Cocoa Bombs | 3 Sweet Girls Cakery

Cocoa bombs are one of the biggest trends of 2020. After many daily requests from customers, we decided to make our own!
In case you’ve missed it, cocoa bombs are a chocolate shell filled with hot cocoa mix, marshmallows & other delicious toppings. 
Simply place it in a mug, slowly pour 8-10 ounces of steaming milk (to taste) over the bomb & stir until filly mixed. Then, enjoy!

Virtual Celebrations

Virtual Celebrations

Virtual Celebrations

Just a few weeks ago, many of us may have been skeptical upon hearing about a “virtual celebration.” But now that Covid-19 has us practicing social distancing, we’re seeing virtual happy hours, birthday parties, showers, and date nights pop up every day.

During a time when we’re encouraged to physically distance ourselves from friends and family, it’s important to stay in touch in other ways. A virtual celebration can help us see familiar faces, worry a little less and laugh a little more.

Wondering how you can take part in a virtual celebration yourself? Here are my 4 favorite ways to celebrate virtually. I hope you’ll try one!

1. Virtual Happy Hour

Co-workers, friends, or family members from afar can all take part in a virtual happy hour! Set a time, choose your favorite drink (or whatever you have at home!) and setup a FaceTime, Skype or Zoom call to catch up.

Especially when you’re used to being together with a group daily or weekly, it can be a great mood-booster to jump on a call and actually see their faces!

Need an excuse for a virtual happy hour? We don’t think so! But some great opportunities to schedule one are for birthdays or weekly TGIF get togethers. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!

For a special celebratory happy hour, order sweet treats to be delivered to the person of honor! Or better yet, to everyone joining you. Treats can be delivered as a surprise, making for an even more special celebration.

 

2. Virtual Birthday Party 

Just because previous party plans had to be cancelled, doesn’t mean you can’t continue on with birthday celebrations!

We’ve had customers purchase individually boxed cupcakes, wrapped cake pops and cookies, or other treats for each of their virtual “party guests.”

Next, they drop off the items at each person’s door! What a fun surprise for guests, even if they can’t eat them together in person. 

Some groups will enjoy their treats together as a group and others will just leave a nice note, party hat, or other fun surprises with the treats! What a sweet way to celebrate while also following social distancing and stay at home guidelines!

3. Virtual Baby or Bridal Shower

In addition to our first and largest location near Kenwood, we have a second location sfdfsdfsd

4. Virtual Date Night

A fun way to have a virtual date night right at home is to order drinks, dinner and dessert from local restaurants and businesses!

Many restaurants are offering delivery right to your door and/or curbside pickup options. This allows you to order

Sweet Options for Everyone

Sweet Options for Everyone

Sweet Options for Everyone

3 Sweet Girls offers a wide variety of regular desserts, from cookies and cupcakes to brownies and rice krispie treats! What you may not know is that we also have options for just about everyone, including gluten free, vegan and keto desserts!

Read on for everything you need to know, including what options we have, when they are available, and where you can get these delicious treats for yourself.

 

Keto

Why keto?

Keto desserts are the newest line of bakery items that we offer. Because these treats are low-carb and gluten free, they are perfect for not only a keto lifestyle, but also any low-carb, gluten free, sugar free or diabetic diets. 

One of the co-owners of 3 Sweet Girls, Lisa, is a dietitian and certified keto coach. She has been living the keto lifestyle for years.

Lisa understands how hard it is to find delicious keto desserts. As a result, she has worked hard perfecting her recipes to bring us a wide variety of keto desserts that are available in store each day.

When and where?

We have the best selection of keto items available daily at our Kenwood location. However, select keto options are also available at the Over the Rhine (OTR) location.

Special ordering for keto items is not available at this time, but customers are welcome to call to reserve items in advance with a phone payment. Any reserved items may be picked up at the OTR location upon request with at least one days notice.

