My new mother-in-law stumbled upon this place and got me to taste their cakes for my wedding. I am so glad I did. I had Q and her team make our wedding cake and it was both beautiful and delicious! Everyone gave me compliments on the cake. I had three tiers which had white, chocolate, and lemon cake. It was all good but the lemon was the best. Everyone ate EVERY. BIT. of the cake. She used fondant on our cake which I don't prefer, but her fondant wass so good that I actually thought it was buttercream. Also, the prices are very reasonable. I recommend!
I stopped by Queneesha Meyers' shop, Q's Cakes. My goal was to buy a slice of cake. When I got there, she was still decorating a couple of cakes. One was her new cake, NEAPOLITAN. Once I saw it, I KNEW it was mine! I wasn't there for a slice: I NEEDED the whole cake! Boy, am I happy I bought it! It is INCREDIBLE! You need to go by and let her hook you up with a cake. She also does custom orders and she ships cakes out-of-state. I included a photo of the NEAPOLITAN CAKE! It is beautiful; AND, it tastes better than it looks!
Queenie was an absolute delight to work with. I found her at a bridal expo, where her cakes were not only the most delicious, but she knew the kind of specialized cake that I was talking about for my daughter's wedding. Her knowledge and willingness to create something "out of the ordinary" really won me over. At the wedding, all the guests remarked on the delicious and unusual cakes -- and for those of us who were already experienced with these cakes (Swedish Princess Torte), Q's creations were absolutely perfection! Also, her prices are extraordinarily reasonable, but don't go there just because her cakes are inexpensive -- go because they are truly excellent. I cannot recommend her highly enough! ( P.S. I also posted a photograph of the cakes she made for my daughter's wedding because they were so lovely)
Q was absolutely fabulous! She created the most beautiful tower of 200 cupcakes for our wedding. She invited us for a tasting session before signing the contract so we could choose exactly what we wanted. She personally delivered the cupcakes to the venue and set up the cupcake tower with all of our decorations on the dessert table. We couldn't have dreamed of anything better! We were extremely pleased with the overall experience and also very happy to support a local business woman.
Good experience. Friendly and fast service. Cake tasted great and reasonable price compared to others (especially for a good quality cake). Given that I put in my order last minute, they worked faster than I expected and were still willing to make the fondant figure I requested. I highly recommend and would come again.
I've been ordering everything from Q for 5+ years from all of her locations, and have yet to be disappointed. If anything, I've always been surprised by the consistent and reasonable pricing I receive for such exceptional quality. I've had birthday, baby & bridal shower, wedding, military ball and numerous other occasions I've ordered for; from months in advance to the last second (which I don't recommend because it's not fair to her business), and have never been told no or let down. I have family in California that live within walking distance to bakeries and they have orders shipped from Q. I have never really liked coconut and she converted me to my all time favorite cake ever, her coconut (might as well be crack) cake. My guilty pleasure is freezing a slice & having it with coffee. I can't say enough good things about this woman, her business, and the positive influence she has on family, friends and the community. My only regret is not ordering from her more, but I'd bankrupt myself and my clothes wouldn't fit. If you haven't ordered yet, you are missing out on one of life's guilty pleasures and a true blessing - I'm talking about Q and her baked goods ;-) Support this woman-minority-Veteran-owned small business!!!
I've been purchasing cupcakes from this place for about five years and have never been disappointed. Q always delivers fresh, moist, tasty and one of a kind treats. She will forever have my business. Oh, and she ships for the out of town people!
Amazing cakes. I have had the pleasure of trying Q's cakes, cupcakes as well as Oreos. Everything is delicious and made from the heart. Q is an amazing woman who is kind and has such a great presence.
They were able to squeeze me in on a late order for a 1/4 sheet birthday cake - thank you. The white birthday cake with lemon filling was a big hit at the party. The 5 pieces of artwork in the frosting was perfect. I would definitely come here again for a custom cake.
Really darned good. Very friendly, great customer service, and our daughter loved her birthday cake.
Q made the cake for my wedding on May 28th, 2017 and it was AMAZING. She was so, so easy to work with, she made exactly what we asked for, and the value was quite literally unbeatable. The fact that she makes the richest, most delicious chocolate cake doesn't hurt! I will certainly be getting cakes from Q in the future!
From our first order to our most recent, Q's cakes has always met our needs. One of the best places we have ever dealt with. Don't cut corners with discount stores. Do right by your family and let Q's take care of you. The only bakey for us.
WOW! Is the best that I can do to describe what an amazing job Q did with our wedding cake. It was gorgeous and delicious! Everyone loved it and complimented all night. She did exactly what we wanted for our special day. I would definitely recommend her to anyone! She does an amazing job! 5 stars to Q!!!!! We ordered red velvet and white chocolate macadamia. Everything tasted soooo good! She even gave us a cake for our anniversary, we will definitely order more from Q cakes!
Q is wonderful, she puts tons of dedication into her cakes. If you don't go for the cake she has frosted treats too!
We love this place. Everything we've tried is delicious! The staff is friendly and helpful.
