Best in town

The cupcakes are the best in town and the cakes are amazing! Not overdone with icing and the cake is moist. The icing is not too sweet. The amaretto cupcakes are to die for!!!!!

Cookies with our new corporate logo

We had a last minute request for cookies with our new corporate logo. Celia went out of her way to make sure we had them for our party the next day! Everyone loved them and she hand-wrapped each cookie with a cute little bow. Our company will be using this great local bakery moving forward.

Not only did it look awesome, it tasted great.

Sweet Cs made a Wrigley Field cake for my granddaughters 1st birthday. Not only did it look awesome, it tasted great. Many guests wanted to know where we got the cake. The cake was light and the buttercream had just the right amount of sweetness. They also made cookies for us that looked like Cubs jerseys. Everyone loved them. This is now our go-to bakery for cakes and cookies. Highly recommended and the people were nice and helpful!

Pleasantly surprised with a variety of products!

I stopped by at Sweet C’s Bakery on Sunday, February, 21st (it was their 1 year anniversary!!!) and was pleasantly surprised with a variety of products! Brownies looked so good, so I ended up buying some and didn’t regret it. They were AMAZING!! Also I’ve got to try some cupcake that they were giving away for free that day. How nice!
I highly recommend this place to everyone! If you are not a big fan of sweets you will definitely become one after visiting Sweet C’s bakery.

One of Palatine’s hidden gems!

This is definitely one of Palatine’s hidden gems!
I was looking for a specific cake for my husbands birthday and I like finding neighborhood businesses that take pride in their products.
I was impressed with her honesty of never having made this particular cake but after researching recipes she offered to give it her best shot and I have to say she knocked it out of the park!! It was so moist and the flavors popped! I was a bit nervous but I personally give those who love what they do a chance to shine and she did. I also tried two different kinds of cookies and cupcake. Well the cookies didn’t even make it home, we ate them driving around town doing other errands and the cupcake called my name later in the afternoon. Prices are comparable with other independent bakeries. Parking is available on the street and you can’t miss the pink awning. Thank you for making my husband happy with his spumoni cake.

Delicious cake, decorated to order!

Cookies are works of art.  The toffee shortbread cookies are to die for. Melt in your mouth goodness!  Great local bakery with home baked goodness in every bite!

We are the lucky customers who ordered an AMAZING cake from Celia.

Seeing it in person when we picked it up gave us goosebumps! Celia far exceeded our expectations and working with her to achieve this work of art was an absolute pleasure! The Birthday Boy (a plumber) was absolutely speechless and everyone at the party stood in line (literally!) to take pictures! 10 out of 10 for Sweet C’s!!! Couldn’t have asked for more!
