Hi I’m Melanie, I run an intimate business from my home and will work closely with you to design your dream wedding cake. I offer delivery and set up for all cakes to make your special day a little less stressful. I prefer to work with buttercream icing, fondant is used only on request. I can offer cake decorations in either fondant form or fresh i.e. real flowers, I will work with your florist to ensure a fresh, non-organic flower is used that will be perfectly safe on your cake. I work closely with the bride on design, flavors and fillings. My work is not limited to wedding cakes, I have done grooms cakes, bridal shower cakes, baby shower cakes, birthday cakes, I have a cake for every occassion. Read less

While I liked Melanie very much I had issues with my cake. Things went great up until the wedding. She is very responsive and easy to work with and willing to do whatever I liked for the cake. She even gave me two little sample cakes for the taste test (so cute!). I think my issue was an isolated incident but would hate for this to happen to anyone else. The day of the wedding I came into the room and noticed my cake was crooked. My friend who was helping out said that when the cake got there it was in pieces and needed to be toothpicked to hold it up. Also when we went to eat it I notice that the strawberry and creme layer I requested was not present, only the lemon layer and that instead of the filling we had agreed upon it was some type of a nasty marshmallow type texture. EWW! I didn't even want to eat my own cake : (. I called to Melanie the next day and she was very apologetic. She said that the night before the wedding the first cake was to heavy with the strawberries and collapsed so she had to remake it the day before the wedding with just lemon. While I appreciate she was sorry I would have liked a call the day before the wedding letting me know what was going on and letting me make the decision about the cake flavor. She claimed the issue was due to the humidity but it was only about 80* that day and not humid at all. I don't understand what went wrong ( twice) and the two layers of cake were things she offers so it's not like I asked for something crazy that didn't work. She did give me 175$ back off a 400$ cake for 115. In retrospect I think I should have asked for more back but oh well.

So in conclusion, Melanie is very nice but the cake did not turn out a promised. She said to me this has only ever happened once before to her, but now having happened twice ( and really three times if you count that both my cakes collapsed) I would be nervous as a bride to use her for my wedding.

I highly recommend Chesapeake Sweets if you are looking for a wedding,shower or any occasion cake. Melanie Schwartz made my daughters shower and wedding cakes. She was very attentive as we gave her descriptions of what we wanted...and she quickly knew exactly what we were envisioning. The wedding cake turned out beautiful!! It was perfect! We were so pleased and our guests couldn't stop talking about it. She did an incredible job! Most wedding cakes I've tried at other weddings were beautiful but didn't taste all that great....Melanie's cakes are so delicious! The icing is to die for!! Loved working with Melanie Schwartz and her wonderful sense of humor kept my stress level down!! She went above and beyond in so many ways to help us make my daughters wedding day perfect. And it was. You can't go wrong here folks!

Melanie of Chesapeake Sweets made an amazing buttercream wedding cake. I was more worried about taste than looks, but not only was it delicious, it was also beautiful! A lot of m guests said our cake was the best wedding cake that they've ever had. She is very flexible in design and flavors, and gives you the option of alternating flavors without an additional cost. Melanie was also very responsive to my design ideas and is very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend Chesapeake Sweets to anyone looking for any type of cake...wedding, birthday, anniversary etc.

Melanie made us the most beautiful wedding cake..and it tasted great too! :) We gave her several pictures of cakes we loved and she created one that incorporated all of our ideas. She let us choose several cake flavors and the tasting was a lot of fun! We had many tiers of different flavors, buttercream frosting with red roses between each layer. She was fun to work with and very professional. She welcomes any ideas/comments you have during the process and has great suggestions to offer as well. Our cake was set up on time and looked amazing. HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for a cake!
