Evan is truly a talented baker -- and so nice to work with! We ended up ordering a cinnamon brown sugar cake with cream cheese frosting in between the cake layers and buttercream frosting on the outside. The first time I had this kind of cake was during the tasting and it was absolutely delicious! We got so many compliments on the actual wedding cake as well -- all of our guests loved it!Sent on 07/17/2012
Not only are Evan's cakes tasty, but she is such an artist. Her cakes are beautiful, and our cake was no exception. See here for a picture (http://kristengardnerphotoblog.com/allison-kevin-the-regency-at-dominion-valley/) -- you'll have to scroll down a bit.
In addition, Evan was so easy to work with. I knew I could completely trust her (because of the other beautiful cakes she has made for other weddings), which made this part of the wedding planning process so easy! I had a vision for the cake -- it combined elements of two cakes I had seen on pinterest. I showed the two pictures to Evan and she created exactly what I had hoped for. On top of all that, Evan's prices are very reasonable and she's happy to also make sheet cakes to help keep the costs down.
Finally, my husband and I were so excited when we found out that the top of the cake had been saved for us. Evan had mentioned that she could always bake us a fresh cake for our one year anniversary, so instead of freezing the cake, we decided to eat it when we got back from the honeymoon. Best decision ever (and highly recommended!). We look forward to ordering another cake from Evan in a year!
I can't recommend Evan enough -- she is a wonderful, talented baker and such a joy to work with.

My cake turned out Amazing!
Evan was the third Baker I tried, when determining who to choose to make my wedding cake. I’m very picky and she did not disappoint at the tasting! The tasting went very well and we ended up choosing 3 flavors; the chocolate cake with cookies and creme buttercream, the cinnamon brown sugar with vanilla buttercream, and the vanilla cake with vanilla and strawberries folded in.. we told her our vision and the cake turned out just as great as I expected! Excellent job and it matched our cake stand perfectly!! ISent on 04/10/2019
The cake had great flavor and was moist. Guests tore that cake up! Lol.... I would highly recommend =]

Gorgeous and delicious!
We tried a couple of bakeries before choosing Sweets by E for our wedding cake. Our decision was based on both the look of her cakes and (more importantly) the fact that it was the moistest and best tasting cake (by far) that we had tried. I was a little nervous that the cake at the wedding wouldn't be as good as at the tasting, but I had nothing to worry about. We got three flavors of cake and they all tasted amazing! On top of that, the buttercream and flower decor looked just as we had imagined it. I am so glad we went with Sweets by E and cannot wait to get more cakes from Evan for all my future special events!!Sent on 12/28/2018
I've had the privilege to work with Evan for some styled wedding shoots and a styled dinner! Her cakes are incredibly delicious and beautiful! My wife and I just had our 6th wedding anniversary and we ordered a 6 inch naked cake with flower accents and it turned out amazing and we loved it! Evan is very talented. She has great personality. Her passion on what she do shows in her work.
Evan is an amazing baker. Her personality and attention to detail make her standout from her competition. I would recommend Evan for any of my brides.
What a fabulous Bakery! All my brides have loved their cakes! Looking forward to all the weddings we have together! Rick Ricks Flowers Herndon, Va
