Everyone at Main Street Bakery is awesome!!! Their food is delicious and everyone I talked to the night of the wedding and since the wedding keeps telling me how good the food was! The staff there helped my wedding day go off without a hitch. The customer service there is also amazing! When I was really stressing out and my mom was being a little difficult Danielle took everything in stride and was so helpful to us and was so flexible when working with us. I would highly recommend Main Street Bakery to anyone looking for delicious food and amazing service on their wedding day!

After attending countless weddings in my life, I did have an idea of a few things I definitely wanted and others I absolutely did not.

One thing I definitely wanted was a small cutting cake and dessert bar for our guests. I can't tell you how many weddings I've been to where there is this beautiful cake that you cut into and it tastes so unfortunately not as beautiful as it looked or even when it does taste wonderful there's literally enough leftover to feed a small army because everyone was full or had no idea it was time for cake.

My amazing planner set up a few tastings for us but as soon as we sat down at Main Street Bakery and took our first cake pop bite, I knew we had to go with Luz.

For our rehearsal dinner we ordered mini tarts and mini pie pops which were so popular I didn't even get to try them! And at our wedding I missed out on the mini pie pops again but snagged a mini cake pop and mini cupcake and, of course, a slice of our cutting cake.

Luz has struck the perfect balance between amazing flavors and beautiful decoration and was very affordable to boot! Any events I have in the area in the future, I'd absolutely consider Luz!

I haven't tried the catering side but did pop in for lunch and had a fantastic chile verde burrito. Also, love popping in for pie pops and macaroons!

Luz made us the most beautiful wedding cake - we designed it together. Then she put together a fabulous dessert bar. I was afraid we would have too much since it was a small wedding (80 people). Between the desserts, the cake and the floral design by Jaimme Leigh Events, the dessert table was my favorite thing of the entire reception! And the desserts were completely wiped out - I got one cupcake! But our guests had a great time sampling cupcakes and 8 other yummy dessert items. I will definitly use Luz again in the future!

I found Luz on Craigslist and was blown away by her prices because all other bakeries in the area were twice as much. We went to her shop next to the Chocolate Dipper in Salinas and were impressed by the pictures and the cake displays she had. We chose a four-tiered, rotated, square cake and got it to feed 150 people for $375 with delivery. We were SO happy to have found such a talented cake-maker for such a good deal.

Throughout the months leading up to the wedding, I had "Liked" her page on Facebook and was amazed at all the cakes that she was making because they looked so creative and beautiful. Since she seemed in to making funky cakes, we decided to ask her to do one for our rehearsal dinner in the shape of our college's stadium.

I am reluctant to admit that we ended up being a bit disappointed with both cakes we received. Sometimes, a bargain is just that. The first cake for our rehearsal was noticeably unfinished, and to her credit, we did agree on it last-minute. She also gave us a price discount for this cake because she was not able to finish all of the details that we asked for. It turned out okay and our guests at the dinner thought it was fun, but based on what we saw on her Facebook page and website, we thought it could have been amazing instead of just okay. We figured that she just ran out of time and was busy that night, and still looked forward our wedding cake.

On the day of the wedding I got a voicemail from Luz at 4:30 pm or so, but I didn't get it until after the wedding because I didn't have my phone on me (our wedding started at 5:00 pm and I was getting ready). The voicemail said that there was a delay with the cake, but it was on its way. Luckily, I had no idea the cake was even late until after the wedding, because it was whisked inside at 5:30 pm when we were taking pictures. I was told later by guests that they saw the cake being set up when they went in for the cocktail hour. Although I didn't know that there had been a delay, it was obvious when we saw the cake that the job had probably been rushed again. The edges of the butter cream frosting were rough, the ribbon around the bottom was uneven, and the tiers were not symmetrical in thickness or rotation. We had hoped to get a butter or yellow-colored cake with dark green bottom ribbon (our wedding colors), but instead ended up with a white-colored cake with more of a bright green bottom ribbon (which looked fine, but still). Luckily, the flowers from the florist and our cake topper kind of took away from the flaws.

One thing I am happy to report that while we didn't get any compliments on the appearance of the cake, everyone raved about the taste. We got marble cake with a chocolate filling, and it was delicious. I think that we were a little more disappointed in the look because we had seen on the websites what it could have looked like had Luz maybe not have been that busy the weekend and had more time (to this, I am giving her the benefit of the doubt). All in all, the cake was a moderate success, but brides beware that sometimes a bargain can come back to bite you.

Hi, thank you for taking the time to review, we appreciate all feedback because it makes us better and stronger. Since it has been many year since your wedding I want to wish you a perfect and beautiful marriage. We have changed our contract and now we are asking for 2 emergency contact and double confirmation on the delivery address and those two lines where incorrect in your contract and we had no idea that we had your cell phone as the emergency contact phone for the day of your wedding, I was happy to have delivered your cake still before the reception and to the correct address after calling 5 different site managers. Your wedding helped us respond better and become better, Thank you!
