My name is Sara, and I am the creator of Sift & Swirl! I started this blog as a way to explore my passions for baking, writing, photography, and design. Though my husband and I love cooking a wide variety of foods, cupcakes have always held a special place in my heart. By day I am a graphic designer, and putting those gorgeous finishing touches on my cupcakes really allows me to use my design background and be creative. When I was younger, my mother gave me a set of cake tips along with some cake decorating books. After learning some basic techniques, it opened my eyes to how much I enjoyed baking and decorating cupcakes. After several years of obsessively watching cooking and baking shows, as well as practicing and experimenting with lots of flavors and techniques, I decided it was time to start my own blog!
