Had to order two dozen cupcakes for work a couple days ago and couldn't help but order a cake ball while I waited for them to prepare my order, and I'm so glad I did.
Before I headed back to Los Angeles, I knew I had to stop by again to pick up some for my roommates! Can't wait to try the pumpkin cake ball! I highly recommend this place because the food is amazing, everyone is super friendly and it's a cute little shop that I will surely visit again next time I'm in the area!!
Outstanding cupcakes. Also, full line of gluten free.
Patty's has figured out how to make a wide array of wonderful and interesting flavors. The people who work here treat every customer like family. Try it once - you'll be back for more!
I called in desperate need of a birthday cake and they were willing to work with my time frame and wants for the birthday cake. And many enjoyed the presentation and taste of the cake. So thumbs up for service and accommodation and taste.
When I went to pick up my cake, I checked into yelp which states 1 free cupcake or cake ball... So I was super stoked, but apparently it's buy 3 get 1 free. Out of everything I really enjoyed the red velvet and Elvis. Both just melt in your mouth and had the perfect texture.
Besides the cupcakes, I got the smores cake ball and it was so delicious! Sweet overload... In a good way.
It was a week ago 10/20/14 that I walked into Patty's Cakes with the intention of getting a Birthday cake for my wife that would have a *wow* factor. I've read all the reviews and looked at all the pictures on Yelp for Patty's cakes and I have to say I was impressed. I walked into the bakery and instantly the reality show *Cake Boss* went through my mind. That's right I was going in for a *cake consultation* not with Buddy Valastro of *Cake Boss* but with Kori of Patty's Cakes. I was at a loss for words; I didn't know there was so many factors that go into a cake. Round, square, fancy, plain, quarter sheet, half sheet, butter cream, ganache. The list goes on and on. Thankfully Kori helped me to navigate through all the * cake lingo*. Basic questions that Kori asked me: how many people is it going to serve? 8-10 people, what's your wife's favorite cake?Red velvet
What cartoon character or what is she interested in? Hello Kitty. After the basics were established we went onto the good ol internet to select a Hello Kitty image that would represent Halloween and birthday. It seemed like I spent an eternity at Pattys cake that day trying to pick out the perfect hello kitty image. Throughout the whole time, Kori was very patient and very understanding to a cake *newbie* like myself. In the end it was all worth it to see the reaction my wife and her coworkers had when her cake was revealed to her today on her B Day. Thank You so Much Kori and Pattys cakes for making this day memorable.
Went here for cake testing! Good cake, great service. They don't use fondant because they want the cake to taste fabulous and it does. This place truly is great! Affordable & fancy! Definitely recommend it!!
Having tried the delicious cupcakes here before and hearing reviews from friends about their wedding cakes we knew we had to get our wedding cake here. We met with Phillip for the tasting and made our decision. I went in with a few different photos and we took a few ideas from different images and created our own design. On the big day everyone raved about the cake. We took the top tier home but had to leave on our honeymoon the next day so we decided to freeze it. Two weeks later we came back and finally got to eat our cake, which still tasted amazing! We look forward to visiting the shop for our cupcake fix.
I got four cupcakes for my first visit. Two vanilla with chocolate icing (my favorite) which I almost ate one on the car ride home but waited to eat it when I got home. My husband loved the red velvet and half of the second vanilla with chocolate icing. We will share the lemon drop tomorrow. They are amazing! Can't wait to try others. Thanks.
This review is long overdue.. we had the pleasure of having our wedding cake done by Patty's Cakes on 08/31/14.. From the moment we walked in for our consultation.. through our consultation appointment and a couple of meetings after, Phillip and Patty were a pleasure to work with. They were very professional and listened to everything that we had in mind when it came to our wedding cake. But the best part was how DELICIOUS their cakes are!! (we had a combination of red velvet, lemon with raspberry & bavarian custard, and banana with peanut butter) We had gone to other highly recommended bakeries in the area, but none of their cakes came close to being as tasty, fresh and super moist/ melt in your mouth type cake we got from Patty's Cakes! Patty and Phillip really work with you to bring your wedding cake vision to reality.. being huge baseball fans, we ordered custom made bobbleheads as our cake topper. We were slightly concerned that due to the weight, it might not be able to work out as our cake topper after all.. but Patty and Phillip made it work! We couldn't be happier with our whole experience and most of all with how delicious our wedding cake was!
The BEST Cake Balls in the history of forever. So moist and delicious. My favorite is the funfetti, next the lemon! Anything you get will be the best you have ever had. They have great email deals so join their email list and get yourself some amazing Patty's Cakes!
My first order from Patty's Cakes was in Nov 2010 when I ordered cupcakes for Thanksgiving at my house. Not only were the cupcakes pretty to look at and fit in perfectly with my fall decor, they tasted amazing! I also ordered some of their famous cake balls and I have to say that I am in LOVE with the Chocolate Banana and S'mores. They are little pieces of heaven in my mouth.
