We rely on Bent Fork for all of our family birthday cakes, but what really knocked us out recently were the AMAZING fruit pies! Truly the best apple and cherry pies we have ever had- flaky crust, true flavor of fruit (not too sweet).

The cakes are lovely, with real buttercream. Bent Fork is a real gem. Highly recommended.

I now live in Mundelein, but used to live in Highwood. Knew Bent Fork was amazing, but first tried some other Lake County famous bakeries. Was very underwhelmed by their lemon options that were available. And I am happy they did not. We were so satisfied with the Grandma Bee's lemon flavor ( I think that is the name)!! They make their curd from scratch. We even decided to get a wild card flavor if the vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream and fresh raspberries, because it was to good to pass up at our cupcake tasting!!
Ashley was so helpful to get us cupcake tasting samples for s baby shower we hosted. And their prices were better then other said bakeries!! A win all around!!

We have been eating cookies and other tasty treats from the Bent Fork for years. Everything tastes fabulous, they are very friendly. Great gifts, desserts for large groups, hostess gifts or just for yourself. Yummy!

I ordered a baptism cake here based on a referral. The cake was exactly as I requested. Great frosting and not overly sweet.
