From the first moment we walked into meet with Bittersweet we knew they were going to help us make our wedding special. Our guests absolutely loved our wedding cake, with not even a crumb left over. Our sweets table was a HUGE hit as well with guests going back multiple times for a small bite throughout the evening. Can't wait for our 1 year anniversary to enjoy our anniversary cake!
