VG donuts was a recommendation from a co-worker for their wedding cake. At first I thought it was crazy to go to a donut shop for a wedding cake, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way! When we picked up the cakes for the tastings there was a...
massive line because their donuts are amazing (as long as you prepay you don’t have to wait in line at all- and everything was super quick at pick up.)
Megan was awesome with all of her help with picking flavors and helping decide how much of what we needed. She was super helpful and made our experience exceptional since she was our point person!
Let me just say walking into our venue- our cake was absolutely gorgeous! It was situated next to our sweetheart table and it was an absolute beautiful cake- and exactly as I had pictured!!! When we did our cake cutting, we immediately had planned to go into the bouquet toss after- and the coordinator had to pull me away from my cake- yes it was that good! I actually ate a piece for breakfast the following day haha. We also added on brownie bites, chocolate chip cookies and the macaroons for some quick bites and everyone raved most about how it was the best cookies they’ve ever had!!!
To sum it all up, the people are phenomenal, it was exceptional for taste, they are priced extremely well, and the cake was absolutely beautiful!
I would choose them time and time again for and cake needs!!!

For our original wedding plan, we had submitted an order of enough donuts for 200 and a giant cake - due to covid we decided to have major downsize of our wedding and VG Donuts was more than accommodating. We ended up ordering approx 100 donuts...
still and an adorable naked cake. Not only did they change or order with no hassle but our new order was delicious and ready for pickup when we needed it! We had a great experience and are so glad we used their services for our wedding. They were even will to deliver, but it was not necessary as a friend lived super close. Recommend them fr your special day 10000%

Quick to respond, helpful with any questions we had, and kind.

s a win for us. We worked with Janette and she was very nice and accommodating to our requests. The cake tasting was amazing! We had to pick the type of cake we wanted and the type of filling. And here is the best part… we weren’t just given slices of the cakes… we were provided with two whole sample cakes! (You can order additional sample cakes for $5). The cakes were delicious! We picked our flavors after the tasting and also got mini donuts with lemon jelly filling for the guest favors/dessert station. On our wedding day, the cake was delivered on time, it tasted absolutely delicious, and the mini donuts were almost all gone by the end! You also don’t have to worry about saving the top tier of your cake, they will bake you an identical cake of the top tier on your anniversary!

VG donut did a beautiful job on our wedding cake. Their communication was always very fast as well. The only problem I had is that our wedding cake flavors were incorrect. Please make sure you 100% review your confirmations to ensure everything...
is correct. This was my fault yes, but it becomes overwhelming reviewing everything for every vendor a week before the wedding. The one flavor I was really looking forward to was missing, but again, my fault for not paying close attention to detail. Other than that, the cake was beautiful and tasted good. Side note: your florist must decorate with flowers, as the bakery will not if that's what you're looking for.

We opted to get the bigger size cake and we are so glad we did because all of our guests went back for second piece of cake and by the end of the night there was only a few slices left. The donuts are phenomenal!! Although we did not do a donut bar we had 3 of our favorite donuts and our guests could not get enough of how delicious and fresh they were.

Not a big deal except it's one more thing I have to coordinate on an extremely hectic day and every other vendor I used was so understanding and forthcoming with their information. The reason I removed a star is mainly because they wouldn't even give out the driver's phone number so I couldn't call to check on the status of the cake the day of which made getting through security 10X more complicated. To be fair they did warn me that they wouldn't give out any personal information when we booked them. I just didn't realized that meant that I would be stressing about the cake the entire morning of my wedding. Could you get a business cell phone or something to help us out please?

