    Amazing Gluten Free Cake!

    From the time we got engaged, we knew we'd be calling Happy Tart to discuss our wedding cake. We were able to mix and match flavors from our tasting (using cupcakes), and Emma did a small cake for us and we ordered an assortment of cupcakes as well. The result was that everyone got cake they absolutely loved. Our caterer packaged the leftover cupcakes in takeout containers, so people were able to grab them as they left also! The cake was delicious (we did lemon cake, raspberry filling, and lemon buttercream), and absolutely gorgeous. The cupcakes were to die for (salted caramel, banana nutella, almond raspberry, and triple lemon), and everyone is still talking about them! We've been Happy Tart customers for a long time, and we'll be customers for life!

    Happy Tart made us the most delicious wedding cakes!

    We used to spend every Saturday morning at Happy Tart when their Del Rey location was still open, so when we got engaged we knew that’s where we’d get our wedding cake. Emma, the owner, sat with us for our initial tasting, and she answered our many questions about flavor combinations and cake styles that would fit within our budget. On our wedding day, I happened to arrive at the venue with my bridesmaids while Emma was setting up the cake. She gave me a big hug and asked what I thought, and I was blown away by how perfectly she captured our vision for the cake design. She also said the topper wasn’t on yet because she didn’t want to get frosting on the bottom of it (which is great because it’s a keepsake music box). As if her care and attention weren’t enough, the kitchen and display cakes she made were delicious and we got rave reviews from our guests. We’re so glad we saved the top layer for our anniversary! If you want a delicious cake and warm, caring service, we highly recommend Happy Tart.

    Beautiful and Tasty Cake

    Emma did a wonderful job with our wedding cake! We had a tasty tiered cake with lemon and chocolate flavors with a beautiful slate-blue ombre frosting job. Our guests were shocked to hear the cake was gluten-free, and since choosing Happy Tart for my wedding cake over a year ago, I've become a dedicated Happy Tart aficionado. Their eclairs are amazing, just FYI. Everything went great with the cake and design and I couldn't be happier!
