About the Business!

I am currently a one woman show, and I operate out of my home in downtown Northport! I have been baking my entire life, but in the last two and a half years, have decided to turn this passion into a business, and Sweetthang’s was born!

This has been the most incredible journey so far, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this business!

My absolute favorite cake is classic Vanilla Cake with Vanilla Bean Buttercream. A close second is the delicacy that is Coconut Cake! If I had to narrow it down, I would have to say that my most popular flavors are Vanilla, Red Velvet, and Strawberry!

The smallest cake I offer is a 4” cake, and the largest is a 14” cake!

Do you deliver?

Yes, I have delivered as far as north Huntsville! Delivery is complimentary within 20 miles of Tuscaloosa, outside of that incurs a nominal fee.

Absolutely! From baby showers, to 100th birthdays, and everywhere in between, I do them all!

What can you tell me about getting started?

I would love to sit down and talk with you about your special day! I offer tastings, and this is where we both brainstorm and plan your dream cake! We look at inspiration photos together, get a feel for your style and vision for your wedding day, draw up designs, and the best part is… you get to eat delicious cupcakes! Tastings are $25.

What is my relationship to the featured wedding vendors? I am always transparent with my audience. These vendors were hand selected by me to feature in this post. They were each charged a small fee to cover my time in creating their feature as this provides a means for me to earn an income. I reached out to them and offered the opportunity, they did not seek me out looking to advertise. I only feature venues and vendors I truly think are great!