Parking lot is behind the store. :)
I'm happy Q Cake's answered back so quickly, we got our order placed thank you
I had high hopes in this bakery as it's woman-owned and operated, it's a local business, and it had great reviews. Ordered a 2-tiered cake for a baby shower and Q and I went over several photos of what the cake could look like. Placed my order over a week in advance. Paid nearly $200 for this cake and it came back looking rag-tag and not like a single photo we discussed.
When I arrived at the agreed-upon time it wasn't finished yet. She somehow had forgotten what writing to put on the cake so she asked and started cookie-cutter cutting out letters in white fondant. The frosting was pale and not at all vibrant (like she skimped on food coloring), and the decorations were plain. I could have made my own cake for a fraction of the price I paid and it would have looked better.
As for flavor, the top half was a nice chocolate, very moist. But the bottom half (the biggest portion) was a very dry vanilla, so over half of the guests had the dry portion and only a few had the moist portion. The mother of the baby wasn't pleased and I was embarrassed to bring this cake to her house - it looked like someone unprofessional made it and it didn't look anywhere near worth the nearly $200 I paid for it. Super disappointed.
I am so disappointed with this cake. I ordered a small round cake for my grandma's 94th birthday. Most basic and ugly cake ever! Paid over $30 for it. I could have gone to Wal-Mart or Costco and got a much larger and more detailed cake. Sorry but this customer won't return
So I ordered a cake for 15 to 25 people in advance! I asked for a nice and fancy cake since we were celebrating two birthdays! I’m from out of town and this bakery was recommeded to me, but I will not be returning! The cake was very simple and plain, there was no creativity with it even though I asked the bakery to go all out! I paid $60 for this cake and next time I’ll go to Walmart, Sams, or the corner market for my next cake! I am very disappointed and I was embarrassed to bring this cake to the party! I have always made my own cakes but since I was on vacation I thought it would be nice to let someone else make the cake, I was wrong and I will not make that mistake again!
I have had been to the bakery multiple times already and I have never had a bad experience! The staff are some of the most wonderful people that ABQ has to offer and their sweets and treats.... TO DIE FOR! I don't like overly sweet cakes, and they have the prefect balance! My favorite item hands down is the strawberry cupcake but I recently was at a party and had a Chantilly cake from the bakery and let me just say, amazing doesn't even begin to describe how good it was! Highly recommend to everyone and will be using them for ever event I have. You can taste the love they have for what they do.
I don't know who the past 3 reviewers are but they are obviously hitting the crack pipe a little too hard. Q makes amazing cakes. I've had 2 from her, a vanilla and a red velvet and they were to die for. I got my aunt turned on to her cakes and she ordered a beautiful baby shower cake which was also amazing. Don't trust the bad reviews. Q rocks!!!
I have ordered SEVERAL delicious desserts for many different occasions from this wonderful establishment. I live on the east coast and when Q says whatever I've ordered will be here AND in tact, it will be here and in tact. The attention to detail in design and the amount of care in packaging is remarkable. How does everything taste? EVERYTHING tastes extraordinary!! If you haven't tried anything from Q's you are depriving yourself of tastebud happiness!
Q is Great! We have ordered several cakes form her and even hired her to do our wedding! Good Service, Great prices, Outstanding Cakes! Try the Hummingbird cake, had never had one till I tried it here and now my favorite cake! Support a Veteran and get something from here!
Q Cakes has shipped to me on the east coast several times. Their quality is excellent. My cakes arrive beautiful wrapped, fresh and moist. The flavor is out of this world!! I highly recommend Q's red velvet cheesecake.
I cannot go on enough about all the delicious treats we have had from Q & her great staff! Every cake for any occasion we have comes from Q's! My new favorite is her Chantilly Cake because all of the fruit is always fresh & simply gorgeous. Our guests continually rave at every function we have about how moist & delicious the cake is! Thanks Q for always being our go to for many, many years to come! Go see Q, Alicia & the rest of their AWESOME staff for your next sweet craving for sure! ❤
Q’s Cakes is an awesome bakery! It’s a wide variety of cupcakes, cake, & sweet options. The owner has an amazing personality & is very knowledgeable about her products and the area! Q is very much recommended. Please try her sweets! Love her!
For years I've been looking for a princess tart cake for my wife on her birthday. Finally!!! I have found a local bakery that makes it. It was delicious and exactly what my wife had been searching for since leaving the Bay area. Q went above and beyond, she greeted us with a hug as we walked in and her charm will make you forget about alllll the other bakeries in town. Never will I order a cake from anyone else.
Have always had great service from Q and her staff! This is where I come for my workplace dessert catering needs as well as my personal sweet tooth needs. If you have not been, you definitely should stop by! I recommend to everyone!
She did amazing job with my wedding cake loved it also tasted great
If you need an amazing cake, this is the place!! We needed to change our order a few hours before our scheduled pick up because our daughter got sick the day before her birthday party, and we were able to change the order to the following week. The cake was incredible and delicious - I just gave her the theme of the party and said "go for it!" and our daughter was absolutely thrilled. The cake was brought to my car in the freezing rain and snow, and I was sent off with a hug - couldn't be happier with the service from Q's Cakes and Sweets!!!
