Making memories with food!
Made from scratch with traditional and unique flavors.
Basic cupcakes without a filling or special garnish. Some of these are chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, red velvet, and Oreo cupcakes just to name a few.
Specialty cupcakes are made to order using unique flavor combinations, fillings and/or special garnish. Let your imagination run wild and let's see what we can create.
All cakes are made from scratch using the best ingredients available. I do not use fondant on any of my cakes.
$40 - $55
A regular (basic) cake is an 8" three layer cake with buttercream frosting. Prices will vary with any specialty items you may want added such as candies, fillings, flowers, fruits, and toppers.

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

Candy Corn – Perfect for Halloween! A sweet three layer vanilla cupcake (orange, yellow and white) topped with a light whipped vanilla buttercream and of course, candy corn.

How far do you deliver? (Answer) We deliver our breads and cupcakes locally in the Wilmington, NC area. For any events within the Wilmington, NC area we have a fee of $75 for delivery and setup. If it is required that we break this down there is an additional $25 charge. For any areas outside of the local area would be an extra charge depending on the distance.
Where are you located? (Answer) 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 Port City Java's in the area to discuss or have a tasting.
