    Awesome service and delicious cake

    The cake was absolutely delicious and Melissa was super easy to work with. We were planning a wedding from Arizona and getting married in Texas which was difficult but Melissa was great, and gave us recommendations that we ended up going with. Our family loved the cake and all her flavors.

    Best Vendor Experience!

    Melisa at Sweet By Design was the absolute best vendor choice for our wedding cakes! She created a custom wedding and grooms cake design based on our personal style, wedding colors, and the style of our venue, and the cakes she delivered for us were literal works of art. And not only did they look amazing, but they tasted amazing! We still have friends and family raving about how delicious the cakes were. You will not be disappointed with her flavor options and artistic vision. She was wonderful to work with!

    Highly recommend

    We loved working with Melisa and Sweet by Design. It was such a pleasant experience from day one. Even when the pandemic hit, she still met us to provide a boxed version of our cake tasting and provided cards recommending certain icings with certain cakes. The flavors were all so amazing it was really hard to decide which one we wanted. Not only that, but she was flexible with changes in cake design and was 100% willing to add a grooms cake later on in the process. We received raving reviews on both the design and the taste on our wedding day. I could not recommend her enough!!

I was one of those moms that just HAD to make her daughter's first birthday cake - no grocery store was going to get my pre-Pinterest vision right! So I took a couple cake decorating classes at a local hobby store, and I would bring my homework into the office where I gained a small clientele. I decided that I wanted to persue baking, enrolled in pastry school, left the corporate world, and Sweet By Design was born. That was over 10 years ago, and the mixer has been running ever since! I truely feel that a great cake has to both look and taste great. Without both of those components, it becomes forgettable. My goal is to provide my clients with a dessert centerpiece for their event that the guests rave about long after the big day is over.
