Dear Nina & Mario

Recently, my partner and I of 25 yrs were married in Tampa, and we ordered our wedding cake from Cakes Plus. I am writing to let you know how absolutely beautiful and delicious the cake was! Everyone told me the sign of a delicious cake is when none is left- and NONE is left! Our guests raved at the presentation and flavor. The pound cake was an excellent choice!

Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU for making our special day so memorable.

Nina!!!! THE MOST AMAZING, MOST DELICIOUS CAKE EVER! Paulina’s 5th birthday was a hit and everyone in the building @JumpZone was taking pictures, asking for your info. ~it was beyond perfection! Thank you so much!I am coming in Fri. morning to pick up a ready made cake from your frig. or the small ones. Have 2 more cake orders to share with you all.
Thank you so much and see you soon!
If you are surfing the web for that “perfect cake” to order for your special occasion and stumbled on this website…look no further than Cakes Plus.It was recently my father’s birthday and I wanted to get him a vintage car cake. After doing a little searching of my own I called Cakes Plus and spoke with Mario. After he asked for photos of what I had in mind, I proceeded to e-mail him a picture of an old, 1957, two-toned Buick and hoped for the best.

I just thought I would take a minute and thank you for such a great cake! I thought Lauren was going to loose her mind when she saw it. The kids loved the cookies and cream and the Amaretto was a total hit! It was absolutely delicious! Thank you so very much! The day was so fun and I look forward to having you do cakes in the future! Cheers!

Hey Guys

Thank you soooooo much for the Mario Bros Cake. Everybody loved it. Your cupcakes were the best I’ve ever tasted in my entire life and the kids were, OMG, all over the place with the cake decoration. You did a super duper job. I am very pleased with the outcome, specially with my “last-minute” request. Thank you so much.—————————————————————-

I just wanted to thank Chef Mario and the wonderful staff for making my daughter’s birthday extra special with a beautiful Smurf Cake last weekend. I walked out of the store after we met feeling completely confident that you were going to make the cake all I wanted. It attracted people outside of my party asking permission to take a picture of it. Great Job guys! See you in March I have another one coming.

Hi all,

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did for my daughter’s baby shower cake this past Sunday. I thought that your decorations for the cake were superior to the one in the photograph that I sent you – it was remarkable what you did with just that one photograph!Everyone at the shower was amazed. It was delicious too! That is sometimes not the case with cakes like that.

I only wished I lived in Tampa and not in Fort Myers so that I could use your bakery more often (better for my waistline, though).

Thanks again!

I went to pick the cake up three days later and there it was…in its full glory, exactly like the picture. I could not believe my eyes. It was perfect on the outside and delicious on the inside.

This cake was not just a cake but a magnificent work of art.

I will never forget the look on my family’s faces when they saw it…absolutely priceless.
I am truly grateful for Cakes Plus’ professionalism, kindness and artistry.

Trust me, if you order your cake from Cakes Plus you will be too.

We wanted to write and tell you how wonderful the wedding and grooms cakes were!! Your truly are an artist!
The cakes were fresh, and the decorating was beautiful. We had so many compliments at how lovely they were and the flavor and freshness was like nothing they have ever tasted.
We were so amazed at the Florida Gator on top of the grooms cake…it was so unexpected and FANTASTIC!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day truly special, beautiful, and one we’ll never forget. We will recommend you to everyone we know!”

“Nina, Mario and Staff,

I cannot completely express how pleased I was with the cake for my husband’s 30th birthday party.

Needless to say my husband was equally pleased.

Not only did our guests rand and rave about how realistic it looked, several people put their fingers in it thinking that it was a real trunk suitcase. Everyone asked where we had it made.

You exceeded my expectations!”

Warmest regards,

Marina D.
“Dear Nina,

Thank you for a truly wonderful dessert for the Guild last week. We were thrilled with the presentation and the taste! Fantastic! And thank you for sharing your ways of making this terrific cake.

Take Care and we hope to see you both next months.”

“Dear Ma’am,

On behalf of the staff, clients and Women’s Auxiliary of The Salvation Army of Hillsborough County, I’d like to express our sincere appreciation for your generous donation of the Freshly Baked “Special Pound Cake” by Cakes Plus.

Your generosity is at work in the lives of hungry children and homeless families. Each day we see the hope in the eyes of those we serve when they receive a hot meal..safe shelter…or care in times of emergency or disaster. It is because of you that we are able to provide hope to hundreds of people in need each day.

I know the people you’ve helped would personally thank you if given the chance. I hope you will accept my gratitude on their behalf. We are grateful for your support and appreciate your trust in the Salvation Army to serve those in need without discrimination. “

Thank you for such a beautiful cake! Everyone at the baby shower was impressed, plus your “special recipe” was a HUGE hit.

And although it was a rush order, you were able to accommodate us happily.

I will definitely use your company again and will tell my friends and family about your friendly and quick service.

Words cannot express how impressed I was with your and your team’s work on our bride and groom cake! Both were AMAZING! Scott loved his groom cake surprise…the stadium was very accurate nellie (dog) turned out perfect! Even all of Scott’s groomsmen couldn’t get over how accurate the football stadium was (and they are all bama grads)!! The brides was breathtaking and the color of the sugar flowers were perfect!

I’m writing this email during my honeymoon because I just couldn’t wait any longer to thank you!! Thank you! Thank you! It was a joy to work you and your team and thank you for all the hard work!
