The service is superb. The waiting time is short but the quality of products is superior. I wouldn't buy cakes anywhere but here!

I am a big fan of their work but they really messed up our son's 1st birthday's order. They were not in a position to fulfill the order like they promised due to some issues. We kept calling them and didn't hear back from them until 4-5

Some one wrote "abusive service" and too many 1start reviews if you look. I totally agree with them, I should have listen them.
If they misunderstand you, they will tell you unkind very sad words, I got hurt with the words. I would never recommend anyone.

Being a designer I was really interested in bringing other creative people into the planning of my wedding reception. My husband and I had an unconventional wedding so I wanted an unconventional wedding cake, too. I approached Mike??s Amazing Cakes with an idea but kept it vague because I thought Mike might want to have room to play and bring some creativity to the mix. Wrong. Mike never met with me. He sat on the other side of a door while I talked to his assistant. She??d run back and repeat what I said (I could hear all this) and then he??d say something in response (again, I could hear!) and she??d come back and repeat it. It was so annoying. Well, we went through an hour of discussion because it turns out Mike wants to be told every single detail. Luckily I brought some photos, told them the shape of cake I wanted and exactly what decorations. I left at least satisfied that we??d have a decent cake but was a little disappointed that zero creativity came from Mike. Well, time went by and we were getting ready to leave for our destination wedding (the reception being back at home) so I called to check in and make sure everything was on track. Yes, they assured. Did they need anything before I left? No. They told me they??d check back in with me when I returned from the wedding. Well, we returned, days went by?no word from Mike. I finally contact them again to make sure everything was on track and only then was told they have lost my photos and plans and I need to tell them again what I want! Only this time Mike doesn??t want me to come back in the office again. They??d prefer an email. I was luckily able to find all the information again and provided it to them again. But I really did not have the time at this point to be spending literally hours working on this for them. Plus, I really believe if I hadn??t contacted them repeatedly we probably would not have received a cake for our reception. Further, I no longer had any confidence this was going to be anything close to ??amazing?. And I was right. It was the bare minimum of what I asked for and adequately completed but not well done. I didn??t set a tight budget, this was really important to me. But it was skimpy in some respects. For example, I specifically asked for a cascade of white chocolate shells down the side. I received a trail of shells, one wide like stepping stones, down the side. It was stupid looking and I??m sure they knew that was not a cascade. I don??t think anyone at Mike??s Amazing Cakes cared about my order and ordering my cake from them is honestly one of the only regrets I have about my wedding reception. Find someone who really cares and brings something to the table and you??ll be much more amazed, I??m sure.

Pros: We had a cake at our reception at the end of the day.

Cons: No creativity, poor customer service, not amazing.

Beautiful and truly amazing cakes. He can do any design imaginable. The cake though - is just okay. However, if you want to wow your guests with a very cool design - use them. If you want great tasting cake - so someplace else. On the more spendy side too.

We were married on 1/1/09, and Mike's did our cake. Since my husband and I met online, discussing books, we asked Mike to make a cake that looked like a giant fairytale volume lying open on the table, with an inkpot and quill on top. What he created was a cake that some of our guests actually thought was a book. People were totally over the moon about this cake. Of all the little details we planned for the wedding, the cake reaped the most compliments. Or, at least, it was neck-and-neck with the bride! We chose a lemon cake with raspberry buttercream, and not only was the cake stunning, it was absolutely delicious. Their buttercream is to die for. You won't be disappointed if you go with Mike's!

Pros: Gorgous, delicious, not nearly the price I would have expected for something like this.

Cons: You can't have your cake and eat it too.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful the people at Mike's Amazing Cakes are! I planned my wedding from across the country, which meant ordering my cake over the phone. I exchanged a lot of emails with them, and they came up with the perfect design. They let me have my parents come and taste cake so that they could advise me.

When my wedding day came, the cake was everything I dreamed of! And even more delicious than my mom and dad said it was!

Thank you to everyone at Mike's Amazing Cakes!

My daughter and her new husband really wanted to get their wedding cake at Mike' Amazing Cakes. When we all went to sample the cake and talk about prices, I was very suprised to hear the prices. I was sure that the prices would be high, considering his notoriety. The price we were quoted was considerably less than other area bakeries.

When the cake was delivered, it was exactly what my daughter had hoped for, and I heard many comments from guests who enjoyed the delicious cake.

.

The cakes on the site are impressive, they truly have made some amazing cakes. Just don't count on them to make yours just as amazing. We ordered a wedding cake with stained glass pattern on all tiers, top and sides. When the cake showed up (a little late, although 520 traffic was exceptionally bad), it only had a stained glass pattern wrapped around the side of the middle tier, and sticking up half an inch from the tier like a rail. Nothing on the other tiers or the top of the middle tier. They were wholly unapologetic about the delivery time and dismissive of our strong opinions regarding the quality of the cake. We paid over 300 dollars for this half baked turkey, although it did taste okay. Judging from the positive reviews and great cake designs, it might be worth it to take a chance on Mike's. But buyer beware! You truly are taking a chance.

