We did a cupcake tier with a 6 inch cake on top for our wedding and it came out amazing! It was so delicious and looked exactly how I wanted it to! They were always very professional when I spoke to them and even the tasting room was very nice and elegant.

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.

Layers Sensational Cakes is awesome and we would highly recommend them! Our tasting was so fun and their cakes are delicious, we had no trouble picking them for our wedding cake and cupcakes. Their prices are reasonable and they didn't charge a delivery fee on Saturday! Amazing!

We did a mixture of wedding cake and cupcakes to give our guests some variety, and it worked out so well. We would definitely work with layers again!

And to throw in that it was a destination wedding it makes it that much more amazing because they were able to fulfill our needs even from a far!

Let me start by saying Hazel is awesome. We communicated through email and by phone. We came in to taste a few flavors and they were delicious.

I had emailed pictures and communicated very specifically what I wanted the design to look like. We did a three tier, two single side tiers and a dozen cupcakes. I wanted the frosting to look like a rose on top of each of the cupcakes and again showed pictures of exactly what I wanted, I was assured that it was no problem. Unfortunately I didn't see the display until my husband and I went to cut the cake. The designs were not as I had shown them, and the cupcakes looked like regular cupcakes ( no rose design)

What I can say is they still looked beautiful, they just weren't what I had specified. And the flavors were definitely the best I had ever had. All in all I wasn't completely disappointed

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.
