More Than Just a Cupcake Shop

It all began with a lifelong love for baking and the dream of owning her own business, just like her father. Stephanie Kissner spent the first 20 years of her professional life as a Creative Director designing award winning branding and packaging, but in 2009, she stepped away from the corporate life in order to care for her aging mother. She decided that it was the perfect time to legitimize her baking skills by enrolling in culinary school where she was able to combine her unique knowledge of package/structure, artistic talent and baking into amazing, show-stopping cakes. Stephanie began working at Sweet Retreat as a part-time decorator, and after a few years became the owner with the continuing goal of providing delicious homemade cupcakes and amazing cake creations. The talented "family" team consists of Stephanie, the Creative Director and owner, two bakers, four decorators, one wedding coordinator and three customer service experts. Every cupcake and cake is baked from scratch using the highest quality, natural ingredients with hopes to bring a smile to your face and make your day a little sweeter.
