Sweet Expressions has been making wedding cakes for the past fourteen years in the Albany, NY area. We book about two or three wedding cakes a weekend, just enough to keep your experience personalized, stress-free and just perfect. Our cakes and icings are made using the freshest ingredients, are trans-fat free and are never frozen. We use REAL butter, creams, sugars, eggs, fruits, nuts and premium chocolate to make our cakes, fillings and icings. Gluten free, egg-free and vegan cakes are also available.

Let the last taste your guests have at your reception be the best!

Our prices are all inclusive and include any flavor cake, filling and buttercream or fondant icing. No additional charge for design work. You may also have each tier be a different flavor without an additional charge.

Take a few minutes and browse pictures of our recent work at www.amymears.com. You may just find the perfect cake or find a few that might be best when "married together". Feel free to bring in a picture of a cake you love that you've found on-line or in a magazine .

Amy's services were contracted as part of our venue expense so we hadn't initially selected her ourselves, but I didn't complain when I saw her 5-star reviews or when we met her and loved her calm demeanor. everything was perfect. She provided beautiful and delicious cupcakes as well as a good-sized cutting cake that was designed exactly as we requested. She was very thorough and her cakes are delicious. She met with me twice prior to the wedding (once for a tasting and to go over some ideas and again to finalize our vision), and I (rightfully) never worried once about what would be delivered on the day of. Thank you Amy!

Amy is a joy to work with and her artistry is beyond reproach. The cake she prepared for us was a huge hit at all levels, it was beautiful and delicious. She worked very closely with us to get the exact design and was more than happy to accommodate our request that two grooms be represented in the cake design. I can't say enough about this service and highly recommend them.

Amy Mears of Sweet Expressions is a fantastic cake baker! We were so happy that we went with her; the cake was absolutely delicious and picture-perfect beautiful. She is responsive and very professional. In addition to having a lovely 4 tier cake (with 3 different flavors!) she also made lovely pink cupcakes. I plan on using Amy again for my parent's upcoming Anniversary....she's that good! Totally worth it.

Amy was incredible!!! I gave her a picture of the cake we wanted (prince Williams& Kate's cake) she said she could replicate it. Not only did she replicate it but it was delicious! When people were being seated they got up and went over to take pictures of the cake. I would recommend Sweet Expressions to anyone who wanted a beautiful and delicious cake. Thank you Amy:)

We HIGHLY recommend Amy and Sweet Expressions! Amy was easy to work with and had so many delicious flavors to choose from. We decided to do cupcakes rather than a wedding cake and our guests LOVED it! They are still talking about the cupcakes! Shortly before the wedding, we increased the number of cupcakes so we had extra to box up and give away to our traveling guests the next mornng. They were thrilled to get another cupcake! Many thanks to Amy for making some VERY delicious memories!!

We loved working with Amy and Sweet Expressions! She went above and beyond anyone else we met with. All the cakes/frostings/fillings we tried were amazing and there were so many choices. She made it a really fun experience and the end result that was delivered at our wedding was just wonderful - both beautiful (and exactly the design we discussed) and delicious. We would absolutely recommend Sweet Expressions for any event cake.

Amy was amazing. I really wasn’t sure I even really wanted a wedding cake and went in thinking we would just do something small for the tradition of it, but after meeting Amy that idea changed. My mom and I went for a tasting and everything was so yummy we couldn’t decide. We ended up doing a three tiered cake all different flavors. It was beautiful and many of our guest said it was the “best wedding cake they have ever had.” It’s not often that you get a good looking and great tasting cake at the same time. Amy was so easy to work with and she did and amazing job. I would highly recommend her.

The whole thing was perfect! The cupcakes and anniversary cake were colorful and attractive, delicious and not too sweet-just right! We made some very specific requests back in the summer when we made the order, such as making the cake on top look like it was covered in birch bark, and Amy surpassed our expectations. Amy helped, in a very important way, to make our wedding and reception very special and worry free. Thank you so much!

