Note: We ordered the cake from San Jose and couldn't ever go in person to the bakery, so our experience was thruough email and phone calls.
PROS: The cake is delicious.
CONS:
(1) They give you no help or instructions on how to pick a cake, what colors they have, how early you need to select your cake etc. Every time I asked a question, they told me I was late (ie. I should have picked my cake colors a week ago), and even when I explained to them that I had never gotten married before and didn't know the timeline, they still offered no help
(2) They don't have a voicemail for their phone and don't respond to email for weeks. If you call their phone and they don't pick up, you have to call again. If you have any questions or concerns, you have to chase them down. Also, the phone number listed on their wedding brochure for the owner Hazel is WRONG.
(3) They aren't open on Sundays
(4) The cake picture I sent them was bright pink and orange (Victoria's secret bright pink and neon orange). The cake we got for the wedding was an awful old lady pink and a brownish orange.
(5) After the stress of just trying to get a cake, they never apologized or offered to discount the cake. Overall, the cake process is supposed to be the most exciting part, however with them it was highly stressful never being able to get a hold of them or waiting weeks to hear back from them. Not to mention that our cake was hideous. Very disappointing.

Hazel did an amazing job for our wedding cake. I requested a unique Morocco inspired design (my husband is moroccan) and she delivered perfectly. The cake was paid by our friend as one of our wedding gifts so i'm not sure about the pricing. But I believe it's worth very penny.

We ordered a small two-tier wedding cake for a small and private wedding on St. Patricks' Day. We ordered it late in the game and the staff was very flexible. Layers staff also accommodated our quirky flavor, "poppy seed cake with almond flavored frosting!" (delicious by the way!) They designed the cake off a picture we emailed and it was beautiful. The 4.5 rating is for two reasons: 1) They didn't deliver to our location (25 minutes/miles way). So that was inconvenient and a little scary as it's the first layer cake I've had in my car. Luckily no bumps or mishaps along the way. 2) there wasn't a top cover for the box. I realize it is a 2-tier cake but again, it felt unsafe without a top. All in all - great cake design, great service and the cake itself wasn't just for show - it was very fresh and yummy!

Layers has a reputation in the area, and they have earned it. Their creativity, the designs, the taste- everything was just perfect. They took my exact vision and brought it to life! I really cannot rave enough about this wonderful business. Everything from the first day, to the consultation, all the way to the delicious last bite, my cake was FABULOUS! Thank you :)

We hired Hazel and Layers Sensational Cakes to prepare our wedding cakes and desserts for our wedding in Carmel. We had a few different sample tastings and everything was so good and fresh that we decided to not have a traditional tiered cake rather have 3 small cakes plus some babycakes and some brownie bites! They were all amazing! At one point during the wedding when I noticed the cakes had been put out on display I was so excited because each were nicely decorated to match the theme of the flavor of the cakes...Our sample cakes were not decorated and I was going to be fine with just a plain white cake as we had plans to add succulents to them. They were just as good as when we tried them previously and our guests ate just about all the cake...I found a few small slices the morning after our wedding in the fridge and without a doubt, had a couple bites for breakfast :) Highly recommend using Layers. They did a great job!!!

We chose layers for our wedding cake...

The cake looked absolutely gorgeous and everyone thought the cake tasted wonderfully! We received many compliments on how great the cake was...

The only downfall to our experience was that 2 out of the 3 layers were incorrect... The layer we cut into and fed to each other was not even correct which was a total bummer for us since we were so excited for our cake...

I called Layers after the wedding to inform them of the discrepancy with our cake and I almost felt like the issue was not taken too seriously... I received an apology which was nice but I just got the feeling as if it were not a big deal =(

I asked that they make us a replacement cake topper for our 1 year anniversary for the inconvenience and they said they would...

The quality of the cake was great! The bummer was that we only received 1 layer out of 3 that correct.

I grew up in Monterey and have had Layers Cakes nearly my whole life. I was never the type of woman to plan out her dream wedding, but I always knew I wanted a Layers cake for my wedding cake. I did the cake tasting with my mom, my MOH, and my go to gal and we had a blast! Everyone there was warm and the cakes were delicious. If there was a flavor I wanted to try they had it ready! I even was able to do a combination of cakes and fillings to see what was most fitting for the palettes of our guests. The design of the cake was one I had found in a magazine and the bakery was able to replicate it perfectly! The day of the wedding, all of our guests commented on how the cake was NOT DRY! My girlfriend was married a year ago and she said it had been the best wedding cake she had ever tasted. The flavors were deep and the cake was moist. There were three tiers and each tier was a different flavor. I recommend doing a lemon cake with raspberry filling... and uncommon choice since most people choose white cake, but it was the layer we had the most compliments on. It was my favorite as well!

