Chef Rocco was very professional to work with, came up with a creative menu suggestions and most importantly, the food he made and served was delicious. He even made an awesome carrot cake for dessert! In addition, there was no mess to clean up afterwards. Thank you Chef Rocco!
Jennifer cleaned my house within an inch of its life. She cleaned it more thoroughly than it has ever been cleaned in the 13 years I’ve lived here. I told her that I was having a party for my daughter’s 16th birthday and she made this place shine. She rearranged furniture, she decorated, she put up lights outside, and she made the most amazingly beautiful cake. I can’t wait to work with her again.
My husband and I hired Monica to cater our intimate Big Sur wedding. From the very beginning, Monica was extremely attentive and accommodating. I had some pretty specific requests and she never once said no. I also made changes every week which also didn't throw her off. She responded to all of my emails promptly despite me not always reciprocating. On the day of the wedding my cake had a pretty bad mishap on the trip down to Big Sur in my parents vehicle. I have no idea how Monica fixed it but it looked like nothing had ever happened! Keep in mind the Monica did NOT Bake this cake, nor did we have other desserts at our wedding. Somehow, she managed to whip up some frosting that looked identical to the frosting on the cake and she brought it back to life. She seriously saved the day! The food was out of this world. We had a shrimp appetizer that I could NOT stop eating it was sooo good. She made a specific pasta dish that was not on here menu for us and it was perfect! The salmon was cooked perfects and I think the chicken was the best I ever had. The servers she brought along were so nice and they did everything to the point where I didn't even notice they were there. Choosing Monica as our caterer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. We don't live in California but if we did we would use ever excuse to have her cater all of our events!
Gaby was great! I put in an order for a wedding cake for tomorrow because Thumbtack didn't have a birthday cake option, and didn't have same day option, but I clearly stated "need a birthday cake TODAY." (previously set up deal fell through). She came through with flying colors! She did it for a great price and drove to the party and delivered the cake herself, without charging a delivery fee. I tipped her extra for that and you will want to do the same. Annoying that Thumbtack doesn't allow for picture upload on reviews.

I just had a lovely Christmas dinner party at our home for 10 couples. Nicolas cooked for us and it was amazing. He spent the entire afternoon at our home preparing dinner while we were decorating and putting the final touches on things. It was as if an old friend was in town helping us prepare, we listened to music, sang and laughed. When our guests arrived they were wow'd at the thought of having a chef come and cook. This was our first time at having someone come into our home and prepare a meal and we would definately do this again. Nicolas was spectaular and I would recommend him to anyone!
Anita Starr from A Starr Events will be the best part of your wedding planning experience. She is professional, kind, and highly experienced in event planning and flower design. If you are looking for ideas, she has so many reference pictures and website suggestions for your every need. If you already have a clear idea of what you want, she executes your vision perfectly. She is highly organized and will keep you on track with what you should be organizing for your wedding day. The day of the wedding, everything went off without any problems. Somehow the payment for our musician had been misplaced by one of my bridesmaids and Anita paid him with her own personal account. I was so embarrassed that she had to do this, but it just shows how committed she is to making your day go off without a hitch. During our planning process she went through every detail meticulously and everything was placed exactly where we had discussed. Anita was also my florist and I cannot express how gorgeous the arrangements turned out! All of my guests were fighting at the end of the night to take the arrangements home. I had a vision for my arrangements and decor greenery and Anita brought it to life even more beautifully than the inspiration photos. Hiring A Starr events was the best decision I made during my wedding planning process. Where I needed inspiration and ideas, Anita was there providing beautiful suggestions that met my theme and vision perfectly. Where I needed someone to execute my exact vision, Anita went above and beyond my expectations. Whether you are a bride/groom looking for a fountain of suggestions or you are looking for a disciplined professional to execute your vision to the very last detail, Anita Starr is your perfect coordinator. Do not miss out on the opportunity to work with her and her staff--I cannot recommend her enough!!
I ordered 2 dozens of puffy cakes for an event at the office. Communication with Marie was very smooth, she was super professional and able to accommodate my requests. The order was delivered timely and the puffy cakes were delicious. I'd hired her again in the future and I'll totally recommend you do the same.
Sweet Stuff Cake Shop did a small wedding cake for me in August 2015. Annette was easy to work with and delivery went without a hitch. The cake was really good and looked beautiful.
For my wedding of 190 people, I needed a LOT of cupcakes and a small cake for my husband and I to cut. When I met with Susan, she had so many ideas that I would never have thought of on my own! She was able to take a piece of a bridesmaid dress and match the frosting to it! For our small cake, she ombred the frosting to give it an amazing look! It wasn't just a simple cake with colored frosting, I can't imagine the time it took to get the ombre to look so perfect. She came on time to the wedding and set everything up, she used flowers from the florist to decorate the cake on my request. Obviously, everyone absolutely loved the cupcakes. They all told me how delicious they were. So, they not only looked pretty, they tasted amazing as well. Susan was so sweet and kind, she listened to everything I had to say and came up with multiple ideas of what I could do to go with my color scheme and idea of my wedding. I could not have asked for a better person to handle my wedding cake and cupcakes.
I met the owner/cake designer of the Wild Orchard-Specialty Cake and Design through a local bridal show in San Francisco. She is very responsive in the whole process, from initial consultation and tasting appointment to my late decision (less than a week before the wedding) of adding mini wedding desserts for my special day. She communicates efficiently and professionally during the planning process to ensure all my special requests have been met. We like that this vendor is flexible on creating customized cake flavor based on my preferred ingredients and elements for a wedding cake. Both the wedding cake and mini desserts (macaroons and mini fruit tartlets) were great in texture, flavor profiles were unique without being overly sweet. We did not really research on the average pricing for wedding cake during the planning process, but we appreciated that the owner gave us suggestion on how to lower the total cost. We had a total guest count of 200 at the end. As an alternative, the owner suggested to have a smaller three-tier wedding cake that served 100, and supplemental sheet cakes that served 100. Based on the quality of services, responsiveness, flexibility of Wild Orchard-Specialty Cake and Design, I would recommend this vendor to a friend.
I had Just Bakecause do our wedding cake and it was amazing! She is so easy to work with, even when I changed my mind hundreds of times! The results far exceeded my expectations and would absolutely recommend her! Additionally, she gave great tips on what to use and gave some great ideas! I will be using her in the future whenever I need a cake or really, anything sweet :)
Allie is beyond amazing. She is super creative and designed exactly what I wanted. Sometimes with these awesome cakes you think they look great but will they taste good? This cake went above and beyond all of my expectations, moist and delicious. I will def be ordering a cake from her again.
