Featured Wedding Vendor: Sweet Simone’s

Many times when I meet with couples in our showroom to discuss their rental order, they come to me with only their venue booked. I love to refer couples to my favorite Vermont photographers, caterers, floral designers and the really fun one-confections!

Of course, I will only recommend a cake designer or sweets vendor if I have tasted their work myself, so when Lisa, of The Sweet Spot Bakery and Sweet Simone’s cakes invited me to come to their shop and try a few cupcakes, I was thrilled.

Her shop is adorable. Right on Bridge St. in Waitsfield (be sure to check out the other cute shops and maybe even stop in Peasant for a bite to eat if you have time) the shop offers sweets that you can take to go, or you can place an order for a larger variety of confections.

My favorite cupcake that Sweet Simone’s offers is their coconut which had a very light, butter cream frosting topped with shaved coconut. We also tried the popular, red velvet cupcake, and the chocolate cupcake with a perfect, whipped chocolate frosting. The coconut macaroons were also delicious. I basically stuffed my face with as much cupcake as I possibly could…and then took the rest with me only to finish it off at the office a half hour later.

These were hands down, some of the most delicious cupcakes I have had in a very long time…and I am so picky about cake. The cake was light and fluffy, yet moist and the frosting was not overly sweet…confection perfection.

Sweet Simone’s offers awesome flavors and can really bring any cake design that you could imagine to life. I hope you’ll try it…and bring me a cupcake on your way back home 🙂
