    32 Standard flavors!
    That's more than Baskin Robbins :P

    Sigh. The yelp offer half lied to me.
    It was buy 3 get 1 free cupcakes :(

    I only bought 1. The eclair, which had tons of flavor in the frosting and the cupcake was moist, but there was something missing from its neighbor, Hapa cupcakes. But they have a way better variety. WAYYY better.
    They're both way better than the ones you and I could make.

    They do take some time to get your cupcake, which I may suspect is because they make the bottom pre-made and the top is where its made-to-order. The lady was also kind enough to include a B1G1 free card in the box of the one cupcake I had.

    OH YEAH some cupcakes are GLUTEN FREE AS WELL~

    The flavors you can get:
    1.Chocolate with Chocolate Fudge
    2. Chocolate with Chocolate Mousse
    3. Chocolate with Chocolate Chip Mousse
    4. Chocolate with Mint Chip Mousse
    5. Chocolate w/ Peanut Butter
    6. Chocolate w/ Strawberry Mousse
    7. Chocolate with vanilla mousse
    8. chocolate with coconut

    White based
    9. w/ choco fudge
    10. w/chocolate mousse
    11. with chocoalte chip mousse
    12 with chocolate mint chip mousse
    13. w/ Peanut Butter
    14. w/ Strawberry Mousse
    15. with vanilla mousse
    16. with coconut

    This is just a review on our wedding cake tasting.

    We were able to book our complimentary tasting with Patty's Cakes on a Wednesday evening. Their shop was already closed, so it was nice and private. We were offered 3 cakes to try, along with several fillings to try. We surprisingly really liked the banana cake and the white cake, and I liked the red velvet. Their prices are reasonable (about $4 per serving) and delivery to our venue in south Orange County was about $50.

    Only drawback is that they don't let you try the other cakes we were more interested (coconut or carrot). They do take credit card though! One to consider if you're planning your wedding. Check them out.

    LOVED my wedding cake so much! From the design to the flavor...it was perfection. We ended up choosing the lemon cake with Bavarian cream and raspberry filling (their "Razzle" cupcake if you ever want to drop in a try it). AMAZING. When I used to think lemon cake...I words that would come to mind were "tart" or "too sweet"....but no, Patty's was light and delightful. The guests loved it and one of them even told me they had 4 slices!

    Philip made the whole process easy and smooth. From cake tasting and communicating with me regarding any details....we had no problems. I decided to have fresh flowers to decorate my cake and Patty made it so beautiful. Everything I imagined and more. And prices were much reasonable than the other bakery I inquired about :)

    Thank you Patty and Philip for making the process so easy and making our wedding cake so beautiful and DELICIOUS! (BTW--got a lemon cake ball when I dropped off my cake stands and it was delish! I'll be back whenever I'm in the area!)

    Amazingly, I don't feel bad about eating cupcakes from here!

    They are technically made to order here.  I think they only stuff the cupcakes and top them when someone orders.  At least I sure hope so since they make you wait a while and there's not cupcakes in the front or a display case (only for the cake balls).

    Staff: friendly and helpful; one of them is kinda impatient though.

    All the cupcakes are very airy and light, like a little delicious sweet cloud of yumminess!  The cake itself does not feel dense or overbearing and the mousse is just a light touch of flavor added on.  

    My favorites: White Cake Ball, Banana Split, White with White, and Neopolitan.

    Highly recommend ordering ahead if you can.

    First of all, whoever invented cakeballs needs to be given some sort of awesomeness award. I mean just the improved icing to cake ratio should be reason enough!

    So a little bit of history, my first review of Patty's years ago was just so so. It wasn't great, it wasn't horrible, just straddling that middle line.

    Fast forward to yesterday, my friend's baby shower where she had a platter of red velvet and smores? rocky road? cake balls as well as PB&J, and strawberry chocolate (?) mini cupcakes laid out amongst a bevy of other desserts. At the time, I didn't know these had come from Patty's, but they did look quite appetizing.

    Upon approaching that table, the first thing I went for was the PB&J cupcake. I mean, you can't go wrong with PB&J anything. Right at that first bite, my nod of approval was instantaneous. Wow, i wish these weren't so mini-sized! Everything about it was just right.

