Whoever invented cake balls is AMAZING!

First of all, whoever invented cakeballs needs to be given some sort of awesomeness award. I mean just the improved icing to cake ratio should be reason enough!

So a little bit of history, my first review of Patty’s years ago was just so so. It wasn’t great, it wasn’t horrible, just straddling that middle line.

Fast forward to yesterday, my friend’s baby shower where she had a platter of red velvet and smores? rocky road? cake balls as well as PB&J, and strawberry chocolate (?) mini cupcakes laid out amongst a bevy of other desserts. At the time, I didn’t know these had come from Patty’s, but they did look quite appetizing.

Upon approaching that table, the first thing I went for was the PB&J cupcake. I mean, you can’t go wrong with PB&J anything. Right at that first bite, my nod of approval was instantaneous. Wow, i wish these weren’t so mini-sized! Everything about it was just right.

Eventually, I got suckered into “going halfsies” on the red velvet cake ball which unfortunately, wasn’t too pronounced in “red velvety-ness” but still a worthy bite nonetheless. Generally I tend to shy away from overchocolatey pastries because they can be a bit too rich for my palate, but this particular one wasn’t overwhelmingly sweet. It had a bittersweetness to it which I appreciated.

Then it hit me, I still didn’t know which bakery these had originated and that’s just not proper! So earlier this morning, i asked my friend who then sent me a yelp link. I clicked on the link and was shocked to see “Update My Review”. I was surprised cause surely I’d remember cupcakes and cake balls like these. It wasn’t until I read my old review that I realized which bakery this was!

Wow, very much improved from my first Patty’s experience. I really was impressed and in awe even.

Huge hit for my cousins graduation!

I ordered two dozen mini cupcakes for my cousin’s high school graduation and it was a huge hit.

1. the mini cupcakes were perfect sizes for people to eat after the ceramony.
2. patty added cap decorations when I told her it was for a graduation.
3. they tasted amazing! super moist and rich but not too sweet!
4. cupcakes were ready to go as promised pick up time!
5. every staff was friendly and always smiling!

therefore, five stars!

our flavors were red velvet and chocolate.

I don’t feel bad about eating cupcakes from here!

Amazingly, I don’t feel bad about eating cupcakes from here!

They are technically made to order here. I think they only stuff the cupcakes and top them when someone orders. At least I sure hope so since they make you wait a while and there’s not cupcakes in the front or a display case (only for the cake balls).

Staff: friendly and helpful; one of them is kinda impatient though.

All the cupcakes are very airy and light, like a little delicious sweet cloud of yumminess! The cake itself does not feel dense or overbearing and the mousse is just a light touch of flavor added on.

My favorites: White Cake Ball, Banana Split, White with White, and Neopolitan.

Highly recommend ordering ahead if you can.

The Elvis cupcake is delicious!

My fav is the Elvis Cupcake! Delicious! The peanut butter mousse and banana cake makes a great concoction! Also tried the Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Fudge, Caramel, & Sea Salt Cupcake which was very good as well! Cupcakes are very soft and moist. I would definitely recommend this place!


The cupcakes were very good & the frosting decadent!

Amazing gluten free cupcakes!!!

Ever since I was diagnosed with Celiac disease I have been on a mission to find a really good cupcake. Patty’s Cakes fulfilled that mission! The chocolate gluten free cupcake with chocolate frosting exceeded my expectations! It was delicious, and the chocolate icing was the best I have ever tasted! Thank you Patty’s Cakes for giving me a little piece of gluten free heaven!!!

32 Standard flavors!

32 Standard flavors!
That’s more than Baskin Robbins :P

Sigh. The yelp offer half lied to me.
It was buy 3 get 1 free cupcakes :(

I only bought 1. The eclair, which had tons of flavor in the frosting and the cupcake was moist, but there was something missing from its neighbor, Hapa cupcakes. But they have a way better variety. WAYYY better.
They’re both way better than the ones you and I could make.

