That Takes the Cake
Best cupcakes I've ever had. She came to my venue, set up everything and did an awesome job. People are still talking about them. I recently heard that they sold the company when i visited the new location in Oakland so I can't vouch for the new owners.
We had That Takes the Cake make cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding cake for our wedding in May. They were delicious! I've loved their cupcakes for years and I was so excited to use them for the wedding. My only gripes were the slow to respond to emails and I actually had to go into the shop to confirm that we were on for the wedding. I didn't actually sign a contract or anything which I thought was weird. Also they do a great deal for tasting $1 a cupcake for what I thought was 25 cupcakes but when I got home there were only 23 which is fine but they were not labeled so we had to go on the internet and try to figure out what flavors were what- I'd definitely suggest getting the cupcakes labeled before leaving the shop. Otherwise I loved the staff when I talked to them and they did an amazing job, the cupcakes were awesome!!!
BEST CUPCAKES EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is all I have heard from anyone who attended our wedding. They are amazing, flexible, set-up a beautiful display. Added bonus: they are the cutest couple ever, exactly what you need as inspiration to enter into betrothal!
Rather than having a traditional wedding cake, we went with a cupcake tower. We researched several places, prices, etc. That Takes the Cake was exceptional. They offer delivery, setup and will pick up the towers when your event is over. We decided to return them ourselves to save a few dollars, however, with how exhausted we were the few days after the wedding, I would have shelled out the $50 (or however much it cost) to have them pick the towers up. It would have been well worth it. You would be surprised how many places don't offer these services let alone to deliver. This was the #1 selling point for me and their prices were reasonable not to mention the cupcakes DELICIOUS!
First off, what a great place! Keisha and Brian are the owners of this shop on Union Street in San Francisco. They are husband and wife and really do a great job with running this place and keeping it a personable and friendly environment. I really appreciated working with them.
We rented two cupcake towers and they were beautiful. Having not seen the actual towers themselves, I was a bit nervous as to how they would look (there are so many different ones out there and I was hesitant they would be plastic or tacky looking). I was pleasantly surprised. They were substantial towers (three tiers) and the look of them was exquisite.
The only reason I gave 2 1/2 stars for responsiveness is because I primarily communicate through email and it was difficult to get a response. I think this is so important with this day and age and it would have been extremely helpful to have that responsiveness. Especially with all the other things we were having to coordinate for the wedding, it was a bit frustrating not to have someone reply back within a reasonable time when we had questions. We usually had to follow up with a phone call to get in touch with someone.
Other than that, everything was fabulous. The cupcake tower looked perfect and was a great addition to our wedding. We had 150 cupcakes and chose about 6 different flavors. Another thing that I really appreciated about this business is that they don't pressure you or try to hard sell you. We started off with an order for 200 cupcakes when we first signed the contract and once we had a better idea of our headcount we changed it to 150. They were completely accommodating without trying to make us keep the original 200 cupcake order.
Absolutely fabulous! If you're looking for to do a cupcake tower, I highly recommend this place! Wonderful!
I've been meaning to write this review for a while & just never got around to it...but I was reminded again when I had their cupcakes this past weekend!!
This was one of the cupcake vendors we use at our wedding instead of a traditional cake - specifically for their AMAZING red velvet's (moist & the most delish cream cheese frosting ever)...best in the city. And they definitely delivered on my high expectations! I got SO many compliments - specifically on these cupcakes & I still go to their shop on union street to get myself one whenever I'm around the area.
Highly recommend for taste, presentation & overall service.
