THE WORST CAKE I HAVE EVER BOUGHT!!!!!!! I asked if they could make a 3D graduation cap for my daughters graduation party, they said 'no problem' and that they knew how to do that. Went to pick up the cake....
Problem 1: They spelled my daughters name wrong even though it was right on the paper. The lady got mad when I pointed it out to her. (it did get corrected)
Problem 2: The cake was not what I had showed them a picture of, in fact it didn't even look like a cap. More like a star or crown or octopus.
Problem 3: The cake was yellow not gold like I had asked
Problem 4: The cake was DISGUSTING. Honestly BI-LO could have made a better cake. And the icing was crusty!

Not only did they mess up the cake but they also messed up the cake pops I had ordered. They were suppose to be chocolate black and gold ombre and sparkly. They ended up being yellow with black sprinkles. They weren't even chocolate, they were birthday cake flavor. I ordered 15 and got 12. They weren't as bad as the cake though. We paid 45$ for the cake, it was a disaster. Don't waste your money.

Why do companies promise to deliver and don't.
1. Customer Servive was poor. for a bakery in business since 1939, very disappointing. They told me i could have red velvet and then they told me They couldn't make a red velvet wedding cake. Had to repeatedly discuss cake order. Had to finally go to Spartan Bakery AND TALKED TO OWNER to discuss cake and the flowers on the cake ...went twice.. Requested edible flowers , they said they couldn't. I am a retail cakemaker, I knew it could be done. I would have made the cake but i didnt have time. They finally said they would make edible flowers. PS they were inedible. I was told by insider that they farm decorative flowers to someone else.
Day of wedding today...today. At 3:00 pm cake had not been delivered. Agreed time had been 9:00am. ADDED STRESS. NOT NEEDED.
2. QUALITY : bad. Cake was tasteless . Icing was tasteless and gritty. The kids said it wasn't sweet and I noticed that not one of my 100 guests said anything as they ate it. Then I noticed they were not finishing their cake. Nobody liked it.
We paid over $600 for the cake.

...they'd use Spartan Bakery's recipe. "There must be crack in this cake," a friend of mine once postulated, because she couldn't stop wanting it. Yes, it's that good. I'm generally a vanilla-cake-with-vanilla-icing purist, and their version has ruined me for all other kinds -- a perfect, fluffy cake with the most enigmatically delicious icing you've ever put in your mouth, like eating a vanilla cloud.

Suffice to say, Spartan Bakery has made all my birthday cakes since I was a kid, plus my graduation cake and every cake in between. They'll make my wedding cake, my shower cakes -- all my future cakes. When I die, I want a cake at my funeral, and I want Spartan Bakery to make it.

Spartan Bakery did our wedding cake and, more recently, our son's first birthday cake. In both cases, I was able to bring in picture and talk one-on-one with staff members to relay exactly what I wanted. Both times, I have been very impressed with their customer service and the quality of their cakes, not to mention their reasonable prices. Highly recommend!

I got my son a birthday cake with the WipeOut Game Show theme. It was an unusual cake but Mike at Spartan Bakery made it happen! My son loved the cake!! All Mike had to go on was a picture and his creativity. It was a devil's food cake with buttercream icing and it was delicious!! We were expecting to pay $50-$60 dollars and ended up being charged less than $35! Thanks Mike!

let me start by saying I love me some Spartan bakery I have used them for every special occasion imaginable, I'm the father to four so that happens often! I have used them for as long as I can remember I also introduced my wife to them and she doesn't fix cake from a box anymore! We gave bi-lo a shot for a last minute birthday party and got a NASCAR cake the back fell off and ruined the cake. So disappointing to a 2 year old. I have enough stress when planning an event than to worry bout the cake I call tell them what i want and when I want it and I don't worry about it till time to pick it up! The staff is so wonderful about helping with ideas or suggestions. I appreciate all they have done for me I agree with "let your taste buds be the judge" cow
Dnt have said it better myself.

I live an hour away and would not go anywhere else but Spartan bakery for their cakes and cookies. My son is a plant manager and I send cakes and cookies to work with him and everyone just raves over them. The staff is the best you can find, they are thoughtful, and courteous, and very friendly. The staff treats you with respect, if anybody and everybody were completely honest they would have to say the same. I would recommend everyone to try Spartan Bakery, if you are honest you would say the same.

I really have to say that Spartan Bakery did a wonderful job on my baby shower cake. It was very cute with the babies on it but tasted great too. Everyone talked about how pretty the cake was and how good it tasted. The shower was a hit. Thanks Spartan Bakery.

I travel for business in NC, SC, TN and GA. If I EVER need a cake, cupcake, cookies, etc. I call, place an order and have never been disapointed. The owners/staff are polite and helpful. The best cake and icing of any place I know. I take cakes back to TN where I live, and to my offices in the other states. The prices are fair and everything is fresh!

