Bakery recommendation for wedding cake

Does anyone have a recommendation for a bakery that does wedding cakes in the San Gabriel Valley, preferably near City of Industry, Pasadena, Whittier?  Thanks!

I do have a good bakery in Ontario but they'll charge $70 to deliver (my venue is out of the range).  I may just have to bite the bullet and pay!

I highly recommend Porto's Bakery in Glendale.  Talk to Lourdes (Lulu) there... she's super helpful and she's been doing wedding cakes for 16 years.  She knows what she's doing.  :)

I'm checking out CAKEGoodness tomorrow in Valencia - they may be a bit too far.  I've heard great things about them!

My venue provides a cake from Portos.  I've had other food there and it's great.  Their fruit tart is the best.  I can't wait to do some tasting!

Hansen's, in Los Angeles off of Pico.  OMG their cakes are amazing!!!! We stopped by to check it out, I asked to make an appointment for another day they said we can do a tasting now.  They give us at least 10 different types of cakes to try, two of each flavor,one for each of us. They even gave us a box to take all of the left overs home, for free!


The best part is, a week later I unwrapped one of the samples and the cake was still moist.  I couldn't believe it. I can't wait to order my wedding cake from them.

i used van's bakery on valley in san gabriel. i think a cake for 180 people was $350? Cant remember but i remember their prices being very reasonable and she can do most designs. They have a ton of sample cakes in the windows in front of their store. you just need to order the cake about a month in advance if the wedding is during a non-busy time (christmas, new years, mother's day, etc) if busy season, than 2 months advance notice should work.

Fi and I had about 7 tastings before we went to deCroupet's-the cake sisters.  We loved their cakes and how their fondant tastes. We booked them on the spot.  I've been craving their cakes ever since we had the tasting.

We are actually going with Knotts Berry Farm Bakery. They have DELICIOUS cakes and are CRAZY inexpensive. 297 for a 4 tier cake to feed 200 people! We just had our tasting and are so excited!

Perfectly Sweet in Alhambra on Maine Ave.  Her cakes are PHENOMENAL! Seriosly! Mary, the owner, is always so delightful AND she personally oversees your order.  My family has come to her for years now.  She's not close to me but so worth the drive.
