Meet the Business Owner: Amber Vander Vliet.
When I was a little girl, "grown-ups" always asked, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" I faithfully answered, "a baker." I was very determined and started my "professional" journey at the age of fifteen. I started my day at 4:00 am, working as a pastry chef intern at a five star hotel before attending school. I continued on working for established, respected bakeries and was educated in the art of baking. After college I was lured by art & design and worked for 7 years as a design studio manager. I also worked alongside my husband, facilitating corporate events, for nearly 8 years. 15 years later I am doing what I proclaimed to do as a child...I am a baker, never losing my passion. Enjoy Cupcakes is located in Santa Ynez Valley, California where I am continually inspired by local produce, flavors, wines and respect for food. I take advantage of the ingredients that grow in my yard and what the local farmers are offering for sale.

We Tried their Mini Cupcakes for Over 3 Years to Chose our Wedding Cupcakes! (It was Amazing!)

We had the absolute best time ordering our wedding cupcakes from enjoy cupcakes.

Each mini cupcake was lovely like a work of art and tasted absolutely amazing!

And the total price was cheaper than a traditional wedding cake.

The flavors we chose for wedding cupcakes were: Lemon Black Currant Chardonnay, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Brown Butter Snickerdoodle &Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

Enjoy Cupcakes makes 6 different flavors of cupcakes each week (which range from good to incredibly fantastic).

Since we live locally, it became me and my husband's ritual to pick up a cupcake flight whenever possible. We would rank the cupcakes based on our personal preference.

When our wedding was postponed twice due to Covid, one year became three so we had to have a cupcake battle royal in order to choose the the absolute best four flavors to serve at our wedding.

Amber was incredibly kind and supportive during each of the postponement.

Honestly, both me and my husband were a bit sad that our cupcake ritual was ending so we might have to carry on the tradition as newlyweds.

I 1000% endorse Enjoy Cupcakes.*

*Though we didn't serve them at our wedding I can also speak from past experience that the cookie sandwiches, cookie dough balls, and cheesecake provided by Enjoy Cupcakes are also excellent.

Delicious dessert and reliable vendor.

We engaged Amber to create a small wedding cake and 3 flavors of mini cupcakes for our wedding in Santa Barbara. The cake was beautiful and exactly as we pictured. The mini cupcakes were a complete hit! I’ve had several guests ask about the bakery.

Enjoy Cupcakes has become our go-to vendor for all special occasion desserts. Highly recommended!

The BEST Wedding Cake!

We cannot express how amazing Enjoy is to work with!! We had a relatively small wedding (72 people) and were looking for a cake that was beautiful, unique, and delicious and found all three in our experience with Enjoy! We ended up with a 3-tier cake, very simple gold leaf design, and we HAD to incorporate the chocolate blackberry syrah flavor since we were in wine country! However for our other layers we selected a vanilla bean creme brulee flavor... And our guests are STILL talking about our wedding cake even five months later! To make sure we had enough, we opted to add an additional 9 inch single tier and with the way the cake was gobbled up, we're certainly glad we did! We only wish we lived in the area so we could have their cake all the time! The cupcakes and cookies are divine as well!
