Beautiful and Delicious cake
We were set up with Bittersweet through our venue, but it is in our neighborhood and we wanted to work with them anyway. Nancy was so kind, accommodated our requests, and used our special cake topper. The tasting was delicious and we were able to get a funfetti cake, which is not usually listed as an option. The cake was delicious and turned out beautifully. We are so excited for our 1 year anniversary so we can get another cake to enjoy!Sent on 10/23/2019

Delicious, beautiful wedding cake!
Our wedding cake by Bittersweet was included in our reception package at The Metropolitan Club. We worked with Nancy, who was so flexible! We had a great tasting for 4 people and got to try a wide array of flavors/fillings. She helped me design my wedding cake, and I can't believe how beautiful it was on our wedding day! Not to mention DELICIOUS!! The cake was so moist, the flavors were incredible. I had several guests compliment us on how yummy the cake was. We also get a new small cake for our 1 year anniversary, I can't wait for that treat! I highly recommend picking Bittersweet for your wedding cake!Sent on 10/13/2019

Delicious cake and so easy to work with!
We worked with Bittersweet for our wedding cake in October 2019 and it was great! We met with Nancy to do our tasting and everything was delicious- we had a hard time picking just a few flavors! Our cake turned out delicious and we got so many compliments. Plus, Nancy and her team was so easy to work with- we never had to work about a thing!Sent on 11/28/2019
We absolutely love working with Nancy and her team at Bittersweet. Our couples always rave about the cake served at their weddings and we have this team to thank!
