The World’s Most Elaborate Cakes: Costa Mesa’s Let Them Eat Cake Bake Shop

If Prince William and Kate Middleton’s cake designer should suddenly fall through they can always call the haute cake designer at Christopher Garren’s Let Them Eat Cake to step in and save the day. These magnificent wedding cakes and specialty cakes are so spectacular you almost don’t want to cut into them (but, oh what a treat when you do).

Christopher Russom is the owner of Christopher Garren’s Cakes and is the master baker and cake commander-in-chief. His attention to detail and innovative designs landed him and his staff a stint on the WE network’s “Amazing Wedding Cakes” series.

These cakes are a labor of love and passion from inspiration to completion. Everything that leaves their kitchen down to each flower is made by hand–no mixes are used; eggs are delivered each week from a local egg farm; and all the cakes are filled with the freshest organic fruits available. European chocolate is found within all their products: Valrhona, Michel Cluizel, and a Belgium dark blend.

When you order a custom cake from Christopher Garren’s it’s guaranteed that it will come to you in the freshest manner possible. No shelf stabilizers, preservatives or additives are present in your cake, and these custom cakes are baked fresh when you order and never frozen. If it can’t be made with edible components then they won’t sell or create the cake. Each step, from the first watercolor sketch to the finished cake, is given the utmost care and attention to assure the customer a memorable experience and a lasting impression of the quality of their cakes.

Let Them Eat Cake also offers a variety of classes should you want to learn how to stack these fondant treasures at home. They also kindly offer barista services at their retail store: Mocha, Cappuccino, Latte, Espresso as well as a full line of pastries, cakes, gateaux and tarts, whole and by the slice.

2-D and 3-Day cakes of any design are also available.  Take a look at the website for inspiration:  www.letthemeatcake.netThe staff cordially invites clients to come into the store, discuss their ideas, browse through their portfolio, and let them help plan the event of your dreams.

Christopher Garren’s Cakes is located at 3321 Hyland Avenue, Suites J&H, Costa Mesa, 714.445.0189.
