Cakes + Desserts
The cake was amazing and Cathy is so sweet and great to work with. We had a grooms cake as well and they both turned out amazing!!!
We selected Cakes by Cathy for 3 reasons: we loved the moistness (and flavor!) of the samples we tasted, we had received glowing recommendations from several friends, and after meeting her we trusted she would do a good job. When I walked into our reception I was blown away at how GORGEOUS the cake was. It looked like a picture in a magazine! It tasted more delicious than I'd remembered and I am not exaggerating when I say that SO MANY of our guests actually raved about the cake and how delicious it was. She also helped advise us on the feasibility of a cake stand I had purchased and also ensured there was stability built into the top tier to accommodate the custom cake topper I had ordered. I cannot imagine anyone in San Antonio getting a better wedding cake anywhere else. Cathy is simply the best. THANK YOU for the beautiful, delicious cake!
We got married at Don Strange Ranch and they recommended Cakes by Cathy for our wedding cake. We could not have been happier! Cathy is so sweet and an absolute joy to work with. My fiancé and I had NO idea what kind of cake we wanted. Not only did she make multiple (and I mean multiple) cakes for tasting, she helped guide us on what kind of cake would look good in our rustic ranch setting. The cake and icing is hands down the best cake I've ever eaten!! Our guests still talk about how good it was. My husband is a huge Houston Texans fan and she made him so happy with a logo Texans grooms cake. We would use Cathy again in a heartbeat!
By far the most delicious cake I have ever had! There were almost no leftovers even though we got a bigger cake than needed because they guests kept going back for more! Cathy does beautiful and delicious work, and she was incredibly easy to work with. Definitely recommend!
Two words: Simply delicious. Okay, one more: gorgeous!
I have never tasted cake that is so good! Cathy made the most gorgeous cakes for our wedding and took on the challenge of giving my Husband the "Cookie Cake" he has always imagined he would have as his grooms cake. Everyone made comments about how moist and delicious both of our cakes were. She has the best cakes in the San Antonio area. You can not go wrong with picking her.
Ok... Lets begin at the very beginning... Our first meeting with Cathy was AMAZING, perfect even. From the moment she invited us into her home for the cake tasting, to the very last day, we loved her. Cathy felt like family to us. At that time we were unsure of having a grooms cake and she suggested with the amount of guests we were having to just do one wedding cake. Let me just tell you, after tasting the vanilla cake, We didn't need a second cake. And I am a chocolate fan. But that vanilla cake literally melted in my mouth and for a YEAR I dreamed about that cake. Have you ever been to a wedding and there was cake left over?? I have.... Well not our wedding. Everyone was able to get several servings and it was all gone within the hour. That's how good it was. My friends and family are still talking about it. Thank you Cathy for doing our cake. Not only was it beautiful, It was so amazing and I can't wait to have you do another one for us soon. (I'll find a reason to have more of your cake)
Cathy made my now husband and I most delicious cakes I've ever tasted in my life and also the most beautiful! Cathy is a joy to work with and she is simply the best! Please hire! I will definitely use her again for hopefully now my future children's birthdays!
Freaking incredible! Guest said that was the BEST WEDDING cake they've ever had. Everything was gorgeous and so delicious!
Our wedding cake was INCREDIBLE. Cathy also made a specialty groom's cake for us and it did not disappoint! So many guests told us it was the best cake they've ever had (wedding or not!)! Book Cathy now!
The cake was amazing and beautiful as well!!! All of our guests went back for a second piece and could not stop talking about it!!!
Oh my word, most delicious cakes ever! Cathy did an amazing job with my husband's baseball glove-shaped groom's cake, and the bridal cake was gorgeous as well! Very highly recommend Cathy Young!
Delicious! Amazing! Guests still talking about it!Reviewed on 11/03/2015 Misti F
When I asked on FB who had the best wedding cakes in town it was a unanimous, hands down reply of many friends and acquaintances that Cathy Young's cakes are by far the best! One quote said "when you go to her house you just want to taste her air." I can honestly say, all of them were right! Cathy is quite the baker and such a sweet person to work with as well. We had originally chosen her vanilla cake with buttercream and months later I decided I needed to try her amaretto. She made me a little Cupcake to pick up and try and it was to die for! Needless to say, that's what we decided to go with. All the cake lovers at our wedding raved about the cake and even people that weren't planning on eating cake went to grab a piece because everyone was telling them how amazing it was! We had a to go box of cake after the wedding we froze and picked on for two weeks, and it was still just as wonderful! I can't wait for our one year anniversary to get out our frozen top layer to enjoy! I will definitely use Cathy again and absolutely recommend her for your wedding or even!
SO yummy!!Reviewed on 11/02/2015 Heather B
Cathy made our wedding cake, which guests are still weeks later talking about how delicious it was! I met with Cathy and was able to taste some of her more popular flavors and show her pictures of what I had in mind for what I wanted my cake to look like. She delivered a beautiful cake that was exactly how I wanted it to look, and then the flavor was above and beyond anyone expectations!! I even had some cake for breakfast the next morning! :) She was so sweet and easy to work with. I will definitely be using Cathy in the future!

