I ordered a chocolate cake from Grandin Bakery for a retirement event at work. It was delicious!!! They decorated it perfectly and it was so much better than the over iced, overly sweet, no substance cakes you get at many of the super markets.
After much searching we ordered our wedding cake and cupcakes at Grandin Bakery. Prices were great, service and the quality exceptional! We ordered 200 chocolate cupcakes with butter creme icing - so good that we got so many people at our wedding asking where we got them. Our 8" cake for the top of the cupcake tower was beautiful. We got the cake layers filled with nutella (hazelnut chocolate spread), sounds strange but it was incredible!
I had taken in a cake to be decorated at Grandin Bakery for my parent's 50 anniversary. We are english so it was a fruit cake. I had ordered marzipan and rolled fondant icing with decorations in royal icing (although I will admit I didn't specify royal icing, but I assumed that no one would use buttercream with fruit cake). The cake I got was a decorated in thin buttercream with hardly a resemblance to the picture I had taken in. My mother was upset when she saw it and I called to have it fixed. Martin the manager (owner?) told me to bring it back and they would fix it. They replaced the icing with royal icing but mixed the icing too thin and by the time it had hardened there was absolutely no definition in the decorating at all. It is a mess. The anniversary is tomorrow, it is 5 am and I haven't slept all night. I am so ashamed to put this mess out tomorrow. I know my mum has been crying over it. I know the decorator was furious at having to redo the cake, she as much as said so when we took it back, but what she did to it was just cruel! I had my wedding cake decorated there 7 years ago and it was lovely so I am the one that suggested on getting the cake done at Grandin. Please, please think twice or three times before you take your cake here. Please don't get your cake here. It is such a big part of any celebration, I would hate to think someone else is up all night in tears because they weren't warned that there is no longer a decent cake decorator at Grandin bakery!!
My sister works at the Grandin Bakery and she is absolutely fantastic. Their cookies and doughnut are spectacular. YAY fo bakeries!
I have been going to the Grandin Bakery for probably 20 years, everything is wonderful, their donuts are the best i have ever had, their bread is wonderful and freezes fantastic, their pizza dough that you buy frozen is amazing...my husband thinks i make it fresh hahaha. We bought our wedding cake there, and we still go every wednesday and saturday. Now that i have kids they know as soon as we turn the corner we are going to the bakery for cinnamon buns or something else delicious. If you havent tried it you dont know what you are missing. Cobbs is nothing compared to this, you go for the great product and also get great people which is an exceptional treat nowadays.
Have you seen their monthly feature cupcakes. Sooooooo Cute!
We hope you'll come by to see the beautiful cakes that our new decorator makes. She is very good at listening and creates some pretty stunning cakes.
