I contacted Pennington's Cakes about three weeks before my wedding. That's when I learned that people order their wedding cakes months and months in advance and that they go in for consultations to make informed decisions. Three weeks before my wedding, I had no time left to drive to San Marcos for a consultation, but Mr. Stephen made the time to have my consultation over the phone. I emailed him a Pinterest picture of the wedding cake I wanted, I mailed him actual ribbons matching my wedding theme and ...voila! I had exactly the cake I wanted arrive punctually on the day of my wedding. To top it off, they had the best prices I could find in the San Marcos area. Clearly, they know what they're doing. I highly recommend their services.

Their website is so easy to navigate and it was so convenient to set up a tasting. The only thing that was difficult was choosing which cake to go with because they were all delicious! I gave them a picture of what I wanted the design to be and they by far exceeded my expectations. It was beautiful and tasted so good, it completed my wedding! Thank you so much!

All I have to say is that they did a very amazing job on my wedding cake. I loved everything about it. It was colorful and it was way more than what I expected it to look at. It was worth every penny! Everyone that talked with at the wedding just loved it and just giving me compliments. I will definitely be going back to get cakes from them. Especially since everyone that the cake was so delicious that they accidentally cut into our top tier and I was hoping to save that for our first year anniversary. I'm going to have to go back and re-order my top tier!

Absolutely LOVED Pennington's Cakes! My husband and I recently just got married in March and couldn't have been more happier with Pennington's! The cake was so delicious, my cake was strawberry swirl and my husbands was chocolate. We also had a desert table with mini cheese cakes, cake pops and cookies, and everything was delicious! Not only was it delicious but also very affordable! I highly recommend them

Also, just FYI, my wedding was a lady to a lady and I felt very comfortable there and they didn't bat an eye. Very professional and accepting.

30 years ago when my parents got married, they had Pennington's do their cake. They also did our cake for our wedding a few months ago and the cake was amazing. It was sooooo good that there wasn't any left except for the top of the cake which we kept. I'm not really a cake person, but their cakes were absolutely fantastic and I have recommended them to friends who are getting married.

All I can say is "WOW"!!! My daughter had not one, but a dozen different cakes for her wedding. She wanted to have an old fashioned church social cake bar, and Pennington's made it happen. She asked for cakes that were not part of their normal inventory -- no problem. And each and every one of them was delicious!! Our guests were sampling two, three, four and more.....and gushing about how moist and tasty all of the cakes were. We had ordered enough cake to serve about 240, about 75 more than we expected and by the end of the evening, nearly all of the cake was gone! We adjusted the quantity, size and flavors of the cakes right up until the wedding and Pennington's was great to work with. They put the finishing touches on the cakes on site and everything looked wonderful. Best cakes ever, you can be sure we'll be using them for future events.

The wedding cake was beautiful and delicious!!! Our groom's cake was a Bulldog and it is the best groom's cake I've ever seen, and not just because it was ours!!! It looked so real and precious!!! The staff was friendly and the cakes were well priced. We went to several other bakeries to try them out as well, but Pennington's was the best bang for the buck!

I absolutely LOVED my cakes! I was extremely pleased with my cake vendor and have gotten SO many compliments about the cake tasting FABULOUS. I even had a friend at the wedding choose to have her cakes for her wedding done at the same place. I changed my order SO many times and the owner was extremely helpful in helping me decide what I needed while also making the cake gorgeous. I didn't really like the figures on my grooms cake, but they did a great job for making them themselves! The cake arrived at the perfect time and everything about it was wonderful! Thank you!

Pennington’s Cakes were absolutely wonderful! Both the bride and grooms cakes were exactly what we envisioned and we mouthwatering. I cannot share one single complaint because I honestly do not have one. They arrived on time if not earlier, added flowers, had great communication, was able to do special designs for the grooms cake, and was patient enough with me (the bride) who didn’t know what she wanted for her cake. My husband and I are planning on having them make a smaller version of our cakes for an anniversary or other special event because they were so good and being the bride and groom we didn’t get to eat all that much the day of our wedding. Thank you Pennington’s Cakes!

