About

Fleckenstein's Bakery is well known in the south Chicagoland Area for creating the finest wedding cakes available thanks to the hard work of our devoted team of Bob, Joan, Ray, and Ross Fleckenstein. They insist that a wedding cake is not created more than 24 hours in advance of the reception. They work long hours on the weekend to ensure the freshest cake for your wedding. Typically, while you are at your dress rehearsal, they haven't even started your cake yet. This isn't reason to fret, but to relax, knowing that we will take care of everything and have perfect timing with our delivery. The family team pays every attention to detail, which starts with the baking of the delicious cake layers. Fleckenstein's Bakery engineers and assembles those layers from the bottom up to create a cake that is structurally sound and stands the test of time (unless a tipsy guest falls into the table!). They will beautifully ice your cake to a smooth as glass finish. Finally, your cake is decorated with the utmost precision and patience. After the cake is completed at the bakery, your cake is carefully driven to the hall and set up by Ray or Ross. Bob, Joan, Ray, and Ross feel that creating your wedding cake is the most important job they do. It is because they feel this way that they leave nothing to chance and personally do all the work on your cake. After all, their reputation is at stake.

    Turned my Pinterest pic into real life

    So happy they were willing to make a cake out of their norm. They took my picture and created my dream cake. Allll I heard about from my wedding is how amazing the cake was... and it was!

    Fleckenstein’s is amazing

    We had pie instead of wedding cake. Fleckenstein’s made us feel great about making that decision. All they needed was to know what kind and how many pies a couple of days before the event. We continued get compliments on 1. The decision to have pies and 2. How delicious they were. I refuse to get pie from any other place now that I’ve been so spoiled by Fleckenstein’s.
