Hi Kathy,

I just wanted to follow up with you to let you know that the finished product was exceptionally beautiful!  You did an amazing job capturing the details of the pictures sent to you.  Thank you!
There were many compliments and inquiries about “who did the cake”. Hopefully someone will decide to choose Helfer’s for their next event.
Also the cake itself was delicious!
Thanks again for doing a great job. May God bless you and continue to use your gift to bless many people.

I just had Chicken Pot Pie for dinner. WOW!!!!! It was great! I hope my wife brings more home for dinner this winter. I can't think of anything better on a cold winter night. Thanks,

I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful cake you prepared for my daughter in laws baby shower. We ordered the baby carriage cake with strawberry filling. Everyone at the shower raved about the cake. It was beautiful and soooooo delicious. I drive to Helfer's from Wentzville for all my cakes. No one can compare to what you prepare!!

I just wanted  thank you all for the beautiful,lovely butter cream cake that I ordered for my mom's 79th birthday on Feb. 16, 2013. It was a beautiful half of a sheet cake with purple roses, very moist & not to mention it was the best cake I've tasted in a long time everyone were  asking, where did I order that cake from & of course I told them I got it from Helfer's.

I live in Moberly, Mo and my wonderful daughter brought me one of your cakes for my birthday. It was a white cake with a strawberry filling and whipped cream frosting. It was the best cake I have ever tasted! Now, I'm going to want her to bring me one of your cakes every time she comes to visit me!

Shirley Skinner

Very first time I ever got your cake was my kid's graduation. It was awesome! Moist yellow cake with fresh strawberry filling. Forty people ate a cake made for sixty ... not a crumb left!

Angie Yarbrough

Ordered 1/2 sheet for a baby shower at work: lemon cake with raspberry filling. Exceedingly delicious! Many, many compliments and inquiries about "where did you get this cake?" I told everyone it came from Helfer's in Florissant. Hope that brings you a couple of new orders. Anyway, thank you for everything. Decoration was exactly as I asked for; cake was excellent. I'll definitely be back for my next special occasion!

E. Stansbury

Thank you so much for a beautiful and delicious cake. When my daughter designed this cake we were not sure if it could be made. You guys came through for us with bells and whistles. I can't thank you enough.


My daughter recommended Helfer's as THE place for lunch. She, my brother and I will be there on Thursday, June 30th, for lunch at about 1230-1245 hrs. Your website is beautiful.

Kathy, The graduation cake you made for our daughter Chelsea was incredible! Everyone loved it, and several people commented that it was the best cake they had ever had. One of those people was a recent graduate who had eaten many different cakes lately. The decorating was so beautiful and the icing (butter cream) was delicious. It's a good thing we bought the whole sheet cake as many guests asked for a piece to take home with them. Thank you for the totally pleasant experience of dealing with you and your bakery.

Kay Hawkins

so much for the doing a great job on my daughter's graduation cake. The butter cream icing was "to die for" and the cake was SUPER moist. Everyone loved the decorations and Nicole's picture turned out great. They got a big kick when I had to slice the cake and cut into the picture. I know I can go to other places to get cakes but honestly, I have always chosen HELFER's when it comes to celebrating a family event. I don't mind paying a little more because your cakes are the BEST! THANKS again for helping make my daughter's graduation party a very successful one. How do you get your cakes so moist?

We were celebrating a friends birthday this past Saturday, February 5, 2011. We didn't realize until 1:00 in the afternoon that she didn't have a cake, I called the bakery and they saved the day. They were able to make her cake and have it ready for pick-up by 3 p.m. Thank you Helfer's, the cake was beautiful and delicious.

Nickol Washington

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how impressed I was with the cake.  My son, all of his friends, their parents and even strangers commented on how AWESOME the cake looked and it tasted amazing as well. Great job!

Thank you.

Laura Hefele

My mom ordered a cake for my baby shower, and it was amazing. The cake was marble with chocolate custard filling. Everyone raved, and the leftovers were gone that very same night.

I eat at Helfer's at least 6 or more times a month. I LOVE HELFER's!

John Taylor

Just ordered a 1/2 sheet strawberry filled cake for the office. It was GREAT!!!! Look forward to doing more business with you!

