As you drive down CR 33 in Elkhart, you will find the sweetest little spot in the area. Sweet-Em’s Cake Shoppe was founded by owner and pastry artist, Emily Stump, at the age of 21. She began making sweet treats and cakes as a child and knew she wanted to turn it into a business someday – and that is exactly what she did.
Her talent and love for pastries took off when she purchased a space in the Old Bag Factory. As her business and clientele continued to grow, so did the variety of cakes and other delicious items offered. Today, you can choose from a variety of sweets including wedding cakes, specialty cakes, cookies, cake pops and delectable desserts.
Everyone deserves a beautiful cake for their special event, and it could be argued that there is no bigger celebration than your wedding day. At Sweet-Em’s you will be greeted with smiles from their friendly staff and treated with the utmost respect. As you walk in the doors, you will find cakes displayed all around the shoppe to inspire you. Their specialty is creating custom fondant and buttercream tiered cakes, naked cakes, trendy cakes or whatever your heart desires.
Emily and her staff will work side-by-side with couples through the entire wedding cake process to make sure your cake is as special as your big day. Couples can schedule a tasting at the shoppe where Emily will provide you with several options of cake flavors, fillings, icings and decorating ideas.
At Sweet-Em’s, there is a cake for every special occasion including baby showers, anniversaries, corporate events, birthdays and more. The cake artists can fully customize your cake to whatever flavor and designs you are looking for. You can get creative when
If you are in the mood for something sweet but not a full cake, no problem! Sweet-Em’s can make customized cupcakes with any of the flavors that traditionally would go in a cake.

If you are purchasing items for a group, the cupcake minimum is one dozen. All other treats are a minimum of two dozen.

The team at Sweet-Em’s are true artists when it comes to bringing your creative vision to life. If you are looking for a very detailed cake design, you can find inspiration on their website and social media pages. They will likely be able to match your cake design to whatever the theme of your party is. For example, they can make superhero cakes, princess cakes, unicorn cakes, sports team cakes, race car cakes and so much more. The options are nearly endless.
The process of ordering your custom cake begins by speaking with the team and deciding on an idea. From there, you can place the order by calling the shop, emailing them, or visiting the shop in person. If you’re looking for a very detailed cake, you can call ahead to schedule an appointment as their time may be limited and the custom cakes take many hours of hard work to create.
