Sweet Confections Takes the Cake

By Elisha Neubauer

Darmayne Robertson never imagined she would own a bakery. Although she loved being creative and overcoming challenges, making cakes for a living was never on her career radar. That all changed, however, when she realized that creating cakes was an art form. Today, Robertson is co-owner and president of Sweet Confections Cakes- and the rest is history.

When asked about her unexpected career choice, Robertson says, "With sugar, eggs, and flour, I can bring cake dreams to life, I can create edible art and put a smile on just about everyone's face! I love the attention to detail and the joy that our cakes bring to our clients! There is no job better than creating gorgeous, great tasting cakes."

Sweet Confections Cakes has been operating in the Harrisburg area for over twenty-one years. Each edible creation is crafted using only the freshest, natural ingredients- all of which result in a cake that tastes equally as good as it looks. Robertson and her staff believe that baked goods make the heart feel good. If you ask Robertson about this theory, she says, "Whether you are happy or sad, baked goods make the heart smile and show you love and care for a person."

The bakery offers over twenty-three cake flavors, as well as four alcohol-based flavors for adult celebrations. To fully customize your cake experience, a plentiful selection of cake-filling options is also available. If you have a special dietary requirement for your creation, don't fret! Sweet Confections Cakes has prepared a menu that includes gluten-free and vegan options. If you find yourself having a hard time narrowing down a flavor choice, perhaps give one of Robertson's top suggestions a try. She recommends trying the White Almond Cake with Raspberry Mousse, the Pink Champagne Cake with Strawberry Champagne Mousse, the Banana Foster Cake, or the Chocolate Oreo Cookie Cake. Of course, cake tastings and consultations are available to aid you in the decision process.

The owners put just as much effort into customer service as they do into creating beautiful, delicious cakes. Each cake is one-of-a-kind, baked fresh, and is never frozen prior to your event; and they offer both delivery and in-store pickup, depending on serving size. They've even compiled a list of Value Cakes to accommodate every client's needs and budget. These efforts have earned them 4.7 out of 5 stars across internet review sites and over two decades of satisfied customers. If you're looking to add a little flavor to your next event, try Sweet Confections Cakes. Robertson promises, "We'll stop at nothing to make sure that your cake is beautiful, memorable and of course, the most delicious cake you'll ever eat!"
