    Thank You!

    Carolyn created a beautiful two-tier cake for our small 50-person wedding and it was absolutely perfect. We opted for white cake with buttercream icing and layers of raspberry cream and fresh raspberry. YUM. Many of our guests commented that it was the best cake they'd had at a wedding and I wholeheartedly agree! Carolyn was easy to work with, responsive, and so kind. Highly recommend!

    Your Sweet Expectations's reply:

    Thank you Chelsea! We are delighted that you and your guests enjoyed the cake so much. It was a pleasure working with you.
    Wishing you the very best!
