Virtual Celebrations

Just a few weeks ago, many of us may have been skeptical upon hearing about a “virtual celebration.” But now that Covid-19 has us practicing social distancing, we’re seeing virtual happy hours, birthday parties, showers, and date nights pop up every day.

During a time when we’re encouraged to physically distance ourselves from friends and family, it’s important to stay in touch in other ways. A virtual celebration can help us see familiar faces, worry a little less and laugh a little more.

Wondering how you can take part in a virtual celebration yourself? Here are my 4 favorite ways to celebrate virtually. I hope you’ll try one!

1. Virtual Happy Hour

Co-workers, friends, or family members from afar can all take part in a virtual happy hour! Set a time, choose your favorite drink (or whatever you have at home!) and setup a FaceTime, Skype or Zoom call to catch up.

Especially when you’re used to being together with a group daily or weekly, it can be a great mood-booster to jump on a call and actually see their faces!

Need an excuse for a virtual happy hour? We don’t think so! But some great opportunities to schedule one are for birthdays or weekly TGIF get togethers. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!

For a special celebratory happy hour, order sweet treats to be delivered to the person of honor! Or better yet, to everyone joining you. Treats can be delivered as a surprise, making for an even more special celebration.

 

2. Virtual Birthday Party 

Just because previous party plans had to be cancelled, doesn’t mean you can’t continue on with birthday celebrations!

We’ve had customers purchase individually boxed cupcakes, wrapped cake pops and cookies, or other treats for each of their virtual “party guests.”

Next, they drop off the items at each person’s door! What a fun surprise for guests, even if they can’t eat them together in person. 

Some groups will enjoy their treats together as a group and others will just leave a nice note, party hat, or other fun surprises with the treats! What a sweet way to celebrate while also following social distancing and stay at home guidelines!

3. Virtual Baby or Bridal Shower

In addition to our first and largest location near Kenwood, we have a second location sfdfsdfsd

4. Virtual Date Night

A fun way to have a virtual date night right at home is to order drinks, dinner and dessert from local restaurants and businesses!

Many restaurants are offering delivery right to your door and/or curbside pickup options. This allows you to order

Sweet Options for Everyone

3 Sweet Girls offers a wide variety of regular desserts, from cookies and cupcakes to brownies and rice krispie treats! What you may not know is that we also have options for just about everyone, including gluten free, vegan and keto desserts!

Read on for everything you need to know, including what options we have, when they are available, and where you can get these delicious treats for yourself.

 

Keto

Why keto?

Keto desserts are the newest line of bakery items that we offer. Because these treats are low-carb and gluten free, they are perfect for not only a keto lifestyle, but also any low-carb, gluten free, sugar free or diabetic diets. 

One of the co-owners of 3 Sweet Girls, Lisa, is a dietitian and certified keto coach. She has been living the keto lifestyle for years.

Lisa understands how hard it is to find delicious keto desserts. As a result, she has worked hard perfecting her recipes to bring us a wide variety of keto desserts that are available in store each day.

When and where?

We have the best selection of keto items available daily at our Kenwood location. However, select keto options are also available at the Over the Rhine (OTR) location.

Special ordering for keto items is not available at this time, but customers are welcome to call to reserve items in advance with a phone payment. Any reserved items may be picked up at the OTR location upon request with at least one days notice.

Keto customers travel from all around the tristate to stock up on our keto desserts. A few popular items include cheesecake in a jar, keto everything bagels, jalapeno cheddar muffins, truffles (similar to a fat bomb), pop tarts, donuts, cookie bars, buckeyes , cupcakes and cake pops.

We post about new items on social media regularly. If you have more questions or would like to hear about our current selection, visit the keto page on our website, submit a website inquiry form or call us at 513-984-1100.

Keto items pictured below (left to right):

Peanut butter and raspberry jelly cups, double chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cupcakes with cookie dough buttercream, chocolate chip cookie cheesecake jars and pumpkin cream cheese muffins.

 

Vegan

Why vegan?

