Bittersweet was an amazing experience from beginning to end. From scheduling the tasting, to the actual tasting of almost everything they make, to delivery and finally EATING it, it was all wonderful. ... Read more Delicious, moist cakes, beautiful slices, more than ample amounts of cake for everyone to feel full to bursting, and a beautiful and tasteful cake design. The best part for me though was the affordability. I felt like we got $1000 worth of cake for much, much less. Highly recommended!

Guests could not stop talking about how delicious the cake was!

I am so glad that the bakery that the Odyssey Lake Michigan cruises (our wedding venue) has a contract with is Bittersweet Bakery. Nancy was so easy to work with, and so accommodating of all our ... Read more requests and the multiple times that we changed our minds about the cake design throughout the decision-making process. My husband, two sisters, and I had so much fun at the cake tasting trying out different fillings and cake flavors, and our final flavor combination picks were DELICIOUS (which Nancy helped to guide us through). Things were such a whirlwind on wedding day that my husband and I only got one small bite of cake (the one we fed each other when we cut the cake). We had been so looking forward to eating cake again on our wedding day, but we were too busy talking to guests the rest of the evening to realize that slices of cake had been put down at our table! However, we got so, so many compliments from our guests saying how good the cake was, and my husband and I are so excited to have cake again during our anniversary!
