Have you taken that trip to the countryside yet?
Every year, hundreds of couples get married in the Commonwealth. Hundreds more are traveling through the Virginia countryside from the city to find their dream wedding cake. Making their ways off the highways and interstates, brides, grooms, and their families are traveling along back roads and across tree-lined mountains and into the country to meet with Bijou's Sweet Treats. Not a storefront bakery with pies, cupcakes, and cookies ready for pick up for anyone who enters, this elite cake studio requires appointments to meet with the creative mind behind the elegant, one-of-a-kind works of art carried out through their doors and decorating their social media.
The ultimate place to book and have your dream wedding cake hand-designed, Bijou's is known for stunning cake art that not only looks incredible, but also tastes good. Guests are known to talk about the cakes for months to come and numerous weddings have returned new brides and grooms to the studios doors for a chance to have their wedding cake created by the husband and wife team of Tommy and Amy Chan.
More than just dream wedding cakes and dessert tables, Amy works one-on-one with each couple to figure out the perfect dessert or combination or desserts for their big day. From hand-painted buttercream masterpieces, like Bijou's well-known Dr. Who-Van Gogh cake, to stacked pies and extra large brownies to create a cake illusion for the symbolic cake cutting, to individual and bite-sized French macarons, cake pops, and cookies to involve each couples' favorite treats to make their big day unique and special.
The one-on-one consultation and tasting gives couples a few hours out of the city to take a step back from the crazy race of wedding planning to have a nice, quiet, and relaxed conversation about their vision for their special day. A chance to escape to the mountains for a few hours, breath the fresh air of the Shenandoah Valley, and let the slower pace of the country seep into their mind. This type of tasting allows couples to get a real sense of how important their wedding and happiness is to the team at Bijou's and to provide them with the peace of mind that everything is in hand and taken care of.
As couples wind their way through the Shenandoah National Park or George Washington National Forest, they can unwind and allow their minds to slow and put the hecticness of the wedding aside for a while. Whether coming for a few hours to just enjoy a cake tasting, meeting with the caterer, and a walk down Main Street for some window shopping or to savor a cup of coffee before hitting the road, or, venturing in for a long weekend to truly see and explore the town they are considering for a destination wedding, the Town of Luray provides the perfect atmosphere for anyone feeling haggard and a little overwhelmed from wedding planning. Stay in one of the historic hotels, tour the East Coast's largest caverns, Luray Caverns, or just take a drive or hike along the Skyline Drive for clear views of the countryside, a visit to Luray during your wedding planning is more than just a cake tasting, it's an experience.
Make unforgettable memories in this hidden valley between the Blue Ridge and Massanutten mountain ranges and meet with one of the best cake studios in Virginia.

Beautiful and delicious!
Amy is AMAZING. It is pretty clear just by looking at her gorgeous creations, but then when you taste...wow!!! Not to mention she is so sweet and friendly! Both being teachers, my husband and I did our tasting very early - a whole year out (taking advantage of all the planning we could do in the summer months!). Throughout the following year of planning, we had some ideas come and go, and some other details change as well. Amy was super helpful and flexible with all of it. For our wedding, we did a small cutting cake and then a dessert table spread of cookies, cupcakes, cake pops, and mini pies. She helped us think through numbers and we had the perfect amount of everything! We got SO many compliments about how beautiful our display looked and how delicious everything was! We couldn't agree with those comments more. We are so happy Bijou's took care of our sweets!!!Sent on 07/03/2019

Better than expected!
I am so happy I found Amy and Bijou's Sweet Treats for my wedding!Sent on 06/10/2019
I was really torn between three different styles/looks for my cake. Amy worked with me to get a feel for the venue and our overall theme and helped us tailor the look of the cake so that it fit in seamlessly with the rest of the decor. She listened to our ideas and quickly sketched out a beautiful design right there at our meeting. The final cake looked better than I ever could have imagined. It looked like an oil painting!
Amy's creativity is plain to see - just browse any of the galleries and you can tell she is extremely talented. What you can't see is that the cakes taste just as amazing as they look! We told her what flavors we liked and she guided us to a few seasonal flavors. We ended up going with lemon/raspberry for some layers and chocolate for others; everyone commented on how amazing it tasted.
I would absolutely recommend Bijou's Sweet Treats - I guarantee you will not be disappointed with one of Amy's works of art!
I love Bijou Sweet Treats, they create such gorgeous desserts and they are so tasty!! I always recommend them first because you can't go wrong with them.
Oh my goodness! I love photographing AND eating Bijou's Sweet Treats! Everything is stunning perfection and delicious!
