About Sugar Bites

My name is Megan Field and I started Sugar Bites as a fun hobby out of my home in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. I have a full time job but since I love to bake and decorate cakes I decided to give it a whirl for fun.

Because I have a full time job, I have to limit the number of cakes I make and when I make them. I am starting to only do cakes for friends and family starting in summer 2012. However, I can be enticed to make a cake for you if you have a really cool idea for one!

I DO NOT use any kind of boxed mixes for my cakes and goodies. As well as tried and true recipes like the very moist and delicious Hershey Deep Dark Chocolate Cake, I am always interested in trying new recipes and decorating techniques. So keep watching as I build my menu of products and flavors. If you have a suggestion, please let me know!

Thank you for visiting my site!

The story of Sugar Bites:

Ever since I was a kid, I totally looked up to my Aunt Pat who lives in the states because she always made beautiful and yummy cakes. Every time I got to go to a cousin’s wedding, I always loved the cakes and couldn’t believe that someone I knew made them! I always thought it would be so much fun to make pretty cakes like hers.

During church camp one year, I was very excited to find that cake decorating was a class I could take! Not very “outdoorsy” for camp, but very exciting. I learned how to make borders and roses and all kinds of delicious decorations!

When I was done high school, I took a break from schooling because I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. During that time, I secretly toyed with the idea of moving to the states and getting a job…and secretly thought it would be really cool to work with or at least live near my Aunt Pat so I could learn how to make those beautiful cakes. But I ended up staying in Saskatoon and taking office administration instead.

Every office job that I have had, I’ve always brought in baking treats. I’ve always loved to bake, but I can’t possibly eat everything that I bake or I’d be 600 pounds! I’ve always gotten compliments for my baking. Over the years I’ve experimented with different and better ingredients to make even better goodies.

In 2008, my friend and co-worker Jackie got engaged and half-jokingly asked me to make her wedding cake because she loved my baking. I laughed it off at first, but I started to give it some serious thought. It was something I was always interested in….why not?

So I signed up for Wilton cake decorating classes at Michaels. I accumulated all kinds of supplies and tips and tricks and techniques and had a fantastic teacher.

Then I just started making cakes for friends and family and slowly more and more people started asking for cakes. I posted pictures on Facebook and on this blog and between that and word of mouth, I’ve kept busy.

Then I actually DID make Jackie’s wedding cake for August 1, 2009!