I personally haven't met the owners but, a young man I worked with use to bring in cookies and cakes to work and they were delicious. I would love it when he brought sweets in, I finally asked him where he got them from he told me Spartan Bakery, said when he goes through Spartanburg he always gets him some sweets from Spartan bakery I do not blame him they are Delicious, I look forward to his trips to spartanburg so i can put in my order to what I want.

I have recently used Spartan Bakery for a twin baby shower cake and not just any cake it was three tiered cake it was huge, (I had to go all out it was my last pregnancy). I called Cathy the owner of Spartan Bakery and told her kind of a rough draft of what I was wanting and sent her a pic via e-mail she got back with me to make sure the details were correct and there were no mistakes that needed to be corrected, she was wonderful about making sure the cake was perfect for myself and my husband. We live in Pickens, SC and have used Spartan Bakery for our wedding and for my cookie cravings!! so the drive to Pick up the cake was well worth it the cake was amazing!!!! I didn't really want to cut it just kinda freeze it!! My cake was 3 tiered and put together and made a long ride from Spartanburg to Pickens!!! It's was still in tact nothing fell it was as if it hadnt made the looong ride. I took pics and sent it to everyone, the cake was talk of the shower. I will make the drive to Spartan Bakery for every event!

Wow! I wish I'd seen these reviews before I ordered from Spartan Bakery!
Bottom line, go elsewhere!
I gave Spartan Bakery an opportunity to redeem themselves before posting poor reviews, but they've chosen to let it go... yet another example of unprofessionalism.
Unfortunately I ordered my wedding cake from them. When I first walked in, Jamie seemed confident and knowledgeable; the owners, Mike & Cathy, friendly. A few days before my wedding I called to check in with Jamie to make sure we were all set. This is when I became a little nervous because I basically had to re-explain the details we'd discussed about my cake. I even sent her a picture of my cake via MMS. When I arrived at my reception the event coordinator met me and said, "don't freak out, your cake fell." She said the girl came in, set the cake up in a hurry, ran out, and within a few moments the top of my cake fell. At first I thought, ok, one person's story. But, throughout the course of the night several people related the same story including the DJ who was not a fan of some of the venue staff. I heard things like, "so sorry about your cake", "all of the sudden it was just falling!", "she was so unprofessional". The director at the reception venue called and left a message at Spartan Bakery, but nobody answered. And, when I called Monday evening, I was told they had still not heard the message. Originally staff at the bakery told me they don't usually hear the phone because "it's all the way in the office and we're usually in the kitchen", but later Mike changed this story when he spoke to my husband saying they "always answer".
The cake is a pretty big deal at most events, a huge deal at a wedding. Mine was horrid - visibly broken with attempted cover-ups from the venue staff. Jamie (bakery staff) took a picture of the cake just before she left it, and it looked beautiful, but you could already see where the top was buckeling because she crammed the topper down into it. It was not designed for that & any professional would have known that doing so would cause the cake to fall apart. When I asked for a 50% refund (not 100% because we did eat what we could salvage), Mike blew me off several times saying he had to "talk to his wife". The only time I heard from them was when I called, and they refused to compensate me in any way.
I love supporting local business, but they don't deserve it. They don't care about their customers or their cakes. Take your money elsewhere, it matters too much to take the chance with Spartan Bakery. And frankly, I've had better cake from a box.

This bakery is known for its HORRIBLE customer service!! I ordered a minnie mouse cake for my baby shower last year and when my husband went to pick it up, not only was it not finished but it looked horrible! We paid extra for the image to be projected on and traced, so we were told, and it was obviously hand drawn. I wouldnt have minded except minnie mouse looked like a bear! It was the ugliest thing I had ever seen, my husband knew it was not what we wanted so he texted me a pic.This was about 3 hrs before my shower and I burst into tears! They gave him some "free" cookies to apologize for the wasted gas it was gonna take to drive back home (30mins) and then back again. I was 9 months prego at the time and couldnt handle it :( I sent my mom to pick it up just as my party was starting and it still was not what we wanted, but at that point we had no choice but to accept it. We assumed we would at the very least get a discount but...NO! The manager/owner was there and told my mom that he already remade the cake for us and gave us some cookies and that should be enough! He said and I quote, "we have many customers and we cant expect to please them all"!!! When I was young this was the only bakery my parents used but something has happened in the past few years. Terrible Employees!! My daughter's 1st bday is in a few weeks and to ensure I get what I pay for, I'm in search for a new bakery :)

I love their cakes and I would have to say that if you think they are too dry try drinking with your food. Milk is perfect with their cakes. I love the icing and I love the cakes that I get from them. They listen and they do good work. Try their cakes for your self and you just might like them. If you want to try a sample of their cakes get a cake square. They are small and cheap and you can even just buy one. Give them a call they are good

Was recently at a party (Adults & Children)...the cake was pretty so I asked who made it & Spartan Bakery was the answer. I overheard a little boy who was asked if he liked the cake...he replied "No, it's not sweet enough". I thought, oh he's just a kid, what does he know. Well, when I I got my piece I could not believe it. Totally tasteless & NO FLAVOR at all!!! Needless to say there was plenty leftover, but no one wanted to take a piece home. I know the hosts were embarressed...hope they called to complain. I would never shop there !!!!!!!

