    Delicious and Easy

    We used Pennington for our wedding cake and it was absolutely amazing! They were so easy to work with and we received so many compliments on the cake. We went in for 1 easy meeting with them where we described what we wanted for our cake, we tasted and picked our flavors and that was it! They coordinated the rest with our venue and we couldn't have been happier with how it turned out visually and the cake was DELICIOUS! Thank You so much Stephen, Sara, and Wendi!

    Best decision for cakes!!!!

    Pennington’s was a fantastic choice for my husband and I for our wedding! They were very friendly and responsive to all of our questions in person and through email making working with them a breeze. Pennington’s worked with my gluten allergy at a very affordable rate and incredibly tasty cakes (and cupcakes) with fresh berries!!!! We shopped around a lot for cakes through San Antonio, New Braunfels, and San Marcos area. They were the best by far in both price and quality!!!! Best choice to top off an absolutely perfect day!!

    My cakes were beautiful!

    Pennington’s did two cakes for my wedding and they both turned out awesome. Anything you can imagine or honestly pull off Pinterest Stephen and his team can pull it off. We did a simple wedding and Star Wars groom’s cake. First off they looked amazing but then they tasted even better! I’m looking forward to eating the top tier of my wedding cake next year already. Great job Pennington’s!

    So yummy and gorgeous!

    I was so happy to book Pennington because they did my parents wedding cake 37 years ago! We did a deconstructed cake with copper drip and copper paint and it was absolutely gorgeous. I had several people say that it looked like something out of a magazine! We had half white cake with raspberry filling and the other half was white cake with pineapple filling and it was delicious. I definitely recommend Pennington's.

    Beautiful and Delicious Wedding Cake!

    Pennington’s Cakes was outstanding and profesional to work with in creating the exact Wedding Cake my daughter and son-in-law wanted for their Big Day in September of 2019. The cake was beautiful, moist, fresh, and so delicious! They were right on time for set-up and discreet with all the other happenings taking place at the same time. I would Most definitely and highly recommend them to anyone considering a professional cake for a Wedding, Anniversary, Birthday, Retirement, Holiday, or event party. Pennington’s Cakes are a great value for the price and oh so delicious!

    Wonderful Service! Amazing taste!

    Stephen was great from the beginning to end! Scheduling the tasting was simple and convenient and they even prepared a sampling for my children. Stephen was flexible with changes throughout the entire process and did everything with a smile. The day of delivery went smoothly and even though they forgot the stand (I didn’t even notice) everything was beautiful and perfect! And the taste? Oh wow!!!! We chose the pineapple and the chocolate ganache and both were to die for! So delicious and fresh! Thanks again Penington’s! I couldn’t have asked for anything better!

    Weddingcake

    We had a fabulous experience with Pennington’s! We ordered 6 cakes total and everyone LOVED them. In fact, we had none leftover! They captured just what we wanted as far as the design and overall look of the cakes. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for wedding cakes out there!

    BEST tasting cakes EVER & gorgeously designed!!

    I'm absolutely blown away by the taste and design of their cakes! They couldn't have been better to work with - Stephen and team are AMAZING! We told them exactly what we wanted for both cakes, and they blew us away! We found them, but our caterer confirmed we made the right choice (kept insisting she's tasted all & they're the best). Then, other vendors & ALL the guests were asking where we got our cakes! We are thrilled to this day to have used them - best wedding cakes ever! Thank you so much!

    Our cakes were fantastic! They were as we envisioned and discussed. Stephen was wonderful to work with and was super flexible with our changes and responsive to questions. There was only one small issue that I noticed and that is that the fondant was buckling on the back of one of our cakes. I am not sure what was happening, but luckily they were able to put that to the back, therefore, it wasn't an issue. Perhaps it was a bit too humid for the cakes (it was quite humid even with the cakes inside). Overall, we had a fantastic experience.

    The cakes were also all delicious. The tiered cake was strawberry with vanilla buttercream, one side cake was chocolate with chocolate ganache and chocolate buttercream, and the third was white cake with raspberry filling and vanilla buttercream. The chocolate was by far the favorite and disappeared quickly. All three were moist, perfectly baked, and delicious.

    I highly recommend Pennington's Cakes and will be back for future events!

    I could speak for days about my experience with Pennington's. Just wonderful! You have come to the right place. I booked them for my wedding this past June and worked directly with Stephen. He was amazing! There was one day I stopped by unannounced and he wasn't in, but one of his employees helped me with no issues at all.

    Like most bride-to-be's, I tried several different cake places, but this was the most affordable option plus amazing quality cakes and excellent service. I didn't think you could tell the difference in good quality cakes until I went cake tasting for my wedding and I soon learned the difference!

    Stephen was very thorough from day one and was open to any and all suggestions I had. As our wedding day got closer, I had already paid off the cakes but realized that the serving amounts were much larger than my expected guest count, as that amount changed from my original anticipated amount. Well not only did Pennington's adjust our order to accommodate our new count, but were quick to refund what they owed us.

    The quality of cake can be seen in the pictures (they were even better in person) and the taste was talked about for days with my family and friends. We had two cakes for our wedding with about 4 or 5 different flavors because all the cake was so good we couldn't narrow it down! Thank you Pennington's for being so incredible. We will be back!

    Pennington Cakes baked our Bride and Groom's cake for our wedding. They did a fantastic job. The cakes were super moist, EVERYONE was wondering who baked them. My brides cake was a 4 tier cake, so we had red velvet, white, and chocolate, (top tier for anniversary cake). Groom's cake was yellow cake with chocolate ganache- may sound simple but the flavor was amazing! Also, they were reasonable. Our wedding was in Austin and we checked out many vendors in the Austin area, yet Pennington Cakes in San Marcos topped all the bakeries in Austin- price and just delicious, moist cakes! Most definitely recommend them.

    Penningtons did an amazing job on our cake! They went through the tasting with us and showed pictures to help guide me to my perfect cake. On the day of our wedding, they were swamped with college graduation but they still showed up on time and gave us great service. They decorated our cake with fresh flowers, which were provided by our florist making it look gorgeous. Our cake was a white with raspberry filling and was delicious! I'm so happy we chose them.

    Our wedding cakes were amazing, not only were they beautiful but extremely delicious! My cake was a gorgeous 5 tier with beautiful mermaid scales going up the cake husband wanted his cake to be a Yeti ice chest, they delivered! Not only did it look exactly like a yeti ice chest, but they added fake ice cubes and a red fish coming out of the cooler. His cake was a huge hit at our wedding. Great friendly service with beautiful and great tasting product! My family has been using them for years and will continue to!

    We loved our cake! Since we live in Boston, we were unable to come in for a cake tasting before choosing Pennington's for our wedding. However, we hired them based on all of their amazing reviews, and they were definitely right! After a 20-minute phone consultation with Steven, we placed our order. The cake was absolutely DELICIOUS and looked just like I imagined it would! Our wedding coordinator saved the top tier for us to enjoy on our anniversary, but the cake was honestly so good that we couldn't wait. We invited a few friends back to our hotel and polished off every last crumb the same night! Oops! ;) Thank you for your beautiful and yummy work!
