Founded in 2000 by native Chicagoan Mary Winslow, this boutique Chicago bakery garnered fame for its amazing wedding cakes, but quickly broadened its appeal with whimsically named, outrageously good cookies, brownies, truffles and cakes-in-jars. Beloved by everyone from the editors of Food & Wine to Martha Stewart, their desserts are, as promised by the New York Times, “worth getting for yourself or as a gift.”

About The Treats

Cake Sweet Food Chicago uses top-tier ingredients, including Belgium chocolate, fresh cream and European style butter, and bakes in small batches, from scratch and by hand to ensure every sweet bite of their whimsically named but seriously delicious brownies, cookies, cakes-in-jars and truffles is better than the last. Preservatives are never used and cookies and brownies are individually packaged so they remain ultra fresh. Topping it off is stunning packaging that’s sure to delight anyone lucky enough to receive a gift from CSFC!

Meet The Owner

When owner Mary Winslow left her publishing sales job and started baking out of her kitchen, she never imagined she’d end up becoming one of Chicago’s top resources for spectacular sweets. But like a great cake, her rise was slow and deliberate with outstanding results; she began by subletting a small area in a catering kitchen, and soon found herself in a bigger kitchen with a bigger oven and a new line of pastries. Today, she continues to focus on top-quality baked goods with whimsical names and gorgeous packaging to the delight of fans everywhere.
