Bittersweet was one of two bakeries our venue contracted with, which we were thrilled about because they are right by our condo! We decided to go with cupcakes and then a small 8 Inch round cake to cut. When we went for the tasting, I couldn’t believe how much they gave us and how HARD I️t was to choose! Everything was so delicious! When we saw our cake and cupcake setup the day of the wedding, we were very impressed! Everyone loved the variety of cupcakes we had. Definitely go with Bittersweet!

We had the choice of two bakeries with our venue selection for our wedding. We chose to go with bittersweet because we felt like it tasted better than the other bakery. We also liked that rather than having us freeze the first layer of our cake for our anniversary, they give you an anniversary certificate to get a small cake to celebrate. Our display cake was actually a faux cake, but you couldn't tell from looking at it! It was beautiful and the sheet cakes they provided looked like they were cut straight from the cake. I would definitely recommend them!
