I used Kathy's Kreative Kake's for my wedding in March 2014.

They have books and books full of previous cakes that they've made, and they can do all kinds of complicated, beautiful designs. But I just wanted a simple white buttercream frosting, three tier round cake. I chose the lemon filling flavor from their list of wedding flavors without even going through a tasting.

I honestly haven't ever had good wedding cakes, so I wasn't expecting much. But I and all of my guests were blown away by the taste! And my husband and I spent the week after the wedding continuing to eat the top layer -- it was so delicious that we didn't want to put it in the freezer.

Kathy was great about coordinating with my florist, since he placed the flowers on the cake (She even offered to do it herself).

The only reason I rate them low for professionalism is that they don't have a POS system -- they make you write your CC information down on a piece of paper which opens you up to all kinds of potential fraud.

My cake was delicious! I had a simple white 2 tier cake with lemon poppyseed cake, lemon custard filling, iced with whipped cream and covered in fresh flowers. Perfect for my simple ceremony by the beach. Everyone loved it.

Kathleen (of Kathy's Kreative Kakes) makes a delicious cake. And with crazy design ideas, she is the Queen! I went in with an idea of what I wanted, (three teired cake with dual color DNA strand plus a raised top tier with our monogram and a yellow gold/white gold set of rings standing up on the top.) again, picture would be nice to add.
I couldn't find the center piece that I wanted anywhere. I told Kathleen and she said she would find a way to make it work. She told me that she worked with Tap Plastics, and would be able to find something. I said OK. sounded goood to me, she was easy to trust.
The cake was perfect!! It was not until a week later that I realized the styrophome rings at the top were actually not plastic, but edible fondant! lol. Way to go Kathy!

I am so glad I trusted her! her creativity knows no bounds. hehehe ask her about the biggest cake her predicessor Kathy made. haha, amazing story!

Anyway, five stars across the board, Kathy's Kreative Kakes is well worth a visit!

We got married at the San Mateo Marriott and were refered to two places for wedding cakes. The first one was Copenhagen Bakery on Burlingame Avenue. The second was Kathy's Kreative Kakes in San Mateo. Copenhagen's cake was dry and when we went to speak to someone regarding what they can do, we were shoved a bunch of books and were told to look through and find what we liked. The lady that was "helping" us was also working the register and seemed to have a lot on her plate and no time for us. SO we sampled the cakes and left.
When we went to Kathy's Kreative Kakes, we met with Kathleen (not Kathy the owner, but Kathleen) She was VERY attentive and went through ALL our options and asked us what we had invisioned as well as suggested some that she had based off our ideas. We made a second appointment and sketched out a rough draft of what we wanted the cake to look like. It was just what we envisioned. The cake was so moist, we were impressed with the quality. We just got the feeling that we were going to be well taken care of....and WE WERE!!!! Our cake was beautiful and delicious.
