DO NOT let Black Forest Bakery make your wedding cake- you will not get what you ask for trust me!! i had the simplest request, a chocolate ganache iced cake (which i paid the upgrade for) with sugared fruit on it. I gave them a picture to follow. Tom convinced me to add some brown ribbon around each layer, even though i didn't want it, i agreed because he was very pushy about it, and I was a very easy going bride. I told him no flowers were to be on the cake, only fruit and leaves. Needless to say the day of my wedding came, I was at the hall and couldn't wait to see the cake- to my horror the cake had some sugared fruit- but it also was covered in big Red Roses and Yellow flowers. I almost cried. RED AND YELLOW??!!! those weren't even my colors!!!!!! my flowers were soft pinks and whites, there was no red or yellow in my theme at all- i didn't know what to say. At that point there was nothing i could do. I never called Lessings to complain because they contract Black Forest to do the cakes. I should have. Its been 5 years and every time i look at my pictures i'm pissed when i see that stupid cake. I would never ever recommend you let these fools make a cake for you- because its quite obvious from all of the other listings here that Tom does not listen AT ALL.

SAVE YOUR MONEY! I ordered a cake from black forest bakery of lindenhurst several months prior to my son's first birthday. It was to be sent to a family members house the morning of the party and they were going to bring the cake to the birthday party. I also called black forest bakery one week before the party to confirm my order. The day of my son's first birthday my father called me and said they didnt send the cake in the time frame black forest had promised and that he called them and they were very unprofessional. I called black forest and was informed they had forgot to make the cake and were working on it now. In addition, they made my father and several other family members including myself late for my son's first birthday. Also, the flowers on the cake were purple and not blue as requested. Furthermore, the cake was very dry and we received numerous complaints from both family and friends about the taste. In conclusion, please don't use this bakery. They created a lot of stress for everyone on a very special day.

The cake designer assured us that she would be able to make our cake the way we wanted it. What we wanted was for the bottom and top tier's to resemble flames, and the middle tiers to resemble tribal tattoo design, she asked if we had stencils that we wanted to us. We certainly did, and my husband dropped them off a few months prior to the wedding. We called several times, and could not get the designer on the phone, but were assured she knew what we wanted.
Look at the picture of our cake. IT IS FREAKING ORANGE TIE DIE AND RETARDED SWIRLS. IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW WHAT YOU WERE DOING YOU SHOULD HAVE SAID SO, RATHER THAN RUINING OUR WEDDING CAKE!!!
We were married on August 14th, to date, September 14th, despite numerous calls to the bakery, we have received no response, and are met with rude employees who will not take a message.

Black Forest Bakery is the best! I went to the bakery to order a birthday cake for my grandson's first birthday. My grandson loves Mickey Mouse and Tommy designed the most beautiful three layer Mickey Mouse cake complete with balloons! It was truly a work of art.

Bought a cake for an office party. I was so embarrassed when the cake was cut. There was mold on the bottom of the cake. When I called to tell them. I was asked to bring the cake back. At that point I had already threw the cake in the garbage, where it should have been in the first place. I understand mistakes are made. But I did not like they way it was taken care of. The staff should know the inventory. I told them where the cake was behind the glass. They should know when the cakes are baked and put out. In the end I got a store credit. How am I going to divide up a store credit to my co-workers who all put in money for me to buy the cake? I hope they get their act together. When ordering a cake fresh, I have never had a problem. Seems a shame to lose customers over a $ 25 moldy cake. I haven't been back since.

Wanted a Blues Clues cake for my sons birthday in 2005. I DID NOT want a 3D cake, paid in full for what I wanted and got a call a few days prior that I needed to pay an additional $115 as the cake was 3D. No matter how many times I said that was not what I wanted or had ordered they had me...what was I to do? I have since learned how to make the cakes my kids wnat for their parties and will NEVER use this bakery again....Tom is nasty and looks unclean

I don't know where to begin.

