Make It A Sweetheart Summer

Yesterday I announced the start of Sweetheart Summer: a new program that allows you to enjoy different Sweetheart Vegan Bakery treats delivered to your door each week this summer.

In my video explaining how the program works, I mentioned that I’d follow up with a blog post explaining the inspiration for this program and some of the behind-the-scenes work that’s gone into it so far. It’s important to me to communicate with my customers and community and keep you in the loop on the development of this tiny business that YOU have helped build from the ground up over the last year.

See You At The Farmer's Market!

The Belmont Farmers’ Market kicked off its 2022 season last week!

The market takes place every Thursday from 2:00-6:30 pm, and I’m excited to be a vendor every other week (starting this Thursday, June 9)!

There are so many things I appreciate about my hometown’s farmers' market: beautiful produce, friendly staff and volunteers, unique and diverse vendors (check out this year’s vendor list), music and entertainment, and awesome food assistance programs like double SNAP benefits.

Family Fun At Belmont Town Day

Wait a second… wasn’t it JUST Town Day in the fall??

Yes, it was! But this year, Belmont Town Day is back to its usual MAY glory!

We’ll just chalk last year up to the COVID time warp…

Stop by Belmont Center this Saturday (May 21) for sunshine, family fun, and of course, hometown vegan baked deliciousness!

Graduation Season Is Here!

School’s almost out, and the 2022 grad season is HERE!

Whether your sibling’s finishing their fancy PhD, your neighbor’s kid is graduating preschool in one of those adorable tiny grad gowns, or your nephew is finally getting that high school equivalency, show them how proud you are with a personalized cookie set they’ll love or a Party Animal cake to delight the whole crew.

Bouquets for Mom

Sugar bouquets are back for Mother’s Day! Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Get your mama (or your favorite dog mom, fairy godmother, or grandmama) a colorful 8-piece mason jar cookie bouquet (even the mason jar is a cookie!) OR a set of 6 matching spring tulip cookies.

...C'mon, Spring!

Guess what? Sweetheart Vegan Bakery spring orders are now open!

I have a secret: I do NOT like plants. Specifically, the kind you keep in your house. I swear I love plants in other contexts…​I mean, I’m vegan! I enjoy eating them, baking with them, and even looking at them outside (where they belong). But I have absolutely no interest in keeping them in my house, caring for them, propagating them (a term I’ve been hearing a lot lately)…​none of that. I’ve been told by friends that this is the single most surprising/incongruous thing about my personality.

Time For A Heart-To-Heart…

After a brief post-holiday break to hibernate like a bear and deep clean my kitchen (OMG, the places I found chocolate…), I’m thrilled to announce that I’m now accepting Valentine’s Day orders!

The Heart Line Collection is a love letter your sweetheart can eat, whether they’re your grandma, your bestie, or your dog walker. There are options for the traditionalists, the Valentine’s Day haters, and those of us who are just trying to mend our broken hearts in 2022.

A Newsworthy December

What a way to end 2021! Last month I was honored to be featured in two local publications.

I made my TV ~debut~ in the Belmont Journal, decorating cookies shaped like sweaters while also WEARING a sweater (and, ya know, talking about the bakery).

Belmont Holiday Market

Join me and several of my neighbors on Sunday, December 12 from 12:00-4:00 pm for an outdoor holiday market organized by the Belmont Gallery of Art and Belmont Art Association. This event is one of those rare, serendipitous occasions that’s truly greater than the sum of its parts. Why?

Get your holiday shopping done! There will be vendors selling so many incredible handmade items. We’re talking jewelry, holiday cards, pottery, paintings, ornaments, textiles, drawings, hats, scarves, tea towels, books, and more. And of course, seasonal sweet treats from the Sweetheart Holiday Collection. Plus, no anxiety about whether or not your items will ship in time!
