Decorated Cookies for all Occasions 

Decorated Cookies for all Occasions 

Decorated Cookies for all Occasions 

Decorated cookies are perfect for all occasions! Not only are cookies delicious, they are also beautiful, customizable and can be made for any and every celebration. 

We use our favorite butter cookie recipe paired with vanilla royal icing. We have the flexibility to mix colors, customize shapes and add personalized details to match any party’s theme or decorations. 

There’s an exciting challenge to coming up with a new design! Let’s checkout a few of the most popular orders we’ve decorated.

1. Children’s Cookies 

Children’s party themes range from superheroes and princesses to favorite animals and color palettes. We love looking at your inspiration to come up with new designs that will make your child’s birthday that much more special!

 

2. Corporate Cookies 

Corporate cookies are a memorable take away favor from a conference, gift for employees, or dessert for a corporate party. Not only are they eye catching, but they’re a perfect snack mid-meeting that definitely won’t be forgotten.

In addition, you can add a sticker, tag or ribbon specific to your business to really follow through with your branding. Why give away a logo pen or notepad, when you could handout a delicious cookie instead?!

Sometimes the company logo is printed out and added to a cookie. Other times, the focus can be on the company’s colors or even a special product or service that the company provides.

We’ve made everything from teeth with braces cookies for an orthodontist to construction hats for a building company. 

 

2. Holiday Cookies

No matter the holiday, we can personalize your party or get together and make it unique with cookies. Holidays we have made cookies for include Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Hanukkah, and so many more. 

The design options are endless and anything can be made just for you! 

Decorating kits are an easy way to get children involved and decorate to their heart’s content. We will provide you with everything you need to get the decorating party started!

4. Sports & Graduation 

Sports cookies are a game day must, from Super Bowl Sunday to wedding favors featuring your alma mater. Imagine golf cookies for a dad who loves to play, baseball cookies for a team victory or even gymnasts for after a big meet. 

Graduation cookies are often centered around the graduate’s name, school colors and sometimes even their speciality or major.

4. Wedding & Special Occasion Cookies 

Weddings are one of the most popular occasions for cookies. Beyond the big day, engagement party cookies, wedding shower dessert table cookies, or bachelorette cookies for the bride to be are a special touch. 

Baby shower cookies focus on any of a variety of fun themes, from “Taco ’bout a Baby” or “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” to woodland animals and nature. 

Baptism and christenings, bar and bat mitzvahs, and, of course, birthdays, are all opportunities to design cookies that guests will rave about!

Children’s Custom Birthday Cakes

Children’s Custom Birthday Cakes

Children’s Custom Birthday Cakes

Children deserve custom birthday cakes made just for them! Custom birthday cakes have literally endless options for themes, designs and flavors! We love when children sketch out their own dream cake and we get to make it a reality!

Let’s talk about a few of our favorite cakes we’ve made and themes that can bring a smile to your child’s face. Whether you plan to make a cake yourself or want a little help from 3 Sweet Girls, here are some popular themes to get the ideas flowing!

1. Food Cakes 

We have a blast making cakes that look like food! There a challenge to making your favorite food look real but also taste like something completely different. Imagine, an Oreo Cheesecake flavored Skyline Coney?! Yes, that’s exactly what you’re seeing below! 

Cakes can be covered in candy, sculpted into your favorite food (Taco cake, anyone?!), or modeled after your favorite restaurant’s specialty. What’s your favorite food?! Think how awesome would it be to have it made into a cake! 

Food themed cakes aren’t just for children’s birthdays, they’re perfect for adult birthdays, groom’s cakes and company parties too!

 

2. Animals 

Animal themed birthday cakes are always a hit for children’s birthdays year round. They can be based on a character, a favorite animal or a family pet.

Sometimes the cake itself is made to look like an animal face and other times there will be three-dimensional sculpted fondant animals on top. From 2d to 3d, there is so much room to customize and make this your own.

A few of the most popular have been unicorns, foxes and woodland animals, and Fiona the hippo!

