Gifts, like bad news and applause for ballet choreographed to Beastie Boys songs, are always better to give than to receive. Bequeath something that's sure to be well received with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a loaded gift bag at Gimmee Some Sugar, located in downtown Bakersfield.
Stephanie Caughell, owner and executive pastry chef at Gimmee Some Sugar, has been creating beautiful and delicious custom-baked goods for more than 10 years. Step into the bakery for an experience akin to a weekend at grandmother’s house, with everything made from scratch using quality ingredients and the TV remote nowhere to be found. Each gift bag satisfies sweet-teeth with the flavorful amalgamation of a triple-dipped caramel apple ball, a bag of loaded popcorn, two embellished Snyder's pretzels, two embellished crispy pops, and one cake lollipop. The finishing touches––decorative tissues and bows––provide eye candy for a gift bag perfect for celebrating a birthday, a parole hearing, or a return from a space station.
Gimmee Some Sugar is open Tuesdays through Saturdays.
Gimmee Some Sugar
Stephanie Caughell forged her career without compromise. Growing up, she wanted to be both an artist and a chef, so she followed her passions to pastry school, then to the kitchens of renowned dessert masters. Incorporating tips from celebrity chefs such as Anthony Bourdain and Mario Batali, Stephanie creates eye-catching cakes and cupcakes from scratch for her shop, Gimme Some Sugar.
Stephanie preps sweet treats for any occasion—whether it's a walk-in cupcake craving or a large wedding. Her versatility is reflected in each cake's presentation: some are elegant towers with petals or ivy winding down the sides, whereas others are carved into fairytale castles, designer handbags, or even Homer Simpson. They come in flavors such as cinnamon swirl and confetti, and hide cream fillings within their decadent tiers and hidden sub-frosting crawlspaces.
