  • We met Gift of Taste for the first time during a Wedding Fair at the Tower Club in Oxnard, Ca. The had several questions and they were answered but 1 questioned the baker tone changed. She seemed insulted when I brought up a question on dummy cake. We schedule appointment to come into the store at a later time. Store changed locations and it was a challenge to locate it especially when it was pouring raining. Met with the baker and she immediately informed us what is covered in our package with Wedgewood Tower Club. We were glad for that information. Also prior to the appt you have to choose 3 or 4 flavors that you want to taste during the appt and she did supply them. DELICIOUS. Cake was delivered on time on our big day and it was beautiful. Unfortunately we did not get to enjoy the cake during our big day due to mishap at the beginning of the reception so everything was rushed & unfortunately we did not keep our top layer due to the mishap. But everyone the following day and until th... Read more

  • Cris made my vision come to life. She was a pleasure to work with- super nice, understanding, great ideas on taste and combinations, and not pushy. My cake was beautiful, perfect, simple, and tasted AMAZING. We had two flavors: chocolate with peanut butter cream filling and vanilla with a champagne filling and raspberry preserves. Everyone was blown away by the flavor and the moistness of the cake. If you're looking for some yummy cake and amazing artistry, then A Gift of Taste is the choice to make!!

  • Our cake with A Gift of Taste bakery was included as part of a package with Wedgewood at Sterling Hills. Cris was wonderful in helping us choose a cake and filling, which wasn't easy planning an out of state wedding. We went with a chocolate cake with chocolate hazelnut cream filling and it was delicious! Where A Gift of Taste really shined though was in the design. We requested a board game themed cake based on a picture I found online, and they made it look amazing. If I can figure out how, I will upload a picture.

  • Not only was my cake absolutely gorgeous but it tasted great! A gift of taste is my go to for all cakes because they are moist and delicious and always look amazing. The owner Cris is a true artist and always goes above and beyond. Every family event we get a cake from A gift of taste from my parents wedding to my own and each one is more delicious than the last.

  • We went for our tasting, and they were most professional and very accommodating. They had some amazing cakes on display, and helped us create our perfect design. The flavors were AMAZING, the raspberry lemon chiffon was to die for, the sample pieces were very large generous portions. Now we can't wait for our cake at the wedding!

  • A Gift of Taste made us the most beautiful and tasty cake for our wedding on April 10! We had so many comments on how delicious the cake was and we kept the top tier for our anniversary next year! They were very professional and communicated with us on every detail of our cake. When we saw it on our wedding day we were completely impressed. I would recommend them highly to anyone in need of a wedding cake in the Ventura area!

  • First and foremost, our wedding cake was delicious, beautiful, and timely. The owner and staff were also helpful and courteous throughout. So I would definitely come here again! That said, there were some things that should have been improved, which is why I couldn't in good conscience give a five star review. We came here after booking our wedding at Wedgewood Sterling Hills. Cake wasn't included with our package, but we chose to go with the vendor they recommended first. We're still glad we did, and we're not trying to be overly critical, but we hope our experience helps others in the planning process. 1) Color: The cake we chose had hand crafted flowers on it for which we had to pay $30 extra. That fee is totally reasonable for the delicate artistry required, but what was disappointing was that we were told they could make the flowers any color we chose. We specified red fading into white. When our cake was delivered the day of our wedding, the flowers were actually orange. ... Read more

  • Making an appointment was difficult. I called back about 3 times and an email. Almost told our venue we didn't want to work with them. You had to know what kind of cakes you wanted to try for example what kind of cake,what filling, and what icing while making the appointment, but the girl told me i had to look online and call back and by the time i did the spot i was originally going to take was gone and i had to take an appointment a week or so later. when we went in for our appointment it was okay the cake tasting was..different.. not exactly what I was picturing when we went on our cake tasting excursion but the cakes were excellent. And our wedding cake turned out how we wanted. So besides the unprofessional..everything..they were good so I'd recommend them for the cakes alone.

  • A Gift of Taste created an amazing set of cakes that were original and fit the décor for our reception. We did not have a specific design in mind but they helped us come up with an original design that matched our colors and overall feel of our reception. We were very satisfied with the final product and the cakes were very tasty as well. I would recommend them highly.

  • We chose cupcakes for our wedding and decided on two flavors: White cake with Raspberry Mousse filling and Red Velvet with Cream Cheese filling/frosting. Both cupcakes were good but not as good as I expected for a "wedding cupcake" (thought it would look/taste more gourmet). We asked the cupcakes me decorated with a seashell on top of the frosting to match our beach wedding and they were able to accommodate the request. We also had a banana cream filled top layer for the cake cutting ceremony and this was very good in flavor. Several filling options aren't available when choosing cupcakes so make sure to ask or let them know if that's what you're doing.
