Chris at "A Gift of Taste" was extremely accommodating. My husband (now) and I had no idea what kind of wedding cake we wanted, we just knew what we didn't want. We tried 3 different types of cake & filling and were amazed at them all. The same day we had taste tests with 3 other Bakery's in the area but none came close. We were adamant on having butter cream frosting which is harder to work with with and doesn't last as long as fondant, but Chris worked miracles with the frosting and I can truly say our wedding cake was The most BEAUTIFUL & DELICIOUS ever made! We had 4 round layers 2 were white cake with lemon zest and lemon chiffon with fresh strawberries & 2 were chocolate cake (with chocolate chips) and chocolate mousse with raspberries!! Most of the guests, we heard later, all went back for at least 1 more piece of cake, if not more! I just want to add that our caterer had outstanding food at the meal & many appetizers so no one was starving, the cake was just that GREAT!
The cake was decorated exactly how we asked and was stunning!
We could not have been more happy with "A Gift of Taste"! We recommend this bakery for any special event you have & especially weddings!!

I am a Wedgewood Sterling Hills bride. A few months before our wedding I met with Cris at A Gift of Taste. We picked out our flavors and designed one tier(out of 3).
I was supposed to contact her when I decided what I wanted on the remaining tiers. I completely forgot in the craziness of DIY wedding planning.
A week before the wedding, she contacted me and I completely handed over the reins.
My cake was a surprise and I couldn't have been any more pleased with what was presented.
A beautiful cake with my tattoo on one tier, and the WuTang logo tastefully hidden on another. All things that were discussed but I had no idea how she would pull it off.
INCREDIBLE JOB CRIS!! Thank you:)

A Gift of Taste is a wonderful bakery. Everyone is very helpful and creative. When meeting with Chris she was very informative and recommended their popular flavors as well as what fillings would match the cake best. The cake came exactly how we had discussed and was WONDERFUL in flavor. All my guests were commenting how moist and flavorful it was.

A Gift of Taste was a pleasure to work with. Their cakes were amazing… we tried 3 different flavors at our tasting and I wish we could have had all 3. Their buttercream is the best I have ever had. Usually butter cream is very rich and over sweet. Theirs was so light I thought it was whipped cream. The value was amazing and we were extremely happy with how beautiful our wedding cake was. Unfortunately we only got to try a bite of it on the day of because we were so busy but I plan to have a replica made for my husband on our anniversary.

I discovered Gift of Taste when the company that was supposed to provide my bridal shower cake cancelled at the last minute. Not only were they able to make a replacement cake-- they made a beautiful, 100% vegan, raspberry chocolate cake that had guests talking for months. There was no question that I would use them for my wedding cake. Gift of Taste was willing to drive my 3 tiered cake down to Orange County for an affordable rate. The company was very professional and helpful in designing and delivering an amazing cake.

A gift of taste was a great cake vendor. I can't really say much about price because my cake was free due to the package I had with the embassy suites. But the cake itself was DELICIOUS!!!!!!! everyone loved it! Very gifted when it comes to making cakes. I follow them on Facebook and they are always posting pictures of their new wonderful creations. Our cake was beautiful and exactly how we wanted it. I definitely recommend this vendor! They are nice and professional and can make one hell of a cake!

Cris Power and her team of very artistic cake decorators at A Gift of Taste provided us with the most amazing cake for our beach themed wedding! The cake was beautiful and tasted even better than I could have imagined and the design executed flawlessly. Being a project manager for a living, I'm a little obsessed with details, but she set me at ease, and I knew that she would come through with the wedding cake of my dreams. I won't use another cake vendor again!

My cake was the best cake I have ever seen! Of course, I might be a little bias but A Gift of Taste did a fabulous job! It was exactly what we asked for and it tasted amazing! The only thing they didn't do is let me or my coordinator know if they were going to pick up the rental fountain and columns or if we had to bring them back. But our florist, Shell's Petals, took the stuff back for us so we wouldn't have to worry about it which was awesome!

I found this vendor through wedgewood. I am soo happy that they were a part of our wedding package because our cake came out EXACTLY the way we wanted it and it tasted amazing!! We received sooo many compliments on it the day of and to this day we will still get some of our family and friends saying " remember your wedding cake, that was soo good.." Understandably so, Cris is a little leary of setting up tastings more than 4 months in advance. We were so anxious to finalize our cake and get it checked off our list that we had our tasting a bit early. And although I second guessed some details along the way, I didn't have anything changed and I'm so glad we went with our first instinct. Cris was so patient and her and her team have amazing talent. Even though they are about 1 1/2 hrs away from where we live, we will be ordering our anniversary cake from here :)

Gift of Taste did our cake for our wedding. We went there for the tasting and chose our cake pretty quickly, but I have to say the tasting did not do it justice. The cake was good and moist but nothing amazing. The cake made for our wedding was absolutely perfect and tasted wonderful. Everyone raved about how good it was. We were given the top tier after the ceremony and devoured the entire thing that night. We would definitely recommend this vendor and please don't pass them up if your tasting is short of amazing. Your wedding cake certainly won't disappoint.

