perfect, delicious wedding cake!
Wedding cake of my dreams!!!
Also…. I almost forgot to mention, we had the Triple Chocolate and the Fresh Lemon Berry cake! Both were very loved by our guests and we purchased for 124 attendees (which was or original guest count, but only 105 ended up coming). The only thing I would change would be actually getting some cake! Other than the bite we got for the cutting, Adam and I didn’t get any cake! I guess the guests loved it so much they ate it all!!! Lol
Highly recommend Sweet Cheeks!

Raised in his mom’s bakery, Jeff has years of hidden skills and ideas within his repertoire of baking knowledge. Hoping to see more of the world outside his native Pennsylvania, he trained and spent 20 years working as a mechanic in the United States Air Force.
Now retired from the military, he is our Executive Chef & Chief Flavor Master - lucky for us! He steps into every job with enthusiasm and ideas – OH, how valuable that is, finding solutions with the COOLEST methods of baking greatness! He creates delicious fun, whether he’s force-feeding us new cookie recipes (Oh the pressure!), suggesting more efficient methods for decorating, torching mini lemon meringue pies, or wowing us with his dancing skills in the kitchen.
Kayla has been running the bakery office for many years and is loved by our clients for good reason. Known for her incredibly CALM demeanor on the phone, even with telemarketers, Kayla keeps the office under control daily.
She is also our wonderful Logistics Specialist. Using her ability to source bizarre cookie cutters or figure out ANYTHING technical when none of us cake-brains has a clue. She is our 2nd Cheek in Command and the perfect brain for all random questions.
She is also our “House Vegan. Taste-Tester”
Thank HEAVENS for this savior of computer issues & nonfunctioning equipment! My husband Michael can learn how to fix, build, and kickstart almost anything, and what a blessing to have him part of our team over the years.
Cake businesses require a lot more maintenance than just baking & decorating; think refrigeration, computer servers, printers, and sanity - ALL need maintenance... Thank you, my dearest, for always being the one to step in when lousy cards are dealt!

Such delicious cakes!! Super beautiful creations you will love! Very professional team as well!
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!