Best Cakes in the Business!Reviewed on 7/16/2015 Lindsey H
Cathy Young is the sweetest woman and genuinely interested in what you want for your wedding. She made a gorgeous wedding cake for us that was classic and so tasty. Instead of a filling, she was able to slice fresh strawberries and it tasted like strawberry shortcake. It turned out gorgeous and so yummy. She also made a groom's cake for my husband with the vintage San Antonio Spurs logo and it was a huge hit. Her chocolate cake is to die for - she bakes chocolate chips into the chocolate cake batter and it is the best cake I've ever had. She made everything so easy and dropped the cake off on the day of the wedding. I was VERY happy with her service and cake and will definitely use her for future cakes!
Exactly what I wantedReviewed on 10/20/2014
My husband (fiancé at the time) went with our wedding planner to sample Cathy's cakes and we immediately knew we wanted to hire her. She showed us multiple designs she was capable of doing. I gave her a few details I knew I liked, and she was able to draw up a new design for me on the spot. When we said it was only for 50-ish people, she immediately gave us a (very reasonable) price. She was very easy to work with and, most importantly, the cake she made was beautiful and delicious!
Delicious!Reviewed on 10/03/2014 Jackie H
We went for a cake tasting with Cathy and instantly fell in love with her. We ended up using her for our Groom's cake (my aunt made mine) and it was the most delicious chocolate cake you have ever had. We actually didn't get a piece the night of the wedding but had some to take home with us. We didn't get to eat it until we came back from the honeymoon and seriously, the cake was still AMAZING a week and a half later. They will charge you for a delivery fee for the cake, but I would suggest just paying for it and not have to worry about one of your family members or friends messing it up. You will not be disappointed with Cathy's cakes!
Deliciously BeautifulReviewed on 6/17/2014 Grace P
Cakes by Cathy Young did an extraordinary job with my wedding cake. Unlike most decorative cakes her cake actually tastes good. It is probably the best wedding cake I have ever had. She listens very well to exactly what you want and reproduces it perfectly. Everyone of my guests kept telling me how tasty the cake was.
Yum!Reviewed on 1/11/2014 Sara M
Cathy was such a delight to work with. Her cakes taste like heaven and she was very willing to make the super simple creation that I requested. It fit our theme, venue, and decor perfectly and was so tasty that day! :)

Cathy's cakes are always delicious (we use her for birthday and other celebrations too) her plain white cake is the most moist cake you will taste. She is a very sweet woman and did exactly what I wanted. I wold recommend her to anyone!
In love with my cake!Reviewed on 12/03/2013 Michelle D
Cathy Young and her daughter have been making my birthday cakes for years, so naturally when I got engaged I knew I wanted Cathy to make my wedding cake! I was not disappointed! As always, she was so sweet and helpful. She let my husband and I come over for a tasting (even though I already knew her cakes are phenomenal ;)). She made a bride and grooms cake. They were both SO DELICIOUS! Words cannot even explain how amazing these cakes were. Not only did they taste so wonderful, they looked so beautiful. I didn't even want to cut into mine!! I just couldn't believe how beautiful it turned out. My husband's was equally amazing! She puts so much effort and creativity into her cakes. The best cake maker in town, that's for sure!

Super MoistReviewed on 10/18/2013 Sara V
Cathy made the best cake we tasted in our planning process. We tried many many places and she was referred to us by our wedding planner. Her cake was by far the most moist and delicious tasting cake we tried. She only does a few cakes a weekend so I felt we received extra special attention. I showed her pictures from pinterest on what I was hoping the cake would look like and she did not disappoint. We received many compliments on the look and the taste all evening. We actually ended up eating the top tier in our hotel room that night, it was that good!
Best Cake!Reviewed on 10/06/2013 Libby M
Cathy was so awesome to work with you! She understood exactly what I wanted my cake to look like and delivered. I didn't see it until the day of the wedding, but I never once worried if it was going to be anything less than fabulous. Not to mention how awesome it tasted! It was the most delicious cake! Guests only complaint was that we didn't have enough!