    Eventually, I got suckered into "going halfsies" on the red velvet cake ball which unfortunately, wasn't too pronounced in "red velvety-ness" but still a worthy bite nonetheless. Generally I tend to shy away from overchocolatey pastries because they can be a bit too rich for my palate,  but this particular one wasn't overwhelmingly sweet. It had a bittersweetness to it which I appreciated.

    Then it hit me, I still didn't know which bakery these had originated and that's just not proper! So earlier this morning,  i asked my friend who then sent me a yelp link. I clicked on the link and was shocked to see "Update My Review". I was surprised cause surely I'd remember cupcakes and cake balls like these.  It wasn't until I read my old review that I realized which bakery this was!

    Wow, very much improved from my first Patty's experience. I really was impressed and in awe even.

    I absolutely love Patty's Cakes!  Patty and Phillip are a pleasure to work with and I couldn't have had my dream wedding cake without them!  Not only was the cake pretty but it was tasty as well!!  We had the lemon with raspberry filling and red velvet with choc chip filling!

    YUM YUM!!

    PS must try their smores cakeballs! TO DIE FOR!

    It takes a lot of willpower to drive past this place and not pop in. But for my waistline's sake I do it. On one fatty friday night, the bf and I went here for the first time. We got the butter pecan and chocolate salted caramel cupcakes. Delectable flavors but most importantly, moist moist moist!!!

    I ordered my wedding cake from Patty's cakes. I had lemon and white cake. Patty even made the lemon flavor purple to match my wedding colors! It was amazing. Even though my day flew and I barely got to eat any of this amazing cake, all my guests raved about how delicious and moist the cake was and the purple lemon was a pleasant surprise!

    Patty and her staff are so easy to work with! She makes sure you get EXACTLY what you want on your special day. It is all about YOU! Her staff showed up right on time and set it up with ease and no stress! I would definitely recommend Patty and Patty's Cakes for any occasion!

    THANK YOU PATTY!!!

    My boss got me a baby shower cake from here, so I can only speak of that and nothing of the store.

    Patty's served up a perfectly fluffy chocolate cake with chocolate chips & white frosting with a adorable penguin on skates & a hockey stick.  :)  So fitting as I love both penguins & my LA Kings!  (Who just beat the ducks!  But I digress...)

    The frosting was fresh cream & everything was the right amount of sweetness.  Very light & non-guilt ridden!  Hehe.  The only flaw I saw was that part of the cake was uneven (to a quarter inch!) & it was covered up by about a inch of frosting to level out with the rest of the cake.  Meh, overall it was still pretty spectacular.

    Definitely on my to visit list & I'll keep them on my mind for any future events!

    Best cupcakes ever!! I ordered cupcakes here for my engagement party, and I couldn't have been more pleased. Professional & very friendly staff. I'm a sucker for anything lemon, and their *lemon drop* cupcake was Delish!!! They nailed it by adding an old school lemon head in the center. Very cute addition. You will not be disappointed.

    Found Patty's Cakes by searching for a nearby bakery with gluten-free cupcakes for our daughter's 2nd birthday. We got her a vanilla cupcake with strawberry frosting, and she LOVED it. She's not really a sugary frosting type of kid, and Patty's Cakes knows how to make delicious "just right" frosting. My wife and I sampled a bunch of others too. My fav was the mint chocolate chip, hers was the lemon. 4 stars only because the cake portion of the cupcake was good, but not off-the-charts great like we've had at just a couple other cupcake specialty shops. Great customer service, good buying experience, we will definitely be coming back.

    This place is awesome! I bought 3 different cupcakes and a cake ball and they were all delicious! The flavors were lemon raspberry, peanut butter and jelly, banana, and a s'mores cake ball. I loved all of them, and Patty's gives out coupons and they have a great check-in offer. Like others have said, the cake balls are really big and they're very moist and dense. They're the perfect size and indulgence for a satisfying dessert.

    I'm such an indecisive person but the guy behind the counter was very patient with me as I stared with my jaw dropped at their huge wall of flavors. The cake balls are behind a glass counter at the front but they frost the cupcakes in the back as soon as you order them. They also offer free fruit infused water and a table to sit at while you're waiting. Patty's is great - I'll definitely keep them in mind the next time I need a cake or cupcakes for an event. They do weddings, too.

    I ordered two dozen mini cupcakes for my cousin's high school graduation and it was a huge hit.

