Pennington Cakes baked our Bride and Groom's cake for our wedding. They did a fantastic job. The cakes were super moist, EVERYONE was wondering who baked them. My brides cake was a 4 tier cake, so we had red velvet, white, and chocolate, (top tier for anniversary cake). Groom's cake was yellow cake with chocolate ganache- may sound simple but the flavor was amazing! Also, they were reasonable. Our wedding was in Austin and we checked out many vendors in the Austin area, yet Pennington Cakes in San Marcos topped all the bakeries in Austin- price and just delicious, moist cakes! Most definitely recommend them.

Penningtons did an amazing job on our cake! They went through the tasting with us and showed pictures to help guide me to my perfect cake. On the day of our wedding, they were swamped with college graduation but they still showed up on time and gave us great service. They decorated our cake with fresh flowers, which were provided by our florist making it look gorgeous. Our cake was a white with raspberry filling and was delicious! I'm so happy we chose them.

Our wedding cakes were amazing, not only were they beautiful but extremely delicious! My cake was a gorgeous 5 tier with beautiful mermaid scales going up the cake husband wanted his cake to be a Yeti ice chest, they delivered! Not only did it look exactly like a yeti ice chest, but they added fake ice cubes and a red fish coming out of the cooler. His cake was a huge hit at our wedding. Great friendly service with beautiful and great tasting product! My family has been using them for years and will continue to!

We loved our cake! Since we live in Boston, we were unable to come in for a cake tasting before choosing Pennington's for our wedding. However, we hired them based on all of their amazing reviews, and they were definitely right! After a 20-minute phone consultation with Steven, we placed our order. The cake was absolutely DELICIOUS and looked just like I imagined it would! Our wedding coordinator saved the top tier for us to enjoy on our anniversary, but the cake was honestly so good that we couldn't wait. We invited a few friends back to our hotel and polished off every last crumb the same night! Oops! ;) Thank you for your beautiful and yummy work!

It was Thursday 12/17/15 and I realized I forgot a crucial part of my wedding...the CAKE!!! I heard about Pennington's Cakes through wedding wire and saw all the good reviews so I called them Thursday afternoon. Even though it was very short notice I called and was transferred to Stephen. He was extremely helpful knowing I was getting married in less than one week. I didn't go to any consultations or taste their cakes. I got off their Facebook website and asked if I could get it exactly like that and when they delivered it, it was even prettier than the one I saw. When it was time to cut the cake I was extremely excited because I couldn't wait to taste it. When I had the first taste it was amazingly delicious!! The top part of the cake may not even make it for my husband's and I one year anniversary because it was that good!! I would definitely recommend Pennington's Cakes to anyone who is having an event or even just to satisfy their sweet tooth. I live four hours away from San Marcos and I will definitely drive the four hours to get another taste of their cakes!!!

Pennington’s was recommended by a close family friend who used them for their own wedding. Stephen, the owner, did a tasting with us and was very helpful. My fiancé and I aren’t into anything super sweet and to our pleasant surprise, their sugar-free icing was exactly what we were looking for! They were easy to work with, had delicious cake and were very reasonably priced. I changed my mind on a couple of things during the planning process and they were very easy to communicate with. I showed them what look I was going for and left it up to them and my flower girl to create my cake. I had complete faith that they would do an amazing job, which made it easier for me to relax on the day of the wedding, which was invaluable. I am so happy I used them for my wedding! Kind people and a fantastic product!

I decided to go with pennington's cakes after all the great reviews I have read about them and their services. We met with Stephen for a tasting and I can't even begin to describe how amazing all of the flavors are they offer. We decided to go with Italian creme and they were able to work with me on the cake design I found on pinterest I wanted. Also, my fiance is a game warden and they are able to make camo cupcakes for his grooms cake!
They were so easy to work with and change my order as I have needed so far. I can't wait to taste everything and see how it all turns out.
