Excellent special-order cakes! – I've ordered cakes for my co-workers from Wuollet, and not only do people think they're delicious, but the service is amazing. I called on a Thursday afternoon asking for a cake to be ready Friday morning. The catch was that I needed the message on the cake to be written in *Arabic* -- I was able to get there at 4:10 on a Thursday afternoon to drop the message off. The employee I spoke with said it might be a bit tight to get the message to their bakery, but that he'd call me if there were problems. I didn't get a phone call, and the next morning at 8, when I went to pick up my cake, the message on the cake was perfect! And again, the cake was scrumptious. Well worth the upgrade from a grocery store cake.
Its create-a-cake roster of flavors, fillings and adornments ensures a singular product for every customer. – In Short
What began in the late 1920s as a neighborhood bread-baking concern grew to include cakes, pastries and a following. Yet Wuollet is still a family-run bakery, watched over by two brothers, their uncle and a cousin. In the hands of Wuollet's cake artists, traditional white-on-white spectacles can ascend seven tiers. For the unconventional, Wuollet does souffle cakes featuring genoise hidden under drifts of Bavarian cream. A "sweet table" is covered in profiteroles, cheesecake and trifle.
Top notch pastries – We go here for a donut or a scone and some coffee some Saturdays. Even in the afternoon they have a decent array of pastries which are still excellent. I have also bought a cake or two from them, wow they are rich!
Things to look out for? They serve the Dunn Bros. style liquid tar coffee. I suggest walking down the block to Pandora's and getting your coffee there (hey, it's only half a block!). Oh, and their gingerbread is rock hard (I like mine al dente).
A TwinCities Institution – It is hard to imagine pulling off a wedding, graduation, birthday or open house without Wuollet's. Its cakes and tortes are sublime.
You can never go wrong with the Princess Torte. It is two layers of cream, raspberry, marizpan bliss!! Awesome for breakfast the next day!
