I didn't bother to research bakeries for our wedding because I knew I wanted Sweet Mandy B's! A lot of wedding cake is so dry but not at this place. It was super easy to work with them to order multiple cakes with different flavors and fillings...
. Over the phone, I ordered a three-tier lemon cake with raspberry preserves, yellow cake with chocolate buttercream, and a small gluten free cake with fresh berries, and two vegan cupcakes for around $800 (super affordable for Chicago wedding). The decoration on the tier cake was simple white frosting and our florist put fresh tropical flowers on at the venue. Everyone raved about the cakes!!! They also give you some cupcakes to taste test before you order!

A few helpful details: SMB's tasting was super easy, I called ahead and we picked up their standard tasting sampler of 6 popular flavors with 2 additional I requested, then picked up the cupcakes and their information packet. SMB's doesn't appear to do business over email, so I had to call them every time to discuss my order, but they were very accessible and I didn't mind having to call instead of email. Also, we selected a design with ribbon on the bottom of each tier, so I purchased the ribbon and dropped off at the store a week or two before the wedding.

de later. We set up a time to come in for a complimentary tasting and consultation which was a treat in itself. An associate talked us through the packages and what we wanted for our wedding day, had us taste test tons of flavors (we got to take home leftovers!) and helped us design our sweets table which ended up being made up of a myriad of cookies and cupcakes as well as a small cake for us to cut. We were able to choose a cake design we liked off Pinterest and their pastry chefs brought it to life beautifully. Sweet Mandy B’s even let us adjust our order quantity when our RSVP’s started to come in which was really helpful since we had overestimated our guest count and they helped us come up with a reasonable amount of treats for our guests without being pushy. They delivered our desserts seamlessly day of and our sweets table was a huge hit, with guests devouring all (literally ALL!!) of the desserts we had ordered (we ordered 120 cookies and 120 cupcakes for 130 people). If you’re looking for an authentic Chicago bakery with amazing flavor and variety, look no further!

Sweet Mandy B's is one of my favorite Chicago bakeries and they did not disappoint for our wedding!
There was a little rocky start as I had been communicating for approximately 4+ months regarding booking my cake order for our May wedding. We...
did a tasting earlier than needed around November and settled on SMB for our tiered wedding cake. I was ready to place my order soon after our tasting. However, we were told to place our order 2-3 mo prior to our wedding and this would be fine. I started communicating again in February regarding our end of May wedding and then within a week or two I was told our date had booked up! Luckily, they were able to squeeze us in, but had they not, I would have been sorely disappointed. There was no need for this added stress as I had made my decisions and was ready to sign up/pay months prior! I wish they had just kept me posted that the date was booking up and I needed to put my deposit in ASAP or allowed me to place my order months prior as I had intended!
Anyways, despite the rocky start, everything after that went without a hitch! We did a small 2 tiered cake with gold leaf foil and it was exactly what I wanted! We ordered lemon cake with vanilla buttercream and almond cake with vanilla buttercream (which is not a standard tasting flavor) and they were both amazing. All of the guests were raving! Because of a unrelated snafu, we had a lot of excess cake left, which I took to work. Many people came up to me and told me it was the best cake they have ever had. I tend to agree!! I have used SMB for birthdays and other occasions and am happy that I was able to use them for my wedding. I will continue to be a loyal customer!

Instead we had to spend $145 on a private messenger service, which is more than I think delivery directly from bakeries usually costs. But the money we saved on the cake still made this a value compared to many other places.
Also free tasting of THIRTEEN cupcakes!

We did red velvet cupcakes-amazing. They are great with price and great in taste. We also did a small 9 inch cake for the top of the cupcake stand which was also red velvet as well. It was equally as yummy!

We used Sweet Mandy B's for our wedding mini cupcakes - everyone loved them! We did a bunch of different flavors - all amazing! When we went in for our tasting, they let us try 16 different flavors of actual cupcakes. Don't eat before you go...
We also chose to do a cupcake cake that we could cut at our reception. Everyone loved that idea and it was something we could freeze for our one year anniversary.
The only negative is that they don't deliver so we had to have someone pick up the cupcakes in the morning and drop them off at our venue.
Overall, very awesome!

We LOVE Sweet Mandy B's and we knew we had to have them at our wedding. We tried almost every other cupcake place in the city (there's a lot), just to make sure there wasn't somewhere else out there that did a better job. There wasn't. Cindy wa...

Best wedding cake ever! I didn't want the dry cakes that are used to make monstrous wedding cakes. I didn't mind that my cake would be on the small side, but it was so rich and moist that my guests asked for more!
The only reason Sweet Mandy...
B's gets a "4-rating" for service is that they do not deliver. Therefore, I had to bribe one of my close friends to take on this responsibility. I would have paid an arm and a leg for someone from SMB to deliver!

We have always loved Sweet Mandy B's cupcakes. We went for a cake consultation and knew that this was the place.
Their cake is just as good as their fabulous cupcakes. We had a small wedding cake - just two circular cakes - one vanilla and...
They were willing to work with our design specifications - simple and modern and incorporating our colors.
The price was very reasonable, but they do not deliver, so you should make sure that you have someone who can pick it up. The cake comes safely packed for transport.

My husband was in charge of all the details for our wedding cake since he loves sweets, but we were really hoping to pay under $600 for a cake. He found Sweet Mandy B's and we set up a tasting. It was the first place we visited for a cake and t...
he last! The tasting was absolutely amazing. We were given 12 different cupcakes with different flavors and frostings to try. Needless to say, we took most of them home to sample later and give away but it was so much fun! All of the flavors were delicious, the cake was moist and the icing was perfectly flavored. After we talked more with the coordinator at Sweet Mandy B's and we received a price quote for our cake we were sold! Three layers, each layer a different flavor (strawberry, carrot cake, and snickerdoodle) plus a large yellow sheet cake all for under $300! The only problem is, they do not deliver the cake so we had to have family members pick it up between the ceremony and reception and take it over to the reception venue. They said it was easy to carry and transport the cake and luckily, it came over in one piece. I think you really save a lot on cost due to the fact that they do not deliver and they don't do much with the design. We just had a simple design on the cake and asked our florist to add flowers to each layer, but it turned out absolutely beautiful and our guests raved about the flavors! I am so happy we went with Sweet Mandy B's and I will go back again and again for more cupcakes, cakes, cookies, etc!

i'm a big fan of sweet mandy b's. they have the best cupcakes in town. to save money and to have a desert that tasts good i chose my favorite cupcakes. the wedding cakes i looked at all looked amazing, but tasted only ok. so i thought to myself...
"do you want something that looks great, is very expensive and tasts only ok" or "do you want something that looks good, is (compared to a cake) really cheap and thats amazing?".... no brainer. everybody loved the cupcakes!!!

Sweet Mandy B's made us a fantastic cake that our guests actually enjoyed eating! We did a layer of cinnamon cake and got so many compliments on the choice - it was gone in a flash. Ordering was also a lot of fun. We got to sample all of the...
ir cakes and frostings and that was definitely a plus :). To top it all off, the whole cake was reasonably priced. Only one caveat - they don't deliver. We picked ours up and brought it home successfully, but it depends on what time constraints you're dealing with on the day.
