Friendly staff. Patient with me while I take my time deciding what to order. Knew the prices by memory. Safe oriented. Its my birthday and they made me feel welcome. I always come here to treat myself every year because of how good they are to me.

My absolute “go to” place for cakes, cookies, bars, and gifts. Always a pleasure and fun- everyone is pleasant and helpful!! I've moved out of state and Sweet Surrender will be one of the first places I go back to when I'm back in town!! Oh my goodness it's Fall today- the decorations will be amazing..

My experience with Sweet Surrender was amazing. The girls at the location were friendly, and displayed excellent customer services. The inside of the location was fresh, clean, overall a welcoming environment. From the lady who took our order, all the way to whomever physically prepped our cake, paid wonderful attention to detail, giving my daughter exactly what she asked for. Yes Sweet Surrender is pricey but the fresh moist deliciousness of their cake was well worth every cent for my daughter.

Very clean, organized and pretty friendly staff. I would like to see more of a diverse group of staff though. But sweets we're very good. Good job ladies.

Food is great and tasty. The mask policy cost a one star rating. Employees should be made aware of the law and provide an option. If someone has a medical or religious reason to not wear a mask the business needs to respect that. This applies to ALL businesses. In the end, this experience will not deter me from going there again.

I have been coming to this bakery for a very long time. I live in Visalia and have driven there many times for birthday cakes and gifts. I went last week to order my wedding cake. I called ahead to see about setting up an appt and was told they don't do appointments to just come in. So we did.I wanted my fiancé to experience it but it wasn't a good experience. They just wanted to take the order, gave no help and didn't offer to taste anything. We purchased some cupcakes for my fiancé to try but they made us go outside to taste it (because of covid???)We came back in with some questions but they were too busy to help us. We ended up leaving and didn't order our cake. I have spent thousands in this store over the years, send people there, buy clothes and gifts and sadly something has changed there.The cupcakes were good that we tasted. I'm never disappointed with the quality but the service kept us from ordering.

They have a lot of really cute gift ideas, I was driving back home to Fresno, so I wasn't able to get a cupcake. But I hear that they are very delicious, next time for sure.

They have an amazing sweet shop, but have also added a gift section with clothing, wine glasses, adorable baby items and so much more. Favorite cupcake flavors: Pink Champagne, oreo, Mattahorn, and lemon (lemon something... can't remember exactly).

If you are in Bakersfield a must stop and pick up a cupcake or 2. They are so nice and helpful. Plus their cupcakes are so yummy. I was able to find a whole cake on short notice. Plus they wrap in a beautiful bow.

Came in a month ago asking if you were able to make the unicorn cake on the left. You stated that it was actually your cake, so yes you could make it exactly like that. All I had to do was bring in a picture of it when I placed my order so that the hair color would be what I wanted. I did as you asked. I paid the $80. And the picture on the right is what I received. Hair color was incorrect. Eye color incorrect. And the horn was alternated without my permission or knowledge. No phone call, no notice, nothing. I was told to place the order 3 days before I wanted it picked up. I was extra considerate and placed the order 8 days ahead of time. That should have been more than enough time to make the order exactly as I had paid for it, along with the picture that was provided to ensure that it would not be screwed up. While the cake was still cute, it was not what I had asked or paid for.

The pastries were really good. I got a slice of the red velvet cake the cake itself was moist and the frosting was a little more sweet than I expected. The service was straight to the point and didn't pressure a sale. The prices are displayed openly so you aren't left wondering how your bill for so large.

I have called two times to place an order for a cake and they put me on hold for 25 minutes and no one ever answered. I was trying to avoid a direct contact due to this pandemic that's why I tried to place an order via phone.Very disappointed with their customer service.

Their sweets are perfectly crafted from a place of love. The boutique has a ton of cute knock-knacks, in addition, everything is made locally! The staff are prompt, but polite and patient. They allow you time to explore or ask questions without rushing or being pushy. I've always had a pleasant experience here.I come often to purchase cupcakes or the cheesecake cupcakes, and I have always been pleased. My most recent visit was to purchase a Pink Champagne Barbie Cake for a very special 4yr old. While the cake was spectacular, my only complaint is that I wish I had been informed they don't use the whole Barbie! Her legs are removed!

I completely surrender my sweet tooth to this place. Their cupcakes are amazing! I can't choose a favorite because I love them all equally, it just depends on what I'm in the mood for. Although, I do wish they'd offer their chocolate peppermint all year round.

My friend liked the coconut cupcake. They only have it on a specific day of the week. I went there to get that cupcake on the proper day which was also Valentine's day. I waited in a huge line and when I finally got some service they said they didn't make that one because it is valentines day. It was the correct day of the week but they didn't make the cupcake. They could have put a note on the door or something. After that I will not go back to this store.

If I don't bake myself this is usually my go to bakery; however, this was probably my last purchase since they raised their prices by $16 for the matterhorn. Too expensive for a cake no matter how good it tastes. Rosie's bakery in Rosedale or Wasco will get my business now.

More than I expected! There were cute clothes, home decor, soaps, dishware, and more! They even managed to make a mini matterhorn cake last minute custom lettering on the top of the cake. It was quite busy, but the staff all remained calm, cool, and friendly as can be. Very impressed!

I'm pretty neutral on this bakery. I wanted to see what they offered in gluten free goodies. They had a few things, but not much. What I got was good, but expensive. I probably won't ever go there again, but for those who prefer high end desserts, I'm sure you'd like Sweet Surrender. They've existed for a long time in this city, so they're doing something right.

Came here for the first time today. I needed to order a came for my mother's day on Monday. I heard good reviews about this place , and wanted to see for myself.This place is awesome! More than just a bakery really. It also sells candles, cards, stuffed animals, and more. Its pretty much a one stop shop for anything celebration or get well kinda stuff. I did however, purchase a "turtle" cupcake. It was awesome! :) Sweet Surrender is like a knock-off version of Sprinkles. I'm sure to return here again! Plus, I have a birthday to pick up on Monday.Happy Holidays!

Most of the cakes here are great, definitely worth their higher price tag. However, I ordered the lemon white chocolate cake for my birthday and wasn't happy. The cake itself tastes like it came from Duncan Hines cake mix. Very strong artificial lemon flavor. I love their other flavors but this one just isn't on the same level. I'm just dissapointed that I paid 38 dollars for a cake when I could've made one from a cake mix and got the same thing :(
