Lydia was perfect. Not only did she deliver exactly what we asked for, but she was an absolute joy to work with! She is very hard working and takes care of her clients. I can't say anything that would truly do her justice. She is an amazing baker/artist. Oh and the cake was really tasty too. Seriously, look no further.

Lydia did such a wonderful job on my daughter's first birthday cake. I sent her over a copy of the invitation and the cake she created matched so perfectly. Everyone at the party kept saying how beautiful the cake was. I would certainly use Lydia again for future cakes!

If you are looking for a unique wedding cake then Lydia is your person. My daughter was looking for a non-traditional topping for her cake and asked Lydia if she could design a top with 2 salmon on it. I know it sounds unusual, but they both grew up fishing with their families and it is part of them. At the beginning of their dating my daughter and her fiance were fishing at Westport and she landed a 47 pound salmon. This became the theme of their wedding. When we asked Lydia if she could do a salmon, she said she had done a fish before and was up for the challenge. It turned out an absolute masterpiece with an incredible amount of detail. She presented a sketch with 2 salmon on it as my daughter requested and it was made by Lydia using sugar. All the guest were in awe of it. It was a true work of art. Not only did the cake look good, it tasted delicious! Lydia was very professional and easy to work with.

Everything we could have dreamed of in our wedding cake! Outstanding job! Lydia was very flexible with us and delivered our cake to our venue for free! She helped us design our cake and gave great ideas. She allowed us to make our own cake toppers! If you're looking for someone to make your cake, this is your gal!

Lydia is a sweet, genuine, accommodating ARTIST. Her hand made flowers are absolutely incredible! Her cakes were varied and she actually came to our daughter's home for a tasting. As much as her artist abilities are superb, her baking is just a fabulous! The chocolate mousse and the fresh strawberry vanilla were moist and very tasty. Good Luck Lydia! I hope we meet up again in the future. Claire 

Lydia was so wonderful to work with and our cake was BEAUTIFUL! She is extremely creative and took what we wanted and made it even better. Not to mention how delicious it was! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone:)

Text message received - Everything since Saturday has been a blur and I meant to text sooner, but... THANK YOU!! I seriously can't thank you enough for executing such a perfect cake! Everyone loved it, it looked exactly how I imagined it, and you made everything so incredibly seamless. I couldn't be more grateful that I had you on my wedding team. You're seriously the best!

 

Review on Weddingwire -I honestly can't say enough great things about my experience with Lydia. She made every step of the wedding cake process easy and worry free! The tasting exceeded my expectations, and I was pleasantly faced with the tough choice of trying to pick between the various cake flavors because they were all so amazing. I provided Lydia with a baseline for my design, and she ran with it! She suggested the using custom sugar flowers, which I never would've thought of doing. But I'm SO GLAD I did! They were literally the centerpiece of the cake, and the cake was the centerpiece of my dessert bar. My words of advice? If you're looking for a talented cake designer who is patient, flexible and incredibly talented, go with Lydia and Finale - Signature Cakes by Lydia! :)

I looked at the other two recommendations at Chambers and I am not fond of Corrinas and then I looked at the other company and their cakes were too traditional. What we liked about Lydia was the creativity of her cakes and when we saw the snowmobile and we had jet skis we new we wanted her. She was very responsive, her cake choices were great and she delivered more that what we had hoped for. Everyone at our wedding marveled at the cake.

Linda & Vic

Lydia was such a pleasure to work! She gave of the most dreamy wedding cake I could have asked for! I knew bringing in a picture off of Pinterest would be a long shot, but she made it possible! The cake was spot on and tasted even better! Can’t wait for our one year anniversary to have it again!

Elise & Jaren 

Lydia was so fantastic and her cakes are amazing! I had a specific picture in mine - a painting of peonies - that she turned into the cake of my dreams. She made peonies in multiple colors out of sugar that she added to the cake and it was so beautiful! People were amazed that they weren't real! We did vanilla and chocolate layers with raspberry filling - guests were coming back for seconds and asking who did the cake. Wedding cake often isn't very good but ours was so delicious! Lydia is talented, responsive, dependable, and incredibly kind - I can't recommend her highly enough!

