About

Renee Terry, Owner and Artist

I'm just a wife and mom who wanted to stay home with her baby boy while also providing for her family.  I am a completely self-taught confections artist and I am extremely passionate about what I do and what I create. Taking inspiration photos and creating them into edible art is what I do best and what I love.

     While on break from college, I found a summer job at a local specialty grocery store in the bakery department. Because of my artistic ability, I took it upon myself to try the different piping tips and see what they each did. From there I started trying my hand at decorating cakes. I watched multiple youtube videos to learn different techniques and eventually I grew and expanded my skills landing myself a job at a local custom cakery where I continued to learn and grow. 

      It was then that I married my husband and we had our baby boy. While on maternity leave, I made the scariest decision and quit my job to start Sweet Cheeks! I broadened my artistry and taught myself how to decorate custom cookies which has quickly grown to be my biggest and best sellers.

     When I'm not up to my elbows in sugar, I am being a mom to my 2 beautiful kids, going on family trips or playing softball.
