Our wedding cake and groomscake were both beautiful!
Our cake was more beautiful than we had envisioned, and sooo delicious! Plus, Judy and everyone at Simon Lee Bakery were so accommodating. =)
Our cake was perfect! It looked just as we ordered it and it was delicious!!! Everyone was talking about how good the cake was. The cake was affordable too. We tried different places, but when we tried the cake here we knew it was the winner. Thanks Judy!!
I have celiac and cannot have gluten. But I really wanted lemon cake for my bridal cake, because it's my favorite. So we got regular cake for the whole cake and they made a separate mini gluten-free lemon cake just for my husband and I to cut into during the reception. It was very sweet of them to do for us and I will always remember that with them! And by the way, the gluten-free cake they made tasted better then regular wedding cake...It is always hard for me to say that, but this time it was true. It is moist and silky and everything that is delicious! My vision for how I wanted the bridal cake to look also came true and I was in awe of how beautiful they did with their work. Thank you guys! I will use you again!
Judy and her staff brought my daughter's vision to life. They were very attentive and professional. The cake was not only a masterpiece of beauty, but was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend Judy and her staff at Simon Lee Bakery
I found Simon Lee through the Bridal Expo last year. I tried many different cakes and flavors, and Simon Lee had the best tasting cake HANDS DOWN. So moist and the flavors are authentic, not artificial. Another thing that stood out was their cake displays. WOW so tall, detailed, elegant and beautiful. They have such a wide range of talent, doing not only wedding cakes, but grooms cakes, birthday cakes, specialty cakes. They make UT tower replica cakes for goodness sake! Simon Lee makes the unthinkable happen.
I worked with Judy from the get go, and she is just MARVELOUS. She was so helpful from the first consultation to the day of the wedding. I brought in some inspirational photos, and she took copious notes and really took my vision to heart. She copied my inspirational photo into my customer profile and sketched everything out so that I can approve. Very thoughtful and customer focused. She did both my wedding and groom's cake, and they were completely different concepts.
Simon Lee also has the BEST flavor combinations. I drool every time I look at her filling and cake flavor sheet. We did three different cake flavors and a unique filling for each, one for each tier. Judy helped us pick the best combinations and let us try each. They use the best ingredients and their butter cream is so velvety- it's to die for!
My cake turned out exactly how I wanted it the day of. I was able to rent one of her beautiful cake stands for a fraction of the cost. The sugar flowers are the best I've ever seen. They look so real and ethereal. The groom's cake took everyone's breath away and my husband was SO HAPPY!
I will recommend Simon Lee until the end of time!!!!!!!!!
We purchased our wedding cake from Simon Lee bakery and it was absolutely amazing. It looked beautiful and was absolutely delicious. Too many times you have cakes that are beautifully decorated but the taste is dry and or just not really that good; but Simon Lee cakes are just the opposite. Simply delicious. I cant stress enough how extremely satisfied I am that we ordered from this bakery. I will use Simon Lee going forward for all future cake needs.
Simon Lee Bakery is just FANTASTIC! our experience with them during our daughter's wedding was delightful from start to finish. Judy Lee is so creative and fun to work with; she helped us come up with a really fun dessert table with 5 cakes instead of one big one, and each was a work of art, and even better tasting! Our main cake was a delicious mexican vanilla with fresh strawberries and cream, and we had a yummy crouquembouche (cream puff tower with a caramel drizzle - incredible!), an all pink fluffy strawberry cake, a beautiful and good cake ball swirled tower, and last but not least a chocolate peanut butter cake that was divine! Judy worked really hard to make the table look perfect, and our guests were totally blown away! I would highly recommend them to anyone.
We came to Judy at Simon Lee with a crazy question. We wondered whether they could make a wedding cake replica of the arch in Washington Square Park in NYC (where the Texas couple became engaged while both working in NYC). From an internet picture and a photo, they crafted a perfect replica! The cake exceeded all of our hopes and expectations. It was fabulous! The artisans at Simon Lee captured the architectural details, scale and beauty of the arch perfectly. It was a beautiful visual centerpiece for our event. Everyone was talking about the cake. This was the second time Judy has done a wedding cake for us. Simon Lee Bakery has a well deserved reputation as the best bakers, designers and artisans in Austin.
Upon our first taste testing at Simon Lee - we knew we wanted their cakes! Every flavor was delicious. Judy worked with us to design and budget the bride and groom cake. They turned out gorgeous, and we received many compliments on the cake(s) from guests.
We were so very pleased with Simon Lee and know several other brides that have been just as impressed! Their cakes are delicious and they will work with you on the exact design you are looking for.
I loved Simon Lee Bakery!! Our cakes were exactly like the pictures I brought in, and tasted amazing. Judy was such a sweet lady and so easy to work with. She even called me the evening before the wedding to make sure that we still wanted one of the cakes a particular way. After our first meeting, I felt as if I had known her for ages! She's so talented at what she does, and I highly recommend Simon Lee Bakery.
