Best Bakery in PA! (:. I ordered a cake there. I will go there as much as possible after that experience. The people are so nice, the place is clean, and the boss Denise is hilarious and kind.
Best cakes on the Mainline.
After ordering at least 10 cakes from Clays, I have to wonder if the negative reviewers are from competing bakeries. Everyone on the mainline knows Clays is The Cake Place. Visit Clays just before any holiday and you'll see their shelves full of pre-ordered beautiful cakes. Their cake designers truly are artists. I've only ever seen buttercream icing on their cakes. They don't cheap out and use fondant. If you want sharply sculptured corners, go somewhere that sells fondant cakes. Clays' designers sculpt beautiful images out of buttercream.
The cakes are delicious. They do not taste old or frozen. The cake is moist, both the butterpound and the regular. And, their colored icing doesn't have that weird metallic taste found in a lot of grocery store brands. The only not-stellar cake I've had from them was a chocolate chip pound cake, it was a little dry.
Try to pick up on a Friday since they get PACKED on Saturdays. And, they only take cash or checks.
I want to add, my DH wouldn't care one way or another what color my BD cake was, LOL and I wouldn't order my own baby shower cake, so read my review with those facts in mind. And I happen to find the baby shower cake pics pretty...some people are impossible to please and I thank my lucky stars I don't live with them.
Anything they can do, you can do better!. Although the pics are great, the real cakes never live up to what you see in their look books. Cakes are always hard and dry (old? stale? frozen and thawed?), and the frosting colors are often just plain scary. Rather than spending a fortune for an ok (at best) cake, watch a few episodes of Ace of Cakes, Cupcake Wars, and Food Network Challenge, then make your own cake.
Don't go here !!.
I ordered a cake for my wife's birthday and when I went to pick it up, it was the wrong design & color. When I told the girl it wasn't the correct cake, she said it was what I ordered. I told her it wasn't. She said "what do you want to do"? Being that my wife's party was in a few hours I asked if I was stuck with it? She just walked away??? Another girl rang me up for full price? The owners need to ensure their customers are happy and not let teenage girls run their shop. The cake was the ugliest cake I had even seen and it wasn't even that good. If I could have given no stars, I would have
I wanted to add the following comments for dweedledee. Apparently she is one of those annoying people who feels feels the need to comment on everything even if it doesn't have to do with her. She needs to realize that while she is entitled to her opinion, so are we.
First off, my wife did not care about the design of the cake, I did. You see I actually care about my wife and wanted everything perfect for her birthday. The fact that your DH (d-dumb) would just settle shows it is not only in cake, but apparently in marriage as well. As you stated in your review thank god you don't live with the rest of us and believe me the feeling is mutuaI.
If my review helps someone, great.
If it doesn't and you have a great experience there, great.
It really makes no difference to me. Again, I commented on MY experience. You should try that. Oh and as you stated LOL :)
HORRIBLE SERVICE & HORRIBLE CAKE. I had Clay's bakery make my Baby Shower cake, mind you this is my first child and first baby shower ever so I had high expectations. I asked for a 3 tiered cake w/ lavender polka dots and baby boots on the top along with baby pins. The caked looked HORRIBLE. The polka dots where BLUE and you could see the white icing through them, the words where smudged and the pins where placed randomly on the cake not even symmetrical. My caked was picked up the day before which was a Saturday and I wasn' t able to see it until AFTER they had closed. I woke up at 7am the day of my baby shower to call and ask for them to help me out because I was VERY DISAPPOINTED. They told me they couldn't do anything for me because all their decorators had left for Florida so I had to basically suck it up. Then they told me that they would have someone call me to discuss the cake problems, it's Friday and I have yet to get a call from them. The cake looked horrible and for the amount of money paid for it I'm shocked I haven't even received a courtesy call. I would not recommend anyone to get a cake from them, the pictures portrayed on there website and facebook page are not at all accurate of what you will received. And the only reason they have 1 star from me is because a rating is required or else they would get NONE.
BEST BAKERY ON THE MAINLINE. I've been going to clays bakery for over 10 years and I think they've only improved. I recently had a birthday and ordered a cake from clays. It was probably the best tasting cake I've ever had. The red velvet cupcakes are TO DIE FOR! If your looking for a consistently great bakery, without hesitation clays is the best bakery around!!!
My Favorite Bakery. I LOVE CLAY'S BAKERY. I have never written a review for any product or service in my life, but when I read negative reviews about Clay's it actually made me a little sad. You can order ahead and get the most amazing looking and tasting cake ever, but that's not the greatest thing. You can walk in there any day and right inside the front door is refrigerator case with revolving shelves showcasing beautiful custom cakes for sale. No one need be aware that you picked up their cake at the last minute, because the perfect one is in there waiting and they personalize it for you right away. I set up a tasting for my wedding cake there. A young girl took my appointment and accidentally overlooked that I was out of the delivery area. Actually, a whole state away, my reception was in Delaware. When I went in for the meeting, the lady that was helping us noticed the address. She told me that they don't travel on major highways to deliver the cake but that they would never turn me away after I already came in for the appointment and that they would work it out. My wedding cake was awesome, AND it was chocolate chip pound cake. Every time I go there, which is every family or work occasion, they are busy, and friendly. I wish everyone had the same luck as I have had with them; 100% satisfaction. By the way I am not easy to please, I feel like customer service is going down the tubes most places. While I do believe everyone's experiences, I'm choosing to disregard tesswilk's review. It's the poor spelling and the horrible grammar, I don't think her head was on straight or that it was well thought out. I hope you find this helpful
Worst bakery in the area!!!!!!.
I heard that this Clay bakery are the best in the area. I was so exided to get cake from them for my family celebration.
I was suprised and disapointed what i get! It was the worst cake I ever taste! I will never recomended this bakery to anyone, and ofcourse never go there again!
Don't order the chocolate chip cake!!!. We always buy our daughter's birthday cakes from Clay's. It is quite a hike for us to get there, but no one can beat them on the decorating aspect of the cake. I have heard so many complaints about the chocolate chip cake from online reviews and my neighbor who got one. It always seems to turn out dry. I just wanted to say that if it was dry the first time you got it, then don't get it again! Let's all just steer clear of the chocolate chip cake. OK? The chocolate and white cakes have always been good for us and the cakes are beautiful.
Awesome cake all of the time!!!. I have gotten cakes here for years and it has always been awesome! I can't understand any problems that anyone has had. I have gotten countless cakes and would suggest anyone with problems to try them again!! There staff has always been so nice and extremely helpful. Always ready and willing to lend a hand when I need help to the car with my newborn.
