Encore Baking Company, formerly known as Sweet Encores, has been making unforgettable wedding and specialty cakes in St. Louis since 1989.
We custom blend our icing colors to match virtually any fabric swatch, invitation, or room décor. Our hand crafted sugar flowers are individually made with such attention to detail, they are often mistaken for real blossoms. Unlike other bakeries, our decorations are completely edible.
After many years working professionally in the pastry industry, Francie started her own buisness Sweet Encores, Inc. in 1989. She operated out of her own home so she would be able to stay home to raise her children. After three years of establishing a loyal customer base, she moved the business into a retail shop on Hampton Avenue in South St. Louis, and remained in business for almost twenty years. Francie and her business partner decided to close Sweet Encores in December 2007. Francie was encouraged to continue by many of her loyal customers, and because of her love of decorating and designing cakes she reopened in Maplewood as Encore Baking Company.
Francie continues perfecting her skills as an artist and cake designer. Her skill was not taught by textbooks, but instead, she received invaluable skills through apprenticeship under some of the best bakers and pastry chefs in St. Louis over the past 30 years.

We loved our wedding cake from Encore! Francie is just the sweetest person, and really cares about her clients. We met her for a tasting (on the recommendation of many friends), and had a great time discussing our vision for the cake. Her cake is delicious, and her artistry is amazing! The sugar flowers she creates are absolutely stunning. We wanted a bit of a non-traditional design, and Francie was happy to work with us to create the cake we were envisioning. We got so many compliments from our guests on both the taste and presentation of the cake. Our cake was included in our catering package from our venue (Saint Louis Zoo), so I’m not sure what the cost would be ordering separately. We paid a slight up-charge for the addition of the sugar flowers to our cake, and that was very reasonable. We can’t wait to order another cake from Encore in the future!Sent on 07/20/2018
