Wedding Extravaganza

For my daughter's wedding, we had cakes on every table instead of flower centerpieces. We wanted modern, beautiful cakes in different flavors that we could cut for everyone to sample later at a cake bar. Kathleen did an awesome job, beyond anyone's expectations. The table numbers were in white chocolate and people were three deep to try flavors like red velvet and white chocolate and grand marnier. The cakes were cl... view more

Yuk!!!!!!! Why is this bakery rated so high?

Visiting Denver from Washington state. I ordered a birthday cake; chocolate with white buttercream frosting. The cake itself was gorgeous, but that is all I have good to say about it. Very dry cake (did you guys make it weeks before and freeze it)? The frosting was absolutely tasteless. These folks could take lessons from Cakes by Karen in Lake Havasu AZ. Perhaps they are more concerned with looks rather than ... view more

Gateaux is GREAT!!!

I brought in a vintage circus table cloth with an idea of how I wanted them to create a cake for my son's first birthday. I wasn't totally clear on what I wanted, but one of the owners sat down with me, made some great suggestions, and asked me to bring in good photos of the specifics that we agreed upon. I did just as she said, and met with the other owner where we finalized details, price (which was very fair I ... view more

Flavorless and dry cakes

Looking for a wedding cake, we heard great things about Gateaux. We went for a tasting, and were terribly disappointed! We tasted two of our favorites, Red Velvet, and Tiramisu. Both cakes were extremely dry. There's just no excuse for that. The tiramisu was practically flavorless. The red velvet cake was really dense and dry. The first red flag was when they pulled the red velvet out of the freezer!! The but... view more

so-so

I am a fanatic lover of high quality sweets - not overly sugary concoctions, but flavorful desserts that rely on freshness and creativity instead of sugar. Unfortunately, the birthday cake I bought from Gateaux was good, but not excellent. The cake layers were quite dry. It was also very skimpy on the fresh peaches, which was the part I was looking forward to the most. Each big slice had maybe 3-4 tiny bits of pe... view more

Bad Bad Bad

I called Gateaux on a recommendation from a friend of mine in January to see if I could set up a tasting for my wedding cake. She asked when the wedding was and I told her it was set for November. I was immediately informed they would not be able to help me. I was pretty surprised that they would just turn business away like that. My husband and I decided to go to Child's Bakery, which was absolutely fabulous and ext... view more

Great desserts, so-so cakes

If you've never tried Gateaux's mini-pastries, you're missing out. They are fabulous. However, their cakes are NOT good. I have tried two (thinking the first one was a fluke) and they were both the same: bad. They are dry and the icing is not sweet at all - actually, I kind of agree with the other reviewer who said it tastes like Crisco! I think it is a French way of baking, maybe, but if you like traditional butterc... view more

If you want delicious and memorable this is absolutely the BEST!

Gateaux Bakery has become one of the cornerstone vendors I call for every event I plan on a corporate basis or for my personal parties. After every party I am always asked by several people where I got those fabulous...... and I am proud and confident to refer to Gateaux. I have hosted several Valentine Mother/Daughter tea parties and the cakes cookies petit fors and Strawberries make my party. The little girls ... view more

Bad Customer Service

I wanted to have a nice cake made for my husband's birthday. I found Gateaux's website and thought it would be a good place to try. I went into Gateaux and told the woman working I wanted to order a birthday cake. I also told her my husband has a nut allergy. She said they won't make cakes for people with allergies. Then she made the comment, ""how can you even go out to eat?"" and ""it must even be hard to cook... view more

User review by wendim

My office gets a Birthday cake from Gateaux once every two months. Last month we got a chocolate on chocolate cake and it was very sweet and I do not recommend it. I do however recommend the other cakes they have to offer. The are a bit high on the price range but look more like a work of art then something edible. The staff also delivers if you are downtown in their vicinity (which we are).