Amy is absolutely AMAZING!!! She was able to do everything with our wedding cake that I wanted and more!!! I don't know where to start with all of the wonderful things that I have to say about her. She is so friendly and easy to talk with and was always super fast returning my e-mails and phone calls. She was so accomodating for our tasting. We went to her bakery after hours so there wouldn't be any distractions and were pleasantly surprised by the four giant cakes she had baked for us based on what I told her we liked and didn't like. Wedding cakes are usually pretty bad, based on being a guest at many, however these cakes were to die for. We ended up doing each tier a different flavor because they were all so delicious. Amy never said no to any of my ideas that other bakeries had. She constructed a masterpiece, four tiered hexagon cake with buttercream frosting. She had each tier wrapped in blue or plum roses and each had a crystal in the center. The cake was also adorned with crystals everywhere. Amy never did anything without emailing me a photo or thought that she had. Not only was our cake a work of art, it tasted delicious on our wedding day and the slices were huge. We took the extra cake home and it was still delicious a week later after friends, family and ourselves finally finished it. I could go on and on about how wonderful Amy is and how fabulous our cake was but this would be a very very long review. Let's just say we cannot wait to eat the top on our anniversary. I will absolutely be ordering cakes from Amy for birthdays or whenever a delicious morsel is called for!! Love Amy!!!!

Amy did an amazing job on our wedding day! We wanted cupcakes with a small cutting cake and Amy did not disappoint. From our initial consultation (where she baked 2 six inch cakes for us) through our wedding day, everything was perfect. We were able to select 3 cupcake flavors and add filling to some, as well as our cutting cake for a very reasonable price. All of the cupcakes were absolutely delicious and we received many compliments! Amy took care of the setup as well, and provided a cupcake stand for us to use. She was so laid back and wonderful throughout the planning process. She answered all of my questions promptly and provided us with some great recommendations.

Amy makes the most amazing cakes hands down. The cake is moist and full of flavor and not the least bit oily. The frosting(s) are to die for! The butter cream is rich and the chocolate cream cheese frosting is heavenly. The number of cake choices and fillings are endless. We were able to consult with Amy at Sweet Sues bakery in Troy where she brought us samples of cakes and frostings to try and let us take home the leftovers. Everything was perfect! Thanks!!

Amy is an incredibly talented baker/cake decorator. Her samples were our favorite part of wedding planning, her cakes are moist, incredibly flavorful and will be loved by all your guests. We chose a decorator cake, with sheet cakes in back for service, and the 'fake cake' was a HIT! No one knew until we told them- although our Photographer wasn't pleased when we told her we couldn't cut the cake from
A different angle unless we turned the entire thing around!

Amy was a wonderful vendor to work with. We was warm, friendly and provided us with as many samples as we wanted to try before finalizing a cake choice. Sitting down with her and discussing our needs was a great experience. She also was great about working within our budget and making sure we got everything we wanted just the way we wanted it. I also surprised my husband-to-be with a Groom's cake! She was wonderful about working on those details with me without "spilling the beans" to him (and she was still able to work it into our budget!). My husband and I LOVED the results and the flavors of the cakes were just amazing! She had some of the most unusual and exotic choices and our guests just loved them all! We ended up getting 4 different cakes: Red Velvet with white chocolate mousse (our favorite!), German Chocolate cake with Oreo cookie mousse (amazing!), Lemon with fresh strawberry filling (wonderful and I don't normally like lemon), and Sour Cream White with the white chocolate mousse (simple but delicious). She even threw in an "anniversary cake" for my husband and I to share next year. We had a wonderful experience and we would use her again in a heartbeat. I think the most amazing part is that I normally have "hated" cake and never found a reason to like it until I tried Amy's cakes! I am now a cake lover when it comes to her baked goods!

Amy created a five tier square faux cake for our wedding with nine flavor choices in the kitchen to cut for our 200+ guests! What a fun experience to select flavors, fillings and icings. I think our favorites were the kaluha fudge with peanut butter mousse, sour cream white with raspberry and the traditional carrot cake with cream cheese icing. Sweet Expressions made other desserts for a dessert display including cake balls, truffles, cannolis, tarts and mini cheesecakes! Delicious! We appreciate your responsiveness, dependability and personal service throughout!

