The Sweet Tooth is a specialty bakery based in Blue Springs that makes a delicious variety of gourmet cupcakes and was founded by Trevor and Amy Goodwin in 2010. Co-Owner and Baker Amy Goodwin has always had a passion for baking and makes all deserts from scratch using the finest ingredients available.
I just have to tell you I was so excited to find The Sweet Tooth Bakery. I have been writing this blog for a year now and have found that Kansas City is full of cupcake shops, bakeries, and even a mobile cupcake truck, which is great! What I love about The Sweet Tooth is it is in my neck of the woods and their cupcakes are yummy too!
The Sweet Tooth features a line-up that includes 12 regular cupcake flavors and several seasonal cupcake flavors throughout the year. When owner Trevor Goodwin asked if I would like to sample their new spring flavors, I of course was happy to oblige.
I was expecting a little box maybe filled with three or four different cupcakes, but to my surprise, a box of one dozen breathtaking beautiful cupcakes arrived, hand delivered by Trevor himself. It was such a pleasure getting to meet Trevor, as I have said before I really enjoy meeting the business owners. I just love the way their eyes light up when they talk about their business.
Now, back to those cupcakes and the new spring flavors. With a dozen to eat up and only four of us, I called my sister and her family over to try them out with us.
The first cupcake we tried was the Jamaican Sensation. This cupcake gets it flavor from pure mango puree and is topped with a pomegranate cream cheese frosting. This was my first mango cupcake and it will definitely not be my last. The mango puree makes this cupcake moist and the pomegranate cream cheese frosting is unique and delicious. It is also The Sweet Tooth’s first vegan cupcake. My daughter and niece both voted it their favorite.
Next up was the Chocolate-Cherry that is topped with a cream cheese cherry frosting. The inside of this cupcake holds a sweet surprise, which is a chocolate and cherry filling baked right in. If you are a chocolate covered cherry fan, this cupcake will have your name written all over it! I liked it but do have to admit I am a chocolate peanut butter fan and am really looking forward to trying their Peanut Butter Dream cupcake.
The last flavor was the Raspberry Lemonade. This cupcake is made with real raspberries and lemons and topped with a lemon cream cheese frosting. All cupcakes at The Sweet Tooth are made with natural ingredients so there was nothing artificial about this cupcake. My sister and I are big lemon fans and have to say this one was our favorite.
All of these cupcakes were great and all very different. I am looking forward to trying more of their flavors. They just won a cupcake contest and you can read more about that here. They are also holding a contest on their facebook page to name the new spring flavors.
The Sweet Tooth Bakery is busy getting ready to open a retail location later this year and will offer cupcakes, cookies, and gelato made with ingredients from a local dairy. In the mean time, their cupcakes are available for order and they can deliver anywhere in the Kansas City Metro area. Visit The Sweet Tooth’s website for information on flavors, ordering and delivery.
The Sweet Tooth’s mission is to “Promote Happiness” and I have to say those cupcakes certainly put a smile on all our faces.
