Will all those affected by sweet-tooth-itis please stand up?
I’m standing right with you my friends. I’ve had a sweet tooth for as long as I can remember. With all my teeth still intact and yet more cavities than I’d care to admit, cakes and cupcakes remain my weakness.
Imagine you get hit with a craving for pastries. What do you do?
Sure you could run by the supermarket and pay a visit to the bakery section or navigate the aisles to grab a box with intentions of getting your bake on.
Owner and pastry chef Heidi Allison is revered for her ability with cakeballs, cupcakes, wedding cakes and other sweet treats. She created the company in 2006 and furthered her dream by moving to The Shoppes at Brownstone Village in 2011. She and her lean Sugar Bee Sweets staff have enticed cake-a-holics to pay the shop with their offerings ever since.
One thing people love is the personal attention to not only the products she creates, but the customers as well. This is partly because it is a boutique bakery. She isn’t mass producing stuff that’s gonna sit around for days. Plus she’s flexible enough to take your wildest ideas and make them a baked reality. Keep in mind that she will need some advance notice for special orders because of her commitment to quality and a small staff.
Of course, places like this go beyond the standard chocolate, strawberry and vanilla offerings (although you can get that too). Some of Sugar Bee Sweets’ high end flavors include:
- Red Velvet cake + cream cheese filling
- Italian Cream cake + cream cheese filling
- Coconut cake + coconut cream filling
- Tiramisu cake + coffee liqueur filling
- German Chocolate cake + coconut pecan filing
- Chocolate cake + cookies ‘n’ cream filling
- Chocolate cake + peanut butter buttercream filling
- Strawberry cake + coconut, pecans and cream cheese filling
- Carrot cake + cream cheese filling
- Pumpkin spice cake + cream cheese filling
- Chocolate cake + hazelnut buttercream filling
- Vanilla cake + banana jam filling
Can you say yummy?
As much as her people stop in for cupcakes, Heidi is a master of creating wedding cakes to make couples’ special day a delight. Just Google “Sugar Bee Sweets Wedding Cakes” and you’ll find nothing but four and five star reviews from brides exclaiming how much Heidi impressed them. Here’s a recent example:
I cannot say enough things about this bakery! Our wedding cake was BEAUTIFUL! We had the ruffle-up style, 3-tier cake with fresh peonies on top and on the second tier. It was beyond gorgeous! [Heidi] was great, she knew exactly what I wanted and succeeded beyond expectations! [They] were timely, professional and TASTY! I believe my Dad went through the cake line 3 times! 🙂 Definitely recommend!
Just past their second-year anniversary, Sugar Bee’s is definitely going strong. With a nice interior and the coolest retro Coke cooler I’ve seen this side of Coker’s, Sugar Bee Sweets Bakery is a necessary stop for anyone looking for bakeries in Arlington.
