We ordered a small cake, cupcakes, and cookies, and they were a hit! To be honest, this was one thing that fell to the back of my to do list, and in my panic they definitely came through for me! I put in an order about a week before the big event and they were so great about it. We loved having options for our guests, and everything I tried was awesome! There is a reason they have so many rave reviews on Yelp.

The only con is that they don't deliver! (We paid an outside messenger service to have everything delivered)

Cupcakes are delicious! They did a lovely cake tasting for my mother and me for a cupcake tower. They also worked with me to make the frosting exactly to match my wedding color. The only downside is that they do not deliver, which caused some stress for me.

SO DELICIOUS! I had a custom design request and they took that and made a gorgeous cake! They do not deliver, which is the reason for the 4.5 on flexibility but it was ready on time for our coordinator to pick up. It tasted delicious, and exactly like the sample we had tasted. Could not have been happier!

What can I say? I love Sweet Mandy B's and I didn't even think about getting my wedding cake from anywhere else. Me and my husband went to the shop, they gave us a bunch of cupcakes to sample so we brought them home and invited our friends over for a cupcake tasting party. The cake looked just how I pictured it and more important, tasted delicious. And the price was great!

My husband and I opted out of the traditional wedding cake in lieu of a sweets bar, but we ordered a small cake for ceremonial the ceremonial. Everything from our initial tasting to the final product was excellent. We had a lovely evening of tasting and the staff member we met with was able to provide so much information. We walked out of our tasting confident knowing we had checked one more thing off our to-do list. The ordering process was incredibly simple and they were very flexible with our pick-up. We had a beautiful and extremely delicious cake to cut and feed each other at our wedding (and to eat at home for the next week!) We will definitely be returning to have an anniversary cake made.

I wish that I could give Sweet Mandy B's more than 5 stars! I had tasted their delicious cupcakes before, but didn't really think of them at first for our wedding cake. However, we were looking for a more petite cake to go on our large dessert buffet, and the prices for other wedding cakes were getting absurd. Turn to Sweet Mandy B's, where I know their cake is glorious, and their wedding cakes cost the same as any other cake (cheap!)!

Sweet Mandy B's was wonderful throughout the whole process. I went to my first tasting with my mom, and we ate a total of... ohhhh, 16 cupcakes of varying flavors? All yummy. We were really comfortable and left alone to taste/chat, and we were given a bunch of the leftovers and extra cupcakes to taste home for my then-fiance to try. I had been disappointed that they didn't have almond cake to taste that day, since it's my favorite. Sure enough, I called to come in and order the cake with my wedding planner, and they made a special batch of almond for me to try (divine).

As for the style, I wanted something fairly basic. Since we had a large dessert buffet, and I wanted a more petite look, we went with a two tiered cake, estimated to serve about 90 people (for a 160 person wedding). It was covered in white cream cheese frosting, kind of spackled on. We then added flowers via our florist. When we saw it on the wedding night, it was perfect.

The top tier was red velvet, and the bottom tier was half almond and half snickerdoodle cake, all with cream cheese frosting. We had been told that there is ALWAYS left over cake, and sure enough - ours was so delicious that we ran out! There were plenty of other desserts to supplement, but not everyone got the cake.

We got rave reviews. Couldn't be happier, and can't wait to see photos of it. The only downside is that they don't deliver, so my wedding planner had to pick up the cake on the day of.. I know this could be a deal killer.

We LOVE Sweet Mandy B's and we knew we had to have them at our wedding. We tried almost every other cupcake place in the city (there's a lot), just to make sure there wasn't somewhere else out there that did a better job. There wasn't. Cindy was beyond helpful and the cupcakes were amazing! Everyone raved about them and we enjoyed our leftover mini cake for days after the wedding.

