Sweetz Bakery has THE BEST cupcakes! I can’t say enough good things about them. The icing is not overly sweet, and you can taste the real flavors coming through. I’ve tried many different cupcakes and they have all been great. We kept some in our freezer for nearly three months because we forgot they were there – still good. Price is very reasonable. Trang was mostly prompt with email responses and open to us altering the flavors or design. The cupcake display at the wedding looked great, and I think I got more comments about how delicious the cupcakes were than anything else - some people ate two or three. An extra nice touch was that Trang left some individual to-go containers for the cupcakes so we could pack them up if there were extras (we ordered more cupcakes than we had guests).

Trang's cakes are the BEST!!! I knew from the moment that I first tasted one of her cupcakes that I wanted her to do our wedding cake. My husband and I really wanted to stick with a fall theme, so we chose to have an apple cake with caramel filling and vanilla frosting. It was so delicious and all of my guests were asking where we'd got it from! I especially appreciated how Trang was willing to travel all the way out to Thurmont, MD from Leesburg, VA to bring the cake to us! She truly is a special lady and I am so thankful to her. Not only did the cake taste good, it was beautiful as well and exactly what I had envisioned! If you want a wedding cake that you'll be happy to take home the leftovers of, go with Sweetz!

The owner of Sweetz took a special request for our cake (chocolate bourbon) and it was AMAZING. Our guests commented that it was the best wedding cake they'd ever had. I have to agree, and I'm not just saying that because it was my own wedding. I'm not ashamed to admit that I ate leftover cake for breakfast two days after the wedding! The cake looked exactly like the picture I e-mailed. We got to sample lots of flavors of cupcakes (we also had 3 dozen cupcakes with the cake), and we get a free small cake on our anniversary! It's a little pricey...but you get what you pay for!

Sweetz Bakery provided the wedding cake for a small, intimate ceremony. Trang made us a small cake and two dozen cupcakes. There were more cupcakes than there were people at the wedding, and somehow we didn't have any leftovers! Even the hardest-to-please guests loved the cake, and I have been back to the storefront many times since.

Trang was responsive and helpful, able to help us with our custom topper from another source and make some last-minute changes without any trouble. Spaces are tight, so if you're in the area make sure to get on the list now! I consider myself incredibly lucky that I was able to get Sweetz to make my wedding cake. I can't wait to celebrate every anniversary with some cupcakes!

We had Trang at Sweetz Bakery create the wedding cake for our wedding. We requested a lot from her: the tier be gluten free while the bottom ones were normal cake; a design on the cake similar to our invitations; and, that all decorations be edible (ribbon and flowers). She delivered on all of it! The cake was delivered when requested to the hall and was waiting for us when we got there. It was exactly what we wanted and so beautifully done that I did not want to cut into. The cake itself tasted amazing! The guests were complementing it the entire night. Every piece cut during the reception was eaten (there was also a sweets table and a grooms cake [made by a family friend]) but they ate all of Trang's cake. What was not cut was given to my parents to take home for us - but never made it. Family stopped by my parents house the next day and the cake was set out - it was gone very quickly.

I highly recommend Trang and Sweetz Bakery for your wedding cake needs. She was extremely professional and responsive. She gave us exactly what we wanted and for a very reasonable rate (especially since her gluten free cake costs the same as regular cake).

Overall I don't see how you can dissatisfied by going with Sweetz Bakery.

I urge you to use Sweetz Bakery as your baker! Trang, our friendly, talented and helpful cake maker was wonderful to work with. She made the tasting really fun for us, too. The cake itself was heavenly. I am still getting compliments from the guests about how good our cake was. Also, her prices are reasonable. I reccommend the Boston Cream Cake filling. I didn't use a fondant icing (though she can do that, too) because I wanted a creamier frosting. Our frosting was delicious and beautiful. The cake was moist and flavorful. It was decorated beautifully with blue icing with chocolate details.

Trang, of the local SweetzBakery from Leesburg did an amazing job on our one-of-a-kind cake. Going from a paper design she sketched and seeing it for the first time, then tasting the cake, OMG! Trang surpassed our expectations for what we thought our wedding cake would be. Treat yourself to her Sweetz, by stopping by her kiosk/stand located just outside the food court on the upper level of the Dulles Town Center Mall.

