" and not a bakery, as well it should. Their cakes are by far, some of the best in Albuquerque. Their decorating prowess is exceptional and when you are looking for a cake for ANY special event, this is the only place to go in New Mexico. Sadly though, their cookies are somewhat below average. Don't get me wrong, the pastry-style cookies are delicious and flaky, and most of their other cookies are also delicious.

ABC did my cake for my Christmas wedding. It was made to looks like stacked presents, VERY unique. ABC exceeded my expectations and more. The cake was beautiful! It tasted fantastic! I really recommend the spice cake. It was DELICIOUS! We paired it with an apple filling, for one of the ""presents"". Almost a month later, after all the aspects of my wedding, Im still hearing about how delicious the cake was! Thank you ABC!

Had an awesome experience with ABC Cake Shop. Initially I stopped in to see the facility and get a feel for their designs and prices. I was very impressed when the owner was assisting customers, and was willing to sit down with me go over pricing, day of the event timeline and design options. I orderd both a grooms cake and a traditional cake. They did an awesome job on both and really went above and beyond to help me design a perfect grooms cake for my husband. (A drum set)

I went to several cake tastings and was always disappointed at how dry everyone's cakes were! ABC Cake Shop was on my list to try so finally it to ABC Cake Shop...we were so blown away at what we found! Wow!!! The cake are so moist and delicious! There where so helpful when it came to the design. I had already picked one out of a magazine but knew that it required fondant icing which I was scared of since everyone talks about how awful it is. On my third tasting, ABC let me try there Satin Ice fondant icing which was so much better than I expected. I was overjoyed that I could get the design that I wanted without sacrificing the taste! On the actual day the cake came out exactly how I wanted it and tasted so great! I cant wait to have them do our free anniversary cake!

This is your one stop shop if you like to bake. They have everything you need from onsite prepared frosting you can buy, to decorations, to the pretty pastry box to put it in. They are happy to help with hints and ideas to make you next cake project perfect.

I've been a big fan of ABC Cakes... love them! Actually our whole family orders cakes from there. BUT it seems like every time I ordered a cake from there they screw it all up. My baby shower cake... wrong flavors and sloppy decorating! My son's 1st birthday/baptismal... UGLY CAKES! his birthday cake looked like a tombstone not a #1 and the baptismal cake looked like something I could have done.. AND I CANT BAKE! His 2nd birthday I decided to go with cupcakes, thinking you cant possibly screw up cupcakes. Well i was wrong! They hassled with me about the cupcakes I wanted, I thought I was the customer? and once again ...not what i wanted. If you have been there before you know their cakes arent cheap!! \r
\r
Their cakes taste so great I keep going back but keep getting burned! So, I guess a lot of it is my fault. I was hoping 3rd time was a charm...I suggest you take an actual drawing of what you want and be VERY specific if you decide to order a cake from there. \r

I grew up going to this bakery--it was in another location and much smaller--but the goodies never have changed-----It is a MUST if you want awesome cake and pastries.\r

I am a local caterer, who uses ABC's Bakery on a regular basis! Recently, I had an immediate need , their staff was friendly, understanding, and most of all accomodating. The cake that I purchased was a white cake with a delicious lemon filling, topped with a scrumptious icing( just a hint of lemon to compliment, but not overpower). I had so many compliments on the cake- one of the guest inquired if I made the cake- I confessed I did not- she ordered her twins that exact cake for their 9th birthday party.\r
I have read some of the other reviews; and have never experienced a poor product or unfriendly service. However, working with this establishment has been a blessing to my business; and I know without a shadow of a doubt, if there were ever a problem with my order, they would go out of their way to make it right ( even if they had to deliver it to you personally @ your function) .. I know from experience that this type of service will not be received from your local grocery store. If you give them the opportunity, which I am glad I have, and will continue to do!\r

First a word of caution. They are closed on Sundays. More warnings: you will leave heavier then when you entered. I have been known to have a pastry and coffee and go back and do the same again. It is all but impossible to look at the vast and delicious selection and restrict yourself to only one measly thing. It all looks and tastes too good. I would recommend something but there is no point because it is ALL good. You might not want to bother with something like a sticky bun which other people can do alright with. Get something like a sourthern red velvet cupcakes. The coffee could be better and more consistent. They should work at this because then they would be perfect. But frankly you could skip the coffee altogether and they'd still be worth the trip. We're lucky to have this place and others like it in New Mexico- it's rare

I would recommend something but there is no point because it is ALL good. You might not want to bother with something like a sticky bun which other people can do alright with. Get something like a sourthern red velvet cupcakes. The coffee could be better and more consistent. They should work at this because then they would be perfect. But frankly you could skip the coffee altogether and they'd still be worth the trip. We're lucky to have this place and others like it in New Mexico- it's rare

Pros: Everything Sweet. Especially the Red Devil Cake

Cons: long lines

I purchased a cake for a baby shower and the cake was extremely dry (chocolate) and the icing wasn't a buttercream which is what I ordered but simply an inexpensive whipped topping. We were all extremely disappointed and neither I (nor any of the other shower attendents) will patronize ABC again! \r

I love the decorating at ABC. I've ordered a few from them because themes amuse me. They always come out just as they do in the catalog.\r
\r
The cakes have never come out well. We eat them cause, well they'll get old and we paid so much for them. The cakes are always dry. For being a bakery, they don't do a very good job at baking. Is there a shortage of water? LOL I could do a better job myself. I tried one year. I asked if I could buy a cake set through them and just make it myself. The first lady was helpful about it. The person she referred me to, bit my head off. I just want ONE? Heck no! I have to buy SIX of them! \r
\r
The actual moral of that was I got to learn how much the sets cost. It turns out that they are almost 50% of the cake bill. That's okay but, it still seems a little pricey for a few pieces of minimally detailed plastic and cheap buttercream.\r
\r
I DO know that I am NOT going to order strawberry cake again! That was NOT strawberry in any way. It was white with food coloring. It looked like it was bleeding on the table. LOL

Pros: They have great themes and are skilled in creating them.

