Where Art and Cake Connect
City Sweets is a couture cake art studio that specializes in creating beautiful, delicious and unique
We believe that a wedding cake should be an incredibly delicious, unique work of art. We offer custom designed cakes because your wedding cake should be as unique as you are. Founded in 2000, we are where art and cake connect.
The origin of the wedding cake is traceable back to ancient Rome, long before the invention of sugar flowers, buttercream or fondant. At an ancient Roman wedding, a barley cake was eaten by the groom with the remnants broken over the bride’s head to symbolize her fertility and his dominance. In today’s times, it is usually the happy bride who is in control of her own wedding cake! At City Sweets, we believe it has become a symbolic representation of the happy couple, a artistic centerpiece of the wedding and something your guests will talk about long after your wedding day has taken place. We often hear back from our couples about how their guests told them
it was the most beautiful and delicious wedding cake they’ve ever had!
Our wedding cakes are covered in fine imported Swiss fondant
Our wedding cakes are covered in fine Swiss fondant, with no chemicals, preservatives or gelatin (perfect
for vegan, gluten-free or kosher-style weddings) and won’t be peeled off and left on the plates by your guests! Wedding cakes should not only be beautiful to
the eye, but to the sense of taste as well. We use the best ingredients we can get our oven mitts on. We did a lot of taste testing using different
ingredients and chose the ones with the most popular results for our recipes. The winners also happen to be of very fine quality, and more often than not,
imported from Europe and particularly France. People who think they hate fondant wedding cakes will love ours!
We use Valrhona chocolate because we believe that a chocolate cake or buttercream icing should taste like real, rich, decadent chocolate, not the color brown. We use vanilla from Madagascar because we think it tastes the best. We use butter with a high butter fat content so our cakes stay moist and delicious. We use oils, not extracts because we feel they yield a much more delicious result. Our buttercream frosting is most popular for good reason! Lovingly made with sweet butter and pure madagascar vanilla, real dairy products give our buttercream its pale, yet warm, ivory tint. Whisper light and naturally delicious, this creamy frosting is the perfect complement to any wedding cake or confection. Our cakes are first iced in buttercream to create a perfectly smooth surface for the fondant.
Our hand sculpted sugar flowers are often mistaken for the real thing. All the flowers you see in our portfolio
are made from sugar. We can create any flower in any color to match your bouquet, centerpieces or vision.
Our wedding cakes are recognized as artistic, unique, elegant and beautiful. They have won both awards and
fans worldwide. Each cake is unique, designed specifically for you. After you’ve had your tasting and you book us to create your wedding cake, we will work with
you, sending you sketches via email until you have the perfect cake you’ve always dreamed of. We can use elements from your wedding invitations, a detail from
your wedding dress or anything at all that you love.
Sometimes our cakes are simple, classic, modern or contemporary with just a single giant sugar peony. Sometimes they’re lavishly embossed and gilded silver, pearl or even gold with a variety of cascading sugar flowers from top to bottom. Sometimes they’re neither of these. There are absolutely no rules when it comes to wedding cakes any longer. The tradition of the all-white vanilla cake has long faded away, leaving room for whatever it is that will make your heart happy and complement your wedding perfectly, in both style and taste. With over 50 flavors to choose from,
our vast menu has flavor favorites for everyone everywhere.