As a result of our vegan cupcakes and cakes being dairy free, they are a great option for not only vegan customers, but also anyone following a dairy free diet. Upon request, we can also make special orders that are both gluten free and dairy free/vegan.

Whether you need vegan desserts for a birthday party, wedding, bridal shower, baby shower, or just a sweet pick-me-up, we have options for you. Popular flavors range from Oreo and wedding cake to raspberry vanilla and lemon.

When and where?

Vegan cupcakes are available at both our Kenwood and OTR locations every Friday and Saturday while supplies last. 

Special ordering is available for vegan cupcakes and cakes. For a special order of cupcakes, there is a minimum of 12 regular size cupcakes or 24 mini cupcakes required per flavor.

Custom, special ordered cakes are offered in select designs. Customers frequently order a small vegan cake or an order of vegan cupcakes to accompany a larger wedding or corporate order, giving vegan guests a sweet option as well.

For more information, visit the vegan page on our website, submit a website inquiry form, or give us a call at 513-984-1100.

Vegan items pictured below (left to right):

Oreo, tuxedo, chocolate strawberry, original chocolate, strawberry vanilla, vanilla with chocolate buttercream and original vanilla cupcakes.

Gluten Free

Why gluten free?

We offer a large selection of gluten free items including cupcakes, cake pops, chocolate chip cookies, brownies and cakes. All of our keto items are also gluten free, which add great variety to our gluten free menu.

Our gluten free desserts are great for customers who are gluten sensitive or follow a gluten free diet. Upon request, we can make cupcakes that are both gluten free and dairy free/vegan.

When and where?

Each Friday and Saturday we have a selection of gluten free cupcakes available in both the Kenwood and OTR location. At times, we have gluten free cake pops in store as well. Both of these items are available while supplies last.

Gluten free cupcakes, cakes and cake pops are offered for special order in nearly any of our cupcake flavors. Cupcakes are available in regular size or mini sizes for special orders, with a minimum of 12 regular size or 24 mini cupcakes per flavor.

Gluten free cake pops are available in orders with a minimum of 12 per flavor and design.

Gluten free cakes can be made in any of our cake designs, making them perfect for birthdays, weddings, showers and corporate events! 

We recommend placing all special orders at least two weeks in advance.

For more information, visit the gluten free page on our website, submit a website inquiry form, or give us a call at 513-984-1100.

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is always a challenge.  You want to give something original, but you also want to make sure it’s a hit.  You need a gift that’s classy, but fun.  Something thoughtful, but not too heavy.  You’re in luck, we’ve got just the thing.

Saying, “I Love You,” is sweet.  Saying it with Cookies, Cupcakes, or Cake Pops is even better!  The best Valentines are the kind you can eat.  They’re tasty and tasteful.  So here are some ideas to make this year’s perfect Valentine’s Day gift the best ever.

1. Deciding on the Perfect Gift 

The look of panic is unmistakable.  It’s written all over your face.  You forgot all about Valentine’s Day and you need a gift right now! 

We see it every year and, although we’ll always be here for you in those last minute crises, why not make this the year to plan ahead? Think about it, your Valentine gets a perfect treat AND you have a stress free day.

Our selection varies from cupcakes and cake pops to custom Valentine’s cakes and cookies to pre-made dessert platters! 

Dessert platters are new this year and definitely a hit! We offer three different sizes, making them perfect for any size crowd. Platters include a selection of treats from cookies, chocolate dipped pretzel and Oreos, brownie bites and Rice Krispie treats!

2. Order in Advance 

OK, so now you need to get your plan in motion. The best way to ensure that you get exactly what you want, is to place a gift order in advance. It’s never too early to place an order, so head to our Order Form to send us your ideas!

We offer customized cookies, cakes, cupcakes, cake pops and brownies as well as chocolate dipped pretzels and Oreos. You can order a variety of these items in a matching theme, select custom writing to personalize it, or just leave it up to us to surprise you with a gift package.

Our new Valentine’s Day dessert platters and gift boxes can also be ordered in advance or reserved from our current in-store selection! Dessert platters can even be ordered online– doesn’t get any easier than that!

