Our wedding cake was included in our reception package, and I'm so glad Sweet Ladies was one of the options. Our cake was AMAZING. The design was beautiful - we gave Nikki a pretty specific description of what we wanted - and she executed it perfectly - everyone was talking about how beautiful our cake was. And the cake itself was delicious. We had three different levels with three different flavors because we couldn't pick one favorite. The best part is that we get a mini cake for our one year anniversary, versus eating a piece of cake that's been frozen for a year - we can't wait for that!

The cake that Sweet Ladies made for my wedding was more wonderful and beautiful than I had imagined it during our meeting. It was absolutely perfect. We had guests come up to us later "confessing" to seconds and thirds, it was that good. And it really was. Their fondant was to die for (I have had experience with terrible fondant) this one was delicious. They deliver, and even put our topper on when they set up.

Nikki's cakes are one of a kind. She is always willing to listen to your ideas and is able to create the wedding cake of your choosing. We received so many compliments on the flavors. The spice cake was everyone's favorite. Nikki is amazing & we would highly recommend her services. We have used her for both of our daughter's weddings.

We were satisfied with the baked goods. The problem is that when we placed our order, we expected to pick it up in Springfield, VA which is the address listed on their webpage. No. The bakery is run out of their home in Lorton, and when we arrived one hour early (3pm Friday) to pick up our order from their house, no-one answered the door. We had to drive back again two hours later (during rush hour traffic) to pick it up... but what really annoyed me was that they lied and said they were home when we tried to pick our order up the first time. If I had to do it again, I would place my order with a brick-and-mortar business.

We LOVED our wedding cake from Sweet Ladies Bakery and had a wonderful experience working with Nikki. She was very easy to get in touch with, listened carefully to what we were interested in and drew a mock-up of the cake, followed up with us a few days before the wedding to make sure she had the most up to date head count, and then made the best wedding cake imaginable. It looked beautiful and tasted spectacular! Seriously, our guests were going from table to table trying to find extra slices. I highly recommend Sweet Ladies!

We used Sweet Ladies Bakery for our wedding cake and HIGHLY recommend them! They had come recommended by a friend of my mom's, but we did other due diligence to verify. We went to a bridal fair at Ft. Belvoir (where we had our reception) and compared them with several other vendors. We also tried another bakery that had come recommended. By far, Sweet Ladies had the best-tasting cake! For whatever reason, a lot of times when you get fancy cakes, they taste very bland, and it was really important for our cake to taste like cake!

We first met with Nikki for a tasting of some requested flavor combinations. They were delicious! We also brought some sample pictures of cakes we liked. Crazy as it sounds, we also wanted some dinosaurs on our wedding cake--though we wanted them to be very colorful, cartoony, and happy. We brought her some general sample pictures and talked through our concept with her and she really got it. We felt very confident.

Flash forward to the wedding and the cake could not have been any more perfect! It was gorgeous, delicious, and the dinosaurs could not have been any more adorable. We look forward to our anniversary cake later this year and to using her for other specialty cakes going forward.

Nikki is an amazing baker and truly an artist. We could not more highly recommend Sweet Ladies Bakery!

Nikki from Sweet Ladies Bakery is so talented. She created a beautiful nautical themed cake for our wedding. Not only was our cake gorgeous it was also delicious! (Every single flavor too) Nikki was kind enough to make gluten free cupcakes for our guests with Celiac Disease. We loved the carrot cake so much that we elected to have Nikki make us a cake on our 1 year anniversary as well.

Wow, these ladies have great skill but also great creativity. We are not fans of the taste of fondant icing, but of course like the way wedding cakes look with it. They came up with a way to enjoy both. They made a 3 tier cake with only the top tier real!! My daughter and her husband cut into the top layer, while the caterer was busy cutting up the sheet cakes in back that were done with butter cream icing! Brilliant! This was the best wedding cake I had EVER had! My daughter chose Red Velvet and Almond. So the caterer placed alternating flavors at each place setting and that made for friendly cooperation to get tastes of both. And they did not disappoint...the moistest cake I have ever had, and this was a less expensive way to have it all!! Absolutely recommend Sweet Ladies bakery!

Nikki and the team at Sweet Ladies were so easy to work with. The cake was amaaazing (the lemon cake was my favorite!) and so so so beautifully decorated. It was honestly even prettier than I had imagined. Everything was delivered on time and as planned. I'd recommend Sweet Ladies to anyone!

We hosted a 50th wedding anniversary party for my parents. I had an old photo of my parents cutting their cake. I emailed it to Sweet Ladies and they were able to make a smaller, more delicious version! Not only did the cake look fabulous, it tasted amazing too! Nikki as so wonderful to work with too, she made it so easy to order the perfect cake for the party. This is the 2nd time I've used Sweet Ladies, and honestly---I will never go anywhere else again.

