    Best Red Velvet Cake Ever for MD microwedding

    Would give 10+ stars if I could! Highly recommend! Delicious, communicative, punctual, exactly what we wanted! We ordered a 1 tiered red velvet cake with Italian cream cheese buttercream icing and blush sugar roses. It was absolutely delicious!! Very moist, not too sweet, and easily fed 15 people with plenty of leftovers. I also ordered adorable heart-shaped sugar cookies with “Mr. & Mrs” on them and “with love” on others in green icing and pink, rose gold, white, and silver sprinkles as favors! They were so cute and tasty! Meghan was very communicative despite me living in England and organizing a wedding in 2 weeks back in Maryland during covid! She sent pictures of the sprinkles for me to choose from and worked with me on a simple cake design based on my Pinterest find. So grateful and definitely recommend!

    Perfectly tasty

    So if you want to have leftover dessert to take home after the wedding, dont hire Meghan because that will not be thing. I really struggled with finding a baker because I had little interest in cake or cupcakes, so finding Sweet & Savory Bake Shop felt like a sign. The variety Meghan offers is some of the best in the area. We went with the fruit tarts, 2 flavors of cheesecake bites, and 2 pies for a dessert table spread, plus a small cake for cutting but she offers so much more than that! Everything was ridiculously delicious! My guests loved the cheesecake bites in particular, but literally the only thing I was able to take home was our wedding cake and a small box of tarts. Everything else was devoured! The cake was moist and my icing picky husband loved it! At the tasting everything tasted fresh and authentic. Meghan was so easy to work with, and a steady presence as I navigated postponing our wedding. She was flexible and very reassuring! If you want a dessert spread that your guests will remember pick this bake shop!!

Meghan is fantastic. She's so fantastic, in fact, that I had her make the cake for my own wedding! She listens to what you want and it's delicious.
