Delicious cakes! Smart tasting.
I'm so glad I found Martha on Wedding Wire. Due to covid, our regular destination wedding was canceled so I had to find a local cake vendor for our zoom wedding. This review is just for the tasting and I will post an update after the wedding, but I had to write this review because the tasting was delicious and smart at the same time. Because of covid, the tasting was more of a take home tasting. Martha prepared the various cake samples, fillings, and icings in some to-go boxes like the picture I attached. I've done other cake tastings and this one was the smartest method of cake tasting because we received a variety of cakes, icings, and fillings separately so that we were able to taste each combination and make a more knowledgeable decision. With other vendors, I had to prechoose the cake/filing combinations, but I'm not an expert on cake or filling so I was just shooting in the dark and hoping that Bavarian something was good (its not my taste). Other vendors also didn't let me tast icing variations, but Martha did! I get a headache with certain icings like with store bought cakes, but Martha makes this natural icing that is perfect. My fiance usually hates icing, but he loved the natural icing. By the way, the cake samples themselves were soo fluffy and delicious! It was difficult to just pick one combination so we increased our order from a one layer to a two layer cake with two different cake and filling cominations. Martha is a true professional and I would recommend her to anyone.
Update: I received my cake a few days ago and everything was perfect. The cake was here on time. It looked beautiful, and was incredibly tasty. I definitely recommend Artistic Cakes!.Sent on 10/17/2020
ARTISTIC CAKES's reply:Thank you my dear Darling for your great "Tasting" Experience Review, in this pandemic times because I can not expend time with the client due to the small indoor space I have I tray to do the best I can and with a little bit of common sense and thinking in my client like I was the person doing a tasting I prepared the tasting for you.

My husband and I tried out several vendors before choosing Martha to design and make our beautiful wedding cake on 10.26.19. While other vendors were flakey and unreliable when it came to responding to our messages or setting up tastings, Martha was always incredibly responsive, friendly, helpful and very professional. We previously tried a well-known cake vendor for a tasting - Cake Studio of LA - and we were very disappointed with the tasting experience - the samples of cake were so tiny and we felt like we were rushed and not a priority. But with Martha, we were invited to her lovely home for the tasting, and she had an incredible amount of delicious pieces of cake, filling and frosting for us to try. She designed a gorgeous cake for us and even made two red velvet cupcakes for us to give to our daughters at the wedding. We highly recommend Martha!Sent on 11/30/2019
ARTISTIC CAKES's reply:Thanks so much, Sara for this great review, I had a great pleasure to have you in my Home Studio and make the cake you love. I wish you all the best, Martha

THE BEST CAKE AND CAKE BAKER EVER! look no further for amazing tasting and amazing service.
Martha is an absolute godsend! I could not have asked for a more beautiful cake and dessert table. The minute I saw the cake and dessert table I was blown away with how gorgeous everything looked. From my very first meeting with Martha she put my mind to ease and completely worked with my vision. Not only were her cakes beautiful but they are more importantly (in my opinion) so DELICIOUS! We choose the Almond Cake with Raspberry filling and Vanilla and Pina Colada filling. All of our guests kept complimenting on how moist and yummy the cake and desserts were. I will forever be grateful to Martha for her love and exceptional attention to detail. Look no further and hire Artistic Cakes!Sent on 09/25/2019

Martha is Amazing!
Martha truly has an eye and touch for creating amazing cakes! Initially, all ideas I came in with for our wedding cake were proven to be doable and Martha did not hesitate to incorporate her ideas and educate us on what was most cost efficient which was of true help! You can tell Martha absolutely loves what she does and is in the business to see her work flourish. She understands how much is already being spent on special events and provides really great pricing and QUALITY work. It was amazing to see how beautiful her previous creations were and continued to astonish us with our unique wedding cake creation. Another great plus is that you are solely dealing with Martha from start to finish and meet at her home. She is really good about keeping in touch and answering any questions you may have at any given time. Her immediate responses were greatly appreciated as we all know planning a big event leaves for little time to wait. I will definitely continue to refer to Martha for our special events and absolutely commend her amazing work and professionalism!Sent on 06/03/2019
ARTISTIC CAKES's reply:Thank you, my dear Jessica, for this great review, I appreciate very much all the nice thing you said about me, you were such a sweet couple that I will never forget both of you. I wish you all the best!!

