About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

Lilac Patisserie is a dedicated gluten-free bakery located in Santa Barbara, California. We believe that designing a wedding cake should be a unique and memorable experience for each couple. Lilac Pâtisserie offers a selection of luxurious and decadent cakes — 12 signature flavors — that are as beautiful as they are delicious. We use only the finest ingredients in our cakes, including intoxicating Madagascar vanilla, rich Belgian chocolate, and the freshest produce.

Gluten Free Wedding Cakes

Chef Gillian Muralles is focused on luxurious gluten-free baking. Along with co-owner — and husband — Chef Alam Muralles, every recipe the duo creates meets their high standards, and passes the three criteria for the Lilac Pâtisserie work-of-art test: taste, texture and appearance. Everything made at Lilac Pâtisserie is gluten free, but if we didn’t mention it, you might never know.

    Amazing Surprise!

    Look no further than Lilac Patisserie for both the best wedding cake and most personable communication with a business in the Santa Barbara area! Rachel was extremely flexible, understanding, and all-around amazing in making our wedding cake perfect - even helped with my random request of including our two dogs on it! All of our guests really loved our cake, and we are extremely grateful that Lilac was who made it happen. Thank you, Lilac!

    Better Than Imagined

    We had the most incredible experience with Gillian, the owner and Madison, the cake designer. My husband, not gluten free, had high standards when it came to our wedding cake. After our first tasting, which we were able to take to go due to covid, he said hands down this was the best cake he had ever had. The hardest part for us was picking a flavor so we ended up with two, Chocolate Berry Moose and Lemon Raspberry. Our cake truly a showstopper. The guests loved ever bite and were shocked to learn that it was gluten free! Lilac Patisserie really does live up to its claim that you would never know it was gluten free!

    Best cake and kindest service!

    Thank you so much to Madison and the team at Lilac! Our wedding cake was delicious and absolutely beautiful. My husband and I didn’t have a clear vision of what we wanted out cake to look like at first, but we told Madison a little bit about ourselves and how we met and she drew the most unique and awesome design…then brought it to life in cake form! Wonderful experience, can’t thank you guys enough :)
