Sprinkled Sweet, a bakery and artisan creamery located at 349 Pine St., has reopened on April 28 after being closed since March 13 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Aimee Hertwig, owner, said that so far they are starting with a limited menu and hours but will eventually be going to being open seven days a week.

Currently, the hours are Tuesday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday’s from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

For the time being, locals can stop by the walk-up window on Pine Street for their Sprinkled Sweet desserts or they can even order for delivery through Uber Eats.

During the closure, Hertwig and her staff were renovating and cleaning the bakery for when it will eventually be able to be open to the public.

She said that staff members came in and cleaned and even painted the bakery during this time to not only keep busy during the closure but to get the work done that the staff might not normally have time to get done.

Hertwig has also implemented increased cleaning measures to ensure the safety of both her staff and customers due to the pandemic including: employee masking, hand sanitizer available for use at counters and wiping down the surfaces between each customer interaction.

For those who don’t know about Sprinkled Sweet, Hertwig and her staff create and bake custom cakes, handcrafted hard ice cream, cookies, cupcakes, Italian cannolis, cheesecakes, cream puffs, macaroons and so much more.

“Everything that we offer is made right here (in the bakery),” she said. “Nothing comes in frozen or in a box.”

Sprinkled Sweet has a full menu of their handcrafted artisan hard serve ice cream that can come in a normal cone or even their specialty cones–waffle and salted pretzel.

In addition to typical dessert arrays, Sprinkled Sweet also sells treats that are gluten-free, sugar-free and keto alongside a couple of different flavors of bubble tea with boba, which Hertwig has seen a large interest in.

The bakery also does feature desserts and flavors that change every week.

Though Sprinkled Sweet could not be open to celebrate their five-year anniversary, Hetwig has seen positive support from the Williamsport community during her first week after reopening.

“It (business) has been wonderful,” Hetwig said. “The community has impressed me to say the least. I can’t thank everyone enough.”

Locals can visit the Sprinkled Sweet Facebook page where Hetwig is very active by posting the flavors of the week, photos of their treats, hours and any other updates.
