A Long Overdue Update...

As many probably know, the Greenpoint Food Market is no longer in operation — for now. Details and information about the events that lead to the market's untimely shut down, as well as big plans for the future can be read here. I am still in the process of looking for a venue to make Sweeties available to the public and look forward to becoming a part of the incubator kitchen that the GFM is planning to open in Greenpoint.

In the meantime, as the summer begins to draw to a close, I am looking ahead to fall and beginning to work on some new pure vegetarian/vegan Sweeties flavors: Pumpkin Spice with Maple Bourbon Buttercream frosting, and Chocolate Pecan with Molasses Rum Buttercream.

The new recipes are currently being developed and I hope to have them taste-tested and ready to add to the Sweeties flavors roster by the end of October.

Please stay in touch and keep checking back as more information for both Sweeties and the Greenpoint Food Market continues to develop. You can also follow along with my other culinary adventures here.

June's Greenpoint Food Market: Red Hot Summer

The next Greenpoint Food Market will be held on June 26 at Church of Messiah, 129 Russell Street (in Greenpoint, Brooklyn), and as much as I loved participating in May's Market, I'm sorry to say that I won't be there for this one. I have a wedding to attend in Philadelphia, and since I can't be in two places at once (yet)...

Hopefully I'll see you all at July's GFM, and I'm currently looking into more options for giving everyone who has been asking about where they can get Sweeties a chance to try and buy them.

See you in July!

Sweetiesnyc.com


Hi everyone! Just a quick note to let you know that a full website is coming soon. I have amazing product photos from a shoot I did in April with photographer Nathan Sayers (whom I've worked with many times over the years), and half of the site pages are designed. I'm hoping to have the site ready to launch by the end of June, so I'll keep you posted. I'm also working on the possibility of packaging a dry, prepare-at-home mix for each flavor. For now, I will continue to update the blog as necessary, and please feel free to contact me at sweetiesnyc [at] gmail.com for further information about Sweeties if you have any questions.

The Greenpoint Food Market


Thank you to everyone who stopped by the Sweeties New York Pastry Co. table at the Greenpoint Food Market today — it was wonderful to see so many new as well as familiar faces.

Pictured above from left to right you can see moi after we first arrived, getting things together and steering the Sweeties ship; a sampling of some of the final Sweeties cupcakes in both flavors and sizes (the ones on the left are Carrot and the ones on the right are Banana); and a shot of the busy Greenpoint Food Market, bustling with food lovers from all parts of Brooklyn and beyond.

We definitely had a great day and I look forward to more in the future!