Delicious Delicious Delicious is what comes to mind first. Fresh, moist, and yum yum!! Hazel was the person we worked with, mostly via our wedding planner. She was very helpful when you could catch up with her - definitely knew her business and made great recommendations. She was also very accomodating. In addition to the first 6 tastings provided, a few months later she made available a 2nd tasting of one of the choices. In addition, she did an excellent job of incorporating our wedding theme on the cake. The people staffing the store front didn't seem to be clued in so much and couldn't answer any of our questions. So, we were very reliant on catching up with Hazel. Since we had planned well ahead of the date, this was not a problem for us.

Delicious cakes! Unlike some of the negative reviews, we found the staff and Hazel the owner friendly and helpful. Their cakes are out of this world good! We just tasted five different cakes for our wedding cake and ended up going with the lemon. The delivery and decoration was as we requested, and no snafus in getting the cake to our small wedding party at Casanova. We just had a single tier cake since our party was so small, so perhaps that contributed to the ease. But I was very happy with how it all turned out and would recommend without hesitation to a friend.

Layers was our first choice for our wedding cake however we did not initially go to them as I thought it may be out my budget, boy was I wrong. After going to another (will not name) vendor in the area and feeling discouraged with how high their price was for a minimal cake we decided to go ahead and just see what our ideal vendor charges-we were so surprised to see that it was totally reasonable as we already knew they had phenomenal desserts/cakes. The tasting was just delightful, we were brought into a separate room which had all of their best flavors ready to be tasted. It was so hard to choose as they were all delicious but we ended up getting 3 different layers which would provide a nice variety to our guests. On the wedding day I was so excited to see my beautiful cake which was just what I wanted. It's sometimes difficult to get a cake that not only looks good but tastes good and Layers accomplished both. I am so happy we went with Layers and will recommend them to everyone I know getting married as they are the very best!

Our cake was beautiful and relatively affordable. The only thing that I wasn't impressed with was the lack of availability on their part to meet with me to do cake tasting. As I was an out of town bride, it was difficult for me to set up an appointment for a week day, but there was no availability for the weekend. I was not entirely pleased with my cake flavor, but of course that was only a small part of the big day. I would recommend them if you live in the area, or are able to set up an appointment to select your cake flavor. They were worth it, and provided free delivery if the reception was in the Monterey area.

THE BEST BAKERY EVER!!! Not only did Hazel and the team at Layer's create the perfect look for our destination wedding, it was the most sensational tasting cakes ever. Every single guest raved about the cakes. How much else could a bride and groom ask for.

I was so impressed with Layers cake, not only was it delicious it was so beautiful. I had sent them a picture of what I wanted my bouquet to look like and they created the most amazing cake. My guests were so impressed and once they tasted it, they loved it. It was so unbelievably delicious that not a piece was left.

Although we got off to a rough start, our overall experience was great! Initially getting in contact with our consultant was difficult and emails were sporatic, but once we met at the tasting, we really hit if off. Not only was the cake beautiful and delicious, it was exactly what I had requested -- which was not a typical wedding cake. Delivery was timely and guests loved it! Hazel was beyond helpful at our consultation and I can't thank Layers enough for the outstanding job they did! Pictures to come soon!

Layers created our cake and other small desserts for our wedding at Holman Ranch. Our experience with Layers was fantastic from the tasting through to our wedding day. The cake was beautiful and everyone told me it tasted amazing! Several people went back for seconds and even thirds! Unfortunately I was too busy taking pictures to grab a piece of cake, but we have our top layer to look forward to on our 1st Anniversary!!

EVERYONE loved my cake and it was GORGEOUS and tasted ABSOLUTELY incredible. I chose the Strawberry Shortcake with Buttercream icing and It was so good, it had fresh sliced strawberry's, the cake was moist and soft and the buttercream was the perfect combination it wasn't overly sweet it was perfectly decadent. On the phone they weren't very nice and it was hard to get through to anyone I was on hold for 30 minutes one time because they forgot about me so I had to call back. But overall what was important was that my husband and I enjoyed the cake and so did our guests.

Hazel and her staff are wonderful! I planned my wedding from Colorado, and Hazel was wonderful over the phone. Then, when we were in town for our one visit to finalize everything for our wedding, we had a tasting. The staff who greeted us were wonderful! They offered my whole group (me, my now husband, my in-laws, and my mother) coffee while we waited. Then, Hazel was so warm and friendly as she guided us through the tasting and lookbook. Our cake was absolutely delicious, and it was just gorgeous. We had different flavored layers: death by chocolate, princess, and lemon, and they were all DELICIOUS. I highly recommend Layers if you are looking for a bakery to make your wedding cake!

