Magical Wedding Cake

Lara truly made our vision come to life. Our wedding cake was more than just a dessert; it was a love-filled masterpiece that added a special touch to our big day. The beautiful design, with delicate and lifelike flowers, was like a work of art that everyone admired. The subtle detailing, the florals, we loved every bit of it. People could not stop taking pictures of it!

And the taste? Pure bliss! The layers were soft and flavorful and pleased every palate. The buttercream frosting was just right – not too sweet, letting the flavors shine. The guava compote added a refreshing twist that made each bite a delight. Write it down everyone - the flavor is Romeo+Juliet. Heck all of the flavors Lara offers are so unique, it was so worth it to try every one of them in the tasting box.

I can't wait to order from Lara again in the future!

Absolutely Stunning Cakes & Cupcakes

Booking LILA Cake Shop to make our wedding cake was easily one of the best decisions we made in the entire planning process. Lara is an exceptionally talented artist--her buttercream flowers (both abstract and realistic) will absolutely blow you away. She is making some of the most beautiful fine art cakes and cupcakes in the world. (Trust me - my favorite pastime for about 12 months was looking at pictures of buttercream florals.)

Lara is also SO sweet and fun to work with. Seeing and trying our tasting box (with my mom on Mothers' Day!) was actually one of the highlights of the whole year for us. She let me have a ton of input and brought my vision to life in a way that was more stunning than I ever could have imagined. And not to mention her CUPCAKES! And to top it all off, everything tasted INCREDIBLE. Dozens of people came up to me at the wedding to comment on how insanely gorgeous the cake and cupcakes were. My guests were floored, as was I, and I had seen the sketch!! The pictures speak for themselves. LILA Cake Shop is the absolute best in California, if not the country. Book Lara immediately before she gets booked on your date!!!!
