Were To Start! First all I Have never done this before I never do REVIEWS, but I had to SHARE! My Sons's 1ST BIRTHDAY we ordered a super hero cake, I was so EXCITED. I had NEVER ordered from this place before but I LOVE CAKE BOSS and saw This placed appeared with him. So this mom decided it was a good choice to go with. How WRONG I WAS!!!! THE CAKE WAS A MESS! the characters were cracked and were all placed wrong. The Cup cakes we got you could not even tell what the symbols were! Lets not forget when we cut the cake it fell to pieces!!We Served CRUMBS!! Needless to say I CRIED! My husband decided to call the ownerto tell him what happened and our experience and this is what he said... " I REVIEW EVERY CAKE THAT COMES OUT OF MY SHOP AND I DON'T REMEMBER A SUPER HERO CAKE BEING MADE" Hmmmm What does that tell me!....... He stated " LET ME SEE PICTURES SEND THEM TO ME I WILL INVESTIGATE AND GET BACK TO YOU" So we sent him a few pictures of the cake!! GUESS WHAT?? He is ignoring our calls, he does not even have the *&%! to call us back!! At least tell us something!! Now im having to plan my daughters 15TH BRITHDAY and is going to choose very careful who i go with this time around! I give this place 0 STARS but it did not let me. 1 star is too much!

Where do I start...
Yes the place looks nice from the outside but results are terrible.
I ordered a sesame street cake for my sons birthday... A $300 cake!!! I expected a nice cake with a 5 characters and paid for each. There was only 4.
I told the place I would pick the cake up at 10am. Our part started at 1 and I wanted to see it early incase it needed changes. I arrive at 10 for a girl to tell me it isn't there. It was at a different location and they were waiting for it. I told them I didn't have time to wait and demanded it be delivered at our party which only lasted 2 hours. 11 am comes around... 12 am I call the other location for the 5th time and someone says it wasn't even complete yet, they lied to me. Imagine if my party was earlier!? I wouldn't have had the cake at all. It didn't arrive until 1:40!!! The characters and cake over all looks hideous and were falling off the cake. One actually arrived dangling. Never again. I tell everyone I know NOT to come here. No wonder stores are closing down. I demanded a refund and to my luck NO ONE COULD FIND MY ORDER!
"they are more then willing to remake rebuild a cake"? Ha what good is that? To receive it after our party? If it was done poorly before why would I want another cake from them. Yes they are made by humans. Humans can only take on so many projects at once so why take on more orders than you can handle.
It is not bashing it is warning people of can happen if they order a cake from here and the customer service they will receive.

Every negative review I've read on this page is over exaggerated. The Cake Shop prides itself in providing customers with excellent service and product. The only problem is, some customers are hard to please. Humans, not machines, put time and effort into constructing these cakes. When you bring in a detailed picture of a purse, cartoon, etc., you can't expect the cake to be exact. It's a cake! Sometimes colors and details will differ because they are working with materials that are not the same as the real deal. On the other hand, I know that customers pay a lot of money for these cakes, and expect perfection. However, again, humans make mistakes, and I know for a fact, The Cake Shop is more than willing to rebake, rebuild, and hand deliver any cake that is not up to standard. The Cake Shop has generations of experience, so they aren't hurt by the people who have nothing better to do than bash their business. If you're an ex customer, or even an ex employee, I suggest you get a life.

I'm a little disgusted with the service we received. We ordered a cake for our father as a surprise at my sister's wedding this past Saturday. When my boyfriend picked it up while leaving the parking lot he had to return because the cake was wobbly. He brought someone to carefully hold the cake in the truck and they drove cautious for fear of the cake getting messed up. Staff at the cake shop insisted they secured it and stated the helmet (it was boots on the bottom with a soldier's helmet on top) which was made out of rice crispy treats was making it heavy possibly making it shift. We did not ask for it to be a crispy treat, the staff insisted it would be better and since we are not experts on cakes we took her advice. When I got to the reception the lady in charge took me where the cake was being refrigerated. I called the cake shop and the man I spoke to said everyone was leaving and basically there was nothing that could be done as I asked if someone could come to the reception and fix it. He asked for a picture and I sent it and he told me he would call me right back. He never did and because the cake was ruined we could not take it out when it was time to wish our father happy birthday. It's embarrassing that so much money was invested into this cake and nothing was done about the situation.
This was sent March 15th and I have yet to receive a response from the cake shop although they had time to call the reception where the wedding was held b/c the lady from the reception was polite to notify me. The wedding took place March 12. This is bad business. I do agree with the others that the restaurant next door Sushi Zushi is amazing as I'm a regular there.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE EVER!!!! I am a faithful H.E.B customer but when I could not get a cutom design Barbie themed cake I went to The Cake Shop. I told the manager what I was looking for and that I needed it on Sunday. They informed me they open from 10-5pm on Sundays, no problem I said I would be there at 10 am. I showed up at ten but they didn't. They didn't show up until about 1230 and by that time I had already purchased a different cake from HEB! Go figure. They didn't want to return my money, offered to deliver my cake but honestly at that point the party had started and I already had a cake so what was I going to do with another one? They are very expensive and for the price I paid for their cake I expect nothing less than outstanding customer service whiche they do not. My advice is to stick with what you know and NEVER go to this place.

