    About a month ago, I went out to Hawaii to plan my wedding. I only had one week! Several people had recommended Mary Catherine's Bakery to us, so we didn't plan on setting appointments with any other bakeries. Well, we went, tried cakes, and we were not impressed. The filling was basically whip cream with a few pieces of fruit thrown in. I love Lilikoi, but I want something that, when you eat the cake, you really taste it. Can anyone recommend a bakery? Or does anyone know of any other bakeries to avoid as well?

    Thanks!!

      I actually ordered my wedding cake from Mary Catherine's. My photog was the one who made the suggestion telling me that although the cake was not the best, it's not the worst and they have nice designs for a decent price...and every wedding he's done, guaranteed no one remembers the taste of the cake!

      My sister(who lives there) went to try it out and said their chocolate cake was not good but their fruit flavored ones were awesome so we wound up going with that.
      Small two-tier feeds 30 people came out to be about 200 after tax and delivery charge.
      I'll let you know how it was when I get back!

        Thank you very much - I really appreciate it! Unfortunately, I can't taste a cake online, so any feedback is awesome!

          the cake was great!
          Mary Catherine's designed it to the exact detail that I wanted! it was sweet as all wedding cakes tend to be but really fresh and the passion fruit flavor was a nice twist to what people were expecting...but as I predicted, no one really remembers the cake after the fact (i asked my guests opinions again the next day what they thought of the flavor and received blank faces) but EVERYONE remembered how great it looked..hope this review helps!

            check out "cake lava" website...

            They make really creative one of a kind type stuff. Very original.

              You can also try Tiers of Joy I hear their cakes are great. I am still trying to decide on a cake as well and we havent tasted any on the island!

                The Sweet Stop in Kailua makes cakes to die for. They taste and look awesome. I'm not sure of the pricing because I've only tasted these cakes at a friend's wedding and a birthday party - all I can say is that the taste was amazing and they do all sorts of tropical (lilikoi, haupia) and the normal flavors.

                Good luck,
                Anne
