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.

We loved Bijou's Sweet Treats!
Amy was so fantastic to work with! Our desserts were so much fun and so delicious! We wanted something simple, but beautiful and it was absolute perfection! We can't wait to order anniversary desserts from Amy next year! Of all of our vendors, Amy was the most prompt in all of her responses and so thorough in explaining the process of delivery. She was also very flexible when we needed adjustment to our quantities, designs, etc. Overall, we would highly recommend based on fantastic quality, prompt and neat delivery, and excellent communication!Sent on 12/08/2018

Art that tastes as good as it looks
Amy’s desserts are truly works of art, but beyond that, they taste amazing. My guests cannot stop talking about our dessert table from last weekend. If you are in the Luray area, do not look anywhere else.Sent on 10/16/2018

Absolutely loved working with Amy. She was the most affordable baker in the Northern VA region, and on top of that she was the most receptive. She helped us come up with a beautiful design and also catered to our very specific cake flavors. We ended up going for a half of the tiers being chocolate, almond and raspberry and the other half's flavor was Jewish Apple Cake (We gave her the recipe and she made it work and it tasted delicious). Amy delivered the cake and also let us borrow a wood slab for free. The cake tasted amazing and it was stunning. Everyone at the wedding talked about how gorgeous and unique our cake was and how tasty it was. I could not recommend working with Bijou Sweet Treats more. Not only this but the cake testing was so fun and she made three different kinds of cakes for us with lots of small variations. She took the time to explain the implications of each choice and etc and I felt very listened to and important as a customer. We loved working with this vendor and will definitely be hiring them for other events!Sent on 08/16/2018
