Local. Natural. Made from Scratch.

What’s in a Name

As you may have guessed,Sweet Matriarch, is named for some amazing women in my life. Whether its a creation of my own or from stained notebook pages of generations past; it is our hope that you not only taste the love but experience the tradition.  Being a southern girl I’ve learned everything is made better with a little pinch and a sweet dash.

Our Mission and Promise

Our gourmet baked goods are crafted using only the finest quality domestic and imported ingredients.  In fact, as a Kentucky Proud member we always start in our great state first. Partnering with some amazing Kentucky artisans to bring you the purest,freshest treats possible. That means no hydrogenated oils, prepackaged fondants, fillings, cookies or mixes. Every decadent treat that comes from our store is made by us from start to finish. The only exception is sprinkles and colorings but who doesn’t love a little color in their life!

Cake Design

Specializing in all things cake. From understated elegance for your wedding to simple layered desserts for an intimate gathering. Or a 3D sculpted birthday creation, let us design a custom cake for you.

Best Cupcakes

Our baked fresh daily cupcakes have been called the best in town, but we’ll let you be the judge!

I dreamt about the cake!

Someone brought in a cake from Sweet Matriarch for a co-worker’s retirement party.  It was so delicious I dreamt about the cake that night!  This is the best specialty cake I’ve ever eaten!  I’ve told my daughter to get all my cakes from Sweet Matriarch from now on!   Steve from Lexington, KY.

Best Cakes I Ever Had!

I am so glad I found Sweet Matriarch because they make the best cakes hands down. The cake flavor is wonderful and her buttercream icing is to die for. She is the only person we go to for our cakes. I highly recommend this place to anyone who loves good cake. The owner Tia is the best cake lady ever, and she is so wonderfully sweet to deal with. Do yourself a favor and try this place. You won’t be disappointed.
