About Us


The dynamic duo... LoL!

My name is Melanie Smith and with the amazing support of my husband Robert Smith we are pursuing my dream of baking.  Originally I was the traditional bakery that did all the usual items you would expect but then we began to show how much our health had declined due to LOTS of taste testing.  We knew we had to do something different and FAST!   We heard about the Ketogenic diet and knew people that had been on it with amazing results so we decided to give it a try.  At this point we had tried so many things that just didn't work we had nothing to lose.  


Ketogenic Journey

Our journey began on 08/Jan/2018 with both of us obese with health issues mounting.  Neither of us wanted to do anything but work, eat and sleep.  At the beginning I did lots of research on the subject so I would be able to follow it better than just winging it.  My background is in nursing and research so this was to be expected.  We knew we needed to keep our carb intake under 30 but soon found out that both of us worked off of a different level with me needing less than 20 and Robert needing closer to 25 - 30 a day.   I started working on creating  delicious flavorful dishes that were low carb but full of good fats.  In our journey we missed breads of course so I created bagels, pizza crust, and cheese biscuits.  Then came the sweets, now this was life changing because we found out that there was such a need for others on Keto.  After months of testing on creating the perfect recipes, I decided to share our new Keto goodies to others.  The response was overwhelming and heartwarming!  It makes me so happy to hear others say how much they enjoy something I have created and that it makes a difference in their lives.


Changing the way people think about desserts and food

We have now made it our mission to share what we have learned on our journey.  Currently I have lost 82 lbs and my husband has lost 65 lbs. This is so much more than just weight loss, it is a passion that has made such a difference.   We have never felt better and want to show you that you don't have to give up those things that you love but that you only have to change the way you look at it.  Sweets and Spirits Bakery is here to help you still get your breads and sweet treats but in a way that allows your body to utilize it for fuel and not just store it as fat.  We are so excited to have you join us on this amazing journey.  

 Currently I am an online based bakery that utilizes a local commercial kitchen. I unfortunately do not have a store that you can visit for tastings or to just pick up some goodies.  I am always willing to meet at one of our local coffee shops in the area to discuss or have a tasting.   Please keep in mind that our products are available daily at Old North Coffee, 1207 S. Kerr Ave, Wilmington and at Grinder's Caffe at 890. S. Kerr Ave, Wilmington, NC.  We also have hamburger buns and cake at Slainte Irish Pub at 5607 Carolina Beach Rd. #100, Wilmington, NC.  If pizza is what you crave then head over to Michael's Seafood, Carolina Beach, for your keto pizza crust is available.

Reviews from Customers


Melanie did a great job! The cake was delicious and SOOO beautiful.  We received many compliments and everyone left feeling full and happy!  I would most definitely use again for any future events. - Chelsea, Fayetteville, NC

The best cupcakes I've ever tasted.  I wish you delivered to the UK!!! - Charlie, United Kingdom

Melanie made the cupcakes for our wedding and we still get compliments on how delicious they were over 3 years later.  Can't recommend highly enough. - Will and Tammy, Wilmington, NC

Cupcakes and breads to DIE FOR!!!!  Order some NOW!!! Great for events, parties, or even just for family!  Anything Melanie makes is gourmet divine and a real crowd pleaser! - Wendy, Wilmington, NC

Absolutely incredible!! If you are looking for something sweet and delicious this is the place to go! I will definitely be back for more! - Julie, Wilmington, NC

Best cupcakes EVER!! Melanie goes above and beyond when making these tasty treats. - Lisa, Florida

WoW! If you're in need of an incredible dessert, look no further! After ordering from Sweets and Spirits I am spoiled for anything else. They've created the most beautiful and tasty desserts for several events for me, and I have never been disappointed. Their options are endless: if you can think of it, Melanie can bake it, no matter how strange the request. Sweets and Spirits Reese Explosion cake turned my fiancé' into a dessert believer.  He has a very little sweet tooth, and has never been a fan of frostings, but even he couldn't get enough of the whipped peanut butter topping. We're using Sweets and Spirits for our reception dessert bar, and they have already made the process completely stress free by really taking the time to understand exactly what we're looking for and answering any question I have right away. - Amanda and Cody, Wilmington, NC
