I planned my daughter's Bay Area wedding from Colorado - never stepping a foot in Livermore until 2 days before the wedding. I needed GOOD, dependable, quality people & services to work with to pull off my first daughter's reception event in the way that we had envisioned from afar! I relied HEAVILY on yelp - didn't know about weddingwire.com until after the fact, honestly. But, after getting alot of referrals from friends, checking websites & a LOT of phone interviews for cake designers/bakers - I found a true diamond in the rough on Yelp in Bev Tanaka! She works at a 'real job' & has used her passion & love for cake making & decorating to put her kids through college. And, MAN! She has truly perfected her craft. Bev was on time. She provided EXACTLY what we wanted at an amazing price & it was DELICIOUS! She truly was an amazing find that I am SO glad that we didn't settle before finding her! I wish I could find a way to attach a picture of our cake for everyone to see.... she did such a stunning job on what WE wanted - it was not a 'run of the mill cake'. LOVE this lady, her professionalism & her expertise! I recommend her whole-heartedly!

Bev did such a wonderful job with our wedding cake! She did exactly what I asked. I could not have asked for a better cake for our wedding. Not only was the cake amazing, she is the sweetest, most kindest person I have ever met. The minute you meet her, it's like talking to someone you've known for years. I just adore her! On top of all that, her pricing is amazing. Being that my husband and I were paying for the entire wedding ourselves, she gave us a great price for our cake. Like I said, she is just the sweetest. In addition, she offered to make us a cake for our one year wedding anniversary so we could serve our entire wedding cake. At no charge! Bev, we can't wait to call you up in a year for that! Thanks so much for all your help. 5+ stars!

We found Bev Tanaka using Yelp reviews and we weren't disappointed. She was initially booked on our wedding date but the bride ended up having to move her wedding day (yay for us!). Our first meeting included a general idea of what we wanted, flavors, size, and two freshly baked cakes for us to take home and sample. My husband ate himself halfway through one of them on the car ride home - it was that good. Her cakes themselves are delicious, your guests will love every bite.

You do need to know that she doesn't work with fondant. If you want an elaborate fondant design, go elsewhere. She can, however, work magic with butter cream. Our cake had beautiful swirls on every layer, and then garden roses and orchids stuffed in between the tiers.

In addition to baking a stunning and delicious cake, Bev lets you borrow her silver cakestand, she delivers the cake and then picks up the cakestand the next day from the facility. We were very happy with Bev and highly recommend her.

When we got engaged, we thought we already knew who would make our cake. We went to a vendor showcase at the Palm Event Center and there were bakers everywhere. I didn't really want to taste anything because like I said I already new, or so I thought, who was making our cake. My now husband, spotted Bev's table grabbed a cupcake and with a full mouth said, "Babe you gotta taste this cake!" I was hooked from that moment on. Bev is so absolutely sweet which made it even easier to choose her for our wedding cake. I walked in the venue and saw the cake being set up. It was so beautiful I instantly got emotional. Then later when I got to taste it it was like a little slice of homemade heaven. Bev is excellent with her response times in answering any questions you may have. I can't wait to have another big event to have a reason to order another cake.

Bev Tanaka is the type of person who everyone can instantly fall in love with: having the sweetest personality, motherly nature and professionalism. Her responses are always prompt and thorough. She also has great attention to detail & gave us ideas on how to design the best looking wedding cake...and that she did!!

During our consultation we wanted to book her service even prior to tasting the cake. Once you meet her, you will know why. Sweetest lady ever!! It was an added bonus that her cakes tasted so good. She gave us sample cakes to try and take home. She happily provided samples until we made a decision on our cake flavor. She never pressured us at all to book her services and her prices were very reasonable. She also went the extra mile by loaning her cake stand, added flowers to the cake (which many times, this is the florists responsibility) and provided 2 extra small cakes that we wanted to give to our friends as a birthday cake at no extra charge. She truly went the extra mile. Other bakers would have truly charged for this!

It is also assuring to know that cake money Bev makes goes towards her children's college fund. We felt like we were also helping her and her family in a way. We love Bev Tanaka and her cakes!!!
