Sweet as âBeaâ Desserts is a Cincinnati Black-owned bakery located in Cincinnati, Ohio and owned by African American baker Bria Howard. Their mission is to provide customized and flavorful cakes and treats that brings forth the vision of each client.
About the Owner:
Bria Howard, Owner and CEO, was initially inspired to start the home based 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 in her own right.
Since the start of the business, Briaâs 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 anyoneâs vision and turn it into a specialized cake or cupcakes designed for the perfect occasion. From childrenâs themed birthday parties to lavish weddings, the desserts are delicious and customized for any event.
Sweet as âBeaâ Desserts was relaunched in January 2015 when Bria returned home after completing her Bachelors Degree in Fashion Merchandising with a minor in Marketing from Bowling Green University (Ohio). âIt started with a request to make a cake for a friend and a post on Facebookâ Bria states. âI still work a full-time job as a retail manager but baking is my superpower. I love seeing the vision of my clients come to life.â
Bria hopes to one day grow Sweet as âBeaâ Desserts into a full-service bakery where she can serve her Cincinnati community.
