Santa Barbara Wedding Cakes

At Lilac Pâtisserie, we believe that designing a wedding cake should be a unique and memorable experience for each couple. Lilac Pâtisserie offers a selection of luxurious and decadent cakes that are as beautiful as they are delicious. We use only the finest ingredients in our cakes, including intoxicating Madagascar vanilla, rich Belgian chocolate, and the freshest produce. Lilac Pâtisserie’s welcoming space includes a full-service Italian espresso bar, bistro dining, and the Cake Counter, a decorating station where Lilac Pâtisserie’s cake artists skillfully sculpt, craft and design each wedding masterpiece.

Gluten Free Wedding Cakes

Chef Gillian Muralles is focused on luxurious gluten-free baking. Along with co-owner — and husband — Chef Alam Muralles, every recipe the duo creates meets their high standards, and passes the three criteria for the Lilac Pâtisserie work-of-art test: taste, texture and appearance. Everything made at Lilac Pâtisserie is gluten free, but if we didn’t mention it, you might never know.

Wedding Cake Pricing

We offer two options for wedding cakes: custom-designed wedding cakes and smaller sweetheart cakes.

We offer custom wedding cakes starting at $600. Our custom wedding cake pricing starts at $8/serving and the smallest custom wedding cake priced at our base price serves up to 75 guests. Pricing increases as the design of the cake becomes more complex. We are happy to work with you to create a cake that fits your design aesthetic. If you are interested in a tiered cake that meets our minimum, we have a wedding cake design questionnaire, which helps us to better understand your wedding cake design ideas. This is a fun activity to do together as a couple! The questionnaire can be found here.

We are also able to create sweetheart cakes in a number of designs for smaller parties. Our smallest sweetheart cake is a single tier and serves up to 14 guests. Our largest sweetheart cake is two tiers and serves up to 40 guests. If you are interested, you may browse through the Celebration Cakes section of our online store to view the sweetheart cake designs that we offer. We do not currently offer custom designs for sweetheart cakes. You can also place an order for one of our sweetheart cake designs seamlessly on our online store by following the link here. If you are interested in adding fresh flowers to your sweetheart cake or delivery to your order, I will be happy to coordinate that with you.

Cake Tastings

We know that planning a wedding can be a big headache and we want to make the cake the best part! Well, maybe second to the “I Dos.” If you are interested in booking a cake tasting, we offer in-person consultations or flexible cake tastings.

In-person consultations are available for our clients looking to purchase a custom wedding cake (minimum $600) and are by appointment on Fridays and Saturdays from 11 am - 2 pm. During the consultation, we will get to know you as a couple and discuss your design aesthetic, as well as the details of your wedding, all while you enjoy sampling your choice of five of our signature cake flavors. In order to browse my cake tasting availability and to book an in-person cake tasting and consultation, please follow the link to my calendar here.

Otherwise, if you are interested in sampling some of our cakes but are looking for a smaller wedding cake, or if you need more flexibility in scheduling your tasting, we offer flexible cake tastings without a consultation any day of the week during business hours. Our flexible cake tastings can be enjoyed at the bakery or taken to go. To book a cake tasting without the in-person consultation, please click here.

A list of our current cake flavors can be found here. Cake tastings cost $25 and you will be able to pay for your tasting when you book your appointment. Once you have booked your tasting, you will receive an email to confirm your appointment time and the cake flavors that you have chosen.
