Sweet Life's logo perfectly represents this wonderful bakery: whimsical, unique and totally special. Their own website includes the words elegant and wacky...so there you have it!
Their location at 755 Monroe is a little hidden away, and the inside seating is limited. But it's worth the effort to find, and your money is well spent. They offer eclairs, strudel, tiramisu, tortes, and so many tasty treats it would fill a page to list them all. Everything from brownies and tarts to a simply "oh so bad" offering called Nipples of Venus. I've never been disappointed.
The Framboise cake is filled with a heavy, rich custard and topped with raspberries - absolutely to die for! The Strawberries and Cream cake is lighter with whipped cream and glazed berries. Citron Mousse cake is for citrus lovers -- lemon mousse and lemon curd are lucious! And if you love chocolate, they've got more than 5 fantastic cakes that feature chocolate!
Sweet Life makes really good tasting vegan treats in addition to their regular baked goods. The vegan items include no animal products used in the making. They also carry some wheat/gluten free items.
This is your kind of place if you love really great frosting (they don't use shortening in it -- so take my word, it's REALLY good!) Their presentation is out of this world. They often use fresh flowers, and we've had custom cakes prepared for company functions. They truly work with you to do beautiful work. It's not the place if you want a Sponge Bob Square Pants cake -- they don't do that style. So if your kids want squishy cupcakes with Elmo on the top, this maybe isn't where to go. If you want a really quality baked goods, Sweet Life will surely agree with you! Prices are average to moderately expensive, but could range up to the high end for special work.
