Takes The Cake recently did my husband's groom's cake and it turned out great. Very whimsical. It had an outdoor theme and were able to incorporate the funny cake topper I got at Michael's without a problem. The cake was white with a raspberry filling and was quite tasty. Fresh. I still go to them when I need a specialty cake for a birthday or other special occasion. They can be on the pricey side, but I don't mind that for a special event.

Pros: Tastes good, looks good

Cons: Can be a little pricey

I decided to get my wedding cake at Takes the Cake because the staff was very helpful and they had a large book of sample cakes I thought exhibited their artistry. I brought a picture of the cake that I wanted and was assured that they would make it look just like the picture. $500+ later, on the day of my wedding, everything was lovely, except the cake. It looked like someone had made it at home. It looked nothing like the picture I had given them. There was no "color" on the cake at all as I had requested and it was such a disappointment that my husband and I almost didn't want to draw attention to it by cutting it. We did, and the cake itself was not as good as ones we have gotten for birthdays from Costco. Something obviously went wrong. I believe that they lost my order and on the day of the wedding tried to come up with something, but needless to say, the work was very unprofessional and I would not recommend this bakery to anyone for wedding or special event cakes.

Pros: The person who assisted me seemed to understand my desires.

Cons: Failure to follow-through and provided a below-average product on my wedding day.

TTC is the best around. Their cakes are not only beautifully creative, but they taste great! From traditional birthday cakes to wedding extravaganzas "Takes The Cake" certainly does!

I've had several special occasion cakes done here. Just go in and look at their notebook of cake designs they've done. There's everything from Star Wars, to Dragons, to sports scenes, to traditional flowers-n-fluff, and that's just the kid's designs...I wish I knew about this place for our wedding.

Our last cake, we brought in a picture of rockets & galaxies from a children's book. Their "cake media" reproduction was amazing and drew ohs/ahs from the party goers.

I can't recommend this shop enough for special occasions. The only other bakery I'd consider is Patti Cakes in Altadena, if I wanted something nicely sophisticated.

PROS: Simply the best cake decorating I've seen
CONS: You might find slightly tastier cakes

Takes the Cake created my wedding cake. What a wonderful presentation! From the initial cake tasting to the actual day, they did a beautiful job. I really appreciated their attention to detail. Most of the other places I interviewed gave me slices of cake, but Takes the Cake went the extra mile and made full mini cakes of each flavor we were interested in. Almost from that point I was sold. Then I tasted and that sealed the deal. Beautiful and delicious! I can't say enough!
