Our cakes, desserts, and edible favors are custom designed to fit your unique vision and created with the most delectable of ingredients to wow your guests and your tastebuds.
We're into creating moments that matter and we know your desserts shouldn't just be stunning. They should be deliciously memorable.
Our award-winning desserts are created from scratch with love and attention to detail. As a husband and wife team, we're inspired by our Spanish roots, our formal baking and culinary degrees, and by our couples. Their love stories continue to remind us that love is always the sweetest part of life.
We know it's a memorable moment you can never get back, which is why we create artistically inspired cake designs that taste the way every good love story feels –– rich, delightful, surprising, and sultry.
That first bite of wedding cake...
We know good cake and good love stories, and most of all, we know how to create cakes that are unforgettable for their beauty and their sumptuous flavor.
Fill out our questionnaire, confirm your date's availability and book your consultation and tasting.
We send our custom tastings home with you so you can relax, enjoy, and choose which decadent flavors and pairings you love. Once you've booked your wedding date with us, we'll prepare your hand-drawn sketch design and proposal.
During our in-person or virtual, paid consultation, we'll dream up your custom cake design and desserts together and prepare your made-from- scratch tasting experience.
Your wedding day is just as important to us as it is to you. Your desserts will be delivered on time and photo-ready. Although our cakes look too pretty to eat, once your guests take a bite, they won't be able to stop.
"Hands on Sweets was the icing on the cake for our wedding. Chef Marie was amazing to work with. Her communication and follow ups were timely and professional. She designed the perfect dessert bar and even accommodated our request for donuts and figurines of our pets on our cake. Everything tasted incredible! 10/10 highly recommended."
"Chef Marie and her husband Carlos from Hands on sweets were such a pleasure to work with!! Thank you both for make our wedding so special. Your suggestions and creativity were very much appreciated. Everyone raved about how elegant the wedding cake looked and how incredibly delicious it was. The assortment of desserts were all mini works of art!! What an encore to such a special evening and one that we’ll always remember."
"Hands on Sweets made our wedding cake and "thank you gift" macaroons for our May 2021 wedding. We were SO pleased with the experience working with Chef Marie and their end product. When communicating with Chef Marie at the beginning of the wedding planning process, she helped us tremendously by putting together a potential "look" for our wedding cake based on "vision" photos we sent to her. Her suggestion is what we selected and it was stunning. We LOVED the uniqueness of their flavors too - we opted to have part of our cake be carrot cake with guava filling, and it was delicious! The other flavor we had was pink champagne cake with cream cheese filling, which was also incredible. We added macaroons as thank you gifts, and to this day, our attendees tell us that they were the best ones they have ever had! Thank you to Chef Marie for helping make our wedding absolutely perfect!!"
"Chef Marie and her husband Carlos are the *SWEETEST* people to work with. Their energy and passion for what they do really shows in their work. You can see how detail oriented their cakes are and how much time and effort goes into them. We had a customized Groot cake for our grooms cake and it turned out better than I imagined."
Designing a cake starts with you. We work closely with our clients and their wedding planners to ensure their cake, dessert tables, and favors enhance their theme and vision. When you work with us, you don't just get a wedding cake –– you get an edible piece of art.
Our desserts taste like little bites of heaven because of the ingredients we use. Each wedding cake is created from scratch in a small batch to ensure a luxury taste time and again. You'll never find any frozen or pre-made cake mixes in our Hands on Sweets kitchen for a reason. Fresh ingredients, real butter, and love go into every recipe.
Our cakes are press-worthy, and not just because they demand a photo op of their own, but because the best wedding venues in the Tampa area recommend us to their clients. Our cakes and our customer service never disappoint! Wedding planners and vendors trust us 100% to ensure a seamless, stunning day.
