We’re the Official Bakery of the Baby & Beyond Expo Again!

Why is this event so special to us this year?! Because it’s perfectly timed at just two weeks before one of the 3 Sweet Girls’ due date! We’ll be checking out all of the exhibitors and do a little (or a lot..) of shopping ourselves!

We love the Baby and Beyond Expo because it’s gathers a unique collection of vendors with products that you can’t find just anywhere, all in the same place! This makes it a breeze for parents, grandparents, friends and family to see everything in one easy stop. From cribs and toys to adorable specialty boutique children’s clothing, It is the perfect place to find gifts for mom-to-be, birthday presents for little ones, and sweet treats for all of the above! It’s also packed with resources for parents on tons of helpful topics, from nutrition and healthcare to children’s activities in the area and local photographers!

What do we bring to the table?! Sweet treats, of course. We’ll have a wide variety of decorated cookies, brownies, cake pops, chocolate dipped pretzels and Oreos, and cake push ups made just for the expo. Stop by for a snack to entertain your kids while your shop, grab treats to go for a weekend get together, or just treat yourself!

We’ll have ideas and information about special ordering desserts for any gathering including upcoming birthday parties, pregnancy announcements, baby showers, gender reveal parties, and baptisms as well as any other event you could imagine planning! Check out our website to get a head start on ideas as you look through creations we have made in the past or fill out our order inquiry form to let us know what you’re looking for!

This year’s event is on September 15th and 16th at the Sharonville Convention Center. We will be there Friday 10am to 5pm and Saturday from 10am-4pm as well as Friday morning for a special VIP hour from 9am-10am! Tickets are $8 for adults. Children 12 and under are FREE! We can’t wait to see you there!

Queen Bee Half Marathon

Queen Bee Half Marathon

This race is a blast! Whether you are running, walking or doing a combination of the two (Yes, I’ve tried all three options and can vouch for them all) the Queen Bee Half Marathon is one of the most fun half marathons around. Last year, I was handed a bottle of wine as for completing the race and finishers under the age of 21 received a freshly baked 3 Sweet Girls cupcake! How much better can it get?! While these finisher’s gifts may vary year to year, the incredible cheering sections along the race course and views of Cincinnati are there to stay! There is also a 4 miler race option if you’re in search of a shorter race. The Michelob Ultra Victory Party is a perfect way to celebrate the morning post race with food, drinks and lots of good company!

That’s not all! The Queen Bee is more than just a fun race, it’s geared toward women (although men can participate too!) and it supports incredible local charities, donating over $200,000 to them in the past.

How does 3 Sweet Girls Cakery come into play?! We are the official Bakery sponsor of the Queen Bee! We will be a the Bee-U-Tique Expo at Duke Energy Convention Center on Friday October 12th from 11 am to 8pm where you can find running vendors, and of course our booth full of a selection of Queen Bee themed treats! We’ll be making Queen Bee cookies, cake pops, brownies, and chocolate dipped pretzels and Oreos! Whether you’re running, walking or just tagging along for the expo, stop by for a sweet treat. You deserve it!

CINCINNATI (Sydney Benter) — There’s a new shop opening up in Over-the-Rhine that looks and feels like a real life candy land. The sweet treats come from a local mother and her two daughters; together they run Three Sweet Girls Cakery. It’s a family business that, quite literally, started in their kitchen. The Ebbert girls find themselves in an enviable position–surrounded by cupcakes and success. What started as a hobby has grown into a full-scale confection operation.

“We pretty much just did cupcakes in the beginning–just making them for friends and friends of friends and then it just grew into cake pops and cakes and cookies for lots of people,” says Kristen Ebbert. The family expanded their business into a space on Montgomery Road three years ago. They’ve grown so quickly that now they’re opening a second location in Over-the-Rhine. “We just thought it would be really fun to go down there and kind of be in the heart of the city and everything that’s going on,” says Lisa Ebbert, the family matriarch.

Lisa and her daughters Lauren and Kristen are all equal partners in the cakery. “I think the coolest part is that we’re in charge of it so if there’s something we want to do we can try it and it gives us more freedom to–if there’s decorations we want to try or flavors or colors or anything–we can really explore whatever we want to work on; whatever is fun for us,” Lauren says.

The OTR Three Sweet Girls location on East 12th Street is set to open the first week of July 2015.