This was a GREAT experience having them do the cakes and cupcakes. All the guests were thinking, "it is just cupcakes" until...... they tasted them!!!! I heard so many guests talking about how they went back for more because the cake was so moist, tasty, and like they had never had before.

As for professional, they were great. We had a tasting, we given many options, were kept in touch with, and the day of the event we never had to worry. Everything was set up on time and beautiful!! I highly recommend Sweet Expressions!!!

I absolutely love Amy! She is so sweet and you can tell she loves to make brides happy. She was able to meet us for a tasting late on a Friday night and after an incredibily long day, her appointment was a great way to end! She was able to do 2 flavors for us since I wanted Red Velvet and my husband wanted the White with Strawberry filling (which was phenominal!). Everyone really enjoyed the cake and my husband loved it so much he not only ate his but mine as well :)
The cake came out beautifully with a dark purple bow on top and silver snowflakes all around the cake. I wasn't too sure what I wanted so I just trusted her judgement and was pleasantly surprised!
I can't wait to eat it again in a year (if I can wait that long!)
Thank you Amy!! You really do have the best wedding cakes around the Capital District!

She really explained everything thoroughly and helped me pick the right size etc. She was always very available via email and answered all my questions. She even was able to whip up a custom grooms cake last minute for the rehearsal dinner which was so cool! The wedding cake showed up on time and perfect. It looked gorgeous and it tasted great. We have no complaints and would highly recommend Sweet Expressions!

Amy Mears of Sweet Expressions provided both my wedding cake and grooms cake. I found her through the internet and after speaking with her a few times via email we met up for sampling. She brought with her large slices of all the flavors I inquired about and my mom and I had a great time trying to cake and chatting with Amy. From there we decided on a flavor and went forward. I was planning from out of town and Amy was always very easy to get ahold of via email. She was very flexible when I changed my mind or added different cakes. She explained all the options to me and helped me make informed decisions.

Needless the say the cake was SO tasty, both wedding and grooms cake. They looked great as well. Prices were more than reasonable. I highly recommend her!

Amy was absolutely wonderful!! She made a beautiful cupcake tower for us that included a top tier with cupcakes. The cake was so delicious and it looked amazing. All of our guests raved over it and we're still hearing about it 2 months later!

I think what I loved the most about working with Amy was that she made the process so easy and stress-free. I wasn't quite sure exactly what I wanted for my cake, nor did I end up having a ton of time to really think about it, so I ended up relying solely on her expertise and trusting her 100%. Honestly, the only thing I knew was that I wanted a white cake (with a hint of almond) with a classic, elegant look. That is literally all I said (no other instruction) and Amy was able to create the absolute perfect cupcake tower! It was beautiful.

So, ladies (and gentlemen), if you're looking for someone who is a pro, reliable, super easy to work with, and VERY reasonably priced, choose Amy and Sweet Expressions!! We would hands-down recommend Sweet Expressions to anyone.

Our theme for the wedding was birch tree and I wanted the cake to look just like the bark of a birch tree. Amy was very excited and certainly exceeded my expectations!!! People are still talking about how great the cake looked. Amy also created a red velvet/vanilla swirl cake that was unbelievably moist and DELICIOUS!! I will certainly be recommending Amy to my friends!

Amy at Sweet Expressions was wonderful. To start, she met us at Panera to taste some cake. We mentioned four flavors we would like to try. Thinking she would bring a slice of each kind, we thought we'd grab lunch afterward.
Well, she actually showed up with four 6" cakes!!
Well, they were all delicious. We couldn't decide. So we picked them all. a different flavor for each tier and then the last flavor for a small anniversary cake.
We didn't have to talk much after that. Which is exactly how I wanted it. I paid her. She showed up to the venue, on time, with the cake. It was beautiful. The simple design we had discussed, and it was the right color. It was perfect. And delicious!! A beautiful cake is useless if it doesn't taste good.
So Sweet Expressions can do it all, tasty, pretty cake. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a yummy cake.

