We were in town for my niece's wedding and needed a local place to make a cake. Since we're not from here, it took a while to find somewhere, but we ultimately and to "take a leap of faith" and trust that we found a place that wouldn't mess the order up. Layers didn't disappoint. They took detailed order over... More

The choices were limited, so I decided on a red... More

I have never physically been to Layers Sensational Cakes, but I have been the happy recipient of tasting not once, but twice their amazing Margarita cake! In 2010, a dear friend purchased the Margarita cake for me on my birthday. I'm not a huge lover of cake (thick cake, heavy and sweet frosting), but that doesn't mean I am not... More

Growing up on the East Coast where a good bakery could be found in every strip mall I felt like I was home again at Layers. Love the bear claws and the nice... More

I recently got married in Carmel and had a wonderful experience with Layers. Our cake was SO delicious and beautifully decorated. We went back last weekend to get a mini version to enjoy!
