Spring is here!!

Sweet Crimes bakery is on a mission to bring you delicious baked goods just like you remember them. Moist and delicious, our cakes have gained recognition in the DMV, and our donuts were awarded the Best Gluten Free Sweet in 2018 and 2019 in DC (2020 is still TBD)! The “special sauce” is our proprietary flour blend, which is a one-to-one substitute for all-purpose flour for cookies, cakes, pancakes, brownies, and any other sweet baked product. Our bread products are also not to be missed. If you're not sure, try our bread basket to sample our bakers' handiwork.

Our Story

Catherine (Keri) Lijinsky, founder of Sweet Crimes, grew up in Maryland and has been a “creative” baker ever since she was a kid. Her parents are world travelers and she lived overseas in many different places, including Japan as a child, and England, Switzerland, and the Philippines where she worked in public health and global development. When she discovered that she was gluten intolerant, she became aware of how difficult it was to find a baked good that she could eat and truly enjoy. Her humanitarian spirit led her to continue to help people as a professional baker, because no one should have to compromise when it comes to delicious food. Keri moved back to D.C. in 2013 and first began experimenting with gluten free baking when she made her mother’s wedding cake in 2014. The cake was such a hit that she continued to pour love into her recipes until she perfected the chemistry of baking with gluten free flour. Sweet Crimes is thrilled to announce the opening of a bakery and storefront in Capitol Hill in early 2021!
