At True Confections we design your cake from the inside out. We start with the perfect cake baked with the highest quality ingredients, such as real butter and fresh eggs, in such delectable flavors as Dark Chocolate or Vanilla Bean Butter Cake, Toasted Almond Genoise, or Fresh Carrot Cake. Then we fill it with such delightful fillings as Bittersweet Chocolate Mousse created from the finest imported chocolate and real cream, sweet and tangy Fruit Mousses and Fruit Curds made from the freshest fruits, or rich Cream Cheese Frosting made with luscious cream cheese. The cakes are finished with your choice of ethereal Buttercream, satiny Fondant, or luxurious White Chocolate Wrap. Then we decorate the cake to reflect your personal style and taste with fresh flowers, hand-molded white chocolate or sugar flowers, fresh fruits, ribbons, or white chocolate drapes and swags. Your stunning creation will be a focal point of your reception. Judy Chadwick, a former paralegal and banker has been creating elegant, delicious custom wedding and special event cakes since 1995. She studied at the California Culinary Academy where she earned a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts. She worked for many years at a number of fine Bay Area bakeries before finally fulfilling her dream and starting True Confections. She is passionate about making cakes that are as beautiful as they are delicious, using only the finest and freshest ingredients. She loves creating cakes that are a centerpiece to a wedding or special occasion celebration, making your event beautiful and memorable. Your experience at True Confections begins with your complimentary personal consultation. You will be treated to a selection of scrumptious cake samples served on fine china. Judy will discuss the style and theme of your wedding, paying particular attention to your ideas until she is satisfied that you will have the cake of your dreams. Read less

Judy was wonderful to work with! I initially gave into WIC pressure and thought I would go with a higher profile bakery, but after several attempts to get them to call me back and I gave up and went back to Judy. She was responsive and helpful and the cake was beautiful and delicious. Unfortunately the only bite I got of it was during the cake cutting because my guests snatched it up immediately! So I'm looking forward to getting our anniversary cake because I get that one all to myself. :)

I would definitely recommend Judy and True Confections.

I was very happy with our wedding cake. We wanted something special and unique made, and Judy was all over it. Her cakes are very good, and her pricing is reasonable. We had our florist bring some flowers to put on the cake, and Judy did a very good job. The only issue was that we had a smaller cake and then supplemented it with a sheet cake. During the wedding, the catering manager asked me to confirm that we were supposed to have a sheet cake - the vendor had forgotten to bring it. They called her and she immediately brought it, so we just had cake a little later, but that seemed like a pretty big mistake. I would still recommend her. We had compliments on our cake and it looked beautiful!

Judy was a pleasure to work with. Our wedding cake was perfect, exactly how we wanted it and it looked just like the picture that we sent Judy earlier on. We got the lemon cake and it was the best lemon cake and cake! period!- that we've ever had. Judy was open to our ideas and made us a fig jam for one of the layers. It was perfect and absolutely delicious!! Thank you so much Judy for the beautiful and yummy memorable cake! :)

We had Judy do our wedding cake and overall we're very happy!! We moved to the area with only a month to plan our wedding, and as a result we didn't have time to do a tasting nor did we ever meet her - we did everything by email/phone and it worked out fine. Judy was very gracious about our wacky plan to rent (separately) a "dummy cake" for our display. She made 2 sheet cakes for us, a vegan carrot cake for most guests, plus a smaller gluten-free vegan carrot cake. Our guests RAVED about the cake - even the big time carnivores who had NO idea it was vegan and were even asking her name for their next event! So overall I would say we are very satisfied customers. The feedback I have could've easily been eliminated if we'd done a tasting, so I can't fault Judy too much. There were 3 issues (hopefully this will be helpful to anyone thinking of a vegan/GF cake!): When we originally spoke, I told her that we "can't stand buttercream frosting" and wanted a more "cream cheese frosting" with our carrot cake. But in later discussions, when I was on the fence as to whether to do a vegan/traditional cake, she told us that the two were "nearly indistinguishable." I should've known this couldn't possibly be true since real cream cheese is impossible to duplicate. To her credit my guests really had no idea it was vegan. However, as it turns out the BEST vegan cream cheese frosting tastes just like real buttercream frosting. So basically it tasted like a real carrot cake with buttercream instead of cream cheese frosting. No biggie. 2) She warned me that the GF flour has a strange texture, and it was true - but not the usual GF texture I'm used to. Her GF flour mixture is a little grittier than usual, so I might ask her to adjust it if I ever hire her again! 3) The cakes were VERY sweet!! Some of my guests loved this but for us it was a bit much. Again, we could have easily fixed this with a tasting! Overall her service was top notch and I would definitely hire her again!

Judy was great to work with especially since my husband and I had no clue what we wanted for our cake! She had lots of photos of her work and presented many options during our cake tasting. We wanted something unique but simple and she was able to deliver that. She helped us design a hexagon topsy turvy cake, if you can imagine what that looked like. It ended up looking very cool and we were pleased. We had no problems in the actual delivery of the cake and we got lots of good feedback from our guests on the taste of the cake.

Just was amazing.... so professional and willing to hear out our different idea for our cakes. The cakes were delicious! They were the best that we tasted when we were searching for a bakery and the price was the best.... which was just icing on the cake... LOL. I would use her again and again. Thank you so much Judy!
