Swedish Bakery provided the wonderful cake for our 85-person June 27th wedding reception at Loyola's Palm Court. We'd heard great things about the bakery and it was close to our church and reception venue. We worked with Lillian who was extremely professional and responsive. The tasting alone was amazing! I am a big sweets person and my husband and I went with his parents for the tasting. What a treat! We were able to "build" our cake by filling in a diagram of what we wanted in the various layers. Lillian also gave us a few options to choose from and the price was reasonable for such a high quality cake. Our cake was layers of vanilla sponge, strawberry preserves, vanilla custard, fudge cake, raspberry preserves, and chocolate mousse and it was absolutely divine! It looked and tasted incredible. We also opted to serve our top tier and take advantage of a coupon to come back on our anniversary and get a fresh mini wedding cake made. It will be hard waiting that long! I highly recommend Swedish Bakery, you will not be disappointed!

I was so happy to have the Swedish Bakery do our wedding cakes. We wanted to do a cake table with 10 smaller cakes and one mini wedding cake. Lillian totally listened to what we wanted and made thoughtful suggestions about how best to do it visually and logistically with serving it. She was great at helping us calculate exactly how much cake we would need, and was very responsive throughout the easy planning process. And, I can't forget about how absolutely delicious the cakes were!!! We chose 3 different flavors and all were just fantastic. We got so many compliments about how tasty the cake was. The cakes ended up looking very elegant the day of, and I loved them!

We used Swedish Bakery for our wedding cake. The cake itself was beautiful and exactly what we designed with Lilian; however, we felt the taste of the actual cake on our wedding day was disappointing. We ordered vanilla cake with lemon filling as well as chocolate cake with salted carmel/chocolate mousse filling and felt the flavors were muted and the cake was somewhat dry. It was also the least complimented aspect of our wedding from our guests. We really liked the bakery and the cake tasting we did, so we were somewhat disappointed day of, especially for what the cake cost us.

I used Swedish Bakery for my wedding on 09/28/13 and they were great! I had a different vision for my wedding, and didn't want to go with the traditional wedding cake. I got a Kransekage (traditional Swedish Wedding cake), a Croquembouche (traditional French wedding cake), and petit fours, kind of a sweets table. We picked 4 different kinds, and they were all delicious. They organized a tasting for us, and answered all my crazy bride questions, they changed a few things for me last minute with no complaints or upcharge, and were really good about helping me with portioning and how many things to choose, as I had no idea. Everyone loved the food, they delivered it on time, and everything looked beautiful. Plus since a few people didn't show up, I had left overs that I ate all the following week. Yumm! They were super responsive in all my emails, and flexible with payments, which any bride can appreciate. I will definitely recommend them to future brides.
