I've used Elite Sweets for other occasions, so it was a no-brainer to use them again for my wedding cake. They were willing to work with my husband and I to customize a design in our wedding colors and it came out beautifully. They make buttercream look as good as fondant, so you don't have to have that icky taste!

And the cake itself - delicious! I loved the fact that we could order different flavors per tier (because who could pick just one of these fantastic flavors?). Several guests said the cake was one of the best they'd ever had, and asked me for the name of the bakery. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Elite Sweets, and I'll definitely be using them again, especially for our complimentary one-year anniversary cake!

We ordered a smaller 2 layer wedding cake with Cookies and Cream on the top and white with Raspberry filling on the bottom. Both were delicious. The cake only served 75 and we had a party of 100, but we had a desert bar, so a smaller cake was sufficient. We were able to pick up the cake and deliver it ourselves, saving on the delivery fee, since it was only 2 layers. A 3 layer cake would have required a delivery and assembly. I ordered the standard buttercream frosting, which was delicious and spread on sooo smoothly. It looked like fondant icing. They added 2 ribbons to the cake (which I supplied) at no cost. Their cakes are very light and fluffy, and they give you up to 4 sample cupcakes for free to help you decide on flavors. Yum!

I decided to check out Elite Sweets for my daughter's wedding cake after sampling cake from another bakery that was recommended by our reception hall. I was so glad that I did! The cake from Elite Sweets was so delicious that I not only ordered the wedding cake but a cake for the bridal shower as well. I went with the White Alpine and Strawberry Shortcake, which were both equally delicious. Rose was so helpful when I showed her a picture of the cake that my daughter wanted, and she made suggestions for the color of the fondant ribbon to give it a special touch. The girls in the shop were also very helpful with any questions that I had. The cake was so beautiful, I only wish that we didn't have to cut it so early in the reception so it could have been displayed longer. I would definitely recommend Elite Sweets for your wedding cake!

Elite Sweets created both my gorgeous 3-tiered wedding cake and my handsome hubby's Cincinnati Reds inspired groom's cake. The prices were great, and both cakes looked fabulous and tasted even better! Rose was absolutely AMAZING to work with. The cakes were so delicious, my hubby and I couldn't wait until our 1 year anniversary to get our complementary cake. We ordered another mini cookies n' cream cake as soon as we returned from our honeymoon!

Bride, please don't be afraid that just because they have a series of "stock" cake designs that you can't get something custom. Those are just really idea and the cake decorator was very nice to work with. My only minor concern was she said she would call me to confirm minor design details and I didn't get that call. That being said, the cake still came out looking and tasting amazing. Price was comparable to other bakers I checked out in the area. I love that you can go in and sample any time. All of the flavors are good. We enjoyed the "tasting" cupcakes and are looking forward to our anniversary cake.

WOWZA! Best cake EVER! Hands-down, most delicious, smooth, creamy concoction we ever tasted! They have all different fillings and mousse, and even their normal buttercream tastes lighter than all other other cakes we tried. They were GREAT with their prices too! Every time we were in town we stopped by for the free samples, and I just ordered 3 of their 9" tortes for Easter! Our wedding cake and groom's cake looked gorgeous (they made my vision come to life - seriously!), and they tasted EVEN BETTER! Oh my goodness, my mouth is watering right now. Anyway, highly recommend them for ANY occasion!

I used Elite Sweets for my wedding cake and I found it to be the best value around. The cake was delicious and they have many flavors to choose from. They are also very reasonably priced and you get a lot of cake for the money. The staff was very professional to work with and I was very happy with the way my cake looked! I chose the sugar crystal so it was sparkly and very beautiful. I highly recommend Elite Sweets.

Excellent-tasting cake! They were willing to do a slight variation on one of their torts so we could have it as a wedding cake. They also covered ours in ganache, so we had a chocolate-fest for our most special dessert. Also, they do not recommend freezing the top layer for your first anniversary, as the cake doesn't really keep all that well. Instead, they will make you a tort cake gratis when the day comes around! Very generous of them.

Our cake was beautiful and absolutely delicious, so Elite Sweets did a great job on that. They were not, however, the nicest people to work with. I live out of state so I made an appointment to taste cake and pick a design while I was in town one weekend. The people in the shop and the baker were reeeeeeeeeeally rude to me when we came in and we couldn't understand why. We had made an appointment and told them why were were coming, but they still seemed angry about it. Eventually their attitudes got better and I felt ok about using them for our cake...

Elite Sweets makes the most delicious tortes in the Detroit area!
I live in Grand Rapids, but am originally from the Detroit area. My family gets Tortes from Elite Sweets for just about every special event, and I love them so much that I had my sister drive them across the state for my wedding.
We did not want a traditional wedding cake, so we opted to do a dessert table. We ordered several tortes, and many of their mini desserts. They were wonderful to work with, and were willing to decorate all of the tortes in our color theme. They looked so beautiful.
If you do opt for the traditional wedding cake, it includes a torte (the same flavor as your cake) on your one year aniversary so that you do not have to freeze the wedding cake. I think that is terrific.

