Gwen baked up the idea for SweetArt Supplies from scratch 8 years ago. 🙂
As with most small businesses, SweetArt Supplies was started when the owner realized there was a need to be filled. Gwen was always an avid baker and was disappointed with the look of the cupcake and muffin liners that marred the appearance of her finished products. She began looking for a source for cupcake and muffin liners that didn’t absorb fat.
“Sourcing beautiful commercial grade cupcake liners that maintain their vivid colours became an obsession. I knew that if I was having difficulty locating a reliable source, there would be other bakers in the same position.”
After 5 months of searching, she located a source in Sweden and now imports greaseproof cupcake liners that don’t lose their colour.
SweetArt Supplies sells more than cupcake liners (also called baking papers, muffin papers, or cupcake wrappers). The website ( https://sweetartsupplies.ca ) lists over 1000 products that are used by both commercial and home bakers. Cake and cupcake decorating supplies, cookie cutters, fondant, gourmet chocolate, commercial grade vanilla, packaging supplies and edible imaging are just a few of the offerings.
Gwen has thousands of cookie cutters in stock. Everything from cutters of animals, baby theme, weddings, sea creatures, farm animals. The packaging supplies range from ‘goodie bags’ to larger containers and are popular with those hosting parties or selling their baked goods.
She attributes her use of the gourmet chocolate sold by SweetArt Supplies to the success of baked good sales at her roadside stand, and those of us who have indulged in ‘Gwen’s Goodies‘ can attest to this.
“Gourmet chocolate is better because it is pure chocolate. Grocery store quality chocolate is waxy and doesn’t melt as well. There is a remarkable difference in the finished product.”
Edible imaging is the newest product available at SweetArt Supplies. Clients supply a graphic or photo which is printed on a fondant sheet. These thin sheets can be applied to the top of cakes, cupcakes, cookies, etc. and yes, as suggested by their name, they are edible.
SweetArt Supplies has products for caterers, commercial bakers, hobby bakers, small home-based bakers and anyone who wants to make their baked goods look as good as they taste.
