Evan was friendly and helpful. I had a rough idea of what I wanted for my wedding cake and she helped me make the final decision. We got a three tiered cake, with the raspberry chocolate ganache and the vanilla almond. Maybe I'm biased, but this was the best wedding cake I have ever had! It was moist and full of flavor. All of our guests commented on how delicious it was. Plus it just looked pretty. Evan's prices were reasonable. I will certainly be referring my friends and family to "Sweets by E" in the future.

Wow...where to begin?? Evan, owner of Sweets by E, was a total godsend. We found her through a recommendation by our photographer, after having gone through several other cake tastings that didn't work out.

When we met with Evan, our first thoughts were 1) this cake is the BEST cake I've ever tasted and 2) her design work is impeccable. My wife, a chef, was even blown away. From the moment we sat down in our initial consultation, Evan seemed to know exactly what we wanted with our cake, even when we couldn't really decide ourselves. She was flexible, creative and incredibly professional yet friendly!!

Our cake turned out exactly as we had hoped. It was delicious and beautiful! We are still receiving compliments on how amazing everything tasted.

I highly, highly recommend Sweets by E. Not only are you getting amazing service and dedication, you are getting a mind-blowing product! Thanks again, Evan!

There are many things about my wedding day that I will always remember: the dress, the fun we had taking photos in the town. But one of my best memories is the wedding cake. That beautiful, scrumptious wedding cake.

We knew from the moment we walked into Evan's bakery that we had found THE BAKER for our cake. All of her flavors were amazing, but we settled on two: almond and chocolate. As far as design, Evan listened to all of our ideas and plans ... and then exceeded every expectation we had about what we wanted.

When I arrived at our reception, I walked over to our cake. It was beautiful. Scrollwork, with pearls and dragees … and Evan's sugar flowers were GORGEOUS. I know I stared at the cake for a good five minutes before I could pull myself away. I almost didn't want to cut into it when it came time! But my new husband convinced me to. (And this is why I love him.) It was the most delicious cake I’ve ever had. Ever. EVER. I’m sure the noises I made gave it away, too. And our guests all felt the same. Sure, there was some heated debate about which was the BEST flavor (I side with almond, but I was NOT leaving that reception without a piece of the chocolate … and OMG it was delish!!) – but one week later, our guests are still raving about the cake.

From start to finish, Evan was a pleasure to work with. She was organized, responsive, worked within our budget and then came up with something that was so incredible, it was the hit of our reception. I’ll be ordering all of my cakes from her in the future – birthdays, anniversaries. Heck, I might even invent a few new celebrations just as an excuse to get another cake. Thanks, Evan!

I initially contacted Sweets by E because she was close to my wedding venue, which was out in Bluemont, VA. I was hoping she made great cakes, but that was to be determined. I really wanted to find a baker who made moist cakes with delicious frosting and fillers that were not too sweet or too waxy.

Evan (aka E) has a wide variety of cake flavors, fillings, and frosting types to choose from, ALL of them are DELICIOUS! I mean super super yummy. I was floored how good every single one of them was! It made it hard to choose my three flavors! I knew immediately that she was my gal.

I wanted a wedding cake that would knock peoples socks off. Evan not only made me three different layers of perfectly moist, flavorful, sweet cakes but she also did an absolutely AMAZING job on the design of the cake: smooth ivory fondant with petals and pearls on each of the three layers, matching the petal color to my bridesmaid dresses almost exactly.

I honestly could not have asked for more. Everything about my wedding cake was perfect. And, to top it off, she does a free One Year Anniversary cake. Evan was also very helpful and flexible with dropping the cake off at the venue, since our wedding was Easter Sunday. I have nothing but great things to say about my entire experience.

Sweets by E is a no brainer.

We LOVED working with Sweets By E! Evan was very friendly but professional! The final product was delicious!
We also used Sweets By E for our rehearsal dinner cakes. The cakes were so yummy only two slices remained at the end if the dinner! And those two remaining slices didn't last long.
Looking forward to our first anniversary when we can reminisce about our special day and enjoy our wedding cake top!

