For years, Lisa Ebbert’s family and friends told her she was “on to something.” Having cultivated her daughters, Kristen and Lauren, in the kitchen from a young age, they naturally accompanied her in launching their family-owned bakery business, 3 Sweet Girls Cakery.
Today, their two Cincinnati-area locations provide cupcakes, cookies and other treats for brides, birthdays, and other sweet occasions. But there’s more to this bakery business than cute cupcakes and sprinkles. Creativity, passion and family are the main ingredients to their success.
