We've had many opportunities to get involved with the community and it has been so much more fulfilling than we ever imagined. We've been able to thank our Police and Fire stations with surprise deliveries of goodies;  engage with our Girl Scouts, local schools, the Billerica Alliance and many non-profit organizations. We've had the privilege to provide sweets and donations to support many wonderful organizations and causes.

Our menu has undergone a lot of fine tuning! We still don't have our kitchen and store under one roof, which is a challenge for us. It creates limitations, but we're ok with that for now. We've definitely honed in on what we want to be doing at this stage of HOS and we've really tried to harness our passion and pick just a few things to focus on and do them well.

Today we offer all kinds of cakes, mostly by special order, but we stock simple dessert and birthday cakes too. We've had a busy wedding and graduation season. We've done countless cakes for so many different types of events! We stock 18 signature cupcake flavors every week, in addition to our Simply Sweet vanilla and chocolate cupcakes. And we rotate in special flavors as we feel inspired! We stock cupcake minis, delicious tartlettes, six varieties of our house cookies and on Saturdays....we make fresh baked Saturday Morning Cinnamon Rolls! They have been well received to say the least. 

Hello Sweeties! Our most sincere apologies that we haven't been posting to this spot. Hopefully you've kept up with our sweet updates on Facebook and Instagram. 

It has been a journey to say the least. It's been a little over eight months since we opened our shop doors and it has been incredible. We have had the opportunity to get to know so many of our wonderful customers and we've had a blast creating new flavors and making fun cakes! 

Here's a quick overview of what's happened (you can also read our article in the Lowell Sun!):

Opening day was a huge success! With the help of several friends and family members we opened on time, with a variety of cupcakes, cookies, and pastries. Not everything went as planned, but it went! I mean really, what opening actually goes off without a hitch?

The ladies pictured below, along with many others not in the photo were essential to opening on time. We didn't sleep, we hardly ate, a lot of things didn't work, but they stayed by our sides the entire night/day with smiles on their faces and love in there hearts. A day in the memory vault forever!

 As with everything else we bake...Chef Ben makes the dough fresh and from scratch each weekend for perfectly soft, fluffy, warm and delicious cinnamon rolls on Saturday mornings.

So all in all, things are running quite smoothly at House of Sweetness. We survived our first holiday season with much thanks to some kind chefs from CSCA. Again, we couldn't have made things happen without gracious hearts in our lives. Chef Ben graduated from the Professional Pastry Program at Cambridge School of Culinary Arts in March. We have added Sarah to the team an assistant baker working along side Chef Ben as well as getting to know you Sweeties by spending some time at the shop as well. We are growing, we are learning, and we are excited to see how the future unfolds.

While I could only cover the highlights in this one, long overdue update, I will be keeping you updated on additional highlights from the last several months, specials, news updates, and we will be posting a series on how we make things at HOS. (learn what makes our sweets so special!)

Until then...thank you for your support, thank you for your encouragement, and thank you for embracing your sweet tooth!

Have a sweet day,

#TeamSweetness
