Sweets on the Side

Hi there! My name is Lan McCabe, sugar cookie artist and then some to locals and beyond. I’m a self- taught baker, mother to two beautiful children and wife to one crazy Bostonian. I grew up baking in the kitchen and keeping my family and friends sweetly satisfied since I was a teenager growing up in Edmond, Oklahoma. I started baking for friends of friends of friends and families a few years ago while I was still working full time. Thus, the name Sweets on the “Side” was born. It wasn’t until baby number two was born that I decided to run with Sweets on the Side full time. And, I haven’t looked back!  I’ve delighted my family and friends with all my delicious and beautiful goodies and now I am so glad that I can bring them to you! No matter the occasion, we hope you’ll let us help make your dessert table a little extra special or provide your guests with the perfect favor!

Have a sweet day!

Lan McCabe

Our Clients Love Us

Just wanted to let you know. The cookies were the hit of the baby shower, everyone thought they were too gorgeous to eat but they did, they thought the gold on them was beautiful.

I plan on ordering some for a baby gender reveal party in September.

Merrily, Baby Shower

I’ve been a client of Sweets on the Side for 2.5yrs now. The cookies have always been a hit for our parties. Lan never ceases to amaze us in the creativity and talent she puts into every order. The cookies look too good to eat, but are every bit of tasty as they look! Highly recommend Sweets on the Side!