I have been a Spartan Bakery customer for many years. In the past twelve years, 90 % of my cakes have come from there. The last experience I had with them will keep me out of there for the next twelve. I ordered my son a Red Velvet cake for his birthday party. Of coarse he had the first piece and he said mama this icing doesn't taste like cream cheese. I tasted the cake and agreed. I called the bakery and explained that we thought the wrong icing was put on our cake since when we arrived it wasn't ready. The lady politely told me to bring it in. When we got there, they took it through the curtain used at least three fingers to swoop icing off my cake. They brought it back and told me it was the correct icing and expected me to take the cake back to the party with three finger prints in it. They insisted that it wasn't nasty with the finger prints because they had on gloves. Needless to say I informed DHEC of their unsanitary practices. They refused to issue a gift certificate or any kind of refund. Buyer be ware: There are just some things "professionals" should not do!!!
I think the major disappointment was due to the previous year me having a problem and it was rectified immediately. I inquired about it and that's when I was informed the business had changed ownership.

I have an issue with the person handling my food order using the same gloves to run the cash register and handle money and then once again handling food without changing gloves. Money is the nastiest thing you can touch and not changing gloves after touching it is very unsanitary. This has happened to me each and every time I go to Spartan Bakery. I even asked her once is she planned on changing gloves, and she remarked that she would change them in the back. She did not like that fact that I questioned this.

Here is my situation. I placed an order about 4 days in advance to ensure my cake would be ready. We agreed that 3:00 was the pick up time. It was to be an oscar the grouch cake using the Oscar pan so it would be in the actual shape of Oscar and then be decorated to look like him. When I got there my cake was not ready. When I looked at the cake it was just a regular rectangular cake with Oscar the grouch drawn on there. I couldn't exactly leave without a cake so I was willing to accept the fact that they pretty much lost my order and hurried and did this. At the party i noticed none of the children would eat their cake. So I got a piece and then realized why. It was beyond dry and the icing had no flavor. Had someone to actually get choked trying to swallow their piece. I have to say I contacted them and the lady I spoke with was very nice about it and is sending me a gift certificate so I can try them out again which I am willing to do because anyone can make a mistake. I will give a report of when i try them again and see if it taste better. Thankful she was so willing to fix the problem. That means allot to a customer for sure :)

I LOVE Spartan Bakery! My boyfriend and I went in not knowing what we wanted for my birthday cake and they were so helpful and patient. They gave us ideas and respected our opinions. We were in there an hour and not one time did they seem rude, or ready for us to leave. I plan on going back for any cake I ever need they are that great!

i have always gone in the spartan bakery periodically over the years and i think the 'GREATNESS' and the 'QUALITY' depends on the owners... the cake squares are still great, though, yummmmm :)

Spartan Bakery was always my first choice when it came to birthday cakes for my children. I absolutely loved the frosting and I would occasionally go buy some of their cake squares "just because" I wanted some cake. However, I ordered a cake for my husband's 40th birthday and when I went to pick it up the day of the party, the staff had no record of my order. They misplaced the ticket so there I was on my husband's birthday with no cake. I can't tell you how upset I was...especially when they tried to act like it wasn't their fault and then proceeded to give me the "what do you expect us to do about it" attitude. They even tried to suggest that maybe I hadn't placed the order. But, once I showed them my ticket with the paid receipt, they had to admit that they screwed up. I asked for a refund and told them I would never be back. From what I've heard from friends...the service has only gotten worse :(

We have used Spartan Bakery for years, and have always been very satisfied until the last 2 years. The last three cakes were simply awful. My children could have done a better job of decorating, and the cake was very dry. We ordered a skateboard cake which was not recognizable, a horse's head cake which was cartoonish and a ballet slippers cake which looked more like ratty bedroom slippers. The horse's head cake was the worst though. I ordered it one week in advance. I scheduled pick up at 4:30. When I got there I almost cried it was so terrrible. I was told they would fix it, but not before being told "I don't know what you expected, we are not artist". I asked then what were they if they were not cake artisit. Anyway, they fixed the cake, somewhat, charged me $48 for it after telling me that they would not charge me for it, and I was late for my child's birthday party. Needless to say I have found another bakery. Never again will I use this so called bakery.

