HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!! – When you go onto their website it states that they have wedding cake tasting every Saturday and lists the hours. Well I called prior to and was told that the bakery was going to close on 7/3/10 @ 2 p.m. and that I did not need to schedule an appointment for a wedding cake tasting. Upon arrival (40 minute ride from Acworth) I was informed that they did not have the samples and that they would be on vacation next week and to "come back the week after". Talking about color me "STUPID", I DON'T THINK SO, I WILL TELL EVERYBODY THAT I KNOW DO NOT EVER GO TO THIS HORRIBLE PLACE!
Rhodes is great, but... – I went to Rhodes Bakery for my last birthday cake. The store was clean and the staff were very friendly, fast, and accommodating; they had no problem making the cake for Saturday when I ordered it on Thursday (granted, it was a rather simple sheet cake.) I was extremely pleased with the experience and would give the bakery a higher rating if it weren't for the fact that the actual cake was somewhat bland and the icing was far too sweet. It may have just been the kind that I ordered, but I felt like I basically just paid for the decoration because I could have made the exact same thing from a box.
Dissapointed customer – I went to this bakery becasue the 1st rater sounded so impressed. The caramel cake (that I drove 30 minutes for) was less than mediocre. The double layer cake was dry and uneven. I was completely disappointed in my purchase and they don't even take orders. I would never go back.
Best Caramel Cake in Atlanta – My family has been going to Rhodes since I was a kid. This place is amazing! You get a warm fuzzy feeling just walking in the place and the smell of freshly made icing is to die for. They make the best Caramel cake I have ever tasted- we get it every year for my mother and sister's birthdays. They make delicious petit-fours, cookies, and cheese straws as well. It has been family owned and operated since 1930 and after going there once, you will understand why they have survived all these years. I highly recommend you try this place. I am a lifetime customer.
