Beautiful, one of a kind, delicious Wedding cake!
I originally found Lara & LILA cakeshop scrolling instagram a few weeks before my COVID mini wedding and decided to reach out on a whim - and I'm so glad I did. We got a tasting box where I chose the flowers and flavors I was most interested in (churro, sticky toffee, vanilla bean) and we were blown away! Lara worked with me to create a beautiful, one of a kind cake and cupcake set to match our wedding theme, it served as the highlight of our reception, our guests were so impressed by the beauty and flavor of the cakes! We ended up choosing the churro, sticky toffee, and chocolate caramel flavors, and we were able to have a gluten free cupcake to accommodate my BIL. Throughout the process, Lara was so nice and a great communicator, she quickly responded to any and all of my questions and made the process easy. She took care to ensure that my cake made it to my house as "safe" as possible as my wedding planner picked it up and brought it to Redlands. I highly recommend Lara & LILA cakeshop - her cake are delicious and beautiful. My husband and I are looking forward to the next time we have an occasion to celebrate because we will be ordering again!Sent on 10/30/2020

Better than we could have ever imagined
I can't even put into words how unbelievable our cake + cupcakes from LILA were. Lara captured my vision exactly and the finished cake was stunning. Usually the really beautiful cakes don't taste as good as they look, but not this time. We got the pumpkin with salted caramel frosting and it was outstanding. Our guests couldn't stop raving about it!! I can't recommend LILA enough if you want a gorgeous, unique + delicious cake! Thank you LaraSent on 10/21/2020
