  • Wow!!! We got married at the Westin SF and chose to go with Susan @ Elegant Cheese Cakes and boy did we make the right choice. From the minute we sat down in the cute Half Moon Bay shop until cutting into the glorious and beautiful cake, the whole experience of working with Susan was spectacular. We went with the flight of cake and it all tasted perfect. I don't know why anyone would want to use anyone else. The design?!?! She captured everything my wife and I wanted, which was simple and elegant but unique. She nailed it! Our guests are still talking about the cake 4 months later!! Bravo to Elegant Cheese Cakes at being masters of your craft!

  • We were married last year and had the pleasure of enlisting the services of Elegant Cheesecakes and Susan Morgan for our wedding cake. We knew we wanted a 3-tier cheesecake but to our surprise, we found this almost impossible in the Bay Area. We couldn't find anyone who worked with Cheesecake for wedding arrangements, until we found Susan! She listened to our initial idea, she made even better suggestions that we took to heart, and helped us create our dream cake at a reasonable price. As any married couple knows, you have little time to eat at your own wedding. Our caterer made us a plate of cake to have in our room at the end of the night, and OH MY GOD, it was the best cheesecake we have ever had. I kid you not, my wife and I exclusively order nothing but Cheesecake when we go out, and this was like nothing we have ever had. It was so soft, rich in all the right ways, and light at the same time. We had a personal cake she made us to keep and that only lasted for the night... Read more

    Thanks for the kind words!!! It's rare these days to have clients who only want cheesecake. We generally do our traditional cake flights which is killer! Whatever you may select, our cakes are the finest!

  • Susan is so creative and fun to work with! We got to sample so many different cheesecakes and cakes during our first visit, it was hard to narrow down our favorites and a really fun experience in her shop in Half Moon Bay! She is extremely talented and I highly recommend using her for your any dessert or treat needs! She made us a fabulous cake for our wedding and brought my vision to life! The flight cake itself was a total showstopper! People are still asking me about the cake and how we were able to get all these flavors in one slice :) She gave us a lovely take home cake that was shaped like a present that included different flavors of the wedding cake, that was a special treat on top of everything else!

  • Thank you Susan, at Elegant Cheese Cakes, for your part in helping to make our wedding absolutely perfect! Our cake was just fabulous. Susan did a wonderful job of taking my vision to create the most beautiful, vintage themed wedding cake for us. The artisitic design and work on the magnolia flower that was all done by hand was exquisite. And, underneath the flawless packaging, was a cake that delivered on all points for taste....moist, fresh and flavorful, decadent! We still dream about it! Our guests all had the same feedback...best wedding cake EVER! We recommend the "flight" of flavors, but you can't go wrong with any of their flavor profiles. We are looking forward to a repeat performance....only 10 more months!!

  • We used Elegant cheesecakes for our wedding in July of 2014. Susan was absolutely amazing!! She was so patient and took the time to sketch out our cake many times to get it perfect. The cake turned out beautiful and exceeded my expectations. It tasted amazing as well and guests commented how good it was. What an amazing cake!!

  • I wish I could give Susan more than 5 stars for her beautiful design of our wedding cake. Our stacks of presents wedding cake was a 5 layer masterpiece. Guests couldn't stop taking photos of the cake and the kids were dazed by the life like golden bow trailing down the cake. The pistachio cake with strawberries was a hit with both sweet tooth fans and non dessert eaters. The candy popper name cards at the table were a tasty surprise. Guests either couldn't help but eat the chocolate filled goody with their individual names on it or took them home to savor later. Skip wedding cake vendor shopping and go directly to the best; I highly recommend Elegant Cheesecake to everyone. Even though Half Moon Bay is a trek for some, it is worth it.

  • I was married at the Oceano in May. I had an unusual idea for a cake. Susan worked with me and came up with a beautiful design. The cake was incredibly delicious. When I first saw it I couldn't believe how she created exactly what I had imagined. Everyone at my wedding was in awe! I would recommend anyone to Elegant Cheese Cakes for your special event.

  • Susan created a wonderful wedding cake for us! it was a dream cake. she spent time with us to design the cake, was very attentive to what we did and did not want. She had great ideas. The cake was delicious, moist and full of flavor. she does not use fondant that is why we went with her. She uses white chocolate. It was a little steep in price but worth every penny. we had a lot of family and friends compliment the cake. We did a flight and it looked so elegant when it was served on the plate. We had 3 wonderful flavors that we created ourselves at the tasting. we cant wait to receive our one year anniversary cake. Thank You Susan and Elegant Cheese Cakes for making our dream wedding cake a reality! Mrs. Monique Tunc

  • We had a destination wedding in Half Moon Bay and were so lucky to have an amazing wedding cake made locally. We selected a white chocolate cheesecake and chocolate chips with a hint of Irish Cream on a chocolate crust and a champagne infused white chocolate butter cake with fresh Chantilly cream and fresh raspberries. Both were amazing and our guests loved our cake!

  • Susan did an amazing job for our wedding cake. She really does use the best ingredients, and the cake was so delicious, the price is totally worth it! If you are on the edge about paying a lot of money for a cake for your wedding, I suggest just do it this once. Go for the flight (3 different layers of cake, 3 different buttercreams) and your guests will LOVE it. I figured "when will I ever get such a great cake in my life?" She did always seem busy through emails (couple word responses), which I figured probably saves her a ton of time, so don't take it personal. She is so lovely and friendly in person! We chose the flight: champagne butter fresh raspberries in chantilly...pistachio with orange sickle cream fresh strawberries...malted milk choc. cake with malted milk butter cream...

  • Tastes that ignite the senses and presentation that engages the mind and soul are the hallmarks of Susan's work. Her team was responsive and helpful and the whole experience was one that made us feel special and part of the creative process. Susan's amazing insights and knowledge combined with culinary skills that defy description but have to be tasted resulted in the most wonderful wedding cake there has ever been or will be (except, of course, for yours). Works of art are pricey. Fine food created by master chefs are too. So that's the choice: Thomas Kincaid or Michelangelo. Competent and formulaic ... or inspiring and unforgettable. On your wedding day ... there can be only one choice.

  • The cake was delicious,delicately designed. A little overpriced, but still acceptable. Communication is not perfect, but we got that cake at last.

    Sorry about pricing but fresh, good ingredients are expensive and if you consider fresh fruit it runs up the bill! We use imported chocolate paper for our detail fork and that is more delicious and taste alot better than the fondant alternative! No Fondant here at ECC! Our attention to detail is done by skilled seasoned professionals...so I guess that saying is true 'Beauty cost!' You only get married once so don't settle for less!
