[Review] Perfect combination

I finally paid a second visit today with my little sister. We were so excited to try the cupcakes again! I came right at 4 while they were closing, but the nice man in the front let us come in anyways. After deciding what to order, and having some friendly chit chat with the man at the counter, he came out with 4 cupcakes.

1. Red velvet with cream cheese frosting: Delicious, as usual. The cake is so soft and the frosting is so dense. I love it!

2. Red velvet with chocolate chip frosting: Again, delicious. The frosting is much lighter and packed with chocolate chips, making it a delicious and less dense treat!

3. Chocolate with chocolate chip frosting: Tasted like a sophisticated Hostess cupcake. I love that each cupcake has a center of cream running through it. So tasty.

4. Chocolate with chocolate fudge topped with caramel and sea salt: MY NUMBER ONE FAVORITE. My goodness, this stuff is amazing. You seriously have to try this cake. The cake is soft and fluffy, and the contrast with the super dense creamy fudge with melting caramel and sprinkles of sea salt on top makes it a perfect combination of soft/dense, creamy/rich, sweet/salty. Overall, just perfect. You have to get this cupcake.

We also got the chocolate chip cake balls which are waiting for us in the fridge. I am too full from the cupcakes.

The service was amazing (Thank you Philip!), and the products speak for themselves. Pay a visit, I swear you won’t regret it (but your waistline might).

[Review] Delicious, moist sweet and fluffy cupcake

When visiting bakeries for the first time, I always get the red velvet. If I like the red velvet cupcakes then I’ll keep coming back. And I loved Patty’s red velvet. The cupcake was moist and the frosting was fluffy and sweet (but not too thick and overpowering). I also got the chocolate chip cake balls, and they were delicious. It tasted like I was eating cookie dough! I’m definitly going back for more.

[Review] Creative and amazing cupcake with sweetness

 

My goodness. All of the reviews are right. This place is amazing!

My good friend Sarah brought me and my friend here on our girl’s day out and WOW! I was blown away. The shop is so quaint and adorable and the lady in the front is just oozing with sweetness. Once we put in our orders for our cupcakes to be iced on the spot, we sat by and amused ourselves by looking at their book full of past wedding cakes (all amazing and creative by the way).

We ordered red velvet, elvis, and a chocolate chip cake ball.

Red Velvet: You HAVE to get one of these. The cake is light and very fluffy. The frosting is to die for.. You can really taste the cream cheese and it’s so perfectly creamy and delcious. My mouth is watering just writing this review…

Elvis: My friend and I both squealed “EWW” when we read its description. Peanut butter, banana and bacon cupcake? The guy in the front laughed at us and said that it is actually pretty good. And he was right! It was unexpectedly tasty; the combination of the sweet banana cake, fluffy peanut butter frosting and crisp salty bacon was unique but good at the same time.

Chocolate chip cake ball: I only had a tiny bite of my friend’s when I really wanted to just stuff the whole thing in my mouth. It had great texture and the combination of cake and chocolate was an epic win.

For 3 dollars each, I guess you can say they’re pretty expensive especially for the cake balls. Come in on a special ocassion when you can afford to gain a few pounds and you won’t regret it!

Hurrah for Patty and her cakes! Right when we received the goodies she assured us that we WILL be back, and she was definitely right!

[Review] High quality ingredients, love, and care go into these cake balls

*****************OMGOSH!* *************************

Jerry Lee Lewis and ACDC!
What do they have in common with Patty Cakes? Yup, BALLS BALLS BALLS!
Who has the biggest great balls of fire? Patty Does!!

I will make this short and to the point.

~Cupcakes-(4 Stars)
Just my preference. I love the cakes. Great cakes. I am just not a fan of soft frosting. These are good cupcakes..just my preference. They have several choices. I had the Elvis (banana, peanut butter, bacon.) and a butter cream apple.

My little princess said her two favs were the same as mine, Smores and Chocolate Cake Balls.

~CAKE BALLS! (4.5 Stars)
TRY THESE
High quality ingredients, love, and care go into these balls of fire.

SMORES (5 Stars): This one is the best. Firm casing and the softest and most moist cake ever in the inside. Perfectly textured. Perfectly created. 5 Stars.

Chocolate (5 Stars)-A close second. A definite for chocolate lovers. Darn Good!

Lemon (4 Stars)
Vibrant flavor. Same perfectly textured casing as the others with a very moist cake on the inside. 4 Stars.