Stephen was so great to work with. He really made the entire process easy. My husband and I met with Stephen to discuss the cake and not only did he help us with suggestions but ensured that our cake was not just beautiful but original. The cake was so delicious, I literally still dream about it. I have already told my husband I want to order a small cake next time we are in the area. The service was great and he is very professional, he was totally on the ball with everything and also made us feel like very valued customers. Our guest RAVED about the cake. Thanks to Stephen for his quality work!! I can't wait to get another cake from Pennington's!!

I am so happy that I chose to go with Pennington's Cakes. My mom and I went to the store to meet with Steve. He sat down with us and listened to exactly what I wanted. He is a very genuine man and extremely easy to communicate with. They were very flexible with me when I had to change the wedding date and the venue. The cakes turned out exactly as I imagined and described to Steve. They were so tasty and I got many, many compliments from my friends and family. The grooms cake ...was gone within minutes. It was a chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache filling. The brides cake was multi-layered. The first layer was an Italian cream and the second layer was white with a pineapple filling and the top layer (one year anniversary layer) is the Italian cream. I highly recommend this company. They deliver exactly what they promise and I felt very confidnent that my cakes would be great and arrive on time and they did.

Our cakes were gorgeous and delicious! The entire process was so easy from beginning to end with Stephen. My maid of honor saw them setting up, he was there with a level making sure it was perfect. And my boss was sitting at a table near the cake table, she said that she could smell the cake when the breeze was blowing - she was begging for me to bring what little leftovers we had to work the next week! They even looked exactly like the pictures we gave them. I would pick Pennington's again, they were great :)

Hi Steve. We are back from honeymoon and trying to cope with the fact that our beautiful wedding is behind us and we have to rely on memories. Your cakes were a huge hit! Our friends and family are still talking about them to this day. Not only were they beautiful and the Texas cake so cute and fitting, but the taste was excellent. As you can imagine, David and I didn’t get much of it during the wedding but we took some pieces back to the T Bar M and ate it for breakfast the following morning. It was outstanding. I will never forget eating your cake for breakfast the morning after our wedding and loving every minute of it.

Thanks so much for doing exactly what we asked. The cakes could not have been any more perfect. We are already planning to stop in and get a bite of cake next time we are in town. Until then, take good care and nice job!

I was so impressed with my wedding cake from Pennington's Cakes! I planned my wedding from out of state so my mom was able to make it to a testing but I never even spoke with this vendor. However, I could not have been more pleased with the ease of everything. My mom enjoyed the tasting and the baker reflected everything I could have wanted! When i saw my wedding for the first time on the wedding day, I almost cried. It was BEAUTIFUL!! We bought purple ribbon and they lined it around the bottom of each tier (there were 3 tiers) and he added flowers from my florist. When we did the cake cutting and tried it for the first time we were in heaven. It was DELICIOUS! I got 3 layers: 1) vanilla cake with pineapple filling (this is the one I had...so light and fluffy, very yummy! 2) vanilla with chocolate ginoche (spelling??) cream filling and 3) vanilla with raspberry filling. My guests raved about it! I would highly recommend this vendor for your wedding or special occasion!

We ordered two cakes: a three-tiered white cake with lemon filling and a plain angel food cake. (my husband is a die-hard fan of angel food, so he insisted on a second cake.) Choosing the cake was tough, though--all the flavors we tried were delicious, especially the white with pineapple filling.

The cakes were delivered and set up right on time, which was a huge comfort on the big day. I didn't have to worry about them for a moment.

The three-tiered cake came out beautifully decorated exacty as I imagined it, and it tasted even better than it looked. It was perfect all around, and I'm already lookig forward to our first anniversary, when we will pull the top tier out of our freezer! (The angel food cake was fabulous as well, and my husband was pleased as punch that Pennington's was willing to make his favorite in addition to our wedding cake.)

I highly recommend Pennington's! If you're looking for a delicious, flavorful cake and a no-stress wedding experience, this is your place.

Thanks again!!