They do take some time to get your cupcake, which I may suspect is because they make the bottom pre-made and the top is where its made-to-order. The lady was also kind enough to include a B1G1 free card in the box of the one cupcake I had.

OH YEAH some cupcakes are GLUTEN FREE AS WELL~

The flavors you can get:
1.Chocolate with Chocolate Fudge
2. Chocolate with Chocolate Mousse
3. Chocolate with Chocolate Chip Mousse
4. Chocolate with Mint Chip Mousse
5. Chocolate w/ Peanut Butter
6. Chocolate w/ Strawberry Mousse
7. Chocolate with vanilla mousse
8. chocolate with coconut

White based
9. w/ choco fudge
10. w/chocolate mousse
11. with chocoalte chip mousse
12 with chocolate mint chip mousse
13. w/ Peanut Butter
14. w/ Strawberry Mousse
15. with vanilla mousse
16. with coconut

17. Red Velvet w/ Chocolate Chip Mousse
18. Red Velvet w/ Cream Cheese Mousse
19 Banana w/ vanilla Cream
20. The Elvis
21. Banana Split
22. Lemon Drop

Professional & very friendly staff

Best cupcakes ever!! I ordered cupcakes here for my engagement party, and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Professional & very friendly staff. I’m a sucker for anything lemon, and their *lemon drop* cupcake was Delish!!! They nailed it by adding an old school lemon head in the center. Very cute addition. You will not be disappointed.

Extraordinary experience!

This is way overdue and still wanted to share my experience with Patty and her creations. My now husband Jose and I got married May 24th, 2014. It truly was the wedding that we always wanted and more so with Patty’s awesome work. The whole experience was extraordinary and have nothing but great comments for her delicious cake great customer service. Before I found Patty, my husband and I went to several cake tastings in the OC area. Some were good but not the best. When we had a cake tasting with Patty, I could tell right away that she is such a sweet lady but most importantly, it was obvious that she had been in business for many years because of all of her great suggestions. It also helped that the price of the cake was right on budget! When my husband tried the cake (i have to add that he is very picky when it comes to sweets), he loved it and we knew that we had to hire Patty to make our fun and delicious cake. Like she promised, all the cake was gone after the wedding, which we have seen that in other weddings, the cake is wasted. Not ours! After the wedding, the cake was one of the things people would talk about. It was such a hit! Our flavors were, half chocolate, half lemon with a strawberry mousse and raspberry sauce. Truly delicious!

Almost 200 cupcakes at my wedding!

Everything looked amazing and we got so many compliments on our cupcakes! Our guests enjoyed the various flavors (The Butter Pecan went pretty quickly in the night) and my husband and I had The Elvis made into a small 6inch cake for just the two of us! Thank you Patty’s Cakes!

Exceptional serviced bakery!

We had our wedding cake made here and had exceptional service from start to finish. We spoke with a couple of the employees our first time here, then we spoke with Patty (the owner) on a seperate occasion. Our cake turned out perfect and Patty personally delivered it to our wedding. Very professional company and they do amazing work

Fatty Friday nights!!!

It takes a lot of willpower to drive past this place and not pop in. But for my waistline’s sake I do it. On one fatty friday night, the bf and I went here for the first time. We got the butter pecan and chocolate salted caramel cupcakes. Delectable flavors but most importantly, moist moist moist!!!

Ordered about a million mini cupcakes!

We ordered about a million mini cupcakes for our wedding, many of them Gluten Free. The cupcakes were fan-FREAKING-tastic. We ordered more than we thought we’d need at Patty’s urging, because there were so many kids at our wedding…. Patty reminded us that kids tend to bite off the frosting, ditch the rest, and grab another. We ended up having very little left over except for compliments and a craving for more of her cupcakes. One month later and we were back for a birthday order. Patty and her staff were professional and helpful, the cupcakes were ready on time for our planner to pick up, and they even went to the extra trouble of putting a tiny GF flag on EVERY mini cupcake that was Gluten Free. So much appreciated. Thank you, Patty!

Gluten free cupcakes!!!

