This vendor provided us with our wedding cupcakes. When we first met up with them, they provided a fantastic sample platter and had a variety of flavors to choose from. We went with orange, lime, butter pecan, chocolate and a few other yummy choices. They set up cupcakes just like we had requested at our reception. Everything was fantastic- definitely recommend this vendor if you're looking for a wedding cake in Calgary!
We found a picture of a cake at a wedding show and when we presented it to Judy, she had never before created a cake quite like the one we chose. However you never would have known it! The cake turned out beautifully! It was a stand-out on our wedding day, with many of our guests going over and gawking at it during the reception and cocktail hour. Also, after taste testing multiple cakes, we found that Judy's cakes were by far the most moist and delicious.
The only downside we encountered with Cake Sensations was the communication after the cake was chosen and the deposit given. Even after emailing and phoning to get information about final payment methods and to confirm delivery, we would not hear back for days to a week. This did add a bit of unnecessary stress to the final weeks before the wedding, but it was all undue, as Judy ensured the cake was perfect and was delivered in perfect shape exactly on time.
I would recommend Cake Sensations to ANY of my friends with future wedding plans - in Calgary or anywhere in the region, as we got married in Banff and Cake Sensations delivered our beautiful cake there no problem!
We rented our wedding cake from Cake Sensations. The decoration and craftsmen ship of their cakes is above all other cakes i've seen! The cake we wanted happened to be too large for my vehicle so last minute we were able to pick a different one - which was beautiful as well. If you want an elegant cake I would recommend Cake Sensations!
Everything was excellent. The cake was absolutely beautiful and delicious! Our planning meeting was so easy and comfortable that I knew I wanted to choose Cake Sensations from the beginning. There were models, styrofoam tiers to play with, and lots of pictures for inspiration. It made designing a cake easy and the visuals made me confident in my choice. Judy was also happy to make a dairy free tier for me, which most vendors wouldn't do. She also made the cake fit in my budget by adjusting the sizes of the tiers while keeping the height.
She also made a croquembouche for the groom's cake. It was incredible! Very tasty and very pretty.
We were completely satisfied.
Firstly, I must start by mentioning the positives. I am a gluten free bride and our wedding cake was delicious. Additionally, it was beautiful and constructed perfectly. However, we experienced communication issues with this vendor that were stressful. Note, she wanted payment in full 6 weeks before the wedding but does not make this clear in her correspondences. This lead to stress for the people that went to pick up the cake. We had sent her the money transfer online the week before the wedding as we had done with all our vendors and sent the people going to pick up the cake with the cash deposit (which she would not accept a cheque to hold without having time to deposit it which seems strange to me for a deposit) and she demanded that the balance be paid in full from the people that picked up the cake even though we had already sent her the money. After sorting things out with her, she then informed us that we should have paid 6 weeks prior and that the e-transfer was missed by her. What I don't understand is why we didn't receive an email reminder from her about payment 6 weeks earlier because is it such a strange payment schedule. We would have gladly cleared things up then. My honest interpretation is that we didn't receive the same level of service because of our comparatively low budget compared to the other brides she works with. As well, given how small our wedding cake was (it was smaller than I had expected), I do not feel it was good value especially because it was essentially just a white cake with ribbon on it. That said, it was perfectly executed. All in all, the service we received was dissapointing, I don't feel we got the cake we should have for the money we spent, but that said, our gluten free cake was both beautiful and delicious.
It was a pleasure to make Ashely's wedding cake. We are so very sorry that the payment terms caused stress. That is why we have them clearly marked in the contract, signed by the bride or groom at the time of placing their wedding cake order, to prevent confusion. We extended the payment schedule to accommodate this couple's situation. When final email transfer didn't arrived until 2 days prior to the wedding, despite several reminders, it was missed amid weekend wedding deliveries. When the cake was being picked up, the individual was asked for the cash balance, which we had explained by email, several days prior. There were no "demands", just a pleasant conversation.
We give equal service to all clients, regardless of the size or value of their order, recognizing that every wedding is an important day!.
We feel that it is important that all couples know exactly what they are ordering, so at this, and every consultation meeting, we assemble a display cake that is the exact size of the cake that is being ordered. We also provide samples of our cake flavour choices, so that they can taste them, also.
We are very disappointed that this bride was unhappy with her order, as we did everything we could to explain, and show her what her cake would look and taste like.