I really was not very satisfied the cake didn't look very professionally done, they delivered the cake without the topper we had to put it on when we arrived at the reception, we were not given any kind of box to store the leftover cake and the actual cake I felt was not as good as the samples provided at the cake tasting I was just not very happy with the cake at all and it cost almost 600.00.

Layer's Sensational Cakes is the best! We went in about 3 months before our wedding. We got to do a cake tasting which was like heaven already. They are very flexible as to how you want it to be designed. You can have any color you want. Also, if you want flowers on the cake, you can just have someone deliver real flowers the day before the wedding and they can decorate it ever so beautifully for you. Although we only got the 3-tiered cake, they have other services like getting an extra sheet cake for serving or even cupcakes if you want them! We chose the red velvet for our bottom layer (it is to die for!), the white with raspberry for our second layer and the lemon cake for our top layer (which is in our freezer just waiting to be eaten). As long as your reception is in the Monterey area, they will deliver it for free! This is part of their services which is awesome. I can't say enough how much their cakes taste soooo gooood! We worked with Hazel, who is so amazaing. She was very flexible with us and asked us how we wanted it designed. She can recommend different types of icings, flavors, designs for you. Also, I believe if you are a local or you are in the military, you can get a 10% discount, which helps out a lot. My brother had his wedding on 10/08/10 and recommended us to go to Layers for our wedding cake as well. I recommend everyone to use them! They have wonderful services, but most of all delicious cakes! :)

The cake was delicious and they are very professional! The only thing I didn't like was the ribbon and brooches they used on my cake. My cake was only going to plain white fondant, but with really nice elaborate ribbon and brooches around each layer. They looked really cheap though. I should have just supplied them myself I suppose, but they had assured me that they would use only high quality materials (including the ribbon). Other than that, everyone really enjoyed the cake. They also threw in some free cupcakes for the kids at the wedding, so that was really nice of them! I would recommend them to other brides.

We had a destination wedding, so we unfortunately couldn't go cake tasting in the Monterey Peninsula. But it was very easy to work with Layers from a distance. I talked to a few bakeries, but they were the most flexible, more affordable and had the flavors we wanted: carrot cake/cream cheese & chocolate/raspberry hazelnut :) Our wedding was in a vineyard with an outside ceremony and a fun wedding reception inside the barrel room, so we wanted a cake to go with it: elegant simplicity with an organic feel. After only a couple of phone calls and emails with Hazel, we decided on a three tiered french butter cream topping decorated with natural flowers. I barely had a few bites on our wedding day, but i was glad to take the top tiered carrot cake...it was very moist and delicious. Needless to say, we're not doing the 1 year anniversary tradition..it was breakfast for a few days :

Layers provided the cupcakes for my wedding. They made everything very easy. We walked in, grabbed a sample box of their flavors to taste at home, and then went back a few weeks later and made our decisions. They were very helpful in determining the amount cupcakes, what flavors, and how many of each kind to get. They also through in an extra cake for us to use for the cake cutting at no extra charge. We paid a little extra and they delivered the cupcakes to the venue and set them up on the stands that we provided. A friend used them at her wedding for her cake and recommended them to me and would also recommend them to any of my friends.

I had a small wedding and decided to go with cupcakes with a cake topper and honestly, I would have paid more than what they charged me. The cakes were yummy, and they looked beautiful! I have been getting my brithday cake here since I was sixteen, I'm now 27, and hae always known I would get my wedding cake here. The only disappointment was that I felt like I had to chase them down to get answers to questions and then to follow up in the weeks before the big day. Thankfully, they came through beautifully and I would definitely recommend them to anyone, just be sure to be on your A game.

Layers provided an absolute gem of a cake for our wedding. The product they produced matched my vision perfectly. Not to mention the cake was amazing to eat! We loved the mosaic chocolate tile design that went halfway up each layer & the red spray roses they had cascading down the side truly completed the cake. Each layer was a different delicious flavor & all our guests enjoyed it very much. We were very pleased with Layers service.

Thanks, Layers, for a scrum-diddly-umptious wedding cake! I wish I hadn't let my hubby-to-be talk me out of getting 4 layers instead of only 3. The guests wanted to try both flavors, then went back for even more! So even though we only had about 65 people there, I was left with only about 5 or 6 servings. Guess some of them were gluttons-in-hiding, like me.

