About The Next Sweet Thing
Customized cookies, cakes, and sweet creations perfect for every occasion! 
​        My name is Jennifer Valo, owner of The Next Sweet Thing Bakery in Sylvania, OH. Baking has always been a passion of mine, ever since I received my very first Easy-Bake-Oven as a child. I was always happy to make cakes for special occasions or simply to try something new. I worked at a local bakery until I graduated high school, then headed to Livonia, MI to study Culinary Arts at Schoolcraft College in 2007.
​        Throughout the years nothing kept me from making Christmas cookies every December for friends and family. Homemade chocolate covered Oreos were always some of my favorite to make! During Christmas of 2012, I came up with the idea to make a reindeer Oreo with pretzel antlers. Soon a whole cast of Christmas characters were playfully created out of different colors of chocolate with help from my mom, Luanne.
​       After a year of working from home, our dream was quickly starting to take shape and we bought what was formerly Syd’s Bakery. We opened on January 20 of 2014 and are now making MUCH more than chocolate covered Oreos. We now carry a wide variety of donuts, which are made by my dad, John. We also make custom cakes, cake pops, cupcakes and sugar cookies. Our goal is to ship our Oreos by mail-order across the country for any occasion with a unique and personal touch.  
​       We hope you will visit The Next Sweet Thing and let us share our joy of baking with you and your family!
