I love the sourdough bread. Of course the desserts are an added touch. Seriously, San Francisco could learn something from Baker Street Bakery!
I have been purchasing cakes from Karen for my kids birthdays and other occasions since before she had her storefront. They have always been delicious and exactly what I had asked for. I have recommended here to several other people who have had nothing but good things to say about her business and her cakes. I enjoy purchasing from a small business and am glad to support her.
Delicious selection every time I have gone in. My one stop shop for all my holiday needs. So many cookies, cupcakes, french macarons, and brownies that I don't even know what to do with myself.
I had ordered a half sheet cake and 36 cupcakes three and a half weeks before my husbands 40th surprise birthday party. I had paid half of the order total when I placed my order. I drove over a hour to her shop to find out she had never bothered to make my order and the only employee there couldn't find my order. The only thing Karen offered to do to fix the situation was for me to wait until she showed up to bake a cake. In my opinion she should have offered to make it and deliver it. I had to scramble to get dessert for 50 people. Never will I recommend her and I wished I had read the last reviews on her
After seeing one of the cakes at a party i decided to purchase for my daughters party. That was then and this is now is how the story ended up. Bad experience
The cannoli cake is fantastic! I have baked for over forty years and have never had a bad cake from Sepcial T! The cinnamon rolls are huge and so good! Great cakes at a really great price!
I ordered a cake from Cakes by Karen because she was one of the few places that was willing to do a 3D cake. I asked her to do one for a surprise party. It was a little on the expensive side for how small the cake was. However, she surprised me and threw in a dozen cupcakes, hand delivering them to my home just before the party. The cake was delicious and everyone LOVED the design of the cake. It looked very realistic and tasted great. I'd have to say that the price was worth the design and taste.
I paid a lot of money for a cake that turned out to be pretty bad. I let the owner know I was unhappy, but got no response. I regretfully paid for the cake because I had no time to get a new one elsewhere, because it was the day of a surprise party. The shape and decorating looked very rushed and my request of what I wanted it to look like and say, wasn't really incorporated as much as I expected. The cake itself wasn't very good. The cake frosting and filling wasn't what I asked for. I wouldn't recommend this business to anyone, unless you have almost $100 to waste.
A few months back I ordered a cake for a very special party I was hosting. When the cake showed up it was absolutely beautiful. However, when you cut into it and it was served it was so dry it was crumbling apart. I also ordered the cake in vanilla and amaretto. You couldn't tell the difference between either flavor. I received several complaints on how horrible it tasted. I paid over $200 for this cake so I was upset. I called and spoke to the owner. I told her exactly what I explained above and she could care less. She acted as of I was lying. She wasn't willing to do anything for me. No apology. No call back to offer money back. No discount offered on a future purchase, not that I will ever order a cake from her again!!! By the way, when i showed up for my scheduled appointment with her for a tasting she wasn't there. Her staff looked at me confused BC they had no idea i was coming. I drove over an hour and a half BC i don't live locally and the staff said she went home BC her daughter was sick and they asked me to come back another time. I understand going home for a sick child but a phone call would have been appreciated! Of course i told her staff that i had traveled far and i would need one of them to do the tasting with me. They weren't pleased but they did it.It's been stewing inside of me for a few months so I figured I would at least share my experience on here and maybe save someone else from being treated the way I was.
