“There is no place better than this!!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

As soon as I got to Los Gatos, I ran to Icing on the Cake. They have expanded their beautiful shop and it's even nicer than before (and that was pretty nice!!). Their cakes and cupcakes are just spectacular; light and airy and sinfully delicious! My favorite is the Red Velvet cupcake. I ate a whole one in two bites!!! I hadn't had one in over a year and this was my treat and welcome home (for a visit). If you love the best cakes in the world, come here!

“OMG !!!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

A friend brought a box of their cookies and every one was absolutely wonderful. I have enjoyed their cakes too. We had a retirement lunch for my sister and they did such a wonderful job designing a cake with a Paris theme.

Hello Orlando,

Thank you so much for your great review. We offer so many cookies, happy to hear you had a nice sampling. They are as popular as our cakes. Thank you for including us in your sister's celebration, too. Your review made our day!

“Excellent cupcakes, great & friendly staff, and yummy desserts”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

My fiancé and I love this place. We go here for the cupcakes. We have tried cupcakes from several different places and we always seem to come back here. We have had our share of low quality cupcakes and I just rather spend my money on something I know I would enjoy- something that is good! Sometimes we drive up to Los Gatos from Morgan Hill just to eat one of these delicious cupcakes. We have yet to find another place that compares to this place.

ANYTHING you buy from this bakery will be heaven in your mouth (at least that has always been my experience.)

“Best cakes in the Bay Area”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

I have always been pleased with the quality & presentation of the cakes baked here. They are moist, very dense and packed with flavor. Our favorites are the banana cake with cream cheese frosting, and the peanut butter cake with dark chocolate frosting.

Hi Flowerfun!

Thank you so much for your fantastic review of the bakery, it really made our day! Yes, our cakes are dense and moist, most are made with brown sugar, butter and buttermilk. It makes such a huge difference! I happen to love our peanut butter cake and many aren't familiar with it. Thanks for mentioning it and thanks again for visiting. We hope you'll return soon to see what else we have that might hit the spot.

Happy Holidays,
Lynn