Found Patty’s Cakes by searching for a nearby bakery with gluten-free cupcakes for our daughter’s 2nd birthday. We got her a vanilla cupcake with strawberry frosting, and she LOVED it. She’s not really a sugary frosting type of kid, and Patty’s Cakes knows how to make delicious “just right” frosting. My wife and I sampled a bunch of others too. My fav was the mint chocolate chip, hers was the lemon. 4 stars only because the cake portion of the cupcake was good, but not off-the-charts great like we’ve had at just a couple other cupcake specialty shops. Great customer service, good buying experience, we will definitely be coming back.

First time customer!

This is not just a cupcake shop, it is THEE cupcake shop! Yesterday I had the grand opportunity to experience it for the first time! The shop was beautiful and the staff members were extremely friendly! I ordered a Chocolate Caramel Salty and oh my goodness… It was BEYOND AMAZING. The Chocolate Caramel Salty was a super moist chocolate cupcake with a dab of buttercream frosting in the center topped with a generous amount of thickly piped chocolate fudge icing drizzled with a heaping tablespoon of delicious salted caramel. YUM! I was completely blown away by each bite consumed! I will most definitely be returning soon! Thank you Patty for sharing your lovely baked goods with dessert lovers like me! :)

Matching colors for my wedding

I ordered my wedding cake from Patty’s cakes. I had lemon and white cake. Patty even made the lemon flavor purple to match my wedding colors! It was amazing. Even though my day flew and I barely got to eat any of this amazing cake, all my guests raved about how delicious and moist the cake was and the purple lemon was a pleasant surprise!

Patty and her staff are so easy to work with! She makes sure you get EXACTLY what you want on your special day. It is all about YOU! Her staff showed up right on time and set it up with ease and no stress! I would definitely recommend Patty and Patty’s Cakes for any occasion!

THANK YOU PATTY!!

LOVED my wedding cake so much!

LOVED my wedding cake so much! From the design to the flavor…it was perfection. We ended up choosing the lemon cake with Bavarian cream and raspberry filling (their “Razzle” cupcake if you ever want to drop in a try it). AMAZING. When I used to think lemon cake…I words that would come to mind were “tart” or “too sweet”….but no, Patty’s was light and delightful. The guests loved it and one of them even told me they had 4 slices!

Philip made the whole process easy and smooth. From cake tasting and communicating with me regarding any details….we had no problems. I decided to have fresh flowers to decorate my cake and Patty made it so beautiful. Everything I imagined and more. And prices were much reasonable than the other bakery I inquired about :)

Thank you Patty and Philip for making the process so easy and making our wedding cake so beautiful and DELICIOUS! (BTW–got a lemon cake ball when I dropped off my cake stands and it was delish! I’ll be back whenever I’m in the area!)

Many choices of cupcakes!!!

I’ve driven by dozens of times and finally stopped in to check it out. I was expecting to see rows and rows of cupcakes but instead some small, ball-shaped cakes are displayed, some wedding cakes and shelves of decorative items. The sales lady showed me how to order (from a large menu on the wall behind the counter). There are many choices but my favorite flavor (from another cupcake place) wasn’t on the menu. I asked the sales lady, ” Do you have something similar to a Strawberry Lemonade flavor?” She could have just politely said “no sorry we don’t”. Instead, to my surprise, she said ” We can make something like that for you!” I said, “Right now?” she said “Yes!”. I’m very happy because I’m sure she isn’t the owner here, she didn’t have to do this, but she went beyond her way just trying to accommodate the customer. For this alone, I’d give the place a “yay!

The reason I give 4 stars is because the decorations on the cupcakes can be a little more attractive, creative, colorful…etc. All the cream is piped the same way with a little sugar sprinkles on top. I’ve had much more creatively decorated ones, so it’s a little boring here. Another reason is that, the cupcakes, although very fresh, has just a little too much cream. The cream is very light, but it’s almost 2 inches tall, so it feels like toppling over from the cupcake (heavier top than bottom). It’s true that I’d rather have more cream than not enough, but still, I had to remove a little cream for the balance in tastes otherwise it’s an overkill for me.

