#1 Sweet Surrender - Louisville, KY

We're Interviewing: Jessica, Owner

Outside of Sweet Surrender

What Areas Do You Service?

We create wedding cake mainly for the Louisville area, but we will deliver to neighboring counties as well.

What Are Your Most Favorite Cake & Icing Flavors?

It’s so hard to choose just one favorite cake flavor- which is why we allow couples to have a different flavor in each tier of their wedding cake at no additional charge. My favorite flavor is our Italian Cream Cake with a Raspberry Marmalade filling and Vanilla Buttercream. But our Belgian Chocolate Cake with a Kahlua Cream Cheese Icing is a close second!

What is the Most Popular Flavor?

Our most popular wedding cake flavor is our Caramel Pound Cake - layers of Vanilla Pound Cake, filled with Caramel and Vanilla Buttercream. Our Strawberry Pound cake and Double Chocolate Cake are close contenders though!

Do You Have a Favorite Cake You’ve Done in the Past?

I’ve been doing this a while, so I have a lot of favorite cakes we’ve made in the past! The cake we’re best known for is the cake I affectionately refer to as “Martha.” It was featured on as one of The Best 25 Wedding Cakes!

Jessica, can you show us some photos?

Do you Deliver?

We mainly deliver to the Louisville area, but for an additional fee we will deliver as far as 45 miles from our café. Some couples also opt to pick up their wedding cakes.

Do You Offer Anything Besides Wedding Cakes?

In addition to wedding cakes, we also create dessert bars! Some of the most popular desserts for our dessert bars include French Macarons, cookies, truffles, and individual pies. What’s Next? We offer free wedding cake consultations! From elegant simplicity to whimsical wonders, we make every effort to ensure that your unique style and tastes are reflected, so that you and your guests enjoy a delicious and beautiful cake on your special day. We've earned a reputation for beautiful wedding cakes that taste as wonderful as they look. All of our cakes and icings are made on-site and from scratch. We specialize in buttercream iced wedding cakes. While we are unable to do an in-person consultation at this time, due to COVID-19 , we can still have a consultation via Zoom. Once you send us your inspiration photos, we will create a slideshow for your appointment, customized to the style cake that you are looking for.

What areas do you service?

Bit of Whimsy Cakes serves mostly central Kentucky, however we do offer delivery all over the state.

What Are Your Most Favorite Cake & Icing Flavors?

We have tons of flavor options because I love variety. Some of my favorite combinations are bananas foster cake with cinnamon caramel icing, and lemon blueberry cake with lemon mousse filling and signature buttercream.

What is the Most Popular Flavor?

Our most popular flavors are bourbon pecan cake with maple buttercream, and signature vanilla cake with strawberries & cream filling and traditional buttercream.

Do You Have a Favorite Cake You’ve Done in the Past?

I love it when brides are a little extra and want more than a traditional white cake. One of my favorites was a blue suede design with edible lace, white sugar flowers and fairy lights. It looked absolutely magical at dusk for the outdoor reception.

#3 GT Treats LLC - Louisville, KY

We're Interviewing: Gloria, Owner

White Wedding Cake 4 Tiers

About the Business!

I am a single small batch baker working from my pet and smoke free home. I am a fully insured, licensed LLC and I am certified with the Health Department in their Food Safety Course. All of my cakes, fillings, frostings and pastries are made fresh from scratch. I don’t use any box mixes, jello or puddings for flavor. My citrus cakes are made with all fresh zest and juice and the Strawberry and Strawberry Champagne Cakes are made with only fresh strawberries. My fruit fillings are made with the fresh fruit. I use Mexican Vanilla in my buttercream, which is all butter, unless the cake will be outside.

What is your favorite flavor?

When asked what is my favorite flavor, I tell them that is a hard choice because I like them all, some more than others. My go to flavors are the White, Lemon and Yellow cake. My Chocolate is delicious but I am not a chocolate loving person. I also really like the Strawberry Champagne cake. The Strawberry Frosting and the Strawberry Champagne Frosting start with the Italian Meringue Buttercream (IMBC) as a base because it is not a sweet icing but has a very fluffy texture and soft feel on your tongue.

Is there a popular flavor among clients?

The Derby Delight Cake is always the first to go at wedding shows. It is my Signature Cake inspired by the Derby Pie and Mint Julep. I made a brown sugar cake then add the chocolate chips, pecans and Woodford Reserve to the cake topping it with Bourbon Buttercream.

Do you have a favorite cake you've done in the past?

I love these fun cakes I've done!

Do you offer anything besides cakes?

I offer wedding cakes, Special Occasion cakes, or a “just because I want some good cake” cakes, cupcakes, pies, and other pastries. I do not do donuts and very rarely cake pops and decorated cookies. I make more traditional flavor cookies, and tea type cookies, macarons, pecans crescents, madeleines, etc.

Gloria, can you show us some more photos?

What's next?

At wedding shows I always take a list of names and emails if they are interested in a weekend long tasting that I have scheduled beforehand. I send a blanket email inviting each one and if they can’t make it I offer to schedule one at a later date. When they make their appointment, I ask them to bring any cake designs they have in mind and we put together a couple of different ones for their cake or we start from scratch. One of my fall brides wanted her cake to replicate her wedding gown, so I pulled certain aspects of the dress starting from the top and working my way to the bottom of the dress and cake.

#4 Sweet Matriarch - Georgetown, OH

We're Interviewing: Tia, Founder, Caker, Shaker, & Baker!

Outside of Bakery

What areas do you service?

We primarily serve the entire Bluegrass region of Kentucky. However, we’ve done wedding all over the state, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee and W. Virginia.

What is your favorite flavor?

My favorites are just about any depending on my mood honesty. If I’m feeling nostalgic I’ll dive into the southern classics like red velvet and hummingbird. Or if it’s summer give me orange zest or strawberry. As far as icing goes, typically it’s cream cheese or old fashion caramel.

Is there a favorite flavor among clients?

Our most popular flavor hands down is a rich bourbon chocolate cake layered and filled with salted caramel, caramel buttercream and a pecan praline crumble. Sometimes our brides will add a bourbon ganache.

Is there a favorite cake you've done in the past?

As far as a favorite wedding cake I’m not sure. There have been plenty of times where I’ve said, “ I love this cake, it’s my favorite!” only for that to be said the next weekend. I think it’s part of why I love what I do so much.

Tia, can you show us some photos?

Do you deliver?

We do deliver. Every cake we make is delivered and set up by us no matter the serving size.

Do you offer anything besides cakes?

We offer a large assortment of desserts here at the shop. We consider ourselves to be a dessert bakery so we offer cakes, cookies, pies, tarts, brownies, bourbon balls and more. I’d say over the past year we’re known the most for our Cattywampus Milkshakes. This year we’ll also introduce our small batch, craft ice cream by the pint.

What is my relationship to the featured wedding vendors? I am always transparent with my audience. These vendors were hand selected by me to feature in this post. They were each charged a small fee to cover my time in creating their feature as this provides a means for me to earn an income. I reached out to them and offered the opportunity, they did not seek me out looking to advertise. I only feature venues and vendors I truly think are great!
