Welcome to the new Sweet & Savory Bake Shop! We are expanding in 2019. After focusing on primarily cakes and sweets for more than a decade, this spring we will be opening our doors at the beautiful Village at Worman's Mill where we will offer a full line of pastries, breads, cakes, and savory bites too! And of course we will continue to provide Frederick and the surrounding area with the best buttercream cakes for all your weddings and celebrations. Please browse our new website and check out some of our new offerings. 

Construction has begun! Builders are currently at work, busy getting our shop up and running! We plan to be open in May and will have an official Grand Opening later this summer.  Check back for updates! And in the meantime we'll continue to take orders on a custom-order basis. 

Wedding season will be here before you know it and we are gearing up for a great season! All of our cakes are made fresh from scratch, and customized exactly the way you want it. From elegant wedding cakes to whimsical birthday cakes, our goal is to create a custom centerpiece for your event that will not only wow your guests but leave them asking for more. Visit our Cake Flavors & Pricing section for more details, including our gluten-free and dairy-free offerings.

Dessert spreads are crazy popular today for weddings! Your guests will be wowed with tea cookies, fruit tarts, pies, donuts, and macarons.

Consultations are scheduled by appointment only. We cannot accommodate walk-ins or same-day requests. If you would like to schedule a tasting, please fill out our Contact Form here to make an appointment. We typically hold tastings Tuesdays through Saturdays. Weekday and weeknight appointments are available.

Buttercream has made an incredible comeback with many new techniques that brides love, particularly textured finishes that complement rustic-themed weddings, as well as ruffle and ribbon effects. There are so many great designs we can do with buttercream. Let us show you!

We are best known for our European buttercream made with sugar, egg whites, and butter – that's it. It's a little less sweet than the American version (but we can do that, too).

Sometimes a particular design looks best in fondant. But we encourage you to consider having a buttercream cake because after all,