Let me tell you, I love cupcakes and I have sampled many different cupcakes in the city and Sweet Mandy B's is my absolute favorite by far. They have a great selection of flavors and are they are all delicious. Their prices are very reasonable as well. My favorite are the red velvet! We ordered cupcakes and a mini cake for our wedding from them. The cake was gorgeous and everything turned out great. They are very friendly and super easy to work with. I would highly recommend them! Only thing to note is that they do not deliver, so make sure you have a friend who can pick up your cake/cupcakes for you or have them messengered.

Well, this is the fifth vendor that we have evaluated and haven't been able to give anything less than glowing reviews! Sweet Mandy B's was a no brainer for us. We have used them for countless birthday parties, several work events, and the many 'just because we want an amazing treat' moments. Because we only had 30 people to plan for and we knew our Kinzie Chophouse meal would be very filling, we decided to go for 5 flavors of mini cupcakes for the dessert immediately after dinner and regular cupcakes 'to-go', because let's face it, who doesn't want to eat "wedding cake" the morning after a night of dancing and schmoozing? no one, that's who! So, we jumped on Amazon and bought individual cupcake boxes, tied on some cute bows on and had a dozen of each of the 5 different flavors boxed and ready for guests to take when they left. Sweet Mandy B's scheduled a tasting for us, around our schedule, even though it wasn't the best time for them/it was their busy time. They had a tasting plate ready for us right when we got there, they answered every question we had, made the ordering process easy, and even when we ordered 6 months in advance, they were on schedule and ready for pick-up right when they said they would be. (we just assumed because we were a smaller order, we would get lost in the shuffle, but we were pleasantly proven wrong!) We ordered the yellow, devil's food, carrot, snicker-doodle, and lemon- all of which tasted amazing and looked spectacular! Sweet Mandy B's once again exceeded our expectations!

My husband was in charge of all the details for our wedding cake since he loves sweets, but we were really hoping to pay under $600 for a cake. He found Sweet Mandy B's and we set up a tasting. It was the first place we visited for a cake and the last! The tasting was absolutely amazing. We were given 12 different cupcakes with different flavors and frostings to try. Needless to say, we took most of them home to sample later and give away but it was so much fun! All of the flavors were delicious, the cake was moist and the icing was perfectly flavored. After we talked more with the coordinator at Sweet Mandy B's and we received a price quote for our cake we were sold! Three layers, each layer a different flavor (strawberry, carrot cake, and snickerdoodle) plus a large yellow sheet cake all for under $300! The only problem is, they do not deliver the cake so we had to have family members pick it up between the ceremony and reception and take it over to the reception venue. They said it was easy to carry and transport the cake and luckily, it came over in one piece. I think you really save a lot on cost due to the fact that they do not deliver and they don't do much with the design. We just had a simple design on the cake and asked our florist to add flowers to each layer, but it turned out absolutely beautiful and our guests raved about the flavors! I am so happy we went with Sweet Mandy B's and I will go back again and again for more cupcakes, cakes, cookies, etc!

We used Sweet Mandy B's for our wedding cake, and we LOVED it! We decided to go for a non-traditional route, and had a wedding cake buffet. We had 1 "traditional" cake that was very pretty and simple and elegant. We also had 6 other smaller cakes in all different flavors, including: Strawberry, Oreo, Peanut Butter, Red Velvet...etc. They were outstanding and everyone at our wedding loved it! I think people had multiple pieces. We didn't get to save our top tier, but that's ok because we would rather just go back to Sweet Mandy B's next summer for our anniversary.

The service was totally fine, as they are very laid back there. We went in for a tasting and were given 14 cupcakes to go sample on our own....it was Heaven!! The only con was that they don't deliver, so we had to hire a third party to pick up and drop off for us. At the end of the day it was totally worth it!

The thing about wedding food/cake is that unless it's either the best cake you have ever had or the worst cake you have ever had, no one will ever mention it again. People are still talking about the cupcakes four weeks later. I'm getting emails from relatives that live far away asking me to bring them next time I visit.

We choose to do an assortment of lemon, red velvet, orange creamsicle, strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, banana chocolate chip, snickerdoodle and a few others. Everyone went crazy over them and the kids could barely sit through dinner as they were full of anticipation of devouring tower of awesomeness in the corner of the room.

