    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!

    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!
