Complete ease and professionalism
Our cake was beautiful and delicious! Shawna and her husband were quick to respond via email and were professional and friendly during our tasting. On the wedding day, I was doing so many other things that I didn't have time to think about the cake - they made it so I didn't have to! They showed up on time and met with a member of our bridal party to ensure that all was in order. We gave them an extra bouquet we had and told them to add flowers to the cake in any way they thought worked and it turned out amazing!Sent on 10/13/2019

Very Good Cakes
We were very pleased with the final cake and the grooms cake. The cake tasting was done very well and the entire process from then on was a joy. very simple, and worth every penny.Sent on 02/26/2019

Delicious and Beautiful Cake
Sweet Creations Cakes is a wonderful local operation run by Shawna and her husband. They are quick to respond via email and are attentive to your needs. The initial meeting was at their house and the tasting was excellent. I felt very confident after meeting with them and seeing their work, as well as tasting the delicious cake, that we were going to get the cake of our dreams! And we did!Sent on 10/28/2018
The cake was moist and delicious the day of the wedding and still is a week later! The frosting is fluffy, not overly sweet. A perfect compliment to the flavors we chose: autumn spice with apple filling and strawberry with strawberry filling. Everyone at our wedding raved about the flavors. I'm still getting comments at work about the yummy Autumn Spice flavor. The fondant they use for decorating is different than regular (which I can't stand). This one is sweeter and more edible so we could even enjoy the beautiful decorations on the cake.
Overall, the cake is beautiful and scrumptious. Shawna and her husband did an amazing job replicating what we asked for and even adding in a last minute request for a fondant cat! They are true professionals and their skill was on display at our wedding. I would definitely hire them again for any cake I need in the future!
Oh, and they also include detailed instructions about how to save your top tier if you choose to do so!
Sweet Creations Cakes's reply:Thanks for the great review! We're so glad that you and your guests enjoyed the cake! It was a pleasure working with you.

This is the first vendor I'm reviewing because they were hands-down my favorite! Extremely professional, friendly, sweet and notably hilarious. I didn't worry about a thing after the order was placed. All of the samples we tried were like they were baked pieces of heaven. I would choose this team again in a heartbeat! Highly, highly recommend. (Price was for a two-tier cake)Sent on 07/23/2018

AMAZING! I had other tastings scheduled but after meeting with Shawna, I cancelled them. Every flavor that we tried was so good that it was hard to decide on our wedding cake flavors. They are reasonably priced, easy and fun to work with, and everyone was over the moon about how good the cakes were. We ordered a wedding cake (I do not have the professional photos yet) and a grooms cake (pictured). Easiest wedding planning decision we made!Sent on 06/05/2018

Loved our cake! Incredibly delicious. We couldn't choose between chocolate + nutella and vanilla + strawberry, so she did both on alternating layers.Sent on 11/12/2017

We couldn't have been happier with Sweet Creations Cakes! Sweet Creations was not the first cake vendor that we tried, but, hands-down, my husband and I were so glad that we found Shawna. Not only is Shawna incredibly responsive, very easy to work with, and so accommodating, but her cakes are absolutely dynamite! The uniqueness of the cake flavors, the quality of the cake itself, and...oh my goodness...that buttercream frosting made our wedding cake unforgettable! We could not have been happier with our experience!Sent on 09/26/2017

I highly recommend Sweet Creations Cakes to DC area brides. Our wedding cake was beautiful, and guests kept raving about how delicious it was. Working and communicating with Shawna could not have been easier. Her pricing is very reasonable and straightforward. Once we confirmed the look and flavors of the cake, I put her in touch with my venue coordinator and did not have to worry about a single thing from that point. We took home our top tier and I put it in the freezer after following the clear instructions on the box. Only 356 days until we can open it! Thank you Shawna :)Sent on 08/09/2016

My husband and I worked with Sweet Creations for both our wedding cake as well as a surprise groom's cake and I cannot recommend them enough. During our cake tasting, we were able to get a feel for the spectrum of flavors and textures that were available to us and we also had an opportunity for a fully in depth conversation with the owners, Shawna and Rand. Not only did this discussion convince us that they understood (and cared about!) the Art Deco theme of our wedding, but we knew that we were working with two extremely passionate and gifted artists. In the months that followed, I ended up working with them on a separate, Steampunk themed cake for our wedding rehearsal dinner as well.Sent on 08/07/2016
The end result was nothing short of magical. I have professional bakers in my family and even they lost their minds over how amazing both of the cakes were that Sweet Creations prepared. Not only was each cake was completely unique and absolutely gorgeous, but the tastes were truly out of this world. My husband and I cannot *wait* to order an anniversary cake from this company next year.

