How Sweet It Is
Fall is in the air and that means holiday baking is fast approaching. However, holiday baking is not always sugar and spice and everything nice. Some people love the idea of immersing themselves in holiday baking, while it gives others anxiety at the thought of coming up with new ideas for their sugary confections!
Two local businesses are hoping to change that with some great ideas for giving your holiday baking a makeover this baking season. Sweet Rolling Pins (www.sweetrollingpins.com) and Sugar Mill Antiques and Vintage Depot (www.sugarmillmead.com) have teamed up to offer customers a creative way to spice up their baking. Custom engraved rolling pins in a variety of designs (custom designs available) will be available in Northern Colorado at Sugar Mill Antiques and Vintage Depot opening late October at I-25 and Hwy 66 in Mead.
Sweet Rolling Pins is a Colorado company run by momprenuer Stacey Krems who’s spent the last 5 years working alongside her husband Kurt to hone the perfectly engraved rolling pin. Running the business from their family farm in rural Colorado, the family does not have a retail store. Hence, the partnership with Sugar Mill Antiques and Vintage Depot. Where Sweet Rolling Pins will be offered year round to customers in a retail setting.
Sweet Rolling Pins will hold free baking and technique classes in the coming months at Sugar Mill. These classes will demonstrate how to take your baking to the next level. Participants will also learn clever techniques they can use. For example, did you know with the rising cost of vanilla extract you can swap vanilla for maple syrup for a delicious cookie? Or spruce up boring sugar cookies by adding lemon or orange zest for a fun new flavor. Of course, having a Sweet Rolling pin is the ultimate way to revamp the cookie game!
