The Holidays are Coming!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

…For some.

For others it’s not exactly all that fun:

“Do what to the butter and sugar?”

“Honey, I think the pies are burning…”

“How the H*** could you forget the ______? The ONE thing that you were responsible for?”

Yes, every year the holidays bring incredible amounts of stress and frustration along with good memories and cheer. There is nothing that can be done about the past, but there is a way to avoid it this year. Here’s the secret:

Thats right, the solutions to all some of your holiday problems is Sweet. We may not be able to swap out your crazy drunk cousins or remind you to check the oven, but we can bring you gourmet artisan desserts that will be sure to please all of your guests. You’ve seen our mini cheesecakes, tarts, and pies, but this holiday season full sized versions are available by special order. So here is what you do:

1. Call Sweet/Small Potatoes Catering and Events at 415.896.1296

2. Tell us what you want, and how many (See menu below)

3. Decide on Pick up or Delivery

4. Problem Solved

Could it get any easier? No, not really.

Desserts For All: Our Vegan Menu

Since the day we opened we have had many customer requests. Some were ridiculous, “Do you have any thing fat free and low calorie?”, while others were actually quite impressive. Of the latter, the most frequent was, “Do you make anything Vegan?”. Before, to our displeasure, we had to answer no and turn away our dear customers.

Not anymore….

That’s right Sweet now carries multiple Vegan items. It all began with our chocolate coconut ganache tart (pictured left). A rich and creamy raw tart comprised of fresh coconut, almonds, cocoa powder, coconut oil, and agave. In the test kitchen it won our taste buds over at the first bite. And we weren’t the only ones,

“I tried the vegan chocolate tart and I’m in love.” – Queencie P. (Via Yelp)

Next we brought in Raspberry truffles-two bites of dairy-free bliss. And because we love you, cookies and cupcakes soon followed. Now in our shop we are excited to display some of our cutest cupcakes ever!

Want to know the Sweetest part? Vegan cakes! Yes, now you can special order a vegan cake for your next party or to just treat yourself. Give us a call at (415) 896.1296 to place an order!

Making Your Special Occasions Even Sweeter

Now I know how convenient our store can be for all those last minute parties, or when you accidentally forget a birthday or other occasion; you just come in and grab a cake or an assortment of cupcakes, arrange them nicely on a platter and nobody will ever know. Imagine, however, if you could take that to the next level…Fun, cute, creative, and one hundred percent unique! With a few days advance notice, Sweet can produce custom creations from the small and elegant, to crazy and truly one of a kind…

Yes, we even do cakes that bring back childhood memories.

My favorite orders always begin with “Well, I have kind of an odd request, I don’t know if you guys can do it…” being that our motto is “If you can think it, we can do it”  no order is out of the question. The crazier you think it is, the more fun we have with it. That isn’t to say, however, that we completely disregard the more traditional and conservative…

We love that as well. Creating the perfect cake (or cakes!) for your special day is a favorite of ours. We work closely with our brides, making sure that on the day of the wedding she has one less thing to worry about.

Whether you want cakes, cupcakes, chocolates, macaroons, tarts or a combination of any or all of the above, Sweet can make it happen.

Give us a call!

Going Beyond the Cupcake

Since we first opened our doors at Sweet a little over a year ago, we have been successfully satisfying San Francisco’s by providing a wide array of artisan baked goods and confections. Like many other bakeries, we fell victim to the cupcake craze and couldn’t help but to offer our own unique cakes.

Our cupcakes are by far the most popular of all our desserts, as we sell dozens of dozens each week. While we do find them exceptional, we’ve come to realize Cupcakes are just not for us. We like them and all, but our creativity goes way beyond the little cakes. So, we have decided to do something about it; we will no longer be known as just another cupcake shop but a full blown gourmet artisan dessert shop.

Now, this isn’t to say that we will be getting rid of our cupcakes all together–even we would miss our caramel filled salted chocolate ganache cupcake and our roasted red velvet cupcakes–we will just have fewer available, and instead will be filling our shop with newer items, and more desserts that we love.

If you have tried our tarts before, you know how irresistible and satisfying they are, yet we have never offered more than a few at time, even though they are a staff favorite. Now you can look forward to a wider selection of unique and delicious tarts: Chocolate peanut butter, Creme Brulee pie, seasonal fruit crumbles, Lemon curd in a rosemary shell, and so many more to come.

Now, for the new sweet we are most excited about….


Light, crispy, and perfectly sweet macaroons. They’re so delightfully perfect that we cannot believe we did not bring them in sooner. Our flavors range from the classic pistachio, almond and chocolate, to the new and just fun Root beer Float, vanilla Raspberry and Orange Spice. These flavors will change weekly, as we have many more to come. So come on in and try one…or two, and who knows, maybe you just might find your new favorite!

The Perfect Gift for Really Anything

Get into a fight with your significant other? Forget a birthday? Get invited to a last  minute dinner party? Just want to say thank you?

Sounds like you need to buy a gift, and what could be more perfect than something Sweet?  Whether it be a box of cupcakes, or an assortment of our artisan candies, something from Sweet is perfect for any occasion.

We at Sweet know how stressful it can be to find the perfect gift, so we are here to help. With our creative minds, and ability to customize a gift to your specific needs you will have a whole new, and easier gift-buying experience.

The “I F*cked up” box pictured above is one of our specialties, and can  be used to mend all sorts of situations (when you have pushed one too many of your significant other’s buttons or have have been fighting with your best friend, for example).  Well, from our experience we have found out that it is hard to stay mad or upset when you have a cupcake or bag of caramels in hand. Adorned with a ribbon of your choice, it is just too darn cute to pass up!
