Though it’s not done often out here on the West Coast, I wanted to get my husband a surprise Groom’s cake for our wedding! I have a friend in the industry, and she said that Sweet Cheeks was the best place for me – I am so happy I listened!

My contact via e-mail was Kristy, and she was prompt, specific, and courteous, which were all things I was looking for in a vendor. I had very specific design ideas, and after Kristy helped me understand pricing, she scheduled me to come in for a tasting.

Choosing to hire Sweet Cheeks Bakery is the easy part – the only complicated part is deciding on flavors! I met with Elaine, who is charming and amazingly helpful. She even sketched out my Pac Man and Ms. Pac Man design (using a variety of colored pencils), and took very specific notes to ensure the bakers and designers understood my wishes. She even gave me the excellent idea of using books in lieu of a cake plate! I chose some well-known financial and leadership books from home that really described my husband, and they made for a colorful, personal addition to the presentation.

After much tasting and deliberation, I selected the Vanilla Bean Sour Cream cake, with a filling of Cinnamon Spiced Cream Cheese, and the Pistachio Butter Cream Frosting (which is very subtle). I cannot recommend the Cinnamon Spiced Cream Cheese enough – it definitely MADE the cake, and added such a wonderful flavor.

The ladies at Sweet Cheeks were an absolute joy to work with, and their product was simply incredible. Everyone at our wedding loved looking at the “Pac Man Cake,” though only a select few got to try it. ;)

This bakery is absolutely worth the money – give them a shot, you will be so glad you did!

Sweet Cheeks did my wedding cake on 9/22 and they did an amazing job baking and decorating my cake! The cake was amazing and I received tons of compliments on how beautiful the cake was decorated. I highly recommend them. They're the best!

We absolutely LOVE working with the Sweet Cheeks team! Their cakes + desserts are not only extremely delicious, but the presentation is wonderful as well. Our clients are always so impressed with how great their dessert table turns out. Since they also also offer cake stands, trays, and platters to rent it makes it that much easier for the client. Communication prior to event is great, and they always deliver on-time the day of events.

Our brides in San Diego have used this company many times and the cakes that come out of here are AMAZING! Great customer service too!

My daughter in law wanted a grooms cake with a Batman theme for my son and she had heard about this company from photographer. The cake was so great and delicious. She had her wedding cake made by them as well, they were great in helping her make that decision.

Sweet Cheeks is the best of the best! They are my go-to bakery in San Diego and working with Lauren always puts a smile on my face. Their cakes are not only incredibly delicious, but they are flexible with customization, able to make literally anything happen in a short timeframe, and go above and beyond for their client's needs. Love love love working with them!
