Best Sweets in South Carolina

Best Sweets in South Carolina


Congratulations on your engagement! We’re so glad you’re here and hopefully happily planning away and making your special day extra perfect. There are so many things we could chat about for your wedding, from South Carolina wedding venues to South Carolina wedding photographers – not to mention details like invitations and wedding dresses. However, because sometimes it’s best to take a break from all the action and settle in with your love for something sweet (like, perhaps, cake tasting), the subject we’ve settled on is simply that: your dessert table.




South Carolina Wedding Cakes


Although wedding day dessert table options have grown by leaps and bounds (Doughnuts? Ice cream? Anything else you can dream up?), sometimes the traditional cake is all a girl wants for her special day. Sweet Expressions is an independently owned custom bakery that has been serving upstate South Carolina since 1989. With years of baking and decorating experience under its belt, this shop’s 30 cake flavors and variety of decorating styles are sure to provide you and your fiancé with exactly what you want. Meanwhile, Wedding Cakes by Jim Smeal is a Charleston option for creative cakes galore. Having spent more than 30 years in the industry, this bakery offers a number of styles and customizable details designed to meet each couples’ unique ideas and personality. Working almost exclusively with Italian and Swiss buttercream, and using little to no fondant in their cake design, Wedding Cakes by Jim Smeal is all about the freshest ingredients and organic sources. Plus, these cakes are exceptionally pretty.



Dessert Stations to Die For


Just in case you’re looking for a little more variety to satisfy your (and your guests’) sweet tooth, check out the Buttercream Bakehouse. A Greenville shop that specializes in both cakes and extravagant “Sweet Stations,” they like to start couples off with a list of suggested menus – and then you pick and choose as you like. Let’s just say that the cake pops, mini cupcakes and individual tarts all make our cut.
