This was a destination wedding for us. We used to live in San Diego but moved to Connecticut due to the military. Having no idea who to look to for a wedding cake, I did some research online and came across Cute Cakes (Downtown). From the first time I called them, they were very... Read More professional. I wanted a semi-naked cake and I was told that can be difficult to make so to make sure that the Bakery I picked could make them. Cute Cakes said it wasn't a problem and even sent me pictures of wedding cakes they had done that were semi-naked. When I flew home for my bridal shower, I made arrangements to do my tasting. The set up in their store was amazing. It made me feel special! Since my fiancé couldn't attend, I took my maid of honor instead. The different cakes we tried were amazing. We were given the option to taste 6 different kinds of cakes and ended up picking 4 since I had 3 layers and a sheet cake. The day of the wedding, the cake was delivered to our hotel just a block away and I paid them extra to put some flowers (from my florist) onto the cake just like a picture I had given to Cute Cakes. The cake tasted amazing at the wedding too! I made sure to sit down and enjoy 2 different kinds with my new husband. Overall, Cute Cakes in Downtown did a wonderful job and I would go back to them again.

We utilized Cute Cakes, as our cake was included as part of our overall cost from our location (Paradise Point), and CuteCakes was one of their preferred vendors. As soon as we went for our first tasting, I knew we had found a winner. We worked with Emily through our entire... Read More process, and she and her team could not have been nicer! We adjusted some of their favorites/standard flavors. We ended up getting a 6 tier, 3 flavor cake, which all of our guests loved. We also opted to get a few vegan and gluten free cupcakes on the side. Not only did they knock out our guest cake, but they also made an adorable, awesome and tasty grooms cake in the shape of a packers cheesehead. I would highly recommend using Cute Cakes!

I used the gaslamp location for my wedding on 6/10/17. I am extremely allergic to milk and anything dairy, so I was very nervous and unsure if I could get a wedding cake that would accomodate that.

Plus they made it look pretty too! They did an amazing job and I definitely recommend them! Thank you Cute Cakes!

We had such a great experience with Cute Cakes for our wedding last summer. They had us into their store for a tasting which was in an adorable room and everything was set up and presented beautifully. Everything tasted amazing and at the end we made on our selections for a... Read More small two-tiered wedding cake and a few dozen mini cupcakes. When they told us the total we were very pleasantly surprised that it was much less than we expected – probably due to the fact that the cake was a simple design, but we still thought they would overcharge simply because it was a wedding cake. On the day everything turned out wonderfully with the cake and cupcakes looking and tasting better than we could have imagined. Definitely recommend them for weddings and other events!