New Bakery Comes to OTR

By Soapbox Media

Lisa Ebbert comes from a long line of bakers, and the success of her homemade cupcakes led her to open 3 Sweet Girls Cakery in Kenwood in 2012. In mid-July she and her two daughters, Kristen and Lauren, will open their second location at 29 E. 12th St. in Over-the-Rhine.

Over the past few years, the bakery has had customers come out to the Kenwood location from downtown to pick up sweets for parties and meetings. It seemed like a logical next step to take the bakery closer to those customers. 

“We’re very excited to see the growth downtown and want to be part of it,” Ebbert says. “We love Over-the-Rhine, the people and the energy and diversity of the neighborhood.” 

Ebbert and her daughters are currently renovating the 500-square-foot space to be a mini version of their Kenwood location, with turquoise and pink walls and a whimsical mural. The OTR location is considerably smaller than the original and doesn’t have a kitchen, so they will be bringing everything to OTR from the main bakery.

3 Sweet Girls will offer a daily selection of eight cupcake flavors and about 15 flavors of cake pops, including their specialty Flying Pig Cake Pops. The bakery will also have custom decorated cookies, chocolate pretzels and Oreos, cake push-ups and cupcakes in a jar as well as homemade dog treats and pup cakes.

“We hope to bring a fun, creative energy to Over-the-Rhine and hope to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth and bring a little joy to people’s days,” Ebbert says.

The Ebberts are currently hoping to be open before the July 14 All Star Game and plan to have a variety of baseball-themed treats.

Three Sweet Girls opening OTR bakery

By Andy Brownfield

An Anderson Township mother and her two daughters are opening a new bakery in Over-the-Rhine after three years of successful operation in Kenwood.

Lisa Ebbert comes from a long line of bakers. Her grandfather, Edward Nickles, founded the Navarre, Ohio-based Nickles Bakery, and her father, Edward Davis, is a graduate of the American Institute of Baking in Chicago. Ebbert carried that tradition on with her daughters Lauren and Kristen in their Kenwood-based Three Sweet Girls Cakery.

Ebbert and her daughters are now opening a second Three Sweet Girls in Over-the-Rhine at 29 E. 12th St. with a target opening date of July 6.

“We really wanted to go to downtown. My daughters are young, and we love it here, but we also live the city, we love Over-the-Rhine, we love everything Cincinnati, and we can’t wait to get out and be with Cincinnatians,” Ebbert told me. “It’s just fun down there. We love going out and walking around and going out to eat and getting to know that part of the community.”

Ebbert and her daughters started baking in 2010, making cupcakes for friends and family. But more and more of those friends and family members insisted they go into business, so they began taking orders online and in 2012 moved into part of a building owned by Ebbert’s husband at 7458 Montgomery Road to give the bakery business a go. They ended up expanding and taking over the entire building.

The bakery still specializes in cupcakes but has grown into cakes, cake pops, cookies, custom designs and other sweets. The OTR location will sell all of those things, but because the 500-square-foot location lacks its own kitchen, it will have less emphasis on custom designed cakes and more on satisfying the sweet tooth of passersby and neighborhood residents, Ebbert said.

“One thing people really love are the cake pops because we have more than 100 different flavors we rotate all the time,” she said. “People just come in to buy one and end up getting a dozen.”

Cupcake Crazy Changes Name to 3 Sweet Girls Cakery

Cupcake Crazy Changes Name to 3 Sweet Girls Cakery

We are so very excited to announce that Cupcake Crazy has changed it’s name to 3 Sweet Girls Cakery!!! We started out almost 5 years ago in our kitchen at home baking a few cupcakes for friends and then their friends and it exploded. We can not thank all of you enough for the support you have given us. You have been loyal and dedicated and because of all of you we are able to add a new 2nd location in Over the Rhine in July.

We have expanded our product line and while 3 Sweet Girls will always be crazy for cupcakes we offer so much more. Our custom designed cakes have been very successful allowing us to really get creative. We make thousands of cake pops every week. We did not even make cookies in the beginning and now we can barely keep up with the demand.

We are so excited to be able to open this second location in the city, to expand our product line and to offer a whole new brand to grow into. We want to take this opportunity to change our name to represent us better and 3 Sweet Girls Cakery Does that. We look forward to creating all kinds of delicious and creative treats in the coming years!!

Thank you, Lisa, Lauren & Kristen Ebbert
