About Us

How We Got Here.

Our story begins in 2017 as Mixed Up Cakes a small at home bakery making custom cakes for friends and family. It didn't take long for word to spread, and soon became busy making sweets for all sorts of events from corporate events to weddings.





Then in 2021, an opportunity came across when a beloved local restaurant chain shared that they struggled to find high quality wholesale cookie dough. After finding out that this was a growing need for Washington, D.C. metro area Mixed Up Sweets was born.
