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!

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.

The cake was delicious, everybody said so, and pretty to look at as well. It was difficult to choose the design as well as the flavor because Swedish Bakery has so many awesome options. Jacquie was very patient with us as my husband and my mom looked to me to make the decisions, and all I could say was, "I don't know. I love them all." It was jacquie, too, who gave me ideas as to where to find my somewhat unorthodox choice of cake topper (a tree). In the end, the cake was delivered on schedule and looked and tasted amazing. What more could a bride ask for?

The cake turned out beautiful and tasted great. My only comment was there were 2 little studs put in the middle where the topper was to sit. These actually made the topper very unstable or wobbely. We served the cake outside which was a bit windy so we were really worried that the topper was going to fall over on the flower. There should have been 3 or 4 studs for it to sit on.

It is always hard for me to walk by the Swedish Bakery without stopping in for an unplanned indulgence so there was no doubt I made a beeline for the bakery when it was time to plan the cake. Jacquie was wonderful helping come up with a concept since I didn't have any style in mind. When the caterer asked who was doing the cake, she responded, "Oh the Swedish Bakery? That's great because those taste as good as they look." And she was right. Everyone raved about the cake and we caught a few people sneaking seconds.
