- Victoria and her staff were absolutely wonderful for our wedding. The cake was exactly as we had envisioned it and they went above and beyond for the look of the cake. Their buttercream icing is to die for and we are so excited that they opened a bakery right near our home – evaqtpye, WeddingWire
- …they have such delicious cakes and desserts that you would have to roll me out if I indulged as often as I'd like. Their cakes are wonderful! Awhile ago, my husband brought me a chocolate ganache cake for my birthday and it was heaven. – Linda C., Yelp
Cakes by Happy Eatery
The story of Cakes by Happy Eatery begins with a family who appreciates good food. Today, sisters and second-generation owners Victoria and Emily Wu continue to uphold the bakery's classic baking traditions while giving it a modern twist. It's here where a team of dedicated bakers and pastry chefs spend their days whipping up a staggering selection of pastries, cakes, and desserts. The baking gurus excel at showcasing both sweet and savory flavors; Chinese-style roast pork buns, hand-held chicken pot pies, and chicken salad sandwiches with seasonal champagne grapes rank among their most popular items. The bakery is best known, however, for its European genoise sponge cake, a light, never-cloying style of cake exuding a blend of signature sweetness. While Cakes by Happy Eatery prides itself on making old-fashioned creations using only real butter and sugar, those with restrictive diets will also find vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free delights.
