Weddings:

Sweet Fix serves couples all across Virginia including Richmond, Charlottesville, Northern Virginia, DC, Virginia Beach, Hampton Roads and other surrounding cities. We are proud to have been voted "Best Wedding Cakes in Richmond" by the Readers of Richmond Magazine, Richmond Bride, Borrowed & Blue and Virginia Living Magazine. 

We believe that quality, freshness and taste is just as important as the appearance of your cake. We make all of our desserts from scratch, using only the highest quality, ALL-natural ingredients. Please take a moment to read our baking philosophy below.

While Sweet Fix always shares in the vision of our clients, we will not copy an existing cake decorator or designer. Our love for - and experience in - the visual arts makes the need for unique, custom designs of ultimate importance. We work closely with our clients to understand their event style and request that they share with us any photos of other designs that inspire them, as well as selected color and fabric swatches, flowers, table decor, favors, and other visual elements. Through these elements, we develop designs that both complement our client’s event and ensure that their desserts and displays are always “one-of-a-kind”.      Inspiration is key!

In addition to our custom cakes, we devote hours to the theme development, design, creation, print and collection of all visual display elements for our dessert tables and styling including but not limited to; labels, cards, favors, edibles, backdrops, floral arrangements, table decor, serving ware,  packaging, etc.

Baking Philosophy:

*Sweet Fix believes that quality, freshness and taste is just as important as the appearance of your cake. 

*We use the highest quality of ALL-natural (and organic as much as possible) ingredients, baked from scratch and completely hand-designed.

*All of our cake recipes (including our gluten-free flour) have been developed by Sweet Fix and are made fresh-to-order. 

*All of our cakes and desserts are made with real ingredients. (Real butter, organic Madagascar bourbon vanilla, lemon zest, fresh squeezed juices, fresh seasonal fruits, organic nuts, Dutch-process cocoa, top shelf liqueurs and more). We do NOT believe in artificial ingredients or using only extracts to flavor cakes. We DO NOT use shortening, imitation extracts or pre-made processed ingredients typically found in buttercream. 

*We make “dessert-style” wedding and special occasion cakes with European influenced buttercream. Sweet Fix considers our cakes dessert-style because of the following:

    1. All of our cakes, including 3D & sheet style cakes, are multi-layered cakes with top quality ingredients. Each of our cake tiers are made up of 4 torted layers of cake with 3 layers of buttercream filling and additional fillings upon request. 

    2. Our serving sizes are much larger than typical wedding cake serving sizes due to pan size and torting, which means a taller cake with larger portions. (5” tier height instead of 3” standard height).

    3. No matter how large or complex the cake, we completely avoid the use of low-quality, preservative- filled and pre-made ingredients. All of our desserts, including multiple tiered wedding cakes, are made from scratch, FRESH-TO-ORDER. 

    4. Our wedding and special occasion cakes look the same on the inside as our non-customized dessert cakes, the only difference is the custom design on the outside. Be sure to look through our galleries to get an idea of what style of cake you would like.
