Our Sweet Memories cake was beautiful and delicious! We chose two flavors (Southern Aristocrat (sweet potato) and Cassata (white with cannoli cream)), and our guests raved about it. We got a little nervous about a month prior to the wedding because communication was a little... Read More slow with the bakery, but they came through for us and we have no complaints.

The wedding cake was part of a package with the wedding venue. We were charged a "design fee" to design a three layer cake that was basically two round layers and one square layer. The cake was delicious after we paid an upgrade charge for the more expensive flavor - but the...

Absolutely delicious! All our guests commented on how tasty our cake was (some even went back for seconds!). They have so many delicious flavors to choose from - we honestly had trouble picking.

Delicious & Perfect Wedding

Sweet Memories Bakery created my dream wedding cake. I came in with a few pictures from Pinterest and was able to pick and choose the decor and flavors for the cake. The taste testing was fun, and delicious! We went with a 3 tier cake with Cassada (Amaretto) on the top and... Read More bottom tiers and Dark Chocolate Cappuccino in the middle. I am very pleased with how it turned out. It looked just how I imagined and tasted even better! I love how they provide a fresh made top tier for our 1st anniversary to share. I'll be looking forward to tasting it again! I definitely recommend Sweet Memories Bakery to any bride!

Sweet Memories Bakery is absolutely delicious! They did both our cake and our catering for our wedding.

Good Cake, Bad Execution

When I met with Danielle, I was pleasantly surprised: she sketched the perfect cake that was exactly what we wanted, and the cake tasted great. I was also sold on the fact that I didn't have to freeze my top tier, they would bake an anniversary cake for us on the first... Read More anniversary. So, we went with Sweet Memories. Unfortunately, Sweet Memories did NOT follow-through with what I was expecting from such a well-known and well-reviewed bakery. Our cake was fairly basic (no fondant or intricate details or colors), just white buttercream frosting with white piping "lace-like" swirls and accents. On the top tier, I wanted my husband's and my first initials (M and N) separated by a big ampersand (& sign). Danielle sketched the design, and assured me she knew exactly what to do. On the wedding day, my cake arrived and read "MEN" in all capital letters... There was no ampersand, and nothing resembling an ampersand on the cake, it was definitely just an "E," and our last name does not begin with "E." My event coordinators called the bakery, and were told that "this is what the sketch design shows," so it became obvious that there is a serious disconnect in communication between the designers and the decorators. Danielle obviously did not decorate the cake herself, and did not inform the designers that the symbol she drew was an ampersand. There was no, "I'm sorry for the miscommunication" or suggestion to fix the "E," only "that's what's in the sketch." Luckily, my event coordinators were awesome and took a fondant fleur des lis from the back of the cake, and placed it inside the "E" to make it not look so obviously like an "E." Then it came time for the one year anniversary cake- yay! I was looking forward to some good cake. I would think that they look back at the sketch of your wedding cake and attempt to model the top tier, or at least put something resembling your wedding cake on the anniversary cake. Maybe a "Happy Anniversary." I picked up our cake, and it had RED fondant poinsettias on it...? So, I get it, we got married in December (early December), but my wedding cake was completely WHITE with NO fondant flowers at all and NO Christmas decorations? My anniversary cake is a Christmas cake. Needless to say, I was very disappointed in the fact that they didn't even bother to look back in their books and see what they made for us a year ago. The anniversary cake was a big reason we picked this bakery, so that we would receive a fresh tier of "our" wedding cake. Well, we received fresh cake, but it's careless and doesn't resemble our wedding at all. To summarize, I would not recommend Sweet Memories if you expect attention to detail in your cake, or even attention to you as a customer when you pick up your anniversary cake. The cake is good, but when I'm paying so much for a wedding cake, I expect it to be what I want. I wish I had read some more honest reviews about this bakery before I booked them, so I hope I'm helping someone else in your wedding plans.

It was such a pleasure working with Danielle. She's very personable, efficient, timely, and accommodating. We came in with several ideas and she turned them into reality. Instead of having one traditional wedding cake, we opted to have several different types of cakes (six in... Read More total). Each was artfully decorated and delicious.

Wedding cake/cupcakes were included in the price of our venue as they work with Sweet Memories Bakery to provide this service. My husband and I met with Danielle at Sweet Memories and had a great time not only tasting over 10 types of cake but sharing fun stories with each... Read More other. She was wonderful to work with and made a delicious product. We went with wedding cupcakes and then the top tier was a cake made out of their Southern Aristocrat cake (sweet potato cake with white chocolate mouse) which Sweet Memories decorated in a buttercream icing and then made dots in the "hidden mickey" to pay tribute to our Disney Honeymoon. We chose 3 different flavors for the cupcakes; Vanilla, Cappuccino and Southern Aristocrat. Each one was more delicious then the next. We received tons of compliments on not only what a great idea it was to have cupcakes instead of wedding cake but how delicious they were as well. We would absolutely recommend Sweet Memories Bakery to anyone and will definitely be going back in the future.