Martha is the BEST!
Artistic Cakes was one of the easiest and best decisions we made for my daughter's wedding in May 2019. I initially found Martha and her outstanding cake business on Yelp. All of the reviews could not be more spot on. She is incredibly responsive, able to create any vision you have in mind and delivers it all in five-star fashion. Martha had the bride, groom, and both mothers in for a wonderful tasting experience. It was organized, gave us a fabulous array of choices and delicious. She made great recommendations and offered us cost saving options. She was willing to work with the fresh flower idea that my daughter had in mind and made getting everything together so easy. Martha also loaned us a beautiful cake stand on the wedding day that made the presentation spectacular. She personally delivered and set up the cake and people could not stop talking about how beautiful and delicious it was. I will certainly use her again and highly recommend Artistic Cakes for any baking needs!Sent on 07/09/2019
ARTISTIC CAKES's reply:My dear Margrit thank you very much for taking the time to write this outstanding review!! I am very happy to know that everybody was happy with my work but especially your daughter and you. I wish you all the best, Martha.

So happy that we chose Artistic Cakes for our Wedding Cake!
We decided to use Artistic Cakes for our Wedding, after trying the delicious cake at our cousin's wedding, and I am so glad we did! Martha was the absolute sweetest to work with and made the process so simple. The quality of her work truly stands out. She made us a beautiful show stopper cake that was affordable and delicious, and I am so grateful. My mouth waters just thinking about it! Our guests also loved the cake, so much that there were no leftovers. I highly recommend Artistic Cakes, and cannot wait until I can order from Martha again!Sent on 07/03/2019
ARTISTIC CAKES's reply:Hi Violeta!! Thanks so much for remember me and write such a lovely review, I really enjoyed working with you and all your cousins in their weddings, what a great family!! I wish you all the best and happiness forever. Martha

I would give Artistic Cakes 10 stars if I could. Mrs. Martha is exceptional in her level of attentiveness, passion and quality of service. From the moment we contacted her she made us feel we were in good hands and we were! She was collaborative, welcoming all ideas yet recommending what she thought best, which helped in the process. Between my vision and her expertise, she created our dream cake going over and beyond what we expected. The day of the wedding she came to the venue, set up the cake and helped decorate the table to make sure everything was perfect. Most importantly, the quality of the cake was outstanding! Our guests loved the red velvet with cream cheese filling in one tier and the white cake with strawberry filling in the other. The cream used for the frosting is delicious as well! Finally, the chocolate cupcakes were to die for with yummy chocolate chips in them. The added touch was that she decorated them with the “love” toppers and rose gold holders, which wasn’t expected yet greatly appreciated. It’s very clear Mrs. Martha loves what she does and that love translates into beautiful cakes, helping couples make their dreams come true!!!Sent on 10/13/2018
Jacqueline · Married on 05/11/2018
I don't know where do begin or how to describe the best tasting cake ever! Not to mention the design for my wedding cake. Martha is truly the best cake decorator around. The flavors are out of this world. My guest can not stop talking about the vanilla with mango, chocolate with cajeta, and red velvet with cheesecake filling. I had a vision of how I wanted my cake designed and it was as if Martha could read my mind. She knew exactly what I wanted. My cake was out of this world amazing. I will be ordering from her again. Thank you MarthaSent on 05/23/2018
ARTISTIC CAKES's reply:Thank you, my dear Jackie, for your great review, I had a great pleasure working with your husband and you and I really enjoyed to work on your cake project, everything looked stunning at your reception area and your cake was the centerpiece of the venue.

First I want to say Thank you to Martha for our amazing wedding cake! From start to finish when we were planning on shopping around for our wedding cake I called Artistic Cakes and Martha answered my call and was so patient and knowledgeable answering all my questions I had. She made this entire process so easy! We scheduled our tasting and everything was amazing! it was hard to choose since everything was so tasty! We got so many compliments from our family and friends about our wedding cake :)

