    Delicious Cake and Smooth Process

    Waynette is wonderful to work with. We did a four-tier sour cream white cake with raspberry filling and buttercream icing, and it was as delicious as it was pretty. We wanted something classic and fairly clean-looking/ simple, and Waynette delivered on that perfectly. Plus, she is an exceedingly pleasant person to work with and is super flexible and accommodating. She even placed the sugar flowers for us when she delivered the cake to the venue, and she let us borrow her silver cake stand without charging us or anything! We just had to drop it off at her house the day after the wedding. Her communication was also excellent. For example, she went on vacation about a month/ month and a half before the wedding, and she reached out to me beforehand to let me know exactly which days she'd be out of pocket so I wouldn't worry if I didn't hear back from her for a few days. Overall she is just really thoughtful about making the whole process smooth for her clients, which I appreciated so much (especially with 10,000 other things happening!). The cake was lovely, super tasty, and I felt that the pricing was extremely reasonable for what we got. I'd definitely recommend Sweet Promises, as we had a great experience.

    A masterpiece

    Waynette is one of the sweetest people I had the opportunity to work with in helping with my wedding. She was very patient and extremely helpful! She took my ideas and created a masterpiece! Our cake was beautiful and delicious. Waynette also made us key lime cupcakes with frosting on top in the shape of flowers. Amazing in every way

    Best cake ever!

    Waynette was very easy to work with! We were planning a wedding from Florida and she made it very easy when ordering a cake and planning to taste test! My husband and I raved about our cake! (Seriously, we've been dying to eat the top portion that we saved! haha) It was the best cake we'd ever had! It was a simple design and so beautiful!!

    Tastiest Wedding Cake!

    We had done some tastings in the Asheville area before we found Waynette of Sweet Promises. At the last minute, she squeezed us in and did a tasting with us in her home. Her cake was absolutely the best tasting cake we tried during our trip! She had so many flavors to choose from that we could hardly decide - we ended up with Butter Pound and Almond. Her cakes are beautiful but also tasty. At our reception the cake disappeared in minutes. Guests said it was the best wedding cake they've ever had!

    Amazing cakes- a year later!

    Waynette was incredible! She was very nice, helpful, and really understood the style and look we were going for.
    I'm writing this review a WHOLE YEAR LATER because we did the tradition of saving the top of the cake to eat for our 1-year anniversary... AND IT WAS STILL JUST AS FRESH AFTER BEING FROZEN!!
    We opted for the almond and the chocolate, and they were delectable.
    I also highly recommend the pink champagne- IT IS WORTH THE UPCHARGE!

    We chose the sour cream white cake with raspberry filling and the key-lime cake with buttercream fillings for our wedding day tiers after a wonderful cake tasting with Waynette. They were both absolutely delicious, and I will never forget the look on our flower girl's cake when she saw the cake we cut was lime green on the inside. It helped us make our day a little more unique.

    Sweet Promises, aka Waynette, are truly AMAZING! Honestly, my husband and I are so happy with our choice - from start to finish. Every single flavor she offers is delicious! We had a four tier cake, 2 of the butter pound and 2 of the pink champagne and people were drooling over it. She is beyond talented and her prices are so reasonable!! The baker herself is completely dedicated to the wedding cake - case and point: Waynette had a last minute emergency the day before our cake tasting (keep in mind, we came in from out of town) and she still had all the tastings and everything set up for us regardless of everything else she was dealing with. She is so nice I felt like we were family - related to some wonderful baker! Definitely use her! We had no leftover when they estimated a whole round cake to be remaining! Luckily our sweet Waynette had our anniversary cake set aside already - she thinks of EVERYTHING!

    We used Sweet Promises for our October wedding and couldn’t be happier! Waynette was so sweet and knocked our wedding cake out of the park! I have never seen a more beautiful cake that tasted so good. We would certainly recommend Sweet Promises to all our friends and family. Thank you for being a part of our big day!

    Waynette is such a doll! We planned our wedding out of state and she worked with our schedule and let us into her home, out of which she runs her business, on a Sunday (this is the south yall) for a tasting. We got the almond cake and it was mind-blowing. I cannot wait to have more on our anniversary! She delivered and worked with the florist and was incredibly flexible. The cake was beautiful!

    Waynette did a fabulous job! The cake got so many compliments on tastiness and beauty. She was really great in consultations about leading us to a really ideal cake design and all I had to do was leave the cake decorations/toppers on the table at the venue for her and she arranged them beautifully. Will absolutely order again from her for any events in the area in the future! Can't wait to have my top tier in a year!