I will definitely return though when I drive by in the future. They are the freshest cupcakes I’ve ever had by no means.

11 months in advanced!

Preparations for our wedding started 11 months in advance, and even though we had less than 100 guests we wanted to honor each one of them and create a memorable event. We hired a local cake vendor, and one month before our wedding she canceled on us because of a family trip. We then rushed to visit several other bakeries with some not passing our taste test and others not capable to create the design we wanted. Most could not accommodate us on short notice until we finally read the reviews about Patty’s cakes in Fullerton Ca.
We were welcomed by Phillip (Patty’s son) and he immediately understood our needs. The tasting was fabulous and very thorough. Their signature icing is like a delicate mousse with the perfect texture. The design choices and extra custom work fit perfectly for what we were looking for and all on short notice and at very reasonable price. Phillip told us the cake will be made same day to insure it tasted and looked fresh. The combinations we picked were mouthwatering and Phillip helped us all the way to make sure everything would be exactly as we were planning. The delivery fee was very reasonable and the cake showed up on time for our florist to add the fresh flowers. Our guests asked for seconds and the cake was the sweet touch of our sweetest day :)
PS: A full month after the wedding our guests are still commenting on how much they enjoyed our special cake!

This place still has yet to disappoint!

The last time I wrote a review for Patty’s was 2011 so I figured it’s about time I write an update. This place still has yet to disappoint! I have been to Patty’s multiple times over the last three years for cupcakes, cake balls and custom cake orders. I have worked with Philip and Bethany on multiple occasions, both of which are incredibly pleasant. The only time Patty’s was unavailable to take an order for me was my son’s 4th birthday, which was really my fault considering I tried to order the cake two weeks in advance of the party. My tips – 1) place your custom cake order at least 4-6 weeks in advance because Patty’s is just that popular! 2) Bring a copy of your party invitation and give it to Patty. I have given artistic freedom to Patty for every one of my cakes based on the invitation I gave her and she has NEVER disappointed!

My mother-in-law and I just placed another custom cake order this morning for my baby shower in 6 weeks. As always, the place was crowded but our customer service was incredible. My son even got his 2 cake balls and of course, he was absolutely in love! Thank you, Patty’s!

Amazing cake balls and cupcakes!

Our favorite so far is the Neopolitan and Red Velvet.  I do have one gripe with their customer service. One day we called about 10 minutes before closing letting them know we were 10 away from arriving per the GPS and they said they couldn’t guarantee they would still be open, what’s up with that?

Nephew’s first birthday cake!

I ordered a cake for my nephew’s 1st birthday and cake is my favorite dessert, so I’m very picky. There was a lovely young woman who helped me come up with ideas to decorate the cake and when I went to go pick it up, the cake was EXACTLY how she had said it would be. I heard so many good compliments from our party guests. A lot of them said it was the best cake they ever had!

OC mining company wedding!

We were recommended to Patty’s Cakes through OC Mining Company. We also met with Patty at the Bridal Shower wonderful wonderful persona.
I met with Phillip for the tasting he was very informative, friendly and always available whether it’s via email or phone.The cupcakes were AMAZING I don’t usually eat frosting, but Patty’s Cakes frosting is delicious not as sweet and heavy just PERFECT!! It was hard to choose :( but we went with the Lemon Raspberry and Carrot Cake for top tier. They created exactly what I asked for which is a plus for me!!!! We will definitely be coming back :D

Absolutely love this place!!!

Love this place. :) Cupcakes are moist, delicious, and not overly sweet. The cake balls are amazing also! I’ve tried numerous flavors of both and have yet to be disappointed. I’ve tried cupcakes from other well known bakeries in the area, and these are definitely at the top of my list.

Cupcakes iced when you order!

Patty’s Cakes are the best cupcakes I’ve ever had, and I have had a lot of cupcakes! They are light and fluffy and the icing was more like whipped cream than that heavy icing on other cakes. I also appreciated that they ice them when you order, so I was able to get the Elvis without bacon on top. The cake balls are pretty tasty, too!