Lisa & Craig

Best. Cake. EVER! I can't even begin to explain how impressed I was with Finale Signature Cakes. Lydia took my Pinterest dreams (that were all over the place), and designed me a cake that I never in my wildest dreams could have imagined. I wish I could share a picture of the creation!!! She's a true artist. If you don't taste (and book) her fresh strawberry cake with vanilla buttercream frosting- you're crazy! I still have people bringing up the flavor of the cake, along with how gorgeous it was. The flowers on her sites are all SUGAR! The leaves, the petals, everything, all sugar flowers! When I showed my wedding coordinator she said she didn't believe me and that "she's sure they are real flowers, I think you're mistaken"- ha! THAT'S how real they look! Act fast! She's busy and maxes out, so don't wait to book!!  

Nicole & Elliott

Lydia was absolutely amazing! I really wasn't that into a cake, but it was important to our parents so I started looking around. I fell in love as soon as I talked to Lydia on the phone. The tasting was so much fun, and seeing all of her sugar flowers was the clincher. They look so incredibly real (so real in fact that our sugar flowers accidentally got thrown away after our reception because someone thought they looked like random flowers that had fallen off a bouquet!) In true form, Lydia offered to make us new ones so that we can treasure them forever. I would HIGHLY recommend her services to anyone. We've already sent 3 couples her way. You won't be disappointed!

If you stop on Lydia's website or Facebook page, just stay here. Stop looking anywhere else. She is THE BEST person for your wedding! We could not have been happier with our cake and the service that went along with it. She is a true artist and the nicest person to work with. She deserves far more recognition and I hope you at least go in for a tasting. Because once you taste the cakes (sooo delicious!), see her sugar flowers (so incredibly real looking..), and meet her (so down to earth), you will book her right then and there! Easiest vendor choice we made the whole time planning. Thanks Lydia! 

I was looking for a delicious tasting, affordable, beautiful cake maker in the South King County area- and I was so lucky to find the very best cake lady in the Seattle area! Lydia's cake tastes amazing, which for me was the most important thing, but not only that she makes gorgeous cakes. She took the time to help me create the perfect cake for us. Her sugar flowers are incredible and I had to actually point out to guests at our wedding that the tulips were not real but in fact made of sugar. You'd be crazy not to work with Lydia.  

Rebecca & Peter

Lydia is one of a kind. For her tasting, she opened up her home to us, and made 4 different small cakes to try along with some of her amazing marshmallow fondant. We instantly fell in love with the amazing flavors and unique combinations she provided. It is simply the best cake I've ever had. I highly recommend her signature strawberry - the guests were raving about it! Not only does she make tasty cakes, she also is an outstanding artist. Her sugar flowers look so real and elegant, and the best part of all is I get to keep them forever. She made a 5 tier gorgeous cake for the wedding, and we kept the fondant on because it is so delicious. She never freezes her cake - and refuses to let you - she invited me to contact her in a year to get a small cake made for my husband and I's 1 year anniversary. She is lovely - I highly recommend her.  

Niki & Geoff

I can't thank Lydia enough for the amazing service she provided. From beginning to end, Lydia was extremely professional and was such a pleasure to work with. Our cake, where do I begin....it was a HIT! everyone loved it and we received so many compliments from the design to the taste. It was obvious that Lydia passionate about what she does, because it shows in her work. Our cake was perfect! moist and very delicious, every detail put into it was an absolute show stopper. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Carmine Babauta & Sean Sablan

Lydia did an excellent job combining a few different wedding cake images I sent her and made us our one of a kind cake perfect for our special day!! My only regret is that I told our wait staff they didn't need to save us the top for our anniversary since she will make you a new one on your one year. I was craving it the days following the wedding!

Julie & Jumall

You would be out of your mind to look any further for a cake vendor. We tried a number of "top-rated" cake vendors in the area, and they literally weren't even in the same league as Lydia. Don't be fooled by her at-home operation-- the fact that she does this as an out-of home business means that her cakes TASTE home baked, as opposed to generic and frozen. This lasted like the cake of my childhood- moist, flavorful, not too rich and wonderfully textured. And that was just the flavor!! She is a true artist in every sense of the word... the cake she designed for us was fully customized, beautiful and creative. And don't even get me started on the sugar flowers. I have never seen anything like it. Working with Lydia was a true pleasure, and I could not imagine getting a cake from anywhere else. Best decision ever.

