  • We went with layers because we wanted just a simple cake that tasted amazing and that is just what they gave to us.

  • Hilary was amazing to work with. She was patient with me when I kept giving her the wrong card for her payments [on accident ]. One of the hardest parts for my wedding was figuring out where to put my cake. My wedding site wouldn't keep my cake due to liability concerns. She personally got in contact with my wedding site to make sure they would keep my cake!

  • I chose Layers to do my wedding cake and could not be happier! Hilary and Hazel were so amazing to work with. They were very responsive and made the whole process super easy! We chose the carrot cake and our guests loved it! We also got chocolate cupcakes for our more picky guests and those were a hit as well. Our cake was amazing and delicious. So delicious, that we couldn't bring ourselves to save the top in the freezer for our one year anniversary! We are so happy we chose Layers!

  • Layers was wonderful to work with! They were able to accommodate three different flavors for our cake and beautifully replicated the unique design we found online. Delivery was on time and all staff were professional and communicative. I would highly recommend that anyone in the Monterey area use layers for their cake!

  • We loved our wedding cake! The team at Layers Sensational Cakes was easy to work with and extremely responsive. Our cake (white cake with raspberry filling, French Buttercream frosting) not only looked beautiful, but it was the most delicious cake I have ever had.

  • I knew when I decided I was having a wedding cake that it had to be from Layers because their cakes are just the best. Initially when I contacted them, they said they couldn’t do it the week before christmas because they were so busy, but Hilary talked to the chef and some kind of magic happened because they agreed to do it. I got my gorgeous spooned French butter cream Princess cake (with gorgeously arranged flowers) delivered to my venue the morning of my wedding and it was as delicious as ever! My husband and I ate the top tier for christmas! Thank you so much!

  • Oh my freaking god, I can’t say enough about this bakery! My wedding was in September, and we asked Layer’s for a two tiered cake for a small wedding. We did the lemon butter cake for the largest layer, and ended up saving the blueberry cream cake topper (we ordered more than we needed to, just because we wanted the look of a two tiered cake). Both cakes were easily the best wedding cake I’ve eaten. I preferred the lemon but they were both incredible. The cake was not only delicious, but it was also beautiful. Hazel and Hillary were so helpful and easy to work with! They answered a lot of my questions and were generally just great. I definitely recommend Layers! They won’t disappoint.

  • We loved our wedding cake made by Layers! It was delicious and the design came out just as we hoped. Hilary and Hazel were professional and responsive and the cake arrived on time. We also ordered some additional treats from their bakery for our dessert table which were also beautiful and tasty. Highly recommend!

  • Holy cow, the cake Hilary at Layers made for our wedding. It was SO INCREDIBLE. I mean, just amazing. My husband is a designer and made a 3 page design document to describe how we wanted the cake to work. They were very happy to work with this, offering very good advice on how to balance what we wanted for taste (buttercream was a must, fondant tastes awful no matter who makes it) in order to achieve the look and taste we were looking at. Hilary did a spectacular job. Not only did the cake look amazing, it was literally some of the best cake I have ever eaten in my entire life. And I assure you, none of the other cakes on the short list of My Best Cakes were wedding cakes, which in my anecdotal experience, usually tastes not that great. NOT this cake, it was FANTASTIC both inside and out. I've seen the negative reviews here but I have to say that this was not my experience at all. Communication was professional, prompt, and thorough. The result was fantastic looking, fantastically deli... Read more

  • We absolutely loved our wedding cake from Layers!! The cake tasted delicious, and I love how they use high-quality ingredients. We had a custom (ocean-themed) design that turned out amazing! We had so many compliments on our cake, from the design to the taste! We worked with Hilary and she was awesome!

  • This bakery was on several of our preferred vendor lists (for our wedding), so we contacted them for a tasting. Instead of sitting down for a tasting, they offer a "tasting box" for $15...ok, that's fine. We picked up our tasting box on a Saturday and took it back to our hotel room. We were SUPER excited to taste all of the different flavors. We got to our hotel room (after driving 30 minutes from the bakery) and immediately dug into the pieces of cake. They were absolutely terrible! They had clearly been frozen for several days and even tasted like freezer. They were soggy in the middle (not moist like yummy cake is) and the frosting was ridiculously thick. We called the bakery to let them know (just to make sure that we weren't crazy), and they basically said that we could come by to get a new tasting box. What difference is a new box going to make? They are obviously all made super far in advance, put in the freezer, and then somewhat thawed out before being picked up. The staff of ... Read more

  • We received EXACTLY what we wanted for our Garden Patio wedding cake! We wanted something delightful yet not too elegant since we had a beach with slight bohemian style wedding. We sent the bakery a picture of what we wanted and they designed it exactly to what we wanted. Our top layer was Death by Chocolate and the bottom layer was Tiramisu. We didn't have a tasting because it was a destination wedding so we just went with our intuition but the cake turned out to be very moist and delicious. For the most part, the bakery was very responsive to our emails and phone calls when it came to order our cake but towards the end I believe there was some miscommunication and they delivered the cake to the reception without the decorations on the cake. We set it up so the flower decorations could arrive to the bakery the day before but they delivered the cake before the flowers even got there.

  • Layers Sensational Cakes created our weddings cakes and they were absolutely delectable. We worked with Hilary and Hazel for our big day desserts and they walked us through each delicious step. The end result was a beautiful three tier gold banded lemon cake and a sheet carrot cake. Our guests clearly loved them both because there was not a slice in sight at the end of the night!
