In 2013, Mmm...Cakes was created as a small home based cake and dessert business by Chula Vista native Jose Barajas. During the early days he gained a small following around San Diego County due to his extravagant, creative and unique cakes.


It was around this time that Jose began appearing in several TV competitions, to include TLC's 'Next Great Baker' and Food Network's 'Cake Wars' and 'Holiday Gingerbread Showdown'.


Soon after it became quite clear that it was time to move somewhere where he could meet his full creative potential. So in 2021, together with his sister in law Stevie and brother Miguel, the family owned and operated Mmm...Cakes opened its first store front in historic Third Ave in Chula Vista, CA.


Our mission is simple, to create and provide a friendly, unique and tasteful experience for all of our guests. 


We look forward to having you join us!
