Introduction: Good Day! I’m Silvie, currently transitioning out of Army service of 22 years as a medical logistics officer. I have been doing creative arts for years, and my side business is making creative custom cakes @Silviesweets (IG and FB). Many forms of art are among my talents. I have done hundreds of cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and cake pops. In addition, I face painted for over 4 years doing parties and corporate events usually 4 hrs each and birthday parties (2 hrs each). I’ve created balloon arches and designs for parties, retirements, and corporate events. We make some pretty sweet parties and sweet events! What makes me unique? I come from many years of military service to our country, and I have access to all military bases. I am familiar with many installations locally and worldwide. I can help design and make your event special with utmost attention to detail. My background is in Pathobiology, oversight, and program management for the DoD Office of the Inspector General, so I practice safe, honest, and sanitary methods. I have two kids of my own, and know children well. I do this because I have fun making your face light up when my work celebrates you. I find joy in making magical memories because I have seen and experienced that life is short. You live on this planet once, and thus we must cherish those moments that make it special. When it comes to art, that brings me joy! The most rewarding thing is to see that smile when you create a masterpiece that exceeds your expectation. Let’s have a great party!

I appreciate Silvie's Sweets so much. I asked for a custom made cake for a special dinner at the "eleventh hour" after several bakers turned me away. She not only made a beautiful cake that exceeded my expectations, but it tasted delicious! I recommend this business and will call on them again. I can't stop showing people the pictures!

Silvie was fabulous. She had the best artwork and the kids were in awe of their designs and their paint job. A few of the adults even par took in the painting. She did not disappoint i the least. She was really beyond 5 stars. I highly recommend her work and her company.

Silvie did an amazing job with the face painting and balloon arch for my sons 7th B-Day party! She was extremely friendly, talented and painted many faces in the 2 hour time frame. 10/10 would recommend!

FAQs

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I volunteered at office functions and birthday parties, and several parents have asked me to face paint for local and family events. I do not do this for a living. I just enjoy painting kids faces and seeing their face light up when they see the transformation!

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Children mainly, but I do have the occasional adult who wants something extreme.

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    I did my entire family’s Coco inspired dia de Los muertos face painting (featured on my cover page), and that took about 40 min.
