Keepin' It Sweet!
Sweetly: In a sweet manner. Brooklyn: A New York City borough that's pretty sweet with a hint of grit and full of inspiration.
Sweetly Brooklyn is a small batch bakery that specializes in custom cakes
and sweets inspired by life and Brooklyn. I've learned from the best: Grandma always made the best breads; Dad the best pies and cookies; My sister the best cakes. Many of our recipes were vetted by these three mentors.
In 2009, my sister invited me to be on her team for the Ultimate Cake Off. For the show, I was responsible for painting, sculpting and drawing custom artwork for the cake. It was an amazing experience to be on a team of creative people and top bakers and we won! This jump started my cake decorating career and in 2014 I left my job as an administrator in mental health and headed west to do an internship with my little sister. Upon my return, I started Sweetly Brooklyn in 2014 and in 2015 partnered with Pink Canary Desserts in LIC. In 2019, Sweetly Brooklyn opened a brick and mortar in Park Slope! We recently downsized to a non-retail kitchen space.
We bake from scratch using some new and old family recipes with ingredients even kiddos can pronounce. Cupcakes are topped with Italian meringue buttercream, American buttercream, fudge or ganache. Cookies are artfully decorated. I bet you never thought you could eat a Van Gogh, Magritte or Lichtenstein. To order and get a quote email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Word on the Street
"I never understood what all the hype over red velvet cake was, then I tried yours. It's clear to me now."
"I'm not going to bore you with fluff words. These sweets are amazing, period."
"I had to tell my friends they could take the sweets on the dessert table. They said it was too pretty to touch."
"Best cookies, EVER!"