We're coming up on 4 years of being loyal customers simply because their cakes, cupcakes and cake balls are the BEST!
Thanks Patty's Cakes for making my tastebuds and belly happy!
This place is still #1 for birthday cakes to cupcakes around the whole LA & OC area. I've been to places that were featured competitors on cupcake wars and still they are close but still far from what you experience at this amazing shop!!! Cake balls are so good too!
Only thing I hate is that prices not just here but almost every cupcake joint has a price tag of $3 to $5 a cupcake. Why is that?!? Oh well this place can take my money because my tastebuds know that when it comes to flavor, moisture, texture, taste, & service, I will not be disappointed!!! =)
I tried the Red Velvet cupcake.
It was very moist and the cream was very creamy. Good large sized cupcake for the price.
But, the cake did not have much flavor and neither did the cream.
I'm willing to give them another try, but thus far, I like Cupcake Blake in Fullerton and My Delight Cupcakery in Ontario better.
We got married in September and when it came to the cake I had one concern...it was YUM! I found Patty's Cakes through the knot website and I realized it was super close. We decided to check it out and one bite and we were sold! The cakes are delicious and the staff is super nice. They are honest about their product and tell you up front...their concern is how it tastes! Our cake was completely gone by the end of the night and we had a 4 tier cake! I highly recommend Patty's Cakes if you want your guest to actually eat the cake and possibly even go for seconds! For how good the cake is the cost is not bad, I priced several surrounding bakeries and they had one of the most competitive prices!
We searched for a place that could cater to our dietary needs for our wedding. We decided it would be a good idea to look locally and support smaller local businesses. We had heard about Patty's cakes through our neighbor. We couldn't get any more local than Patty's. Patty was really helpful and accommodating. We were able to get gluten free AND use the egg substitute, which is apparently not a popular request, but she did it for us. We were really happy with the cake and the personal attention we got from her. It was a hit and it was beautiful. She gave us a lot of options to fit our budget. All we had to bring her was the flowers we wanted to use on the cake and she handled the rest. We would recommend Patty's Cakes to anyone looking for a wedding cake, or just to stop in and get a cupcake or twenty. Thanks Patty!
I can not give Patty's Cakes a high enough rating. They are a 10 out of 5 as far as I'm concerned. You simply will not be able to find a better tasting cake anywhere... seriously. I have been to more weddings than I would like to count before my own and I have never been able to finish the cake! It was either too dry or the frosting was too much, too rich, or too ... fondant. But this cake.. THIS CAKE... oh my goodness, wow! Not only was it delicious but it was beautiful too!
Those of our guests we have spoken to after the wedding have gone on and on about how they loved the cake and wanted to know where we got it! They just could not believe how good this "wedding" cake was! We of course, have let them know where we got it and that they could stop in for a cupcake if they are having withdrawals... as we have done! :-)
The last time I wrote a review for Patty's was 2011 so I figured it's about time I write an update. This place still has yet to disappoint! I have been to Patty's multiple times over the last three years for cupcakes, cake balls and custom cake orders. I have worked with Philip and Bethany on multiple occasions, both of which are incredibly pleasant. The only time Patty's was unavailable to take an order for me was my son's 4th birthday, which was really my fault considering I tried to order the cake two weeks in advance of the party. My tips - 1) place your custom cake order at least 4-6 weeks in advance because Patty's is just that popular! 2) Bring a copy of your party invitation and give it to Patty. I have given artistic freedom to Patty for every one of my cakes based on the invitation I gave her and she has NEVER disappointed!
My mother-in-law and I just placed another custom cake order this morning for my baby shower in 6 weeks. As always, the place was crowded but our customer service was incredible. My son even got his 2 cake balls and of course, he was absolutely in love! Thank you, Patty's!
Yelp 2014 Challenge #52/100
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~

Ordered my baby shower cake from here: It was marble cake with custard filling and fresh bananas. EVERYONE loved it! The cake not only looked awesome, but tasted AMAZING! Will be coming to them again for sure!
These cupcakes are thoughtfully created and absolutely delicious! A friend was going because he wanted to take his lady somewhere fun that night so I asked him to snag me a quartet to bring to work the next day.
The eclair cupcake is amazing... even the next day, the frosting was smooth and tasty... not too sweet. The cake itself was moist and fluffy with a cream center that balanced beautifully with the other components of the entire cupcake.
I'm not a red velvet fan, but others said that the frosting was one of the best they ever had and the cake was well balanced.
I didn't expect the Elvis cupcake to be all that good but my coworker was so enamored of it, that I had to take a bite. The flavors balanced well, with the specific flavors concentrated on each component of the cupcake; banana cake was light and flavored well, peanut butter mousse frosting was so tasty and the bacon bits on top were delightful!
