Organic Lemon Velvet Cake

(Customer Reviews)

Good Cakes & Bakes’ signature lemon velvet cake is a spin on April’s grandmother’s lemon cake, which she used to make every Sunday after church. It’s packed with three layers of REAL lemon flavor: the lemon cake is super bright and tender, there’s a layer of tart lemon curd in-between each layer, and it’s topped with cream cheese icing that’s infused with freshly-squeezed lemon juice and lemon zest. This cake was raved about by Carson Daly and Savannah Guthrie on the Today Show, and it sells out daily!

Since she was a child, Detroit native April Anderson knew that she wanted to be a baker. She teamed up with her wife Michelle and opened Good Cakes & Bakes in Detroit in 2013. Good Cakes & Bakes uses only the freshest natural ingredients, including locally-grown produce, in its wholesome, organic Southern-inspired baked goods like lemon velvet, red velvet, and vegan carrot cakes. April Anderson has been featured as a “Changemaker Chef to Watch” by the James Beard Foundation and has baked for Oprah Winfrey.

Loved, loved, loved that I found this extremely delicious organic german chocolate cake for my birthday that I would normally make for myself, which would take approximately 4 hours start to finish. The delicious cake tasted exactly how I make mine every year. The cake texture was moist and perfectly chocolatey, and the icing was perfectly textured and not super sweet, just like I make mine! The packaging was top notch. It came frozen and completely intact. I followed the provided instructions. It arrived the afternoon of my birthday, which was perfect for leaving on the counter for several hours before serving after my birthday dinner. We will definitely be repeat customers for sure! Oh, and after slicing the leftovers to freeze, there was about 1.5 cups of crumbs and icing leftover, so we use it as a topper for our favorite Yonanas frozen banana dessert.. the best combination with this cake for sure!

The cake was a gift for family members who I couldn’t see in person for Thanksgiving this year due to COVID-19. It was a huge hit as far as taste and they loved that it came from a bakery local to them. Additionally, it arrived a whole day early so I didn’t have to stress about whether they would be able to enjoy it on the holiday. Overall, I am super happy with how the experience was from start to finish.

This is my second purchase with Goldbelly, and my second with this merchant Good Cakes and Bakes, and the second experience is even better than the first…which was already a “10”! There are so many wonderful option to choose from. I loved the care that was taken to package my purchase, the presentation of the delivery, and being kept up-to-date with my order’s processing and timing. I’ve never had a problem and already looking forward to my next purchase and I haven’t even finished this cake yet!

The site had an excellent selection. The search engine on the specific site worked well so I could easily find exactly what I was looking for. My son couldn't quit raving about your Vegan Carrot Cake. It was, according to him and friends, "AMAZING". Also, thanks for the coupon. That was very appreciated.
