Asked for a cake made to look like Bosch table saw. The staff looked it up online downloaded pictures and the cake was a perfect match. Thank you it was very well received by the birthday girl and all present.

The red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting were super moist. The decorations on the cupcakes were amazing and exactly what I asked for. Their staff is extremely friendly and very helpful.

If you want the best cake for your event, check out Specialty Cakes! They offer so much more than just cake but for our wedding we were looking specifically for cake. Cake tasting is probably the most exciting and anticipated event during the planning process! Specialty Cakes delivered with excellent flavor, presentation, easy process, and wonderful workers! Even though we all wanted to go taste more cake, we knew in the first few bites that we were sold. Who says a wedding cake has to be a boring white and chocolate cake? This place offers so many great options. My husband and I couldn’t make up our minds, so our wedding cake included 4 different flavors, White, Lemon, Strawberry, and Banana! They also made us an amazing Rumchata adult sheet cake and a Spice/Red Velvet sheet cake for all of us to enjoy! Our guests were incredibly happy with all of the options and raved about the flavor and design of our cake. We could not be happier with our decision on working with Specialty Cakes, they were tremendous with our whole wedding!

I have so greatly increased my cake consumption because of Specialty Cakes. They not only look terrific, but taste great!! Every time I have a cake or cupcakes made by Specialty Cakes at an event, everyone ALWAYS asks me where I got them and gives them a rave review. They literally become a conversation piece at every event both for taste and creativity/appearance. She has made both of my daughters first birthday cakes (which are a huge deal to me), my sisters wedding cake, cupcakes for my sisters baby shower, birthday cupcakes, and my parents’ anniversary cake! Such good flavors and fillings! Pics included below in comments!

This review is long overdue. Tammy's Specialty Cakes made a breath-taking cake for me. It wasn't just any ol' cake. It was our wedding cake back in 2015! I remember when we first went in for our cake tasting and learned of ALL of the different types of cake flavors we could choose from. We invited our in-laws to the tasting and they loved it too! In fact, my father-in-law loved it so much that he continued to come back after our wedding to get seconds, thirds, etc.! Tammy is very informative when it comes to frosting types and flavor combos. We chose the caramel, german chocolate, and vanilla. We loved it. Our guests loved it. How cool that they got a *few* options of cake to choose from! Safe to say, we will miss Tammy's Specialty Cakes

Excellent work!!! Once again u guys exceed my expectations. Staff is always very sweet and accommodating! Thank you so much !!


I live is Missouri and needed to find a cake decorator in Springfield IL. After finding specialty cakes, I corresponded by email and at times asked a lot of questions. Tammy was so patient with me and answered my emails very quickly. The graduation cake turned out to be more than I imagined and made my event perfect! The cake was so beautifully decorated and delicious! I could tell speciality cakes staff spent a lot of their time and effort personalizing my order.

BEST. CAKES. EVER. The cakes are always fresh whenever you pick them up and the icing isn't overly sweet, which is perfect. I've never had a cake from here that was messed up or tasted bad. Aside from cakes, the other homemade sweets, like cupcakes and cake pops, are delicious!


Has always done us right with edible images. Kudos to the staff here!

We worked with Tammy at Specialty Cakes for our wedding cake. We had a multi-tier cake which included three different flavors: banana, vanilla and chocolate. The cake not only looked amazing, but tasted amazing as well! We have heard and continue to hear great things about the cake! We would definitely recommend Specialty Cakes to anyone – whether it’s for a cake or cupcakes – their baked goods are the best!

Very friendly staff. Beautiful cakes. We ordered chocolate covered strawberries which were delicious! I also bought a ready-made cupcake and a couple of cake pops!

Melinda Rhodes

These ladies are so amazing. Showed them a picture and said can you make me a cake. They made it and made it amazing. Can't wait for the birthday girl to see it. I'm so excited.

Love love love their cakes. We use them for all celebrations when we are visiting and always stop by to get a cupcake or 12 when we don't have a good reason to order a cake. All are good but the vanilla is hands down my favorite. So happy to have found this place , wish they were closer to my hometown. Never had a problem with an order and always tastes great, moist cake and fantastic frosting.
