Wedding Cakes

Of course, we are still best known for our Wedding Cakes!! Whether your inspirations are bold, unique and extravagant, or simple and more refined, Skiff’s Cakes caters to both style and budget. As always, the consultation and tasting are complimentary! (We never pass on an opportunity to celebrate an engagement!

We only require a $100.00 deposit (non refundable*) to include your wedding reception on our calendar. While we try to honor a first come/first considered method for scheduling any event, those receptions that are further away from our physical location are advised to contact us sooner, rather than later, for a consultation (no time is too soon!). * Deposit of $100. is required in order to reserve date and time of delivery. While it will apply to the final balance, it cannot be reused for credit on any future cake or dessert.

    A++++!  The cake was SO good. It was like a cake fresh from your Mom’s oven. My husband and I have been eating the cake every night since the wedding because it is so good. Highly recommended.

    This bakery is amazing. We order all our birthday cakes from them and have also had them make 2 custom cakes for us that were mind blowing! Their daily selection of sweets is wonderful and everything is absolutely delicious! Best bakery in SoCal by far.

    Skiff's cakes did an amazing job on a cake for my father in laws birthday! Omar was amazing helping me with the order long distance. I was able to send some ideas via email and complete the order over the phone! It definitely exceeded my expectations! The taste of the cake was amazing too! Thank you, I just wish you had a location near me in Colorado!

    Amazing cupcakes, macarons, and other treats. Their presentation is top notch in style and creativity, their flavors are rich and decadent. Easily on par with (and in most cases better than) the best bakeries in Los Angeles and New York. If Skiff's were located in a big city there would be people lined up around the block. Lucky for us it's in Simi so it's always a mellow and easy going experience. A true local gem!

How early do I need to place my order? 
Stacks Image 1068
We request a week's notice for any cakes that are scheduled to be picked up on the weekend. (Wedding and shaped cakes may require more notice).
Do you use fondant on your cakes?
While fondant can be an invaluable decorative element, we try to limit its use to enhance an otherwise iced cake (vanilla butter cream or whipped cream) whenever possible. Our goal is to create a cake that will entice your eyes and your taste buds, at the same time!!
