Delicious wedding cake

Freedom was amazing to work with for our wedding! Everything in our tasting plate was amazing and communication from their team was top notch. We're looking forward to eating our cake on our first anniversary!

What a great cake!

Freedom Bakery made us the perfect wedding cake. Our wedding was themed for the California Coast and we wanted the cake to both be a delicious wedding cake and also mimic a lighthouse. The team at freedom bakery took our idea, helped us refine it, and built the perfect cake at our budget. The tasting plate was a great way for us to select the right flavor. It was very difficult to pick among the multiple excellent flavors, but we ultimately selected Boston Cream and it was just perfect!

Gorgeous and scrumptious!! 10/10

We hired Freedom Bakery to make out wedding cake and couldn't be happier with the service we received!! Despite the fact that we were planning our wedding from out of state, communication with Tania and her team was super easy. We sent photos of the look we wanted to achieve, and they did an outstanding job capturing what we were after! We ordered the three-tier (10" + 8" + 6") Raspberry Preserve & Italian Lemon Mousse cake with buttercream frosting and it was DIVINE! We received so many compliments on the cake! Since we were working on a limited budget, we also appreciated that we could pick up the cake ourselves for a discounted price. Highly recommend!!
