Dawn is absolutely Amazing!
We had a wonderful experience with Dawn regarding our wedding cake. From our tasting to final delivery, she was always very responsive, professional, and just a joy to work with. Her pricing is very competitive, especially in the Santa Ynez Valley area. I highly recommend Decadence Cakes for couples looking for a beautiful, and most important, a delicious wedding cake.

My first substantive communication with Dawn from Decadence wasn't about the cake that my wife and I wanted to order for our wedding; instead, Dawn reached out to us the day before our scheduled tasting to make sure that we were aware of the fires in the area and that we'd have a safe route to drive there. Already, without meeting Dawn or tasting her cakes, I knew that she was something special! And she proved herself to be just that when we finally did meet her a taste her cakes.
First of all, the tasting is mind blowing. Above and beyond anything else we tried. It's obviously why we ultimately chose Dawn to do our wedding, but I can't say enough about the tasting, and the work that she clearly put towards it. I think we had about a dozen flavors to try -- wow!
When it came time to make the actual cakes for our wedding, Dawn delivered. The cake was beautiful, and the taste even better. Guests raved. Simply put, we couldn't have been more pleased with Dawn, her delicious cakes and the quality of customer service. Five stars all around!

I booked Dawn after reading these reviews, her FB, Yelp, AND instagram... Yep, I'm one of those people. I have absolutely NO REGRETS in booking her. The cake tasting was filled with so many more combinations than I imagined. We finalized the cake design in about a week and BAM! 8 months later- there was our cake- As gorgeous and and delicious as ever! We got so many compliments from our guests and from the employees at our wedding venue. To quote the manager "This cake is so delicious, moist, and not overly sweet! Who makes this cake?? I need to tell all of our future couples to go there!"... Seriously, she is that amazing!
Absolutely fabulous cakes, not just beautiful but delicious and made with quality ingredients. You can really taste the difference.
Magnificent cakes, delicious, gorgeous! Dawn is a sweetheart, nothing short of amazing. Highly recommended!
Working with Decadence is pure joy! The artistry that goes into the cakes is amazing - and delicious!