Thanks Cake Shop for making my daughter's beautiful cake this weekend! The cake was the star if the party and was so pretty we didn't want to cut it. We will be back in a couple months for my mother's 60th birthday! Thanks again for never disappointing!

While visiting San Antonio I discovered this hidden treasure. My husband was celebrating his birthday so we took him out for dinner. On the way we drove past The Cake Shop and stopped for a cake. They have a great selection in stock and were able to personalize the cake in a matter of minutes. The Cake (Italian Cream) was incredible and we ended up getting some red velvet cupcakes, my favorite. Everything was out of this world. I highly recommend The Cake Shop.

Just want to say I have buying my cakes from The Cake Shop for over 5 years. My wife and I bought our wedding cake from them, baby shower cakes, birthday cakes and any occasion cakes from their store. The quality of the cakes has always been superb as well as the decorations and the service. I have been in the food industry for over 15 years and know how hard it is to do this kind of work and The Cake Shop has always impressed me. I would not hesitate one bit in buying anything from them.
P.S. The store manager (Natalie) is very knowledgeable and very helpful.

I ordered a cake from the Cake Shop for my daughters first birthday. My wife and I sat down with the person taking the cake order and told her the design we had in mind. We told her that we wanted the cake colorful in pastel colors and the cake not to be so sweet with ladybug designs all around. When we went to pick it up and the cake looked so bad. It was only pink and yellow, the ladybugs were pink with black dots on it and no faces. The cake was sooooo sweet, it didn't taste good either. To top it off, the writing on the cake was in BLACK! Common sense would say you don't write in black for a baby girl's first birthday cake. I could see that being done on a 40th birthday cake, but not a 1st birthday cake. The cake was soo expensive for the type of work that was done, I think I could have done a better job myself. I won't recommend this cake shop to no one!

Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness in bringing the delicious cake for our office. It looked so good in the shape of our logo that we almost didn??t want to cut it (but we did). It was delicious and was a hit with all of us! Once it was cut, it didn't stay around long. Thank you again!

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed Carlos' birthday cake! It was so delicious, but we almost hated to cut into it because you did such a wonderful job with the parachute! My husband really loved the skydive (he was not scared at all!). Thanks again for the wonderful cake!

Purchased a wedding cake and was appalled. First of all, it was so dry it was barely edible. To top it off, the flavor that we requested (a favorite of the bride and groom"s) was incorrect. When I called the shop to speak w/the manager (Perla), was told rudely that she was not in. I left my number but she never called back. I will NEVER use them again as this was an expensive disappointment.

I purchased a cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday this past weekend and the cake was so beautiful! The decor matched my daughter's theme exactly, and the cake looked wonderful as the centerpiece to my table. All of my guests were amazed, not only by the way the cake looked, but also how it tasted. We ordered the butter cake with the butter cream icing, and it was fantastic. I defiantly recommended this shop to my friends at the party.

I used to work at The Cake Shop, and let me tell you, it is discusting! The baker does not use a spoon or spatula to scrape the side of the huge mixing bowl that they use to mix the cakes, instead he uses his hands! Yes that is right, he puts his whole arm in the bowl and scrapes the doe from the sides of the bowl then scrapes the doe off of his arm back into the bowl! I was appauled to see this! Also they leave their colored iceing out on the counter in bowls over night! They use box mixes too! Why spend hundreds of dollars on a box mix cake? If their fruit is moldy they rinse it off and dip it in Chocolate anyway! I will never buy anything from them again!

