Carolyn is truly talented! Many, many of our guests RAVED about the cupcakes! Unfortunately, I didn't get to try one, but the cake she baked for my husband and I to cut into was absolutely amazing! Carolyn is very sweet, professional and, responsive. She was also very flexible and ran with some of my ideas to display the cupcakes. She was very responsive throughout the process and we couldn't be happier about the outcome of our cake/cupcakes!

We had a dessert bar, but wanted a small cutting cake for our daughter's wedding. Carolyn (the owner) did a wonderful job designing a cake that had a similar look to Laine's wedding dress (little edible buttons and everything). It was a great combination of cute, yet elegant. After tasting it, all of us agreed, "We need a bigger cake!!". Beautiful job, Carolyn :).

Carolyn provided us with the most delicious wedding cake! Our special day was amazing because of the love she put into it. We also had delicious rice Krispy treats and cookies that made our dessert table a huge hit, especially with the kids. It was such an honor to work with Carolyn, she is one of the kindest ladies we have ever met. Anytime we need anything sweet in the future we will definitely be using Your Sweet Expectations.

Carolyn made cupcakes and a small cutting cake for our wedding on August 2. She is easy to work with, and very sweet! During our phone consultation, she had helpful advice about how many cupcakes we would need and what flavors to choose. The cupcakes were arranged beautifully when we entered the reception hall, and our guests raved about how delicious they were! The cutting cake was also beautiful and delicious. Very reasonably priced! Thank you Carolyn!

We LOVED our wedding cake - both the appearance and taste! Carolyn at Your Sweet Expectations was immediately responsive to my inquiries and was quite flexible when it came to setting up a time for a tasting. I have a gluten intolerance, so Carolyn suggested doing a gluten-free top layer, which I was so happy about (and it was yummy)! For the rest of the cake, we did a white/champagne cake with a raspberry cream filling. We got so many comments from guests on how delicious and moist the cake was, and my husband was still enjoying the leftovers days later :) Our cake was absolutely beautiful. It made for a stunning piece of decor at the wedding, and looks gorgeous in photos! We couldn't be happier!

We ordered our cake from Carolyn for our wedding in July. 1. It looked so pretty. The colors were exactly as I wanted, and she was kind enough to indulge my late request of adding little airplanes on to the cake. 2. My guests LOVED the cake. It was champagne cake with raspberry creme filling in one layer and lemon creme filling in another layer, with Carolyn's special whipped cream/cream cheese icing. The guests devoured the entire cake before I could even try one of the favors. 3. The cake was on-time and she worked well with our caterer/venue and florist to make sure it had a lovely display.

Carolyn created the cake for our wedding on September 7th, 2013 and it was amazing! We were sold on Carolyn's cakes from the moment we took our first bite at our tasting. For our wedding Carolyn created a 3 tiered cake with two flavors: chocolate/raspberry and lemon/lemon cream, both with her signature whipped cream cream cheese frosting. It was insanely delicious and people raved about the cake. I highly recommend Carolyn and will definitely be ordering cakes from her again!

Carolyn was absolutely wonderful to work with! She was as sweet as can be; my grandmother, mother and I all fell in love with her from the first consultation. (Of course, it didn't hurt that the cakes we sampled were DELICIOUS!!!) As opposed to many of our vendors, she was quick to respond to emails and phone calls. She was flexible in working with our vision and our wedding cake came out absolutely beautifully. We received many compliments on both the design and the taste. My husband and I are hoping that she is still making cakes ten years from now when we renew our vows, as we would love an excuse to buy another! Overall, we would highly recommend Your Sweet Expectations.

Let's be honest, sometimes wedding cake is just cake. Not at all the case with Your Sweet Expectations. Carolyn wow'd us at our tasting with her WCCI frosting and her sweet personality. We had cupcakes and a small cutting cake for our wedding and they turned out beautiful. I over ordered the number of cupcakes that Carolyn recommended and am glad that I did. Our guests gobbled them up in minutes with many of them returning for seconds or thirds. We had planned to keep our cutting cake to celebrate throughout the year but couldn't resist and ate the rest of it with our close family the next day. We received many many compliments on our cupcakes. I can't wait to order another cake from her on our first anniversary!

Wanted a cake with silk butterflies cascading up the side for our renewal ceremony/party. The celebration was being held at Safari West so transportation and heat might have been an issue. But not for Carolyn! We had fun at the cake tasting and picking butterfly colors. Carolyn arrived early to the event and had called ahead to make sure the fridge had the space for our cake. The cake was beautiful and tasted great.

Her amazing value is undeniable and it's always great to have something a little different than every other bride (i.e. her WCCC frosting!) She is very responsive to communications whether it be email or by phone. Delivery was on time, professional and the cake was GORGEOUS!

I cannot say enough nice things about Your Sweet Expectations. Carolyn is not only warm and friendly but also thorough and makes sure every detail is done to perfection. Her prices are reasonable and my cake was a hit at our wedding. Since then she has made my son's first birthday cake as well as other birthday occasions for family members. I would recommend Your Sweet Expectations to anyone looking for someone to make their wedding cake.

Carolyn is A-MAZ-ING!!!!!!!!!!!! I went to several Wedding Expos and tried the wedding cake samples, and HANDS DOWN Carolyn's cakes blows everyone else out of the water!

We sat down, and we discussed what we wanted our wedding cake to look like, and it came out BEAUTIFUL! We also had private discussions on the groom's cake which we made as a surprise to the groom (it was actually a fruit tart, but the top was covered in frosted foam--to look like cake--a bit of a gag on him) and the "fake" cake looked good enough to eat!

