Four Easy Steps LINK TASTING REQ.
As wedding cake professionals, we make the cake selection process simple. There are four steps to selecting a Wedding Cake:
1 - Flavors LINK
Flavor is the primary focus of our bakery, and our nearly dozen cake flavors are tastefully complemented by our light, airy icing. Instead of hard fondant or overly sugary buttercream, our light icing provides the perfect balance of flavor and texture as a topper and filling to our cakes. We can suggest combinations that range from traditional to trendy, but you can also get your creative juices flowing with our fancy wedding cake flavor chart. There is something for everyone.
Wedding Cake Flavors LINK
|White & Chocolate Marble Swirl||Butter Yellow|
|Red Velvet||Applesauce Spice|
Wedding Cake Fillings LINK
|Raspberry & Bavarian Custard||Vanilla Bavarian Custard|
|Chocolate Bavarian Custard||Peanut Butter Mousse|
|Chocolate Chip Mousse||Chocolate Mousse|
|Vanilla Mousse||Cookies n' Cream|
|Chocolate Fudge||Mint Chip Mousse|
|Tart Lemon||Mandarin Orange Mousse|
|Cream Cheese Mousse||Pineapple Cream Cheese Mousse|
|Add chocolate chips to any filling...|
Wedding Cake Icing
Flavor is the primary focus of our bakery, because of this, we provide one icing choice. Instead of using tasteless fondant or overly sugary buttercream, we use a light, airy icing on all of our cakes. Our light icing provides the perfect balance of flavor and texture to our cakes.

Gluten-Free Wedding Cakes LINK
Patty’s Cakes understands that everyone has different dietary needs and restrictions, and we work with our brides and grooms to make something special for everyone, including gluten-free cake options. (click here for more information) (show less)
Items marked with this symbol have a gluten-free option available. Please be sure and ask for the gluten-free option when ordering.
If the bride or groom needs the cake to be gluten-free, we recommend selecting a gluten-free flavor for the top tier and standard cake for the rest of the wedding guests.
If a limited number of guests require a gluten-free option, a popular solution is to purchase gluten-free cupcakes or a separate cake for those guests.
Wow!! I am so impressed with our beautiful and delicious 3 tier white cake with vanilla Bavarian cream and raspberry jam filing! It was light with just the right amount of sweetness and tartness. The cake was so scrumptiously moist too. All our guests loved the cake. This meant so much to us because 80% of our guests were Asian and don't like anything too heavy. Trust me, it's a huge compliment. I was so glad to hear our guests marveling at the beauty and taste of our cake. Thank you so much Patty and your team for making the process so easy and making the perfect cake for our perfect wedding day.

2 - Design LINK
Bringing Your Cake to Life
Your wedding cake will come together with the marriage of our cake flavors, airy, light icing, and your ideas for design. While flavor is the primary focus of our bakery, we are happy to work with you to bring the vision of your wedding cake to life. We have photo galleries for inspiration and welcome you to provide pictures as well. We’re quite sure the collaborative creation of your cake will ultimately leave your guests wanting seconds!
Many images of wedding cakes found on the internet are made with fondant. They may look fantastic, but they fall short on flavor. This is how Patty’s Cakes is different--you’ll cut our cake with ease and enjoy every bite!

3 - Pricing LINK
We keep our pricing as simple as possible. Pricing is math, and we're cake geeks, not math geeks.
Wedding Cake Options LINK
Wedding cakes are typically three-tiered cakes. Small weddings usually have two-tiered cakes. Larger weddings generally require a three, four, or even five-tiered cake, and are often accompanied by a sheet cake for additional servings. Sheet cakes are not displayed with the wedding cake; they are kept in the kitchen and served unbeknownst to the guests. The combined servings from your tiered cake and sheet cake will equal your total headcount. Use the estimator below to figure out what sizes work for your wedding.

Wedding Cake Packages LINK
Booked your wedding at a venue where a cake from us is included in your package? You're in the right place. A cake from us is included at no cost, however, you have the option to upgrade your design if you'd like. Designs found in the basic category are included. Upgrades can be found premium and prestige categories. The next step is to schedule a tasting.
Wedding Cake Pricing LINK
Guest count, tiered cakes, sheet cakes, delivery, add-ons, and rentals are all factors that determine wedding cake pricing. This estimator is designed to give you an estimate of what those costs are.

Wedding Cake Estimator
- Select your cake shape.
- Drag the "tiered cake headcount" slider to match your headcount (example 200).
- Click the box below "To show the estimated total".
- Your estimated total will appear. This would be an estimate for all servings in the tiered cake.
- Want a lower price? Move the “Tiered cake headcount” down (example 50) and move the sheet cake headcount up the same amount. This gives you a new lower total price, and it will serve the same amount of guests. As shown in "Total headcount". Play with these numbers to see your options.

Patty's Cakes made our awesome cake for our wedding back in September. We visited many different bakeries but none really held a candle to Patty's Cakes. The whole process from soup to nuts was enjoyable, stress-free, and absolutely delicious. We were lucky to work directly with Philip for our cake. He was phenomenal, totally there with great advice when we needed it and helped us choose a cake that everyone on our big night enjoyed and adored.
The cakes themselves were top notch. We were able to sample a bunch of different combinations and had trouble narrowing down the ones we wanted (Their versions of Funfetti and Red Velvet are probably the best I've ever had) and Philip helped us plan out a simple but elegant decoration that looked amazing free from inedible decorations like fondant. Everyone at our wedding loved the way the cake looked and most importantly how the cake tasted. It was delicious, and everyone had nothing but praise for it.
Logistically, everything was smooth sailing as well. Paying for the cake was super simple via their website and delivery the day of the wedding to Laguna Beach was perfect as well. No issues whatsoever.
Bottom line, if you want an amazing wedding cake that looks and (most importantly) tastes amazing, you absolutely cannot go wrong with Patty's. Having them make our cake helped make our special day much more memorable. Huge thanks to Philip and the rest of the crew!
