  1. Interesting that this blog was written on June 7th. My wedding was on June 4th and we ordered our wedding cake from Potito's, in fact, we didn't even look or call anywhere else. We didn't care was the price was, we loved Potito's. Well, a word of warning, if you want your cake deliveried on time and you do not want your caketopper destroyed, DO NOT have Potito's for your wedding cake.

    Our cake arrived as the guest were arriving, it was deliveried an hour and a half late. The delivery guys rushed displaying our cake and placing our cake topper (which was a gift that went along with our theme) it fell and shattered. They replaced it with an embarassing plastic toy looking thing. It just looks great in pictures:( To top it off, Potito's did not even bother to inform us of this "accident" We have called 6 times so far, and no one will call us back!

    It saddens me to have to write this about our favorite bakery, but it was our wedding cake, the only one I will ever have! This could have been handled alot differently.

  2. Sorry you had a bad experience--if you'd like to at least have your photos with the topper go to and read about "FixSuckyPics"--possibly the bakery might even be willing to pay for it. I can imagine how sad you were--regretfully this is not the first time I've heard about this problem from brides (different bakeries involved). For anyone reading this, you might want to give your topper to your day of coordinator so they can add it to your cake, they're not delivering a tricky cake so maybe less chance for breakage. Just a thought.
