5 Reasons to Love Cupcakes

When we started in the cupcake business, they were an up and coming new “trend.” We had customers ask if we thought the trend would end soon, and here we are over 8 years later, still making tons of cupcakes. 

Why are cupcakes still so loved you ask?! Here’s what I think…

 1. Endless Flavor Options

Cupcakes are incredibly versatile and offer nearly endless options. Did you know that we offer over 100 flavors of cupcakes?! Each day, we have a selection of 8 cupcake flavors in store and you can always order the other flavors in advance.

One of my favorite things about cupcakes is creating new flavors. Inspiration can be found in other desserts, candies, ice creams, and all kinds of other foods.

From Chocolate Chip Cheesecake and Peanut Butter Mudslide to Golden Oreo Sundae and Triple Berry Shortbread, we are always coming up with new creations.

With so many flavor possibilities, there’s sure to be an option you’ll love!

2. Perfect for Any Occasion 

Cupcakes can be dressed up or dressed down for any event or occasion.

We create everything from wedding cupcake displays sprinkled with classy pearls and metallics to corporate event cupcakes topped with company logo toppers, and everything in between. 

Other events include holidays, rehearsal dinners, graduation, baby showers, wedding showers, baptisms, and of course, birthdays! 

Cupcakes are convenient for groups of all ages because they are individually portioned, easy to customize and can be casually enjoyed in any setting. 

3. Convenience

Cupcakes are available every day! You can conveniently order them on shorter notice than our other items. We bake our cupcakes fresh each morning and can sometimes prepare simple orders in just a few days.

In addition to choosing from our daily in-store selection, we also bring the cupcakes right to you with local delivery. 

Delivery offers the perfect opportunity to send cupcakes as client gifts, birthday treats to kids away at college or any other special occasion.

If you need a specific flavor or design, you can also place a special order through our Order Inquiry Form, over the phone or in store. Talk about convenience!

4. Gifts & Favors  

Cupcakes make excellent gifts for the people who take care of you and those you love.  Try giving them to teachers, doctors and nurses, family members and friends, employees and co-workers.  Trust me, the smiles are worth it.

We deliver cupcakes to homes, hotels, businesses, schools and hospitals as thank you or welcome gifts.

So, whether you custom design cupcakes or choose to box up a selection of our delicious daily menu flavors, they’re a great way to make someone’s day!

You can also use individually packaged cupcakes as party favors!  Talk about a sweet takeaway gift for a wedding, business conference, or birthday party!

Need gluten free cupcakes?  No problem we make those too in many of our flavors. This makes it easy to accommodate those with allergies!

5. DIY Cupcake Sundae Bar

Want to decorate cupcakes without the hassle of mixing up ingredients?  Cupcake Sundae Bars are perfect for a DIY birthday party activity, corporate event activity, or just a fun way to spend the afternoon with friends. 

We’ll provide freshly baked cupcakes, piping bags of icing and sprinkles.  All you have to do is decorate!

We offer in-store party options for guests to decorate their own cupcakes, or you can pickup a Sundae Bar to go.  Save a lot of time and mess by having all the preparation done for you.

Another option is on site cupcake decorating with corporate offices.  In the past, we’ve setup a decorating area so that each employee gets one cupcake to keep and one to donate to an awesome organization, like Ronald McDonald house. It’s a great way to enhance your company culture and help the community at the same time.

Flying Pig Marathon

Flying Pig Marathon

Flying Pig Marathon

The Flying Pig Marathon is one of our favorite events of the year!  That’s why 3 Sweet Girls Cakery is the official bakery sponsor of the Flying Pig!  As the bakery sponsor, we get to be a part of the festivities, see the event from behind the scenes, and share our Flying Pig treats all weekend long. 

In this article, we’re going to share a little bit about the Flying Pig Marathon and then give you a peek at the process of making our trademarked Flying Pig Cake Pops.

What is the Flying Pig Marathon?!

The Flying Pig is more than just a marathon. It includes challenging half-marathon, 10k and 5k courses through the streets of Cincinnati as well!

