cake sweet food chicago, formerly take the cake, is a small Chicago bakeshop owned by Mary Winslow specializing in wedding cakes and favors. We believe that each and every wedding cake should be a reflection of the unique qualities of the couple. We enjoy creating cakes that are personalized and stand the test of time, whether they are inspired by a song, architectural features of a favorite place, or the thoughts and dreams of couple themselves.

Recommend! Especially for Gluten Free :)
We had the BEST experience working with Jo-Anne from CAKE for our wedding! From the very start of the planning process, she was responsive, flexible, and accommodating. As an out of town bride, I had limited availability to meet in person, but she worked hard to adjust her schedule so that I could come in person with my husband and our parents for our cake tasting. We so appreciated this!! We had a blast at the cake tasting – her cakes are absolutely delicious, and she has so many incredible flavor combinations to choose from. One of the things I am most grateful for is Jo-Anne’s willingness and ability to accommodate for those who were gluten free. I (the bride) am gluten free, and we had approx. 15 gluten free guests as well. Without hesitation, Jo-Anne offered to make a separate gluten free sheet cake in a dedicated gluten free baking facility, slice them into individual pieces, wrap/package them, label them, and deliver them to our venue. All of our gluten free guests (myself included) were SO excited to be able to enjoy some wedding cake!! Both the GF and regular wedding cakes were absolutely delicious!!! Without a doubt, we will be recommending Jo-Anne to our friends and family, and will be ordering from her again for other special occasions :)Sent on 01/20/2020

Unique & Special!
Jo-Anne blew it out of the park with our cake! We felt so loved, heard and well taken care of by her and her team! She is extremely accommodating for allergies (esp. gluten free) and the flavors/textures of her cakes are absolutely incredible! They make everything in house and the care and consideration that goes into each cake is truly off the charts. The most special thing is that for your one year anniversary they will make you a fresh anniversary cake - no more freezer burnt, year old cake to celebrate one year of marriage! So special!Sent on 12/29/2019

Chic wedding cake with a personal touch
Working with Cake Chicago for our wedding cake was truly amazing! From start to finish, Jo-Anne listened to our wants and brought them to life flawlessly. The expertise she brings to the business is perfection and she works with her couples on a level most vendors do not. She also took the time to add in a cute feature to our cake to honor our pets. Our guests continue to not only rave about how beautiful our cake was but also how it was one of the best tasting they’ve ever had. Thanks Jo-Anne!!Sent on 10/02/2019
Absolute pleasure to work with!
Mary makes a delicious cake and has a real talent for cake design.
What can I say? Mary Winslow is the bomb. I am a cake snob and I only recommend Take the Cake to my brides. SHe has been on my referral list for YEARS! those chubby wubby's are just too good! I love this business, you will NOT be disappointed if you use Mary at Take the Cake!
