We chose Borracchini's for our wedding cake because so many people we know love them. We ordered a three-tier display cake with a 10-inch base tier, an 8-inch middle tier, and a 6-inch top tier. We also ordered two sheet cakes for our guests to enjoy. We were expecting about 120-130 guests when we ordered our cake. About 100 guests showed, so there was almost an entire sheet cake left. A full sheet serves 60-80, a 2/3 sheet serves 35-50, and a half sheet serves 25-30. We could've ordered two 2/3 sheet cakes, but the price difference wouldn't have been more than $20, and we wanted to have too much than too little. The cakes were delicious, as expected.

However, they might have mixed up our display cake flavor. It looked as expected on the outside, but it did not taste as expected on the inside. I am 99% sure that we ordered chocolate cake with espresso/coffee/cappuccino filling for the top and bottom tiers, and a white cake with some other filling for the middle tier.

When we cut into the bottom tier during cake cutting, we got a chocolate cake, but the filling was raspberry. We were both surprised but went with it because it was our wedding day. Oh well, not a huge deal since we only ate one slice of our display cake, and we only kept the top tier for our one-year anniversary, so we won't ever know what that middle tier was on the inside. I guess we will find out what the filling and cake flavors are for our top tier next year!

We LOVED working with the Borracchini's for our wedding cake!

The tasting experience was great - we picked a couple different types of cakes, icings, and fillings and were able to mix and match them on our own.

They have a decent sized book for design inspiration and several mockups in store.

I loved that they honored our Seattle Wedding Show pricing since I still had my coupon and they delivered our cake on site the day of our wedding. This is seriously some of the best cake I've ever had. I'll DEFINITELY be working with them again in the future!

We had such a great time going to Borracchini's Bakery to get our wedding cake! They had many styles to choose from, and also make custom cakes. It is so fun to go and watch them make cakes. We sampled many cakes and decided to go with white cake with lemon filling, and also ordered chocolate cupcakes. I can't wait to see how everything turns out! Another plus, they deliver!

After reading reviews on Yelp, Knot and others, and based on our experience of cakes from Borrachinis on other occasions, we selected them to prepare and deliver our daughter's wedding cake. She and her husband decided on a chocolate cake with raspberry filling and white frosting. The cake had three layers; we also ordered an additional 8 inch cake in case we needed more. Everyone raved about the appearance and the taste of the cake. We also bought the cake topper from Borrachinis. The only slight hitch was that that delivery person got a bit lost. I called to see where the cake was (it wasn't late for the ceremony, just later than I expected), the delivery person got clarification on our location and all was well. The top layer was preserved for the first anniversary. Beautiful!

I went only about three weeks before my wedding. I have been there many times before for food, birthday cakes, and many other items, but for my wedding cake I wanted it to look amazing and taste delicious. They delivered on both!!! The cake was ready at the scheduled time for pickup and it looked so pretty and tasted amazing too. Cake for 60 people for only $182?! What! I would suggest Borracchini's to any bride not looking for a fondant cake that tastes delicious and looks absolutely beautiful!

Great cake! Didn't get it super personalized but for $18 a cake we can't complain :) Note, we didn't get a wedding type cake, just a plain small round cake to cut.

The cake was absolutely delicious. We got so many compliments from people regarding how delicious the cake was and how beautiful. I've always wanted a cake from Borracchini's and found that the value was absolutely amazing. We got a three tiered cake that was supposed to serve 50 and it served more than that. Plus, it is DELICIOUS. Highly recommend.

I gotten cupcake for my wedding cakes with them, my coworkers refer me to this bakery that is local and family owned in Seattle and has been around for a long time. Great cakes and cupcakes! Very moist, and the icing is bavarian so it's not really rich or sweet just right. When I was chosing the flavor of the cupcakes I was thinking of different flavors to try but she recommended to just stick with one that way everyone will have one each or everyone wants to try all the diff flavor since I was on a budget. Great thinking!!

The taste of their cake is amazing and the woman who works in the bakery is very sweet and prompt. However, I was very specific with how I wanted the cake to look (I offered pictures and specifics on what I didn't want) and was disregarded. They did exactly what I asked them not to do with the icing, after they assured me that would not happen. In the big scheme of things, something could have been a lot worse, but their cakes aren't that cheap. So if you are a bride who is particular with what you want, I would not order from this bakery because it will turn out looking like every other cake they make, just with a bigger price tag.
