Send off your wedding guests or celebrate your bridal shower in a truly sweet fashion with desserts from Life Is Sweet Bakery Cafe! Says owner Kelly Bareford, “All of our baked goods are handmade with great attention to detail and in small batches, using all top-notch ingredients like high-end Belgian chocolate, fresh fruit, and no preservatives.” The result is delectable indulgences, ranging from small cakes and cupcakes, to cookies, bars, and other handmade confections. Each treat is completely customizable to suit the needs of any bride’s theme.
If you decide to take the cupcake route for dessert, the Mt. Lebanon bakery and cafe offers more than 30 delicious flavors, including Champagne raspberry, salted caramel, strawberry mascarpone, almond tiramisu, chocolate malt, and pumpkin. “We use Italian buttercream frosting on our cakes, which is something really unique to our area,” Bareford adds.
For favors or welcome bags, Life Is Sweet Bakery also boasts a large variety of unique homemade treats, such as personalized chocolate-covered Oreos, hand-rolled caramels, pralines, peppermint patties, chocolate-covered potato chips, and truffles, just to name a few. Guests can even get up close and personal with the high-quality, tasty baked goods, as the adorable shop is available for bridal showers with up to 38 attendants! “We enjoy being creative,” Bareford says. “We like to work with our clients to come up with something original that they’ll love.” — Liz Petoniak
