Hire them!

Words cannot express how much they helped me out. The person I had originally hired to do my cake, canceled 1 month before my wedding and I contacted Sweet It Is immediately, got a response within 5 minutes, and hired them in just a few minutes of talking. It was super last minute and they were so flexible with me! On my wedding day, a winter storm hit, making the roads extremely dangerous full of snow and ice but that didn't stop them from delivering the most beautiful cake I've ever seen and the yummiest I've ever tasted! My caterer didn't show up on my wedding day, we had to eat pizza, but you best believe everyone had their bellies full of cake! Sweet It Is was literally a life saver, I can never thank them enough.

Sweet It Is

Holly is absolutely the most amazing cake designer you could ask for and work with. Very professional and knows exactly how to make your dreams come to light with her talents of designing her work of art in a wedding cake or a cake for any special occasion. I highly recommend Sweet It Is .

Highly Recommend to anyone!

Lori did an amazing job for our wedding. During our initial meeting she lets us try all the cake flavors, icing flavors, and anything else that would go with the cake. My wife has some food allergies and she made an additional cake specifically for her. She didn鈥檛 even charge us for it! She did an amazing job of explaining what different guests may like and helped us set up the best dessert table. The cake looks fantastic too! She is easy to work with, highly responsive, and makes a fantastic tasting cake. I would highly recommend using them for all occasions!
