When it comes to trusting the right vendor on your wedding day,
see just what a few of our industry partners have to say about us! 

"I have been a fan of Freedom Bakery for many years. Having worked at more than a few venues in the area, I always make sure they are on our Preferred Vendor List as a recommended provider of Cakes and other baked treats. The feedback I have received from my clients (brides, grooms, and others) has always been great. They are easy to work with, prompt in their delivery, very communicative, and always very professional. I am always pleased when I hear a client has selected Freedom Bakery. (And, their cakes are very tasty too!)"
- Dana Deminna, Director of Catering / Monterey Tides
“I am a local wedding planner in the Monterey area and when I tell you the joy I get from hearing my clients have selected Freedom Bakery is just SWEET!!

I know when I have them as a vendor everything will be handled professionally. The cake is amazing, but the process is even better. They respond within a reasonable time, provide dessert tastings, make your vision come to life, deliver / set up day of event and provide instructions for clients / vendors.

Always reliable and such a friendly team to work with.“
- Francesca Comin, Event Manager / The Perry House | The Barns at Cooper Molera | The Monterey Beach House

"Freedom Bakery is hands down the premier wedding cake bakery in the Monterey Bay area. Club Del Monte couples always express the loving service they receive from Paul and his team when selecting their dream wedding cake. With our location on a military base, communication is so important with the delivery process. Freedom Bakery always provides the utmost professional delivery service hands down. You can see the love Paul has for the cakes in a delivery system he has created with specialty created boxes to transport the cakes with detailed directions in simplistic terms. We know when Freedom’s bringing a cake, it’s going to be a little slice of heaven as the guests are known to say."

Melanie Arellano, Catering Manager / Club Del Monte Naval Postgraduate School
"Freedom Bakery is always a pleasure to work with. They are one of our longtime preferred vendors for cakes and bakery items. We always feel very confident in recommending to our clients for their beautiful, tasty, and amazing presentation on their goods. We always know clients are in good hands when booking. They are always so friendly and reliable. Highly recommend Freedom Bakery for your special event."

- Bridgette Quartararo, Director of Catering & Conference Services / Seascape Beach Resort
"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Paul and the amazing team of Freedom Bakery for over 20 years. I love working with them because they are professional from the 1st call or email (response time is always within 24 hours), and they have never turned down any of my wedding clients’ crazy designs. I’ve also worked with him on the corporate client side and the recipients have always been impressed, which then looks good for my business clients. "I’m a big believer in “you know who to turn to when the road gets bumpy” and Paul was there when we had to redirect and get creative for one “vid” wedding in particular when the venue had to cancel LITERALLY the morning of the wedding (not the venue’s fault). We were looking for a new spot to hold the wedding and reception and Paul was in his delivery van just waiting for my direction and was willing to go wherever we decided to land. I won’t go into further detail but when the clients thought the vision of their dream day was ruined, Paul came through. Being a wedding planner on the Monterey Peninsula for over 25 years, I know who I can count on, who my clients will enjoy working with, and who will consistently create amazing and delicious desserts. Freedom Bakery is on my speed dial for a reason and I highly recommend them to anyone wanting the best!"
- Patty Speirs, Owner / Every Last Detail Wedding & Event Coordination

"I have been a wedding florist for over 31 years and I can honestly say that Paul and his team at Freedom Bakery have been the nicest and easiest to work with by far. They call me to verify details regarding floral on the cake as well as setups and delivery time. If I'm supplying the cake plates, they check with me about how many I'm supplying or how many we will need. I remember meeting with Paul one time to discuss a particularly intricate cake design for a couple from New York. We talked through concepts, colors, and design to make sure it would be just right and when I left his tasting room, he sent me home with a box full of delicious goodies. Anything I've ever had that Freedom has created has been fantastic. In all the years of working with Freedom, I have never heard a negative comment by a vendor or a client. That is truly a miraculous thing in the wedding industry. Most importantly, they are always friendly, kind and professional. I always recommend Freedom Bakery to my clients if they ask about a wedding bakery."
- Melody King, Owner  / Fleurish Floral Design


"When brides and grooms tell us that Freedom Bakery is providing their cake, we are relieved to know that the cake will be delivered in plenty of time for us to provide flower accents. We appreciate the professional cake appearance, and friendly staff that keep the lines of communication open so we can be a part of creating the couple’s vision."
-Sarah Pink, Owner / Pink Petals Florist


"My professional life as a Wedding Coordinator is made 100% easier when without a doubt I can recommend a vendor who delivers a great service and product to all my wedding clients. It is wonderful to be able to recommend a vendor I can trust, who cares and fulfills what they promise. For 12 years with pride and an easy heart I have recommended Freedom Bakery to all my wedding clients, believing that everything Freedom Bakery offers will be delivered on time and presented perfectly. Their service is friendly and uncomplicated. Their wedding cake choices and designs are extensive and creative. All Freedom Bakery's cakes are delicious and I never in my career as a wedding coordinator had a complaint about Freedom Bakery in these past 12 years. One of the perks of my job is to treat myself to a "quality inspection. Happy to say- my wedding clients and I love (!!) the wedding cakes and desserts made by Freedom Bakery". I look forward to many more years working together with this wonderful family owned business and it's team".
