About Sweet Lucy’s Confections
Sweet Lucy’s Confections is a boutique cake atelier specializing in custom cakes for all occasions. Their cakes are a true labor of love, from the initial inspiration to the final product. They begin their process by baking the highest quality cake possible — no mixes are ever used. When a customer orders a custom cake, they guarantee it will be delivered to them in the freshest manner possible. Their custom cakes are baked fresh upon ordering and their butter creams, mousses and fillings are all made by hand. Yum!
Sweet Lucy’s Confections Unique Process
To begin the wedding cake process, Owner Michelle Osborne said she sits down with each bride and groom at a tasting and design appointment that fits their schedule. And, with so many delicious cake flavors available including, yellow cake, red velvet, chocolate chiffon, coffee, coconut and many more, a couple can’t go wrong with their decision!
Once the cake flavor and design are selected, the baking process begins. Michelle said Sweet Lucy’s Confections is a “from scratch bakery,” meaning absolutely everything they bake is made when you order it. They don’t have any pre-made products in the freezer or the refrigerator, so their cakes are always as fresh as possible when they go to their customers.
In addition to wedding cakes, Sweet Lucy’s Confections is a couple’s one-stop-shop for all their specialty cake and sweet treat needs. Michelle said they also offer groom’s cakes, favors, dessert table treats, chocolate dipped strawberries, bridal party gifts, decorated cookies, cake pops and other specialty cakes for all occasions.
Insider Tip! Sweet Lucy’s Confections is also going to be offering cake-decorating classes for those who want to learn from the best. And Michelle has been told that she makes the best red velvet cake around!
Tips & Trends for the Bride-to-Be
Michelle also shared a great wedding planning tip with us; keep a book or file of swatches/photos or any other inspiration that helps in the design of your perfect wedding. This will also help ensure that your wedding cake matches your overall wedding vision.
For trends, Michelle said ombre layered cakes are all the rage. For example, a red velvet cake really comes to life when you add ombre layers ranging from pink to crimson. Additionally, bling and brooches are always a big hit for wedding cakes.
