    Amazing Service

    I cant say enough good things! Jenni was amazing when it came to communication and willingness to work with us. We live 3 hours away and both work Mon-Fri so finding time for a tasting was tough, but Jenni squeezed us in to her busy schedule.

    Her cupcakes were so moist and airy! It was some of the best cake ive ever had and I absolutely LOVE cake!

    When discussing cake design we discovered it just wasnt the right fit but she was abosutely amazing recommending some people who could make our dream cake design come true.

    AMAZING in every way!

    Jenni was INCREDIBLE! Working with her was such a pleasant experience, I couldn't say more good things about her and Sweet Creations SLO as a whole. The desserts were a hit! Everyone RAVED over how yummy they were. Jenni was so easy to communicate with - quick responses, very clear, honest, and so incredibly helpful for a bride like me who really had no idea what she was doing. She was professional but also so kind it felt like working with a friend. She even came and set up the dessert table the day-of and I never once had to stress over anything dessert related. Also, everything was affordable and she was more than willing to work with our budget. I could go on and on about how wonderful it was to have Sweet Creation be a part of our big day. You can't go wrong with hiring Sweet Creations SLO. I can't thank them enough for what they did. THANK YOU

    100% recommend

    Jenni with Sweet Creations was probably my favorite vendor to work with during my wedding planning! Not only were her desserts delicious, but her prices were very reasonable and she included a lovely display for the items. She was incredibly responsive, communicated everything clearly, and was very flexible up until the last minute. She also gave thoughtful recommendations for other vendors and wedding ideas and was professional yet caring and sincere. I would not think twice about hiring her to do desserts for me in the future. Thank you so much, Jenni!!
