Our story: According to the Autism Society of America, 35% of adults living with Autism have never had a job or received post secondary education. Family members of adults with autism often find themselves asking what the future will hold and if their loved one will ever become employed. We started Sweet Spot Bakeshop to employ teens and adults with Autism to give these individuals an opportunity to showcase their talent. We also hope to show other employers that with the right training, individuals with Autism can contribute to society just as much as their typically developing peers. For those individuals with Autism that enjoy food and baking, our bakeshop will serve as their employment sweet spot! When you purchase from us, you are giving adults with Autism an employment opportunity and are baking the world a better place!
Our products: All of our desserts are made from scratch. We've taken the time to perfect many classic recipes. No preservatives are used and we bake to order so that your order is fresh and delicious! Please see the order form below for the full menu of options. Our treats are available by pick-up or delivery. Gluten-free items now available! Our chocolate chip, peanut butter, triple chocolate cookies, brownies and chocolate caramel truffles are now available in gluten-free versions
