Sweets & Stems is a boutique cake studio in Downtown Fuquay, North Carolina specializing in decadently delicious sweets with elegant, handcrafted designs.


Sweets & Stems, like most bakeries, was founded in an at home kitchen in 2010. The brand very quickly became synonymous with their founding treat, the Cake Pop! With mass interest all over the United States, owner Ann Flanagan decided to scale the business to match the current demand for the sinfully delicious sweet! 

In 2015 Ann teamed up with Christopher Batts who would go on to head up the Special Events & Catering portion of the rapidly growing business. From Inaugural Balls, VIP Functions, Celebrity Party's and many more functions; the business as a whole was BOOMING! 


From A-List celebs, to prestigious magazines like Vogue Italy, Food Network and many local Wedding & Events portfolios.... cake pop towers and dessert spreads were the talk of the town, and still are!   

Dessert's are the centerpieces of any special event, and Sweets & Stems stands out with clean designs, modern silhouettes, and a twist of playful and romantic charm. Always striving for a handcrafted look, with an eye for detail and well balanced composition, we love to create tables tailored to your event. When family and friends gather in celebration, they share food and traditions that bring them closer. They celebrate one another, new lives, new years, raise a glass, tell stories. And end with a little bite of sweetness to start the beginning of something new. 

We look forward to working with you. We want to make your celebrations unforgettable and create beautiful and tasty desserts, just for you.
