Love this bakery. Love their cakes!!

I have ordered twice from sweet somethings.their cakes are delicious and they are friendly every time I place a order
22:58 25 Mar 21
This was my first time ordering anything from here. I ordered a 2 tier, LOL inspired birthday cake, chocolate and vanilla. Did not disappoint on any levels. Definitely keep that same energy and you have a lifetime customer. Everyone said it was the best cake they have ever had. Usually frosting are sometimes too sweet, but this was perfect. Absolutely no complaints. Please try to get adequate boxes for cakes with 2 tiers and up, hated keeping it in the fridge uncovered. Will be back for cakes in may, June & July. Thank you!!!!
22:29 14 Mar 21
When every person at your party says it’s the best cake they’ve ever had, you know it’s amazing! I will always order from this bakery. The cupcakes are little pieces of art. The butter cream cake with raspberry filling is just the right blend of everything! Beautiful, elegant and delicious!!!!
22:21 12 Mar 21
I recommend getting red velvet tart or pistachio tart. I always end up buying $20-30 worth of dessert here every weekend. It helps me get through my day during the week 🙂
11:56 25 Feb 21
huge variety of cake.

I purchased cupcakes for my sons birthday and he was thrilled. It made his day!

Don't think about it...just go...you won't regret it, its awesomw.
23:28 16 Feb 21
Great service and cakes
18:05 16 Feb 21
Incredible!!!!!! Truly, one of the last traditional bakeries in America. Every, cake, pie, tort, and cupcake...are perfect. The flavors are amazing, the staff is super friendly and the owner took and filled my order. The shop is clean and the staff are very aware of the new Covid constraints. And...the 13th cupcake is free!

Wow, one of my new favorites treats to myself. Their chocolate molten cake is to die for. Its not sickening sweet and is totally addictive. A must try!