I called a month in advance to order a cake for my mothers 80th birthday. No one answered the phone so went to their website to start the order process. After four days of emailing, I left a message for Theresa to call me back to place the order. I had ordered two cakes before so I knew I liked their cakes. For the next week, I called several times each day trying to get someone one to answer the phone to place my order. Finally, a week after my message and 11 days after I had started this process (and still 2 1/2 weeks from my event) I get Theresa on the phone. When I tell Theresa the day of my event, she rudely tells me Mikes?s cannot not book anymore cakes for that day. Even when I explain that I had been in contact with her by email and left a message. She responded by telling me, "I return all messages that are left and if you had left a message, I would have called you back, and besides (she says), we were booked up for that date a week and a half ago anyway". I found her to be rude and combative. No please, no thank you for calling, no sorry we can't fill your order. I felt like my business was not wanted or needed.

Pros: Cakes were good in past, but didn't get that far this time.

Cons: Service was horrible

.

The only negative thing I can say is that the wait to actually sit down and talk to someone about a cake is too long. We waited about 5 weeks from the time we booked it until the actual appointment. However, they don't charge a fee for a consultation or tasting, unlike other bakeries.

If you have to wait, ask them what days they have public tastings. We were able to go and taste a bunch of flavors before we had our appointment.

At our appointment, we were offered two flavors (no choices). The woman looked at our picture and quoted us a much lower price than the other place we'd gone to. All in all, it was totally worth the wait.

This place is awesome. We had a rough idea for our cake, but it was a kind of strange idea. We were sure they would laugh at us. When we met with the lady at our appointment, she was really nice. She took our wacky idea and showed it to Mike. The cake ended up so much better than we imagined. The best part was that it was way less expensive than we thought it might be! Mike and crew do an amazing job!

My daughter's birthday cake was spectacular! The employee was so helpful when we met. She helped me bring my idea to life and the cake eneded up even more beautiful than I imagned. The bonus was that it was delilcious, too!

Thanks, Mike! Keep up the amazing work!

I chose Mike's Amazing cakes to make my wedding cake. I visited several other bakeries and was surprised to find that not only was Mike's cake delicious, it was the least expensive! I wanted a very simple dot pattern, and was able to get it at Mike's for less than what other places were charging for their cakes with no pattern.

My only negative is that you have to wait a while to get an appointment. But the good thing is that they have an open house once a month or more, and we were able to go to one and try eight different kinds of cake. We had 2 more flavors at our appointment. They also let me pick up samples to take home another week so that we could try the flavor that we wanted.

The cake Mike's made for my husband's promotion party was perfect. I had ordered chocolate cake with tiramisu mousse, with his new stripes on it. Not only did it look great, it tasted heavenly. I don't normally like chocolate, but even I liked this cake. Way to go Mike's!

Wow. I'm shocked at last reviewer's attitude. Not only was my own experience completely different ( I saw Mike's Amazing Cakes at the Seattle Wedding Expo, and have to say, they were all wonderfuly polite, very knowledgeable, and helpful even when there was a huge crowd all asking questions at the same time) but to have actually spoken of a stranger in such a slanderous fashion, is, well beyond description. It makes me question this review.

Cons: warehouse environment not the romantic cake tasting setting I had envisioned.

A few years ago, my friend had ordered a wedding cake from Mike's Amazing Cakes, which I thought was good and, according to her, affordable. In the midst of planning my wedding, I called Mike's Amazing Cakes to schedule an appointment for cake tasting. The earliest availiability was 5 weeks later, so I reserved it.
In the meantime, I tried other bakeries, and had absolutely wonderful experience with them. My only hesitation is the high cost. On the day of my appointment , I left work downtown early enough to beat rush hour traffic. Having arrived half hour later, I waited in a room when a large female employee stepped in and asked who I was and why I was there. She then rudely said I was too early and walked away. I ignored her ill manners, deciding she had a bad day. She came out with a dish, and shoved it right into me, said "Well here you go", and was about to walk away. I was *completely* caught offguard, but tolerated it a little bit longer. She had given me only two flavors - poppyseed and dark chocolate ganache. I asked if there's other flavors I could try. Other bakeries offered 4-6 flavors, which seemed reasonable to me. She gave me this condensating look and said that it was all they had. I asked how I would know which flavors to choose if I couldn't taste them. She barked : "If you like what we have now, take it. If not, then we can't help you." Finally, I couldn't tolerate her and told her not to speak to me in that manner. She said, "That's it, I am done with you." I demanded to talk to the owner, and Mike himself came out. I told him, that it's completely inappropriate to speak with a customer, or rather anyone else, in that manner. I was excited to try their cakes, and was looking forward to this for 5 weeks. This is what I get? He apologized, and had the employee apologize to me. While he did acknowledge her ill manners, I lost my desire to taste whatever they had. Why should I pay for abusive service? No thank you.

Mike of Mike's Amazing Cakes has won awards for his cake designs. I have sampled his wedding cakes a few times and have not been disappointed. He creates custom designs for whatever you want and he comes up with some ideas to present to you beforehand. The cakes are as beautiful and delicious inside as they are outside. If you want a truly unique cake for your wedding or special occasion, you should check out Mike's Amazing Cakes.

