Great cakes!

I ordered a 6 inch vanilla cake and 3 dozen vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream for a bridal shower and they were SO delicious! Everybody at the shower loved them! I ordered them over the phone and was hesitant about if they would match what I was describing but they were perfect! I would recommend this bakery 100%!

Made cupcakes for my son's and fiance baby shower and they were absolutely amazing and the red velvet cupcakes are out of this world!

A great place for a sweet tooth

I love this sweet treat place. They have the best looking desserts. If you are hunting for gluten free sweets, try the vanilla macaroons or cheesecake with no crust! They gave tables and chairs to sit awhile and enjoy the deliciously wonderful treats. Enjoy!

Tina Mahoney

It's always great, except it makes me gain weight. Lol the tiramisu and the 7 layer bars are my favorites. But with all the sweet treats they would be better if they had coffee instead of bottled soda.

Friendly service and they baked goods, especially the cupcakes, are awesome.


Cornerstone Bakery is a cute little bakery located in a strip mall that is opposite to a variety of good restaurants in a convenient area in Hickory. The staff is friendly and laidback, happy to accommodate any packaging of purchased items or custom cakes, etc. The bakery selection isn't as vast as other bakeries I've been to and their hours of operation change frequently; however, they're renowned for their cupcakes - which I'll agree, those are my favorite.

Love this bakery, but very sad this location is closing, all business relocating to Hwy 70, which is a terrible location for me. Cupcakes are best in town, but probably not driving down there to purchase. :(

Terri Freeman

Always good and delicious

My daughter has been asking for Macaroons for weeks. We stopped at Cornerstone on her birthday and bought all that they had. Excitement turned to disappointment because they were terrible tasting. They looked pretty and the consistency was great but they tasted like the food coloring or something was all we could taste. I was tempted to take them back and ask them taste them. Next time taste test before selling. I’m hopeful this was just a bad batch and will give them one more chance but for $2 each I will try one next time before we buy a bunch to throw away.

Clean business. Fresh items. Lil pricey but considering the variety of pastries(cupcakes, choc eclairs, mini cannolis, different types of brownie cakes squares, more items than I can mention, and all made there and the cupcakes are huge, I suppose that's a reasonable price. Very friendly staff. The carrot ginger cupcake is really good, but definitely be prepared to share it with another person. A little much " sugar" ! Oh yes they also make doggie treats. Lol.

Jessica Davis

Every cake we have ordered has exceeded our expectations! It's a simple ordering process and easy pickup. The lemon cake with raspberry filling is SO GOOD with buttercream

I used to enjoy this place however lately I've found that the cupcakes have been dry. They state that make them fresh. Also, my friend and I went here after they stated they had specials (first day of specials). We had to drive across town since the other store closed. After arriving, we waited 20 minutes in the drive-thru because the poor girl was so busy inside (with no help). She apologized and when we stated what we wanted, she said they were completely out. My friend saw an IG post and another customer said the same thing. Their excuse was a "Sorry-not-sorry" by saying "we are sorry HOWEVER we were closed for a week, you should have called, blah blah." I get you wanted to take off a week, good for you. Other people do not get that option so by saying you get a week off is RUDE. You are basically telling the disappointed customer, it is their fault that YOUR BUSINESS was out of cupcakes. Maybe if you made them fresh, they wouldn't be so dry and you would have them available in a few minutes. Do not promote something and not have it. Also, learn the "CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT" rule if you want more business. Bunch of YAHOOS!

I work at the Mattress Store next to it. Just got some a few minutes ago and had a truffle and it was amazing. Great taste. Just leaving me speachless.

Blair Gomez

Some of the best cupcakes I've ever eaten.

Simple bakery with the basic perfected from cookies to cupcakes. Custom cakes even better. Store had lots of natural light and is very clean. Has a small dining space to the side that doesn't distract from the main display area. Service is good with friendly, helpful staff

The cupcakes are amazing!! The cake is delicious!!


