In one word: DELICIOUS!! I had a contract with another baker for my wedding cake, but when they went out of business a few weeks after I signed the contract, I started freaking out. Until I found Sweet Cakes by Melissa. Her husband interviewed with my MOH and myself, laying out the cake testing, and immediately put me at ease. The cake flavors and quality far surpassed what I had originally planned and the costs were cheaper! How's that for lucking out!The flavors we went with were Raspberry Dream, Chocolate Heaven, and the Boston Cream Pie. I have never heard so many compliments on food in my life. Everyone was asking where we got the cake and if they were close enough that my guests could find the baker. The cakes were moist (no freezing first here!) and the frosting was sweet and light. We even had one of her cakes (Red Velvet) for my bridal shower which got my female guests salivating at the idea of getting more at the wedding.The professionalism and service of Sweet Cakes was also fantastic. My groom couldn't make the cake tasting, so they gave me three cupcakes (and those things are BIG), one for each flavor I had chosen, so my HTB could try the flavors himself and decide if he wanted something else... all complimentary! My sister is getting married this next summer and she is planning to use Sweet Cakes, too, based on what she had at my wedding... high praise indeed. :)
Melissa and her husband were very flexible with our scheduling, and did an amazing job. We went in for our cake testing, designed a beautiful cake with Melissa's husband, and put our down payment. About 2 weeks later they worked with us to completely redesign the cake, as we had a change of heart when we had seen another cake she had made. They were very patient with us for the changes we made, and adjusted the pricing accordingly. I have no complaints, and we are both very excited for the remake of our top tier on our 1st anniversary!
We are a family owned business, and we make all of our cakes %100 from scratch using the best ingredients we can get! We love what we do and take so much pride in our work. We love custom designing cakes for our brides, we always say as long as it is possible we will do it. When we make our brides their cake we feel so honored to be apart of one of the most special days of their lives! Let Sweet Cakes be apart of your :o)
