My Groom and I chose three flavors, one for each layer - vanilla cake with vanilla pastry cream and lemon curd filling, strawberry cake with strawberry pastry cream filling, and chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling. Leading up to the wedding, I changed my mind several times on what type of design I wanted for the cake. No matter how many times I changed it, Colleen and Ana were very patient with me and accommodating. They thought of everything, including asking me how large my cake topper was, so they could make sure it would fit. The day of my wedding, they delivered the cake on time and it was exactly what I asked for. All of my guests were raving about how delicious the cake was. It was so good, I had my venue pack up the leftovers so we could take it home! I would highly recommend It’s All About The Cake.

ded on carrot cake with cream cheese, dark chocolate with raspberry, and vanilla with lemon.
Having lived in three states together, we decided to model each of our three tiers after New Orleans, Boulder, and San Pedro. We provided a few photos, and let the experts work their magic. The cake was beautiful. They did a row of fleur de lis on top, a silhouette of the mountains and pine trees in the middle, and shells on the base.
They used shades of ivory and beige which kept it classic and tied the different designs together. The muted colors also kept the design from looking busy. Our guests loved the concept and It’s All About the Cake completely nailed it. The cake was gorgeous and delicious. We were able to try a piece of each the next day that was saved for us. Thank you, It’s All About the Cake!

We were not planning on canceling our tasting and meeting but that’s what ended up happening since she was so rude. After I told her what was going on, she rudely stated “and what do you want me to do about it” and I asked for a rescheduling. I know rescheduling isn’t ideal. My fiancé and I wanted to go to the tasting, we were actually super exited so shooting for a reschedule was what we decided to do. After she rudely spoke to me, she put me on hold for over ten minutes which was bizarre. At that point I was just so fed up with their awful service that I called back and explained the situation, and canceled. There are so many great amazing cake places in Orange County. Don’t waste your time with someone who doesn’t care about clients.

product, because they do an amazing job. Since I didn't know exactly what design I wanted, we got a quote for a "buttercream design", after many emails back and forth and settling on a design, I was informed it would be quite a bit more because it was "detailed". Now I understand charging for your time, but felt it was quite unprofessional that I wasn't told when I got my quote that it only included a simple design. During this constant back and forth Colleen continually messed up how many tiers we had paid for, which tells me either she didn't bother to look it up, or she just didn't care. So either hire some help, or don't take on so many clients, because Brides want to know you care.

They were able to create a solution that fit our budget and satisfied our need for some gluten-free cake. It was suggested to get the two-layer cake gluten-free and then a sheet cake that wasn't gluten-free. Which was genius.
They delivered the cake on time and not only was the cake delicious, it looked amazing. There was a small hiccup where they forgot to deliver our cake on our cake-holder that we gave to them prior. They apologized and delivered our cake stand to us at a later date so all was fine.

The reason why I gave 4 stars for service was the rushed feeling I got when we had our tasting appointment.

After visiting with a couple of bakeries and having tastings my mother and I passed It's All About the Cake and decided to swing in. Best move ever! We were fitted in immediately for a tasting and it blew the other bakeries out of the water. ...
I made the decision to go with It's All About the Cake on the spot and have never regretted that decision. They even sent home a tasting plate for my fiance. I worked with Alexandra for my wedding cake, grooms cake and dessert buffet (my mother worked with her for my shower cake). Let me start with praising Alexandra first -- she is not only adorable but extremely talented. Her cake designs left me speechless. I went in with an idea and she created a masterpiece! My grooms cake was the coolest cake I have ever seen. I gave Alexandra a list of all my husbands interests (he has lots) and free reign to create a show stopping cake. And she did. He was speechless and didn't want to slice it. My wedding cake was a 4-tier slice of heaven. It was elegant, sophisticated, flawless and so me. From the hand made sugar flowers to the delicious butter cream frosting, which was so perfect it looked like fondant, the cake was awesome. Vision aside, the one thing that really matters is taste -- we've all been to weddings where the cake is beautiful but taste not so much. It's All About the Cake uses all natural ingredients and it really comes through in the flavors. It was so good my guests were asking for a slice of each layer. It was the most delicious cake I have ever eaten. I also ordered a variety of mini pastries and cookies for a late night dessert buffet. All I can say is there were no leftovers. Once my guests had a taste of one they kept going back for more. The staff at It's All About the Cake were professional, talented, punctual and a pleasure to work with.

! Best wedding cake we've ever had! Not dry like some cakes can be & the flavor was stupendeous. We chose white cake with lemon curd & raspberry filling.

At first we weren't going to go with them, but Alexandra worked with us to meet the price range we had and still got our tiered cake that we wanted. They make buttercream finishes look like fondant. Beautiful work. But what really matters is...
the taste and it's great! The make all of their cake and fillings, with organic ingredients and you can tell! That was important to us since other bakeries tasted more like cake mix....super sugary! The chocolate cake is good, but the white cake with cream and strawberries was amazing! We got so many compliments! We are requesting this flavor for our 1 year cake topper since my husband didn't actually get to try it the day of the wedding!

We got a two-tiered cake from It's All About the Cake as part of our wedding package at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott and we couldn't have been happier with how it turned out. Alexandra was incredibly helpful and patient with us, we settled on one...
design at the tasting and when we wanted to change it completely she was totally fine with it. I wanted a very modern looking cake and though I wasn't completely sure about the details of the design I wanted they came up with a design that looked fantastic. We were so impressed with their cake designs that we decided to order custom sailboat cookies decorated with our names and the wedding date as favors. Not only were the cookies absolutely adorable, they were delicious too. I will definitely go back to It's All About the Cake for future special occasions.

Not only was this the best wedding cake we've had; it's the best cake we have EVER had. From our first bite at our tasting, my husband and I knew we were going to book them for our wedding.
It's All About The Cake had many cake combinations...
to offer us. We believe we picked the best flavors for our three tier cake, including: red velvet, marble with cappuccino, and chocolate raspberry. We cannot wait to pick up our One Year Anniversary cake! We highly recommend them for any occasion.

er than Sprinkle's red velvet. Since I had 250 guests, I got a 5-tier cake and every tier could be customized for both the cake and the icing. They delivered the cake on time and it looked exactly as the picture I selected. The guests rave about the cake. I have to say the cake did not taste as good as the tasting cake, probably because the tasting portion was smaller so of course, quality control was easier. But still, I was really satisfied with their cake and would recommend this store any time.

When I went around asking for cake recommendations in Orange County it was just about unanimous that I HAD to go to It's All About the Cake. This turned out to be very good advice.
The hardest decision we had was picking which of the flavor...
s we were going to go with since they all delicious. Once we narrowed that down Alex worked with us to decide the perfect design. She was so helpful since my husband and I didn't have the 'exact' image I'm sure we weren't the easiest to work with. But she was patient and helped us craft the perfect cake.
The final cake came out beautiful and I think seeing guests with multiple slices on their plates and the lack of left overs speaks to how great they were (we did red velvet and strawberries and cream).
We also used It's All About the Cake for a day after brunch for my Husband and my Aunt's birthday. She did an intricate cake that had a horse themed on one side representing the country (where my aunt lives) and crabs and sand representing MD (where my husband is from). As with the wedding cake it looked and tasted amazing.
They are definitely a must!
