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. I’ve just finished watching the inaugural episode and I love it! Coincidentally I baked and froze the strawberry cake last Sunday but I messed up the baking soda and baking powder. It smelled so good so I hope the cake still turns out acceptable for my son’s party on Saturday. I’m using ermine buttercream with freezedried strawberry powder for the frosting because cream cheese frosting seems just too soft for my climate. I’ll be sure to update after my party. Thank you for being an inspiration and great baking teacher, Sally!

    1. Thank you so much Joyce!

  2. Such a cool video!! And so professionally done. I love that you didn’t skimp on any steps like measuring or reducing. It helps to see the consistency of reduced pureed strawberries and how you trim cake tops. That 1/3 tip about the frosting though, just made my day. I never know how much frosting to use between cake layers and how much to use for the sides. Can’t wait for more Sprinkled episodes!!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind feedback! I hope you enjoy the upcoming episodes 🙂

  3. Hi sally can I use greek yogurt in place of sour cream I really want to try it but sour cream isn’t sold in my country

    1. Yes, absolutely! Same amount.

  4. This is amaaaazing Sally!! I love seeing how you branch out so often and do new things even while being such a great blogger and baker. Very inspirational. And yay for Noelle’s first ‘mama’, how cute is that!!!!

    1. Thank you so much for watching and for your positive feedback!! 🙂

  5. You are awesome

    1. Thank you!

  6. You are such an inspiration, Sally! Absolutely loving the new Sprinkled video series, including the bites of real life. Your passion is contagious and has made baking one of my hobbies and something I look forward to! Thank you!! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Tina!! I’m thrilled baking is a hobby of yours – one of the best out there! 🙂

  7. Sally! I LOVE this mini series! Is it weird to say that you’re so cute? Lol. As a fellow hand talker I have to say I love the hand gestures when you talk! Also.. WHERE did you get Noelles sprinkle leggings and how can I get a pair for Lily!? You have a beautiful family AND a beautiful house. Looking forward to the rest of the series! And looking for any excuse to make that cake.. serious yum!

    1. Oh Stephanie! You are so sweet! Noelle’s leggings are from Carter’s. SO CUTE. Happy baking!!

  10. You had me at Sprinkled! I love the name and think it suits this series so perfectly. I love the behind the scenes. I realize often that as a blog reader and not a blogger myself, the shear amount of work it takes to produce and publish each post. Now if you only had your own show on Food network, we’d be all set. 🙂 Seriously though can’t wait to see more of the series. Thank you for all of your hard work. It truly inspires me to work harder and bake more! And YAY to Noelle saying Mama!!

    1. Thank you, Courtney! It is lots of work but so incredibly worth it and rewarding! I love sharing this inside look with my readers and I’m thrilled you enjoyed it! 🙂

  28. This is so inspiring! You’re amazing, Sally!

  29. This looks amazing! So excited to check out the first episode when I get access to YouTube (imagine it is blocked at work!? haha).

    1. Hope you love it! Thanks Kelly!

  30. Hi Sally! So excited for Sprinkled 🙂 Your blog is my go-to resource for delicious recipes and baking tips. I have a question about measuring flour. I’ve used the “spoon and level” method before. However, my preferred method is to use my kitchen scale to measure out the specified weight in your recipe (e.g., 150 g). Is this method of measuring flour also okay to use? Thank you!

    1. Hi Heather! Thank you! I always suggest the spoon & level method because I know most home bakers don’t own a kitchen scale. I use my kitchen scale all the time when I’m testing recipes and if you have one, I definitely recommend using it.
