Olga is the best baker in all of Austin! She is endlessly creative in the flavors and designs she creates. We had to reschedule our big wedding for July 2021, but she still made us a cake for our minimony on our original wedding date of June 20...
20 and we were so grateful for that. We finally got to have our big celebration and she put together a dreamy dessert spread for us -- a modern bride’s cake, a realistic drum groom’s cake (my husband is a band director and he was so excited about his cake), mini cupcakes in four flavors and two kinds of cookies. It looked beautiful and tasted delicious -- guests were telling me how much they enjoyed the sweets and wanted to know where they were from. The cherry on top is that Olga is one of the sweetest people and kindest small business owners in town. It’s now been a decade of me enjoying her treats, and I look forward to enjoying more of them for other special milestones in the future. We appreciate her time and talents, and know you will to for your big day!

My husband, on the other hand, requested a replica of his wedding day gift, an Audemars Piguet watch! The watch cake Olga created was spot-on and both cakes were gorgeous!

r our first few tastings, Olga from Polkadots offered to do another tasting with us to help us make up our minds. It sounds weird but wedding cake is one of my favorite parts of any wedding, and so it was really important to me that we had a super delicious cake (which is surprisingly hard to find, even in a big market like Austin). In addition to being so friendly and fun to work with, Olga's commitment to making sure we got EXACTLY what we wanted in terms of cake flavors really stands out in my mind among all of our great vendor experiences. She was so flexible with us as we went back and forth about different icing and cake flavor combos, finally settling on three different cakes (one of which was a three-tier with two different flavors in it). We were less particular about design, and just sent her a couple of inspiration images, which actually had me, worrying leading up to the wedding that the cakes wouldn't look the way I'd hoped. On the day of the wedding when I walked into the venue to get ready, the cakes were the first thing that I saw and they absolutely blew me away with how beautiful they were. Even with our very limited guidance, Olga did a truly spectacular job making the cakes fit with the overall feel of our wedding and look just so, so beautiful. As I was waiting with my dad to walk down the aisle we were actually near the cakes again, and I couldn't stop commenting on how pretty they were (we got lots of complements from guests as well). Later in the night when we got to try the cake (we tried the funfetti one with strawberry cream cheese icing - sadly we were too busy dancing to get to try the others), I was so thrilled with how it had turned out taste-wise - a super moist, delicious wedding cake is rare and Olga nailed it. The little favor cookies that she made were also a huge hit and really made the place settings look special; we had a few leftover that we brought with us on our honeymoon and we continued to enjoy them for two weeks after the wedding. As someone who tried many different cake vendors in Austin before deciding to go with Olga, I can't encourage you enough to use Polkadots for you wedding. You won't be disappointed!

We did not have the chance to try the cake during the wedding but we had slices packed for us to take back to the hotel and I wish we were able to take the entire cake home. It was TO DIE FOR. Actually way better than what we tasted with the cupcakes. I am extremely happy that the cake turned out so amazing, but disappointed that I could not eat it all (yes "I" not "we", I likely would not have shared with my husband - it was that good).

We used them via Crave catering for the Grooms cake and the Wedding cake. They made an amazing baseball stadium for the grooms cake and mine was a simple, very small cake that was beautiful. They also made cake balls for us to pass around the w...
edding. They gave us so many samples for the both the cakes and cake balls and then when my husband wanted a certain kind for his grooms cake, they made us a little mini cake for him to try. I do not like cake, nor do I eat it rarely, but theirs were amazing. They made mine just the way I wanted it, lots of icing and little cake. I was very impressed that I actually wanted to eat more after we cut it! I am not sure about the exact pricing since it went in with the caterer, but I believe it was affordable, even the fun grooms cake! :)

My husband and I are so happy we chose Polkadots Cupcake Factory to do our cakes. The main cake was exactly what I had envisioned and more. We did a strawberry cake and I feel like strawberry cake is one of the harder flavors to pull off. They ...
did it beautifully. So many people have asked me about our cake, even months after the wedding! The groom's cake and mini cupcakes were perfect too! Olga is a delight to work with and her cakes are so flavorful and unique. When I arrived to the venue, she was setting up the cakes and I was so happy with what I saw I gave her a big hug! We'll be a customer of Polkadots forever. I highly recommend them for any of your cake needs, but especially for your special day!

Olga and Polkadots is really as good as it gets. She made our wedding cake (lemon and strawberry shortcake layers). It was divine, and I had so many guests tell me just that, if not in person, than via email to share their raves. Our cake was b...
eautifully designed, moist, delicious, not overly sweet, on-time. They even sent us home with cupcakes after our wedding, which were the best treat after the big day. I've been to so many weddings where the cake looked pretty, but was such a sugary and flavorless afterthought. Not with Polkadots...they'll remember it. Thank you so very much!

