Happy 4th of July!!!

Happy 4th of July Everyone!

It took a little while, but it finally feels like summer in Summit County, which is amazing. After not having a summer for a decade, I am very ready for the sunshine and long days that come with this wonderful season. The snow two weekends ago, was not helping. But here we are, we made it and it is time to celebrate!

Wedding season is here and I have a few beautiful cakes on the way, you are just going to have to wait to see them. I absolutely love the symbolism of a wedding cake. There are so many hot new trends out there right now, cakes are more gorgeous than ever. Wedding cakes don’t just have to be plain vanilla either, embrace the summer season with fresh fruit flavors, ice cream inspired themes, or a light fluffy vanilla bean to keep it traditional.

Summer is a time to celebrate, so don’t forget about birthdays! There are no rules when it comes to birthday cakes or cupcakes, so embrace the playfulness that it allows and go out of the box! Do you have a tiny one turning 1? A fun smash cake might be right up your alley. Unicorn or dinosaur cupcakes are bound to make a little kid jump for joy. A melted ice cream cone cake can melt an older kid’s heart. And adults can make it classy or bring out their inner child, with something old school or new and trendy, the sky is the limit.

Warm weather brings big news. Baby and wedding showers, gender reveal parties, engagements, are all reasons to get together and eat cake! Whatever the occasion, big or small, we can create the perfect cake, cupcakes, or other sweet treat to make your day as special and unique as possible.

And if your just out strolling around Breckenridge on a Sunday, swing by the Breckenridge Sunday Market and check out our tent! We have lots of delicious goodies individually packaged and ready to take with you. Sprinkle cookies and unicorn cupcakes are always regulars. Plus we have a variety of other cookies, bars, cupcakes, and breakfast treats to get your day going or give you a little sugar kick.

Enjoy the warm weather and don’t forget to check us out on Facebook and Instagram for more photos, ideas, and specials!

Welcome to Sweet As… Baked Goods!

Hi everyone and welcome to the newly launched Sweet As… Baked Goods site and blog. I’m so excited to have you here with us and to share with you my passion for baking and decorating.

Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Jenni and I’ve had the pleasure of being a Summit County resident for the last 8 years. I moved here after growing up in western Massachusetts and spending my college years and a few after in northern Vermont. I love skiing and teaching skiing and have spent the last nine summers in Australia teaching skiing. Now, I’m getting to enjoy summer for the first time in a long time and want to share my other passion of baking with those around me.

Growing up, baking had always been a part of every celebration, regardless of how big or small. Hundreds of Christmas cookies filled my grandmother’s kitchen, and no special dinner was complete without dessert. Over the past few years, I’ve started sharing this culture of celebrating through food with my friends; making birthday cakes, cupcakes, Christmas cookies, delicious treats just for fun, and my own wedding cakes.

After lots of encouragement and some private orders, I’ve made the commitment to taking my hobby into a business and onto the open market. Hopefully you like what you see, and are interested in trying something out. I love being creative, testing my skills, and trying new techniques and flavors to push the limits so if there is something you are interested in and don’t see, please reach out.

My services are available for custom orders of cakes, cupcakes, brownies and bars, cookies, or anything else you can come up with. I hope you keep my desserts and treats in mind the next time you have a birthday party, wedding, shower, picnic, or any other occasion that can be enhanced with fun dessert treats. I will also be at the Breckenridge Sunday Markets at Main Street Station starting Sunday, June 16th, 2019. Please swing by and try some deliciousness and we can chat about what you would like!

Feel free to check back here frequently to see updates of what I’ve been working on. You can also follow me on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/SweetAsBakedGoods/) or Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/sweet_as_baked_goods/).

Thank you for swinging by and hopefully you get to eat some treats soon!
Jenni
