Linda was great to work with leading up to the wedding. She's very nice and friendly and flexible and the cake looked great. I was very pleased with the tasting and everything leading up to the wedding; however, on the day I was disappointed. The food was not like during our tasting and it didn't taste right (things weren't hot and they were either dry or burnt with a different flavor). Also, we were told that the bridal party is taken care of while they're busy taking photos during the cocktail hour. A server will be bringing the bridal party food and drinks so not to worry. This was not the case though. We were never brought any beverages and the first time I got to taste any of the hor d'oeuvres was when my mom brought a plate out to us after about 45 minutes of pictures. This was very disappointing. We were told that the catering staff would help direct the guests where to go for the cocktail hour and they did not. Also, the bartender opened every bottle of wine we had provided even though there was way more alcohol than we actually needed for our guests so we had to throw it out after the wedding, which was such a waste. I enjoyed the planning process but I don't feel that the final execution went off how we were promised and that's a let down when you're spending that much money.

One of the best decisions I made was hiring Linda. Although I researched a number of caterers, I knew from our first conversation that Linda was my caterer and I so hoped things would work out. Not only did she consistently confirm my instinct but she went above and beyond in every way. Our wedding felt more like dinner at a friends home rather than a catered wedding meal. Every dish was full of love and represented us perfectly. She fulfilled every wish we had, added her own ideas we never even thought of, AND on top of that she was one of the more affordable options we contacted. Plus her staff was amazingly kind and helpful amd made sure we always had everything we needed--drinks and food included--on the day of the wedding. We could not be happier with the service Linda provided. It was the best food I've ever had at a wedding--and many of our guests told us the same thing. They are still talking about the brisket and the cake! Linda is a professional, an artist, and a kind and joyous spirit! Hire her!!!

One thing we loved about Linda’s cake is that it was MOIST. This can be really hard to find in wedding cakes, but she is religious about freshness. If a fresh, moist, delicious cake (with a variety of really interesting flavor choices) is important to you, Sweet Nothings is a great way to go. She was also very accommodating in making a gluten free cake for me (I was diagnosed with Celiac disease after we hired her).

While we were generally happy with the cakes, Linda convinced us to use a different type of frosting for the layers thank for the outside of the cakes, and we were very disappointed with how that turned out. Linda can also be difficult to connect with (by phone, email, snail mail, or in person). However, the ultimate result were two beautiful, delicious cakes that garnered rave reviews from many of our guests!

Perhaps our experience was out of the ordinary (it seems like the other reviewers received excellent service) but I would not recommend this vendor. The owner was consistently late to our meetings, presented us with squashed 'test cakes' with no frosting that even for someone with a sweet tooth like me looked very unappealing, and tasted even worse than they looked. I had several guests confide in me the next day that the cake was dreadful (thankfully the only bad part of our wedding!). I feel bad writing a negative review, but planning a wedding is stressful enough - choose a more reliable baker!

Linda makes absolutely fabulous wedding cakes. I'm a dessert fiend and was very picky about getting a cake that tasted like cake (and not cardboard). We ordered a hazelnut cake with dark chocolate ganache and it was out of this world. It was the first wedding I've seen where I caught guests getting seconds of cake!

Before:

I don't like cake, so we were looking for someone who was able to think outside of the box. If you are a cupcake or pie bride, or if you like any other assorted desserts, I recommend Sweet Nothings.

I like Linda from Sweet Nothing's style; it seemed like mom's home cooking, but it had a professional look. We are sooo excited for dessert! She is doing an assortment of all kinds of things for us. Now the hardest thing is deciding what to smash in each others faces!

After:

Linda did an amazing job. Our dessert table was more then we could ask for and more than our guests could eat, so overall huge thumbs up.
