I highly recommend Kristin for any sort of cake design, small or big. She is so meticulous with each detail and really listens to her clients and works hard to deliver what they envision. My cake was 5 tiers, purple ombre, pearls, ruffles and gum paste flowers. It looked so amazing. Everyone could NOT stop talking about how beautiful it was. We had guava, lilikoi and cookies and creme flavor cake. The cake was moist, perfect texture and tasted delicious. Kristin is organized and has a good response time. During our consolation she was professional and helpful. Great service.

Kristin from A Cake Life is magnificent! I had my cake custom made to fit a sea/ocean theme and Kristin got it exactly the way my husband and I wanted it. She even made Nemo and Dora from scratch and they looked just like the characters! The cakes/cupcakes on the other hand are sooo delicious. It's not too sweet like other cupcake vendors and it was so fresh tasting! My husband normally doesn't eat any types of sweets but when I insisted he try her cake/cupcakes he loved them! I'm going to continue using A Cake Life to do my niece's first birthday as well! Love them! Highly recommend you go with them if you haven't chose a cake yet.
Thank you Kristin and Staff from A Cake Life! :)

I highly recommend A Cake Life, especially for destination weddings. Kristin created a beach themed cake topper with tiered cupcakes all decked out with seashells, pink pearls, and pink orchids for my reception. She was very personable over the phone, and super thorough and professional with emails. A Cake Life just made it all so easy. I never imagined my cake and cupcakes would turn out as gorgeous as they did. The only downside to any of it was I had a destination wedding and could not take my top-tier with me! It was SO DELICIOUS! I thought I might slide some through security on my way home. Thank you guys for helping to make my day so beautiful!

Kristin from A Cake Life did such an amazing job with our wedding cake. I can't say how happy we all were at how beautiful the cake turned out. After many changes on my part, I finally decided on a design and Kristin was always patient and quick to respond to my questions. She was amazing to work with. Not a single complain on my part. The flavors were great, so good we had it for breakfast the next day. :) Thank you for such a wonderful cake.

Everyone loved our wedding cake. I never had the chance to meet with Kristin but she was able to execute what I wanted in the cake. She was able to make suggestions too, to make the cake look better. A lot of people commented on the flowers thinking they were real but were truly sugar flowers that looked really good. Cake so delish

I had my destination wedding in Hawaii 6/22/12. I live in california and had to do all my research online. I came across reviews for cake life and they were all great so I decided to start communication. From my first email Kristin was great! She is so nice and answered ALL my questions, and I had A LOT! Responses were quick. I sent her image of a cake design I liked and she created it beautifully. I had a two tier cake for 46 servings. Bottom tier was yellow butter with fresh strawberry filling and top tier was coconut with pineapple filling. They both tasted amazing but my favorite was the coconut. Just delicious! All the guests loved the cake. The taste and look. I'm so happy I went with A Cake Life. Thank you Kristin!

The thought of planning my Hawaiian wedding all the way from Texas seemed daunting and stressful. However, it was neither of those things. After doing some research online and receiving recommendations from various other vendors, A Cake Life was the obvious choice to me for a creative, delicious wedding cake. I began the process by emailing my inquiry of availability and pricing. I soon received an abundance of information from Kristin at A Cake Life. The fears I mentioned above were quelled by the level of creativity and professionalism I received from them. They took my vision and brought it to life, providing me with sketches and exact details of what my cake would look like. I was also highly impressed with the affordability and value I received in my cake. We signed a detailed contract and communicated frequently in the period before my wedding. On the big day, the cake was delivered on time and matched the sketch I received perfectly. The cake was exactly what we had discussed and what I had envisioned. More importantly, the cake was absolutely delicious! A guest at our wedding commented that we were lucky because most cakes are pretty, but not delicious, and our cake was both. Thank you A Cake Life for the wonderful service and product you provided!

We loved the cake we purchased from A Cake Life for our wedding. The flavor was delicious, and the cake was moist. The cake was decorated perfectly, and they were even able to use our special cake topper that traveled with us all the way from the mainland. We worked with Kristin who was helpful with giving suggestions for a cake that fit our vision and budget. She was also very prompt and kind. i would recommend A Cake Life to anyone!

A Cake Life provided excellent service and delicous, beautiful cake. Kristin was so easy to work. She was on top of it and responsive throughtout the whole process. She accommodated several changes to our order with ease and was quick to update our contract, and make alterations to our design. I'm not a huge cake fan, but this cake was fantastic! I highly recommend the white buttercream cake with strawberry filling.

Kristin and her team did an amazing job, not once but twice! We ordered an Alaskan themed grooms cake for our rehearsal dinner. She paid attention to the little details and it showed. The other was our wedding cake. We ordered a wedding cake with additional sheet cakes... super moist and to die for! Our wedding cake left us speechless... it was gorgeous and everything we wanted and more! We are OBSESSED with the white cake with fresh strawberry filling and the chocolate cake with peanut butter filling. They were peerfect. We are already thinking of reasons to order another cake.