Most beautiful wedding cakes!

Patty listens to you and does what you request even more beautiful than you could imagine!

I cant offer enough thanks to Patty’s Cakes!

I can’t offer enough thanks for Patty’s Cakes. Patty’s Cakes was extremely friendly,
helpful, and did an amazing, amazing, amazing job on my wedding cake. They are gay
friendly. They worked within my budget and created such a beautiful 3 tiered white
wedding cake. I still can’t believe how beautifully designed it was. There was not a
piece left, the entire guest ate the entire cake and raved about it. Hats off on doing
a wedding cake of my dreams. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my
heart.

The perfect vendors!

I planned a 2 year engagement to give me enough time to find the perfect vendors for my special day and Patty’s cake was one of them. I got married a year ago and my guests are still talking about my cake today. I myself am not a cake person. Never really cared for it but when I test tasted Patty’s cake OMG it was de-lious! We couldn’t decide between 2 flavors because it was that good. So they were so nice and said they would do the 2 flavors together so that each guest would have a little bit of chocolate and red velvet in one slice! And the vison of my cake was EXACTLY what I had envisioned for my big day. I was so happy with the quality and service there. Patty and Phillip are the sweetest people ever too and make you super comfortable to tell them what you really want and expect. If you are the bride in looking for a cake this is the place to get it! You won’t be disappointed

Extra guests for my party!

I’ve ordered from Patty’s for work events, and this time, I found out I had extra guests for a going away party. I decided a few cupcakes would help finish the menu, but I have one member who is gluten intolerant. I was thrilled to find that Patty’s now has gluten free choices! I went with the new, and absolutely wonderful, éclair cupcakes and the chocolate fudge minis, all gluten free. We had three mini’s left when the party was done, everyone loved them. Thanks, Patty and team!

Patty’s Cakes and Desserts saved-the-day for our recent Wedding!

Patty’s Cakes and Desserts saved-the-day for our recent Wedding! Two months before our wedding, our
original baker told us that they wouldn’t be able to provide the red velvet cake as they’d promised. I
knew that my fiance really wanted the red velvet and since deep red was one of our wedding colors, I was
determined to find it at an affordable price. We searched online and found all of the amazing reviews
about Patty’s Cake’s on here, and booked an appt. with Patty’s for approx. 1.5 months before our wedding
date (03/29/14). We were lucky enough that they still had the ability to accommodate us for that date
with such short notice. We met with Patty and instantly clicked with her- Patty is such a warm,
friendly, creative, helpful business owner- somewhat rare to find such a genuine desire to make the
customers happy. Patty and her staff were amazing at turning our dream wedding cake into a reality, and
she even provided us with several options to keep it within our budget. The tasting of the wedding
cakes, frosting, and fillings was amazing too! We wanted to find a way to have both the chocolate cake
and the red velvet, and since each tier of the cake has two layers with filling in between them
(brilliant!) Patty came up with the idea to have one layer chocolate and one layer red velvet, and we
chose the bavarian cream for the filling- soooo delicious! We also had her light white/ivory icing and
our guests raved that this was the best and most beautiful wedding cake they’d ever had! Patty even
provided a “take home” box for our top tier. :-) Thank you so much Patty and Patty’s crew. I have
already ordered cupcakes from Patty’s since our March 29th wedding, and we plan to use Patty’s for
future cakes as well! (ps- I’d post pictures of the cake on here, but I don’t know how to yet, as this
is my first Yelp review. I wanted to make sure to share my great experience for other Brides out there
and other cake connoisseurs, haha)
All Our Best,

Something for everyone!!!

Something for everyone, but not easy to find. Way better gluten free cupcake than the gluten free only
bakeries,many gf options along with regular flavors. They don’t have a display of cupcakes because they
frost the cake as you order it, which makes it fresh, but confusing for a first timer. There is a sign
that explains all this, way up on the wall. So look up! You are about to have the best cupcake in
Orange County.
