The 2019 wedding season was wonderful (and we still have a few more to go) and the planning for 2020 weddings is in full swing and we are getting many requests for tastings. It's never too early to plan! You can get plenty of information on these pages about our wedding cakes before scheduling a tasting.

All of our cakes are made fresh from scratch, and customized exactly the way you want it. Buttercream is still front and center for wedding cakes, and we love the textured finishes and designs we're requested to do. From elegant wedding cakes to whimsical birthday cakes, our goal is to create a custom centerpiece for your event that will not only wow your guests but leave them asking for more. Visit our Cakes page for more details, including our gluten-free and dairy-free offerings. Dessert spreads are crazy popular today for weddings! Your guests will be wowed with tea cookies, fruit tarts, pies, donuts, and macarons. 


Consultations are scheduled by appointment only. We do not accommodate walk-ins or same-day requests. If you would like to schedule a tasting, please fill out our Contact Form here to make an appointment.

the buttercream experts

Because of the surge in reality TV shows that feature bakeries, the art of creating beautiful and festive cakes has come to be appreciated by many. Thanks to these shows, "fondant" has practically become a household name. While at Sweet & Savory we love to use fondant as a material in decorating, we believe there is nothing better than a moist delicious cake smothered in BUTTERCREAM. Buttercream has made an incredible comeback with many new techniques that brides love, particularly textured finishes that complement rustic-themed weddings, as well as ruffle and ribbon effects. There are so many great designs we can do with buttercream. Let us show you!

We are best known for our European buttercream made with sugar, egg whites, and butter – that's it. It's a little less sweet than the American version (but we can do that, too). And we have found that most wedding guests also prefer buttercream over fondant. Having said that, we won't limit ourselves and we're certainly happy to do fondant cakes if you choose. Sometimes a particular design looks best in fondant. But we encourage you to consider having a buttercream cake because after all, 

we are …
