I don't even know what to say. It was the best cake I have ever tasted. We are probably going to drive back there from Oklahoma and get another cake just to eat. We had petit fours in lieu of a traditional wedding cake, so we got to have both chocolate and wedding cake flavor, and they were both the best. They bake the cake the morning of the event, so everything was incredibly fresh. So many compliments from guests! Also they were very pretty, which is kind of important, but being TASTY is the most important. And tasty it was.

Simon Lee Bakery did an outstanding job on the wedding cake. Not only was the cake very beautiful, exactly what we wanted, but extremely delicious!!!! We had guests who had 3 pieces of cake. Judy Lee is wonderful to work with and extremely talented. We had 2 different cake flavors and 3 different fillings. The strawberries and whipped cream filing is to die for. The design of the cake was exactly what we wanted. Judy did an outstanding job and we highly recommend them. Karen

We used Simon Lee Bakery for both our wedding and groom's cakes. They were both custom cakes designed at our tasting. I could not have enough good things to say about the individuals we worked with and the quality of the cakes. Simon and Judy were great to work with, they responded promptly to questions, payment was easy to arrange in installments and all details were confirmed by the bakery. The cakes were gorgeous/spectacular and our guests have commented that they were the best cakes they have ever tasted. We had a strawberry wedding cake with butter cream icing and fresh strawberries in 2 layers and strawberry ganache in the other 2 layers. Our grooms cake was chocolate with fondant icing and a rum, strawberry and kiwi filling. We were not huge fans of fondant icing from out other experiences but we thought it tasted great. Both cakes were excellent, not too rich or sweet, but still moist and flavorful.
Also, the tasting was a great experience and was really unusual compared to the others we attended because of all the different flavors we were allowed to taste and we were allowed to bring an extra person (MOG) without any charge. Judy was also able to take all the pictures of cakes we had liked and design something during the tasting that incorporated everything we liked about each cake. The showroom is amazing as well and a great place to see all their amazing products. We will be using this bakery from now on for any cake we need, it is worth every penny.

Being an out of town bride, I heard from MULTIPLE people that Simon Lee was the best bakery in Austin. After, my family and I visited in person for a tasting, we knew we didn't need to look any further as the cakes tasted and designs we previewed were just amazing! They blew us away.
Judy was so wonderful and sweet and easy to work with! We gave her a photo of what we wanted for the Bridal Cake and the Groom's Cake and she made our vision come to life perfectly! She nailed it!
We got so many compliments all night long on how beautiful our cake was and people LOVED the College Football themed Groom's Cake.
Judy is a true artist. She is extremely talented and her cakes are the best in Austin. This was an easy decision and one of the best decisions we made in our planning!

Judy and her team are amazing! They made the cakes and sweets for my daughter's wedding. Our theme for the wedding was "romantic vintage". I looked for months for the perfect cake. When we had our cake tasting with Judy, I was so impressed. The display cakes were beautiful. I gave her pictures of the design we wanted for the bridal and groom's cakes, vintage cupcakes, and cookies. I gave her a piece of the fabric from the tablecloths for the color and a wedding invitation for the style. The bridal cake design we chose was a five layer pink cake that had vintage lace scrolls and big beautiful sugar roses. The grooms cake was a compass that she took styles from two different pictures to make one design. The cupcakes were four different designs and the cookies yet another. At the last minute I added five dozen macaroons to the order. She never hesitated for a moment. She even went as far as to send us different vintage style world maps to choose a background for the groom's cake to sit on.
We spent the day decorating the venue for the ceremony. We left to dress for the wedding and it just so happened that Judy delivered the cakes and other sweets while we were gone. When we returned to the venue the cakes and sweets were set up. I was blown away when I saw them. They were all more beautiful than the pictures I had given her. The colors and designs were perfect. The bridal cake was stunning! It was more spectacular than I could have imagined. The grooms cake was exactly what we asked for. The cupcakes and cookies were amazing. Not only was everything gorgeous, they were all delicious. I can't say enough good things about Simon Lee Bakery. They are wonderful.... Thanks Judy for the incredible cakes and sweets! You guys are fantastic!!!!!

While more expensive than its competitors, the cakes at Simon Lee are well worth it. Our layers were orange marmalade and chocolate mousse cakes, and they were delicious. When we walked over to cut the cake, it looked perfect, and I can't wait for our 1-year anniversary to roll around so that I can order a small orange marmalade cake to celebrate.

Judy did an amazing job. Her cakes are super delicious. The grooms cake was a party barge and it could not have turned out better. She added cake balls as details and she was able to execute my vision perfectly. Everyone was super impressed with her cakes and hands down she makes the best cakes.

when I first met with Judy Lee, she was friendly, professional, and patient. We tasted a few flavors, but didn't know what exact style of cake we wanted. She talked with us for a while and tried to get a feel for our style. We ended up with an exquisite, delicious, cake that everybody loved!