I cannot tell you how wonderful this place is! Queen Q made a cupcake bouquet for my kiddo away touring college campuses on her 17th birthday, which falls on a Monday (the only day that the boutique is closed). Q personally came in and met my courier (I am in Michigan) to get my baby girl her birthday cupcakes!!! Not to mention that they are GORGEOUS. Best. Bakery. Ever.
Had my Air Force retirement cake made by Q's. I had the red velvet and it was delicious! Even my husband who's pretty critical of cakes, said it was very good and had seconds. I went with the Capt Marvel theme and she did a pretty awesome job with it. I had lots of people ask me where I got my cake from. I'm currently eating leftovers! She also gave me military discount and brought the cake out to my car. I will definitely be ordering from Q again. I added a pic under photos. I did forget to ask her to write on it so one of my coworkers added some writing.
Best vegan cake ever! Thank you for making a beautiful cake. Great service and creativity👍🏼
Hidden gem! I love the turkey burger and chicken salad on a croissant. Veggies are seasoned to perfection! Blondies are amazing!
AMAZING!!! Had Q make a cake for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. It was BRILLIANT! One of the best tasting cakes I've ever had. This woman has a gift from GOD, very talented. Her cakes are sweet, and so is she. Very kind. Thanks a bunch Q! GOD bless you!
Wow! I'm not a big sweets guy, so when I ordered my cake for my sons graduation, it shocked me... I was blown away, how is this cake so moist, and what is in this icing that taste so dang good. Thanks so much Q, my son was a happy guy and that made my day, gave me life! My now go to bakery and I guess I like sweets now... Q's sweet!
Berry Chantilly cake is the BOMB!!! Full of berries and yummy goodness. Not to mention the oatmeal creme pies are soooo very good. Love Q's. You must try the homemade pies for your holiday dinners.
Q is amazing! Everything we had from her shop was moist, flavorful and not to mention, beautiful. My daughter was in ABQ at UNM thousands of miles from home during her Sweet 16 and Q took excellent care of her. She designed the perfect cake in flavors she loved and went to great lengths to make her day perfect with personal delivery. If I were local, this would be my GO TO bake shop!
Very busy little shop- and understandably so! We had our wedding cake and cupcakes made here and people went crazy over them. there are so many flavors and the cakes are moist and delicious. We had an amazing tasting experience beforehand when we were deciding on a wedding cake, and as soon as we took a bite, it was a no brainer that we would go with Q!
I ordered the small cupcake bouquet for an employee. I ordered the gluten free option and they were delicious not to mention the decorations were amazing! Highly recommend.
We ordered a almond flavored 3 tier Dia De Los Muertos cake this past October. While some other bakers did not even return our call they scheduled us for a tasting next day. The cake was delivered in a timely manner and was delicious. I highly recommend them for treats and special occasion cakes.
So disappointed, the cake was very small for the 50 dollar price and didn't taste very good. There were chunks of cold butter left in the cream, it grossed me out. We only ate half the cake and threw the rest away.
I enjoyed the cupcakes the frosting was delicious and the cupcakes fluffy and airy. Definitely would purchase again.
Cant go wrong with Q's Cake she's delivering delicious Sweets and smiles.
Upon meeting Q for our wedding cake consultation, we knew that she was going to be such a pleasure to work with! She is very professional and asked before the consultation to provide 4 flavors that we would like to try for our tasting. It was so difficult to chose as her cakes are very delicious! Additionally, she truly cares about the customer and continued to make sure our vision came alive with the sweets we ordered. There were numerous changes in wedding planning due to the pandemic, yet Q was very flexible, accommodating and understanding about the changes in guest count and venue. Our wedding cake and mini cupcakes were incredible!! Our guests could not stop raving about the desserts. We highly recommend booking Q for any sweets for special occasions or visiting her shop. Best desserts in Albuquerque!
Excellent customer service. The cupcake bouquet turned out absolutely beautiful and tasted great!!! Would highly recommend to anyone who appreciates great taste with incredible attention to detail in the designs!
I ordered a key lime pie and a strawberry rhubarb pie for a birthday at work, and we were all blown away. I didn't know that I liked strawberry rhubarb until I had Q's strawberry rhubarb. This may be my new favorite! We're excited to try out her other goodies, so we have an order in for her carrot cake this Friday. Looking forward to it!
Cute shop, delicious cake, amazing frosting! Beautiful Red Rose Cake! Thank you for making my day!!!!
Someone in my office ordered a German Chocolate cake for my birthday celebration yesterday. This one had the traditional German chocolate coconut gooey filling but the outer frosting was something different and very delicious. Sort of chocolate - coffee or chocolate with a tiny bit of peanut butter? I can't really say, but it's different and delicious. It's all very sweet, but that's what it's all about on a birthday, after all! I thought it was very pretty and we were all quite pleased. I would order from here, now that I know about this place.
This is the beautiful cake done by Q for a bachelorette party. The cake was moist, fresh, and just absolutely delicious. I can't imagine going anywhere else...read this and 36 more
