Created by Pastry Chef Gretchen Fantini, Sweet Box Bakeshop started as a gourmet mobile food truck selling premium ingredient cupcakes around Philly.

Gretchen and her team bake and prepare all the desserts from scratch including cakes, cupcakes, pies, brownies, cookies, trifles, puddings, and tarts.

If you’re looking for a unique dessert option at your wedding, you can hire the Sweet Box Cupcakes & Dessert Truck to serve your guests delicious treats in delectable flavors!
