If I could respond with no stars I would as well. This review is intended to counter the false review previous to this one. We, at Sweet Secrets Cake Shop did not participate in the Living Social deal. We do not even sell cake by the slice. We do not leave notes on the door unless we have communicated prior with the visiting customer. We always know how fresh our cakes are because we bake them by hand. We take online reviews VERY seriously. We found this review highly outrageous. We have no idea how many negative false pretenses this has created for our potential new customers.
If I could give a no star rating, I would.
My husband purchased a living social deal for this bakery. The initial impression was disappointing. He went to the bakery and was greeted with a hand written note that stated they would be back in 10 minutes. After waiting 30 minutes, a couple showed up to unlock the store. The gentleman working the counter was unsure about the prices when asked he replied stating “I think that one is $3" and he was also unsure when the items were baked, having to ask his girlfriend/wife if things were baked today or were a day old. After choosing 4 cupcakes and a slice of cake they did not have bags to place the items in and proceeded to empty a Wal-Mart bag he had in the back with other items to place the purchased baked goods in.
Hoping that the desserts taste made up for the less than great service and presentation, we saved them for after dinner the same day (maybe 4 hours later). The cupcakes tasted about a week old and I wish I was exaggerating. The bread was hard as a rock. We had given one to our mother-in- law earlier that day without telling her about the bad customer service experience and received a call after she had tasted it asking where we purchased these from because they tasted days old.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!
After looking long and hard for a delicious and beautiful brides cake, I decided to order a birthday cake for my niece. OMG! The cake was fresh, not frozen like the ones we have already tasted. The frosting was perfect, not overly sweet. The design is just what we have been looking for; something fresh and simplistic. Fresh flowers were assembled on top to add a special touch and it did. I recommend this to all who are looking for that special cake. You cannot beat the price or flavor! We have booked her for the wedding and plan to use Sweet Secrets Cake Shop for our up coming family gatherings! You should too!!
