I'm not going to lie, Bijan Bakery's cake was very delicious BUT meeting Bijan himself and going through our wants and needs for our cake wasn't the greatest experience. From the time I called to schedule an appointment to our last meeting with Bijan he was very rude and was never prepared. Our first meeting he gathered a bunch of different cakes for us to taste but none that we specifically wanted. We told him the flavors we wanted and he said the next time we meet he will have those flavors ready for us to taste. Our next meeting came and he didn't have the cakes ready, and he acted like we were first time clients again asking us the same questions he asked at our first meeting, then he blames us for not bringing our detailed receipt in, and that's why he wasn't prepared. We asked for a custom design and at the end the cake looked beautiful from a far but when up close it wasn't the cleanest or nicest detail design that i have seen, BUT the cake was delicious and our guests enjoyed it.

The cake was absolutely perfect! We have Bijan a picture of what we wanted and what changes were to be made and he did it- it was delicious and beautiful- we couldn't have asked for a better choice!

Cakery is DELICIOUS... did I say Delicious? =) Definitely a good wedding cake vendor. I'd have to say many other weddings we've attended before, the cake was just so so... we even made a special announcement to our guests that the cake is from a wonderful French bakery and it's definitely worth eating.

I love Bijan, they provide great service and pride into everything they do. Bijan was able to take lace from my wedding dress and add it into our cake. It was beautiful and the taste is still with me!

Let me begin by saying, the cake was included with our package from our venue and Bijan's fondant is the best you will ever taste! The cake ended up being beautiful and Mitra is absolutely amazing to work with but there were some aspects I was not happy with. Bijan was really late to our scheduled planning meeting and I didn't get much time to talk with him which may have resulted in some of my dissatisfaction with the cake. The cake was a 4 hexagonal tier cake with flowers in between each layer. 2 of the tiers had piping on them that were supposed to mimic our invitations. The piping wouldn't have resembled the invitations even if you were drunk. I was really disappointed in the quality of the piping. It was smeared and didn't appear to have any real design. Other than the piping, I thought the cake was amazing and many guests told us it was one of the most beautiful they had ever seen.

The cake was tasty and everyone enjoyed it very much. I even stopped to have a piece and it was quite good.

I was disappointed that the color of the cake did not turn out even close to what we had asked for or expected. That said, it still looked good to anyone who didn't know it was supposed to be a darker blue and not off-white.

I also had to leave a couple of messages before getting the appointment to do a tasting. This normally would have turned me off from using them, but a family member had used them several times and raved about them (and they were gifting the cake to us as well).

It pains me to give 1 star to any vendor but I figure brides should know who they are paying for before they book a vendor. I had a HORRIBLE experience with Bijan Bakery. I first found them at a bridal fair in the south bay, loved their cake, and they were on the top of my list to check out as my potential wedding cake baker. I ended up booking them and this is my experience: First impression: Mitra and Bijan are a bit snobby. They know they make great cakes so I will disregard their attitude. They remind me of the "soup nazi" on Seinfeld. Cake meetings: they are only available to meet from Monday - Thursday. Very inconvenient for me (since I live in S.F.) but whatever, we made it down there regardless. Follow ups: You have to follow up with them. I was wondering why 2 weeks before the wedding they didn't contact us to finalize our cake design. We had to call them and it took another week before we were able to meet. Week before our wedding: We "finalize" our design on Monday before our Saturday wedding. We finally meet Bijan the baker and owner (?) of Bijan Bakery. He was pleasant and reassured us that whatever we wanted he can make. We settled on a 3 tier cake with flowers on top, some scroll design, and purple cherry blossoms. Everything seemed set, he drew our design on our contract. Day of our wedding: I sit down at the head table and nearly had a heart attack. My cake was nothing like what we talked about. In fact he did exactly what I hated. The cake was 80% plain with zero decorations except for some flowers on top and some flowers placed haphazardly on each layer. My coordinator's side of the story: She told me that 1) he was late in delivering the cake and 2) when he got there he was really rude and told her that "I cannot do what the bride wanted and this is what she gets". Can you believe that?! He basically knew he was delivering a cake I was going to hate, yet he still did it. Bijan's side of the story: he claims that he didn't do my design because he thought that it would turn out ugly if he did. He said when he delivered the cake, he brought the piping with him and if I wanted, he could have easily add the decorations in 2 minutes. However, since he didn't see me he didn't bother to wait around. My reception started at 5:30 and my hubby and I arrived a little passed 5:30pm so if he really did want to wait for us he would have. When we met after my wedding (about 2 weeks later) there was a lot of "he said" "she said" between him and my coordinator. I don't know who to believe/trust but bottom line is he screwed up. He knew he was delivering something that wasn't up to par but he still did it anyways. How can such a reknowned bakery ruin someone's wedding like that? Now when I look back at my pictures I'll always be reminded of my cake disaster. Unfortunately I will not recommend Bijan to anyone. This is too huge of a mistake to overlook. I gave him 1 star for refunding us a little over 50% of the cost of our cake.

I have been ordering my cakes from Bijan for over 10 years. When it was time to order my wedding cake, Bijan went above and beyond and really delivered a beautiful cake, that tasted amazing, at a great price. Highlights of my cake:
**5-Tier cake for 300 people - Each layer was a different flavor. Bijan provided more than 10 different cakes for my cake tasting. He made great recommendations for which flavors he recommends. Princes Cake with fresh strawberries is everyone's favorite.
**Decor - My wedding colors were Fuschia and Gold. Bijan executed a beautiful cake that synchronized with my decor. He coordinated with my Florist to use the same flowers on the cake. He even added some crystals to the cake and flowers, which really made it special.
**Service - I met with Bijan three times, and he always made himself available to meet when I called. He's been making wedding cakes for years, so I was confident in giving my wedding cake to a bakery who's been in the business and makes the best tasting cakes around.

I ordered my wedding Cake through Bijan's and they really are exceptional. They truly have artists that can really design the cake of your dreams. In addition, they have some really delicious and creative fillings you can pick from compared to some of the other bakers that had a limited selection. Also, they were able to deliver my cake to San Francisco which some of the other bakeries refused. They are flexible in all aspects.

I really enjoyed working with them and would recommend them to others.

Bijan Bakery was the contract baker for my venue (Silver Creek Valley Country Club) but I was not disappointed AT ALL by that fact. The tasting was great, but we ended up picking the mango mousse (SO DELICIOUS) and the opera cake for a four tier cake. I sketched the design of my cake - simple round white tiers with filigree piping and decorated with matching flowers.

Not only did he make the cake exactly how I wanted it, he matched our flowers perfectly (he provides the flowers himself) and it was delicious. He delivers these cakes himself (he doesn't send random employees to do that) to ensure that the cake comes out perfect. Our guests loved it and I'm sure he'll get business from that wedding.

We also had him make our gender reveal cake last week - it was a gorgeous cake AND we found out we're having a boy! Thank you Bijan!
