    The staff at this cute little bakery are really kind. The promised a moist, delicious cake and they accomplished it! The cake was ready on time and pick up was a breeze. We only served the first sheet cake, which was a buttercream/cream cheese based frosting, red velvet cake with a chocolate ganache filling. Yumm-O! It was almost like a brownie and had a lot of flavor. We had a full sheet cake left over that we ate later, which had the same frosting as filling with the buttercream-based texture. It was okay. Not as good as the first cake, but it was definitely moist and enjoyable. Great prices and great cake!

    We knew early on that we wanted the Blackmarket Bakery to make our wedding cake. We loved their made-from-scratch philosophy and had ordered a cake previously from them for our engagement party, which was delicious. Although we wanted a visually pleasing cake for our wedding, our main priority was that we wanted a tasty, yummy cake. We felt the Blackmarket Bakery had the yummy factor completely covered.

    When we initially called them to put in the order for our wedding cake we were met with some slight hesitation on their part about committing to our order. To their credit, on their website, they EXPLICITLY say that they DO NOT make wedding cakes. I was a bit confused by that, but not deterred, and when I talked to Traci on the phone, things became a little more clear. The Blackmarket Bakery does not make "wedding cakes" in the sense that they don't want to make you a cake that looks EXACTLY like the ornately decorated cake in BRIDE magazine that you may be in love with. Apparently they have had issues in the past with these kind of expectations.

    However, our experience with the Blackmarket Bakery was NOTHING but positive. I assured Traci that our priority was taste and flavor, and that we were wanting a very basic, simple design for our three tiered cake. We discussed teal and creme fondant alternating teirs, with a criss-crossing ribbon design, for which we provided the ribbon. Although she told me that they don't do exact replicas, based on the ideas we came up with and the example photos I brought to the bakery, our cake not only tasted amazing, but also looked EXACTLY how I envisioned it. The decoration and color was perfect, and the overall look of the cake was extremely sleek and modern, which was exactly what we were going for. On top of all that it was soooo great tasting. We froze our top layer (Banana Split!!) and I don't think we will make it a full year before we're dying to unthaw that baby!

    Overall, we were pleased with the Blackmarket Bakery and I'm glad were weren't so easily deterred by their "no wedding cake" policy. I would say that if your priority is a great tasting cake then I would completely recommend Blackmarket!