Again I can't recommend Your Sweet Expectations any higher! Her cake was SO GOOD we even ordered a "mini" wedding cake to take with us on our honeymoon :) And the Groom normally HATES cake--but he happily gobbled up the Red Velvet!

Carolyn was a dream come true!

We had been searching for the perfect red velvet cake, with frosting that wasn't too sweet / creamy or over the top in any way. Just delicious.

After visiting over 8 bakeries around SF and the Bay Area, we decided to try a couple closer to our venue in Sonoma. The first was a waste of time, the cake wasn't even red! The second, was Your Sweet Expectations.

Just meeting Carolyn we knew we'd met the perfect person to bake our wedding cake. There's something so nice and genuine about her, which makes you want to sign up immediately. My hubby had bad allergies, so could barely taste anything and yet he loved the samples she laid out for us. She's also the first person to have given us two separate portions, everyone else made us share, which ofcourse means you don't get to taste / enjoy all of it for yourself :)

Anyway, Carolyn packed us a to-go bag so that hubby could try the cake + fillings/frostings the following morning when his allergies would have subsided. We signed up with her before we left because we knew we wanted to work with her. But we decided on our fillings after tasting them at home one last time the following day.

Our cake on the day was PHENOMENAL!!! Our guests are still raving about how delicious it was. Plus, we have frozen what's left of our separate 9 inch cake (which Carolyn threw in for free because of our limited budget - I'm telling you this woman is the best!) which we will savor and enjoy to relive the moments from our wedding.

We chose a double layer: Red Velvet Cake, chocolate truffle in the center, butter cream frosting on the two outer layers and her signature WCCI (whipped cream cheese icing) on the outside. *sigh* It was OOTW (out of this world).

I was from Pennsylvania and my husband lives in Santa Rosa. I was lost in knowing who to have for our bakery for our special wedding cake. We choose Carolyn to make our dream wedding cake. The wedding cake resembled our journey into our life together. The cake tasted as beautiful as it looked. It was the most perfect and beautiful master piece I have ever seen. Thank you Carolyn.

This was the best cake I've ever had in my life! We met with Carolyn to do a tasting at her home. We tried the white cake with strawberry filling and the chocolate with almond filling, both with her signature WCCCI (whipped cream cream cheese icing) (the BEST!). We loved them both, and chose those flavors for our cake. About a month or so later, we went to the food tasting at our venue, and Carolyn happened to be there with her red velvet cake and lemon cake. The lemon cake was delicious, but we're not really lemon people. The red velvet? To. Die. For. Absolutely amazing. Right then we changed our order to have the top and bottom layers the red velvet with custard filling, and white cake with strawberry filling for the middle, all with the WCCCI. The cake decoration was absolutely beautiful. It was exactly what I envisioned, and more. I LOVED it. And the flavors were a hit as well! We couldn't wait to save the top layer for our anniversary; we ate it the week following the wedding! We plan to either get a small red velvet cake for our anniversary, or cupcakes.

We loved the cakes and flavors so much, we got both our kids' birthday cakes from Carolyn. We got the white with strawberry for our daughter, in a princess cake (so cute!) and the chocolate with custard for our son (so good!!). The price is right, and we will continue to get our cakes from Carolyn, as well as refer anyone and everyone we know (I've already referred a friend to her for her husband's birthday).

I am picky when it comes to cakes, I don't like butter cream icing, and I wanted a cake that tasted as good as it looked. Luckily my wedding planner referred me to Carolyn.

Carolyn made us the BEST wedding cake my husband and I and any of our guests had ever had. We had about 140 people at our Sonoma wedding, and our giant 4 tier cake was demolished in minutes. I've never seen an entire wedding cake get eaten before and definitely not that fast. Luckily the caterers squirreled away a few pieces for us to enjoy later. Get the WCCCI icing!

Not only did all three flavors (carrot, chocolate, white cake with fresh strawberries) taste amazing, the cake looked gorgeous, and was beautifully decorated with both icing details and fresh flowers.

Carolyn was great to work with, my Structural Engineer dad was very impressed with the cake assembly the morning of the wedding, and her prices are very reasonable. We can't wait commission an anniversary cake from her in the future.

Carolyn from Your Sweet Expectations is amazing to work with. She is very sweet and designs beautiful cakes that look like fondant, but taste delicious! We got red velvet with her signature whip cream and cream cheese frosting. It was amazing! We booked her based on the frosting alone, but our cake came out better than we even expected. We had a small wedding, but even with two tiers she used ribbon around the base and a design on each tier using that same frosting. The cake looks beautiful in our wedding pictures and tasted great, we got many compliments from our guests.

Our wedding cake was amazing! Carolyn is a delight to work with and puts so much thought and love into her amazing creations. We met only once to talk about what kind of cake I wanted and I had a picture of it in my head and when I saw it at the wedding it was exactly the cake I had dreamt about! It was so beautiful and delicious! Carolyn's signature WCCI icing is to die for as well. Instead of saving our top layer for our 1 year anniversary, we served it at our post wedding brunch the next day! Why wait a year for more of this amazing cake???!!!
I cannot recommend Carolyn and Your Sweet Expectations enough. Simply amazing!!!

The cake was great and they were very professional. It looked beautiful and it tasted amazing. I had alot of my quests come up to me after the wedding and tell me how great my cake was. They were also understanding when I made a change a week before the wedding. The only complaint I would have to say is they are kind of hard to get ahold of and they are not great about returning calls. I would still recommend them. The finished product was beautiful and I am happy with how everything turned out.
