    Jaime decorated a cake for my sister's wedding, September 26th 2013. My sister and her husband had a unique concept for their cake. They asked to have a mold of their faces made as a topper. We sent pictures of both bride and groom to Jaime, and she did alert them that this was something she had never done before. When the cake was delivered unfortunately I was not sought out to review the cake with Jaime. My sister was unhappy with their faces and they were a far resemblance of them both. I appreciated Jaime's honesty with her fair warning of inexperience with facial sculpting but, wished she would have sent a picture of the mold before attaching to the cake or at least sought me out before leaving. We prepaid an extra $100 for the custom topper. She had also promised to make large flowers to attach to the side of the 3 tier cake free of charge, but they were missing/not included. The cake was delicious, the miniature daisies were beautiful, and the coloring was perfect. My critique would be lack of communication and follow through but, Jaime was lovely and professional at our first and only meeting. Hopefully, this could be a learning experience for her and her business, it certainly was for us.

    I can not begin to say enough good things about Jamie. Her beautiful family and personality makes the whole process of getting your cake an absolute joy. Let's not forget that she makes the most delicious, beautiful cakes anyone could ask for. Thank you Jamie!!

    Jaime provided our wedding & groom's cakes for our 8/9/14 wedding. She did a fantastic job in making fully gluten-free, nut-free cakes that all of our guests enjoyed (and they didn't even know it was gluten-free!). She did, however, not produce the correct decoration on the groom's cake. Right idea, wrong final product. But Jaime provides small cakes at the time of the one year anniversary to her wedding clients (so we don't have to save that top tier and get a fresh one!) and we are looking forward to getting that small cake next year. Very sweet, but delicious!

    Jaime is a nice person, however her business has gone to her head. I ordered a custom cake from her for a birthday. I ordered a small cake that was worth maybe one fourth the price she really charged me. She plays favorites. She does not treat all customers consistently or alike. She demanded that I must pay a minimum 150.00 dollars for a cake, no matter how small. She claimed that that was her minimum price to do a cake. Okay, I went along, because I really needed a cake and other businesses requested more notice. So I was in a bind. I paid her up front, as she also demanded. I had several specified exactly what I wanted. Nothing complex. Rather simple design. However, when I got the cake, I could see that it had been carelessly decorated, as if I was just a run-of-the-mill nobody and that she had rather I ordered a bigger cake to make it worth her while. Sad part is that I had paid this I ungreatful woman, Jaime, for a BIGGER cake! Then, a week later, I read another review in which she had made a cake for someone else for only 65.00 dollars! Seriously?! Jaimecakes are not that great. Read all the Yelp reviews with caution. Most of those Yelp reviews are fake, just like ALL the "glowing" reviews here are fKe ones posted by her friends and family.

    We honestly have no idea who this person is. We have never had a customer named Kath D. We know this is a fake review by someone determined to hurt our business reputation. Please read all our other reviews as you will see there is something clearly wrong with this person's allegations and intentions.

    Outstanding is an understatement - Jaime made our wedding cupcakes and they were amazing, gorgeous, incredible and delicious beyond belief. And they were vegan. Vegan, I say! Moist, and delicious - the omnivores didn't know what hit them! I can't recommend JaimeCakes enough! See you next year for our first anniversary party - if I don't invent a party excuse before then just to order from you again ;-) THANK YOU!!

    Jaime was absolutely amazing! She made an absolutely beautiful wedding cake for my husband and I. We met for our tasting and she brought a wide variety of cake/frosting combos for us to try. Once we picked our cake flavors, I showed her my ideas for the cake and we worked together to create the perfect cake for our wedding. When I saw it in person, it was beyond my expectations, absolutely everything I expected and more. I couldn't have been happier!

    Jaime was simply amazing. Our wedding was EXACTLY what we wanted. It was beautiful and delicious! We found her through her Yelp reviews and were not disappointed at all. From the first email to dropping off our rental cake stand, working with Jaime was such a joy. She is easy-going as well as highly professional. She responded promptly and pleasantly to all of my initial questions and worked with us for the tasting schedule. When we first met for the tasting, it was like meeting up with friend rather than a vendor. Other bakeries seem to think their tasting responsibilities stop at providing the samples, but Jaime went above and beyond. While we were busy stuffing our faces with yummy cake, she took notes and asked questions that ultimately helped with our final decision. Oh my goodness that was so helpful because otherwise we would have been completely lost with all of the goodness we sampled. Oh and the variety of cake and filling flavors is amazing! So many other bakeries only offer the usual chocolate or white cake with similar filling. We ended up with lemon cake with raspberry mousse for two layers and Irish whiskey and chocolate for the top layer. It sounds weird but is delicious! The design process was so easy. I already had a clear idea of what I wanted, and Jaime understood my vision immediately. She was excited about my ideas and provided valuable input and knowledge to get us to the final product. Our venue was far south of Jaime's area, but she never even hinted at any bother about it. She remained cheerful about it even after we changed our date and time to a Sunday morning! Having to change a wedding date is stressful enough, but having a vendor like Jaime made it much less painful. We cannot wait to have her make us a cake again - she was THAT good. We totally recommend Jaime to anyone who needs a special cake for their event.

