Amazing cakes. Wonderful family. Loved this place since 1991❤ can't even count how many cakes I've bought from Gretchen

Brittani Baker

Ever since I was a little girl, my mom always bought my sisters and I birthday cakes from Gretchen. They were delicious and my mom was pleased with the service. Still to this day.

Melissa Walter

Gretchen's cakes made my wedding cake and my husband's groom cake. They were absolutely amazing. The cake is delicious and the decorations were exactly what we asked for. We could not have been happier with her work!

Gerriann Koch

They did my 2 year olds birthday cake and it was PERFECT!! SO friendly and so well priced. Love love love them!!!

Justin Rogers

First of all, great LOCAL people to conduct business with!! A LOT OF VALUE for the price! Although the aesthetics were not perfect, it was put together very nice and presentable. We had our daughters first birthday party and everyone was asking "OMG where'd you get the cake done?? Did you spend $250 on this huge cake?" When I tell them I spent $80 on the cake, everyone couldn't believe it!!! My family is not all big on cake, however, THIS CAKE WAS DELICIOUS!!!!!! (White cake very creamy and the strawberry cake was like none ive ever tasted.) I definitely recommend their cakes over Publix, Bi-Lo, etc. If you read this review and decide to give them a try, you will not be disappointed!

Awful! Drove far and early mid morning. Their shelves were empty. She said it was because they were closed the day before which is part of their weekly schedule. I had an entertainment coupon, buy one get one, and asked if they would …

Awesome service. They did a fantastic job on my daughters 16th birthday cake. I took a picture of a cake she liked in and they did an awesome job at making it. She loved it. I will use them for future cakes. Great family

Jennifer Talmadge

This is the ONLY place to go for cakes or treats! The cakes are exquisitely decorated...almost too gorgeous to eat...but you'll be glad you did. Every cake is absolutely delicious. Customer service with a smile, and you know you'll see the same friendly faces each time you visit!


The best lunch in the upstate. The cakes, pies and other deserts are to die for and you'll always leave with a full tummy and smile on your face. Family owned and run by people who truly care that your experience with them is a happy one, whether it be a simple such or elaborate wedding cake. They truly care and want to keep you as a satisfied customer.

They made us a cake for my son's birthday - he wanted a Paw Patrol character and not only was it well done, the cake was delicious.

Kevin Kelley

A, "Must Visit!"

Gretchen's supplied to food for our ribbon cutting yesterday and everything was fantastic. About 40 people attended and just about everyone asked where the food was from because they loved it and just had to go get their own. Could not be more pleased.

Christine Boyko

When my husband and I found out we were having a boy and had gretchens do the cake for our revealing. Gretched cakes will always be held deeply in my heart. I could feel the love that was put into making our gender reveal cake just as the love that was put into making our son. As my father in law cut into the cake ans seen blue,tears of joy and happiness rolled down everyone's face. Gretchens ABS cakes created and shared an unforgettable moment in my families life that day. Thank you

Gretchen's ABS Cakes designed and baked both my and my brother's wedding cakes and did an absolutely fabulous job! I highly recommend them to every bride I know! Gretchen's is also my family's go-to bakery for special occasion cakes and other goodies. The quality and consistency of their baked goods can't be beat! And I've always found the staff there to be so courteous, friendly, and professional. Gretchen herself is absolutely delightful and made the processes of selecting a wedding cake so enjoyable and stress-free! Rest assured, once you give them a try you will be going back time and time again!

Tori Thomason

Ruined wedding cake. My wedding colors were royal blue and lime green. She delivered a cake that was baby blue and hunter green. She had my telephone number but never apologized or compensated me for her error. I paid full price for the cake. Instead, she left an message for me with the restaurant reception host that the blue turned when she mixed with white icing. YEAH REALLY. That was here one and only chance with me.

Kenneth Sternberg

We love this place. And we love Gretchen.

