hi! i got married @ the rookery june 2009 and we used alliance bakery for our cake. i really wanted carrot cake and they did such a good job. here is their website ( i think they may be on the pricey side (~$800 for 120 people), but all my guest comment on how good it was and they did an awesome job with the design too. my best friend used benison (sp?) bakery in evanston and i think they got a good deal, i dont remember too much about their cake, though. good luck!

We did a small cake and cupcakes from Sweet Mandy B's in Lincoln delicious and reasonably priced! If you want a large cake, check out "Bake For Me" and if you want something incredibly fancy....CakeGirls. However, be warned about cakegirls as we were married the MCA downtown and the dropped their contract with cakegirls as there were a couple situations where they NEVER made the cake...I hear they are beautiful, but not sure about reliability?

For a cake that tastes as great as it looks, I recommend Oak Mill Bakery in Niles or Vanille Patisserie in Chicago. Our wedding was at the Palmer House Hilton, which has a contract with Take the Cake. Our 5-tier cake looked BEYOND amazing, but lacked in the flavor department. CakeGirls is no longer an option because the bakery unfortunately burned down on 3/30/10.

LUTZ Bakery! 2758 W Montrose Ave Chicago IL 773-478-7785. My family has been ordering cakes for over 35 years! Here is my wedding cake, theme was 'A Perfect Pair'. I just ordered a cake for my nephew's baptism this weekend. And have ordered Bridal Shower cake for my sister Aug 09, baby shower for my sister in law Jul 09. I'll upload those pics as well.

My sister's Bridal Shower cake. Also from Lutz Bakery. Unfortunately it smashed on the left side but that was my fault when taking it out of the box.

I just got married last October and we used Dinkel's Bakery. I'm attaching a link to their wedding cake website, but I should add that you may not be too impressed with what you see.

Dinkel's is known for having fantasticly delicious cake and our's was definitely delicious. I didn't really like any of the designs I saw on their website, so I designed my own. It was very simple and I can my florist decorate it with flowers, like those used the the bouquets.

The other bonus is that they are very inexpensive, we only paid $650 for our cake, including delivery.

But, if you are looking for a highly artistically designed cake, this would not be the place. If that is the case, you might want to check out Amy Beck - her cakes are awesome, but you will pay about $10 per slice.

Hope this helps!

Fritz Pastry went above and beyond what I expected. I can't stress enough how much I think you should at least stop in and talk to either Elaine or Nate about your wedding. They have been getting such incredible press and they deserve it!! Nate was even voted one of the 10 most important chefs in Chicago!! If you're looking for amazing desserts that not one of your guests will forget, this is your place. Here is a link to their Wedding Wire page, with a much longer review from me...
