About

A sweet little escape!

The Studio was born out of an idea that there should be something fun and delicious that can be available to everyone! I've been in the bakery industry for many years and I've made beautiful cakes from these bakeries for many years, and I wanted a way to offer people a chance to make their own fabulous creations just like they could get at any of those bakeries.

I know so many people who love to bake but they tell me they struggle with the decoration. Studio Sweets is a shop where you can get a little help with those finishing decorations and then take all the credit for your masterpiece!

And I live and breath sugar... I've come from being an artist on canvas to an artist on sugar. After all, what's better than art you can eat!

This shop is the best of the things I love, it is a place where the studio artist in me can create something sweet and then share it!

    I'm a classically trained artist who traded in my paintbrush and canvas six years ago for fondant and food coloring (although truth be told, I never truly parted with the former!)

Studio Sweets was born from an idea that art should be as delicious as it can be fabulous. I also hold the philosophy that the decorations that generally finish a design can just as importantly be the stunning focus instead.

All the pieces found in the shop are hand-made and individually designed using edible ingredients. All confections are made to order which means unlimited flexibility when designing a piece to fit your event.

Updates to production schedule can be found in shop announcements.

Payment
I currently accept PayPal and all major credit cards. Please complete your payment as soon as possible. It is my policy not to ship an item without receiving full payment first.

Because all items are made to order, I require full payment before I put them into my production schedule. If you'd like to set up payment arrangements for an order, please convo me first to discuss our options.
Shipping
Please include the date you'll need your items by in the 'Note to Seller' section when placing your order so I can put your event in my calendar. I will ship your items approximately 7 days before your listed event to ensure their arrival. This allows better prioritization for me as well as to prevent them from sitting around your home and getting broken.

For all orders that do not include an event date, please allow 2 weeks for production and an additional 2-3 day shipping time for your items to reach you.

I ship all items using USPS Priority Mail. Once your items leave the studio, you should receive a notification of shipping from Etsy that should contain all the necessary tracking information for your package. If you are looking for another delivery method, or you'd like to schedule a faster delivery option, please contact me before placing your order to discuss shipping method.

I do ship items internationally. Once items leave the Studio, they generally will take 7-10 business days to reach you. I account for this shipping time when creating your orders and when they leave the studio so they will still arrive by the date you specify when you place your order.

Unless otherwise discussed, I will ship all items to the address listed on your etsy receipt. Please verify that this address is correct before ordering.

Once your package has shipped, I have no control over it. I do not hold responsibility for inclement weather delaying mail delivery in your area or somewhere in the shipping route.

I do my best to carefully package your items. They are made of sugar and can be fragile, please take care when un-packaging them to avoid damage.
Refunds and Exchanges
All items are edible and therefore non-returnable.

In the highly unlikely event that something happens, I insure all of my packages. If something arrives destroyed due to package mishandling by the postal service, I'll do my best to get you a replacement ASAP. If the replacement requires overnight shipping, however, I am not responsible for the extra cost. If you choose not to have the items replaced, the postal insurance claim will be processed through your name-you will get the refund not me.

With that in mind, there will sometimes be a piece dislodged during normal shipping. Although I will pack your items securely, this is unfortunately a risk you take with shipping sugar. For fondant items, a little water or simple syrup (equal parts sugar and boiling water) will put everything back together. Three dimensional figures are especially risky items to ship. I pack them with the utmost care, but I unfortunately am not able to hand delivery every item. Please take care when unwrapping fragile items.

Only in extreme circumstances will I honor a refund. Please contact me with any concerns regarding your order so I might have the opportunity to correct them.
Additional policies and FAQs
STORAGE GUIDELINES:

Your cupcake toppers will arrive in vacuum sealed packaging to keep them fresh. Please keep these packages in a cupboard and away from direct light or extreme temperatures as both can cause your items to become discolored or damaged.

3D figures should not be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Please note that light and moisture will change the consistency and colors of your items. They should be stored in a dark safe place until they will be used.

FAQ:
** How can you sell licensed and copyright material?
Studio Sweets offers all licensed material and characters through licensing permissions purchased from and granted by my vendors. The images come directly from my vendors, the studio does not claim ownership of any of the copyright materials offered.

**What is fondant?
Fondant is a pliable sugar dough... think edible play dough! It is generally used to cover the exterior of wedding cakes, but makes a great medium to make cupcake toppers and figures from

I use commercial grade fondant and gum paste, I do not use homemade fondant. Your items will be dry when they arrive. This means they will not be soft or pliable. They are similar to a hard candy but will soften slightly when added to the top of your cake or cupcake after a bit.

**What does it taste like?
Fondant tastes similar to the center of an oreo cookie. Very sweet like frosting, but slightly chewy. Children love to... but then it's pure sugar, so no real surprise there.

**How long are they good for?
Fondant when dried and stored correctly can have a very long shelf life. Your toppers will survive in their packaging for up to two months without issue. But please remember that moisture, temperature, and light are the enemy here... any one of those problems can dramatically shorten the shelf life and look of your items. Please reference the storage guidelines above for more information.

**Is everything edible?
All of the items, except for the paper cupcake wraps, offered in the shop ARE edible. Some 3D figures do contain non-edible supports to help keep their limbs attached or their accessories intact. Such supports should be noted in the description of each item.

**Do your items contain allergens (nuts/soy/egg/milk/gluten)?
None of my items come into direct contact with any of the allergens listed above, however I do use a commercial product to create my items. The items listed in the shop DO contain trace amounts of soy and gluten used in the manufacturing process.

I do use two different brands of fondant, one primary and one as back-up. My secondary fondant is vegan and contains no gelatin or egg products. If you are interested in making your items vegan or have dietary needs that require certain restrictions, please convo me before placing your order so I properly make note of such on your order.

**When should I order?
We recommend ordering as soon as you know you'd like them for sure. Please remember to leave us the date you'll need to receive your items by and we will make and ship your items to arrive accordingly so they arrive fresh for your event.

**How soon will I get my items?
All items in the shop are made to order, and some naturally take longer than others to create. Cupcake toppers can generally be ready to ship in as little as 3 days. Once shipped, they will take another 2-3 days to reach you. Please keep that in mind when ordering, and please remember to leave us the date you need them by so we can try to accommodate all orders.

3D figures require at least a three week turn around time to complete. Plus the additional 2-3 day shipping timeframe as listed above.

If you think you'll need your items sooner, please convo me before placing your order to make sure I can meet your deadline or to discuss faster shipping options for your items. Additional shipping charges may apply.

**Where do you operate from?
Studio Sweets is a local business based out of Fairfield, California. I operate as a licensed and registered Cottage Food Operation in Solano County. What this means is that I am a home based business that has been certified and licensed by the County and State and operate in compliance with all environmental health regulations and safe operating practices.
