What can I say...Beth was very knowledgeable and helpful regarding the design of the cake. She had it ready on time, and was very communicative throughout. Re: the cake itself, it was red velvet, with cream cheese layers, black buttercream with red and blue icing. AND IT WAS DELICIOUS. At a point, I was standing in front of it with a fork and going to town. Even my partner, who isn't a sweets person, LOVED it. The thing with Beth's baking, which I really dig, is that her baking style is more European. So it's not exorbitantly over-sweetened like American desserts typically are. Can't recommend highly enough, you won't be disappointed!

THANK YOU... The chocolate cake was delicious, we absolutely loved it. Appreciate the quick turnaround (day before) and to share that the chocolate mousse cake is absolutely the best chocolate cake we've ever had!! You'll be hearing from us again (will be back to try some of the other cake options). Also, appreciate the scheduled pick ups amongst this crazy time.

I didn't expect the cupcakes would be this good. She did an amazing job, and she surpassed my expectations. I can tell she put all her heart's into making this cupcakes, and I'm happy and thankful that I ordered from this place. Outstanding! Will order in the future! Highly recommend! God bless your bakery and you.

Our daughter in law had a Pride rainbow cake made for us, and it was SO beautiful and SO yummy. We took it on a camping trip for a friend's birthday and everyone was so impressed. We loved it and will happily order another someday

I happened to visit Beth for a cake tasting for my wedding in April, so I asked her if she'd be able to do birthday cakes for my classmates in time for next class. Might as well! Plus I was curious to try her coconut cake with passion fruit. The only request I gave her other than the messages on the cakes was to use CAL colors (GO BEARS!). The cakes not only looked perfect, they were also meticulously well-packed! And then the taste... those who tried the coconut/passion fruit one could be seen rolling their eyes back in pleasure It was just something else. The chocolate lovers who partook in the chocolate raspberry also gave wonderful reviews. (Personally, I had a little of each ). They weren't cloyingly sweet, very tasty, and the amount of frosting was just right. Everyone asked me where I got the cakes from and I am so happy everyone enjoyed them! Thank you, Beth!!

Beth created an amazing wedding cake for our daughter's wedding in April! After our tasting, our daughter and fiance' decided that Beth was the one. She worked with them on concept and design and created a beautiful and absolutely delicious cake!

My husband and I were looking for ages before we found Beth to make our wedding cake! From the time we met her for the tastings, we knew she was going to be the one to not only make our wedding cake, but every dessert for any celebration. Her flavors are absolutely unparalleled and she incorporated the designs of our wedding outfits into the various tiers of the cake. Our guests were enthralled by the look of the cake, as well as the freshness of the flavors. We didn't have any leftovers! Beth is incredibly detail oriented and a perfectionist. She delivered the cake to our reception location and set it up to be a real showstopper. I strongly recommend her services to anyone looking for the best celebration cake in the Bay Area!

Just had Beth create the dessert platters and birthday cake for my wife's 50th. A wonderful assortment of of bite size cheesecake, lemon tarts, and macaroons. The cake was a delicious sponge with fresh berries. All items were amazing and devoured. Do your next event a favor by hiring Beth.
