One Year Blogiversary!




I can't believe a whole year has gone by since I started my little blog. Where has the time gone?

It has been an incredible year for me: blogging, teaching, traveling, making new DVDs..... But the very best part for me is getting to interact with you guys. Corresponding with you, and meeting you when I travel is truly the greatest part of my job.

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your love and loyalty. And to show my appreciation, SugarEd is going to have a give-away to celebrate the first anniversary of our blog. YAY!!! WOOOOOO HOOOOOO! Cheeers and whistles!!!

We are going to give away a $100 shopping spree at http://www.sugaredproductions.com/

Yes, you read that right! $100!!

To be entered into the drawing, just leave a comment telling your favorite internet blog.

I look forward to what this next year holds; and I hope we continue to provide you with information you enjoy.

Happy 1st Anniversary SugarEd Lagniappe!

Wow! Thats very generous! I'd have enormous trouble naming just one blog, but I think it would have to be serious eats, for an all round interesting, funny and educational blog about food.

~Mama Skates~ said...

ljchris said...

Sharon, the biggest thrill for me was seeing one of my cakes on your blog. You asked for examples of techniques learned from your DVD's. Mine was the zebra stripe cake. Also meeting you and seeing your demonstration in Alvin. Cool!

But my favorite blog doesn't have anything to do with cakes though. It's Pioneer Woman.

Lauren said...

I have so many favorites right now. There is my favorite cake blogs such as yours and cake wrecks, my favorite family types like cjane and nienie, my favorite sewing ones like sommer designs and artsycraftybabe. So many more.

Happy blogiversary!!

Gayla said...

I have to admit, when you notified me of your new blog and first started blogging, I didn't have a clue how to blog myself, felt quite intimidated with the entire process, but now I throughly enjoy it. I'm so glad that you were bold enough to start blogging and I can't believe it's been a year already, congrats!

I enjoy all of your blogs; however, I do have a couple of favorites, your blog about how to use icing glaze technique directly on to cookies and/or cakes, love that one, printed it out and have used it several times. Also, your blog about how you made your friends 50th birthday cake, that was an awesome cake and loved the video as well!

I enjoy reading your blog not only for it's educational value, but it's truly entertaining.

Keep up the good work!

Niliquely (Nicole) said...

When I first read the post I thought I was supposed to comment about my favorite post on YOUR blog, not favorite blog site - oops! (I'm sort of scatterbrained like that) I was going to put I loved the one about your sister and the cherries and the cake you made that looked like a cherry! Um....I do have to confess that your blog is tied with Anne Heap's Pink Cake Box blog for my fav though. You both do fantastic work - so flawless - and are great ladies! You are funnier though! ;-)

H. Glover said...

Congratulations on your One Year Blogiversary!!! Wow, time really does fly. I wish you all the best with your future endeavors my friend.

Wishing you all the best!

If you think this year has been something, just see what the next one will bring. Rock on Sister! :D

Right now my favorite blog is (apologies to anyone if this offends but I didn't name it) "f**k yeah cupcakes." I swear that's the name. The thing is, there are some really cool cupcake pics on there. Some I'd never heard of before. Anyway, thanks.

Favorite Blogs: Yours, Cake Central and The Pioneer Woman

Happy Anniversary!

Kimweir said...

Happy Anniversary! You and Wilbur need to go out on the town for a diet coke and some M&M's!!
Ok, maybe Im just blond here, but I must of misunderstoond the question. When your telling us to give you our favorite blog, are you asking for a favorite company/person's blog or a favorite entry of yours?
I have to say I dont read any other blog but yours. I still say you need to write a book because you crack me up! My favorite entry is a toss up between the one when you took the pictures at the zoo (the gorilla was awesome) or the one when you did the birthday cake that had the pop up hat and it telling your nephew Happy Birthday from Reagan!
Either way, I look forward to your blogs, they really make my day!
Keep'on blogging!

Denise said...

Happy Blogiversary Sharon! My favorite blogs are of course yours, Cake Journal and Bakerella.

You introduced them to us way back in January, I think. I just LOVE seeing those new recipes! Thanks for all that you do Sharon, although I havent quite figured out yet, how you manage to do it all.

Favorite Blog....geeze where to begin, first and foremost I love your blog. Because of you I've learned so much from the blog, from nifty techniques to just being courageous enough to try new stuff. As a matter of fact because of such inspiration I've started my own blog @ www.sweets-n-cookies.blogspot.com. You are an amazing woman Sharon Zambito, I can't wait to see what else is in store for you!

Much Luv...Chris!

Happy 1st Blogiversary!!

My fave blogs are all cake-related since I am new to cake decorating (only been doing it for about 3-4 months). My fave are CakeJournal, CakeWrecks, & yours of course. I just found out about them recently and hoping that I could bought your instructions DVD someday. It looks awesome.

Geri said...