Evan did a wonderful job with our cake. We wanted something simple and elegant but something that tasted like sweet heaven! We had two layers of pumpkin and cream cheese and two layers of redvelvet. It was so good! I actually made time to eat my cake at the wedding and I was so happy I did, cause there was barely any left! My guests ate it all! She used some of our extra decor to give the cake a little pizazz. Evan was sweet, professional, and creative. If you are looking for personalized elegance and have a sweet tooth, this is your baker!

Where do I begin. We had 3 weeks to get a cake made for our last minute wedding ceremony. Evan was flexible and accommodating to all our needs when no one else was.

The cake was exactly what we needed and expected, and the taste exceeding our expectations. The cake arrived on time. It was great to work with someone like Evan and her team. We will use her for events in the future, and will recommend her to others without any second thoughts.

We quickly set up an appointment, where we were able to taste several different cake flavors in her very cute shop! We didn't have any cake designs in mind, so she us many different styles and examples. She has a wide variety of traditional and unique cake flavors and the pricing is fantastic. Evan worked with our florist to get extra flowers to decorate and did a fantastic job. The cake was beautiful and tasted amazing. I would definitely recommend Sweets by E for any of your cake or bakery needs. Thanks again for everything!

Sweets by E is the best bakery in the area. Evan is so responsive and helpful, she makes this part of planning a wedding as easy as possible! I was not a very helpful customer... I told Evan I wanted a white rustic cake and those were the only guidelines I gave her and she created the most beautiful cake I have ever seen. I could not have asked for anything more perfect that what she created for me and my husband! In addition to creating the most beautiful cakes I have ever seen, Evan bakes the most delicious cakes I have ever tasted!

I would recommend Sweets by E to anyone and everyone! Thanks you Evan for the perfect wedding cake!!

Evan was a joy to work with! As it turns out, Evan attended the same alma mater as my husband and I and so we were partial to support a fellow JMU Duke in her business endeavor.
I ordered a grooms cake in addition to a 3-tier traditional wedding cake. Both cakes were fabulous! My guests are still raving about the chocolate and peanut butter grooms cake Evan made.
Lastly, I'll say that of all the bakeries we priced, Sweets by E offers the most affordable price. My husband and I feel that we got the most bang for our buck selecting Evan at Sweets by E to create our wedding cakes. I will definitely keep Evan in mind for future parties and celebrations!

I couldn't recommend Evan and Sweets by E more highly. She did an amazing job- not only did the cake look beautiful but it also tasted great! We did 3 cake tastings and liked hers the best. It was also not the most expensive one we tried.
She worked with us to get exactly what we wanted. When our number of guests changed once we got all the RSVPs back, she was very accommodative.
We also liked the fact that this is a local small business- it's just her- so you also know she is the one baking your cake- not some employee.
I was recommended to her by a friend and would certainly recommend her again!

If I ever need to buy a cake again, I know exactly who I'll be contacting! Read less

Evan of Sweets by E is so great to work with! She's creative, flexible and truly passionate about what she does. We had a traditional wedding cake, and a groom's cake made for our wedding. Both cakes were displayed in the front entrance of the wedding venue, and the cakes made for beautiful centerpieces. The wedding cake was exactly what we wanted, and went with the style of our flowers. The groom's cake was incredible! I asked for a record player because music has always been an important element to my relationship with my husband. The cake had a lyric that meant a great deal to us written on the record, and as a BIG surprise the record actually spun! Evan is an artist and her attention to detail is amazing! We've had our share of wedding cake, and hers truly tastes the best. People couldn't stop complimenting the look of the cakes, and then when they got to try it many people told us they didn't think such beautiful cakes could taste so delicious. We can't recommend Sweets by E enough!

