  • Having a beautiful and delicious wedding cake is so important for any wedding. Carolyn at Your Sweet Expectations made the process very easy, stress-free and of course, delicious! We quickly made our decisions for a two-tier wedding cake with real flowers. Our wedding cake was superb and we highly recommend this place!

  • Carolyn created a beautiful two-tier cake for our small 50-person wedding and it was absolutely perfect. We opted for white cake with buttercream icing and layers of raspberry cream and fresh raspberry. YUM. Many of our guests commented that it was the best cake they'd had at a wedding and I wholeheartedly agree! Carolyn was easy to work with, responsive, and so kind. Highly recommend!

  • We LOVED working with Carolyn and her team at Your Sweet Expectations. The shop is adorable, and the staff was a delight to work with. We had already arranged for a variety of desserts at the wedding, but wanted a small two-tier celebratory cake. Carolyn perfectly captured our vision with a simple but elegant design, which packed a lot of flavor. They have several options to choose from, fillings and icing, but we went with the pink champagne cake with raspberry/cream and cream cheese fillings and the whipped cream cheese icing. SOOO YUMMY. The cake tasted so good that we regretted not ordering a larger one. We definitely recommend this bakery. They are very easy to work with, responsive, and deliver too! A huge THANK you to Your Sweet Expectations team. We’ll be back for more tasty treats soon.

  • We had a destination wedding this July in Rohnert Park and Carolyn was awesome to work with for our wedding cake. We unfortunately didn't have the pleasure to meet her in person and do tastings as my husband and I don't live in California but we are so glad we went with Your Sweet Expectations. After a couple phone conversations with Carolyn we decided to play it safe and stick with a 3 tier Vanilla cake (2 tiers of chocolate icing and 1 strawberry!) and it turned out AMAZING. I wish I wasn't the bride so I could have indulged in a few slices. It was so beautifully decorated and our friends and family said it was the BEST cake they've ever had - I have to agree.

  • Caroline and her team did our wedding cake and cupcakes this year, and everything was phenomenal! After helping to coordinate a special tasting event to my specifications, we officially selected them, and Caroline worked with me personally to ensure that we had the right selection, flavors, and pricing. She took care of everything, making it a no-stress situation, and was flexible in coordinating the return of their cake stand. Oh, and the cake was DELICIOUS!!

    Thank you Corinn. It was a pleasure creating your cakes and working with you. Very Best to you.

  • We has Carolyn do the wedding cake and dessert bar for my daughters wedding at Silverado Resort. Carolyn and her staff are amazing, we could not have asked for a better vendor. The cake was beyond our expectation and tasted amazing. They also provided a dessert bar that was over the top. If anyone is getting married definitely use them you will not be disappointed and extremely affordable what else could anyone want.

    Thank you so much for your review Carol! So glad all were happy! Merry Christmas

  • Carolyn was a joy to work with from day one! I can't say enough about what a wonderful woman she is and how easy she made all the dessert planning for our wedding. The cake, cupcakes, mini cheesecakes and cookies were all delicious and beautifully presented. Our guests raved about all of them. I highly recommend Carolyn and Your Sweet Expectations bakery - you will not be disappointed! Thank you, Carolyn, for making our wedding day extra special!

  • Carolyn and her team have the absolute cutest shop in the Sonoma County area, and they provided our wedding cake as part of our package from the Fairview at Foxtail Golf Course. Honestly, I am so pleased with our choices! We set up an appointment with Carolyn a few months before the wedding, and she was running a little behind. To make up for this, they gave us some complimentary coffee and a treat. (Ooey gooey cake is freaking amazing, in case you missed it.) When we did get to the tasting, it was SO MUCH FUN. She brings out a little tray of different cakes, different fillings, and then the two different icings that she offers. Pro-tip, both icings are great but they're known for their Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Icing (WCCCI) so just save yourself the trouble and just go with that. As for the different cakes and fillings, there are so many options and so many varieties and so many combinations in turn! For a full listing of what they have available, see their website.

  • The short version: You simply cannot choose a better cake vendor than Carolyn at Sweet Expectations. The longer version: I met Carolyn at a wedding expo and was honestly surprised that I liked the samples - this is no reflection on her presentation, as the samples were beautiful and she was very pleasant, I just happen to be a vanilla/lemon only kind of gal. With neither of my go-to flavors on the sample tray, I tried a champagne cake with her signature whipped-cream-cream-cheese icing. In addition to being a vanilla gal, I hate cream cheese frosting, but the sample was hands down amazing, and blew all other samples that day out of the water. The moment my now-husband heard that I actually enjoyed a cream cheese frosting, he said to book a tasting. Carolyn came to the sampling meeting bearing a large platter with more cake, frosting, and filling options that we knew what to do with, and every single one was great. Well, that tasting sealed the deal and we ordered our wedding cake on t... Read more

  • I talked to Your Sweet Expectations. Gave them all the information they could need to get the ball rolling; simple 3 tier with no decorations, butter cream with broad etching design. She gave me a quote and asked for some pictures. That next week I sent her what I wanted and she wrote back with a $100 more to the quote. When I asked why, it wasn't because she thought the design was more elaborate or I added anything extra. The raise in price was because she had quoted me last years prices. It's September, how can you for get what your prices have been for the last 9 months!?! She gave me an option that would meet the price she originally quoted but it was going from 3 tier to 2 tier. Why do I need to lose what I want because she can't stand by her original quote. I didn't appreciate this just weeks before my wedding with everything else I'm dealing with. Not a great start to a business relationship. Needless to say I found a new bakery that was happy to squeeze me into their schedule ... Read more