Rude. Extremely rude. They do not know how to talk to customers on the phone or their Facebook page messenger as well. Applied for a job, got no response for 3 days. When I then asked if they were still hiring the response I got was we are but you have no experience. For customers realtions really I have 15+ years ?!?! Yet there were two postions opened, I was never asked what I was applying for only that I am not experienced enough to work for them. I have 15 years with customer relations and have ran my own crew of 40. So the next time someone asks if you are hiring maybe ask what position they are looking for and see if that spot is still open before you rudely tell someone they have no experience to work in your store. Maybe work on your managerial skills and the way you talk to people because they suck.
20:24 10 Sep 20
Just stopped in for the first time to grab a couple of cupcakes, and was not disappointed. The cake itself was moist and delicious, with just the right amount of icing. The staff is also very friendly. Will definitely come again.
20:53 30 Jul 20
This was my first time order from this cake shop.My coworkers loved the cake! It was a lemon coconut cake. Very moist and very delicious. I will definitely order from them again.. Real soon. 😁
22:15 27 Jul 20
First experience here after it being highly recommended . Ordered a cake for our daughters 3rd birthday . The cake itself was larger than expected but looked great . Only thing was the happy birthday writing wasn't added . I picked up 6 cupcakes while i was there as well . I ate one of the cupcakes myself , they were very soft and well flavored . I didn't eat the cake but the other half and kids said it was good. I would recommend this place .
21:06 21 Jul 20
Cake tasted great and was delicious, but did not match the description on the website's menu. Ordered a chocolate raspberry cake and there was no raspberry jam, instead there was a raspberry cream. The actual cake didn't taste like it was soaked in raspberry syrup either. Maybe I should have confirmed when I ordered but the menu descriptions should be updated at the least.
13:12 18 Jun 20
Best dessert place in Wilmington! 💝💝💝 I always get an assortment of the mini desserts for family functions, and everyone goes crazy for them. My mother in law was a professional cake maker, and she thinks they're all amazing but especially the key lime! I've also custom ordered large cakes, I 💟 the white chocolate raspberry mousse cake!🎂 🍰🧁
21:47 06 Jun 20
I normally get banana cream pie for my partner somewhere else and due to the pandemic it was closed this year. I was so afraid his birthday would not be special this year due to it. I found this bakery shop and bought Banana Cream Pie from them hoping it would be an okay substitute. It was not just okay, it was amazing. Today we took it out of the box and it was gorgeous. We almost didnt want to eat it was so pretty. It taste amazing too! Thank you for punching COVID-19 in the face and making an amazing birthday for my man!
12:37 03 May 20
I have purchased multiple desserts from here and have never been disappointed. Everything is amazing. I highly recommend them for all your baking needs
10:49 07 Apr 20
Delicious cake! The woman who decorated our cake (I think her name was Joanna) did an amazing job. Like, she should be on one of those shows on the food network. She's really that good!They're a little more pricey than other options. But in this case, you get what you pay for!
12:28 12 Mar 20
Had a 30th birthday party at Bardea and one of the girls bought a chocolate cake to share with everyone at the table. It was so delicious! The chocolate cake layers were dense and perfectly moist and the icing was great too. The words piped ontop were nicely written.
22:43 25 Feb 20
Just amazing cakes. Love every one of their creations. For someone with a sweet tooth I would definitely suggest to try their chocolate mousse. Even the staff is super sweet. Love this place. ♥️
16:21 24 Feb 20
This is probably the best bakery in Wilmington. I've tried an embarrassing number of pastries here, but I can't recommend any particular one because they all blend together into a single memory of blissful chocolatey sugary joy. Note that this is more a take-out place than a sit-in place.
17:58 22 Jan 20
When in there was going to order a cake for a friends birthday and it was about five people right there behind the counter and someone on the phone and no one acknowledged me, ok fine maybe the guy on the phone was supposed to take my order. Stood there for a few more minutes still no one said hello or can I help you. I will take my money elsewhere. Pretty racist and tacky if you ask me.
23:12 12 Jan 20
This was the first time I have purchased a cake from Sweet Somethings! and I was a little nervous.... it’s was my mom’s 60th birthday and wanted it to be elegant and special!!!! It was a little more pricey than the usual go to... but totally worth it!! They were amazing!!! I ordered the marble cake with vanilla icing and the filling was white chocolate mousse and chocolate mousse layered!!! It was the best cake I have ever had!!!!! And the the 25 people invited to the party couldn’t get enough of it- so moist and so delicious! Great job sweet somethings!!!!! Thank you so much 😊 would love to post to a photoNot sure how to share the photo- please let me know
21:04 08 Jan 20
For a special event, I got a cake. The cake was excellent, it was discussed by all the guests. It was a cake of chocolate and was ready to pick it up when I went. Thank You for that luscious item. I'll visit for sure.

I live in maryland but I’m from Wilmington, de. I needed to get cake for my granddaughter. I didn’t want a ordinary cake with yellow or red flowers on it. I went online and and found the website and called, I only had about 45 minutes left to purchase. When I arrived, I saw the cake that really looked very good. So I made my purchase and it was the best cake I ever had. My granddaughter was so surprised that she was telling everyone to come see her cake. It was a big hit. Now I’m going to order my birthday cake. Thank you for baking such a delicious cake. This was my first purchase but not my last. My family still lives there so I’ll be bringing the cake.
18:01 25 Nov 19
So l just got a cake for my husband's 50th birthday party a week ago. The cake was excellent, all the guests were talking about the cake. I took a piece to my coworker's who are still talking about how good the cake was. I did a vanilla with lemon filling and the top tier was chocolate and mousse filling. It was ready when we went to pick it up. I wish l can post the picture here.Thank you again.

Their cupcakes are divine!! They have fun, seasonal flavors, they always look gorgeous, and the cake is absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend.

Good palce a little difficult to identify as the color are dark green, employees are not friendly and they should have more variety of bake goods to go, maybe a couple of tables or chairs need it and the packaging is a little off , platic containers whit no liner. But they where flavor was good a above average bakery.
20:33 04 Sep 19
I have been coming to this bakery for years and it's always AMAZING. Such a creative and uh unique product offering. I loved their baked goods so much that I carried them in my retail store until I closed. The owner, Lee is always pleasant and great to deal with professionally. Now I drive 30 minutes just to go to this shop. Love it!

