Beautiful, delicious cake!

For our wedding we had a two tier cake with chocolate cake, raspberry preserves, and chocolate mousse on one tier and pink champagne cake, strawberry mousse, and strawberry preserves on the other. Both were delicious, and it was a beautiful cake!

Excellent Experience and Delicious Cake!

We worked with Your Sweet Expectations for our wedding cake. Overall, it was a great experience! We loved the take-away tasting plate that was put together and the worksheet that allowed us to build our perfect cake. The cake was SO GOOD and it looked beautiful.