Evan was a dream to work with! She came highly recommended by another bride who had used my venue and we could not have been more pleased with her. From the get go, she was always conscious of our budget constraints and offered many options to meet our needs. The cherry blossom design was gorgeous and the flavors were amazing! We had funfetti with chocolate cream filling and butter cream frosting. I will definitely go to her for future baking needs!

She was pleasant, responsive, affordable and very accommodating.

I have a gluten allergy and was at first hesitant about having a gluten free cake, but it turned out AMAZING! Both myself and another gluten-free individual agree that this cake was better than cakes that we ate when we could have gluten and other individuals who don't have the allergy commented on how good the cake was and didn't believe me when I told them it was gluten free. She was great at helping us pick out flavors and customize them to our tastes, and her prices were extremely reasonable. I plan on using her again for other specialty cakes. If you have a gluten allergy or just love cake, this is the place to go!

Best cupcakes ever!!! Our cupcakes were an absolute hit, and the number one thing guests commented on after the wedding!! I can't say enough about Evan at Sweets by E. We set up a tasting with her and she was accommodating with our busy schedule. We tried several flavors for our cupcakes and cakes and they were all very good. Before the wedding she was very prompt at returning emails when I had questions and updates.

Evan completely earned the 5 stars on the wedding day! She delivered the cake and cupcakes to the venue, keeping the heat and other factors in mind so that they would make it thru the evening. We cut the cake early so that guests could enjoy the cupcakes. About 2 minutes after the first cupcake was taken, the whole front of the cupcake tower was empty. That is when all our friends and family started raving about the cupcakes!

What makes this even better, is that the majority of our friends and family are runners who splurge sparingly and as a result only want high quality sweets. Toward the end of the evening, the venue boxed up the last few cupcakes in to-go boxes. That is when I noticed the cupcake stealing! People were hiding cupcakes so they could take them home! At the after party, guests were bartering with other guests just to get one more cupcake! The next day I found a stash of cupcakes in my brother's room where I finally got to taste a red velvet one. It was amazing! Oh my gosh, they were worth every penny. I have never had a cupcake that tasted so good!!! And then I knew why guests were bartering drinks for cupcakes the night before!!

I would completely recommend Sweets by E to anyone and everyone. You will not be disappointed!!!

Evan at Sweets by E was fantastic to work with for my wedding cupcakes! Finalizing the details for our cake was the least stressful part of wedding planning thanks to her. We had 4 different flavors - Vanilla, salted caramel, guinness chocolate cake with baileys buttercream and chocolate cake with vanilla. Everyone absolutely loved the cupcakes and we were thankful there were a few leftover for us to enjoy! My family now uses Sweets by E for all our family events too.

I can't say enough good things about Evan and her cakes! The whole process went so smoothly, from the initial meeting and tasting to seeing the final cake display at our reception. We sampled from a great selection of flavors and talked about the rough ideas we had in mind. Evan was really helpful making suggestions and giving advice to help us decide on our final selection (we ended up with a trio of different size tiered cakes). She was also incredibly responsive when I had follow-up questions and shared images of photos that I liked for inspiration, so I felt completely relaxed and reassured that we were on the same page.

When we showed up to the reception, the cakes were absolutely perfect. They were exactly as we had discussed, but more beautiful than I had imagined! And they tasted great too! Evan also created a groom's cake shaped like a football helmet from the college my husband and I went to. It was a surprise for my husband, and he was so excited and couldn't believe the amount of detail in the helmet cake!

Evan was one of our favorite people we worked with for our wedding, and we couldn't have asked for a better wedding cake experience!

Evan was a joy to work with on my wedding cake! From our initial consultation, she was friendly, informative, and gave us some great ideas on what we could do with the cake (I went into the appointment with no set vision of what I wanted). The cake was delicious! Our guests specifically commented that this was among the best wedding cakes they've had, and I totally agree! Additionally, Evan offers to give you a top tier cake for free at the one year anniversary mark, for those who don't want to save the top tier in the freezer (or for those who just want another delicious fresh cake again in a year's time :) Evan is fantastic and does great work. I'd book her again in a heartbeat!

