Jeanine does a wonderful job with her cakes --- ours was delicious, moist, and our guests raved about it. She has many varieties and was happy to customize to suit our tastes. My wife wanted a champagne cake, and Jeanine made us one soaked with actual champagne. Excellent! The middle layer was chocolate with ganache filling, and it was hands down the best chocolate cake I've ever had. Her prices are reasonable, and her service is top notch. She's even making us a fresh top layer to celebrate our anniversary, free of charge. I can't recommend It Cakes the Cake highly enough.   --C Lawson, 01/2021

       It Takes The Cake created the most fabulous custom unicorn cake for our daughter's birthday. Not only was the cake a visual masterpiece the cake and strawberry filling was amazing. We highly recommend It Takes the Cake and look forward to the next opportunity to work with them.  --Victoria C, August 2020

Jeanine went above and beyond my expectations. She made a birthday cake for me a few years ago and it was amazing. I reached out to her again for my Mom's 70th bday cake and she did not disappoint! The cake turned out gorgeous! I highly, HIGHLY recommend It Takes The Cake!   -- Liz R October 17, 2019

I must say it definitely takes the cake to complete the party. Jeanine perfectly executed the vision I had for my daughters 1st birthday cake along with a matching smash cake and beautifully decorated cupcakes. It looked great and taste even better!! Everyone loved it!  --Charlene D 08/2018


Jeanine made me two outstanding cakes for my wedding. Very pleased and happy on such a wonderful job!! She’s very understanding, kind and very responsive. Exactly what I imagined and hoped for!!

"Taco 'Bout A Baby"  She loved it and you did an amazing job.  Thank you so much!  - Christina R 04/2018

As a member of the Wedding Industry myself, I expected nothing but the best from “It Takes The Cake”. I was not let down in the least, Jeanine was kind, courteous & very responsive. I told her what I wanted my wedding cake to be and she definitely delivered. Our cake was very elegant, delicious & exactly what we wanted!  -- Saber 10/21/17

I don't usually do reviews however I definitely had to send one in reference to the satisfaction that we felt for our daughter Zoë's 1st birthday cake.

We have gone through many vendors to have things done in the past and I must say by far this was one of the best experiences that we've had with working with a company for placing a order and having everything executed professionally perfect.

Special thanks to Jeanine for being one of the sweetest, most professional and, caring owners that anyone can ever encounter.

Thanks for making Zoë's Birthday Cake such a huge success! We will definitely be using you again!

Very grateful,  Sandra J    -- 5/17/17

The cake was a hit! Everyone loved it, including the birthday girl!! Thank you so much for working with us on such short notice and for making a great cake at that!  -- Demekai S  3/17

Jeanine is AMAZING!  Not only does she take every detail into consideration, her cakes taste even better than they look (if that is possible).  She is an honest woman that will go great depths to make your cake perfect.  She has even seen small details of parties
we've had (bday shirts, invitations) and included pieces of them on the cake.  I've stopped even worrying about the cake and just given her the theme and idea and she runs with it and it's amazing.  It's always the focal point of the party.  You can't go wrong with her!!!
-- Emily S

I wish I could give 10 stars! Mrs. Lynch made our wedding cake for us. I had an idea in my head, emailed her pictures of different aspects of cakes, and basically described what I wanted my cake to look like. She took it from there... and WOW!!! It turned out exactly how I had pictured it in my mind! By far, my FAVORITE thing about the entire wedding was my cake!!! THANK YOU It Takes The Cake, for making my special day all the more special and memorable!Those seeking a baker with precision, uniquness, and artistry need to contact Mrs. Lynch! She will amaze you!

-- Kathryn P

Thank you so much for our beautiful cakes! I absolutely loved them and you truly did an amazing job. I have already posted a Google review for you, but I wanted to share pictures from our wedding. I have attached all of the ones my photographer sent me. We will definitely look you up the next time we need a cake!

-- Kristen W

Excellent!!! Everything from the conversations with Jeanine to the actual look and TASTE of the cake. The cake was beautifully designed by Jeanine from just our conversations and to top everything off it tasted Great, everyone was raving about the cake (and these were 16 year olds, very hard to please)!!! I will surely be calling It Takes The Cake for my next event!!! Thank you!
-- Theresa F

I am eating a piece of my delicious cake right now.  It was perfect!  Just beautiful and way above my expectations.  The taste is delicious and buttery.  I kept the chocolate center for myself (wink).

Thank you for all you have done to make the day very special. Please let me know how to do a special review for you.  Thank you again,






I got both my wedding cake and my groom's cake from It Takes the Cake. This is strictly an online business so all of your planning is done over email, which was actually really nice. I drew up a detailed description with cakes similar to what I wanted and emailed them to Jeanine. She was very easy to work with and very open and honest about pricing, choices, and what would/wouldn't work. Jeanine made a custom-designed wedding cake for me including flowers in between layers. My groom's cake looked like the Adventure Book from the movie Up with our wedding date added. It looked amazing as well and the cover even opened to allow you to see the "pages" underneath. Everything turned out beautifully and I couldn't have asked for a nicer company to deal with. They were even early to my venue to make sure everything could be set up in plenty of time. Highly recommend Jeanine and her amazing team! -- Amanda L 10/2015

I wanted to take a moment and thank you again for the WONDERFUL job on the cake. My family was BLOWN away and my brother was overjoyed! Everyone was in such awe that we didn't even cut it. They might have today. My brother had a video visitation scheduled today and they were going to sing and cut the cake. We live on opposite sides of town so I didn't make. I am sure it tasted as great as it one has made a complaint and my family is quick to "express" how they feel. lol thanks again YOU ROCK! I look forward to working with you again! God Bless and goodnight!

-T Smith, 3/2016