Sarah & Jon

The cake by Finale - Signature cakes by Lydia far exceeded all expectations. The cake was expertly crafted, taste was fantastic, and the service Lydia provided was professional and timely. We highly recommend choosing Finale - Signature cakes by Lydia to anyone considering her services.

Paul & Marina

Lydia was great to work with for the special cake I wanted for a Great Gatsby Themed 49th birthday party. We talked through ideas and she came up with a beautiful and delicious cake for the special event. I recommend Lydia to everyone looking for a special event cake and she will be the person I call the next time I need one.

 Kris 

Not only the look of the cake but the taste is amazing as well. Everyone loved the cake. This is one of those occasions there was no left over cake....and even if there was... everyone would be more than happy to take them.... Lydia was very nice to work with and very easy and professional..... it was clear how passionate she was about the quality and making me happy......... She would be the only Cake artist I would be working and would be recommending to everyone.

Siri

Lydia created a beautiful and very original circus baby shower cake that featured Disney's Dumbo. It was absolutely perfect and the star of the shower.. She is so creative, detail oriented and wonderful to work with. I have never seen work like hers, and I am extremely picky and have very high standards for the parties I throw.. She is the only cake designer I will work with.

Kenani

Lydia was very responsive to all of my emails and questions. I had asked her to create a cake with a theme that she had never done before and it turned out perfect! Her cakes are super and I would definitely use her again when I am looking for a custom cake. Awesome cake and service!

Kari

The cake Lydia made for us was not actually a wedding cake, but a cake for our stable's Christmas Party. Lydia crafted the most clever cake for us horse people. I am sorry I cannot post a photo of it here, but there are several on Lydia's website: Finale - Signature Cakes By Lydia. The cake was incredible! The details included a show jumping obstacle with horse and rider jumping it, a first place prize ribbon, horse shoes with rhinestones, etc... And the cake was delicious! Before the cake was cut, there was a line of people wanting to take photos of this amazing cake.

Louise

Lydia was absolutely AMAZING from the beginning to the end. On top of this the cake was to die for. Fondant usually tastes yucky... well Lydia makes hers from scratch and it is delicious!! Then the cake... OMG it was a true TBO (taste buds orgasm). My fiance (now husband), maid of honor, flower girl and I went for the tasting it was so much fun. Lydia explained the number of hours she puts into hand making each flower... There is amazing craftsmanship and love put into every cake. I personally can't wait to use her for my 50th in February!! I would recommend Lydia to anyone and I do.

Melynda & Chet

Lydia was my favorite vendor out of everyone that we worked with. She was the most responsive, professional, and attentive. She even added an additional layer to our cake free of charge to make it look better. She's awesome and we highly recommend her. The cake turned out beautiful.

Presentation- Perfect Taste- Perfect Texture- Fluffy and Amazing Affordable- Yes! Lydia offered competitive prices and superior quality to anything we'd seen or tasted. We tried multiple bakeries that all offered beautiful designs, yet the flavors and textures were always lacking. Once we sampled a Finale cake we knew we'd found the right baker/artist. We presented her with unique cake design ideas and she created a personalized design better than anything we'd imagined. Presentation is such a huge part of a wedding cake, but the taste blew our guests away. The quality of the ingredients is apparent in the flavor and texture of the cake, frosting and fondant. Lydia makes her own fondant and it tastes amazing! Everything is genuinely homemade with real ingredients - no artificial flavors or funny stuff. We had a strawberry cake with real strawberries! Delicious and beautiful!

Josh & Elizabeth

I am the mother of the bride! Seriously the most Beautiful cake I have ever seen! Tasted great too! Lydia was nice to work with, very caring and knows what she is doing! Wish I could post a picture, it's so beautiful I could look at it all day!! We had her put ruffles on the cake, AMAZING!

Vicki

I had the most beautiful wedding cake ever! I gave her a picture for inspiration and she nailed it!! She really does care about you and wants to make your dream cake a reality! I had a non traditional banana cake with cream cheese frosting and many people at the wedding said it was the most amazing cake they have ever tasted! I'm not a cake fan at all in fact I have never liked it but hers is real homemade amazingness and I cant wait to eat it again! I will go back to her every chance I get!!! You should too!!!
