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 thousands of cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and cake pops. In addition, I face painted for over 5 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 my model’s 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!

Silvie is absolutely amazing! From the cake & cookies all the way to the face painting work, she absolutely did a phenomenal job. My guests are still raving about how good the cake was. Their kids are refusing to wash their face paint off because Silvie’s work was so good. Even the adults got their face and hands painted. Silvie was amazing to work with and I’ll definitely hire her again for future events.

Details: 11 - 20 guests • 4 - 6 years old • Younger than 4 years old • 7 - 10 years old • Birthday party

It was an amazing experience working with Sylvie! She is extremely skilled (at baking and tattoo art) and was very friendly! Did I mention her great prices?! She's just awesome all-around! She made my daughter's 1st (Japanese-themed) birthday party special! I can't wait to work with her again!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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!

I cannot say enough about Silvie and how amazing her gift of art is. She brought smokes to every child she painted and every parent who watches their child have such beautiful art work placed on their faces. Silvie wasn’t just a face painter she truly provided detailed arts of work with colorful jewels to match. My 4 year olds party was such a huge success! Silvie painted every child that desired a face painting and she didn’t stop until she accomplished her goal abs even offered to refresh the birthday girl’s face since it was her special day! All I can say is I was approached by so many parents who said please give me her information! We will ABSOLUTELY use Silvie again!
