Their cakes looks like a 5 year old decorated them. They lean, are smudged, have bad handwriting, and overall lack of design. Their cupcakes taste like a hot mess. Dry, Crumbly, Plastic tasting frosting. It's disgusting. Save your money and go elsewhere!! So Gross!

My co-worker and I were just looking at their website yesterday.. one hot mess... I agree about the quality of their cake as well. Sadly, Walmart is so much better...

I was considering them for my wedding cake and I looked at their facebook pics. Dang!! Some of the pics they posted, I don't know why they would put them on there. The quality is terrible!!! I don't know how they taste but they look really bad! Who does a good job for wedding cakes in Huntington?
been there

I have gone several times for the last two years. I have never had one thing that tasted bad or not been great quality. Tina always strives to give the best service and product. The only complaints I have heard from are from her competitors. She made 5 cakes for my wedding and more birthday cakes, cupcakes and other things for me, ALL of which have been excellent. Just like I have always heard, WHEN THEY TRASH TALK YOU, THEY ARE SCARED OF YOU!!!

The fact that you automatically think that anyone that complains is a competitor shows that you are in fact a part of Tina's business. The cakes look like shit. I've seen good decorated cakes and hers are not it. People who think her cakes look good are people who have not been exposed to quality cakes. Her cakes taste horrible and the icing is disgusting. I am not a competitor. I am simply a cake enthusiast that lost her enthusiasm when I bought a cake from her store.

I to viewed their website, cakes were not professional looking, very sloppy decorating, not trying to bash their business, but I personally would not purchase a cake from there, did have some of their red velvet cupcakes.....not very good, as a matter of fact they got thrown out because of taste, maybe someone needs to go back to pastry school !

Ok so I just visited the fb page to check out the pics I thought u all might be over reacting. I apologize. My 6 yr old and I have created better figures out of play-doh. The spongebob cake! Roflmao! What a mess. And the monkey head cake what a disaster! Ohohoh and the gun cake! That was pitiful looked like a 4 year old wrote on it. Its cracking me up the piping is even lopsided and sloppy. I haven't checked out the wedding cakes yet bet they are a real hot mess. I would be ashamed to sell something like that let alone taje a pic of it and claim it. That spongebob cake takes the prize can't stop lol at it but I would have been seriously upset if it were mine. Did u see that terrible woody and bullseye? Lmao. these cakes are probably outrageously priced too. Never been there. And true walmart is better.

I saw this post before ordering my sons birthday cake but decided to give this place a try anyway, MISTAKE!!!!! He loves the beach so they said they could do a beach scene with a shark on top. Well I got the cake the shark looked more like a blob with eyes and they dumped a pile of brown sugar on half of the cake to make it look like sand, the writing was horrible. I will never order a cake from there again!

my mom got me a cake from there for my birthday, it was supposed to be cheetah print with fondant tiger lillys on it, instead I got a pale pinkish tan fondant icing with black food coloring splotches and those ugly tiny lilly looking things from Krogers flower department shoved in the middle of my cake and in the corners. my mom was pissed and I was very dissapointed.

I just looked at your cake and all I can say is WOWWW!!! I make cakes as well, and there is no way I would send out anything looking like those. Not professional at all.

I agree with the cakes looking aweful. Poor quality !! Also they aren't forth coming with how much the cake costs till you go to pick it up then theres an extra charge !!

That's horrible! I make sure my customer's know exactly how much their cake will be and if they aren't satisfied, then I fix it.

i think it's funny that this is even up here. Anyone with a brain can tell it's the same person posting most of the negative comments....they have the same punctuation characteristics, same phrases used, same (horrible) grammar.....wow. I have personally been in their bakery, and it's great. Everything I've tried from there has been delicious. They are great people and are nice to my little girl. There isn't anything wrong with their cakes. You know what? If you think their cakes are decorated ugly, and their products taste like crap, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE! Or better yet, get off your butt and make your own, since you're apparently an expert on cake decorating and baking.

Thank you for saying that!! I have been a faithful customer for over two years. I have sent several friends and clients there. All of us love the products and service. I also agree, if you think you can get better elsewhere, go for it!!
