    Let Them Eat Delicious Cake!

    Ana and Colleen were so wonderful to work with. We met Ana the day of our tasting. She was very sweet and explained the process to us. It’s All About The Cake hosts the tasting at their cafe in Dana Point right by the harbor which is a beautiful location. They offer you champagne and bring the cake samples out to you so it is a very indulgent and fun experience! Most importantly, the cake is absolutely DELICIOUS! My Groom and I chose three flavors, one for each layer - vanilla cake with vanilla pastry cream and lemon curd filling, strawberry cake with strawberry pastry cream filling, and chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling. Leading up to the wedding, I changed my mind several times on what type of design I wanted for the cake. No matter how many times I changed it, Colleen and Ana were very patient with me and accommodating. They thought of everything, including asking me how large my cake topper was, so they could make sure it would fit. The day of my wedding, they delivered the cake on time and it was exactly what I asked for. All of my guests were raving about how delicious the cake was. It was so good, I had my venue pack up the leftovers so we could take it home! I would highly recommend It’s All About The Cake.

    Fantastic!

    It's All About the Cake is Talega Golf Club's partner when it comes to wedding cakes, so after booking with Talega for our wedding this year, we worked with this vendor as well. The cake tasting was a great experience with Colleen, and my (now) husband and I were excited to have awesome cake on our wedding day. We selected vanilla cake with chocolate ganache and Oreo mousse for two of the layers, and the 3rd layer was strawberry shortcake. Our guests raved about the delicious cake, especially the chocolate ganache and Oreo mousse, and the decorations were exactly like the photo sample that I provided. Even though we used artificial flowers and garlands, the end result was better than I would've expected. Thank you team, for the great service and fantastic quality of the cake. We're excited to order our complimentary one-year anniversary cake next year!
