I was not that impressed with Anna's Bakery. They were not ready for us when we came in for our tasting, and made us come back later so the samples could thaw.. first red flag. The cakes we tasted were good but didn't quite have the diversity or flexibility we looked for. Assured by the owner that they could make my vision a reality, we booked them.
I wanted a colored cake, and because they were skeptical it would work, they baked a sample layer, just to see. the color was perfect and tasted loads better than the tasting cakes we had, so i got really excited.

The wedding day brought disappointment though. The cake itself looked nice enough, but the detail work looked unprofessional and amateur. We wanted simple a simple two-tier cake with wavy lines along the bottom, but the lines looked haphazard and just randomly squirted on there, inconsistently and messily. It was a DIY wedding, so people just assumed that I had made the cake, which is NOT what I wanted when hiring a professional baker!

I was not given what I expected, and wouldn't recommend them to another bride.

As I was planning my wedding from out of state, I didn't have a lot of time to visit different bakeries for taste tests. Anna's bakery however had special memories for us as my fiance and I had made weekly Saturday dates there during college to drink coffee and eat donuts. Since Anna's also makes wedding cakes, it was an easy choice for us.

We wanted a hexagon cake and Anna's owners were happy to work with our unusual request. They were also incredibly friendly and personable in all our communications.

The cake flavors were solid and the prices seemed fairly normal. It was the sentiment and the service that I received from Anna's owners (also the cake makers) that really made this vendor the obvious choice for us and also a vendor that I would highly recommend.

We sampled many bakeries in the Santa Barbara area but did not think twice about choosing Anna's Bakery for our wedding cake after we met the wonderful people there and worked closely with the managers. They are definitely there to serve you and what you want for your big day. Not to mention they were absolutely without a doubt the most AFFORDABLE and their cakes even taste better than the other fancy/expensive bakeries! I love their cakes and make it easy to schedule a taste test which I found is not so easy with other bakeries. They were great!

We were so happy to give such a great place our business! They are a pleasure to work with. Eventhough they had never made a cake like the one I wanted, they said they would try. It came out perfect! The tasting was great. They really make you feel like you are important to them and they want you to be happy. There was 5 of us at the tasting and they were delighted! I would definitely use this bakery again and again!