I purchased a wedding cake a few months ago from The Cake Shop. It was over $500 and I was very disappointed with the product. I gave photos of the colors and design I wanted. The finished colors on the cake appeared fluorescent. The colors were similar to what you would find on a child??s birthday cake. It was also supposed to have fondant dcor which they charged me for and instead they used buttercream.

The tiers of the cake were smaller than what I was told I would receive. When we cut into the butter cake tier there was a large 5?x5? portion that was completely over baked. It was dark brown and hard. It was very upsetting considering the cost of the cake. I brushed it off since it was after all my wedding day but, the poor customer service didn??t end there.

When I originally brought my cake stand to them I specifically asked them to keep the box it was in for proper storing. The employee put a yellow post it on it. When I went back to the shop to retrieve my box I was told they would track it down and call me back. Three days later I still received no call. I went in again to ask them to give me one of their cake stand boxes and let them know I never received a callback. No one seemed concerned at all. The female owner asked how the cake was so I explained my concern about the over baked cake and she looked at me as if I were crazy. She never once apologized and never offered to give me any portion of my cost back. All she said was she would talk to her cake decorator about it and of course I never received a callback. I will never buy a cake from them again and I will strongly discourage anyone from doing business with them.

Never purchase your wedding cake from The Cake Shop!!!I purchased a Wedding Cupcake Tower from the Cake Shop and the experience was a complete DISASTER! The cupcakes were not only below par, but the way the owners and delivery people dealt with the issue was even worse. When the cupcakes arrived to my venue 1.5 hours before my wedding reception started, they were not only smashed together on giant cookie sheets in the back of vans, but completely MELTED. When I looked at them I gasped "they are melted!" (of course), to my surprise, the lady seemed not to care and asked if she could set them up anyways! I asked her to call the owner Perla and the delivery lady refused and scuff, "you can call her". I finally got the number to the cake shop and told the lady who answered the phone about the situation, but she would not let me talk to the owner. It took me 30 minutes to get a hold of the owner at the store. Meanwhile the delivery lady was so rude to me remarking that "they were JUST cupcakes" and that she had never even delivered for the cake shop and she did not work for them (although I have seen her in the store before). In the end, they took the cupcakes back, wiped off the melted icing and re-iced them and sent them back. All the wrappers had icing all over them and they look terrible. Finally, at the end of the night, they did not leave a box for their 15 piece glass stand (which had a $150 deposit for returning it not broken) nor for cupcakes or the $50 small (anniversary cake) on top! This was the WORST customer service experience I have ever had. Could you imagine spending $500 on 150 cupcakes and having them look like your little sister made them at home? Because of how I was treated and the below average product I received, I warn all brides (and others) to AVOID the Cake Shop at all cost. It is not worth ruining part of the best day of your life!

I finally got the number to the cake shop and told the lady who answered the phone about the situation, but she would not let me talk to the owner. It took me 30 minutes to get a hold of the owner at the store. Meanwhile the delivery lady was so rude to me remarking that "they were JUST cupcakes" and that she had never even delivered for the cake shop and she did not work for them (although I have seen her in the store before). In the end, they took the cupcakes back, wiped off the melted icing and re-iced them and sent them back. All the wrappers had icing all over them and they look terrible. Finally, at the end of the night, they did not leave a box for their 15 piece glass stand (which had a $150 deposit for returning it not broken) nor for cupcakes or the $50 small (anniversary cake) on top! This was the WORST customer service experience I have ever had. Could you imagine spending $500 on 150 cupcakes and having them look like your little sister made them at home? Because of how I was treated and the below average product I received, I warn all brides (and others) to AVOID the Cake Shop at all cost. It is not worth ruining part of the best day of your life!

I purchased a wedding cake from the Cake Shop in San Antonio and unfortunately it fell apart on my wedding day so I didn't get to serve cake to the guests. It was a shame because when I went to the cake testing I specifically asked about delivery to Austin and was told they could not deliver that far. I asked if the cake would stand up to my transporting and was told yes it would. On the day that I picked it up, I asked if I should do anything special until driving to Austin and I was told no other than to transport it on a flat surface. I took the cake home and set it on my table with no direct sunlight (it was over cast) and the AC at 70 degrees. 2 hours later and 15 minutes into our drive, the cake collapsed on itself. When I called the cake shop, one of the owners said that if I brought the cake in and paid them $100 they would fix it. They also told me that the cake should have been picked up and transported directly to the reception area and that it should have been refridgerated until serving. When I talked to the other owner he told me it was my fault and that I should know how to transport a cake. I contacted the BBB but unfortunately they didn't respond. I did get a $100 gift card which is better than nothing but I haven't used it yet. I was disappoinged mainly with how the situation was handled by the owner. Fortunately, my wedding guests were very understanding but again, I will always remember that there was no cake on my wedding day.

