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. Hi Sally! Love the new video series and look forward to more episodes and of course new recipes from you. You are definitely an inspiration to me! Thanks so much!

  2. You have such a natural, genuine voice on the blog and this also translates to video – you could totally have a baking show! Thanks for keeping things fresh and adding all these new types of content, I learn so much! Also – your house is GORGEOUS!

  3. Great video Sally, thanks so much! I noticed you used the whisk beater do you always us that instead of the paddle when making cakes? I’m going to make this cake this afternoon, can’t wait!!

    1. I use either the paddle or whisk. Sometimes I find the whisk creates a much smoother batter. 🙂 But either attachments are fine!

  4. This is so great, Sally! Loved the transitions between the recipe and you just talking about your blog community and personal life. I truly enjoyed it and am definitely looking forward to future episodes. What a unique idea! Congratulations on living out an incredible dream and being a mama at the same time 🙂

  5. Hi Sally,

    Love your site and the recipes. I recently had a computer crash and lost all my data and favorites. Where do you purchase your sprinkles and other add-ins for baking? I am looking for a site that has fresh tasting sprinkles that does not require you to buy pounds pf a single item. thanks and congratulations.

    I love your new video series, Sprinkled”. You truly make baking look like fun! I make so many of your recipes and always get complements on everything. You are an amazing teacher! I have been following your blog since the beginning, and I love everything about it. Can’t wait to see more!

  14. It’s so great to be able to hear your explanations. I enjoy the blog posts for sure, but it is also helpful to hear you talk through why you do certain things. Love this format!

  15. I really enjoyed the video – watching how you made the cake is great. I like visual aids! Great job and I look forward to the remaining episodes!!

  16. Sally — you have been my virtual teacher for several years through your blog posts, but this new Spinkled series is, well, the sprinkle on top! I bet in a few years you’ll have your own TV show. You are a complete natural, and it is so fun to watch you behind-the-scenes in your own kitchen. I am so proud to be a part of this baking community. Similar to your beginnings, I currently work an office job but pursue my passion for baking on the side. Can’t wait to see more of these episodes! 🙂

  17. Congratulations! I am not a cake eater because they are usually dry and have no flavor but I will try this one. I love strawberries! Thank you!!

  18. This is incredibly beautiful Sally! I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed watching this and looking forward to the next video. I absolutely feel you have made baking approachable and less daunting for me even though I’m still too terrified to give croissants a go and I do not like ice-cream and cake. You make it seem so easy, even if I don’t comment on everything you post, I am here reading, watching, trying it out and sharing your blog with anyone who cares to listen to me. I owe my baking skills & confidence to you so thank you, thank you and thank you! Congrats on the new series – the sky is not the limit 🙂

I saw two diferent cakes in this video, one was the three tiered vanilla cake with strawberry frosting and the two tiered strawberry cake with strawberry frosting… and these the same recipe??
