TestimonialsI've ordered cakes from many places because I'm usually the cake person for all of my friends birthdays. I've almost tried all of the cake stores and Lori's is BY FAR, THE BEST in 40 mile radius of UIUC. When I mean the best, I'm mean both the artistic design and taste of the cake. Her custom decorations are incredible. I'm so grateful that there's such a great cake place near UIUC so I don't need to go to chicago everytime. I will be ordering again in a few weeks :D P.S. I usually do not write reviews. I think this is the 4th one I've written in my life, and the other 2 are negative reviews on amazon.--- Charlie---                              Lori of Cakes by Lori out of Hawthorn Suites in Champaign, IL is the best wedding cake for the best price in town! Lori provides exceptional service, attention to detail, and personal touch that a larger baker cannot offer. She cares about her clients and their special day and goes above and beyond what is expected. Plus, her buttercream frosting is out of this world. My groom and I cherished the cake day of our wedding. But, we loved it even more that Lori promises to bake a fresh top-tier for your one-year-anniversary. The cost of the top-tier remake in including in the initial pricing of the cake. My groom and I were thrilled that we didn't have to eat frozen, old cake on our first year anniversary! Because we've had such a great experience with Lori, we intend to get our top-tier remade every year for anniversary to commemorate our special day. If you are a Champaign-Urbana local, look no further than Cakes by Lori for your wedding day....                                                                                                    I just wanted to thank you for your contribution to our wedding. The cake was gorgeous and it tasted amazing! We look forward to getting in touch with you next year for our anniversary! I appreciate your help and will definitely tell everyone I know how wonderful you are! Rachel Sheets

Lori was so nice and easy to work with. I didn't have much of a "vision" for my wedding cake so I told her to do what she thought would look nice with our rustic theme! She made a beautiful (and super yummy) cake for us that we will remember forever! Thanks for your hard work Lori!
