Gina and the Bean - exceeds all expectations! :)
I cannot say enough positive things about Gina and the Bean.Sent on 04/08/2019
First - the deliciousness of the cake. Wow, we were blown away. We ended up going with vanilla/carmel and chocolate/chocolate - they were both outstanding. The quality of the ingredients Gina uses is clearly top notch. The cakes are so moist and flavorful - not overly sweet like a lot of cake you might find at a different bakery. Gina is such a talented baker.
Second - Gina is SO sweet and easy to work with. She went out of her way on so many levels to provide friendly, professional service at our convenience. Planning a wedding is stressful enough, so working with a vendor as easygoing and on top of it as Gina makes the day-of so easy!
Third - super reasonably priced. We did a fair amount of shopping around for cakes until we found Gina. Her cakes were the best in quality and value. While other places were not flexible with budget, Gina worked with us to fit our budgetary parameters. The cake was beautiful, tasty, and within our budget.
I would highly recommend Gina and the Bean to anyone who needs a cake at their next party! You will certainly be pleased! :)

Gina is wonderful.
Gina made the groom's cake for my rehearsal dinner and the wedding cake for my reception, both were phenomenal. Her ideas for designs and flavors are perfect, I still receive compliments from my wedding guests on both cakes. She was lovely to work with because she listened to my ideas while suggesting some of her own, which were always on point. She clearly has a lot of experience with her art. I also asked her to make my wedding favor cookies, which she designed as mini anchors and fit perfectly with my nautical-themed wedding. If I have any special events in the future, she's my go-to for desserts. Thank you, Gina!Sent on 09/03/2019

Parties and gifts
I have ordered several items from Gina and the Bean. The quality of her cakes and treats are above and beyond expectations. When I asked for a special item not on her menu she always accommodates. I have told several people about her and they have always been very happy with what they have ordered. I highly recommend her cakes, Lollicakes and cookies — her Yule Log is amazing!Sent on 04/06/2019
Gina and the Bean's reply:Thank you so much, Bettina! It is such a pleasure to serve you and be a part of life's happy occasions! Gina

Perfection is an Understatment
Gina and the Bean....where do I begin! I am a local event planner and florist and met Gina about 6 months ago through one of my preferred caterers. She swept me off my feet at the tasting! Her desserts are wonderful in every single way. She has since done multiple birthday cakes, family gatherings, wedding cakes, dessert bars, and even the cutest tea party for my little princess and her friends! Every time I have booked her for something different thinking she has it no problem, she surprises me with an even bigger and better dessert and display then I imagined! She now handles ALL of my couples and clients desserts. Her prices are spot on, desserts are beyond fab, and to top it off she is the sweetest!!!Sent on 04/14/2019
Gina and the Bean's reply:Desiree, I am blushing and just so happy that you have been pleased with what I have done so far! Thank you for the opportunity to work with you and represent your team. It really is an honor.

The BEST cake made by the BEST!
I can go on all day ranting and raving about Gina and her cakes. I live in the Southbay area of Los Angeles and I have not been able to find a good baker, until I met Gina. I had the opportunity to taste 3 of Gina’s cakes at a work function and my entire office devoured the 3 huge cakes (chocolate, vanilla with sea salt caramel, and cheesecake) within 20 minutes. People have been obsessing about the cakes since that day. So what makes Gina’s cakes special and different from others? The quality of her ingredients is superior to others and you can taste it! She doesn’t use the cheap ingredients and the best part for me is, her cakes aren’t overly sweet! They’re perfectly soft and moist without being too dense. They’re perfectly sweet without being too sweet. I just recently ordered a tiramisu cake for my parents and Gina was able to make it despite the shorter notice. She was so responsive to all my questions. The tiramisu cake did not last past the weekend:) I can very confidently recommend Gina to anyone who is looking for the best cake, desserts made of the finest ingredients!Sent on 04/08/2019
