  • Sweet Cheeks Bakery made my wedding cake and I could not be happier I went with them! I got married at Coasterra and my wedding package included a cake from 1 of 3 bakeries. In reviewing the options I went with Sweet Cheeks as I liked the aesthetic of the cake designs I saw online. Even during a pandemic the service was fantastic. I did a pick up cake tasting and chose the marbled love flavor (highly recommend) and sent my preferred design which was covered in the package with the venue. My guests loved the cake and I will definitely use them again for special events!

    Thank you so much for choosing us amongst the options, Natalie! What a beautiful review to see, thank you. So happy that you loved your wedding cake - that Marbled with Love is just a delicious choice, yummmm... We wish you & Joseph years of wonderful love, health, and happiness together! Yes, for SURE come back and see us for any cakes or desserts, we'd love to see you again. Elaine, AKA "The Right Cheek"

  • The cake was prettier than I imagined. She made exactly what I wanted from the picture I sent her. Was slightly disappointed when the miniature cupcakes I bought as well all fell during delivery and we're unedible

  • From start to finish, Sweet Cheeks baking made our wedding dreams a reality! Elaine and her entire staff were so amazing throughout the entire process from selecting wedding cake flavors, to design to delivery. They are an incredible team and it shows through the service you receive. Elaine and her team helped us design a unique hand-painted wedding cake for our reception and a wonderful Groom’s Cake surprise for my husband during our friends and family after-party. The cake itself – let’s just say DELICIOUS!...And we visited a few bakeries for taste testings in the area before making our final selection. Hands down – Sweet Cheeks far surpassed the rest. Our guests ranted and raved about the taste of the cake! Elaine and her Sweet Cheeks team absolutely nailed it! Your clear and only choice for the most important day of your life is Sweet Cheeks Baking! You will not be disappointed!

  • We live in the Sacramento, CA area and had planned a small destination wedding in San Diego. We relied solely on reviews to pick our vendors for the event. From my first contact to my very last, everyone I dealt with was so helpful, polite and accommodating. I had a very vague idea of what I wanted, but after speaking with Elaine and answering a few questions, she came up with a beautiful design which fit us perfectly. Her creativity and expertise showed in the simple but elegant design which matched elements of my dress. She is truly an artist. The cake was so delicious, moist, creamy and the tiramisu filling was incredible. Elaine and crew deserve a "10" in our book!

    Cathy, what a DREAM you were to work for, we can only say "THANKS TO YOU" for letting us play a small part of this very beautiful occasion! You gave us a very cool dress design (mid-century white on white, tre chic!), so that certainly made our job easier. I commend Britt, our decorator who completed the job for you with her attention to detail & pearl. Lovely! Yum, so glad you loved the Tiramisu cake! Thanks so much again, we hope you'll reach out to us next time you know someone is San Diego who needs delicious sweets! Elaine

  • We used Sweet Cheeks for our wedding cake and desserts as they were part of our wedding package at Lomas Santa Fe Country Club. Our cake was beautiful and our mini desserts super cute! The quality of their cake and desserts is excellent. All of our guests enjoyed the cake and desserts. Although my husband and I didn't get to taste too many desserts during our wedding, during our pre-wedding tasting, we were impressed!

    Wonderful news, Melissa! Sounds like you need to come back in some time and get some more treats for yourselves... We'd love to see you again. I'm so happy that you loved everything, thank you very much for your great review! Elaine

  • We had a casual wedding celebration, and wanted our cake to reflect that. I didn't give too much direction so that I would be a bit surprised, and they did such a wonderful job!! We had funfetti and vanilla/chocolate marble as different tiers, and guests raved that both tasted amazing. Sweet Cheeks did an amazing job and were super easy to work with remotely.

