  • Excellent communication! The staff was very easy to work with. They met with my parents, mother-in-law, fiancé and myself to do a cake tasting. Everything was so yummy! We ended up selecting the Boston Cream flavor. It was a hit at our wedding! The details were exactly what I pictured. I wanted flowers on the cake, and that was executed perfectly by our florist. The cake was delivered on time. It was the perfect addition to our wedding. I recommend the bakery!

  • We went with Freedom Bakery for our wedding cake and desserts and could not be happier! The cake we had was not only beautiful but tasted amazing. We are from out of state so when visiting for other wedding related tasks,we contacted Freedom Bakery to see if they were available that week to possibly talk and they fit us in for a tasting that afternoon! We went with a raspberry amaretto cake with buttercream frosting and everyone adored it, and they offered a wide range of varieties for style of cake. Later on we decided to incorporate a cookie table to the reception for dessert and they were able to provide many different types of shortbread cookies with no problem! Thank you so much Freedom Bakery!

  • Freedom Bakery was wonderful!! The tasting was fun & stress free, everyone was very helpful & accommodating, and, most importantly, the cake was delicious! We didn't want anything too fancy, anything fondant, or anything too sweet. Freedom crushed it. They were on time with delivery, put on our own provided cake topper for us, and left a box so that transfer home was easy. They were reasonably priced as well, so I fully recommend them!

  • Paul and his team at Freedom were absolutely amazing. We still have guests raving about the desserts! Instead of a traditional cake, we did a small cutting cake and a dessert display, and everyone loved it! The set up was gorgeous, the quality excellent, and the service was top notch.

  • Our wedding cake was so good! And it looked pretty too! We are so happy we went with Paul and Freedom Bakery & Confections. It was so easy to work with Paul. We had a ton of questions and he took the time to answer them all without getting short or irritated. Highly recommend Freedom Bakery & Confections!

  • Freedom Bakery provided the cake for our wedding in Carmel/Monterey on 8/26/17. We were familiar with Freedom Bakery’s cakes from other family parties and weddings, so we didn’t think twice about choosing them for our wedding. Their cakes look great AND taste great, and we were very pleased with their customer service and responsiveness. We’ll definitely continue to use Freedom Bakery for our events.

  • We used Freedom Bakery for our wedding cake. The whole process from start to finish (tasting to delivery) was flawless and easy! It was the most amazing wedding cake ever! We read online that you should only order cake for 75% of your guests because most people won't eat it, but we'd already ordered for the full 150. So we got a bunch of boxes so people could take a piece home if they wanted. NONE of those boxes were used. That entire cake was eaten. Everyone raved about it and everyone told us how amazingly delicious it was. The owner of the venue also said that when they were scraping the plates they noticed how clean the cake plates were from people licking the plate clean!

  • Paul is incredible! From the moment we communicated to delivery he was so awesome. My family and I loved the cake tasting! I never knew wedding cakes can taste that good! It took us a while to even come to the conclusion of what flavor we wanted because everything was so so good! At the end we went for raspberry amaretto cake and everyone loved it! On the day of I was happy that the cake came out to look exactly how we wanted it to. Thanks again Paul!

  • My husband and I got married on August 12, 2017. We got married at the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Freedom Bakery was the preferred bakery. Before planning on getting married in Monterey, we tasted with another bakery. It costs us too much money to taste wedding cakes. However, Freedom Bakery's cake tasting was free. This was the best! We were able to pick up the cake tasting while we were staying in Monterey. Come on, a platter full of slices of cake, Amazing! We chose a two tier cake with the bottom cake everyone could enjoy and the top tier we enjoyed ourselves. We loved the cake so much! We are going to get our cake for our one year anniversary as well. Attached are some photos of our cake!

  • The desserts were beautiful and so was the cake- just like we ordered it! A little pricey, but delicious cake and were pre-approved at Holman ranch.

  • We were really daunted by the wedding cake industry. We wanted a delicious cake, but knew that we had to prioritize other items before our cake for the budget we had. Paul was a dream to work with: he was responsive and very open to helping us. We ended up going with an 8" decorative cake and a sheet cake for our guests. When we found out that a sheet cake usually only has 2 layers versus the typical 4 layers for a wedding cake, we were okay with that. But to our surprise, Paul ended up making us a 4 layer sheet cake, which was so generous! Our guests raved about the Mocha Chocolate Ganache cake, which made us so happy. We just didn't want to spend money on a cake that no one would eat. We just wish that we lived closer to Watsonville to make Freedom Bakery our 'go to' spot for celebratory cakes.

  • My one regret about my wedding is that I had a few bites of cake, got busy seeing guests, wanted more later, and discovered the entire cake had been devoured. No left overs. Not a crumb... I'm sad, but Freedom Bakery should take it as a compliment! They made the best wedding cake I have ever had and a number of guests said the same, so I can't be exaggerating. It is dense and delicious and the flavor combos are tantalizing (we had chocolate cake with coffee latte filling in two layers and raspberry amaretto in a third). They easily accommodated our semi-naked design and allowed us to do the floral decorating ourselves. The tasting, hosted by Paul, was informative (and delicious) and really helped us understand how cake is made and what would work best for us (even down to where it would be on display and whether ice packs might be needed on a warm day). Ordering and communications were smooth and reliable, totally online. I didn't even see them deliver the cake the day-of... it magical... Read more

  • Freedom Bakery & Confections provided a cake that was delicious, beautiful, and exactly what we'd requested. They were able to do this in spite of the fact that we were a little late starting the planning process. As a result of our last minute planning, they had some constraints around the date we'd selected. But, they were very professional about immediately letting us know what they could and couldn't do for that date so that we could make an informed decision. With regard to the cake itself, we chose a design from their extensive gallery. Their tasting samples were excellent, making the choice of a single type of cake rather difficult. However, once we'd made our decisions, the wedding cake we received met our expectations for both design and flavor, and it was highly complimented by our guests.
