Eileen made 19 cakes for our wedding and all of the guests raved at how delicious and beautiful they were. That was two years ago and I've been a loyal customer ever since! How Sweet it is also has the best sandwiches in town !


Our cake samples were amazing!!! I can't wait for our actual wedding cake. Fantastic :)

I am so glad I choose How Sweet It Is Cakes do do our wedding cake. It was absolutely worth every penny. Being able to choose the flavors we wanted and for her to work with our ideas was awesome. I will never go to another baker now.

We had a huge cake for a large wedding, and had some last minute changes and How Sweet It Is Cakes was able to accommodate our needs and did it effortlessly! The Cake was Delicious!


Eileen is the best! posted 8/9/2012

My husband is gluten intolerant so it was a little hard to find a bakery that would do gluten free cake. Eileen saved the day! She not only did a gluten free top, but also did not charge us extra to make it gluten free. Most bakeries that we dealt with did. She uses all natural ingredients which was also a big draw for us. We will be going back to her for years to come for other celebrations!


Perfect Wedding Cake! posted 8/7/2012

My husband and I were living out of state when planning our Duluth wedding. Eileen was able to meet with us while we were back for an extremely short busy weekend. I knew the design I wanted but was completely clueless about flavors, fillings etc. She walked us through everything they offered, helped us narrow it down and took all the notes. Within the week she had sent me a list of what I had liked the best with price sheets. The next time I was in town she made us sample cakes for us to try of our top flavors. They were all delicious and exactly what we wanted. We finally settled on different flavor/filling combinations for each layer (which I didn't know was possible!) and were all set for the big day. The day of the wedding came and I honestly didn't have a single thought about the cake until I entered the room with our guests. It was am amazing feeling to not have a single thought of doubt or anxiety about something so important to a wedding. I completely trusted Eileen to do a deliver it on time, have it look flawless and taste delicious and she exceed on every point. I highly recommend her for anyone needing a special occasion cake. She is great to work for and the pictures of her work show her talent.


Eileen is AWESOME posted 7/23/2012

We ordered cupcakes and a cutting cake for my wedding. They were all AMAZING! This was by far the most complimented thing at my wedding...how good the cupcakes were! We had a bunch of leftovers too that we happily finished off! Our cutting cake was the best cake I have ever had! And we sent in a picture of our invites and Eileen copied the Damask swirl onto our cake PERFECTLY! I thought she would have to simplify the design because it is pretty complex but she did it so beautifully! We also ordered a cake for my brother because it was his birthday. He said it was fantastic! Ask about the edible glitter that she puts on the cakes... So pretty!

Words can not describe how wonderful our wedding cake was from Eileen and her Team at How Sweet It Is Cakes. I cried the moment I laid eyes on my 6 tiered ivory and white with edible aloncon lace and buttons wedding cake. It matched my dress PERFECTLY. I have never seen anything like it. Not only did it look absolutley amazing, but it tasted equally as great! All three flavors we had were wonderful. This cake shop is a must when planning your wedding!

We had an amazing experience with "How Sweet It Is"! Eileen (the owner) was extremely receptive to all of our ideas. My husband and I emailed her many times with new ideas and she always returned our emails promptly. Eileen went above and beyond anything that I was expecting from a baker. The cake was delivered on time, set up beautifully and tasted amazing. The price was great for the outstanding quality of the cake. We were planning long distance so Eileen's ability to respond to our emails was wonderful. I also requested a gluten free cupcake which my niece said was "great"! We would recommend this company to everyone.

More than just cakes, the sandwiches are out of this world! Lots of different homemade breads to choose from and the portions are huge, "Hellfire!" is my favorite but be ready for some heat! Great staff and food keep me coming back for more!

Pretty much amazing. I ordered my wedding cake from How Sweet It Is in 2009. I got amazing feedback from everyone at the wedding. I continue to place orders at her bakery because it is that amazing. Every person I talk to I send to How Sweet It Is, I haven't heard one negative thing from anyone I have sent there. I recently got 3 cakes for my parent's anniversary and birthdays, and drove them all the way to the cities and they amazingly not only survived the trip but looked AMAZING! Eileen did an amazing job replicating their wedding cake from the 1980's! On top of amazing cakes and cookies, her deli is to die for. I dream of her sandwiches! If you haven't stopped by yet, please do! It's time to support local businesses. Her staff are friendly and will help with whatever you need.

Dear Eileen,

I recently traveled the Los Angeles area and visited Sprinkles Cupcakes in Beverly Hills. 

As an avid follower of foodie blogs and the Food Network, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to taste the handcrafted cupcakes from Sprinkles, founded by Candace Nelson, who I've watched for years as a judge on the television series Cupcake Wars.

I purchased a Red Velvet Cupcake from this bakery that has been credited with starting the nationwide cupcake craze. With much anticipation, I took my first bite into this cupcake and immediately thought....

"The Red Velvet Cupcakes at HOW SWEET IT IS are so much better than this!"

I am not kidding, Eileen. I mean, I'd never turn down a cupcake, but given the choice, I'd choose a Red Velvet Cupcake from HOW SWEET IT IS any day of the week!

Kudos to you and your staff for creating such delectable goodies. And please, don't stop! :)

I feel the need to share with you and the staff at How Sweet IT IS my findings regarding the best Bakery EVER!!!

I recently returned from a 5 day vacation in New York City (10/17 to 10/21). During this time I went to two Bakeries SPRINKLES and Mallory’s. Both do not come close to the flavor, texture and beauty of the product all of you produce at How Sweet IT IS!!!

How Sweet IT IS, is the Best Bakery EVER!!!!
