And just like that, Sugar & Sparrow is TWO years old! It feels so young and so old at the same time. This past year was all about growing in my recipe writing, getting better at food photography, and creating a steady stream of fun cake tutorials and videos. I learned a whole lot, but there’s so much more room to grow for year three and I’ve got some big ideas. Thanks for sticking with me and following along every step of the way!Read More
A few weeks ago, I got a big package in the mail with the word COOKIES stamped on the side in huge, bold letters (imagine the intrigue of all the postal workers). I’d been looking forward to this particular package from Goodie Girl Cookies, mostly because I’m in love with their branding and I was dying to know if their gluten-free cookies were as tasty as they look. Inside the box were the cutest packages of cookies with flavors like Birthday Cake, Fudge Striped, Mint Cookies, and Chocolate Creme (to name only a few), and I wasted no time popping them open to taste. I can honestly say they are hands-down the best gluten-free cookies I’ve ever had. Like, can’t stop eating delicious. It was the best mail day I’ve had in a long time.Read More
A few weeks ago, Amalfi Dècor sent me two of their gorgeous cake stands and I have been so in love with them. They’ve got a whole collection of beautiful dessert stands that range from modern to elegant, and the good news for you is that I’ve partnered with them for an Instagram giveaway! Now is your chance to win a dessert stand of your choice from the Amalfi Dècor collection, and I just know your cakes and bakes are going to look so fabulous sitting on top of any of these beauties.
In all my years of caking, Americolor has been my favorite when it comes to food color gels. They make them in just about every color you can think of, and are constantly rolling out new additions to their soft gel paste offering. Whenever I’ve needed a super specific color and don’t want to spend a bunch of time custom mixing a shade of buttercream, I’d scroll through Americolor’s shop and order the perfect hue. And the soft gel pastes help color more than just buttercream – you can use them to tint fondant, royal icing, macarons, cookie dough, cake batter, gum paste, and so much more!