Our wedding cake was delicious, everyone loved it. Simon and Judy Lee worked so hard with us to find a design and style that would accomodate our guests as well as our budget. Judy was very helpful, as chosing a wedding cake can become overwhelming. She helped me work through several different design ideas before finding one that would make everyone happy. My only complaint was that the cake was not thoroughly inspected upon delivery. One of the decorative ribbons had fallen off one side, and was just laid on the side of the cake. I was so disappointed to see this in pictures, for as much as we paid.

Beautiful cake, fantastic service, and wonderful flavor. Tried many cakes in our search for the perfect wedding cake for my daughters wedding but hands down Simon Lee Bakery was the winner. The cake was a master piece to behold at the reception and received many compliments on the quality and taste of the cake. Highly recommend Simon Lee Bakery if you are looking for the perfect wedding cake for your special day.

From the moment I first tried their cakes, I wanted Simon Lee Bakery to make my wedding cake. Mine was the easy one. The five tier white cake with fresh strawberries in the center turned out beautifully. But the groom's cake was another story. My groom decided less than a week before the wedding that he wanted a different design on his cake. Judy Lee sat with him for about an hour going over the design (inspired by Minecraft) and talked with us the night before and DAY OF to make sure she had it right. It looked absolutely perfect and everyone loved it. Without her dedication to her craft, it could have been a disaster, but Judy and the Simon Lee Bakery pulled off a miracle (and they both tasted fantastic!).

My daughter's wedding cake was beautiful, fresh, and delicious! We received many wonderful guest comments on the appearance as well as the taste. Judy was a pleasure to work with and my daughter and I would definitely recommend Simon Lee Bakery as the go-to bakery in Austin. We tasted several cakes but theirs was far and above the others. Judy listened to what my daughter requested, asked questions, made suggestions, and then provided exactly what my daughter wanted. In fact, the cake exceeded our expectations. Judy is extremely artistic and the cake really showed off her talents. We brought the leftovers to a brunch on Saturday and received many praising comments again. Simon Lee is the only bakery I will use in the Austin area from now on.

I tried Simon Lee's cakes at work and just knew I had to have it for my wedding cake. I ended up tasting the other flavors, but nothing compared to the vanilla cake with strawberries and grand marnier cream filling! I brought a photo of the color and style of cake I wanted and definitely wanted to stick with butter cream instead of fondant icing. I ended up finding photos online from 3 different cakes that she made each layer beautifully detailed in different styled lace and swirls. I was very happy with the final product, and it tasted as amazing as ever! I just wish I could've come home with some!

I am sooo very happy that we went with Simon Lee for my daughter's wedding reception. We handed them the difficult task of creating a Star Wars Yoda cake for the groom's cake. It was MAGNIFICENT. Even better than we could have hoped for. And the bride's cake was exactly as the picture from which we had chosen it- elegant and simply beautiful. Furthermore, the cakes were scrumptious; they tasted as great as they looked. We couldn't be more pleased, and I would highly recommend Simon Lee to all my friends.

My cake turned out better than I could have imagined. It was gorgeuous and delicious..Usually you only get one-pretty or tasty. I got several compliments on how delicous and pretty my cake turned out. Thank you Simon Lee Bakery! They helped me figure out what I could do in my budget for the number of people I needed a cake for.

Judy at Simon Lee Bakery was absolutely amazing to work with! I had been to lots of different bakeries in Austin and had a very clear idea of what I wanted but was having a hard time finding a bakery that could fully understand my vision. Judy understood what I was wanting and even helped me to make my design even better with her professional suggestions! On the day of the wedding the cake arrived even better than I had anticipated!!! I suggest lemon cake, tiramisu, and buttercream cake! Each one was amazing! All of my guests kept commenting on how wonderful the cake was! Wedding cakes in general are pricey (Simon Lee's Bakery is comparable) but my wedding cake was worth every penny in the end! Thank you Judy for making my wedding cake even more amazing than I could have imagined!!!! I will definitely recommend you to friends and family!

Can I just say how DELICIOUS Simon Lee's cake is?! IT IS THE BEST CAKE YOU'LL EAT. Just try it.
We did cupcakes for our cake. We ordered red velvet cupcakes with swirled cheesecake in the center. Through communication errors possibly due to a slight language barrier, we got red velvet cupcakes with regular cheesecake cream filling. STILL DELICIOUS. The only complaints I have is that it was a little pricey, and the cupcake tower given to us for display was lined with a bright magenta ribbon, which stood out a bit much for my liking. It is truly delicious cake!! I would NEVER sign with anyone else until you try this cake first!!!

Our tree-impression cake and groom's log/mushrooms cake was a stupendous hit. Well done and very delicious, too!

I won a $600 gift card to Simon Lee Bakery at a bridal show. I wasn't going to have a wedding cake until I won that gift card, and I'm so glad I did! The cake was beautiful! It was everything I wanted. They did an amazing job. I was barely able to eat any of it, but everyone said it was delicious!

I brought an photo of a cake I had seen online to my consult at Simon Lee. When I arrived at my reception - there it was - the EXACT cake. I was so impressed that they recreated a design that wasn't their own and gave me the perfect cake. Everyone kept asking me where I ordered the cake because it was delicious! We had 50 guests, we ordered a cake to feed 80 and there was no cake left at the end of the night. It was amazing.
