Vendor Spotlight: SWEET

Who is SWEET?

SWEET is a custom cakery that creates classic, elegant buttercream wedding cakes with an innovative spin on flavors. I use ingredients with integrity, mostly organic and I source locally when I can. ~ Jill Habansky, Owner/Baker/Designer

How long have you been in business?

Over a decade :)

Tell us a little about yourself! What is your personal background and why did you start this business?

As most American Italians, I was raised in the kitchen. Food, tradition, and creativity are in my blood. I started this business because I feel most at home in the kitchen, and I'm a maker! Cake design gives me the opportunity to be creative and work with my hands. And then the final product brings so much joy to people, that's a huge added bonus!

What is your favorite part about what you do?

I love meeting clients!! Cake tastings are a lot of fun, and I often hear its one of the best parts of planning a wedding. That face-to-face contact is so special for me, to have the opportunity to meet this beautiful couple in the process of planning one of the most important days of their life. Setup is really rewarding, too. I love arriving onsite, with other wedding vendors buzzing around doing what they do best. And then setting up the cake for display, taking it that next step with beautiful fresh florals and greenery. I love that feeling of completion.

What makes your business stand out from others?

I have experience in both design and food, I think this makes me particularly good at what I do. And I'm meticulous, this is an important quality in a cake designer and I think it shows in the quality of my work. My cake menu sets me apart from other wedding cakers, too. It's creative and clients looking for something a little different are always really excited about it. And of course, everything is delicious!

What can potential clients expect from you during the booking and planning process?

Potential clients can expect a quick response time and a booking/planning process that's both fun and easy. A cake tasting is a great place to start when planning for your wedding cake. Couples can choose up to four flavors from my menu for tasting. We meet, eat, talk all things cake and more!

Do you take special orders or do you have a set menu to choose from?

I have a set menu but, of course am open to customizing flavors. Sometimes a couple will come to me with a flavor combination that is particularly meaningful to them. I'm happy to work with these requests!

What is the WILDEST design that has been requested?

Lets see... I've filled a few funny requests back when I was working with fondant. Like a client might want a cake that expresses their love of wine, fast cars and travel. I'm glad I don't do those cakes anymore ;)

Do you deliver?

Yes, I absolutely deliver in and around the Bay Area!

One last tidbit from Jill, the baker and designer:

I feel honored each and every time a couple chooses me to be part of one of the most significant days of their life. Its really a special (and fun!) job.

Her cakes are tried and true, and her designs are stunning. Jill at SWEET can take your favorite flavors and inspiration and turn them into a beautiful wedding cake creation!
