Findlay's Premiere Cupcake Shop

Located in Findlay, Ohio, The Sweet Retreat is Findlay's premiere cupcake shop. 

Owners Denise and Erin met in 2004, in Alaska, while volunteering at Echo Ranch Bible Camp. A friendship, rooted in fun and adventure, spurred the idea to create a "retreat" in Findlay. After taking a basic cake decorating class in the fall of 2010, the baking began in their little kitchen at home. 

With the support of friends and family they have created a love for cupcakes. Their lives were changed dramatically from careers in nursing and teaching, to baker and business owner, when the opportunity presented to open a "Sweet Retreat" right here in their own hometown. They would have never imagined that such humble beginnings of making cupcakes and cakes for friends and small events would soon turn into a full-fledged store and filling orders for everything from birthdays to family reunions and even large corporate events. 

Denise, Erin, and the entire staff at The Sweet Retreat look forward to creating wonderful cupcakes for you for any occasion.

Yes, we love cupcakes, but we also really love wedding cakes, too! And since a wedding is one of the most significant events in the lives of two people, we want to that your wedding cake is as special as you imagined it would be. A wedding cake should not only look beautiful, but it should also taste great, and those are two elements we think we do really well. 

But before we deliver that great cake to you, there’s a little bit of business that needs to be handled: tasting!

And who doesn’t love to sit down and taste test delicious cake, right? 

Tastings are available upon request for weddings. Clients may choose from the list of potential cupcakes and pick 6 flavors they would like to try. A date/time will be scheduled and a $20 fee will be applied. A recommendation of 4 attendees is ideal for the amount of cake. 

If you're interested in a tasting, please contact us. You must contact us in advance in order to find out when our tastings are taking place. We typically hold tastings on one (1) day per month. If you don't think you can make a tasting, consider coming to one of our cupcake happy hours. In the meantime, below is a link to our wedding cake contract. It's always super helpful if you fill out portions of the contract before your tasting date.