    YESSSSSS...!! So great to see your wonderful review, thank you Erin! You picked such fun flavors to match your fun-spirited celebration, I'm thrilled that you loved your experience and your cake. Wishing you so much happiness, love, and health for a future together! Elaine & Team Cheeks

  • Sweet Cheeks delivered everything we wanted. We did not want a cake at all! We wanted a fun dessert bar, which we got! Lauren and her team were receptive to our ideas and flavors. We asked for a few special things and they found a way to make it happen. Very helpful and quick to respond to emails. And the desserts were freakin' amazing!! We got 7 different types of desserts, and all were fabulous. Especially the Bomb Diggity!!! Thank you!

    Thank you SO MUCH, Brian, for your awesome review and even more awesome kindness as a client! Lauren so enjoyed working with you & David. It was truly OUR pleasure to help you celebrate this milestone in your lives together. Wishing you many years of love, health, and joy! Please come see us again for your future party deliciousness, Elaine

  • Though it’s not done often out here on the West Coast, I wanted to get my husband a surprise Groom’s cake for our wedding! I have a friend in the industry, and she said that Sweet Cheeks was the best place for me – I am so happy I listened! My contact via e-mail was Kristy, and she was prompt, specific, and courteous, which were all things I was looking for in a vendor. I had very specific design ideas, and after Kristy helped me understand pricing, she scheduled me to come in for a tasting. Choosing to hire Sweet Cheeks Bakery is the easy part – the only complicated part is deciding on flavors! I met with Elaine, who is charming and amazingly helpful. She even sketched out my Pac Man and Ms. Pac Man design (using a variety of colored pencils), and took very specific notes to ensure the bakers and designers understood my wishes. She even gave me the excellent idea of using books in lieu of a cake plate! I chose some well-known financial and leadership books from hom... Read more

  • The cake was AMAZING! Everything was exactly what I envisioned but I didn't even have to tell you of course! Again thank you so much Lauren for all of your advice & helping me find Korie! My "best day ever" would not have happened without the team of vendors you referred us to. It was a pleasure meeting with you to discuss cake design. Again thank you and your team!

  • We hired Sweet Cheeks Baking to do desserts and our cake for our wedding in March 2018 and were beyond happy with their work! We worked primarily with Elaine and she made the process really easy. We met for a sampling and consultation and she was able to get a sense of our taste and guide us through what would be best for us. She did an awesome job personalizing the desserts and their arrangement to us and our wedding. Communication was great throughout the process, and Elaine showed up right on time at the venue and arranged the desserts and rented platters gorgeously. The desserts looked and tasted fantastic and were a huge hit with the guests. If you need desserts for an event, definitely call Sweet Cheeks Baking!

    Oh my goodness, somehow I missed seeing your 5* review, Sam, and you KNOW how much I loved working with you & Stephanie at the Safari Park!!! It was just the BEST WEDDING to witness, so happy for you two! We hope to see you again soon, please give us a call for any party treats. Wishing you the most wonderful first year anniversary - I certainly plan to see you in March... Elaine

  • We met Lauren when we came for a consult and to pick up our tasting. She is so sweet and genuine that we left hoping we would like the samples because we liked her so much more than the people we’d met at another option. Lauren sketched a quick beautiful cake and was willing to add our florals which was a big plus for us since I was hoping to do the décor myself without hiring a florist. Fortunately, the samples were fantastic, and Lauren was great over email with recommendations for complimentary flavors to help us make final decisions. We ended up with tiramisu cake with the white chocolate mouse & chocolate whip and citrus cake with lemon buttercream & raspberry buttercream/crème. Our cake was so delicious that after the cake cutting and a bite each, we ended up standing by the cake table and devouring the entire piece. At our table, we later enjoyed both flavors and my mouth waters when I see the pictures. Thank you Sweet Cheeks and especially Lauren!

    Dear Sharon, we are over the MOON with your wonderful review, thank you for sharing your love for us! Lauren's heart grew 3 times when she read it. So great, thank you again.

  • Best ever! Lauren was the most creative and fun cake consultant (??) to work with - she was positive and so responsive even when she was out of the office working on other weddings. Sweet Cheeks handled my wedding cake as well as other cookies and desserts for the dessert table. Everything was beautiful! The cake was breathtaking and the personalized cookies with our names on them really were that special extra touch!
