Pretty Please Bakeshop made the cake for our August 2013 wedding in Sonoma Valley. Alison and her team came recommended through our coordinator, who had met with her and seen some of her gorgeous cakes. Alison was very accommodating when we made our one planning trip out to California before the wedding, and sat with us through a tasting where we got to try a number of flavors.

The cake definitely turned out to be delicious (half salted caramel, half chocolate with raspberries and hazelnut mousse), but I think that was secondary to its beauty. They really did a wonderful job bringing our ideas to life, and it fit perfectly with the setting and decor. It was also delivered on time and in good shape, even all the way from San Francisco.

In November 2012 we travelled from Auckland, New Zealand to San Francisco to get married at City Hall. Alison made our wedding cake. We designed our cake with Alison when we met and taste tested in early 2012. When we saw our cake on our wedding day we were stunned! It was just absolutely beautiful and so intricately done. We didn't even want to cut it (was two luggage cases with a luggage tag) with roses:) Thank you Alison for all the time and energy you put into making our wedding cake! We had so many amazing compliments from our guests about it and it tasted amazing too (one layer banana bea and one layer chocolate chip) xo

Alison was great to work with. I had a vision of how I wanted my cake to look and the final product was exact to what I pictured. We signed with her about a month and a half to our wedding and she was hands on deck no questions asked. Her cakes were delicious and moist and she has a great variety of flavors. I would definitely do business with her again and would recommend her services to anyone.

I like Alison because she's very professional. She returns emails promptly, listens to what you're looking for in a design, comes up with really nice sketches, is flexible with last minute changes to orders, and makes yummy cupcakes and wedding cakes.

We knew from the cake tasting that her cake tasted a little drier and was a bit more crumbly compared to other vendors, but we went with that. On our wedding day, the cake was a little dry and crumbly, but her cupcakes were moist. The flavor was good, not too sweet, and the cake looked fabulous. My husband and I just adored it. Thanks Alison!

Alison from Two for Two cakes was prompt and professional at our meeting. She offered ideas when we were designing my cake and was very knowledgeable. The cost was average and on par with all the other places I checked out.

We chose a 3 layer cake: one layer of chocolate (everyone’s favorite), one layer of white w/strawberry filling, and one layer of lemon. While the decorations and display were beautiful and the flavors were tasty, the consistency of the cake itself was dry and crumbly and not moist at all. We were unable to present our guests with a nice slice of cake; most guests received a plate of crumbles.

Alison told us the cake crumbled because it was not left to return to room temperature before we sliced it. However, the cake was set up for display at approximately 3:30pm and we did not cut it until 9:00pm (plenty of time for the cake to return to room temp). Additionally, I tried the top tier of the cake at 1:00am, yet it was still crumbly and dry.

At my original meeting with Alison, the sample cakes were also dry and not moist. I asked her if the cake would be better (in regards to texture) and she assured me my cake would be baked the day before my reception and would be better than the samples. Alison told us the samples we tried had been baked about a week previously and frozen, which is why they weren’t very moist.

Unfortunately, because my cake was dry and crumbly, I have to give my review of “value for cost” 2 stars out of 5.

Overall, Two for Tow Cakes was professional; prompt; courteous; the decorations were beautifully done; but the quality of the cake was not up to standards. Alison handled our complaint with professionalism and cooperation and has returned partial compensation for the services.
