Wedding Cake

Hoping for a friendly recommendation for a wonderful wedding cake artist for our first born daughters wedding at a historical landmark in Santa Barbara/Ventura County on March 15, 2014, for about 150 guests. We want this to be special! Please, no snarky comments!

fresco five points makes wonderful cakes to order, just give them lots of notice. i have also gotten great cakes from the sojourner, again, they need some lead time. congrats to your daughter.

Robyn Loves Cake. Great service, inspired designs. Google name or just string it together with the usual dot com suffix and take a look at her amazing designs.

I second Wayne Kjar, he was wonderful to work with and the cake tasted amazing! He even offers an anniversary cake, so you don't have to worry about keeping that top tier for a year ;) In fact, I will be contacting him soon for MY anniversary cake! Call him now! 805-845-5519

After the bride, I think the cake is a star of the event. Good luck getting what you want. I'm guessing the wedding is a way off, but please post a picture of the cake afterwards.

Wayne Kjar Cakes (now "Your Cake Baker") should be your only call. His designs are extraordinary and he can duplicate your own designs as well. His cake is the best in Santa Barbara.

I third Wayne Kjar; an amzaing cake decorator who makes really yummy cakes. I used to order cakes for the Bio Dept at UCSB. He is such an artist that he could draw all sorts of appropriate critters for the person we were honoring!

Go to him!!

I worked with Amber from Songbird Cakes (on Facebook) in Carpenteria for my wedding cake. She was so lovely and went out of her way to make sure our day was perfect by making a special stand just for our style of cake. Check out her Facebook page!

Christine Dahl-our cake was gorgeous..but it tasted even better! She even did cupcakes to go with! AND she cost way less than what we expected...best spent money in the wedding!

Apparently the excellent cake baker from Hennings' cakes downtown is now running a pastry shop on the Mesa. Sorry I don't have the details.

Please check out from experience both Montecito Confections and Wayne on the Mesa. It depends on your price point and elegance. Katie at Montecito is artistic, beautiful and pricey (worth it) and Wayne is tasty, pretty, and par for a wedding and less expensive. You won't be disappointed with either......

I used Christine Dahl and she is wonderful to work with and makes that aspect of wedding planning perfect and without worry. She came to my wedding site and personally placed flowers on my cake (a modest cake by today's standards) to make it look classical and gorgeous -- exactly how I wanted it. And everyone loved her cake.
