I’ve had the privilege and pleasure of trying the cupcakes, sliced breads, and cakes from Sweet by Janine and I can personally say everything was truly delightful. The breads and cakes are so moist. The cupcake frosting are sweet but just right. Everything was also simply beautiful in terms of presentation.

  1. Looks really good but her site as listed above site doesn’t have a menu, prices, complete list of offerings, etc. I guess you’d have to email or call for that info which seems like a bit for a deterrent.

  2. Hi Kim! Thanks for reading! Sweets by Janine does not have website yet but she can easily be reached at Janine.guhit@gmail.com. She also does a lot of custom orders.
