The Makery Cake Company was started in 2006 by a molecular biologist who had an artistic streak and a love for sharing edible art with the world. We’ve become the go to place for the wedding curious as well as people who have big imaginations and a sweet tooth. You wouldn’t usually think of us for your everyday cake, probably just our masterpieces of sugar to make a splash, but we do those “just because” cakes for you, too. No matter what cake we make for you, we pour in our hearts and souls. We’re one of the best bakeries in Denver that specializes in wedding cakes, birthday cakes, and occasion cakes!
Great tasting cake, and amazing work
Our wedding cake was beautiful and it tasted delicious!
My wedding planner, Rami Carter of Pick Me! Events, recommended Dez and the team at the Makery — and they did not disappoint! We cannot wait for our anniversary to roll around because the wedding cake went so fast that we only had the bite that we fed to each other (a vanilla chocolate chip cookie dough cake with kahlua mascarpone filling and royal buttercream frosting)!! The Makery also took our vision of a birch bark cake and saved us the cost of using fondant by re-creating the cake with buttercream instead, which came out even more beautiful than I could have imagined. We also did cupcakes and we had four amazing flavors because everything we tried was so delicious that we could not pick just one or two. The value was beyond compare and Dez even had acrylic cupcake towers that she was willing to lend us for the day (in the end, I bought Le Creuset cupcake stands and cake towers that matched our color scheme and ordered a wooden cake stand for the cutting cake from postscripts, an Etsy shop). We also decided to use cupcake wrappers to differentiate the cupcake flavors, and so I bought different colored wrappers and then Dez and her team were sweet enough to put them on the cupcakes themselves! I keep trying to stop myself from going back to the shop just to order another dozen cupcakes . . . . . which just tells you how awesome the Makery and the Makery crew are!
I had them make a birthday cake for my son. It was awesome!! The cake was so moist and delicious, it was exactly what I wanted. They were a little more expensive than I was hoping, but totally worth it!!! Love them love them love them.
Very happy with our wedding cake from here. Tasted amazing and my wife was very happy with their decoration and talent. Highly reccomend!
Our cake was perfect. The design was simple and elegant, exactly how we wanted it. We got slightly less than our head count because we have experienced other weddings where people leave so many uneaten cakes at their tables and we really didn’t want that. Turns out, we should have got more because everyone wanted extra slices!! Desiree and her team produced a great looking and great tasting cake for our wedding! They’re easy to work with and will implement any ideas that you have. Thank you so much!! We had a 3-tiered cake. Bottom layer was a tres leches cake with fruit filling and the top 2 were funfetti!
Side note: we’ve used The Makery for other events (i.e. birthdays) and their cakes are always moist and delicious. The decorations are always fun and exactly how you’d want it. Thank you!!
The Makery was excellent for my wedding cake. The cake was exactly how I envisioned it and tasted delicious. It arrived on time to the reception and ready to go. No problems whatsoever. Also we got a free anniversary cake to remember our special day. The staff is very friendly and helpful and wonderful to work with. Try the free tastings. We were able to try all their varieties and select the wedding cake flavor perfect for us. I highly recommend The Makery!
I am very satisfied with The Makery. They were very understanding throughout the entire cake planning process and helped us make decisions. The flavors are all ridiculously good, and their fondant is fantastic. They made us a Sly Cooper themed wedding cake. I know we’re a weird couple. The cake had Sly Cooper comic strips running along each of the tiers with Sly and Carmelita doing the tango on top. The cake may be the most photographed thing at the wedding. And it tasted perfect. There was very little cake left. I would strongly recommend The Makery.
The experience here was perfect for our wedding cake. My wife loved he cake tasting (as did I) and they were very flexible with us in getting what we needed when we needed it. The complimentary 1 year anniversary cake was perfect and saved us from having to save and then thaw out last year’s topper.
Words cannot describe how delicious the cakes from The Makery are. Five years ago my wife and I ordered our wedding cake (and groom’s cake) from the Makery, and our friends couldn’t say enough good things about the flavors. They even made a special gluten-free cake for a friend (she said it was the best she’d ever had) and a low-sugar cheesecake for my diabetic father.
Recently, we picked up our free anniversary cake from them and enjoy it just as much. Yes, that’s right, you don’t have to freeze a layer of your cake to celebrate your anniversary with – you can call up the Makery and have them make up a special anniversary cake at no extra cost to you!
I highly recommend the Maker Cake Company.