    1. the mini cupcakes were perfect sizes for people to eat after the ceramony.
    2. patty added cap decorations when I told her it was for a graduation.
    3. they tasted amazing! super moist and rich but not too sweet!
    4. cupcakes were ready to go as promised pick up time!
    5. every staff was friendly and always smiling!

    therefore, five stars!

    our flavors were red velvet and chocolate.

    Love the custom icing and made to order cupcakes.

    My husband loves the chocolate filled cakes and the icing is amazing.

    I really like the red velvet cake.

    Service was amazing and very friendly. They made the creation of each cupcake as important as the last. I
    We never felt rushed or hurried and my 3yo took her time selecting very patient.

    Patty's cakes catered my wedding with almost 200 cupcakes and a small cake for my now husband and I! Everything looked amazing and we got so many compliments on our cupcakes! Our guests enjoyed the various flavors (The Butter Pecan went pretty quickly in the night) and my husband and I had The Elvis made into a small 6inch cake for just the two of us! Thank you Patty's Cakes!

    I'm in love with cupcakes!! So my sisters bought me two cupcakes from this place and they were amazing!

    Neapolitan - has a white cake which was moist, and has a chocolate and strawberry frosting and it was really good. The frosting is not too sweet and it's really light, not heavy and overbearing. It was great! I normally like very sweet frosting, but the light taste of the frosting worked well with the cake.

    Piña Colada - my favorite out of these two. I loved the pineapple filling and the white cake was perfectly baked, not dry at all. The coconut on top tasted fresh and was delicious!

    I plan to visit this place myself next time around to try some more!

    I ordered my wedding cake from here and it was great.  Only cost around $280 so it was a little less than most others places I tried.  They delivered early to my wedding, cake looked beautiful and tasted great! Couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks Patty's Cakes!

    Oh, and THE CAKE BALLS ARE AMAZING!!!

    My wedding was back in July and we got our cake at Patty's! Originally my husband was going to bake our wedding cake all by himself but after a few test cakes and a lot of stress we decided we just had to have someone make one for us. My mother-in-law recommended this place as she had a friend who knows Patty.

    We had an awesome experience there! We made the drive from Huntington Beach which wasn't bad at all and once we got there we tried some different cake flavors and various frosting and fillings. I already had a pretty clear picture of what I wanted the cake to look like and Patty was so helpful with choosing exactly the design that I wanted.

    Orchids were a main decoration at our wedding so we mentioned that we wanted them on the cake and she needed us to bring in the flowers so that they could be placed before they were delivered.

    Well of course I was so stressed and busy that the day before we didn't make it over there to drop off the flowers ! My bestie called and talked to them and Patty put them on herself the day of the wedding before my guests had arrived at the wedding reception site.

    The cake was delicious and affordable for our budget which was tight! It was so pretty and came out exactly like I wanted it! I was so relieved to be in good hands with our cake since it's such an important aspect of a wedding!

    I definitely recommend this place to brides add well to everyone! When we were there it was very busy and their delicious cakes and cupcakes are obviously so great that they sell themselves !

    Thanks Patty! So much !!!

    Ok Patty. You have redeemed yourself!  

    After my last review, I was contacted by the owner to give them another try.  A credit was arranged to compensate for the disappointment from my graduation party.  Nonetheless, 5 stars for their customer service.  

    I have been weary of getting anything from Patty's for any special occasion.  I finally had a family dinner this week and grabbed some cupcakes.  

    The cupcakes were phenomenal. I got an assortment of flavors and we shared bites from each of the cakes.  All were moist and delicious.  My family raved about them this time, loving the sweet, but not too sweet, light and whipped cream.  

    Patty's thanks for the great customer service and for the yummy cupcakes. You have won me over once again!

    Ever since I was diagnosed with Celiac disease I have been on a mission to find a really good cupcake.  Patty's Cakes fulfilled that mission!  The chocolate gluten free cupcake with chocolate frosting exceeded my expectations!  It was delicious, and the chocolate icing was the best I have ever tasted!  Thank you Patty's Cakes for giving me a little piece of gluten free heaven!!!

    If anyone knows what kind of ingredients they use for their cupcake frosting, please let me know~ do they use heavy cream, butter, confectioner's sugar, or marscapone, etc?
    I love that the frosting is firm/in place and light and fluffy at the same time. It doesnt taste like sugar nor like i'm eating butter.
    I would love to learn how to make frosting like that. C:

    Just ordered two dozen "spur-of-the-moment" assorted cupcakes for a birthday. Not only was every flavor on the menu available, but the owner, not another employee, helped me with making some awesome choices.

