Sweet Summertime

Posted on June 17, 2016 by Jordan Keith | 0 Comments

Summer time is here! Well almost... the official start of Summer is Monday, June 20th! This recent heat, sure has us ready to pull out the SPF, beach balls, and towels. Around here, Summertime represents so many of our favorite things! 
Weddings, backyard bbqs, summer-inspired desserts, champagne, pool-side cocktails, and of course, celebrations galore!
Here are a few of our favorite summer desserts
They are literally everything! Have you tried our new flavors?
Pink Champagne Cupcake Poolside - because what more could you want?! 
Ice Cream Sammies - mix + match your cookies with your choice of ice cream. Perfect treat to beat the summer heat.

How can you resist the classic scoop of ice cream on a sugar cone? I know we can't. 
Summer wouldn't be the same without the essentials. Enjoy our top 5 picks from the "30 OMG-Worthy Beach Day Essentials under $100" courtesy of Brit + Co. {also one of our FAVES, all year-round} 
1. Urban Outfitters Pizza Slice Pool Float ($48): Second to dessert, pizza is a MUST. How can you not enjoy a day at the beach with this delicious float! 
2. Urban Outfitters Pineapple to-Go Sipper Cup ($8): We LOVE pineapples! Ask our #1 #GirlBoss, Andrea - pineapples are life.
Enjoy a Pina Colada or hydrate with a fruit infused water to beat the heat. 
3. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Palm Camera Case ($24): If you remember our wall at the Corporate Office, you will also remember that we love banana leaves too! This camera case is the perfect carry-all for memory-making. 
4.  Ban.do Vacation Beach Towel ($38): Everyone could use a vacation and this towel SCREAMS it! Toss it in the beach bag and hit the sand, champagne in hand. 
5. Anthropologie Playdate Necklace ($12): We love this playful Watermelon Necklace from Anthropologie {another one of our faves}. 
Life is short, eat dessert first, and take a bite out of Summer! 
We would love to know your summer favorites. Share them with us!

Sift's Wild Night on the Serengeti!

Posted on May 12, 2015 by Jordan Keith | 0 Comments

Sift Dessert Bar is more than just cupcakes, frosting, and sprinkles. Most of our customers know this, and have indulged in our various delectable treats, including French Macarons, Ice Cream Sammies, Cakes, Mini Pies, and more! Unfortunately, much of the public still thinks of us as "just cupcakes." Our goal was to break down this barrier by throwing our own industry event and getting in front of the top Wedding + Event Professionals in Wine Country.
 We were lucky enough to partner with some of the best vendors to make this event possible. Thank you so much to our incredible sponsors, Safari West, Hall Wines, Encore Events Rentals, Schramsberg, Lagunitas, DreamMaker Designs, Rustic Love: Home Decor & Event Rental, Bella Vita Event Productions & Favor Custom Gifts! We couldn't have done it without your help and contributions! 
The evening was broken down into 3 parts. First, the meet + greet. All guests were welcomed by staff at Safari West's Welcome Hut and sent over to "Flamingo Landing" with views of Giraffes and Pink Flamingos complete with Shcramsberg Sparkling, Hall Wines, and delicious cheese + charcuterie plates. The second part of the evening was our formal tasting including pairings of Hall Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc paired with a Limonatta Cake Shot, Hall 2012 Eighteen Seventy-Three Cabernet Sauvignon paired with our Salted Caramel French Macaron, Schramsberg 2011 Crémant Demi Sec paired with a mini salted caramel apple pie, and Lagunitas Hairy Eyeball Ale paired with our mini Stud Muffin
Our final portion of the evening was a crowd favorite, the incredible styled dessert bars. We offered 3 dessert bars styled by our amazing Wedding + Events Team, Stephanie Crocker + Leyla Hobbs! We showcased a Rustic Pie Bar, Vintage Dessert Bar, and Modern Cake Bar. 
Thank you Rustic Love: Home Decor & Event Rentals for the incredible display pieces & Bella Vita Event Productions for the florals! 
Thank you Rustic Love: Home Decor + Event Rentals for the gorgeous glass door + display pieces! 
Vintage Cake Bar complete with Sift Dessert Bar's custom cakes + Encore Events Rentals gorgeous display tables.
 
Thank you to everyone who attended + all of our amazing sponsors!
