Great cupcakes, five stars for their creative designs and five stars for their super patient and understanding stuff who took the trouble to digress the various ingredients and flavors in each cupcake. I will be back again to get my next half doZen :) yum yum bring a friend to split a cupcake as they are pretty big.
Let Them Eat Cake is the best place to get a cake for any occasion. I have been an Event Planner in the valley for over 10 years and 100% of my clients choose Let Them Eat Cake once they taste the cake and see the amazing designs!!
I've been going to this place for almost a year now, and they never let me down. They provide wonderful customer service and always try to go above and beyond.
I have been watching all of the popular cake shows and didnt really realize how expensive all the cakes were (they never say prices, but thats t.v. for ya!) and at first i was a little shocked to find out the how expensive a cake could cost. The staff did a wonderful job at explaining the pricing and gave me different options to bring down the cost.
Im not really a big "cake" or "sweets" person, but that has changes! There cake is moist and the fillings add a nice contrast to the flavors.
To me, it seems like the people who are complaining about this place are the ones with the "groupons" or other coupons. The staff is extremely flexible with trying to make all there customers happy. There has been a few times where i have tried to order a cake on short notice and was a little taken back at the "rush" charge. But it is understandable because of the late notce i gave them. After being a repeat customer and seeing their amazing work, I see why they need at least a week for custom orders. It would take me atleast a month to come up with the creative stuff they do!
Let them eat cake it definitely a place i would continue to recommend to my friends. Keep up the good work!
Cupcakes to me are what cookies are to the Cookie Monster. I love them. I sit at home and dream about new cake and filling flavor combinations that I can make in my kitchen. Note - I said dream - not bake. It was this process of daydreaming that prompted me to stop in at Let Them Eat Cake.
Over the past several years I have enjoyed many cakes from Let Them Eat Cake and the cupcakes didn't disappoint. Unable to decide on one or two flavors, I purchased the baker's dozen and selected 13 incredible cupcakes to take home (Oreo, Coconut Creme, 'Lil Deb, Boston Creme, Chocolate Rampage, Cosmos, Cherry Bomb, Better Than Sex, Butter Rum, Rusty Zebra, Promised Land, Velvet Rose and the new Caramel Apple). 13 cupcakes in a household of two people will last a long tine so the most difficult decision was (and still is) which cupcake to eat first / next.
Today is one week since my purchase and we are almost half way through the cupcakes. Each cake is so large that my daughter and I split each one down the middle, each of us enjoying half (fewer calories that way, right?). To date we have enjoyed the Oreo (oh my word), the coconut creme, the 'lil deb, and the butter rum. We packaged our treasures in a couple of large Ziploc bags and much to my delight, each cupcake has remained moist in the refrigerator even one week later.
I love the presentation and the creative flavors and can't wait to take a few dozen to my college reunion next month. The cupcakes will be the hit of the weekend. These really are cupcakes to lose your head over!
We had such a great experience at Let Them Eat Cake! We ordered our wedding cake here, and it was so delicious and beautifully done. It looked just as we asked, and just like the sketch that Barbara made out. The cake was delivered on time and professionally. We also love that they include a smaller, duplicate cake on the day of your 1 year anniversary. We are really looking forward to enjoying our wedding cake again!
Barbara was really wonderful to work with! We would definitely recommended Let Them Eat Cake!
Best cupcakes I have ever had hands down. They may not be the most moist but they are the best. The frosting & the filling blows everyone out of the water. Sprinkles are moist and they are chocolatey goodness but that's great if you ordered the chocolate cupcakes. If you order hazelnut, etc.. it should taste like something other than just chocolate, all their cupcakes taste the exact same no matter what you order and this is where Let Them Eat Cake succeeds. We ordered the "Strawberry Delight" for a coworkers birthday and OMFG they were amazing. Strawberry jam filled cupcakes with this amazing light and tasty strawberry frosting. Not only do they taste fantastic but they look fantastic. I am devoted to you Let Them Eat Cake!!
We found out about them through our wedding venue. We started going there to try out cupcakes. My husband and I have come to the conclusion that the cupcakes here are more of an experience than just a cupcake. Each one has delicious filling in the middle and there are tons of different types. Each very unique and delicious. I've seen many people complain about the dryness but I don't think it's an issue as much as character for the flavors of the cakes. We're super excited tom have our wedding cake from them soon and stop in when we get the chance for delicious cupcakes!
I really enjoy this place! My sister and I stumbled onto this place because she is obssessed with cupcakes and we were looking somewhere close to our house...the first time we went it was closed because this place closes early so be aware...the place is small and cute...they have different flavors each day...I had the better then sex cupcake and it was amazing! It was moist and rich...I love how each of the cupcakes has this delicious center! YUM!!! The cupcakes are pretty large and are very pretty! I would recommend this place to those that love cupcakes! girl that was there was very sweet and friendly....I hope to get my sons bday cupcakes from here this year! I like that its a local place! TRY IT!!!
Wow! I spotted these large, gorgeous cupcakes from a mile away at the Yelp event and just knew I had to grab one before I left. The presentation was amazing, with 4 different flavors available and plenty of staff to keep things stocked.
At 8:45pm they still had plenty to go around, so I happily grabbed a chocolate. Too stuffed to eat it even when I got home, I stored it in the fridge til later. Tonight, 24 hours later, I got it out of the fridge and it was soooo delicious. And the creamy chocolatey filling? What a surprise! It was tough to eat, but once I got a plate and a fork and stopped trying to wrap my mouth around it I was happy as can be.
I'll definitely be giving these as gifts sometime soon!
We bought a dozen cupcakes from Let Them Eat Cake through Groupon. A dozen is normally $36 but got them for half that. My wife had the red velvet cupcake but she found it dry. She also had the boston cream and found it too lemony. I had better luck. I had the the oreo and enjoyed it. It was well constructed with a second Oreo inside. I also enjoyed the peanut butter cupcake. I was surprised to find chocolate inside, instead of a Reese's miniature. The remainder were one variety of chocolate or another and were good. The cake was rich and had frost or filling inside.
Be aware that it is closed Sunday and Monday and only open to noon on Saturday. The have a small seating area. The is a wide selection of cupcakes and they have specials.