 

2. Special Interests

Every child is unique, so their birthday cake should be too! No matter, what your child is interested in, that can be incorporated into a special design. The opportunity to see a child’s face light up when their favorite things appear on their birthday cake is one of our favorite parts of the job!

Video games, emojis, chemistry, sports, tools, pirates.. the list goes on! Some cakes focus on one specific theme while others combine many different ideas into one. 

4. Movies, Books & TV Shows

Another top theme is favorite movies, books and television shows. These can be anything from nursery rhymes and classic children’s books, to superheroes and Disney princesses. We create custom scenery and backgrounds that make characters come to life! 

4. Drool-worthy Flavors

Sometimes, kids (or grownups!) just want a cake that tastes like their favorite candy bar! From M&Ms and Reese’s peanut butter to Oreo cookies and Heath Bars, any candy or cookie can be a moist and delicious cake flavor. 

The beauty of so many flavor options is that you can pick any of our cupcake or cake pop flavors to be made into a cake! No matter the decorations, the inside can be the birthday boy or girl’s favorite!

All of our cakes are three layers of cake with two layers of homemade buttercream or cream cheese frosting sandwiched between them. We also have options for jelly fillings and chocolate ganache!

Hopefully, you are  inspired to plan your child’s next birthday cake! We are always happy to help out with ideas and would love to talk to you about a future order.

Check out our website for more information and photo galleries. You can always submit your ideas to us under the Order Now tab or give us a call at 513-984-1100. We’d love to chat!

Calling 2019 Brides & Grooms

Calling 2019 Brides & Grooms

Calling all 2019 Brides & Grooms

The holidays are officially behind us and now it’s time for all things wedding! January kicks off our season of bridal shows, wedding tastings, and our annual wedding open house. 

Wedding dates can book up quickly, so here’s everything you need to know about where we’ll be, how to find samples, setting up a wedding tasting and saving your wedding dessert date!

1. Wendy’s Bridal Show 

Wendy’s Bridal Show is an awesome place for couples to find many of the area’s wedding vendors in one place. It’s held annually at Duke Energy Convention Center and this year it falls on the first weekend of January.

We will be there Saturday the 5th from 10am-5pm and Sunday the 6th from 11am-5pm. From venues and florists to pre-wedding workouts and favors, there’s a little bit of everything you need.

We will be bringing new wedding cake designs to display, portfolios for you to check out, and of course samples of our cake, cupcakes, cake pops and cookies. This show will not only help couples get an idea of vendors they want to consider but also provides an opportunity to ask questions and even book vendors on the spot!

 

2. Wedding Open House 

January 19th is our Annual Wedding Open House at our Montgomery location! If you’re planning a 2019-2020 wedding, we’d love to welcome you into our bakery to see what we are all about.

We have lots of display wedding cakes, portfolios of our work and individual items you can purchase and try. We will also have free samples of cupcakes, cake pops and cookies in a variety of popular wedding flavors and designs.  

At the open house, you can ask questions, show us your ideas, sign up for an individual wedding tasting and enter to win gift cards and free wedding desserts!

If you’re interested in attending, check out our Facebook event page to RSVP. It’ll help us make sure we have plenty of samples for everyone! The Open House is Saturday January 19th from 11am-2pm. 

3. Scheduling a Wedding Tasting

If you’re not able to make it to our Open House or are ready to talk more details about your wedding desserts, you can set up a wedding tasting with us! Tastings are typically about 45 minutes to an hour and always at our Kenwood location, on Montgomery Road.

We schedule tastings on week days and Saturday with availability varying week to week. We book up quickly for Saturday tastings once January rolls around, so we would encourage you to call early! 

At a tasting, couples sample from our daily menu of cupcakes and cake pops. All of our recipes and flavors are the same for cupcakes, cake pops and more traditional cakes, so this allows us to offer the maximum amount of flavors per day! Tastings are $30 for up to four attendees and everyone will get to sample the flavors.

We love meeting with brides and grooms to talk about their wedding dessert dreams and make them come to life.

