  • WOW! WOW isn't even an appropriate word- I am not sure what is! OUR CAKE WAS AMAZING! We had a 3-tier, white cake with rasberry and bavarian cream, covered in white chocolate fondant, white chocolate seashells, and edible pearls. It was extraordinary. Darlene customized it and designed it with us. The cake was delicious beyond comparison. I expected it to be good, but I was beyond pleased with it. I was asked by everyone there, "Who did your cake?" David and I both looked at each other when we took our first bites and said "WOW!"... then, later that night, we ate a slice of our top tier. There was no way we could wait a whole year to have another piece of it! Darlene, if you read this- Thank you so much! We loved it, loved it, loved it! :)

  • Darlene and Hannu do amazing things with pastries and cakes. I was blessed to have their cake at our wedding, because they packed it perfectly and my parents and sister drove it from Lake Forest to Las Vegas, where we got married. It was such a treat, because it was custom made, just for us and our wedding. It was beautiful, exactly what we wanted, but it was also DELICIOUS. I wanted a very small cake, but they managed to pack two decadent flavors into two layers, and there was absolutely none left. It was perfect and a big hit, and I highly recommend their services.

  • Our wedding cake came out beautiful. The color swatch that gave to Darlene was the exact match of the color of ribbon they made. I received many complements on how the cake looked and tasted. I would most definitely recommend Black Forest Cafe for wedding cakes.

  • No wonder our hotel/caterer recommended Black Forest Bakery & Cafe to do our wedding cake. Darlene is as lovely and sweet as the cakes she makes! We enjoyed our experience with them from the cake tasting to having our first slice as husband and wife at our reception. The cakes are light and the fillings are creamy and yummy!

  • The Black Forest Bakery has been around since I was a girl. I'd go visit the bakery with my sister to pick up breakfast goodies. I was delighted to be able to have my uncle order our cake from there for our wedding at the Coto de Caza Golf and Raquet Club. If you visit the store, the cakes are even more beautiful than those depicted on the website. The level of creativity and refinedness... it's A+. We used their online samples to figure out what we wanted and asked for a hybrid of two styles. It was beautiful and so delicious. The chocolate cake was moist and the raspberry filling made my husband so happy. I recommend them to anyone! From what my uncle told me, they were very flexible and helpful. I'm not sure about the cost of the cake since it was his gift to us.
