[Review] Whoever invented cake balls is AMAZING!

Rho L. - Chino Hills, CA - 4 Star rating via Yelp

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.

[Review] 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.

[Review] The Elvis cupcake is delicious!

Jackie N. - Irvine, CA - via Google Reviews

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!

[Review] Amazing gluten free cupcakes!!!

Kasandra S. - Placentia, CA - via Google Reviews

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!!!

[Review] 32 Standard flavors!

Raymond L. - Irvine, CA - via Google Reviews

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

[Review] Professional & very friendly staff

Ty D. - Carson, CA - 5 Star rating via Yelp

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.

[Review] Extraordinary experience!

Sofia Figueroa - 5 Star rating via Google Reviews

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!
