Parker-Lusseau has been a long time favorite bakery of mine and I was so excited to work with them for my wedding. They are making a special gluten free single tier wedding cake for our display cake (because I am celiac) and a full dessert spread with both gluten-free and regular options! The cake tasting was incredible and they have been so easy to work with!

We ordered our wedding cake from here - not only was it absolutely delicious, but they were so easy to work with! We tried some take-out samples a few months before the wedding, chose the passionfruit and lemon/raspberry flavors, and decided to do 4 round tiers for about 120 guests. Parker-Lusseau took care of the delivery, and voila! Best wedding cake I could have imagined :) (They also provided a box for us to save the top layer for our anniversary.)

We used PL for our wedding cake. The entire experience was fantastic from the efficient cake tasting and ordering process to the final delivery at the venue. Our cake was everything we had asked for, tasted delicious and was presented with style. We recommend PL for all your wedding cake business!

I worked with Anne in setting up a tasting for our wedding. The commute to Monterey from San Jose was very bad. I called to let her know that we have been stuck in traffic so we will be late. I kept her posted on our ETA, we arrived 2 min before they closed. She packaged all of the samples we were going to taste and wrote the name of each on the box next to the pastries.

All of the samples were amazing and so good. My husband and I don't eat dessert but their samples changed our minds. I ordered extra French Macarons because they are so good. It looks like we may have to take a trip to Monterey as I heard these were all eaten by our guest and our guest even spoke about them. Everything was beautiful and good. The wide selection for a dessert is 5 starts.

As soon as I sampled their wedding cakes I knew I had found a cake up to my Austrian standards!! I had trouble deciding on the best flavors. We had one layer of vanilla cake with a lemon raspberry filling, and two layers of chocolate cake with an orange chocolate truffle ganache filling. It was amazing! I made sure to not eat too much dinner so I could have a piece of each kind of cake! Was I the first bride to have such priorities? It also looked adorable. It was ocean themed with house made white chocolate seashells on it. Not a crumb nor seashell was left!

Easiest vendor I worked with for my wedding. Gave them a picture of an idea and they did an amazing job using the idea but creating their own design. The cake tasted great! All of the guests really liked the light lemon flavor with raspberry. Their pricing was fair and they delivered on time with no issues.

Friends in Monterey told us that Parker Lusseau was the best bakery in town and I'm glad they did! We decided on the spot when we did a cake tasting. They are the real deal! and, they have very unique cake options. Our cake was absolutely delicious (I had seconds) and also simply gorgeous. I loved the idea of having local fresh strawberries since they would be in season. So, we decided to do half strawberries w/ fresh cream, and the other half of the cake was passion fruit filling with raspberries. We chose a basic buttercream frosting ( i hate fondant) and they do a beautiful damask type pattern in the buttercream, which was very elegant and a perfect backdrop for fresh flowers. I appreciated their suggestion that we do a 3 tier cake, and then sheetcake to serve our 150 guests, which made the cake much more affordable. I can't wait to eat our top layer for our anniversary! The one *minor* annoyance is that they only take checks. But, this isn't that uncommon in Monterey surprisingly! Thank you Parker Lusseau for our amazing cake!!

I really like the real French macaroons from this place and the coffee is OK.

However, I tried to order a wedding cake from them and I called no less than 7 times. They told me to call back and talk to the owner, so I kept calling. When I finally did get the owner, he told me to call back in 3 weeks. The cake was good, but not worth this effort. If you have ever planned a wedding, then you know that booking things in a timely fashion is very important. I did NOT end up booking with them due to neglect. They lost out on a huge cake order.

Delicious desserts made from real ingredients. I love being in either of their bakeries on Hartnell or Munras in Monterey. Anne is great to work with and Yan (sp?) is actually French . They have a perfect thing going. :)

The cake was fantastic- it was an 8 inch two tiered beautifully textured ivory buttercream with strawberry vanilla bottom layer and chocolate raspberry top layer. Delicious. Still eating it actually! My only complaint is the outer buttercream frosting is a bit too thick and too strange to eat.... But I think this is rather typical of a decorative frosting (thinking fondant...)

We also had 50 macaroons and 50 chocolate petit-fours and little chocolate cups with berries. I never got to try any of these as they disappeared within moments! It was so cool to watch Casey's friends eat macaroons for the first time and be absolutely enthralled. The salted caramel one seemed to be a fav. Everyone was happy even the gluten free folks.

Thank you to Parker-Lusseau for helping make our wedding a success!
