boxes to us, took the time to plan out our vision and created the most beautiful cake for us. She was so easy to communicate with and made planning easy, including her sending tips on the tasting combinations and the cake table set up.
All of the cakes and icings we tasted were incredible. It was nearly impossible to narrow it down to our final choice (champagne with almond buttercream). Every flavor was perfectly moist and flavorful. At the wedding, our cake was absolutely beautiful and delicious and we received so many compliments, especially for the unique, flavorful taste.
I am so happy we chose to work with Melisa and I would absolutely recommend Sweet by Design to my friends and family!

From start to finish, Melisa was an absolute pleasure to work with! My husband and I began the cake tasting process right in the middle of COVID, so we knew that were not going to have the same experience that most brides and grooms get to have...
when choosing a cake vendor.
My husband and I had tried two other cake bakers before we met Melissa and when we scheduled our tastings, the vendors would have us drive to their store, they would hand us a cling-wrapped plate with different cake flavors, and send us on our way to taste the cake at home. This was obviously not any fault to the vendors as they were trying to remain safe in the middle of a pandemic, but it still didn’t give us the cake tasting experience we had hoped to get.
Our experience with Melisa was a complete 180! Despite everything going on with Covid, she still took the time to meet us outside at a local Starbucks to give us a great tasting! She brought multiple plates that consisted of various buttercream and sheet cake flavors. It was wonderful and the experience felt “normal”. Aside from her samples tasting absolutely delicious, the time she dedicated to us is one of the main reasons we chose her as our cake vendor.
My husband and I order a 3-tier cake, two dozen cupcakes, and 4 dozen cookies (I have a big sweet tooth :P) and the price was unbelievable for everything that we ordered. We really wanted to give our guests a full dessert experience and Melisa delivered! When Melisa came, she set up our entire dessert table and it was stunning. As a bride, I couldn’t have asked for anything more!! Not to mention the desserts were DELICIOUS. There wasn’t much left on the table so that’s a pretty good sign our guests loved the food. I would highly recommend Melisa to any bride and groom looking for a cake baker for their big day! You won’t regret it. ❤️🍰

eached out to several vendors concerning a tiered cookie cake. Melisa not only responded faster than most other vendors, she set up a consultation right away, and made our cookie cake dreams come alive for our best day ever. It was a huge hit and just as good, if not better, than when we had our cookie tasting at our consultation in 2018. Melisa exceeded our expectations when she delivered our tiered cookie cake (within plenty of time), set it up and decorated it with the flowers left on the cake table. We highly recommend her for any special occasion, no feat is too big for this cottage bakery.
