When was the last time you had a piece of wedding cake or birthday cake? Do you remember what it tasted like? Did it blow your mind? If you’re like me, you cannot wait for a reception dinner to wrap up or the candles to be blown out so you can have that small (or VERY LARGE) piece of cake sat right in front of you. It is by far my favorite part of any wedding or party!

A cake represents a lot about a person or a couple – what they like and their personal style. It can mean just as much for a wedding shower, baby shower or birthday party. So if you’re going to say something about yourself through cake, shouldn’t you find a bakery that speaks volumes!?! The Cakery is just that bakery for me here in St. Louis! Nestled in Dogtown (on Tamm Avenue), the Cakery has been exciting my taste buds for the past 5 years now. If you want a quick taste test, just stop by the Cupcakery in the Central West End for a sweet treat! They had me at “cupcake” and will have you too!

For weddings and parties, the Cakery has a wide assortment of cake flavors, fillings and icing – creating a butter cream tasting to die for! I’ve done it once and I’d do it again if I could. Not only is the cake itself amazing, but the design options and variety are too – attempting almost any cake or cupcake design imaginable. There won’t be crumb left in the place – I know because I’ve witnessed it. The Cakery creates sugary goodness for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, showers or office parties – just be sure to call ahead because they’re super popular!