Keto customers travel from all around the tristate to stock up on our keto desserts. A few popular items include cheesecake in a jar, keto everything bagels, jalapeno cheddar muffins, truffles (similar to a fat bomb), pop tarts, donuts, cookie bars, buckeyes , cupcakes and cake pops.

We post about new items on social media regularly. If you have more questions or would like to hear about our current selection, visit the keto page on our website, submit a website inquiry form or call us at 513-984-1100.

Keto items pictured below (left to right):

Peanut butter and raspberry jelly cups, double chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cupcakes with cookie dough buttercream, chocolate chip cookie cheesecake jars and pumpkin cream cheese muffins.

 

Vegan

Why vegan?

As a result of our vegan cupcakes and cakes being dairy free, they are a great option for not only vegan customers, but also anyone following a dairy free diet. Upon request, we can also make special orders that are both gluten free and dairy free/vegan.

Whether you need vegan desserts for a birthday party, wedding, bridal shower, baby shower, or just a sweet pick-me-up, we have options for you. Popular flavors range from Oreo and wedding cake to raspberry vanilla and lemon.

When and where?

Vegan cupcakes are available at both our Kenwood and OTR locations every Friday and Saturday while supplies last. 

Special ordering is available for vegan cupcakes and cakes. For a special order of cupcakes, there is a minimum of 12 regular size cupcakes or 24 mini cupcakes required per flavor.

Custom, special ordered cakes are offered in select designs. Customers frequently order a small vegan cake or an order of vegan cupcakes to accompany a larger wedding or corporate order, giving vegan guests a sweet option as well.

For more information, visit the vegan page on our website, submit a website inquiry form, or give us a call at 513-984-1100.

Vegan items pictured below (left to right):

Oreo, tuxedo, chocolate strawberry, original chocolate, strawberry vanilla, vanilla with chocolate buttercream and original vanilla cupcakes.

Gluten Free

Why gluten free?

We offer a large selection of gluten free items including cupcakes, cake pops, chocolate chip cookies, brownies and cakes. All of our keto items are also gluten free, which add great variety to our gluten free menu.

Our gluten free desserts are great for customers who are gluten sensitive or follow a gluten free diet. Upon request, we can make cupcakes that are both gluten free and dairy free/vegan.

When and where?

Each Friday and Saturday we have a selection of gluten free cupcakes available in both the Kenwood and OTR location. At times, we have gluten free cake pops in store as well. Both of these items are available while supplies last.

Gluten free cupcakes, cakes and cake pops are offered for special order in nearly any of our cupcake flavors. Cupcakes are available in regular size or mini sizes for special orders, with a minimum of 12 regular size or 24 mini cupcakes per flavor.

Gluten free cake pops are available in orders with a minimum of 12 per flavor and design.

Gluten free cakes can be made in any of our cake designs, making them perfect for birthdays, weddings, showers and corporate events! 

We recommend placing all special orders at least two weeks in advance.

For more information, visit the gluten free page on our website, submit a website inquiry form, or give us a call at 513-984-1100.

Gluten free items pictured below (left to right):

Gluten free double chocolate brownie, cupcakes, naked cake and cake pops.

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is always a challenge.  You want to give something original, but you also want to make sure it’s a hit.  You need a gift that’s classy, but fun.  Something thoughtful, but not too heavy.  You’re in luck, we’ve got just the thing.

Saying, “I Love You,” is sweet.  Saying it with Cookies, Cupcakes, or Cake Pops is even better!  The best Valentines are the kind you can eat.  They’re tasty and tasteful.  So here are some ideas to make this year’s perfect Valentine’s Day gift the best ever.

1. Deciding on the Perfect Gift 

The look of panic is unmistakable.  It’s written all over your face.  You forgot all about Valentine’s Day and you need a gift right now! 

We see it every year and, although we’ll always be here for you in those last minute crises, why not make this the year to plan ahead? Think about it, your Valentine gets a perfect treat AND you have a stress free day.