One star is too kind in my opinion for the place that forgets to make your children’s birthday cake. I ordered a cake for my twins’ 4th birthday. The girl taking my order checked with the decorator to make sure that she would have enough time to prepare my cake which she said she did. Imagine my horrified surprise when I show up on the day of my children’s birthday to pick up the cake they were so excited about only to realize that the decorator forgot to make it because she “thought it was for tomorrow.” I’m not sure how you make a mistake like that when you were there when the order was placed and the order sheet clearly said Tuesday, July 16th on it. What made it even worst is that instead of immediately apologizing for her complete failure she tells the girl at the counter to let me know that she will reach out the following day. Today I get a voicemail from this decorator saying that I can call her back if I want to talk to her about what happened yesterday. Once again no apology. How do you not take responsibility for ruining someone’s special day and failing to do your job? No accountability whatsoever. What a disappointment. And no, a free white, vanilla cake did not make up for failing to do your job!

Delicious. Best cupcake I’ve ever had!
16:00 13 May 19
Rude staff! They ignore people and are never helpful. It's like you are bothering them by coming in to purchase something.
01:17 13 May 19
This place did absolutely amazing on the cupcakes and cake that I ordered for my daughter’s first birthday party! The picture I showed them was exactly what they did for me. I want to give a special shout out to Victoria who decorated the cake! She is so sweet! Even walked the cake to the car for me. I will definitely be returning for my other two kids birthday parties this year! They weren’t pricey at all either!
22:51 02 May 19
Amazing cake for my wife's birthday, commissioned by her brother. Perfect end to a great dinner at Krazy Kats. When they brought the cake out we were stunned! They did a terrific poker themed cake that we spent several minutes taking pictures of before they took it away to cut it. When it seemed to be taking awhile to get it back, we joked that they probably put it up on ebay and got a hefty sum for it. When we did get it back, the cake was delicious! Presentation and substance sometimes don't match up but this was one perfect cake in every way!

Not many nice places in Wilmington, DE ...but this is one of them. Why bother with the disgusting, fake bake goods at Shop rite, when you can have delicious baked goods made with “real” ingredients?Love & love this place!

I bought 3 cupcakes today (Tuesday). I have only tried the strawberry shortcake cupcake but it was dry and kind of stale. Probably left over from last week. So disappointed.
01:09 07 Jan 19
Last minute, in need of a cake for our Daughters 13th Birthday & Sweet Something fulfilled our need! That Strawberry Pound Cake with White Chocolate Mousse filling was A Hit! We will definitely be returning.Thank You

My wife and I used Sweet Somethings for our wedding cake in October 2018. Overall, we had a positive experience. Our guests loved the marble cake as well as the seasonal cake flavor (pumpkin walnut)! They did a great job following our requests for the cake decoration as well. At times, we found Sweet Something was a little difficult to get ahold of. Additionally, there was some initial confusion about whether or not they were able to do a gluten-free wedding cake. The lava cake option, which is their one gluten-free option, is very tasty but not what we were looking for. Overall, we recommend Sweet Somethings!

