The bakers at Sift, a winner on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, whip up and frost a delectable medley of inventive sweet treats. Available in 14 flavors, Sift’s adorably decorated mini cakes help patrons celebrate the arrival of new babies or the retirement of beloved office poltergeists. Snackers can mix and match the cupcakery’s creative concoctions, including the Stud Muffin—brown-sugar beer cake with caramel frosting and cayenne bacon—and the snickerdoodle, with rotating seasonal selections such as Pun’kin and peppermint twist for eclectic dozens of pint-size sweets.

Sift’s cupcake craftsmen impart their decorating expertise to a crop of budding dessertists in their cupcake-decorating classes, available for bakers of all skill levels. The small class size and hands-on instruction foster ample opportunities for students to master skills such as piping frosting, shaping fondant, creating gum-paste flowers, and operating the regulation cake-shrinking ray gun. Classes fill up with ten enrollments, so early registration is recommended; click here to view the schedule.

Sift Dessert Bar

Though Andrea Ballus' wedding frustrations propelled her into reality-television fame, the camera never focused on personal drama—instead, it zoomed in on the cupcakes. As she planned her marriage, Andrea couldn't find a bakery innovative enough to cater her reception. Rather than settle for tired designs, she decided to create her own cupcakes, mixing confections in signature flavors and garnishing them with edible art. These concepts led to the first incarnation of Sift—a dessert venue whose ingenious edibles have since won first place on the Food Network's Cupcake Wars and returned to compete on Cupcake Champions.

Sift Dessert Bar's current cupcake menu pays homage to classic tastes as well as cunning combinations, from the Snickerdoodle and Samoa to the Berry Good Cheesecake—a vanilla cake atop a graham cracker crust, filled with raspberry jam and topped with cream cheese frosting. Visitors can pluck their favorites from the onsite displays or order custom servings that suit a wedding or party theme. In the past, Andrea and her staff have festooned cakes with images of cheerful dragonflies, company logos, and Pink Floyd album art as well as holiday graphics for New Year's and Christmas.

Alongside their signature item, Sift prepares a separate catalog of nostalgic desserts, including whoopie cookies, french macarons, and ice-cream sandwiches.
