Go Sift! One of the best cupcake and dessert bar in the wine country. Sift takes home the gold on the wedding edition of the Food Network's Cupcake Wars with their winning raspberry cupcake with champagne frosting. The beautifully decorated cupcakes were displayed on wine barrels under a wooden chuppah (canopy) bringing the wine country ambiance to the busy television city of Los Angeles. The display is also available for rental for your special event.
My first encounter with Sift cupcakes was at the 2010 Sonoma Lavender Festival and I enjoyed their delicious sparkling lavender cupcakes. A few of my other favorite cupcakes include Ooh La La, Car Bomb, and The Sky is Falling. And who says cupcakes are girly? Their seasonal Stud Muffin is made of beer cake with caramel frosting sprinkled with spicy bacon and sea salt. Their cupcakes are so fluffy and moist with the perfect pairing of frosting that just makes you want to have another one. Or if you just can't get enough of frosting, they also offer them without the cake in miniature shot glasses.
Cupcakes are a fun, inexpensive, and creative way to display your wedding cake. You can also mix and match by keeping a traditional top tier cake for the bride and groom with a variety of custom designed cupcakes displayed on the rest of the tiers. Sift also designs 6 inch round, square shaped, or a big cupcake just for the bride and groom to share on their wedding day.
Sift Cupcakery & Dessert Bar is located in Santa Rosa, Cotati, and Napa. Keep a look out for their new location in Napa. They just moved from Napa Downtown to the Bel Air Plaza. I won't be surprised to find myself there with a Sift cupcake for an afternoon break with a sugar rush!
