Looking for a bakery for our destination wedding in Santa Monica was hard, but I saw excellent reviews on the Knot and just had to inquire for myself..
Jamaica is so nice to work with and she had so many different types of flavored cakes and wedding cakes to offer. She definitely brought our vision into reality and couldn't believe how beautiful and delicious our wedding cake was esp since we had the bavarian and chocolate mousse fillings..
I highly recommend Jamaica's Cakes for any type of event!!!
Everyone LOVED our wedding cake- chocolate with white chocolate buttercream! I had people come up to me and mention they were going to stop by Jamaica's to place their own orders! Working with Jamaica's was a great experience. Thank you for creating such a memorable cake!
My wedding planner ordered my cake from Jamaica's. We didn't even try it until our wedding night---it was a special wedding cake---because I'm allergic to dairy. This vegan wedding cake was the best cake I have ever tasted! It went so fast, we didn't have any left over.
I am so glad we went with Jamaica's Cakes. We needed something that would feed 100 people on a budget, but didn't want a standard white on white wedding cake. Jamaica totally did the job right. We were able to select two different cakes (a 2 tier strawberry lemonaid cake for cutting and a chocolate peanut butter sheet cake) and still came in under budget.
She really listened to us when describing what we liked and disliked for style and came up with an adorable design that matched our cake toppers. I couldn't have been happier with the service.
we went on our 1st appt. to taste all flavors of cake they have, we decided to do chocolate with natural flowers. they did a good job, except they put the wrong flowers, we asked for cherry blossoms, and they used anemones, dont get me wrong it was pretty, but not what we ask for.
Great service too!
We had cake in our fridge for a week but it really should have lasted much longer! If you need a cake, go try this cake, nothing more to say.
Jamaica made a lemon cake for our wedding using lemons we provided from our yard. The cake was beautiful and delicious. I couldn't have imagined a better cake. We will never buy cake from anyone else
I absolutely loved my wedding cake. Jamaica was wonderful. They set up the most delicious tasting for us. We had two meeting total and they could do anything we wanted. The big reason we choose them was that they were not big on fondant and I wanted as little fondant at possible. I got a delicious butter cream cake. The price was reasonable for the number of people. And best of all, they make you a cake on your one year anniversary instead of you having to save your top layer, which could not possible taste good after a year.
Jamaica did an awesome job with my cake. She was very pleasant to work with. She listened to what I wanted and was able to recreate it. Not only did the cake look great but it was also delicious! I liked how I was able to customize the flavors and the cake tasted gourmet rather than out of a box like the other places I tried. It was the right amount of moistness and density.
From tasting to cutting the experience was amazing! When we first went to try the cake (tasting) they made us feel oh so special! It was one of the best things and experiences we had while preparing our wedding. We went the untraditional route with our cake, and it came out beautiful and the flavor was delicious. All our guests asked about our cake and many of them have e-mailed us for Jamaica's contact info. Doesn't get better than that!!!!!
We were thrilled with our cake from Jamaica's Cakes - it looked and held up great, it tasted amazing, and the entire process of ordering/designing it was easy.
Initial Meeting - Jamaica was very easygoing and attentive to what we were looking for. Her portfolio demonstrates her creative talent, so we were confident that executing our vision (which ended up being very simple & clean) wouldn't be an issue. But the clincher was that her cakes were delicious. My husband doesn't like sweets much and normally doesn't enjoy cake, and out of the 3-4 bakeries we visited, hers was the only one that he actually wanted to go back to and eat more cake. (We checked her out based on a friend's recommendation, whose fiance feels the same way and said the exact same thing.)
Cost - lower midrange, a little cheaper than most of similar quality in the LA area. We definitely visited more expensive bakeries with lower quality product.
Planning/finalization - very easy. We had up to two weeks to finalize our design, and everything was easily taken care of through phone calls and emails. Communication was prompt, friendly, and professional.
Day of - cake delivery and set-up were on time and went smoothly. The cake looked better than what we imagined - Jamaica was able to execute a product that was better than we were originally thinking, and all based off vague directions and a badly drawn sketch from me. The cake was delicious, and many of our guests complimented us on taste and look.
Jamaica did an amazing job with our cake! We got to custom pick our flavors and decorations and she made it look perfect! All our guests kept comenting on how delicious our straberry lemon cake was =)
My now-husband and I met in the UCLA marching band drumline, and I really wanted to have a groom's cake in the shape of a UCLA bass drum. On top of that, I recently went vegan during all of my wedding planning and was looking for a "supplemental" cake that I could eat at my own wedding. Jamaica's cakes was the answer to all of my needs. They were able to make a delicious and amazing-looking red velvet vegan cake, and deliver it. It was perfect!
Jamaica's Cakes make the most delicious cakes out there! We simply provided a photo of what we wanted and they not only recreated the look but enhanced it. Most importantly, they use all natural ingredients which produces a cake your guests will actually want to eat!
Even the meat/dairy eaters agreed, my lemon poppy seed cake, decorated with a fondant surfboard design, was delish! The ordering process was a little haphazard and they didn't have the cake completed on time for the day of pick up, but the product itself was a hit.
We met with Jamaica, had the best tasting session and immediately knew we wanted her to make our cake. She delivered perfectly on our agreed design and I heard so many comments after the wedding about how tasty and flavorful our cake was! Definite recommend.
Jamaica was great to work with. She is a talented baker and the cakes (wedding cake and grooms cake) were beautiful and delicious!
My first experience with them was at a cake tasting at Jamaica's pastry and cake shop. IT was very gourmet how all the different frostings, fillings, and cakes were arranged for us to try to different combinations. They ALL tasted amazing, and Jamaica, the owner and cakemaker, is very hospitable and helpful. We ordered an elegant cake with lilies on it for the cutting, as well as another sheet cake of the same flavors to accommodate all of our guests (it's a more economic way to order a wedding cake - we had a three-tiered cake and then sheet cakes). They are all Jamaica's special recipes and we had lots of options for size, flavor, and appearance. We had 5 different cake combinations all in our 1 cake plus sheetcake. The red velvet is amazing, but seriously every flavor combination that we ordered was fantastic. My cake arrived on time and beautiful, and I will be returning for more cakes from Jamaica's.

Cakes completely from scratch
We make cakes 100% from scratch, to order. We never use shortening, or freeze our cakes (two things to look out for!), and the only limit to the design is your imagination. Our cakes aren't the sugary-sweet, fluffy stuff that you find at most bakeries, they are more rich and less sweet.
