I recently had my wedding at Gervasi Winery. I knew from the minute I talked to Christina she was the cake maker for me! My (future) husband and I went to her home (this is where she works her magic) and had a taste testing. She had everything laid out perfect and the cakes/filling were so yummy I wrote a deposit check on the spot. We emailed back and forth a few times...I would send her pics of what I was looking for and she then took all my suggestions and free hand sketched a few designs...we decided on one and when the cake arrived the day of my wedding it was perfect! I had SO many complements from my guests...it was a hot day and she made sure to deliver it last minute so the frosting didn't melt. I can't thank you enough Christina...I loved the cake so much I had her make a 50th anniversary cake as well!
Within the first 5 minutes of meeting Christina at our taste testing, my husband and I knew we wanted Christina to make our cake for our wedding. Christina always responded to my e-mails quickly and always has an answer for our questions. Our cake was 4 tiers with real flowers cascading down the side, and it was beyond perfect. We also picked 4 different flavors for each tier and each was amazing! I'm almost positive we had every single guest member compliment our cake and the flavor! Not only were I, my husband, and our guests were impressed, our wedding coordinator even complimented her on her professionalism and the beauty of the cake. With all that being said, I highly recommend Cakes By Christina. Our cake was one area of our wedding that I never once had to worry about.
Christina was amazing to work with! My wedding cake was beautiful and so good and I am still receiving compliments on it weeks later! She custom designed a beautiful cascading branch of red, orange and yellow flowers on my 4 tier cake and it turned out exactly how I wanted! I would highly recommend her to anyone.
We ordered 11 dozen cupcakes for a wedding that was 2 months away - Christina was awesome with everything; from getting us scheduled for a tasting asap, down to making everything look wonderful day of. The cupcakes were delicious, and everyone enjoyed them. Everything was exactly what we asked for, and the cupcakes were amazing. You will not be disappointed.
Excellent design overall, flavors, and everything I asked for!! I was a bride who planned a wedding from another state so we only communicated via phone/email and once I sent her a photo of the wedding cake I wanted, she made exactly that! We were very pleased with choosing Cakes by Christina. Thank you Christina for allowing our wedding to have a five star cake!
Christina did an amazing job. The cake was very important to us. And she did exactly what we wanted. She make our day very special. I would 100% recommend her.
Christina's cake was exactly what we asked for. She was able to produce a cake based on a photo we brought in, and it tasted just as good as it looked. You can have each tier be a different flavor without additional costs, which I thought was really unique. I had no worries day of, she took care of all of the details from calling my vendor and coordinating with the florist.
Christina was great to work with and very accommodating. She made our cake exactly how I had envisioned! It was beautiful and delicious. Our guests loved it! I really wanted a gold stand to match my colors, and Christina was willing to purchase one to go with my theme. Thank you!
Horrible customer service. Ruined our newlywed high after the honeymoon with trying to rip us off on security deposit after returning equipment. Don't book
Christina was lovely to work with, and produces extremely tasty and beautiful cakes. We worked with her for our wedding in April 2015. Initially my mother-in-law contacted her, and informed Christina that I have an allergy to dairy, and would be interested in having the cake baker use their regular recipe but with goat's milk instead of cow's milk (as opposed to using a vegan recipe). Christina indicated she'd be willing to try that. When she followed up with me later, I asked her the same question - again, she indicated she would be willing to try that and would serve us that at our tasting. However, at our tasting, Christina served us her vegan recipe; that, and her extremely long contract made it clear that she was, in fact, NOT willing to try anything but her established recipes. While at this point I made the decision to continue with Christina due to time constraints and other factors, I was extremely disappointed in this bait-and-switch behavior. In all other aspects, working with Christina went very well! Her cakes tasted fabulous, and the decorations were beautiful. She had provided idea sketches that allowed us to make sure the design would be what we wanted. Christina was also patient with the delay on our cake topper, and provided the cake on time and beautifully set up. In all, a great experience once we chose her, but her self-advertising and promises left much to be desired.
Christina was professional, helpful, and pleasurable to work with throughout the entire process. She not only made wonderful cupcakes, aesthetically and to the taste buds, but also backed it up with timely service and affordability. She was very flexible offering many options including vegan cupcakes. We highly recommend her.
I knew from the first time I talked to Christina that we would be going with her services. She was easy to get in touch with, was very accommodating for scheduling (and even laughed it off when we showed up 15 minutes late for the tasting), and made delicious and beautiful cakes for a good price… not sure what else we could want. The display cakes she had out when we first visited and the pictures of her previous work showed us exactly what we needed to see and the tasting was an added bonus because everything was delicious and was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience! Her contract is very informative and covers just about any question I could come up with which was so nice to have. She was also very easy to work with and made sure she had everything she needed before hand so as to not cause any stress as it got closer to the big day! She sent an email a couple days in advance stating that she had contacted everyone she needed to at the venue and told us exactly what time everything would be dropped off and set up, we didm't have to do a thing! When arriving at the venue for the first time the cake was set up perfectly with topper and all and looked absolutely perfect! I will never be able to thank Christina enough for the amount of stress she saved me from! I would recommend her cakes a thousand times over to any one that asked (I still dream about the lemon cake with white chocolate ganache filling!!)
From the very beginning, I knew that Cakes by Christina was who I wanted to use for our wedding cake. Christina was more than happy to welcome my husband and I into her home to do our cake testing; she was patient with us and answered all our questions promptly. I brought two different pictures of cakes that we wanted to take ideas from, and Christina had no issues creating our perfect cake. Our cake was delivered to our venue on time and in perfect condition; I couldn’t be any happier. Our guests were very pleased with our cake, and even our vendors were complimenting on how beautiful and gorgeous our cake was. And of course, on top of that, it was delicious! I would recommend Cakes by Christina to anyone who wants a fabulous cake with a personal touch!
DELICIOUS WEDDING CAKES!Reviewed on 7/19/2015 Ashley T
I cannot speak highly enough of Cakes by Christina. She is a one woman show and really exclusive, taking only one wedding a weekend, but it's so worth booking her early. We were blown away by the tasting. Her cakes were moist and her selection of choices and customization was amazing. We ended up doing cupcakes for easy guest access and a small cutting cake. Try the strawberry cake with the lemon curd filling! Tastes like strawberry lemonade! We also loved the cinnamon roll cake with cream cheese frosting and the peanut butter chocolate chip with chocolate ganache center. Her prices were probably the best around AND she delivered and set up! BOOK HER!!! You won't regret it!
Christina did an amazing job with our cupcakes and our grooms cake for our wedding. Everyone loved them!! The mocha toffee flavor was the favorite. Her unique flavors make her stand out from everyone else. Was not disappointed by our choice to go with Cakes by Christina!! I would definitely recommend her to friends and family.

