amazing! posted 11/6/2014

I wanted to surprise my fiancé with a groom's cake at the rehearsal dinner (didn't want another cake at the wedding). He absolutely loves the University of Kentucky basketball. So I looked around to find someone who would be able to create a 3D cake in the shape of a basketball with the UK logo. This place was fabulous! They sculpted the cake into almost a whole basketball and it tasted just as good as it looked. Basically it was perfect and everyone was surprised and in awe. Sweet & Saucy was super easy to work with and even delivered the cake to the restaurant for me. If my reception facility hadn't provided my wedding cake I would have used them for that too!

Delicious and Beautiful! posted 11/2/2014

We had our wedding cake and dessert spread made by Sweet and Saucy and our contact was Cortney. We decided to go with them not only because of how tasty their desserts are, but because they are one of the few bakeries that specialize in dessert spreads as well as cakes. We had so much fun at our tasting and it was so hard to pick our favorites! Everything they make is SO good.

After our tasting, we decided to add a dessert and change quantities on another one. We called Sweet and Saucy a couple of times to discuss it and oddly, they just didn’t answer their phone. We did finally get through to make the change, but when our first payment was due and we were sent the invoice, it reflected the original order. When we pointed it out, they were apologetic but their reasoning for the mistake was that they were just so busy, which didn't feel like great customer service. We had the same difficulty reaching them via phone to pay our final balance a few weeks later.

The day of the wedding, the cake and desserts were delivered without issue and we did get the correct order. The cake and desserts were beautiful and the buttercream frosted cake withstood the warm October day with ease. Everything was exceptionally delicious and we got many compliments from our guests on how much they loved the cake and all the desserts.

Despite the mishaps with the ordering and payment process, I would definitely recommend Sweet and Saucy for your wedding cake and dessert needs!

Made my vision a reality posted 8/18/2014

I worked with this shop mainly over email since we were having an out of town wedding. They were very attentive, listened to my ideas, and translated vision into reality. The cake was beautiful, delivered to our reception venue on time, and the guests loved how tasty it was. Thank you!!

Delicious! posted 7/20/2014

My experience with Sweet and Saucy was fantastic! We went to their location in Newport Beach, and the staff there was always friendly. I ordered a beautiful rustic butter cream cake with a custom sugar flower for my wedding. The total price was below my budget (yay!) and I loved how they let my husband and I make each layer of the cake a different flavor! It was so fun and unique and tasted absolutely delicious!

Our entire wedding was themed around Hello Kitty and Stitch (bride loves hello kitty and groom loves stitch)...so when we went cake tasting and saw Sweet and Saucy's cake pops, I knew I had to have them! I asked for custom Stitch cake pops (they had done Hello Kitty before) and they were willing to give it a try.

They turned out so cute and they all went so quickly at the wedding! Everyone loved them and were very impressed by the design and the flavor! Such a fun idea.

Yum desserts! posted 3/30/2014 (modified 3/31/2014)

We ordered a variety of mini-desserts for our dessert buffet. The key lime tarts are so delicious! Sweet & saucy worked with me on custom desserts as well! Prices were reasonable, and items were delicious! Guests couldn't wait to try some, and the macarons were the crowd favorite!

Delicious and Unique! posted 12/13/2013 (modified 12/14/2013)

Probably everyone's favorite part of a wedding is the cake and desserts, so we knew picking our bakery was a big task! I am not really a fan of cake, so we knew we wanted to do something less traditional, and Sweet and Saucy was the perfect fit. We had mini pies, macaroons and mini cupcakes, as well as a small cutting cake. From our first consultation, to the delivery and set up, everything was smooth and easy. We also rented the cake stands from them to complete the look. Our guests raved about the desserts!

Looooved our wedding cake! posted 10/30/2013

My fiance and I got a pumpkin wedding cake from Sweet & Saucy and it was incredibly delicious! We also received COUNTLESS words of praise on how yummy the cake was. Seriously, everyone loved it! The cake also saved well for a week or 2 after and we happily enjoyed it. The bakery also created a gorgeous cake that was exactly what we had envisioned. I'd totally recommend them to anyone!