Melanie Grooms

Gretchen's is absolutely wonderful. This business is locally owned and operated. Definitely an asset to Mauldin. Everything I have purchased (custom or in-store purchase) was carefully and made with pride. Utilize this establishment for all your bakery needs. I can also find all unique baking needs there, and if I can't find it in-store Heather Johnson will find it for me. They go out of their way to provide outstanding customer service. Thank you!

I have to give a huge shout out to Gretchen's for once again coming through with two beautiful and delicious cakes last night. We celebrated the life of our dear friend Stacy Ramey and the birthday of another great friend, Christy Sutton. Their cakes are always perfect and delicious but the heart, love and care that this family puts into everything they make is indescribable. Thank you, Gretchen's and I pray that your family and your business are richly blessed! Jeremy Wilkes

Lovely little shop with the prettiest cakes and sweetest lady ever running the place!


We buy all of our sweet treats from Gretchen's ABS Cakes! They make not only delicious cakes and sweets, but they are beautifully decorated. We have four children, all four birthdays within four weeks of each other. Gretchen's is our go-to for all four of our children's birthday cookie cakes and birthday cakes. They are accommodating and are wonderful people to work with. We won't buy our cakes from anywhere else! I can't recommend them enough!

Dee Ann Bailey

Always delicious & great to work with.

Chris Harrison

Gretchen did our daughters birthday cake it was fabulous!!! As pretty as it was delicious!!!!!

Lynn Sarmento

As a baker, I've been to Gretchen's MANY times for supplies, and have always found exactly what I need. Their cakes and food are scrumptious, and now that I've retired from cake making I send anyone who asks to them for their cake needs. :) Great bakers, decorators, cooks, and people. Perfect combo for a business.

Jenna Scott

Gretchen's did an excellent job with our wedding cake in April. We couldn't have asked for a better bakery. Gretchen was so kind and happy from the very first time we met and continued to be amazing throughout the entire process. Our guests raved about how beautiful and delicious the cake was! I can't recommend Gretchen's enough!

josh bishop

Lovely local family owned bakery! Awesome staff and very helpful.

Rick Grant

One of the best experience anyone can have shopping, no matter what you are looking for. The goods are some of the best you will find out there. This family is one of the friendliest and honest , trustworthy you will come in contact or deal with anywhere, anytime... period!!

Todd Glassman

Ashley Woolwine

William Hartsell

Sheila Wells

This is part of my friends family business. GREAT

Joy 01

The staff is very nice; however, the quality of product they provide is terrible. I was very disappointed with the cake I ordered for my boyfriend's birthday. The end result looked nothing like the several images I provided to the bakery. The lettering, color, and consistency was terrible and looked no better than if I were to make the cake myself. I am not one to be picky and critical; however, I really wanted the cake to be perfect and it was nothing short of unacceptable. I definitely will not be using their services in the future.

Jacki Stoller

Jamie Howell

I love this place! They do beautiful work, and everything tastes great. The staff is super friendly.

Tonya Wallace

Heather is always so helpful no matter if I'm ordering a cake or picking up supplies to make my own. They are always willing to bring my ideas to fruition and exceed my expectations. My mom even likes to stop in when she comes to visit. The Grounsell's always take time to share with their customers and make you feel like family especially if you stop by for lunch and the po' boys are awesome!!!

Amy Marie

Best cakes around! Superb customer service!

Christopher Settle

Gretchen did our wedding cake and cupcakes. Other than a miscommunication that was easily fixed, everything was beautiful and tasted amazing. Everyone at the reception would not stop talking about how good they were. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Best cake I've ever ordered! Gretchen took the time to sit down with me and listen to what I wanted and draw it out for me.

Delicious food from such sweet ladies!

I grew up with the Grounsells. They are an amazing family. Gretchen's ABS Cakes has really good cakes and other items. I've bought several cakes from there and loved them.

Met Gretchen at the Labor Day Bacon Festival a few years ago. I'm a Wedding Director and Officiant and we discussed events and cake. She gave me samples to try and they were delicious. Since that time, I have bought several cakes for my friends and family. This is a great local business ran by a Godly woman. Gretchen can and will help anyone with any budget!

We highly recommend!!
