Grand Opening Planned for Sweet Confections Cakes in Harrisburg

First, they were seen competing on The Food Network, now they are opening the doors for you at their new location. Sweet Confections Cakes will host a grand opening at Noon on Tuesday, April 30th at their new location in Harrisburg. The cake bakery now located behind Stephenson’s Flowers, Rt. 22 Colonial Park at 4702 Fritchey Street, Harrisburg PA 17112, will celebrate with a ribbon-cutting ceremony for elected officials, chamber members, and local businesses and residents.

For more than 25 years, business owners Darmayne Robertson and husband Will Robertson, have been serving their community by working closely with their customers to create stunning edible centerpieces and cakes made with all-natural ingredients. With over 30 years of combined experience in sugar-artistry, pastry arts, baking, and cake decorating instruction classes, Sweet Confections Cakes has been voted Harrisburg Magazine’s Readers’ Choice for Wedding Cakes and Specialty Cakes in 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, as well as the 2015 winner for Harrisburg Magazine’s Readers’ Choice for Wedding Cakes.

The Kutztown University Small Business Development Center assisted the Robertsons in securing an SBA term loan to purchase the building for the new location, as well as an Express Line of Credit to support working capital needs.

“It has been such a pleasure to work with Darmayne,” said Martin Brill, a business consultant with Kutztown University SBDC. “The SBDC listens and understands small business owner’s motivation and diverse backgrounds, we then help them with research, planning, or financials. Sweet Confections Cakes worked closely with our consultants to establish their finances and now assists the business with all it needs to officially hold the ribbon cutting and open the doors to their new location.”

The April 30th grand opening will include a ribbon cutting ceremony along with press and media. The community is encouraged to join the event and visit the new location. For more information on Sweet Confections Cakes visit: https://www.sweetconfectionscakes.com/
