My kids wanted a shark theme for their birthdays this year. The only place I found that said they could make that happen, was Duke Bakery and they did a FABULOUS job. The design of the shark was exactly what I was looking for. Their cake selection to choose from was amazing! Instead of boring ol' chocolate and white cupcakes, we had chocolate, strawberry, cherry, red velvet, and yellow. All of them tasted great! Thanks Duke Bakery!
When we are in Alton for boat season we discovered their bread and desserts are the best! Yesterday was my husbands birthday and panicking I ran by their bakery and they had his favorite, carrot cake. It was delicious, tasted like a homemade, and I had a happy husband! Their staff is always cheerful and happy and make the trip to Duke Bakery always a pleasant one!
Been going here for almost 40 years. Won't go anywhere else. You haven't lived until you get your cakes made by them as they go out of their way to make you happy. They even make doggy treats now. And you definitely haven't tasted true yum until you have had their donut holes. Absolute heaven. THEY ARE SIMPLY THE BEST.
