GORGEOUS WEDDING CAKE!!! I am so thankful I found Nancys pastries.. and Sean the owner is wonderful !!. I must have gone to ten cake tastings and none of the cakes tasted any good and the service at the tasting was horrible. Then we went to Nancys and everything tasted amazing!!! He gave us huge slices in all flavors and even a cup of coffee that was super amazing.. He took his time with us and explained everything and answered all of our questions. I brought a picture of a cake i wanted and he said they would be able to do it and even deliver on easter since my wedding was easter day and they didnt even charge us more holidays which other places were. I didnt have any problem getting in touch with him after ordering the cake he responded promptly to all my calls or questions. The day of the wedding the cake arrived on time to the venue and the cake looked FABULOUS!!. It was perfect exactly like the picture I had given him !!! I got sooo many compliments on how beautiful the cake was and how delicious it was!! Everyone was telling me they loved the wedding cake soo much . I was extremely happy that Sean gave me the most beautiful wedding cake and it was perfect exactly what I wanted !! I couldnt be happier and I cant wait for my next even that I need a cake i will definitely come back to Nancys!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH SEAN AND NANCYS PASTRIES!!!

We have nothing but good things to say about Pastries by Nancy. A wedding cake is important and we made a great choice by hiring them. We received great customer service. The cake was delivered on time and it was beautiful. Most of all, it tasted great. We had one layer of red velvet and two layers of chocolate cake with fresh strawberries and buttercream icing. Our guests asked us "why wasn't there more cake?" We definitely recommend Pastries by Nancy for any event, but especially a wedding.

Or venue's dinner package included the cake and they gave us a list of the bakeries that they worked with. My wife and I went to see just two of the 4 listed and Shawn was by far the easiest to work with. Night and day between the two, the other bakery was kind of like, "We are busy, we only do a certain number of cakes, you have to bring us your cake topper, and u have to drop off the cake stand back to us after your wedding, you pick three flavors to sample." Where as Shawn was the complete opposite. He brought out a huge platter of cake with samples of all his cakes, he told us to leave the cake topper at the venue and his staff will put it on that day, and that we can leave the cake stand at the venue and he'll pick it up the next day. The day of the wedding, cake looked good to me, but the wife thought it wasn't quite what she wanted. But it tasted great, so good that a lot of our guests asked for seconds.

Everyone loved the cake! The cake came out beautiful, and it didn't need the help of that inedible fondant that many bakeries rely on now to give it that solid put together look. Our guests told me how delicious it was. Many even had seconds. Thank you Shawn for delivering on the cake we wanted. You did not disappoint.

we ordered white cake with bavarian cream filling. The cake was great. I'm still getting comments from guest on how good the cake was. The staff was patient, curtious and helpful. I'm definately using them for all future events and planning on ordering the same cake for our 1st anniversary.

Our wedding cake came with our package provided by Altadena Town and Country Club. My husband and I went to Pastries by Nancy for our first and last cake tasting because we were happy with what Shawn provided for us. Our cake tasting consisted of a huge platter with a slice of vanilla, chocolate, marble, lemon cream, red velvet, and some fresh fruit (if you want fresh fruit with your wedding cake, it is extra). My husband and I immediately were drawn to the lemon cream and marble cake.

As far as designs go, Shawn has a few books with photos of cakes of different designs. Make sure you clarify which cake designs are included with the package and which are extra. The more intricate the design, the more likely there will be an extra charge to it. Luckily, my husband and I like the simpler design anyway, so it worked out. We just needed to get the blue ribbon to Shawn to put around each tier. Also, Shawn is a tell-it-like-it-is kind of guy, which I liked because he kept it real. He didn't use a sales consultation on me and even encouraged me to try different bakeries. I can see how his attitude might be off putting to some people, but I like his candidness and honesty.

On the day of the wedding, the cake was delivered on time. The Altadena staff were great with making sure it was put at the right place without distracting from the wedding. The cake looked amazing! I put my bouquet on the cake table, which added a nice decorative touch to it.

As for the taste, I had so many guests ask where I got the cake from. Some people were even trying to get 2 slices because they liked it that much! I definitely recommend this bakery!

All I got to say is that my cake was delicious!!! I got the vanilla cake with bavarian cream and it was so moist and not overly sweet. Asians usually don't like wedding cakes but they loved mine. Even a week after my wedding, the cake was still moist and delicious! I am so happy that they were one of the contracted vendors through my venue.

The cake was great. But the service was TERRIBLE. We were set up with the man who works there (forget his name), not Nancy, she was unavailable at the time. He would not stop trying to go back on the quote he gave us, giving us a terrible attitude. On top of this, the day of the wedding we had a couple go pick up the cake. He had told us to only bring the amount of dry ice he had instructed, he said, "We will take care of all the rest." The day of, he said he would not do anything! The couple we sent to pick up the cake was frustrated! After a lot of arguing, he finally packed the cake, LIKE HE ORIGINALLY SAID HE WOULD. Yummy cake, TERRIBLE SERVICE. If it's worth it to you, go for it.

We worked with Shawn to get the perfect wedding cake. We visited about 4 bakeries before selecting this vendor. The cake was actually very good, and it also looked beautiful. We found them via the venue. We had less flexibility since we worked via the venue but our experience was great.