The cake was so delicious and the color matched perfectly! It was just as we envisioned and it received many guest compliments. Shawna was responsive, flexible, and clearly passionate about her work. Sweet Creations was just such a pleasure to work with and even though we had to drive from DC to Manassas for the tasting, it was so, so worth it! Highly recommend!Sent on 12/07/2016
Sweet Creations Cakes's reply:Thanks so much, Lindsey! It was a pleasure to work you too!

We researched several cake places, and Sweet Creations was instantly friendly and professional. When we went to taste cakes, we were impressed by the presentation and the flavors, and they even had styrofoam models to show us exactly how big each cake layer would be. They were patient and very nice as we decided what we wanted. On the day of the wedding, they delivered the cake on time, and it was exactly what we had asked for - it looked great and tasted fantastic!Sent on 11/14/2015

Our wedding cake was the best cake I've ever had, ever! We worked with Shawna and her husband to design our cake and choose from their amazing flavors of icing, filling, and cake. They produced a 3-tiered cake where each slice was half vanilla and half chocolate with a different filling for each tier. They even added a design later in the planning stage as a surprise to my husband, and all within our budget! We didn't freeze our top layer because we ate all of the cake, but plan on getting another cake from Sweet Creations for our anniversary!Sent on 12/27/2015

Sweet Creations Cakes and Shawna were an absolute pleasure to work with! We had such a blast visiting the first time for cake tasting and discussion on our wedding cake dreams. They were very easy to work with and provided great feedback to help us create the perfect cake for our big day! We are especially thankful for the prompt delivery, setting up of decor for the cake table, and placing fresh flowers we provided onto the cake. It was absolutely beautiful! They also provided the box set for us to save our top tier. Everything ran very smoothly, and it was wonderful having them deliver and take something off of my shoulders for the day!Sent on 08/11/2015

The cake was absolutely amazing! It was all worth the money paid. We did different flavors for each teir. We are so happy we chose Sweet Creations Cakes. Our guest really loved the cake and the decorations. We would choose them again for any other occasion.Sent on 05/17/2015

Shawna and her husband were such a pleasure to work with. I really have no complaints! The cake turned out gorgeous - very elegant, just the way I wanted it. The wedding went by so quickly that I didn't even get to eat a slice, besides what I had when we cut the cake! Fortunately, we saved our top layer. I'm already looking forward to eating it on our one-year anniversary. :)Sent on 04/10/2015
Shawna provided us with a beautiful cake at a very reasonable priced that tasted delicious - what more could you ask for?

If I could give a perfect score of 10.....I would!! Shawna, made the best tasting cake for our wedding. There was NO cake left and I ensured her that my husband and I will be using her for other occasions. Shawna you are the best and may God continue to bless you and your business.Sent on 07/17/2014
Elizabeth · Married on 05/31/2014
We loved everything about our wedding cake! At our trial with Shawna, it was so hard to choose which flavors we wanted because they all tasted so good, but we were able to choose different flavors for each tier, and our cake on our wedding day was even more moist and delicious than at the trial! The fondant she used was also the best-tasting fondant we have ever had. Not only was the cake delicious, but it also looked absolutely gorgeous with the sugar rose and cascading petals. We highly recommend Shawna and Sweet Creations Cakes!Sent on 07/28/2014
Heather · Married on 05/24/2014
Shawna is extremely professional and talented! She worked with me to custom create a design that really fit the theme of my wedding. Her cake is delicious and her icings (including her edible fondant) are superb! Yum! Highly recommend her!!!Sent on 06/09/2014

Shawna was great! The cake was exactly what we wanted, I only wish I had time to eat more! I loved all of her flavor choices. We chose three. One was a vanilla cake with strawberry filling, almond cake with raspberry filling, and our top layer was funfetti! She was flexible, and very responsive to emails or calls. She was soooo nice and had tons of pictures of her own work and different ideas, cake shapes and sizes on display so you really got a good idea of what you were ordering!Sent on 06/14/2014

In the midst of all the activities going on on our wedding day, I had not seen what any of the decorations and cake looked like when everything was pulled together for the reception. As soon as I walked into the reception and saw the cake for the first time, my jaw dropped. I was in complete awe with how it looked. It looked EXACTLY like the picture I gave her with an edible cascading flower down the side of the cake. Absolutely stunning. Thank you Shawna!!!Sent on 05/07/2014

Shawna was great to work with and her cakes are delicious! My cake was exactly how I pictured it and I loved every bite! I got three layers (one was chocolate and vanilla with cream filling, the other was yellow cake with strawberry filling, and the top layer was carrot with cream cheese filling) all of which was so yummy!Sent on 03/19/2014
