After paying several bakeries to taste their cakes and escaping some pressure-sales tactics at these same places, we decided to explore the possibilities at a bakery that we are familiar with for birthdays and other events in our families.
Caputo's provides high quality cakes and prompt delivery for weddings in addition to all of the other events that they bake for. We were happy to sit down with Jenny, their representative at the bakery in Addison, and sample the various types of frosting, custard, fruit, and cake that they have to offer.
Not only was the service friendly and stress-free, it included advising. Caputo's will mimic any design of cake that you request and will help you understand which fillings and frostings will best support your vision (so that the cake won't melt in a warm venue or cave under the weight of the layers). They also accommodated our request for a gluten-free cake that would serve those guests who cannot eat the regular one and they were willing to negotiate with us.
Our cake was beautiful, tasty, and affordable, and the customer service was very personalized. This was absolutely the best choice for us!
The reason that we reduced this rating by one star is that the cake estimate for number of slices was a little bit off, so at the actual event, about two hundred slices were served and we still had so much cake going home that some had to be discarded. Even splitting huge segments of cake among friends and family, we were overwhelmed with the leftovers. We froze a good amount of it, but it was too much to even keep in our freezers. We've been told that you can never have too much cake, but this quantity was immense!
Overall, we were very pleased with this vendor, and the appearance, flavor, and quality of our wedding cake.
