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!!!... More

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.

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... More

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... More

If you like cake, there is no need to go anywhere else for the perfect cake. The banana cake is a local favorite, but they are all amazing.

I love this place. Not only do they have the best carrot cake ever, they have very imaginative types of cupcakes which are really really good. Better than Cara's, Sprinkles, etc.