Working with Amy was a pleasure. First, she was so easy to communicate with. She prepared three different cakes for us to try...all of them full cakes and we got to take home the leftovers. The cakes were all spot on. They were moist, the butter cream not too sweat and the fillings delicious. We went with her white chocolate cake with white chocolate chips mixed in the batter and then filled with chocolate mouse and her chocolate cake with peanut butter filling. Some of my guests told me it was the best wedding cake they ever had.
As for the look of the cake, it was beautiful. I sent her several pictures with aspects that I like of each. She combined my ideas, emailed me with clarifying questions and then confirmed that it was exactly what I had envisioned. When I arrived at the venue, the cake not only lived up to what I wanted but surpassed by expectations. You can't go wrong with Sweet Expressions.

My husband and I weren't even going to have a cake at our wedding, but meeting Amy is what really sold us on it. She was incredible to deal with from start to finish, and our guests are still raving about the cake. It was a sad, sad day when we finished the leftovers -- but she did package a separate top tier for us to freeze for our anniversary!

We needed a kosher cake, and Amy worked with us on flavors and icings to make sure we were able to get exactly what we wanted. The tasting was, by far, the most enjoyable wedding meeting we had during the entire process. She was incredibly flexible and accommodating, especially when we had a late-in-the-game request for a flavor change. And when I took a break from hair and makeup to say hello while she was baking the morning of the wedding, she sent me back upstairs with some cake for the bridal party, which really started our day off right!

And did I mention how positively gorgeous the cake was?! Her portfolio is amazing, and the in-person product was breathtaking -- and that's saying a lot, given that we weren't even on the cake bandwagon in the beginning. We are so, so glad Amy changed our minds.

When I say Amy is incredible, I really do mean it. We can't recommend her enough.

The cake received unanimously superb reviews for its appearance and taste. So many people came up to us and said, "I've been to a lot of weddings and yours... had the best cake." Everything was personalized from the consultation to the cake flavors, fillings (mocha cream!), and the decorations. We would rather not have another wedding, but if we did, we would use Amy's cake!

Everything was personalized from the consultation to the cake flavors, fillings (mocha cream!), and the decorations. We would rather not have another wedding, but if we did, we would use Amy's cake!

If you are looking for a wedding cake vendor please please please go with Amy Mears at Sweet Expressions. I was in a wedding about 5 years ago and what I remember most about that wedding was how fabulous the cake was. When it came time to plan my special day the choice was easy - Amy Mears of Sweet Expressions.

The wedding cake she did for my wedding was AMAZING! It was even more delicious then I remembered. We have gotten so many compliments on how beautiful it was, how fresh and moist the cake tasted and how delicious the flavors and butter cream frosting was. As we walked around the room we saw many empty plates! Her design for our cake was just perfect and added such elegance and beauty to our wedding.

Amy was such a pleasure to work with. I felt lucky to have found her, she truly made our wedding day special. I can't wait for our 1 year anniversary so that I can have another bit of that wonderful cake (Amy kindly providing us with a top tier to freeze).

Amy did a fabulous job on our wedding cake. I had given her one of our invitations to try to match the pattern on the cake, and what she came up with was amazingly close to our invitations. It was beautiful and so delicious. All of our guests loved it!! Also, one of the best parts of the experience was the abundance of 'sample' cake Amy brought for us to try. We left the tasting with six mini cakes in different cake/frosting combinations--YUM!!! If you want a delicious cake, go with Sweet Expressions you won't be disappointed!

Amy was fabulous to work with. We had her create a white cake with raspberry filling and a lemon butter cream, it was all white with two lavender roses placed on the side. It was simple and beautiful and I have gotten multiple compliments on it, many of my guests said it was the best wedding cake they had ever had.
My husband is not a cake lover, so I had asked Amy to make a "grooms pie" because his favorite dessert is banana split cream pie. When we did our tasting Amy had said that she had never made it before so she did some research and made one for us with direction from her findings.. it was the best banana split cream pie either of us had ever eaten. He was floored that not only did I ask to have on made for him but that Amy went through the trouble of researching this odd request and making something even better than his favorite.
I would highly recommend Sweet Expressions to any bride.

