It’s been a great year, Sugarfans!

As we wrap up another great year, we’ve decided to take a quick look back at some of our favorite happenings in 2014.  In case you missed out, here’s what we’ve been up to (Besides, of course, making thousands of cakes, cupcakes, and fresh pastries!):

Sugarland 2014

We were nominated for 7 awards in the Indy Best of the Triangle– Best Bakery, Best Cupcake, Best Desserts, Best Frozen Desserts, Best Pie, and Best Place for a Blind Date in both Orange/Chatham and Wake counties. That was all thanks to you, our sugar fans, sharing all the Sugarland love!

We also won The Knot “Best of Weddings” Award for 2015! Once again, we’ve had the privilege of working with the most wonderful couples in the Triangle and are so grateful for all the kind words you shared about your experiences with us!

Through our Charity of the Month program and donations, we’ve given more than $3000 to several wonderful local charities this year.  We’ve gotten to work with the Duke Lemur Center, the Carolina Tiger Rescue, The Boys and Girls Club, the Movember Foundation, Kidzu Children’s Museum in Chapel Hill, and so many small and large groups to make 2014 a little sweeter!

We hosted our first ever March Madness- Great Cake Off! Starting with 64 cakes on our Pinterest board, and over 100 participants, you all pinned and liked until we had narrowed it down to one winning cake!

There have been so many other funs times this year and great moments that we’re grateful to have gotten to share with you!  We can’t wait to see what 2015 holds for us and all our lovely Sugarfans!

What was your most memorable moment this year?


The Angel Tree is Back!

Angel Tree at SugarlandCan’t get enough holiday shopping? Pick up an extra present for a sweet boy or girl on our Angel Tree!

You, our Sugar Fans, blow us away every year with your generosity and we’re proud to say that we have managed to collect gifts for every child for the past two years!  Help us carry on the tradition and come pick out a tag, or several, and bring a little Christmas joy to a few more families this year!

Here’s how it works: Come in to Sugarland in Cameron Village and choose a tag on the angel tree. The tag will have one child’s information and what they want this year for Christmas. Then go out and get your gift! Bring it back to Sugarland by December 18th, unwrapped and with the receipt. We’ll check your tag back in, and reward you for your good deed with a four pack of cupcakes on us!

We know there’s no reward quite like knowing you’ve made a difference in a child’s life. But we also think you deserve some cupcakes! So why not get the best of both worlds? Give a child the gift of a happy holiday, and enjoy some tasty treats while you’re at it!


If you’re in the Chapel Hill area and looking to give a little this year, stay tuned!  We have the purr-fect opportunity planned for the Franklin St. store coming next week!

The Hopeless Romantic’s Guide to the Perfect Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day Desserts Sugarland Raleigh Chapel Hill

Now I’m sure you had the perfect Valentine’s Day evening already planned, and it was just ruined by all this snow, right? Well don’t worry, I’ve got a perfect backup plan for you that is sure to impress your special someone! I’ve broken Valentine’s Day down into five easy steps that will make sure your sweetie has the perfect, romantic evening.  [Read more…]

Valentine’s Day Kinda Sucks. We’re Here to Make it Better.

It’s a super stressful day whether you’re in a relationship or not.  Whether you’re saddled with trying to figure out the perfect date (and desperately trying to get reservations anywhere) or you are celebrating “Singles Awareness Day” with a bottle of wine, it’s not a day known for bringing joy to everyone.

Don’t get me wrong.  I love a day that applauds great relationships and give you an excuse to spoil your partner.  And I’m not one to get caught up in the “you should show your partner how much you love them everyday of the year” grumpiness.  But I do appreciate an opportunity to celebrate in a low-key way that doesn’t cost a fortune.
