Bria Howard, Owner and CEO, was initially inspired to start the home-based gourmet baked goods business as a high-school student after the passing of her cousin, Malcolm, whose dream was to become a pastry chef. The name of the business is a tribute to her great-grandmother whom she never had the opportunity to meet but was an awesome baker of sweets in her own right.
Since the start of the business, Bria’s culinary creativity continues to soar. What started with cupcakes and simple cake designs has now flourished into beautifully decorated cakes of all kinds. Bria can take anyone’s vision and turn it into a specialized cake or cupcakes designed for the perfect occasion. From children’s themed birthday party pastries to lavish wedding cakes, the desserts are delicious and customized for any event.
Sweet as “Bea” Desserts was relaunched in January 2015 when Bria returned home after completing her bachelor’s degree in Fashion Merchandising with a minor in Marketing from Bowling Green University (Ohio). The business started with a request to make a cake for a friend and a post on Facebook and has flourished into something more. Bria still works a full-time job but considers baking to be her superpower. She loves seeing the vision of clients come to life.
Bria hopes to one day grow Sweet as “Bea” Desserts into a full-service bakery where she can serve her Cincinnati community. Sweet as “Bea” Desserts can be reached by Facebook, email, call, or text to order.
