Their decorations are pretty good but i do feel they are extremely over priced. And I was not pleased with the taste too much fondant and cake and icing are extremely sweet.
Loved the Cake and the Service! – I was very happy with Vicki and her willingness to set down and help me choose a cake, and visit with me about other wedding stuff too. She was incredibley busy and always made tome for me and my questions.
The cake was absolutely amazing, so pretty and tasted so good. Cost was reasonable. I couldn't be happier with the outcome! Thank you Cameo!!!
Embarrassed Cake Customer – I have ordered 4 or 5 cakes from Cameo Cakes within the last year. Overall they have been decorated nicely. I was extremely pleased with 2 of them.
However, 3 of those cakes have been really dry. To top it off, there has been barely any icing on the cakes except for the 2 times I requested more icing be applied.
I recently ordered and picked up a cake that needed to travel and was advised that it would do so at time of order and pick up. As it turned out, the second portion of the 4 layered cake was not centered on top of the bottom level correctly.
In addition, I had mentioned to the girl that took my order, for said cake, that one layer of her drawing (cake) probably wouldn't be needed and might make the cake top heavy. She reassured me that it would be fine. The cake was top heavy. This weight ended up collapsing the bottom layer on the side of the cake that it had been mis-centered on.
As I'm sure all cakes are...this cake was for a very special event (100th Birthday)! I can not tell you how embarrassed I was to show up with a collapsed cake that I purchased for over $240.
I had another lady who makes layed cakes for a living look at the collapsed cake. I was advised by her that the cake was not leveled or centered. Out of the goodness of her heart she created another bottom level to present at the party. The cake she made was moist and so much better than the $200+ cake I had purchased from Cameo Cakes. Her cake disappeared quickly while I had trouble giving away the rest of their cake 'after' the event.
Needless to say, the embarrasement and cost of a product that did not meet any quality standards has left me no chioce...I will not be using their services again. Nor will I be recommending either.
One of my favorite places – I have used this bakery for many years and absolutely love it. I used to live very close, but now drive 20 miles (past several other bakeries) because they are just so darn good!!! The employees are always very friendly and helpful. There have been times I have given them basic request, but left details up to them and I have always been thrilled with the cake designs they come up with. I love being able to go by and get cookies as well.