Amy was, by far, my favorite vendor to work with. She met with us and brought 3 actual cakes-not just little pieces to sample- and they were delicious! The cake was incredibly moist and was the biggest star of the reception. The detail was a damask design made out of buttercream, not fondant, and it was absolutely flawless. Not to mention that 3 weeks before the wedding we needed to add an extra layer to our cake, and Amy was perfectly fine with it. Unfortunately, our top layer won't make it to our first anniversary because we just ate it after we got home! Thank you so much, working with you was the greatest decision we made for our wedding!!!

I had to plan my wedding from California to take place in New York. I really did not know where to begin in preparation for such an event that would take place in three months. Amy was amazing. She was thorough and punctual with her responses and meeting my needs in every way possible. She sharred her ideas while listening careful to the needs of my own. She replicated a cake I had choosen in California and brought her own vision to the style as well and the cake turned out absolutely gorgeous. She surpassed my highest expectation and created nothing short of a work of art. I couldn't have asked for anything less than perfection because that's the personal standard she sets for her business. Less is more was the motto that rang true in our personal experience. She worked to meet our budget and what we could afford to do, leaving out excessive unwanted and unnecessary cost. She was really amazing and the cake was so beautiful. I feel lucky to have had her provide our wedding cake for our special day. I would give her a 10 plus rating for meeting all our needs and going way beyond the call of duty. She provided us with an amazing fliorist and guided us through the process of creating the wedding of our dreams. No stress and complete professionalism is what you have to look forward to should you make the choice to go with sweet expressions. Thank-you once again Amy. -Melissa

Amy Mears and Sweet Expressions was an incredible part of the wedding planning experience. I really had no idea going into the cake selection and design process and when I met with Amy, we planned and brainstormed ideas. Her enthusiasm was contagious and she was so creative. Within our first visit we created my vision and when the 'big day' came, the final outcome was beyond my imagination. Amy was also extremely professional and also very willing to go along with my nontraditional ideas for a wedding cake. Besides the ceremony, the cake was one of the biggest hits of the day.

Amy Meara was wonderful to work with and so accommodating. She went out of her way to make my daughter's wedding day as stress free as possible. We had tried several bakers for the wedding cupcakes and her's were miles ahead of the other's in taste, appearance and variety of flavors. And Amy's prices were the most reasonable. The cupcakes were moist and flavorful.
Amy offers her own custom designed decorative wraps to coordinate with the wedding colors and provided a beatuiful stand on which to display them. The display was so tempting, guests kept coming up and asking when the cupcakes would be served. And after the cupcakes were served, then there was a mad rush to trade for the exact variety each wanted.
Often at the end of a wedding there are lots of left over cake slices. At my daughter's wedding, guests were asking for extras to bring home. We ran out, even after ordering 25 extras.
We would highly recommend Sweet Expressions to any bride looking for cakes or cupcakes or any dessert for her wedding.

Working with Amy was a dream! Of course my favorite part was the tasting as she brings giant pieces and you get to take them home! She did exactly what we wanted and even made a separate little cake and wrapped it properly for us to freeze and have on our one year anniversary. She truly enjoys what she does and it absolutely shines through in her work. Thank you so much Amy for making us a beautiful and utterly delicious cake! I will 100% recommend you to anyone who asks!

Well I cannot say enough about Amy Mears cakes, they are absolutely beautiful, fabulous and so delicious. I planned my wedding from top to bottom by myself and I am an extremely picky person when it comes to having a vision and making it come to life. All I had to do was tell Amy what my vision was and give her a little direction and she did the rest. She absolutely brought my vision to life and it was so much more than I could have ever dreamed of!! Our wedding cake was absolutely perfect and we had so many compliments on it after the wedding. Amy truly has a gift and was so easy to work with, very flexible and friendly she made me and my husband feel right at ease. We were able to sample all the flavors we requested and they were all so delicious it was hard to choose. Thank you so much Amy for being a part of our special day and making it stress free for us!! Needless to say I will be using Amy for all of our future cake needs:0)