I don't even know what to say. It was the best cake I have ever tasted. We are probably going to drive back there from Oklahoma and get another cake just to eat. We had petit fours in lieu of a traditional wedding cake, so we got to have both chocolate and wedding cake flavor, and they were both the best. They bake the cake the morning of the event, so everything was incredibly fresh. So many compliments from guests! Also they were very pretty, which is kind of important, but being TASTY is the most important. And tasty it was.
Simon Lee Bakery did an outstanding job on the wedding cake. Not only was the cake very beautiful, exactly what we wanted, but extremely delicious!!!! We had guests who had 3 pieces of cake. Judy Lee is wonderful to work with and extremely talented. We had 2 different cake flavors and 3 different fillings. The strawberries and whipped cream filing is to die for. The design of the cake was exactly what we wanted. Judy did an outstanding job and we highly recommend them. Karen
We used Simon Lee Bakery for both our wedding and groom's cakes. They were both custom cakes designed at our tasting. I could not have enough good things to say about the individuals we worked with and the quality of the cakes. Simon and Judy were great to work with, they responded promptly to questions, payment was easy to arrange in installments and all details were confirmed by the bakery. The cakes were gorgeous/spectacular and our guests have commented that they were the best cakes they have ever tasted. We had a strawberry wedding cake with butter cream icing and fresh strawberries in 2 layers and strawberry ganache in the other 2 layers. Our grooms cake was chocolate with fondant icing and a rum, strawberry and kiwi filling. We were not huge fans of fondant icing from out other experiences but we thought it tasted great. Both cakes were excellent, not too rich or sweet, but still moist and flavorful.
Also, the tasting was a great experience and was really unusual compared to the others we attended because of all the different flavors we were allowed to taste and we were allowed to bring an extra person (MOG) without any charge. Judy was also able to take all the pictures of cakes we had liked and design something during the tasting that incorporated everything we liked about each cake. The showroom is amazing as well and a great place to see all their amazing products. We will be using this bakery from now on for any cake we need, it is worth every penny.
Being an out of town bride, I heard from MULTIPLE people that Simon Lee was the best bakery in Austin. After, my family and I visited in person for a tasting, we knew we didn't need to look any further as the cakes tasted and designs we previewed were just amazing! They blew us away.
Judy was so wonderful and sweet and easy to work with! We gave her a photo of what we wanted for the Bridal Cake and the Groom's Cake and she made our vision come to life perfectly! She nailed it!
We got so many compliments all night long on how beautiful our cake was and people LOVED the College Football themed Groom's Cake.
Judy is a true artist. She is extremely talented and her cakes are the best in Austin. This was an easy decision and one of the best decisions we made in our planning!
Judy and her team are amazing! They made the cakes and sweets for my daughter's wedding. Our theme for the wedding was "romantic vintage". I looked for months for the perfect cake. When we had our cake tasting with Judy, I was so impressed. The display cakes were beautiful. I gave her pictures of the design we wanted for the bridal and groom's cakes, vintage cupcakes, and cookies. I gave her a piece of the fabric from the tablecloths for the color and a wedding invitation for the style. The bridal cake design we chose was a five layer pink cake that had vintage lace scrolls and big beautiful sugar roses. The grooms cake was a compass that she took styles from two different pictures to make one design. The cupcakes were four different designs and the cookies yet another. At the last minute I added five dozen macaroons to the order. She never hesitated for a moment. She even went as far as to send us different vintage style world maps to choose a background for the groom's cake to sit on.
We spent the day decorating the venue for the ceremony. We left to dress for the wedding and it just so happened that Judy delivered the cakes and other sweets while we were gone. When we returned to the venue the cakes and sweets were set up. I was blown away when I saw them. They were all more beautiful than the pictures I had given her. The colors and designs were perfect. The bridal cake was stunning! It was more spectacular than I could have imagined. The grooms cake was exactly what we asked for. The cupcakes and cookies were amazing. Not only was everything gorgeous, they were all delicious. I can't say enough good things about Simon Lee Bakery. They are wonderful.... Thanks Judy for the incredible cakes and sweets! You guys are fantastic!!!!!
While more expensive than its competitors, the cakes at Simon Lee are well worth it. Our layers were orange marmalade and chocolate mousse cakes, and they were delicious. When we walked over to cut the cake, it looked perfect, and I can't wait for our 1-year anniversary to roll around so that I can order a small orange marmalade cake to celebrate.
Judy did an amazing job. Her cakes are super delicious. The grooms cake was a party barge and it could not have turned out better. She added cake balls as details and she was able to execute my vision perfectly. Everyone was super impressed with her cakes and hands down she makes the best cakes.
when I first met with Judy Lee, she was friendly, professional, and patient. We tasted a few flavors, but didn't know what exact style of cake we wanted. She talked with us for a while and tried to get a feel for our style. We ended up with an exquisite, delicious, cake that everybody loved!
