[Review] Not a big cupcake person… But these were amazing!
I am not a big cupcake person, but even I have to admit these were delicious. I bought them for a friend for her birthday and she loved them so much she’s getting a cake from them for her husband’s birthday. At least three of us agree that they were something special.
My client had his 71st first birthday coming up and I had NO idea what to get him until my mother-in-law suggested a treat of some kind. I typed “treat, Fullerton” into Google and up came Patty’s Cakes.
I went to their beautiful website and learned that it’s best that you call ahead for more than six cupcakes in an order, so I did.
The lady that answered that phone was very nice and said she’s have my 18 cupcake order ready within the hour. When I arrived I explained to the lady (turns out it was Patty herself – talk about service!) behind the counter that I was worried that showing up with 18 cupcakes might be weird. The bakers box was probably the same size as and the six cupcakes would be rolling around and look cheezy; There are exactly 9 people that work in my clients office and I didn’t want anyone to feel left out. She explained that they had a different sized box that had a cardboard insert in it, she showed it to me and the cupcakes looked like they were on a little stage!
The cupcakes were just gorgeous little delights, so I ordered an extra one for my mother-in-law and my husband too! Another lady came out when a customer came in and asked me if I wanted a ribbon on the box (at no extra charge – UNHEARD of!!) she put a cupcake themed ribbon on the big box and a dark blue ribbon on the 6 pack. As she was wrapping the smaller box she said she would bring it out when she finished as I loaded the other in my car. I was too fast and when I got back in I heard the other customer say that it was their first time. I looked at Patty and the other lady and explained that it was my first time too. They were surprised as I called in the order and seemed like I had been there before. (I am pretty shy and they both made me feel so comfortable and welcome I felt like I had been there before too!) Patty’s assistant took both my hands in her’s and looked me in the eye as she said “Welcome and thank you for choosing us to be a part of this special celebration”.
I can’t rave enough about this place and how much everyone LOVED the cupcakes. My client said he had never had better!
Thank you Patty, for making me look good and giving my client a taste of just how important he is to me!
I will be back because I never did get a cupcake for myself, too many choices!
Patty made our wedding cake. We went to several different bakeries, sampling and designing cakes. Patty’s Cakes was the most affordable, the most delicious, and the most flexible. We had a cake that each piece was half chocolate and half white cake with chocolate ganache between the layers. She even made a special carrot cake top layer just for us. We had a 3 tier cake with a sheet cake to feed our 150 guests and keep costs down. They delivered for a Sunday wedding, even though they are closed on Sundays. Also, we hate the taste of fondant so we choose her really tasty buttercream frosting.
The day of our wedding, I couldn’t believe how pretty our cake was! The delicious buttercream frosting was so smooth and was covered in sparkles. It still looked white but twinkled in the sun in a very classy way that my husband thought was really nice and not glittery or over the top. All of our guests really thought it was a nice touch on the cake.
We could not have been happier with the cake and working with Patty. We will go back for our anniversary cake, as well as cupcakes and for special occasions. I dislike store cupcakes (like Sprinkles), but her cupcakes taste just like mini cakes and have a moist texture. Delicious! Very good experience!
I have had these a couple times now and will be a frequent customer I am sure! They have great traditional flavors, as well as some specialty cupcakes that sound crazy enough to eat! My husband had the peanut butter pretzel one and said it just might be the best cupcake he ever had!
There customer service is bar none. I had an issue with one if my cupcakes making it home in one piece, and Phillip was most accommodating and replaced, not just that cupcake, but offered me two additional cupcakes as well! That s amazing service!
[Review] Variety of cupcakes for a surprise birthday!
These cupcakes were so moist and delicious. Totally awesome. My husband got all different varieties for my surprise Birthday Party. They were the best cupcakes I have ever had. The Bacon one’s were so delicious. I will never go anywhere else to get any cupcakes. You have to try them.
If you are a cupcake lover this is the place to go! I am really critical when it comes to my cupcakes. I look for a whipped frosting and a moist cupcake and this place created it! They don’t have a lot of flavors but if you ask for a certain flavor they will try there best to make it. And also the manager Patty is the most friendliest person on Earth! She is just so nice.
HANDS DOWN! this is the best cupcake place ever you will not regret it!
We have gotten several birthday cakes for our daughters, & they always are absolutely perfect. The cake is moist, the icing is perfect, not too rich or sweet. I can t eat most icing or frosting, but I always eat it on the cakes and cupcakes. We will continue to come here for years.
Cake Balls….that is all I have to say. One more thing..Red Velvet Cake Balls. I am not a dessert person and would rather save the stomach real estate for something other than pure sugar. I wish I had more room for this place though. What I don’t like about cupcakes in general is the overall lack of harmony between cake and frosting. Cake Balls have frosting all around so unless you have the mouth the size of a pigeon, there is a good chance you are getting both cake and frosting in one. It is like a Munchkin taken to the gourmet level.
My friend Jessie threw down the S’more ball as quickly as I did mine. I am not the biggest rich chocolate fan but I tried a bite of hers and It was also really good. It was more gooey than the Red Velvet and richer in flavor.
I am thinking about ordering an assortment for these for a birthday party next week for my aunt and am wondering how they will hold up overnight, as I have to leave before the bakery opens in order to get there on time. Maybe I can just pick up some the night before so they are as fresh as possible. I think my family will go crazy over these. Genetics I guess.