We had a destination wedding and didn't stress one bit about our cake. A Cake Life made everything very simple! Plus...WE LOVED THE CAKE!!!
Kristin and her assistant did a phenomenal job on all of the details: from creating an aesthetically appealing cake, an extremely satisfying cake, to delivering and setting the cake up; everybody was very impressed! The coconut cupcakes were fantastic and the guava cake with strawberry cream filling was absolutely amazing!
Additionally, we had a mishap on our end. Kristin and her assistant waited for someone to meet her at the reception site for 40 minutes. That dedication is unbelievable. They didn't complain that we were late, they just made sure we were happy with everything!...and we were!
I recommend A Cake Life to anyone!

Kristin was amazing to work with. We got cupcakes with a cake topper - red velvet and yellow cake/strawberry cream filling. Our guests were raving about the cakes, especially that strawberry cream filling. You can tell they use the best ingredients and the cake was so moist. It was even better than I remembered from our tasting.
Kristin was also extremely professional and very on top of her communication. She was super responsive, even followed-up with me at times I owed her information. The delivery/display was all done without a hitch. I highly recommend them!

Kristen has the best tasting cakes, which was the most important thing to me. She chose flowers that fit our colors and theme perfectly. She even left a four-pack of cupcakes for us to have for after the wedding. And, she even promises a half dozen cupcakes of your top tier for any locals on their 1-year anniversary-so no need to eat frozen cake on your anniversary. She is very professional and organized!

The devil's food cake with cookies and cream filling was our choice! We had out friends from Ewa do our tasting because we live in Cali. They LOVED Kristen's professionalism and organization and sold us on the cake! We loved our outcome! And Kristen is no joke!!! She is ON IT and will make any bride rest assured that they are in capable hands! We order 30 mini cakes with fondant and Kristen and her crew delivered on time and with total perfection! We highly recommend A Cake Life!

I had an outdoor wedding & reception, and chose to go with a buttercream frosting instead of fondant, primarily to save on costs. I was a little concerned that it would melt before it was served, but it held up perfectly and looked exactly like I had envisioned.

Kristin and A Cake Life were absolutely amazing for my wedding at the Hale Koa. The cake was beautiful and tasted great. So many of my guest were impressed by the appearance of the cake. It looked exactly how I wanted it to look. Kristin was easy to work with even from a distance. She is sweet and actually loves what she does. She's an amazing business woman and I would pick her over and over again.

I was referred to them by my wedding planner. They don't have too many options that it seems almost impossible to choose just one combination but also not enough choices that you feel like you are limited. They have just right enough of choices. My parents tried five of their cakes and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. We decided to go with Devil's Food Chocolate Cake with Cookies n Cream filling and it was delicious. I was worried that it might be too sweet but it wasn't. It was perfect balance of sweet and lightness. Every one of our guests enjoyed them- to a point even though the top tier was saved for us, they ate it all after the wedding! I highly recommend them.

I have used A Cake Life for numerous occasions now - mom's birthday, sakura red velvet girl's day cupcakes, my wedding, my sister's "Mad Hatter" big 3-0 themed party, and my dad's upcoming birthday this November.
Kristin is so easy to work with and never says NO when I pitch random design ideas. She made my mom a B-52 cockroach cake, and will be creating my dad a sculpted english bulldog cake. Kristin and her team are so creative and talented.
For my wedding I drew a sketch of what I wanted my cake to look like. The design and colors matched my invitation - grey, yellow and ivory with a quatrefoil pattern on the middle tier. I promise, the cake turned out way better than my sketch. The detal and fondant work was so unbelievabley clean. Not just that the cake tasted delicious...what more could I have asked for?!?!
I would refer A Cake Life to any bride/groom or anyone planning a special event. Kristin's cakes brighten up the room and in my case turn into a conversation piece! :) I trust A Cake Life that they will do a great job and deliver everything as promised...and then some! A Cake Life also has a brand new store and it is super clean, which makes me feel comfortable and trust the quality of her work.

We showed Kristin what we wanted and she delivered. The cake was exactly what we pictured when we showed her what we wanted the cake to look like. Not only was the cake beautifully crafted, it was also one of the best wedding cakes I've ever tasted (and I'm not being bias). She got it right to every last detailI would recommend A Cake Life to anyone who is looking for a cake with beautiful details and is delicious to eat. Best part of this experience, Kristin listened to all the details and accents we wanted. Thank you Kristin for an awesome cake!

We chose A Cake Life after doing a lot of research and quite a few tastings! We planned our Hawaii wedding from Australia - Kristin made us feel very confident with choosing her as our vendor - she was responsive, organised and no request was too difficult.
After tasting their different flavors and seeing their previous work - we knew A Cake Life was the right choice for us. I provided Kristin a design of a cake that we liked - and she brought it to life with even more character.
Kristin worked really well with our other vendors as well - so I didn't have to worry about anything on the day. When we saw the cake at the reception - it really lived up to our expectations and more.
We probably spent more than I had expected to on the cake - but the Groom was very insistent on the type of cake that he wanted, and he has expensive tastes unfortunately.
We had three different flavors for each of the three tiers with fondant icing to feed approximately 100 guests. All the guests commented on how great the cake tasted.
Overall, we couldn't have been be happier with these guys. Having a destination wedding and no wedding co-ordinator was difficult, A Cake Life was just so easy to deal with, the final product was not only beautiful, it tasted great too.