Our cake was amazing! Amy did a wonderful job creating the look I wanted, based on some pictures, emails, and a short talk we had. She worked together with the florist for the cake's flower decorations and they were perfect (she recommended the florist we used and we loved her too - Yankee Floral). We got married in Altamont, NY, but we live in Pittsburgh. Amy was easy to work with from long distance. She even arranged for us to get a second set of sample cakes on one of our visits to NY because we were having trouble deciding on our flavor combinations (she has lots to pick from). And, most important to us, the final cake tasted GREAT. Her cake was by far tastier than anything else we tried. I highly recommend the turtle filling! I have no complaints about the service we received.

I cannot say enough good things about Amy Mears and Sweet Expressions! When we first started looking for a baker/cake decorator for our wedding cake I contacted Amy and set up an appointment to meet with her and taste her cake. Amy asked us to choose a few different cakes flavors and frosting and even helped us to pick out some good pairings etc. Now most tastings involved a tiny sliver of cake that had been cut from a larger cake or a little cupcake, which I found made it very difficult to get a real idea of what a fresh cake would taste like. That is why we were so surprised and thrilled when at our first meeting Amy had brought a little mini cake in each of the flavors we had chosen. This was great as we were able to bring some back to our families and have them try them as well...and hands down Amy's cake was the one that everyone LOVED. This was just the icing on the cake! I was not any ordinary bride in that I had some very out of the ordinary requests for Amy that she was more than willing if not even excited about doing! Amy worked with me on every little request & detail that I had. She was so incredibly flexible. We absolutely LOVED the flavor of Amy's cakes, they were moist and rich as was the frosting! We especially loved her strawberry cake and the white sour cream cake! I would highly recommend Amy Mears and Sweet Expressions for all of your wedding cake needs!!!

When we first started looking for a baker/cake decorator for our wedding cake I contacted Amy and set up an appointment to meet with her and taste her cake. Amy asked us to choose a few different cakes flavors and frosting and even helped us to pick out some good pairings etc. Now most tastings involved a tiny sliver of cake that had been cut from a larger cake or a little cupcake, which I found made it very difficult to get a real idea of what a fresh cake would taste like. That is why we were so surprised and thrilled when at our first meeting Amy had brought a little mini cake in each of the flavors we had chosen. This was great as we were able to bring some back to our families and have them try them as well...and hands down Amy's cake was the one that everyone LOVED. This was just the icing on the cake! I was not any ordinary bride in that I had some very out of the ordinary requests for Amy that she was more than willing if not even excited about doing! Amy worked with me on every little request & detail that I had. She was so incredibly flexible. We absolutely LOVED the flavor of Amy's cakes, they were moist and rich as was the frosting! We especially loved her strawberry cake and the white sour cream cake! I would highly recommend Amy Mears and Sweet Expressions for all of your wedding cake needs!!! Read less

Sweet Expressions exceeded our expectations. This was more than a wedding cake it was a delightful treat. I have tasted many cakes as a guest at other weddings and they don't even come close to her cakes. Our wedding guest have called us to see who made the cake,they said it was the best cake that they have had in along time. We wish that Amy made other special occasion cakes.

Sweet Expressions made a wonderful 3-tiered cake for my wife's and my wedding reception. We were happy well beyond our expectations. Our favorite layer was the red velvet, which was without a doubt the moistest we've ever had. (The carrot cake was also wonderful.) The cake was wrapped with a beautiful green ribbon (on each layer) and was topped with beautiful, handmade edible flowers that matched our wedding floral arrangements perfectly. The delivery and setup of the cake was also flawless. Thanks Amy for a great job!

Amy was absolutely amazing from our first meeting up through our wedding day. We pretty much had no idea what we wanted for our wedding cake. Amy sat with us and helped us look through books for ideas and then she was able to help us customize our cake. She set up our cake for us at the reception so it was one less thing to worry about. When we finally saw our cake on our wedding day, we were blown away. It was better than I had pictured it. Oh yeah and I tasted great!!! We still get compliments on our cake.

