Located in Libertyville (and also Round lake), this has become our favorite area bakery. From coffecakes to doughnuts to custom birthday cakes and even a wedding cake, we have never been disappointed. Not only are their products good and always fresh, those working in the...More

Purchased 2 birthday cakes. The customer service was excellent. The manager took our order and wrote down every detail. We sent her a picture of the design and the cake turned out just like we wanted. Highly Recommend.

We've never been disappointed by Lovin Oven and we go here often. From kids birthday cakes to cookies, we love them all. The staff is always knowledgeable and friendly. The only downfall is that they are a little pricey, but worth it.

Terrible service. Would not make a cake with two different fillings on layer cake. Manager with cast on her arm very rude.

I have seen and eaten numerous custom made cake creations from Lovin Oven. If you have an idea for a unique cake for a special occasion they will create it for you and the aesthetics and originality will exceed your expectations.

On two different occasions my orders have come out so incorrect and the customer service provided left me flabbergasted. If you need dessert for an important event stay away from this place!More

Sad to see this review. Admitted to our staff that the cake was excellent both times but some color variations and decorating details were 'off ' and a full refund should be given for the stress of it. When questioned by our managers she confessed...More
