We set up a wedding cake tasting and consultation with Tipsycake while in our wedding search. When we arrived, all of the lights were off and the doors were locked. I called the store and got no answer. I left a voicemail that we were waiting but would have to leave, and that I was very upset since I had taken a day off of work for the tasting. Eventually, someone called me back and asked when I would be available to come back. I told her 2:30 and she said that she would come back at 3. I said no, I have to be out of the area before then. When I did go back, the lights were still all out and a girl, still wearing her jacket, handed me 6 frozen cupcakes. She listed the flavors and listed one as "flavor of the day." I asked what the flavor of the day was, she didn't know, and she told me that the name of the cake was just "flavor of the day." When we left, we saw her leaving as well. I would never trust them to do our wedding cake - I wouldn't even know that it would be there on time.

Just recently got a cake for my father-in-law's birthday and it turned out incredible. I gave a loose idea of what we wanted in order to leave some creative room and she ran with it very well. Most of the negative reviews seem like they are from people who don't understand how this business works. Naomi communicated with me through email, responded very quickly, and did an amazing job on a short amount of time.

I have known Naomi for a few years and have ordered several cakes & treats from her in the past. Her cakes are creative and delicious and I've never been disappointed. I work in the wedding industry and I have seen her wedding cakes and groom cakes displayed at bridal events and they are works of art. This review, however, is for Tipsycake's Event Space in Bucktown. All I can say is WOW! My sister is getting married this year and the bridal party struggled with a place to host a shower. We live in Chicago and most of us don't have condos or apartments large enough. We looked at some restaurants and private spaces but they seemed stuffy, formal, and expensive. Then I realized I had seen some wedding and baby showers featured on Tipyscake's Facebook Page! I reached out to Naomi and she was incredibly helpful in helping us figure out the details and secure a date. During the planning process Naomi and her team were able to answer all my questions and provide suggestions and help guide us. We decided to do a tea service for our guests (which they offer daily, and it's BYOB!). They came up with the idea of coordinating the cakepops and sweets to match the shower colors. They suggested we bring an ipod loaded with a playlist for music. They thought of everything I was too busy to think of! The day of the shower the staff at Tipsycake was amazing! Very attentive and helpful. They checked with us to see when they should pass out the scones, start serving, etc. Helped us move the party along and start opening gifts, cut the cake, etc. I was overwhelmed as the "host" and appreciated their suggestions and for helping me keep the shower moving. It's obvious they are very experienced in hosting showers and parties and know their stuff!! We were allowed to arrive a little bit early to decorate and their staff also offered to help us with any setup we were doing. This was above and beyond. All of our friends and family could not stop talking about the food. The tea sandwiches, bruschetta, and scones were all a huge hit! The tea selection was impressive. The cake pops were amazing and the cake - vanilla passionfruit - was my favorite to date!! Everyone was blown away by the space, the staff, the service, the food. We could not have asked for a better shower location in the city. It felt intimate and personal. If you are planning a wedding or baby shower, a birthday, a girl's outing - I would highly recommend a private party at Tipsycake. I cannot wait to go back for afternoon tea service soon. I will probably be taking my mother in law when she visits. Thank you again to Naomi and the Tipsycake staff for an amazing event!

#30daychallenge Again, let me reveal in the name of full disclosure that Tipsycake is my business neighbor in Bucktown. This is awesome on many levels, the most obvious of which is that I can walk to the bakery and nab any number of decadent, caloric, and sinful goodies with minimum effort and maximum pleasure. Their red velvet cupcakes are a journey into the plush confines of baked goods heaven, and their brownies dance on the tongue like ballet dancers pirouetting through chocolate. But it is their caramel slice that truly makes life worth living...the thick, dense, rich, symbiosis of chocolate ganache and gooey caramel is underscored by a crumbled coconut crust that further sends this treat into the sensual stratosphere. Close your eyes and enjoy the ride. Reasonable prices, a lovely storefront cafe, and the professional staff are also appreciated.

I purchased a cake over the phone... I told whoever the girl on the phone was that I needed it for the weekend which was 3 days away. She told me my total and that was it. Great! I go in 3 days later to pick up my cake and when I go in to sign my receipt I see she has charged me double the cake price into a "rush fee" ... so I inquire about this rush fee that was never discussed over the phone. The lady apologized and told me the other girl probably didn't know about it. Uuuhhmmm I recognized her voice it was the same lady!!! I needed the cake so I wasn't going to fight it... 3 hours later the cake ended in the garbage as it was the worst cake my friends and I had. I recommend Jewel cake over this.

I went there hoping to buy some cake or cup cakes for a friend's birthday. They only had 3 cupcakes. That's it. No other cakes at all. At that point I thought it was a front for something illegal.

the best cakes (any design you want OMG!) and the prices are great. But best of all, the service is impeccable and stellar!

I was looking at their website and decided to call and ask a few questions before placing my order. When I called the woman who answered seemed to be rushing, and while I was asking questions she had this attitude as if she didnt have time to answer me! I didn't even have a chance to ask about my options before she snapped and asked if I had acess to their site. DUH I was clearly on the site but somethings are not answered!! I don't think that rushing a potential customer will ensure business. Customer service speaks volumes and this place is severly lacking.
