Welcome to Sweet & Savory Shanty!

Custom Cake Shop & More!
Sweet & Savory Shanty has been creating memories with families just like yours for over 28 years! We formally established our business in 2013 and opened our first storefront in July, of 2021. As our business has grown and evolved so has our passion for creating sweets your family and friends can gather around to celebrate some of life's most memorable moments. We take great pride in designing sweets that celebrate you and your loved ones! Jennifer is the founder and owner of Sweet & Savory Shanty. Jennifer understands the importance of literacy for our kiddos, as she is also an educator. She is equally as passionate about literacy as she is baking. Although she is no longer teaching reading, she still feels called to get books into the hands of readers. Bringing these two passions, baking and books, together is how the Cookie and a Book Subscription Box was created! Our hope for you and your loved ones is that you find as much joy in our boxes, as we find joy in carefully curating each and every thoughtfully themed box for your family!
Cookie and a Book Box  - A monthly reading subscription box for kids aged 0-12 years old.

This is a monthly subscription box. Carefully curated and designed specifically for your child and their learning stage. Each themed box will allow subscribers to select books based on their child's age. Each box is filled with 6 of our gourmet decorated sugar cookies, age appropriate books, one activity which also aligns with the theme, a fun food activity, and a link to educational resources so your child can keep the fun going! These resource links will include additional reading resources, videos, websites, and all kinds of themed learning activities.

Cookie Decorating Classes

I started Sugar Cookie Classes so I could share my passion for cookies and teaching with my friends right here in Lima, Ohio! I love teaching and learning with a new group of to-be-cookiers! With a Master's degree in education and 28 years of experience decorating - it's a NO brainer! :) If you are just a hobbyist, looking to start your own cookie biz, or you just want a night out with the girls - I am honored to share my skills and love for all things cookies with you! I can't wait to show you my tried and true methods with the students of Sweet & Savory Shanty's Cookie Classes!!

Group, Team, or Company Cookie Decorating Classes

This privately held class is for beginners. We walk you step by step through each process of the decorating. Our students are amazed at what they are able to do by the end of class! It's a great way to bond and have fun with your friends or co-workers. You can pick from a variety of cookie sets or if you have a specific theme for your event we can design a custom set for you (additional fees apply). You will learn a variety of techniques with royal icing. You will also be given a sugar cookie recipe and an icing recipe so that you can repeat what you have learned time and time again. All materials will be provided, including cookies, icing, sprinkles, and a box to take your edible piece of art home with you. Private classes are scheduled for groups of at least 10 participants. A non-refundable deposit of $100 is required to secure your date. The final headcount and full payment are due 14 days before the class date. Unfortunately, mother nature somehow knows when we make plans! If for some reason the class has to be canceled due to inclement weather, your payment will be transferred to another available date of your choosing. We require a minimum of 14 days lead time to schedule private classes. Refunds are not available within 14 days of the scheduled class.