Ever since Polkadots opened near UT's campus during my time at school I KNEW that they would have to be the ones to do my wedding cake. Olga and her team not only make delicious desserts, but they're so pretty too! Working with her was so easy ...
and fun and she really was able to give us everything we wanted---a little wedding cake for cutting, mini cupcakes, and mini cookies--something for every palate! And on the day of the wedding she even gave us a little goodie bag complete with the full-size version of the cupcakes we served and a very sweet card. We could not be happier with how everything turned out and I cannot wait to get back to Austin and Olga's delicious cupcakes!

Both my husband and I have been LONG-time patrons of Polkadots (I think since they opened). I had and still have an unhealthy craving for cupcakes on an almost weekly basis and Polkadots let me indulge myself :p Since we've been enjoying their ...
cupcakes since we were undergrads at UT, it was a no-brainer to have them make our sweets for our wedding!
Olga was very prompt in communicating through email and we set up a tasting/planning session soon after I first contacted her. At the tasting, the cupcakes were, of course, delicious and moist! Olga even went through the trouble of recreating a cake flavor J & I were looking for but couldn't find. She was also very helpful in suggesting different ways we can display our cupcakes. Polkadots has platters and display towers you can rent, so you don't have to worry about having to contact yet another vendor for those things.
On the day of our wedding, the delivery went off without a hitch! All of our guests enjoyed the cupcakes and the variety of flavors. Olga even made a special to-go box of cupcakes for me and J - we weren't expecting it, so we were pleasantly surprised :o)
The only reason why I took off a star for quality was because the cake was more pink than I was expecting. This might have been because of miscommunication/colors not displaying the same on different computer monitors. I was hoping for a light pink/blush color but I received a bubblegum pink cake. I was also hoping to see a picture of me & J's cake on Polkadot's Flickr page along w/all the other pretty cakes and cookies but it wasn't there.
Overall, we had a very good experience w/Olga and Polkadots. We still walk over to the shop for a cupcake every now and then!

I highly recommend Polkadots, it was the second best decision I made during our wedding planning.. second only to my husband.

Polkadots Cupcakes are my favorite sweet treat vendor in the central Austin area. I decided to forgo the traditional wedding cake route for my reception at Laguna Gloria this past October. I knew I wanted cupcakes but still wanted a "wedding-li...
ke" flare to them. Olga was extremely helpful in helping me create a cupcake tower and suggested a gorgeous glittering fondant cake for the top (its in our freezer until our 1 year anniversary) I taste tested five cupcake places in Austin and can tell you Polkadots cake and icing is the best. We had an array of flavors -- cinnamon vanilla was my favorite but the chocolate peanut butter was the biggest hit at our wedding. Polkadots was super easy to work with and best of all it tasted great!! I would highly recommend!!

Olga was quick and creative with her design and listened to what we wanted, but wasn't afraid to tell us if something wouldn't work (ex: designs with buttercream vs. designs with fondant). Polkadots was also very accommodating with dietary needs for our gluten free guests who got their very own spread of equally delicious cupcakes.
Go for a wedding cake, or a simple cupcake craving -- you won't be disappointed!!

dn't have a very clear idea of what I wanted for my cake, Olga came up with a great idea to use my wedding dress as a guide. The cake was beautiful.

gh that there was no way to tell the difference between the actual cake with buttercream, and the dummy layers with fondant. So, my cake was gorgeous AND good!

astic she was and how easy she would be to work with. Another cupcake place that shall remain unnamed didn't seem all that interested in our business, so we went with Polkadots.
After tasting a ton of cupcakes, we decided on 4 flavors. A huge chunk of our guests were Vegan so Olga let us taste even more cupcake flavors so we could decide on an eggless flavor and to make sure they were still tasty. The Honey & Chai ended up being our eggless flavor, and they were a HUGE hit at the wedding! You couldn't even tell that it's eggless, it tasted so moist and delicious. We got compliments throughout the night and next day about how great the cupcakes were.
Olga also made a cutting cake at the top of our cupcake tower and the grooms cake, both of which she modeled off images I sent her, and they came out great! Most of our guests couldn't even tell that the grooms cake was a cake. Even the fondant, which is usually known to taste like crap, was so delicious that my sister and mom would cut pieces of the leftover cake a few days later just to eat it.
To top everything off, Polkadots cupcakes are so affordable. We were on a budget and Olga worked with us so we could still get what we wanted. I can't recommend Polkadots enough!
