    Arrived perfectly

    This shadow cake is outstanding. I had another cake also which was ordered locally as I wasn't sure how the quality or delivery of a mail order cake would be turn out to be. I must say I was skeptical for no reason at all. My guests finished off the cake I had delivered long before other was finished. Both were white cake with chocolate icing which says a lot to me.

    Ordered a birthday cake for my husband and requested an additional inscription and it was done like I requested. The ordering was really easy and the cake was delivered right on time. Wasn't a fan of the taste of the cake though but I'm happy my husband go the cake at the right time!

    Thank you

    This was my dad's last birthday--he has terminal cancer. I wanted to make this birthday extra special even though I couldn't be there, so I sent him a Chocolate Shadow Cake. He loved getting a cake in the mail. Everyone was delighted with the cake and amazed it arrived in perfect condition. I don't know how you do it, but thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping to make his birthday very special. Patricia Betz

    Tasted Fantastic

    The cakes looked fantastic. I loved that I got a discount. I was told the cake arrived in perfect condition and tasted fantastic. In fact, one of the people who got to eat the cake learned he lives close to the bakery. He loved the cake so much, he wants to stop by.

    My mother loved her birthday cake! Your website was easy to navigate and ordering was easy. Thanks for shipping as promised.

    Would order again soon

    My son's "30" birthday was in March and he lives a long way from home, so I could not let his birthday go by without a birthday cake. He thought it was a wonderful idea and a great tasting cake. Would order again. Thanks

    Thank You

    Chef Steve I must tell you that the birthday cake was out of this world! I come from MA., Worcester to be precise and you took me back to the days of my child-hood with that cake! My Mother was the one I ordered the cake for and she shared a slice and that was all I got.. so that should give you a clue.. ! Thank you for the prompt service and the delicious cake. God Bless, Merry Christmas and please have a happy New Year to you and yours, Mrs. Alecia Darin

    Absolutely Perfect

    I sent the the Shadow Birthday Cake to my daughter at college in Lynchburg, Virginia for her 21st birthday. It arrived on time and absolutely perfect. She said it was the most delicious birthday cake that she ever had. Thanks for helping to make her day extra special. By the way, I just finished ordering another cake from you.

    Unfortunately, the cake did not arrive for my sister's 50th birthday. However, the representative I spoke with by phone was very pleasant, refunded my delivery fee, apologized and let me know that the cake would be replaced if there was any problem at all. Because I received good customer service, quick, complete and without any argument, I will definitely use this service again and recommend it as well.

    Five shiny stars

    Five stars for!! I sent a shadow cake plus a party pack to someone in Maine who was celebrating her 40th birthday. Placed the order the day before her birthday. It arrived beautifully packaged, right on time - and from what I heard, it was delicious! I've been recommending to all of my friends, and I will not hesitate to use this service again for other special occasions.

    I always bake, but....

    I purchased the Shadow Cake for my daughter's 21st birthday. She is in college and I could not be with her. She said the cake was so delicious!!!! I always bake her cakes for her but, she said this was a fantastic idea and the cake was perfect!!!! I will definitely use your service again.

    Lucky daughter

    My daughter left for her first year of college, and had her 18th birthday a few days after. Luckily, I found the Complete Party Kit on the web. I was worried that either the cake or the service would be less than I expected, but my experience with this first order was exceptional. The delivery was a little tricky because the college had changed the location of mail delivery, but the cake arrived on time, as promised. My daughter and her new dorm mates loved the cake, and I appreciated the excellent service. My expectations were exceeded; I would not hesitate to order again, or to recommend this company to friends. Thank you again!

    Brother loves this

    "Although my brother is older being away from home on your birthday is never fun. Thanks for your help, everything was perfect! When the cake arrived the hotel he is staying at put balloons in his room and the cake in the frig. He was so excited he had to call me right away, it was almost like when we were kids.
    Thanks again!"

    "Dear Chef Steve,

    I will highly recommend your company. I ordered the Chocolate birthday kit at the very last minute for delivery in Alaska and as promised, it was delivered the very next day. A wonderfull product and wonderfull service!"
    Review by Kathleen • (Posted on 8/5/2016)


    My niece was delighted with the cake! It was the fact that the whole serving set came with it that really wowed them, though! I had sent this cake to my sister about a month ago and knew it was a huge success at her house, where they enjoyed it with champagne in the afternoon, before dinner!

    "The chocolate cake we ordered to be delivered across the country in the hot summer heat was a great success! We were pleased that we could
    track it online on the FedEx web site. The chocolate cake itself was absolutely delicious and the party kit was a big hit!
    Thanks for making our son's birthday very special!"

    "Chef Steve,

    My son Jeff was very surprised with the cake. He and his roommates all said the cake was delicious. The cake arrived on time and was fun to open with the party plates & napkins included. Since we were unable to be with him to celebrate his birthday, this was a nice way to make it a special day.

    Thank you for taking the time with me on the phone to answer my questions. We've bookmarked your site for his birthday next year! Thank you."
    Review by Patt • (Posted on 8/5/2016)

    Found you

    I was unable to be with my Mom on her 75th birthday, and knew she deserved a special cake. I searched on line and found YOU :) I ordered, pretty last minute, and waited. When I called her on her birthday, she was absolutely delighted!! She loved the beautiful cake and was very impressed that it was delivered right to her door, on her special day. Thank you so much for the important part you played in her birthday celebration. P.S. since that time, she sent me a picture with the cake, and a note telling me she froze part of it to share with me next time I am there, so I can see / taste it for myself.

    Great Idea

    "..first time I ever got a birthday cake in the mail, delivered to my house. What a great idea!
    The cake was delicious and very fresh. I will keep your website as a bookmark for future purchases. I want to thank my daughter and her family for sending it to me."

    Very Happy

    "I sent the Shadow Birthday Cake to my daughter in Tallahassee. This was the first year she has not been with the family for her birthday. Needless to say she was extremely happy when she received her cake and party pack from Mom and Dad. Thank you.

    Good Work

    I have been using the services for quite a long time, every time I placed the order it was 100% satisfying, on time, good quality and good presentation especially the tracking system. The best portal to send cakes to loved ones when you are away from the country. Good work Steve -Lakshmi

    Thank you again

    "I would like to thank you for your terrific service! This was my son's
    first year away at university. Since I was unable to make the cake for his birthday this year, we ordered the shadow truffle cake from La Patisserie. He was so pleased with it - and he said it even had the roses like I used to make. He said it arrived in perfect condition. So thank you again!"

    Delivery was not good

    The cake was suppose to be delivered on Friday but was not delivered until Monday. We paid extra for the delivery. We were not notified about the delay and an email I sent to report the problem was not answered.

    This was a sweet surprise for the recipient; She told me it made her Birthday so special (and delicious!).
