Takes the cake was everything I wanted and needed in a wedding cake vendor. They were responisve to requests for information with up front pricing, their cake was delicious, and they were easy to work with. I ordered the chocolate cake with espresso mouse - yummy! It tastes like a light, not too sweet, almost tiramisu flavor that everyone raved about. They have extensive look books for inspiration, but were able to adapt to the inspiration photos I brought in. Most importantly they will work with your budget and are very affordable.

Takes the Cake really did "take the cake". The cake was delicious and many of my guests commented on the beauty and impressive taste of the cake. Since my husband and I had a modest cake and punch reception we wanted the cake to stand out as a main centerpiece and "Takes the Cake" did not disappoint. Not only did they make a delicious and gorgeous cake, they delivered it, set it up, and even arranged fresh flowers on it for me. They are a cake bakery you can put your full trust into. Thank you TAKES THE CAKE of PASADENA!

We were a little skeptical in the beginning because we asked the Takes the Cake team to make a cake for us that they had never made before. Wasn't sure how I felt about the "trial" run they did for us the week before the wedding, but let me tell you, when this team puts their mind to something THEY GET IT DONE! My wedding cake turned out to be the most BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS cake we had ever seen! It was nothing short of spectacular! We are still getting compliments daily about how lovely our wedding cake was! We are nothing short of appreciative & grateful for the hard work the Takes the Cake team put into making sure our wedding cake was exactly what we wanted. They delivered what they promised, 110%!!! I would definitely recommend them to every bride!

I needed a wedding cake last minute and these ladies came through in a pinch! As their other reviews state they do amazingly decorative cakes but I wanted something very simple and completely elegant. I hadn't realized they didn't use fondant on their cakes until we ate it that evening but it was delicious and beautiful!

Because I have such simple taste it was important that the cake really look perfect since it only had ribbon and a few flowers (we put on later) to decorate it. These ladies, while not always friendly(they are very shy and at times anti social) did do an amazing job on the cake and everyone enjoyed it. My mom will be going back soon for a birthday cake...so we
will definitely be using these ladies again!!

Oh and their pricing...EXTREMELY reasonable!

Takes the Cake makes the MOST beautiful cakes. Our wedding cake was so perfect and absolutely delicious. The cake itself was so moist... even when I finally got to eat a piece that saved two days later!! I would highly recommend Takes the Cake. They are very communicative and helpful, and their cakes are awesome!

Takes the Cake was such a great vendor to work with! Our cake was elegant and beautiful, but even better, it was delicious! We tasted at several bakeries, but this was the clear winner for us. The flavors we chose were chocolate cake with raspberry preserves and chocolate cream, chocolate cake with mocha mousse, and white cake with strawberry preserves and cream cheese mousse. Everyone was telling us how it was the tastiest wedding cake they have ever had, and I agree. I managed to eat my whole slice, even in the middle of the wedding craziness! This bakery was one of our best wedding decisions!

I just wanted to say the cakes at Takes the Cake are probably the most delicious cakes I've ever tasted! We had a layer of the spice cake with cream cheese mousse and a layer of the lemon cake with the raspberry mousse.

We came to them a little on the late side and they were very accomodating with our customized design.

Choosing the right cake was probably the most difficult part of my wedding choices. Since my new husband loves cakes and I don't, I didn't know where to start. I visited over 6 bakeries from Los Angeles to Pasadena. Takes the Cake was the place I felt most comfortable. Their prices were very reasonable as opposed to the other bakeries I visited. They heard me out and gave me four different options to choose from. They made it so easy. And, by the way, their cake was very yummy. I even enjoyed it! I recommend Takes the Cake only if you want options, quality and service.

This is an EXCELLENT vendor, and their cakes are DELICIOUS! My dye on my cake did run a bit, but I think that was because my wedding was outdoors and the cake was in the sun. Great vendor.

We ordered two small cakes (9" 1 tier), chocolate with vanilla mousse and chocolate with coconut filling. They looked great and tasted great too. I would have liked a little more aid when we were picking out the cake, the saleslady just stood there and waited, offering no advice. But to be fair, we didn't specifically ask for help and she was probably just being patient.

We loved our wedding cake from Takes the Cake! It was both beautiful and delicious. They were so patient with us and took time to go over all our options and even take a special request during our tasting appointment. Our guests were wowed by our cake and thought it was delicious and so unique looking! They were a little pricey, but well worth it! We would recommend them wholeheartedly.

I had heard that Takes the Cake can sometimes arrive late, so I had them drop off the cake early. Great tasting, and not overly priced.