I provided Sweetz Bakery with some images and ideas of what I wanted the cake to look like and it arrived on my wedding day looking exactly like I had envisioned it. She went out of her way to find the exact leaves and fruit that I wanted placed on the cake. Her specialty is carrot so one layer was carrot, the other orange...and they were both AMAZING. People are literally still talking about the cake. It was like having a beautiful wedding cake on the outside and your grandmother's home made cake on the inside. The woman who runs Sweetz is so nice and her baking is delicious....there is no way you will be disappointed if you choose Sweetz Bakery for your wedding cake!

From the beginning of our wedding planning process we knew that we would prefer to offer cupcakes as opposed to a full wedding cake. Since cupcakes typcially don't require as much time, we put booking a cake vendor off until about a month or so before the wedding. Trang really stepped in and saved us. During our tasting we had so many delicious cakes, and knew immediately that we would be going with her. Her cakes are light and flavorful, and the whipped cream frosting is wonderful. It was a welcome change to some of the more dense cupcakes we have tried before. We were able to provide our guests with 5 different flavor cupcakes. She was also willing to make all of the cupcakes similar, so they would look cohesvie on the cupcake tower. Trang was also able to provide to us a 6 inch cake to put our cake topper on and be able to cut. We were very disappointed to come home from our honeymoon and discover that there were no leftover cupcakes, as we didn't get to try any during our reception. We can't wait for our anniversary cake, and will most likely be making a few trips to her kiosk at Dulles Towne Center before then to pick up cupcakes.

They made us a cake that was gluten free and lactose free and tasted like heaven. No one suspected it had no flour or dairy in it, it was a really moist and yummy banana cake with white frosting. It was about half the price of other gluten free bakeries we had checked out previously, and tasted so much better!
The decorations were beautiful as well, and although we ordered at the last minute, everything was just as we had hoped, and delivered on time.
Great service!

Trang Bowers owns Sweetz Bakery in Leesburg, VA. She is awesome. We met with her for a tasting and we wanted to bring back with us all of her cakes, cupcakes, etc... that day. That is how good she is. She made our wedding cake and it was beautiful. All of our guests raved about the cake. There was none left at the end of our wedding reception. Her cakes are very affordable and she is great to work with. Trang even has a kiosk at Dulles Town Center with all of her goodies, ie...cupcakes, cakes, etc... As part of her package, she will make us a 6 inch top portion of our wedding cake on our first wedding anniversary. That is part of the package. We would recommend using her for all occassions. Thank you Trang.

Sweetz Bakery was a pleasure to work with from the start. Our cake tasting was fantastic and we knew from the first bite we had found the right place. Trang makes the best tasting cupcakes in all of Northern Virginia and we've tried quite a few. She was super flexible and made the entire process easy and stress free. She even accommodated the mother of the groom's long list of allergies and made a special cupcake just for her. Our guests couldn't stop raving about how delicious and beautiful they were. We often find ourselves stopping by the Dulles storefront to get some more.

Trang made a large variety of gorgeous cupcakes for our wedding in December. I was a bit nervous that cupcakes might look cheap or less elegant than traditional wedding cake, but it really was beautiful and unique. In terms of taste, the cupcakes were probably the element of our wedding that people complimented the most. When we went for a tasting during the planning process, I simply could not decide on one combination so we went with several of each!

I have had many desserts in my life but her cupcakes were extraordinarily delicious. My husband and I still catch ourselves craving them even months later!

We could not have been happier with the results! Thanks for everything Trang!

My husband and I loved working with Trang! She was extremely responsive...she always called us back the same day. Her cake tasting was amazing. She asked what we wanted and she prepared those samples as well as several other alternatives. They were all delicious so making a decision was challenging. For our wedding we served lemon cake with raspberry mouse filling and red velvet cake with cream cheese filling. The cake was amazing! The frosting was very decadent and paired well with the cake. Our guests raved about the cake. The design of the cake was perfect! We can't wait to eat our anniversary cake!
