I am wondering, firstly, how any of us just "innocently" look at our friend's phone.
babe can be a term of endearment, or a meaningless verbal tic, depending on how its used and who uses it. But choosing to buy Expensive exclusive fancy cakes for anyone is not a routine business practice ( nobody's ever done that for me, in business ! ) ; it's not something you'd readily do for someone with any ordinary position in your life ( how many has he bought for you lately ? ) and if it was innocent, why would he hesitate to tell you ?
When you mention "other reps", though, I don't know what is going on. If they are all one or other form of rep within a company or business area, some do have a silly and over-expensive company practise of buying expensive treats for each other, making far too much fuss over birthdays, and trying to pretend that drinking sessions have something to do with business.
Some companies prefer girl reps, believing them to be more able to wheedle men into ordering stuff that isn't really needed.
Switching off his phone and deleting message on it could indeed be suspicious behaviour, or perhaps just a concern that you might be over-upset by ambiguous messages.
Why not consider seeing a couples counsellor together, to see if this is something that could or should be ironed out ?