We used the Makery for our Wedding cake, and Rehearsal Dinner Grooms Cake and they went well over our expectations. They were so easy to work with and took the photos I sent them and made our dream cake! All the guests loved the cake, brownies and cheesecake bites that were provided by the Makery. I highly recommend them, we even used them for my mom’s surprise 50th Birthday!
They did a beautiful ruffle cake with burlap flowers for our wedding and even gave us a cute little honeymoon cake to take with us that evening! Which was perfect, since we had no time to eat any cake during the reception. Reasonably priced and even accommodated several different flavors for us!
From the first phone call to the delivery of the wedding cake and cupcakes the staff and product of Makery was outstanding. They brought us in and made us feel right at home at the tasting. Taking the time to design and allow us to taste our options. I have food sensitivities and they were accommodating to making our GF wedding cake. The flavor was AMAZING! I have never been a sweets person and they knocked it out of the park.
Thank you!!! Chelsea and James Mosel
We used The Makery for our wedding in Sept 2016 and they were amazing. From my initial contact, they were friendly, professional, and very helpful. We loved the look of our cake and our guests could not stop raving about how tasty it was. I am already counting down the days until our first anniversary cake!
The Makery did a beautiful job on our wedding cake. It turned out just as we imagined and asked for! It was sooooo gorgeous!
All of our guests raved about how good the cake was, we just wished we could have had more than just when my husband and I cut it and fed each other that little bite… You see, while my husband and I were too busy dancing, our guests ate it ALL up before we even had a chance! I suppose you’d consider this a good thing!!! Just not for my husband and I (and we even ordered way more cake vs guest ratio). Luckily, The Makery provides you with a “sweetheart cake” (at no additional cost) to take home after the wedding so you can enjoy it all to yourself! Maybe that’s why they provide you with this “sweetheart cake” perhaps wedding guests eating their cake completely up is a recurring incident. Regardless, my husband and I will also be enjoying an “anniversary cake” (also at no additional cost) for our first wedding anniversary. So we can’t wait to indulge in that without having to share with everyone else… ha! We might just have to make this an anniversary tradition and purchase a little cake for ourselves every year, it’s that good!
I would recommend The Makery to everyone, we tried cake elsewhere and they weren’t nearly as good. I also thought The Makery was affordable and added bonus: they gave us a discount since they were a preferred vendor with our venue!
We had the BEST wedding cake ever!! Our guests could not stop raving about it (I was always told cake was never fully eaten and most people pass on it, but every piece was devoured!!) We got funfetti and cheesecake and both were to die for!
This season I have worked with The Makery several times and I truly enjoy working with them. They are detailed, professional and a pleasure to work with. Their design on cakes is gorgeous and the taste is even better! I would highly recommend The Makery!
The Makery recently made the cake for my wedding in December. It was a 3 tier Winter themed cake covered in snowflakes. It was amazing. Not only was it one of the most beautiful cakes I have seen but it tastes amazing and the staff was very helpful in helping me design it.
A wonderful company and a gorgeous, delicious cake! The cake was just as I imagined it and everyone at our reception raved about the raspberry filling!! A pleasure working with these bakers!!!
Wow! Wow! Wow! Best cake I’ve ever had in my entire life. My husband, who doesn’t think anyone should spend money on a cake,, actually said we would be buying cakes from the Makery for every event because it was that good.
As an added bonus, they even threw in a smash cake. I worried the size they provided would be too small so I upgraded to a larger cake. The cake was amazing, but the smaller one would’ve been a better size. That said, we absolutely loved that cake as well.
To the baker – my husband from the Midwest where all they do is eat baked goods from grandma couldn’t believe how much he enjoyed your cake. He commented on how you must’ve worked the batter absolutely perfectly as it wasn’t too dry or too moist; it was pure perfection!
When our dessert bar plans fell through 3 weeks before our wedding, The Makery Cake Company got us in for a tasting right away. We went with an 8″ “cutting” cake & sheet cake to serve. The cutting cake turned out so beautiful, exactly what I was picturing! And it was absolutely delicious!! We had so many compliments on how good the cake was. Amazing customer service, amazing cake… can’t ask for more! Needless to say, I’m SO looking forward to our anniversary cake!
AMAZING Cakes!!! really love how they will do cakes with not much notice for any occasion!! Weve done birthday cakes here, wedding cakes and always so consistent and taste amazing!!!
We were so happy we The Makery! We wanted a simple design and the end result blew us away, our cake was gorgeous and delicious! The staff made this experience truly wonderful from start to finish.