I have been looking for a good bakery to make my wedding cake and had been told by many this one is the best in town. I have read the reviews and understand they have wonderful cakes. I am a bit taken back by what has been posted about someone that is a customer there. I really think that maybe the owner should take this into consideration and realize that maybe they do have some unpleasant employees. I do not think that in all of my years of reading reviews on a business I have ever encountered anything like this. I read these to decide if I would like to use this business but I have never read anything so rude and hateful. I think they may have lost my business before they ever had it. I really hope they can remove this post I am afraid they may lose business because of this

My family has been using Spartan Bakery for longer than I have been alive. The Bakery was sold a few years ago and has not been the same since. If you want your cake to be ready when you get there you had best tell them you need it at least three hours early. They have also had a very hard time making the cakes correctly. If you tell them you want half white and half chocolate you will probably only get white. I even cut the top layer of my wedding cake to give people chocolate and that layer was white as well. They do not decorate cakes the way that you ask and the cakes are not level. I think the reason that so many cakes are dry now is because they are so slow. I think that they start on orders for Saturdays a few days ahead of time because they can not get them all made in time. They never have any extra cakes on Saturdays that you can call and pick up and for that matter if want a cake for Saturday you had best let them know by
Wednesday or Thursday or they will tell you they can not do it. When the other owners had it you could call on Saturday morning at ten and pick a cake up by twelve. This makes me very sad because we use to go there and spend $75 at least every week. My Family went there so much we received a nice discount. Which of course now has been cut to ten percent because evidently keeping the good old customers was not important to these people. They have completely run this Bakery into the ground. Everybody everywhere is talking about how horrible it is now. The one thing that we all have in common and that keeps you going back is the taste of the cake. These people would no longer have a business with out the recipe to the cake. The cake when made fresh you can not find a better tasting cake. These people had better be glad they found a Bakery to buy with the best cake around or they would have already had to close their doors and cut their losses. Had to give them three stars because the fresh cake deserves ten but they just do not have a clue about running a business especially a Bakery

I have been going to Spartan Bakery for many years and have always had great service and loved every cake I've ever gotton from there. If I go to a party and Spartan Bakery cake is being served, I can't pass it up. I hate to hear bad reviews because soooo many people love the cake and the icing. It is just a differnce in opinions.

Best icing ever and driest white cake there is anywhere! Decorating is a little amateurish as well to have been in business for so long. I decorate cakes myself and I could do better decorating than they do.

I picked up a 50th anniversary cake along with 120 cake squares. The cake was beautiful. When we started to put in in the back seat, we were told the cake had to be flat, so the lady with me held the boxed cake in her lap. It was a large, 2 layer cake with a 50 on top. We probably went 3or 4 blocks before it looked like the frosting was sliding off the cake. We tried to go ahead but decided picking it up was a bad idea, & returned to the bakery. We didn't have a problem paying for a delivery or paying extra to have the cake "re-frosted"..it was their attitude! They were very defensive! They wanted to know "What did you do?" Then asked if we cut our air conditioner off in the car! When I went back into the bakery, a different lady asked me if I had went inside a store and left the cake in the car! I told her ,"No, I just left here". I had pulled off the road at Events Rentals on Main St. to call them & they told our client that we had went there to shop. The place was closed! We had just pulled into their parking lot. Why tell a lie? It ruined what would have been good relations for them with about 100 guests.

I ordered a cake from spartan bakery for my daughters 16Th b-day. I picked it up on Saturday July11,2009. It looked great!!! But when we cut the cake and began eating it ... it was really not that good, it had no taste to the cake nor to the icing on the cake, it was very dry!!! I was very disappointed I paid allot of money for this cake, I feel i could have got a better tasting cake from Walmart, or bi-lo I will not buy a cake from them again....This cake was not worth what I paid for it....Very Dry.

I ordered my daughters Minnie cake from here, with a picture in tow. Was told they could do it. Got it today, 2nd birthday, and it was ugly! They did an awful job and they had a picture. I should have gone to Publix, or any grocery store for that matter. I cannot comment on the taste because we returned it for a full refund, my husband is on his way there now...way to ruin a child's birthday. I am not hard to please, but if I could have done a much better job than they did, it wasn't worth $5 much less $37.

Spartanburg Bakery has been located in our area for many years. My family has personally used them for almost every occasion. They have a wonderful staff, offer many selections, and their cakes are to die for. I have never been able to find any other bakery that could hold a candle to their cakes. Many times I find my own family stopping by simply to pick up a few cake sqares for a quick snack. You simply must try them!
