Be Sweet Bake Shop

So here’s the thing about buttercream: it’s delicious. I grew up stealing finger-fulls of the stuff whenever my Mom was baking, and it was the most amazing thing ever. Frosting in general is pretty darn good in every form you can think of, from ganache and fudge frostings, to royal icing, buttercream, and beyond! My […]


Wow, I have been a pretty bad blogger! So sorry for the absence; it’s been almost five months…woa! Anyway, things have been pretty darn busy which is the excuse that I am going to use for the reason I haven’t written much lately (it’s a pretty good excuse, hehe). Between running the bake shop as […]


Well, the holiday season is rapidly coming to a close. It’s amazing how fast time flies by, and the new year is already here! It was just over a year ago that I moved back from New York to start the shop, and now I’m getting ready to open a store. I still can’t wrap […]


That’s right, it’s December! Gosh, how time flies! Well, the busiest time of the year for me is already starting (the second week of December is fully booked!), so I figured it would be fun to feature a few festive  (wow, that’s a lot “f”s in one sentence) desserts. I had been so busy with […]


Halloween and other stuff…

November 15, 2012

Well it’s been a few weeks. Halloween passed–we dressed up, we made some spooky and gory treats, we ate candy (probably a little too much candy!), and we had a good amount of fun scares. Halloween is just one of those holidays that are a lot of fun–the possibilities are endless, and that’s another reason […]

October 20, 2012

I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved the whole “play on words” kind of thing. I remember way back when, when I first made the decision to start Be Sweet, one of my toughest decisions was to come up with a name! While I was working at the bakery in NYC, I was lucky […]

I don’t know if it’s a curse or a gift, but my mind is ALWAYS preoccupied with coming up with new cupcake flavors. When I try to go to sleep, I can’t because all I’m thinking about is if this flavor will go well with that flavor, and on top of that, what garnishes would […]


A New Look!

August 30, 2012

Hi all! So sorry for the delay in writing…I just can never find time to get everything done in the day. I sometimes wish I didn’t have to sleep so that I can fit everything in. I just noticed that my last post was almost exactly one month ago. A whole month went by and […]


Hello! It’s been a few weeks again, but so much has been going on, it’s hard to keep up. I love being so tired from work–I mean, even though my feet usually hurt and I’m in need of a good massage at the end of a big order, but it’s that good kind of tired […]


Happy Monday! I know some people don’t think there is really any reason to be happy on Mondays, but it’s always nice to say anyway, especially if someone is having a “case of the Mondays” (anyone seen “Office Space”? Haha…). Well, it’s been awhile since the last post, I just can never find time to […]
