Shirley is one of tbe sweetest! Very professional, very reasonable and the best cakes here in SD. We chose the marble cake and everyone raved about it! I told Shirley I want to have some left over since we were having a gift opening party the next day, it worked out perfect! She was also helpful about ideas in keeping down the cost. We love Shirley and her cakes!

Beautiful, wonderful, delicious - and that's just Shirley herself! The cakes are even better! We met Shirley at a catering fair where my intended fell in love with the amaretto cake. We stayed and chatted with the crew and sampled flavors and within 20 mins, we had decided everything we needed for our 130-guest wedding. Major plus that they were experienced dealing with military, since our wedding and reception were on base on Coronado. I am still getting questions and raves about the amazing cake. Excellent value and very great service! We are going to have to work something out for our anniversary, because that amaretto layer we intended to save was gobbled up - we couldn't resist :)

Best wedding cake ever. From my initial consultation over the phone, I knew that I wanted to have Shirley make our cake. She is very friendly and very sweet. When my husband and I went to the tasting, we brought my maid of honor and bridesmaid. Shirley is just as friendly and energetic in person. The girls insisted they didn't want cake, but when the cakes started coming out, they couldn't resist. Shirley gives pretty big slices of cake for her tasting and not just a small sample, so bring your appetite (and maybe a couple friends!). We chose her Amaretto Poppyseed cake and her French White and Raspberry Swirl cake.
All our guests loved the cake!! So delicious and moist. And pretty too! Best wedding cake ever. We ate our anniversary cake within a week of our wedding (instead of freezing it like we meant to), and Shirley laughed when my husband told her because she said that everyone does that and instead they ask her to bake a small anniversary cake for them.
Her prices are reasonable too. She wasn't the cheapest, but certainly not the most expensive. Considering how good the cake was and the huge response from our guests, it was worth every penny.

We can't say enough good about Shirley THE CAKE LADY. I really don't like cake, so when I was shopping for a cake vendor, I really struggled. Shirley's cakes were the first ones I liked...so many options and all of them were good. She gave us great advice. She even let me come over to taste with some friends. On our wedding day a year ago, she was awesome. She set the cake up, worked with the florist, it was flawless. The cake was amazing. She told us how to freeze the leftovers, too. We followed her instructions to a T. So now, a year later, we contact her to get another cake top so we can have special 1st year anniversary pictures taken. It was beautiful...in the same design as the wedding cake. On Christmas day, we have wedding cake from a year ago (chocolate raspberry) and a new 1st anniversary cake (lemon poppy seed). The cakes were both moist and tasty. We highly recommend Shirley. She is like family to us now! We love her! Not just for her cakes but for how she made us feel...a part of HER family! --Brenda & Jim (married 11-20-2011

Best cake I’ve tasted!! I had first wanted cupcakes, but one conversation and tasting with Shirley and I was sold on cake! Her cakes are unbelievable! She uses so many fresh ingredients! It was so hard deciding which cakes to choose, but I definitely recommend the lemon! She uses fresh lemons and it is pretty much amazing! The wedding cake was just as good as the tasting cake, which shows that bulk orders don’t change the quality. The icing is so yummy and doesn’t melt. She was able to give me exactly the look I was going for. She doesn’t use fondant, which was fine for me. If you are looking for a fondant design, throw it out the window and go for the yummier cake!

Beyond the yummy cakes, Shirley is the sweetest woman in the world! She is hysterical; I wish I could have spent more time with her! She is one of those people you just want to be around.

She made everything so easy and is absolutely your best choice!

You won't get fondant covered cakes from Shirley ... you'll only get the most fresh, delicious cakes you've ever tasted!!

I made a very difficult request of Shirley in terms of the style we wanted for our cake and although it took a little coaxing and creativity on her part, she not only came through ... she exceeded our expectations!!!

We chose two cake flavors: After trying out 5 different cakes at a cozy tasting, my fiance and I fell head over heels for the lemon poppy-seed cake. We also chose the raspberry vanilla cake for guests who might not appreciate the lemon. Both cakes were outstanding!!! Our family and friends raved about the cakes and we had some left over to snack on a few days later.

Shirley makes moist cakes from scratch... she's a pip and very friendly... like a sassy grandma! :) Plan on going in with an appetite and leaving with a full stomach and a new friend!

We will use Shirley for other events as well... can't get enough of her delicious cakes :) YUMMMM

Shirley is the BEST in cakes for Quality, Taste, and Value! My husband and I had no idea what we were getting into when we went to our cake tasting w/Shirley! She greets you like family with a kiss on the cheek and a big hug. Our tastings were very generous portions. We left extremely full and we didn't even eat dinner before or after the tasting! Shirley was never pushy or all about business. She had great conversations with us and still was able to be professional.

On our wedding day our beautiful cake was displayed right next to our sweetheart table. The cake was moist and flavorful, just like it was at our cake tasting! Thank goodness Shirley's prices are affordable, b/c we had 267 guests to serve. I recommend Shirley for her services and b/c she is so pleasant to work with!

I definitely plan on ordering cakes from Shirley for future special events!

