The Sweet Shoppe


"Founded on Faith

The Sweet Shoppe was founded on FAITH by friends Nikki Kaylor and Susan Catron! A chance encounter landed the two Georgia girls in a long conversation about the passion they both shared for being in the kitchen. With Nikki growing up in her grandmother's kitchen making chocolate candies with all the women of the family, and Susan baking homemade cakes and frostings alongside her mother, spurred each to pursue their dream of one day owning a shop where others could enjoy their God-given talents of baking.

As a result, the chocolate world and baking world came together on May 11th, 2011 to form The Sweet Shoppe of the South, where you can buy fresh, made from scratch, gourmet desserts, served with a healthy portion of Southern hospitality.


And we were on Food Network's Cupcake Wars, y'all! 


How it all went down............

Susan surprised Nikki with news that they were offered the opportunity to compete on Food Network's "Cupcake Wars!" 

So just three months after opening The Sweet Shoppe of the South, they were headed to Hollywood! 

Little did they know, but they were going on the ride of their lives!

Lights, Camera, Action!!!

Nikki and Susan battled their way all the way to the last round! But despite their best efforts, they came in second and went home with heavy hearts!

 But as we all know, the story doesn't end there...

Ring! Ring! Ring!

 The VERY next day after the show aired, Food Network was calling offering the girls another opportunity to be on the show!

They needed more of their southern hospitality and delicious cupcakes, y'all!

So, Nikki and Susan packed up and left again for Hollywood, California  - again! They knew it would be an exhausting, fun, exciting and possibly heart wrenching competition, but they were up to the challenge!...

We are here to be a light!

Going beyond the southern sweets, The Sweet Shoppe of the South's heartfelt campaign "Eat Sweet, Be Kind," serves as the company's platform for anti-bullying. Nikki (left) and Susan (right) believe that God put them here to be a light for Him, to be an example of kindness, to lift one another up and spread smiles around like frosting. So many individuals are affected by bullying at some point in their lives, and we believe that promoting kindness can make a cupcake at a time. As you enjoy our made from scratch desserts, remember to "Eat Sweet, Be Kind."
