Out of tribulations often come triumphs, and this was exactly the case for Andrea. She was a bride preparing to say “I do” in Sonoma and was searching far and wide for unique, creative and delicious cupcakes. She was looking for custom cupcakes for her wedding and found a serious gap in the market. Combining her entrepreneurial spirit with her love of cupcakes, Andrea soon opened her own cupcake bakery – Sift.

Founded in 2008, Sift was the first bakery of its kind and now serves all of the Bay Area and Wine Country. They also won the show Cupcake Wars on Food Network, proving they've got some serious skill and creativity!

What’s unique here is that Sift’s designers will work with you from the beginning to create custom cupcakes for your wedding. According to their web site, “Sift Weddings creates custom designs and flavors for your theme or color scheme. We love being a part of the design process from beginning to end, helping you navigate every detail along the way.”

Once you see Sift’s cupcake flavors, you might quickly realize that creating a flavor of your own is completely unnecessary. Some of their more unique flavors include Pink Champagne (raspberry & Champagne), Car Bomb (chocolate, Lagunitas Imperial Stout & Irish Crème), The Samoa (coconut, caramel & chocolate) and has even ventured into wine-infused cupcakes – perfect for a Wine Country destination wedding!

Since its founding, Sift has spread to include multiple locations and desserts beyond just the common cupcake. They also make Cupcake Chocolates, Frosting Shots, Whoopie Cookies, Ice Cream Sammys, Profiteroles and French Macarons. No matter what you’re wanting on W-day to satisfy your guests’ sweet tooths, Sift has something for you. If you can’t find exactly what you want, then simply work with them to create your dream decadent dessert!
