    Delicious desserts and wonderful to work with!

    Sweet Chef is an absolute gem! We first discovered her for a last minute elopement cake for a family member and have since only used her for our dessert orders for events- elopements, baby showers, and bridal showers! She is wonderful to work with- so flexible with great ideas. Her cakes, the cupcakes are my favorite, are so delicious. Make Sweet Chef your go-to baker, you won't regret it!

    Sweet Chef's reply:

    Thanks so much Rachel! I loved working with you as well. You are so easy-going...a dream client! Thank you for including me for your special events!

    Amazingly Delicious

    I found Dominique/Sweet Chef when we were on the hunt to find someone that could make sugar free desserts for our wedding. My now husband is diabetic and I wanted him to be able to enjoy the desserts on our wedding day. The second we tasted the sample provided by Sweet Chef we knew she was the one! Since then we have purchased several orders of cupcakes from her, she also made our wedding cake and cupcakes. She is very professional, very responsive and everything she makes is simply beautiful. She is very talented and I am so thankful to find her! I can not recommend her enough and will certainly use her for all of our dessert needs.

    Sweet Chef's reply:

    Thank you so much Robin for the wonderful review! I thoroughly enjoyed making goodies for you before the wedding and grateful that you were such a joy to work with during the wedding process. Can't wait to make more treats for you and the hubby (when he gets his sugar free spice cake cravings lol)

    Amazing Experience

    Chef Lewis was absolutely amazing. I had to change my date multiple times due to Covid and the whole time, she was completely understanding and worked with me throughout the whole process. The flavors we chose were Vanilla Bean, Strawberry with White Chocolate, Chocolate with Coffee, Lemon with Raspberry, and Cookies and Cream. The cake and cupcakes were absolutely beautiful looking and she did everything in her power to make sure it matched my colors and theme (which they did perfectly), and everyone LOVED all the flavors. It was a beautiful surprise coming in to my reception and seeing her amazing work. If I run any form of event, I would 100% absolutely order through Sweet Chef again. Thank you so much for making my wedding magical!

    Sweet Chef's reply:

    I am so glad I was finally able to make your wedding cake and cupcakes! It meant a lot to me having been your baking instructor and knowing you for so many years now. Good luck in your new adventure in FL!
