I just wanted a small cutting cake and Twiggs allowed me to get a simple two layer cake for 30 people. It was the smallest wedding-style cake (4 inch tall layers) I could get and the Mexican chocolate flavor is delicious. They also have a tray of cake tastings you can buy that I took home and shared with friends as we decided which one we liked. They were good to deal with and even noticed that my date was wrong in the order form! Which saved me bigtime!

We originally wanted a 3 tier traditional cake but later changed to small 2 tier cake, mini cupcakes and mini fruit tarts. Our order was perfect, the cake looked beautiful, delivery was on time and they were very helpful when I requested changes to my order. Everything was DELICIOUS!!! My favorite is the Mexican chocolate cake! On top of all that, their prices are extremely reasonable compared to other bakeries and they have cake tasting appointments on weekends. I can't wait to go back to Twiggs every year for our anniversary :)

We had both our wedding cake (victorian wedding) and a special secret groom's cake (Mexican chocolate) made by Twiggs and they were fantastic! Everyone we dealt with was so great, fun and easy - this was definitely one of my favorite vendors! Special shout out to Mitch and Gail for being extra awesome and doing lots of hand-holding and keeping the groom's cake a secret up until the reception!!! You guys rock and your cakes are gorgeous and delicious!

We are so happy with our choice to use Twiggs Bakery.

I was shocked all around at how expensive wedding cakes are (especially to feed over 150 people), but we found Twiggs to be reasonable in comparison to others.

We had a great time doing the tastings with Gail. There was no pressure to book, so we really enjoyed the experience. They have quite a variety of cakes to taste and they let you taste every one, free of charge.

We ended up going with a 4 tiered, square, passion fruit cake. It was delicious and the guests really enjoyed it. I wasn't there for the set-up, but when I walked into the reception, it was prettier than I had imagined, with the cake topper, design, ribbons, and the florals beautifully decorating it. Whoever set it up did a wonderful job.

One more thing I really liked about Twiggs, was the money-saving tips given to us. They did not try to upsell us. In fact, they suggested that we size down to a cake for 140/150 to feed our 170 guests, since not everyone will eat a piece and many guests will have left by then. They also suggested that we have it set out at a buffet table instead of delivering it to seats, because likely a lot of it will be left on tables wasted. Gail also suggested that we tell the site to cut the layers as needed and save the rest. They were definitely right. Even sizing down 20 guests, we ended up getting to take home our top layer and half of another layer. With the size of our wedding and the guests who left right after dinner, we would have been safe cutting it down by 40-50 guests. However, my family was very happy to enjoy the leftover cake the next day!

Twiggs Bakery was 1/3 bakeries that I did a tasting at, and when I tasted their cake I was 99% sure I was going with them but I have one more tasting. I was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the experienced guidance from the owners. It was very easy to work with them in person and via email. The quality and taste of the cake was amazing! I got tons of compliments on the cake. I went with a 3 tiered square cake with 2 flavors. The only thing I wish I had done different was pay the extra money for more sugar flowers or got a cake topper as plan B. I wanted flowers on the sides and as the topper and unfortunately I felt there wasn't enough flowers and it looked a little naked.

My husband and I tasted cakes from three vendors (not to mention the samples we tried at bridal shows) and Twiggs was far and away the BEST in flavor and price! We loved that at the tasting we were able to try all of Twiggs' cakes and icings. And not only did they offer a military discount, it was a GREAT discount! The staff is super friendly to boot. After tasting with them and pricing out our wedding cake, it was just impossible for any bakery to compete. We chose the passionfruit chiffon cake, which was light and airy and perfectly sweet but not-too-sweet. It reminded us of Maui, where we got engaged. Initially we were going to get a small two-tiered ruffle cake with an ombre effect. The price was amazingly affordable compared to what other bakeries charge for that style of cake. In the end, however, we changed to a simple three-tiered cake with a hand-drawn horizontal pleats AND added a round one-tier Chargers-themed groom's cake (Mexican chocolate cake with cinnamon buttercream)-- all for much less than the cost of a standard three-tiered cake from other bakeries! While the price is great, the taste is outstanding too, no sacrifice there. Our guests loved the cakes, and the Chargers cake looked great. We had quite a bit of leftovers, and the cakes froze (and re-froze, twice!) incredibly well and still tasted wonderful weeks after the wedding. Overall, we loved our experience with Twiggs and would definitely recommend them to other brides and grooms! I'm just sad we've moved across the country... Otherwise I'd certainly be ordering a mini version of our wedding cake for our one-year anniversary!

The place doesn't look very fancy, but the cake was delicious and exactly what we asked for. They have a unique "tasting board" which allowed us to try every type of cake and frosting. Great customer service.