    Although I am a healthcare professional I was shocked at the high prices of the wedding cakes at most bakeries. I was so pleased that I found Jaime Cakes on Thumbtack. They made it possible to get the most perfect delicious wedding cake at a very affordable price. Every one that attended gave compliment to the beauty of the cake and later how delicious it was. Thank you Jaime Cakes for making this part of my wedding perfect. Gloria Angeles, CRNA MS

    Jamie did an amazing job on our wedding cake! It was so beautiful and tasted great! Our friends and family aren't really big on fondant but her fondant melts in your mouth and actually tastes really good. I love Jamie's design of my wedding cake. I drew a picture and she made my dream cake come to life. We are booking her formy daughter's birthday cake now! If you book her you won't be! sorry

    Jaime is a wonderful talented pastry chef. She has excellent communication and was a treat to deal with. Unfortunately our wedding cake arrived less refined than we had imagined. The colors and vision were not executed as hoped. Also we selected rich Whiskey cake with the Tres Leche and cappuccino cream however the taste of the cake was overwhelmingly lemon. Although Jaime is 100% professional and personably we were slightly disappointed with the quality of the results.

    We asked Jaime to recreate a two-tiered baptism cake that I fell in love with on Pinterest. She replied right away that she could, and was very accomadating to all my requests. She did an amazing job. The cake was beautiful and received many compliments! Not only was it impressive to look at, but it was also so moist, rich and delicious. The quality and value you receive with Jaime go far beyond other bakeries I've used in the past. We will definitely use JaimeCakes again!

    I am a huge cake fiend so the search for the perfect baker to make my graduation cake was quite extensive and on par with what some people do for their weddings. After meeting with several notable bakeries throughout the valley, I selected Jaimecakes as I found her to be the most personable, professional and reasonable in all other aspects. She brought great ideas to what I already envisioned and she had a real "can do" attitude when other bakeries told me something wasn't possible or just couldn't do what I wanted. Jaime went above and beyond to make sure I had the cake I wanted. She even agreed to dye my favorite red velvet cake pink to match the color of the cake decor. After meeting with her to go over ideas, pricing, etc. I got to try some of her cake flavors and they were delicious. I ended up ordering a single tier, three layer red (pink) velvet cake with Bavarian cream along with chocolate and vanilla mini cupcakes for my graduation party. She delivered them to my home and they came out better than I'd envisioned. They were so cute and tasted amazing! All of my guests at my party were raving about the look and taste of the cake and cupcakes and were asking for Jaime's info. The red velvet cake was moist and flavorful. The chocolate frosting and cupcakes were to die for! Even her fondant which I'm not normally a fan of, tastes good because she layered it with cream cheese frosting. As I mentioned, I'm a major cake enthusiast and I know good cake when I see it (and taste it!) You will not be disappointed in using Jaime for all your cake needs and I know I can't wait until the next event when I can use her.

    I had the most terrific, fun and loving experience with Jaime Lavallee. I love! Love! Love! Jaime Cakes! Yay! First of all Jaime put my mind at ease when I was all frantic running around trying to find the best bakery for my 40th birthday. I'm so glad I lucked up and found this lady's business because she is the BEST!!! describing her business I will say: Trustworthy, reliable, definitely pay attention to detail, always prompt. There is nothing Jaime can't do for your special cake day. Will I go back for such a lovely experience: ABSOLUTELY!!!
  • Armando R. Jan 2, 2013
    Jamie did a phenomenal job on my mother’s 60th Birthday cake. We described some ideas we wanted for décor and gave her a copy of the invitation to utilize and she surpassed all expectations. Jamie is very prompt in corresponding to phone calls/emails and to top it off the cake was delicious, our guests went back for seconds and we had no leftovers! I would also recommend having Jamie deliver and setup, the additional cost is money well spent and a great peace of mind. I would highly recommend Jamie for all your cake needs. You will not be disappointed.

    Jamie was so easy to work with. She created cupcakes and cake pops for my son's Little Einstein birthday. She had wonderful suggestions for the designs and flavors. The Little Einstein rocket cake pops were a huge hit with the kids and adults. Her cupcakes were creatively designed, as well, and delicious. The frosting was the best I've ever tasted. It's very hard to find a bakery that takes the time to provide quality desserts and gives 100% effort to make a person happy with the final design. Thanks Jamie, we were very happy with your desserts! We can't wait to order from you again!

    Jaime was a pleasure to work with. Honestly, I was a bit skeptical at first because not a month before I had worked with a bakery that ruined my grandmother's 75th birthday cake. When I met Jaime she was very professional and not only had references on hand, but also was very open to my ideas. I was throwing a surprise commissioning party for my husband who is in the Air Force and I wanted a special cake. She kept me updated the entire time and hand delivered my custom cake (an Air Force Officer cover) as well as some amazing cupcakes. Everyone loved the cake- they didn't even realize it was a cake because it looked so real! Not only did it look good, but it tasted even better. And my cupcakes were perfect for adults: Jack Daniel's and Irish Whiskey. Yum. It was a pleasure working with her and I would highly recommend her for any event you might have. No suggestions for an improved experience. Everything was perfect.

    I needed a cake for a birthday and Jaime put together a beautiful cake of a snare drum. Yamaha logo, colors, the works! It was a fantastic cake! Not only did it look good, but it tasted amazing too! You can tell the heart, time and effort that was put into this cake by Jaime. With that, the cake came out that much better than I had even imagined. I would definitely recommend Jaime for all of your cake and pastry needs. She will deliver a beautiful work of art!

    I wanted to get a cake for my very dear friend Ashleigh for a recent achievement in her life I thought we should celebrate. It was a bit short notice, but was very fortunate to have been referred to JamieCakes, where I can honestly say my expectations were blown away! I received wonderful, professional, and extremely personal service, that was way beyond anything I had hoped for. Since I am a bit of a novice when it comes to baked treats, Jamie helped me with ideas and suggestions, and together we decided on a beautiful personal design for a cake that I could never have come up with on my own. The cake was ready the very next day, and I was astonished by the look and the quality that JamieCakes delivered. I could go on and on about the service, but my true satisfaction was on how great the cake tasted! Easily the best cake I have ever had! I now find myself looking for excuses to order more cakes from JamieCakes. I couldn't give a higher recommendation!
