Sweet Memories Bakery

Just met with Sweet Memories Bakery and the cake is to die for. I think it may have been the best cake I have ever taste! If you’re in the Raleigh area you have to check them out. I was very hesitant at first, I read a lot of mixed reviews about them-mostly that the staff wasn't very kind-but I don't know if they have hired some new people or what but they were all very kind to my fiance and me. We met with Alli and she really made up feel welcome and comfortable. She and Donna (the owner) we excited about our idea and were very accommodating-my fiance can't have chocolate- and they were fantastic about helping us create taste flavor that were chocolate free! The only negative thing was the cost. The price per slice wasn't that high 4.50/serving for a 3 tier with 3 different cake flavors and 2 different fillings per tier, but we have to pay design fee because our cake will require extra labor hours. But all in all they were great and the cake was amazing!

    Meredith-You are going to love them! I hope you get to work will Alli. She was terrific! And you have to try the Southern Aristocrat cake: Sweet Potato cakes with caramel and white chocolate mousse, amazing!

    Their sweet potato cake is amazing! I've been dreaming about that cake for well over a year. However, their prices are NOT amazing. I went with my local baker and begged her to try a sweet potato recipe. She usually does pound cake but made an exception for me since she loved my grandfather sooo much!

    The only reason we were able to swing the price is because we are having a small wedding, only about 30 guests (we both have small families-about 10 each and we invited our 10 closest friends). So we got a cake for 65 (we really wanted a 3 tier and that is the smallest 3 tier they make). If we were having a bigger wedding we wouldn't have been able to use them. At the end of the day it was about 150 bucks different between the 2 places we visited for the different flavors, 65 servings and our design. But the cake tasted so much better at Sweet Memories that it was worth it. We wanted our guests to walk out of our wedding and say it was amazing instead of just okay. But again we wouldn't have been able to if we had a larger wedding.
