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.

Choosing the flavor of our cake was difficult because we enjoyed so many of their options. By far the most reasonably priced cake we found, and so yummy! We chose a very simple design and they did a wonderful job creating it.

Twiggs Bakery made us a beautiful 3-tier wedding cake. Nima was a wonderful consultant and gave us many suggestions. We chose the white velvet cake with strawberry filling and buttercream frosting. They delivered the cake as scheduled to the venue and decorated it with pink roses and a cake topper. The cake was moist and delicious. Everyone loved it and the portions were larger than expected! Thanks Twiggs for an amazing wedding cake and we will definitely use you again.

Would give 6 stars if we were allowed.

We selected Twiggs Bakery for a wedding cake tasting based on previous Yelp reviews, and they did not disappoint. They take the time to do a very thorough tasting ensuring you experience the range of wonderful cakes they have to offer.

We selected them to make our wedding cake and could not have been more pleased. Baking is an art form, and Twiggs is a true master of the craft. We did a beach theme, and the cake decorations of edible white chocolate shells and coral were gorgeous! For our cake flavors, we selected strawberries and cream for the main cake, key lime coconut and lemon poppyseed cakes as our side cakes. The flavors were dead on, and the cakes were light, airy, and moist.