Delicious and beautiful!Reviewed on 10/29/2014 Jennifer C
We loved the cake Christina made for us! We told her what we wanted and she designed it perfectly. Not only was it beautiful, but it was delicious! We had chose 2 layers and each was a different flavor... Lemon with raspberry filling, and caramel with apple filling. They were both so good. I will definitely order from Cakes by Christina again!
Shower, Wedding, Anniversary CakesReviewed on 10/22/2014
Christina's cakes are out of this world! I have had the pleasure of working with Christina for multiple events and the process was seamless from design to delivery. Not only are her cakes beautiful but even better they are delicious. She will give you a wide variety of options at the cake tasting and spends as much time as needed with you on cake design. Her cake design skills are exceptional. Most importantly you can count on Christina's professionalism and clean kitchen. All of our guests raved about our gorgeous Champagne cake with Strawberry filling!
Cannot say enough good things about her!Reviewed on 9/25/2014 Tresa L
I found Christina through my sisters who were charged with finding a bakery for my wedding cupcakes. They went to a cake tasting at Cakes by Christina and loved it! They told me she had the largest cupcakes of all the places they had tried! Based on their recommendation, I went with Cakes by Christina for my wedding cupcakes. I could not be more pleased with how everything turned out! Christina created a beautiful world map cutting cake which was exactly what I had dreamed of. She offered a variety of cupcake flavors and fillings! She was even willing to go above and beyond to create cupcakes without eggs or gelatin as many of my guests were vegan. All of my wedding guests raved about how delicious and beautiful her cupcakes turned out! Thank you Christina for making our wedding day so special!

Christina made a grooms cake for my wedding. My husband is a big scuba diver and she made the coolest scuba diving cake ever! I gave her some ideas of what I wanted and the final product was awesome! Everyone raved about how cool the design was. The cake was also very delicious! Christina has a strong attention to detail. All the details from the scuba diver to the fish on the cake were done incredibly. I would recommend Cakes by Christina to anyone! She did awesome!
Wedding CakeReviewed on 6/05/2014
Christina made my cake for the wedding. It was not only beautiful but it was delicious as well. We tried several samples at our cake testing but we ultimately decided on the champagne cake, but they were all delicious! I had a specific style I wanted her to replicate. The design was very intricate but Christina did an awesome job and the final product turned out exactly how I wanted. I heard so many positive comments about how beautiful and tasty our cake was. I would definitely use Christina again and recommend her to others!

Cakes by ChristiniaReviewed on 1/12/2014 Jennifer F
When we first met Christina at her home, she situated my husband and I with different cake samples, fillings, icing,etc. Everything we sampled was delicious! Christina also showed us different samples of wedding cakes or cupcake displays which were all uniquely decorated to her clients' taste. We decided on cupcakes with different flavors and designs with a topper cake for my husband and I. On our wedding day, the cupcakes were beautifully designed and decorated with every detail exactly what I had planned. The topper cake was perfectly set with the simple monogram cake topper that I supplied prior to the wedding date. My only regret was that my husband and I did not order more cupcakes due to the fact that every cupcake was eaten soon after we cut our topper cake! Our guests were very happy with the dessert! I think the only small detail that we were surprised with pertained to the deposit of the cake stand. Understandably, you pay a deposit for the cake stand because it is specially made and if there is any damage, it would have to replaced. Both my husband and I understood prior to ordering our cupcakes that the cake stand deposit was being held on to and not cashed until the stand was returned with damage. Instead, both checks(one for cake stand and the other for cake deposit) were cashed. For future brides, I would make this understood or have it written down in the contract so that each person planning a wedding that is allocating funds and budgeting multiple vendors at a time will already have that planned and budgeted. Otherwise, if you are planning a wedding and want fantastic results with great quality cake/cupcakes at a reasonable price, Cakes by Christina is a fantastic vendor and I will continue to recommend the business.
