Debbie Cooper

Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4

To Debbie, family is everything. She has been happily married to her husband, Chuck, for 30+ years. She has 3 children - Tyler (31) and wife Christy, Kirsten (30) and husband Erik Ringwald, and Rachel (24) and husband Jackson Cromer.  Debbie is a small group leader to teen girls at her church.  

For 14 years, she faithfully served the city of Charlotte as a nurse for an orthopedic hand surgeon, but has recently retired to do what she is most passionate about - baking!

Her favorite colors are black and white; and her favorite vacation spots are Charleston, SC and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The Coopers

The Cooper family is originally from a small farming town in central Illinois. That was their home for years - that is, until they took a vacation in 1999 to Charlotte, NC. They fell in love with the community, the opportunities the city offered, and the warmer weather, and they decided to put down new roots. For 19 years, they have lived in south Charlotte.

Today, Chuck is the Managing Member of White Water Consulting and works part-time for Full HR. Both businesses are based in Charlotte.

Tyler and Christy blessed us with two Grandsons, Elliot Quinn and Coen Shepherd.  Tyler is a Pastor on staff at Spotswood Baptist Church in Fredericksburg, VA and Christy is the owner and treating therapist at Kaleidoscope O.T.

Kirsten and Erik live in Monroe, NC.  Kirsten is working part-time in our Bakery and blessed us with our first Grand-daughter:  Juliana Sage and a sweet baby boy: Simon Graham. Erik is employed as an Engineer in Stallings, NC as well as serving as our family's fix-it man.  

Rachel and Jackson live in Waxhaw, NC.  Rachel works at Movement Mortgage in Ballantyne. and Jackson is employed by The Bond Exchange in Charlotte, NC.  Harrison Douglas and Hadley Drew are their sweet additions.  


Our sweet Grands: Elliot, Coen, Juliana, Harrison, Hadley.

Our newest little bit of sweetness: Simon Graham.

About the Bakery

The Cooper family has always loved baking sweets together - sometimes for friends, sometimes for family, sometimes for no reason at all! So many of our family's memories, in fact, are of time spent together in the kitchen.  Sweet Boutique Bakery was launched on September 4, 2013 so that we could continue making these memories by baking delicious sweets and to allow YOU to experience the sweet satisfaction of eating them!

Our commitment to you, the customer, is to provide delicious, fresh, made to order products, using only premium ingredients!  We use local and organic when possible.

PLEASE NOTE: The Sweet Boutique Bakery is a virtual business run out of the Cooper home.
We do not - at this point - have a storefront.

Hi Debbie-
Thank you for the beautiful cake. Everyone at the baby shower raved about how pretty it was and said it was absolutely delicious! No one could tell that it was gluten-free. I’m so grateful for your helpfulness, especially on such short notice.
Again, thank you so much... wishing I had another slice now 😉
— Kim Allen--January 2018
Debbie, I cannot tell you how much your cakes were bragged on this weekend. I have baby Colin, the duck, and the frog in my fridge because I cannot bring myself to throw them out. The cakes were delicious too! You did such amazing work so thank you thank you!!! I will definitely be reaching out again!
Many thanks
— Catherine Matthews--January 2018
Everybody fell in love with the (Fresh Strawberry) cake. I knew it was going to be great but even my youngest, Tiffany, who doesn’t normally like cake (just the icing), went crazy over it and wanted some to take home. Lori was up at 1 am just to get another piece!! It is sooooo good.
— Bill Duncan--January 2018
Hi Debbie!
I wanted to thank you for the beautiful, delicious and safe cake you made for our daughter. We were blown away by the presentation from the cake itself down to the sweet little stand and ribbon and the box with the big beautiful purple bow. Rena was a perfect little lady eating her cake one small pinch at a time haha! She was mesmerized and loved it! We also thoroughly enjoyed eating the leftovers for the following two days. I’ve never had an eggless cake before but if they’re all this good, I’m a convert!
We cannot thank you enough and will absolutely be contacting you for additional treats in the future!
Thanks again!
— Will and Allyson Howard --November 2017
Enjoyed is an understatement!! Every last piece was gone! And my parents are still talking about how good it was!
— Brittany Bagnato--October 2017
This was such an incredible, creative cake! The water was beautiful and I especially loved the cattails. Thank you for having the artistic talent to envision and create what the rest of us cannot! Our guest of honor was ecstatic!
— Julie Patton Evans--August 2017
Hi Debbie!
What an amazing job!!!! The most stunning cake I’ve ever seen!!! Can’t wait to eat it tomorrow but so sad to cut it!!!!

Good Morning Debbie!
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the wonderful birthday cake. It was a hit!
Everyone said it was delicious and had more than one piece…including me. I gave your contact information to a few people that wanted to know what the cake came from, hope you don’t mind.
thank you.

