  • Amazing desserts. My fiancé and I loved everything we tried. Every flavor was delicious! I ended up ordering one of everything for the dessert table (and I don't regret it at their prices). The cupcakes aren't too sweet and were super cute! Staff was also great. Highly recommended

  • We did a cake tasting at Crushcakes and knew we had to use them for our wedding. Their cake is so homemade tasting and delicious. They were easy to work with and the pricing was reasonable. We did a 2 tiered cake and sheet cake for the guests with multiple flavors. It turned out gorgeous and we got lots of compliments on the cake.

  • The first thing we did after getting engaged was to go cake tasting (um, priorities) and after the first bite of the few dozen or so cupcake tasters, we knew Crushcakes would be our go to. The cakes are delicious and moist and they even have some not too traditional flavors that resonated with us. Emily (and the Crushcakes staff) was incredibly helpful throughout the tasting, ordering, and the frequent change request process. And it was so affordable compared to other places we looked at! Like I'm still baffled as to why. Because for our order size for the quality (and for how much the guests LOVED it), I would have paid more. Guests were thrilled when we brought out the leftovers the next day at brunch. And it was still stupid good.

  • We had a half naked chocolate cake, that was beautiful and delicious. It was so dense and good we were still eating it 3 days later .... and it was STILL delicious.

  • Beautiful gluten free vegan cake for our wedding. My husband has a lot of food allergies so we are so grateful they offered a cake he can eat, and not to mention it was beautiful, delivered on time and they were so easy to work with!

  • For our wedding we decided we wanted a small cutting cake and cupcakes. We tried a few cupcake places in the Santa Barbara area and Crushcakes was far and away the best. Their cupcakes were moist and not overly sweet and they offered some fun flavors. I will admit that the cutting cake was a little overly dense and the icing too sweet for us, but the cupcakes were delish (we got lots of good feedback about them from our guests). And the cutting cake looked super cute. They were also totally delightful to work with while planning and very quick to respond to everything.

  • HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! THIS PLACE IS SO AMAZINGLY GOOD! We had tried Crushcakes on our own when we were in town. Conveniently, it is just a few blocks from our venue. We decided to book with them, and we couldn't have been more pleased with how everything turned out. We got a great mix of mini cupcakes and cookies. The hardest part was that there were almost too many delicious options to choose from for our small wedding cake! Working with Emily was a dream. She was so organized and prepared for the tasting and was flexible when we wanted to make a few changes closer to the wedding. Our guests had nothing but good things to say about the quality and variety we had at our mini cupcake bar. On top of all the deliciousness, their prices are SO reasonable! We were able to get more than we had seen at other places with our budget.

  • Everything was perfect from working with Emily upfront to - omg the cake. I had many people tell me it was the best they’ve ever had, including some people who said they didn’t like cake who loved it. We had some left over and invited friends and family over the next day to finish it off. With no wedding planner I had to trust it would show up on time with flowers added and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. It showed up on time looking gorgeous. Thanks for everything Emily!!

  • We ordered cupcakes and cake pops with Crushcakes for our wedding. We had tried their desserts at many occasions and liked them very much. We first visited the store who referred us to Emily their Wedding & Event Coordinator. Getting a hold of her made our experience stressful. It took days even weeks before she returned any of our phone calls or emails. We had to chase her down at multiple occasions. This is clearly something undesirable when planning an event of that size. Our cupcakes and cake pops ended up being exactly the way we wanted, but left a bittersweet impression on us considering the amount of time we spent getting in touch with Emily. If you are considering dealing with Crushcakes, arm yourselves with lots of patience!

  • I am so beyond disappointed in my experience with Crushcakes. After my tasting and consultation Crushcakes assured me they would be able to make me a three tier cake with a white and grey marble design with silver leaf. The cake ended up being deformed, baby blue(no idea why the cake turned out blue when I requested white and grey), and had no silver leaf but instead silver glitter splattered on it. My guests were laughing at how awful it looked and I was in tears over it. I was so excited to have the cake of my dreams and had the complete opposite. Crushcakes gave me a 95$ refund and a 50$ gift card to their store. However, considering the cake(which was over $400) was the completely wrong color, falling apart, had glitter on it, and had barely any marbling on it I think a larger refund would have been appropriate. Attached are the pictures I showed Crushcakes of how I wanted my cake to look and the pictures of what my cake ended up looking like. I’m still so sad I will never get t... Read more

  • I was pretty happy with my experience with Crushcakes. Emily was a joy to work with. The cake was very, very beautiful! My two complaints are that (1) the topper I provided (and informed Crushcakes of in advance) was not put on top of the cake. It was in the same box as the cake stand I provide. And (2) the vegan cake was way too sweet, in my opinion. I thought the cake was beautiful, but I think the recipe should be workshopped a bit. To be fair, my dad said he liked it, and he's not vegan.
