Our wedding cake from Cocoa Bean was included within our venue\'s package. Although we were \"stuck\" with one bakery for our cake, I was pleasantly surprised when I found out how tasty the pastries and cakes at Cocoa Bean were we decided to try a sampling early on in our wedding planning. We have actually gone back multiple times to try additional pastries/cakes, and we have never been disappointed. I gave the team a picture of what I wanted my cake to look like, and it was amazing! Just as I had imagined it! We had chocolate with vanilla bean mousse and white with lemon mousse, and both were super tasty and moist.

Very tasty wedding cake! Nancy and the bakery staff were very easy to work with. The design was exactly like the picture that I gave them. They went out their way to customize the flavors exactly to our likings. Everyone really enjoyed it :) They only issue was that we never got a piece or layer of cake to take home (put in our freezer) for our 1 month anniversary? Not sure how that happened, and a little disappointed.

Our wedding cake from Cocoa Bean was included with the food from our venue. We sampled flavors prior to the wedding and Karen was very flexible and easy to work with. The cake itself was delicious and we received many compliments from our guests! I expected our guests to rave about other aspects of our wedding, but the fact that they raved about the cake speaks volumes about how good it was!

Chocolate cake with chocolate raspberry mouse, SO GOOD!! Everyone was raving about the cake, and I have been trying to duplicate it.
The shop is adorable with lots of other tasty treats. We use them for birthday cakes now. Very happy!

Working with Nancy was amazing. She is very good at what she does. Neither my husband nor I like wedding cake. We find it to be dry, flat, and gross. Our cake from the Cocoa Bean was excellent! They make the cake about a day before the event, and decorate it the morning of. Also, they use real butter instead of shortening which means that the cake is moist and delicious. I would recommend them in a heart beat. Nancy took a design I found online gave it her own flair and made it even more beautiful.

We did not have a cake. Cocoa Bean was the first place we visited and we tasted their cakes--which were stunning and delicious. We were walking out when we saw all of their pastries. They were so beautiful. There is nothing I love more than a tapas/sampler style of eating. We decided that instead of a cake, we would have a sampling of different pastries at every table. We had so much choosing from the many delicious and beautiful options that they had. Everyone loved them! One thing I would suggest is getting something in writing from them on when payment is due and so on. I did not have anything and the week before the wedding, they called to ask if I was still planning on having the desserts. I had been meticulous on everything else so something in writing would have helped. Price wise not the best deal around, but taste and appearance and flexibility wise--best around!

That was some darn good cake! If I had had more time at the wedding I would have stuffed myself. We have received so many compliments on both the cake and cheesecake. The cake was very unique and was exactly what we wanted. We also utilized Cocoa Bean for the desserts for my wedding shower. They were also picture perfect and extremely tasty. You are now my official bakery.

Our cake was delicious! We had many guests tell us how much they enjoyed the cake - many said it was the best they ever had! I would recommend calling a week or so before the event to make sure your order is correct. I called to confirm some details and they didn't have everything down exactly as we originally discussed. But the day of the wedding the cake was perfect!

The cake was delicious and enjoyed by all. It was much smaller that I had expected and they had missed one important detail on the cake, but never the less it was still good and delivered on time.
