Artist Interview

Tracy Collins of SugarBakers Cake Truck

February 4, 2014

Tracy Collins of the Sugar Baker Cake Truck
 

Are you a "frosting" or "cake" person? Tracy Collins of SugarBakers Cake Truck won't make you choose. Her edible art is a confluence of flavor, taste, and...let's just say it...sweet sweet love. Using organic and local ingredients, Tracy Collins and her team are not only masters of the desert, but mindful and thoughtful local business owners as well: a mobile cakery with heart and soul. Not to mention that the cupcakes are to-die-for. We sampled (ie: scarfed down) their Salted Caramel, Snickers, and Double Chocolate creations, and can all attest to their sugary greatness. Let us treat you to some of Tracy and the SugarBakers' culinary love this Arts Night Out at Ode: Valentine's Day 6-8pm. Tracy will be there with frosting and cake in hand. Meet Queen-of-the-Treats Tracy.