Congratulations on the anniversary! My favorite blog would have to be Cake Wrecks. I just recently found yours, though, and I do like it!

Stacey Hunt said...

I laughed watching Julie & Julia as Julie connected with her inner Julia as she cooked and blogged about it!! I sat there thinking, now what baking cook book could I bake through!! I totally love your blog, Pink Cake Box, Sweet Treats on Flicker and maggieholmesphotography.com. Cakes and photography are my two loves in life (other than my family!!) Congrats on a year with your blog!! Thanks for dedicating so much time and effort to your productions!!

Rose-Lynn said...

First and for most, Happy Blogiversary! I can't pick just one blog as my favorite as there's a list that I check each morning. Those included are of course yours, Cake Wrecks, Pioneer Woman, Bakerella, The Frosted Cake 'n Cookie (on Tuesdays), and The Cookie Mama.

Vicki said...

Happy Birthday to you and MANY more! I love your blog because of it not only very informative, but witty and well written!!!! :)

Jessica said...

sharon - you are truly a cake angel (i've said it before and i'll say it again). i don't know how many times you and your techniques have saved me from certain cake disaster.

to be honest, i don't really have another favorite blog except yours. my favorite blog of yours, though, was when you shared your family with us. it's nice to be able to get to know you and those you love to get a better understanding of who you are.

you are a blessing to so many and i can tell you are also blessed. keep up the good work!

I can't thank you enough for your blog, videos, and helping heart! I have learned so much from you. I started decorating cakes just about a year ago, and have really improved thanks to you!

I have the 2 DVD's I need to complete my collection on my Christmas list already (and have shown DH and other family members several times which ones I want!!)

.thanks from the bottom of my heart, your blog and video's have taught me so much. for many years i hoped there would be a intrest in cake decorating so me a self taught decorator could grow more. thanks again for all you've done

Grandma Tillie's Bakery said...

vettie said...

Happy Blogiversary!!!!

I would have to say that your blog, mysweetandsaucy, cakewrecks, and bakerella are among my top favorites... but the problem is I keep finding more and more to keep track of.. lol :)

Congrats, again on a wonderful first year of blogging!

The Well said...

Congrats on your Blog Birthday! (they grow up so fast, don't they?) Cake Wrecks is my daily dose of guilty pleasure, so I'll have to vote for it! Keep up the amazing work! You are such an inspiration! Thanks!

Elaine said...

Happy Blogiversary! Thanks for all your inspiration and great videos! You're my favorite blog about confectionery delights. I also make paper crafts and have some favorites in that area.

Jayni said...

Favorite blog would be any cake you do...I love looking at new cake designs. The other would have to be when you showed us how you attempt to organize everything. It was nice to see that I'm not only one who attempts to keep my house beautiful looking on the outside, but open a pantry door and as hard as I try it still looks crazy unorganized.

You take the cake! Seriously, I have learned so much from your blog and videos! I am so grateful! Teach us how to make a Peony!! When will you teach a class in Miami, FL?

Rylan said...

I have a few favorites. Other than yours, I also enjoy reading Bakerella, Sweetopia and Cake Journal. They share fresh and creative ideas to make sweets look more fun. I also love how they provide step by step pictures from start to finish. Oh and I also love the photography that comes with it.

Vanessa said...

Hands down, Sharon, your blog rocks! The tutorials, advice, and encouragement are priceless. For a good belly-laugh, Cakewrecks is a must-read. Bakerella always has nifty gadget advice. So many great blogs out there for us cakers! BTW, Happy Blogiversary!

Jacque said...

Congratulations, Sharon! That is awesome! Hard to believe it's been a year. Your blog is beautiful and inspiring, as in all things you do.

My favorite blog? seems like it changes every day. Right now I'm intrigued by a totally non-food blog called theuniformproject.com. A girl is wearing the same dress (style anyway) every day for a year and making it look different by accessorizing and layering. I don't look as good as she does any day of the year, LOL. She's raising money and using it to help educate kids in India. Food related favorites are foodgawker.com, http://lacasserolecarree.blogspot.com (you can click a flag button to translate to English) and http://foodlibrarian.blogspot.com/... gosh there are too many to list.

Thanks for hosting a giveaway and here's to another year of sugared!

WOW.. to leave just one is just not nice to ask..lol

ok, so I have to say that I had the greatest laugh today sitting here at my desk reading your latest blog "Swamp Thing class photos" It shows how much you are dedicated to your love of teaching and what you do...but the FUNNIEST thing BY FAR is that LONG story about why your hair looked like it did...LMAO !
Sharon, that just made me pee in my pants ( ok ok not literally).

Thanks for the great laughs and inspiration!

Beesweetshoppe said...

Sharon, I don't think I have a favorite. Your a GREAT teacher. I have learned so much from you. I love reading your stories. You make me laugh. I have most of your videos however, I look forward to taking one of your classes some day.
