  • We booked Deborah of City Sweets only 2 weeks before our wedding and are glad that we did. We were not sold on having a cake since we were having a lot of dessert at our wedding and the cake was just another expense that kept piling on. However, Deborah totally understood our view and worked with us to find a middle ground. We knew that we wanted something elegant to compliment our classic, elegant wedding decor so simply told her in broad strokes what we wanted and let her run with it. The end result was fabulous - in both taste and design. Although we ended up going with a regular cake, I was also pleasantly surprised to see how many gluten and dairy free options she offered. I would highly recommend City Sweets.

  • The cake was amazing and we were able to design something that was unique to us and our tastes (both design and food wise.) Im just sad we didn't get to eat more of it at the wedding!

  • We originally selected City Sweets & Confections because they had amazing cake flavors. We loved our cake testing appointment with Deborah Lauren and tasted so many amazing flavors. However, we had a couple of issues with this vendor. We paid our bill in full on 4-28-15 for a September wedding. The vendor told us that she would provide a digital drawing of our cake. The vendor did not provide the digital drawing until we sent in a complain email. The drawing provided was amateurish and not what she had stated that she would provide. Then came the day of the wedding. Deborah sent someone else to deliver the cakes. That individual came with only HALF of the cakes (we had 65 three inch cakes that would be arranged in four layers leading up to a 2 tier top cake). A couple hours into the reception, the venue staff noticed that we did not have enough mini cakes for everyone. They had to call Deborah who sent the individual back with the rest of the cakes. Unfortunately for us, the cake was... Read more

  • Deborah Lauren was an absolute delight to work with. She offered a wide array of styles for our wedding cake. Not only were they absolutely stunning, but they tasted INCREDIBLE as well. There were so many different cakes and icings - we could not go wrong. In the end, we chose a delicious funfetti cake with buttercream icing. That cake, WOW! People could not get enough and were raving about it, asking for more! I would HIGHLY recommend Deborah Lauren with the utmost confidence in her ability!

  • Deborah was wonderful to work with and is truly an artist when it comes to creating cakes. She helped us design a stunning cake and using pictures of the lace on my dress, hand-piped every other layer to match it. The flowers on our cake looked so real and almost too beautiful to eat. Her cakes don't just look beautiful, they taste delicious! Deborah was helpful when choosing pairings and completely open to our ideas and suggestions. We loved working with her and highly recommend!

  • Deborah was incredibly thoughtful from start to finish. Her cakes are delicious and our wedding guests loved her Prosecco cake with three berry filling. Additionally, I have a gluten allergy and tried many bakeries that are "known" for their gluten free cakes, but Deborah makes the best. Our guests had no idea! We attended another wedding a year later and her cake was again delicious. If you want a cake that is guaranteed to be delicious City Sweets & Confections is your place.

  • When we needed a cake on somewhat short notice (about 2 weeks before our wedding), Deborah said she could do it and arranged a tasting for us on what happened to be a snowstorm that threatened to shut down the city. Not only didn't she cancel, but we stayed for hours having great conversation with her, and she was so responsive to our ideas and questions. The cake at the tasting was amazing and she lets you try a whole bunch of cake and frosting flavors when you go! We ended up with a beautiful 4-tier butter cream cake with 3 flavors (one extra tier for us to take home): Green tea/lemon frosting, Red Velvet/Mocha frosting, and Vanilla/peanut butter chocolate frosting. She is so professional and friendly and everyone raved about the taste of the cake and most people tried 2 or all 3 flavors! We can't wait to come back from our honeymoon and eat the tier we took home!

  • Deborah at City Sweets is fantastic! From the moment we spoke on the phone I knew that I wanted to hire her to create our wedding cake. At our initial meeting I brought 2-3 photos and Deborah took it from there. She offers unique flavors (champagne cake) and is a truly talented artist. Our cake was exquisite! I had asked for huge flowers made of frosting and they where everything I had envisioned and more. If you are looking for incredible service and the best cake you have ever tasted there is only one person to call.

  • Deborah was amazing! Not only was the cake PERFECT for my daughter but she was so professional from the moment I saw her website to all the times I spoke with her. The most notable of many great experiences was how willing she was to talk or communicate with me at all hours of the day. I'm sure she does not want to make a practice of that; but she took such care of getting every detail down of a vision my daughter wanted for her cake that she communicated at our convenience which was not always normal hours. City Sweets was by far the most professional and reliable vendor we have dealt with so far. Wonderful professional lady running this show.

  • Deborah at City Sweets & Confections was one of the most responsive and trustworthy vendors I worked with out of all vendors for my wedding. It was so great to work with someone who I could not only trust completely to create such a beautiful cake, but was also enjoyable to work with. I received so many compliments on how amazing the cake tasted in addition to how great it looked, I really couldn't have been happier. I would recommend Deborah to all of my friends and family.

  • So so happy with our cake! Hand painted an image of my husband and I in the middle of central park. All our guests called it "so unique and elegant", but the best was how surprised they were of how good it tasted! We couldn't make a decision on flavor so we ended up making every tier a different flavor combination - from pistachio to champagne we had it all and people really loved it. Deborah was really fun to work and collaborate with. Can't wait to eat our anniversary tier next year!

  • Deborah at City Sweets provided our wedding guests with the most delicious cake! She uses the highest quality of ingredients available and has a wide range of cake and filling flavors. She was flexible with us as we decided upon both the flavors and the design for the cake. We opted for three flavors of cake (wild strawberry, milk chocolate, and champagne) all with vanilla bean mascarpone filling, and we were so pleased with this combination! She was responsive throughout the planning process and delivered a beautiful and delicious cake to our venue on time. We highly recommend City Sweets for your special event!

  • I really loved Deborah's flavors. She did a three tier cake and copied a design I emailed her from a cake I admired. She did an amazing job and provided recommendations for fillings when I selected my cake flavors. For my wedding one tier was Coconut cake with raspberry preserve, another tier was Champagne cake with strawberry/triple berry buttercream, and the last tier was German chocolate with coconut buttercream. There were a few guests with dietary restrictions/allergies and she was accommodating to their situation by providing cupcakes without charging extra.

  • A little bit disappointed when we had said "no flowers coming down the side", and there were flowers coming down the side. Our cake was pretty, just did not meet the aesthetic specifications we had made. We enjoyed the flavors we requested in our tastings, though I do not recall having had the chance to taste them, sadly! A few guests have specifically remarked how delicious our stout and Bailey's frosting cake was, which is lovely to hear!