Cons: The food is awful and they're a little pricey.

Heavenly and to die for should never be used in the same sentence but im sorry these gourmet cupcakes are to die for!!!! I had the wedding of my dreams on July 19, 2008 and ABC made the wedding cake of my dreams. The cake was FABULOUS. My guests were trying to figure out if the cake was real because it looked so pretty. It was the most beautiful cake I have ever seen. It was sectioned into 4 pieces (Chocolate Strawberry Peaches n Cream Key Lime) I can't even put into words how wonderful the taste was. Each Section had its own unique taste. I had no cake left from a cake that could feed 150 people. All of my guest (92) were taking large portions home because it was so good. I actually saw a couple of my guest fussing because they didn't want the cake to be eaten up so they could take some home. I plan on using him for all of my special occasion cakes. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend him.I also used him for my mother's 50th birthday celebration(the best CHOCOLATE BROWNIES I have ever tasted). And I am now using them for my nephew 2 year old's birthday party I don't remember how I found out about this place but im glad I did..........THANKS ABC

I?m writing to tell you that we were delighted with the cake you made for our graduation party last year, thanks for the time and attention to detail it was very impressive. The customer service was amazing too. Well done, i 've already told all my friends about it.

ABC's cakes are great. They did my wedding cake last year and I was a little disappointed. They lost the pearls I gave them to use around the edges, so they improvised with frosting (without letting me know. My cake just showed up that way...they never even tried to contact me), and, when the cake was set up, they left it tipping to one side. Not a little, but very noticably. I was happy that my cake did not tip over, but it was tipping so much that it easily could have. The decoration on the cake was simple and elegant as I requested, I was just sad about the pearls. The cake did taste great and there was none left over. Afterward, it took a great deal of effort and quite a few pictures for proof, but they finally agreed to refund 10% of the cost. \r

My husband went back to ABC this week to order a 7 inch round white cake to be decorated like our wedding cake for our anniversary (we didn't save the original top piece). Our wedding cake was decorated simply with smooth, white buttercream frosting and a few s-shaped swirls on the sides, also done with white buttercream. Nothing fancy. Simple and understated. ABC was happy to make the 7 inch round cake for us, but they charged us an additional $10 because it was decorated ""like a wedding cake"". I'm thoroughly disgusted by this. We paid the $10 because we want to celebrate our first anniversary with a cake decorated like our wedding cake, but how we asked them to decorate it has far less embellishment than all of the cakes in their display case. There are no flowers, nothing extra, just smooth, white frosting with a couple of swirls on the side, but because we mentioned the word ""wedding"", they threw in the extra charge.\r
\r
ABC makes great cakes, and they know it. They will nickel and dime you with whatever you let them get away with. I still gave them a recommendation because their cakes taste great, but be aware that you'll pay for greatness, and customer service leaves much to be desired.

The buttercream is to die for. I order a cake for my son's birthday. It was white cake with raspberry filling and the best tasting buttercream in the world............. I would recommend.

I saw a very cute Nemo designed cake at a friend's house for her 1 yr old's birthday and decided that I would order the same for my 2 yr old's birthday. We also ordered the cake in chocolate. When I went to pick up the cake - it looked awful! The Nemo cake looked nothing like my friend's AND the chocolate cake was DRY too! We paid over $30 for an ugly dry tasting cake! When I called to tell ABC bakery they just sat on the phone and said NOTHING! I had to ask if they were still on the line. They said they could not do anything about it! I would have been satisfied with some sort of coupon or discount off the cake -- but it was if they did not care! I guess their business is doing so good that they don't care about CUSTOMER SERVICE anymore!

Pros: Lots of designs for cakes of all ocassions

Cons: If you get a Bad or Inexperienced cake decorator - you've just waisted your time and money! They are EXPENSIVE TOO!

Ordered an ice cream cake. Picked it up. When out of my way to ensure it did not melt before party. During party, noticed there was no ice cream. Called manager the next day. I was told that maybe next time, I'll double-check the order.

This place has it all - cakes, cookies and other baked goods. Made a WONDERFUL ice cream cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday. Beautifully decorated as I requested, and tasty. All the guests commented on it. And about the same price you would pay in a grocery store bakery! Ordered ahead, but they were able to accomodate another customer on short notice. Great customer service.

ABC cake shop makes the BEST cakes in Albuquerque. They can make any design you bring to them. We ordered our wedding cake through them and it was very tasty and absolutely beautiful! The can make just about any style you want. My favorite is their fruit filled cakes with the whipped cream frosting. ABC also bakes breads, cookies, and a variety of other pasteries. You can also pick up sale items that are two days old.
