What area or LA are you looking at (Hollywood, the Valley, Southbay, etc.)?

We tried cakes at two places – Sweet and Saucy in Long Beach (sweetandsaucyshop.com) and Flour and Flower Designs in South OC (flourandflowerdesigns.com).  Our wedding planner recommended both – and we loved both but ended up using Flour and Flower simply because of the better price. Haven’t seen the cake yet but we’re looking forward to it!

I would suggest taking a look at this person’s list of places they’ve tried. I’ve been to a few of them and I agree with her for the most part.

ETA: We LOVED Susina’s. I wish I could live there and sleep on a bed made of the berry blossom cake. Yea, it’s that good. Pricey but good. We eneded up going with King’s Hawaiian. They had the best balance of taste and affordability.

I used Hotcakes Bakes in Culver City. Had a cupcake tower with a small cake on top. DELICIOUS. Amazing, fabulous customer service as well.

We are going with Torrance Bakery.  Awesome, awesome and got great reviews.  Porto’s is also great.  We did a tasting at Great Dane, and were not fans.  I’d recommend Torrance to anyone!

Skiff’s Bakery in Simi Valley – consistently rated as one of the best bakeries for wedding cakes.  The prices are fairly reasonable since its in the valley and not in LA.  We got the same type of wedding cake for my bridal shower.  It was so good everyone was asking for seconds and when I took home the leftovers, I ate all 6 leftover pieces for dinner.  I’m crazy religious about watching my weight… so doing that was a major thing for me.  It was sooo good.

Try Cakery Bakery in La Canada Flintridge. They are family owned and their cakes are super moist and delicious!

I think you should definitely check out Torrance bakery in Torrance or Becker’s Bakery in Manhattan Beach. Both have amazing cakes and do some exceptional work.

Plus, they’re both REALLY yummy! 🙂

I loved Great Dane in Seal Beach.  I’ve been to Porto’s too and they have yummy yummy cakes.  Torrance Bakery…I didn’t like their customer service, the day we went there I think the rep was having a bad day and was really rude to us.   Great Dane’s also has a one year anniversary cake that they make for you, which sealed the deal for us.
