love everything about this little shop, especially the cake. yum! Over the years, we have purchased several cakes and cupcakes from Let Them Eat Cake. The best cake I ever had was a "bulldozer" cake they made for my son's 2nd birthday. It was actually a 3-D bulldozer, complete with rock candy in its shovel. Before we cut into it, I remember wondering if it would taste as good as it looked. The cake was moist and delicious, and the frosting was fantastic. Recently, I ordered a dozen red velvet cupcakes for my daughter's birthday. They were delicious too--the cake was moist, and the frosting was rich and creamy. Plus, they were beautiful.
This place is fantastic! I somehow ended up buying 3 dozen cupcakes in a 3 week period with friend's birthdays so close this summer. The price is well worth it, even though it make seem steep. Remember you get what you pay for and in reality these little bits of heaven should cost way more. I generally go in and get 12 different cupcakes and a menu to identify them. Then everyone gets to pick out a different one. Plus identifying the cupcakes based on their descriptions is quite fun!
I had the Red Velvet cupcake at work. It was so good. The cupcakes were so good in fact, that my neighbor Doug, took 2 and claimed one was for his 'girl".
For me these are the cupcakes to end all cupcakes...they are the gold standard I compare all other cupcakeries to when I go out for cupcake tastings. If you're in Phoenix then you MUST try their cupcakes. Plus, the ladies are so nice; the customer service is very personalized. They just really take care of you!
We went with Let Them Eat Cake for our wedding cupcakes last August and they were everything we could ask for and then some. First, let me say that we spent a day driving around in early summer heat all over the Phoenix area to dry out cupcakes and these were by far the best we found. We set up a tasting which was a little bit of scheduling hassle but that is understandable. I will admit that the way they do their tasting is somewhat strange, with the picking three flavors and frostings and having them in one cake. It is a bit hard to really judge the flavors this way, especially if you are doing cupcakes, but I can see why it make since from their business perspective. Plus, from our initial visit to the tasting and delivery of product, our service, especially from Barbara, was top notch. We went with three different flavors, customized design and details, and everything turned out perfect. Everyone at the wedding loved the cakes, and they looked great. The prices were fair, especially considering the size and compared with other shops in the area. A lot of these reviews seem a tad harsh.
Great cupcakes, five stars for their creative designs and five stars for their super patient and understanding stuff who took the trouble to digress the various ingredients and flavors in each cupcake. I will be back again to get my next half doZen :) yum yum bring a friend to split a cupcake as they are pretty big.
Let Them Eat Cake is the best place to get a cake for any occasion. I have been an Event Planner in the valley for over 10 years and 100% of my clients choose Let Them Eat Cake once they taste the cake and see the amazing designs!!
I've been going to this place for almost a year now, and they never let me down. They provide wonderful customer service and always try to go above and beyond.
I have been watching all of the popular cake shows and didnt really realize how expensive all the cakes were (they never say prices, but thats t.v. for ya!) and at first i was a little shocked to find out the how expensive a cake could cost. The staff did a wonderful job at explaining the pricing and gave me different options to bring down the cost.
Im not really a big "cake" or "sweets" person, but that has changes! There cake is moist and the fillings add a nice contrast to the flavors.
To me, it seems like the people who are complaining about this place are the ones with the "groupons" or other coupons. The staff is extremely flexible with trying to make all there customers happy. There has been a few times where i have tried to order a cake on short notice and was a little taken back at the "rush" charge. But it is understandable because of the late notce i gave them. After being a repeat customer and seeing their amazing work, I see why they need at least a week for custom orders. It would take me atleast a month to come up with the creative stuff they do!
Let them eat cake it definitely a place i would continue to recommend to my friends. Keep up the good work!
Cupcakes to me are what cookies are to the Cookie Monster. I love them. I sit at home and dream about new cake and filling flavor combinations that I can make in my kitchen. Note - I said dream - not bake. It was this process of daydreaming that prompted me to stop in at Let Them Eat Cake.
Over the past several years I have enjoyed many cakes from Let Them Eat Cake and the cupcakes didn't disappoint. Unable to decide on one or two flavors, I purchased the baker's dozen and selected 13 incredible cupcakes to take home (Oreo, Coconut Creme, 'Lil Deb, Boston Creme, Chocolate Rampage, Cosmos, Cherry Bomb, Better Than Sex, Butter Rum, Rusty Zebra, Promised Land, Velvet Rose and the new Caramel Apple). 13 cupcakes in a household of two people will last a long tine so the most difficult decision was (and still is) which cupcake to eat first / next.
Today is one week since my purchase and we are almost half way through the cupcakes. Each cake is so large that my daughter and I split each one down the middle, each of us enjoying half (fewer calories that way, right?). To date we have enjoyed the Oreo (oh my word), the coconut creme, the 'lil deb, and the butter rum. We packaged our treasures in a couple of large Ziploc bags and much to my delight, each cupcake has remained moist in the refrigerator even one week later.
I love the presentation and the creative flavors and can't wait to take a few dozen to my college reunion next month. The cupcakes will be the hit of the weekend. These really are cupcakes to lose your head over!
We had such a great experience at Let Them Eat Cake! We ordered our wedding cake here, and it was so delicious and beautifully done. It looked just as we asked, and just like the sketch that Barbara made out. The cake was delivered on time and professionally. We also love that they include a smaller, duplicate cake on the day of your 1 year anniversary. We are really looking forward to enjoying our wedding cake again!
Barbara was really wonderful to work with! We would definitely recommended Let Them Eat Cake!
