My husband and I choose Van's bakery to make our wedding cake mostly based on price, we paid 70% of what we planned to pay for a 3 tier cake at Final Touch or Gival and got a 6 tier cake. The sponge cake is not as light and doesn't come in fancy flavors like passionfruit but its much tastier than overly sweet American cake. It is good just not the BEST but after a 7 course dinner, most guest wont even eat cake, never mind noticing if the cake was amazing. The cake was moist, not too sweet and tasted freshly made.

Be aware to ask for prices at each Van's bakery, although they're owned by the same family, the cake prices vary store to store. I gave the owner pictures of what I wanted but I ended up getting a different design, its not ugly, pretty in fact, just not what I expected. I was ok with it considering what a deal I got and it still turned out pretty. Because I got such a big cake I asked if I can have boxes to give guests cake to take home but I guess they forgot. Communication was easy since I spoke vietnamese but they all spoke english well at the bakery.

I was a little upset when I saw my cake on my wedding day. The color of the ribbon was completely different than what I had ordered. I specify to them that I didn't want any bold colors for my wedding, therefore the ribbon I chose was a Very LIGHT peach (I even pointed out and selected the ribbon at the store)...and what did they ended putting on my cake?? A BRIGHT as can be ORANGE!! Needless to say I was very surprised and disappointed. But whatever, I didn't let that get to me...I coudn't wait to cut that cake so they can remove that crazy bright color from the details! Thanks goodness the cake still tastes good.

And when I went to return my cake stands, the lady said that I'm missing 2 of the stands. I told her that I don't have it, why would i keep it??! She denied to give my back my deposit. I told her that they messed up on my ribbon color and she was so rude. She wouldn't even try to service me. I return a week later and spoke to the boss and he was at least reasonable and told me that it's okay, maybe the venue didn't give you all back the stands and recognized that it wasn't my fault. He was willing to give me back my deposit and apologize that they messed up on the color.

But yeah if you want to save money on your cake expenses then they would be a good choice.
