Amazing! Specially Cakes did our wedding cake, cupcakes, & cakepops. Everyone LOVED them. The wedding cake was gorgeous & they arranged everything beautifully on the table. So easy to work with! I highly recommend & hope to use them for other occasions in the future.

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!

Specialty cakes made all the cupcakes for our wedding and each one was absolutely perfect. From consultation to executing our plans, this bakery is wonderful to work with and reliable in making your day extra special. I highly recommend them!

Special thanks to Specialty Cakes for the most beautiful and delicious wedding cake! We provided and a photo of our vision and Specialty Cakes delivered exactly what we were looking for. We had white and chocolate flavors and received many compliments on how yummy and moist the cake was!

I have ordered all of my children’s 16th Birthday cakes from here. They tasted awesome and were beautiful! Thank you so much! We’re going to miss you!

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!

Thanks Tammy. Today i went it towards closing time. The owner was really courteous to listen in my small order which is months apart. She took out time to explain and suggest .I asked one cup cake for buying , to avoid charge on my credit card she gave it to me for free. Awesome cup cake with nice butter cream frosting which was sweetened just the right amount. The bakers are extremely creative and the owner tried to fit in my budget. Would definitely go in. Awesome customer service , great quality - a hidden gem in a small town

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!

Christine Laux

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.

Tammy was great during our consultation and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful whenever we interacted with them via emails, stopping by the shop, and even during the day of delivery. We ordered a small cake and an assortment of cupcakes and we rented a tiered gold stand; everything was delicious and the prices were very reasonable. We gave them a bag with silk flowers and a cake topper without much clear direction and they turned it into something amazing (unfortunately I didn't have the presence of mind to take a picture during set up, but I'll try to update once we get pictures from the photographers)! Highly recommended!

Specialty Cakes made our cake and it was beyond beautiful. It made such a statement in the room, exactly what we were looking for and the flavors we chose were just as amazing as the cake looked. Everyone that worked there was amazing which made choosing to go with their business a "piece of cake"! We highly recommend Specialty Cakes!!!

Amazing cakes. Not only did it look fantastic it was also the best birthday cake I'd ever eaten. I've had 2 from here so far and I can't give enough compliments.

There is no doubt that the cakes I ordered were tasty; however I thought the price was a little steep. I paid $90 for two dozen cup cakes and a decorated 6 inch round cake. I wanted the cup cakes decorated, but the lady on the phone said it would be an extra $30 per dozen to decorate the cupcakes. I also wanted several flavors of cup cakes, but she told me I could only order one flavor per dozen. Then a week later I went over to my mothers house to find that she had made an almost identical order to which she was only charged $50. She was also able to order multiple flavors of cupcakes per dozen. My family has always loved there cakes, but this will be the last cake we buy from specialty cakes. I would like to say again that the cakes were delicious! I'm just pissed because I feel like I was overcharged.

I have order other cakes from here and have had great experiences with them. When planning a baby shower I decided to go all out with the cake and get it from here. It looked great! It was exactly want I wanted, but the cake was a different story. I had ordered half red velvet and half carrot cake. The red velvet was EXTREMELY dry. I love cake and I didn't even want to finish one piece of it because it was so dry. The carrot cake was the exact opposite. It was under cooked and super moist and even parts of it were still batter. I was very disappointed in the cake and wished I had just gotten a cake from Walmart. I would have saved money and it would have tasted better than this cake. I have had other great experiences with them but this one horrible experience will guarantee me never going back.

I had ordered cupcakes for a baby shower. The cupcakes were very disappointing visually when we opened the box. For the high price, the cupcakes were very small, they didn't even fill the paper cups they were baked in and they were way overbaked. very dry. Sorry for the bad review, but, what a waste of $50.

I had cupcakes delivered to my grandparents who live in Springfield. They LOVED them! I ordered the chocolate cupcakes and the strawberry cupcakes (a dozen of each) and they said they were the best cupcakes ever - high praise from my sweet-tooth grandpa! My uncle was visiting too and he also told me they were very delicious. Let me just say that between the 3 of them, they ate 2 dozen cupcakes in 4 days! The customer service on the phone was fine for me - and after the rave reviews, I would definitely order from them again!

Being new to the area, I visited this shop a couple of weeks ago on a Tuesday and was highly disappointed. I went in early in the morning and the girl working up front (I believe is the owners daughter) reeked of marijuana. I thought at first that it may have been coming from outside when the door was opened by when she leaned into show me a picture of a cake I could clearly smell it was coming from her. I couldn't believe that no one else in the back working had noticed, or even her boss. Over all, cute shop and atmosphere, disappointing customer service.

I live in Chicago, and my boyfriend lives in Springfield. I searched for awhile online to find somewhere in Springfield that delivered cakes for his birthday. I then stumbled upon Specialty Cakes, and I am pleased I did! He received the cake at exactly the time I wanted it delivered, and it came out beautifully! It also got great reviews from his co-workers because of how good it tasted and how it was designed! I would definitely recommended to anyone in the Springfield area :)

I found specialty cakes while searching for someone to create the wedding cake of my dreams. I was having a nightmare of time finding someone to create the piped lace details that I wanted. No one was "brave" enough to take on the challenge. Then I found Tammy!! She was wonderful and had absolutely no reservations about taking on my vision. In fact she had some great ideas to add. She really was wonderful to work with and the end results was more than I could have ever dreamed of. My cake was one of the favorite parts of the wedding! It was stunning! I will continue to do business here and no where else!
