I went tasting at several different places and was very disappointed. I was discouraged and did not think I would find a cake that tasted fantastic and would also be creative as well as beautiful. You have to make an appoinment to taste. This was much better than some of these very busy bakeries where they slap a few pieces of cake on a plastic plate and are rushing between clients. Everything was set up beautifully. We were offered hot, fresh coffee, there was bottled water and the samples of cake were amazing. The chocolate with Valhrona chocolate pearls was moist, rich but not overpowering and it just tasted great. The flavors popped. The red velvet with a cream cheese and white Valhrona chocolate filling was the best red velvet cake I have ever tasted. My favorite was the lemon/lavendar poppyseed with lemon curd. I was a little skeptical of lavendar but it adds just that subtle something that makes if a little different. Mendy took her time explaining that she prepares everything from scratch and we discussed designs. I have had trouble making up my mind about what my cake should look like. I wanted something a little different. This was a great experience and it made up for the other disappointing tastings I went to. I also found her prices to be very reasonable.Sent on 03/29/2011

I couldn't rave enough about this place!!! Our cake was beautiful and they bent over backwards to help us, even though we were a relatively small order. Thank you!Sent on 12/03/2009

My fiancee and I tried four different fantastic bakeries in the Pasadena area, and narrowed it down to two. Two months before our wedding, I left on a trip to New Zealand and left my fiancee on wedding duty. He was supposed to decide on a bakery and cake design. I call him a week into my trip and find out to my dismay that he's researching yet another cake option --- Mendy, at Cakes by the Pound. At this point, we're six weeks from the wedding and I'm worried that there will be no wedding cake!Sent on 03/02/2010
But the fiancee was right -- Mendy is a wonderful splurge! Her cakes taste absolutely delicious, and are better than the other bakeries we taste-tested (which were already awesome, so it tells you how yummy Mendy's cakes are). There are more choices for cakes flavors and fillings and they're just that much more delicious. And she's an amazing artist. She can make cake designs that you think are impossible. She did a great job with my fiancee's admittedly unique vision.
Absolute pleasure to work with!
OMG!!! What an amazing cake...All of my friends loved it!
Yum. I could sum this endorsement with that one word. But why stop there when I can also tell you how delightful Mindy is to work with, how creative her designs can be, and how fabulous she - her upbeat demeanor is contagious: you know she loves what she does, and you know that she loves just as much the joy it brings you, the bride and groom, that your wedding cake be ubber delicious and fantastic!! Hooray for Cakes by the "Pound"!!
