Today is the Day! Suga’s Birthday!

‘It a keep!’

I am truly blessed to have my Birthday fall on June 10th, when businesses are reopening, persons are heading back to work and well basically, the country is reopening. I find joy in spreading positive vibes and even though some of us including myself may feel naturally nervous about what the future will hold, we are ALL moving forward during and after Covid-19.

Stay tuned to SUGA, yes that’s the good ‘Suga’ with no ‘r’, as I continue to embrace and PROMOTE local and small businesses with love. My 2020 GW Art Collection is ongoing! Thanks to all who have supported GW Art from the very beginning and especially during Covid 19. Looking forward to new support too, as GW Art is for everyone!

During Love In The Time Of Corona continues as I ENTERTAIN you with my Restaurant Reviews and other Culinary outings and experiences.

I truly feel a huge void without the NBA Finals on my Birthday, but I look forward to its return with other Sports and entertaining you with commentary and updates for them too.

As a Certified Personal Trainer & Sports Nutritionist, I practice what I preach and I am pleased and proud to announce that I hit my ‘Dirty 30’ weight, also my Wedding Day weight once again!💪🏾 I am just a phone call away to EDUCATE.

Celebrate with Me!

Most importantly, please remember the Charity Fundraiser, Mariposa, that I am supporting for my Birthday to fight Childhood Cancer!  I am thankful to everyone I have INSPIRED to purchase Cupcakes and Donate to help save Rajé. Here are the details if you would like to participate or donate any day this week until Friday!

JOIN SUGA AND AID ALEX’S CREATIONS’ 2nd ANNUAL CUPCAKE FUNDRAISER TO FIGHT CHILDHOOD CANCER

20200608_132105_0000

Young, 9 year old, Rajé Josephs is currently fighting Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He was diagnosed at the age of 8.

What’s the difference between Hodgkin’s and Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma? 

NonHodgkin lymphoma may originate anywhere in the body, whereas Hodgkin lymphoma usually starts in the upper body, for instance in the neck, chest or armpits. Hodgkin’s lymphoma is often diagnosed at an early stage and is thus considered one of the most treatable cancers.

Rajé is described by his mom, Vanessa Morgan as very spirited and exceptionally bright, being ranked 15th in the Spelling Bee Championship of 2017. His ambition is to become a Medical Doctor.

Rajé is currently undergoing medical treatment at the University Hospital of the West Indies and is en route to start radiation treatment today. Our prayers are with him.

Alex’s Creations, Suga’s best Cupcake Artisan, will be offering a special of $1200JM for a box of 4 of their scrumptious Cupcakes this week until Friday, June 12th from 11am to 4pm. Part proceeds will be in aid of Cancer Treatment for Rajé.

Kudos to Baker and Owner of Alex’s Creations, Sophia Harris for taking on this initiative once again. #SugaSnaps

Please support ‘Mariposa’ and purchase cupcakes. You will help to save a life. Rajé, his family, Alex’s Creations and Suga will be extremely grateful.

XoXo,
Suga 💖

Winners and Highlights from the Sweetart Bake Expo!

The Sweetart Bake Expo held at The Jamaica Pegasus two Sundays ago had patrons in awe at the creativity of Cakes decorated and probably sent everyone’s sweet tooth into overdrive with the samples given.

There were On-stage demos and Presentations on Cake Decorating, as well as classes that were conducted, including one that was by a local instructor.

Sometimes a Cake is decorated well and doesn’t taste as good as it looks, but the proof is in the pudding. Suga was most impressed with the Piña Colada cupcake by Alex’s creations (@alexcreationsja). I tasted the rum first, followed by the coconut flavour,  then was hit with the sweet accentuated by the icing. Fantastic!

Other tasty highlights for Suga:
*Instagram tags in brackets

Cheesecake by Kelsey’s Kreations (@kelseyskreations_ja)

• Bread Pudding by Skimo’s Pastries (@skimos_pastries)

Banana Bread by La Jazz Sweet Tooth (@lajazzp_c)

Carrot Cake by Jhaneal Solomon (@savouritja)

Beer Jelly by Su Yen Green (@bakedbysue)

• Nestle’s offering of mouth-watering Bread pudding and other desserts made by using their products. Not to mention the Nestle Frappélatte that seems to be a hit everywhere it goes. It’s made with coffee and ice cream and is richly flavoured.

I know persons are straying from the traditional Fruit cakes for Weddings, but I only got two to taste that were not up to standard. Perhaps Blissful Bites by Delvena came close. Lemon cakes are now a popular choice for Weddings, but none of them hit the spot.

The presence of well-known Bakers was missed, but there are many on the rise with potential who were present and have been working on their craft for years. The Cake Decorating Competitions displayed high levels of skill and creativity, making things look so real.

Here are most of the Winners!