Evan is an amazingly sweet and smart young lady and the owner of Sweets. We loved working with her because of the most amazing cake flavors and filings, and extra-ordinary service! You could never find such a variation of flavors and fillings, trust me I was looking everywhere in Ashburn-Reston-Herndon-Sterling areas. Sweets was the only place in our area. We were on a budget and price really surprised us. Among all the vendors that we had interviewed Sweets' flavors were the most delicious and the price was the lowest (believe it or not:))!!! Oh yea, our cake was decorated exactly like on the picture that I gave to Sweets. The cake was delicious, design was amazing, the cake was delivered on time and with no problems, the price was a nice surprise - what else a bride can ask for???:)

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sweets By E! Evan was a pleasure to work with. Her responsiveness and flexibility were impeccable. We added a second cake flavor a week before the wedding and she took the last minute order in stride. The cakes she made were moist, rich and fresh. I had multiple people tell me they had two slices and that they were the most delicious wedding cake they have ever had. I highly recommend working with Evan and Sweets By E!

Browsing Wedding Wire, I kept going back to Sweets by E's page because her cake photos were so great. I decided to set up a tasting, even though I thought she might be a little out of my price range. My fiance and I went to her bakery in Herndon and had a very pleasant experience. Evan had asked what cake flavors we wanted to taste ahead of time and then provided whole slices of cake...and coffee! The cake tasted amazing and Evan was able to advise me about what style of cake she would be able to do for me that fit my wedding theme and price range. She understood exactly what I had in mind when I said my theme was "Anthropologie" and I had no doubt that we shared the same vision. We initially signed a contract for a small cutting cake and then several dozen cupcakes (as this option was less expensive), but after I found out that I had some extra budget, I decided to just go with a whole wedding cake. Evan was very responsive and flexible to changes that I wanted to make.

At the wedding reception the cake looked amazing and was exactly as I pictured it. Everyone loved it and was so impressed that "wedding cake" could taste so good. We were also able to take home and freeze the top of the cake, which was pretty cool too.

Although I had many wedding vendors that I liked, Sweets by E was the only vendor who I never had to worry about. She worked with my venue to set up delivery, and I never had to worry about a thing. I will certainly be ordering from Sweets by E for my future cake and cupcake needs.

Evan Sanderson of Sweets By E did an amazing job on our wedding day sweets! We opted to go for a cupcake "cake" with a top tier for cutting and Evan also made a Washington Redskins groom's cake for my husband. I provided her with a photo and she made it look PHENOMENAL. I changed my wedding theme/colors after my initial consultation with her and she was able to create a cupcake display that matched my new color scheme completely. Better than I could've imagined. The cakes were delicious, she was extremely responsive and professional and she is very affordable. HIGHLY recommended.

First of all, Evan is an absolute sweetheart and a joy to work with. Beyond that, she is SO talented - our cake was hands down the best cake I've ever had, and our guests were raving. We had two flavors - the Guinness chocolate cake with bailey's cream filling on the bottom and as the groom's cake, and then the top tiers were the tiramisu cake with the mascarpone cream filling. Both were HEAVENLY and our guests were all raving about how delicious it was. She was so flexible with design and the things this girl can do with buttercream icing is amazing - there was no fondant and the cake was perfection. She also placed our cake topper, delivered to our venue, and offers a complimentary top tier sized cake for your first anniversary... all above and beyond what we could ask. I can't wait until next year when I can have more, and you can bet I'll be ordering a small version of the Guinness cake for my Husband's birthday every year because it is incredible and he loved it.

Thank you so much Evan, you are so talented and the cake was absolutely perfect.

It couldn't have been easier working with Evan to design our beautiful and delicious wedding cake! We chose Sweets by E because she had funfetti cake, which is my favorite, and once we tasted it, we were sold. We also liked that she specialized in buttercream frosting and her simple designs were beautiful. Her prices are reasonable compared to many other cake places in the DC metro area, and she was really flexible with our design ideas to add ribbon at the end, add cake toppers that we bought a couple weeks prior to the wedding day. Everyone raved about how fun the cake was and how delicious it tasted. We saved the top layer and only have 1/4 left for our 6 month anniversary! I cannot recommend Sweets by E enough!

