Sue is wonderful! Not only is she very personable, but she is also wonderful at making beautiful, delicious cakes! My now-husband and I met with her 6 months ahead of time. She invited us over to her home, where we were able to meet her, look at her portfolio, discuss our ideas, and of course, try her cake! We loved all of her designs and she had wonderful ideas! We had a movie themed wedding, but didn't want it to be over-the-top cheesy. Sue thought of the perfect way to keep our wedding cake classy, but was still able to incorporate our theme into it by creating a groom's cake. Her prices are very affordable, and she truly looks out for her customers on how to get the most for your money. I can't wait to have another event, so she can make another cake for us!

I heard about Sue from a family friend and had liked her on Facebook and saw the amazing cakes she could do. My now husband and I meet with Sue the December before our wedding and since she is a huge SF GIants fan and so is my husband our meeting went on a lot longer than normal but was worth it. Sue was very understanding as we needed to have part of the cake gluten free and was able to work that into the design. She called me the week of my wedding saying how she couldn't wait to make our cake. The day of I couldn't wait to see it and loved how it came out.

Sue Faina is an artist of baking and based on all the meetings, phone calls, and emails, I can truly tell she loves making cakes and not only that, her cakes are so above and beyond the word tasty, I can only describe them to be delicious! She has many cake flavors and fillings to choose from that my husband (still getting used to saying/typing that haha) and I had three “taste cakes” made. We ultimately did the black and white cake with vanilla custard and fresh raspberries with raspberry preserves and it was such a crowd pleaser. Since lately it seems like all my friends and relatives are getting married, I’ve been eating more wedding cake this past year and half than I’d like to admit, but with that said, Sue’s cake is hands down the best cake I’ve had. I even had a couple cousins who recently got married say that my cake was better than theirs, even though all brides like to think they had the best everything at their own weddings. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to serve a store bought cake at a birthday, family get-together, or other important life event because there is really no reason to when Sue is still making cakes.

YUM YUM YUM. I had so many compliments on my wedding cake! We did the Red Velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and it was DEVINE! Thank you so much Sue, you were awesome from beginning to end!!!

Our experience with Sue was fun and relaxed. She bakes a cake for you to taste and let's you take the rest home. She drew a picture of our cake and the real cake looked exactly the same, if not prettier. We had a 3 tiered chocolate cake with raspberry filling. It was delicious and moist. Her prices were competitive and fit right into our budget.

Sue of Sue Faina Cakes is amazing to work with! She is so nice and personable. She offers incredible designs and a wide variety of flavors and fillings for an amazing price. My husband and I went with an applesauce cake with cinnamon apples and maple filling. We chose a cream cheese frosting (which was super delicious!) with pink swirly decorations. We chose a more simplistic design, but her portfolio was filled with anything but! She offered a beautiful cake stand that we just had to pay a deposit for. And when it came time to wrap up the top tier (which my mother did) Sue had hidden instructions on the bottom of the cake stand so they would know exactly how to wrap it to reduce damage to the cake (including frostbite). Also, a polite reminder was on the bottom of the cake stand about returning it to Sue, including her contact info, so my family would know to return it if I had forgotten to tell them (which I did). I am so happy we chose Sue Faina Cakes to do our wedding cake. All of our guests thought it was moist and delicious and most of them wanted seconds!

I wish I could say enough to thank Sue at Sue Faina Cakes for her AMAZING cake! Sue was one of the first vendors we met so long ago and I still remember sitting in her living room tasting cakes and being overwhelmed by my design options! All I had to do was point out just a few examples and from a tiny photo...she created my dream cake!
Wedding Cake is a tradition that almost everyone looks forward to! The special way we chose to display the cake right in the center of the room helped showcase the elegant and beautiful cake she created for us. As for taste…I am not exaggerating when I say that I have tasted more than 100 wedding cakes in my career in the hotel industry, and hers was the most delicious, fresh, moist, creamy, and luscious and perfectly balanced flavored cake I’d ever had in my life! I can’t wait to order another cake from her someday!
We met with Sue and told her a special story of our cake topper and she captured the elegance and design we dreamed of. When the wedding was over, we literally had family members asking to eat the leftovers! It was gone in minutes!
Sue was even kind enough to leave ME a thank you note and lovely candle in a gift bag as thanks for choosing her. She has style and class that is rare amongst vendors these days. She is humble and doesn't make you feel like you are bothering her with questions or design ideas. You can tell she loves what she does and has a natural talent for it!
I look forward to working with her again and intend to order several cakes over the years...we've found a special way to celebrate...and good thing she has lots of flavors yet to try!
I recommend her chocolate hazelnut and carrot cake. You'll feel as if you've had a slice of homemade fresh cake with every bite...not that frozen less than fresh approach of other bakers (other more expensive bakers!!!).
Thanks Sue! We love you!

Sue Faina is an artist! She did such an amazing job creating our wedding cake. I was blown away when I saw the cake the day of our wedding...it was better than I could have ever expected!!! Sure truly made a cake that look absolutely stunning and tasted even better! I can't wait for our one year anniversary so I can have an excuse to order another one of Sue's tasty works of art! Simply amazing!
