Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?
Well, SweeTies Gourmet Treats Owner Tiffany Colvin says you can.
Her Broad Ripple business at 2101 Broad Ripple Avenue, Indianapolis, has been so popular she recently opened a second location in Fishers at 8902 E. 96th Street.
Colvin, a Broad Ripple High School graduate, has loved turning her zeal for making high-quality desserts into a way to make a successful living.
She loves what she does, so every day is a sweet treat for her. She started the SweeTies Gourmet Treats business in Broad Ripple in October 2009.
“My mother (Patrice Young, who goes by ‘TC,’) was a wedding cake baker and caterer for years and had a dream of having her own bakery one day,” Colvin says. “With both of us having a passion for baking, we decided to open one together. We are a family-owned business. We have no formal training, just a love for baking.”
It was a gamble that has paid off handsomely. It has become a fixture in Broad Ripple and has already taken off in Fishers.
“We decided to open the Fishers location because we felt there was something missing here in this area, which is Sweets,” Colvin says.
The secret to the success is simple: they make delicious desserts.
“We bake everything in-house daily and deliver (our treats) to our Broad Ripple location,” Colvin says. “Our specialties are cupcakes and custom cakes. Once we get settled in (at the Fishers location), we will be hosting different decorating classes for children and adults.”
SweeTies sells custom celebration cakes, wedding cakes, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, cheesecakes, pies and more.
Colvin has her own personal favorites.
“I like the Sugar Cream Pie, Brown Butter Carmel Cake, Carrot Cake, Carmel Apple Pie, Bread Pudding and Tres Leche,” Colvin says. “Just to name a few.”
Colvin wants SweeTies to be her customer’s one-stop destination for all of their desserts. The shop has a popular daily menu, as well as a cake and a cupcakes menu.
Colvin says SweeTies also has a popular food truck.
“Our food truck can be rented for private events,” Colvin says.
Colvin adds that SweeTies is always offering special discounts and offers to their customers. “We also always encourage new customers to come by,”she says.
SweeTies is open from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., Monday-Saturday. The store is located at 8902 E. 96th Street in Fishers and at 2101 Broad Ripple Avenue, Indianapolis. Give them a call at 317-466-9716 or visit them online at sweetiesgt.com.