Also a plus, they have vegan treats if you have vegan guests! Whatever your occasion, I would highly recommend Sweet Mandy B's.

Love their cake and cupcakes! The cost is MUCH less than a typical wedding cake too. Two things: must arrange own delivery and had some issues in placing the order by phone. We went back and forth with multiple bakery representatives about types of filling and sizes of cakes that could be made in certain types. If ordering a wedding cake, be sure to ask for the wedding cake specialist/coordinator.

Instead of getting one big, fancy wedding cake or go for the ubiquitous cupcakes, I ordered a buffet of cakes from Sweet Mandy Bs. All in, we had 9 cakes of varying sizes and flavors--from vanilla and red velvet to carrot and lemon--including one two-tier devil's food cake with white-on-white scrollwork that was our nod to tradition.

I had a great tasting there one afternoon, and they preferred that we order only a few months in advance (about 2). Everything with our order went as planned and the cake buffet was a HUGE hit with our guests! However, you should be aware that they do not deliver, so you will need to make arrangements for pick up yourself (our day-of coordinator did this for us).

Visually stunning. Totally delicious!

Ask a local, Sweet Mandy B's desserts are DELICIOUS. This place is known more for their banana pudding cups and cupcakes... but they're a hidden gem of a wedding cake bakery! A great value. OK OK so they were a little hands-off when it came to the customer service, but they made the most delicious cake I've ever had (Banana choc. chip cake with PB butter cream). They have a ton of designs, we went with the sugar daisies (al� Martha). Only drawback is that you have to arrange for a pickup or hire a courier for delivery. We went the courier route, and it got there safe and sound.

We went the courier route, and it got there safe and sound. Read less

YUM. Now, I'm a bride that went for taste, not a fancy look. We were looking for cost cutting techniques and since some bakeries charge $8 per slice, we went for the $2 cupcake :) We went in for a cupcake tasting and after trying 12 (seriously, the BEST part of the wedding planning), we chose 3 simple choices. In order to customize the cupcakes to my wedding colors, they allowed me to bring in my own sprinkles- the fancy name for those things is escaping me- for them to use.

The only reason they lost 1/2 a star is because they don't deliver, but it really was not difficult to use a messenger. They had a couple to recommend and I just made one phone call.

We served the cupcakes with the coffee self-serve style after dinner so people could eat dessert whenever they wanted to, either right away or after they danced off dinner a bit. I heard from many people that only about 80% of the cake is usually eaten, but there wasn't one cupcake left at the end of the night!

I heard from many people that they were the best cupcakes they have ever had. Sweet Mandy B cupcakes are worth every calorie!

The cake from Sweet Mandy B's was beautiful and the BEST wedding cake I've had. I don't like the fancy flavors that lots of people get, with all kinds of weird fillings and the fondant icing, etc. This is true homemade cake with homemade frosting, and the value is great. We got a smallish tiered cake, and several sheet cakes and the cost was probably half or less than if we had gone with a traditional wedding cake vendor. (SMB's is more mom-and-pop and is known for their cupcakes) They will do cakes for all kinds of occasions, and the only downside is that they don't deliver, which required a friend to pick the cake up the morning of the wedding. This friend was stressing about dropping the cake, etc, but in the end it all worked out perfectly.

We ordered cupcakes from Sweet Mandy B's via our caterer (Bespoke Cuisine) - in white, chocolate, and devil's food cake flavors. They were a huge hit! It didn't matter that cupcakes have become a huge wedding fad in the last several years. Everyone loved them. We took our leftovers home and froze them and ate wedding cupcakes for months afterwards. :-D

My pricing below is a guess since they were included in our contract.

We wanted a cupcake cake and Sweet Mandy B's has the best cupcakes in Chicago. They offered several choices in cupcakes (and we got some of each) but you couldn't ask for specific flavors if they didn't already make them. They also couldn't take our order until a week before the wedding, which was a bit scary, but it all worked out and the cupcakes were divine!
