Fantasy Frostings
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We have tried cakes from the top vendors in LA. Fantasy Frosting has been a vendor since over 10 yrs ago since they were on TV advertising them in Whittier and also doing J Lo's cakes. Recently when I was reading magazines, they did Jamie Preston's cakes. I'm so glad they moved to So Pasadena! It was closer to home and I was able to bring cakes to friends and the wedding committee for tasting. Leslie baked us 3 6in round, 6in high cakes for tasting ($30) each. The cakes were delicious!

Our wedding cake was a 3 tier, top tier lemon curd raspberry and lemon cake. Bottom 2 tiers fresh berry. Frosting was awesome, not as sweet as tasting--just perfect because we asked her to make it not as sweet. Cake was so moist and so plentiful that there were enough for guests to take home, AND I've told lots of people about her cake already. They asked, I told. Our luncheon venue is putting her on their list of preferred vendors. The manager of the venue said that was the best tasting cake she ever had, and she's planned plenty of birthdays and weddings there.

Okay, enough about taste. So, how does it look? EXTRAORDINARY! Better than what we had pictured. The colors were beautiful--ours was a unique design for October. =) It was so artistically put together, and our cake topper didn't have any frosting on the bottom of it. Not only that, the top layer of the cake didn't have any messed up frosting of where the topper was placed. Everything was whole and silver and white! Amazing, amazing job! I have referred her work to another future bride.

Overall, I recommend Leslie. She delivers the cake herself and tells you how to interview cake vendors and gives you the low down straight out. I will be picking up another celebration cake from her, and will not be disappointed. I look forward to celebrations so that I can order her cakes.

I just went there to find out more about their service and cakes. I wanted it for our wedding and for a birthday party. Unfortunately, there were no cakes around to purchase, but that's okay. Everyone there was so friendly. I didn't have an appt., and they offered me complementary cake taste. I didn't want to bother them, but they were so nice. They offered me 5 of the popular flavor requests for cake tasting. One of the flavors was banana cake with banana cream filling. I am a person who hates anything banana. So, after reading all these reviews, I'm like, "okay, I hate bananas with a passion, but I will try that piece first." I was so blown away with the first bite, that I intend to order the cake with banana cream and banana cake! Anyone who can make me crave more the banana wins me over. I can't believe how delicious it was!!! The strawberry cake was also to die for. I guess we found our bakery. Hubby-to-be loves banana, and now we can have it!