Sweets By E provided a wonderful cake for my wedding. Due to my dietary issues, Evan baked two gluten-free red velvet tiers, as well as a full of gluten vanilla with chocolate tier for the guests. The red velvet cake was moist and delicious and I'm told the vanilla tier was the same.

As far as design goes, I wanted the cake to match the lace on my dress, which she did perfectly! It was a nice touch for the wedding.

The tasting prior to the wedding was great, as well. Evan provided many samples for us to try. She worked directly with the reception site for delivery, so that was one less thing for me to do!

Evan is absolutely amazing to work with. She makes the process so fun and simple. Her cakes are truly mouthwatering. She offers unique flavors like the caramel apple we did to go with our fall wedding. (The buttercream icing is also to die for.) Evan took my ideas and put together exactly what we wanted. She was in contact with our wedding coordinator the day of and there was no stress involved in the delivery. We received so many compliments on both the look and taste of the cake (it was stunning). We added a fifth tier to keep and it is in our freezer anxiously awaiting our one year anniversary!

Evan provided the cake for our wedding in October 2012 at the Carnegie Institute for Science. Evan was a joy to work with! We came to her pretty late in the game, and she was willing (and able!) to help us implement a very specific design (which other bakers seemed to have a problem with) only weeks away from the wedding. The cake was DELICIOUS! She is a very enthusiastic and talented baker, and it really comes through in her work. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a professional, enthusiastic, and reasonably priced baker who can deliver a memorable cake for their wedding.

Evan did an amazing job on our wedding sweets. She baked our wedding cake, groom's cake and assorted cupcakes.

She is friendly, responsive and her work is impeccable. Everything tasted great, all of our sweets were consumed!

We had the lemon cake with raspberry and cream filling - delicious!

Evan is amazing and by far the best wedding cake designer in the DC area in my opinion. I've been to a lot of weddings and tried cake all around the area, and nothing compares to her delicious creations. I loved every bit of working with her. I found her on weddingwire myself. She moved to the area in the last couple of years so she's still a bit of a hidden secret. Our first tasting with her was really delicious - we ended up getting both of the flavors we tried - chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and the other was almond cake with raspberries and italian buttercream. We had vanilla buttercream for the frosting but she does fondant cakes as well. I also bought my graduation cake from her and it was amazing as well - homemade funfetti with italian buttercream. She was very professional and quick to respond throughout the process. I also really loved her unique and creative touch on a traditional DC-themed cake - cherry blossoms, a very popular theme but personally significant to me and my husband. Her take was incredibly elegant and she also included a buttercream-frosted scenery of the monuments. The pictures are on Sweets by E's facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/sweetsbye/ and also here is a direct link to one - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=366648283422925&set=pb.129967080424381.-2207520000.1351532653&type=3&theater

Also it's quite impressive to think that she did all of that with buttercream and sugar flowers. My husband had really wanted them in buttercream instead of fondant, which Evan also does an amazing job at, because of prejudices he had against fondant. I really can't say enough about Evan. I highly recommend her as the first stop for any bride, no matter what your budget is as you can't beat the quality of her cakes, her professionalism, and extremely reasonable prices (no minimums, "kitchen cake" options, and options to order cupcakes if you just want one decorated tier).

Easy to work with, very responsive to my emails. I'd definitely recommend her services to anyone.

Evan was awesome to work with. She spent time walking me through all possible cake configurations, sending me pictures of each and was willing to experiment if I wanted to push the envelope some. She also did a great job executing my "cake vision". I had sent her three pictures of cakes, each with a certain element I wanted and she did a fabulous job mirroring each piece to build my perfect wedding day cake.

