I live in Southern California which is foodie heaven. I'm spoiled when it comes to cupcakes because there are quite a few bakeries near me that I love. I was planning a destination wedding and I couldn't rely on my taste buds for the very first time. Picking a baker felt like a shot in the dark. I had to rely on referrals and sheer instinct.
Here's the thing. On 2 separate occasions,I had two different vendors in Estes Park refer Becka at Sweet Celebration to me. Estes Park is a small town and my instincts were telling me that the locals would know who was legit (and who wasn't.) I spoke with Becka and I could tell she was the real deal and hired her.
The real taste test came on my wedding day. My husband and I cut the cake and the first bite was DELICIOUS! We also ordered cupcakes and chocolate covered strawberries which I was thankful for because they were nom nom nom good! I've got sophisticated taste buds so trust me when I say the desserts were two foodie thumbs up! I had asked Becka to set aside cupcakes and strawberries ahead of time and I'm sooo glad I did. I devoured them the next day. My guests loved Becka's desserts as much as I did. They were moist, balanced and wonderfully flavorful. I'm just mad I'm in California and she's all the way in CO. Otherwise, I'd be a regular customer in her...
From the beginning we knew we did not want the traditional wedding cake, but something more to our taste. We decided on mini cheesecakes in a variety of flavors, but I was having trouble finding what i was looking for. Then I came across Sweet Celebration on my venues website. Becka had everything we were looking for plus more, so we set up a taste test. We ended up bringing both sets of parents with us and she had made plenty for us all to try! She made the best cheesecake that I have ever had! We were all in dessert heaven! We chose 4 flavors with two diffent sizes and fruit trays. Becka created a beautiful display and everyone really enjoyed the variety. I was hoping that we would have more to take home with us... but the little bit that we did take home, tasted just as good as the first time!
Becka did a fantastic job with our desserts! The presentation of the desserts was beautiful and everyone raved about how good it all tasted. It was very easy to deal with Becka, she is very professional and the prices are reasonable. I would highly recommend using her for your wedding!
Sweet Celebration provided all that we asked for and at a very reasonable price. Before the wedding, they hosted my family and friends so we could all taste the cupcakes that would be prepared for the wedding.
Their service on the day of the wedding was exceptional--no problems despite our inability to keep in constant communication (due to our hectic schedule as bride and groom). Becka Carlson needed minimal guidance and provided an outstanding service.
I would recommend this vendor to anybody getting married in the Estes Park region.
We ordered cupcakes and a small cake "topper" through Becka at Sweet Celebration. The cupcakes were delicious, and her display was wonderful. We tasted them in advance so knew exactly what we were getting. Becka was easy to work with and had the cupcakes and display completed on time!
Becka doesn't normally do wedding cakes but I didn't really want a normal wedding cake! I wanted cupcakes with a small cake on top to do the traditional cutting. This ended up being (what I think) was the best looking wedding cake ever! And not to mention the fact that you don't have to have someone to cute the cake but you also get to have different flavors. Beautiful!
Hello! My name is Becka Carlson and I am an avid baker! I get great pleasure out of creating sweet delights, and after many suggestions to go into business, here I am! I have started a small venture of chocolate fountains (catering for any type of event), desserts and other baked goods. I have acquired the use of a licensed kitchen here in Estes Park, and hope to grow into a name known for spectacular desserts!
And oh yes, the chocolate fountains! What fun! People just rave over these fountains, some stand there in total amazment, and everyone enjoys this delicious experience!
