Let Sweet Surrender design your perfect wedding cake!

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.

Sweet Surrender has been creating cakes for over 25 years. Our wedding cakes have earned us recognition from Louisville Bride, Kentucky Bride, Style Me Pretty, Wedding Row Kentucky, Tops in Lexington Magazine, The Knot, The Daily Meal, and even Martha Stewart Weddings!  

All of our cakes and icings are made on-site and from scratch. We specialize in buttercream iced wedding cakes that taste just as good as they look. We do not charge for different flavors in each tier. On your wedding day, one of our talented wedding cake decorators will go on your delivery, so that if the cake has any issues during transit, we can repair the cake on-site. When your one year anniversary arrives, we will make you a free one year anniversary cake, that we bake fresh!

Our wedding cake consultation will guide you in selecting the perfect cake that suits your personal style and budget. Please call to schedule a free cake consultation; tasting is included. We look forward to meeting you!

Wedding Cake Consultations

Wedding Cake Consultations are scheduled by appointment only.  There is no charge for this consultation.

At your appointment, you will first watch a slideshow of some of the wedding cakes Sweet Surrender has created. Personal photos are also welcome at the appointment, if you already have a cake design in mind. Together we will work to design the exact look of your dream wedding cake. We'll even make a sketch, to help you envision your wedding cake. Once the design has been determined, you will then get to taste an assortment of available flavors.

The length of an average appointment is 45 minutes. Call the café at (502) 899-2008 to check the availability of your wedding day and to schedule a free consultation. We do not schedule appointments via email in an attempt to avoid double bookings. Keep in mind that for busy wedding seasons such as May, June, September, and October, it is recommended that you order your cake at least three months in advance. Ordering six months is more likely to guarantee that your date is available.
