Beautiful and tasty creations!!

We can鈥檛 speak highly enough of Evan鈥檚 cakes! We knew as soon as we tasted her options that we had to choose one for our wedding. The tiered cake turned out even more beautifully than we imagined, and all the guests raved about the combination of the lemon curd and raspberry filling! It was a perfect addition to our day - and we can鈥檛 wait to have more on our anniversary!

Amazing wedding cake!

Sweets by E have just the best wedding cakes around this area. We did tasting in many different places but when we tried Evan鈥檚 cakes it was just delicious! I had plenty of wedding guests saying that the cake was amazing and it was the best wedding cake they had in a very long time! Besides the cake being delicious, the design was also beautiful. I would highly recommend picking Sweets by E, you won鈥檛 regret it!

The best wedding cake ever

Book Sweets By E for your wedding! Seriously. We are both huge dessert fans, so picking a cake that tasted as wonderful as it looked was important to us. Evan created the cake of our dreams, even going out of her way to save us money on decorative flowers. It was the best tasting wedding cake us and many guests have had, and that's really saying something! We're still dreaming about her chocolate cake with oreo filling.

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.