I stop by here often and purchase one serving size cheesecakes, sometimes two. I enjoy every bite of my yummy cheesecakes. 🙂
03:44 12 Oct 18
I would not give a star if possible. We were waiting in line, then a white lady came in and passed us, and we were next in line. The owner chatted with her, took her order and completely ignored the fact that we were next in line. The cake we ordered was not as we expected. Bad texture and taste. Total waste of money.
18:04 04 Sep 18
Great customer service and amazing cakes. This is our second time ordering from Sweet something’s. Definitely our permanent bakery!Thanks for making all of our events special with your delicious pastries!
01:18 22 Aug 18
I normally don't give "good" reviews that much, but today before putting head to pillow I have to give a shout out to "Sweet Somethings Desserts!!" They literally saved my baby shower for my daughter. They customized one of their cakes (Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse, cupcakes (Yellow w/white frosting), and sugar cookies so the color theme could come to fruition. On top of that, their cakes (also Chocolate Silk Torte, cupcakes, and sugar cookies were SO DE-LISH, EVERYONE wanted to know where I bought it from. Thank you Sweet Somethings Desserts for magnificent service and products!! You are definitely #1 in my book!! See you soon!!
22:34 14 Jul 18
They did a baby super hero cake for my daughter's baby shower. It was a big hit!!! Thank you!!!!
17:29 02 Jul 18
The best!!! I lovvvve the food it's on point
00:35 10 Jun 18
Way to sweet, cream was terrible and cake texture was as if I’d been baked a week ago. Disappointed!
20:09 31 May 18
Everytime I go here for a random cupcake or treat it's good...similar to other bakeries in the area..but when I call and ask for something semi specific like a cake from thier site I get the run around. It's a Monday, it's too late notice (for a plain Jane cake calling on a Tueaday for a Friday/Saturday pickup). I've tried twice to order from them and both times I've been given excuses. I do not reccomend this bakery.
16:09 16 May 18
Owner is a nice guy. But the cake doesn’t taste good and give me stomach pain.
23:40 12 May 18
We purchased a Star Wars “inspired” cake for my son’s birthday. The cake was not only beautiful but very delicious. I’m not big on sweets but I tried the cake and found it so good I went in for seconds...... I’ve noticed that a lot of cake makers sacrifice taste for that social media perfect looking cake, we got both!!! Very pleased
23:02 26 Apr 18
Bought a cake for my Son's birthday. It was so good.
16:41 10 Apr 18
I have had so many of their cakes over the past few years as this is the ONLY place my firm gets cakes from...because they are soooooo tasty!! I have had the carrot, german chocolate, chocolate silk, chocolate caramel ganache, lemon with raspberry sauce, chocolate oreo, and a chocolate peanut butter cake. I couldn't pick a favorite if I tried!!!! Fabulous...always!
17:57 17 Jan 18
18:43 05 Jan 18
Thank you Sweet Somethings!!! We had the absolute BEST Wedding Cake in the World!!! Our guests all raved about how fresh, scrumptious and beautiful it was. Thank you so much... You will forever have our business. xx
14:41 12 Dec 17
Phenomenal desserts, with something available for everyone's taste preferences. Amazing flavors and decorating details are spot on! Definitely a new favorite for our family.
14:39 12 Dec 17
Had the opportunity to meet the owner and sample some dessert from here.The owner was downright jovial, and the cake was amazing!There is an obvious passion on the part of the owner to make something amazing with each treat, an endeavor which he constantly achieves.
04:21 26 Nov 17
If it was possible I would give less than a star. I started purchasing cakes from this bakery for my sons birthday when they first opened. I got my last cake from them today. The experience was wonderful up until last year. I contacted them a month before my sons birthday and when I called them the week before to check on my pick up time and they had no record of my order. Luckily they scraped something together quickly and I chalked it up to a bad day at the bakery. This year I called to order and sent a picture. The owner called me back and said he couldn’t do what I wanted in fondant but I explained that I didn’t want fondant and that I was okay with whatever they could do with Just the regular frosting. I told him that was what they had done for me the years before. Let’s just say when I went to pick up the cake there was no decoration, and it looked like they had taken all of 5 minutes to put the icing on. I also loved how the owner couldn’t even manage to greet me when I walked in but when some other lady he must have known walked through the door he chatted up a storm. Guess he didn’t care much about a loyal customer because now he just lost one. Never going back again!
20:26 30 Sep 17
My only complaint about this wonderful place is their hours. I can never get there before they close.
15:11 27 Jun 17
I was worried when I read few reviews around racism, but my experience with Mr Lee cleared them right away. He's a good guy. I would definitely recommend this place for your sweet craving 🙂
15:12 05 Jun 17
Even though the cake was good, their service was really really poor and rude. And totally agree with the racists comment and its so sad.

I Have previously purchased several cakes from this bakery. They all have been good.I tried to call all day, left 2 voicemails never heard back. I finally got thru today and was told they could not make a basic cake in 2 days. Even after expressing my discontent , I was told I could pick something out of the case if. There might be something available that I would like.Horrible service !!!!Don't think I will go back.
20:42 27 Sep 16
Stood at the counter behind one family. Then another Caucasian woman walked in. When our turn came up the moron at the counter asked the white lady if we were next. Did she need confirmation to serve us. The woman in line behind us actually got served before we did. Racists jerks operate this establishment. I've had better cupcakes from Philadelphia and surrounding. Try Cupcakeology. You'll be welcome there.
16:13 03 Sep 16
Girl at the counter didn't seem interested in my business. Stood there yapping with her friend and ignoring the customers while we queued up. I left, don't have time for that kind of rudeness

I just went here for the first time and I love it. A man who seemed like the owner greeted me and told me what they had based on what I like. I didn't feel pressured to get anything and what I got tasted amazing. I will definitely come here whenever I have a sweet tooth.