My family and I have ben going to Helfer's ever since I was in grade school over 20 years. There is just no better bakery in St. Louis. I am moving to North Carolina in a few months and I am going to have "Helfer's withdraw". I have never had a bad food item from Helfer's. You have the best cakes, bread, cookies, deli and most of all the worlds best gooey butter cake. Not to mention great employees. Do you guys ship? Keep up the great work!!


I have found a new love at Helfer's Pastries ... Florentines!! These are now my new FAVORITE cookies. I can't drive past Helfer's without picking up a few. My waist-line shall never forgive you (smile). Your cakes are pretty awesome too. Helfer's is one of the best bakeries in Missouri. Your employees are super nice too.

Allison Whittaker

This is the Best bakery in all of St. Louis. Keep up the great work guys!!! ;0)

Thank You.

I'm a little behind the times - I didn't know you had a testimonial page until today. About 28 years ago I purchased our daughter's wedding cake from you. I had heard about your wonderful bakery from others. The cake was not only beautiful but a delight to eat.

Joan Zaiz

Just wanted to say I just called the Bakery spare of the moment. Had an idea for my niece 21st BDay which happened to be Monday but celebrating tomorrow 4/25. Called around no Betty Boop. The lady that answered was so helpful & I can pick up today. They close @ 6 but all cakes picked up by 5. She will wait until I get there since I do not get off until 5. All I can say is 1 to 10 customer service ... I rate a 20.. Just Awesomeee

Tan Harris

My nickname for your 'Deep Butter Cake' is daydream cake!

I can eat it and think I am in the tropics, desert, or in the mountains by a running stream. However, I am at home and I'm glad that you are close by so I can get some more!

Chris Milburn

You have the BEST whipped cream cakes & chocolate covered strawberries I have ever had!

Amanda Stoving

For every family event we get Helfer's cakes. One year my mom was unable to get a cake for my baby shower. The first questions out of my mouth was, "is it a helfer's cake? " My mom devastatingly said, "No". Whipped cream cakes are our favorite!!! Though sometimes we do the butter cream if we won't be able to refrigerate. Both are fantastic!!! By the way, nobody does chicken salad like Helfer's. The best!!

Deborah Austin

Your decorated cakes are wonderful-pretty looking and delicious tasting. The sprinkling of 'glittering suger' is a nice finishing touch.

Carole Weusthoff

Thank you! Our wedding cake was DELICIOUS!

Vanessa Scholl

The retirement cake that I purchased was beautiful! You did such a great job (As Always).
Thank You

Diane Wright

Someone brought me a cupcake today at work -- best cupcake I've ever had. A long time ago in college (far longer than I care to admit!) I used to work in a bakery/catering company/deli like yours sounds like - and it was so much fun. I live in South City, but might just have to make the field trip to come in and check you out. Thanks!!

Theresa Holmstrom

My family got me the strawberry whipped icing cake ...  it was the talk of the party! Everyone enjoyed it even the kids. Thanks for helping make my event more enjoyable.

Shauna Bumpers

I would like to thank THE GREAT ladies at Helfers in the decoration department, you made my daughters sweet sixteen cake the hit of the party. Everyone was in AW of how detailed her cake was. Great Job I will recommend Helfer's to everyone!

A. Gwynn

Thank you. We went to Helfers today for the first time. Someone where I work brought in a stollen last week. It was so good that I asked where she got it, and it was Helfers. I looked it up on line, found out where it was and signed up for the Gift Certificate just for fun. We decided we would go to Helfers today for breakfast since we were both off, and try out some pastries. Then last night we discovered that I won a certificate. Wonderful! The pastries were great and the coffee was equally good. Thank you again - and we'll be back.

Hello, I came in last Friday, 11/7 to buy gooey butter cookies to take with me on a trip to Japan. We were asked to bring a favorite local treat and I thought the cookies would travel better than gooey butter cake. I wanted to let you know they were a HUGE hit. There were more than 100 different "treats" that were broight in and in the first 30 minutes maybe 10 cookies out of the 2 lbs I bought were left and everyone told me how good they were. It was very impressive. The only thing that was eaten faster were tequila filled chocolates. Thank you for helping me share a St. Louis classic treat. It was a lot of fun watching them being enjoyed!

Thanks Again,
John Donnelly