Just like the other reviewers said, Tom discourage as from doing anything that seems to complicated for him " oh, i cant make a black icing , oh i cant make black fondant" and everything just seems impossible for this guy. So we wanted black and red wedding cake with some spookiness to it and spider webs, etc and I supplied him with a bride and groom that I wanted him to apply to the cake. (Which I might add- he also gave me a hard time taking it)
I left there thinking he got what I wanted- he had done a Nightmare before Christmas cake that he had shown me- and I told him that is what I wanted. Granted - not a typical wedding cake- but this is my cake... I left there telling him again that I wanted the cake fondant BLACK. He agreed- and I paid the upgrade ($250) in full.

Two days before my wedding- I got a nasty call from some lady demanding the balance be paid for my cake. I explained I had paid in full- and that I could fax her my credit card statement plus the store receipt. She said she would check with Tom. I again stated to her that she should check in with him and to please remember I wanted my cake to be BLACK.

Regardless, I missed the the whole toast from my maid of honor because I was SO mad and fighting with the hall that this was not my cake.

It was WHITE and had red roses on it... He did add my bride and groom- and this is the only way I knew this was my cake. So sad.
The filling wasn't even what I wanted. I am sure this was no my cake- that they never made my cake- and just stuck on my bride and groom on a cake that they had...

I called him the next day- and of course I couldn't get a hold of him. I called 10 times and I only got him- cause I told them that I stopped payment with my visa card. He came on the phone- and really had no excuse why or why not- didn't care.

Bastard is all I can say. He just doesn't care. He is lazy and I think spends most of the day high...

I got married in 2007- and my husband and I still talk about that cake. I just feel cheated. Why could I have not had what I wanted?

I was very disappointed with the end result of the apperance of my wedding cake. I met with the baker for 15 minutes and she refused to take a color sample or picture of the cake and said she understood what I wanted. On the day of my wedding I found green icing flowers and green ribbon on my cake. My wedding color was victorian sky blue. I told her the florist would put the flowers on the cake. The cake was going to look even worse if we removed the fake looking icing flowers that were on all three layers of the cake. Also, my double heart on top was broken.

I was highly disappointed with the way the cake looked. Tried to contact the owner, Tom and have not heard a response. I left 6 messages for him.

I ordered a hot pink rolled fondant Sweet 16 cake for my daughter with cut out stars and a mad hatter top (slanted second layer). Not only was the cake gorgeous, it was also delicious. It was chocolate cake with raspberry mousse and chocolate mousse. Yum! My picky daughter was thrilled. The cake planner was pleasant and helpful.

Brides Beware! The venue in which our reception was being held used them. Durring our initial meeting with Tom we were very uneasy by his arrogant attitude "No one uses cake toppers anymore!" "You don't want fondant?!" We complained to the venue but they assured us that they have had complaints about his attitude but, he always delivered a beautiful cake and was quick to fix any problems. Not so at all! The out side of the cake not at all what we wanted we let it slide, paid extra for the yellow cake to be tinted green (Saint Patricks day wedding) figuring this little surprise was to come we cut the cake and it's Yellow? Definite looks of disappointment on the video. Called numerous times to get refund, assured refund is in the mail numerous times two years later never received refund.

Black forest Bakery is the bakery used by the wonderful hall at which I was married. When my husband and I sat with the owner to go over the cake he was very arrogant and rude, He seemed annoyed that we did not want the $250.00 extra Fondant icing and charged us an additional $50.00 to tint the cake green (got married St. Patricks day). Cake was not green; Shamrocks on the cake not green, although it tasted good not what we paid extra for. Have called the bakery 3 times he is never there e-mailed no response. Finally got the hall involved and he had the nerve to say the charge was for Fondant icing that we did not have. Very shady and rude business person.

The Black Forest Bakery is located in the heart of Lindenhurst Village and has been around for many years. The quality of the baked goods here is outstanding. They have a terrific selection of pies, cakes, cookies, breads, rolls and pastries. Their black forest layer cake is outrageous and their cookies are SOO good. The service is friendly and efficient. They also make beautiful cakes for all occasions and our family has used them many times. I highly recommend this bakery.

PROS: Outstanding quality cakes, cookies, pastries, breads
CONS: Village parking situation

Black forest is an AMAZING bakery. My family has been frequenting them for years and they have yet to disappoint. Their cakes and cookies are always fresh and delicious. They can also do any custom order your heart desires. They know their pastries. The employees are always cheerful and helpful even whe it gets busy which is often. Early morning is the best time to go.
