Sarah, a custom cake baker who lives in Brooklyn, signed copies of her book Saturday afternoon at the Anthropologie store in Newport Beach, a perfect setting for the occasion since Sarah writes in her book that she grew up in a small Southern California beach community. A warm, lively personality and impeccable style are Sarah's hallmarks, judging from Saturday's appearance, her personal blog and book.
My favorite part about the event, which, frankly, made it possible for me to attend, is that children were welcome. A table was set aside for kids to fashion their own "no-bake, honey-peanut dough creatures," pictured on the plates here, from a recipe contained in a section of Sarah's book titled, "Children's Goodies."
My husband helped our two kids create a spider and a couple other critters using peanut butter dough, though it looks here like they were taking a break and enjoying a tasty cupcake, one of dozens baked by a talented Anthropologie staffer using recipes in Sarah's book.
