The birthday cake delivered for our beach birthdays weekend was excellent, The chocolate with chocolate ganache, topped with a Bailey cream cheese frosting was very yummy, no one could stop 'snacking' on it.

We were in town for my parents 40th anniversary and my brothers 38th birthday. Was going to order a cake for the occasions however they were closed for the entire month of July. I understand that as a fellow cake baker/decorator to another! Enjoy the time off I am sure it is well deserved. Your menu looks amazing

Our son was at fishing camp in Port Aransas over his 13th Birthday. At the last minute, Tammy was able to make 3 dozen, delicious cupcakes and deliver them to the camp for us. They were perfect!

When my in-laws decided to celebrate their 50th anniversary in Port Aransas and Rockport, the search was on for a cake. We didn't want to get something from the grocery store, and honestly, I haven't been too impressed with some of the bakeries in Corpus Christi. So after a little research, I settled on That Takes the Cake. Tammy could... More

The birthday cake we ordered was not only BEAUTIFUL but it was melt in your mouth awesome! We came to Port Aransas for a vacation and celebrated my Daughter's birthday while we were there. Tammy delivered it to our hotel - it really made this birthday special. I could not say enough good things to express our appreciation and enjoyment.

Tammy's cakes are absolutely the most beautiful and yummiest cakes on the island. She makes everything from scratch and her creativity is amazing. We've used her for several events and they are always delicious and beautiful! Delightful lady and cakes!

So good even your mother will enjoy it (as did mine)! Great coffee selection too. Very clean. Run by a local family. Lots of baked goods but their breakfast is also wonderful.

Bundy's made the coolest wedding cake. Looked great & tasted awesome. They also did the flowers for the wedding which were beautiful. They were easy to work with as we were planning the wedding from Michigan.

I look forward to going to Bundy's every Sunday after church. The Bread puddin is to die for! I also enjoy the scrambled eggs with biscuit and gravy. The coffee is really good and fresh. If it is your first visit, you can help yourself to the coffee and proceed to the register to order. Unfortunately, no one is greeting... More
