freesia39,

Check out Jen’s Cakes in Los Gatos. (www.jenscakes.com) Her cakes start at $5 a slice, which, for the Bay Area, is a great starting price for a specialty cake place. 

We went for a tasting and it was really yummy! It was one of few reputable places that had cake starting at $5 and not $7. 

Hope that helps!

I’ve heard great things about Bev Tanaka – unfortunately, she’s already booked for my wedding date!  She only does buttercream frosting but i hear her cakes are amazingly delicious and the prices are the cheapest I have heard of in the Bay Area at $2.50/slice.

You might also want to check out La Patisserie in Cupertino.  I’m not sure how much their wedding cakes cost, but I’m getting cupcakes for my wedding at $1.25 each.

You might be totally against the idea, and I’m ok with that, but did you think of checking at Safeway or other grocery stores?  When ever I walk past their (Safeway’s) bakery, the cakes look amazing (I’m still suprised I haven’t taken one home!), but I haven’t tried any of them.  I don’t know what their cost is, but they might be cheaper than a wedding cake specific place.

I second JCM’s suggestion!  FI and I are using Jen’s Cakes too….we went to several cake tastings before Jen’s Cakes and those were all so-so.  After the tasting at Jen’s Cakes, we booked them that same day.  Their cakes are so yummy and well-priced.  To make things less expensive, we are using a sheet cake with just a two -tier cake and its definitely under $5/slice…I think its more like $3 something bc of the sheet cake.

peaches,

We booked on the same day right after the tasting as well. Maybe it was you and your FI that I ran into towards the end of your tasting. 😛

We’re tasting with Jen’s Cakes today! I’m really excited; we’ve heard such good things.

We’ve tasted with Sugar Butter Flour in Sunnyvale (really good! and they’re about $5-6 per person) and Not Just Cheesecakes in Campbell (really good too, but the owner is super talkative, about $6 per person).

We’ll be going with Sugar Butter Flour. Even though their wedding cakes are $7/slice, they’ve got great alternative to bring the price down. You can have a small cake for cutting and then have a sheet cake which is more like $3/slice or do small individual desserts for $3.50/piece which can be fun. Check out their website for pictures. We also liked them better because they seemed much more friendly and accomodating on ideas (without charging extra for reasonable requests).

We are using Cake Expressions in San Jose. They had the best prices and they were 2007’s best cake baker according to theknot.com. We are going for simplictity too and they had it. Plus their mango filling is to die for!!
