These are the top cake companies in Little Rock to get specialty cakes for your wedding, birthday, anniversary or any occasion that demands cake, and any occasion is better with cake.
When looking for a cake company for an elaborate cake, you want to come in with some specific ideas to give them something to start with. You also probably want to have a price range narrowed down (even in Arkansas, elaborate birthday and wedding cakes can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars). For a big event, you probably want to taste the cake too. The cake can look wonderful, but if it tastes bad, your guests will remember the cake for the wrong reasons.
The Blue Cake Company is one of the premier cake designers in Little Rock. Though they are a little pricey, their cakes taste delicious, are made from scratch with the finest ingredients and are works of art. The most beautiful cakes I've seen in Little Rock come from Blue Cake Company.
I have sampled a lot of cakes, and community bakery taste the best of all the cakes I've sampled. They make wedding and groomsman cakes along with birthday cakes.

Cakes by Sam designs unique birthday and wedding cakes. The designs range from simple cakes to very elaborate "Ace of Cakes" style cakes, and pricing varies accordingly.
Kroger, Sam's Club
For those on a budget, Kroger and Sam's Club actually make pretty tasty birthday cakes. They won't be decorated as fancy as something from a specialty bakery, but they do have several designs you can pick from. Of the two, Kroger probably has the better tasting cakes. I prefer the Kroger frosting.
There are Kroger stores all over Little Rock. The Sams Club is on Bowman.
Cold Stone Creamery, Baskin Robbins, TCBY
Baskin Robbins and TCBY do ice cream cakes and are both located in Little Rock, but I think Cold Stone's Ice Cream Cakes are markedly better. Cold Stone is more expensive. If you're treating a party full of 8 year olds, the fine taste may be wasted. I'd probably head to one of the other places.
