Gift for Dad

I sent the German Chocolate cake to my Dad in Wisconsin for his 73rd birthday. The cake arrived on time and in nice condition. My parents said the cake itself was very heavy ("like lead", quoting my mom), but had good flavor. The frosting, on the other hand, needed help. The coconut used in the icing tasted old which detracted from the overall taste of the cake. I was also disappointed to learn that there weren't any complimentary pralines sent with the cake ... other reviewers mentioned what a nice touch it was to have a few of those included with their order. Having paid $60 for the cake and only getting mediocre reviews from my parents, I wouldn't order this again.
Owner Response: Was unable to reach customer about cake issue. Since she mentioned not getting the free pralines we will ship the complimentary pralines to parents...10/26/19...ekj

I ordered your German chocolate cake and it was lacking in chocolate flavor. I was also pretty dry. Bottom line, it was the worst German chocolate cake I've had and it's normally my favorite.
Owner Response: Sent an email requesting a call back or email reply.
Carmel Cake / German Chocolote Cake

Since moving to Colorado from Chicago, the main thing I miss is the good food. Tasting the Carmel Cake from River Street Sweets brought back memories of the Carmel Cake back home. Delicious!!! The German Chocolate cake was really good too. I bought both cakes for about 35 co-workers. Both cakes were devoured in less than 30 minutes. Thank you for taking me back home, if only for a moment. :-)

We received the cake for my husbands 60th bday and put it in the freezer right away.. 3 days later took it out of the freezer for his bday and let it set out.. the Cake was amazing! it was very moist and delicious!.. would have never thought it was delivered from Georgia & in the freezer for a few days... I will definitely recommend River Street Sweets.. Thank you so much....
She loved it!

Our grandmother used to make German chocolate cake for my sister's birthday -- my sister and I could never duplicate her recipe. When plans to see my sister on her birthday fell through at the last moment (I live in VA, she lives in AL), I started searching for bakeries who'd deliver. The reviews on River Street Sweets were so good, I gave them a try. My sister loved it! She said the cake was pristine when delivered. And she said this German chocolate cake was as good as our grandmother's, so win-win!

Sent a German Choc Cake to my Dad for Easter/Anniversary gift (came with free pralines) HOLY SMOKES--he said "This is the best gift you've ever given me!" Also heard --in between bites-- "you're my favorite child!" LOL!!! Very impressed with the entire process--especially the delivery...was worried since it went from GA to CA; but it was on time and in perfect condition. Truly in awe of the professionalism and the quality of the cake. I will definitely be a returning customer! THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY DAD SO WONDERFULLY HAPPY!!!
