“We order all our cakes here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Since Hometown desserts opened, it offers a fine selection of baked goods for any special occasion. We particularly like the carrot cake. Today we ordered a chocolate cake for Mom's Day. It is just around the corner from hour house too! Sandy the owner is very pleasant and efficient. Try them next time you are looking for something special.

“Phenomenal Cake Pops1!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

This place is addicting....Cake Pops are to die for, very moist almost fudge like quality on inside with sugary icy like coating that melts in your mouth....Single serving key lime and Chocolate pies are great as well..

“Very Small But as they say... Any port in the storm....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

We were walking for a long time on the Anna Maria Key and we were getting hot, tired, and thirsty. We stopped into Hometown Desserts and found some milk, bottled water, and treats for the kids. There was not much to chose from but the place was very small. We went outside to eat our treats and there were no tables or chairs. I am not sure why they did not provide these but they are a must. Maybe they are new and just learning but they do have some room for improvement.......

I didn't see a review on our food. Your review was based on a bottle of water, a carton of milk and the size of our business? I guess you also missed the tables and chairs that line the whole sidewalk..... We love our small business.

“looks better than it tastes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

I am an accomplished baker. This bakery is not as good as home made. The reviews were so good that I had high expectations. The key like pie was run of the mill. i think it was the same recipe that every one else uses. But the price was very high. Two of my family members had cupcakes which were moist if not extremely flavorful. They enjoyed them. I had gluten free key lime pie. It was poor. It had whipped topping not whipped cream. Yuck. I had to drizzle lime juice on it so it would taste like lime! The crust was gooey. I wish she had made i crustless. I could only eat half. We will not return.

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your desserts. You're the first negative response we've received since we opened almost 2 years ago. Our Key Lime Pie was even mentioned in the Wall Street Journal Travel section recently. We strive for perfection in everything we make.