The weekend kicks off with the P&G Heath and Fitness Expo at Duke Energy Convention Center on Friday May 3 and Saturday May 4th.  That’s where runners pickup their race packets and pound a few Flying Pig cake pops, cookies, brownies and other treats for before the race (carb loading, anyone?)!

Race participants come from all over the world to be a part of the Flying Pig! We love having the opportunity to meet them and feel the race excitement at the Expo.

Sunday, we run!  And eat.  And party.  In fact, there’s so much happening on race day, that we couldn’t begin to list it all here.  That’s why you should visit the official Flying Pig Website where you can even download the official Flying Pig Event App.

How do you make Flying Pig Cake Pops?

This is the question people ask the most, so here you go.

To make Flying Pig cake pops, start with freshly baked vanilla cake and buttercream. Crumble the cake and mix it with the buttercream until it reaches the perfect consistency.  Then, roll them into the “pig” shape (sort of like a stubby little sausage).

Next, add candy “legs” and “ears” to the cake bodies.  Once they are assembled, add a stick for holding and dip them into pink chocolate.

After the chocolate has time to set, you can add the details!  Fondant wings, and hand piped noses, eyes, and of course a curly tail.

We work in an assembly line when Flying Pig season rolls around so that we can make the pops as efficiently as possible. There are lots of details involved and we make thousands for race weekend!

We love that they are all hand crafted and no two pigs are exactly alike!

So, where can you get Flying Pig treats?!

The best place to get these little beauties is the Expo along with lots of other Flying pig themed goodies.

If you won’t be attending the Expo but still want Flying Pig treats, you can always special order some or stop into one of our two retail locations between now and race day!

Use our Order Inquiry Form to get the ball rolling on your special order.  Once you have submitted the form, please give us a call to follow up at 513-984-1100.

You can also give us a call first, or email us and we are always happy to chat!

We look forward to the Flying Pig Marathon all year and we’re honored to be the Official Bakery Sponsor.  See you at the race!


Calling All 2019 Grads

Calling All 2019 Grads

Calling all 2019 Grads

Calling all 2019 graduates! Now is the time to place orders for your graduation party dessert display!

Here’s everything you need to know about graduation dessert table options, how to order, and when to get your order in!

Graduation Dessert Tables

Graduation dessert tables are definitely our most popular option for graduation parties. Not only are they perfect for the more casual setting of an “open house,” but they also allow for the most customization and ability to incorporate the graduate’s personality.

One of our favorite aspects of a dessert table is the opportunity to have a variety of bite size treats. This means there’s an option everyone likes and you don’t necessarily have to offer a large dessert item per person, which makes it more budget-friendly as well.

We typically recommend about two bite size items or one larger item per guest. Larger items would be a full size cake pop, slice of cake, cookie or cupcake. Smaller items would be half size cake pops, mini cupcakes, brownie bites, and bite size cookies, as well as chocolate dipped pretzels and Oreos. It’s always up to you to choose what you think is best for your guests!


What are some dessert table options?!


We offer regular size and mini cupcakes in over 100 flavors. They can be customized with sprinkles to coordinate with school colors, be topped with a logo topper, or simply have toppings specific to the delicious flavors you choose.

Cake pops

Cake pops are the highlight of any dessert table. They come in any of our menu flavors and have so much decorating potential. We can dip them in school colors, sprinkle the with accent colors, or even add a grad cap to the top.

Arrangements of cake pops are a way to add height to a dessert table display! We can also make them with a flat bottom to easily set on platters.


We offer cookies in a variety of sizes, from bite size thumbprint cookies to full size logo cookies. Cookies offer customization, as we can mix up icing in any color palette, add specialized writing, and offer tons of shapes for you to choose from!

Choosing a selection of various sizes that are then displayed together creates a presentation that will surely impress your guests!

Chocolate Dipped Pretzels and Oreos

Chocolate dipped pretzels (the perfect sweet and salty treat!) and Oreos can also coordinate with your dessert table theme. They add a little more variety to the table and always seem disappear quickly with any crowd.

Chocolate Chip Cookies and Brownie Bites

We offer homemade chocolate chip cookies and bite size brownie bites. Chocolate chip cookies are a personal favorite, and who can resist a brownie in flavors like red velvet Oreo truffle brownie, peanut butter buckeye and classic chocolate iced fudge?!

