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

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.

Making memories through food...

Hello! My name is Melanie Smith and I am the owner/baker for Sweets and Spirits. I believe that lots of our memories revolve around food. Just think about the holidays, birthdays, weddings, special events and even going home... there is always food involved. I want to help make your special day or event one that you will remember.  Every person is unique, so I feel the food for your event should be unique as well.  Lets sit down and see how I can help create memories for you through my food.
