We got a three tiered wedding cake and some cupcakes from Lisa for our wedding in August. All of the flavors were fantastic!! Lisa was really easy to work with as well which is so nice for a bride with a lot of stress! My only small critique wa...

Lisa baked our 4 tier wedding cake with 4 different flavors and we couldn’t have been happier! We met with one other baker recommended by our wedding venue and Lisa’s cake blew that cake out of the water! She uses butter which gives the cakes a...

Lisa killed it on both the grooms cake and our wedding cake. The grooms cake was pistachio cake, pistachio mousse and pistachio buttercream and it go so many compliments. Not only on the decoration which came out great but on the cake itself. F...
or our wedding cake we went traditional with vanilla and chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream. I did not want any fondue and Lisa was on board. In addition we didnt want a white, traditional wedding cake. She heard our idea and ran with it, our cake was the night sky meeting the sea, covered in stars and sealife it was perfect. Tastefully done but so much fun! I cannot say enough nice things and highly recommend Lisa.

ry cream frosting, red velvet, and double vanilla). We had a custom cake stand built and she did an amazing job setting it up for us! The cake was absolutely delicious too! Our June wedding was more humid than we had expected and the cupcakes and cake sat outside which I was nervous about -- but they withstood the heat just fine. Everyone raved about the cupcakes, and even were able to take some home as our caterer left to-go boxes next to the station!

My white birch wedding cake may have been the star of my wedding. Working with Lisa was not only enjoyable, but seemed to read my mind. I live in Washington state, and my wedding was in Rhode Island. I was nervous describing my vision, but she ...

As someone who likes to bake I was adamant that for my wedding I wanted our cake to actually taste good (most cakes, wedding included, tend to leave me unimpressed). We got to sample Lisa's cake when we did our food tasting with Ivy's Simply Ho...
memade and we all thought it was great. We arranged for a tasting appointment and were wowed by the variety of cakes/fillings/frostings we got to sample and everything was extraordinarily delicious! One of the most fun parts of wedding planning by far!
For the our wedding day we wanted a small cake for the cutting and mini cupcakes on sticks set in mason jars for our guests. Lisa totally understood our vision and the guests were wowed by how adorable the dessert table looked. If you want cake that is going to be both beautiful and taste incredible, do yourself a favor and give Lisa a call. (And be sure to try the strawberry cake!)

We worked with Lisa to design a simple yet beautiful three-tiered cake, as well as a sheet cake. Lisa was extremely knowledgeable and flexible throughout the whole process, and her cake was delicious! We did a free tasting and had trouble narro...
wing it down to two flavors. (We ended up with a mocha/dark chocolate buttercream frosted cake AND a raspberry/lemon curd cake).
Lisa made everything super easy - she dropped the cake off at our reception and even let us borrow a cakestand. She was also very reasonably priced.
The best way to reach YTTC is by calling - being a one-woman show, Lisa does not respond to email very frequently.

We worked with Lisa. To start, she asked so many questions about what we were looking for, and she never pushed any flavors or combinations on us. She allowed us to try anything we wanted. I loved that - so many other cake vendors we spoke t...
o had an attitude about what flavors "didn't" go together. Lisa sat down with us and gave us her full attention. We did 150 cupcakes - 50 in 3 different flavors with 3 different frostings, and one individual round cake for my husband and I. The only thing I wanted on the B&G cake were "swim-bike-run" stick figures (we are both triathletes) going around the side of the cake. I sent Lisa a picture, and she did it PERFECTLY! The colors came out beautifully, and she even added some extra touches around the bottom edge and top to make it look even more perfect. Everything looked picture perfect and the tastes were unbelievable. I had friends and family calling me the morning after the wedding to ask f we had any leftover cupcakes they could take home. They were soft, delicious, and didn't fall apart or crumble - the perfect consistency. The cake was the same. Lisa was a joy to work with - she was available via phone or email, and always called or emailed back within just a couple of hours (she is a one woman show and really can rock it!). I didn't worry one bit about the drop-off, set-up, etc. She gave all directions to our caterer so I had nothing to stress about the day of!

We shopped around for a good baker and Lisa's was the only one at which my husband scraped the plate after the tasting in order to get all of the frosting. She made us five different varieties of cupcakes (120 in all), plus a small cake for us ...
to cut and another to freeze, and it was all less than $250. Plus she was incredibly friendly and helpful. I highly recommend You Take the Cake if you're looking for a delicious treat to finish up your wedding meal. Try the tres leches variety--it's out of this world! We actually order this cake from her from time to time just because it's so amazing. So glad the bakery is on the way home from work!

e to take the leftovers home, the rest of the cake literally fell apart. The cake was made to have certain layers and the top part just slipped off the bottom part and there was really no saving it besides eating whatever was left right then and there. I would refer You Take the Cake to other brides because of the price, especially if you are a bride like i was only had $5000 to plan a wedding. In that regard, Lisa really helped me out. My cake was only $280 total.
