We decided to go with Prolific Oven for many reasons, they make delicious cakes and I am a cake snob!!!, the price is reasonable, the service I received from Sara so far has been very good and it is less than a mile from my venue, so was a win-win situation. I will post an update after the wedding and post a picture if allowed! :)

Prolific Oven provided eight cakes for our wedding. We didn’t ask for anything special because their cakes are delicious to begin with. They provided their cakes, delivered on time, with the same great taste we have always loved. They let us sample seven of their most popular cakes ahead of time, and we couldn’t decide so we ended up just getting all of them! Great experience!

Our wedding cake from Prolific Oven was beautiful and delicious. What more can you ask for? If you want some crazy fancy decorations or a fondant creation, this place is not for you. They make beautiful cakes, but they have limited options for decorations. This was fine with us because we wanted a simple, elegant cake. And we wanted it to TASTE GREAT. So often wedding cakes look great but taste mediocre. This will not happen if you get your cake from Prolific Oven. The cake they make for you will be DELICIOUS. Also, their prices are very reasonable and their servings are generous.

It was incredibly difficult to find a cost saving option for cakes in the Bay Area, the most inexpensive tier cake that I could find was about $450 not including the cost to deliver. In the end, I bought 3 Lady Regina Cakes and put them on stands and the cake was absolutely amazing - total cost - $100! Also, we got a cake tasting at the Palo Alto Store. They were incredibly hospitable and we are so lucky to have found such a wonderful bakery that was accomodating to our needs. Go with the creamcheese icing - you won't be sad!

My finance and I recently did a cake tasting at the Prolific Oven in Palo Alto and we were very pleased with the cakes and service overall. I have had their cakes before for birthday parties, etc., and have always been impressed with the freshness of their products. Their cakes are always moist and a bit more dense than other cakes I've had. They also have a good selection of cake-types, including lemon-poppy-seed and carrot (our favorite!) However, Prolific Oven doesn't seem to have as many options for fillings/frosting as other bakeries specializing in wedding cakes. All their cakes use cream cheese frosting (which comes in vanilla, chocolate, mocha, or rum-flavors), which is delicious but *very* sweet. Also, the decor options are limited to fresh flowers and their delivery fee was steep ($100 to go to Skyline Blvd). Anyway, we are tasting cake from 2 more places, but right now our plan is to go with Prolific Oven for a cake, and supplement our offerings with some other slightly less-sweet dessert options.

The cake was amazingly delicious! But, the staff is rude, unprofessional. When I went to confirm a week before they couldn't find my order, then they almost doubled the price (we fixed that), and on the wedding day, the delivery man came to my room as I was getting ready for my wedding and asked me to pay $3 for parking! But, the cake was yummy.

As soon as I tasted the cake at Pro O years ago I knew I would use it for my wedding! Their chocolate cake defines all others, their orange almond torte is subtle and exquisite, and a newer flavor- Lady Baltimore- is perfect white cake. I am not a great carrot cake fan but my fiance loves their carrot cake. They don't do a lot of fancy decorating- fresh flowers, and simple designs but good cake is my goal.I highly highly recommend them.

The chocolate rum cake is our favorite - and we ordered a LOT. Not the traditional wedding cake, but the tier-stack cake and to sheet cakes were made to perfection with a slight modification requested on our part. The bakery was also very very helpful in assisting my in-laws with loading the cake into their vehicles and providing ample protection for transportation (as the destination for these cakes was Oakdale, CA - a 2 hour drive). Thank you! The cake has gone down throughout our friend and family circles as the best wedding cake ever!

The cake was delicious, we wanted our wedding cake to come from Prolific Oven as it is our favorite local bakery and we were thrilled to have their carrot cake for our guests. That being said, the week before our wedding I called to finalize the cake design and total guest number (shouldn't someone reach out to me for all these confirmations?) and the person we spoke with said he couldn't find our order. There was no need to freak us out, but he was pretty blunt and rude about not knowing our order. We just had to call the next day to speak with the manager who had our order, but not the best experience for a bride.

Delicious cake! The tasting was fun and Sara had very nice ideas (without trying to upsell us). They delivered our cakes to the venue on time and they tasted great on the wedding day. We thought it was a great value. We ordered 150 servings for our 155 person wedding and ended up with about 100 extra servings - I think their serving size is a bit generous!
