I love the cake tasting session with the chef. It is eye-opening. I kept reminding my guests to enjoy the cake at the wedding. The feedback are all positive and although there is some leftover, guests (and even myself) were eager to rake home and enjoy the cake again!

Bala is amazing! He created individual cakes for each of our guests at our wedding with hand made chocolate flowers and a chocolate basket weave wrap. Our guests still talk to us about how much they loved the cakes!

In addition, Bala created the most delicious gluten-free, sugar-free cake I have ever tasted for myself and other guests who are gluten intolerant and/or diabetic. The "special" cake was as beautiful as the gluten cake and according to my husband who could taste both, it tasted just as amazing. The GF version was so incredible that my husband and I purchased a 6" version for our dating anniversary, and my husband's aunt purchased one for her daughter-in-laws birthday a couple weeks later.

Finally, Bala himself is a delight. He went out of his way to source gold disks to enhance the presentation.

My husband and I hope he never retires so that we can continue to order cakes from him for our special occasions!

Chef Bala is a one man whirlwind of beauty and favor spun into your dream cake! He is so kind and soft spoken, while his cakes make a powerful statement. Our Hazelnut and caramel buttercream cake alternated with a deep dark red velvet with marscapne cream. What a flavor explosion. All of this was hidden beneath his glorious white chocolate woven cloth. A miracle of flavor and grace. LUCKY US! Thank you Bala, you are THE Cakemaker!

Chef Bala was easy to work with and very professional. He was flexible and answered all of my questions. We had a 3-layer almond cake with passionfruit filling and a beautiful draped white chocolate shell, as well as carrot cake. Everyone seemed to love both! Definitely do the taste testing--it's fun to get to try 5 different flavors of cake and mousse, and it's complimentary! I would absolutely go back to Chef Bala for birthday cakes and anything else.

I actually never got a chance to meet Bala the Cakemaker but out of the dozen cake places me and my wife tried sometimes together, sometimes just her, she ended up choosing Bala the Cakemaker for our wedding at SF City Hall.

The cake was beautiful and arrived with no problems. But more importantly, I'm not a big dessert guy much less a cake fan, so I rarely get excited about cake. But when I had our wedding cake, it was AMAZING. It tasted so good, I ate the whole slice in less then a minute. And my mom, who thinks nothing is ever good unless she makes it, thought the cake tasted great too.

All of the guests said the cake was stunning, which is nice and expected, but what's more impressive is a lot of the guests asked for seconds.

When it's time to get a cake for your celebration, call Bala The Cakemaker, he won't disappoint.

Our cake was DELICIOUS! And not to mention... GORGEOUS! It wasn't easy finding a cake maker for our wedding cake because we didn't have a regular bakery we frequent. I mean, your wedding cake is pretty important right? It's one of those elements that you plan for your wedding where initially you're going by faith. You don't have to worry one bit that your cake from Chef Bala is going to be amazing.

We had a tasting with him about two weeks before the wedding. He had different samplings of cake and cups of the mousse he makes. It was very fun putting different combinations of cake to mousse and seeing which ones we like. Chef Bala was very patient waiting for us to make our decision. He didn't appear rushed at all. I read in a previous review a bride chose a strawberry vanilla combination. It was delicious!

He only charged a minimal amount if you want to have different flavors for each tier. Choosing the ones we wanted wasn't easy!

We went through his portfolio of styles and chose one that was simple and elegant because we had a customized cake topper. All of his designs are beautiful.

We weren't there when he set up, but the cake was there already set up. Most of all, it was delicious! All of our guests raved about the cake. For what we got, $5.50 per slice was well worth it!



Thank you very much Bala for our wedding cake!

Cake tasting was very good and lots to choose from. He is not pushy at all and he suggests his signature cake, do not hesitate to order it. Everyone loved the cake; it was so beautiful and delicious. Everyone was asking for more cake the next day. Luckily he let us choose both favors because it was double the value. We are still savoring his yummy cake. Chocolate chip was the best! Thanks again for a stress free and delicious cake. S&A.

Chef Bala did an amazing job on our wedding cake. From the website I knew I had wanted the signature cake. Seeing the model at his shop confirmed my decision. Being my own wedding aside, this was definitely the best wedding cake I've had. We chose chocolate cake with raspberry mousse filling and carrot cake with cream cheese. Too bad we were so scatter-brained by the time our cake was served; we didn't take the opportunity to fully enjoy the cake. I'm definitely going to the Cakemaker for my anniversary cake!

The one drawback is the fact that because our cake was already paid by our wedding venue. When we went for our cake tasting, it seemed like Chef Bala did not make that extra effort to win our business, since he already has our business. He also is super busy (good for him!), which made email communication sluggish. He did apologize for his delayed responses.

But cons aside, Chef Bala worked his magic and completely delivered through his amazing cake. Thank you!

