    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!

    Very kind and helpful staff. The owner often corresponded with us directly and was always happy and helpful when answering my questions, making suggestions, or working with me to make changes to our order.

    Pennington Cakes was the only must have on my list. And it really was not negotiable! The flavour and presentation was everything I had hoped for and more. LOVE their cakes. Don't know how I am going to get one for my anniversary as I am on the other side of the world... might have to air freight it!

    It was Thursday 12/17/15 and I realized I forgot a crucial part of my wedding...the CAKE!!! I heard about Pennington's Cakes through wedding wire and saw all the good reviews so I called them Thursday afternoon. Even though it was very short notice I called and was transferred to Stephen. He was extremely helpful knowing I was getting married in less than one week. I didn't go to any consultations or taste their cakes. I got off their Facebook website and asked if I could get it exactly like that and when they delivered it, it was even prettier than the one I saw. When it was time to cut the cake I was extremely excited because I couldn't wait to taste it. When I had the first taste it was amazingly delicious!! The top part of the cake may not even make it for my husband's and I one year anniversary because it was that good!! I would definitely recommend Pennington's Cakes to anyone who is having an event or even just to satisfy their sweet tooth. I live four hours away from San Marcos and I will definitely drive the four hours to get another taste of their cakes!!!

    Pennington’s was recommended by a close family friend who used them for their own wedding. Stephen, the owner, did a tasting with us and was very helpful. My fiancé and I aren’t into anything super sweet and to our pleasant surprise, their sugar-free icing was exactly what we were looking for! They were easy to work with, had delicious cake and were very reasonably priced. I changed my mind on a couple of things during the planning process and they were very easy to communicate with. I showed them what look I was going for and left it up to them and my flower girl to create my cake. I had complete faith that they would do an amazing job, which made it easier for me to relax on the day of the wedding, which was invaluable. I am so happy I used them for my wedding! Kind people and a fantastic product!

    I decided to go with pennington's cakes after all the great reviews I have read about them and their services. We met with Stephen for a tasting and I can't even begin to describe how amazing all of the flavors are they offer. We decided to go with Italian creme and they were able to work with me on the cake design I found on pinterest I wanted. Also, my fiance is a game warden and they are able to make camo cupcakes for his grooms cake!
    They were so easy to work with and change my order as I have needed so far. I can't wait to taste everything and see how it all turns out.

    Excellent cake vendor!

    We actually booked Pennington’s cakes for our October wedding this year without even trying it beforehand. We don’t live locally and got married in Lockhart so it was hard to find the time for us to both try it. Based on other reviews we booked it and were incredibly pleased. The cake tasted amazing and the people at the shop were so friendly and easy to deal with. Would definitely recommend them for cakes

    We used Pennington's for a Graduation cake and they were awesome! We selected a design from their photos, made some custom requests, and asked for delivery to the restaurant where we had the graduation party. They were wonderful to work with over the phone (we were in another city), the cake was delivered as promised, looked exactly as we had requested, and I can honestly say this was the best cake I have ever tasted!!! Everyone raved about it! It was fresh, moist, beautiful and delicious! I would highly recommend them as a wedding caterer!

    The cakes were amazing! When we went to the cake testing, the options were all so delicious that we had trouble deciding. We had a bridal cake and a groom cake. Both looked beautiful and tasted great. We had three flavors; strawberry swirl (my favorite) raspberry filled white cake and a chocolate cake. All the guest enjoyed it and all complimented the great taste. I would definitely recommend Pennington Cakes!

    I had an idea for my wedding cake and visited with Steven and he asked me a few questions and I looked at his huge selection of books/photos and with his assistance, came up with a beautiful wedding cake and a grooms cake. Very happy with his team and the service I received. They all truly love their work. I would highly recommend this vendor.

    They were super easy to work with, very nice and helpful. They were patient with me and my husband picking out our cakes (we had no idea what we wanted). I had to call and change the size of the cakes twice, which they were fine with. They called the week of the wedding to make sure everything was still going as planned and delivered the cakes when they said they would and they both turned out perfect. I forgot to return my cake stand to them the following week, they called me that next week asking about it, and did not charge me for it, even though I had signed a paper saying I would be charged if I did not return it by a certain date. My mom and mother-in-law have both used them now. Would definitely recommend them!

    I only had to visit one vendor, Pennington's Cakes, to find the right baker. Pennington's took the time to create a special spiced apple cake for us to try. Of course, this required a second visit to the bakery - we weren't complaining! - where we tried not one but THREE new apple-spice creations. They were all delicious! I have never had a bad experience with Pennington's. Although the price listed here may be frightening, it was absolutely reasonable for what we were asking. The cake and cupcakes were beautiful. Thank you Pennington's for a fantastic and stress-free experience.

    This company was very professional and helpful during the whole process. They were good about staying in contact with me and gave me friendly reminders about bill pay dates but never hounded me. Very excepting of cake changes that I wanted to make. Cake was very beautiful and delicious... EXACTLY LIKE I PICTURED!!!

    Working with Stephen was such a pleasure. He was very quick to respond to emails and questions. Pennington cakes was highly recommended by two family friends that have used them on many occasions and I felt very confident that the cakes would be perfect. I was extremely happy and satisfied, the cakes were EXACTLY what I had envisioned, tasted amazing, and the prices were VERY reasonable. I couldn't be happier with my decision to use Pennington Cakes for our wedding!

    I contacted Pennington's Cakes about three weeks before my wedding. That's when I learned that people order their wedding cakes months and months in advance and that they go in for consultations to make informed decisions. Three weeks before my wedding, I had no time left to drive to San Marcos for a consultation, but Mr. Stephen made the time to have my consultation over the phone. I emailed him a Pinterest picture of the wedding cake I wanted, I mailed him actual ribbons matching my wedding theme and ...voila! I had exactly the cake I wanted arrive punctually on the day of my wedding. To top it off, they had the best prices I could find in the San Marcos area. Clearly, they know what they're doing. I highly recommend their services.
