Everything about our experience from the tasting to the wedding was fantastic. The cake was moist and delicious. My only regret is that I did not have a chance to try both flavors.

Nancy was very responsive and kept me apprised of the delivery plan.

I love that we got a certificate for a fresh cake on our 1 year anniversary, no stale cake story in our future! :)

The cake turned out beautifully and tasted even better! The cake tasting was amazing, so many options to choose from. They were very flexible and even allowed my mother and in-laws to join the tasting. We chose a sweets table and was not disappointed with any of the options, I just wish I could've taken some home!

Nancy and her team were absolutely incredible. She followed up with me on all details and was steps ahead of me with logistics. The desserts at this shop are the BEST in Chicago and they made our dessert table so special. I cannot recommend enough!

We worked with Bittersweet to create cake pop place cards for our wedding this June. Nancy, who I worked directly with during the process, was great. She was extremely responsive and even offered to attach all the name cards for us when the cake pops were done. The cake pops were delivered by Bittersweet to our venue on time on the day of our wedding which helped us get them set up on the place card table without any stress. Most importantly, the cake pops were delicious and were a huge hit with our guests. We did two flavors - vanilla and fudge – and we had so many people mention the cake pops in the weeks following the wedding. They were the best that we've ever had. I’m glad that we ordered a few extras just in case, as my husband and I got to enjoy several of them the next day. I would highly recommend Bittersweet to anyone looking for high quality bakery treats.

Nancy was wonderful to work with. Although Bittersweet wasn't one of the listed vendors at the Blackstone, the Blackstone was able to accommodate our request to work with another vendor. The tasting, the cake, Nancy etc. was wonderful!

Bittersweet was an amazing experience from beginning to end. From scheduling the tasting, to the actual tasting of almost everything they make, to delivery and finally EATING it, it was all wonderful. Delicious, moist cakes, beautiful slices, more than ample amounts of cake for everyone to feel full to bursting, and a beautiful and tasteful cake design. The best part for me though was the affordability. I felt like we got $1000 worth of cake for much, much less. Highly recommended!

The BEST!!! Very responsive with all the questions and delicious/beautiful cake! What else can you ask?? They also give you an anniversary certificate for the cake so I don't have to freeze the top layer. We couldn't have been happier with the look and taste of the cake!

We had cake tastings at three different bakeries and Bittersweet won hands down. Not only did their cakes taste amazing, but the price was reasonable, and they didn't have to use fondant to make it look pretty. We provided the cake topper and cake stand to them ahead of time and everything arrived perfect the day of the wedding.
Sometimes the cake tasting process is overwhelming and you don't know where to start or what a "normal" cake/filling/icing combination is. But Nancy was super sweet and helpful, she gave us suggestions, gave us space to try things at our own pace, checked in on us, answered all our questions. It was such a fun experience and their cakes were just sooooo good. We ended up with two flavors: 1) banana cake with dark chocoolate mousse and salted caramel drizzle and 2) hazelnut cake with vanilla bean brulee and raspberry preserves. We got so many compliments on our cake during the wedding through now (weeks after the wedding). I'm already looking forward to our one year anniversary where we get to go back and get a complimentary cake from Bittersweet. No freezer burned cake top here!
P.S. - Banana cake is a good density smooshable cake for anyone who plans on smashing cake on their loved one's face. I'm going to do it every year. Muhahahahaha!
