Founded in 2008 we are Justin & Maria, a husband and wife team that started in our home with one residential oven and one mixer. We both had full time jobs outside of baking. Our name was created, in part, by our niece who couldn’t pronounce the name Justin, so she called him “Uncle Tin”. When we opened our business Tin Man Sweets was chosen as the name for our bakery.
For over two years, we made cookie and brownie trays for special occasions. It wasn’t until late 2010 that we decided to add custom cakes, cupcakes, and cake pops.
The response to our new menu items was wonderful. In 2011 we increased the number of bridal shows we attended and our business began to expand even further.
In early 2012 we began looking for a vacant space to open a retail store. After searching for a several months, we settled on an available store in Evans City, Pennsylvania.
After a lot of cleaning, painting, sanding and equipment hunting, we opened our retail store in August 2012. Our menu expanded to include muffins, pies, breads and more.
In 2017, we moved into Spring Street Cafe and shared the space. With business growing, we decided to look for a larger space and we were set to open our Harmony Location on March 17, 2020. The day before our new opening, everything was shut down do to COVID. We held on until May and officially opened our doors, where we now serve our community.
From our humble beginnings in our home kitchen to our current store, we still have the same goal: to make baked goods that taste as good as they look. If you order cakes or cupcakes from us, we want you and your guests to say “Wow”! We haven’t changed the way we bake our products. We still make everything in small batches, one recipe at a time.
If you haven’t ordered from us, we invite you to come and see how we can complete your special day. We are thankful for the support that we have received and look forward to meeting your needs for many years to come. Stop in and let us introduce ourselves to you. We’d love to meet you!
