    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.

    Thank you, Kimberly, for the sweet words! You and Tyler were wonderful to work with, and I wish you both all the best!

    Melissa is wonderful

    Melissa was such a pleasure to work with! She made my vision of my dream cakes come to LIFE!! She is so sweet, professional and an amazing baker! She gives great suggestions and advise. She helped with the pairs of our flavors. Everyone loved the cakes and they went soo fast! I only got the little piece when we did the cake feeding. 🤣 I am so happy with the results and I would definitely boom her again. If you want someone that is dedicate, puts hard work and love into your cakes, Melissa is your girl! Thank you again so much for making my day so special. 💗

    Incredible experience and AMAZING cake!

    The Sweet by Design cake was one of our very favorite parts of the wedding planning and the wedding! From inquiry to receiving tasting boxes to the day of, Melisa was a dream vendor to work with as she went out of her way to deliver the tasting boxes to us, took the time to plan out our vision and created the most beautiful cake for us. She was so easy to communicate with and made planning easy, including her sending tips on the tasting combinations and the cake table set up.

    All of the cakes and icings we tasted were incredible. It was nearly impossible to narrow it down to our final choice (champagne with almond buttercream). Every flavor was perfectly moist and flavorful. At the wedding, our cake was absolutely beautiful and delicious and we received so many compliments, especially for the unique, flavorful taste.

    I am so happy we chose to work with Melisa and I would absolutely recommend Sweet by Design to my friends and family!

    Sweet By Design's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words, Holly! I am so glad that you and your guests enjoyed the cake. You and Brett were a pleasure to work with, and I would be happy to help you two in the future! Congrats!

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.
