San Diego Wedding Cake Reviews that we LOVE

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

At Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. we love grooms who get involved and so rarely find one like Uly. In addition to helping his gorgeous bride to design most of the reception setting, he sent us one of the most lovely, to the point, and gracious notes of thanks from a groom that we’ve ever had. While we get wonderful notes all the time from happy couples, we have never before posted them to our site…rather, they grace the hall bulletin board of our bake shop.

Today, an exception, I am including this nice note from the newly married Ulysses and Ala, truly one of the nicest couples we’ve met in a long time! They were married recently at the Estancia La Jolla – always a happy place for weddings – and were guided along by Alexandra Roselee Hatcher as coordinator. Aqua Photography provided their amazing shooting skills…
Their design was based on a beautiful invitation designed for them by Pink Star Designs the manazanita trees and bird houses that filled the ballroom…amazing floral branches with cascading crystals designed by Patrick Higgins of Artistic Florals & Plants!

“Elaine, Donna,

What an amazing cake! It was a remarkable hit at the wedding – the decoration was artistically perfect and the combination of flavors were yummy! We enjoyed working with you to make a memorable wedding cake – hopefully, the design can spark some additional business for you in the future.


Ulysses & Ala”

Maybe it’s time to start posting more of these amazing notes that we receive! We are so lucky to work for so many amazing clients!

SPAM here…Get yer Spam Cake Here!

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Sculpted Cakes are such a wacky way to express oneself and such a killer SURPRISE as a special gift that we appreciate being given the opportunity to make so many for our clients. Sometimes even we forget which one in the photo is the cake and which is the original item…!

These days the word “SPAM” connotes the evil empire of useless drivel over the web world…except at Sweet Cheeks Baking Co.
We LOVE Spam and so do some of our super fun couples! Given our military influence and San Diego’s proximity to Hawaii, there’s no wonder why there is such a fascination with this pressed-pork phenom.

We made this chocolate Spam cake for a special groom last weekend at The Omni Hotel.
All completely edible!
