    Hi guys,


    I'm wondering a few things, have you guys heard of Cravings Bakery in Maui?


    Also, have you guys chosen to have square or round cakes?  I can't decide.


    Lastly, are you getting fondant or buttercream frosting?  I've never been a fan of the fondant but I know it makes it look fancier.


    Thanks in advance!

      Also wanting to know how much is typical to pay for a cake do you think?  Like how much would you pay?

        Hey Jeks,


        I ordered my wedding cake from Maui Wedding Cakes and they quoted me $495.00 for a two tier round cake that feeds about 40-50 people and has mostly buttercream but some fondant.  I thought that this was expensive, but then again it's Maui.

          We were in maui and had the opportunity to try both of the companies mentioned here. DO NOT USE MAUI WEDDING CAKES. They rubbed us the wrong way and they cakes we tried were so-so. After visiting with them we hoped we could find someone that would produce a good cake. We even thought about baking our own cake in the condo becuase we could do better. Their facility is in their home and very small. Normally I would not care about that but in this case seeing it adding to the bells going off in my head. The attitude cheryl had was shocking. If you have used her or will be I hope your experience is not like the one I had.

          Our wedding coordinator referred us to Patricia at Cravings Bakery. We were able to get in for a last minute tasting and were amazed at the facility and flavor. She does amazing work!! Her price is a little more if I remember right but I am willing to pay it. We were able to taste many different things and see actual cakes she was working on or had completed. For us it was a no brainer to use her.

            Wow.  I had a complete opposite experience with Maui Wedding Cakes.   When we went out there for our scouting trip in June, Cheryl was very nice and accommodating and gave us 6 large pieces of cake that we wanted to sample.  I thought it was quite delicious.  That sucks that you had a bad experience.   I will be leaving for Maui in 1.5 weeks for my wedding and I can give a review once i'm back.

              I am not sure the company name of the cake we ordered from, since our WP helped us out and got the quote but I'm super excited. They are willing to make the exact cake we want for $450!! WIth delivery included!

                We are also using Maui Wedding Cakes. I have not had any samples, but the restaurant where we are having our reception uses them and Cheryl has been super nice. We ordered a 2 tier cake that serves about 24 with buttercream frosting (but it looks really smooth) and it was $220 including tax and delivery.

                  Fondant makes the cake look alot better especially if your adding piping and flowers but a big thing is the cost, servings and taste. Even more important is the person whos doing the cake/cupcakes. Ive had a really good expeirence with Night Owl Cupcake. Their service was awesome and the 2 tier wedding cake they made for my cusins wedding accompanied but the matching cupcakes were beautiful. Also their prices were cheaper than most! Good luck....