Cake and desserts posted 8/28/2013

Sweet and saucy is definitely delicious! We did have a bit of a debacle since they were moving locations when we called to verify a couple weeks out (we never got the three week out phone call from them) and their phones weren't connected and their computers were down! That was a but nerve racking, but with that being said the desserts wete a major hit. They were beautiful and delicious. Also, keep in mind you have to have someone collect and clean up all cake and dessert stands after the reception and take them back the following week. You pay a pricy set up and rental fee, but this doesn't include clean up and returns.

We found Sweet & Saucy shop from both a referral from our wedding coordinator and also notices she was responsible for most of the awesome cakes featured in Abby Larson of Style Me Pretty’s debut book. We had gone to 2 other cake tastings before Sweet & Saucy and were floored by not only how tasty everything was but how beautiful.

Our guests are still talking about how amazing our dessert table was – from both taste to beauty. We had a 3 tier rustic cake and then an assortment of desserts – each one mora amazing than the last – cake pops, mini crème brulee shooters, mini cupcakes and macaroons.

If you are on the Westside, don’t overlook them because they are in Long Beach. I have used Cake Divas and Vanilla Bake Shop for other events and found Sweet & Saucy to be even better. They had the most interesting flavors we found and prettiest presentation in terms of their cake stand offering. We would recommend them to anyone.

I can not say enough about S&S! We wanted something simple and I don't know how they did it but our simple cake was anything but plain. It was so elegant and clean and beautiful.The staff were really cool and didn't try to pressure us. Their flavor options are super fun and unexpected but reminded my husband and I of the treats we loved as kids. I never in my life thought I would ever order a cookies and cream cake but it was literally the best thing I've ever eaten!

Absolutely delicious... posted 4/9/2013

And oh-so-charming! My mini cupcakes and bridal cake were both gorgeous and delicious! Our cake table was a huge hit! I was a little nervous since my husband and I went with very nontraditional flavors - but all our guests went bananas over them! Every single flavor was incredible. The communication during the booking process was great and Cortney was on top of everything (even perfecting our exact shade of coral). They deserve every single accolade they've ever received and its obvious why they are so popular.

Truly professionals who use great, quality ingredients. I had a last minute guest-count explosion and they were able to accommodate my change with no problems. They have a nice selection of cake stands for rent. I will definitely be going back to this shop for future cake needs!

Absolute BEST bakery choice! posted 9/24/2012

When it comes to dessert, I don't miss a beat. It's more than just a weakness but an obsession with me. So for my wedding I knew that I had to have my dessert table be the highlight of the evening. I definitely wanted more than just a cake table and I wanted an full, pretty and indulging display of yummy desserts.

I looked at quite a few options in the LA and Orange County area but then I came across this lil gem in Long Beach (which was perfect because our wedding was in Long Beach) called Sweet and Saucy Shop. I discovered them on a blog and as I dug deeper into what this lil shop was all about my mouth was watering!

I went for a tasting and I knew at first bite that this was the place for my wedding dessert table. I was beyond impressed and happy with the way it all came out and how it all tasted. My guest would not stop complimenting my choices for our dessert table and by the middle of the night all the desserts were gone and the cake was devoured.

Since I didn't have too much time to really enjoy the dessert table the day of the wedding, I ended up going to the shop the next day to get some desserts for myself.

I couldn't have chosen a better place and I'm so happy we got Sweet and Saucy shop for our wedding.

Yum! posted 8/7/2012

Our wedding cake and cupcakes were delish! The only problem that we encountered was that our cake melted (it was over 100 degrees in the shade on our wedding day!) but it still tasted great!

Best cake in town! posted 12/27/2011

We had cupcakes at our wedding and used Sweet and Saucy Shop. They were great, Really easy to work with. I wanted funfetti cupcakes for our wedding. Other bakers would not do it, They did and they were so yummy!!! We chose three different flavors to have funfetti, Chocolate peanut butter and Red Velvet. Our cake that we cut was a giant cupcake that was funfetti cake. They were a hit and people are still talking about how good the cupcakes were. Highly recommend them!!!

Good Desserts, But Overpriced posted 12/16/2011

I used Sweet and Saucy Shop in my wedding because they came highly recommended. What I found was that the tast of the cake and the mini desserts was good but not great and that the price was outrageous. My cake was very plain and simple but still cost over $900 for 120 slices. The price would have been almost the same if I had an involved cake design. So I would use them if you want a crazy fabulous looking cake but not for a normal or simple cake. To save on cost I had my mom make the mini cupcakes.
