My wedding cake was amazingly beautiful and delicious. The chocolate fudge filling is fantastic and all of my guests loved it. I would definitely recommend Polly Ann Bakery for your wedding cake. I was very happy when I saw my cake.

I would only give two recommendations. First, insist on dealing with Diane directly. You may have to wait to see her but you will avoid some stress that we had to experience the night before our wedding.
Second, if you want your cake topper a certain way then do it yourself. I ordered my cake topper custom from another country. It was really important to me to keep as a keepsake. It came with a heart shaped platform so the characters wouldn't actually touch the frosting. I didn't bring it to the bakery so it wouldn't get lost. My girlfriend was supposed to place it on the cake but the bakery did it instead. They didn't use the little platform and the frosting stained the characters.

I have my wedding cake provided from Poly Ann Bakery, because it's the cake provider Michael's Tuscany Room packages with. To be honest, when I stepped in the store for the first time , I felt very iffy about this choice; the store is really a old small neighborhood bakery, and we only had fillings in the cake tasting time. I have design background and really want a bakery able to convey my design on the wedding cake, but this just doesn't seem to be able to come from a neighborhood bakery.

However, our wedding cake came out to be a huge success. The manager totally got my idea and vision, and the cake itself is just soooooo tasty!! It's not too sweet, and is nicely balanced. All of our guests love the cake, even my sister-in-law, who usually hates sweets couldn't stop but finished the whole piece :D It's really a great experience for me, and I will definitely have more cake from them later on.

Polly Ann's is SO delicious! All of our guests enjoyed eating the cake and so did I! The cake was absolutely beautiful - I saw the cake during our first dance and couldn't help but comment to my husband on it. The cake decorator was very helpful and we got to taste several flavors.

The bad on-line reputation of Polly Ann's is not what we experienced at all! The bride (me) was going to totally dismiss them from the short list without even trying them - based on the on-line reviews I had seen. Since the groom is a great lover of frosted cake, he wanted a chance to check them out, too. I'm glad we did!

It was no small feat to come out on top of all the choices. There were lots of flavor combinations from which to choose. At our pre-arranged cake tasting, Diane showed us the moistest cake and best frosting of all the ones we had tried, including other bakeries that were "specialty priced." In fact, we found Polly Ann Bakery more than accommodating to our requests without continuously adding on extra fees.

We showed Diane the cake topper ahead of time when we ordered the cake, so they could reckon with the weight of it from the beginning. The plastic cake supports seemed pricey at $40, but we got $30 of it back when we returned three of them. The 4th one was on the top of the top layer and we didn't want to remove it before freezing it, so we didn't get a total refund.

The cake was beautiful and tasted wonderful. Diane and her crew were outstanding. Our Groom's cake was also creatively done. We wanted a train steam engine. We provided a carved cake pan and photo for colors for a concept and left the details to them. They developed a superb train engine!

On our various trips to drop off the cake topper and discuss the groom's cake, we also tried their other bakery items such as the mocha and the vanilla Florentine rolls, frosted sugar cookies and nutty treats - all to our delight. Do not overlook this bakery for your special functions!

This was seriously the best wedding cake I've ever had, and all my guests said so too. I saw a lot of people sneaking pieces home with them at the end of the night! The cake was beautiful too, exactly what I'd had in mind, and the baker/decorator was incredibly easy to work with. The ONLY reason I didn't give them 5 stars across the board was because they don't like to deliver outside of San Pedro. I got married in Huntington Beach and didn't mind paying a delivery fee, but they made it very clear that they'd rather we pick the cake up ourselves. We did end up picking it up (it was separate tiers so it was easy to move) and it worked out well, but it would have been nice if they had been a little more accommodating. But the cake itself was absolutely perfect, and if you're getting married in San Pedro or don't mind picking it up yourself I'd say you have no reason to hesitate going with this bakery.

My husband and I had no idea about what we wanted in our wedding cake. We walked into Polly Ann's, sat down and a nice woman served us a bunch of different flavors, we looked at a bunch of photos of beautiful wedding cakes, and literally made our decision in one minute! After trying all the flavors of their moist and delicious cake, we were hooked! We pointed out the shape and designs we liked from her photo album and suddenly our wedding cake was chosen and every detail written down.

On the day of the wedding, we could not believe how amazing our wedding cake looked and tasted!!!