Our selection varies from cupcakes and cake pops to custom Valentine’s cakes and cookies to pre-made dessert platters! 

Dessert platters are new this year and definitely a hit! We offer three different sizes, making them perfect for any size crowd. Platters include a selection of treats from cookies, chocolate dipped pretzel and Oreos, brownie bites and Rice Krispie treats!

2. Order in Advance 

OK, so now you need to get your plan in motion. The best way to ensure that you get exactly what you want, is to place a gift order in advance. It’s never too early to place an order, so head to our Order Form to send us your ideas!

We offer customized cookies, cakes, cupcakes, cake pops and brownies as well as chocolate dipped pretzels and Oreos. You can order a variety of these items in a matching theme, select custom writing to personalize it, or just leave it up to us to surprise you with a gift package.

Our new Valentine’s Day dessert platters and gift boxes can also be ordered in advance or reserved from our current in-store selection! Dessert platters can even be ordered online– doesn’t get any easier than that!

Regardless of what you order, the most important thing is to place your order.  Remember, we’re going for stress-free gift giving this year.

3. Request Delivery 

Alright, now that you’re going to order that awesome surprise in advance, why not have it delivered?  Delivery is great, because you get cool gift points and impress the friends/co-workers points. 

The only thing that makes a perfect Valentine’s Day gift more perfect is having it sit on the desk all day, so that everyone who sees it says how cool it is.

Besides, ordering in advance with delivery ensures that you won’t forget.  And we know how busy life is.  Who couldn’t use a little forgetfulness insurance?

We use a courier service who will deliver treats just about anywhere. We can deliver locally to homes, offices, schools, hospitals and just about anywhere you need in Greater Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky!

4. Stop in on Valentine’s Day

Finally, if you just aren’t a plan-ahead kind of person you can still just stop into one of our two local locations on Valentine’s Day.  We’ll have a selection of freshly-baked goodies for you “spontaneous” types.

All walk-in items are first-come first-served, so we suggest coming in as early as you can for the best selection.  Believe it or not, you won’t be the only one looking for that last-minute score on the big day.

Call in to reserve items from the store by paying for them in advance. We’ll set them aside and have them ready for pickup when you get there!

Check out our website for more perfect Valentine’s Day gift ideas 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.

Many of our customers have been asking for Keto sweets and low carb options and we’ve been listening!  Over the last couple of years we’ve come up with a whole bunch of great options for you, and we’ve been slowly rolling out a few at a time over the past few months.

Come give them a try and feel free to email us with questions and feedback!

 

2. Individual Portions

Secondly, our Keto friendly bakery items come in INDIVIDUAL PORTIONS making it easy to know exactly how much you are eating and how many carbs are in each serving.

Most of them include an ingredient list and a nutrition label so that you can easily track the amounts carbohydrate, protein and fat you’re eating.  Another perk of individual portions is that you can purchase a variety of of items to try!

They are the perfect size to grab individually for yourself or for people you know who live the Keto lifestyle.  Stop in and pick up some regular items for friends, family and coworkers at the same time!

3. Our Keto Sweets are Gluten Free

All of our Keto baked goods are GLUTEN FREE as well as low carb!  This is super exciting, because it means more choices for our many Gluten Free customers.

There’s usually a larger variety of Keto options than just gluten free, so if you are Gluten Free be sure to ask about our Keto options too!

4. So much variety!

Every day you’ll find a variety of cookies, cheesecake in a jar, and muffins.  Peanut butter, chocolate chip and double chocolate and just someof the most popular flavors.  The Keto cheesecake-in-a-jar featues seasonal, changing toppings and our muffins are always a hit.

5 Awesome Holiday Desserts

5 Awesome Holiday Desserts

5 Reasons to Love Cupcakes

When we started in the cupcake business, they were an up and coming new “trend.” We had customers ask if we thought the trend would end soon, and here we are over 8 years later, still making tons of cupcakes. 

