I'll divide my experience with Sweet Lady Jane into pros and cons since I want to talk about the whole process. We went to the store in Santa Monica, so this applies specifically to that location.

Pros:
-The tasting was great. We got to try 3 different flavors and the bakery manager was very helpful in listening to our ideas and working to get the design just right.
-The cake was absolutely delicious! I've heard from multiple wedding guests that it was the best cake they've ever had. We chose three square tiers of White Chocolate Raspberry, and it turned out beautifully.

Cons:
-It was nearly impossible to get a straight answer out of anybody. After we finalized the design, I was told that our choice of cake might be a problem and that we may need to pick a different flavor. (This was never mentioned at the tasting at all.) I asked if the cake could be delivered at a later time so that it wouldn't be sitting out for hours. I was told about ten times that they would "check to see if it's possible" and never received a final answer until the day before the wedding. They will not deliver any later than 4:30 pm.
-They asked for a 50% deposit over the phone and told me they were unable to send me any kind of receipt or contract for services. I eventually went to the bakery in person to ask for a copy of the invoice. While it was worth it in the end, the cake was very pricey (over $11 per slice) so if your budget is tight, just consider how important the cake really is to you.

Overall delicious cake, but exhausting run-around leading up to the wedding. In the future I would use them again, but would probably pick a pre-made cake instead of doing a custom order.

We had a wonderful cake tasting with Bonnie and the staff was such a pleasure to deal with. With where we're getting married our cake is apart of the overall package. So I took the time went online to look at the designs and flavors. We decided on the White Chocolate Raspberry, which is stunning just to look at. I can also highly suggest their Hazelnut Mousse cake, which I'll be getting for my birthday in November. Their cakes are moist and don't leave you feeling like you have food coma. You also have the option of ordering items online, which as well can come in handy. If your looking for a bakery that will hear you out and offer wonderful suggestions.. Seriously look no further.

Out of the 5 bakeries I tried, this place really stands out as far as quality and taste. They cost a little more but they provide professional quality cakes that cannot be matched anywhere else. They work tirelessly to provide you with the wedding cake of your dreams and even gave me a lot of money saving options as well as many different design options. A custom cake designed off a drawing on a piece of paper came to life on my wedding day and I cried tears of unimaginable joy when I saw it. They earned my loyalty for life and I will be ordering my baby shower cake from them as well!

Our wedding cake was delicious! I had an idea of the cake design, and it turned out perfect! We worked with Sabrina in the whole process. She was very helpful and responsive. Many of our guests commented on the cake- how wonderful it looked and how tasty it was.

We're really old school. We wanted a wedding cake like our parents had...white with all the icing flowers and little people standing on the top. While SLJ does do really cool modern cakes, they were the only vendor we could find that had beautiful traditional wedding cakes. We had coconut on the top two layers and the italian wedding cake on the bottom. EVERYONE loved it---the way it looked and tasted. Best part is that, since they're also a regular bakery, my new husband and I can stop by and buy a piece of cake in the flavors of our wedding cake when we feel like it.

We ordered the Italian Rum Wedding Cake, although it wasn't what my husband was expecting being from Boston it was a delicious and beautiful cake, not overly sweet which we appreciated.
