Are you a licensed bakery?
Heck yes! Sweetiques is a licensed and insured cottage bakery. We have obtained the necessary certificates through the Maricopa County Health Department and we are registered with the Arizona Home Baked and Confectionery Goods Program.
What exactly does Sweetiques mean?
Haha, well… When I was trying to think up a bakery name, I decided I wanted something that was only one word and summed up how I bake. It’s much harder than it seems!
I am very much an old-fashioned baker and often do things by hand. I think it just tastes better that way! And at Sweetiques, I wanted to bake old family recipes, (you know the ‘antique’ ones from your grandma’s grandma or your Great Aunt Ester) and use high-quality ingredients. So, I got creative and made it up. I combined the two words sweets and antiques, and ‘Sweetiques’ was born!
What kind of ingredients do you use?
We believe in using the best ingredients possible and always chose high-quality or organic products. Please visit the ingredients page for our complete list.
We do not use additives, preservatives, or food dyes in our baked goods, except for our holiday sugar cookies, which contain a minimal amount of food coloring in the frosting. All cake and cupcake frosting is colored naturally with fruit or chocolate.
Do you decorate with fondant?
Not at this time. We specialize in homestyle baking, so we only use buttercream frosting or a powdered sugar glaze on our goodies. All of our cakes, cupcakes, and cookies have an authentic homemade look. It’s our signature!
We might offer shape cakes at some point in the future too, just for fun! Keep an eye on the shop for those!
Do you have custom ordering?
Yes, we sure do and it’s easy! Just fill out our custom order form and provide as much as information as you can to get started.
Do you ship goodies to other cities in Arizona?
Yes, shipping charges can be added to your order for certain products (we do not ship cakes or cupcakes). See the Terms & Conditions for shipping policies. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we cannot replace broken or damaged items if you chose to have them shipped.
We also offer delivery for large parties and catering (for a small fee). Otherwise, orders need to be picked up from our location in Queen Creek, Arizona. Please note, we do not ship outside Arizona at this time.