We offer tons of variety and customization for weddings. Whether a couple is envisioning a more traditional cake, a cupcake tower, or a dessert table with any combination of a cake, cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, brownie bites and chocolate dipped pretzels or Oreos, we can make it happen!

We also offer dessert options for bridal showers and bachelorette parties desserts, wedding favors and groom’s cakes!

For smaller events, some couples opt to come in and purchase a few individual items as opposed to doing a more formal tasting. This still allows for sampling our products and we have staff available to answer your questions in the store. If you are unsure which option is best for you, give us a call and we’re always happy to point you in the right direction!

4. The Booking Process

When you choose to book your wedding with us, you will make a $75 deposit to hold your date and delivery spot. This goes toward your final balance and then you then have until 30 days prior to your wedding to finalize all of your details, decorations, flavors and numbers.

Some dates are booked up early in the year and others have availability much later, but all are first come, first served. Typically couples will put down the deposit earlier in the year and then we get together to talk final details later!

Being a part of a couple’s special day is such an honor and we don’t take the responsibility lightly. We take pride in creating beautiful wedding dessert displays and getting to know couples year after year! 

The “Order Now” tab will lead you to a contact for where you can send us your inspiration photos and information. We can then contact you with more information, options and pricing. You can also give us a call at 513-984-1100 or email us at 3sweetgirlscakery@gmail.com anytime! 

We wish you the best with wedding planning and hope to talk to you about your dessert ideas soon!

‘Tis the Season.. for sweets!

‘Tis the Season.. for sweets!

‘Tis the Season.. for sweets!

Many of my favorite Christmas memories are centered around food- specifically sweets! In our family, we spend lots of time cooking together, enjoying meals with visitors from out of town, and of course, focusing on dessert! We don’t need much of an excuse to make dessert for any and every occasion. Here’s how I’m kicking off the holidays with sweets. These are DIY options, but if you prefer to eat sweets more than make them, you know we’re always happy to help!

1. Peppermint Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches

The first dessert I made at home this season was these peppermint brownie ice cream sandwiches. Choose and prepare your favorite brownie recipe (you can even use a boxed mix if you’d like!), then freeze it in two large pieces. I baked the brownies on a large baking sheet and then cut it in half. Once its firm, spread peppermint stick ice cream over one half and sandwich them together. Return to the freezer until the ice cream has set and then trim the edges and cut into individual sandwiches.

The trick: Make sure to freeze in between each step to make sure they come out with nice, clean edges. Even if you don’t, they’ll taste delicious, but freezing helps them look pretty! Melt dark chocolate to drizzle and sprinkle with crushed peppermint for the finishing touches. These have so much versatility and van be made in ANY flavor- caramel, peanut butter, death by chocolate…. it’s a challenge to find a flavor that doesn’t pair well with brownies! 

 

2. Hot Cocoa Bar

Get friends or relatives together for a hot cocoa bar! Usually I will whip up a batch of hot cocoa from scratch and then provide a variety of toppings or flavorings for everyone to choose from. This is great because it’s fun for all ages. Just like with the brownies, so many great options pair with chocolate. I’m thinking caramel, peanut butter, crushed peppermint, and of course, marshmallows with whipped cream. To kick it up a notch, add Lucky Charms marshmallows for the kids and Bailey’s and/or Kailua liquor for the adults!

3. Cookie Party

Cookies are one of the most popular desserts of the holiday season. This year, I’ll be making dark chocolate gingerbread cookies, eggnog melt away cookies, peppermint Oreo fudge and buckeyes. Although buckeyes and fudge aren’t technically cookies, they’re so much fun to make and great recipes to make with the family because kids can jump in with you. 

4. North Pole Smoothies

One of the easiest and longest standing dessert traditions in our family is the “North Pole Smoothie”. Only two ingredients needed!  1. Your favorite vanilla ice cream and 2. sweetened frozen strawberries in syrup. You’ll thaw and puree the strawberries, then layer in a glass alternating with softened vanilla ice cream. If you want to get fancy, add crushed peppermint candies to the rim of the glass! The idea is to mimic the red and white stripes of the north pole. 

