I had been hearing about Sweet Cheeks Bakery in Apex for weeks from a friend of mine. I finally made it in there to try it out for myself and my oh my… this place is dangerously good! I love that they sell cake and pie by the slice, have a wonderful dine in seating area, truly the best quality dessert I’ve had around here (or pretty much anywhere), and impecable customer service.
Sweet Cheeks Bakery serves ‘Heavenly Baked Goods” and is located right on 55/Williams St in Apex. I headed in by myself in search of a slice of pie. Most days I’m a pie over cake kind of girl, but I’ve rarely met a baked good I didn’t like. As I stepped in the door, I was hit with a wave a sweet smelling goodness that was matched with the gorgeous display of cakes set out across the counter.
As I took it all in, Jackie Green warmly welcomed me to Sweet Cheeks. Jacke is the owner and has an amazing story of her own. I asked her questions about her pies, I sampled a few of the cakes, and I fell in love. I fell in love with so many things at Sweet Cheeks. The atmosphere in the shop is so quaint, cheerful and warm – the epitomy of southern hospitality. The cakes are moist, full of flavor, and complimented with icing that successfully avoids any labels of “too sweet.” I find that is usually my biggest complaint about bakeries, but these “Heavenly Baked Goods” are the perfect amount of sweet.
On the wall, Sweet Cheeks boasts tasting just like your Grandma’s recipes… and I have to say I walked out with a slice of Sweet Potato Pie, a slice of Butter Pound Cake, and a pie pre-ordered for the holidays. When they say “taste’s like Grandma’s”, Sweet Cheeks speaks the truth! My dad is always on the hunt for a Sweet Potato Pie that tastes like the one his mother used to make. I think I finally found it at Sweet Cheeks!
If you want to make an order for the holidays, make sure it is at least one week in advance. If you’re looking for something other than the holidays, stop on by or give Sweet Cheeks a call. They do birthday cakes, wedding cakes, and pretty much anything else you can imagine. They are also my new favorite spot for a special afternoon treat. In fact, I think we’ll be heading over there later this week. Like I said, Sweet Cheeks is dangerously good!