I walked into this bakery yesterday afternoon. This was my first visit. The gentleman who appears to be the Manger or owner, greeted me as I walked in. An adorable little girl held the door for me when I walked in and left after my purchase. I was celebrating my boyfriend birthday. I purchased 4 cupcakes; strawberry shortcake, lemon, oreo cream and vanilla. We tried the strawberry shortcake together. Omg, it was amazing!!! It taste exactly like a strawberry shortcake, it's very moist, full of good flavor... absolutely a perfectly made cupcake. Delicious cupcakes and good customer service. We agreed we will be back to try more.
19:20 01 May 15
I purchased a lemon coconut cake for a small birthday party it was the star of the event. I'm a believer of the theory that you pay for what you get and this bakery does not disappoint. All of my future needs will definitely be served by this establishment.
18:04 26 Jan 15
The most pefectly, wonderful, delicious cake I've had in years. Above and beyond service with a smile. There's no other bakery for us. I can't sing their praises enough.
21:43 30 Jul 14
I have to say that this place makes the best chocolate cake. EVER. they are always nice in there and passionate about what they are doing. But don't take my word for it. Grab a cupcake and see for yourself.
18:43 18 Jul 14
I placed a small order for key lime cupcakes this past week for a lunch celebrating my friend’s Master’s degree. Everybody, myself included, raved about how delicious they were. I can honestly say that it was the best cupcake that I’ve ever had. I had called around to a number of other bakeries in the area and none of them were willing to do that specific flavor unless it was a particular day, none of which would have worked for the scheduled lunch. Additionally, out of all the bakeries that I had called, the gentleman that I spoke with was by far the most friendly and helpful. When I came in to pick the cupcakes up, not only did Sweet Somethings smell like heaven, but the store was really clean, and the gentleman that cashed me out, who I assume was the same I’d spoken with a few days earlier, was just as friendly. I just wanted to thank you for wonderful customer service and stellar cupcakes! This will be my go-to from now on!
15:05 25 Jun 14
I am in love with this place. After 4 years in Wilmington, we've looked high and low for a good bakery and finally found it! This place is not only much more affordable compared to other bakeries in the area, but the cakes and cupcakes are amazing. For my son's 1st bday, I asked for a "little prince" themed crown cake and they did an amazing job - a work of art, really. The cake was so pretty I didn't even care if it tasted good. But let me tell you, it tasted BETTER than it looked. Got the marble buttercream cake that has layers of what tastes like fudge, chocolate and vanilla mousse. It was amazing and my guests couldn't stop commenting on how good it was. I was thrilled and we will definitely be going back to this place. Best-kept secret!
15:19 22 Apr 14
I found this place while searching on Google to pick up something small for my landlord's birthday. This place is smaller shop with open baking/work-space with open industrial look. I personally like that industrial look. When I went there they did not have more options out but they had enough to start with and more in the back as I was told. Gentleman who helped me was very helpful and nice. He explained me all different flavors and options patiently.I really like this place and will be open to go back. I even had a discussion with guy and told them to try "CupCake War" challenge on Food Netwrok..lolGood place to try!
18:59 31 Mar 14
I recently attended a good friend's daughters' 1 year birthday party and they had ordered cupcakes from Sweet Somethings...Now, I consider myself a bit of a cupcake expert but these were beyond the pale! Heavenly. I highly recommend!
19:05 26 Mar 14
I stopped by Sweet Somethings after a friend told me about a cake she bought for her son's birthday party, and how amazing it was. There was a small office party we were having at work recently, so I decided to pick up some nice treats for everyone. I ended up with a variety of delicious cupcakes along with my now favorite dessert, the hawaiian sea salted caramel bombe. Everyone in the office loved everything! - including myself. I highly recommend sweet somethings for any type of celebration. I will definitely be back.

No better Desserts PERIOD!I can't say enough about the quality and service.Made from scratch every bit....Every minute of every day....Love them Pastry Chefs too!