I am not a consumer, but I WAS an employee. After working there and seeing the things I did, I wouldn't even recommend my closest friend to this place! I worked there 3 weeks and couldn't take anymore. Three days after I quit, I noticed that my paycheck bounced.. which was my very 1st one. I contacted the owner who told me that they would take care of it. A week later he sent me 3 more checks which I tried to cash THREE TIMES & couldn't because he didn't have the funds! Here it is a month later & still haven't seen a penny for the entire 3 weeks I worked there! Hopefully between the DA & the Texas Workforce Commission I'll see my money soon.
I know this is suppose to be for consumer reviews, but I want all consumers to know that if they do this stuff to their employees then they'll do it to their customers.. and they DO!
I searched the Better Business Bureau website and found some interesting info on them. This site won't allow me to post the link, but just search their name on the BBB website.

DON??T COME HERE FOR BUSINESS!!!!
I recently purchased my cake here and it came out NOTHING like how it was suppose to. The cake is usually the focal point of the party, however when it looks NASTY, and your embarrassed to even put it out it??s NOT a happy experience. Especially when you pay in excess of $47, and you get the most HORRIBLE customer service you have EVER seen from the Owner!
This is exactly what happened, when I purchased a cake here for a friend??s bachelorette party. I came to the shop and brought them a photo of how I would like the cake to look. They ensured me that they could recreate the cake. I left the shop and came back three days before the event to drop off my cake topper. I doubled check one more time to make sure that my zebra cake would have full strips and NOT V??s as what was seen on their cookies. They said YES and even pointed to a set of zebra plates to reference the pattern.
When it was picked up, it looked NOTHING like the picture and had V??s not strips all over the cake. If you didn??t know it was suppose to be Zebra cake you would never know. It??s exactly what they ensured me it would NOT look like. They said I could bring it back and they would fix it, so I did and they did it again, only to come out WORSE then the first one. I had no other choice but to take it because it was already time for the party and 7??o clock when they closed. It literally looked like my little sister made it.
I immediately called them the next day which they told me to do if I was unsatisfied and they would fix the situation. So I came by Sunday left my number and was instructed the owner would call me back. I received NO phone call, so then I called Monday left a message and got NO call back, so then I called Tuesday left a message and got yet again got NO call back. So then I finally got the chance to get out of work early on Wednesday and stop by. I arrived and they finally get me the owner on somebody??s cell phone.
HE WAS THE MOST RUDEST PERSON I HAVE EVER TALKED TO! Not only did I have track them down, he said he could not do anything for me but give me a SMALLER cake. He said if I didn??t like it I should have left it. NOW REALLY? I??m really just not suppose to have a cake for my party? Does that make sense. He not only argued with me he was the most UGLIEST person ever. I will NEVER go there again.

I've been a customer for a few years and had 2 specialty cakes made...the armadillo and a coyote (cupcake) cake....the cupcake coyote was amazing artistry but the cakes extremely dry. I chocked it up to being cupcakes and the time to decorate. Yesterday, for the general manger of an exclusive retail store I bought a chocolate cake from the refrigerator section...it was totally dry and very disappointing. I got a frequent cake card and to tell you the truth, I don't think I'll recommend it to any one. I called to voice my disappointment and was told the manager would return my call....it hasn't happened!!!!

My experience was uncannily similar to the one described in NikiJohnson's review. I too was sold a cake that was stale and dry. Like Niki's, mine also fell apart and crumbled when touched. In addition, the icing on mine peeled off in places. The flavor was non-existent, like I was eating cardboard. Easily the worst cake I've ever had. Two other guinea pigs tried the cake and felt the same way. We had to throw our pieces away. The cake was so bad I pulled it and refused to serve it to the rest of the guests.

I called immediately after the party to complain. The owner/manager asked me to bring the cake in so he could look it over, and I complied with this. He looked at it in the back room out of my presence and came out afterward to tell me nothing was wrong with the cake. He even said that the style of cake I had was supposed to be that dry (it's not). Then he tried to shift blame by suggesting the dryness was my fault for serving the cake too soon after removing it from the refrigerator. He seemed to be intentionally ducking and dodging to avoid any sort of responsibility for the cake they sold me. I told him I wanted my $55 back and he flat refused. He offered to trade out the bad cake for another cake but since the party was over this was not meaningful compensation.