Hi Debbie,
I just wanted to let you know how FANTASTIC the vegan cake was that you made!! We were thrilled - even anti-vegans :) couldn’t tell and were so surprised as they asked for a 2nd piece!
Thank you for helping make such a special occasion a bit sweeter!!
Take care,
— Sarah Warren--May 2017
Debbie!! We LOVE the birthday cake - it is truly spectacular! Oh my gosh, so very pretty and we cannot wait to eat it. I think this is one of the prettiest cake you have made of the many yummy cakes you have made for us! Pictures do not even begin to show how beautiful and delicious this cake was in person!

Thank you for being amazing!!

Thank you so much for baking our wedding cake. It was by far the best cake I’ve ever eaten and was a big hit with everyone! The cake and icing were both absolutely delicious and the way you arranged the flowers was beautiful. We are saving a piece to eat in a year to celebrate and we will think of you.
— Mary Dominick -- October 2015
Thank you again for everything, the cake was AMAZING and it looked perfect!!! Everyone enjoyed it and Whitney and I absolutely loved it!

— Scott Lanford
Debbie, thank you so much for the beautiful cupcakes!!! The colors perfectly complemented our theme. Your expert advice for storage was spot on! They turned out “super yummy” and put big smiles on the faces of both the kids and adults. I felt even better knowing that you baked them with all natural ingredients.
You’re an awesome pastry artist with amazing talent!
— Tammy Pereira-Gibbs
Hey Debbie-
Thank you so much for sending me the bread. It is fantastic and by far the best paleo bread I have tasted. It stayed fresh even through travel to CA, but should probably be eaten by the end of today...which will be no problem. :)
I am 110% satisfied!
— Zana Devitto, Perris, CA
Just wanted to write and let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed the cake for the party! I loved your special touches…from the ribbon around the board below the cake, to the pretty bow on top, it all looked so nice! The cake itself was absolutely gorgeous…you have a wonderful eye for simple beauty.

Even better than how it looked, was how it tasted! It was so moist and delicious—everyone LOVED it! It was perfect, and just what we were hoping for. I was so delighted that you took the food allergy thing so seriously . I loved that we didn’t have to worry about it causing allergic reactions.

Thank you, again, so much! I will pass your name along to others, for sure!

Kristen Moyer reviewed Sweet Boutique Bakery — 5 star  January 18, 2016 · 

We requested a vegan cowboy/Wild West themed cake for my son's 5th birthday party, and Debbie went above and beyond. The cake was so adorable with all of the extra touches she added, and it was one of the best tasting cakes we have ever had. She is wonderful and we will certainly be ordering for her again. Very highly recommended!

Erin Vinson reviewed Sweet Boutique Bakery — 5 star July 27, 2015 · 

Debbie is so wonderful to work with. She responded to my emails so quickly, and was very detail oriented with my needs for a specially made cake for my daughter's 1st birthday. The availability of ingredients and ability to cater to special dietary needs is something she is seamless with. Our girl loved her cake (and cupcake that followed later in the day), and our guests raved about how delicious her cupcakes were. We definitely will be repeat customers for a long time!

Melissa Wilson Karp reviewed Sweet Boutique Bakery — 5 star April 26, 2016 · 

The best chocolate cake EVER - and it was gluten free! Moist, great flavor, and looked beautiful.

Amber King -- 5 out of 5 -- "Debbie made two amazing vegan cakes for my birthday! Both were delicious and impressed everyone that they were in-fact, vegan."

Tyler Cooper -- 5 out of 5 -- "My mom is good at a lot of things. But my mom is GREAT at baking. And if anyone is qualified to say that...it's me. I've been enjoying her work for 26+ years!"

 Celia Jimenez -- 5 out of 5 -- "Debbie Cooper is the most exceptional baker I know...every cookie is soft and chewy...every cake is moist...every cheesecake has the perfect delicate crust with the most exquisite filling...every bar has the perfect proportion of crumbly crust to fruit...and every parfait is scrumptious to the very last bite! Her passion and love for baking is deliciously transferred to every single thing she makes!"

Kirsten Cooper -- 5 out of 5 -- "At the Cooper house, no dinner is served without dessert and no dessert is less than exceptional. My mom has been famous for her baking for as long as I can remember. People are always showing up at our house specifically to get snacks. They follow us home from school, church, homeless shelters, wherever. She's the best. Everyone knows it."

Jackie Ledwein -- 5 out of 5 -- "Thank You Sweet Boutique for the delicious cookie cake for my son's 14th birthday! Everyone loved it! And thank you Debbie for accommodating my schedule. We will definitely use you again!!"