So good. We've always used Elite Sweets for family functions when we needed cake. But our wedding cake was absolutely awesome! It was decorated beautifully and our guests thought it was the best cake they'd ever have (Cookies and Cream & Strawberry Shortcake). What's even better is that on our one year anniversary they will make us a new cake replicating the same flavors and design... how great is that?!

They're cake tasted great, and everyone at the reception was pleased. They were helpful in giving us samples when we arrived. However, I wasn't really pleased with the cake topper scenario. I had to make a trip out to show them the cake topper, and they just told me to leave it on the table at the reception. I felt like it was a wasted trip. Other than that, I was very pleased.

I was pleased that Elite Sweets was willing to copy a photo I brought in from the Knot and adapt it to our wedding colors. The cake arrived and looked JUST like the photo. The cake tasted amazing and was beautiful to look at. They offer a cheaper sheet cake option if you wish to purchase only half of your cake in the fancy wedding cake style and keep a sheet cake hidden in the back for the other half.
The value was great, and the cake tasted AMAZING. I was so glad we had leftovers to take home.
I agree with the other reviewers that the staff was not the best to work with. They called me several times the week before the wedding asking what I wanted. Sampling cakes is also difficult, since they require you to keep calling in every week or so and asking what types of cake they have available to sample.

We were very pleased with our experience with Elite Sweets. The cake was delicious--we received many compliments from our guests who thought the cake was both excellent tasting (we served 3 flavors: Lemon Raspberry, Chocolate Raspberry Chambord, and Cookies n' Cream) and excellent looking. Although Elite Sweets had many attractive designs to choose from, we asked them to recreate a design we had seen in a magazine and color match our color samples. Rose (one of the designers) was very helpful and patient with us. She did a great job making our cake look as close to the magazine design as possible and we received many compliments on how unique and beautiful our cake looked. The owner was also very helpful and came to help setup our cake himself to ensure it looked just right. We were happy with the way it turned out and it looked perfect in our venue. Prices here were very reasonable compared to other bakeries in the Metro Detroit area and we were very pleased with the end result and would recommend Elite Sweets to anyone needing a wedding cake. (FYI: the Godiva cake flavor was incredible--we'd definitely have chosen that one if we had tasted it before we had to make our flavor decisions!!)

OH MY GOD, this cake was the best slice of heaven I've ever had!!!!!!!!!!!! The cake was perfect, and they even called me to see how heavy my cake topper was, so that it wouldn't fall into it! Brian called me several times after I started changing flavors and sizes, etc. But we finally got it right! I screwed up and didn't call 2 weeks ahead to give them a final head count, so we were short a few pieces. I think some people wanted to lick the cake stand, it was that good! We got the bailey's irish bavarian cream filling, with chocolate and vanilla cake, with a white chocolate shaving icing. It was to die for. NO REGRETS THERE! I think my guests are now devoted customers of Elite Sweets, too!

They deliver, but, they don't take credit cards, so bring your checkbook!

I was extremely disappointed in the cake that I purchased. It was the most unattractive wedding cake I have ever seen. The two layers were completely misproportioned and were not assembled straight. Though I gave them 10 yards of ribbon they failed to put the bows on as I asked (and confirmed) that they do. I showed them my cake topper (they had it in their hands) and they said they would prep the top of the cake accordingly. (They do not keep or add toppers.) When I received the cake there was a hole in the top; completely inappropriate for the topper they had seen! I had to fix the frosting myself before placing the topper on. When we called they put my mom on hold for at least 10-15 minutes and argued with us about what we had ordered rather than apologizing or trying to fix the problem. I will say the cake tasted delicious, but otherwise it was a complete disappointment.

Elite Sweets makes the most delicious cakes ever. They let us try so many flavors before deciding on three. We were so happy with the way the cake looked and even more happy with how it tasted. We had about 50 extra slices in case people wanted to try two flavors; it was completely gone at the end of the night!

We decided to be untraditional and have cupcakes instead of a cake for our guests! They were the best cupcakes I have ever had. They also did a small traditional cake for us to cut that was chocolate gnache and it was delicious as well. I went to them only a month prior to my wedding and they fit me into their schedule and set up my cake and 350 cupcakes as well. This is now the only bakery I use and it's located an hour away from my home!

We got our wedding cake here and because I'm not a cake person, but my husband is, we merely picked one of their specialty cakes out of their cases and had them tier it. It was probably the most amazing and different looking wedding cake we'd ever seen. But, then again, it was also the cheapest and least maintenance cake ever! They're wedding cake prices I don't know anything about, but their other cake prices are very reasonable and we received a full cake on our 1 year anniversary from them for free. Highly recommended!

OMG if you want an amazing cake that both looks and TASTES good then this is the place for you to go. I have been getting cakes here for 10 years! Birthdays, Just Because, Mother's Day, WEDDINGS! They have the most beautiful cakes you will ever see. Not to mention the cake is NEVER dry or tasteless but the complete opposite. They have about 30 different flavors of cakes plus seasonal cakes too. They also have tarts, pies, cookies, cannolis, the list goes on. The only downfall is that they are a bit pricey. But for my personal taste it was worth every penny! You cannot go wrong with them and they are super easy to work with and know their cakes. Any recommendation they have listen they been in business for a long long time!
