I originally called Truly Scrumptious because my fiance and I had their cake at a friend's wedding and were impressed. I have also tasted some other tasty bakery items from there before. I called late October to schedule a tasting in late November. The first time I called, I gave general information such as the reception date and size, and a week prior to the tasting I called for our cake and filling flavors. She seemed pretty friendly the first call but when I called with filling flavors seemed upset and snippy when I asked (and said I'd pay) for a fourth cake/filing. I literally received a rude call 5 hours before our testing that we weren't to come in because they have too many cakes being made on the day of our reception... mind you, I called a month beforehand with the date and spoke with her the week prior and this was never mentioned. She was certainly not apologetic about it and was very short with me! I said okay because I was kind of in shock, not knowing what to say and she said you can consider us in the future and hung up. For an owner especially, they are not very customer service oriented and were extremely rude and inconsiderate. Even though I called 8 months prior to the date of our reception, I understand sometimes dates can be filled, but the date should have been checked after the first conversation -not the day of. We didn't even call another bakery because we were that interested. Because I was upset, I started telling some others what just happened and actually found a few others who agreed on their rude customer service. I guess it was our fault for not asking around until we had a problem. We will not be recommending this bakery to anyone in the future.
Exceeds Expectations! – Truly Scrumptious exceeded all expectations. I gave them an idea and 6 days notice for my wife's 40th birthday party cake. Cathy arrived an hour before the party started to set up. The cake was so well done, and with such creativity that everyone took pictures and couldn't believe that it was done locally. I would recommend this place to anyone.
truly an artist!! – I just finished working with Kathy and Truly Scrumptious on my wedding cake. WOW! What can I say? I was born and raised in NEPA but currently live in manhattan. When we decided to get married at home, I thought I would need to hire a vendor from new York to make my cake and just have them deliver it here. Well - if I ever have an event in new York, I will have KATHY make the cake and deliver it from nepa to new York! Her cakes are just that good in both design and taste. She can compete with the best of the best in any big city. Our cake was really large (5 MASSIVE tiers to accommodate our wedding of 300 people) and intricate in design. Additionally, we wanted different flavors for each tier. When I walked into our reception space and saw the cake, I was just BLOWN AWAY. Everything was above and beyond what I could have ever imagined. And I can't say enough about how delicious the cake and fillings were. People are still raving about it and asking us where in the world we had our cake made (most people thought we had hired someone from the city). If you truly want the best, there is only one place for you: truly scrumptious! And I'm so happy that Kathy has the cafe, as I will be stopping by to fill up on cupcakes and other delicious confectionary delights every time I'm home. I will so miss working with Kathy - she's truly fabulous!!
Horrible business – A word of Advice/Warning, do NOT go to Truly Scrumptious. It has been a disaster working with Cathy. Her business ethics are absolutely horrible and unreliable. My cake was late to the point my dinner guests had to stall so they could set up, my designs were all wrong, and the flavor on the tiers were mixed up. Please save yourself any grief and disappointment on yours or someone else?s special day.