Why are cupcakes still so loved you ask?! Here’s what I think…

 1. Endless Flavor Options

Cupcakes are incredibly versatile and offer nearly endless options. Did you know that we offer over 100 flavors of cupcakes?! Each day, we have a selection of 8 cupcake flavors in store and you can always order the other flavors in advance.

One of my favorite things about cupcakes is creating new flavors. Inspiration can be found in other desserts, candies, ice creams, and all kinds of other foods.

From Chocolate Chip Cheesecake and Peanut Butter Mudslide to Golden Oreo Sundae and Triple Berry Shortbread, we are always coming up with new creations.

With so many flavor possibilities, there’s sure to be an option you’ll love!

2. Perfect for Any Occasion 

Cupcakes can be dressed up or dressed down for any event or occasion.

We create everything from wedding cupcake displays sprinkled with classy pearls and metallics to corporate event cupcakes topped with company logo toppers, and everything in between. 

Other events include holidays, rehearsal dinners, graduation, baby showers, wedding showers, baptisms, and of course, birthdays! 

Cupcakes are convenient for groups of all ages because they are individually portioned, easy to customize and can be casually enjoyed in any setting. 

3. Convenience

Cupcakes are available every day! You can conveniently order them on shorter notice than our other items. We bake our cupcakes fresh each morning and can sometimes prepare simple orders in just a few days.

In addition to choosing from our daily in-store selection, we also bring the cupcakes right to you with local delivery. 

Delivery offers the perfect opportunity to send cupcakes as client gifts, birthday treats to kids away at college or any other special occasion.

If you need a specific flavor or design, you can also place a special order through our Order Inquiry Form, over the phone or in store. Talk about convenience!

4. Gifts & Favors  

Cupcakes make excellent gifts for the people who take care of you and those you love.  Try giving them to teachers, doctors and nurses, family members and friends, employees and co-workers.  Trust me, the smiles are worth it.

We deliver cupcakes to homes, hotels, businesses, schools and hospitals as thank you or welcome gifts.

So, whether you custom design cupcakes or choose to box up a selection of our delicious daily menu flavors, they’re a great way to make someone’s day!

You can also use individually packaged cupcakes as party favors!  Talk about a sweet takeaway gift for a wedding, business conference, or birthday party!

Need gluten free cupcakes?  No problem we make those too in many of our flavors. This makes it easy to accommodate those with allergies!

5. DIY Cupcake Sundae Bar

Want to decorate cupcakes without the hassle of mixing up ingredients?  Cupcake Sundae Bars are perfect for a DIY birthday party activity, corporate event activity, or just a fun way to spend the afternoon with friends. 

We’ll provide freshly baked cupcakes, piping bags of icing and sprinkles.  All you have to do is decorate!

We offer in-store party options for guests to decorate their own cupcakes, or you can pickup a Sundae Bar to go.  Save a lot of time and mess by having all the preparation done for you.

Another option is on site cupcake decorating with corporate offices.  In the past, we’ve setup a decorating area so that each employee gets one cupcake to keep and one to donate to an awesome organization, like Ronald McDonald house. It’s a great way to enhance your company culture and help the community at the same time.

Flying Pig Marathon

Flying Pig Marathon

Flying Pig Marathon

The Flying Pig Marathon is one of our favorite events of the year!  That’s why 3 Sweet Girls Cakery is the official bakery sponsor of the Flying Pig!  As the bakery sponsor, we get to be a part of the festivities, see the event from behind the scenes, and share our Flying Pig treats all weekend long. 

In this article, we’re going to share a little bit about the Flying Pig Marathon and then give you a peek at the process of making our trademarked Flying Pig Cake Pops.

What is the Flying Pig Marathon?!

The Flying Pig is more than just a marathon. It includes challenging half-marathon, 10k and 5k courses through the streets of Cincinnati as well!

