I didn't get a chance to say this at the start of the year like I wanted to but Thank You for supporting me and my little bakery. The likes, comments, compliments and love are felt deeply and I didn't want to go another month without acknowledging this to everyone who passes thru my page and takes the time to show support. And of course thank you to those who have stopped by and bought cupcakes cookies and ordered cakes from us. Without getting too deep I am still grieving for my mother so sometimes when you don't see me here (or on FB) posting on the regular I'm going thru it as well as being busy running Sugarsweet. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy --Take Care, Peace + ❤️.

5 days 5 favorite cupcake flavors.
Day 3: Strawberry 🍓
Secret: A few days before opening I decided that real strawberries would go on top as a garnish but it ended up messy and expensive. At the last minute a facsimile of a strawberry was added instead of the real thing. The trend was repeated with the rest of our cupcakes. What do you think of our faux fondant toppers?

Omg I just had a slice of cake that was served at our office for Black History month.....not only the presentation was on point but the cake was absolutely amazing!
Hi! When do you open tomorrow, Sunday? Your FB page and website show different times. When I called the number to get a recorded message with the info, it indicated you were sold out today (yay!) but didn’t indicate tomorrow’s hours ( 😞 ). Wanted to get there early before you sold out ...
An article about your journey and AMAZING delacasies was posted in a group I follow on fb called True Positive Images They Never Show and I was very impressed!! Now I'm a fan and follow you both on fb &IG. I'm on the east coast, but if I get the opportunity, I will definitely stop in for a treat or two. Best wishes and many blessing on your continued success!!
Can't wait until you officially open.
We survived our first week of our soft opening at Sugarsweet Bakery and its been truly an amazing experience just being open and seeing all you guys stop by! But its only the beginning and we have so much more we want to do and accomplish. But in order to iron out alot of the kinks, a few changes will be happening.

One of the first changes will be the hours--Im getting some feedback that we're closed too early and folks don't have time to stop by after work. Our neighbors are Frohm's Martial Arts who open as we close and we want to accommodate the kids who go there and their parents as well. So be on the lookout for new hours which will entail both closing and opening later. We will, of course, alert everyone of that ahead of time. One of the biggest issues we are currently facing right now is not having access to a commercial oven or kitchen. Our current oven has some issues that go beyond repair. This limits our menu options and our ability to get new product out whenever we want. We are diligently working on getting an oven that will suit our needs so please bear with us on that. The good news on that is, once we get the oven issue is settled, an amazing baker is waiting in the wings and will be working at Sugarsweet, so get ready for a host of items, flavors, etc to come bursting out of the bakery.

Next, we are still putting together our revamped, updated website which will be more e-commerce friendly and easier to order from....as well as more visual. There are still a few glitches and changes that need to be made and once that is up you will find ordering from the website to be a smoother user-friendlier experience than from my last site.

And lastly due to the website issue and the lack of an oven we will not be currently taking any custom cake orders at the moment. We are very sorry about this but without an oven we can do very little. Once our oven issue is settled we will be in a much better position to take on any and all custom cake orders but right now we are limited so please be patient with us, we are working tirelessly to handle these issues. If you know of someone with a commercial kitchen that they'd be willing to let us use one or two days a week--please let me know availability and pricing. Thanks for everything and I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!!
