Introducing: Sprinkled

So many emotions as I share my first ever video mini series!

(The emotions are 5% because of this and 95% because I just spent my first 2 nights away from Noelle and she sort of said “ma ma” before I left and I’m a total basket case and I’m counting down the minutes until I see my baby girl tonight!!)

What began as a casual way to share recipes with my friends has blossomed into a life-changing career where I get to connect with equally passionate bakers around the world. When I first hit publish in 2011, I had ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what I was doing, I just knew that I LOVED doing it. And after 7 years, 3 cookbooks, mistakes, growth, and about 3 billion dishwasher cycles, I’m elated to say that my dedication, work ethic, and love for baking hasn’t faded. At all.

But it’s time for something more. This past April, a video production crew filmed me at work in my kitchen. Most of the time together was spent filming 8 step-by-step recipe tutorials, but they also filmed me working, writing, editing, photographing, and recipe testing. The inspiration behind all of this:

  • craving a deeper connection – I want to give you the front row seat so you can see what goes into each recipe and blog post, as well as life as a mother and business owner.
  • inspire – seeing my recipes come together in a video may inspire you to try it yourself!
  • trying something new – because entertainment is fun!

My video mini series is called Sprinkled. ♥

Episode 1

Episode 1 recipe: Homemade Strawberry Cake

The kick-off episode is Strawberry Cake. I chose this recipe because it’s 100% from-scratch strawberry cake made from real strawberries and has become a reader favorite since I published it in January. The process is a little unique where you begin with reduced strawberry puree and finish with strawberry frosting made from freeze-dried strawberries. It’s a FUN cake and I thought you’d love seeing it come together on camera!

  1. This is just the cutest!!!! I love how easy and delicious all your recipes are. Definitely wouldn’t be a baker without you! ❤️

  2. Wow! What a great, informative video. This is truly wonderful. Thank you so much! You are so good at this.

  3. Hi sally.
    I like your series sprinkled . I watched your episode 2 about the fudge brownies
    And I thought it was great.I pinned the fishy brownies recipe you showed in the video into my Pinterest cooking board
    I know my husband will like them as well.
    Congratulations on your sprinkled series.
    I hope you will have many more recipe episodes.

    1. Thank you, Heather! I’ve been having so much fun with these! 🙂

  4. Sally, I sincerely thank your expertise in how to get the strawberry essence to shine through. I had been experimenting for years without success on this till I accidentally found your page. I added the strawberry reduction to my Trader Joe vanilla cake mix batter. Voila! Now, instead of frosting, I ground up freeze dried strawberries with cocoa powder and sugar and dusted the tops before baking. I imagine one can use blueberries in reduction too. I am singing your praises to my friends.

  5. Sally, I’ve been reading your blog for a long time (can even claim to having your books). I just saw your video on you tube while my granddaughter (5) was watching something. I loved it..giant chocolate chip cookies. She was so excited…

  6. Kelly Petersen says:

    This is perfect! My parents are celebrating their anniversary and asked for a strawberry cake! Now, I won’t have to go through all of the trials and errors of figuring it out. Thank you Sally!

  7. Love this cake! Have made it about 4 times and wow what a hit! So I went to my fav strawberry patch (in Sonoma Calif) and made up 6 batches of strawberry puree for the winter when we all need a taste of summer!
    I have made so many of your recipes and all have been wonderful with out fail!

    1. I’m thrilled you love it so much! And I’m so envious of your freezer stash of fresh strawberry puree – hahA! So great that you thought ahead!