My cakes were PERFECT! All I had to do was give them an idea of what I wanted and they made it exactly they way I wanted! My wedding cake was beautiful and the groom's cake is still being talked about.

I have not only used them for my wedding, but for my brother's birthday and my cousin's sweet sixteen cake as well. Very pleased with them. They go outof their way to make the cake look beautiful and meet all the needs. They customized my brother's cake according to my preferences and it turned out amazing. Very very pleased.

They did an awesome job on my wedding cake! Looked and tasted fantastic! The price we paid was a lot less than I expected! Just had a little misunderstanding on their part with our first appointment so we came in and had to reschedule, but we got some free goodies that day for the mishap. Overall I will definitely use Pennington in the future.

The staff and the head baker, Stephen, at Pennington's was fantastic! They were so helpful in finding me what I wanted since I was a bit unsure and they made my husbands cake one of the best I've seen. It was even better than a picture I provided them with! They were very professional, extremely friendly, and perfectly on time with everything. I will always go to them for every special occasion cake. I highly recommend them!

All of our cakes were delicious! The different flavors in the cake kept the guest guessing what flavor they would get. All were wonderful. The grooms cake was done in the shape of a bulldog and was absolutely the talk of the wedding! It was great! The only cake that didn't meet our expectations was the birthday cake we ordered for our granddaughter. It was poorly decorated, but it tasted great!

Thanks for the review Suzie! I'm so glad Becky and Neal loved their cakes! Please pass on our blessings to them. We apologize for the Tres Leches cake, iced in the traditional style. The instructions for the birthday cake were separated from the wedding cake order, and we failed to decorate as requested. Please contact our shop for a full refund of the birthday cake!

Cake was very good! We saved our top tier but ended up eating it a month later. I brought in a sketch of what I wanted it to look like, and they followed it exactly. They also provided samples so I knew I was picking the right flavor. They also worked with us when it came to picking a size that would fit on our family's 10" antique cake stand, but would still be enough to feed all our guests. Thank you so much!

Thanks, Tasha! We had fun making sugar diamonds for the bridal cake and the Playstation 3 grooms cake! The venue was amazing and we were honored you chose us for your celebration. Many, many happy years together to you and Hunter.

Pennington has the best wedding cake I have ever eaten. The cake was beautiful. He did a great job with the flowers provided as well. We had so many compliments on how great the cake tasted. You can't go wrong with Pennington.

My family has been using Pennington's cakes for every big event since my sister's high school graduation, and they are phenomenal. I could rave about how tasty their cakes are for days! Their buttercream is sweet but not overpowering, the cake is so light and fluffy, and their fillings are to DIE for! Lana was very easy to work with and is incredibly professional. After a time mix-up for our cake tasting (as my now-husband hadn't tried all the fillings yet), Lana was more than willing to make it up to us. Since we couldn't travel back for a while, Lana said she would throw in an additional item at no cost, as we couldn't fit in our scheduled tasting. We opted to have our monogram/logo created for the top tier in royal icing, normally an additional $10 cost. Lana was such a dream to work with, creatively speaking. I only wish I could post a photo! I created a pattern from the engraving on my ring for the piped on icing, and Lana executed it perfectly. The cake was incredibly delicious, and our lemon filling wonderfully tart. I can't complement her enough!

Pennington's exceeded our expectations in providing a gorgeous and tasty wedding cake but also a one of a kind groom's cake. Our reception was too feed well over 300 guests and the cake's were the only things completely devoured. The red velvet and white cake with raspberry filling were an excellent choice for alternating tiers on the wedding cake. The groom's cake was a life-size replica of my husbands bass guitar which everyone loved.

Stephen at Pennington's Cakes made the entire process easy and fluid. He created a whimsical, simple design that fit perfectly with our wedding day vision. He happily used one of my mother's antique cake plates for my wedding cake, which only added to the overall ambiance of our reception. As far as taste is concerned, I've never had a more delicious wedding cake! He was able to make each layer a different flavor, which offered our guests a fabulous variety. I couldn't have been any more impressed with the quality of our cake. I'm only sad that we didn't get to eat more of it!
