My wife and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary this last weekend. We had a cake for our daughter's engagement party from Sweet Somethings and knew it would be good. We had an orange pound cake at our wedding and asked if they could do...the same thing. They said they could and they did a great job. I can't say enough about it.More

The desserts are delicious and well with the price. I have ordered cakes, tarts and cupcakes for dinners and events and have always been extremely happy with the products. My only negative is I would like smaller tarts, but I have solved that problem by...cutting them in half or thirds. Great small business!More

A slice of almond cake the top covered in sliced almonds....And a piece of butter pound cake. Oh my Im in heaven. My choice for baked goods. Hope someday they decide to make all kinds of cookies with icing. Check out my pictures. YumMore

A huge selection of the most wonderful cakes and other desserts! We were given a raspberry and chocolate cake as a surprise gift for our 50th anniversary. It was so good I tried to order it again for another occasion, but the wrong cake was...made. I was disappointed but learned from this experience that one can not be too careful in the choice. We'll be going back forever....More

This bake shop is on Union Street in Wilmington, yards from Eclipse Bistro. It has been in business, so far as I know, only a few years, but in that time has become a place people talk about in very high terms. The pound cake...is excellent. You can buy an entire cake or individual slices. Many other desserts are offered, also. I have not tasted all the offerings, but those I have taseted were uniformly excellent. The price is not what you might expect at a supermarket, which this definitely is not. The buyer has to realize that the ingredients of fine baking are not cheap, and if you want first rate baking, you have to have the proper ingredients and that adds to the cost. Check out the prices of eggs and butter and you will understand, not to mention other ingredients that are needed for many creations without getting exotic. All things considered, this is an excellent place to buy cakes and the like and the price is reasonable, considering the quality of the product and the cost of ingredients if you were to make the same items at home. I recommend this bakery.More

I volunteered to bring dessert to ladies night so I stopped by Sweet Somethings. I arrived at 5:05 and they close at 5. But the owner saw me and invited me in. The selection was extensive. Instead of getting one cake I decided to get...10 individual mini cakes in 10 different flavors. We cut them into 4's and sampled a bunch of them. The coconut cupcake may have been my favorite, but the smooth cheesecakes were a close second. You do need to enjoy very sweet desserts; not an issue for me. Dessert was a big hit! I'll be back for sure!More

I work in PA and my coworkers all love the cakes we've bought from here. They even have me pick up orders for their family special occasions! Cheesecake is amazing as well as carrot cake - oh let's not forget the salted caramel cake. Friendly...staff- always smiling. Cakes are HUGE- well worth the money!More

Having just moved to Delaware, a coworker ( he lives in Delaware as well however we work in Pennsylvania) suggested this place for cakes and muffins for our office. When you look at the prices on the cakes you may be a bit skeptical... but...the cakes are huge... and honestly worth it. I've picked up cakes for coworkers who live in Pennsylvania fir their family holidays/birthdays. Im not a huge sweet eater but the salted chocolate caramel mousse cake is amazing. Next cake that will be visiting work is the coconut!!More

First, if you don't have any willpower, bring a trusted friend or be prepared to spend! From the front window, before you enter, the temptation grabs you. Full cakes, miniature cheesecakes, muffins and more! Mouthwatering sugary sweetness for pure indulgent satisfaction in flavours like s'mores,...dulce de leche, chocolate ganache, key lime and much more! The inventory is fluid, so if you like something, buy it! Some items are a bit more than if you get it at a store vs. the bakery but, it's well worth it! Parking is street parking, but usually available. After numerous experiences, expect quick friendly informative service. This is a great option for something small and memorable fro a one-on-one celebration or a nice treat.More

We purchased single desserts - a peanut butter bombe and something very chocolatey and fudgey topped with a white mousse and raspberries! Ample-sixed and DEElicious! These are desserts that a restaurant would easily charge $9 for. It's a good thing I don't live nearby or...I might visit daily!More