It's a puzzle to me how two people can have complete opposite experiences at the same place.In the previous review, the user states frustration with mike's amazing cakes customer service. I found the staff to be incredibly helpfull and surprisingly low or no pressure in their approach to what I was looking for.I would agree that they did tell me what could be done and what couldn't and what additional costs might be involved.Don't know about you, but these are things I want to be informed of as opposed to being upcharged or added at the end after I've made up my mind.The reviewer mentioned shelly in their rant.Well I met with her as well and spoke with her on the phone on three seperate occasions and was met with nothing but courtesy and patience as she helped me make up my mind on a cake that was very important to me and my family.Shelly didn't spend my time telling me what she would want, she helped me figure out what I wanted. As for taste, the samples I had were truly decadent and delicious.They had samples that day. They had samples I could take home. They had some sort of sample open house a couple times a month with several flavors I could try. I have to say that mike's amazing cake's can be a little over whelming in that they are a custom shop and you have to figure out what you want from the ground up.There are no predetermined designs. This could be frustrating for those who want to get in and out quick. Lastly I'd like to add that as I was picking up my cake there was an elderly gentleman also picking up a cake.When I asked what he was celebrating, he said they just love the flavor of a paticular orange cake they make and they buy one every month or so.

It's a puzzle to me how two people can have complete opposite experiences at the same place.In the previous review, the user states frustration with mike's amazing cakes customer service.

Pros: cutomer service, taste, quality

First and foremost I must say the cake I ordered was beautiful! Mike is truly an artist. The taste of the cake was not for me.

As far as the ordering process goes it was the worst experience. Shelley kept telling me "you can't do that" or "that will cost extra". She offered no ideas. When we went into the office to meet with Shelley contact at Mike's she didn't have any samples for us to try. Mind you the appointment had been scheduled for weeks!

If you want a good tasting cake at a reasonable price go to Remo Borrachini's (??spelling.) If you want a creative/artistic cake go to Mike's. If you want to be incredibly frustrated and be told "no, you cant do that" or "that will be extra" then make sure you place your cake order with Shelley.

I haven't directly worked with Mike's Amazing Cakes but, I have tasted their cakes 3 times. I love the talent that goes into the cakes. It is truly unique and amazing. I have many favorite fun designs. However, the cake itself has been inconsitant the 3 times I've tasted. The first time I thought it was fabulous! I was bragging about how good it was. The second time the cake was dried out. I wondered if it was originally frozen. I was very disappointed since I raved so much about it. The third time I tasted it, it was better than the secong but was still on the dry side. Because of this, I will opt for another baker to make my wedding cake.

I had a very strange request for this bakery. I needed a bathroom themed cake and they did a very tastefully designed (and very tasty as well) cake in the shape of a plunger! It was wild and wacky and made my plumbing wife quite happy!

Pros: creativity, quality ingredients

I needed a special cake for my 5-yr old's birthday and THIS WAS THE PLACE. They set an entire hour aside to answer every single, possilby annoying, question I had. They virtually interviewed me concerning everything about our party to make the best recommendations on design. The options ranged from little cost to elaborate sculptures for hundreds of dollars. I really appreciate the choices and time taken to make my special event even more special. And, in the end, it tasted FABULOUS too.

Pros: Customer Service, Flexible pricing, good locaton

Cons: lead time

I called looking for a cake that serves 12, since Mike's website says they can do a cake for as little as $17.00 - I thought I might be able to get a decent pretty cake for $50.00 or so.

I was quoted $220.00 for a basic design and was told that I could get no more that a frosted 10" cake and not much of a design on it for my budget. When I asked if this "not much of a design" would look good, I was told - "No, not really".

I appreciate the honesty, since I don't want to buy a $50 cake that doesn't look good. Seems like they should take the $17.00 cake off their list of possibilities though, obviously they only want the $200+ business and don't try to hide it.

The cakes are fabulous! My cake was not only a work of art but I have never tasted anything better. They only use real ingredients, nothing fake or artificial. Wonderful stuff.

I was really suprized when I went to pick up my cake from Mike's Amazing Cakes. This cake truly looked like a Pacific N.W. Salmon. It tasted great too. The variety of choices I had in cakes and fillings was mind boggling.

Pros: Good Cake, Great Designs, Good advice

Recently I placed an order for a birthday party & I was very dissappointed with the outcome. The cake was not designed asked, considering they can make a cake to look like a life size grand father clock I figured making a simple birthday cake would be easy. The coloring was not as we had requested and was very unfinished looking, the writing was messy and the cake itself was very dry and unflavorful. Over all it was not amazing! They had nothing to say for themselves not even an apology, becuase of this I will never give them my business again. I reccomend looking elsewhere or being very firm about what you want and hope that it helps. Just and FYI I paid $170 for a basic sheet cake that fed 25 with a a simple pattern and most of it went in the garbage...talk about a waste!
