I have to take a moment to share my amazing experience at The Sweetest Things Bakery. I saw a post they did about St. Patty’s Day cupcakes last night and I thought it would be nice to get my whole staff some. I messaged them at 9:30pm and asked for 50 cupcakes. The owners was kind enough to make them and even accommodated making some of them gluten free. These cupcakes were amazing and everyone kept commenting on how good they were. If you’re looking for some yummy dessert, take time to check them out. 1881 Lake Pine Dr. Cary
We are so proud of long time vendor & strong black female Melanie who, after many years of incredibly hard work, has opened her first storefront in Cary. Congratulations Melanie The Sweetest Things you are amazing!

Head on over & purchase some delicious baked goods, you will not be disappointed.
I am the luckiest to do what I love and be surrounded by others doing the same. If you are a regular Pop-Up Raleigh visitor, you probably recognize Melanie, owner of The Sweetest Things. She has been baking her way through the pop-up scene for years and she just opened a bakery in Cary! I stopped by today and got a bag full of sweets. Her grand opening weekend continues tomorrow (Sunday, 12-6pm) at 1881 Lake Pine Drive. Follow her for updates and she is always available for sweet requests!
Congratulations Melanie-the bakery is amazing! 💕
The Sweetest Things will be BACK at Pop-Up Raleigh this SUNDAY (October 17th), 12-5pm. Join us for an afternoon market full of local artisans+makers, vintage curators, food trucks, sweet treats and more. Trophy on Maywood will have the patio open and plenty of cold beer!
FREE admission, family+dog friendly

Our host venue for the @weddingdessertshowcase

The owner Marti and her team will be available to greet guests and show you around. This is the perfect opportunity to check out a prospective venue for your event while enjoying treats and giving back to your community - it's a win win win win all around!

About the Venue!
Imagine the perfect wedding venue for your special day and the Pavilion at Carriage Farm will be a dream come true. Surrounded by 112 acres of rolling hills, lush pastures, and classic elegance, the setting features an exquisite 10,000-square-foot Pavilion and stunning outdoor vistas. This space is perfect for wedding ceremonies, receptions, corporate events and family celebrations. The property features spacious amenities, such as a bridal suite and groom’s retreat to accommodate pre-wedding preparation. Let us help you make memories of a lifetime.

A long driveway transports you from a country road to a quiet getaway. Along the drive, catch a glimpse of the deer or bald eagles that call Carriage Farm their home and enjoy the sight of North Carolina’s towering long-leaf pines. The new 10,000-square-foot Pavilion opened in 2017, designed and built by a native North Carolina family deeply rooted in their community. Wood beams stretch to a 30-foot gambrel roof. The Pavilion comes complete with indoor restrooms and catering kitchen, space for cocktail hour, and a place for the bride and groom to prepare. The Pavilion’s grand reception area can accommodate up to 300 seated guests and a dance floor.

Thank you @pavilion_at_carriage_farm for opening your doors to the @weddingdessertshowcase ! We are ALL looking forward to a successful show this Sunday!

Thank you for the lovely cake. There were so many compliments on both how beautiful and it delicious it qas.was
The cupcakes are so amazing and have the best flavor!!
That cookies & cream brownie was oh so gooey and delicious. And don't get me started on the lemon bars, or the buttercream sandwich cookies, or the triple chocolate cookies. All are just THE best!
Mother Nature clearly has it out for us this year. Sadly, there will be no Downtown Cary Food & Flea this Sunday. 😩 Hopefully we'll see you next weekend. Get some snacks and snuggle up with your sweeties!
What's on the menu for tomorrow? Santa wants his sugar!

Cary, NC based bakery focused on creating small- batch treats from scratch.

Happy Earth Day everyone! We wanted to share with you some of the things we do every day to keep our planet in mind.

Using compostable and recyclable packaging: All of the food packaging we use is either recyclable or compostable, whether that be the box, tissue paper & bags, or even the compostable cutlery we give out. While it does cost us more effort and money to use eco-friendly packaging, it is absolutely worth it!

Sourcing products locally: Whenever at all possible, we try to source our products and supplies locally! This is important because a HUGE source of carbon emissions is from shipping things over a large distance. We also want to support local businesses, so sourcing locally is a win for everyone.

Bottles and cans: Instead of having plastic bottles for our drinks, we opted to go for glass and metal cans. Did you know that in the US, only 9% of plastic was actually recycled? Most plastics end up in the landfill rather than be used again. Glass can be recycled over and over again, compared to plastic which will degrade in quality each time. Please be sure to get your cans or bottles to the recycling bin whenever you can :-)

Eco-friendly cleaning supplies: Cleaning supplies are a must in any building to maintain a healthy environment, but certain cleaning supplies pose a threat to both the people inside and the environment. This is why we always opt for biodegradable and safer options whenever we are cleaning.

Be sure to celebrate the earth in whatever ways you can, every small contribution helps!

This week some of my "kids" fussed at me and it was the sweetest thing ever. They were upset that I was giving them holiday pay for Easter, and they didn't want me to worry about paying them when we weren't going to actually be working. I told them, but I'll say it for everyone. I happily pay them because they are worth it. They show up without fail, with a good attitude, ready to work. There is A LOT to learn in this job, and they are eager to make sure they get it right. For me and for the custumers. They are constantly looking for ways to make my day easier. They make sure I eat and take breaks. They accept whatever challenge I throw at them without complaint. I truly couldn't ask for a better group, and I am so incredibly thankful for them.

Today you can find us at two places! We will be at the Food & Flea Productions event and at our home base on Lake Pine Drive at the same time. Our booth in Downtown Cary will feature cupcakes, cookies, and lemon bars to name a few things. Our peanut butter cookies and oatmeal cookie sandwiches will be making a delicious appearance so be sure to check it out! You may have to look for us a little harder than usual this month since we are tucked away at the event, but we promise it will be worth the search. @townofcary

Slight adjustment to our schedule: Starting this week, we'll be closed on Monday and Tuesday. We'll take custom orders for these days as our schedule allows, but we'll mostly use these days for planning, prep for the week, and rest.

A portion of Saturday's proceeds will be going to non-profit Horse and Buddy. Below is a little bit more about their work:

@horseandbuddy is an equine therapy non-profit based in New Hill, North Carolina, The organization works to enrich the lives of children and adults with special needs (known to the organization as “riders”) through equine-assisted therapies in a safe, caring, and inclusive environment. Horse and Buddy has helped riders within the program see improvements in both their physical strength and self-confidence, and has served over one hundred riders in just the past year. The organization also hosts team-building and mindfulness retreats on their sprawling grounds, which consists of lush fields, multiple walking trails and a barn. Although impacted heavily by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Horse and Buddy has found a way to continue changing lives within our local community.

Help us support Horse and Buddy’s wellness work on Saturday, March 26 by stopping by and getting yourself a sweet treat from 10 to 6. We hope to see you there!