The weekend kicks off with the P&G Heath and Fitness Expo at Duke Energy Convention Center on Friday May 3 and Saturday May 4th.  That’s where runners pickup their race packets and pound a few Flying Pig cake pops, cookies, brownies and other treats for before the race (carb loading, anyone?)!

Race participants come from all over the world to be a part of the Flying Pig! We love having the opportunity to meet them and feel the race excitement at the Expo.

Sunday, we run!  And eat.  And party.  In fact, there’s so much happening on race day, that we couldn’t begin to list it all here.  That’s why you should visit the official Flying Pig Website where you can even download the official Flying Pig Event App.

How do you make Flying Pig Cake Pops?

This is the question people ask the most, so here you go.

To make Flying Pig cake pops, start with freshly baked vanilla cake and buttercream. Crumble the cake and mix it with the buttercream until it reaches the perfect consistency.  Then, roll them into the “pig” shape (sort of like a stubby little sausage).

Next, add candy “legs” and “ears” to the cake bodies.  Once they are assembled, add a stick for holding and dip them into pink chocolate.

After the chocolate has time to set, you can add the details!  Fondant wings, and hand piped noses, eyes, and of course a curly tail.

We work in an assembly line when Flying Pig season rolls around so that we can make the pops as efficiently as possible. There are lots of details involved and we make thousands for race weekend!

We love that they are all hand crafted and no two pigs are exactly alike!

So, where can you get Flying Pig treats?!

The best place to get these little beauties is the Expo along with lots of other Flying pig themed goodies.

If you won’t be attending the Expo but still want Flying Pig treats, you can always special order some or stop into one of our two retail locations between now and race day!

Use our Order Inquiry Form to get the ball rolling on your special order.  Once you have submitted the form, please give us a call to follow up at 513-984-1100.

You can also give us a call first, or email us and we are always happy to chat!

We look forward to the Flying Pig Marathon all year and we’re honored to be the Official Bakery Sponsor.  See you at the race!

Calling All 2019 Grads

Calling all 2019 Grads

Calling all 2019 graduates! Now is the time to place orders for your graduation party dessert display!

Here’s everything you need to know about graduation dessert table options, how to order, and when to get your order in!

Graduation Dessert Tables

Graduation dessert tables are definitely our most popular option for graduation parties. Not only are they perfect for the more casual setting of an “open house,” but they also allow for the most customization and ability to incorporate the graduate’s personality.

One of our favorite aspects of a dessert table is the opportunity to have a variety of bite size treats. This means there’s an option everyone likes and you don’t necessarily have to offer a large dessert item per person, which makes it more budget-friendly as well.

We typically recommend about two bite size items or one larger item per guest. Larger items would be a full size cake pop, slice of cake, cookie or cupcake. Smaller items would be half size cake pops, mini cupcakes, brownie bites, and bite size cookies, as well as chocolate dipped pretzels and Oreos. It’s always up to you to choose what you think is best for your guests!

 

What are some dessert table options?!

Cupcakes

We offer regular size and mini cupcakes in over 100 flavors. They can be customized with sprinkles to coordinate with school colors, be topped with a logo topper, or simply have toppings specific to the delicious flavors you choose.

Cake pops

Cake pops are the highlight of any dessert table. They come in any of our menu flavors and have so much decorating potential. We can dip them in school colors, sprinkle the with accent colors, or even add a grad cap to the top.

Arrangements of cake pops are a way to add height to a dessert table display! We can also make them with a flat bottom to easily set on platters.

Cookies

We offer cookies in a variety of sizes, from bite size thumbprint cookies to full size logo cookies. Cookies offer customization, as we can mix up icing in any color palette, add specialized writing, and offer tons of shapes for you to choose from!

Choosing a selection of various sizes that are then displayed together creates a presentation that will surely impress your guests!

Chocolate Dipped Pretzels and Oreos

Chocolate dipped pretzels (the perfect sweet and salty treat!) and Oreos can also coordinate with your dessert table theme. They add a little more variety to the table and always seem disappear quickly with any crowd.

