Bake Me A Wish: Gourmet Cakes Delivered To Your Door
Dec 3, 2007
Can you resist the smooth and creamy flavor of a cheesecake? How about something with the name "Chocolate Mousse Torte"? Even though I'm not supposed to eat them, I do. I know some day it will all catch up with me but for the time being, it's too wickedly sinful to not indulge in something that is so devastatingly delicious. Bake Me A Wish specializes in gourmet cakes that they will ship pretty much anywhere in the United States. I know what you are thinking, "Damn, that's gotta be expensive"; actually, when you compare it to what you would be paying for a cake of this quality in an upscale bakery, the prices arent that bad.
Kelly's Cake Take
The cakes are almost all seven inches in size and are shipping using some of the best packing trips I have ever seem. I ordered one of these for a friend that was feeling a little blue. She called me the day it arrived but I couldn't understand a word she was saying. She was too bust shoveling pieces of cake in her mouth to get a word out clearly. For her I picked the Caramel Apple Crumb Cake that she topped off with French Vanilla ice cream. Her exact words were: "If they made these cakes locally, I would never cry over a man again". I ordered that cake late Tuesday afternoon and it was at her doorstep Thursday. It might not have cured her blues completely but she did strike up a nice little relationship with the Federal Express driver that did her delivery.
Tommy's Cake Take
Tommy is a cheesecake fiend; I can't buy a cheesecake and try to sneak it in the house or he will smell it and pester me until he finds it. When he was on a long haul several months ago and was stuck in Michigan for three days waiting for his return load to arrive I wanted to surprise him so I sent him a cheesecake; that might not sound all that weird but he was staying at a motel in the middle of nowhere and I was worried that the cheesecake wouldnt get there; one call to Bake Me A Wish and I had my answer. "If there is an address, we will try our hardest to get it there". The next day, the phone call came. The cheesecake arrived, he was happy and he promised to save me a slice. I wasn't holding my breath on that one but he did send me a campic of it but that's just not the same as a piece of gourmet cheesecake.
Bake Me A Wish
Places like this are a dime a dozen. Cashing in on the fact that some people forget birthdays or anniversaries, they are there to come to the rescue. What makes this company different? They care. To me, that means more than the price of an item or their return policy; if I can call and talk to a human and they can give me an answer that isnt being read from a script, they will have my business. I have ordered four cakes so far from Bake Me A Wish and they have all been received on time, perfectly packed and the recipients have all said the same thing, "That was the best damn cake I ever had".
Being located in New York you know there is a lot of competition with other similar companies in the "we ship gourmet cakes" business. Again, their customer service and quality of goods speaks leaps and bounds for them. Shipping isn't all that bad; $9.99 - $15.99 [depending on the type of cake] for your first cake but there is a price break if you order multiples. They are delivered using FedEx Express; I never checked the tracking on them because I usually got a 'thank you ' call a day or two after the order was placed. You can also get a 10% discount if you order two or more cakes at a time.
There are three lines to choose from, Classics [Strawberry Shortcake, Crème Caramel Cheesecake etc], Decedent Delights [Double Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Mint Chip, Cookies and Cream Oreo etc] and Classic Crumb [Old Fashioned, Black & White, Caramel Apple etc]. I was starting to think that I would never get to taste one of these until the doorbell rang and the FedEx guy was standing there with a box for me. When I saw the name on the slip I couldn't help but smile. Someone sent me one! Doing what any slap-happy chocolate lover would do, I ripped the box open, cut a couple pieces and shared my chocolaty goodness with my favorite FedEx driver.
You can pay for your order using the usual credit cards; MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover Card. My orders were not billed until the cakes shipped out so that is always nice; so far no delays in shipping or back orders and everyone that has received them has loved them and raved about them. Are these cakes worth it? After seeing the reactions of people who have received them as well as my own that was sent as a surprise [giver still unknown], I can say this; if you appreciate a gourmet taste then it is worth every single penny.
