The cupcakes were rather small and simple. You might make these same cupcakes for your childs birthday party. They were not very impressive and certainly not worth the groupon price. We expected something that would be more similar to what you would get from Hello Cupcake. Not so.

We ordered a 10" buttercream cake, and while the decoration of the cake was quite pretty, there was literally the thinnest coat of frosting on the top of the cake we have ever seen. In fact, it actually appeared to be the crumb coat that you would apply before smoothing the outer layer of frosting onto the cake, as there were cake crumbs in the very sheer layer on the top. The filling between the layers was sparse as well, which was unfortunate because the gateau itself was quite dry. Sadly, it was the driest cake with the most paltry amount of frosting we have seen in this price range. Definitely not worth what we paid for the Groupon.

The vanilla cake pop with white frosting tasted the freshest. But they all left an oily film in the mouth. I was not impressed with how they looked. They were all different sizes and looked amatuerly frosted. Had I ordered them for a special occasion, I would have been embarrassed to serve them. Sorry. :( Go get one from Starbucks. That was what my expectations were based on. At least in size/shape.

The cake pops were disappointing. The choices were chocolate, white, and red velvet. I purchased a mixture. For the price they should have been spectacular. I bake better cakes myself!

We ordered cake pops. The appearance and flavor were wonderful! I'd highly recommend Amazing Kakes!

From Our Editors

Amazing Kakes sugar artists Yvette Humbert and Kim Sanchez, whose creations have been featured on the Food Network and in The Knot’s Best of Weddings 2010, apply their artistry to made-to-order wedding cakes, cupcakes, and cake pops. The flavorings and fondant in their cakes hail from Switzerland, imparting a distinct European note to flavors that range in complexity from red velvet to champagne bellini. The duo's commitment to detail extends to its firm stance on only designing wedding cakes in-person, though the two have flown as far as San Francisco and the moon to construct and attend to celebratory pastries.

Humbert and her fleet of instructors share their expertise in cake-making classes, teaching students to mimic their magic in a roomy, sunlit classroom. In general classes, including topics such as how to make fondant or gum-paste flowers, bakers add new techniques to their repertoires, and during more specific classes, they learn to build cakes that resemble anything from the University of Texas at Austin tower to a high-heeled shoe. All materials are generally provided, allowing students to observe firsthand Amazing Kakes’ efforts to use exclusively sustainable and nontoxic products.
