Amazing Cake! posted 9/14/2014

We had a great experience using sweet retreat bakery for or wedding cake! We ordered two different flavors: almond and strawberry balsamic. Our guests RAVED about the cake and many said it was the best wedding cake they have ever had. The staff was professional and always very quick to respond to our emails, as we were planning the wedding long distance. While this bakery may cost more than others in the area, it was worth every cent. We are looking forward to our one year anniversary so we can enjoy more delicious cake and would not hesitate to purchase from sweet retreat again in the future.

Sweet Retreat - Delicious posted 9/3/2014

We decided to go with cupcakes for our guests and sweet retreat provided a ton of options for us to choose from! The cupcakes were a hit and I plan to go back on occasion just to remind myself how awesome they were :) We also had a small cake for us to cut during the reception and it was equally as delicious as the cupcakes. Let's just say that cake wouldn't have lasted to our first anniversary, and it didn't! I think my husband and I ate it in 3 days!

Sweet Retreat took a concept we had and made the most beautiful cake! They were actually much more reasonably priced than we originally thought too!

The cupcakes were a big hit at our wedding. We had the red velvet, s'more, and chocolate chunk. They were scrumptious.

Everything was tasty - we had so many compliments on the cupcakes and cakeballs! We were lucky to have some left over to sample the next day! Sweet Retreat was extremely responsive and timely, but even more, their desserts were second-to-none!

Delicious Cupcakes posted 10/7/2013

We had a 6 inch cake and cupcakes set up on a tier and they were beautiful and tasted awesome. Everyone raved about how delicious the cupcakes were and what unique flavors we had. Lauren was a great contact, very responsive and completely transformed my idea into a reality.

Cake posted 9/16/2013

Underwhelmed by the cake. The design didn't pop. The flavor was good, but the design lacked.

We did our mini cupcakes from them and they were great. We tried a lot of cake and these were really great and they will work with you on colors and decorations as much as you want.

Like seriously, the BEST cupcakes you will ever eat!! Lauren was friendly and great to work with. Had a couple of tasting appointments when different seasonal flavors came out. She helped us pick out a candy baseball decoration for some of our items to go with our theme too.

wedding cake posted 11/5/2012

sweet retreat has the most amazing flavored cake/cupcakes! we ordered sheet cake, which was very cost effective without losing the quality and flavors.

the only issue we had was that they did actually brought one wrong flavor, but it was still delicious!

INCREDIBLE cupcakes! posted 10/17/2012

Sweet Retreat has been a super easy vendor to work with for our wedding. Curt was our contact throughout the process & he was available to answer questions and helped the process by emailing me confirmation of my signed documents when we defined the proposal a few weeks before the wedding. Delivery is a set fee no matter how many cupcakes you buy, so it was a little unfortunate for us there since we had a very small wedding, but it was worth it in the end. Cupcakes were delivered on time and were absolutely amazing! Our guests RAVED about them! I’m very happy we worked with them for our event!

Amazing! posted 10/2/2012

This place was fantastic from the very beginning--cake tasting was fun and delicious. They created our cake based off of a picture that we provided and it was perfect and VERY delicious! Everyone talked about it being the best cake they had EVER tasted and I completely agree!

Amazing cake posted 8/10/2012

After tasting and pricing several places, we landed at Sweet Retreat. Curt was very easy to work with, willing to make a custom flavored cake, and pulled off difficult fondant ruffles and sugar flowers that were identical to the picture I showed him. The price was also much more reasonable than several others we met with. The cake flavor was pink champagne with raspberry jelly filling and champagne buttercream frosting. The cake decorations were beautiful, the shade of the cake was just perfect, the raspberry jelly filling was divine, and the cake flavor was out-of-this world. I will be ordering a 6 inch pink champagne cake with raspberry jelly filling on every wedding anniversary! By far, the best wedding cake I have ever tasted!!
