Winter Garden sweet fiends have a new place to quench their appetites. Sweet Dee’s Cupcakery and Custom Cakes opened in downtown on Main Street on November 9th.

Sweet Dee’s offers a wide variety of baked goods, from cookies to brownies, to cheesecakes and everything in between. As the same would suggest, they are also well-known for their cupcakes and their custom cupcake bar.
At the cupcake bar, you can make a unique creation, with different flavors, fillings, toppings and drizzles to choose from. Kids also love adding the edible glitter, which adds a fun flair to any cupcake combination.
Those looking to watch their diets can also find an assortment of gluten-free and vegan choices, while keto, dairy-free and sugar-free options are available by request. They even have sweet treats for your favorite four-legged friend.
Shop owner and executive baker Diandra Culver is an Orlando native who now lives in Ocoee. She learned the art of baking in the kitchen of a next-door neighbor growing up.
Prior to opening Swee Dee’s, Culver always treated baking as more of a hobby. While she never went to culinary school, she did attend The Wilton School in Illinois to learn more about cake decorating from their masters course, which covered things like┬ábaking, piping, fondant, sugar work, gum paste and gluten-free baking.
Culver’s original career path after graduating from the University of Mississippi after graduating with a degree in parks and recreation management involved working in pro sports. She returned to the Central Florida region after that to work as a children’s activities and special events coordinator at Walt Disney World.
During the seven years at Disney, Culver was a part-time staffer at a bakery in Clermont. The passion for baking she developed there convinced her that she wanted to be a full-time business owner in the field.
