Life is Sweet is a small (but rather amazing) baking company based in South Belfast, specialising in authentic American desserts such as cupcakes, layer cakes, whoopie pies, brownies and so much more…
We have a serious sweet tooth. And you know what? It’s nearly Christmas, so the month of December is our chance to justify our diet going out the window.
American ex-pat and Life is Sweet owner Sarah told us: “Our baked goods are made from scratch with choice ingredients using our own American recipes. Handcrafted Sweet desserts treat you to unbeatable tastes and textures.”
“We love creating as many elements for our desserts as possible, from cake and cookie batter to curds and caramels, jams and ice creams to marshmallow and mousses. We think you’ll enjoy eating them as much as we enjoying creating them.”

7 reasons why you need to visit Life is Sweet – as soon as possible…
1. The Seasonal Menus
There’s always something new and festive to try. Such as the delicious Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes topped with fresh churros from the Holiday Menu or Creme & Mini Egg Brownies.
2. The Sweet Brownies
S’mores Brownies aka Snickers Brownies.
No, seriously, though. Those brownies.
3. No Ordinary Wedding Cakes
The bursting flavours and unusual combinations offer something that little bit different.
Sarah added: “We bring the wacky, sweet & salty combos common in the US. Chunky Monkey, Chubby Hubby, Short Stack & Bacon Cupcakes. Think those fluffy buttermilk pancakes and bacon you have in American diners, but IN a cupcake!”
5. Original Products
Our favourites include the Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches, Fried Cake Donuts, and Marshmallow Bacon Pecan Caramel Bark!
6. The Fun & Creative Designs
“We live for unique decoration requests” says Sarah – and we believe her.