These cakes are AMAZING! Our wedding was at Fort Belvoir, which partners with Sweet Ladies in the price of the catering, so the wedding cake itself was "free" from the vendor. Amber was extremely nice, very professional, and set up a tasting so we could try the combinations we wished. She drew up an illustration of the cake and it turned out more beautiful at the wedding than we could have imagined!! We also decided to go ahead and purchase a groom's cake, which was shaped like a Ford Truck. It was very realistic down to the itty bitty details. The groom LOVED it!! Not to mention the fondant doesn't taste like most cakes (glue), it actually tastes like pure sugar, and the cake itself is moist and delicious on the wedding day, as if it was made within 24 hours. I absolutely recommend them, they're wonderful!

Nikki and Sweet Ladies are hands down the BEST wedding cake vendors in the greater DC area!! We were absolutely thrilled with our wedding cake! Not only did it look gorgeous, it tasted even better and that's not always easy to find! We picked a white cake with whipped cream and fresh fruit for our base layer and then Red Velvet with white chocolate mousse for our middle layer (the top layer is coconut with cream and berries and I cannot wait to dig in to it this week!!). We had a LOT of chefs and baking experts at our wedding and they all raved about the "best" fondant job they'd ever seen and the perfectly moist cake! Nikki also made filled cupcakes for us, as we had a lot of children at our wedding and they were devoured! Anyone considering a cake vendor in the NoVA or DC area should go with Sweet Ladies - you will not be disappointed.

Nikki is incredibly talented at what she does. Her talent at designing anything perfectly with half baked ideas from me was mind blowing. The best part? Not only are they the most beautiful cakes I have ever seen from my best friend's beach themed bridal shower, to my groom's cake Nike shoe & DJ Turn Tables, to our 4 tiered wedding cake - but they are THE MOST delicious cakes I have ever tasted. I am not a sweets person, but her cakes are to die for. The peanut butter/chocolate combination she did for my wedding was talked about for weeks later. Book her today! Nikki is incredibly sweet, responsive and accommodating. Thank you, Sweet Ladies!

I searched for a long time to find the right bakery for my wedding cake. I wanted to find a place that would not only do a beautiful cake for me, but also a sculpted groom's cake. Nikki was wonderful and really listed to what we wanted, she even agreed to make a cinnamon butter-cream frosting for my spice cake. The groom's cake also turned out amazing! My husband wanted a specific car wheel as the cake and Nikki followed the picture exactly and it turned out perfect!! I was really impressed with how moist the cake was and all of our guests could not stop talking about how good the red velvet groom's cake tasted. My only critique is that getting in touch with Nikki through email can be a bit difficult, but she answered my calls right away. We are also looking forward to our fresh anniversary cake in a year instead of having to freeze the top for our first anniversary!

For our intimate wedding of 40 people, our caterer R&R Catering hooked us up with Sweet Ladies Cupcakes for our reception. We chose two flavors: lemon with raspberry cream frosting and red velvet with cream cheese frosting. Ours was an outdoor event with a garden theme. Sweet Ladies Bakery applied the frosting to look like flower petals! At our request, the caterer added sugar gum paste rose buds at the center of each cupcake. Gorgeous -- and delicious!! And the cupcakes were just the right size so that folks could have one of each flavor, if they so desired! Sweet Ladies Bakery was an excellent find at a good price. If they had a storefront close to me, I'd be visiting them regularly!

I absolutely loved our wedding cake! It turned out exactly as I had pictured it! I never actually got to meet Nikki personally but was aways friendly through our e mail conversations. I did meet her assistant when we did our tasting and she was very nice. I got so many compliments on how beautiful and tasty the cake was. I would definitely recommend Sweet Ladies Bakery to any Bride!

Nikki from sweet ladies is amazing. My cake was even more beautiful than I had expected it to be. Her flavors are delicious and moist. Everyone raved over the cupcakes and the single cake for my husband and I was to die for. Give her a call and consider her services, you will not be disappointed.

Nikki was great! She was very familiar with our reception venue which was the main reason we even contacted her. But, she was so much more than that! When I first contacted her about making a cake she was very flexible about scheduling a tasting (Saturday mornings), and let us pick three cake/frosting combinations we wanted to try. When we stopped by her house for the tasting, I can honestly say I was so impressed with the cakes that she had on display that I knew right then and there that she was the cake artist for us. We had brought in photos of so many diffrent cakes we loved and had no clue what we wanted. But she noticed the common elements in the cakes and helped us reign in our ideas and design a beautiful cake. Delivery was so easy, we told her when and where and she asked us to have the cake toppers there ready for her, and when we got to the reception, our cake was there and beautiful! Very reasonably priced!

