Bay Village, OH
I was notified several days before Christmas that the cake I had ordered for my brother in Bay Village, OH had been lost by the delivery company. I was asked if I wanted a refund or another cake delivered. I opted to have them send the second cake. That was done quickly and successfully. Given that the cake was going to my 91 year old brother I was pleased that it got to him, thank you. The fact that the first package was lost in the mail is excusable, of course. Having the second package sent to him with all deliberate speed was commendable! It teaches me that I can send gifts to him knowing that this company will be sure that he will get it indicates respect for the customer and the process. It is much appreciated.

was very good
The cake and icing are tasty - but the part of the cake that is deeply in the syrup is too wet and mushy for our taste.

Very Limey and glaze was wonderful
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
This was a big hit with the folks at our little dinner party. It was delivered on a Friday, to be used on Sunday. Kept it in the fridge until Sunday A.M. I don't think that the cake was "at its best" when, just before we were ready for coffee and dessert, I went to drizzle the icing on. I heated it as suggested , but it didn't get sufficiently "molten: to drizzle down the sides. Icing had a wonderfully tart taste. Largest part of cake was perfect - moist and very flavorful - none of that cloying Key Lime flavor found at most restaurants. What I saw and tasted that left me with a 4-star rating, rather than a 5, was the extremely wet portion of the cake in the center where the bundt hole is. This area was more like a pudding - not light and tasty like the remainder of the cake. Throughout the cake was extraordinarily well- flavored. Just did not care for the extra moist consistency in the middle.
This Bundt Cake was Very Good, Moist and Taste! Loved it, so did my company. Would order again!
Delicious. Moist. Couldn't have been better.
EAST SAINT LOUIS, IL
The cake was delivered moist and delicious.
The cake was soggy and stale, and it tasted much like a bakery product from a chain grocery store. Disappointing.