For our wedding reception we had 56 guests and a cake made for 75, and our guests ate every last crumb. We got several compliments on how tasty it was. Our guests were happy, we’re happy, thanks for a great wedding cake!

Our entire experience with The Makery was, from start to finish, so perfect and smooth — they do an amazing job! We started with their free tastings on Sundays, which made our decision that much easier. Their cake is much more moist and flavorful than a lot of other places we tried, which is hard to accomplish in this high altitude. Since we wanted a two-tier cutting cake and then sheet cake for the rest of the guests, not only was our design meeting extremely easy, but the price was very reasonable. Then, we decided to do a groom’s cake for the rehearsal dinner, and The Makery did an INCREDIBLE job of creating a Taco Bell cake; our guests were raving and everyone thought it was hilarious (and delicious!!). As an added bonus, we received a free honeymoon cake to take with us after the wedding, and they also provide a free anniversary cake for your one-year. Overall, I would definitely recommend The Makery to anyone for any celebration, they truly know what they’re doing!
The team at The Makery made selecting our wedding cake so easy and quick, and it was delicious! Our guests raved about how good it was. They also worked with our venue very well and delivered everything (including our honeymoon cake) without a hitch and with minimal involvement from me. Almost as important as how good the cakes are is their communication. They called at regular intervals to confirm appointments and delivery, making dessert the last thing I was stressed about for the wedding.
The Makery made our wedding cake experience so unique and special. Our cake turned out exactly how we wanted it no other bakery offers the amazing honey moon cake and anniversary cake deal!
Usually you have a cupcake at a wedding and it’s just dry- that is never the case here. The Makery’s cupcakes are always perfectly cooked and their team goes above and beyond to make sure it’s exactly the cake you are envisioning!
We ordered our wedding cake here. Great experience designing our cake and had good service. The cake was delicious and we were happy. A little pricey but probably normal for a wedding cake. I would recommend!!
This place provided a wonderful wedding cake for us, then went out of their way to ensure our anniversary cake was just as amazing. The staff we met really made this a truly outstanding experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you
I am a year late in my review, but nevertheless, this place will now be my to go for cakes. They did my wedding cake a year ago. Perfect and exactly what I had in mind. We chose one of their premium flavors and they were SUCH a hit with my guests. I have 0 complaints, only praises! I am looking forward to my anniversary cake.
We couldn’t have asked for a better cake company to work with. Our cake, cupcakes etc were amazing great tasting and just as stunning to look at. On time delivery and ran into no problems. Even had gluten free options for some of our family and friends that needed it!
Our wedding cake was even more beautiful than I could have imagined. It was perfect and above all, tasted great! We had several cake tastings and were disappointed in all of them until we visited the Makery. The Makery cake was moist with a wonderful flavor. From the first tasting, we were blown away by the detail the Makery team brought to our big day. I highly recommend them!
We did a two tier cake, cupcakes and cookies. They were all completely fantastic! Our guests loved it and we loved it too! My husband ate all the extra cake that we got to take home in just a few days. We’ll be getting all of our future cakes here!
I sent then a picture of some moose cupcakes and they made them perfectly for a great price. They looked so adorable and tasted great! We got so many compliments! Thanks!
The Makery is a wonderful bakery. They just did my son and daughter-in-laws cake for a Rehearsal Lunch. It was absolutely delicious and decorated just like we asked! Awesome!
Hampden Auto Body always gets our cakes from the Makery. They always turn out great. We appreciate the dairy free cakes!

Absolutely fabulous flavor and such a fun design! Family and friends loved the reindeer cake and we plan to make it an annual part of Christmas celebration. The fillings are creamy and decadent. The fondant was flawless making this a 5 star cake!~
I love all the beautifully designed cakes they have here. So much to choose from! I was able to enjoy some fun team building with cake decorating. Bobby was very helpful in showing me how to use all the different tips to use for the frosting to decorate. It was a lot of fun and I got to take home the cake that I decorated to share with my family. They loved the cake! I also tried several of the cupcakes which were all so delicious! I look forward to ordering a cake for my next event and highly recommend them. Desiree is great to work with here!
This company did an awesome job! They made a mother happy today! When you are 1,543.1 miles away from your “baby boy” and can send him an awesome birthday cake delivered to his door for his 25th – it means sooo much! He says it is delicious and he will probably get diabetes from one piece… LOL Kudos to the Makery you rock!