Cynthia · Married on 03/10/2018
Our experience with Martha from Artistic Cakes was beyond excellent. From the moment we first went to cake taste we could tell Martha was a professional and takes pride in what she does. She helped us choose the cake that best suited our budget and preference. Her cakes are very rich in flavor and also look SO beautiful. Our guests raved about how good the cake tasted. Her customer service is top notch. She dealt with us through the whole design and flavoring of the cake and was professional, so friendly, and patient the whole time. We did not feel rushed or pressured at any point. She also delivers the cake herself for a small fee. So this ensures that the cake will look exactly how you envision it. We highly recommend Martha! If you want a great tasting cake that also looks great without breaking your head or your wallet, go see Martha. We personally will continue to purchase cakes from her for any future events because they are that DELICIOUS!Sent on 04/18/2018
ARTISTIC CAKES's reply:Thank you so much my dear Chyntia for this great review, I really enjoyed very much working with Richard and you and had the possibility to meet a great couple.
Rachel · Married on 03/03/2018
I've been to plenty of weddings and always look forward in partaking the wedding cake but no cake has ever gave me that wow factor- that long lasting desire of wanting more. But MY wedding cake was exactly that- I wanted more. My sweet tooth wanted more so I ate our top tier that was supposed to be saved as a tradition for our one year anniversary but that quickly was not the case. It was absolutely DELICIOUS. I might have a little regret not saving it cause I wish I had some at this moment. The wedding cake was a HUGE HIT, the guests loved it and I've already recommended Martha because that's how light, moist, and naturally flavorful it was as well as the presentation and price is reasonable. Martha is the sweetest and does not disappoint, just like her cakes! I am a happy girl and best. decision. EVER. I'm excited cause now I have a go to cake lady for future events. I'm so happy and lucky I found Martha and you will be too! She will bless your wedding cake, I hope she makes cakes forever!

Jason · Married on 12/09/2017
Martha's cakes are gorgeous and utterly delicous. She is local, flexible, super easy to work with and very kind and accommodating. Prior to finding her, we had conducted a tasting at a high-end cake studio in the valley. One that specializes in over-the-top elegant looking fondant cakes. The cake at the other studio was not very good and Martha's cakes were much more aesthetically pleasing and super tasty - a huge hit with our guests. Her rates are also low and very fair. We basically let Martha know the style of cake we wanted (art deco), had a tasting of too many delicous flavors to choose from, and put the rest of it in her hands. The results were amazing. Thanks Martha!
(Note: In addition to the tower cake pictured, we also had a couple of sheet cakes included to feed all of our guests. Multiple flavors was yet another bonus.)Sent on 01/03/2018

Robyn · Married on 10/20/2017
Martha at Artistic Cakes gave me a pinterest perfect cake. She was so easy to work with and was very helpful with the entire process, not to mention very reasonably priced. I received (and am still receiving) so many compliments on how beautiful my cake was and more importantly, how delicious it was. Artistic Cake's serving sizes are generous and we still ordered slightly more than we needed - I was shocked at how little cake was left. Our guests were going back for 2nds and some for 3rds! I hope every wedding I go to uses to Artistic Cakes so we can have another taste. Thank you so much, Martha!!Sent on 11/08/2017

If you want to have the most beautiful and delicious weeding cake you have ever had, then look no further. Martha is an amazing professional that made the process of selecting flavors, and design was so easy and enjoyable. Martha is kind, welcoming, and talented. It was difficult deciding what flavors to choose because they were all fantastic, fortunately Martha's experience and advice made it easier for us to select our favorites. Our final selection consisted of the following flavor combinations: Amaretto with Raspberry Mousse, Banana and Pina Colada, Chocolate with Strawberry Mousse, and Banana and Caramel. It has been nearly a year since our wedding, and our family and friends continue to compliment us on how amazing our wedding cake was. I also recommended Martha to a co-worker for her wedding cake and she also loved her cake as much as we did. The only reason we took so long to write this review was because we wanted to include pictures of our cake which we just retrieved from our photographer. Martha, a heartfelt thanks for the masterpiece you created for us. I hope you will continue to make all our future special occasion, and “just because” cakes for us.

i planned everything long distance, but my parents interacted with martha- Martha was incredibly professional and flexible, and made my vision come to life better than i expected. She also provided other mini desserts in addition to cake which were beautifully presented, tasted amazing, and very budget conscious (although they looked extravagant).

Brittany · Married on 06/17/2017
My husband and I recently got married last month. Martha was recommended to us by my husbands brother who's wedding cake she did for them as well. It was the best decision we ever made. We had so many different choices to choose from and believe me it was hard a decision because everything was so delicious. We had a masquerade wedding so I was able to give her my ideas of what we wanted when it came to the design of the cake. But really let her have fun with it. The cake came out amazing, the added mask to the cake gave the cake a pop. And the taste was fa nominal. I recommend Ms. Martha to those having upcoming weddings and or any event. Thank you Martha for your work in our cake. :)Sent on 07/07/2017

Wow, It was such a pleasure working with Martha. She truly did an amazing job! From the moment my husband and I met with her we knew we were in good hands. She was very professional and very easy to work with. Her tastings were fabulous! We had a hard time choosing the flavors so had to choose more than one.Our cake had red velvet, chocolate/caheta, strawberry and pina. We are so happy with her presentation, outta all the vendors we dealt with on that hectic day, she was the best one yet! I can honestly say that our cake turned out better than what we expected.
