In addition to baking and designing deliciously contemporary wedding cakes, Amy and her staff also create custom cupcake towers and innovative dessert tables that will keep your guests coming back for seconds and thirds.
Couples will personally meet with a cake designer to collaborate on the design and provide a decadent choice of cake, cupcakes or assorted confections to sample. One famous cupcake flavor is the Meyer Lemon Raspberry Cupcake which Martha Stewart chose personally to be baked on the “Martha Stewart Show.” VBS has an extensive menu of cake flavors to choose from including the popular “Fleur Del Sel” chocolate cake which was featured in Bon Appetit magazine.
It’s not just their variety of flavors and designs that keep their clients happy, the Vanilla Bake Shop team believe that each cake should be baked with the highest quality ingredients and always made with love. They put their hearts into their cakes, cupcakes, confections and clients. Amy and Jeremy oversee the delivery of your product to the event site to ensure that perfection is achieved every time.
After operating a wedding cake and dessert catering company for many years, Amy and Jeremy Berman decided to open up a shop in Santa Monica in 2007. The name, Vanilla Bake Shop, came from Amy’s time in culinary school were she learned that vanilla is the most universally loved flavor. Vanilla Bake Shop wedding cakes and desserts has been featured in magazines such as Los Angeles Weddings, The Knot, Bride and Bloom, Modern Bride and Bon Appetit. The New York Times, Dr. Phil and Martha Stewart have sung the praises of Vanilla Bake Shop. At the 2008 LA Cupcake Challenge, Vanilla Bake Shop’s Red Velvet took first place for “Best Traditional Cupcake.”

“Vanilla Bake Shop is gourmet baking! Guests at our wedding were lined up for seconds. Most couples like to save a piece of their wedding cake to eat on their first anniversary but we didn’t and couldn’t. We ate it all!”
“A million times over we would recommend Vanilla Bake Shop! Amy is so talented and so passionate about what they do. Their work is styled perfectly for each event and tastes as great as it looks.”
“We had 300 guests and I wanted something with a twist. Amy designed this beautiful Damask cupcake tower that was absolutely fabulous. Amy also did all my favors which were macarons in a bag with a personalized seal. I got everything I wanted and more!”
“For our commitment ceremony in the California desert, my partner and I ordered cakes in the forms of various cacti. Amy was very receptive to designing cakes that were so untraditional. Some guests didn’t even realize the ‘cacti’ were cakes because they were so realistic!”
“They not only do extraordinary dessert bars but they also have a candy table they design and install that is outrageous!”