A Gift of Taste created an amazing set of cakes that were original and fit the décor for our reception. We did not have a specific design in mind but they helped us come up with an original design that matched our colors and overall feel of our reception. We were very satisfied with the final product and the cakes were very tasty as well. I would recommend them highly.

A Gift of Taste provided our wedding cake and it was incredibly delicious & very fairly priced. The only thing I was dissappointed with was that our fresh flowers left on the cake table (by our florist) were not assembled by the Cake vendor, and when we had our initial meeting we had discussed that they would be. Thankfully a family member saw this & put the flowers on for us. Other than that, the cake was beautiful and so so yummy, and I would be likely to order from them again.

My husband and I aren't big cake eaters so we had no clue what we were doing when I had to pick cakes for our tasting. Once I called the shop and set up a tasting and my cake selections didn't sound like the best options, they helped me put the best cakes with the best toppings. I had fun at the tasting with my family and it turned out really good. It was a bit tense at first because I was running late and I understand that was my bad, but I felt that they weren't happy with me being 25 minutes late. Once the tenseness was gone we had so much fun! 30 minutes later I had my wedding cake and she even drew a picture of exactly how it would look. I dropped off my bobble head cake toppers two days before the wedding and they did just as they promised . My cake was delivered on time and it was perfect! Got rave reviews from all our guest. I would totally recommend A gift of taste, you won't be disappointed.

Got married 4-3-10 and ordered a cake from them and it was great. It was small but it was a very small wedding. I got a chocolate cake with raspberry mouse with white butter cream and fuchsia ribbon around the two tears. Everyone loved the look but they definitely loved the taste. I would totally order from them again. It was just they way I wanted it. Thank you!

The woman who runs the place was quite abrasive at times. Over the phone and in person. The quality of the cake and presentation was amazing though. You can't beat it for the price.

We chose cupcakes for our wedding and decided on two flavors: White cake with Raspberry Mousse filling and Red Velvet with Cream Cheese filling/frosting. Both cupcakes were good but not as good as I expected for a "wedding cupcake" (thought it would look/taste more gourmet). We asked the cupcakes me decorated with a seashell on top of the frosting to match our beach wedding and they were able to accommodate the request. We also had a banana cream filled top layer for the cake cutting ceremony and this was very good in flavor.
Several filling options aren't available when choosing cupcakes so make sure to ask or let them know if that's what you're doing.

The cake was beautiful. And was one the most moist cakes I have ever tasted.
However, I felt that the owner was very pushy and rude every time I met with her. The only reason we stuck with her is that she was part of our wedding package. It's kind of a catch 22 for an amazing cake.

I went with A Gift Of Taste because they were provided by my venue with Wedgewood. The shop was filthy. We came in for our cake tasting and she gave me a lot of attitude because I scheduled our tasting 6 months before the wedding. She gave us the opportunity to try 3 different cakes. She had an employee bring us the small cakes, we made our decision quickly, then you're instructed to ring this doorbell that rings in the back to call someone to the front. We rang it upon being done and waited 20 min for anyone to come from the back. She seemed irritated that we were there. I gave her a picture of how we'd like the cake and then we promptly left the dusty store. My fiance mentioned how there was dirt and grime everywhere and the shop front was not well-kept. I don't know how I feel about food coming out of a place so dirty!

The cake ended up beautiful and exactly how we asked - however I wouldn't have chosen this place had my venue not provided their services.

wow, what can i say. the owner was downright mean, had an attitude and did not make this part of the most exciting time of my life fun. she was included in my package with the scarlett belle. i asked if i would be able to save some money off the package if i just had my mother bake our cake instead. since it was part of the package i wouldn't be able to save any money but i was still considering not going with them. and this was for a budget wedding if that tells you anything.
on to the positive... the cake was absolutely delicious. extremely moist and looked amazing. i am so glad, i thought she would ruin my day because of how rude she was but it was a perfect cake :)
i just want you to know there is a con to this cake place even though the value is definitely there.
good luck all!!
