Oh my goodness, Bees! I have found the most wonderful wedding cake baker: Sumi’s Oven (http://www.sumisoven.com/).
I had a terrible time finding someone. I found two great places at a bridal show, but they were too far for reasonable delivery prices. After trying three other local places and being terribly disappointed, I ventured a bit outside my North County hometown and tried Sumi’s Oven in Mira Mesa. She charges $15 for a cake testing, but she has impeccable reviews on several sites, so I decided to go for it.
Mmmm… cake. *insert Homer-Simpson-like sounds*
Sumi’s Oven only does made-to-order cakes and desserts–you can’t just walk in and buy a slice, ready-made (which is so sad, considering how good it is!!!). It was by far the best cake I have ever tasted. She gave us six choices for the tasting and we had a terrible time paring the flavors down to three for the cake. They were all spectacular!–creative, fresh and wonderful. Her photos of actual wedding cakes were gorgeous and showed a tremendous range of styles. She even does whipped cream icing on wedding cakes!
The customer service was also impeccable. She didn’t rush us, was very straight-forward and informative, and ready to work within our small budget. She also didn’t bat an eyelash at my casual and somewhat unconventional ideas for the cake.
My mother and I have been raving about her ever since, telling everyone we know that if they need a custom cake, go to Sumi’s! I still get this dreamy look on my face everytime I think of her.
I can’t wait to see how our cake turns out, ’cause I know it’s going to be wonderful!
