Veronica's cakes are AWESOME!!! The cake tasting experience was one to remember! I can't wait to have her cake again on my wedding day! Thanks Veronica for a wonderful and delicious cake tasting experience! Yay! My cake hunt is over!
Kevie was amazing to work with. She made a beautiful cake for my daughter’s wedding. I sent a picture of the cake we wanted and Kevie did it just as pictured. Even better, the cake was delicious and Kevie’s prices were so reasonable. Her cake was the best weddingcake I’ve ever tasted. It looked and tasted so good!! I highly recommend Kevie to anyone needing a beautiful, delicious cake for a special occasion.
I couldn’t had someone better to make my weddingcake. It’s the best weddingcake I have ever had! Wish I had ordered a bigger one!
Kevie was extremely responsive, detailed and professional. Thanks so much Kevie!
Sarah did a phenomenal job creating a beautiful and tasty weddingcake. My family and guests were commenting nonstop about Sarah’s cake and kept asking for more cake! The red velvet and Nutella flavors were to beyond tasty! Thank you Sarah!!

She is professional, sincere and she is baking the most delicious cakes. We feel so lucky to find her. I will add some pictures after wedding.
If you are looking to hire a person do not hire Maria. I unfortunately had to cancel my weddingcake two months prior to my wedding and she says she spent $340 of my $500 deposit on gold paint and flower topper. The crazy part is I told her that my color scheme was blue white and silver. The cake picture that I gave her had gold on it but we had agreed closer to the wedding date I would get her color swatches. Now she is refusing to refund me in full saying deposits with her are non refundable 30 days after deposit which she never mentioned. The icing on this cake she is refusing to return even the $160 she says is due back to me without me going to her attorneys office. I ended up having to cancel ten other vendors in May for a July wedding Maria takes the cake for the worst!!
We live in New Mexico and had our wedding in San Diego. Not only did she get exactly what we wanted when we described the cakes to her, but they were there in plenty of time and looked and tasted AMAZING. So good that we took the leftovers from the wedding and flew with it home to New Mexico! We finished every bite! Thank you so so much Kevie for the outstanding cakes. We will definitely be back for more every time we come back to SD!
Sarah did an excellent job on our cake and cupcakes for our wedding! They all looked wonderful & were so delicious! Sarah also was willing to work with our budget, which we really appreciated. If you want delicious and beautiful treats for your event, book Sarah!

Maria canceled on me out of nowhere 3 weeks before my wedding. This was after being in talks with her for more than 7 weeks on the details of the order AND after spending 4 hours of our Sunday driving an hour to her house in Temecula and an hour back from San Diego to do our cake tasting... And it wasn't just the time and energy that I put into making the terms of our agreement or even the stress that comes along with your 2-tiered weddingcake and 200 cupcake order being canceled on you with no merit 3 weeks before your wedding, it was truly the way that she acted and handled the situation, so selfishly and without any apology or remorse...
To be honest, it was the rudest, most unprofessional business e-mail that I have ever received. She basically told me that she decided to take a new client's order for my wedding day so she could no longer fulfill my order.
She offers you no contract or set-in-stone terms, and she basically jumps around on Thumbtack messaging to her advantage. In fact, she didn't even write down the flavors that we chose on the day of our tasting... One day, she suddenly decided to start hounding me about what flavors we chose that day saying she needed to know within 24 hours or it was going to be too late... Mind you, this was all done via Thumbtack.com messaging despite me asking her numerous times to please contact me on my personal e-mail since that is checked daily. Then after 18 hours, since I had not seen her messages or responded, her messages quickly turned threatening and she tried to change the prices that we had already agreed upon. The delivery charge was originally $50 then she hiked it up to $100 at the very end... She also added $100 charge to rent the cake stand at the very end and said "she forgot to mention it because we must have gotten so caught up at our tasting at her house". I had to continuously go back and screenshot things that she said in order to show her that our agreement was for this price and those circumstances yada yada since she would go back on her word so much.
I would never even want to have to take legal action against anyone, however, the way that she treated me and the way that she handled the situation was just absolutely appalling, and without any remorse.
All I want to do is to provide you with helpful feedback and let you know with all honesty what my experience was like with Maria. I would encourage you to go with someone who provides you with a formal contract with clearly stated terms and conditions that cannot be changed or altered along the way. This whole experience has been exhausting and heart-wrenching.
