2011 Wedding Cake & Tasting Information

For all of you out there who are planning a wedding in 2011, Sweet Street wants to make choosing the cake not only stress free, but FUN as well!

Wedding cakes are the centerpiece of every reception and choosing one can become a little overwhelming. A wedding cake tasting is a relaxing way to to get to know me and my products. It also gives us a chance to sit down and go over what will make your perfect wedding cake. Feel free to bring magazine and/or internet pictures of cakes you like and, if possible, any color swatch you would like incorporated into your cake.

The tasting will include two mini Charleston Style Pound cakes filled with up to two fillings per cake and covered in buttercream. Homemade marshmallow fondant is available upon request. This provides plenty of cake, so please invite your fiance` and family members! A tasting can be done in my home, or I can come to you- whichever is easiest for the bride!


Charleston Style Pound

This recipe was my great-grandmother's and has been in my family for five generations. It's a dense, but super moist sour cream pound cake that has accents of lemon zest and vanilla bean. Tart Lemon Zest, Toasty Almond, Decadent Chocolate, Marble, Rich Mocha and Southern Red Velvet are the available variations. The original recipe is what I use most for wedding cakes.

Fresh Preserve Fillings
Raspberry * Strawberry * Pineapple * Blueberry * Lemon Curd
Buttercream Fillings
Chocolate Hazelnut * Coffee or Mocha * Caramel
Ganache Fillings
White Chocolate * Milk Chocolate * Dark Chocolate
Cream Cheese Fillings
Vanilla Bean * Chocolate * Lemon * Zesty Orange * Cookies&Cream * Toasted Coconut * Pineapple * Strawberry * Blueberry
All fillings are homemade from the freshest ingredients found in our area. I take pride in the quality of my products and that's why I choose fresh fruit, pure extracts, Ghirardelli chocolates and imported coffees to flavor fillings.

Are you interested in a Cupcake Tower for your reception? A cupcake tasting is just what you need! You can choose up to 6 cupcake flavors. Click HERE to visit Sweet Street's 2011 Cupcake Menu.

The tasting is also a great time for a design consultation! We can discuss which elements will make your perfect cake and it will also give you a chance to better understanding my products and what I offer. We will go over the contract, discuss the price and any other details relevant to your cake. This usually only lasts about 30 minutes.

Complementary tastings and design consultations are available most days and are by appointment only. Appointments can be made by email at sweetstreetsc@aol.com. Please include which flavor of cake and fillings you would like to try, as well as how many people are attending.

Wedding cakes are some of my favorite projects and the tastings are just so much fun! I am looking forward to hearing from all brides very soon!
