[Review] Wonderful atmosphere and absolutely delicious!
Wonderful atmosphere and absolutely delicious. When I walked in I was heartily welcomed and cheerfully shown around the menu. The lovely Bethany took my order and prepared my cupcake specially for me-I got the “elvis” cupcake on her friendly recommendation and I have never enjoyed a cupcake so much. I will certainly be returning, this bakery is a hidden gem. Do your tongue a favor and stop by.
A must-try cupcakery!! and be sure to get the ELVIS CUPCAKE because it is to die for! … it consists of a banana flavor cupcake with peanut butter mousse and topped with brown sugar coated BACON!!!! [correct me if im wrong with the ingredients].
Yes that’s what will happen to you if you eat The Elvis.
It’s a cupcake with banana cake, topped with peanut
butter mousse, and …..BACON. Elvis’ favorite sandwich
that gave him all those chins, can be yours in Cupcake
form. It’s absolutely delicious, the sweetness of the
banana cake, the saltiness of the bacon, and the creamy
peanut butter mousse that holds it all together so well.
They weren’t skimpy on the bacon either, it had several
nice thick pieces of it on top. Let’s face it Bacon is
the new ketchup, just put it on everything. It’s
basically a condiment now. Any day you will see it
ground up in powdered form right next to those little
packs of salt and pepper.
We needed a birthday cake for my daughter, and like any
good father, I had to sample the bakery first. 4
cupcakes should do it. When I walked in, I was
wondering where all the cupcakes were? Just a menu
hanging on the wall and a few cake balls in the display
case. Well it turns out that the cup cakes aren’t
frosted until you order it. It might mean that the
order process is a little slow, but they want your
cupcake to be perfect. That also means you can create
any combination of cake and frosting you want.
Although, just trust them, they have a bunch of
combinations listed on their menu (23 I think). Some
have names….so The Elvis had to be ordered of course,
Chocolate Caramel Salty, and a Lemon Drop and then a red
velvet with cream cheese mousse.
My wife’s favorite was the Chocolate Caramel Salty.
Chocolate cake, fudge, caramel, and sea salt. If you
like salty toffee in chocolate, you will like this one.
The Lemon Drop was interesting. Rather than frosting,
it was topped with a strong lemon jelly that you might
find inside a donut. I think I would prefer frosting if
I ordered it again. The red velvet was very good. This
was topped with a cream cheese mousse. The result was
the same flavor of cream cheese frosting, but whipped
much lighter, so it had a consistency of a butter cream
frosting. This could be good or bad for you depending
on how you like your frosting. I like mine a little
thicker. One thing I did like about the cupcakes was
that they inject a little frosting in the middle of the
cupcake as well.
So they passed the Daddy test, and we ordered a half
sheet red velvet cake with cream cheese mousse frosting.
My daughter wanted a Barbie in a purple princess dress.
They helped us find an image online and my daughter
loved that she could pick which design. They were
really great about taking their time with us and got
exactly what she wanted. When we picked up the cake, it
looked just like the picture, they did a great job. And
the important part, it tasted just as great as their
cupcakes. So thanks Patty’s cakes, we’ll be happy to
use you guys again.
This is THE best bakery in the area. The service is very friendly. Their cake balls are superb (lemon, red velvet). Haven’t tried the other ones, but I’m sure they are good. They have a large cupcake selection, and they ice them after you order them, so they don’t stale. I tried the butter pecan cupcake and the white cupcake with peanut butter mousse. I’m not someone who gets excited about sugary foods, but this place is wonderful. They also have complimentary water with orange slices in it. The neighborhood isn’t the best, but the inside of the bakery is very cute. Strongly recommend this bakery over the other ones in the area, including Beverly’s Best.
[Review] Creative and amazing cupcake with sweetness
My goodness. All of the reviews are right. This place is amazing!
My good friend Sarah brought me and my friend here on our girl’s day out and WOW! I was blown away. The shop is so quaint and adorable and the lady in the front is just oozing with sweetness. Once we put in our orders for our cupcakes to be iced on the spot, we sat by and amused ourselves by looking at their book full of past wedding cakes (all amazing and creative by the way).
We ordered red velvet, elvis, and a chocolate chip cake ball.
Red Velvet: You HAVE to get one of these. The cake is light and very fluffy. The frosting is to die for.. You can really taste the cream cheese and it’s so perfectly creamy and delcious. My mouth is watering just writing this review…
Elvis: My friend and I both squealed “EWW” when we read its description. Peanut butter, banana and bacon cupcake? The guy in the front laughed at us and said that it is actually pretty good. And he was right! It was unexpectedly tasty; the combination of the sweet banana cake, fluffy peanut butter frosting and crisp salty bacon was unique but good at the same time.
Chocolate chip cake ball: I only had a tiny bite of my friend’s when I really wanted to just stuff the whole thing in my mouth. It had great texture and the combination of cake and chocolate was an epic win.
For 3 dollars each, I guess you can say they’re pretty expensive especially for the cake balls. Come in on a special ocassion when you can afford to gain a few pounds and you won’t regret it!
Hurrah for Patty and her cakes! Right when we received the goodies she assured us that we WILL be back, and she was definitely right!
[Review] Elvis cupcake was a hit at a special birthday
Ordered a dozen cupcakes for a special birthday. The Elvis was a huge hit. Bacon and Peanut Butter, who would have guessed…They were all wonderful and beautiful too! Thank you for making the celebration a success! GO TRY THEM
[Review] Their cupcake frostings are super light and fluffy
i love their cupcakes! all of the cupcakes are frost to order… so a bit of a wait! one thing that sets them apart from other cupcakeries is that their frostings are super light and fluffy. they have this one called “the elvis”- banana cake with a peanut butter fluffy frosting topped off with bacon!!!! sounds weird, but soooo good! also, i recommend the vanilla cupcake with chocolate chip frosting- my husband loves it and he hates desserts :)
“Tastiest homage to Elvis? Forget about memorial concerts and movie marathons, The King lives on at Patty’s Cakes and Desserts in Fullerton. Try the Elvis — made with banana cake, peanut butter, and bacon — and you’ll realize why this bakery is the true king of cupcakes.”
