Very disappointed in the lack of community support this bakery extends to the non-profits in the local area. They could make such a great name for the establishment with just a LITTLE generosity. Alas, "all take" from the community "and no give" just doesn't speak well of corporate management!
WOULD LEAVE "NO" STARS, BUT THAT IS APPARENTLY NOT AN OPTION!

In two weeks they doubled the price of the exact same cake from $80 to $160!! This is the second time they've increased the price on me from what I was quoted. Can't be trusted. It doesn't matter how good of a product they had a year and a half ago for my wedding, the new management is unprofessional and even hung up on me!! Not worth ging back to.

I ordered a cake from this company to surprise my partner for his b-day biggest mistake i've made! Just picked up a cake that is suppose to feed 30 people yeah right! I will be lucky to feed 10. I payed $86.00 for a tiny cake that looks like crap. I am very dissapointed! When I spoke to the manager Ericka there was nothing she could do. Absolutely ridiculous!This place is a rip off! DO NOT TRUST THIS PLACE FOR ANY SPECIAL OCCASIONS THEY WILL RUIN IT!

We recently returned to Albuquerque after a 13-year absence, and apparently this place has changed ownership or management.
They were always good quality and dependable, almost always exceeding requests, in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
We wanted an angel-food cake with fresh strawberries in the middle, but the dumb clerk on the phone didn't know what that was. So, we ordered the small ""festive"" sheet cake for about $30.
When we picked it up, we were so disappointed that we asked for a refund or adjustment, and the very rude clerk refused. The cake looked like it had been decorated by our 10-yr-old, with almost no decorations. Our family and friends ate only a few bites of their pieces, and even the kids left most of their slices on their plates.
The cake was heavy and the icing was greasy, not at all the ""butter-cream"" frosting we paid for. It was supposed to be a ""strawberry"" cake, but it tasted like the indeterminate fruity flavoring common to dollar-store, made-in-China snacks -- definitely not fresh, and it left an awful after-taste.
We asked to speak to the owner, but she hid out in her office.
From other reviews that recounted encounters with her, we're probably lucky we didn't see her face to face.

I am new to Albuquerque and LOVE cupcakes and have been making it a point to visit the top cupcakes locations in the area. This seems to be a great cake place but I wasn't impressed with their cupcakes. They didnt taste fresh and were not moist at all!!!
I've used this bakery since the mid 80's and never thought of going anywhere else. They've changed owners and now the cupcakes are microscopic at the same price. Anything you order has an extra price attached to it. Seriously, it's not the same bakery, not the same old fashioned customer service like it used to have. I will not shop here any more. Too bad. Don't waste your time or your money. There are better bakeries in town.
I've used this bakery since the 80's. They changed owners and now the cupcakes are microscopic at twice the price. It's not the same bakery, and does not have the same old fashioned customer service like they used to have. Every order has an up-charge attached to it. Believe me, there are other bakeries in town that have the same flavor and are less expensive. There are better bakeries in town. Be wise and buy elsewhere. This long time customer has walked away for good.
