  1. All in one cakes does an amazing job and are quite affordable. Huge bride's cake and a large groom's for about $400

    1. I'm not sure about the prices from these two bakers:
      1. Nancy made our wedding and groom's cake and they were wonderful! If I were to do it again, I would have ordered a smaller wedding cake and bigger groom's cake (so there was some leftover groom's cake). The prices were reasonable I thought:
      2. I've had Lucy's cakes and they're super-yummy. Again, I'm not sure about their prices relative to your budget:

      1. Used Michelle's Patisserie for my daughter's wedding a few years ago. Price was reasonable, cake was yummy, and Michelle was lovely to work with.

          I agree: Michelle's Patisserie is fantastic.

        2. The bride and I had ours done at Lucy's. It was exceptional.

          1. When we got married (it was 8 yrs ago, so I can't recall the prices), we used Upper Crust Bakery (the guy we worked with there is named Seven (yes, really), and he was still there about a year ago). We did Italian Cream & Gateau Marisa (white cake, custard, strawberries) for the bride's cake & the chocolate/mocha cake for the groom's cake. All of them were fantastic - moist, tasty, and beautiful. The samples Upper Crust provided us for our tasting were MUCH better than the samples we tried from several other bakeries, including Lucy's and Sweetish Hill, and weren't any more expensive than the others. (People rave about Lucy's, but I haven't been overly impressed, and at our tasting session, they served us stale, fridge-tasting samples!)

              I third Michelle's Patisserie. She was very reasonably priced for the gorgeous and tasty cakes we got. She has a kick bones tres leches cake!

                I am glad I am not the only one that doesn't think Lucy's isn't that great. I had samples there, and was not impressed at all.

                I don't get all the raves...especially for wedding cakes. If it was a birthday, that is one thing, but a super important cake, and to get just average cake..bleh.