I don't think the top layer will last a year chilling in the freezer. I'll blame a power outage causing the cake to go bad if/when my hubby discovers the box missing. I'd blame the dog, but we don't have a dog. And thanks for the sample cakes and the surprise apple pie waiting for us when we got back to our suite after the reception! Suh-weeet beginning to a wonderful marriage!

I have to say - I was all excited to have Layers do my cake (since their designs are amazing), but just for good measure, I booked 2 appointments to shop around for a vendor. The first place I went to (not Layers) had the most incredible cake flavors & their designs weren't as great as Layers, but they said that they could definitely do my design. When I went to layers next, their cake tasted so bland after having the first choice. The icing tasted like it was whipped crisco & the cake tasted like regular pound cake. Plus, because of the design I wanted, they insisted on fondant (which is not what I wanted) & jacked the price up. Overall, if you're only concern is design, this place is great - but I do not recommend them due to their cake taste & prices.

I was pretty busy at my wedding and so I don't really recall how the cake tasted, however, I remember from my tastings that the cake here is just devine. Plus all my guests later told me that they rushed back and ate as many cupcakes as they could get their hands on. It was a big hit!
I just ordered a small 2tier cake in sea green, they put some really pretty seashell decor on them, then I had a cupcake tower those were also decorated with shells.

my only recomendation is to go for the 3 teir cake, i didn't realize until i saw it how small 2 tiers look next to a huge cupcake tower :) great service, Tony was awesome to work with.

I picked Layers because not only did they offer more cake options compared to others I went to in Monterey, but they were priced on the low side for the quality and taste I wanted. The cake tasted great, although I only got that "one" bite. However, the cake was not designed the way I informed them. They missed one piece of information that changed the whole look of the cake, but it was still beautiful. Other than recommending you go for this place, and at least a month in advance or they could be booked, definitely make sure they've got all the right information in mind the week of the wedding to ensure they do it your way.

Layers did both the groom's cake (carrot cake shaped like a Super Mario mushroom), and our wedding cake (3 tier death by chocolate with marzipan). Both were so delicious, and both didn't have that stale wedding cake taste. They were moist and fresh tasting. All our guests loved the cake, we can't wait for our 1 year anniversary to eat it again!

We loved the atmosphere of this bakery. Very friendly, family oriented staff. Wonderful tasting experience. Cake was what we wanted. Not sure the cake was the same flavor that we chose when we did the tasting but it was still wonderful. Would recommend this bakery to anyone, anytime.

Layers is my favorite bakery in Monterey, so of course I wanted them for my wedding cake. They did not disappoint! They sat down with me and let me taste the various cakes and icings. The red velvet was my favorite because it seemed to have a little bit of a chocolate taste which made it that much better. They even left room for my florist to add her own personal touches (per my request). Thanks again Layers, you're the best!

Layers did an AMAZING job on our cake! I literally gasped when I saw it. I sent one tiny picture I had found online of the dream cake. Our cake looked EXACTLY like it. It was absolutely perfect, and tasted great! I overheard my brother-in-law saying, 'Now this is what cake should taste like!' Their services were arranged through the Highlands Inn in Carmel, so I can't speak directly to the quality of the service. What I do know is that it was there on time and exactly what we wanted. I'd highly recommend them. If you'd like to see pictures of our beautiful cake, check out our wedding website under the 'Wedding Photos' tab.

Tony was always available to answer questions and make suggestions. My family has ordered cakes from Layers for years and they did an amazing job on my sister's wedding cake -- so I knew they were a bakery that I could trust.

I was extremely happy with Layers cake. I had envisioned a cake and had shown them about 3 different photos to get what I wanted. They did exactly that. I was a little nervous about putting together, teal, orange and green, but they did it perfect. I wish I could attach a photo. The cake was the talk of the lunch and everyone who saw a photo thought it was the coolest cake ever.

The only thing that can be said for this amazing business is that the very day we had our cake tasting with them, we signed a contract, paid them in full up front and cancelled our appointments with other bakeries. Not only are their cakes absolutely beautiful, but they taste indescribable. Seriously, they have cakes with names like “Death by Chocolate,” “Princess Cake” and “Italian Rum” with fillings like Hazelnut Cream and Lemon Curd that can be smothered in things like Poured White Chocolate or Marzipan!!!!! Honestly, we can’t drive anywhere in or near Monterey since that fateful cake tasting appointment, without stopping for a bite. And yes, they sell it by the slice and the variety available by slice changes daily.

We have to say that we were very pleased with how the cake was displayed, the design and taste were extraordinarly fabulous. Everyone at the reception kept going on about how beautiful the cake was and that it was really yummy. We tried out several other bakeries in the area, but by far Layers is the best!
