Cakes + Desserts
Emily at Crushcakes was amazing from start to finish! She made planning a breeze, the tasting was so much fun, and everything was perfect on the day of the wedding! Delicious cupcakes, beautiful setup, and stress-free communication.
We ordered our wedding cake from Crushcakes and were very pleased! The cake tasting was a blast – we ultimately chose the tiramisu flavor, which is delicious. The cake itself was gorgeous and delivered flawlessly to our wedding venue. At the venue, it was decorated with flowers. It looked beautiful and it tasted delicious! Thank you, Crushcakes!!
Crushcakes’ cupcakes have long been a favorite local indulgence of mine, so they were an obvious first choice for me when it was time to select a wedding cake vendor. While I knew from past experience that the product would be delicious, I was less certain about the level of customer service we could expect. Taking care to explore all the options (and eat all the cake!), I scheduled tastings for several other bakeries in the area. Crushcakes not only proved to be the best tasting cake, as I expected, but they were very responsive to our inquiries and were able to deliver to our reception site when others were unavailable. My concerns about customer service turned out to be entirely unfounded. Of course, because my husband loves pie as much as I love cake, we quickly became excited about the idea of offering guests a choice of cupcakes or pielets (or both). Hallie at Simply Pies offered us a great tasting experience and was happy to develop our idea of an off-menu s’mores pie (which turned out great!). We finally settled on 3 flavors of pielets from Simply Pies and 3 flavors of cupcakes from Crushcakes, plus a full, single-layer cake for me and a regular-sized pie for him. It was a lucky coincidence that just as we were ready to finalize our choices, the two businesses joined forces. Understandably, Simply Pies was nearly impossible to reach during the transition, but we had a wonderful experience working with Emily at Crushcakes. From ensuring that each pielet was topped with a heart-shaped crust (previously discussed with Simply Pies) to helping me narrow down my cake-themed Pinterest board to the decorating option that seemed to best encompass my vision, she took care of every detail of our order. Our resulting array of miniature cakes and pies was both beautiful and delicious.

I don't have the biggest sweet tooth, so when it came time to get a cake for our wedding, I felt like I could just close my eyes & pick a flavor. We tried another bakery, which shall remain nameless, and it was very dry. We decided to do a tasting at Crushcakes because the pricing was in our budget, they had simple wedding cake designs & good reviews. The cake was AMAZING! Blew my mind, wow, cake can be this good! On our wedding day, the cake was my favorite thing that I ate all day. We got sooooo many compliments about how good it was. I am giving them 4 stars for service because when we arrived at our scheduled tasting, the person we made the appointment with was out sick so we had to wait about 15-20 minutes before we could talk to someone. It wasn't the end of the world, nor their fault. With that said, their pricing is a great value for the quality of the cake, so it all worked out in the end. We had a 2 tier cake & fresh flowers. On choosing a style, they asked us to email them a photo & they did a pretty good job copying it. They also have pedestals that you can buy or rent for the wedding, so if you are doing a small cake for cutting an another dessert, you can put on a pedestal to make it look more grand. Highly recommend!

SO Delicious!Reviewed on 2/20/2014 Kristine S
Crushcakes was the first place we tasted for our wedding cake and we knew we did not need to go anywhere else. Not only is Crushcakes the best deal you will find in Santa Barbara, their cakes and cupcakes are delicious! The vanilla bean frosting is to die for and the cupcakes are so cute! We had their large 3-tiered cake and multiple flavors of cupcakes for our wedding for 175 people. The cupcakes were gone within 10 minutes, I even had to hide one for myself to eat later!
great brunch for our small weddingReviewed on 7/22/2013 Koreen O
We had our after ceremony brunch at Crushcakes and they did an AMAZING job helping coordinate. We had about 25 people and ate in the outside courtyard area. The food was great and (as always) the cupcakes were delicious! The staff was very attentive and helpful; a great experience!

Not only was the cake and cupcakes gorgeous, they were moist and delicious. I was satisfied with with how everything turned out and was very excited that the flavor was a good as when I tasted it the first time. Crushcakes was also great in delivering the cupcakes as well as providing great service to me. I would definitely choose them again.

Great Cupcakes!!Reviewed on 4/23/2013 Jamie H
We used Crushcakes for our wedding a few weeks and we were very happy with the quality and taste of their cupcakes and our top cake. A little pricy but overall good.
Mini Cupcakes- HUGE HIT!Reviewed on 10/29/2012 Whitney E
We decided to do mini cupcakes for the dessert with just a small round cake for cutting. Our guests LOVED these cupcakes- we received so many compliments! They have a great selection of flavors, delivered to Santa Ynez and were so easy to work with. I would highly recommend using Crush Cakes!
Wedding CakeReviewed on 9/30/2012 jaime p
We had a small cake for cutting, and then an assortment of small and large cupcakes. All of the flavors were amazing - esp the coconut. They're great about letting you get samples to choose your flavors, and the service was wonderful too. Wish I could have a cupcake from there everyday!
Yummy and cute!Reviewed on 2/09/2012 Jessica B
I love cake and baked goods. I was really upset when I was told I was not able to bake my own cake. I am a cake snob. I wanted the best. Crushcakes has it and for a very reasonable price too! The day of the wedding the cupcakes were not only moist and delicious, but beautiful! The process was easy and pleasurable as well, with an easy setup and delivery! I would recommend Crushcakes for many events, along with the Strawberry and Red Velvet cupcakes!
I am still dreaming about the Vanilla Bean CupcakeReviewed on 1/27/2012 Katie R
Delicious cake and cupcakes! Worked perfectly; we had a small round cake for us to cut and then filled the table with an assortment of mini cupcakes (even Vegan options)!
Incredible Wedding CupcakesReviewed on 10/20/2011 Adela W
We got cupcakes as our "wedding cake" from Crushcakes in Santa Barbara. Our order included a cake topper (a small & perfect round cake which we were able to cut) and a variety of delicious cupcakes. They were delivered and set up and ready for us and our guests. Everyone loved them!
