Excellence in Taste & Aesthetics 

It's my aim to create beautiful, custom-designed royal icing sugar cookies, cakes, desserts, and other sweets that have been made from scratch, using high quality ingredients. This means, that in your cakes, I use real butter in the frosting and real fruit in the fillings.  In your sugar cookies you will see flecks of vanilla bean and taste a slight almond flavor from almond extract.  So, not only will your desserts taste amazing but I will also work with you to make sure they look just how you want! Creating treats that are both delicious and beautiful are extremely important to me!  

We've worked with Sarah twice now, first for cookies to announce a pregnancy, and second, for our daughter's first birthday (smash cake & cupcakes).  Sarah is amazing!  She is so great to work with, creative, and a clear communicator.  We've been so pleased both with the appearance of her products AND the taste.  She will be our go-to forever!  Thanks, Sarah!

Sarah has created beautifully designed and absolutely delicious goodies for three different events for me over the past year (a baby shower, first birthday, and a 75th birthday).  Her custom cookies were amazing and a huge hit, her carrot cake was gorgeous and loved by all, but my favorite was the layered almond raspberry cake for my daughter's first birthday.  All so wonderful!  As an added bonus, Sarah is a delight to work with - quick to reply, kind, flexible, patient, and always meets me with a big smile at pick up.  Would most definitely recommend Sarah for any celebration!

We ordered cookies for our daughter's first birthday party and they were a hit!  Delicious, flavorful and beautiful.  Sarah was so great to work with and matched the photos we shared.  These were exactly what we were hoping for!
