Girls’ Night Out at The Sugar Path

Last week I attended The Sugar Path’s first Girls’ Night Out pop-up event, which was a lovely gathering of women. Owner Michelle Adams kindly invited me to bring my Maraviglia wax and wire pendants.

The Sugar Path was founded in 2011, when three sisters decided to pursue a love of baking. Michelle researched the food industry for 6 years prior to leaving her career as an attorney to embark on this venture with her family.

Initially the cupcakes and pies traveled to various farmers markets in the Geneva area, but when a storefront became available last summer, The Sugar Path expanded into a storefront operation. Their official ribbon cutting was on February 5.

Now the bakery has become a lovely gathering spot for after-school tutoring, post-work cupcake happy hours, and fun events like Girls Night Out. In addition to regular and alcohol-infused cupcakes, mini-pies and slices of pie, the cafe-style location offers teas, coffees, cocoa and milk.

Since I arrived early (The Sugar Path’s hours and menu are updated here), I had lunch at Graham’s 318, which served a fabulous egg salad sandwich and yummy hot cocoa.

I admired the snowy landscape as I walked around.

Then I stopped in at the Peaceful Parlour to stock up on tea and honey. Owner Shari had introduced her wares to us at the Geneva WIN Retreat.

Soon it was time to set up at the store.

I was happy to send my wire pendants off with new owners, including two of the girly hearts inspired by the shop owner’s daughter.

My collages are still up at The Sugar Path’s Market Place corner, so stop in and peruse the vendor shelves and don’t forget to pick up a cupcake or some pie!

My pendants wanted to jump into the Cowboy Pie (so I took one home).
