What inspired you to start your business?
The owners, Andrea and Jeff Ballus were planning their 2007 Wine Country Wedding. Andrea always had a knack for fine foods and fancy dessert. She also grew up in a household where homemade was the only way. She wanted to have the sweetest and trendiest custom dessert bar for her wedding and nothing satisfied her craving. She even had to ship her cupcakes from Las Vegas, she knew there was a missing market and Sonoma County needed something like Sift. That’s when it all began.
What options for customization do you offer?
The beauty of Sift Dessert Bar is the customization. From the décor, to the flavor, to the actual dessert, it can all be customized. If the couple wants a new dessert that they tried for the first time in Paris, we will create it. We can even recreate their favorite nostalgic childhood dessert that they enjoyed every birthday as a kid. You name it… we create it. We offer custom color schemes, tinted glitter, handmade fondant décor, specialty cakes, and unique flavors.
If you could give one tip to couples who are planning a wedding, what would it be?
If we could give one piece of advice to our clients it would be to: Listen to the professionals! Choose your vendors wisely and thrust their judgment when it comes to helping you plan your special day. Also, never go to bed angry.

Wedding cake, cupcakes, candy/cookie bar? Which is your personal favorite?
We want it all! If we could choose, we would have a full dessert bar with cupcakes, ice cream sammies, pies, cutting cakes, fruit tarts, donuts, and cookies! We would even throw a potato chip bar in there for fun!
