Dawn at Decadence is a master baker! Woweee! It was a really great experience working with her and super easy! We went in for a tasting and my goodness, it was so hard to pick, everything was soooo great! Our cake and desserts not only looked beautiful but they tasted wonderful too. I really loved that she made a separate “midnight snack” box for us to take home since we were too busy to enjoy the desserts at the wedding. We got a two tier cake, one of her signature Hummingbird cake which was a pineapple coconut cake with fresh strawberry and cream filling and the other tier was a lavender cake with lemon. Sooooo yum! Also, the Cheesecake Carrot Cake – holy canolli! Honestly, for the quality of ingredients and delicious-ness, Decadence is super affordable and worth every penny. Believe me, you’re doing yourself a favor choosing Decadence!Sent on 08/17/2019

I began the process of planning a destination wedding while living in Boston for my daughter who resides in Chicago.Sent on 07/03/2019
I had only briefly visited the Santa Barbara area with no real knowledge of potential wedding resources. I contacted Dawn after reading excellent reviews and looking at pictures of her desserts on the Internet. I was impressed when speaking to Dawn that she was most interested in knowing the bride and grooms exact likes and dislikes of flavors for their wedding cake and dessert selection. Our family was very fortunate to visit Dawn for a tasting of mini desserts and cake flavors before the wedding and she did not disappoint. She is truly a talented baker that prepares not only elegant, meticulous baked goods but that taste delicious as well. We also were thrilled with a selection of paired wine tasting cookies served at the cocktail hour which was a unique surprise for our guests. Dawn not only baked the desserts and wedding cake but was on site the night of the wedding to ensure the desserts were beautifully displayed. It was thrilling to watch the video of the bride cutting the wedding cake and spontaneously commenting that it was so delicious. We could not have asked for more. I can highly recommend Dawn as a talented, kind, and dedicated baker.

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.Sent on 10/30/2018
