Sweet Heather Anne

With my notorious sweet tooth, it took very little prodding for me to head over to Sweet Heather Anne, which has recently expanded into a new space at 920 North Main, just north of Depot. It even has a little parking lot at the back! They had an open house this past Saturday for the new store, and it's a beautiful space you should definitely check out. I had a delicious olive oil cake with lemon curd and vanilla frosting. I almost tried another slice but wanted to seem classy rather than gluttonous, so I refrained. It was tough, though.

While Sweet Heather Anne focuses on making cakes for special events like graduation parties, general parties, weddings, etc., they'll also have a dessert counter open two days a week (Fridays from 10 to 6, and Saturdays from 9 to 2) so you can try out their amazingly delicious options before committing to a giant tier of cake and frosting. Those who are ready to take the plunge can make an appointment for a design consultation.


  1. Wow. Sounds like I will need to stop by for a visit.

  2. This place is an Ann Arbor treasure. Saturday I picked up my order of vanilla french macaroons and decorated sugar cookies for a post-birth baby shower I was hosting, and I swear on everything holy, the french macaroons were more popular that the new baby being passed around. I should have picked up a few of her business cards, because people were talking about planning parties around these things. I also ordered a cake for my husbands graduation from U of M about 2 years ago, and she made an adorable robot cake.
