My mom has been ording cakes from Carmen Rose ever since she was selling them from her house..... They used to be delicious but not sure what happened??? seems like there was a change in ingredients and now she puts way too much frosting!!!! the only thing that can caome to my mind is that ever since she increased her expenses (rent, labor) she had to cut back on the quality...... Sucks.... i used to love these cakes, now i can't stand them.... BTW i agree with the service, it is terrible and slow!!!

My family has been ordering cakes from Rosa when she was selling them out of her house, and we never had a problem with her. Recently we noticed that the cakes were tasting a little off, and then the worse came. She sold my brothers birthday cake to someone else, even though we had ordered it one full week in advanced. At first we thought it was just a one time thing. Then they sold my uncles cake to someone else this March, and then my grandfather's cake to someone else just two weeks ago. This time they did not offer a replacement cake. I had to run to Shop Rite and get an ice cream cake. Furthermore, from what I have gathered from the other customers waiting for their bake goods, this is becoming a big problem, happening to more and more people, and when you order something a week in advanced there is know excuse for this poor customer service.

Their cakes are great and the merengue is awesome. You have the perfect mixture of sweetness and moisture. The only thing I can say is that they do not decorate very well. I once ordered a cake that ended up looking nothing like the picture and the handwriting is awful. They need to take more time in decorating nicely their cakes.

I have been a customer for over 15yrs. They are a christian family, respectful, and honest. The quality of the cakes are 110% fresh and there prices are very reasonable. I have never been disappointed.

This bakery is by far great. It may not seem that appealing from the outside but once you get in.... oh man. The flan, tres leches, THE DOMINICAN CAKES are all just amazing. Definitely my favorite place for sweets.
