The bakery is good, but they lack customer service. I thought the first time I experienced this that it might just be an off day. Three visits later, and things are no better. They have one or two people working in the front of the store. They will not acknowledge you if they are helping another customer no matter how... More

Where do I even start? My cupcake tier was an absolute hideous mess! I paid $300 for a wedding cupcake tier. They told me twice my cake would go on top and I would need 75 cupcakes to fill in the tiers. Mind you this is for a WEDDING! The cake was left on the table. The put the cupcakes... More

I picked up my cake on 5/20/16. It was the type of basic cake that had and image strip placed around the cake. The image strip was not completely flush with cake. They kept telling me that the image on the internet was a 7" cake. I advised them that I don't work for the bakery and if they knew... More

One of the highlights of my wedding was my maid of honor’s speech, in which she thanked me for always knowing the best places to eat, the best dishes to get, the best desserts to end a meal with. Ironically, I could not have done a worse job than selecting Cannons for my wedding cake. Although I provided the bakery... More

CANNONS CAKES - I used to think this was a great bakery, not anymore. I took my niece there to purchase her wedding cake. The consultation/tasting went well as she like the samples they gave her. She provided Cannon’s with a picture of the style cake she wanted and a color swatch for the beginning color of her ombre cake.... More

My husband and I were looking for a good bakery,we ran across cannons. I was very excited that we found a Bakery that could make designer cakes. I told them that this was our first time coming here and I'm a little nervous because I order cakes from somewhere else, but this time I'm going to order from here because... More

My family has been getting cakes from Cannon's for as long as I can remember. Their cakes are delicious and they could not be any more helpful. Have never been disappointed with anything from Cannon's.

Purchased cream puffs Friday before Christmas. Gave as gift to someone, so embarrassed. Stuffing tasted like it was filled with cottage cheese. Dough wasn't even cooked through white in color - not golden color as a cream puff shell should be.
