We worked with Paul primarily and he was great at responding quickly and very thorough with explaining everything. I had no plan going into it when purchasing our wedding cake and didn't know much about details. Paul went into detail about what he recommended and the final masterpiece came out beautifully! We were very pleased with the end result and everything tasted amazing! Our guests and ourselves enjoyed every bit of the cake/cupcakes!

This cake was amazing! We went to a few different places in Monterey to do our tastings and we were trying to decide between the two. Freedom just opened another location in Monterey that was our second place to taste. Although the look of their office there isn't the best, don't let that make your decision. I loved that they had different kinds rather than your regular chocolate, vanilla, red velvet etc. We ended up getting lemon raspberry for 3 tiers and mango for the 3rd. Mango sounds different, and it was.. but it was SO GOOD. My fiance was the one who insisted we get it. Paul was great too. He knew a lot about all the cakes and didn't push you on anything. He also had a great display book with past cakes that they had done which helped a lot. Although i already knew the look i wanted, it helped seeing that they had done one just like i had in mind. All around, they are great and not too expensive. Their prices were very reasonable! Loved them and would recommend them for sure!

First of all, their designs are just esthetically pleasing and versatile! Their service is friendly and accommodating. We got a sampler package to take home with us, since we were short on time.

Without a doubt this was the best cake I have ever had. The decision was easy! We got Boston Cream Pie. Our cake was absolutely delicious; delivery was smooth and easy; it ended up looking beautiful! Thank you!

My husband and I were so happy with Paul and his team at Freedom Bakery. They provided a cake for our rehearsal dinner, wedding and a groom's cake. Being from New Orleans, we wanted to bring a King's cake to the rehearsal dinner. Paul had never made one but did a great job researching it and putting a little California flare on it...it was delicious! Our wedding cake was absolutely gorgeous and people are still raving about our grooms cake! Not only do their cakes look amazing but they taste amazing as well!
As a medical resident, I work crazy hours and Paul was easy to get ahold of and very accommodating. He went out of his way for planning phone calls at a time that worked for me (long after business hours were over). We really can't say thank you enough to the amazing team at Freedom Bakery!

My wife & I were married in Monterey on Sept 6th, 2014. We chose Freedom Bakery & Confections for our wedding cake & could not have been happier. The owner Paul & his wife were very polite & professional during our tastings. They showed us several types of wedding cakes & tried several different flavors. It was a very pleasant experience & never felt pressured or rushed. In the end, we chose a beautiful 3 tier cake, half white w/raspberry & Bavarian cream and the other half red velvet. We included burgundy ribbon & crystal bands on all three tiers & rhinestones to complete it. Our cake was also cheaper than expected which was a pleasant surprise.
The cake was delivered on time the day of our wedding and more beautiful than imagined. It was so moist & delicious and absolutely perfect! We have received so many compliments from our guests about how delicious the cake was. We highly recommend Freedom Bakery & Confections.

I could not have been happier with Freedom Bakery and Paul in particular. Freedom's website is great - you can actually get a sense of costs by looking at it - and Paul was incredibly responsive and design-driven. He helped me solve a major challenge by arranging 2 cakes - the one he did for us and the one my parents in law brought over from Australia. Paul came up with the idea on how to make 2 cakes & a cheese plate work on one table and followed up with me all along the way to make sure that all of the pieces would be in place. I couldn't have been happier with how it turned out, and to top it all off the cake Freedom made for us was amazing! I can't wait for our anniversary so that we can eat the top layer! Paul is one of those people who says "don't worry - I'll handle it" and you 100% trust him that he will. He also did our favors for us - they were cookies with a kind of screen printing on them. They turned out beautifully - honestly could not have been happier that we went with Paul!

My wife and I ran into Freedom Bakery at a wedding vendor event in a hotel, and by the time we got to their booth I was annoyed with the people around me. But then something magical happened. I tasted their mango cake and was amazed. It was super moist and flavorful.

So, we started talking with them and got some great ideas about how we could have a beautiful three tiered cake that would not be too much. They suggested the center layer be a carrot cake, to be used for the farewell brunch the morning after the reception. Total brilliance.

The day of the reception came and when we saw that cake set up in the reception venue, I was amazed. It was exactly what we wanted but with touches that only an artist can add.

I personally dislike fondant, and that was not a problem. The did a beautiful and delicious butter cream frosting and exquisite candy grapes. I sadly only had one slice that night, joys of being the groom and running all over, but it was amazing.