Chef Bala of the Cake Maker is truly an artist. His work has been featured in "The Knot" with good reason: the cake was beyond delicious and looked beautiful. My husband wanted vanilla bean cake, with vanilla mousse and fresh strawberries, so it tasted similar to a strawberry shortcake. It was outstanding, and everyone raved about it. At the last minute I decided I did want a monogram after all, and he was very accommodating with the changes.
We would like to have him make cakes in the future.

We loved working with Bala for our wedding cake. At times he was slow to respond to my emails but in general everything worked out quite well, and our cake was beautiful and tasty which is all that matters in the end! San Francisco is expensive in general but his prices seemed reasonable compared to the rest. Our cake was unique and had edible calla lilies on it that looked real - guests were very impressed.

Bala is awesome. From the time you meet him you instantly like him. He's a very non-obtrusive person and really listens to what you are looking for. My husband and I saw a cake that we really liked, but thought it was way out of our budget, then we met Bala. We had tasted cakes with about 3 different vendors, but weren't really impressed. Then we tasted Bala's, and knew we found our cake! Not only do his cakes look amazing, they also taste great, and he has a lot of different choices. In a nutshell, Bala provides great quality cakes without the snootiness of other bakeries, that look and taste amazing, at a reasonable price. We actually saved the top tier and can't wait to dig into it. To this day, I still have people tell me that our wedding cade was delish! Thanks Bala!

OMG his cakes are the best! We ordered a capuccino cheese cake, carrot cake, and lemon poppy seed with mango filling and it was the best! My husband and I fell in love right away at the tasting appointment! I love that he has lots of options, I mean, I've never heard of a cappucino cheese cake with white chocolate frosting all over! Those two are my favorite => We had a good chunk of cake left over and I could not resist the tempation, I ate most of the left over cake myself! It really is that delicious! Its not overly sweet, yet its not dull either. The level of sweetness, elegance of design, and quality of cakes are just perfect! He's very attentive to one's needs, works well with everyone, & I would work with him again. He's also on Kabuki Hotel's list of preferred vendors and has been featured on a few wedding magazines as top cake specialist, and he's on the preferred vendor list for a few other wedding planners. Prices are excellent and I would work with him again =>

To this day, my husband still raves about this wedding cake and wishes we still had more left to eat. The cake baker was very professional and worked with us closely to design a offset multi-layered square cake to meet our needs. The vanilla cake with a hint of orange was moist and provided the perfect amount of sweetness. Even a year after the wedding, when we took the cake topper out of the freezer and had a slice, the cake still tasted pretty good. I highly recommend this baker!

The cake we order from Bala...The Cakemaker was the nose amazing and delicious cake I have ever had. It was large enough for at least 100 but fed 50..barely. Our topper is awaiting an occasion like the holidays because it will not make it to our anniversary. We will make The Cakemaker a yearly tradition. YUM!

We booked the Cake Maker after having a piece of cake from a wedding we attended. The cake looked amazing and tasted even better so based on that we knew we were going to book Bala to make our cake without even visiting any other bakeries. My husband and I scheduled our visit to do a cake tasting. The Cake Maker has many unique flavors to choose from. We decided to do a tuxedo cake in his classic design. When we went to pick our cake up two days before the wedding it was just beautiful. Words can not describe how beautiful Bala's cakes are. My mouth literally dropped open when I saw our cake. We picked up our cake to drop off at our venue - with a custom size box that Bala ordered special for our cake at no additional cost so it would fit into our venue's fridge. On our wedding day our cake looked amazing displayed on our cake table and tasted even better. The fondant that Bala creates is thin and actually taste good to eat, not like most fondants. I highly recommend Bala's business the Cake Maker for any wedding cake, you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I scheduled our visit to do a cake tasting. The Cake Maker has many unique flavors to choose from. We decided to do a tuxedo cake in his classic design. When we went to pick our cake up two days before the wedding it was just beautiful. Words can not describe how beautiful Bala's cakes are. My mouth literally dropped open when I saw our cake. We picked up our cake to drop off at our venue - with a custom size box that Bala ordered special for our cake at no additional cost so it would fit into our venue's fridge. On our wedding day our cake looked amazing displayed on our cake table and tasted even better. The fondant that Bala creates is thin and actually taste good to eat, not like most fondants. I highly recommend Bala's business the Cake Maker for any wedding cake, you will not be disappointed. Read less

Bala is great to work with. Not only did Bala make a great tasting cake and it looked beyond amazing. It was one of my favorite things of the wedding. We chose Red Velvet and Tiramisu and both were delicious. Bala made it easy and stress free once we chose him. We picked the design and flavors, 7 months before the wedding. We sent the deposit and forgot about the cake until 2 weeks before the wedding. Bala remembered us, and knew exactly what we asked for as soon as we called. He didn't have to put us on hold to look for paperwork. Trust Bala, we did!!!