We hired Evan to make both our wedding and groom's cake, and we could not be more pleased with the results! Not only were both of the cakes beautiful/flawless, but they tasted delicious, too! I don't normally like the taste of fondant, but even the fondant she used on the groom's cake tasted good. I really had no clue what I wanted in a cake other than the colors and general style, and Evan was always available to answer my questions and help me narrow down the selections. She also simplified the sizing/number of tiers for me. As a true procrastinator, I waited until about 3 weeks before the wedding to even start thinking about what I wanted to do for a grooms cake, so I was super thrilled that Evan was still able to make it for me! I had a rather strange request for her to make it a Duke wrestling singlet, and all I had to do was send her a picture/general description of what I wanted and she was able to recreate it perfectly. Long story short, Evan's baking and customer service skills are awesome and I highly recommend her for your wedding or bridal shower.

Evan baked a wedding cake and a LOT of cupcakes for our September wedding. She was incredibly easy to work with during the whole process. We had a tasting for our cupcakes (we had found that some vendors do not have tastings if you are ordering cupcakes), and the cake and cupcakes that we received on our wedding day were consistent with what we had at the tasting, which was delicious! Our contract was easy to understand, and deadlines were very clear. Our cakes and cupcakes were delivered to our venue on the day of with no issues. The design on the cakes and cupcakes were beautiful! We received many compliments about our desserts. My only regret is that I did not have a chance to eat more dessert at the reception (especially the cinnamon-brown sugar cupcakes), but we will definitely be ordering special occasion desserts from her in the future. Thanks again, Evan!!

My wedding cake from Sweets by E was even more perfect than I could have hoped for. The cake was absolutely gorgeous and tasted so delicious- I'm sad I didn't get to eat more of it during our reception. Evan was wonderful to work with. She is very responsive via email, and confirmed everything we discussed at the tasting in writing shortly after we met. Her pricing is extremely reasonable, and she was willing to adjust her normal serving size to better fit our guest list. I shared several pictures of other wedding cakes that I liked as well as pictures of our color scheme, and Evan perfectly designed a cake to match. I hope all brides are as happy as I was when I saw our cake for the first time at the reception!

Though I had originally planned to meet with several bakers before deciding on one for our wedding cake, after meeting with Evan I felt confident that Sweets by E would be the right choice, and I couldn't be happier that I made that decision!

Evan is truly a talented baker -- and so nice to work with! We ended up ordering a cinnamon brown sugar cake with cream cheese frosting in between the cake layers and buttercream frosting on the outside. The first time I had this kind of cake was during the tasting and it was absolutely delicious! We got so many compliments on the actual wedding cake as well -- all of our guests loved it!

Not only are Evan's cakes tasty, but she is such an artist. Her cakes are beautiful, and our cake was no exception. See here for a picture (http://kristengardnerphotoblog.com/allison-kevin-the-regency-at-dominion-valley/) -- you'll have to scroll down a bit.

In addition, Evan was so easy to work with. I knew I could completely trust her (because of the other beautiful cakes she has made for other weddings), which made this part of the wedding planning process so easy! I had a vision for the cake -- it combined elements of two cakes I had seen on pinterest. I showed the two pictures to Evan and she created exactly what I had hoped for. On top of all that, Evan's prices are very reasonable and she's happy to also make sheet cakes to help keep the costs down.

Finally, my husband and I were so excited when we found out that the top of the cake had been saved for us. Evan had mentioned that she could always bake us a fresh cake for our one year anniversary, so instead of freezing the cake, we decided to eat it when we got back from the honeymoon. Best decision ever (and highly recommended!). We look forward to ordering another cake from Evan in a year!

I can't recommend Evan enough -- she is a wonderful, talented baker and such a joy to work with.

She was able to do several flavors of cupcakes (including some gluten free for my aunt!) as well as a small two tier cake for us to cut/freeze and everything turned out beautifully. Additionally to how great it all tasted she also set up the cupcake display fantastically. Evan is extremely professional and her communication was effective and timely. I would highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding or other special event.

