Sweetly Baked, the city’s first small-batch CBD bakery, opened its virtual doors last September, offering Milwaukeeans the opportunity to order its line of gourmet treats (with or without CBD- or hemp-based additions) online for local pick-up at their commercial kitchen at 770 N. Jefferson St.

 

But fans will have a new way to access the bakery’s treats beginning this weekend when the Sweetly Baked mobile dessert bar makes its public debut at re:Craft & Relic Jan. 28-29 at the Milwaukee County Sports Complex, 6000 W. Ryan Rd. in Franklin.

 

“We saw such amazing support from the community during our first year in business,” says Amanda Buhrman, owner of Sweetly Baked. “After attending so many great local events in 2022, we wanted to find a way to elevate the shopping experience for consumers as well as bring a bit more of the brand’s personality into the community.”

 

Burhman says that, as she built out her new mobile food trailer, she expressly focused on patronizing other local businesses including  ESJ Designs,  Walters Sheet Metal,  Quick Finish Technologies and Brilliant DPI,

 

”During our first year in business it wasn’t just the community that supported us but the small business community did, too,” Burhman says. “So, we were thrilled to support them back and use as many local companies as possible when creating the mobile dessert bar,”

 

The mobile dessert bar, which will be available for both public and private events, will feature pre-made, single-serve desserts like macarons, cookies, brownies, mini cakes, and chocolates. During select events, the mobile operation will also offer CBD-infused bakery and chocolates as well as freshly made hot cocoa and coffee.
