Beautiful Cakes!    posted 7/27/2012

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.

LOVE LOVE LOVE THE CAKES!!!    posted 1/26/2013

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! :)

Destination Wedding made easy and DELICIOUS    posted 10/25/2012

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!

Amazing Cake!!    posted 9/27/2012

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.

beautiful cake    posted 8/29/2012

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

a taste of heaven    posted 7/6/2012

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!

Creative Cake...and Delicious Too    posted 5/20/2012

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 love A Cake LIfe!    posted 4/30/2012

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!

Delicious Cake with Excellent Customer Service!!    posted 3/25/2012

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.

AMAZING    posted 3/8/2012

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.

Fantastic cake and service!!    posted 1/24/2012

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!

Highly recommend A Cake Life!    posted 12/2/2011

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!

Beautiful and Fresh    posted 4/4/2014 (updated 4/5/2014)

We sampled cake from two bakers. In the end, we picked Kristin because of her professionalism and focus on wedding cakes. At our cake tasting, Kristin sat down with us to explain all the favours and listen to what we wanted. We were not rushed and there were no distractions. Her cake favours were simple and delicious, and she could do the clean, simple style we were looking for.

Our simple 2 tiered cake with horizontal textured white butter cream and an aqua sugar ribbon was beautiful. We were very happy with our choice of coconut cake with cool lemon filling and guava cake with lilikoi cream filling. It was the perfect tropical choice for our destination wedding.

Kirstin was also very accommodating. She didn't make us go with our original large cake size after our guest number was reduced by 20 people. She revised our contract and cake size without complaint. This help us go home with less leftover cake.

A Cake Life also helped provide a cupcake for our friend's birthday that was shared with our wedding day. We were also happily surprised with the 2 cupcakes waiting for us at the end of the day in our room. The cupcakes were the perfect treat and reminder after the wedding.

Great value and great cake!    posted 3/27/2014 (updated 3/28/2014)

For a small destination wedding, A Cake Life was the best price we could find. On top of that, they were great to work with, super patient, and did everything they said they would.

Beautiful cakes, professional service!    posted 3/25/2014 (updated 3/26/2014)

My new husband and I enjoyed every minute of working with Kristin at A Cake Life! From the moment we sat down for cake tasting to eating leftover cupcakes back home in Alaska, the experience could not have been better. Kristin was always thorough and quick to respond to our questions and order changes. Our 96 cupcakes and beautiful cake topper were delivered in plenty of time to the North Shore even despite extremely inclement weather. I only hope we have another opportunity to work with A Cake Life in the future...birthdays in Hawaii, renewal of vows...who knows, but I certainly hope to find an excuse!

Beautiful and Yummy!    posted 3/9/2014 (updated 3/10/2014)

I was one of those brides that thought a cake was the least important part of my wedding. I thought that choosing any cake company would work. I was wrong. I did a couple of cake tastings before coming to A Cake Life and I was blown away by their samples! Kristin is very professional and is very willing to help you design your “perfect cake”.

First of all, I was planning my wedding from San Diego, CA. So the one trip I made to Hawaii meant scheduling every vendor I needed and making the most of my time with each. I called up Kristin at the last minute and stopped by her shop to pick up the samples. Although she was on her way out, she was kind enough to to help answer some quick questions I had about her cakes.

Secondly, I couldn’t decide on flavors, whether I wanted cupcakes or tiers, and my “true” cake budget. I thought my indecisiveness would annoy Kristin, but she helped me stay calm and totally understood the difficulty I was having on my end. She never made me feel that I was wasting her time or that I was just a paying customer, she wanted to make sure I was getting the type of cake I wanted for my wedding.

Finally, after all the discussions we had via email (she was very prompt in answering) she produced a beautiful cake that awed my guests and tasted great! I’m telling you, her samples were that delicious that I was talking about my cake first to people, rather than flowers, location, dresses, etc.

I definitely would recommend A Cake Life for any upcoming wedding or event! She has a creative mind when designing these cakes and will become a great asset for those who have no idea what they want. I will say that I started to love the idea of having a cake at my wedding as I worked with Kristin on mine! She’s reliable, quick to respond, has her experience to give you support and ideas, and she also cares about her clients! Thank you Kristin for my making my wedding cake a superb addition!

Deliciously Beautiful Cakes    posted 12/19/2013 (updated 12/20/2013)

I loved my wedding cake. I had a destination wedding so did a lot of my planning via email. Kristin was extremely easy to work with and responded to my emails in a timely manner. We met for a tasting at the Wedding Cafe and she was really nice and answered all the questions we had.

I kept my wedding cake simple, three tiers with white fondant and a plum fondant ribbon (one of my wedding colors) running along each tier. I then had my florist dress it up with some white orchids. I have a huge sweet tooth and really enjoyed my cake on my wedding night. I highly recommend the guava cake w/ guava frosting and coconut cake w/ lilikoi frosting. So good! I ended up flying home with the top tier of my cake to save for our one year anniversary...can't wait!

Delicious!!    posted 10/24/2013

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!
