Biggest Disappointment

Cakes By Linda was the biggest disappointment of my whole wedding. My wedding was supposed to be absolutely perfect (or as perfect as anyone can hope for). At the cake tasting, I chose orange champagne with raspberry filling for my cake, then, it tasted amazing… but it did NOT taste like that on my special day. My husband is not a big cake person, but he too was excited for the cake on our wedding day. Needless to say, he, among all people, was the most upset about the taste and texture of our wedding cake. It tasted like lemon cake with strawberry filling which is NOT what my husband and I wanted.

During the cake cutting ceremony, I literally had to use my other hand and push down with my whole body to cut the cake, and then had difficulty trying to get a piece on my fork to feed my husband. It just crumbled at every attempt.

After the cake was served to all my guest and as I looked around the room to see if any one was enjoying the cake, I saw that my guest took a bite or two and that was it…large pieces left on their plates, even the kids, whom were so excited about desert the whole reception, did not eat half of their piece.

Two days later I contacted Linda to let her know my disappointment and her reply was "I spoke to the server at the venue and he said the cake was “fine, like all of your cakes”". I was shocked when she mentioned this, being that a server at the venue would not know my disappointment in the cake due to the fact they did not taste the cake and did not even ask how the cake was. She felt that this reason was valid enough that she did not want to do anything about my dissatisfaction with her product.
As a working woman, and having worked in the customer service business for over 5 years, her professionalism was horrible, her personality was sour, and her product was a disappointment.

I asked a few friends and family what they thought of the cake and these were the responses;

“She should not be recommended if she can’t deliver a product that was promised.”

“Very disappointing cake considering all the hype, and how expensive it is.”

“Been to plenty of weddings and seen plenty of cakes but that cake was the WORST cake I’ve seen and tasted….”

“I can speak for myself, and all others seated at my table, that the cake was aesthetically pleasing, but certainly less than appetizing. It was even more of a disappointment to hear later that the cake was not at all what was ordered.”

“The cake at the wedding did taste as though it had been frozen, it was not in least bit moist and it certainly did not taste fresh nor, in fact like orange champagne. In my opinion it was of the wrong texture and tasted disgusting.”

“It was dry and it didn’t taste like a good cake should taste.”

“The cake was definitely dry and crumbly.”

Take warning if anyone still wishes to work with her. This is not the first time she has done this…. a client of my husband mentioned after the wedding, that she had bought a cake from Linda and was in a similar situation.

Cakes by Linda, to sum it all up, was not worth the money, time, and disappointment.
