Reviews by the General Public

disappointed with quality, 9/29/2014
Reviewer: Karen from Santa Barbara, CA
I went to the bakery to inquire about a cake for my mom who has sensitivities to some preservatives/chemicals. The girl I spoke with was kind but was stunned about my questions regarding their ingredients. Much to my surprise they use cake mixes, fake fillings, and raw shortening (crisco)frosting. I bought a cupcake and yup it had a bitter chemical after taste. I left disappointed and puzzled, why charge so much for cheap ingredients and why not let the public know so we can make better choices for our families?


Love, love, love, 9/10/2014

We always get our cakes for work events from Wayne. We have never had a cake that wasn't moist and delish. Info to the previous poster - it's not imitation banana flavoring, it's banana liquor, which is what one uses to flavor things....


Blah Cake, 8/30/2014
Reviewer: mary from Santa Barbara, CA
Disappointing. Constructive criticism: Use bananas instead of imitation banana flavoring if your making "banana cake."


Very Moist Cupcakes, 8/29/2014
Reviewer: Glenn from Buellton
Probably the Moistest Cupcakes around, like eating wedding cake. Really good. Nice people.

BEST Cake Ever - Your Cake Baker...Wayne Kjar
Reviewer: Nellie from Santa Barbara, CA
We had the most wonderful cake this weekend for my friend's 50th birthday! It was the BEST cake I have ever tasted. My recommendation to everyone: Just go to Wayne..run to Your Cake Baker...Wayne Kjar! The Bakery is cute, smells wonderful and the staff is pleasant and very attentive. This is the only place I will buy cake! Very Delicious!


DELICIOUS, FRESH & CLEAN
Reviewer: Kae from Santa Barbara, CA
I love the fresh cupcakes and cakes from Wayne Kjar. He and his staff really have more than customer service in mind--it's more like customer delight. The bakery is clean and the shop well taken care of. The cupcakes and cakes are super fresh and truly scrumptious! Super variety. It's a Santa Barbara JEWEL that locals frequent. I've been here over 20 years and this is the best bakery I've found anywhere! Cake, yum!


Cupcake mediocrity, cream puff heaven
Reviewer: Tracy from Santa Barbara, CA
Tried 3 cupcakes and a cream puff. Lemon cupcake was the best of the three, the frosting had nice strong kick of lemon zest and the cake was light and fluffy. The red velvet cake was very dry and lacking in flavor and the white buttercream on top tasted too much like shortening and not enough like butter. The carrot cake had a nice carrot/walnut flavor but the cream cheese frosting was too sweet, needed more cheese flavor. The cream puff however was a delight! Filled with both whipped cream and pastry cream, both were only very lightly sweetened which let the flavor of the cream shine nicely. The choux pastry was crisp and fluffy in all the right ways. I won't be back for the cupcakes (too much shortening in frosting!), but I will certainly return for more cream puffs!


Eeehhhh
Reviewer: Jimena from Santa Barbara, CA
Went to order a cake from this place. The girl who took my order was very sweet. The owner in the other hand was not inviting at all he was rude. He got up set there was a issue with the register. The cake was okay nothing special . a little over priced if you ask me.


Best cakes ever!
Reviewer: Kathy from Santa Barbara, CA
Wayne Kjar's cakes are superb. He uses the very best ingredients and has a Master's touch. I wouldn't go anywhere else for cakes and other bakery items.


BEST WEDDING CAKE
Reviewer: Brandon from Los Angeles, CA
Thank you Wayne for delivering an OUTSTANDING & DELICIOUS wedding cake! Our guests loved the cake. Many people raved that it was the best wedding cake they have ever had. The service was excellent and the design of the cake was beautiful and the taste was like no other. Not often the guests actually finish the wedding cake but our guests couldn't get enough! Best Baker in Santa Barbara hands down!


We're not big 'cake people' BUT...
Reviewer: Ginger from Santa Barbara, CA
