A Cake Life is definitely great at decorating cakes. I had a cupcake tree with a small cake on the top for the cake cutting ceremony. The cakes were beautiful. However, they were kind of dry. When I had my cake consultation with this vendor, I bluntly told her that the cake was too dry. She just kind of shrugged and said that this is how they make their cakes. Okay, I understand that tiered wedding cakes need to be drier to prevent it from collapsing. However, if you are providing cupcakes as an option for your clients to order, please have a second recipe for cupcakes so that they can be more moist. In the end, I did order with ACL because they had the best decorations I have seen. Plus, this was a destination wedding, so I did not want to worry about cakes anymore after deciding on a vendor.

Kristin did an amazing job with our wedding cake. Everything was so easy with her, we listened to her recommendations go flavours and our guests were impressed. We ended picking out one of the designs from her catalogue and our guests couldn't believe the cake was real and edible, that's how amazing it looked. I would strongly recommend going with this vendor.

Kristin and a cake life staff were wonderful to work with. My initial contact with them was about 6 months prior to my wedding and they already had several orders placed for the same day. Thankfully, they were still able to accommodate my groom's cake. The consultation and cake tasting was really fun! Kristin gave me some really good ideas of what I could do and her work is just amazing. Communication was mostly via emails and there were no problems with that. On the day of the wedding, the cake was setup on time and exactly as planned. The design of the cake was incredible and was a definite highlight of the wedding. We ate the cake the next day and it was very good. I would highly recommend a cake life for anyone wanting a beautiful and delicious cake, especially if you're looking for something with a custom design.

A cake life made our beautiful wedding cake. We told her what we wanted, not knowing exactly how the cake would look like because I wanted to be surprised. The day of our wedding and we walked into our reception I saw our cake and fell in love with it. I absolutely loved it and it came out so perfect and way better then what I expected. Most of all her flavors are to die for, my cake tasted so delicious. Thank you A Cake Life

A Cake Life did my wedding cake and my groom' cake for my Dec. 27 wedding and the cakes were so amazing! The groom's cake was very specific, and she nailed it! It was a raw oyster "happy hour" themed cake to commemorate our first date, and Kristin got it spot on! It was so adorable and realistic - looking. My parents kept asking "this is edible?" (before taking a bite, of course :)! )

The wedding cake was also perfect, and she let us order our own cake topper to cut down on price a bit. The whole thing looked so elegant and since we ordered three tiers total (including the groom's cake) and had a small wedding guest list, we've been enjoying wedding cake for two weeks now :)

My mom, who insisted that wedding cakes never taste good, even thought the cakes tasted great. We got the strawberry/vanilla cake flavor (this was my favorite), the lilikoi/vanilla cake flavor, and the pineapple/coconut. So good.

I was very nervous planning our wedding from overseas, but I was referred to A Cake Life through our wedding planners Opihi Love and I couldn't be happier with the results. A Cake Life was professional and creative, I sent them photos of designs that I liked but told them I wanted something unique and they created a beautiful elegant cake for our special day.
And it was yummy too! Would definitely recommend =]

Kristin from a Cake life is a pleasure to deal with; she responded very quickly to all my emails and was very helpful in trying to find a combinaison of tiers sizes that would work the best for us, considering the group size he had and the look we wanted. When we met for our tasting (really yummy!) only a few days before the wedding we decided on adding a beautiful feature on our Cake, a couple of surfboards with our initials on them which looked great! Our wedding cake was the best tasting cake ever and looked great! Don't hesitate a second to hire A Cake life for your wedding cake!

A Cake Life was recommended to us for our destination wedding. I corresponded with Kristin regarding the wedding cake we wanted, the design, filling etc. I uploaded a photo of a design I liked. Kristin added artistic elements and gave recommendations regarding fondant. We ordered strawberry and cream filling with cascading purple orchids over white fondant. It was delicious! Kristin made ordering easy and the cake was the best I have ever tasted. I highly recommend A Cake Life for wedding cakes and all other pastries. I wish I could order more and have it shipped to my house.

I can't say enough about this amazing company. They were flawless from start to finish, I could have chosen a better shop for my destination wedding. Their cakes are beautiful, unique and the right price point. The quality they use is on point, it was so so yummy. (I got chocolate with coconut cream and coconut cake with pineapple cream... Mmm) the owner is so sweet, she responds quickly and you can tell she truly cares about her business. I recommend any bride to use a cake life! Thank you for a beautiful cake!