CornerStone Bakery has the best looking & best tasting cakes ever! I decided to order my 9 year old & 6 year old birthday cake from here this year because I wanted a fancy looking cake for their Birthday party. Their party was on a Saturday & I went in on a Thursday to order the cake thinking I might be out of luck because I did go in & try to order a large cake with extremely short notice. To my surprise the employees there were very helpful & so so nice! They walked me threw every step of the cake from the size to the lettering! When I ordered the cake on that Thursday & went Saturday afternoon to pick it up I was extremely shocked at how beautiful the cake actually was! Mind you I have only ever ordered Food Lion deli cakes so I was very excited about how beautiful my son's birthday cake really was & how big! Now let's talk about how delicious the cake was! IT WAS SOOOO GOOD! It was vanilla cake with buttercream icing (I never order buttercream icing because I usually don't like it) & strawberry cheesecake filling....yeah I know that sounds amazing well it WAS! The cake itself was so moist it's like a pleasure for the mouth you never want to go away. The buttercream icing was so smooth & velvety & the right amount of sweetness. Not that over powering sweetness that's to much you can only take one or two bites of but more like a enjoyable sweetness that you can eat & eat but never get sick of. Then the strawberry cheesecake filling was the perfect touch to the entire cake because it was layered about 4 or 5 time so every bite you got strawberry cheesecake filling. All of that ties the cake together in the most perfect way. I ate cake for breakfast for 5 days straight because it was that good. I will never order a grocery store cake again because of CornerStone & I have 4 children & a husband so I look forward to these cakes 4 to 5 times a year! Lucky me right?

JM Baker

Exceptional goodies, great service!

Harley Williams

delicious Boston cream cupcakes!

Peter Hart

In early May, my wife and I decided to check out the furniture stores in Hickory. We left early and had breakfast at Cornerstone Bakery. I take no pleasure in saying this, but it is probably the worst bakery I've ever eaten in. I ordered two cinnamon roles. They were uncooked and contained a miniscule amount of cinnamon; I essentially ate partially baked dough. My wife had a chocolate chip cookie and it had 7 chips in it total. We plan to go back to Hickory and check out furniture, but we expect the bakery to be closed by then given poor word of mouth. Avoid this place.

Marie Clay

Grandaughter wanted cupcakes Friday night so we stopped . I got a vanilla with chocolate buttercream, it was the worst cupcake ever. It was so dry and the icing was so hard. It had to have been in there a week. Threw it in the trash can after one bite.

Danielle Beaver

John Wilson


Luis Correa

Mindy Burnette

Stopped in to pick up a cake for someone and decided to try a couple of cupcakes. They were horrible. The cake tasted like it had been in the freezer for a long time, was not moist and soft and had no flavor. One cupcake was yellow buttercream and the other was supposed to be cake batter. They tasted the same. I wouldn't go back again.

George Harris

Stopped there yesterday got a blueberry cheesecake cupcake and a strawberry crumble both were gross! I would say cupcakes from Walmart taste better than this over priced bakery!!

kim sigmon

I ordered my wedding cake here. The cake looked amazing & of course was delicious. We had a lot of compliments on it!! Cake was delivered on time with no complications.

Tiffanie Tagner

Always wonderful quality and service!!

Chris Smith

Charles Greene

Great cake by the slice!

Gina Isaacs

Wonderful!Nice, helpful staff.

Erin Hamby

My friend and I went in today and bought a Nutella cupcake, a tiramisu slice and a couple of the red velvet cake bites. It was all delicious. The cake bites and cupcake were not dry at all, and the tiramisu was some of the best I’ve ever had. Everything had great flavor, and the establishment was clean, and the staff were kind.

Paul Michaux

Good cupcakes

Cassandra Clifford

I'm so happy I finally stopped in to try this bakery out! The service was excellent, and the variety of pastries was solid. You get high quality sweets for a very reasonable price, where the same thing would cost triple in a larger city and not be as good. Will definitely be going back for the macaroons and cake.

Madison Chapman

Edward Dant

This has always been our "Go To" Bakery and we've been going here for many years. I'll also mention how we've tried about everything they offer and the desserts are always wonderful. We also tried a cupcake from the winner of Cupcake Wars on TV "Happy Cakes" and we determined that Cornerstone is much better. Keep up the great work!!!

Al Smith

Unprofessional, rude, not worthy. Yea, it's just that bad! Anniversary cake ordered. Cake was not correct. No options. Take it or leave it. No options or compromises. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heather Holland

Scott Mosteller

Great Service. Needed a change to a cheesecake. They made it , no problem

Kimberly Huffman

Erin Hankins

Always great!!

Zack Phillips

The Moral Grey

The staff is very friendly and can help you decide on something from there diverse menu.

Sally Ballard

Gluten free is not really gluten free. I purchased a GF item and got so sick from it. Come to find out their cross contamination goes to a whole other level. They use utensils covered in regular flour for their GF items!!! They are not conscientious of allergies like they claim to be!!! DO NOT RISK IT!!!!! I was appalled by the managers customer service, he was arrogant and rude. If you want quality items that are clean and safe to eat and some good quality service save your time and go somewhere else!!!!!!! I give 1 star only because 0 is not an option.



Franken Tang

Oh yeah! best oatmeal raisin cookies around.

I have tasted cakes from here that were amazing, but when my family visited last week for cupcakes/treats, I wasn't impressed. The cake was dry, icing was hard, cheesecake tasted like basically cream cheese and nothing else.