    As for the taste? There's a reason for the 5-star rating. Every person at the party enjoyed the cupcakes. Both adults and kids alike. My faves...either of the red velvets, lemon drop and PB&J..yum!!

    The best part is that each cupcake was frosted upon order, not earlier in the day. Which, in my humble opinion, makes for a better tasting cake. They were moist and flavorful. One might not like the little wait u endure when u order, since they frost "to order", but the free citrus water makes up for it!!

    Absolutely love this place & how local it is to me.  

    Amid all of the cupcake fuss nowadays, these are a fantastic treat & much more moist & flavorful than any of the others that i've had. No they arent as big (or as expensive) as sprinkles but they are much more delicious & well thought out.

    My personal favorite is the banana cream, made with banana cake topped with banana & filled with cream.  Yum, perfect.  

    The staff has always been friendly & helpful.  Their packaging is simple yet professional, and at just $3 each, its a cheap little treat from a local small business.

    For me, Patty's is all about the CAKE BALLS! Truly the best I've ever had.

    I prefer their adorable Easter edition ones, as those are coated with candy coating rather than a chocolate. I find cake balls coated in chocolate too much for me, so this is perfect. I brought the Easter ones to a bridal shower last year and they were a huge hit (the bride lives in San Diego and still asks me about them!).

    All flavors are delicious, but the chocolate, Confetti, Lemon, and Banana are my standouts. My boyfriend loves the Smores, and my dad can't get enough of the German Chocolate Cake. Honestly, you can't go wrong with any flavor.
    I would love for Patty's to incorporate other flavors into their cake ball rotation (Strawberry cake? Carrot cake! Yes please!!) but I can't really complain. You won't regret a bite of these amazing balls of deliciousness.

    I also used Patty's for my dad's 60th birthday party a few years ago. They made a custom-order German Chocolate Cake and a chocolate with vanilla and both received raves. Their cake is so light and moist, their frosting whipped and airy.

    As for in-store service, I've never had a problem. Every encounter has been sweet and friendly - they love it there and I'm grateful for it. I feel like a valued customer. I also appreciate their "Buy One, Get One" and other deals. Patty's is highly recommended!

    Where to begin?! Patty's cake is by far the BEST!! I cannot even begin to describe my experience with them.

    Patty's cakes made the cake for my wedding back in January. I had a beautiful 3 tiered cake with glitter, bling and 3 delicious flavors. ( If I could have picked more, believe me, I would have) Patty was so sweet, kind and accommodating. I went in a couple of weeks before my wedding to bump up the size due to an increase in guest count. Patty was nice about it and reassured me that we didn't have to go up another tier and she was right! The 3 tiers were more than enough for all the guests at my wedding.

    Now, I'm usually NOT a cake person, but if I could have that cake everyday, I WOULD! It was so perfect!!!! It was light and fluffy, and didn't have any of that fondant junk. I ate every bit of it. YUM.

    I definitely would recommend Patty's cakes to anyone who is looking for a any type of delicious desserts. They are nice, helpful, and very professional. Not to mention again, DELICIOUS! :)

    Patty's Cakes made an absolutely beautiful cake for my wedding.

    They were able to make a two tiered cake for my wedding of only 40 guests which other bakeries seemed unwilling to accommodate.
    When I visited the store to order my cake, they had photo albums available for me to get ideas from and they were more than willing to make exactly what I wanted within a budget.
    I also ordered Gluten-free cupcakes for my husband's grandmother. They were delivered with the cake and she really enjoyed being able to enjoy the dessert with everyone else.
    Of all the things I had to worry about on my wedding day, the cake was of no concern. It was beautiful, delicious, and exactly as I ordered it. (I ordered marbled cake with Bavarian cream filling--highly recommend)

    I ordered a dozen cupcakes, for teacher appreciation week, last minute and they were ready to go by the time I arrived to pick them up. (Within 10 minutes).  The teachers all loved them!  I also picked up a few for my house. The piña colada is amazing!!  The red velvet is a must, and the chocolate caramel is delicious.  These cupcakes do not disappoint.

    Loved the smore's cake ball, all except the marshmallow that was inside... had a weird consistency... and it was pretty expensive but I am also a poor college kid.