and your spouse-to-be, with family, whoever you want! I loved being able to take my sample flavors home to our in-law's and taste testing together... and also taking to our catering tasting to see what complemented our meals.
They offer two complimentary 7" sample cakes, and each one after is $5.
We decided to go with the Chocolate and Raspberry bavarian cream combo and it was DELICIOUS. We still have guests telling us about how yummy the cake was.
What's special for us is that VG's was one of the first places my husband and I visited when he first showed me around San Diego, his home town. It became our go-to bakery for coffee and donuts (usually after a trip to Pipes for breakfast burritos). So it was a no brainer we'd choose it for our wedding cake.
The decoration of our cake turned out so beautiful. We worked with Janette for all of our cake needs/questions and she was pretty good at getting back with answers and suggestions.
Now we did go with a design we had found ourselves across different Pinterest/Image search sites and tried to make our own, and we ended up working out a compromise for the design ideas because some ideas may have been a bit too complex to work out. I ended up loving the cake design we got from the bakery and so many loved and took pics of it also.

avor. The only “trouble” with so many flavors is that it is hard to taste them all! Their tasting is kind of cool because you get to take home two whole 7 inch cakes for free! If you want to try more you just pay a small fee and get to take home whatever you want. Don’t be fooled by the “small” amount of frosting…day of the cakes are beautiful and have a great amount of frosting (buttercream), cake and filling! They were prompt on delivery which was great. And best of all you get great cake at a very reasonable price for wedding cakes. VG Donuts are incredibly busy though so there is a lot of “call backs” rather than talking to the right person right away. One other bonus is that they give you a full 7 inch cake for your 1 year so you don’t need to keep the top of your cake if you don’t want to.

She answered all questions quickly and made sure we got the best bang for our buck within our allotted budget. the desserts were so good the whole bar was empty before we even cut the cake! I will definitely remember and use VGs for future dessert needs, and have already recommended to friends and family!

Our cake was absolutely amazing! And we did a donut bar to accompany it. We have been getting donuts from VG's for years, so when it was time to get married, my husbands only request was for a donut bar. Obviously VG's was the choice. They ...
were also recommended to us by so many people for our cake too. I have always heard that VG's cakes are amazing...and they did not disappoint. The cake was so good (even though I actually only got a few bites)! It was super moist, and they offered great flavors. There tasting process was really fun too...they made us two small cakes to take home and taste with our family! Our parents got to enjoy the tasting as well. My cake turned out so beautiful, and exactly how I wanted it. They do not use fondant, so I was a little worried when I brought them a picture of a fondant cake. But they used buttercream frosting (which is way better anyhow), and it turned out so smooth, it looked just like the fondant cake picture that I brought them. And you don't have to save the top of your cake; they give you a free one on your anniversary. I am looking forward to finally getting to eat some of our wedding cake next April:)
One last thing to say...the price was unbeatable! I had a three tiered wedding cake for under $400. This was the best deal around, and the most delicious!

ey send you home with two 8inch round cakes to try at home and you can order additional cakes for $5 each. This seemed a little weird and restrictive since you can't taste all the flavors and fillings, you need to have a better idea of what you want already. We mixed the flavors and fillings around and had white cake with strawberry and cream filling and did the chocolate cake with mocha filling and have banana cake with cream for our topping. The cake was moist and very tasty. We ordered a cake for 150 people for 50 guests and though we would have a lot left, but people actually ate the cake because it was so good. We and our family and friends also kept eating the left-overs the few days after the wedding that everyone was still in town, so the cake didn't go to waste! Jess is busy so she can be difficult to get a hold of by phone, but everything worked out. Also the delivery was late but our wedding coordinator got them there on time. They gave us extra macaroons to make up for it which we certainly didn't mind! I would definitely recommend them!

One note: they don't do traditional tastings here. You order two types of cake/filling that you want to try and they give you full (small) cakes to take home and taste with family and friends. We had a blast doing the taste test ahead of time with friends! There was some confusion about this process though, and they had to rush our cakes through. Be sure to put in your order when you make your appointment to avoid the confusion.
Last little tidbit- they don't believe in eating frozen cake, so instead of saving your top tier they give you a free anniversary cake! Way more delicious and just as special, if you ask me.
