Patty’s Cakes is the place to go for wedding desserts! We decided to go with cupcakes – red velvet, vanilla, and chocolate, and all of our guests commented that everything was delicious. Patty and her staff worked tirelessly with us to make sure everything was perfect, even staying after hours when we were late for an appointment. Great staff and great food – our experience could not have been better!
We have a special fondness for cupcakes at home and work. Have been to lots of different places in north OC, and Patty’s cakes are definitely the most flavorful and moist. We had the chocolate layer cake with chocolate chip mousse filling, the chocolate- caramel salty cupcake, and the chocolate-peanut butter mousse cupcake on our last outing there. Thank goodness, and CURSES, this place is within walking distance! So hard to avoid this temptation…
After extensive taste testing of cupcakes in the greater OC area, we are ordering our wedding cupcakes from Patty’s Cakes. Seriously, neither of us likes cake, so when we started talking about wedding cakes, I was like… meh. I don’t like the look, the taste is usually subpar, and you seem to sacrifice flavor for some fancy look that you eventually eat. But cupcakes! That’s a cute morsel that I can get behind. The trick is to find cupcakes that aren’t dry and a baker that will work with you on multiple dozens. Enter Patty’s Cakes! Great flavors – our favorites are the Lemon Drop and the Peanut Butter Mousse. So good! So, if you are looking for cupcakes for a party or wedding, give them a try.
Patty’s did my daughter’s first birthday cake and smash cake! The cake was pricey at $218 (for 2 tier that feeds 50) + $10 for the smash cake, and we added the cake toppers. It was a bit challenging trying to explain the design we wanted (I eventually ended up doing a detailed hand drawing for them to copy!), and they were very strict about sticking to an existing piping design on their website (nothing new/custom), but in the end the cake turned out beautifully and tasted AMAZING. I would go back for the cake taste, more than the design capabilities, but we were very happy overall.
“Soooo good!” That’s what we said at our cake tasting and what our guests said at our wedding. After going through her cake photo album online, I found “the cake” and made an appointment for a tasting. Our tasting was so intimate, no distractions, complete focus on us, it was great. After showing Patty, yes the owner was doing our tasting, the style we liked, she brought our different flavors. My fiancé at the time requested a red velvet cake with cream cheese cake frosting. We tasted a lot of red velvet cakes at other tastings, but there was no denying this was the very best. Not only was the cake super moist, but it didn’t taste like dye. It was very light and airy, unlike the dense ones before, and the frosting was not a heavy buttercream, but rather a whipped, light frosting. We loved it so much that we couldn’t wait for the wedding to taste it again so we grabbed some red velvet cupcakes shortly before the wedding. Patty suggested bringing some of the orchids I would be using in my wedding to her so they could be placed on the cake, and I’m glad she did because it looked gorgeous. After tasting her cakes, there will be no contest! Thank you, Patty!
What we find outstanding about Patty’s cakes is that they made our wedding cake absolutely gorgeous and delicious. We chose them because they specialize in designing their cakes without fondant. Don’t get us wrong, we do like how fondant could make a cake look very neat but we believe fondant takes away flavor with the taste and unnatural feel of hardened sugar coating. Patty was able to find the balance of making her cakes look beautiful and keep the taste extraordinary.
Working with Patty was simple as can be. She was easy to communicate to through phone and email. The only difficulty was choosing from the different flavors of cake, filling, and icing! There were so many combinations that paired nicely. Taste testing was an enjoyable experience and a nice break from the stress of planning others parts of the wedding. Definitely treat yourself to a cake taste testing at Patty’s.
We chose Patty’s for our wedding cake and we could not have been happier with them. Everything from the cake tasting to the design to the delivery was extremely easy and a pleasant experience. Not to mention the cake was AMAZING! Highly recommend this place to anyone.
I absolutely loved my cake because it was exactly as I asked for. Patty’s cakes provided great service from Philip who helped us decide on a design and size. Patty’s fit our budget and we didn’t lose out on taste. I’m happy we chose them for our cake and would recommend them to others.
Our wedding cake was better than we could have ever imagined! We ordered a banana cake and it was absolutely scrumptious! All of our guests were asking for seconds. Thank you Patty’s Cakes for delivering not only a beautiful cake but one that we couldn’t stop eating. We are forever grateful!