We found Sweets By E through weddingwire.com. Working with Evan, the owner and baker was incredible. After visiting three other highly reputed bakeries, and being unimpressed by the quality and pricing we encountered, we went looking for better value and better cake. We found it with Evan. We couldn't decide between the lemon cake and the red velvet cake at our tasting, and she said it was no problem to do both. We brought a copy of our invitation to the tasting, and she immediately offered up several design ideas for decorating the cake. The end result, on our wedding day, was an absolutely beautiful cake that tasted delicious and echoed the colors, designs, etc. of our invitations. It was great.

Choosing 'Sweets by E' for the big day was a fantastic choice! Evan made a beautiful, personalized, and DELICIOUS cake (which doesn't always happen when it comes to wedding cake). The last thing I wanted was to stress about more details, so I just gave her a few ideas about what I was looking for and left the rest up to her. I didn't have to worry about a thing and I couldn't have been happier with the final product. Even after the wedding, my guests couldn't stop talking about the cake!

Sweets by E made us a wedding cake and an assortment of cupcakes (including gluten-free cupcakes for our gluten-free guests) that were beautiful and delicious. Evan was a pleasure to work with -- she was responsive, she was genuinely interested in our ideas about cake design (which we didn't necessarily realize we had until we started talking with bakeries) and made great suggestions, and she worked with our budget and even suggested ways to get more out of it.

Sweets by E made us a wedding cake and an assortment of cupcakes (including gluten-free cupcakes for our gluten-free guests) that were beautiful and delicious. Evan was a pleasure to work with -- she was responsive, she was genuinely interested in our ideas about cake design (which we didn't necessarily realize we had until we started talking with bakeries) and made great suggestions, and she worked with our budget and even suggested ways to get more out of it.

Evan was a joy to work with. She offered free tastings, custom design of the cake, and a wide choice of sizes and prices. I would strongly recommend her and her delicious cakes to anyone.

Overall, Sweets by E did a great job with our wedding cake. We had some challenges arranging a time for cake tasting (admittedly, my schedule is crazy as I work out of two 4-5 days a week). When we finally did connect, we were happy with the options. I was looking for a very simple design and Evan hit the mark. My only complaint is that the top layer of the cake that we are saving for our first anniversary was made with the wrong type of cake. We wanted it to be chocolate, but got vanilla instead. Don't get me wrong, the vanilla is also good, but just not what we wanted. I would recommend Sweets by E, but make sure you validate exactly what you want/are getting so you don't get any surprises like we did.

When I initially contacted Evan, she was very responsive and helpful about my questions for the cake design and we came up with a great plan I was very excited about. My fiancé and I scheduled a cake tasting a few months before our wedding. However we were new to the area and got lost on the way due to traffic and the wrong location given in Google maps. I called E to tell her we'd be late. Once we arrived, we were very apologetic but felt like we had inconvenienced Evan even though her next appointment wasn't for 20 minutes. The appointment felt rushed and awkward. We also gave her a sample of the bridesmaid dress so she would be able to match the coloring perfectly. On the day of the wedding, I was very excited to see the design of the cake but the coloring was completely off. E left out the color of our blue bridesmaid dress completely and the gold color she used to accent the cake's details was more of a soft brown. While the cake matched the design I envisioned, I was very disappointed that the coloring was wrong, causing the cake to look dull and uninspiring. The cake tasted fine but I was not satisfied with the look of the cake overall.

Sweets by E responded with the following comments:

I am very sorry for making your feel as though your tasting was not important to me. I never meant for you to feel rushed and I apologize for any awkward interactions.

A few weeks after our initial meeting I received an email from your wedding planner regarding changes made to the size/design of the cake and I used the photo she attached in the email (with only gold accents) to assume you no longer wanted the blue of your bridesmaid dress included in the cake. I apologize for making this assumption and not double checking with you regarding the color and am extremely sorry that you were unhappy upon seeing your wedding cake.

Despite the hiccup in color, I hope you had an absolutely amazing day and wish you all the best!