Red Velvet (4 Stars)
Red Velvet is not my favorite in general. The cake ball here, however, makes me a fan. Unbelievably created.

Chocolate Chip-(3 Stars)
My least favorite. The taste wasn’t there for me and the cake was dry.

*****Bonus! ******
They make specialty cake balls for special occasions (Like Easter). You can call in orders. The place is cute and perfect for little girls. Everything is pink. They also sell hand made cards. Buy three cupcakes + mention yelp and get a free cupcake. Adding an additional half star for these great bonuses.  Rounding up to 5 Stars!

Patty Cake’s is in the corner next to Albertsons and the cleaners on the corner of Commonwealth and Raymond. I couldn’t find it at first.

4.5 Stars and rounding up!

Patty’s Cakes..Yup in the OC…another reason the OC is the best place to live!

[Review] OMG Patty…those Cake Balls were fabulous

“Omg patty…those cake balls were fabulous. Not one of them made it to my clients office. I’m afraid of how many calories I ate. Well worth every one. I think the chocolate chip was my favorite hard to tell :-)”

[Review] From the taste to the presentation, this place gets an A+

“Being someone who loves sweets, I am usually a tough critic when I first try things at a new place. From the moment I had my first treat from Patty’s Cakes and Desserts, I was hooked. From the taste to the presentation, this place gets an A+. I highly recommend the cake balls in the chocolate chip and banana flavors. This place is definitely one of the best! “

[Review] Cake balls: Man, Those Little Treats Were Impressive!

“I really want to give Patty’s 4.5 stars. Here’s the thing – I ordered one of their pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes. I would love to tell you all to go get one, but they are seasonal and I got one from the last batch that they made. So, unfortunately, you are now out of luck because it was REALLY good. My only complaint was that they fill the center of the cupcake with more frosting. I am sure that many of you are now thinking, “So? What the hell is wrong with MORE frosting?” And okay, yes, frosting is delicious. But when the cupcake is that good, I really would prefer to just have the frosting on top and enjoy having the proper amount of cake. The only time most bakers put frosting in the middle is to hide the fact that the cake part isn’t that good or that it is dry. Neither of those were the case at Patty’s, so I was sad to not have more cake.

I then ordered a dozen cake balls for a little New Year’s Eve get together with friends. Man, those little treats were impressive! They looked gorgeous and were delicious. Again – one little complaint: the cake balls were almost TOO moist. Yeah, weird, but it was almost like they were a little gummy and could have stayed in the oven for one more minute. I had two left over and they were a little better when eaten the next day. But boy, were they tasty! We had red velvet, chocolate chip, german chocolate, s’mores, and lemon – all were delicious and adorably prepared.

Both the cupcakes and the cake balls are $3 each. That is just a tiny bit pricey to me, considering that half the cupcake is really frosting and the cake balls are so small. But, I will definitely be back and look forward to getting a BD cake here for my husband. Oh yeah, and the service here is really friendly – love that!”

 

“Update – 1/19/2011  I hereby recant my criticism about Patty’s Cakes filling their cupcakes with frosting. I think that the first one I had just happened to have more than usual, but a couple I have had since then just had a little filling in them, which was a nice touch. And I think that most of the time, the cupcakes have a different filling in them – not the same frosting as what is on top. I just had a delectable lemon cupcake that had a great taste – not too sweet or too tart. It had a little bit of cream filling inside and lemon curd on top. Everything was in perfect balance. The chocolate cupcakes with chocolate fudge frosting had vanilla cream inside. So, I am on-board with the cupcake-filling-situation.”

[Review] The Cake Balls, Knocked My Socks Off!!

“I heard of Patty’s cakes through Groupons.  My weak spot is sweets!  If a shop pops up, I’m there.  I bought the Groupon for Patty’s cakes after seeing a friend purchased one also.  I checked their items out onine and saw that they pretty much offered the same stuff all sweet shops offer.  I saw pictures of the Cake balls and wasn’t to thrilled about them, they looked tooo sweet!  The cupcakes, how can they be any different than other places?  I took my boys in, bought two cake balls and a variety of cupcakes to sample.  The cake balls, knocked my socks off!!  We tried the chocolate chip and the red velvetVery moist inside and the chocolate that they are dipped in was not remotely overbearing!  The cupcakes, were also really good.  I love that the frosting is not sweet and love that the cupcakes are filled in the middle.  Needless to say I now have two to go places for desserts.  Very glad I bought the Groupon and found this place!!”
