Bittersweet was an amazing experience from beginning to end. From scheduling the tasting, to the actual tasting of almost everything they make, to delivery and finally EATING it, it was all wonderful. Delicious, moist cakes, beautiful slices, more than ample amounts of cake for everyone to feel full to bursting, and a beautiful and tasteful cake design. The best part for me though was the affordability. I felt like we got $1000 worth of cake for much, much less. Highly recommended!Sent on 09/07/2015

Best wedding cake ever
We went to bittersweet with a special request for a funfetti wedding cake, and they went above and beyond to make sure our cake was exactly what we wanted! I would recommend them to anyone! The cake was delicious, and I scarfed down two pieces for breakfast the day after the wedding :)Sent on 03/24/2019