Can’t Forget the Cake!

And you can’t forget the cake options! Cakes are an ever popular dessert table original. From a small cutting cake primarily for presentation, to a multiple tiered cake to serve 100, graduation cakes can be designed to spotlight the graduates special interests, degree or school! 

They come in any of our over 100 flavors and each tier can be a flavor of its own. We’ve created graduation cakes for graduates from cosmetology school, the police academy, veterinary school, nursing school and, of course, high schools and colleges.

We can match party decorations with colors from any schools including University of Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky University, Cincinnati State, University of Dayton, and Xavier. Not to mention highs schools such as Anderson, Mariemont, Mason and others!

We would love to talk to you more about design options for your special graduate this year!

So, when and how to I order?!

Graduation season hits right in our busiest time of year, when spring weddings are also at their peak. This means that we encourage you to place graduation orders as soon as possible!

We don’t have a specific order cutoff dates, but all orders are first come first served. We consider orders placed when they have been finalized and paid for in full either over the phone or in person. 

To begin the ordering process, you can fill out our Order Inquiry Form on our website. This will send us all of the information we need to begin talking with you about pricing and design suggestions. Once you have submitted the form, please give us a call to follow up at 513-984-1100. 

You can also give us a call first, or email us at and we are always happy to chat!

3 Tips For An Easter To Remember

3 Tips For An Easter To Remember

Easter is a big deal in our family. It marks the beginning of warmer weather, brighter colors and a fresh springtime start.

Here are 3 tips for an unforgettable Easter celebration.

Decorate With The Bright Colors Of Spring

After a long, cold winter, the thought of Easter could’t be more exciting. Easter means flowers blooming, birds chirping, warm Spring break, the Easter bunny, and finally Bright Colors!

In the bakery, it means turning a new leaf toward colorful cookie orders full of pretty pinks, blues, yellows, and greens!  We love kicking off the season with vibrant flower designs, Easter bunnies and Robin’s eggs.  It’s a perfect opportunity to bring a splash of color to our storefronts. 

You can liven up your home or office by simply including some spring hues.  Swap out the winter greenery for some fresh spring blooms, wear something brightly colored to perk yourself up, or just leave those neon colored post-it notes out on your desk instead of putting them in the drawer.  Any way you do it, color is fun.

Add some spring to your Easter brunch or dinner with custom colorful cookies! Check out some of our designs Here or bring us ideas of your own.


Friends, Family & Fresh Seasonal Food

Celebrating Easter means getting together with friends, family and food. Maybe you’re planning a special holiday meal, your first neighborhood gathering of the year, or you’re just ready to finally fire up the grill.  Whatever the occasion, community meals are great. 

Spring is the perfect time to trade in those frozen veggies from winter for fresh, in-season produce.  Look for tender Asparagus, leafy Arugula, and early Green Beans from down South.  You can also find some of the first fresh herbs of the year like chives and mint.  Try serving peas with some minced chives or adding a little mint to your favorite fruit salad for a tasty and colorful dish.

Regardless of what you serve, all great meals end in dessert!  Easter cakes and cupcakes always make for a special ending.  And they’re fantastic centerpieces for your table.  Try our springtime flavors like lemon raspberry, carrot cake, white chocolate blueberry and coconut chocolate chip.

You can get custom cakes and cupcakes for any party theme or design including bunnies, lambs, Easter baskets, and all kinds of flowers.  Check out our gallery for some fresh ideas.

Try A Creative Easter Egg Hunt

From Easter egg hunts to Easter baskets, there are so many opportunities to treat the kids with sweets.  In our family, it’s a tradition to hide easter baskets around the house and then turn the kids loose to search for them.  You might fill Easter eggs with treats and hunt for them outside. 

Here’s a creative idea.  Why not turn your Easter egg hunt into a scavenger hunt?  You could fill plastic eggs with clues and have your kids work in teams.  Each clue would bring them closer to finding their Easter baskets filled with goodies.

Regardless of how you celebrate, everyone loves baskets stuffed with cake pops, cookies, chocolate-covered pretzels and Oreos!  Stop into one of our two locations for some more ideas that will make this year one to remember.
