Best of 2015: The SweetSide & Mike's Amazing Cakes

The SweetSide

Best Wedding Cake & Best Groom's Cake

Wedding Cake

The SweetSide

Signature appeal: Contemporary, romantic cake styles with soft tones, floral touches and clean lines

Words of wisdom: “When it comes to ordering a cake, keep in mind that there are endless opportunities for inspiration,” says owner Kara Burfeind. “Use tools like Pinterest to capture your favorite piece of art, a pillow that you love, your invitation and monogram, etc. Bring them to your cake designer consultation and see what they can come up with!”


Groom’s Cake

Mike’s Amazing Cakes

Signature appeal: Creating distinctive and imaginative groom’s cakes and wedding cakes (think of dragons, VW buses, under-the-sea themes, and more) with high-quality ingredients and capturing the unique spirit of each couple

Words of wisdom: “Don’t worry about what Grandma thinks,” says owner Mike McCarey. “Put at least one element into that cake that is as specific and uniquely you as possible. Whether it’s a horde of zombies attacking the bride and groom on top of the cake or it’s using rhubarb as a filling, do something fun and you.”