I can't rave enough about Amy, and our wedding cake she did! We had to contact her just DAYS before the wedding, and she was still able to accommodate everything we needed! Best of all, the cake wasnt just gorgeous, it tasted FABULOUS! Normally wedding cakes just "look the part", but taste too sugary, or aren't moist, etc...Our cake was moist and delicious, and the whole party raved abiout it! We also did Amy's cakeballs as a favor for our guests, and everyone loved those as well. She really did do a fantastic job, and I wouldnt get cakes anywhere else now!- Jennifer & Paul Marra.

We were very happy with the wedding cake made by Sweet Expressions for my daughter's wedding in June. Amy met with us to get an idea of what we were looking for and brought us generous samples to taste (and take home). We gave her the cake topper we wanted her to use and she took it from there. In addition to baking the cake (which was delicious) and decorating it as requested, she came up with the perfect stand for it. It wasn't a typical request but she understood what we were going for and came up with a creative solution. Thanks, Amy!

My husband and I would recommend Amy to anyone! We had a cupcake tower that gave the illusion of appearing like a cake. We were not really sure how to do this, but Amy knew and made it look perfect! She is so talented that she just knew exactly what we wanted without any instruction. Amy even went so far as to hand make each white cupcake wrapper so that the tower appeared white even though we chose a chocolate cupcake. She is amazing! As for the cupcakes themselves: one word, spectacular! All of our guests were raving about how delicious they were. We chose a chocolate cupcake, strawberry filling, and whipped cream frosting. So good! My husband and I can not wait for our one year anniversary so we can have our topper.
To summarize, Amy made these decisions so easy for us. We trusted her completely to come up with a tower that we would love, and she more than exceeded our expections!

From the lines I couldn't describe to the flower cascade, Amy nailed it. Honestly, the cake was one of my favorite aspects of the wedding! Only wish I had eaten more of it.

We had so many compliments about how delicious and beautiful the cake was and we look forward to our 1 year anniversary so we can eat the rest! I highly recommend Amy to any future bride and groom, especially if they want their cake to be amazing for low cost!

Amy was wonderful to work with. She was recommended to us by a good friend who got married in May 2008. Amy was very flexible and listened to our requests. As we were working with a tighter budget, Amy was able to give us what we wanted by making a styrofoam cake (with a real cake notch in it to cut for pictures) while having sheet cakes in the back. Not only did we get what we wanted within our budget but we got a work of art. We mailed Amy a scanned photograph from a magazine for our cake design, and although the picture lacked detail, Amy's decorating was beyond what we expected and received many compliments from our photographer and guests! Not to mention that her cake was also delicious to eat. Thanks so much Amy, we're very sad to be giving you back the cake but we'll have the pictures to remember it by. We'll send some your way as well!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Amy Mears of Sweet Expressions. She has a passion, a celebratory spirit for life that translates into her decedent cakes, beautiful design work, attention to detail, and fantastic personality and professionalism.

My now husband and I went to four tastings with other bakers before discovering Sweet Expressions. But I’m glad we did. It just reinforced how amazing Amy’s work is. Let’s be honest, wedding cake has become a traditional necessity and a design aesthetic. At most weddings, the cake is not keeping people at the edge of their chairs waiting for a taste. While it may be beautiful, more often than not, it is dry, bland, and just not worth the effort of eating (or the calories)! And that is what we found at our other cake tastings.

Everything changed the second we tasted Amy’s cakes. They were AMAZING! The flavor was awake and the texture moist and perfect. I wasn’t really a cake person before my wedding. But at my wedding reception, while greeting our guests I kept saying “save room for cake, it’s delicious!”

We even saved our top tier for our one-year anniversary and had it shipped overnight to California where we were vacationing just so we could enjoy it on our trip! And it was still delicious! Again, I can’t say enough, but Amy Mears and Sweet Expressions will be one of the easiest and most delicious decisions of your whole wedding!

Sincerely,
Eva S.