    We had a small elopement style wedding, and our florist recommended Waynette and her cake making skills to us. I am so glad she did. The cake was not only exactly what we wanted and looked like the picture I sent her, but it tasted out of the world amazing! Since it was a destination wedding we did not have an opportunity to sample the amazing sounding flavors, but went with the white sour cream. Our best man admitted he ate five pieces. We saved the top layer for our first anniversary, and I can not wait! If you're looking for a wedding cake, look no further than this. Thank's Waynette! :)

    Sweet Promises wedding cakes are absolutely the best!! We got married August 20, 2016 and Waynette made our wedding cake and a grooms cake. They were absolutely delicious and many people have said it was "the best wedding cake I ever had!" Not only were the cakes delicious, they were beautiful and flawless!! So much better than I could have ever dreamed!!

    A few months earlier we went to a tasting. Waynette runs the business out of her home and the tasting was in her dining room. We felt so welcome from the second we walked in. My husband even talked football with waynettes husband during the tasting! She had so many delicious flavors to choose from! Being a summer wedding, we chose 2 flavors for the wedding cake, sour cream white and pink champagne with her amazing buttercream. For the grooms cake we had buttermilk chocolate. It was such a hard decision on cake flavors because they are all so good!! I think any choice we made would have been amazing!

    The planning process was a breeze. Waynette let us take our time and look through pictures of all kinds of cakes so we could design the perfect cake! Never once did she rush us! She even met us on a weekend for the tasting and planning as we are out of town. She was very quick to respond to emails and checked in with me periodically before the wedding.

    Waynette and her husband delivered the cake on the wedding day and she got the flowers from the florist and made her masterpiece. It belongs in a magazine in my opinion.

    I would, without a doubt, recommend Sweet Promises to any bride!! You will have the prettiest and best tasting cake! Plus, you will get to deal with Waynette, who is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet!!! Thank you so much for helping to make our dream wedding come true and being a part of the best day of our lives so far!!

    Because we live in Seoul, South Korea full time, we planned our entire Asheville, NC wedding from there. As a result, clear and efficient communication was of the utmost importance to us in our vendors. Without a doubt, Waynette has to be the most responsive person we've ever had the pleasure to work with! We value responsiveness highly and were always amazed at how quickly she responded to our emails and how thoroughly she answered all of our questions. We ordered a small 7" top cake with 12 dozen cupcakes (vanilla with vanilla buttercream frosting) and they were gorgeous and perfectly displayed on a cupcake tier which she generously lent us and picked up on her own after our ceremony! Talk about customer service! We were wondering what they would taste like as we hadn't had a chance to taste test, but they tasted great! Her cupcakes were a big hit at our wedding and we took the leftovers to our Day After Brunch the next day where people eagerly ate more! She even surprised us by baking us a small anniversary cake (extra) for us to freeze and eat on our first year anniversary. You won't regret working with Waynette and a big thank you so much to her for helping to make our big day so special. :)

    So happy we had Sweet Promises for our wedding day. Waynette did a groom's cake for us, a birthday cake and our 4 tier wedding cake. She is so sweet and amazingly talented. The tasting was so hard because everything was good! I have a gluten allergy and STILL ate her cake because it is that amazing. We did strawberry, chocolate kahula, and sweet creme as our flavors. You can't go wrong!

    Sweet Promises was amazinl! Waynette allowed us to come into her home for a tasting. She had a wide variety of flavors, icings, and fillings. She had a large photo book of her work for us to look through and allowed us to completely create our own wedding cake design. She even sketched it for us and provided us a paper copy of what it would look like as well as a cost analysis so we knew exactly what to expect. Waynette followed up several times via email and phone prior to the big day as well. Our cake showed up at our venue as scheduled and she even did some of the intricate decorating on site to make sure that it didn't get damaged during travel. She was also very accommodating in terms of putting fresh flowers on from the florist the day of the wedding. The cake looked spectacular, but it also tasted amazing! I would recommend having her do butter-cream icing she can do wonderful designs with it and then you have the beauty as well as good taste.

    Waynette is a talented and wonderful baker! Make sure that you get a tasting because all of the different flavors are fantastic! Waynette took her time to make sure we ordered the cake that we wanted. I personally went with the sour cream chocolate and vanilla cake flavors with buttercream icing. It was so delicious!! The work on her website speaks for itself. She is definitely a great wedding professional!

    Working with Waynette was such a pleasure! She was very attentive and quick to respond to all my emails during the planning process. She was so helpful and professional! We ordered a sports themed rehearsal dinner cake and a "naked" wedding cake. We were so blown away by both cakes. Not only were they delicious but they looked so perfect! My unique request for a naked cake was exactly what I envisioned and more! I highly reccomend this shop if you are getting married in the Asheville area. You cannot beat the price or quality!