4 Reasons You Can’t Miss the Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market

4 Reasons You Can’t Miss the Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market

Reasons You Can’t Miss the Cincinnati Holiday Market

We are the official bakery sponsor of the Cincinnati Holiday Market! Why is this event so special to us?! It marks the beginning of the holiday season, landing just weeks before Thanksgiving! We’ll be checking out all of the vendors and shopping ourselves! Here are a few reasons you won’t want to miss out on this event!

1. It’s a One Stop Shop for the Holidays

We love the Holiday Market because it gathers a unique collection of vendors with products that you can’t find just anywhere! This makes it a breeze to find gifts for anyone in your life and see everything in one easy stop.

Since the market takes place right before Thanksgiving, it’ll introduce you to new businesses and give you ideas for creative gifts so that you can get your shopping list checked off in plenty of time for Christmas.

From gourmet foods to specialty boutiques to gifts for your pets, it’s the perfect place to buy, get ideas for presents, and treat yourself to a little something!

2. Unique Vendors

The market is a great opportunity to see vendors that may be new to you and offer specialty products that you won’t see elsewhere! Last year I found incredible gourmet marshmallows, Cincinnati and Ohio themed home decor, beautiful handmade jewelry and the cutest dog hoodies.

There are smaller gifts available that are perfect for Secret Santa or White Elephant gift exchanges, like mini spa kits, small batch candles, and custom t-shirts. No matter who you are shopping for, there are options for you

3. Wine Down

This isn’t just a chance to shop, the Holiday Market is a great opportunity to get friends together and “Wine Down.” The show has an awesome wine and appetizer lounge for you to hit up when you need a break. Grab a glass of wine and catch up before the busy holiday season is in fill swing. There are plenty of other food vendors available as well.

4. 3 Sweet Girls Cakery is the Bakery Sponsor

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 Holiday Market. We’ll have treats for the fall and winter seasons, Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Whether your plan to buy at the market or just want idea for holiday party desserts, we’ll have you covered! We always bring ideas and information about special ordering desserts for any gathering including corporate and personal holiday parties, birthday parties, showers and any other event you could imagine planning!

4 Ideas for a Spooktacular Halloween

4 Ideas for a Spooktacular Halloween

4 Ideas for a Spooktacular Halloween

Whether you spend Halloween trick-or-treating, dressed up for a costume party or passing out candy from home, here are 4 ways to make Halloween a blast!

1. Have a “Pumpkin Party”

Get friends together for dinner. The catch: Make it pot-luck style and have everyone embrace pumpkin season by bringing a dish to share made with pumpkin! From pumpkin chili and pumpkin pasta to pumpkin cheesecake and pumpkin hot chocolate, everyone will be challenged to find a new recipe. It’s a blast to see what they come up with! Maybe even make it a contest and have guests vote for best recipe?! If you really want to keep the pumpkin theme going, have everyone bring a pumpkin to carve!

2. Make it a Neighborhood Celebration 

Halloween is the perfect opportunity to get together for a block party! Have neighbors meet on a driveway or area where everyone is welcome. Make Halloween themed foods, hand out candy together and make a fun themed cocktail for the adults! What a great way to meet neighbors you haven’t had a chance to meet yet and catch up with friends. Kids (and adults?!) can dress up and play games. The options are endless!

3. Have a Halloween Cake Pop Party

Friends of all ages will love getting together to make festive Halloween cake pops. What’s the beauty in making cake pops for Halloween specifically?! There’s no pressure to be perfect, because they’re supposed to be a little spooky looking. Pumpkins, Frankensteins, eye balls, oh my! There are endless designs you can create and no two pops need to look alike! Bake a tray of cake, provide buttercream and candy toppings to mix in and let everyone go crazy!

4. Order Some 3 Sweet Girls Treats 

If you don’t want to make the treats yourself, we’re always here to help! We love creating new designs for Halloween cakes, cake pops, cookies and cupcakes. We can make custom orders for your Halloween party, treats for your trick-or-treaters, or you can stop in for last minute cupcake to treat yourself! Check out our Halloween galleries for more ideas!