PS Here are the cake flavors we chose:
1. Top and Bottom Layer: Kahlua Velvet Cake with White Chocolate Mousse Filling
2. Middle Layer: White Chocolate Flavored Cake with Espresso Mousse Filling
3. Outer Frosting: Off-White Italian Butter Cream-Meringue

Amy was a true professional. We set up our first meeting, she brought multiple cakes for us to try and they were delicious. I had some health problems throughout the 6 months leading up to the wedding, and she was extremely flexible and always available via phone or email. We sent her a copy of our invitation and she used that design as an inspiration for the design on our cake - which was beautiful - not an exact copy but had all of the beautiful elements we loved. The cake was delicious, and she included a pre wrapped extra top layer of our cake for us to freeze for our 1st anniversary, as a wedding gift for us. The cake was delivered with a cake stand, and picked up without us having to worry at all. I highly recommend Amy for your wedding cake!

Amy was a pleasure to work with! Due to an illness in my family, Patrick and I had to postpone our wedding for a year, and Amy was more than flexible when working with us to rebook our date.

We decided that we were going to do cake tasting the second time around! We met at Brown's Brewing Company and Amy came in with six inch cakes. Not only were they huge, but they were delicious as well!! I showed her a picture of a cake that I pinned on Pinterest (of course) and she said that she could recreate it. During our meeting, though, I changed my mind and decided to add an extra tier to the cake, which Amy said would not be a problem. Amy reached out to my florist, Pesha King and communicated with her in regards to the pearl beading that I had seen in the picture.

When Patrick and I walked into our venue that night, our eyesz were immediately drawn to the cake. It was magnificent. Although there was a slight difference in appearance than in the picture, which I wasn't aware of, it was still magnificent.

Cutting the cake was a breeze. Amy had marked a notch that we would cut, as we had sheet cake in the back. The carrot cake that we had was amazing! Patrick commented, with a grin, "It's almost as good as my grandmother's" - - (no one can really top grandma :)

All of the guests raved about the cake that was served, red velvet with raspberry filling and a buttercream frosting. It was to die for.

Patrick and I can't wait for our one year anniversary to have some more of the carrot cake!

Thank you Amy!

Amy was a pleasure to work with! She was responsive to emails and flexible in meeting for a tasting, dropping off the cake stand we borrowed, and with mixing and matching cake flavors, types etc. Speaking of the cake tasting, we were surprised and impressed that Amy provided small cakes of each flavor/filling/frosting combination (there are MANY to choose from) for us to try. She was able to provide us with the amount of cake we needed for our guests within the budget we set by helping us to be creative in choosing the cake. Our wedding cake was gorgeous and delicious. Guests commented on how moist and fresh it tasted. Perhaps best of all, we were able to serve the entire cake we purchased because Amy made us a separate anniversary cake to freeze for our celebration of our 1st anniversary next year. It was a pleasure to work with this very professional vendor.

Amy was a pleasure to work with! She was responsive to emails and flexible in meeting for a tasting, dropping off the cake stand we borrowed, and with mixing and matching cake flavors, types etc. Speaking of the cake tasting, we were surprised and impressed that Amy provided small cakes of each flavor/filling/frosting combination (there are MANY to choose from) for us to try.

Rachel,
I'm glad we had a chance to discuss your concerns yesterday. Your wedding cake was a lot of fun to design and create (Yankee's theme). Using butter only in the buttercream, per your request, did make a slight color difference between the top two tiers and the sides of the faux pentagon shaped base which had bright white fondant on it's top and regular buttercream on the sides. I'm not sure that the buttercream used on the edible portion would have looked best next to the fondant. The illusion we discussed and documented was to have a smooth "base-like" finish on the top of the faux tier for the figurines to be displayed upon. Cute story about your nephew poking his finger into the side of the faux base tier! I'm glad your guests were pleased with the cakes. Sorry about the weather for your wedding; I know you wanted to be married outdoors! Despite the rain, know that many of us worked hard to make your day wonderful. Thank you for including me in it. All the best!

Our only complaint was that we asked to have our monogram on the cake. When we arrived at the reception, the monogram wasn't there. Otherwise she is GREAT to work with and very flexible.