Overall, delicious, beautifully presented and priced appropriately.
First time I have ever been in the store. Don't be fooled by it's outside appearance! The staff were friendly and the cupcakes were amazing! Everything was so fresh and perfectly balanced. Can't wait to go back and try more flavors! I would give them a 4.5 if I could.
I purchased my wedding cake from here and it was just as delicious as it was beautiful! Thank you Patty's cakes!!
Our favorite so far is the Neopolitan and Red Velvet.
I do have one gripe with their customer service. One day we called about 10 minutes before closing letting them know we were 10 away from arriving per the GPS and they said they couldn't guarantee they would still be open, what's up with that?
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.
Ok So this is my 3rd review on Pattys Cakes... Third's a charm :) So after my horrible experience last year, the owner sent me a genuine message apologizing and offering credit for the amt of my order, unfortunately for me, I didn't see the message until about 6 months later!! Luckily, the owner was kind enough to keep his word and I had some PRETTY and DELICIOUS lemon and banana cupcakes for a fathers day BBQ :) The lemon was super moist & delicious, the banana ones were just like I had remembered them the very time time I tried time..HEAVEN in my mouth!! Thanks to Phil and the great staff at Pattys for making up the bad experience I had and turning it all around. I will keep coming back as long as the cupcakes and cake balls stay as amazing as they are :)
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.
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.
Absolutely to die for!! I love cupcakes but hates anything overly too sweet. Got a dozen for my girls bday of 10 different flavors and everybody fell in love with them! Not only that all employees were super sweet and accommodating!!
-cupcakes will melt in your mouth
-chocolate and chocolate mousse=heaven
-all flavors of mousse had the perfect texture, sugar and flavor
-chocolate with peanut butter was awesome didn't think I would be a fan
-lemon razzle was awesome
-lemon drop yummy
-mint chocolate chip was perfect
-red velvet with cream cheese yummy
-plain white with vanilla filling yummy
-lemon cake pina colada was uniquely delicious
Gotta try it becuz u will love it!
Hands down my favorite dessert place in oc/la area! The cake balls are my favorite!! Favorite flavors are the red velvet and smores! And the employees are so nice and helpful! Hopefully I can get my wedding cake done here!! Fingers crossed!!!
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!
I've driven by dozens of times and finally stopped in to check it out. I was expecting to see rows and rows of cupcakes but instead some small, ball-shaped cakes are displayed, some wedding cakes and shelves of decorative items. The sales lady showed me how to order (from a large menu on the wall behind the counter). There are many choices but my favorite flavor (from another cupcake place) wasn't on the menu. I asked the sales lady, " Do you have something similar to a Strawberry Lemonade flavor?" She could have just politely said "no sorry we don't". Instead, to my surprise, she said " We can make something like that for you!" I said, "Right now?" she said "Yes!". I'm very happy because I'm sure she isn't the owner here, she didn't have to do this, but she went beyond her way just trying to accommodate the customer. For this alone, I'd give the place a "yay!
The reason I give 4 stars is because the decorations on the cupcakes can be a little more attractive, creative, colorful...etc. All the cream is piped the same way with a little sugar sprinkles on top. I've had much more creatively decorated ones, so it's a little boring here. Another reason is that, the cupcakes, although very fresh, has just a little too much cream. The cream is very light, but it's almost 2 inches tall, so it feels like toppling over from the cupcake (heavier top than bottom). It's true that I'd rather have more cream than not enough, but still, I had to remove a little cream for the balance in tastes otherwise it's an overkill for me.
I will definitely return though when I drive by in the future. They are the freshest cupcakes I've ever had by no means.
We had cupcakes 4 dozen and we were able to do sets of 6 in different flavors the cupcakes finished faster than the cake!!!! The cake was beautiful
Will be a life time customer to patys cakes!!!
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.
Had our wedding cake made here. All of the staff was very helpful in walking us through the process, even though our cake wasn't too big or too intricate. Patty herself went above and beyond with her customer service, making you feel welcome, and her artistic abilities. The cake was moist and delicious! It was a big hit. Would recommend going here to anyone looking for a cake for any occasion! They also delivered our cake to the corresponding restaurant that we had picked out. They were on time and set it all up for us!! Thanks again!
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.
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!
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 !!!
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!!!
I tried the red velvet with "cream cheese" frosting and the mint chocolate chip. Cream cheese frosting? Tasted more like the cheap frosting they sell at Von's. Both cupcakes were mediocre. Tasted like cupcake from a box. Nothing special.
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!
Love this place. :) Cupcakes are moist, delicious, and not overly sweet. The cake balls are amazing also! I've tried numerous flavors of both and have yet to be disappointed. I've tried cupcakes from other well known bakeries in the area, and these are definitely at the top of my list.
