Cara Linn on the first day of taking over Uptown Sweet Shoppe

In October 2020, Cara Linn purchased the existing bakery known as Uptown Sweet Shoppe, started in 2018 by Betty Smith.  After being a stay-at-home-mom for 10 years, Cara was ready to jump back into the bakery business.  She chose to keep the name at first, but revamped the entire space and menu, hoping to keep some familiarity with the current customer base.  After operating as Uptown Sweet Shoppe for 14 months and growing a new and steady following, she decided it was time to bring in a fresh name that's "hers'" and fits better into where she wants to take the business.  
"This is only the beginning for us, I hope you'll stick around and join us for the journey!"

Our Specialties

A chocolate cake made by Sweet By Cara Linn

Our cakes are baked from scratch, made with organic high quality ingredients and lots of love! They are moist and rich, but not too sweet.

I recommend Cara's Chocolate, Pink Velvet, and Lemon-Vanilla; three of my very own perfected recipes.

Our cupcake icing is different than any other bakery. You know the sweet heavy frosting that most people scrape off?  Yeah, we don't use that here. Our Swiss Meringue Buttercream is a labor of love!  It's silky smooth and again, not too sweet.

You can always ask for a sample when you come in!  We know you'll love it.

Macarons from Sweet By Cara Linn

Our French Macarons are delightfully delicious!  We are always making them fresh and quite honestly, have a hard time keeping up with demand! A little crispy and a little chewy, everyone loves this special treat.

With the exception of a few flavors, ours' are always gluten-free. My personal favorites are Birthday Cake and Pistachio!

We bake our cookies fresh every day!  We always have 8-12 flavors in our case and they're absolutely scrumptious. My personal favorites are S'mores and Salted Dark Chocolate, but the Cowboy Cookie is our #1 Top Seller!  

We also have Keto and Gluten Free Vegan Options for those with dietary restrictions.