My cake was absolutely beautiful and delicious. Nikki came highly recommended, and when we met with her she provided us with delicious samples of her different flavors, and the pictures she showed us of other cakes she had made-- they were gorgeous.
All of her flavors were delicious, and she did an amazing job decorating it-- I wanted textured buttercream with fresh flowers on it, and she followed my preferences to perfection-- it looked absolutely stunning.
I wish I had gotten to eat more of it.... not sure what happened to it after the wedding, but I never saw it again, and didn't get any leftovers :( I hope someone enjoyed the extras!
My one complaint is that I found Nikki to be difficult to get in touch with-- she was not very prompt responding to emails, to the point where sometimes I got concerned. But, I think the main reason is that she is a one-woman show-- I think she does it all, and she seems to be very successful, hence very busy.

I got a 3D grooms cake and our wedding cake from Nikki. Both cakes turned out better than I imagined. The grooms cake was a pug which was absolutely awesome! I had the cake at our rehearsal dinner and it was just the spotlight and talk of the night - and was yummy! Our wedding cake was so beautiful! Nikki did a great job creating my vision on both cakes. Although we did hear people say the wedding cake was a little dry. My biggest compliant is Nikki's super slow responsiveness. She takes awhile to return emails and phone calls, which drove me crazy because all my other vendors were very responsive. This made me a little nervous leading up to our big day, but everything turned out flawless, on time and delicious.

Our cake was fabulous! Nikki is great to work with and very professional and responsive. She will give suggestions if asked but is never pushy. Our cake looked beautiful and tasted amazing! We got several compliments on the flavor! Nikki also made large cupcakes for a couple of guests celebrating their birthdays on our wedding day. They loved the sentiment and enjoyed taking the delicious cake home!

The cake was delicious! We really appreciated her ability to do the scrollwork without using fondant (which we are not fans of). We searched around to find a baker who would do that and Nikki said, no problem, so we said you're hired :)

I used Sweet Ladies Bakery for my wedding cake and was very pleased. Prior to meeting with us, Niki the pastry chef asked us to submit 3 cake flavors to taste. She met us at a Panera Bread for the tasting which was very convenient. Then, to our pleasant surprise, the cakes for the tasting were baked into cupcakes! I thought this was extremely clever, and we loved the cake tasting! Niki was flexible with the pricing, had great ideas, and threw in a fresh anniversary cake (we're not big on frozen cake). My wedding cake was beautiful and delicious! Me and my hubby just microwaved a slice of the topper today (2 days later) and it tasted even better than the day of! The only complaint that I have is that Niki does not respond to emails that well - but she usually responds to phone calls. All together, a good experience.

Nikki was just wonderful to work with. She was very responsive and flexible. She works from home, so expect to do meetings with her at a local Panera. I did not want to pay a lot of money for decorations on the cake - I just wanted something that tasted good. Nikki did more than that; she created something that tasted absolutely delicious! She worked within my budget and at no point did I feel any pressure to put bells and whistles on my cake. She made two cakes for me, a presentation cake with two layers and a sheet cake to feed 110 people. I was not expecting much from the presentation cake and left some store-bought roses for her to decorate with by her suggestion. However, when I saw the cake at the reception I was amazed. The butter cream was perfectly smooth and the flowers were arranged beautifully. The taste was just phenomenal! Everyone was commenting on how great it was for a wedding cake. Sweet Ladies Bakery was free of hassle, no pressure, exceeded my expectations and stayed within my budget. What more could a bride ask for?

Nikki created an adorable labrador groom's cake for us as well as our beautiful wedding cake. I was so disappointed because I thought I had missed tasting one of the flavors during the wedding, but thankfully our caterer had saved some for us. All three flavors (wedding layers - spice with cream cheese filling and yellow with choc buttercream, and groom's - lemon) were so wonderful - everyone was raving about them. The fondant on both cakes were perfect, and the detail on both cakes elicited rave reviews from everyone - even days later as our families were still partaking. Nikki was so patient with us, and didn't let us sweat anything, even when we showed up early to the reception site and almost ruined the groom cake surprise. Thank you Nikki for being so wonderful to us!

We ordered wedding and grooms cake from Sweet Ladies Bakery. The cake was delicious and gorgeous! Both cakes were a huge hit, and they turned out much better than I imagined.

The wedding cake was PERFECT!! My only regret is that I didn't get to taste the different layers. In lieu of keeping the top layer, we are going to have them make us a fresh cake (replica) next year. Yum!

The only reason they didn't get 5 stars: Our red velvet was a little on the dry side (not the entire cake though), and it was a little hard to contact them during the coordination phase. Definitely request boxes (just in case there are left overs.)

Nikki did cupcakes and a groom's cake for my wedding; both turned out awesome. She was really flexible when I wanted to make changes for the design of my cupcakes. She took a couple of days to return emails, so I would suggest calling if you need to get ahold of them quickly. She can make any cake you give her a picture of; just like cake boss on tv! People at the wedding couldn't get over how real the groom's cake looked; it really did look like a cake from ace of cakes or cake boss. Be sure to request boxes to be sent to the venue for packing up leftover cake at the end of the night.

SLB can make just about any design cake and their wedding cakes turn out fabulous. The flavor of their cakes are awesome but the price is a bit high for what it's worth. They take a few days to respond back to your requests.