He could have easily made this right and created good will if he had handled the situation with any semblance of good customer service. However, he chose not to do that and has lost a customer. After reading other reviews I see this happens a lot with his shop. Eventually they will exhaust their clientele with this combination of shoddy product and customer service.

Buyer beware: my experience included both a low quality product as well as poor customer service. I purchased an Italian Cream cake from The Cake Shop for a birthday party that was held the next day. When I cut into the cake to start handing out pieces, it was so dry the body of the cake crumbled at the edges and the icing peeled off in places. If you picked a piece up with your fingers, it would crumble in your hand. I and two others tried the cake to see how it tasted and it was like cardboard - bone dry and flavorless. The pieces we tried ended up in the trash and it was determined that the cake was too poor a quality to serve to the other celebrants. This was a milestone birthday, so it was quite the disappointment considering I specifically chose a specialty shop for the express purpose of serving a high quality cake. Instead, I received a cake too inedible to serve.

I called The Cake Shop after the party was over to lodge a complaint about the cake and ask how to seek redress. I spoke to an owner/manager, who instructed me to bring the cake back to the shop so it could be inspected. When I arrived with the remains of the cake, it was taken to the back room to be looked at. Once this was done I was told by the owner/manager that he didn't think there was anything wrong with the cake, that these types of cakes tend to be more dry, and that he stood behind his product. However, I have had other cakes in this style that were moist and tasty, so I found this stance puzzling. Even though the shop gave no serving tips, he tried to shift the blame to me by suggesting that the dryness of the cake may have been my fault if I didn't let it rest after removing it from the refrigerator. At this point I asked for my money back and was refused. He offered to compensate me by trading out for another cake, but this held no real compensatory value considering the party was over and the need for a cake no longer existed. When I explained this I was told that it wasn't his problem. I found this answer particularly maddening because his business is built around providing baked goods for specific events held on specific days. Selling me an inedible cake that left my event without its center piece betrays the whole reason he is in business.

Upon further reflection, I think they sold me a stale cake that had been in their display case for a while but refused to admit to it. The fact that the cake was terrible is not the reason I'm writing this review. I was willing to chalk the bad cake up to an anomaly and not let it affect any future purchases if the problem had been handled with good customer service in an effort to engender good will. Many places have earned my repeat business by handling a complaint in a positive manner. The Cake Shop seemed determined to do just the opposite, and in this economic climate it makes no sense that they would take this tack when they serve a niche market. After all, their cakes are pricey and one has to assume that their clientele is naturally limited because of this. Intentionally alienating a customer and inviting negative feelings about their product and customer service makes that clientele even that much smaller and the kicker is they really don't seem to care. Hopefully my review will prevent others from finding themselves in the same situation with this shop.

My family is from England we call our mother "mum" so when I told the lady on the phone, "Write happy birthday MUM" and "Happy anniversary MUM and dad" on the cakes, all of them turned out wrong. After I had explained to them, please make sure the cake says mum and not MOM since we don't call her that. When I picked up the cake, they showed me it and she asked me if there was anything wrong with it, and I said, "It's supposed to say Mum" - the proof was there on the receipt as well, she asked me if that was a problem. UMMMMMMMM DUH! I just get so upset because it's like spelling Mark - Marc or something like that. Anyways - besides that the cake is really good, we order buttercreame cake with raspberry filling and buttercreame icing.

If you enjoy boxed cake mixes from Betty Crocker and Duncan Hines and paying an arm and leg for something a 10 year old can throw together then The Cake Shop is perfect for you.
I was very impressed with their cakes until one of my friends got a job there after finding out they had such a great reputation. Since their store is located across the street from an HEB about every week the owners buy a huge cart of boxed cake mixes from them. Not even discreetly, either.
The decorating for their cakes is somewhat less than impressive as well for the amount of money being charged.
The only thing "homemade" about their cakes is the fact that the icing is actually put together on the premises. Apparently, it's a great feat to throw butter and sugar together into a mixer. As a Baking and Pastry Arts major, this place shames me.

I only tried one of their cheaper cakes that I bought for a friends huge birthday bash but only got to try a small sliver of the cake. This place is located in a small store in a strip mall behind the Starbucks. I would highly recommend you visit this place for wedding cakes as I think they sell those too but I am not sure. This place makes fancy cakes so I would not be surprised if they make wedding cakes. This place is sort of expensive though so beware!
