We have used Plehn’s Bakery for our family birthday parties and for our business functions for years. Multiple people will come up to us and ask where we ordered the cake. Buy local- it provides you with a superior product and makes a great impression.

The best bakery in Louisville. They serve sandwiches but I have never had them. I have only bought their delicious pastries, cookies, and cakes. The best.

I ordered just the top (plus the flowers) of their traditional wedding cake for my in-law's 25th wedding anniversary, and it was amazing! It was so beautiful, with a lot of swirls and glitter, and the flowers were gorgeous! The cake was a yellow cake...More