Chocolate Chip Cookies and Brownie Bites

We offer homemade chocolate chip cookies and bite size brownie bites. Chocolate chip cookies are a personal favorite, and who can resist a brownie in flavors like red velvet Oreo truffle brownie, peanut butter buckeye and classic chocolate iced fudge?!

Can’t Forget the Cake!

And you can’t forget the cake options! Cakes are an ever popular dessert table original. From a small cutting cake primarily for presentation, to a multiple tiered cake to serve 100, graduation cakes can be designed to spotlight the graduates special interests, degree or school! 

They come in any of our over 100 flavors and each tier can be a flavor of its own. We’ve created graduation cakes for graduates from cosmetology school, the police academy, veterinary school, nursing school and, of course, high schools and colleges.

We can match party decorations with colors from any schools including University of Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky University, Cincinnati State, University of Dayton, and Xavier. Not to mention highs schools such as Anderson, Mariemont, Mason and others!

We would love to talk to you more about design options for your special graduate this year!

3 Tips For An Easter To Remember

3 Tips For An Easter To Remember

Easter is a big deal in our family. It marks the beginning of warmer weather, brighter colors and a fresh springtime start.

Here are 3 tips for an unforgettable Easter celebration.

Decorate With The Bright Colors Of Spring

After a long, cold winter, the thought of Easter could’t be more exciting. Easter means flowers blooming, birds chirping, warm Spring break, the Easter bunny, and finally Bright Colors!

In the bakery, it means turning a new leaf toward colorful cookie orders full of pretty pinks, blues, yellows, and greens!  We love kicking off the season with vibrant flower designs, Easter bunnies and Robin’s eggs.  It’s a perfect opportunity to bring a splash of color to our storefronts. 

You can liven up your home or office by simply including some spring hues.  Swap out the winter greenery for some fresh spring blooms, wear something brightly colored to perk yourself up, or just leave those neon colored post-it notes out on your desk instead of putting them in the drawer.  Any way you do it, color is fun.

Add some spring to your Easter brunch or dinner with custom colorful cookies! Check out some of our designs Here or bring us ideas of your own.

 

Friends, Family & Fresh Seasonal Food

Celebrating Easter means getting together with friends, family and food. Maybe you’re planning a special holiday meal, your first neighborhood gathering of the year, or you’re just ready to finally fire up the grill.  Whatever the occasion, community meals are great. 

Spring is the perfect time to trade in those frozen veggies from winter for fresh, in-season produce.  Look for tender Asparagus, leafy Arugula, and early Green Beans from down South.  You can also find some of the first fresh herbs of the year like chives and mint.  Try serving peas with some minced chives or adding a little mint to your favorite fruit salad for a tasty and colorful dish.

Regardless of what you serve, all great meals end in dessert!  Easter cakes and cupcakes always make for a special ending.  And they’re fantastic centerpieces for your table.  Try our springtime flavors like lemon raspberry, carrot cake, white chocolate blueberry and coconut chocolate chip.

You can get custom cakes and cupcakes for any party theme or design including bunnies, lambs, Easter baskets, and all kinds of flowers.  Check out our gallery for some fresh ideas.

Try A Creative Easter Egg Hunt

From Easter egg hunts to Easter baskets, there are so many opportunities to treat the kids with sweets.  In our family, it’s a tradition to hide easter baskets around the house and then turn the kids loose to search for them.  You might fill Easter eggs with treats and hunt for them outside. 

Here’s a creative idea.  Why not turn your Easter egg hunt into a scavenger hunt?  You could fill plastic eggs with clues and have your kids work in teams.  Each clue would bring them closer to finding their Easter baskets filled with goodies.

Regardless of how you celebrate, everyone loves baskets stuffed with cake pops, cookies, chocolate-covered pretzels and Oreos!  Stop into one of our two locations for some more ideas that will make this year one to remember.
