[Review] Don’t let the slightly scuzzy strip mall location put you off
Don’t let the slightly scuzzy strip mall location put you off … the little bakery that is almost hidden around the corner offers some seriously tasty cupcakes … yeah, they’re a little on the pricey side, but they taste like they use “real” fresh ingredients — not all nasty and “chemical” like others I’ve tried … the Lemon Razzle one is great, but our hands-down fave is the Butter Pecan … yummy! Totally worth checking out :
I ordered a bunch of mini cupcakes to share with family and friends for my college graduation party. We got five different flavors, and they were a HUGE hit. Everyone absolutely loved them! All the cupcakes were super flavorful and amazingly moist. Service was also great so we had no issues at all putting in our order and picking up the little cupcakes the day of. Here are the cupcakes we got: – The Elvis – My personal favorite. I LOVE the banana cake and how it blends in perfectly with the peanut butter frosting and the bacon bits. I may be a bit biased since I’m a bacon fanatic, but I think I ate about five of these on my own during my own party, haha. – Chocolate Caramel Salty – I think this was the crowd favorite, since the guests cleared out all the cupcakes less than an hour after we put them out. – Butter Pecan – I really liked the apple and cream cheese! – Red velvet and cream cheese mousse – An old favorite – Chocolate/Raspberry mousse Overall, I would highly recommend someone to use Patty’s Cakes for any celebration. If anything, try out their mini or full sized cupcakes, they’re most definitely worth a taste!
My sister bought me cupcake from Patty’s Cakes and I thought it’d be just like any other cupcake, but it wasn’t! I had a cupcake filled with apples (I am guessing it was the butter pecan) and it was so light! You’d imagine that this cupcake to be much more dense and heavy, but it wasn’t at all. I loved the subtle flavors and it had just the right amount of sweetness. Looking forward to trying more cupcakes (and cakes!) from Patty’s Cakes.
[Review] Bought Three Cupcakes and got One Free!!!
Went to go pick up some cupcakes today, and the Yelp
check-in deal was awesome. Bought 3 cupcakes and got 1
free! Bought the Elvis (banana flavored cake, peanut butter
icing, topped with bacon), red velvet, and the Butter Pecan
(apple filled with cream cheese icing).. Can only speak on
the red velvet since my bf and his kids tried the others.
The red velvet was light and fluffy. The cream cheese
mousse was a bit on the sweet side, so I’d probably prefer
a little less. Also the cupcakes are on the smaller side,
compared to other gourmet cupcake places I’ve tried..
Overall, good. I’ll definitely have to try out the more
“exotic” flavors next time. Hope you always have the
I found Patty’s Cakes through Yelp and the stellar reviews proved to be true! I \t was my boyfriend’s birthday so I got him the chocolate carmel salty and butter pecan cupcakes, as well as a German chocolate cake ball. He was very happy with them, so I figure I will go back and get him another one…or two…:-) I also can get on board with any place where the person the store is named for is the one handing you the goods. Thanks Patty!
Oh you fancy huh?
These cupcakes are so pretty!!!
They are way too pretty to eat….but ef it I WAS HUNGRY!
I got 4 cupcakes and 3 cake balls:
Butter Pecan, Apple Filled with Cream Cheese Mousse
This was one of my favorite flavors!! Crazy combination of ingredients that work! The apples are sweet and deliciously caramelized. This one is a must-get when I stop by Patty’s Cakes.
The Elvis (Banana Cake, Peanut Butter, and Bacon)
I think I’m the only person that hates bacon, but Patty’s Cakes’ cupcake is the only exception! This is the only way I could eat bacon; on their cupcake. YOU’RE BACON ME CRAZY. The peanut butter frosting was really good esp. with the banana cake. They were definitely meant to be united.
Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Mousse
CREAM CHEEZYY was finger licking good.
White with Chocolate Fudge
$3 CAKE BALLS –
The red velvet cake balls are a must!! Starbucks’ cake pops cannot compareeee!!
They have toasted marshmallows on top and inside of the cake balls. There’s also graham crackers on top of it, definitely eye candy!!
All of the goodies I tasted were moist and bomb diggity!! I had Patty’s Cakes bookmarked for awhile because Google map said it’s 22 minutes away (I got a little lazy)!! Sprinkles is so much further away from me and Patty’s Cakes is SO MUCH BETTER and with the best service ever! Phillip helped me choose my cupcakes and cake balls. He went into detail on what was inside each cupcake.
So please try: Cupcakes- ELVIS, BUTTER PECAN
cake balls- red velvet and s’mores… I want SOME MOREE! ;p
They make customized cake balls that are so freaking cuteee!! check out their website!

The S’mores Cakeball was so yummy. It isn’t like anything I have tasted before. The outside is covered in chocolate and the inside had marshmallows baked into the chocolate cake. I wish I would have eatten that second.
I also tried the Butter Pecan, Apple Filled with Cream Cheese Mousse. Now this was the most moist cupcake ever! I didn’t get much of the Pecan taste because the apples overpowered the taste, but that was quite alright by me. It reminded me of the sourcream apple pie from Marie Calendars.
I want to go back to the OC for a cakeball. Anyone going to Disneyland, the Honda Center or an Angels game. It is worth the trip off the freeway.
[Review] Sprinkles is still my #1 fave but Patty’s does a great job of satisfying my cupcake cravings! I am a fan!
I’m give Patty’s Cakes a star for the number of times I went there in one week. Yes I was at Patty’s Cakes 5 times in one week. That alone can speak volumes.
I first went because of the cake balls. I have never ever had a ball of cake before, so I had to check it out. It is basically a moist hunk of cake surrounded with either milk of white chocolate. Jess C. and I ventured about a mile from school to try 4 different flavors. We chose: Red Velvet, Lemon, Smores, and Banana. My favorite was the Lemon with the Banana coming in second. Jess’s favorite was the Smores and the Banana. The Lemon cake ball was super moist, like Mrs. Beasley’s lemon cake in Beverly Hills. The Smores had tons of goodies on it. It had marshmallows and graham crackers sticking out of it. Jess likes goodies. The red velvet is pretty but there isn’t enough chocolate flavor to it. I think that they are kind of small for the price of $3 but it is definitely worth a try if you come out here. They are great as gifts because they are fun and unique!
Now the next four visits I came for the cupcakes. One of them I was foiled because they ran out (Saturday before closing, which makes sense) and had to buy more cake balls. The cupcakes are also $3 but I think they are more worth your money than the balls. There are more flavors and they are all iced and decorated so well. I have tried a good number of the flavors and my favorite is the Banana! The creamy pudding-like topping is the best. The cake is amazingly moist as well. Most of the cupcakes have a mouse frosting, which is light and airy. I tend to like heavy dense frostings. haha. The Banana and the Chocolate Fudge don’t have the light frosting. The Lemon also has a gelly like frosting instead of the mouse. The cake itself is light too. So if you like dense cake this might not exactly be your favorite but it is definitely moist and not dry at all. The Butter Pecan is a hit with the crowds as well as their chocolate cupcakes. I’d recommend getting half a dozen so you sample more flavors :D
Sprinkles is still my #1 fave but Patty’s does a great job of satisfying my cupcake cravings! I am a fan! I am also a fan of their customer service. Patty herself is the sweetest lady and the guys that work there are hilarious and funny. Super great staff!
Don’t forget to mention YELP to get your 4th cupcake free!