Shirley is a delight to meet. She delivers excellence in design, presentation, value and most importantly TASTE! My darling daughter (Bride Meghan) and Groom Jesse thoroughly enjoyed tasting Shirley’s amazing samples. Selecting the flavors was not an easy matter because they are all truly delicious. Shirley’s stories are great. It is obvious that she continues baking wedding cakes because she loves meeting people and participating in memorable passages. Our wedding cake was perfect (complete with the IRISH /seaside) touch. I highly recommend Shirley (the best cake lady ) EVER!!!

Shirley was one of my favorite vendors. She gives you a sweet kiss on the check and hug upon your arrival and departure immediately making you feel like family. Our wedding cake had four flavors and each was raved about by our wedding guests. She even let us "rent" a beautiful pedestal to put the cake on. She doesn't hide anything in a hard to read contract or hidden fees, everything is up front. She is absolutely marvelous!

Our wedding was on 10.22.10 and we have to say Shirley was one of the nicest vendors by far! She is the sweetest lady and really makes you feel important and not just a sell for her. We just knew she was the one we wanted after biting into the first cake!!
We had a small wedding of 55 and selected her to make 2 satelite cakes (one spiced apple and the other strawberry swirl). People marveled at the cake and when we returned from the honeymoon at least a few people we spoke to have stated it was the best cake they ever had at a wedding!

What can I say besides Shirley is fabulous! She was by far my favorite vendor, my husband would agree. From the moment we met Shirley and tasted her cake at a catering faire, we knew who we would use for cake and we were not disappointed. Shirley is a delight, very warm, friendly, she felt like a friend. We had amaretto and lemon poppy seed cake for our wedding and heard many wonderful reviews on the taste, the moistness, and the decor. We had a starfish/beach themed wedding and our cake was more than we could have asked for. Shirley came up with a fabulous idea for the decoration and incorporated my parent's cake topper and my Grandparents' topper into the event ~ something that shocked them. My husband and I were disappointed that we moved away from San Diego and couldn't get an Anniversary cake from her. Not only are Shirley's cakes wonderful, she is a delight, she is also very affordable!

Shirley is the sweetest, spunkiest old lady you’ll ever meet, and she makes a delicious cake. If you’re looking for a fondant masterpiece, she’s probably not for you. She does a nice butter cream, and her sweet spot is simple designs. Her samples are a pretty decent size, so when you go, make sure you haven’t eaten dinner yet.

We ended up getting three different flavors: Double Chocolate (fudge and raspberry filling), Amaretto Poppy Seed, and Caramel English Toffee with almonds. It was delicious and moist. Many guests said it was the best wedding cake they’d ever had. It was more important to us that the cake taste good, than just look good. Lucky for us though, it turned out beautiful too! You can have your cake and eat it too ;)

If Shirley does one thing well, she tries to save you money. We got a three-tier cake and some sheet cakes. We originally thought our numbers were going to be 200. In the last week or so, we found out our final number was 176. Listening to Brenda’s advice we told her we needed cake for about 150.

The amount was perfect. We didn’t have any cake left over! Kind of wish we did, but we’ll probably just order a cake from her on our anniversary so it’s nice and fresh. The Amaretto Poppy Seed is to die for! Mmmm….I get hungry just thinking about it.

I paid her a little over, counting tip and everything. She actually sent me back a check in the mail and told me to save the money. She’s just too nice!

If she’s available, I would definitely book her!

The best tasting wedding cake anyone has ever had! EVERYONE loved our cake. We were able to have 3 different flavors and they were all soo good. The frosting is the best- white and fluffy, not too sweet, but it complements the flavor of the cake perfectly. Good price, too, compared to any other bakery I researched in the area. I found it really inconvenient to have to drive all the way to her house (about 1/2 hour outside of San Diego) for the cake tasting and then to return the cake parts after the wedding... but it was something I was willing to do to have the best wedding cake ever.

Shirley is absolutely just amazing. Her cakes are delicious, and she is hilarious. I asked her to something very different than what she had ever done before for my wedding cake, and she did it. Her cakes are special in the way she makes them, so it is hard to put variation into the frosting, but she knew I really wanted it, and she made it work! It ended up looking beautiful and everyone loved the taste of it! I will be using her for any future cakes I might need!

It ended up looking beautiful and everyone loved the taste of it! I will be using her for any future cakes I might need! Read less

The cake turned out amazing. Everybody loved how it looked and tasted.
It was so much fun to pick the cake out and the various flavors. Shirley is great at what she does. I could not have wished for a better cake.

Shirley is the sweetest old lady you will ever meet! Not to mention her cakes are out of this world. To feed 240 people, I got a 3-tier cake and 2 half sheet cakes for a total of $530 including delivery. Each cake was a seperate flavor and she even made me a small personalized cake just for me! Since, I was so worried I wouldn't get to taste the carmel toffee at my reception.

She is the winner of best vendor on multiple blogs 3 years running, though she's been baking for well over that. If you have not chosen a cake, schedule a free tasting with Shirley! She's the best and so is her French White Raspberry cake!!!