Regardless of what you order, the most important thing is to place your order.  Remember, we’re going for stress-free gift giving this year.

3. Request Delivery 

Alright, now that you’re going to order that awesome surprise in advance, why not have it delivered?  Delivery is great, because you get cool gift points and impress the friends/co-workers points. 

The only thing that makes a perfect Valentine’s Day gift more perfect is having it sit on the desk all day, so that everyone who sees it says how cool it is.

Besides, ordering in advance with delivery ensures that you won’t forget.  And we know how busy life is.  Who couldn’t use a little forgetfulness insurance?

We use a courier service who will deliver treats just about anywhere. We can deliver locally to homes, offices, schools, hospitals and just about anywhere you need in Greater Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky!

4. Stop in on Valentine’s Day

Finally, if you just aren’t a plan-ahead kind of person you can still just stop into one of our two local locations on Valentine’s Day.  We’ll have a selection of freshly-baked goodies for you “spontaneous” types.

All walk-in items are first-come first-served, so we suggest coming in as early as you can for the best selection.  Believe it or not, you won’t be the only one looking for that last-minute score on the big day.

Call in to reserve items from the store by paying for them in advance. We’ll set them aside and have them ready for pickup when you get there!

5 Reasons to LOVE Our Keto Baked Goods

5 Reasons to Love Our Keto Baked Goods 

There are more than 5 Reasons to LOVE our Keto Baked Goods but here are the top 5!

1. It’s like having your own Keto coach

You have one, because we have one.  That’s right, we have our OWN PERSONAL KETO COACH developing recipes!

Lisa, one of the “3 Sweet Girls”, lives a Keto lifestyle.  She is a Nutritionist with a Master of Science in Nutrition as well as a Certified Keto Coach, who studied with Maria and Craig Emmerich.

Lisa does all of the Keto recipe development and analysis.  You can rest assured that we are using only top quality ingredients and sweeteners.

Many of our customers have been asking for Keto sweets and low carb options and we’ve been listening!  Over the last couple of years we’ve come up with a whole bunch of great options for you, and we’ve been slowly rolling out a few at a time over the past few months.

Come give them a try and feel free to email us with questions and feedback!

 

2. Individual Portions

Secondly, our Keto friendly bakery items come in INDIVIDUAL PORTIONS making it easy to know exactly how much you are eating and how many carbs are in each serving.

Most of them include an ingredient list and a nutrition label so that you can easily track the amounts carbohydrate, protein and fat you’re eating.  Another perk of individual portions is that you can purchase a variety of of items to try!

They are the perfect size to grab individually for yourself or for people you know who live the Keto lifestyle.  Stop in and pick up some regular items for friends, family and coworkers at the same time!

3. Our Keto Sweets are Gluten Free

All of our Keto baked goods are GLUTEN FREE as well as low carb!  This is super exciting, because it means more choices for our many Gluten Free customers.

There’s usually a larger variety of Keto options than just gluten free, so if you are Gluten Free be sure to ask about our Keto options too!

4. So much variety!

Every day you’ll find a variety of cookies, cheesecake in a jar, and muffins.  Peanut butter, chocolate chip and double chocolate and just someof the most popular flavors.  The Keto cheesecake-in-a-jar featues seasonal, changing toppings and our muffins are always a hit.

To learn more about specific Keto options visit our Keto page.

5. They are all delicious!

The best reason to love our Keto baked goods is that their DELICIOUS!

We have been baking and sampling sweets from all over the world our whole loves.  That makes us experts when it comes to dessert!

It is very hard to find freshly baked Keto friendly sweets that are delicious, truly low carb and have accurate nutritional information.

We know that living the Keto lifestyle means largely limiting your sweets.  That’s why, when you do indulge, you want to make sure it’s good.  At 3 Sweet Girls Cakery, we believe that life is too short to eat bad desserts.  That’s why we make sure everything we make from the most decadent cake to the lightest Keto muffin is the very best it can be.

We want to hear from you!

We LOVE feedback and want to hear what you think of our keto bakery items. Please share with us what you would like to see more.  We are here to serve our customers and try our best to meet everyone’s needs.
