Loved this for my daughter's paint party theme! The kids thought it was awesome. I received them quickly and none of them were broken. I would definitely recommend them and use their services again. Talk about a WOW factor
Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe!
Hello and welcome!!
I'm so glad you've come here and decided to stay a while! Sit back and let me tell you a little about us!
I grew up submerged in baking and cooking since I was little. Not because my family was in the business but because from an early age (I'm talking grade school!) I was already obsessed! Instead of after school cartoons, I watched Food Network. Go figure.
After graduating from culinary school and working years in restaurants my husband and I decided I should become a stay at home wife and really focus on all my edible decorations.
I knew I couldn't do this alone, so I enlisted the help of my artsy fartsy hubbie! He is my right hand man! And has become quite the fancy stencil maker! We are a husband and wife team that wanted to offer all the moms (and some dads of course) a chance to really make their own cakes and cupcakes really shine. We know not everyone can afford those fancy bakery style baby's first birthday or sweet sixteen cakes, so we decided to create cute and totally affordable edible decorations so the average mommy could whip up her own special treat and decorate it like they do professionally!
I came up with the name "Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe" literally because I love lavender! Haha. True Story! It made sense to add on the "Sweet" as well as the "Bake Shoppe" to emphasize it's bakery/dessert aspect.
All of our decorations are made in small batches and made to order. We make each cutie out of premium gum paste and food coloring. We hand mix colors trying to get your perfect hue, hand create all our own stencils so our decorations are unique to us, AND hand cut EVERY SINGLE THING OUT! Phew!
We choose to do it this way because we feel it gives our cuties a more personal and less factory-made feel. No Cricuts for us, please ;)
We also hand pipe or in some cases hand paint our cuties so, again, we can really get that mom and pop, homey feel. But don't let this fool you- all our decorations are professional grade and professional looking! We're no sloppy Jo's! ;)
Doing things this way is harder work, and creates a lot more set backs (longer production times), but we wouldn't have it any other way. Sure we could cookie cutter everything out, or go buy a Cake Cricut and make carbon copy decorations... And sure that would be quicker, easier, and less stressful on us...but that's not what we're about. We're personal and friendly and love the simpler way of life. We want to pour love into all our cuties so everything about your special day is exactly how you want it to be. Plus doing it this way gives us hours of time to sit, cut things out, and chat together! Haha. So thank you for that friends!
We strive to make your cuties a one of a kind, "Can't get that anywhere else" beauty that your friends and family will be asking you about!
I am currently living in Los Angeles with my extremely lovely (and very handsome and talented) husband and two cantankerous kitties! I am a Pastry Chef, Wife, Friend, Sister, Daughter, and Follower of Jesus...and I am in love with anything sweet!

Hope to work with you soon!!

I've always been in love with anything and everything involving food since I was a little girl. Culinary school grad and edible decoration fanatic. I am a Pastry Chef, Wife, Friend, Follower of Jesus, and in love with anything sweet!
So glad you are here and interested in purchasing some of our cuties (aka edible decorations). We're here to allow you, the baker (or faux baker) an easy way to make your special someone's shindig that much more special. We know you put hard work into your sweet treat (whether with your own blood, sweat and tears or chasing down those darn bakeries) and we think the decorations should be no sweat to you. We want you to receive all the "Ooooo"s and "Ahhhhh"s and look forward to helping your party theme come together perfectly.
All our edible and decorations are made to order AFTER payment has been received. This allows you, our friends and customers, to have to best possible product :)
We love custom orders and actually encourage them! So, if you see something you like, but would like it tweaked- or have a totally different idea all your own, just convo us! We'd love to work with you and make your...uhh...dream a reality? :)
We here at Sweet Lavender strive to be the best little edible decoration makers as we possibly can be. We design, hand cut, hand color, and hand pipe everything we make- which definitely makes each piece unique in it's own way. No two pieces will ever be exactly alike. No cookie cutter replicas here! :)
We also strive to make sure each piece is wrapped up nice and snuggly so that those pesky mailmen won't break any of your cuties along the way.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
All orders will be made AFTER payment has been received.
We require 7 days before your item is shipped. This is because (depending on the weather) this is the amount of time it takes most our decorations (edible of course) to dry and firm perfectly so they will ship best!
I'm sorry, but all sales are final.
There is a small fee for rushed orders (orders needing to be made sooner than our 7 day policy).
We ship using USPS Priority Mail mail to make sure your order arrives as speedily as possible. Because these babies are edible, we want them to you fast! Each order comes with a tracking number. All orders typically will be packed in their smallest flat rate box. But for larger or custom orders your shipping will be calculated per order according to USPS's weight/size requirements/cost. After your item is shipped, we will contact you and let you know!
Again, we will ship your order out 7 DAYS after payment has been received. If the seventh day falls on a Sunday they will ship on that next Monday. Depending on where you live, you will receive your order within 2-4 days. International orders take a little longer to get to your home. So plan accordingly when you order. If you need your order by a specific date please order before that amount of time we need. Or just convo us and we'll see what we can do.
If you just couldn't make that deadline, we do offer overnight shipping and we will calculate that on a CUSTOM listing for you. Just convo us, let us know you need it overnight and your shipping will be recalculated.
Refunds and Exchanges
We take pride and follow very high standards in creating and packaging up your orders- wrapping up decorations and making sure they're packaged so they're as damage free as possible.
We are not responsible for damage done during transit.
